justice Civil libertarians are girding for a backlash that could limit individual freedoms as a result of this week's terrorist attacks. The American Civil Liberties Union of Northern California has started a telephone hotline to monitor incursions into civil liberties, particularly racial profiling.

"At this time of crisis, we want to make sure that civil liberties aren't violated," said Dorothy Ehrlich, executive director of the ACLU's Northern California chapter. The Lawyers' Committee for Civil Rights is meeting in San Francisco today to discuss the risks of repressive steps taken in the name of safety and to plan a response if needed.

I hope everyone knows...
...that Upsidasium is from an old Rocky and Bullwinklie cartoon.
,,and of course Boris Badenov was trying to get it from Rocky
and Bullwinkle,,,I think "Wrong Way Peachfuzz" may have been
involved too..............If my memory serves me well,Upsidasium
was some special stuff that kindof reversed the effect of gravity.

You're NOT alone, Cannabis For Freedom
I personally hold the server of National Security RESPONSIBLE for this act of lunacy.
How dare you turn your head to the point of blindness?
Does it help you smile- knowing that YOU helped Media Ratings, that day, and helped "reinstate confidence" in that shoddy organization/network that you call, "Americas'?"

Whoever would've thought...

T.V. + Prohibitionist = TERROR ???

Damned Steel-Huggers...

...look at what your Planes do!!!

I've been saying it for A LOoooOOOng time now.

Look at what your Cars do!!!
Look at what you- the so-called-civilized-human are responsible for! And for letting Others GET AWAY WITH THIS!!!

You make me ashamed, to say the least, to say that I'm even Human.
Ouch, how i wish i were a centipede!!!

some protection we have...

from Sep.11,2001 on forth, ANYONE who chooses to mate and have babies is considered a terrorist, because- DENY IT NOT- this world is a TERRIBLE, terrible, terrible, TERRIBLE, TERRIBLE, T E R R I B L E place to "grow" in...

ask ANYONE...

drop your "Fight for freedom" mantras...

Ya can't even get someone to find Ballots that have been thrown out in an, uh, e-l-e-c-s-h-u-n, or whatever those rockin voter parties are...

Humans SUCK!!!

And more tragedies like this WILL CONTINUE...only 'cause...

HUMANS REALLY, R E A L L Y suck...BigTime ((and his buddies butties))

What does it mean to be free?
What does it mean to be secure?

Figure that one out, Dearest Doctor, prescribe me A GOD Pill...send me on my way with my bill in my the land of NO HOPE.

What DOES it mean to have hope?
What does anything REALLY mean when it's being cooked inside of the Masters' Pot? Like some great big, worthless stew?

Life Sucks............And ADULTS make it that way.

With their bullshit Cars, their seriously-flawed electro-inventions, their easily-breakable homes.

ANd their minds....

While the FBi was killing non-violent marijuana
farmers, and colin Powell was helping to poison and
murder poor Columbians, terrorists were roaming free
in America. We have had a War on American citizens
for too long. The politicians and lawmakers of the
United States are just as responsible for these terrorist
acts as are the terrorists that carried them out. If our
current administration and the current Senators and
Congressmen really cared about our people they would
have thwarted this violence before it ever occurred.

But, no they had to eradicate a harmless substance
which has never torn people's limbs from their bodies.
Cannabis has never taken down 110 story buildings or
stopped our financial markets, yet the politicos in office
have always seen it as a greater threat than terrorism.
How many more years will we Americans become
victims of terrorism because some assholes in
Congress want to persecute us. How many more
BILLIONS of dollars will be wasted trying to stamp out
Cannabis and other drugs that will never match the
horrors of September 11, 2001. At least $20 billion a
year is spent eradicating cannabis and prosecuting
those who use and possess it, it's no wonder our
economy is suffering and social security is being bilked
and our innocent New Yorkers are being killed.

I personally hold every politico who has perpetuated the
drug war in the last 30 years responsible for the tragedy
that occurred on September 11, 2001.

Hey Kapt.,

You answered my question yesterday and suddenly we are the terrorists in their eyes.

So predictiable!

And so spooky!

Well, Mr. DEAthwatchdotcom, if you are snooping around here, Go chase the real criminals! The real terrorists are just that. An average dea agent, 9000 of them.. Go look in a mirror and behold, here is the real terrorist. If drugs were legal, none of this stuff would happend at the WTC.

The articles don't surprise me. Since it apears we are going into a war mode things will be different. I believe that wisdom should be used to not get in trouble. Don't talk about illegal activities for one. We should be careful about what we say. Discussing changing drug laws is still free speech and we aren't breaking any laws. These are a few things I think we should think about.

You are so right about "not thinking".................certainly, I can't help but wonder if this terrorist event would have happened (or happened in such a tragic way with so many deaths and so much destruction) if we had put some of the $80 billion or so we spend fighting plants on things like real airport security (instead of McDonald's workers in security uniforms, and having an armed LEO on every plane (undercover) rather than just hasing some plant and its growers?

They train us to pay attention to the ILLUSION OF SAFETY (honestly, no knives in airport restaurants? who are they kidding?) rather than truly think about probabilities, risks vs. benefits, etc. I guess they figure symbolism is more important to sheeple than freedom -- and the fact that it ain't free -- so how do you pay for its costs and keep them at a reasonable level. Do you realize the price we will pay the ILLUSION of safe airports? They say it won't pay timewise to fly any distance under 400 miles, so that means people that need to get anywhere in that radius will drive, which we know is many times more dangerous -- in terms of real, statistical risks -- than flying. Why is okay if, say, 200 more people die in traffic every year because it isn't time efficient to fly? Does that make sense, IF YOU THINK?

Be well.

At last, we hear from DEAWatch on the debate
And, just as predictable as an Eastern sunrise, we get...this

12 Sep 2001, 14:09 PST, 5th Edition
"N.M. Gov. Debates Legalizing Drugs with DEA Boss, con't:

Instead of screwing around with Gary Johnson Asa should be making public statements equating community drug dealers with terrorists.

(Emphais mine. -k.)

We all know that a good portion of drug money is going to terrorist organizations. Drug dealers and terrorists are one and the same: they both work to undermind our national security. Somebody should tell Asa to leave the debates to ONDCP and start acting like a law enforcement executive. He is missing a good media opportunity to raise the drug war issue. Terrorists and drug dealers are one and the same... or is it only the flower part of the poppy that Afghanistan ships to the U.S.???

Need I say it? I told you that the antis would be scratching to make some hay from this tragedy, and exactly how they would do it. And here it is.

Re: New Mexican - Illuminati - READ
23 is the main number of the Illuminati, leading to other important numbers for them.
2/3 = .666 [devil]
2+3 = 5 [pentagram]

9/11/2001 additionally to being a ritual date:
9+11+2+0+0+1 = 23
In Jewish Calendar it's the 23rd of Elul 5761
To the common people it's 911, emergency, plus the start of a new millenium, 2001

CNN, proudly shows the flag of the united states 23.9/7, during the reporting - but is it the whole flag? No. Visible of it, are 15 stars, and 8 stripes...

15+8 = 23

Phone numbers, created for the current events, seen on CNN, and / or at the american red cross homepage:

United Airlines:
1+8+0+0+9+3+2 = 23 --- 8+5+5+5 = 23

1+8+8+3+3 = 23

The number can be broken up into six occurances of either
5, 23, or 2 and 3:

__2+3_____2+3_2+3_2+3_2+3_2+2+1 < 2*3 times the number 5
___23______23__23__23__23__22+1 < 6 times the number 23

___2_______2_______2___2__2_2__ < 6 occurances of a 2
___3_______3__3_3__3___3_______ < 6 occurances of a 3

But the most significant phone number, is that of the

US Air Force:
(253) = [11] * 23
(276) = [12] * 23
[11]+[12] = 23
[1+1+1+2] = {5}
1+8+9+{5} = 23

How far do coincidences go? This is beyond random, this is a message.

Think about it, what's more efficient for communication than a more than a hundred years old, constantly improved code, hidden in your ___everyday numbers___, completely invisible, insertable in every kind of text, from sports, cooking, gardening, science, music, to terrorism reporting?

Who does extensive math operations on the trillions of everyday numbers we're flooded with all the time? Who are present everywhere?

It can signal to those enlightened for example, which numbers to call for information, which events are under control, where science actually is much farther, than the status owned medias present to us. Waypoints maybe, in the internet that lead you to vital information, if followed correctly.

The common people just laugh at an idea as absurd as this, "why would they do that?"

Why not? It has worked for centuries.

The Illuminati have their men everywhere, FBI, CIA, governments, DEA, high times, terrorist groups, drug cartels, banks, pharma industry, oil, wood, television, radio, printmedias, military, tobacco, alcohol, hospitals, red cross, everywhere you can imagine...

Who stops them from gaining control?
Why do you insist that they cannot be?
How do we know that this isn't the case?
What proof is there that they don't exist?

What kind of mystical bright white force of light do you expect to be actively spying, preventing, fighting, killing the Illuminati?

For my own sanity...
I've tried to develop over the years a 'trip-wire' in my
head to detect whenever someone is trying to push the
implanted 'emotional buttons' in my heart. (Mine are like
yours FoM...the american flag, patriotic songs, hymns,
etc...) I can't help but tear up.

I have (cynically?) interpreted anyone who tries to push
these buttons as trying to bypass my brain. Why? For
what purpose?

I'm guessing the movie 'Wag The Dog' is getting rented
a lot these days.

Why I'm NOT watching
Step back from the terrible tragedy of it all, and think.

(Which is precisely what the rulers of this country don't want you to do. why do you think they play the same images, over and over? Why do you think the service is being televised? at the very real risk of seeming crass, who is going to benefit from all this? Certainly not the relatives of the victims.)

The Soviets had a huge monument at Leningrad; it's still there, I believe. And constantly being played in the background of this monument to the Fallen of Leningrad is some of the most sad and beautiful chorales I've ever heard. No words, just sad voices, singing like depressed angels. Like our Viet Nam memorial, few who ever go there are unmoved. Grizzled old survivors of the battle there and in other places like the deadly meatgrinder at Kursk are moved to tears.

But the entire war wouldn't have happened if the Communist government hadn't been run by effin' murderous madmen like Stalin and Beria. The terrible loss of life, the tens of millions dead...wouldn't have happened. That memorial is meant to take people's minds off of what really happened...and why. Millions suffered and died - because of criminal insanity on the part of their leaders.

Do you see where this is going? Instead of a gigantic monument of a woman swinging a sword over her head, with an angelic chorus in the background...we get religious displays. And an angelic chorus in the background.

All to take your mind off of the fact that were it not for actions committed by the US, those people being memorialized would still be alive.

I mourn for the terrible loss of life, yes. My heart goes out to all those left behind: wives, husbands, mothers, fathers, sisters, brothers, loved ones, friends.

But there is a terrible coldness in my mind. For these lives didn't have to be sacrificed. And those who have and will benefit in the future (via contracts for all the munitions that are about to be expended in retribution) will do as they always have done: sit back and smile at the eternal gullibility of the American public. Whose heartstrings are being plucked like instruments...deliberately. And whose sheeplike minds are being manipulated, being turning towards thoughts of vengeance.

Very profitable vengeance.

You've captured my feelings............
FoM ---

I have spent a lot of time today trying to explicate my feelings, as all that is available to my conscious self lately has been a numb, dry, grating affect.

I think you have parsed things out for me completely, FoM:

"Many people are angry and that's ok. I just don't get very angry anymore. I get sad but not angry. Upset but not really angry. I don't expect much from life"

Your statement describes how I feel now and have felt all week. It's dead on. But to read it is soooooooooooo makes me think we are but "shells", maimed but still able to "produce", if only to distract us from our feelings.

Now that is potent "Upsidasium"!
Damn, I just love my new word: upsidasium.....even though I don't know what it means. But thanks for this neologism, Theropinfool.

But I think the "upsi" -- as we "in the know" call it -- is way too potent, since I can't even figure out what jAHN is talkin' about. It's not the lack of subjects, verbs, and objects in his text that confuses me, though, so much as the point he is trying to make, and would make, but for his brains being scrambled by the God-awful "upsidasium". Maybe it got to him as a child?

Have an "upsi" day all and pax vobiscum.

contrary-wise -what it is, it wouldn't be. And what it wouldn't be, it
would. You see?" - Alice in Wonderland.

By David Icke
The force that seeks to control this world and introduce its global fascist
state, the network I call the Illuminati, is nothing if not predictable.

The unbelievable horror perpetrated on the cities of New York and Washington
is a problem-reaction-solution sting on the collective mind of all humanity
and I have been expecting an event of this magnitude for some years. I
thought it could be a war or a nuclear "terrorist" device, but something
fantastic was always going to happen during the years of the Bush presidency
when, as I wrote on inauguration day, the agenda would be pressed forward
with a gathering pace.

Fast as the world was being moved towards global centralised fascism, it was
still not fast enough to match the timescale demanded by the Illuminati
agenda. And the opposition to their globalisation plans and their assaults
on freedom, was gathering by the day. It was clear that something of
enormous magnitude was being orchestrated that would so devastate the
collective human mind with fear, horror, and insecurity, that "solutions"
could be offered that would advance the agenda in a colossal leap almost
overnight. This is what we saw in America on the ritually-significant
eleventh day of the ninth month - 911 is the number for emergencies in the
United States. Ritual and esoteric codes are at the heart of everything the
Illuminati undertakes.

And, mind-numbing as these atrocities are, this is the start, not the end,
of the next cycle of the Illuminati agenda for the mental, emotional,
spiritual, and physical imprisonment of humankind. More and more death and
destruction will unfold as the "Free World" unites as an (in affect) world
army and world government to use the threat of "terrorism" (their own) to
justify a war against the people and countries they choose to take the rap
for what the very forces WITHIN the "free world" are themselves responsible
for. Even war with the Islamic peoples is not the end, but the means to an
end - a conflict with the remaining forces of communism, which they also
control. Remember that the Illuminati operate through every country and
within "terrorist" organisations and those agencies which "oppose" such
terrorism. Only by having agents within all "sides" can they be sure of
controlling the game and knowing the outcome before it starts. The
Illuminati have operatives within the Islamic world, just as they have them
in the so-called "free world", as we shall see in the months to come. Saddam
Hussein is every bit as much a knowing Illuminati pawn as Father George and
Boy George Bush in America, for example

I'm not even clear about what... american REALLY represents?

I'm 24 and I've lived in america (so-titled) all of my living days.

In Kindegarten, being American was just, simply, making it to school aside all worries which loom at home-life.
1st Grade, being American was just getting the work done, and hoping for progression- in age, skill, sociality and even self-motivation.
2nd -5th grade, being american meant helping people laugh through tough times...even after the Challenger exploded, and WE ALL UNDERSTOOD- regardless of what Mind-less Consumerism would have a "child" (read: little human being) believe what they CAN and CANNOT understand...

6th grade through 8th grade: being american meant keeping strong on the track i felt would make my life...just being. The environment that's administered (to most, at a guess) is completey chaotic when you start 6th-8th grade...Teachers tell me i can't read "Pet Sematary" because of content. I'm told not to talk out loud because it can grow a tendency of drowning out the "teachers'" inability of being audibly inclined.(and mentally, i add as a personal note). All the while, other 6th-8th graders are getting away with the self-freedom of Bitching about other students' haircuts, the clothes they can afford, the friends they choose and how they're "nerds, geeks, dweebs, dorks, weird-os, Faggots ((how overused is it??)), the list goes on (I'm being redundant, in a way).

High School, being american was about Finding a job through all of the reports of "Unemployment at all-time low", "Workers Treated like Garbage", "Many Ph-D possessors work at Wal-Mart", and MANY other "current events" that have come and gone-- worried and forgotten, as if NOTHING relied on these "facts."
Being American in High School, to some, also meant certain "Clicks" which require Humiliating Deeds just to "Be a part of the team"...It also meant being a Supporter of Corporate, Good-Ol'_Boy, Supremacy...amongst being a supporter of Environmental causes ((which are Prohibited by *certain (read: Orrin Hatch and the DEA/CIA/FBI) Governmental Officials*)) while some "other" Gov. "officials" are saying to just Ignore those Sub-standards!?!
It also meant choosing my own path in life, much like k-5, 6-8, 9-12, etc...
I actually dropped the High School for sake that I was becoming more heavily involved in my personal aspirations as an Arifactualist Artist.A very Low-FInancial statistic, in scope with many other jobs available to date. I was also too loaded with personal and family problems ((finding out that dad's got HepC, mom was living with a Coke/Crack Producing Boyfriend, who repeatedly threatened to Beat the Ever-living-shoit outta me- normal life, you know? learning my one-arm Grandpa died ((who was the butt of lots of students' jokes from K-11)) and many other "little" quirks that make it tough for some humans in this QUite Inhumanitarily-favoring Community that we are FORCED (read, otherwise, committ suicide to escape---"But there's so much OTHER stuff to live for") to reside in. It's not EVEN a community...It's a F@#CKING Police State and it ALWAYS has been...

You can't see?

GO to a doctor...

If you believe that he/she is NOT part of the problem ((chances ARE and HAVE BEEN stacked against PEOPLE LIKE ME for a LoooOOOng time, now))

For some reason,
We Live/Survive through the shit that you put us through, Dearest Prohibitionist...
For this

You will Fall
I will Stand

((I didn't even get into the College Story, for sake I might mess up what i already have...although, I dropped outta HighSchool, I got my "Good Enough Diploma" and attended the community centre, where I'm currently ((well, i got a year off to gather myself {and my culturistic creeds, collectively)) studying Tv-Production, Script-Writing, and All of the other stuff that's in the 3-Dimensionally-Oriented Computer Animation Field of work...where I learn about all of the little tricks of "reeling in the consumer, YOU, and how to get ya coming back- aGAIN, and aGAIN..."

I've been a part-time musician, too, having started with Saxophone in 4th grade and scoring gigs in the school talent shows, until i was in 6th grade. I would also do some performance art with some other students, as like, little comedy gigs for the fun of performing. I dropped the Sax 'cause WHOEVER would've guessed that schools lead me down the path of the "rich and supreme" with that pricey-ass Saxophone???

Electric Guitars are MUCH MORE VERSATILE, anyway. Acoustics vary like leaves blowing in the wind the midst of fall...


And so is being an american...

when your vote doesn't count, and NEVER has.

when figuring out WHO voted for WHO...

when listening to the Intercoms scream,

all aboard....

I think that the proof-reading destroying "upsidasium" of which you complain is about 1,000% times more potent than the old 20% (by weight) "upsidasium" of our youth in the 1960's (I mean, just look at what it's done to my math skills; can something be ten times (1,000%) a weight concentration of 20%, i.e., can any substance be twice (200%) its own weight without gaining volume? [Not unless it's in black hole or in the mind of an anti speaking about the strength of today's pot, I think?].

Anyway, you better check the strength of your dose of "upsidasium", as it seems to have made you obsessed with pronoun confusion, even to the arguable detriment of meaning. Or, in my MJ crazed and obsessed quest for meaning, I have missed something in reading the other part of the post you wanted to correct?

I can figure out the pronouns on my own, but what is with "The most beautiful planet on the face of the earth is a different place"? How many planets are on the face of the earth? And of those, how does a devoted aesthete determine which is the most beautiful?

I am trying so damn to hard to smile, to find some humor -- with no Letterman, no Modern Humorist online, no new writing in The Onion, no Daily Show any of the past few days -- that I am trying, apparently with little success, to find humor in the "black hole" thinking of anti's math and the "upsidasium" induced grammatical and semiotic crises in a C-News post!

Or is it "Cuz I Got High"?

Trying to find something to smile about, I remain,

Yours in "upsidasium",

'give there all' to give their all. Must be the 'upsidaisium'.

And you heard it first, here, folks
People at CNews have been warning of this, even before the present crisis. (And stop and think about that phrase: 'the present crisis'. They just seem to pop out of nowhere, but some of these have been years in the our own government.)

Think back to the very legitimate worries many of us had about Y2K. About the possibility of the USG beginning a power grab with a possible computer crisis as an excuse? They had their plans, all right. I refer all and sundry to Executive Order 11490, Tricky Dick's own personal wet dream to take over the country, abolish State Government and consolidate The Nation into 10 Federal regions...

Then there was Ronnies favorite plan, drawn up by Ol' Ollie North, himself:


EXECUTIVE ORDERS:Bonfire of the Constitution

It's still on the books. Then there's Klintons attempt to do the same thing...without even a crisis to justify it:

Clinton Executive Order "REVOKES" 10th Amendment

These are landmines in the road of a free people. Step on them by giving in to the temptation of 'increasing security' or other such nonesense, and we are all doomed.

Those of us who've had a taste of how 'concerned' our(?) government is for our 'welfare' - by making us prisoners, tearing apart our families, destroying our livelihoods, and involving us in foreign civil wars - know all too well the dangers of granting government too much power.

to serve and protect liberty
The modern model of 'freedom and demockrazy' is not in any form to protect you or me.
What has the gougerment done over the past 30 years or so? It has passed mandate after mandate
furthering unnecessary intrusion into our lives. If it is not something that we put into our bodies, it is something that we say. If it is not something we say, it is something we do. If it is not something we do, it is something we think. Even smiles are illegal.

Now, when there is big trouble on the horizon, who do all of the lawmakers beseechingly appeal?
The good ol' American boys and girls who can give there all to make it happen. The ones who have been become totally controlled by every doggone rule of law that can be thought of to the hilt. We have been brutally assaulted at Waco, Ruby Ridge, and Rainbow farm. That is fine for them, but when we all have been brutally assaulted, then it is a different story. I wonder why?

Osama bin Laden is not a model citizen by any means, and he has brutally awakened everybody on the earth. The most beautiful planet on the face of the earth is a different place.

I hope the fools on the Hill can wake up, too.

Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me.

No foolin' from.... theropinfool

I can't help but think...
...that this is some action this Nation takes when its' tampered with.

It's just Amazing, simply Amazing, that "American Security" seems like a word that only applies to protecting Anti-Druggies.
In situations like these, how come these "Lawmakers" can't pass some Legislation to begin some Tight-Ass Surveilance?

Oh, they save that for the Terrorists who poison children with pot, i bet would be an answer i'd HONESTLY get, if in fact, anyone in AmeriKKKa WERE honest...far cry!!!

If this was someone buying a dime bag of pot,
Surveillance would be more abundant than Pebbles of Concrete.


......We see where Justice Dep. places its' priorities,
with GREAT MISFORTUNE...Mass Misfortune. I could go on with the name calling, and i'm sure that you, my innocent Pot-Petting-Friends of Earth.

This is just completely D E R A N G E D, you hear me?
YES! Deranged...

The day that people are required to have little-to-no experience for flying planes, yet can purchase if you have enough dough ( + stupidity ). In my little Opinion.

A free country, huh? Someones' idea of a Sick-Joke, right?
