Strikes at the evil enemy
Lurking deep within
Their own souls and bodies.

Concentration camps in the USA.

I'm hoping this project isn't too late.

Dammit.  Now I am going to be all paranoid for the rest of the day...

You speak for us all Reaper.  Time is of the essence.  I have waited my whole life for the opportunity to work is some real way toward a return to freedom of the type the FF's envisioned.  That time is now and we must work harder than ever.  Do not doubt that we will face extreme opposition at some point along this perilous journey to freedom.  Just read a little history.  Whenever oppressed people have risen up and demanded their freedom, bloodshed has followed.  Though we wish to work within the system I am not sure we can accomplish much as they seem to change the rules faster and faster all the time.

Same here. The projected time scale, compared to the near geometric progression of our current police state, does give me serious concern.

What we plan is perfectly legal at the moment, but that may not be the case tomorrow... or even five minutes from now.


For a right, now example, just look at my home state, CA.  One day a legally owned rifle is A-okay and the next day it is an evil assault rifle and you are an evil owner of military style weapons.  In CA, ones "rights" are an example of now-ya-see-um-now-ya-don't.

One problem we must all be aware of is that not only can they change the rules at a moments notice, but also they have in the past changed the rules retroactively so that what one did legally became illegal after the fact and the person was convicted.  The "logic" behind this being, "well it should have been illegal."  How do you fight that?

Yes I know... that is a major reason we (CatBorg & myself) moved out of CA. Yeah, we both tend to vote with our feet... so follow through to whichever state is chosen is not an issue, as we have already moved for similar reason.


I wish my partner and I had as much flexibility right now.  We will, just not quite yet.  So, <Mega Joule asks completely off topic>  why doesn’t CatBorg ever post to the board?
