the test of doing what ever actions necessary to insure ones survival, or laying back and in return being converted into worm food.

Havent read through all these posts, but noticed a few "why do I care, gov't doesnt affect me". Thats absolute bullshit and escapism. The majority of goverments let business continously destroy our planet. They make laws dictating where you can and cant sleep, can and cant walk etc etc. They effect the economy and make prices go up, which means more $ you have to spange to buy your damn beer. They tax you for land you 'own'. On the otherhand they manage the roads that you hitch on, the trains that you've hopped on. In an ever increasing security culture the things you value are going to be harder and harder to obtain. I know i'm ranting but still. the "gov't doesnt affect me" bullshit is the same thing I hear from apathetic middle class and upper class people every day. There is a war going on whether you like it or not. Should you lay your life down for 'the cause' though? Fuck no. martyrs are useless. geurilla warfare is where its at.

Escapism? possibly.
The thing is the government can pass all the laws it wants to keep me from sleeping somewhere, walking somewhere etc etc. I'm going to do it anyways, same with most of us. Only difference is I'll be more cautious so I won't have to deal with getting arrested. If I do get arrested, oh well, I got sloppy.
Beer? I can do without really, so I won't need to spange for that. In fact the only time I can think of when I need money is for when I need to buy something that I either need or really want. If that's the case I'll work my ass off until I can get that money somehow, be it from busking or maybe even find a temporary job somewhere.
They can only affect me if I rely on them, which I don't.

At least escapist don't pay into the government's system. If you don't want to pay taxes then don't pay. If you don't want to obey laws then don't obey. I can't put it any simpler then that.

Agreed, you do realize though that if you buy something you're paying sales tax? I mean, thats common sense but I've rarely ever met someone who had never bought anything. We all contribute to the system one way or another, unless you go complete primi, which if you do, I give you props.

How many of you folks on here are willing to put their lives on the line for their beliefs and take up arms against an oppressive government in the name of (R)evolution?
you mean how many people are openly willing to be identified tracked and quickly eleminated if need be by a goverment agency out of situational down syndrome

If your don't want to pay sales tax than just shoplift. theirs always options you don't have to do anything. and I actually don't even consider that money to be given to the government cause I give that money to the private business and if they want to give that money to the government they can but most off the ghetto marts I do business with are probably pocketing that money and screwing the government. If they want to give their hard earned money to the government that's their problem not mine.

they will try to eliminate you in one way or another, no matter what your beliefs are... ie.. the poisoned food and water you consume everyday.

And they still get mad when I don't pay for their poisoned food and water just snatch it like a rat that's to quick for the trap. If the rats have taught us anything is that poison ingested at small amounts increases resistance creating a super rat.

Things haven't gotten bad enough to warrant violent direct action in the name of revolution. Come talk to me when 75% of the US populace has no place to sleep and they have to fight for their daily meal.

that word 'warrant' -- i'm not sure you know what it means. conditions in america certainly do warrant violent direct action; people don't fight because its very easy to conceal/normalize those conditions.

anyone who travels and makes most of their money by panhandling is lying if they don't think they've got it pretty good.

even though you're the one that just said "we have it best than ever in the history of humankind." seems like you just told someone what is or is not good.

i think having a squat and dumpstering food, being against authority, and having a general discontent against america is enough revolting for me... at least until the general population decides to stand up and actually fight back i would be sure to be out there raising havoc. as JFK said 'those who make peaceful revolution impossible will make violent revolution inevitable' and that seems to be where we are heading as a culture.

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $25.00 of $50.00
    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
  2. Buy Matt a Beer
    $25.00 of $75.00
    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully his will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $25.00 of $100.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $25.00 of $200.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.
