Liberty Dollar No Longer at Liberty - The Raid on the Headquarters of the Liberty Dollar

Before the US revolution there were hundreds of local currencies in this country.

IT IS THE US DOLLAR that is a crime now; built on the
FRAUDULENT federal reserve (a private corporation)
and the ILLEGAL IRS (which has no authority to collect taxes)
ENFORCED by JACK-BOOTED THUGS who come in the night to destroy all that is American,
To attempt to prop up the facade that is the organized crime family: the BUSHco regime.
Please note I am a RED BLOODED AMERICAN. I am just pissed at BUSH!

Barium in Chemtrails Covered on Mainstream TV
Last spring, while driving along a road in Estes Park, Colorado, a
chemtrail from a low-flying jet had obvious black particles - small but
visible. 'Twas probably a fluke of exceptionally good lighting. I had a
camera in the car, my turn-off spot was appx a city block away in a 35 mph
zone, so I continued that extra block. Much to my chagrin, the particles
were no longer visible. I thought about that event as I watched the
recent newscast:
A local news station [preliminarily] confirms barium in chemtrails

accessible space, donations appreciated
Please join us for an evening of slides / videos, a legal update, and
letter writing to commemorate the SHAC7's one year anniversary in prison.
The SHAC7 are 6 activists and a corporation, Stop Huntingdon Animal
Cruelty USA Inc., that have been found guilty of multiple federal
felonies for their alleged role in simply campaigning to close down
the notorious animal testing lab, Huntingdon Life Sciences. The six
individuals are all currently in federal prison. They are not accused
of actually smashing windows, liberating animals or even attending
demonstrations, rather reporting on and encouraging others to engage
in legal demonstrations and supporting the ideology of direct action.
After being found guilty, they are beginning their appeal.
Unfortunately this appeal will be done from prison. During their stay
they need your support! Finances, spreading the word about their case,
books, letters or just a friendly 'hello'! It just takes a few minutes
to brighten the lives of political prisoners!
Let's let these individuals know they are not forgotten!

[sfbayoil] On the radio talking about globalization in the context of the recent oil spill
I will be on KPFA tomorrow (Saturday 11/17/2007) at 11am speaking about globalization in the context of the SF Bay oil spill.
Following a virtual town hall on the SF Bay Oil Spill (@ 10am), I will be one of several guests speaking about transitioning away from the oil economy. I intend to speak about the oil spill as a symptom of an unsustainable global economic system and that localization is a key organizing principal for the evolution of our economy and life on Earth.
Below are three ways to listen:

Pancake Playhouse Slumber Party this Sat
Pretty self-explanatory party we've got going on here this Sat (and probably one of the earliest BurningMan fundraisers ever). Our friends moved out of their sweet loft so there's quite a bit of space to rock out in. There will be dancing, pillow fighting, drinking, munchies, sleepover movies projected on the wall, and general merriment. No actual sleeping allowed! (we'll turn up the Mackie sub and wake your ass up) You will only be set back a whopping $5 so quit your jibber-jabber and get your ass down to Potrero Hill and bust some moves in those bunny slippers. Yeah, that's right. Wear your PJs, your sweats, your velour tracksuits/jumpsuits, terrycloth robes, silk robes, whatevs. We'll provide beer and wine - bring spirits and mixers if ye like.

Aspartame Toxicity Center,

Please foster Kittens for you local SPCA.
Help raise kittens until they are 8 weeks old or 2 lbs and can be put up for adoption.
It is important that they have humans for socialization and play! (lucky you)
this is the sweetest and most fun way to bring extra love into your life,
and into the kittens' lives. This program is FREE:
You attend their kitten foster program so you know how...
And then when they have a litter of kittens for you,
they send you home with kittens and all the cat food you need.

Beautiful Sattelite Picture of earth.

"Everything we shut our eyes to,
everything we run away from,
everything we deny, denigrate or despise,
serves to defeat us in the end.
What seems nasty, painful, evil, can become
a source of beauty, joy, and strength,
if faced with an open mind."
-- Henry Miller
(1891-1980) American writer

"Reserve your right to think,
for even to think wrongly
is better than not to think at all."
-- Hypatia of Alexandria
(355? - 415 CE), Female Mathematician, Astronomer, and Philosopher

"Of all the tyrannies on human kind
the worst is that which persecutes the mind."
-- John Dryden
(1631-1700) English Poet
