Stop the Basing of the F-35 at Vermont Air Guard Station

Senator Patrick Leahy and Senator Bernie Sanders,

Stop the Basing of the F-35 at the Vermont Air Guard Station

The F-35 fighter jet, still years from any utility, stands as the most costly weapon system to U.S. taxpayers and potentially, the most catastrophic failure. With $400 billion dollars already spent and more than $1 trillion to go over the next 30 years, the proposed fleet of F-35 jets robs our tax dollars from life-affirming investments in the underfunded areas of education and health care.

Beyond the siphoning of resources, the F-35 is an immediate threat to people in Vermont. People who live close to the Vermont Air Guard Station, especially children, would suffer health impacts from the extreme noise pollution created by basing this weapon of war in close proximity to a residential neighborhood. 

In solidarity with Vermonters and the Stop the F-35 Coalition, we implore you to take immediate action to stop the basing of the F-35 at the Vermont Air Guard Station.

    How can America protect a country it can’t afford to educate? Sadness.

    An injustice to any is an injustice to all, and if it isn’t addressed individually, it becomes a global injustice as well.  “You can’t struggle with the man’s house (mansion) using the man’s tools”, Audrey Lourdes, “be the change you wish to see in the world”, “the root of all oppression lies in (supposed) science”, Gandhi.  Remember, if responsibility isn’t exercised, its Siamese twin sister, freedom, will wither, like an unused muscle as well; now, sadly, because of self-possession, it needs to be exorcised before it’s exercised.  No one must be conned by the corporate structure’s convolution, divide and conquer only works on the divided, life is indivisible, as your potential is illimitable.   reality   If you will, please copy, share. reality

    Agree. One thing that might be useful is to enter into a dialog with the people who are at that Air Guard Station. Maybe we can help them find work elsewhere. Especially when they hear about how costly it is to keep them at their present job and how hopeless it is to continue to keep spending so much on a killing machine when so much is needed on health care. They could be proud of their new position and we may forgive them for unknowingly continuing in this line of work since they obviously do not mean to create a war. Maybe we could give them an assignment to find out how much war costs and how much they are contributing. Especially important to find them a new job – something they are passionate about!
