The Mules have declared a Declaration of Emergency (DOE). Why? The Natural World that resides on this earth with all its inhabitants is being destroyed by a spreading, sprawling Megatropolis (man-made world) that shows no bounds and cares not for the consequences of its behavior. The Natural World that human beings must have to be and remain human is vanishing rapidly. The Human Race is truly in a state of emergency. We must curtail and redirect the energy of this Megatropolis going wild over the face of earth into a direction of seeking balance with earth and its Natural World not its destruction.
The above being said a most first necessary step, an interstate trail system in this country going in all four directions (north, south, east and west) linking all states to all other states passed and funded by Congress with the same energy and effort that was applied to the building of the interstate freeway system.
This interstate system shall be developed for pedestrians, cyclists, and equestrians with freedom to stop and rest outdoors for the night.
The DOE will be delivered to every city hall, congressman’s office and state capitol by which we pass one step at a time, all day, every day. The Mules ask you to take a copy of the DOE to your city hall or congressman’s office. Make a personal effort, contribution of hope, faith and energy totally unique to yourself as nobody else can.
June 29, 2016 The Mules have traveled up and down the state for the past two years delivering the DOE to over 140 city halls and the state capitol speaking to the absolute necessity for a multi-use trail system in this state and country. We were given a vision and asked to give our hope, faith and energy to that vision and stuff would happen and stuff is. This bill before the legislature is that stuff and it is extremely gratifying to us. ~The Mules
For the first time in 14 years, a California Senate and Assembly Bill (SB 317/AB 2444) is moving through the California legislature. It just passed the Senate and Finance Committee. When Legislators return from their summer break in August, AB 2444 will be heard in the Senate Appropriations Committee.
