Anarchy brings relief to Haiti

Down here in South Florida I was able to help PrimeTime Amusements in their efforts to collect supplies for the victims in Haiti. The entire operation was spontaneous and state-less (that's the anarchist part). There was ZERO government aid or involvement from start to finish, from donations collected in South Beach to aid distributed in Haiti.

The only contact with any government agents was them wondering whether or not to shut us down. But, after seeing so many volunteers working around-the-clock, dozens of News cameras swarming the location for interviews and footage and literally truck-after-truck filled to the brim with supplies, the goons backed off. The next day the Miami Beach police even volunteered to BRING people to our site to drop off supplies (maybe you can call that Government aid, but I think the lady cop was acting out of the kindness of her heart)!

After we collected in South Beach, the trucks drove to the Opa Locka airport where Turnberry Aviation volunteered to fly the supplies directly to Port Au Prince, Haiti. There a group of University of Miami Doctors headed by Dr. Barth Green will distribute the supplies.

Its an amazing experience so far and we will be collecting supplies until Monday, January 18th. If you live in South Florida, stop on by or do whatever it takes to make a difference in the lives of the victims in Haiti. This experience proves that we don't need politics or the State to help those in need.

WTF? Obama's Peace prize aint shit!

I swear the first thing that came to my mind when I read the headlines of Obama's Peace prize that it was an April fool's joke of some sort. I even had to check my calendar to make sure.

Obama's award was given to him out of pure politics. Just like the Nobel Prize in economics given to Paul Krugman (a complete moron when it come's to economics) this "peace" prize is a slap in the face to those who are truly trying to promote peace in the world.

Obama is the current Caesar, emperor of the biggest empire on earth and commander of the largest terrorist organization (the US state) known to man. On January 26th it was reported that Obama ordered an attack in Pakistan that murdered 4 children! These murders took place during the 11-day period that was used to evaluate his merits for the peace prize. How the hell do any of these actions even imply promoting peace?

Dr. King suffered all sorts of attacks, jail time, insults, death threats (and worse) before he was honored with the Nobel peace prize. I guess the Nobel committee and their prize is not worth a damn anymore!

Paper money is our downfall

From an article in the Times Online defending a gold standard, we get these great quotes:

In 1873 Jevons could already write: “It is hardly requisite to tell again the well-worn tale of the over-issue of paper money which has almost always followed the removal of the legal necessity of convertibility. Hardly any civilised nation exists, which has not suffered from the scourge of paper money at one time or another... Time after time in the earlier history of New England and some of the other states now forming part of the American Union, paper money had been issued and had brought ruin.”

Daniel Webster's opinion should never be forgotten. Of paper money he says: “We have suffered more from this cause than from every other cause or calamity. It has killed more men, pervaded and corrupted the choicest interests of our country more, and done more injustice than even the arms and artifices of our enemy.”

The paper money system enables the world wars and destruction in the first place. If you are truly anti-war / pro-peace then you must strike the disease of belligerent warfare at it's root: paper money.

Happy Birthday Dr. King... now lets put him on our Money

Back in April of 2005 I originally created this design showing what Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. would look like on a US $20 dollar bill. This was inspired by the movement to Put Dr. King on the 20. Being that today we celebrate his birthday and local AM radio stations are playing his "I Have A Dream" speech in it's entirety, I wanted to bring this campaign back to the forefront.

I guess the creators of this movement chose the $20 because President Andrew Jackson is the only non-Hamiltonian depicted in a widely circulated federal reserve note (and because he killed lots of innocent indians too). I personally would LOVE to have Dr. King replace Alexander Hamilton on the $10... but as long as the central bank exists they will not part with their patron saint. So Andrew Jackson is slim pickings for being replaced by one of the giants of the civil rights, anti-war, pro-peace and brotherhood movement.

Spread the word!

We need Peace in Colombia

Today the House of Representatives is debating over the infamous "Plan Colombia". Several Democrats, including Reps. Jim McGovern (D-Massachusetts), Betty McCollum (D-Minnesota) and Dennis Moore (D-Kansas), have introduced an amendment that will cut some of the funding that is adding more fuel to the fire of that 40-year-old civil war that's cost thousands and thousands of lives in Colombia.

He's a little secret for the suits in Washington DC... after 40 years of civil war in Colombia, the PEOPLE WANT PEACE! 80% of the 3.2 Billion dollars provided for Plan Colombia have been exclusively for military aid. And ummmm... how's the drug trade doing? No, we haven't dented the production and importation of Cocaine into the US enough to justify those 3.2 Billion dollars? What? It's not working? Of course it's not because these bastards* don't understand the plight of the Colombia people. (*You rotten trigger-happy, shoot-em-up, military industrial complex-ass bastards!)

Here are quotes from a new article in the LA Times regarding the results of Plan Colombia:

"The [U.N.] numbers are devastating," said Adam Isacson of the Center for International Policy, which has argued that eradication campaigns must be accompanied by large-scale development efforts that offer peasants alternative livelihoods.

"The spraying, when it isn't accompanied by any alternative development, doesn't seem to discourage [coca farmers] from trying again, because there just aren't a lot of other good choices out there," Isacson said.

Peasants have responded by planting even more coca, hiding it under trees and among other crops, and turning to varieties that produce a higher yield, the U.N. report said.

Plan Colombia began under the Clinton administration primarily to fight drugs. But after the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks, the Bush administration has emphasized counter-terrorism and regional security.

While some conservatives wish to cut funding for Colombia, many Democrats want to spend less on its military and more on rural economic development. Democratic critics also wonder whether the U.S. has an exit strategy for Colombia.

Why not spend those billions on more rural economic development programs to give farmers a profitable alternative to growing cocaine. Here in the US the federal government subsidizes farmers all of the time to keep the prices of milk and other produce fixed. Lets give the people a real choice so that the drug trade can be eradicated from the inside out and the farmers can provide an honest living for their families. Colombians want peace and with the right aid they will achieve peace. The key word is "peace", ya hear that, you Yosemite Sam, gun-totin', military state-ass Nazi bastards in Washington DC!

It's not about killing the violent, it's about empowering the peaceful.
