These include:

1. Ohio, Federal, and other election litigation.2. Recalling Ahrnold the Terminated.3.Voter initiatives on redistricting, in California and elsewhere.4. Voting reform initiatives in California, Ohio, Florida, andelsewhere.5. Initiatives to expand the initiative and referendum power and forrecall, in Ohio, Florida, and elsewhere.6. If no state has initiatve powers, lobby the legislatures for suchpowers (but New York also automatically has every 20 years forvoters to vote on whether a constitutional convention should beheld; we should campaign for yes, and get our supporters elected topropose and vote for such powers.)7. Contesting licenses before the FCC and media boycotts.8. Eliminating the Electoral College.9. The equal vote amendment.10. Rail to passenger safety.11. Universal Health Care.12. Raising the Minimum Wage.13. Eliminating outsourcing.14. Defending immigrant rights.15. Stopping the War in Iraq, AND NO DRAFT.16.

Creating more states.18. Seccession.

The group will also change its name to Grassroots-CA-OH-FL. Grassroots would like first concentrate on recalling Gov. Schwarzeneggar, and circulate initiatives as to voting reform first, but within the next two years, it expects that most of goals would be accomplished.

New Fahrenheit 9-11 Fans Site

My page was created as a resource page to download the film "Fahrenheit 9-11". The reason why the page was created was for two purposes:

1. To educate all voters that George Benedict Arnold Bush and Dick "Go Fuck Yourself" Cheney are abysmal failures on the Planet Earth for conspiring with the Saudis to bomb the World Trade Center, the Pentagon, and the Capitol, and then use that as an excuse to invade Iraq.

2. To provide a forum for places in the World, including the so-called United States of Amerika, where certain assholes do NOT want them to see "Fahrenheit 9-11".

If you are able to see it, please go to the theater (or theatre, if you're from England, Canada, etc.). and plunk US $7-10 or the equivalent, and make Michael Moore happy. Please, this is to be fair. If I made a film, I would like to make some money, too.
"Fahrenheit 9-11" is to make a statement that Bush and Cheney need to be impeached yesterday, and otherwise defeated from office.

Unlike a parliamentary system, The President and Vice President are elected by the Electoral College. No, it is not a school or university, but a body of electors chosen by the political parties in each state. The number of electors is equivalent to the State's two Senators, and the number of Representatives or Congressmen (the rough equivalent of MP's; bills are still sent to the Senate and can be defeated there as well as in the House of Representatives) from that State. There are 50 States, and a total of 538 Electors (Washington DC, is constitutionally entitled to 3 Electors), and 270 Electors are necessary to win. If nobody gets 270 Electors, then according to the Twelfth Amendment, the Vice President can be elected by a minimum of 51 Senators, and the President can be voted by the House with the approval of 26 House Delegations, not individual Members. If there are no 26 or more Delegations, the House Speaker is the Acting President until there are 26 House Delegations.

Instead of "turning the Election to the House", Bush asked his Daddy's Justices on the U. S. Supreme Court to permanently stop all review of the unconstitutional violations that occurred in Florida, and he became President. Moore makes mention of this in this movie.

To see the movie, try to go to the theater first. You don't need to buy theater food. You can go to a restaurant, or if it's late, try to go to a Denny's, Del Taco, or Dairy Queen (US only, I don't know if there diners or pubs that serve food late elsewhere). Then download the movie here.

First, download Azureus. You need it to properly download the .torrent file. The creators of Azureus would like to have a donation.

Second, download the Fahrenheit 9-11 torrent. After that is done, you still need to further process the download by using Azureus to open and further download the Fahrenheit 9-11 torrent. It is a 3.1 GB file after it is done.

Third, you probably need a DVD burner for sure to put the files on a readable DVD disc, and then the movie can be viewed. I'm not sure if it can be burned to CD. Please consult a knowledgeable computer techie for this.

Please use the movie as a "teach-in" and GOTV tool. The movie is great for Meet-Ups, House parties, tent revivals, schools, libraries, etc.; please, freely distribute it-PASS IT ON!

Good news! I just made the L. A. Times

Good news! I got in the Times (L. A., that is)! [I got this story by self-Googleing, and I heard it Marty Kaplan's show on Air America.] There's only two errors, Grand Terrace is in San Bernardino County, and I was involved in the Baldwin Park Recall of 1987, and the Bell Gardens Recalls of 1991 and 1999.

INSIDE POLITICS

Minister's Remark Fires Up a Flock of Lawmakers

May 31, 2004

There've been a lot of Polaroid moments under the state Capitol dome: the Black Panthers toting guns into the Assembly in 1967, the porn-star lobbying assault of 1996, and now, the Apronista Revolt.

Some Democratic state senators showed up wearing Betty Crocker couture to show how offended they were when an evangelical minister who tends his flock on the Capitol premises pronounced female legislators who leave their children at home to work in Sacramento to be "sinful."

Among the apron-stringers was Richard Alarcon of Sun Valley. His apron (from the Kitchen Anorexic line?) read: "You can never be too rich or too thin," which sounds like a campaign slogan for the man Alarcon hopes to unseat next year, L.A. Mayor Jim Hahn.

The Assembly weighed in on the matter a day later and a letter short. Members of both genders and both parties pasted on round white stickers with the letter M, for working mothers. A few stuck them on upside down, evidently thinking it was meant to be a W, for women.

Pastor Ralph Drollinger's April 26 memo to the Legislature and staff hung the "sinful" label not only on legislative mothers but on all working mothers. It "contradicts God's revealed design for them. It is sin." (Paging Ms. Shriver, working mother.)

A woman, Drollinger wrote, is scripturally and specifically "prohibited from leadership in the institutions of marriage, family and church."

"She is not explicitly prohibited from leadership in government or commerce — that is, so long as she does not have children at home." Otherwise, it's a sin.

Wonder what kind of turnout there will be for Drollinger's next "Women Legislators Bible Study" class?

Schwarzenegger Hums a Conservation Tune

You always figured from his movies that he had chutzpah.

Here's the proof. Arnold Schwarzenegger issued a memo advising "fellow California state workers" on how to conserve gasoline as part of a "Flex Our Power … at the Pump" campaign.

"I am calling on you, the state's work force, as well as California businesses, local governments and nonprofit organizations, to commit to a series of actions that will reduce fuel use. We can keep California rolling by making common-sense changes in the ways we use fuel," the memo read.

It's all standard owner's manual and driver's ed stuff: keep enough air in the tires, don't speed, "accelerate smoothly and break gradually." (That's the spelling, "break.")

Pretty bold stuff, coming from the first civilian to own a Hummer. But he has cut down from at least half a dozen Hummers to a mere three.

Maybe with enough air in the tires, some slow driving and gradual braking, the top-of-the-line Hummer would get, oh, 12 miles to the gallon.

Something New Under the O.C. GOP Tent

The new GOP anthem in Orange County must be "Kumbaya."

After 20 years under the right — the very right — hand of party Chairman Tom Fuentes, the new party chief, Scott Baugh, is making the tent bigger.

A bigger tent for bigger-money people, at least.

He appointed Frank P. Greinke to head the party's finance committee. Greinke is a founding member of the New Majority, the rich Orange County moderates who have become the biggest GOP rainmaking group in California.

He Wants to Recall 'the Austrian Meatball'

Ready to rumble, again? A Riverside County man, a veteran of local recalls, already has 64 people signed on to his next recall target:

Arnold Schwarzenegger or, as Hank Ramey calls him, "the Austrian meatball."

The way the self-styled "liberal progressive activist" Ramey sees it, Schwarzenegger's campaign hoodwinked and double-talked its way into office, blaming Gray Davis for matters beyond his reach.

"If they wished to blame Davis for the bad economy and the energy crisis," Ramey says, "they might as well blame Davis for the stock market crash of 1929, the crucifixion of Jesus and for tempting Eve to bite the forbidden fruit."

He's not new to the recall game, having played in the Baldwin Park and Bell Gardens recalls of 1991 and 1999.

This time, his signatories so far include his father, sister, brother-in-law and some friends who run a restaurant in Paramount.

Ramey is thinking about making it a virtual class-action recall, rounding up any state Supreme Court justices who rule against gay marriage, and Democratic Atty. Gen. Bill Lockyer, who took the gay marriage issue to the court and even voted for Herr Meatball.

Points Taken

• The city flier invited small businesses to learn how to do business with the city of Los Angeles, but with the investigations into pay-to-play allegations in the mayor's office, perhaps the choice of words and images wasn't the best. Above images of stacks of money was this question: "Would you like to learn how to do business with the City of Los Angeles?"

• Nearly 20 years after Clint Eastwood served as spokesguy for Take Pride in America — delivering the message, "Bad guys abuse public land. Good guys save it" — he's doing it again. Eastwood joined some award-winning fifth-graders in spiffing up three acres of parkland in the Santa Monica Mountains. The Take Pride group encourages volunteers to improve public land.

• Guerrilla political poster guy Robbie Conal — whose merciless caricatures of public figures have been plastered across L.A. and other cities for a couple of decades — has rolled out his next campaign, a trio of George W. Bush caricatures, to be plastered eventually from California to the political conventions in Boston and New York.

• It's the next best thing to a campaign consultants' hall of fame. L.A.-based Joe Cerrell gets a lifetime achievement award from the American University's Campaign Management Institute. Among the laureates, Ronald Reagan's campaign guru, Stu Spencer. (How good is Cerrell at this PR stuff? Hey, he sent out his own press release on this.)

You Can Quote Me

"This is one of the nosiest legislatures I've run into. We've got big problems in this state to worry about. Whether or not people light a cigarette in the car is not one of them."

— Republican Assemblyman Ray Haynes of Murrieta, lambasting a bill that would have made it an infraction for adults to smoke when there is a child in the vehicle. Quoted in the San Francisco Chronicle. The bill was stubbed out by the Assembly.

Who are the REAL TRAITORS, and we should disabuse the public from believing the F-x Propaganda Channel

Why did I make this post. There are too many Freeper Ass Trolls in the Anti-Bush and Pro-Recall Yahoogroups who believe in everything the Fux Propaganda Channel tells them, and then the Pro-Bush and Pro-Arnold Trolls come in and act like they have some constitutional right to be off-topic, post views contrary to the views of the group, and demand that we accept their bull shit as facts!

First, you have no right to post contrary to the message boards' goals. I cannot go to the Pro-Bush, and Pro-Arnold Yahoogroups, and expect to be heard as the truth, and of course, they would call me a "Freeper Ass Troll", "Traitor", AND WORSE. If you're going to post to a Anti-Bush and/or a Pro-Recall Yahoogroup, and unless the moderators say otherwise, DON'T POST IF YOU'RE PRO-BUSH OR PRO-ARNOLD.

Second, I am for undocumented aliens getting driver's licenses. The people who are opposed to "illegal" aliens, are actually against all Latinos, unless you're friendly with these Cuban-Americans. The thing is that Whites feel threatened by others they don't want to understand. They see Latinos at hospitals, schools, and welfare lines, thinking that "they're getting welfare, free schooling, free medical care; they're taking our jobs, and they will over our City Councils, etc." The problem is that:

a. Most of them are documented aliens, and are entitled to receive these services.

b. Others are bona fide U. S. citizens. It should be noted that the Southwest U. S. used to be part of Mexico, and that some Latinos have ancestors who were here when the Spanish and Mexicans ruled over the Southwest. Then there are those who have been sworn in as U. S. Citizens, and they and their American-born children are entitled to those services, as well. If some do cause trouble, and some do are U. S. Citizens.

c. Taking jobs? What jobs? Bush is sending our jobs overseas to places like India, Phillipines, Red China, Thailand, Cambodia, etc. They're getting paid 50 cents an hour, and they get no union and health benefits. They can't protest the environmental abuses or the denied right to form a union! Bush has been giving away the family store, and his supporters blame undocumented Latinos. I don't see a lot of Whites eager to apply for jobs picking lettuce, busing tables, taking care of other people's babies, etc. So what's there to bitch? Blame Bush for jobs going to Red China, not Latinos!

Third, who are the real traitors? Those at 1600 Malacanang Palace in Washington, DC, are those who betrayed the country! George Bush, Dick Cheney, Colin Powell, Donald Rumsfeld, Karl Rove, Paul Wolfowitz, John Asscroft, George Tenet, etc., were all responsible for relying on SPIES, such as Ahmad Chalibi and his Iraqi National Congress, spies for the Islamic Republic of Iran. Our troops found no WMD's, and no uranium. Iraqis are shooting and killing our troops, not "greeting us with open arms". Before these right wing Freeper Ass Trolls call me or those in favor granting driver's licenses, it is their friendsy wendsies at 1600 Malacanang Palace that have betrayed the country, not me!

A Solution. We should all vote for Kerry for President. Then, Kerry should fire Michael Powell's ass at the Federal Communications Commission. Then, Kerry, the FCC, and Congress (Both Houses must be Democratic) should eliminate all of these media monopolies! We don't need ABC, CBS, NBC, FUX, and radio networks like Clear Channel not covering liberal viewpoints, and impose their corporate right wing bull shit! These Freeper Ass Trolls rely on FUX and Clear Channel bull shit everyday. Of course, the FCC is constitutionally powerless to control the FUX Propaganda Channel, CNN, CNBC, and MSNBC, but those who receive A BROADCAST LICENSE, should all be reviewed to see if they are acting in the PUBLIC INTEREST!

As for the Freeper Ass Trolls, e-mail bomb their e-mail accounts! They're racists! They're a bunch of Nazis, and I'm sick and tired of them posting their off-topic shit on the Yahoogroups! Their e-mail addresses are:

You underestimate the danger this poses, to issue driver's licenses
to all people with a pulse. This is a legal document used to
identify citizens for the privilege of driving. There are other
means of identifying yourself without having a driver's license.
You are advocating diluting the safety of United States citizens
with this ill advised support. This is a hair's breadth, if that,
from treason. I'll get my SS uniform and escort you to the nearest
federal pen, Herr Ramey. There you may wax philosophic about what
could be and should be, and maybe even hook up with other
sympathetic minds.

What Happened to recallarnoldwatch?

Today, I noticed that there is no recallarnoldwatch. Why? We don't have the freepers like John Murphy and his aliases, or Misty Fantasy, Neil Slocomb, Lanky, Jim/Jack Ziegler, or some other Freeper Troll. Why?

Until I get authoritative answers, I like to tell everybody that the Recall of the Governator is not the least bit over or is giving out its last gas. There are two sets of issues that will arrivw within the next three months OR LESS- the Budget and the Gay Marriage case before the California Supreme Court. To start to prematurely write the obituary of the Recall effort would be a GREAT disservice to the people of this State, knowing full well that it was and is a Republican effort to screw up the State and attempt to use it as a Republican Beachhead for the Liar-in-Chief of the Millenium.

Bush and Arnold will be defeated in November 2004.This Country will survive and we will have a tremendous recovery once again under President Kerry.

As for the Gay Marriage Group, I don't know why my posts are not being posted. Ahrnold's hand-picked California Supreme Court may well be likely TO BAN GAY MARRIAGES, based on Republican Dogmas, and Mantras, instead of what the law says, dating back to 1972. It is imperative that all Gay Rights groups be mobilized to not only recall Ahrnold, but, if there is any, the Anti-Gay Marriage Majority on the California Supreme Court.

READ THIS, I'LL LAUNCH THE IMPEACH ARNOLD YAHOOGROUP IN A FEW MINUTES (BTW, a violation of the Political Reform Act of 1974 is a misdemeanor):

FPPC Should Investigate Schwarzenegger’s Initiative Advertisements & $2 Million Transfer, Group Says
Advertisements Fail to Disclose True Source of Funding
Santa Monica, CA -- Governor Schwarzenegger's campaign to pass Propositions 57 and 58 illegally circumvents voter approved campaign finance law in order to hide the true source of donors, according to a complaint from consumer advocates to the California Fair Political Practices Commission (FPPC). The nonprofit, nonpartisan Foundation for Taxpayer and Consumer Rights (FTCR) asked the FPPC to review the funding practices of Schwarzenegger's committees and ensure that future advertisements comply with the law.

State law requires that ballot initiative advertisements clearly state the major economic or special interest that is funding the advertisement. Advertisements in support of Proposition 57 and 58 (the bond and budget initiatives) state that major funding for the campaign is provided by Governor Schwarzenegger's California Recovery Team. According to FTCR's complaint, the Recovery Team committee, which has transferred $2 million to the Yes on 57 & 58 committee, has not properly identified its funding sources, primarily banking and development interests, insurance companies, hi-tech, media and energy interests. As a result, the public is being misled to believe that the funding for the campaign is Governor Schwarzenegger rather than the interests who have actually contributed to the campaign.

According to the complaint, Governor Schwarzenegger is using his committee structure "to launder campaign dollars into the "Californians for a Balanced Budget -- Yes on 57 & 58" committee in such a fashion that the source of funding for the ballot measures promoted by the Governor is hidden from the public. By taking these evasive actions, Governor Schwarzenegger has violated those sections of the Political Reform Act that require committees to reveal to voters the true source of funding behind a ballot measure."

The group also warned that Governor Schwarzenegger might be conspiring to continue this deception with a New York fundraiser in support of the ballot measures scheduled for February 24th. That fundraiser, at the home of Robert Wood Johnson IV, heir to the pharmaceutical giant Johnson & Johnson fortune, has been described as an opportunity for donors to become a co-chair of Schwarzenegger's California Recovery Team by contributing an unprecedented $500,000 in support of the ballot measures. FTCR is asking the FPPC to ensure that the campaign in support of Proposition 57 & 58 identifies the major funding sources regardless of which committee actually receives the donation.

FTCR, which has not taken a position on the initiatives, noted that Governor Schwarzengger may fear that revealing the true source of financial support may undermine the initiatives. Under the campaign finance law, a more appropriate tagline to advertisements promoting propositions 57 & 58 would read: "Sponsored by Californians for a Balanced Budget - Yes on 57 & 58; a coalition of banks, developers, insurance companies and energy firms. Major funding from American Sterling Corporation and Paul Folino, CEO of Emulex corporation."

"Disclosure laws exist to ensure that voters know which special interests are funding an initiative," said Carmen Balber of FTCR. "Just because the voters might think twice when they see who is really behind a ballot measure does not justify the Governor's deceptive fundraising tactics."

"Governor Schwarzenegger's California Recovery Team" has been utilized by Governor Schwarzenegger to launder campaign dollars into the "Californians for a Balanced Budget -- Yes on 57 & 58" committee in such a fashion that the source of funding for the ballot measures promoted by the Governor is hidden from the public. By taking these evasive actions, Governor Schwarzenegger has violated those sections of the Political Reform Act that require committees to reveal to voters the true source of funding behind a ballot measure.

1) Governor Schwarzenegger controls ballot measure committee #1261406, "Governor Schwarzenegger's California Recovery Team," which was opened on December 13, 2003.

The "Recovery Team" committee has received contributions totaling $4,036,741 from 94 donors. These contributions include five donations of $250,000 each from banking firm American Sterling Corporation, the high tech Emulex Corporation, builder William Lyon Homes, developer Castle and Cooke, media mogul Jerry Perenchio and retired private investor William Robinson.

Government Code Sec. 84504 requires "Any committee that supports or opposes one or more ballot measures shall name and identify itself using a name or phrase that clearly identifies the economic or other special interest of its major donors of fifty thousand dollars ($50,000) or more in any reference to the committee required by law, including, but not limited, to its statement of organization filed pursuant to Section 84101."

Governor Schwarzenegger has violated Section 84504 by failing to indicate the economic or special interests of the contributors to the committee in the name: "Governor Schwarzenegger's California Recovery Team." This name conceals the large business and corporate interests -- including the finance, real estate, technology and entertainment lobbies -- which have donated to the "Recovery Team" committee.

2) Governor Schwarzenegger also controls the ballot measure committee #1261936, opened on January 14, 2004, and named "Californians for a Balanced Budget -- Yes on 57 & 58."

"Yes on 57 & 58" has received $2,085,000 from 5 donors. $2 million, the vast majority of the committee's funds, was transferred to the committee by "Governor Schwarzenegger's California Recovery Team."

Government Code 84503 requires "Any advertisement for or against any ballot measure shall include a disclosure statement identifying any person whose cumulative contributions are fifty thousand dollars ($50,000) or more."

Campaign ads just released by the committee indicate that they are "Paid for by Californians for a Balanced Budget Yes on 57 & 58. Major funding provided by Gov. Schwarzenegger's California Recovery Team." By funding "Yes on 57 & 58" through money transfers from the "Recovery Team," Governor Schwarzenegger has violated the requirements of Government Code Sec. 84503. Indicating that major funding to the "Yes on 57 & 58" committee came from the "Recovery Team" makes it look as though the initiative is paid for by Schwarzenegger himself, rather than revealing the true source of campaign cash -- the corporate donors to the "Recovery Team."

3) This matter is particularly urgent because the Governor has announced a fundraiser on February 24 to raise money for Propositions 57 & 58. The minimum donation at this event is $50,000 and top donors, at $500,000, will be given the title of "Co-Chair" of the California Recovery Team. It can only be assumed that Governor Schwarzenegger intends to continue his pattern of raising money into the "Recovery Team" committee and then transferring those funds to "Yes on 57 & 58." Timely action is required to stop the imminent recurrence of this violation of the Political Reform Act, as described above.

GRAND TERRACE, Calif.-A Grand Terrace liberal progressive activist who has been involved in local recalls elsewhere will serve Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger today by Certified Mail the Notice initiating his recall.

Hank Ramey, who was involved in the 1987 Baldwin Park Recall, and the Bell Gardens recalls of 1991 and 1999, was incensed after Schwarzenegger won the election to succeed Gov. Gray Davis, who was recalled in October 2003.

Part of the original reasons why Ramey and 64 other people who want to recall Schwarzenegger was not only because of the previous allegations of sexual harassment, but also he was aided by biased conservative talk radio hosts, especially two "juveniles" John Kolbalt and Ken Champeau of KFI-AM.

"I call those two juveniles, Noballs and Shampoopoo", Ramey said, "is because they claim to present 'real news' and 'facts', when they use their show to bash Latinos, actively campaign for Arnold. They actively distorted the issues, and assisted the right wing wackos from the Pete Wilson Administration in electing this Austrian meatball."

Ramey also refers to the controversy involving Davis' attempt to grant undocumented aliens drivers' licenses. "Why deny them a license? Because of their skin color? If citizens and resident aliens can drive, why can't they?"

Ramey credits fellow recall proponent Jack Gerritsen, who used to pass out his "Viva La Revolucion" leaflets in front of the Mexican consulate, and currently transmits his messages of peace and being against the war through amateur radio, with the fact that why undocumented aliens cross the U. S. Border with Mexico is because of the corrupt economy and the corrupt governments at all levels in Mexico. "Why should Mexicans earn 50 cents an hour in Mexico?!" Ramey exclaimed.

Ramey also blames Kobalt, Champeau, the other talk radio hosts, and the former Wilson Administration officials, as well as former Gov. Pete Wilson, with distorting who was to blame for the State economic downturn and the energy crisis. While recall proponents blamed Davis for the mess, the Recall Arnold proponents rightfully blame President Bush for the downturn, and both Bush and Wilson for starting the energy crisis, which was initiated by Bush when he was Texas Governor, along with Bush's energy company allies, such as now-bankrupt Enron.

"If they wished to blame Davis for the bad economy and the energy crisis, they might as well blame Davis for the Stock Market Crash of 1929, the Crucifixion of Jesus, and Davis for tempting Eve to bite the forbidden fruit."

Recall proponents also blame the high cost of college tuition that was started with then-Gov. George Deukmejian, and Wilson's and Schwarzenegger's past endorsements of controversial initiatives, including Proposition 187, which was declared unconstitutional by the Federal Courts. "Arnold's a clonenator of Wilson. Why should Jay Leno and Oprah Winfrey give Arnold all this face time? Did Ronald Reagan ever fly to New York, and tell Johnny Carson in 1966 that he was running for Governor? SPARE ME!"

The Recall effort may extend to some Justices of the State Supreme Court. "If a majority of the Supreme Court say that San Francisco cannot perform Gay marriages, they will be next!" It is unclear whether Democrat Bill Lockyer who requested the State Supreme Court to stop Gay marriages, and who also supported Schwarzenegger in the Davis Recall election would also be next. "We will ask the current recall proponents, the members of the Recall Yahoogroups, and others to see if Lockyer should be recalled at all."

Ramey is NOT a president or chairman of the Recall Arnold movement. He was the person who carried the Recall Notice in person, and also obtained signatures at the Y-Que Trading Post in Los Feliz, and received signatures via snail mail after posting the Recall Notice online at www.angelfire.com/biz/hankramey/page4.html.

In addition to Gerritsen, Ramey's father and sister in Paramount signed the Recall Notice, as well as his brother-in-law in Fontana. The Moreno family of Santa Fe Springs signed the Recall Notice, and they own the El Compa Restaurant at Rosecrans and Orange in Paramount.

Also noted among the proponents are Riverside Civil Rights attorney Wole Akinyemi, and Democratic Assembly candidate Feral Masry of Newbury Park, who is female native of Saudi Arabia.

Ramey is also a member of the following Yahoogroup message boards dedicated to the Recall Arnold Movement, including:

http://groups.yahoo.com/group/Califunitedvsrecall [Correct name]
http://groups.yahoo.com/group/recall-arnold
http://groups.yahoo.com/group/RecallArnold
http://groups.yahoo.com/group/recallarnoldwatch
http://groups.yahoo.com/group/recallgovernator
http://groups.yahoo.com/group/supportgovernordavis

Ramey is also on various message boards that support the defeat of President Bush, and the election of Democrat John Kerry as President.

Schwarzenegger has seven days to serve and file an Answer to the Notice of Intention. After that Ramey has to submit proposed Petitions to Secretary of State Kevin Shelley, and if the Petitions are approved, proponents will have about five months to get signatures.

"We are aiming for the November 2004 Election, so that Bush, Arnold, and possibly the anti-Gay Marriage majority on the State Supreme Court would be thrown out of office."

Ramey's father, Henry Ramey, Sr., may be contacted at (562) 531-4439.

Gerritsen can be reached at (323) 560-4318.

GOVERNATOR AHRNOLD WILL BE "SERVED" TOMORROW

This to announce that Governor of the State of Callousness Ahrnold Schwarzenegger will be served with a Notice of Intention to Recall May 27, 2004, by Certified Mail tomorrow. The Notice will be published tomorrow in the San Bernardino Westside Story News, www.westsidestorynewspaper.com, and I would love to thank Wallace Allen, it's Publisher, for all of his help. The time will tick starting tomorrow. We will aim for this November's election. Once the Petitions are approved, we will ask for volunteers to circulate the Petitions until we raise money for paid circulators, and that can take awhile. As for talking to the Gay Rights organizations, the FTCR, the Indian Tribes, etc., I will be sending e-mails to various organizations requesting live persons to circulate when the time comes.

Everybody in the world except prisoners are allowed to circulate these Petitions. In light of the Peace Movement that should be in full gear in light of the recent news, I suggest that everybody involved in getting our troops back home alive help us, and we will coordinate with you in all protests against the village Idiot-in-Chief. Greens, other Naderites and third-parties will be welcome to circulate recall petitions, including you John Murphy, and don't worry, I'm straight, still looking for 18+ women to date. We will also ask Gays, Latinos, those affected by the budget cuts, trial lawyers, and Indian Tribes to participate. This will be the greatest year, since 1968, and we will send our troops home, defeat Bush, and RECALL ARNOLD!
