OK

Shortly after last year's fiasco of Nov. 2, a bunch of us were sitting around; we were depressed, upset and not sure what to do about it. We decided to brainstorm some ideas about what we could do next. This is what we came up with.

First a caveat, we didn't publish the list at first because it was just for kicks. In re-reading it, it was suggested that we share these ideas with others, because a lot of them are damned funny. Note that this is for entertainment purposes only, we are not suggesting that anyone should actually oppose the Bush Regime. Perhaps by sharing the list, some folks out there in the legal community can help us weed out any ideas that might be legally questionable and help us come up with an action list that we can actually recommend. The following is not a threat, nor is it an incitement for anyone to commit violence. Without further adieu, here is the list, feel free to add your own....

  1. Be Un-Governable.
  2. SCREAM!!!
  3. Wear a black armband to mourn the death of the republic. Tell people why when they ask.

More below... feel free to add your own ideas! Fuck Bush!

4.    Get Out! NOW! At the moment you can probably oppose them as effectively abroad as at home, and you can legally avoid supporting them monetarily with taxes.
5.    Make and use, or sell, a George Bush piñata. It will be the hit of your party! Invite everyone! Use them publicly too, fill them with IOUs, bad apples, chickenguts, whatever you want!
6.    Make freeway signs and post them. Remember the Burma Shave signs back in the day? Several in a well-timed row tell a clever story.
7.    Wire $100 to a random Cuban.
8.    Shave your head and wear prison stripes. Do it now while it's still a choice.
9.    Destroy your television, no excuses or exceptions! This would scare the crap out of them if they lost access to millions of people suddenly.
10.    Defend your privacy fiercely.
11.    Protest frequently, use BIG visuals.
12.    Report suspicious conservatives to the authorities.
13.    Publicly hang a Lady Liberty dummy to make a point, or gag her and burn her at the stake. Tell folks why.
14.    The media are corrupt, undermine their credibility. Ridicule anyone who watches or reads them.
15.    Throw red paint on anything federal.
16.    Hang your flag upside down (a sign of distress), or fly the "Don't Tread On Me" flag.
17.    Collect and destroy all printed government material.
18.    Inspire fear among opponents. They are paranoid and hypersensitive to criticism. They project their own characteristics onto others, so they think the resistance is a highly organized conspiracy with specific leaders and a specific agenda. Be a highly decentralized force with few common goals aside from defeating the fascists. Create fear in the leadership, when people are fearful they make mistakes.
19.    Take money out of US dollars. Buy foreign stocks , gold and Euros. Withdraw savings. Use foreign banks wherever possible.
20.    Refuse to obey federal laws.
21.    Destroy newspapers.
22.    Occupy federal buildings, block roads.
23.    "Miss" in federal restrooms, especially a number two!
24.    Hang George Bush in effigy in public parks etc. Call the media, (or even the police!) when you do. It's like creating many small fires (euphemistically, not literally) if authorities see LOTS of this stuff frequently, they will begin to lose their grip.
25.    Put a sign in your front yard.
26.    Carry a Lady Liberty dummy off in a casket, bury her and hold a funeral. Call the press, and do it in a high profile place.
27.    Get arrested.
28.    Create distractions, lots of little fires so that the authorities are spread thin, and panic.
29.    Hang anti-Bush banners from your boat. Anchor it where lots of folks can see it.
30.    Sell George Bush targets.
31.    Post a fake headstone in a real cemetery. Say "Here Lies Freedom  1776-2000".
32.    Boycott American products until freedom is restored.
33.    Rent billboards, they are not as expensive as tyranny and slavery.
34.    Use the Internet effectively.
35.    Buy progressive magazines.
36.    Don't get distracted by false or distorted issues. The tyrants have mastered the art of distraction when things go bad, so don't let it work for them.
37.    Do not use any type of media that supports fascism. If they can't reach you, they starve.
38.    File 1000's of tax returns from fictitious people. The IRS is computerized, it would take years to sort out if done well.
39.    Take all tax returns from local post offices and burn them.
40.    Write to all politicians... constantly! Do it in your own words.
41.    Post pictures of dead children from Fallujah.

420.     Cast a spell on Bush.

505.    Know where your national guard armory is. Tell `em what you think.
506.    Inspire hope.
507.    Attend a livestock auction, deposit herds of inexpensive livestock at downtown locales. This is especially good the night before a big event. Chickens are hilarious, and greased pigs are magnificent! Cows block traffic well, but tend to be expensive. Decorate the animals for extra effect.

517.    Listen to old Phil Ochs songs. Play them for others.
518.    Paint snowy hillsides next to roads.
519.    Give the police a reason to arrest you when in large groups - coordinate. For instance, drink beer at a demonstration - the police's authority is undermined if they let you get away with it, yet they can't arrest ALL of you if everybody is doing it. They will try to make someone an example, so expect it, and don't let it scare the rest of you. If they tell you to dump it, refuse. If they ask you to leave, refuse. Be an example.
520.    Take it easy on cities where the cops have been fair (for example, Tampa). Be merciless on cities where the cops have been brutal, for example Oakland. The cops aren't the real enemy anyhow, but rather the unfortunate mediary between you and the government. If the police can't control you, then neither can the government, and Bush knows it.
521.    Feed birds outside a federal building. Anything even vaguely disorderly upsets the poindexters, so upset them! When one person gets hassled have others question it, or join in. Make them feel like they are losing control (they are!).

523.    Get people talking.
524.    Undermine authority, destroy legitimacy, and make them feel helpless.
525.    Walk around with duct tape over your mouth.
526.    Handcuff yourself to a public official. Make a citizen's arrest.
527.    Ride bicycles, slowly, and in large groups through congested downtown areas. If you keep moving you're not blocking traffic.
528.    Chain thoroughfares when necessary, two high security bike locks and a heavy chain should do.
529.    Publicize "secret evidence" and information about "secret trials".
530.    Blow whistles, protect and help others who do.
531.    Be willing to risk losing your job, your home, your freedom, and maybe more.
532.    Build illegal structures.
533.    Fight City Hall.
534.    Disappear.
535.    Reappear where you're not welcome.
536.    Raise Hell.

556.    Support mutineers.
557.    Alter road signs.
558.    Skate where it's not allowed.
559.    Hold public "funerals" for Liberty. Give fitting eulogies.
560.    Cast your own feet in a large container of concrete. It will be difficult to arrest or disperse you. Have a plan to get free or be moved.
561.    Vomit at your table in cafeterias that serve federal employees. Make a scene, clear the place. It's not illegal to be sick (see syrup of ipecac).
562.    Always ask to talk to your lawyer. Never admit anything to the cops, even if they have you pegged. Deny everything and ask to see your lawyer. If you don't have a lawyer, pretend you do (you will).
563.    Offer legal services to the Resistance.
564.    Pay for things in pennies.
565.    Duct tape yourselves to each other in large, complex clusters. Scream like hell if anyone is touched by a cop.
566.    Hold demonstrations in shopping malls. Security will be called, and you may be barred, but it gets wide attention fast and keeps them on their toes. Being barred from the premises is pointless if you're from another city.
567.    Politicize everything.
568.    When cornered, say you "don't remember". Then you can always change your story later if you "remember". If it's good enough for Janet Reno, it's good enough for you.
569.    Go way too far!
570.    Shock and amaze!
571.    Dancing and drumming make them nervous.
572.    Let them herd cats.
573.    Get away from this computer and engage the outside world more. Meet people.
574.    Make waves.
575.    Expose lies, and don't let others repeat them uncontested.
576.    Sandbags are as labour intensive to remove as they are to place.
577.    Leak!
578.    Insist that the federal government follow the same rules that it places upon you, especially with regard to lying.
579.    Master fear.
580.    Get people to read blogs.
581.    Hold up signs with easy to read URLs of Resistance websites. Try to get behind a TV journalist.
582.    Never forget.
583.    Pass this list along.
584.    Come up with some tactical ideas of your own, and pass them on to others.

Remember though, this list is for entertainment purposes only! Don't really do this stuff until you check it out with an attorney first...
