Throughout America's adventure in free government, our basic purposes have been to keep the peace; to foster progress in human achievement, and to enhance liberty, dignity and integrity among people and among nations. To strive for less would be unworthy of a free and religious people. Any failure traceable to arrogance, or our lack of comprehension or readiness to sacrifice would inflict upon us grievous hurt both at home and abroad. ~ Dwight D. Eisenhower

45 Declared Goals For The Communist Takeover Of America

We will take America without firing a shot. We do not have to invade the US. We will destroy you from within.” Nikita Khrushchev, Russian, 11/18/1956, First Secretary of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union from 1953 to 1964

The Original Complete List Of The
45 Declared Goals
For The Communist Takeover Of America

1. U.S. acceptance of coexistence as the only alternative to atomic war.

2. U.S. willingness to capitulate in preference to engaging in atomic war.

3. Develop the illusion that total disarmament [by] the United States would be a demonstration of moral strength.

4. Permit free trade between all nations regardless of Communist affiliation and regardless of whether or not items could be used for war.

5. Extension of long-term loans to Russia and Soviet satellites.

6. Provide American aid to all nations regardless of Communist domination.

7. Grant recognition of Red China. Admission of Red China to the U.N.

8. Set up East and West Germany as separate states in spite of Khrushchev's promise in 1955 to settle the German question by free elections under supervision of the U.N. [Finally ended 3 October 1990]

9. Prolong the conferences to ban atomic tests because the United States has agreed to suspend tests as long as negotiations are in progress.

10. Allow all Soviet satellites individual representation in the U.N. ~ [Albania, 14 December 1955 ~ Poland, 15 October 1945 ~ Bulgaria, 14 December 1955 ~ Romania, 14 December 1955 ~ Czech Republic, 24 October 1945 & 19 January 1993 ~ East Germany, 18 September 1973 ~ Hungary, 14 December 1955]

11. Promote the U.N. as the only hope for mankind. If its charter is rewritten, demand that it be set up as a one-world government with its own independent armed forces. (Some Communist leaders believe the world can be taken over as easily by the U.N. as by Moscow. Sometimes these two centers compete with each other as they are now doing in the Congo.)

12. Resist any attempt to outlaw the Communist Party.

13. Do away with all loyalty oaths.

14. Continue giving Russia access to the U.S. Patent Office.

15. Capture one or both of the political parties in the United States.

16. Use technical decisions of the courts to weaken basic American institutions by claiming their activities violate civil rights.

17. Get control of the schools. Use them as transmission belts for socialism and current Communist propaganda. Soften the curriculum. Get control of teachers' associations. Put the party line in textbooks.

18. Gain control of all student newspapers.

19. Use student riots to foment public protests against programs or organizations which are under Communist attack.

20. Infiltrate the press. Get control of book-review assignments, editorial writing, policy-making positions.

21. Gain control of key positions in radio, TV, and motion pictures.

22. Continue discrediting American culture by degrading all forms of artistic expression. An American Communist cell was told to "eliminate all good sculpture from parks and buildings, substitute shapeless, awkward and meaningless forms."

23. Control art critics and directors of art museums. "Our plan is to promote ugliness, repulsive, meaningless art."

24. Eliminate all laws governing obscenity by calling them "censorship" and a violation of free speech and free press.

25. Break down cultural standards of morality by promoting pornography and obscenity in books, magazines, motion pictures, radio, and TV.

26. Present homosexuality, degeneracy and promiscuity as "normal, natural, healthy."

27. Infiltrate the churches and replace revealed religion with "social" religion. Discredit the Bible and emphasize the need for intellectual maturity, which does not need a "religious crutch."

28. Eliminate prayer or any phase of religious expression in the schools on the ground that it violates the principle of "separation of church and state."

29. Discredit the American Constitution by calling it inadequate, old-fashioned, out of step with modern needs, a hindrance to cooperation between nations on a worldwide basis.

30. Discredit the American Founding Fathers. Present them as selfish aristocrats who had no concern for the "common man."

31. Belittle all forms of American culture and discourage the teaching of American history on the ground that it was only a minor part of the "big picture." Give more emphasis to Russian history since the Communists took over.

32. Support any socialist movement to give centralized control over any part of the culture--education, social agencies, welfare programs, mental health clinics, etc.

33. Eliminate all laws or procedures which interfere with the operation of the Communist apparatus.

34. Eliminate the House Committee on Un-American Activities.

35. Discredit and eventually dismantle the FBI.

36. Infiltrate and gain control of more unions.

37. Infiltrate and gain control of big business.

38. Transfer some of the powers of arrest from the police to social agencies. Treat all behavioral problems as psychiatric disorders which no one but psychiatrists can understand [or treat].

39. Dominate the psychiatric profession and use mental health laws as a means of gaining coercive control over those who oppose Communist goals.

40. Discredit the family as an institution. Encourage promiscuity and easy divorce.

41. Emphasize the need to raise children away from the negative influence of parents. Attribute prejudices, mental blocks and retarding of children to suppressive influence of parents.

42. Create the impression that violence and insurrection are legitimate aspects of the American tradition; that students and special-interest groups should rise up and use ["]united force["] to solve economic, political or social problems.

43. Overthrow all colonial governments before native populations are ready for self-government.

44. Internationalize the Panama Canal.

45. Repeal the Connally reservation so the United States cannot prevent the World Court from seizing jurisdiction [over domestic problems. Give the World Court jurisdiction] over nations and individuals alike. ~ [Green means there is proof this has occurred and eventually links will be posted here.]

The evergreen tree is a symbol of the green to come at the re-birth of Mother Earth. In ancient Egypt they laid gifts under Palm Trees during the winter celebration. In ancient Rome they used the fir tree (called the Baal Berith) as a testimony to the Pagan messiah, Baal Tamar.

The Babylonians celebrated the birth of the God Tammuz on the Winter Solstice and God Nimrod would visit the evergreen trees of the people and leave gifts upon them.

The early Christian Church frowned upon the exchange of gifts because of its Pagan origins. People refused to give up the customs of their old Pagan religions, though. Ultimately, around 700 years ago, the Christian Church decided to attribute the gift exchange to symbolize the gifts given to Jesus by the three Wise Men. It took the Church over 1,300 years to finally "borrow" the Pagan ritual of gift exchanging and call it their own.

The Romans and Saturnalia celebrations are even credited with the tradition of kissing under the mistletoe. Mistletoe was used as a means to get a pretty girl to kiss you during the celebration and ultimately instigate an orgy. The Druids in Scotland and Ireland also believed that mistletoe was a symbol of fertility; a husband and wife desiring a child would hang the mistletoe around their bed during intercourse.

The Yule log and Yule Day have Babylonian origins. Yule is the Chaldee name for an infant or little child. December 25th was called Yule Day by Pagan Anglo-Saxon ancestors. The night preceding Yule Day was known as Mother's Night.

The Bible does not tell Christians to celebrate the birth of Jesus. The Bible doesn't even tell us when Jesus was born. Of course we can look for "clues" within the gospels to when Jesus might have been born, and people have done that. The assumption of course is that these "clues" are authentic and not stolen from other Pagan mythology.

When the angels appear to the shepherds of Bethlehem to advise them of the birth of Jesus, the shepherds are feeding their flocks at night in the open fields. From late October to early March in Palestine one will encounter bitterly cold weather, icy rain, and sometimes even snow. Tending the flocks, much less tending them at night, is not what one finds Shepherds doing in Palestine (Bethlehem) in the middle of winter. The climate of Palestine dictates that flocks are in the field at night no later than late-October or mid-November and no sooner than early to mid-March. If we base the birth of Jesus on that clue alone, then Jesus would have been born sometime between March and late October.

It is also interesting to note that the Qur'an in Surah 19 talks about the birth of the prophet Jesus. The mother Maryam shakes the trunk of a palm tree (Qur'an 19:25) so that ripe dates fall upon her. Dates ripen in Palestine in the summer.

The Watchtower in December of 1991 stated, "The date of December 25 does not correspond to Christ's birth but to the feast of the Natalis Solis Invicti, the Roman sun festival at the solstice."

The celebration of Jesus' birth on December 25th did not start until 354 CE when Pope Gregory proclaimed the date as that of The Nativity.. Prior to 354 the Church had even guessed Jesus' birth to be in April. After the Church changed the date to December, there were Christians that refused to worship Jesus' birth in December and continued celebrating it in April. They became known as "April's fools."

Why did the Christian Church change the date to December 25th? They changed it because they were having a difficult time converting Pagans that did not want to give up their celebrations of Saturnalia, Natalis Solis Invicti, and Mithraism (among other winter solstice celebrations). Basically the change was made so Christians could say, "Hey look! We have a party, too!"

Another reason for the change to December 25th was not just to coincide with the five-day Pagan festival but also with Hanukkah. Hanukkah occurs on the 25th day of the Hebrew month of Kislev, which occurs usually in December. So by creating a Christian holiday around the same times as Hanukkah and the winter solstice, the early Christian Church was able to convert Pagans and Jews with the lure of a "grand party" to replace the one that the Pagans and Jews already celebrated.

The Parts Left Out of "Chicago 10"

by Paul Krassner

Abbey Hoffman, Rutgers University, 6 Feb, 1988 ~ Photograph by Chris Nelson

In 1967, Abbie Hoffman, his wife Anita and I took a work-vacation in Florida, renting a little house on stilts in Ramrod Key. We had planned to see The Professionals. "That's my favorite movie," Abbie said. "Burt Lancaster and Lee Marvin develop this tight bond while they're both fighting in the Mexican revolution, then they drift apart." But it was playing too far away, and a hurricane was brewing, so instead we saw the Dino Di Laurentiis version of The Bible. Driving home in the rain and wind, we debated the implications of Abraham being prepared to slay his son because God told him to. I dismissed this as blind obedience. Abbie praised it as revolutionary trust.

This was the week before Christmas. We had bought a small tree and spray-painted it with canned snow. Now, we were tripping on LSD as the hurricane reached full force. "Hey," Abbie yelled over the roar, "this is powerful fuckin' acid!" We watched Lyndon Johnson on a black-and-white TV set, although LBJ was purple-and-orange. His huge head was sculpted into Mount Rushmore. "I am not going to be so pudding-headed as to stop our half of the war," he was saying, and the heads of the other presidents were all snickering and covering their mouths with their hands so they wouldn't laugh out loud. This was the precise moment we acknowledged that we'd be going to the Democratic convention in August to protest the Vietnam war. I called Jerry Rubin in New York to arrange for a meeting when we returned. The conspiracy was beginning.

On the afternoon of December 31, several activist friends gathered at the Hoffmans' Lower East Side apartment, smoking Colombian marijuana and planning for Chicago. Our fantasy was to counter the convention of death with a festival of life. While the Democrats would present politicians giving speeches at the convention center, we would present rock bands playing in the park. There would be booths with information about drugs and alternatives to the draft.

We sought to utilize the media as an organizing tool, but we needed a name so that journalists could have a "who" for their "who-what-when-where-and-why" lead paragraph. An appropriate word to signify the radicalization of hippies. I came up with Yippie to describe a phenomenon that already existed, an organic coalition of psychedelic hippies and political activists. In the process of cross-fertilization at civil rights ralliles and antiwar demonstrations, we had come to share an awareness that there was a linear connection between putting kids in prison for smoking pot in this country and burning them to death with napalm on the other side of the planet. It was the ultimate extension of dehumanization.

And so we held a press conference. A reporter asked me, "What happens to the Yippies when the Vietnam war ends?" I replied, "We'll do what the March of Dimes did when a cure for polio was discovered; we'll just switch to birth defects." But our nefarious scheme worked. The headline in the Chicago Sun-Times read, "Yipes! The Yippies Are Coming!" What would later happen at the convention led to the infamous trial for conspiring to cross state lines to foment riot. As an unindicted co-conspirator, I felt like a disc jockey who hadn't been offered payola.

Flash ahead to 2005. I got a letter from Vanity Fair editor Graydon Carter, and then a call from Brett Morgen, director of The Kid Stays in the Picture. They were co-producing a documentary about the 1960s antiwar movement. It would have no narrator and no talking heads, only archival footage and animated re-enactments based on actual events and transcriptions of trial testimony. However, Allen Ginsberg floating in the while he meditates can be construed as cartoonic license.

Brett invited me to write four specific animated scenes:

1. "Birth of the Yippies": This would include the hurricane, the meeting and the press conference. Excerpt: [The house is shaking mightily on its stilts. ABBIE, ANITA and PAUL are looking out the window through wildly waving curtains as the house feels like it will be swept away. Books are falling off the shelf. Newspapers are swirling around the room.] ABBIE [screaming]: "This whole house is gonna blow straight out to Cuba! [lightning strikes] We're coming, Fidel! [sound of thunder] Sock it to us, God!"

2. "Got Permit?": We meet with Chicago deputy mayor David Stahl, attempting to get a permit for the revolution--that is, permits to sleep in the park, set up a sound system and march to the convention center. Excerpt: STAHL: "C'mon, tell me, what do you guys really plan to do in Chicago?" PAUL: "Did you ever see that movie, Wild in the Streets? [A thought balloon shows the image of a group of teenagers dumping LSD into the water supply.]" STAHL: "Wild in the Streets? We've seen Battle of Algiers. [A thought balloon shows the image of a guerrilla woman, fully covered except for her eyes, planting a bomb in a cafe.]" What would occur in Chicago that summer, then, was a clash between our mythology and their mythology.

(The Chicago Tribune later reported that Bob Pierson--a police provocateur disguised as a biker and acting as Jerry's bodyguard--was "in the group which lowered an American flag" in Grant Park, the incident which set off what The Walker Report: Rights in Conflct would offically label as "a police riot." Pierson wrote in Official Detective magazine, "I joined in the chants and taunts against the police and provoked them into hitting me with their clubs. They didn't know who I was, but they did know that I had called them names and struck them with one or more weapons.")

3. "Acid Testimony": I decide to take a tab of LSD at lunch before testifying--call me a sentimental fool--but why? Excerpt: PAUL: "To enhance the experience. No, actually, because I wanna throw up in court. I've learned that if I drop acid with a big meal, it always makes me vomit. That way, I don't have to memorize all those dates and places. And it'll be my theatrical statement on the injustice of the trial." Abbie was furious and stopped speaking to me. Ten months later, I mailed him a movie ad--The Professionals was playing in our neighborhood--resulting in a reconciliation.

4. "Women's Liberation": The purpose of this scene, taking place at the feminist protest outside the Miss America Pageant in Atlantic City, is summed up by former Yippie Robin Morgan. Excerpt: ROBIN: "And so we say goodbye to the male-dominated peace movement. Women will no longer serve as their second-class comrades. No more working hard behind the scenes while the male superstars do all the grandstanding and get all the credit and achieve all the notoriety. No more playing a critical role in building a movement but then being denied access to the policy-making process."

(The plan was to toss tangible items of male oppression--a bridal gown, a safety razor, a girdle, high-heeled shoes, panty-hose, Playboy magazine, a pink brassiere--and burn them in a "Freedom Crash Can," but an ordinance forbidding anything to be burned on the boardwalk was enforced. Nevertheless, a burning bra has become the symbol of women's liberation. Sometimes a metaphor can serve to reveal the truth more vividly than the actual facts.)

Although Brett "loved, loved, loved" the scenes I wrote, the backers objected to the use of LSD, fearful of diverting attention from the main focus of the film. I was disappointed, if only for the sake of countercultural history. The CIA originally envisioned employing LSD as a means of control; instead, for millions of young people, acid served as a vehicle to explore their own inner space, deprogramming themselves from mainstream culture and living their alternative. The CIA's scenario had backfired. Anyway, my suggestion--instead of referring to it as acid, Abbie could yell, "Hey, this is powerful fuckin' aspirin"--was rejected.

Thus, the hurricane segment of the "Birth of Yippie" scene, which was originally going to open the film, has been omitted, but of course it'll be on the DVD. Moreover, my implied "threat" in the "Got Permit?" scene that the Yippies would pour LSD into the reservoir, plus the entire "Acid Testimony" scene, are also out. And, unfortunately, the "Women's Liberation" scene isn't included because of time restraints.

I was supposed to do the voice for my own animated character, but Abbie's son, Andrew, had auditioned to do his father's voice, and though he sounds eerily like him, he couldn't act, so it was decided to have actors--including Hank Azaria, Mark Ruffalo and Liev Schreiber--do all the voices. What a reIief--I thought it was because I didn't sound enough like myself.

During an interview with Videofreex during the trial, Abbie said, "We don't wanna be martyrs. We wanna live to see the overthrow of the government. Be a great fuckin' movie." Brett's goal isn't quite as ambitious as overthrowing the government. When he called to tell me that his documentary had been selected to open the Sundance Film Festival, he mused, "Wouldn't it be great if Abbie's legacy turns out to be that he helped to end the war in Iraq?"

I hadn't seen any of the rough cuts and didn't know what to expect at the festival screening, but Brett got a standing ovation. Although he was born two months after the protests in Chicago, he had managed--with the aid of 180 hours of film, 50 hours of video, 500 hours of audio and 23,000 pages of trial transcripts--to reveal in this neodoc the horror and the humor, the rhetoric and the reality, of those events and their aftermath, in a style and rhythm calculated to resonate with--and inspire--contemporary youth.

Yippie organizer Jim Fouratt said it "excites the imagination." Nick Nolte, who does the voice of prosecutor Thomas Foran, asked defendant Tom Hayden for his reaction. "I loved it," he said. "I think that Brett authentically and brilliantly captured the experiences and the feelings of what we were going through," Hayden replied. Then, turning to Brett, he added, "So thank you for the next generation from our generation."

Structurally, the film alternates between the action in the streets and the progress of the trial, with the utterly shocking imagery of defendant Bobby Seale--the national chairman of the Black Panther Party, voiced by Jeffrey Wright--being bound, gagged and shackled to his courtroom chair for insisting on his constitutional right to represent himself after being turned down by the Elmer-Fudd-like Judge Julius Hoffman, voiced by Roy Scheider.

I would've liked to see Dick Gregory's fervent recitation of the preamble to the Declaration of Independence at an unbirthday party for LBJ, but I'm grateful for the inclusion of defendant David Dellinger saying "The power of the people is our permit" at the start of the march from the bandstand to the Amphitheater. And I would've liked to hear Phil Ochs' song, "I Ain't Marchin' Anymore," as the background music for that march, but I appreciate the use of Eminem's rap, "Mosh," as accompaniment instead.

In fact, Brett had wanted to call the film Mosh, but Chicago 10 encompasses the eight defendants plus attorneys William Kunstler and Leonard Weinglass. I was afraid people would think it was the ninth sequel to the musical Chicago. Whatever the title, athough Sundance may be a long way from Ramrod Key, the spirit of Yippie lingers on. The defendants were found guilty, but that verdict was overturned by an appeals court judge who, ironically, had been appointed by Lyndon Johnson.

There was another screening a couple of days later, not intended so much for festival-goers as for folks who live in Salt Lake City. I ate a chocolate candy loaded with psilocybin to enhance the experience, unaware that Brett planned to bring me onstage to speak to the audience and then join him in a Q. & A. session. I began with a joke I'd heard there: "A Mormon man decided to go hiking in the beautiful mountains of Utah, but first he stopped to buy some equipment at a Mom and Mom and Mom and Pop store."

One of the questions was, "What advice would you offer to young people today?" My mind was swirling like a multi-colored whirlpool. I assigned my subconscious to come up with an appropriate answer, while I stalled for a moment, leaning on the lectern. "My advice to young people" I repeated, "is, if you go to a restaurant and order a club sandwich, be sure to remove the toothpick before you take the first bite." When my subconscious came through, I said, "Always remember that the political system acts as a buffer between the status quo and the force of evolution."

(Example: In order to get Republican votes for the children's healthcare bill, Democrats agreed to fund $28-million to their abstinence-only program.)

In October 2007, Chicago 10 opened the Austin Film Festival. Brett was unable to attend, so I went there as his proxy. In the morning, I was interviewed on radio station KLBJ. Cartoonist Ethan Persoff (who has put up a website, The Realist Archive Project, posting four issues at a time) had moved to Austin ten years ago, and recalls:

"The metal band Nashville Pussy was being interviewed. The DJ said, 'Next up it's Nashville P--well, what can we say? It's a word we can't say on air that's a synonym for kitten. Welcome to KLBJ.' Right off the bat, a member of the band asks, 'KLBJ--Isn't El B.J. Spanish for blow job?' They must have had the delay button right in the radio booth, because you could hear someone slap something but miss, knocking over a coffee cup or bumping into a microphone. It all got on the air. The DJ cut to a station break too late. Actually, LBJ stands for Lyndon Johnson. KLBJ is owned and controlled by the Johnson family."

I decided to smoke a joint before I left my hotel for the screening that evening. However, I was in a non-smoking room, and there was a notice on the desk: "Should you choose to smoke in a non-smoking room, a $250 cleaning/deodorizing surcharge will be added to your room bill." So I toked it in the bathroom with the door closed, sitting on the tub and exhaling into the toilet. During the Q. & A. session, someone asked if we hadn't provoked the police. Others in the audience berated him.

"Wait," I said, "let him talk. It's a fair question." Focusing on the individual who asked it, I added, "Don't worry, I won't let anybody Taser you." (This was a reference to the incident in September at the University of Florida, where, during a Q. & A. with the speaker, Senator John Kerry, a student peppered him with questions about impeaching George Bush, why he didn't challenge the 2004 election results, and whether he and Bush were in the secret Skull and Bones society as undergraduates at Yale, but he refused repeated requests by other students to leave the microphone after his alloted time was up. University police tried to remove him from the auditorium, and when he resisted, they Tasered him.) "Yes," I answered, "the Chicago police were provoked--by police provocateurs...."

Another question dealt with the comparisons and contrasts between the Vietnam war and Iraq, and what was necessary to challenge the latter.

"Imagination," I replied. "Both wars were both based on lies and and fear-mongering. They both both resorted to euphemisms as a form of disinformation. In Southeast Asia, concentration camps were called strategic hamlets. In the so-called war on terror, torture is referred to as enhanced interrogation techniques....One of the differences is that there was a draft during the Vietnam war. That personalized it, sadly. People wore buttons that said, 'Not With My Body You Don't.' The Bush adminstration deliberately doesn't have a draft now because they know that whatever disconnect there is between the public and the horror that the government is conducting in their name, would dissolve. People would take to the streets in multitudes to demonstrate against the war. When Latinos marched through Los Angeles over the immigration issue, there were a million of them. What we need to do now is hire Mexican workers as guest protesters, so that they can do the job that Americans don't want to do...."

At one point during the Q. & A., I surrendered to an impulse. Pretending that my cellphone was vibrating, I took it out of my pocket and said hello, then told the audience, "It's Rudy Guliani's wife."

While Guliani was speaking before the National Rifle Association in September, his cellphone had rung. "Let's see now," he said to the audience. "This is my wife calling." He pressed the Talk button. "Hello, dear. I'm talking to the members of the NRA right now. Would you like to say hello?...I love you, and I'll give you a call as soon as I'm finished, okay?...Okay, have a safe trip. Bye-bye. Talk to you later, dear. I love you." It seemed like a totally contrived gimmick, a blatant attempt to humanize himself, sucking up to the Republican base by emphasizing family values in the face of two failed marriages and being hated by his own offspring.

The Wall Street Journal estimates that, prior to this staged stunt at the NRA, it could have happened "more than 40 times." Guliani explains that, since 9/11, he and his wife have made a habit of calling each other whenever they get on a plane in order to "reaffirm the fact that we love each other." He admits, "I've been married three times. I can't afford to lose another one. I'm sure you understand." When his cell-phone ploy occurred while speaking to a group of Cuban-Americans in Florida, he said, "I just wanted to see that she was doing okay," adding that his wife was learning Spanish.

Several years ago, I sent the following letter to Hillary Clinton: "I write a column for the weekly New York Press, and I have a question for you. I recall that when you were elected to the Senate, in the wake of the debacle in Florida that led to Bush being in the White House, you promised to do your best to get rid of the Electoral College system. Were you able to get anything going along those lines? If so, what transpired? And if not, what were the obstacles? I would very much appreciate hearing from you." I never received a reply. Clinton was able to fly into the senate on the wings of Rudy Guliani's prostate cancer. If they both were to win in the primaries for the presidential election in 2008, it would be karmic irony if Clinton then won the popular vote but the Electoral College went for Guliani.

In any event, Brett Morgen wanted Chicago 10 to open during this election year, and he was pleased that it was scheduled to open in theaters around the country in February 2008. In Austin, I noticed that another animated re-enactment scene was missing. Abbie Hoffman got arrested one morning for having the word FUCK printed on his forehead with lipstick, an idea borrowed from Lenny Bruce, who had once printed FUCK on his forehead with strips of wet paper towel from a courthouse bathroom, in order to discourage photographers from taking his picture. Abbie might have gotten away with it if only he hadn't tipped his hat to the police who were sitting in their car in front of the house where we were staying, waiting for us to start the day. They followed us to a restaurant, where they asked Abbie to take off his hat, and when he did, they told him he was under arrest.

"It's the duty of a revolutionist to finish breakfast," he replied, but the cops disagreed with his premise. They handcuffed him and proceeded to drag him out of the restaurant, forcing me to eat the rest of his breakfast.

Coffee, Donuts and Weed

by Paul Krassner

United State Cafe - A rose by any other name would smell as sweet
A rose by any other name would smell as sweet,
United State Cafe 1974, New Photos: Here and Here

The irony of the Silly Season in America is that those who contribute to it seem to lack a sense of humor. Here are a couple of cases in point.

The folks at Dunkin' Donuts figured they had made a smart move when they hired Rachael Ray--the host of "30 Minute Meals" on the Food Network plus her own syndicated daytime talk show--to hold a cup of iced coffee in their TV commercials and online ads. Simple enough idea, huh?

But a conservative website, Little Green Footballs, compared the fringed black-and-white scarf Ray was wearing to those typically worn by Muslim extremists.

Next came right-wing blogger Michelle Malkin, asserting that the scarf did in fact resemble a keffiyeh, which, Malkin wrote, "has come to symbolize murderous Palestinian jihad. Popularized by Yasser Arafat and a regular adornment of Muslim terrorists appearing in beheading and hostage-taking videos, the apparel has been mainstreamed by both ignorant (and not-so-ignorant) fashion designers, celebrities, and left-wing icons."

Suddenly Dunkin' Donuts was bombarded with so many calls from reporters seeking a comment that they chickened out and decided to pull the ad, explaining that "the possibility of misperception detracted from its original intention to promote our iced coffee." Laughter had been replaced by fear.

Now everybody wanted to get in the act. A YouTube video titled "Rachael Ray Is a Terrorist" made fun of the controversy, complete with a narrator admitting, "Yes, because when I look at Rachael Ray, I think 9/11."

And on MSNBC's nightly news show, Countdown, Keith Olbermann labeled Dunkin' Donuts as the "Worst Person in the World." He said, "They were as weak as their decaf," and called for public punishment of the chain. "How about this? How about the rest of us boycott Dunkin' Donuts for giving into fascists like Michelle Malkin? And for giving weight to perhaps the most absurd idea the lunatic fringers have ever belched forth--that there are terrorist scarves. Terrorist scarves! Dunkin' Donuts--time to stop buying the donuts."

Rachel Ray will soon present her new recipe for Al Qaediced Coffee.

The other example of severe silliness concerns a town in California called Weed--populaltion, 3,000--named after Abner Weed, who was a state senator a century ago. A small brewery there has been placing a slogan, "Try Legal Weed," on the bottle caps of its beer. Just a harmless joke, right?

Not to the tunnel-vision of the U.S. Treasury Department's Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau. They perceive those three little words to be an invitation to smoke marijuana. So they sent a warning to Vaune Dillmann, the 61-year-old owner of the Mt. Shasta Brewing Company. If he didn't cease and desist, he could be risking fines or sanctions. This threat could conceivably ruin his livelihood.

"This is ludicruous, bizarre," said Dillman, "like meeting Big Brother face to face. Forget freedom of speech and the First Amendment. They are the regulatory gods, a judge and jury all rolled into one. This is a life or death issue for my business."

A spokesperson for the agency tried to justify its position: "We consider it to be a drug reference, and find it to be false and misleading to the consumer in terms of what may or may not be the properties contained within that product."

The mayor of Weed complained, "It's just plain goofy to me the federal government is making so much of a fuss over this. I can sort of understand their point, but it all seems a little overboard."

Under a headline, "Government Is Keeping Us Safe From Bottle Caps," the Record Searchlight, editorialized: "Let's get real. Anyone old enough to legally buy a six-pack is mataure enough not to be dragged into a life of drug-addled debauchery by a message on the bottle cap."

Gas stations sell T-shirts that say "High on Weed"--the town is at an elevation of 3,500 feet--and a placard on the way out of town states, "Temporarily Out of Weed." Dillman's bottled brews include Shastafarian Porter and Mountain High. His "Try Legal Weed" slogan has already appeared on more than 400,000 beer bottle caps. He recently bought another 400,000, and if they can't be used, he'll be out $10,000.

Wait till the government finds out about "This Bud's For You."

The Ten Suggestions
by Paul Krassner, 24 March 2003

Paul Krassner photograph by Chris Nelson
Paul Krassner ~ 12 September 1987, San Francisco, CA ~ Photo: Chris Nelson

1. Stay well-informed and be on the alert for disinformation; besides mainstream media, check out alternative papers and the Internet, especially the international press.

2. Maintain empathy for the motivation of terrorists and sympathizers, bearing in mind that they are victims of their own conditioning.

3. Start saving the world by acting in every aspect of your daily life as though you were a role model for all humankind.

4. Understand and forgive your foibles instead of guilt-tripping yourself.

5. Resist police-state legislation passed in the guise of security.

6. Pro-choice or not, don't abort your inner child.

7. With the stench and sadness of death so much in the air, practice loving those you cherish while they're still alive.

8. Keep feeling hopeful by finding your balance between total despair and the 100th Monkey fable. As Harry Chapin said, "If we don't act like there's hope, there is no hope." And remember, placebos work.

9. Pay attention to Godspin, such as, "I never said Promised Land, I said I'd see what I could do."

10. When eating a sandwich at the delicatessen, be sure to remove the toothpick before taking your first bite.

Restore Tarring & Feathering
Tar & Feathering
for Politicians Caught Lying?

Tarring and feathering is a form of public humiliation and punishment used to enforce unofficial justice or revenge. It was used in feudal Europe and its colonies in the early modern period, as well as the early American frontier, mostly as a type of mob vengeance.

The victim would be stripped naked, or stripped to the waist. Wood tar (sometimes hot) was then either poured or painted onto the person while they were immobilized. Then the victim either had feathers thrown on them or was rolled around on a pile of feathers so that they stuck to the tar.

The image of a tarred-and-feathered outlaw remains a metaphor for severe public criticism.

PPRS ~ Pacific Packet Radio Society Historic, 1st U.S. Wireless Digital Communication

Pacific Packet Radio Society
40th Anniversary

Wireless Digital Communication was introduced (in the United States) by Dr. Hank Magnuski (Co-founder PPRS), when his historic KA6M-1 Digital Packet Radio Repeater began operation on December 10, 1980.

Pacific Packet Radio Society - PPRS - First Packet Radio Repeater - December 10, 1980

Dear Packet Radio Enthusiast,

Thanks very much for the letter of inquiry which you sent me. The response I've received to the initial publicity about the packet repeater has been very enthusiastic, and I have been deluged with requests from hams, both locally and from various points around the country, for more information about the repeater, for schematics, for listings, specifications, modems, proms, SDLC chips, Vancouver boards, and for talks at clubs. Needless to say, all this activity, plus continuing development on the packet hardware and software has kept me very busy, and I apologize for the long delay in responding to your letter. Let me bring you up to date on what has happened, or is happening, since the initial announcement of the repeater, which went on the air in December of 1980.

In the early months of this year, the packet repeater was operating out of my residence, and was still an experimental machine. Since then, we have installed a couple of upgrades to the control software, we have used a better CPU card, increased the power level, moved the repeater to 700 feet elevation, and integrated its operation to be 100% compatible with the protocol used by the Vancouver Digital Communications Group (VADCG). The repeater has changed from being a laboratory curiosity to a major Bay Area repeater heard from Berkeley to south San Jose, and the user community has grown from a couple of stations to a network of some 30 users. The packet system here now has a mailbox on-line 24 hours a day, several on-line personal computers, and network links (courtesy of a commercial packet network) to the other active packet radio centers in Vancouver and Ottawa. We have also just installed an HF port on 20 Meters, and are beginning some experiments aimed at establishing connection with AMRAD in Washington and with equipment located at W1AW.

Most of the original packet radio experiments were done in Canada (in part due to the Canadians' pioneering communications spirit, and in part due to less restrictive regulations up there), and three main centers were at work: Montreal, Ottawa and Vancouver. The technology employed by each of these groups differed, and each approach has its own merits. My thinking and ideas very closely paralleled the work started by Doug Lockhart, VE7APU, and I can best report on what is happening with groups which have adopted HDLC (High-level Data Link Control) framing as the basis of their protocol. The HDLC/ SDLC frame is a new, universally accepted standard in the data communications industry, and Doug and I feel it offers a good starting point on which to build a packet radio network. As it turns out, groups in Washington D.C., Los Angeles, El Paso, Denver, Sacramento, and Hamilton have also taken up this technology, and it is likely that we already have a sufficient number of people using this technique that it will become the defacto standard in the amateur radio community.

It would be impossible for me to completely describe the protocol and equipment being used in this letter, so I will briefly cover some of the topics and give you some pointers on where to find additional information. As you might guess, this is a new area for amateur radio, and tutorial material and handbooks simply do not yet exist. Many issues and problems remain to be discussed, and there is opportunity to make substantial contributions to the state of the art. [Snip] [Continue Reading] - Thanks again for your interest. See you on the net. Best regards, Hank Magnuski, KA6M - [More Papers and History]

On the Heart & Soul of Delaware Rock & Roll, Thursday morning at 8:30am (EST) / 5:30am  (PST) time, we’ll hear selections from a couple more late 1970s rock acts from Delaware, both very different from each other. In the first case it’s music from the late Vic Sadot and his Crazy Planet Band. Very different from the Crazy Planet Band, which played often through the area and cut both singles and LPs into vinyl, was Snuki Tate. We’d already heard from Snuki in earlier incarnations, first as Lonnie and the Crisis, then as lead singer for the Matadors, before turning punk rocker when he’d begun frequenting CBGBs and Max’s Kansas City in NYC in the late 1970s~ Steve

Ministers of Satan: During the First Great Awakening, the "new light" preachers portrayed their "old light" critics as ministers of Satan. By the time of the Second Great Awakening, Satan's primary role in American evangelicalism was as the opponent of the evangelical movement itself, who spent most of his time trying to hinder the ministries of evangelical preachers, a role he has largely retained among present-day American fundamentalists. It is important to remember Evangelicalism manifest during 1738 & Christian_fundamentalism manifest between 1910 - 1920.

The Sacred Clowns ~ Heyókȟa

The Heyókȟa symbolize and portray many aspects of the sacred, the Wakȟáŋ. Their satire presents important questions by fooling around. They ask difficult questions, and say things others are too afraid to say. By reading between the lines, the audience is able to think about things not usually thought about, or to look at things in a different way.

Principally, the Heyókȟa functions both as a mirror and a teacher, using extreme behaviors to mirror others, thereby forcing them to examine their own doubts, fears, hatreds, and weaknesses. Heyókȟas also have the power to heal emotional pain; such power comes from the experience of shame--they sing of shameful events in their lives, beg for food, and live as clowns. They provoke laughter in distressing situations of despair and provoke fear and chaos when people feel complacent and overly secure, to keep them from taking themselves too seriously or believing they are more powerful than they are.

In addition, sacred clowns serve an important role in shaping tribal codes. Heyókȟa's don't seem to care about taboos, rules, regulations, social norms, or boundaries. Paradoxically, however, it is by violating these norms and taboos that they help to define the accepted boundaries, rules, and societal guidelines for ethical and moral behavior. This is because they are the only ones who can ask "Why?" about sensitive topics and employ satire to question the specialists and carriers of sacred knowledge or those in positions of power and authority. In doing so, they demonstrate concretely the theories of balance and imbalance. Their role is to penetrate deception, turn over rocks, and create a deeper awareness.
