Join me, Ione U. People, Mya Cash, and other glamourous filthy rich personages in the March on Sunday, February 16. Our goal is to point out how your opposition to the Billionaires for Bush’s War hurts ME, Ione U. People, and could possibly shave a few million from my snotty spoiled selfish childrens’ trust funds. After all, if the economy becomes any more unstable, I shall certainly run out of tax havens! After all, patriotism and paying taxes is for the little people.

Billionaires for Bush’s War!

Join me, Ione U. People, Mya Cash, and other glamourous filthy rich personages in the March on Sunday, February 16. Our goal is to point out how your opposition to the Billionaires for Bush’s War hurts ME, Ione U. People, and could possibly shave a few million from my snotty spoiled selfish childrens’ trust funds. If the economy becomes any more unstable, I shall certainly run out of tax havens! After all, patriotism and paying taxes is for the little people. If this nice little war in Iraq stabilizes oil prices, no social justice for you, silly k-nighits.

If you are interested in joining the Billionaires contingent, email debocracylive [at] yahoo.com. Mya Cash, aka Jennifer Pozner of United for a Fair Economy in New York City, will be making a special appearance and accompany us throughout the day. Mya, I mean Jennifer, says that we need at least 7 people for an effective Billionaire presence. Formal attire of some sort is important.

For an opportunity to protest and make people smile while you do it, join us. For more information about the Billionaires, go to http://www.billionairesforbushorgore.com. Great ideas for signs and chants there too!

Mya's call:

Hey Lisa and friends -

If you know ANYONE in San Fran who would be interested in performing political street theater with me, I'd love it if you'd tell them about the Billionaires for Bush's War (see call to action below). The group always goes over really well, diffuses tension with cops, lightens protestors' moods, and is an effective messaging tool with media. I will not have access to this email for a few days, but will read it all when I get into San Fran on Wed. If wealthy elites are interested in drowning out the voices of dissent on Sunday, please let them know they have a partner-in-corporate-crime at the ready.

Cheers,

Mya Cash (reminding you, as always, that the nightly news is brought to you by MYa cash... not yours.)

BILLIONAIRES FOR BUSH'S WAR: CALL TO ACTION:

TELL THE WORLD THAT THIS WAR IS BEING FOUGHT IN OUR NAMES! MORE BLOOD FOR OIL!

Hello darlings,

My name is Mya Cash, I am a broadcasting billionaire, and a leader of the NYC Billionaires for Bush's War. I will be traveling to San Francisco for a very lucrative merger deal this weekend, and would like to organize a counter-protest contingent of corporate warmongers to squash dissent in the streets of California. Here are some suggestions:

-- Below (and attached in a nicely-formatted version) are some songs that you can sing, that Emily WIlson and I wrote on the bus to DC in October, and that went over incredibly well. If you wish, print them out in large enough numbers that passersby can join in.

-- In my experience over the last few years, Billionaires actions tend to work best with at least 4 or 5, and up to about 25 - 35, very engaged people; and at least 2 or 3 people should be willing to be loud, in-your-face and obnoxious about chants, singing, slogans, talking with media and cops, etc. Do outreach, post your call to action to IndyMedia, to Code Pink, UnitedForPeace and NION calendars, to all the local listservs, etc.

-- Props you should try to bring, if you can:

a. posters that make a direct (short & sweet, and funny if possible) link to Bush, war and $ -- see slogans below

b. the B4B banner if anyone still has one,

c. lots and lots of fake cash ("the better to bribe police with, my dear") ,

d. song sheets and slogan sheets in numbers large enough for whomever billionaires you have with you, and preferably more for passersby

e. top hats, tiaras, gaudy jewelery, feather boas, fur coats, cash, etc.

f. name tags, so you can display your wealthy pedigree to protesters and press

Have fun, and take lots of prisoners,

Yours in domination,

Mya Cash (as always, reminding you that the nightly news is brought to you by Mya cash... not yours.)

Some songs and chants attached, and cut& pasted. Here they are.

United for war,

Mya Cash

Chants and sign slogans broadcasting our wealthy domination to all anti-war activists in DC on Oct. 26 and other actions since have included:

"Call & response: Whose streets? Our streets!

Whose bombs? Our bombs!

Whose tanks? Our tanks!

Whose SUVs? Our SUVs!

Whose energy contracts? Our energy contracts!

Whose Congress? Our Congress!

Whose big penile monument? Our big penile monument! (when we passed the Washington monument)

Whose war? OUR WAR!"





"United we SPEND –your money

United we SHRED – your money

United we BOMB – with your money

In order to MAKE – our money!"

"Stop whining and start bombing!"

"1-2-3-4, we make profits off of war!

5-6-7-8, being rich is really great!"

"Atta boy, Dubya – Billionaires love ‘ya!

Thanks, Condi Rice, for being so nice!"

"Gimme an M! Gimme an O! Gimme an N! Gimme an E! Gimme a Y!

What’s that spell? Money! What’s that spell? MONEY!

Why are we going to war? MONEY!

Why do we make when we bomb Iraq? MONEY!

Who’se gonna die? (billionaires pause, shrug, then scream) WHO CARES?"

"Ain’t no power like military power ‘cause military power won’t stop! [ka-ching!]"

"We love Bush! We love Dick!"

"Bomb Iraq! Pay us back! "


"Big Oil’s united – you people ain’t invited! Go home!"


"Forget Halliburton! Cheney’s not hurtin’ –

Pay no attention to our man behind the curtain!"


and here's one from the Halloween Parade with mobilize-ny:

"We want oil! We Want gas! Watch out world, we'll KICK YOUR ASS!"



these were slogans:



The World Is Our Gas Station

Military Tribunals are for Poor Countries' Leaders"

Billionaires for Bush's War: Providing Quality Weapons since Desert Storm

Smart Bombs = Smart Profits!

THE BILLIONAIRE SHUFFLE ( To the tune of The Hokey Pokey)
By Mya Cash and Richard Anyou, NYC Billionaires for Bush’s War (aka, Jennifer L. Pozner and Emily Wilson)
You send some ground troops in,

and then you let them loose.

You send some ground troops in

and you shake your rich caboose.

You do the corporate shuffle

as the bombs begin to fall.

It’s all about the oil! Hey!

We make smart bombs and tanks.

We make mini-nukes, too.

We make cluster bombs and ammo,

and we’ll sell it all to you.

We do the corporate shuffle

as the bombs begin to fall.

It’s all about the oil! Hey!

We bought Bush and Dick.

We bought Condi, too.

We’ve got Congress in our pockets

and we tell ‘em what to do.

We do the corporate shuffle

as the bombs begin to fall.

It’s all about the oil! Hey!

YOU… put… your… taxes in.

You watch your paycheck shrink.

You do some patriotic shopping,

but be careful not to think.

You do the corporate shuffle

as the bombs begin to fall.

It’s all about the oil! Hey!

THE ITCHING TO STRIKE RAG
Sung to the tune of The Fixing To Die Rag, by Country Joe & the Fish
By Mya Cash and Richard Anyou, NYC Billionaires for Bush’s War (aka, Jennifer L. Pozner and Emily Wilson)
Come on all you rich white men

Uncle Sam needs your weapons again

We’ve got ourselves in a wonderful fight

With any luck we’ll start bombing tonight

So, cook all your books

And sell all your guns

We’re gonna have a whole lotta fun.

CHORUS:

And it’s 1, 2, 3 –

We know what we’re fighting for

A rise in our Ratheon stocks

Each time that we strike Iraq

And it’s 5, 6, 7

No need to investigate

The media don’t wonder why

Too bad – they’re all gonna die!

Come on all you CEOs,

Let’s all toast our corporate ‘hos

Dubya’s waitin’ for us to say when

And Uncle Sam’s pumpin’ oil again
So, Army boys:

Get ready to go!

We’re gonna make a whole lotta dough!



CHORUS: And it’s 1, 2, 3, we know what we’re fighting for…
