[9:05pm] malt: nyet [9:05pm] malt: sam capradae, worcester [9:05pm] jokeefe: James O’Keefe, Somerville [9:05pm] jokeefe: Decisions/Endorsements [9:05pm] jokeefe: PATRIOT ACT 20th Anniversary Protest [9:06pm] jokeefe: National Party is organizing a protest. [9:06pm] malt: fun! [9:06pm] jokeefe: Mostly virtual [9:06pm] jokeefe: Should we join? [9:06pm] jokeefe: They are working out the full details [9:08pm] malt: i think it'd be worthwhile [9:08pm] malt: i've got a few hours i can commit [9:09pm] jokeefe: I agree [9:10pm] jokeefe: Any objections? [9:10pm] malt: doesn't seem like it [9:11pm] jokeefe: yes [9:11pm] jokeefe: Will notify national and get more details. [9:12pm] jokeefe: The 20th anniversary of the signing is the 26th I believe.

[9:15pm] malt: immigration? [9:15pm] jokeefe: we have the two [9:16pm] jokeefe: sure [9:16pm] malt: yeah this one needs more cleaning up [9:18pm] malt: The thing about borders on this continent is that it has bastardized what it means to be "American". The United States Empire has done an incredible job at making those confined within the borders of the USA as the only “Americans”. We are Americans, but so are people from Greenland, Canada, Mexico, Guatemala, Belize, Honduras, El Salvador, [9:18pm] malt: Nicaragua, Costa Rica, Panama, Colombia, Venezuela, Guyana, Suriname, Peru, Brazil, Ecuador, Chile, Bolivia, Paraguay, Argentina, Uruguay and the Caribbean. We convinced those living within the United States borders than Texans and Californians and New Englanders and Cascadians are the only Americans. The idea that you're only an "American" if you [9:18pm] malt: live within the borders of the United States is utter malarkey. [9:18pm] malt: thoughts on this paragraph? [9:21pm] malt: i'm not convinced it really adds much [9:21pm] jokeefe: It is long [9:27pm] jokeefe: hmmm [9:29pm] jokeefe: armigerous failsons? [9:35pm] malt: i think it's quite a clever turn of phrase [9:35pm] malt: armigerous meaning from a family with a coat of arms [9:36pm] jokeefe: I agree, but few will get it unfortunately [9:38pm] malt: it is with a deep and heavy heart that i revise the line [9:38pm] malt: let the record show that it is done with a great wailing and gnashing of teeth [9:39pm] jokeefe: 2nd [9:42pm] jokeefe: Looking at “Furthermore, borders enforced by colonizers are illegitimate, because they do not have authority over stolen land. “ and how to word to fit in with the rest of the text [9:44pm] malt: got it! [9:45pm] jokeefe: thanks [9:51pm] jokeefe: Reworking the beginning [10:02pm] jokeefe: I like it so far, but I am still working on a new intro. Revisit next week? [10:02pm] malt: sure! [10:03pm] jokeefe: pirate news Sunday? [10:04pm] malt: i will be in the woods, sadly! [10:05pm] jokeefe: have a lovely time [10:05pm] jokeefe: sounds like a needed sanity break [10:05pm] jokeefe: shall we adjourn? [10:07pm] malt: aye! [10:07pm] jokeefe: good night. will post the notes
