Oakland vigil,Tuesday, August 22, noon--Support Lt. Watada
 
You are invited to join the weekly vigil to call for an end to the  
U.S. war on the people of Iraq.
Tuesday, noon, Oakland Federal Building,
1301 Clay Street,
two short blocks from the 12th Street BART Station.

This vigil was begun in the spring of 1998, shortly after Madeline  
Albright toured the country in her unsuccessful attempt to gain  
support for a war against Iraq.
After a civil disobedience action to oppose the proposed attack,  
Ecumenical Peace Institute/CALC and Mustardseed Affinity Group  
decided to organize a weekly vigil to call for an end to the  
sanctions which were causing the deaths of 5,000 Iraqi children  
each month.
The vigil has continued since that time and other sponsors have  
joined in the effort.  The focus has changed, now calling for an  
immediate end to the war and the occupation.
Each week we hand out approximately three hundred flyers.  Usually  
they are different each week, unless upcoming events are being  
announced.

	Well, that's certainly been effective. Does the actual impact of any  
of this matter, or is it just a gesture for gesture's sake -- to make  
the participants forget (ignore) their powerlessness?

Radical Love & Relationship Workshop  	Tuesday, August 22 8:00 PM
Location:	 Good Vibrations  1620 Polk Street (at Sacramento Street) 
San Francisco, CA view map More Info:	 (415) 345-0400  
 8PM, $20, sliding scale, everyone welcome  http://www.goodvibes.com 

Workshop Description: 
At a time when our nation is determined to keep us on the warpath, what better time to raise our voices against intolerance, hatred, and violence? At a time when our government propels us into a new dark age of fascism, what better time to talk about radical love, or the right to love who we want, how we want, and as many as we want? Loving openly and freely in these times, whether you are straight or queer, is a brave political act. We have been conditioned by outdated social norms that limit our perceptions and shackle us to unhealthy cycles of dissatisfying relationships. Yet we also live in a time when we can choose our gender and redefine our sexual identities. Don’t we then have the right to decide what kind of relationship best suits our lifestyle? Declare yourself a revolutionary of the heart. Find out how you can expand your potential to love, transform your lifestyle, and together we can threaten the social forces of patriarchy! 

Wendy-O Matik is the author of Redefining Our Relationships: Guidelines for Responsible Open Relationships. As an educator, role model, and spokesperson for the polyamory community, Wendy has become a revolutionary activist of the heart. Since the release of her book, she has taught over sixty Radical Love & Relationship Workshops globally, excavating important social trends and reshaping the future of alternative relationship models for the 21st century. As an activist for social change, Wendy is pushing the boundaries on firmly rooted notions in mainstream society on relationships, love, gender, sexual equality, and sexual politics. She is available for educational and motivational discussions on the topic of alternative relationship models and responsible non-monogamy.

SOMA Creativity Center 81 Langton Street, Suite 13
(Folsom @ 7th/ 8th St.) San Francisco, CA 94103
(near folsom/7th across from Brainwash cafe)

The Urban Alliance for Sustainability (UAS), a project of Global Exchange, has launched a monthly playshop for the local green community. Each month we present a different theme which is tied into our newsletter, movie night and playshop.

We invite special guests from local organizations who provide inspiring solutions on the current subject.
 
PLAYSHOP SYNOPSIS

An inspiring afternoon of insight and inspiration about our relationship to our water and our watershed.  Ben Jordan, local permaculture designer, civil engineer, biofuel guru and water wizard will bring his knowledge and solutions to share in a polylog playshop where we can all learn from each other.

What can I do to conserve water?
Where does my water come from?  What's in it? Where does it go?
What would the sustainable urban watershed look like?
What about composting toilets?  What about roof rainwater catchment?
What about greenroofs and impervious surfaces?  What about water filters?

Bring all these questions and more for an adventure into a visionary salon where we will leave with a set of tools, tips, tricks, technologies and a vivid mental tableau for a shared common, clean, healthy, vibrant watershed!

)'( WATER for Burningman! Save your engine, save your transmission, your car is working hard enough.
Travel light uphill, then fill your 5gallon and 1 gallon water bottles at
DONNER Summit REST STOP, 20 Miles West of the CA/NV border.
Donner Summit rest stop is just before Donner Lake, which is before Truckee.
Donner Summit is right after Boreal Ridge going towards Reno on Highway 80.
There are several campground type faucets that you can park right next to!  )'( 

How many of us will have engine or transmission failure on our way to bliss...
Hopefully now we will all make it complete.

If you are going to give your car a tune up, do it now.

For sure change your oil. Check your engine coolant.
For sure Properly inflate your tires.
Check your Automatic Transmission fluid (ATF)

I travel with a quart of ATF and a quart of oil in easy reach in my car.

I always check my fluid levels (Oil/ATF/radiator)
Before I go uphill towards Santa Cruz or Tahoe,
or whenever I notice any loss of power.


Water from Brian:
If you are driving a truck, another GREAT way to do this is to get a food-grade 55 gallon drum and a "space blanket" before you leave.  Optional but highly recommended are either a stand for the drum and a petcock or a siphon pump.  

Fill it at a location like this (we used to wait until we go to the high desert, but anyway), making sure the drum is in a location that it can be moved later, since it will weigh about 350 pounds when full!  

Once you get to the playa, put the petcock in, put it on the stand, and put the blanket over it.  You will be AMAZED that the water is still relatively cold by the time of the burn because of basic thermodynamics:  heat travels to cold.  In the day, the heat is from the sun, which is reflected by the blanket.  At night, the playa gets cold and whatever heat that was collected by the drum escapes into the atmosphere as the night breeze gently blows over the drum.  The drum basically acts as a heat battery, and the blanket acts like a one-way valve!

Four people in an RV, with a drum like this and a full load of water on the chassis will have indoor showers for a week and water to spare.  Plus you save incredible amounts of fuel and waste from empty containers.  The drums are sturdy and are easy to reuse year after year, but if you don't want to store it, you can spread the love on the playa by giving it to one of the permanently mobile.  THEY WILL ALWAYS APPRECIATE YOU FOR THE GIFT!

 )'( GREENING THE BURN-- Taking the climate-changing heat out of the burning 
of the Man!

Burners Without Borders has collaborated with the brainiacs at 
CoolingMan (http://www.coolingman.org) to figure out the climate change 
impact of burning The Man, and how to "offset" that impact, making the 
burn climate change neutral.

CoolingMan estimates that the burning of The Man will generate 
approximately 100 tons of greenhouse gases (GHG). To more than 
neutralize these emissions, CoolingMan is seeking 110 tons of GHG offsets.

Offsets come in variety of ways. You can plant a tree, which is good for 
one ton, or buy a ton's worth by investing in renewable energy projects, 
like wind and solar. Buying a ton is anywhere from $5 to $10, and we're 
estimating high so we can make sure we're able to meet our goal.

Cool it forward by going to http://www.coolingman.com to help us 
completely offset the impact of the burn before the start of Burning Man 
2006--there you can also figure out your theme camp's impact, and offset 
that as well. It's easy, cheap, and makes a huge difference. Be sure to 
report your participation to CoolingMan so they can track and then

 )'( 2006 LNT TOUR OF THE CITY  )'( 

Leave No Trace Tour of the City wants YOU!

Each year we enjoy the fruits of a clean, beautiful, well organized City
and come up with better ways to manage our trash and play, eat, and
sleep in comfortable camps. We can be proud of the fact that Burning Man
is one of the largest Leave No Trace events in the country. We create a
temporary City in the desert, then help it disappear.

Now in its fifth year, the Leave No Trace Tour of the City features camp
showers, kitchens, trash management, grey water systems, good neighbors,
and repurposed structures. Model camps provide working examples for
those of us looking for ways to camp smarter at Burning Man.

A number of camps are returning to Burning Man with the same basic
structure or materials used in previous years. High traffic camps are
finding ways to minimize imported trash by planning ahead. Grey water is
being managed with an increasing number of solutions.

Model  camps can feature any practice or technology. Theme camps of all
sizes and types are encouraged to join and need only be a registered
theme camp, subscribe to all seven principles of Leave No Trace, submit
their LNT Plan, and be willing to show their camp to interested
participants during the Burning Man event. The Tour is self-guided.
Model camps are featured on a large informational map in the Earth
Guardians Pavilion and are also eligible to win a coveted Camp of the
Day award.

The Camp of the Day contest, a separate LNT opportunity open to any
registered theme camp, awards 2 tickets to next year's event. Those
camps that best exemplify Leave No Trace will win. Theme camps can enter
the contest before or during the event.

Information on LNT at Burning Man can be found at
http://www.burningman.com/on_the_playa/environment_concerns/earth_guard_tips.html.

  If your theme camp would like to be part of this year's LNT Tour of the
City, please contact Earth Guardians at lntcamps(at)comcast(dot)net. )'( 



 )'( LNT Tour of the City: Camps and now we got art
Hi there Greenies
This is a banner year for Leave No Trace and I am happy to share that many of the camps and art installations featured in the Earth Guardians LNT Tour will also reduce their impact on the earth.  This year our application asked camps if there was anything specially Green about them. There were a few openly Green ones and a Teal camp.  
After 5 years featuring model theme camps, we’re now excited to have a sister LNT Tour of art. Five art installations volunteered to be our first models.
These are beautiful and engaging pieces that also reflect the LNT principles. They are simple and complex, low tech and high tech, recycled, renewable and fossil. Some claim zero impact, others will purchase carbon offsets. They all share a commitment to Leave No Trace on the playa and in many ways reflect Green values.
If you know of other theme camps that shine LNT, please invite them enter our Camp of the Day contest, which awards recognition and rewards to the camps that best exemplify LNT.  
Here’s list of theme camps and art you can visit to see working examples of Leave No Trace practices. The Tour is self guided so you can choose the ones to
visit. There will be display maps and information at the Earth Guardians Pavilion.

# Sep 6, 7pm San Rafael
Last year, the Bay Area responded with open arms to the devastation 
caused by Hurricane Katrina by taking into their homes the 
bewildered dogs and cats who had been abandoned and left to suffer 
the wrath of the storm alone. In observance of the one-year 
anniversary of Hurricane Katrina, the Marin Humane Society and In 
Defense of Animals present a special one-time screening of Dark 
Water Rising: The Truth About Hurricane Katrina Animal Rescues, 
Wednesday, September 6, 7pm, at the Smith Rafael Film Center (1118 
4th St., San Rafael). Award-winning documentary film director Mike 
Shiley will make a personal appearance to introduce his new film and 
answer questions, and Captain Cindy Machado of the Marin Humane 
Society will present information about disaster preparedness for 
people with pets. A $10 suggested donation will benefit animals in 
need.

THERE IS ALSO A SF EVENT ON AUGUST 30th AT THE ROXIE THEATER.

More than 2,500 of the four-legged Katrina survivors were brought to 
the Bay Area for care prior to being reunited with their families or 
placed in new, loving homes. They were the lucky ones — more than 
35,000 companion animals perished in New Orleans due to disaster 
policies that didn't take pets into account. Dark Water Rising 
introduces us to the courageous people who traveled to New Orleans 
from around the country and risked their own lives to rescue trapped 
and starving animals. The film also begs the question: How can we 
protect our pets if something like this happens in the Bay Area? 

Haunted by his memories of the dead, frightened and emaciated 
animals he saw while filming in New Orleans, Shiley says, "It's my 
deepest hope that this film motivates people to put pressure on 
Congress to pass the PETS Act so that never again will anyone be 
forced to evacuate without their pets."

The roles MHS and IDA played in the aftermath of the hurricanes
The Marin Humane Society was centrally involved with pet rescue 
efforts in the aftermath of the hurricanes last fall. Leading the 
first-ever pet airlifts to transport animals out of the disaster 
region, 2,500 rescued dogs and cats were flown to the Bay Area as 
part of MHS' Operation Orphans of the Storm. Animal shelters and 
rescue organizations around the Bay cared for these animals until 
they could be reunited or rehomed.

"I will never forget the looks of relief and gratitude in the eyes 
of the dogs and cats as they emerged from their airplane crates into 
the arms of volunteers waiting to care for them," says Diane 
Allevato, executive director, Marin Humane Society. "We were happy 
to help these animals, but they deserved much better — they deserved 
to be evacuated with their families."

In Defense of Animals also played a key role in disaster relief 
efforts for animals, sending volunteers to the hurricane-stricken 
area to rescue animals and transport them to regional shelters with 
the ability to care for them. IDA's Project Hope volunteers are 
still involved in transporting animals out of the affected areas.

"This powerful film of bravery and compassion documents the courage 
and dedication of caring people to right the wrongs of others," says 
Elliot Katz, DVM, president, In Defense of Animals. "Viewing it made 
me more determined than ever to advocate for disaster relief and 
preparation. I hope that the harsh lessons we've learned from this 
disaster have not been in vain and that our national leaders will 
commit to animal evacuation plans being part of all future disaster 
planning around the country."

Tickets for the screening of Dark Water Rising will be sold at the 
door beginning at 6pm. Space is limited. For further information, 
please call In Defense of Animals at (415) 388-9641 or the Marin 
Humane Society at (415) 506-6256.

Please note:
Filmmaker Mike Shiley is available for interviews.

# September  8 - 21 Announcing Camp Democracy
Announcing Camp Democracy
Cindy Sheehan to Move Camp to National Mall
Cindy Sheehan and activists in the growing peace movement plan to 
move Camp Casey to the National Mall in Washington, D.C., September 
8 - 21. The camp on the Mall will carry the name Camp Democracy at 
Fort Fed Up. Organizers intend the camp to bring together peace 
activists with activists for social justice, united in demanding a 
shift of public resources from war to the needs of people. 
Participants will lobby Congress to end all funding of the 
occupation of Iraq, and will demand that Congress hold the Bush 
Administration accountable for the falsehoods that launched the war 
and the abuses of power here at home that have accompanied it. Camp 
Democracy is launching an outreach effort to include organizations 
in the planning of the camp's activities, which are all in the 
initial stages. Organizations already on board are listed on the 
website:
http://campdemocracy.org
Participating organizations and guest experts and celebrities will 
provide workshops and training sessions on a wide range of issues, 
as well as on communications, voter registration, nonviolent civil 
disobedience, lobbying, organizing, media production, and 
performance arts. Congress Members and congressional candidates will 
take part. Local elected officials will instruct attendees on 
participation in local government. Musicians will perform concerts. 
New films will be shown on a large screen. Participants will acquire 
useful skills while demanding fundamental change. 
Individuals can sign up and plan to come:
http://campdemocracy.org/user/2
And volunteer to help:
http://campdemocracy.org/about
Organizations, large and small, can sign up to participate:
http://campdemocracy.org/node/3
Organizations, trainers, speakers, educators, and performers should 
propose activities that they believe would benefit thousands of 
citizens who want to work for change:
http://campdemocracy.org/node/4 
Internet activists, and anyone with a blog or a website, can help by 
posting this information and link to the website using this link:

http://campdemocracy.org/

A camp for peace, democracy, and the restoration of the rule of law. 
Camp Casey will move from Crawford, Texas, to Washington, D.C., to 
create a larger camp focused not only on ending the war but also on 
righting injustices here at home and on holding accountable the Bush 
Administration and Congress. Tents will provide activist activities, 
trainings, workshops, and entertainment on these themes: War/ Peace/ 
Nonviolence | The Constitution/ Accountability/ Censure/ Impeachment 
| Poverty/ Katrina/ Immigration/ Labor | Environment/ Health Care/

EVERYONE THAT WOULD JOIN WITH US ALL OVER THE COUNTRY......

DID NOT BUY ANYTHING....NOT ONE PENNY SPENT ON THAT DAY... 

maybe the message would hit home faster to the Bankers and Government. 
Does anyone want to run some figures to see how much the Corporations would lose in profits for our one day of standing? Would it take more than one day to express our choice?

# September 11-12th, 2006- 9/11 Film Festival

Premiere of new film of David Ray Griffin- "9/11 the Myth and the Reality"
September 11, 2006, 6:30 pm
Grand Lake Theater
3200 Grand Lake Avenue
Oakland, California

Doors open at 6:00 each night, trailers, previews and shorts start at
6:30, film premieres start at 7:00. Q & A / discussion with the
filmmakers follows each night.

This will be the world film premiere of David Ray Griffin's talk given
at the Grand Lake Theater March 30, 2006 to a sold out audience.
Griffin's presentation was videotaped with six cameras, and 9/11
filmmaker Ken Jenkins has illustrated the film with hundreds of
graphics and clips. This video will likely become not only the
definitive Griffin DVD, but will likely serve as the Loose Change for
the older generations. Griffin condensed the highlights of his first
two books on 9/11 into a dynamic presentation. A slightly shorter
version of the same talk was given April 3rd at the prestigious
Commonwealth Club in San Francisco, and much of the footage in the
film is from that location. The premiere will be followed by a
question and answer session with filmmaker and 9/11 activist Ken
Jenkins

This Sept 11, 2006 a new era will dawn on America. On that day the 
people will convene and move through the legal recourse needed to 
redress the government. At no other time in our nations history has so 
important a moment drawn near. As the war of lies passes the $500 
Billion debt mark and 3000 US dead along with 100,000's in the nation 
we "saved", as freedom and liberty has been sold out to a federal 
police force, as all Americans have been affected by corporate and 
limited liability governments and municipal codes, time has come for 
the change

California Redwoods Being Cut Along Russian River NOW
     Did you see in the LA Times this weekend that the Bohemian Club in
Monte Rio is cutting down their old growth redwoods along the
Russian River. Apparently they have alot of redwoods along the
river and up the hills just inland from Monte Rio. They are already
cutting them down and causing clearcuts along the trails.
     I tried to drive into the Bohemian Grove about 2 or 3 years ago,
but they have many threatening signs along their private road so
I eventually turned back. Did not see any people.

COPS on the Playa - READ THIS!! 

undercover cops CAN and WILL lie to protect their identity...be VERY 
paranoid!! 

http://www.flexyourrights.org/frequently_asked_questions

you are NOT allowed to do ANYTHING illegal on the Playa. would you do 
it on the streets of your own town - out in the open? (Hollywood and 
Amsterdam not included) the Playa is a city - in America. 

*don't forget this* 

if you do so much as light up (even in the middle of the open playa - 
they use nightscopes now - NOT kidding) or you serve someone who is 
UNDERAGE alcohol...you are running the risk of being ticketed. 

in order for you to stay at the event, you'll have to pay the ticket 
at the makeshift jail next to the Airport where they fingerprint AND 
photograph you. if you cannot pay or you don't have a friend who 
will, you have to leave the Playa. NO EXCEPTIONS. 

also, you need to carry your IDENTIFICATION on your person at ALL 
times. imagine this (my friend had this happen): you get ticketed but 
they need your ID. well, you've got handcuffs on and can't open your 
cardoor to get your I.D. out of the glove compartment. also, they're 
not really sure...if they took the cuffs off...would you freak out or 
run away? well, of course, the law is MORE than happy to help out. 

they open your glove compartment and find a big bag of mushrooms!! oh 
shit. now you have a ticket for possession AND ALSO for intent to 
distribute. now you're super fucked!! if only you would have used 
your head. 

sooo...if ANYONE asks you for drugs on the Playa...take a step back 
and at the top of your lungs yell, "HEY EVERYONE...this person is 
either STUPID or he's a NARC. stay away from him - he just asked me 
for drugs!!" if they're just stupid - they will learn a lesson. if 
it's a NARC - at least people know to avoid them in the area or they 
might be watched by this person. even TRADING drugs is illegal...FYI. 

the cops DO serve a purpose on the Playa, they can save your ass. 
they caught a rapist last year who fled into a nearby camp. they keep 
the peace and they follow the rules - THEY ARE JUST DOING THEIR JOBS. 
be nice to them. 

shut your RV door - they have to ask permission to enter. zip your 
tent up - same rule applies. if they smell marijuana, they have 
probable cause to enter without your permission, although it's more 
difficult to do as they need to get a warrant. you don't have to let 
them in without one. 

you have the right to resist a search politely. you can say, "i'm 
sorry but i never consent to any searches." whether or not you have 
anything on your person, it's your right to say NO. they can get a 
warrant and make you consent to a search, but it takes alot of time 
and if you're nice to them, they'll probably leave you alone. 

if your friend gets hassled, keep your mouth shut. don't interfere 
because you can get ticketed for that, too. if you're caught with 
something, don't say anything to incriminate yourself. ask for a 
lawyer if you think you might need one. tickets aren't too horribly 
expensive - $250 to $550 unless they arrest you, then it's more 
because there's usually bail involved and for that they'll take you 
into Reno for the night. 

LISTEN UP PEOPLE - they drive Art Cars, for chrissakes!! they're Hot 
Little Burner Chicks and they're dressed up in costumes. they've been 
doing this FOR YEARS - and they probably have better costumes than 
YOU do. 

don't be a fucking idiot. don't party with people you don't already 
know. they can befriend you, get some good info from you and arrest 
you hours later. they can do drugs with you legally, and send the 
cops to cuff you when you part company. they CAN and they WILL. don't 
think you can "get away with it" because they're everywhere. 

when you see them, say HI. if you have a BM trinket that you think 
they might like (they all want trinkets from BM to give their friends 
- it's a privilege to work at BM ;o) offer them one. they might offer 
you a cool BLM blinky-pin. don't be a dick because you'll make it 
worse for the rest of us. use your head, be very POLITE when you see 
them, and remember they're just doing their jobs...you might make it 
easier for the rest of us. 

if they think of us more as humans instead of "Burners" they might 
get a little lazy and not be so gung-ho about ticketing us. it can't 
hurt. be safe!!


how do people carry an ID when they're naked? 

**LISTEN UP PEOPLE - they drive Art Cars, for chrissakes!! they're Hot 
Little Burner Chicks and they're dressed up in costumes. they've been 
doing this FOR YEARS - and they probably have better costumes than 
YOU do. ** 

can you give me a solid example of this, or is it heresay? 

in my seven years on the playa i've had undecover cops strut into our camp asking for "the green goodness", but i've never seen a cop driving an art car. art cars have to be registered with the Department of Mutant Vehicles. this would mean that the BM org is cooperating with law enforcement on a different level than most burners oare used to. 

but yes simmer, you are right. don't be a fool, use common sense. don't be like the kids from ohio i saw in the will call parking area a few years ago with a great big bong on the hood of their car. 

sometimes it's better to be paranoid.

Do you have trees in your yard?        Protect the soil!
http://www.indybay.org/newsitems/2006/08/21/18299074.php

Ask a nursery for care tips or google your tree.
Find out how to care for it.  Redwoods like Iron, Acid, Mineral Soil, Nitrogen and Water!
Iron: carot compost, iron scrap metal, rusty nails, bolts etc.  But not toxic galvanized nails.
Acid: coffee grounds    or    Some fancy water filters make acid water and alkali water.
Drink the alkali water and pour the acid water on your Redwoods, Doug Firs,
Rhodedendrons, Hydrangeas, etc. google acid loving plants.
Mineral Soil: sand, chalky sand bags, crushed rock, etc. sprinkle all around.
Nitrogen: compost, manure, poo, etc.
Water: there is no such thing as too much water for a Redwood, so long as the soil can breathe.
On top of the compost you lay around the tree, apply a thick cover of mulch, or wood chips.
Wood chips can be dumped in your driveway for free anytime you see one of those chipper shredder trucks.
(Saves them a trip to the dump!) Just be sure they did not remove the tree because of bugs. Ask them!
Look at the wood they cut.  Be sure there are no pinholes in the bark from boring beetles, termites, etc.
Wood chips can be piled as high as you like. But NOT near the tree trunk of some trees. Beware fungus, etc.
If you pile woodchips high enough, catching all the winter rain, you do not have to water in the summer.
Sound like a good idea? this is how forests do it, 
and forests don't use pipes, artificial irrigation, or pay a water bill.
Forests are smart!
Wood chips keep the sun from drying the soil.
Wood chips catch and hold rainwater, slowly releasing it to the roots.
Wood chips eventually break down / decompose, becoming soil!
Wood chips are fun!

Oak trees do NOT like acid. Do not water the base of an Oak. Do not cover the base of an Oak.
Native Americans would apply volcanic ash to Oak trunks and soil.
You too can apply minerals / whitewash your trees! All trees like minerals.
http://suddenoaklife.org explains how!  Dr Lee Klinger of Santa Cruz whitewashes trees with
http://azomite.com Azomite (60 minerals) to which he adds Calcium, Bentonite, and Lime.
Mineals absorbed by bark and root strenghthen the tree, boosting tree immunity.
Opportunists such as phytophthora ramorum (Sudden Oak Death fungus), bugs, etc. rely on weak trees.

Do not park or drive cars under the drip line of a tree.
The drip line of a tree is the shadow the tree casts if the sun is directly overhead.
The drip line of a tree is the cirlce in which water drops would fall from the tips of the longest branches.
The drip line of a tree maps closely to the root line of a tree.
Protect this soil: do not allow trucks or heavy equipment to compact this precious earth.
Do not pave, build, trench or cut into the soil beneath a tree. (It might fall over if you kill roots.)

Hey! 
I have a plan for the revolution. In the spirit of the peaceful revolution, a movement which encourages people to write on the currency must be started. Can you imagine if every American who understood our situation wrote 'impeach' in bold letters across some dollar bills. Soon, our currency would flow black with the permanent markers of dissent and disgust. 
Of course, this is illegal, but so is this entire sham administration. What do you think?

"You can't fight city hall." "Death and taxes." "Don't talk about politics or religion." This is all the equivalent of enemy propaganda, rolling across the picket line. "Lay down, GI! Lay down, GI!". We saw it all through the 20th Century. And now on the 21st Century, it's time to stand up and realize, that we should NOT allow ourselves to be crammed into this rat maze. We should not SUBMIT to dehumanization. I don't know about you, but I'm concerned with what's happening in this world. I'm concerned with the structure. I'm concerned with the systems of control. Those that control my life, and those that seek to control it EVEN MORE! I want FREEDOM! That's what I want, and that's what YOU should want! It's up to each and every one of us to turn loose of just some of the greed, the hatred, the envy, and yes, the insecurities, because that is the central mode of control, make us feel pathetic, small, so we'll willingly give up our sovereignty, our liberty, our destiny. We have GOT to realize we're being conditioned on a mass scale. Start challenging this corporate slave state! The 21st Century's gonna be a new century! Not the century of slavery, not the century of lies and issues of no significance, of classism and statism, and all the rest of the modes of control... it's gonna be the age of humankind, standing up for something PURE and something RIGHT! What a bunch of garbage, liberal, Democratic, conservative, Republican, it's all there to control you, two sides of the same coin! Two management teams, bidding for control of the CEO job of Slavery Incorporated! The TRUTH is out there in front of you, but they lay out this buffet of LIES! I'm SICK of it, and I'M NOT GONNA TAKE A BITE OUT OF IT! DO YA GOT ME? Resistance is NOT futile, we're gonna win this thing, humankind is too good, WE'RE NOT A BUNCH OF UNDERACHIEVERS, WE'RE GONNA STAND UP, AND WE'RE GONNA BE HUMAN BEINGS! WE'RE GONNA GET FIRED UP ABOUT THE REAL THINGS, THE THINGS THAT MATTER - CREATIVITY, AND THE *DYNAMIC* *HUMAN* *SPIRIT* THAT REFUSES TO *SUBMIT*! WELL THAT'S IT, that's all I've got to say. It's in your court now.
