2015-0920 / 5 Master Crimes You May Have to Explain to Future Generations For Not Stopping
OAC 9/20/2015 comment: Thank you Bernie. Stopping the fascist advance of the globalists has been my number one project for the last five years. Although organizing and acting locally here in Oregon has been a very slow process, I take personal satisfaction in what I do. The biggest obstacle in reaching the minds of my fellow Oregonians, like anywhere else, is the job of working to separate ordinary people from their addictions to the stupefying sources of propaganda, their intentional ignorance, and their general insouciance in the face of the coming world-wide destruction of the self. I tend now to believe that the reason for our lack of progress (so far), comes from a subconscious program of live for today and die tomorrow suicide pact between the masses and the elites. We are living to have fun now and joy today in spite of knowing that tomorrow will be the end of everything good - so why bother?. How do we shatter this thinking? One way to to inject reality messages directly into the social stream in our communities. Getting into the streets with sign messages of all kinds in order to stimulate an random passer-by's awareness and subconscious in thinking differently from the status quo. Acting in the streets, even as one-man-band protest can itself be seen as a message of encouraging others to act in the same way. Let's get on the streets with our various messages and stir things up.

2015-0913 OAC / The US Constitution has been steadily eroded and generally trashed to such an extent that what remains today is but a shadow of the hearty document adopted more than just a few centuries ago. The most damaging effects are reflected in what's left in the Bill of Rights. Especially the first fourteen amendments to the Constitution which has served as the guard against government abuse of power - especially September 11th 2001.
Set against this scene of legal and political abuse of power are things like government post-prison shaming lists (sex offenders) among other government lists, spying, asset forfeiture, unforgiving prison sentences, SWAT raids, armed drones, and militarized cops and their assaults on innocent civilians.
Americans should no longer pretend that the Constitution, whose purpose was to hold the US government accountable, is still our highest governing law. Regardless of who we feel about this demise of our constitution, we must understand that the country we live our lives in today is one in which our criminal government does anything it wants, lawful or not, and to hell with our liberty.

August 19th 2015 - Protest Movements Are Changing Public Opinion Throughout American history, advocates for racial justice and economic justice have sometimes been at odds, but they’ve also found common ground. In recent weeks we’ve watched this tension play out in a surprising way, when Black Lives Matters (BLM) activists disrupted Bernie Sanders rallies to demand that the socialist senator from Vermont focus more attention on racial inequities.
OAC / August 15th 2015 - America is already a police state. And Oregon is doing its best to catch up. If you were paying attention over the last dozen to twenty-five years, you would already know that. For those of you who have been paying attention to our continually evolving police state here in Oregon, it will also ... <more>
