Robert Anton Wilson left this Earth January 11, 2007.
Author, visionary, scientist, teacher, philosopher, historian, guerrilla ontologist, and guru. He was one of the greatest thinkers of our time and his passing will bring immeasurable loss to humanity.
He taught me the map is not the territory, the menu is not the meal, and "maybe" is a better discription than "is". He broadened my reality tunnel and opened my mind like a can of worms on steroids.

Thanks for the enlightenment, Bob.

freedom to fascism

Has anyone noticed a difference in life lately? Sort of a cloud over everything... a sense of seriousness that wasn't there before? Maybe you don't notice it because it's been part of our lives for so long and we're getting used to corporations, politicians, and "terrorists" continually coming up with more and more ways to make our lives oppressive, bit by tiny bit. Hidden charges on your phone bill and electric bill. Insane interest rates on credit cards. The Patriot Act, Homeland Security, I.R.S. Needing permission from the government for virtually every transaction from health care, putting gas in your car, starting a business, or buying a home. Quality jobs in America going south of the border or overseas while China provides nearly everything manufactured. A "war on terror" where phones are tapped, e-mails read, a national ID card due in May 2008 embedded with radio frequency identification that will replace your drivers license so you can be tracked anywhere. At the same time, our southern borders are open to illegal immigration but it's illegal for our border patrol to stop them. Americans work hard their whole lives to retire on social security while illegal immigrants are granted social security free of charge. You can try to vote these guys out of office but electronic voting is becoming the standard. It's well documented that electronic voting machines can be programmed to pick a winner before the election by whatever margin they want with no paper ballots for back-up.
The list goes on and on, and with each addition to this list we lose a little more of our freedoms until our freedoms are in name only. Some lofty, idealistic ideas our founding fathers thought was a good idea and the Constitution will be what GW Bush once said, "Just a goddamned piece of paper", and the Bill of Rights should be changed to reflect our "modern world", and the cover story is, "war on terror", "war on drugs", democracy for all. Bullshit! And we hear it so often we're starting to believe it.
Were you aware on October 17, 2006 there was a public signing of 'The Military Commissions Act of 2006' which suspends Habeas Corpus?
The 'Military Commissions Act of 2006' is a violation of Article 1, Section 9 of the U. S.Constitution which states: "The privilege of the writ of habeas corpus shall not be suspended, unless when in cases of rebellion or invasion the public safety may require it." Is there an invasion? Yes! Our country has been invaded by 30 million illegal aliens, but you can rest assured that the Military Commission Act is NOT about them . . . it's about YOU!
On the same day, in private, Bush signed into law "Public Law 109-364, or the 'John Warner Defense Authorization Act of 2007' (H.R.5122) (2), which was signed by the commander in chief on October 17th, 2006, in a private Oval Office ceremony, allows the President to declare a 'public emergency' and station troops anywhere in America and take control of state-based National Guard units without the consent of the governor or local authorities, in order to 'suppress public disorder'.
If you think these two signings are no big deal then you don't understand them. Simply put, it gives the president power to evoke martial law for whatever reason he wishes. Total suspension of our Constitution. All that stuff we fought a revolution over 200 years ago will be lost in the mists of antiquity.

Here is a list of your rights as an American citizen that you will lose if the president, whoever he may be, gets a feather up his ass.
