A Little DC-in-the-Fall IMF Protest Info

Hello, my name is Horst Kohler. I am the Managing Director of the International Monetary Fund. Today, I would like to take full advantage of this website to extend a very warm invitation to all social activists worldwide.
A Little DC-in-the-Fall IMF Protest Info
A Little DC-in-the-Fall IMF Protest Info
This September 28th through October 4th, our organization will be meeting at our headquarters in Washington D.C. to discuss how to better control the world and enslave third world populations. We would be happy if all of you concerned with our policies were to come and disrupt our meetings. We get pretty bored sitting around in a conference room full of people like myself! Sometimes it adds a little spice to our agenda if we have to worry about how to get back to our ten-star hotels without having to come into contact with crowds of informed angry people. It is also exhilarating when we are unintentionally exposed to trace amounts of the stinging air that we will ensure you all have plenty of.

I hope to see thousands of you there. After all, my body has become desensitized to viagra and they say that fear is an aphrodisiac! Man, I can?t wait to find out if that?s true?my good buddy Dubya always sets me up with a couple of DC?s finest call girls.

Anyway, let me know if you can make for our meeting. I?ll see if I can set assign each and every one of you your very own riot cop and jail cell. But just don?t come with thoughts of revolution. We hate that! All little fear is enough, I don?t want to have to wear my Depends undergarments again!

God?s superior creation,
Horst Kohler

Are there any Portland groups organizing buses to go?

I already contacted Greyhound for a "whole bus" (47 passenger) quote, and needless to say, it was a bit high:


Would You Mind Giving Activists a Loan? 15.Jun.2001 21:20

Isidor isidor@plutorus.com

Dear Mr. Horse Kobler,
MisManaging Directum of the IMF
(International Mafiosi Federation)

Thank you so much for inviting all the creative activists to your party. We are convinced we can bring you the necessary human excitement and imagination you so desperately crave as a result of having sold your souls to monopoly crapitalism.

We deeply understand your boring predicament and offer you constructive ways for becoming born-again humans. We know you still have a remnant of humanity somewhere deep inside the bowels of your Mad Corporation Disease infected carcasses.

Should you find the nasty threats posted by some activists too boring, please feel free to ask Isidor to write you a REALLY exciting one...
It will be his pleasure to supply you with a treat of a threat...<<<smiles>>>

We sincerely understand your need for fault finding in the ignorant and undisciplined populace we represent. Because of that need, we will even encourage you to tell our "political leaders" to make all activist activities illegal. This way, you can incarcerate all of us and only release a few at a time and at your convenience, whenever you need a little excitement. This would allow you to visit us in prison whenever you need to feel superior. It would be like...admiring your hunting trophies...

Since your International Mafia Federation (IMF) and the World Bonk will be holding their "Joint" Annual General Meetings in Washington, DC from September 28 to October 4, 2001, we thought you might enjoy some laughing gas and "medical marijuana" bombs thrown your way. We promise the best quality at competitive prices to boot.

I have included a nice site for you to visit. It's called www.money.com
I knew you would like it's name. One title I liked in particular is:

"Financial Aid: How to get what's coming to you".

Should you ever decide to give us a loan, we promise to give you maximum bang for your buck. Enjoy your meetings Cheese,
