Things to do-our new civil war

Here are some things to do once you get enough sleep and a good hearty meal
Here's some things to do once you get enough sleep and a good hearty meal:

*BBB-If you're not already doing it, boycott all Bushie businesses in your neighborhood and/or town. Consider getting another dentist, bike mechanic, plumber, etc., if they were stupid enough to vote for chimpy

*Are there churches in your neighborhood that preach hate? Let them know how you feel.

*Consider a personal boycott: quit being nice to fundies and other wackos even if you work with or are related to them. No reason to be vicious but no reason to act like they care because they don't.

*Commiserate-gather up your pals, drink, bitch and brainstorm. You are not alone especially in this part of the country.

*Worst-case scenarios: what will you/we do for drinking water, birth-control, health services, lights and heat if/when things get worst? What can we do for our friends, affinity-group, etc.-housing, food, hiding places? Best to begin the research now.

Chin up darlings-have a good rant,rage, cry and then let's get back to doing the work we need to do

Some security matters 04.Nov.2004 11:44

anonymous or made up

  1. Don't forget to exchange GnuPG keys, and if you have the experience, set up Linux with excrypted home directories and swap and IPSec.
  2. Plant a garden, incase food shipments are irregular
  3. Get in Shape in case you need to walk or bike more (their books should be available in used bookstores or libraries)
  4. If anyone tries to convince you to do radical acts that target innocents, do not fall for it
  5. Have hope, not everyone is evil, many are just ill-informed

geopolitics and Cascadian Awakening 08.Nov.2004 03:39

Alexandros of Cascadia

what we must do right now is to communicate.. talk.. e-mail.. chat ... sign.. whatever just get the message out in the public conversation! We NEED to have everyone within Cascadia talking of Cascadia, the election fraud and the idea of secession.

Here is my WARNING! They (the Fascists) might have another terrorist act happen (yes they were also connected to the 9/11 attacks .. lets finally just say it!) to get the corporate media to tell everyone to rally behind this Emperor. That is is a time of healing and finding these "new terrorists". If you are doing what I have recommended to
do .. which is to talk to all your friends about the idea of Cascadia and the stolen election then through in the connections between the fascists to the bin Laden. We can not stop! We must push forward and those left behind we will recover later!


I 100% believe We, Cascadians, must go for annexation to Canada along with the other "blue states". By having the cover of Canada we are in NATO and protected by both Canada and the European Union. We can also demand either our share of the money or military we spent. I believe we could then contain Fascist Amerika in a new Containment policy as we tried with another nuclear SuperPower in the past. Just he remove of the Blue States from Fascist Amerika alone would economically weaken Fascist Amerika.





as for now this is what we must do:


1.) We MUST this weekend bring the idea of Cascadia and breaking off from Fascist Amerika to consciousness of the general population and by Monday have it be the only conversation in all of Cascadia. Also we must bring the fact that the election was a farce (print out artcles or give websites about this like blackboxvoting.org) and this MUST be part of this dialogue of Cascadia! I would recommend the same if I was in the other "blue" states for their awakening of regional identity separate from Bush's Amerika. This should be done with massive "spamming" and like ACT (American Coming Together.. and if any are reading this well .. you have lists of democrats now who we can bet are disenfranchised :))) I would recommend to the less shy to feel free to talk to your neighbors or that person in the parking lot with a Kerry bumper sticker (this ofcourse should not be limited to democrats, but right now they are more visible). Our goal is simple in this part "To get it to the forefront of every conversation". The goal is the create critical mass. And if you are inclined to put up sighs or wave (any of the Cascadian flags) or create pamplets or print out leaflets talking of Diebold, secession, Cascadia and Cascadian awakening or get on radio talk shows or whatever. The goal is dialogue, awareness, education, generating a new paradigm.. an new group identity with a new future! If this works then Monday even the sold out local media will have to mention it, because everyone will have to talk of it.


Warnings!:

a.) becareful of dismissive comments like "it will never work" or "you are just have sour grapes" or any the other Phucting dismissive onliners comments that the sheeple spit out. Do not let it down and ignore the jerk and continue on as if the jerk just passed gas.


b.) the Fascist might orchastrate a "national" crisis like a terror alert or even a terrorist act which MUST NOT stop this conversation of Cascadia, secession and election fraud. If this happens the corporate media and authorative figures will make lots of appeals about "healing the nation". They will dismiss any movement to liberate us from the fascists as small and trivial. news personalities will make light of Cascadia or joke that they (we) are wackos. If any think is even in the corporate media the overly paid fascist mouth-pieces (we call news reporters) will end the story with dismissive comments or laughter.

2.) we need a time and place (while there is the energy and motivation... maybe Friday) to have people gather. My idea it a event. here is my suggestion "the All Bush flip off". This must be done through out all Cascadia from Bellingham to San Fransisco and it must be done at the same time. For convience I will use Portland as a example ... Cascadian or disenfranchised Portlanders (remember all the Kerry supporters on Portland's Waterfront) go to either the Waterfront or Pioneer Square and put up a image of Mr Bush (maybe Cheney too) and in one big massive group give them "the finger"! And take pictures from the images perspective of all gathered flipping the Fascists off and send it to the White House. The goal of this is NOT just to give them the collective "finger", but the real goal is to get people physically together to talk of Cascadia, Cascadians and our future! At the same time this should happen in other communities.

From this we can expnd to bring in more Cascadians and eventually we shall march down to Salem or Olympia (for San Fransisco .. I guess you declare yourself the new administrative seat of South Cascadia) and we demand secession NOW!

Before such an event happens we need to bring the police and leaders into our movement. We MUST find out issues that the police and state employees have against the Fascists.. and they do whether they recognize it or not. We need to teach them of the budget cuts, union busting, veteran cuts, issues related to them not being able to effectively do their jobs. We MUST appeal to them as fathers, mothers, sisters and brothers who have the same concerns as all of us do over education, safety, environment, cost of living and so on and so on.

Warning!:

a.) do not let the professional politicians nor charasmatic public figures usurp OUR movement. Especially DO NOT LET some dump as democrat politician tell us that we must "heal" our community or "this will take time" or "I promise you this...." or "I am with you..." ... this MUST be the PEOPLES movement!!! not a time for local celeberties... infact if you see someone who is a public figure look beyond them, smile and go hug the unrelated person behind him or her. I hate how these personalities (remember we are counted as nobodies until they need your vote or buy their product) steal the lime light of the people, of causes, of public attention. We have no time for them and no need for them. Now if they come to be a "nobody" like the rest of us and are honestly there to flip off Fascism and to awaken Cascadia.. then they have my blessings.. and I hope yours too.

In our world today their is so much hate intolerence and greed that we all have no where to go but down, I truly believe that these events are not set, I truly believe that if people would just stop pushing their differences on others, stop condemming people for their ideas, opinions, religion, color of skin or sexual preference and start just being nice. Then there doesn't have to be any war. But then again I'm just an idiot and we are all doomed, please look to Jesus for your answers, because their is no hope in the individual only the whole and right now the whole really and truly hates itself.

CIVIL WAR IS NOT A SOLUTION 18.Oct.2005 03:46

Nick Bloks, The Netherlands nickbloks@hotmail.com

First of all, I'd like u to know that I really think that bush is a twat.
Your ideas of starting a civil war is not right though. It will all end in poverty and starvation.
I know why you would want to start one, because bushs' government is fucking the U.S up.
Also, I know that you all want a different life, but this Civil war will end up as WWIII. I have been reading about a man called John Titor who claims to be a Time Traveler from the year 2036. He has predicted the 9/11 terrorism and many other happenings. Researchers even admitted that the Time machine John made, could actually work! What John predicted aswell before he left to go to 2036 again, is that the U.S.A will start a Civil War in 2005. This will eventually lead to the destruction of Europe, Big parts of the U.S and China. The world that John says he lives in, is based on farming and taking care of yourselves. John also said 3 BILLION people were killed in the war. I'm not asking u that u actually have to believe what John said what happened, but take a closer look and can u foresee this disaster?

Civil War 27.Nov.2005 04:45

taproot taprootpdx@comcast.net

A Civil War would definitely be disatrous; I'm not one who favors any kind of war and only violence when it is absolutely necessary. And it may be necessary soon. I don't see a middle ground between the Fascists and those who oppose fascism; we may have to
take up arms merely to defend ourselves. I think we should prepare and keep an open eye. In the meantime, as someone suggested, buy only necessary items, and try not to
buy from any large corporations, if possible. As John Titor suggested keep some items ready to take with you on a moment's notice. Here in the U.S. we have already been screwed in two elections, and there is reason to suspect that we will be screwed again in 2008. So for what it's worth; be prepared; the hate talk on the radio is intensifying and loud mouth Limbaugh still has about 20 million faithful listeners. That's a lot of angry fascists.
Take care all.

Nuts 27.Nov.2005 04:51

NUTCRACKER

you are a bunch of f---ing nuts.

I'm in the market for a new clock. 27.Nov.2005 10:48

muah!

A Coo-Coo will do. There's plenty here in 'Cascadia'. Just live in the woods of the Pacific Northwest and eat bark and ants. DON'T ask for any federal funds, help, or protection [federal, state or local]. Good bye. Good ridence. You will not be missed.


Why are you still here? Oh, this is still the best place in the world to live, work, and be as free as a large society can be. A society of relatively cheap food, shelter, and the chance to make it if you get your lazy hippie conspiracy-theory asses off your parents couch and DO something. You're types have been around since the beginning of time. The govt has always been bad, you want your own communte-type country [hell, you can't even manage your own lives, much less a 'country'], etc.

You just want to complain. Go elsewhere. You're just like the hollywood elites: bitch and complain, threaten to leave the country if an election doesn;t go your way, then just sit there boo-hooing about the state of affairs. Start packing. Now.

The Have's & the Havenot's 29.Nov.2005 16:39

Concerned johngraham5457@yahoo.com

This is a subject that simply blows me away. For the last two weeks I have been speaking to my friends and coworkers about a civil war within the next twenty years when the bubble bursts. We will be split into the HAVES & HAVENOTS. What follows? The have's will be largely outnumbered the havenot's will be set about trying to pay their bills with no jobs, no money, thus, no food, no utilities the list goes on. Who will be there to collect?? What will be the penalty for non payment?? How will we feed ourselves?? There is only one solution to this dilema, it's called civil war. It is noteworthy that I've never subcribed to many conspiracy theroies or anything even remotely related to the subject of a war within our own borders between the HAVES & THE HAVENOTS. One only need look around at whats going on in our country.

I love the close-minded. 19.Jan.2006 13:19

Nate-dawg the_great_white_horse@yahoo.com

I really do. I love 'em. I love how the sheep who drone on about American freedoms and how great those 'freedoms' make this country ignore the fundamental freedoms of speech and assembly. At what point in the U.S. constitution does it say "Love it or leave it" or "Be a flag-waving, jingoist moron or don't talk". All of the "love-it-or-leave-it" phonies can go about trading their souls and histories for DVD's and sports cars and leave the ignoring of the constitution to the White House.

To quote a rad bumper sticker I read today: "Yee-Ha is not a foreign policy". F-ing A.

Vash the Stampede Majinfrank777@yahoo.com

I speak for the common man, there is nothing we can do until the turn of these events.We Can TRY to speak out (and we will) but to no avail,at least for the time. This isnt just a civil war my common brethren. This will be a revolution. Mental and physical,for if the mind is nourished the body will soon follow...The common people of this land have forgotten what it means to, or have been ridiculed for, truly loving their country. We have become sheep. Semi or fully mindless puppets of corrupt politicians only out to satisfy their corporate lust by selling out the next available candidate. My TRUE fellow americans,the times that ARE about to befall us ARE MOST DEFINITELY going to be brutal,full of sorrow,hate,and confusion. We will not (as I said for the time being) be able to speak outright. That BY NO MEANS, says we shouldn't speak at all! We must be careful who we say what to. The more we become once again aware of our independendce the more danger we are all in .They WILL try to silence us. But they can't. They WILL try to completely control us. But they won't. WE ARE what "they" fear most,the voice and body of a free people. Its just a matter of time,how we prepare, and how we handle our self forged future wich will determine our fate.


Your faithful servant,
Vash
