Who wants to Audit the FEDERAL RESERVE
Activist_List-subscribe [at]

Believe it or not, NOBODY - not even the IRS can have the Federal Reserve audited. That is how illegal the Federal Reserve is. It is a private bank that does not pay tax but on the contrary is the taxing authority in the USA. It simply means that the USA is owned and operated by the Federal Reserve.
So - who wants to audit the Federal Reserve? Everybody except all corrupt elected officials of the USA.
When and if ever we get rid of the Federal Reserve, we do not have to pay them a cent because how they got their start was illegal. Why? Because there's no way you can sell the USA to anybody without nobody knowing it. NOT even the US President who sold it did not know he was selling it. That was how drunk and drugged up people of Congress were at that time. Why? Because there was a time when drugs was not illegal. It was practically everywhere. It was in cough syrups, coca cola, etc

FlavorTripping with Miracle Fruit - San Francisco, Aug 4th 2008
Take your palate on a journey of altered experiences with the mysterious miracle fruit.
$25 - includes a berry and a buffet of regular everyday food items that we have curated to showcase the transformative power of the fruit. Everything from lemons, to cheeses to beer to other things you may not expect.
A berry should give you a trip of one to two hours. How:
Miracle Fruit (Sideroxylon dulcificum) a cranberry-sized West African berry that that numbs your sour and bitter tastebuds for a couple of hours after eating it. That means that everything that used to taste sour now tastes sweet. Fo' reals. It's like a candy Willy Wonka would have invented - after eating one stout beers taste like chocolate milkshakes, grapefruits taste like pixie sticks, cheeses taste like frosting, it will make even the crappiest tequila taste like lemonade (and strangely enough, it will make all wine taste like Manischewitz). Who:
Organized by Mustache Commander and Supreme Commander of the Shadow Government, and leaders of watergun assassins throughout the world.
All the tastes, none of the waste:
This will be a zero waste event. Everything will be recycled and/or composted at the end of the event.

World's First Community Algae Lab Opening @ The Shipyard, Sunday, August 10th
come and experience the art and grunge of the berkeley shipyard, where artists come to make metal art and other fascinating projects, support the hard work of some of the bay area's finest algae lovers, and hear more about why algae are better than pants! . . . read on for more details. xox amanda
by the way, if you didn't already guess, this is my partner, aaron's project.
ps: guess who's making the superfood spirulina scooby snacks? ; )
Why are algae interesting?
Because they eat greenhouse gases
and wastewater to create, in very little space,
fuel, fertilizer, and extremely nutritious food --
all without using valuable farmland
and little or no fresh water.
They are a truly green crop for a sustainable future.
We are the Shipyard algae lab community.
We have created the world's first community algae lab --
for development of open source, DIY-oriented algae technology,
to facilitate the co-operative pursuit of this new form of agriculture --
and we invite *you*
to come see it, *celebrate*
with us, rub shoulders
with hard-working algae-istas,
and sign up for one of our upcoming workshops!
Algae-powered super-snacks will be served ...
come feel the algae love ...

Performing at this event will be San Francisco-based artists: Alorahset, Vow3l Movement, Megs and DJ dr booty (see bios below).

WHERE: The House of Shields Saloon
39 New Montgomery St. San Francisco, CA.
map here:
WHEN: July 31, 8pm-Midnight: Closing out with da FUNK!
COST: $15-20 Donation at the door.
*Thank you to Sellers Market and the House of Shields for donating hors d'oeuvres.
*BWB T-shirts and Hoodies will be available.
This is a great opportunity to show your support for this relentlessly creative community and have a good time while you do it. If you can't make it, please consider giving a donation online at under the 'Donate' link.
What are we celebrating???
August 15, 2008 marks the one year anniversary of an 8.0 earthquake that devastated the Pisco region of Peru and is also the final day of Burners Without Borders' incredibly successful nine-month reconstruction program in this area. The many schools that are being built, the opportunities BWB has created for Peruvians to build permanent homes, and the hundreds of other projects volunteers have spearheaded have been realized because of the over 300 selfless volunteers who have graciously donated their time and energy to this amazing reconstruction effort.
But, none of this would have been possible without the support of YOU, the larger community, who has contributed over $80,000 thus far to BWB's reconstruction efforts in Peru. Visit to see what we've been up to and how your valuable contribution has been put to use. Be sure to check out the BWB Blog to read about our projects through the words of the volunteers who have worked on them.
