Our money is no longer any of our business..

Has anyone here noticed that the Fed is no longer going to publish M3
data??  What this means is that fed watchers and market analysts will
no longer be able to track just how much money is being created
electronically by the fed to manipulate the equity markets via
the "plunge protection team."

This is ominous as heck to put it lightly.  Now the money supply is
to be secret and its now none of our business how much and how fast
the fed inflates our money and its also going to be impossible to
track where and how much the market is being manipulated.  Its all
secret now...

This just underscores how vital it is that we immediately remonetize
on a local level.  The fed is preparing for something drastic; wether
it be war, pandemic, market collapse or something as mundane as
Greenspan going out on a stock market record high or the faithful
Bushite contributors stocks getting pumped we are left to speculate,
and in the absense of real data, now we the people are going to be
left completely in the dark; and ITS OUR MONEY!!

Revolt in Congress Against PATRIOT "Compromise"

Late Friday, there was word that Senators and Representatives 
began heading home for the two-week holiday recess without 
voting on the PATRIOT renewal.  The Washington Post reports 
that some lawmakers believe a bill will be passed before the 
end of the year, but others were not so sure.  The PATRIOT 
Act expires on December 31.

Earlier this week, when the legislative conference tasked 
with reconciling the House and Senate versions of the PATRIOT 
renewal bill started circulating drafts of its so-called 
"compromise," a vote seemed certain by the end of the week. 
But the civil liberties community recognized the conference 
report for what it was: the same old PATRIOT with illusory 

Luckily, several dedicated and patriotic Senators and 
Representatives--yes, Virginia, they do exist!--recognized it 
too.  Now, it seems the stage is set for a public debate on 
PATRIOT and civil liberties.  Stay tuned.

Check EFF's DeepLinks for updates:

Full conference report (three parts):

British Thought Police
It is well noted that many are wrongly imprisoned for daring to question the validity of the Hollocast. Just as with many other truths we later discover, the truth behind the holocaust may very well be the ultimate Pandora's Box. Not that one death was not too many, nor that any amount of torture is acceptable. But to continue to use those deaths, and repeatedly lie on the true figures of those deaths for a profit, or lie about how they really occurred, does matter.
When Israel continues to reap billions each year on the coattails of the deaths of the holocaust, it would appear appropriate to investigate and validate the claims.
Repeatedly we see the opposite is true when we research historical events. Those who have done serious research on the halocaust are often imprisoned and held without rights for years if they dared to go public with their findings.
Ernst Zundel Prisoner of Conscience Victim of Thought Crime
We need to think about this...."If the stories are true and can be validated, then no other research could threaten it." But if they are not true and there is a huge threat to the billions collected on the lies then the only way to attack that threat is to prevent the freedom of speech we need for such research to reach the public and make it a crime to investigate historical events. That is what we continue to see. It only gives validation to the revelations of those who are imprisoned and none to those who are trying to oppress the information.
In comes the thought police.... Few are stopping to think that what we say is acceptable for the treatment of one man because we do not agree with him, does not mean we are exempt from those same rights infringing actions when the cause and the "truth" is "ours."  Will we face prison years from now if we dare to tell our grandchildren the truth of the OK bombing, 9/11, Iraq, Katrina, GMO foods, vaccines, etc? The thought police are working on that.
The brainwashing continues each day that Bush redefines who the "terrorists" are. The anti-semantic bills have not passed here....yet. But they have extended a LOT of effort to implement them here in the US with repeated bills introduced. Like Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum- Bush and Blair work in sync with their respective countries to implement what they plan to go global with.
To believe or not believe in the accounts of the holocaust should not been seen as an imprisonable offence. They should be deemed as nessasary for historical validation. Because the false history of vaccines alone has already shown us that the lies will be repeated for centuries when they refuse to show the true history and many more will suffer if they do not know the truth. It is when we stop asking for proof and verification that we will fall for anything.
Below is yet another who face imprisonment for daring to oppose the official version of the hollocaust.

#  Roxanne Dunbar-Ortiz Blood On the Border: A Memoir of the Contra War 
tue Nov 22 7:30 pm  Modern Times Bookstore   888 Valencia St (b/t 20th and 21st)
 With Blood on the Border, Roxanne Dunbar-Ortiz presents the third volume in her critically-acclaimed memoir. She vividly recounts memories of the contra war in Nicaragua, chronicling the US-sponsored terror inflicted on the people of Nicaragua following the election of the Sandinistas that ousted the Reagan darling and vicious dictator Somoza. Her rich political analysis of this history bears the mark of a trained historian, but she also writes from her perspective as an intrepid activist who spent time throughout the 1980s in the war-torn country. She makes painfully clear the connections between what many US Americans only remember vaguely as the Iran-Contra "affair" and current US aggression in the Americas, the Middle East, and around the world.
 Roxanne will read from her new book and answer questions following a discussion afterward.

# Buy Nothing Day -- help with sheep herding Hey all, 

 I'm trying to put together the sheep herd to flock through Union Square on Buy Nothing Day (the day after Thanksgiving -- see for more info).

 I'll need someone to split the labor and cost of a bunch of sheep masks, mainstream retailer shopping bags, fake money, etc., to make the sheep a reality this year. 

 Someone out there wanna help make this happen? Folks out there NEED to experience the SHEEP this year!!! 
 Baaaaa,   - Sheep FX   415-614-9300

# how much is that nothing in the window?
  The latest from the front: 
It's that time of the year again: BUY NOTHING DAY 

In less than a month, millions of people around the world will ask for 
the ultimate refund -- by opting out of consumer culture. For 24 hours on 
Buy Nothing Day, November 25, we remember that no one was born to shop, 
we pause, make a small choice to participate by not participating, and 
we regain some calm. What will you do to tell Nike, McDonald's, Walmart 
and the rest that enough is enough? Why not run with some ideas dreamt 
up by the more than 3,500 jammers who took part in last year's biggest 
ever Buy Nothing Day? Set up credit card cut ups, don white coats and 
vaccinate against affluenza, give out free samples of nothing - anything 
to show that the best things in life are free. You can find more ideas 
and tools in the Action Pyramid at:

The catalyst for change: TRUE COST ECONOMICS 

Before economics can progress it must abandon its suicidal formalism. 
- Robert Heilbroner 
The neoclassical economics paradigm is ripe for the picking and we're 
due for an entirely new way of measuring progress. This mindshift could 
be pulled off by a small number of economics students in a few prominent 
universities around the world triggering visceral debates within their 
departments. And to help catalyze this process, we've come up with an 
exciting experiment -- campus jammergroups -- that allows students to come 
together and harmonize their efforts. Discussions have already begun at 
hundreds of campuses. Now we just need to energize them. So encourage 
any economics students you know to check out , 
find their local campus jammergroup and start organizing. Before you 
know it, economics students everywhere will move from arguing with their 
professors in class, to nailing manifestoes on their doors, to shaming 
them at teach ins, and eventually grabbing them by the scruffs of their 
necks and tossing them out of power. 
Adbusters vs. Big Broadcasters: MEDIA CARTA 

Here's the latest in our legal action to blast open the doors that 
prevent grassroots access to the airwaves. We've taken the government 
and Canada's biggest television broadcasters -- CTV, CanWest Global, CBC 
and CHUM -- to court because they've denied us the right to buy airtime 
for our advocacy TV messages. The defendants are ganging up to have the 
case dismissed -- what are they afraid of? -- but we're not going away. 
The airwaves belong to the public, and we want them back. By January, 
their stall tactics should be exhausted and the broadcasting fraternity 
will be back on the defensive. Look for updates and background and sign 
up for the Media Carta at:

# Buy Nothing Day Friday, November 25, 2005  - Saturday, November 26, 2005 
10:00 AM Location:  your conscience  SF Bay Area
 The Friday after Thanksgiving (Nov 25) is touted as Black Friday because its the official start of the Christmas shopping season. 

FCUK THAT - instead, try International Buy Nothing Day as a protest against consumerism, waste, obligation, and the disgusting spectacle that is American Christmas & materialism. 

Its simple — just don't buy anything. And think about how you personally might save more, spend less, and consider the bigger picture a bit more frequently. Every bit helps. Thanks.

# Join East Bay Animal Advocates for a Day of Advocacy on November 25!
On Friday, November 25, East Bay Animal Advocates will be leafleting outside of six Safeway (one of Foster Farms' major retailers) stores. Many shoppers will be heading to Safeway to make their holiday purchases. This is an excellent opportunity for advocacy. 

The 4-1-1 on Foster Farms
As the largest poultry producer in the Western United States, Foster Farms emphasizes a commitment to advancing animal welfare and product quality. Despite its exceptional economic growth, Foster Farms fails to provide adequate care for its animals. Each week Foster Farms slaughters over five million chickens and turkeys for food. Documentation (available at ) shows Foster Farms animals repeatedly denied proper care. Foster Farms needs to improve conditions for chickens & turkeys by establishing an animal welfare audit program.

# The Veil of Berta Wed Nov 30 7:00 pm
 The film is FREE but $5 donations are accepted
 THE VEIL OF BERTA   Presented by Yael Martinez

This film delicately narrates the story of Berta Quintreman, an  
elderly indigenous woman who, at the age of 88, led the last group  
opposing the construction of the Ralco Project, a gigantic dam that  
will stop the flow of the Bio Bio River and flood the land where her  
native Mapuche Pewenche community has lived for centuries. A woman  
with a strong personality and a unique blend of humor and energy,  
Berta lives alone on her small pieces of land and observes all the  
traditions of her people. On a daily basis she greets the trees and  
the sun, drinks mate (a traditional herbal tea) with her dead, and  
says her prayers. But at the same time we will see that she confronts  
the authorities of Endesa (a Spanish transnational company) and the  
Chilean government. She manages to halt the machinery and works  
together with other families to prevent the flooding of their land.  
The Mapuche people are the largest indigenous tribe of southern  
Chile. After the ending of Pinochet's military dictatorship and under  
increasing pressure from forestry companies, the Mapuche took up the  
struggle in the 1990's to recover their territory. This film is  
directed by Jeanette Paillán. Jeannette herself will attend the  
showing to comment on her work and the situation of the Mapuche  
people today. Jeannette's works have been screened internationally  
since 1994. Her first documentary, Wallmapu, was awarded at the 2003  
Human Rights Film Festival in Buenos Aires, Argentina. Jeannette was  
also festival coordinator of the 2004 CLACPI Festival of Indigenous  
Film and Video in Santiago, Chile.

Before and after the film, everyone's invited to indulge in our  
Humanist Coffee House.

# "Stop Global Warming" Actions on December 3
 Saturday, December 3, 2005  more on this date 
 Climate Crisis Coalition Organizing Nationwide 

"Stop Global Warming" Actions on December 3 

Climate Crisis, USA Join the World!   today announced that it is 
organizing actions across the United States on and 
around December 3 to demand that the U.S. government 
support action that is commensurate with the urgency of 
the deepening climate crisis. 

"Scores of Stop Global Warming local actions will be 
happening during the Nov. 28-Dec. 9 time period when 
the huge, United Nations Climate Conference in Montreal 
takes place," said Ted Glick, spokesperson for the 
group. "We will be acting in concert with hundreds of 
thousands of people in at least 28 countries around 
the world who are making December 3rd an 
International Day of Action to Stop Global Warming." 

The Climate Crisis group is demanding that the U.S. 
government join the world by ratifying the Kyoto 

Climate Crisis also demands that the federal government 
withdraw its annual $25 billion in subsidies for coal 
and oil and create equivalent subsidies for clean, 
safe, non-nuclear energy alternatives; that it 
dramatically strengthen energy conservation and fuel 
efficiency standards; that it plan for a just 
transition for workers, Indigenous communities and 
others affected by a change to clean energy; and that 
it actively defend the world's forests and support 
community-run tree planting campaigns. 

States where local actions will be taking place 
include: Alaska, Arizona, California, Colorado, 
Delaware, District of Columbia, Florida, Illinois, 
Louisiana, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, 
Minnesota, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, 
Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Texas, Utah and 

In D.C. on December 3, scores of hybrid vehicles 
organized by the Chesapeake Climate Action Network will 
circle the White House. In New Orleans the Alliance for 
Affordable Energy will be holding a Stop Global Warming 
event in the French Quarter. In Los Angeles on December 
2, the Labor/Community Strategy Center will be doing an 
action calling for an expansion of the city's bus fleet 
to provide badly-needed public transportation which 
will also cut down on car-producing greenhouse gases. 
And in New York, also on December 2, a coalition of 
groups will rally in Foley Square across from the 
Federal Building calling for the federal government to 
stop its obstructionist efforts and instead act to 
address this urgent crisis. 

In many localities, following the lead of organizers of 
a massive march on December 3 in Montreal, participants 
in the actions will try to hold their breath for 60 
seconds. USA Join the World! coordinator Glick 
explained that, 'Doing so reminds us all how important 
clean air is to all living things. It reminds us of the 
urgency of our work. It is a metaphor for what people 
on some Pacific islands may soon have to do as the 
oceans rise and their islands disappear and breathing 
becomes impossible.'

# The Heydey of Natural History Thu Dec 8 7:30-9 pm Free.
Never has the status of science been held in higher esteem and the  
public taken a bigger interest in natural history than during the  
mid-19th century in America and Britain. This was a time of great  
voyages of discovery, when fabulous fossil beasts were first  
unearthed and put on public display. Most of today's renowned science  
museums, including the California Academy of Sciences, were  
established amid this enchantment with natural history. No middle- 
class home was thought complete without a display of butterfly  
collections or stuffed birds. John Dillon, Science Director at the  
Randall Museum and President of the San Francisco Amateur  
Astronomers, will explore the nature and extent of this fervor and  
how Charles Darwin's Origin of Species influenced it. San Francisco  
Naturalist Society general meeting. For more information, contact

# Panel Discussion:  Int'l Day to End Violence Against Sex Workers
 Dec 17 10AM-2PM $5 donation
Dec 17th, Third Annual International Day to End Violence Against Sex  

International Day to End Violence Against Sex Workers is meant to  
call attention to hate crimes and violence against sex workers all  
over the globe. Originally thought of by Dr. Annie Sprinkle and  
started by the Sex Workers Outreach Project USA as a memorial and  
vigil for the victims of the Green River Killer in Seattle  
Washington, it has grown to be a day for strategizing to end these  
acts as well as remember the victims. Over thirty cities around the  
world have participated in this event.

This year Sex Workers Outreach Project is expanding events to cover  
the entire week of December 17th so that we may diversify the forums  
for discussion around violence against sex workers.

The Panel Discussion portion of these events on Dec. 17th from  
10AM-2PM will focus on both identifying forms of violence against sex  
workers, including structural violence and stigmatization, as well as  
thinking of solutions.  Panelists will include sex workers' rights  
activists, sex workers, prison abolitionists, law enforcement, and more!

Our tentative schedule for this entire week is as follows:
Thursday, December 15th: 6:30 PM-8:30 PM
Memorial and Community Discussion
Berkeley Fellowship of Unitarian Universalists
1924 Cedar x Bonita

Saturday, December 17th: 10 AM-2 PM
Ending Violence, Discrimination and Stigma Around Sex Work
1515 Webster St.
Panel discussion in the morning followed by lunch and afternoon  
strategizing. $5 donation requested.

artwork and or written word to be displayed at the candle light vigil  
in Civic Center at dusk on December 17th. Make yourself heard in the

# Unsilent Night Wed Dec 21 6:45 PM Free

----/ Event Description /-----------------------------------------------

"Unsilent Night," composer Phil Kline's free, all-volunteer outdoor  
boombox holiday concert, returns to San Francisco for its third  
annual performance on Wednesday, December 21, 2005, at 6:45 PM.

A moving piece of ambient public art, Unsilent Night can be compared  
to a holiday caroling party, except that participants don't sing.  
Instead, each carries a boombox playing a separate cassette, CD, or  
MP3 that becomes part of the piece. In effect, Kline and his co- 
performers become single elements in a huge, mobile sound system.

Performed within the confines of the city streets, Unsilent Night  
reverberates off the cars and buildings, resulting in a magnificent,  
drifting cloud of shimmering, echoing sound. The 43-minute piece  
includes chiming bells, choral voices, and various electronic  
effects. (Kline cites Brian Eno and Charles Ives among his influences.)

Kline has performed Unsilent Night in Manhattan every year city since  
1992. In San Francisco last year, some 500 people took part. This  
year marks the first chance for iPod users to participate, as Kline  
will make MP3 files of the piece available on his website.

Participants are invited to bring a boombox to Mission Dolores Park  
at 18th and Dolores Streets, gathering at 6:45 PM. After Kline  
distributes tapes and CDs among the players, the group will begin the  
piece, strolling a mile-long, predetermined route though the Mission,  
Noe, and Castro districts. The event will be held rain or shine.

Neither will we ever be certain whether those plans for the National Mall surrounding the White House, the Washington Monument and the U.S. Capital proposed by the McMillan Commission in the same year that the Bohemian Owl worshipers legally acquired their grove in California, had anything to do with why there appears to be a Giant Owl surrounding the Capitol Building.
