Building an informed Cascadian community (part 1)
PLEASE share these videos with neighbours, co-workers, family, friends and others. Stop being traumatized by our own bitchin about the Bank Heist (Bailout) or about the coming third fraudulent election or that Obama is actually a conservative corporate mouth piece. We need to build a network of communities willing to support each other in the coming time of economic collapse and attempts at martial law. So tonight .. these weekend invite your friends and family to watch these movies in the safety of your own home. Have a picnic or potluck. Have a party but have an informative and awakening time with friends. And remember laughter dismisses the demons of fear and shared laughter and insights brings the group to a new paradigm. Ideally a paradigm of freedom

Once a great American president who lived in an era of great fascist threat told the people "The only thing to fear is fear itself." It is time we dismiss our demons of doubt and tell these demons of fear and self doubt they are released from our collective imaginations.

Stephen Harper re-elected in Canada.. So BC Cascadians are you ready yet? Free Cascadia!
Since the BC indies all seem dead where to Cascadians of the North Central go for their indy daily dose?

I guess the British Columbians would just rather silently go the way the US did. Eventually we will all be together anyway I guess under a North American Union (NAU) flag and currency with the ruling corporatist elite in charge of our indebted asses.

Of course there is an alternative..... Cascadia! A Bioregional Cooperative Commonwealth of Cascadia! Keeping universal healthcare for all, tariffs on out of bioregion duplicate products, universal education for all, stewardship of the commons, community over profit and so forth.

Localize, Democratize

Federal Government Border Patrol Checkpoints on Olympic Peninsula
I think people at these Federal Government Border Patrol Checkpoints,
should be forced to produce a valid Federal Income Tax Return from the previous year.
If you can not produce this document (FEDERAL INCOME TAX FROM PREVIOUS YEAR)
you should be arrested and put in an internment camp and forced to work for the Federal Government.
(We could make little IRS Returns like drivers licenses, and everyone has to carry one! )
Then; if your not carrying your Federal Income tax papers, you get arrested and sent into the internment camp; a run down foreclosed home you will have to do a lot of work on, and have two jobs to pay for.
And then if you do not pay the Federal Government your money, they take it away from you and you start over!

New Study Details Massive Voter Roll Purges Underway in At Least 19 States
Why vote? Well I do not like Obama or McCain. I am a McKinney yeti myelf or Kucinich when he was in.

I personally do not think voting matters in this coming election and think its a waste of time to vote, but you should vote. not because your vote may bring a "better of two lesser evils", but so it can be counted as one of the stolen votes. In my humble yeti opinion what is more important than voting is being a poll watcher and a poll worker. So we can document and getthe word out to the world and the rest of the citizenry that we live in a Fascist system.

Following Monday's rejection in the House, the Senate plans to vote today on the $700 billion bailout of Wall Street.

We get an update from Washington insider and former Senate Banking Committee chief economist Robert Johnson and speak to veteran journalist William Greider of The Nation magazine.

As one friend said a few months ago "this is just a bump in the economic road" What can I say, but I think her bump is a sink hole at best. I hope now people will finally wake up that we NEED to Localize of Cascadian economy; Democratize our workplaces and provide the basic human rights required in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. But I doubt people will heed my warnings still as they look for saviour kings and quick solutions to hope that their consumer life styles return.
