  1. He sounds like a Politician still. I mean, one I would vote for, if I lived in his area. But he still has that kind of a voice. Its a “leadership” type voice. It hasn’t worn off yet. I wish him well in his new incarnation as activist/journalist. But I have a feeling he will go for it again. He probably should.

    • Leadership isn’t exactly inherently a bad thing. Its what you’re leading towards that matters…

      • …which is what my point was. If I was in some group David Seamen stood up and started speaking. I would be like “Oh, this guy seems to be in charge, better listen to what he has to say.” He just kind of has that way about him.

        As far as being a perpetual outsider, and kind of playing the devil’s advocate with things, giving people in power shit all the time, which is kind of how I imagine true journalists to be, I don’t see it in him as much. I think he needs to be in the spot light, giving orders, defending the powerless, standing up for principles, things like that.

        From where I am standing, his calling seems to be “leader.”

    There’s this big push to file state & fed. taxes on-line.
    No more mailing forms, if you want ’em , print ’em yourself.
    I went to submit my state taxes on-line and the system would not accept my zip+4.
    kept telling me it was incorrect for my address. Go no further.

    FOR THE LOVE OF GOD, if this is the way things are playing out using the miracle of the Web,
    we’re screwed.

    has not 911 & the internet not clearly shown
    that a lot of accurate info/data/facts
    has no impact of the status quo & it’s information managers?

    the real revolution is not an overthrow or even reform of the system
    but a withdrawal from it
    and innovating something new

    • Yep, and that tactic has the benefit of being legal as long as you pay taxes and what-not.

      • But paying taxes and what-not implies not withdrawing completely. Tacit consent is still given through the use of their money. Risks are there if you want to settle on a piece of dirt for a while without giving pieces of coloured paper to some arbitrary fuck for it, but some people are in a better position to do this than others. It really does suck, when you think about it, though. The parasitic system uses our own social instincts against us. You’ve got to avoid interacting with others lest you be sucked into the system for just being social. It’s collective insanity, really.

        • What?
          The only way to survive without suckin Bab’s tit is to work together and help each other out. I mean, some people can do it on there own, and I say, more power to them, but it’s easier and more fruitful to work together.
          As for taxes, fuck, it’s just paper. Sure, it took a bit of labor to get, but you pour hot coals on your enemies’ heds. And if you worry about supporting the death machine, your few pennies ain’t much to them. Pay your taxes, stay out of jail, and shit on the ground for gods sake(or pay your real taxes as I call it), you’ll do more good than harm.

        the nice thing about withdrawal is
        it’s easy to stay under the radar
        and it’s easy to find places where the radar is weak
        that’s usually where the herd is thinnest or impoverished
