Our Mission
WAWA/WeAreWideAwake is my Public Service to America as a muckracker who has journeyed seven times to Israel Palestine since June 2005. WAWA is dedicated to confronting media and governments that shield the whole truth.

We who Are Wide Awake are compelled by the "fierce urgency of Now" [Rev MLK, Jr.] to raise awareness and promote the human dialogue about many of the crucial issues of our day: the state of our Union and in protection of democracy, what life is like under military occupation in Palestine, the Christian EXODUS from the Holy Land, and spirituality-from a Theologically Liberated Christian Anarchist POV.

"We're on a mission from God."
The Blues Brothers

"Observe good faith and justice towards all nations; cultivate peace and harmony with all...and passionate attachments for others, should be excluded; and that, in place of them, just and amicable feelings towards all should be cultivated. The nation which indulges towards another a habitual hatred or a habitual fondness is in some degree a slave...a passionate attachment of one nation for another produces a variety of evils."
George Washington's Farewell Address - 1796

February 19, 2012: Days of Awareness and About The Money: Part 1

 

 

[Tallahassee, Fl.]--Last week, Tea Party advocates and activists for homeowner’s rights converged in the state capitol during mental health week on Homeless Advocacy Day.

 

On Thursday, the Florida House of Representatives unanimously approved House Bill 531, sponsored by Rep. Betty Reed (D-Tampa) that authorizes the collection of voluntary contributions in the amount of one dollar to be added to motor vehicle registration and driver's license fees (both initial and renewal fees) to aid the homeless.

 

Reed said, “It only takes the loss of a few paychecks and anyone of us could be homeless. Middle Class people who thought they were set for life are now homeless. We need a day for members of our government to think about and visit the homeless, so that we can prevent it. We need a Day of Awareness and we must end homelessness.”


firefighter-homeless! Booker T. Perry came from Orlando to tell Tallahassee, "I was a firefighter for twenty-two years and lost my house over $2,000.00"



The President of the Florida Supportive Housing Coalition, Shannon Nazworth added, “The face of homelessness is not changing-it’s expanding and it’s the people in your pew at church. People who once volunteered and donated at shelters are now coming for help.”



Dana Humphrey, is an unpaid lobbyist for multiple social justice causes and I saw her last in Melbourne, Fl. on 25 February 2008, when she had long brown locks at:

The Walid Shoebat Show and "America is Beautiful, but she has an ugly side"


pink activist

 

 

Dana’s hair now is “raspberry-komikaze pink” and she barely took a breath as she explained why she took a bus from New Smyrna Beach to oppose the Orwellian labeled ‘Fair Foreclosure Act’ [House Bill 213, Senate Bill 1890] because if passed it will turn Florida into a non-judicial state without due process for homeowners. The bill violates constitutional and property rights and if passed into law it will expedite the foreclosure process through an unconstitutional process that favors the lender and thus will create more homeless families.

Central Florida Realtor Gerri Gallo, added that US Congress is now considering a program called HARP, which is designed to help struggling homeowners who purchased homes before 2007. Because home values have dropped and homeowners are unable to sell the Federal government could help homeowners’ instead of banks with the passage of HARP. It will offer Fannie Mae or Freddie Mac mortgages to be refinanced at a lower rate and without any appraisal. Those with adjustable mortgages will be able to obtain a fixed rate at the current rate of about 3.0%, thus enabling many to remain in their home.


 

Cliff Johnson Jr. and his son represented the Republican Liberty Caucus, a movement within the GOP that recruits and endorses candidates who support individual liberty and limited government.

 

Cliff Johnson III said, “The Tea-Party lost their vision and we are working within the party to bring it back to its constitutional roots. It is difficult work as many hardliners are about electing anyone but Obama but we have a perfect opportunity to elect a liberty minded individual and liberty means freedom. These words-right, left, progressive, conservative have lost meaning but there is right and there is wrong and there is liberty or tyranny.”

 

Another advocate for the homeless added that the issue is rooted in job security and education is the way out of poverty.

 

I live in Lake County, which has a population of about 300,000. In the 2006-2007 school year, the Florida Department of Education identified 195 homeless children in the county. In 2010-2011, 2,992 homeless children were identified. Homelessness is defined as living with friends or in emergency or transitional shelters, FEMA trailers, cars, parks, public and private places not ordinarily used by human being to live and sleep in and all those who have been abandoned.

 

 

Tea Party people sported buttons that read, “It’s the Spending STUPID” but I was unable to find any who would discuss the moral imperative to do something to stem the epidemic of homeless children within their own communities.



‘Stupid spending’ by the Federal Government is one reason why the States are struggling to meet the basic needs of residents in their communities.

 

As the federal debt continues to climb, President Obama has increased his request for military aid to Israel to $3.1 billion from $3.075 billion in 2012.

 

From 2009 to 2018, the United States is scheduled to give Israel, which is already the largest recipient of U.S. assistance, $30 billion in military aid, which is used to sustain the illegal 44-year military occupation of the Palestinian West Bank, East Jerusalem, and Gaza Strip.

 

Israel also misuses U.S. weapons in violation of U.S. law to kill and injure Palestinian civilians, destroy Palestinian civilian infrastructure, blockade the Gaza Strip, and build illegal settlements in West Bank and East Jerusalem.

 

Taxpayers from Florida provide $1.5 billion to Israel, which could instead be used to provide affordable housing for 17,845 people, or 24,397 green jobs, or 43,455 children could be engaged in early reading programs.

"HOPE has two children.The first is ANGER at the way things are. The second is COURAGE to DO SOMETHING about it."-St. Augustine

 "He who is not angry when there is just cause for anger is immoral. Why? Because anger looks to the good of justice. And if you can live amid injustice without anger, you are immoral as well as unjust." - Aquinas

The Paradoxical Commandments
by Dr. Kent M. Keith

People are illogical, unreasonable, and self-centered.
Love them anyway.

If you do good, people will accuse you of selfish ulterior motives.
Do good anyway.

If you are successful, you win false friends and true enemies.
Succeed anyway.

The good you do today will be forgotten tomorrow.
Do good anyway.

Honesty and frankness make you vulnerable.
Be honest and frank anyway.

The biggest men and women with the biggest ideas can be shot down by the smallest men and women with the smallest minds.
Think big anyway.

People favor underdogs but follow only top dogs.
Fight for a few underdogs anyway.

What you spend years building may be destroyed overnight.
Build anyway.

People really need help but may attack you if you do help them.
Help people anyway.

Give the world the best you have and you'll get kicked in the teeth.
Give the world the best you have anyway.

© 1968, 2001 Kent M. Keith

" In the final analysis, it is between you and God.  It was never between you and them anyway."-Mother Teresa


“You cannot talk like sane men around a peace table while the atomic bomb itself is ticking beneath it. Do not treat the atomic bomb as a weapon of offense; do not treat it as an instrument of the police. Treat the bomb for what it is: the visible insanity of a civilization that has ceased...to obey the laws of life.”- Lewis Mumford, 1946



The age of warrior kings and of warrior presidents has passed. The nuclear age calls for a different kind of leadership....a leadership of intellect, judgment, tolerance and rationality, a leadership committed to human values, to world peace, and to the improvement of the human condition. The attributes upon which we must draw are the human attributes of compassion and common sense, of intellect and creative imagination, and of empathy and understanding between cultures."  - William Fulbright



“Any nation that year after year continues to raise the Defense budget while cutting social programs to the neediest is a nation approaching spiritual death.” - Rev. MLK
Establishment of Israel
"On the day of the termination of the British mandate and on the strength of the United Nations General Assembly declare The State of Israel will be based on freedom, justice and peace as envisaged by the prophets of Israel: it will ensure complete equality of social and political rights to all its inhabitants irrespective of religion it will guarantee freedom of religion [and] conscience and will be faithful to the Charter of the United Nations." - May 14, 1948. The Declaration of the Establishment of Israel
