All too often it can prove edgy to speak your mind.  I get that. Your values surface to the tip of your tongue but you hold tight for fear that you’ll expose a part of yourself at odds with your co-workers; at odds with your spouse, church or employer.“Do I dare speak up?”How do you decide?The answer requires a slight detour.  Let’s focus on an unintended consequence of our military-industrial complex:  the steady loss of life.  Be it the loss of bio-diversity, the creation of toxic waste,…See More

The Underlying Hook

Hundreds of times a day you and I swim around our respective fish bowl interacting with the bait of our consumer society.  Advertisements are everywhere we turn.“Bite on this, won’t you?” We’re shown the seductive characteristics of a product – the bait – but we’re not shown the underlying, hidden hook.What do I mean by that? What hook?Let’s open our eyes wider and explore the consequences of consuming the bait…Every time we get hooked and ingest some bait we also consume an obligation to…See More

'Living Democracy' meets to create local campaign and initiating group at 3310 NW Avenue in B'ham

February 1, 2011 from 4pm to 6pm
After a whirlwind weekend in which Thomas Linzey spoke at three separate events, it's time to make hay! We need to plan a campaign relating to corporate power in Bellingham. To develop the plan, and to carry it out, we need an initiating group (remember the Transition Whatcom TWIG?). We'll meet next Tuesday, February 1, from 4:00 pm to 6:00 pm to work out the details. The meeting will be at A-1 Builders, 3310 Northwest Avenue, just north of Squalicum Way and Maplewood Avenue. If you can't…See More

This is a meeting brought to you by TW's Living Democracy working group and is open to those of you who have previously attended a Paul Cienfuegos' workshop on dismantling corporate power.  We will meet with Thomas Linzey (www.celdf.com) to discuss possible ordinances we might explore to empower local control, strip corporations of personhood rights, as well as give nature inherent rights.  Linzey helped Pittsburgh pass their recent ban on natural gas…See More

Rick Dubrow commented on David Waugh's group Sustainable Transportation
"Great idea but I'll be out of town. I'd love to do this. Consider convening the transportation group which is seeking a Leader (David is out of starte; his father volunteered to carry the fire but then nothing came to pass) AND a project…"

Rick Dubrow replied to Joseph Ford's discussion bike move organization in the group Sustainable Transportation
"I'd like to at least inform realtors I know about this service. They are right there when folks start thinking about moving, so green-leaning realtors may be great 'sales people' for this idea. Is it ok, Joseph, to give out your email…"

Rick Dubrow's blog post - December 2014 - "Hammering Out My Manifesto"

Posted on January 7, 2015 at 1:11pm 0 Comments

"It’s time to articulate the core assumptions and beliefs that empower THE HAMMER. Before I hammer them out, though, let’s get something straight:  thousands of words, if not books, would be necessary to describe how I’ve arrived at these conclusions. This is a blog, however, and not a book.  So brevity will prevail… for now.   Want to [...] Read More…

"Over 20 years ago I anchored a radio program on KGMI AM-790 — “On The Level” – about housing and remodeling. My weekly, one-hour show lasted for about 4-1/2 years.

"I tried, damn it! When my efforts to prevent coal trains from passing through Bellingham failed, the wind in my sails went still. My activism went… inactive. Although we secured twice the necessary signatures to get it on the ballot, our very own progressive Bellingham City Council crushed Coal Free Bellingham’s ‘Community Bill of Rights’, [...]…
