##Reminder## Hacking, violence and illegal activities are not to be discussed in this community. We support LEGAL resistance and are working toward PEACEFUL RESISTANCE. Please respect this community. If you see something in violation, please flag thatWTF? If they are hacking and then boasting about it online, why are they discouraging it on their forums? Is it just a technicality to keep their forum within the free speech law? Just asking! I would be careful around Anonymous, simply because of this two-facedness: maybe they are a hacker honey trap set up by the gov. Or they could be a false-flag operation so as to create a fake crisis and then promote the crackdown on internet freedom that they plan as a "solution".

If I ever had a toddler in the house I would let them speak, and babble and sing to their hearts content over the phone.Now, I know that those NSA computers like to listen for keywords. If you talk about foreign affairs or say "the president" or his name, on the phone, your call will get tapped. So you could just use a keyword or two on purpose, just to get the tapes rolling, and then talk utter nonsense or about nothing special, like whether to buy more toilet paper. Since it's wrong to wiretap you, fight back and have fun!
Or, read scripture passages for long stretches!
Give the official listening in the 'Plan of Salvation".
Speak in PIG LATIN!!! Oday ouyay eakspay igpay atinlay???
Our favorite, when calling one another, from the market or some such place, was to speak in Ye'Kwana!!!! This is best done in low, grave voices. Oh the evil codes they must have thought we had invented!!!!! They may have assumed we were discussing the evil empire and its plans to dominate,but we were really just discussing what items we needed from the market!!! He, he!!!
But the most important thing of all is to speak to the officer listening in!!! Say "Hello, how are you? Are you having a nice day?"

1.) Monsanto’s patents are invalid
By law, patents must be new, non-obvious and useful. The suit asserts that not only are GMO’s not useful, but they may actually be harmful to public health, the environment and society as a whole. Moreover, they are obvious since they derive from gene sequencing. The complaint cites a number of studies and cases to support this claim.
2.) Monsanto’s patents are not infringed
Since there is no intention on the part of contaminated farmers to infringe patents, there can be no patent infringement. Instead, contamination is in fact a trespass, causing damage to the affected farmers. The complaint contends that it is “perverse” that farmers whose crops have been contaminated should also be subject to litigation for patent infringement.
3.) Monsanto’s patents are not enforceable
If both previous arguments fail and patents are still admitted by the judge as being valid and infringed, PUBPAT intends to demonstrate that they are not enforceable because they are being misused to gain undue control over the market.
4.) Monsanto is not entitled to any remedy
Since the farmers in the class are seeking to produce only GMO-free crops, and GMO contamination destroys the value of such crops, Monsanto has not lost revenue due solely to the production of the contaminated crops. Consequently, it is not entitled to damages.
More importantly, above this description is the OBJECTIVE, which is “the encouragement of communally and collectively owned and managed land.”What people may not have noticed yet, is that the government agencies in this council are also on other councils. These councils, as well as the individual government agencies, are implementing international laws that have taken effect through Executive Orders, Memorandums of Understanding, agreements and regulations that most Americans don’t even know about. These have bypassed Congress. And, it also seems they have completely bypassed the Constitution."
"People have noticed the 25 government agencies on Obama’s new White House Rural Council. And, they’re questioning what might be the need for all of them.
In March 2010, President Obama signed into law one of the most arrogant, unfeasible bills ever to hit the books.
Known as FATCA [Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act], it was enacted as part of the inappropriately titled HIRE Act; the law requires that foreign banks must disclose personal account details for their US clients, essentially agreeing to get in bed with the US government.
If a foreign bank does not agree to disclose information on all of its US customers, then the law further requires that noncompliant banks withhold a 30% tax on all payments that may have originated from the United States.
The arrogance of this law is overwhelming. It would be as if the Saudi King issued a decree forbidding US grocery store chains to sell pork to Saudi citizens while on US soil. Crazy, right? Americans would be up in arms-- who do those Saudi's think they are, trying to control a US company on US soil?
But that's exactly what FACTA does. Needless to say, the international banking scene has been up in arms since March 2010 when the law was passed. Those cries have largely fallen on deaf ears... until late last week when the US government granted a brief extension for the law to take effect.
