It is a vision of deep and abiding poverty. Yet the Lumpkins are not alone in their plight. They are just the negative side of the American equation. America does have vast, wealthy suburbs, huge shopping malls and a busy middle class, but it also has vast numbers of poor, struggling to make it in a low-wage economy with minimal government help.

 Vietnam memories curb arrests over Iraq duty 

2/16/2006 

WASHINGTON (Bloomberg) - Pentagon officials have refrained from arresting and imprisoning military reservists who refuse to report for duty in Iraq out of concern of evoking memories of Vietnam, a U.S. congressman said. 

There is some "uncomfortableness at the Pentagon to have them arrested," Rep. Steve Buyer, R-Ind., said at a hearing on Capitol Hill Wednesday. 

Instead, the Defense Department is considering general discharges for the less than 100 reservists who haven't reported for deployment to Iraq, Buyer said. Such discharges would entitle the reservists to Veterans Administration benefits. 

"All hell would break loose in the country about the war and the way we're fighting it" if the reservists were arrested, said Lawrence J. Korb, a senior resident fellow at the Center for American Progress, a research organization in Washington. 

The U.S. Army has issued stop-loss orders to prevent about 50,000 soldiers from leaving the service after their active-duty terms are completed. The Pentagon has relied heavily on guard and reserve troops for missions in Iraq and Afghanistan. 

Fewer than 100 declined to report, Major Elizabeth Robbins, an Army spokeswoman said. The individuals haven't been designated as absent without leave, a status that could subject them to arrest, Robbins said.

# intro night in San Francisco this Wednesday February 22.
 Bring your friends and share this with anyone that you think could benefit Power Manifestation
 
Power Manifestation Intro Night Promotion    
 
Life doesn’t have to be so hard. When applying the practical philosophy of Power Manifestation, creating what you want in your life can be an effortless and joyous process. In this brief introductory course, you will be introduced to your Internal Guidance System or IGS and Power Manifestation.   Using the IGS will bring the power of discernment back into your hands, allowing you to make powerful and effective choices to create the world around you. Power Manifestation is a combination of quantum physics (as presented in the film What the Bleep Do We Know?) and spiritual principles. This combination reveals to us how the world operates through vibrational frequencies. Our thoughts are vibrations, and every thought we have creates a vibrational attractor field, which in turn creates our reality. Through the universal Law of Attraction, we attract to us the vibration of our thoughts as well as the intensity of what we are focused on. Using this revolutionary process offered in the Power Manifestation courses, you will learn to harness this power to create with clarity and ease. Power Manifestation: The Intro Night Basics Course presents this philosophy and offers you a unique combination of practices that enable you to know your true desires and manifest them more quickly.
The Power Manifestation courses were created by Zen DeBrucke, who has spent more than 15 years researching and studying the subject of consciousness and manifestation. Zen has also been a successful business executive and entrepreneur and has coached hundreds of business leaders and individuals to success in every area of their lives.

Film Series on 9/11: An Inside Job
	
The Truth and Lies of 9/11

Presented by Gypsy Gypsy

This is the famous documentary by Mike Ruppert who once was a  
narcotics investigator in the L.A. Police Department until he  
realized that the CIA was dealing drugs and arms.  Authorities  
offered him a nice sallary to keep his mouth shut, but they obviously  
underestimated him; Mike became a whistle blower instead.  They tried  
to threaten him, they even shot him, but he survived and never backed  
down.  He spent many years touring the country and exposing the CIA's  
drug dealings and other dirty secrets.  Today Mike is justly  
considered the pioneer of the 9/11 truth movement.  In this  
documentary, Mike explains the connection between the CIA and Wall  
Street -- Wall Street being a front, a "laundromat," for the CIA.  He  
points out a connection between the put options on both American and  
United Airlines and the CIA as well as many other incriminating  
facts.  He is the author of Crossing the Rubicon,  the second best- 
selling book after The Kean Commission Report on 911.    http://

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

# KIRTAN DEBUT @ MEDICINE BUDDHA TEAHOUSE & HEALING CENTER
DATE: Thurs 23 Feb, 7.30pm
ADDRESS: Half a block from Rainbow Grocery, 2 Shotwell @ 14th

Kate Maembe and Clark Samson, accompanied by Lyman Spencer on tabla, will be 
leading an evening of kirtan and ecstatic chanting. Please come and join us 
in our prayers and songs to the divine.
(Kirtan is an Indian spiritual tradition and devotional practice that 
consists of repetitive singing and calling to the divine using traditional 
sanskrit mantras. The roots of this practice are lost in time but have been 
in continuous use for over 5,000 years.)
This is the first kirtan event in the newly opened Medicine Buddha Teahouse 
and Healing Center. It's a beautiful new community space - come check it out 
and drink rare and vintage teas from the Chinese Himalayas!
PARKING: Our previous e-mail suggested parking in the adjacent Foods & Co 
parking lot. However, this has a one-hour limit, so nearby street parking is

# 2-20 9:00 AM  One Taste yoga studio
 Hey there folk, I just started teaching  an open-level hatha class:

Mon/Fri 9-10:30am 
at One Taste: 1074 Folsom at 7th, 415.503.1100 
http://onetastesf.com/yoga_dance.html  

Through the end of March, One Taste will only $7 to anyone who says, "I'm a member of Hannah's community."  This is intended to serve the dual function of 1)providing an inexpensive class to community and 2) helping me build the class attendence.  Right now the class is quite small, so whoever shows up soon gets the additional perk of receiving a lot of personal attention.

 # free cancer DVD by Michael Greger
Free Video Night at the Red Victorian Peace Café on the last Friday of the
month resumes.
Friday, February 24 at 7:00 p.m. 
Vegetarian and Vegan food are available before and during the show. 
1665 Haight Street, near Ashbury, San Francisco. 
“Stopping Cancer Before It Starts” – Cancer Proofing Your Body with Plant
Superfoods with Doctor-Chef Michael Greger, M.D. 1 Hour 45 Minutes. Many of
our members have seen Dr. Greger in person. This DVD captures his dynamic
and engaging style with lots of information on whole plant superfoods that
may block and even reverse the four steps of tumor formation and then shows
him preparing quick, tasty, nutritious recipes! Dr. Greger believes 70% of
all cancer deaths are preventable through diet alone. He will explain what
free radicals and antioxidants really are and how specific foods work to
protect your body from the ravages of aging, cancer and other chronic
degenerative diseases. Dr. Greger shows how a phyto-nutrient rich
plant-based diet may be our best protection against the cancer epidemic.
Learn the why’s and the how’s of optimum healthy eating. For those who
already have heard Dr. Greger speak, this will be a great opportunity to
review his information. It would also be a great opportunity to bring a
friend or family member to hear and see “the most articulate and
entertaining medical speaker on plant-based nutrition today” – Michael
Klaper, M.D. Director, Institute of Nutrition Education and Research.

# Feb 25 NATIONAL BROADCAST OF AWARD-WINNING DOCUMENTARY ON LINK TV
Link TV Makes Pro-Animal Film Available to Viewers in 26 Million American Homes

The Witness Highlights the Dramatic and Inspiring Personal Transformation of Tough Brooklyn Construction Contractor Whose Heart is Opened by the Love of a Kitten

Airs Saturday, Feb. 25 at 7 PM PST /10 PM EST
(DIRECTV Ch. 375/DISH Network Ch. 9410)

Send a personalized e-vite to friends and family:
http://www.tribeofheart.org/tohhtml/linktvevite.htm

San Francisco, CA—Jan. 17, 2006—Link TV today announced the upcoming broadcast of the award-winning documentary The Witness, produced by James LaVeck and directed by Jenny Stein of Tribe of Heart. The Witness,  which airs Saturday, Feb. 25 at 7 PM PST, 10 PM EST, during Link TV’s pledge drive, tells the inspiring story of tough construction contractor turned animal rescuer Eddie Lama. A film festival favorite, The Witness has won seven Best Documentary awards and one Best of Festival award. Los Angeles Times columnist Howard Rosenberg wrote, “The Witness is one man’s truth that cries out for mass exposure… may be the most important and persuasive film about animals ever made.”

Actor William Baldwin, who calls The Witness "one of the most moving documentaries I've ever seen,” urges viewers to “watch this important, life-changing film.” Baldwin and his wife, singer-songwriter Chynna Phillips of the musical group Wilson-Phillips, were so impressed with The Witness that they hosted screenings at their home for their friends and colleagues.

“Eddie Lama, who learned about violence through his own rites of passage on the mean streets of Brooklyn, now speaks with eloquence, passion and humility about the pressing need to protect the vulnerable,” said Baldwin. “That a man with his life experience could be so completely transformed by spending time with a kitten is a testimony both to the magic of the human-animal relationship and the magic of the human spirit."

“So many people who have seen The Witness at film festivals and independent theatres have asked us, ‘why isn’t this playing on national TV?’” said the film’s producer James LaVeck. “We always tell them there are a lot of great films they’re not getting to see that tell the truth about what goes on behind closed doors in this country. That’s why now, this opportunity to reach a mass audience in partnership with a broadcaster with the integrity and independence of Link TV, means so much.”

“We bring documentary films to the American viewer that extend far beyond the narrow scope of the popular media,” said Link TV Producer Toni Whiteman. “The Witness is one of those films, made with the courage and commitment to speak on behalf of those who have no voice. The strength of the force to banish this provocative film is the very reason we chose to broadcast it.”

ABOUT TRIBE OF HEART: Producer James LaVeck and Director Jenny Stein founded their Ithaca, New York-based non-profit production company, Tribe of Heart, to fill an unmet need for films that explore the human potential to respond to injustice with creativity and non-violence.

ABOUT LINK TV: Link TV is a non-commercial, independent television network available in more than 26 million U.S. homes on DIRECTV channel 375 and DISH Network channel 9410. The 24-hour programming is a mix of documentaries, international news, foreign films and the best of World Music. Link TV is operated by Link Media, Inc., a California non-profit organization, with production studios in San Francisco, New York and Washington.

# Masculine Presence- Feminine Fire Workshop 
 Saturday, February 25, 2006  - Sunday, February 26,  
 Hello to all! 

I have never distributed anything on my tribe network before, but this is the kind of thing that might be the little kick that one of you is needing. There’s a personal development workshop coming up the weekend of February 25th and 26th at WholeBody Wisdom in Oakland. 

I’ve been working privately with the instructor and can attest to the soundness of what he communicates. He has the ability to connect with students at whatever level they’re able to work from and draw out of them a grounded strength that they didn’t even know was being hidden. His teachings focus on the alignment of our different bodies (heart, mind, soul, and sexuality), releasing energy caught up in shame and fear into a unified voice of love. This is his “Inspiring Masculine Presence- Unleashing Feminine Fire” workshop- the one that I hear referenced most by his previous clients. 

I’m going to be doing this workshop with my partner. It’s not specifically a couple’s thing, but we decided to take this step in our growth together. 
It’s also not for everyone. But for those it is for, it will be invaluable. 

I would recommend at least checking out what Scott does with his practice. When we’ve plateaued in our development it can be invigorating just to see that this kind of empowerment work is happening nearby.

# Synergy Social: Quantum Relationships   $18/25
When: Monday, February 27th 7:30pm to  10:30pm
Where: OneTaste @  1070 Folsom in San Francisco

===========================================

Would you like to experience less conflict in your life?  Would you like to
experience more synergy in your life?  We will explore how in this event,
giving us all an opportunity  to engage in creating the kind of world in
which we all want to belong.

The simple truth is that in relationships,  one and one never equal two.
They either equal more than two, and  synergy is experienced...or they equal
less than two...and conflict  is experienced. Therefore, all relating is
truly quantum relating.

What  is it that governs the patterns that either mesh well and create  more
of what we love and thrive on, or grind like ill-fitting  gears? What would
it be worth to you to have awareness and choice  around these dynamics? What
would it be worth to you to be able  to short-circuit conflict before it
escalates? How valuable would it be for you to be able to consciously create
synergy at work,  at play, and in romance? To have more access to
consciously creating  more beauty and joy in all of your relationships?

That is the conversation we will have as the center-piece  of this event.

# The Color of Palo Alto: Art Meets Canopy
How a Public Art Project is Helping to Preserve Our Urban Forest – One Photograph at a Time
Saturday, March 4, 9 -10:30 am Free
Presented by Canopy and the Palo Alto Art Center

Celebrate Arbor Month with a lively presentation by artist Samuel Yates on how The Color of Palo Alto incorporates technology, contemporary art, environmental protection, and public service into one award-winning public art project that helps maintain our urban forest.

The presentation will focus on how the City of Palo Alto will use the project to:
•	Respond more accurately and efficiently to daily tree inquiries from residents. 
•	Coordinate tree maintenance decisions between departments.
•	Assist the building permit application, smart planning, and tree verification process. 
•	Preserve city trees by reducing root system destruction.
•	Reduce pollution and natural resource use.
•	Promote the City’s environmental and renewable energy initiatives. 
•	Create the nation’s first photo-assisted 911 emergency response system.

As part of a public art project, artist Samuel Yates photographed each of the 17,860 properties in Palo Alto to find the average color of each property, street, and neighborhood. The final results, including "The Color of Palo Alto," will be unveiled later this year and used as paint, font, and product colors thereafter. The potential city benefits emerged in 2001 when the artist offered Palo Alto a free license to use his photographs and tie them into the citywide parcel data system.

San Francisco Magazine named it the "Best Art Project in the Bay Area;" Dwell Magazine gave it their "Nice Modernist" humanitarian award; and the San Jose Mercury News called it "The Great Palo Alto Art Experiment." Come see for yourself what it’s all about!

Two ways to help animals in San Francisco on Sun., March 5, 2006 Come to one or both:

 Please note:  
 The anti-KFC demonstration is on schedule in sun, fog or light drizzle.  It will be rescheduled in the event of rain.  
 The Advocates Dinner is taking place in all weather, rain or shine.

 (1) NEW TIME THIS MONTH ONLY:  Co-sponsored by the SF Vegetarian Society and the Veggie Jews' Tsedakah (charity) Brigade: Participate in the PETA campaign against Kentucky Fried Cruelty (see www.Kentuckyfriedcruelty.com). You can educate the public regarding KFC's treatment of chickens by passing out leaflets at KFC, 1900 Irving Street at the corner of 20th Avenue in San Francisco from 5:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. PETA is providing the literature.

 (2) Join the Veggie Jews Tsedakah Brigade for an Advocates Dinner:  At 6:00 p.m. we'll walk two blocks to Shangri La vegetarian
 restaurant (2026 Irving St. at 22nd Ave., 731-2548), a Kosher-vegan
 restaurant, where we'll order around 6:15 p.m. This is a chance to
 eat tasty, low-cost, Chinese vegan food; to socialize; and most
 importantly, to spend a few minutes writing letters to help relieve
 the suffering of animals. Suggestions for subjects and recipients
 of letters will be available but feel free to bring your own agenda,
 as well as your own paper, envelopes, pen and stamps.

# Sunday, 3/5, 2--5 pm -- Dr. Annie Sprinkle's workshop "How To Cure Sex Worker Burnout And Be Happy!"

Admission will be donation based. You may buy a ticket in advance or pay at the door. No one turned away for lack of funds. Get advanced tickets here: www.acteva.com/go/exoticevents  -- Sponsored by the Exotic Dancers' Education Project. HOW TO CURE SEX WORKER BURN OUT AND BE HAPPY with Annie Sprinkle, Ph.D.: former prostitute, stripper, porn actress turned sexologist/artist.

Are you less than happy with your sex work these days? What exactly is sex worker burn out (SWBO) and why do people get it? You'll learn a wide variety of techniques, tools and strategies for releasing stress, venting anger/frustration, cleansing your spirit, improving your business, and taking care of your precious self.

This workshop is for sex workers who enjoy their job, but want to ensure longevity, or want to make their job better. It's also for sex workers who want to transition from one kind of sex work to another, or possibly phase out of the industry. Its for any sex worker in any phase of her/his career. Cure or avoid SWBO and most likely, you'll ultimately make more $$$. It's not easy to admit you are burnt out, as our egos and incomes are invested in feeling good about our work. After this class you'll learn to see SWBO as an opportunity to grow.

# Sunday, 3/19, 9:30--5:30 pm -- Become an Extraordinary Lover - For Men Who Love Women

There is nothing more arousing than watching a woman you are making love to writhe and moan with delight. However, there are very few places to get practical, explicit, and straightforward advice about what turns women on. In this hands-on, one-day workshop, Dr. Danielle Harel joins with Celeste Hirschman, MA to teach you everything from the arts of romance and seduction to advanced pleasure techniques. They will teach you to read women's non-verbal cues, to elicit information about her secret sexual desires, and to keep her coming back for more. You will have the opportunity to practice different kinds of touch on a woman, gauge her responses and receive helpful feedback. The facilitators will cover how to give pleasure during a sexual encounter and explore special oral and anal techniques.

Sunday, March 19th, 9:30am to 5:30pm, at the Center for Sex and Culture, 398 11th St. For more information or to register email info@DareToEnjoy.com or call (415) 336-3258.

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.

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.

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.

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?"

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.
