Nuclear weapons are very serious. But we need some humor too.

The U.S. government keeps promoting more nuclear weapons in order to make Americans secure.  Instead of that, I propose that we ABOLISH NUCLEAR WEAPONS and INSTEAD, SIMPLY LEAVE OUR SHOES UNTIED.

NEITHER POLICY PROTECTS OUR NATION, but my alternative policy offers two benefits:

  1. We will save many billions of dollars.
  2. And although either policy – nuclear weapons or untied shoelaces – could cause an accident,  if an accident occurs, tripping on shoelaces will cause much less damage than a nuclear war.

PLEASE SHARE THIS MESSAGE – and share my reasoning – with other people.

Also invite people to join the movement to abolish nuclear weapons.  Contact me for information about the Olympia Coalition to Abolish Nuclear Weapons and our statewide Coalition, Washington Against Nuclear Weapons (
