peak oil 2000?       We will feel it in 2012     (we're feeling it now)
 
Kuwait oil reserves only half official estimate
http://tinyurl.com/cdxhy


What they don't want you to know about the coming oil crisis
http://news.independent.co.uk/environment/article339928.ece
When we reach the topping point of peak oil
depends on whether we have 1 or 2 trillion barrels of oil left.
the difference between 1 and 2 trillion barrels is seismic. It is roughly the difference between a full Lake Geneva and a half-full one, were that lake full of oil and not water. If 2 trillion barrels of oil or more indeed remain, the topping point lies far away in the 2030s. The "growing" and "cheap" parts of the oil-supply equation are feasible until then, at least in principle, and we have enough time to bring in the alternatives to oil. If only 1 trillion barrels remain, however, the topping point will arrive some time soon, and certainly before this decade is out. The "growing" and "cheap" parts of the oil-supply equation become impossible, and there probably isn't even enough time to make a sustainable transition to alternatives.
...agrees there is a 300-billion-barrel exaggeration in Opec's reserves. 
This happened between 1985 and 1990 when OPEC nations "massaged" their data so they sell more oil under OPEC quotas.
Oh look, we found more oil...
In fact, given the time frames with which offshore oilfields are developed and depleted, it seems certain that there will be nowhere near enough oil to meet the combined forces of depletion and demand between 2008 and 2012.
In 1956, a Shell geologist called M King Hubbert famously calculated that oil production in the "lower 48" states of America would peak in 1971.  HE WAS WRONG. Oil production in the "lower 48" states of America peaked in 1970.
The US is just short of halfway down the second half of the curve now.
In other words, it has used up some three-quarters of its original endowment of recoverable oil.
Given its almost total lack of attention to the efficiency with which oil is burned, the US becomes more dependent on foreign oil imports by the day.
The American pattern of historical oil discovery and production is only a loose guide to what is going on in the rest of the world. In the US, oil, once found, was pumped without much substantive effort at constraint. The curves for discovery and production are going to look different where conservative nationalised companies are doing the looking,...
Today, more than 60 out of the 65 countries possessing oil have passed their discovery topping points and 49 of them have passed their production topping points. The US has a particularly long gap between the two: 40 years (1930 to 1970). The UK has one of the shortest: 25 years (1974 to 1999).
This is because the first discoveries were made much later in the UK, when technology for both exploration and production were more advanced.
Growing supplies of British oil didn't last long, though. Britain is now a net oil importer just like the US.

Peak gas 2015 to 2040 (natural gas) , with production falling over a cliff beyond that.
Nor is there any comfort to be derived from gas. Gasfields deplete very differently from oilfields, gas being much more mobile than oil. It is normal for a gasfield to yield 70-80 per cent of its gas over its production lifetime, whereas an oilfield will typically yield only 35-40 per cent of its oil. Drillers normally set gas production far below the natural production capacity so as to give a long production plateau. But the danger in this is that the end of the production plateau comes abruptly, and without market signals.

Colin Campbell, a prominent early topper, estimates that the original global endowment of conventional gas was around 10,000 trillion cubic feet (equivalent to 1.8 trillion barrels of oil), of which about a quarter has been produced to date. He expects a global plateau in production of around 130 trillion cubic feet per year during the period 2015 to 2040, with production falling over a cliff beyond that.

back to oil: 
are we simply failing to pay sufficient attention to alarm signals such as last month's little-noticed announcement by the US government's Energy Information Administration, in which forecasts of Opec production between now and 2025 were slashed by 11 million barrels a day?

Treasury Secretary, John Snow-"U.S. Government is on the verge of collapse."
Date: Sun, 22 Jan 2006 14:38:35 -0500

http://lonepatriot.com/archives/daily_post/index.html#000146
    Predicting the coming financial crisis really involves no
    brains at all, it is imminent and unavoidable.  The only
    question to ask, is when will the puppet masters pull the
    strings.  If U.S. Treasury Secretary, John Snow's  recent
    statement indicating that "the U.S. Government is on the verge
    of collapse" isn't a wake-up call, I'm not sure what is.

"Excuse me sir, would you step this way?"
http://www.marketwire.com/mw/release_html_b1?release_id=105967&tsource=6


Here is a suggested possibility of a proper response to retain your 
rights to not be searched and seized by the USA corporation or local 
agent offering to "protect" you.

Option of a possible response based upon my and others' understanding 
and reading of court findings revolving around exactly at what point 
you give up your Constitutional non-search & seizure rights:

In the real world, asserting your rights politely usually only works if 
your rights are respected by a higher-up who knows the legal score, and 
you  answer no question ever.  Not in detention, not in jail, ever. At 
some point someone somewhere in the chain knows this truthful 
information - while the practical full loss of all rights in an 
executive  dictatorship for our own good is not in effect.

"How are you today, sir?" This is a trained ploy to elicit 'proper' 
response without the officer even knowing why. He is not told the whole 
truth and is simply told to start the investigation by asking...so as 
to "be friendly."

Any answer or giving up of documents at any point makes you 
"participating in an investigation" - unless you answer ONLY in the 
form of a QUESTION.

Example: smile, and politely ask "Who is asking and why?" 
This immediately determines the encounter status and 
whether the person is acting in their private or public capacity.

If you ANSWER, you have automatically given up all rights. Once given 
up, they cannot be restored. Because "Once you testify in part you must 
testify in whole."

If taken against your will, you can come back later and win.

Be friendly, be polite.

"I respectfully do not consent to this encounter. If I had and gave you 
such documents can they be used against me in a court of law? 
Would you please inform your supervisor what I just said? Am I free to go?" 
(Immediately determines your status.)

Theoretically, this applies not just to airports, but roadblocks, 
traffic stops, street encounters = they are all the same.
Here are the most current pictures on American prison  camps I've
seen yet, with what will seem like a valid reason for filling them up.

I get jobs repairing computers for DHS here locally so get to see firsthand what they are all about when I go over the crap on their hard drives.  Their primary goal is to spend ungodly amounts of federal money on seminars designed to scare the living shit out as many govt employees as they can cajole into attending them and on stockpiling totally inappropriate emergency hardware and equipment for imagined terrorist threats which are Looney Tunes from the standpoint of any likelihood they will ever occur. I'm convinced the sole purpose and design of the program is to turn the masses of sheeple into ever fearful and compliant proles willing to accept any amount of authoritarian abuse in exchange for `security'.

Bush could seize absolute control of U.S. government 

President George W. Bush has signed executive orders giving him sole
authority to impose martial law, suspend habeas corpus and ignore the
Posse Comitatus Act that prohibits deployment of U.S. troops on
American streets. This would give him absolute dictatorial power over
the government with no checks and balances.

  you know why this REALLY pisses me off? 
I had a bug on my pc a few weeks ago, which would pop-up with a google page, with the search criteria already entered and searched-for, with the search resulsts displayed. Topics ranged from hair-loss treatments to bizarre sex acts, and everything in between 
those records would make it seem that "I" was searching for all that shit, rather than a bug making those searches automatically. And yes, kiddie porn was one of the search items... 
the bastards 
makes one wonder whether it's the NSA itself who is sending out those viruses and bugs 
in response to: Amerikan fascists and games with google 


NOTE: AOL pulled a similar move in the 90s.
there was a govt sting to catch kiddie porn types.

The Bush Regime is conducting another "drill" soon, this one to simulate a nuclear bomb.  Given the NORAD drills that "went live" during 911, and the London security drills that "went live" in London's 7/7, we must assume the worst from the pending nuclear exercise described in the article:  
http://www.wnd.com/news/article.asp?ARTICLE_ID=48454
 
Houston-area patriots and police broke up a Bush attempt to use a similar exercise as a cover for an operation to sabotage the British Petroleum, Texas City, Texas Refinery on 7/28/2005.  Examine the bibliography my unit and I have prepared to examine this all-important interdiction more closely:  
http://www.spiritone.com/~pazuu/pow-mia/GhostTroopCaptMayBibliography.htm
 
At that bibliography you'll find both articles from the period and historic international interviews describing heroic actions by Houston-area and national infowarriors to break up another 911.  The Bush tyranny still needs that next 911, and therefore we must all be vigilant.  Check out the links and pass the word:  Only public awareness can protect the public!

# SUPPORT LOCAL ACTIVISTS' RESISTANCE TO THE OPPRESSIVE GRAND JURY SYSTEM:

When: Wednesday January 25, 9 A.M.
Where: In front of the San Francisco Federal Building
450 Golden Gate (between Polk and Larkin)

After a bit of a break, a federal grand jury in San Francisco is again 
demanding the appearance of several animal rights activists on Wednesday, 
January 25th.

These local activists face jail time simply for exercising their 
Constitutional right to remain silent before this secret government 
inquisition.

Please spread the word and attend a demonstration in protest of government
oppression and in support for these activists' resistance to government 
harassment. A strong showing of our opposition to FBI witch hunts is 
crucial to the survival of the activist community.

# IMPORTANT HEARING on Public Financing legislation -- Wed, Jan. 25, San Francisco
From: Steven Hill    Dear Friends, 

Voter Owned Elections/public financing of the mayor’s race in San Francisco
is rounding third base and heading for home. After receiving a unanimous 5-0
vote at the San Francisco Ethics Commission, THIS Wednesday we have our
first hearing at the Board of Supervisors. Now is the time to pour on the
support!

Our legislation has been endorsed by nearly 60 organizations plus numerous
elected officials. You can help San Francisco join the national movement to
breath new life into our democracy.  Please attend this important hearing,
here are the details:
 
When: Wednesday, January 25th @ 1:30 PM
Where: Room 263 of City Hall (McAllister & Polk), San Francisco 

On December 19th, over 100 people filled the chambers of the Ethics
Commission, it was standing room only. Grassroots power helped make this
critical reform one-step closer to reality. In order to ensure that this
legislation for public financing of the mayor's race is passed into law, we
need to come together once again. Let's fill the hearing room of the Budget
and Finance Committee!
 
If you can't make the hearing, please take the time to contact the Board of
Supervisors to let them know this reform is important to you. If you go to
the website below, you will find sample letters and a link that will allow
you to send personalized letters to whichever members of the Board of
Supervisors you want:

on Wednesday! Yours, Steven Hill

#  Weds. January 25, 6 - 8pm COMCAST - MARIN Cable Franchise
 CONTRACT HEARING  (Location pending)
 NEXT MTA MEETING: After six years of negotiations, the MTA will discuss the proposed ten-year cable franchise agreement with Comcast at their next meeting. The MTA must insist on some key provisions in this agreement, before allowing Comcast to continue using our streets for its cables. 
Please Come and Support Community Media Tell the MTA that you support the creation of a non-profit, independent community media center, and that any new franchise agreement must include the following:
• Designated Access Provider (DAP): This lets the people of Marin run their own Community Media Center and their Public, Education And Government (PEG) channels. 
• Capital Expense: The new community media center must be adequately funded for new and upgraded equipment and facilities over the life of the agreement. 
 • Operational Expense: A media center must have enough income to keep running. This can be provided by a viewer choice fee (less than $1 a month) on cable bills.
• FM Service on the cable must be guaranteed. In many parts of Marin cable is the only way people can hear FM.

Meeting, Oakland <> (Harmony Community Center , 7-10pm)

      7:00 p.m. to 10:00p.m.

       Directions-
       From Hwy. 580 East (coming from the Bay Bridge or
Berkeley), take the Grand Ave./Lakeshore exit (the exit ramp merges
into MacArthur which intersects with Grand at the light), make a left
at the light onto Grand, make a right onto Lake Park Ave. (the Grand
Lake Theater will be on the corner on your far right). Go about a
block, past the BofA, which will be on your left, and the GLNC will
also be on your left. Park on the street or turn right into free public
parking under the freeway.

        Lake Merrit is the closest BART station, with a 15 minute walk
around
the lake towards the Grand Lake Theater.

            From Hwy. 580 West (coming from Hayward), take the

crossing Lakeshore Ave. The GLNC will be a few storefronts down on your
right. Park on the street or turn left into free public parking under
the freeway across from GLNC. If you cross Grand Ave. (and the theater)
you've gone too far.


#2 - January 25th : Truth, Stolen Elections, & Beyond - Part I
Meeting, Oakland <> (Grand Lake Neighborhood Center, 7-10pm)

9/11- TRUTH. STOLEN ELECTIONS & BEYOND
What's going on in our country
and what can we do about it?
A three part multimedia series presented by Ken Jenkins

Three Wednesday: January 25, February 1, February 8th

Harmony Community Room
400G Morris St.
Sebastopol
(across from Coaches Corner Health Club)

Part One - January 25th, 7 - 10 pm.
9/11 101 - Using the newly developed "11 REMARKABLE FACTS ABOUT 9/11"
card as a starting point, this PowerPoint and video presentation will
cover the most solid evidence disproving the official story of 9/11.
Video will include the latest from author David Ray Griffin (The New
Pearl Harbor). The talk will conclude with suggestions of empowering
actions to take. There will be time for questions and discussion.  SEE
11 REMARKABLE FACTS BELOW!

Part Two - February 1st, 7 - 10 pm
Overcoming Barriers to 9/11 Truth - Those familiar with the information
presented in part one know that a lack of evidence is not the limiting
factor in spreading 9/11 truth. Many people don't want to believe scary
stuff like that revealed by the reality of such things as stolen
elections and the truth of 9/11. This talk will look at the
psychological resistances to such truths, so we can better overcome
them. This talk will be shorter to allow more discussion time about
examples each of us have of the types of resistance we have encountered
in ourselves and others.

Part Three - February 8th, 7 - 10 pm
9/11 in Context: The Big Picture.  Using the 9/11 truth issue as a
touchstone, this discussion will look at the nature of the overall
changes we are going through that include other such unsettling
realities as the stolen elections, lies leading to war in Iraq, and the
response by our government to Katrina. By seeing these in the context
of a global awakening that we are all a part of, we can be more
effective working on the specific issues that have the most leverage to
facilitate this evolutionary process and thus create a better world.

Ken Jenkins has been a 9/11 truth activist for over four years. He was
a speaker at both the San Francisco and Toronto 9/11 Inquiries and has
produced numerous 9/11 DVD's. He is an award winning video and media
producer with an education in engineering, psychology and metaphysics.
He brings a multifaceted and balanced approach to the 9/11
investigation.
Ken is currently producing a series of DVD's of illustrated lectures by
David Ray Griffin, noted author of the books The New Pearl Harbor and
Omission and Distortions in the 9/11 Commission Report.

 CALIFORNIA EGG INDUSTRY DOCUMENTARY 
 and 
 WEGMANS CRUELTY 

 Presented by Christine Morrissey 
 Animal Rights Advocates: 925-487-4419 
 http://www.eastbayanimaladvocates.org 

 Tonight's film, "California Egg Industry Documentary," is the world premier of East Bay Animal Advocates' new documentary, an expose of California's inhumane egg industry. Each year over 19 million egg-laying hens are raised in concentrated confinement to produce table eggs for California consumers. According to the California Poultry Workgroup, close to 100 percent of egg-layers are confined to battery cages. For more information, visit www.cal-eggs.com. 

 and 

 “Wegman's Cruelty” is a half hour documentary produced by a small investigative team from the organization Compassionate Consumers. Organization members contacted Wegmans Food Markets to try to hold some meaningful dialogue about the conditions at Wegmans Egg Farm, and were then misled and dismissed by Wegmans' representatives. The team set out to capture actual footage inside the farm and create a film based on their experience. For more information, visit http://www.wegmanscruelty.com

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

 The films are FREE but $5 donations are accepted.

# John Perkins Discusses “Confessions of an Economic Hit Man” With Kevin Danaher & Anuradha Mittal
Wed, Jan 25, 2006   7:30 pm
 
M. L. King Jr. Middle School Auditorium 1781 Rose St Berkeley

 John Perkins Discusses “Confessions of an Economic Hit Man” With Kevin Danaher & Anuradha Mittal 

 JOHN PERKINS, a current New York Times and San Francisco Chronicle bestselling author who was covertly recruited by the U.S. National Security Agency to be an economic hit man, writes that they are “highly paid professionals who cheat countries around the globe out of trillions of dollars. Their tools include fraudulent financial reports, rigged elections, payoffs, extortion, sex, and murder.” Perkins did this work for a decade, until 9/11/2001 convinced him to fully expose the corporate and government activities often thought of as “globalization.” 

 ANURADHA MITTAL, formerly co-director of Food First, is the founder & director of The Oakland Institute as well as the author of: “America Needs Human Rights: Fighting Hunger and Poverty in the Richest Nation on Earth” and, with Kevin Danaher, “10 Reasons to Abolish the World Bank and the IMF.” 

 KEVIN DANAHER, co-founder of Global Exchange and their Director of Public Education, has produced as author or editor eleven books, including “Democratizing the Global Economy: The Battle Against the World Bank and the IMF” and “Insurrection: Citizen Challenges to Corporate Power (with Jason Mark).

The mission of Hamilton Family Center is to end homelessness for families that we serve by providing a safe, stable, temporary home environment that promotes the dignity of each family. We offer a comprehensive array of support services, including case management, child care, counseling, housing referral, advocacy and financial assistance. 
http://www.hamiltonfamilycenter.org 
 
Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that
we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness, that
most frightens us.  We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous,
talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be?  You are a child of
God. Your playing small doesn't serve the world. There's nothing
enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure
around you. You were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within
you. It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone. And as we let our own
light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same.
As we're liberated from our  own fear, our presence automatically
liberates others. ---marianne williamson

# EVENT 1/27: Rain Dance Chinese New Year Celebration!!!!
Hello lovely family!
 Don't miss this fabulous once-a-year party now happening at 1015
Folsom. It used to be at Cell Space, but because of the popularity it
got moved to the biggest, badddest nightclub in the city.
 And don't forget to be there on time for the midnight parade and
ritual. I'll be parading with my Samba drum troup from Santa Cruz to
rev up the doggy-style festivities (oops, no pun intended:)  Come check
it out! Woof! Woof!

GUNG HAY FAT CHOY!!! 

YEAR OF THE DOG 

Rain Dance invites you to join us for a very special evening of music,
performance art, ritual dance, lion dancers, dragons, mask making,
unstoppable festive fun overload. 

We will be fully recreating the entire space and building it into a
lush bass temple that can hold the special vibe that this party is
known and loved for. Only 2 to 3 rooms throughout the night will be
used to keep the vibe more together. A full lounge area with organic
food, coconuts, and massage will help create that container. There is
so much creative juice and love going in to this party, I can already
taste the sweet nectar of the vibe.  

1015 Folsom has recently made large upgrades to all of their sound
systems. And it has been assured to me that the security will be on the
mellow tip for the evening. Just do not forget your ID, as there will
be nothing we can do about that

The Procession is @ 12 Midnight Sharp so please do not be late or we
will have to tie your feet together and flog you with bass and you will
want to dance so bad, but you can’t because your feet are tied
together. So get there early ;)

# At the Center for Sex & Culture, 398 11th St. at Harrison.
Saturday afternoon, 1/28, Tracy Bartlett does her workshop The Menopause Transformation: An Internal Earthquake [1 cracker]
at the Center for Sex & Culture, 398 11th St. at Harrison. 1--5 pm, $30 per person. Pre-register at (415) 255-1155 or mail@sexandculture.org. 
Menopause is one of the most life-altering transitions we go through in the course of a human lifetime. This culture's tendency to focus 
solely on the physical aspects of menopause misses the stunningly powerful and often disorienting changes we are undergoing in all 
facets of our lives. As just one example: we are relearning not only changes in how our body responds sexually but our whole relationship 
with sexuality as well. With so much profound restructuring all happening at once we can certainly feel lost on rough vast seas. But we are not alone -- by the year 2010 there will be 50 million women experiencing some phase of menopause. That much upheaval will shake up the whole culture, and just in time. 
Come join us to explore letting go, allowing change and choosing the inevitable. This workshop will include presentation, small group 
discussion and guided exercises designed to provide the tools for mapping and navigating this shifting terrain. 
Tracy's classes are popular and informative, fun and lively. She's taught experientially for 20 years, including sex classes for 10, and 
she has a master's in counseling plus a degree in women's studies.

# Bringing Back The Love - Saturday, Jan 28th, Love Parade Benefit @ Somarts Center

 Love Parade San Francisco, along with the Somarts Cultural Center, Opel, Tantra, Qool, Anon Salon, Spundae,

More info below... 

We would like to invite you to participate in two fabulous fundraisers for Loveparade San Francisco 2006 
http://www.loveparadesf.org  and the SomArts Cultural Center (www.somarts.org). Both events willbe held 
at SomArts, 934 Brannan Street in San Francisco. 

On Friday, January 27th, Skills DJ Workshop has brought together 20 
different production companies and 50 DJs for "GIVING BACK THE LOVE". This 
should be a rocking party showcasing the exuberance and idealism of the 
younger side of the bay area electronic dance scene. The flyer and lineup 
can be seen at 
http://www.skillsdj.com 

The 2005 Loveparade was a great success with well over 50,000 people 
spreading the love along Market Street and at Civic Center. The costs of 
the city fees and personel required for a downtown parade were huge however, 
so many groups are coming together to pay the remaining debts so that 
planning for the Loveparade San Francisco 2006 can proceed full steam ahead! 
For all those many people who forgot to give the $5 donation at the 
Loveparade gates, here is your chance to help make sure that Loveparade 
stays a yearly event in San Francisco, a city with an international 
reputation for Love in the streets. 

The SomArts Cultural Gallery is a non-profit art gallery and event space 
that hosted many seminal electronic dance and art parties until those were 
prohibited in 1996 because of permitting problems. Because of the 
importance of Somarts to the community, the SFLNC pushed the City to allow 
entertainment at SomArts and full time late night permits were granted in 
2003. Recently, Somarts completed a major building project to allow high 
occupancy for events, so the community is now coming together to help pay 
off some of SomArts construction loans! After almost ten years, Somarts 
will now be fully available to the community for special events! 

All equipment, talent and labor for these events is being donated by the 
community and all proceeds will be split evenly between Somarts and 
Loveparade San Francisco! 

While the DJ lineups are pretty much set for these events, we're still 
looking for volunteers for security, bartending, and setup and cleanup. 
There is also room for some art, visuals and performance.

Second meeting focuses on off body moves including advanced jumps, spins, body rolls, tosses. These seminars take moves you already know and has you perform them on many other dimensions and angles. More challenging moves and tricks also provided. Emphasis is on creating more flow in transitions, integrating dance with your complex moves. Each evening will have a jam circle to close with performance critique by your peers. Hot music, great people, detailed instruction. Printed copies of two articles written by HoopGirl on the topic of performing hoopdance, provided to all students. $85 for two 2 hour sessions.

#  1/29, Pacifica, BAVEG Vegan Food Party + "Food as Advocacy"
Please join us for Bay Area Vegetarians first Vegan Food Party of 2006! 
 
This is a wonderful opportunity to start the New Year by sharing compassionate and cruelty-free foods with like-minded folks.  Everyone is welcome, both veg and non-veg people, members and non-members.  In fact, we encourage non-veg folks to attend so they can see the variety of wonderful vegan foods available. 
 
Our Vegan Food Parties are potluck-style, meaning each person should bring a vegan dish that provides six generous servings (or if there are two of you, one dish that serves 12, and so forth), a serving utensil, ingredient list, and your own place setting and beverage.  
 
Please share a homemade vegan dish with us -- it could be your favorite dish  when you were a new veg*n, the one to you always serve to non-veg friends, or simply one you enjoy making.  We also welcome folks to "animal test" new vegan recipes  -- you'll find many willing volunteers to try new vegan foods at our VFPs.
 
This month's VFP has a special presentation: 
 
"Food as Advocacy" with Alex Bury
 
Leafleting, tabling, and protesting are great forms of advocacy to help animals and promote vegetarianism, but a great veg*n dish can speak volumes towards promoting veg*n foods.  Alex Bury will share strategies and tips useful towards creating veg*n dishes that are particularly appealing to your non-veg family and friends, as well as aspiring veg*ns.  She will demonstrate - live and in person! - how easy it is to create this type of dish. 
 
Alex Bury is a graduate of the Culinary Institute of America, where she learned all about cooking meat.  Now she is a vegan chef (formerly of Sparks restaurant in Guerneville), a full-time PETA staffer, and a chef instructor for the McDougall program.
 
This presentation is geared towards new or aspiring vegetarians as well as those wishing to use delicious food to promote vegetarianism.
 
What: Vegan Food Party
Where: Pacifica (about 15 minutes south of SF)
When: 1/29/06 Sunday, 12:00 pm - 3:00 pm 
Host: Tammy and Chris
RSVP: http://www.evite.com/sfbaveg@yahoo.com/vfp_jan2006 
 
You are welcome to use the evite to post carpool availability or requests, or if you could provide a Daly City BART pickup/dropoff, that'd be great, too!!)There is no additional cost to attend or participate in this event.  The only cost is your contribution of vegan food to share.  We *do* ask for volunteers who can arrive early to help us set up tables and chairs and put them away after the event.  Set-up is at 11:30 am, please let Tammy know if you can help.   
 
For folks new to Vegan Food Parties or vegan foods, please see our VFP Guidelines page for more information - 
http://www.bayareaveg.org/vfpdetails.htm 
 
For recipe suggestions, subscribers to SFBAVEG are welcome to ask questions there, in the bayareaveg.org forum, or check out this site:

Hope to see many of you there!   PLEASE use the evite to invite your veg and non-veg friends to join us!

# Painful Deception Wed Feb 1, 2006 7:00 pm

The Films are  FREE  but  $5  donations are accepted
 
PAINFUL DECEPTION     Presented by Gypsy Gypsy

This film is a video version of Eric Hufschmid's book, Painful  
Questions.  It provides an in-depth analysis of the Twin Towers'  
sctructure based on a scientific approach as well as careful  
observation and simple common sense.  Eric was the first person to  
bring the mysterious collapse of Building 7 to the attention of the  
public.  Building 7 was a 47-story building near the Twin Towers that  
disintegrated into dust in 7 seconds a few hours after the Towers  
fell.  Eric points out that the same demolition crew was hired to  
clean up the rubble of the World Trade Center and the rubble of the  
Oklahoma City bombing -- another cover up and inside job.  Eric takes  
a very close look at the Pentagon crash and points out a number of  
obvious facts that make the official story fall apart.

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

# Dick 'N Dubya: A Republican Outreach Cabaret Thurs, Fri, Sat Feb 2 - 25 8.00pm

Thurs $10-15 sliding scale; $5 student rush at door. Fri & Sat $15-22
 
Dubya (Amos Glick) and Dick (Ed Holmes) fresh from an extremely  
successful run at The Marsh Berkeley, during which they exerted their  
considerable talents to convert everyone in the audience into a card- 
carrying member of the Republican Party, are ready to try their luck  
in San Francisco.  The show is full of singing (yes, Dubya sings),  
dancing (yes, Dick dances), speeches (Dubya, much to Dick's  
consternation, has decided to write his own) and a raucous press  
conference where the audience asks the questions. It is rumored that  
Barbara Bush is so encouraged by her son's derring-do that she is  
flying out to assist him.

Ed Holmes, a navy veteran and San Francisco Mime Troupe member for  
nineteen years, instigated the annual St. Stupid's Day Parade, now in  
its 27th year.  Amos Glick, a San Francisco Mime Troupe member since  
1997, represented the troupe on the Lollapalooza '95 Tour doing  
political sketch comedy and guerrilla theater.  Masters of political  
satire, they honed their impersonations of Dick 'n Dubya during the  
Mime Troupe's outdoor shows.  Bill Allard (director) is a founding  
member of Duck's Breath Mystery Theater.  In 2004, he directed Merle  
Kessler and Raoul Brody in BROKE at The Marsh, San Francisco.

Where on Earth are we going? And what can we do about it? 

These are two of the questions that lie at the heart of the Awakening the Dreamer, Changing the Dream Symposium . The Symposium explores the link between three of humanity's most critical concerns: environmental sustainability, social justice and spiritual fulfillment. Using video clips from some of the world's most respected thinkers, along with inspiring short films, leading edge information and dynamic group interactions, the Symposium allows participants to gain a new insight into the very nature of our time and the opportunity we have to shape and impact the direction of our world with our everyday choices and actions.

The aim of the Symposium is not merely to learn more about the world, but to grapple and come to grips with the very assumptions that underlie the way we ourselves see the world and our place in it, and with what each of us can do - both individually and cooperatively - to move the world in this new direction.

If you are ready to be disturbed, inspired and moved to action, if you are ready to be introduced to a thriving community of like-hearted, deeply committed cohorts who are actively engaged in awakening from and changing the dream of our modern industrial culture, we invite you to come to the next Symposium.

American College of Traditional Chinese Medicine (ACTCM) will be

THE LOST ART OF NUTRITION

A Lecture by T. Colin Campbell, PhD, Project Director of the China
Study and the Jacob Gould Schurman Professor Emeritus of Nutritional
Biochemistry at Cornell University

Many in our society, perhaps most, do not appreciate the simple fact
that we are what we eat. We pay a huge price for this
misunderstanding. Many believe that the single most important
disabling budgetary factor in our society is the rising cost of health
care, more aptly known as disease care. Central to this difficulty is
our abject misunderstanding of nutrition, what it means, how it can be
used, how we study its effects, and how national policy on its effects
on health is developed. Using conservative figures, it is easy to
argue that the leading cause of death in the U.S. is our
misunderstanding of nutrition. As a result, we rely on drugs as a
means to health instead of food as a means to health. In brief, the
present system fosters wealth for the few at the expense of health for
the many.

Dr. Campbell, with his son Tom, is the author of the recently
published book The China Study: The Most Comprehensive Study of
Nutrition Ever Conducted and the Startling Implications for Diet,
Weight Loss and Long-Term Health    see 
http://www.thechinastudy.com
The New York Times has recognized the study (known formally as the
China-Oxford-Cornell Diet and Health Project, a 20 year partnership
which surveyed diseases and lifestyle factors in rural China and
Taiwan) as the "Grand Prix of epidemiology." In The China Study, Dr.
Campbell details the connection between nutrition and heart disease,
diabetes, and cancer, and also its ability to reduce or reverse the
risk or effects of these deadly illnesses.  For an excerpt from the
Introduction, visit
http://www.thechinastudy.com/PDFs/ChinaStudy_Excerpt.pdf

For more than 40 years, Dr. Campbell has been active in experimental
nutrition research and policy development, has authored more than 300
research papers, and has participated in many national and
international diet and health policy reports.

The sexual force is the light generator of the body. When it is clear, flowing and open we connect with our own feminine and masculine in JOY and the full expression of that Life force. In this evening we will experience breathing and sounding to open to this flow. We will clear and activate the Chakras in preparation for a Tantric Deeksha. This deeksha is a nondenominational energy transference where a neuro-biological process creates a shift in the brain.The joy center is stimulated.
$20 Advance, $25 At The Door

PASSION, ECSTASY, and BLISS are your  BIRTHRIGHT with Jwala
Sunday, February 12 10 AM - 6 PM
In this day Jwala will share some of the most profound techniques she has learned in her 30 years of Tantra. COME remove the wounds and blocks that keep you from experiencing your sexual and life force full expression...whether these conditionings come from family dynamics or social programs once these blocks are cleared, new and more fulfilling possibilities are only a breath away,your true human potential awaits you.  Some of the days techniques include: Fire Breath Energy Orgasm...this is a conscious connected breath technique that releases old stuck energy and makes way for your erotic potential.  Next we will delve into a Tibetean Pulsing technique that releases wounds from the bone and often is done in dyads or group-chains lying on the floor. Lastly we will experience some of the exercises from herTantra book by running sexual energy. No explicit sex in the workshop.
$85 Advance, $100 At The Door

# Celcius  9/11 Wed Feb 15 7:00 pm FREE  but  $5  donations are accepted
 
CELCIUS 9/11 Presented by Gypsy Gypsy

This film by Jeremy Wright is subtitled: "Full Spectrum Dominance and  
the War of Terror." It asks tough questions that Michael Moore's  
"Farenhiet 9/11" did not ask. It features the highlights of the  
International Citizens' Inquiry into 911 organized by the 9/11 Truth  
Alliance in the spring of 2003. In part 1, Jeremy provides a very  
extensive and in-depth overview of all different aspects of the 9/11  
attacks. Part 2 is dedicated to "the bigger picture," the political  
climate that is surrounding us now: the plans of world domination and  
the execution of the plans by the U.S. government. This informative  
film is also very moving emotionally, with a lot of personal passion  
and compassion.

# Saturday, Feb. 18, 10 AM to 12:30 AM 
Health Care for All  "Citizen" congressional hearing
 Board of Supervisors' Chambers at Marin Civic Center. Lynn Woolsey will preside, Sen. Sheila Kuehl has been invited, and we hope to have numerous other legislators present. The object is to tell them what's wrong with our health-care system and to demand a system that works. There will be many people testifying. These hearings are being held around the country with the support of Rep. John Conyers; it's all part of building an irresistible groundswell for a single-payer system.
 This is all part of building the mass movement that we will require before we can hope that a single-payer system will pass. There are too many monied interests opposed to expect that mere good will and good sense could overthrow the disastrous system we have today. Like civil rights, like the anti-tobacco movement, we must first have a sea change in public thinking. 
 Information about hearings and planned hearings nationwide is available at www.Healthcare-now.org, our local site http://healthcareforall.org/marin.html

Thank you Brooke for providing a space and for helping to host this potluck! This one falls near my birthday, so I guess it will be a party for that (and anyone else who was born in february) as well. 

 To participate, bring an organic living vegan dish to share, for approximately 10-15 people. If you can, label the ingredients.* 

 Let me know if you have questions or need a recipe suggestion (jessy@earthshareca.org). Feel free to invite others too. Just add their email to the list or pass along the information. 

 Don't know what qualifies as raw or living vegan food?

 FAQ from living foods website:  http://www.living-foods.com 

 **What do raw/living foodists eat?
 Raw and Living Foodist eat all fruits, vegetables, sprouts, nuts, seeds, grains, sea vegetables, and other organic/natural foods that have not been processed. In some instances, there are special ways to prepare the foods (example: most raw and living foodists soak/sprout nuts, seeds and grains before consuming them). For some delicious recipes, see our recipe section!

     Featuring yummy treats, dancing, entertainment, live
and silent auction and more…
     All proceeds will benefit  The Conexus Cathedral
 Project* , a project of Conexus Village, which comes
together to create, not
 only a joint community comprised of several SF-based
tribes, but also a
 structure/art installation on the playa that reflects
hope, inspiration, and  beauty.
      The Conexus Cathedral Project  aspires to inspire all
BRC residents to participate and interact with it – to
generate ritual, ceremony, and art; to dance,
celebrate, and surrender; to experience joy  and
spirit, fun and silliness. By day, The Cathedral is a
place of  simplicity and seemliness, creating
sanctuary and refuge for the BRC community.  By night,
The Cathedral glows on the playa with color, magic,
and glamour – attracting BRC citizens to play,
celebrate, and explore feelings the structure might
inspire. To learn more about our vision, see

Overview
This 14th edition of the Digital Be-In combines its lineage of invention and cultural evolution marking the dawn of the digital age with the emerging green economy and sustainable culture movement. Producer Michael Gosney (whose Verbum magazine began the Digital Be-In during the late 1980s) developed the Paradox conferences on sustainable communities at Arcosanti, Arizona in 1997, 1999 and 2001  http://www.greencenturyinstitute.org/paradox.htm  and formed the Green Century Institute in San Francisco in 2002. Planetwork, founded in San Francisco by Jim Fournier and Elizabeth Thompson in 1998, fosters the creative application of digital tools for positive global change through a series of conferences and monthly forums in major cities. The Green Century Institute and Planetwork are working with several San Francisco Bay Area groups that were involved in the seminal World Environment Day week in San Francisco June 5–11, 2005  http://www.wed2005.org  in the development of this combination daytime symposium, evening rally/celebration and late night dance party. As in the past, the Digital Be-In will reach beyond the physical event with a live netcast, information-intense website and new kinds of exposure and interaction via social networks and blogs. The theme “Planet Code” implies our writing (and re-writing where necessary) the “codes” that define our place within and interaction with the natural environment, and calls upon the high technology community we have encouraged and celebrated over the years to empower the sustainability movement with bold, forward-thinking initiatives. 

Sponsorship
Digital Be-In 14 will offer a variety of opportunities for sponsors to reach opinion leaders, press and a receptive public interested in SOLUTIONS FOR A SUSTAINABLE CULTURE. All presentations and content associated with the EARTH DAY BE-IN will emphasize new projects and initiatives: actions! We encourage sponsors to use the Be-In as a launching platform for products and campaigns that are making a difference. Outreach via marketing messages, the Be-In website, associated organization websites, social networks and public relations will be designed to inform and connect the public with sustainable culture resources. 2006 is a vital year for shifting the tide of awareness and action toward sustainability and April 22, 2006 promises to be a pivotal date. Please contact Michael Gosney or Justin Weiner from GCI for details on sponsorship programs.

# FYI the US runs a school of assasins / torture at Ft. Benning, GA
Previously called School Of the Americas (SOA),
now called Western Hemispheric Institute for Security Cooperation (WHINSEC).
Congress demanded SOA be closed down. So they simply renamed it.
SOA used to be in Panama, until Manuel Noriega said it had to go.
Noriega was an important drug smuggling ally for the CIA.
When he broke with the CIA because he was not happy about the US school of torture in Panama, his days were numbered. 
Two other notable men who the CIA made alliances with:
Sadam Hussein, Osama Bin Laden.
The CIA makes allies of people it can use to torture and murder it's enemies.
The CIA was arming, training and using Osama Bin Laden to fight the USSR in Afghanistan.
Before Sept 11, 2001, the CIA was negotiating an oil pipeline through Afghanistan to be built by Haliburton, paid for by Enron, to supply Unocal 76.  Those negotiations broke down.  That was plan A.
Plan B was flying our own airplanes into our own buildings and blaming them.
SEE: Operation Northwoods (1962) Plan B has been on the table for 43 years.
Cheney, Perle, Wolfowitz, et al are part of Project for a new American Century (PNAC) who wrote: (a year before 911)
Without a Pearl Harbor style invasion the American people will not accept 
the empirical mobilization necessary to seize middle eastern oil. 
CIA initiated Saddam Hussein by having him commit an assasination in Iraq to prove himself.
Once installed to power by CIA, Saddam did oversee the torture and execution of an entire generation Iraqis.
Every Iraqi student or activist who had political aspirations was killed by Saddam who was a CIA operative.

The Great Owl Invasion
http://groups.yahoo.com/group/TheNeuschwabenlandTimes/message/10037
obvious and blatant freemasonic symbols on the dollar bill, what precisely that hidden microscopic owl is doing there.
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.


As an American citizen I am bound by no law executed by Bush Coup.
I shall not follow any fruadulent advice from John Ashcroft or Mr Torture: Alberto Gonzales.
I am bound by no Judgement by John Roberts or any other criminal installed by BushHitler.
Wake UP America, the current organized crime family Hi-Jacking Washington, DC
is similar (in fact connected) to the NAZI hijacking of a highly civilized Germany. 

Patriot Act is illegal.  No law or provision of Patriot act is legally binding.
Any law that is repugnant to the Constitution of the United States of America
is Null and Void - Marburry V. Madison, 1803.

Any officer who attempts to enforce an illegal law such as patriot act is unlawful and may be ignored and/ or arrested.

The Declaration of Independence of the Thirteen Colonies 
In CONGRESS, July 4, 1776 
The unanimous Declaration of the thirteen united States of America, 
When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation. 
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. --That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, --That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security. --Such has been the patient sufferance of these Colonies; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former Systems of Government. The history of the present King of Great Britain [George III] is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute Tyranny over these States. To prove this, let Facts be submitted to a candid world. 
He has refused his Assent to Laws, the most wholesome and necessary for the public good. 
He has forbidden his Governors to pass Laws of immediate and pressing importance, unless suspended in their operation till his Assent should be obtained; and when so suspended, he has utterly neglected to attend to them. 
He has refused to pass other Laws for the accommodation of large districts of people, unless those people would relinquish the right of Representation in the Legislature, a right inestimable to them and formidable to tyrants only. 
He has called together legislative bodies at places unusual, uncomfortable, and distant from the depository of their public Records, for the sole purpose of fatiguing them into compliance with his measures. 
He has dissolved Representative Houses repeatedly, for opposing with manly firmness his invasions on the rights of the people. 
He has refused for a long time, after such dissolutions, to cause others to be elected; whereby the Legislative powers, incapable of Annihilation, have returned to the People at large for their exercise; the State remaining in the mean time exposed to all the dangers of invasion from without, and convulsions within. 
He has endeavoured to prevent the population of these States; for that purpose obstructing the Laws for Naturalization of Foreigners; refusing to pass others to encourage their migrations hither, and raising the conditions of new Appropriations of Lands. 
He has obstructed the Administration of Justice, by refusing his Assent to Laws for establishing Judiciary powers. 
He has made Judges dependent on his Will alone, for the tenure of their offices, and the amount and payment of their salaries. 
He has erected a multitude of New Offices, and sent hither swarms of Officers to harass our people, and eat out their substance. 
He has kept among us, in times of peace, Standing Armies without the consent of our legislatures. 
He has affected to render the Military independent of and superior to the Civil power. 
He has combined with others to subject us to a jurisdiction foreign to our constitution and unacknowledged by our laws; giving his Assent to their Acts of pretended Legislation: 
For Quartering large bodies of armed troops among us: 
For protecting them, by a mock Trial, from punishment for any Murders which they should commit on the Inhabitants of these States: 
For cutting off our Trade with all parts of the world: 
For imposing Taxes on us without our Consent: 
For depriving us, in many cases, of the benefits of Trial by Jury: 
For transporting us beyond Seas to be tried for pretended offences: 
For abolishing the free System of English Laws in a neighbouring Province, establishing therein an Arbitrary government, and enlarging its Boundaries so as to render it at once an example and fit instrument for introducing the same absolute rule into these Colonies: 
For taking away our Charters, abolishing our most valuable Laws, and altering fundamentally the Forms of our Governments: 
For suspending our own Legislatures, and declaring themselves invested with power to legislate for us in all cases whatsoever. 
He has abdicated Government here, by declaring us out of his Protection and waging War against us. 
He has plundered our seas, ravaged our Coasts, burnt our towns, and destroyed the lives of our people. 
He is at this time transporting large Armies of foreign Mercenaries to compleat the works of death, desolation and tyranny, already begun with circumstances of Cruelty and perfidy scarcely paralleled in the most barbarous ages, and totally unworthy the Head of a civilized nation. 
He has constrained our fellow Citizens taken Captive on the high Seas to bear Arms against their Country, to become the executioners of their friends and Brethren, or to fall themselves by their Hands. 
He has excited domestic insurrections amongst us, and has endeavoured to bring on the inhabitants of our frontiers, the merciless Indian Savages, whose known rule of warfare, is an undistinguished destruction of all ages, sexes and conditions. 
In every stage of these Oppressions We have Petitioned for Redress in the most humble terms: Our repeated Petitions have been answered only by repeated injury. A Prince whose character is thus marked by every act which may define a Tyrant, is unfit to be the ruler of a free people. 
Nor have We been wanting in attentions to our British brethren. We have warned them from time to time of attempts by their legislature to extend an unwarrantable jurisdiction over us. We have reminded them of the circumstances of our emigration and settlement here. We have appealed to their native justice and magnanimity, and we have conjured them by the ties of our common kindred to disavow these usurpations, which, would inevitably interrupt our connections and correspondence. They too have been deaf to the voice of justice and of consanguinity. We must, therefore, acquiesce in the necessity, which denounces our Separation, and hold them, as we hold the rest of mankind, Enemies in War, in Peace Friends. 
We, therefore, the Representatives of the united States of America, in General Congress, Assembled, appealing to the Supreme Judge of the world for the rectitude of our intentions, do, in the Name, and by the Authority of the good People of these Colonies, solemnly publish and declare, That these United Colonies are, and of Right ought to be Free and Independent States; that they are Absolved from all Allegiance to the British Crown, and that all political connection between them and the State of Great Britain, is and ought to be totally dissolved; and that as Free and Independent States, they have full Power to levy War, conclude Peace, contract Alliances, establish Commerce, and to do all other Acts and Things which Independent States may of right do. And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes and our sacred Honor. 
The signers of the Declaration represented the new states as follows: 
New Hampshire: 
Josiah Bartlett, William Whipple, Matthew Thornton

"You are a member of government. And one of that majority which has doomed my country to destruction. You've begun to burn our towns and murder our people. Look upon you hands. They are stained with the blood of your relations. You and I were long friends.You are now my enemy and I am yours.".........................Benjamin Franklin 7-5-1775 



Preventing / resisting  MARTIAL LAW: by building self-sufficient communities: 

Learn to resist, better yet, to be invisible.
But be visible now as we all must stand up to prosecute high crimes.
Learn the laws of sovereignty. This is the freedom gauranteed to all.

Know where you will get water in future.
Grow your own food. Eat your perishables. Save your non-perishables.
Have lots of grains and seeds in glass mason jars, so you can sprout and eat them while waiting for your crops.

Do not recycle large bottles. Especially keep glass and stainless steel.
Fill with spring water or tap water and store in safe places.
Start composting NOW. Build your soil.
Do not let "gardeners" remove your leaves. They become soil.
Flag down a tree trimming truck. Have them dump wood chips in your yard.
PLANT TREES

Get involved in your community. Create community.

Why build it the shackled rail cars and trucks and camps and order 
guillotines on this scale if you are NOT planning on using it?


"Excuse me sir, would you step this way?"
http://www.marketwire.com/mw/release_html_b1?release_id=105967&tsource=6


Here is a suggested possibility of a proper response to retain your 
rights to not be searched and seized by the USA corporation or local 
agent offering to "protect" you.

Option of a possible response based upon my and others' understanding 
and reading of court findings revolving around exactly at what point 
you give up your Constitutional non-search & seizure rights:

In the real world, asserting your rights politely usually only works if 
your rights are respected by a higher-up who knows the legal score, and 
you  answer no question ever.  Not in detention, not in jail, ever. At 
some point someone somewhere in the chain knows this truthful 
information - while the practical full loss of all rights in an 
executive  dictatorship for our own good is not in effect.

"How are you today, sir?" This is a trained ploy to elicit 'proper' 
response without the officer even knowing why. He is not told the whole 
truth and is simply told to start the investigation by asking...so as 
to "be friendly."

Any answer or giving up of documents at any point makes you 
"participating in an investigation" - unless you answer ONLY in the 
form of a QUESTION.

Example: smile, and politely ask "Who is asking and why?" 
This immediately determines the encounter status and 
whether the person is acting in their private or public capacity.

If you ANSWER, you have automatically given up all rights. Once given 
up, they cannot be restored. Because "Once you testify in part you must 
testify in whole."

If taken against your will, you can come back later and win.

Be friendly, be polite.

"I respectfully do not consent to this encounter. If I had and gave you 
such documents can they be used against me in a court of law? 
Would you please inform your supervisor what I just said? Am I free to go?" 
(Immediately determines your status.)

Theoretically, this applies not just to airports, but roadblocks, 
traffic stops, street encounters = they are all the same.
Here are the most current pictures on American prison  camps I've
seen yet, with what will seem like a valid reason for filling them up.
