About Me

Raised by Republican grandparents Who were so disgusted with the republican party voted for Obama. Authentic love child born in the SF Bay Area in 1969. lived in a commune for the first 3 yrs of my life before my parents split and my grandparents took over legal guardianship. Howard Dean brought me back to the Democratic Party after changing to the Green party when Clinton lied about a blow job to my face on National television. I figure he deserved the blow job and should have been honest with me. I consider myself a Rachel Maddow liberal while nowhere near as smart just as pragmagtic about policy/legislative compromises to my Very Big G Green party dad disappointment. We are all one there is no THEM to fear and hate.

Global Warming: Mitigate, Adapt... or Reverse?

http://www.opednews.com/articles/Global-Warming-Mitigate--by-Dave-Ewoldt-Adaptation-To-Climate-Change_Coalitions_Community_Ecology-130922-774.html



Climate Smart Southwest: Ready or Hot

A Public Health and Climate Adaptation Conference
Sponsored by Physicians for Social Responsibility, Sept. 21, 2013
Mental and Spiritual Health and Well-being working group.
Good afternoon. Since our panelist remarks are time limited, you're not going to get any stories from me today; just the facts--along with an occasional rhetorical flourish to drive a point home. My name is Dave Ewoldt, and I'm a co-founder and Sr. Analyst for Coalitions of Mutual Endeavor, a non-profit based here in Tucson that focuses on sustainability from a natural systems perspective by building multi-issue coalitions to create the critical mass necessary for systemic change. I'm a systems scientist and researcher and practitioner in eco-psychology. What I'm "about" is connecting the dots, examining the relationships, and I'm much more interested in stopping the causes of global warming than in trying to find ways to adapt to its disastrous consequences--as if that's our only or even our best alternative.

3rd Romney bumper sticker spotted today, He decided to confront me

I just saw my 3rd romney sticker today .. the guy saw my stickers and called me a hippie(rolling eyes) I held up my copy of the Constitution and told him he was going to lose. he kept yelling hippie at me , I waved him to follow me he did , but when he saw my husband come out of the house he drove off like the punk he is . Funny to see him run away scared from "hippies" (even though I'm not a hippie , I'm an authentic love child and proud of it) Hippies don't own guns we do , hippies don't listen to Heavy metal we do. Get it straight republicans.


You confront me I get in your face right back .. they always run away scared silly republicans.

My Western Dental experience today ( A warning to all who may go there)

Dear corporate Masters ,


While I'm not a millionaire so in your eyes the treatment I and my son just received is all about the profit that your CEO's make and not about my Smile at all. My son had a first time patient appointment at 11:45 am today I just got home after 4 hrs of sitting at your concord location. I dropped a complaint in the box there at the office too. This was my first experience with FAST food Dentistry. I feel as though I have been brutalized by your overbooking system. So while I was waiting in the waiting room my son was waiting in the dentists chair for over an hr w/o being seen. It wasn't until I asked how long this was going to take for the dentist to see him and even then My son said they kept walking away to see other patients. If you guys aren't going to be ready when appointments are scheduled Why are they scheduled at that time? (oh yeah your profit motive outweighs the importance of your patients time and smile) Because of an 11:45am appointment My son and myself haven't eaten since 8:00 am this morning and it's 4pm now.


How dare you think you can treat the American working class tax payers this way. And the poor people who work there. I really feel sorry for them day in and day out listening to Irate people like myself . Your Corporate over Schelduling left me feeling Valueless and brutalized.


We will not be returning to a place where everyone who works is stressed. Perhaps your CEO should visit an office someday and listen to the people who work harder than He everyday. He won't , I'm sure he's too busy at one of his vacation homes somewhere. He probably PAYS LESS taxes than the average customer too.


I will Tell my over 700 friends on Facebook my experience, I plan on Creating a anti western Dental page too. As a paying customer I deserve to be treated as if my time matters to you. I work with disable children I know my value. Repeat Customers obviously don't know their Value.


"thank you for calling western dental how can I make you smile today?" HA!


My sincerest Regards,
XXXXXX XXXXXXXXX
