Free Wood for signs and other stuff!
16 Sep 2004
Activists! Oranizers!Other people who aren't republicans or conservatives! We have some great wood to give out. It was left over from a recent political campaign and is great for sign making or other creative shit. We have hundreds of pieces and we want to give them away!

We dropped a ton on this stuff so Donations Accepted.

Please Call Tony at 617-365-2990

The sizes vary but the width is what normal politcal signs have.

This work is in the public domain

BEWARE! microchip transponders are embedded in the wood pieces!!

It is my assertion that those elements involved with the harassment operations at the RNC may be distributing items such as you describe for harassment of dissidents.

Is there ever a REAL post to this forum other than the strokingly delivered apologias for policy? ROFL entire sections of this site are spurious!
Transponders are real.

They allow a unique ID to be transmitted. The devices themselves are not powered, but when hit with microwave energy, they oscillate with a frequency which is transmitted using the existing cellphone network. Is that REAL enough for you?

regarding the transponder things, is is the exact same thing that gets implanted in pets so they can make it back to their 'owner'.

They aren't exactly a gps tracking device... all it does is store a simple NUMBER that is also saved in a computer with whatever information they want to tie to that number (i.e. the pet owner's address). And the only way that the number in the transponder is transmitted is win a special wand is passed directly over it. They are *not* tracking devices.
That link was simply to illustrate the technology.

The new tracking technology does not use GPS. It uses the far more accessible cellphone network to triangulate a location. Here is another illustration of the technology

This new threat is very low cost to the government, because the transponders do not have any moving parts, are easily mass produced, can be easily hidden in molded plastic or rubber, and do not need a power source. The cellphone network can pick up the transponder signal and determine location via triangulation.
