Sunday's Downsize DC Conference Call radio show is going to be a
repeat of last week's episode. We'll get to that in a moment.
But first, we want to talk about Breakfast with the Babka's -- in New
Hampshire, February 24th.
Jim Babka will be giving a speech, at the Free State Project's
Liberty Forum. The speech is titled, "How New Hampshire can Change
the Federal Government Forever." We'll give you a hint: Jim's speech
has something to do with the Read the Bills Act.
The Liberty Forum will be great fun. Other speakers include John
Stossel from the ABC Show 20/20, Rob Kampia of the Marijuana Policy
Project, and Congressman Ron Paul. There will be some great panel
discussions as well with panelists like Ian Bernard of Free Talk Live
and Alan Schaeffer of the Alliance for the Separation of School &
The New Hampshire Liberty Forum runs from Thursday February 22 to
Sunday February 25, 2007 in Concord, New Hampshire. As of right now,
Jim Babka speaks on Saturday, February 24.
DC Downsizers can receive a 5% discount on their registration by
using the code DOWNDC when they register.
You can learn all about the event here.
And if you use that DOWNDC code, OR you inform the event organizer,
Irena Goddard, by email, that you're "coming to the Free State
Project Liberty Forum to hear and meet Jim Babka," then you're
invited to a private breakfast with Jim and Sue Babka on Saturday
morning, February 24.
Jim and Sue want to join you, in a place to be announced, for a
low-carb breakfast (a place to be announced that serves good omelets)
because Jim's not only working to Downsize DC, but he's also trying
to "downsize" his waistline. Jim's proud to report, progress is being
made in both places. But you can have pancakes, waffles, muffins,
whatever . . . Jim and Sue just want to meet with you in a special
Irena Goddard's email address is igoddard at freestateproject dot org
And, by the way, she'll be happy to answer any questions you have
about the event.
Registration packages for the event start as low as $60. And friends,
it's important that we have DC Downsizers there. Not only will you
benefit from coming, but so to will Downsize DC. The more DC
Downsizers we have in attendance, the more "buzz" we create for
DownsizeDC.org. The more DC Downsizers we have coming, the more
everyone in groups of various type will hear about us and take an
interest in things like our Read the Bills Act.
It might be that you're quite interested in attending, but can't due
to scheduling conflicts or you don't feel you can afford the time.
Someone else is just like you. They too are interested, but they lack
the funds. Maybe they're a younger, even college age DC Downsizer. If
you're interested in offering a scholarship or sponsoring someone
else's trip, then please let us know at comments at DownsizeDC dot
org. We'll match you up with someone who is interested in attending.
Once again, to learn more or register go to
Don't forget to use the code DOWNDC for a 5% discount.
And if you're already registered, then please let Liberty Forum
organizer Irena Goddard know that, you're "coming to the Free State
Project Liberty Forum to see Jim Babka," because if you register with
the code or send that exact email, Jim and Sue Babka want to join you
for an exclusive breakfast.
Downsize DC Conference Call (radio show)
Due to Super Bowl Sunday, Jim Babka's one hour radio show tomorrow
(Sunday, 4 PM Eastern) is a repeat of last week's program. Here's how
we promoted it last week . . .
The US Department of Agriculture is attempting to deliver the Mark of
the Beast -- literally, they want to compel farmers to mark animals
with tags. And apparently, they're not content to stop there.
Big Government loves lists. It wants data about everything to put in
these lists. The belief is that government can always improve (Good
Government) if it has more information. But we know that equal
protection and liberty are both victims of such invasive schemes.
And this case is no different. The National Animal Identification
System (NAIS) is a corporate, one-world government scheme. That
statement doesn't come from a knee-jerk, conspiratorial place. It is
in the conglomerates' interest because NAIS serves as a method to
open foreign channels of distribution and because NAIS places a much
larger proportional burden on their smaller competitors -- especially
the family farm. It is part of a larger scheme driven by the Codex
Alimentarius system of the World Trade Organization.
NAIS directly threatens the diversity of our food supply and will, in
the end, give even greater power to large corporations to set the
agenda on food in our country. As we've awakened, as a people, to a
new level of health consciousness -- counting carbs, eating more
natural foods, and watching our transfats -- the mass production food
industry has struggled to adapt. It seems they'd rather not change.
Our very right to seek out the foods and supplements we want is under
attack. The National Animal Identification Act is part of that
assault on our liberty.
On Sunday, my guest on the Downsize DC Conference Call is Celeste
Bishop. Celeste was thrust from the tranquil farming life into a
crusade opposing partnerships between Big Government and large
agri-business that started when she got a 2005 USDA Agriculture
Survey and noticed some odd information.
Now, Celeste is currently educating and mobilizing outraged citizens
across the country concerned with the dangers of intrusive government
farming regulations currently being implemented affecting our
privacy, property, and our health. Celeste worked as a contractor for
Homeland Security and FEMA, working locally specializing in emergency
planning and operations, including the infamous day of 9-11. This
gives her some unique insight in how government works.
She is currently the Washington State Coordinator for Liberty Ark and
works also closely with NoNAIS.org.
