Dear Family and Friends,

In April, I ruptured my bicep tendon at work. I am just getting to the stage where I am doing strengthening for it and am
still off work.

But, more important is the fact that MSN closed my MSN email account for six (6) days this summer. It happened not
long after I posted the
Juaneno Unity article. I went to open my email and it said, "Access Denied: Account Closed." I
have had this address for a very long time; all of our family stuff goes through that address. When I finally received a
response from them about why, I was shocked. It read, "Distributing Objectionable Material." I thought those words and
actions might be reserved for something more provocative, like pornography. But, in today’s society, critical analysis of
the structure of the capitalist hierarchy has become a very subversive act. Freedom of speech is dwindling.

It brought back memories of my experience with the
Los Angeles Times, censorship and control of people’s thoughts
through the written word. The
Times filters articles through as many as five (5) editors before they make print. My own
private editor, Gus (my son), helped me play the filter game with them. Even the human interest stories we submitted
were chopped up so as not to offend the rich and powerful of this country.

I informed MSN that I was a writer and certain emails from professors and others were of historical value. The return
message was about three (3) people MSN said complained about getting my emails. So I asked them to let me know
who they were so I could remove them and not bother them. I don’t want to be the spam guy. MSN said they would not
tell me who because it is a matter of privacy. But if I sent more “spam” they would have to keep the account closed. I
then suggested that since they have access to my email, why don’t they remove them from it. MSN answered that they
would need a court order to extract names from my address book. Funny,  they didn’t need a court order to close my
email account.

Thus, I remained pretty paranoid throughout the summer. It seems we have entered into a time of social paranoia,
created by the fascist government that is controlled by corporations. Just think how our government is waging war on
the world to create so-called democratic governments, while taking freedom of press and thought away from its own
people in the name of limiting distribution of objectionable material.

Of note to all, I will be speaking at the second Juanenos for Unity gathering. Details are listed below. Thanks for keeping
in touch. I will be sending announcements about new articles from bob@onlinewithbob.com.

Hope you can share this with other family members and friends of the Juanenos who might be interested in attending
this historic event. I believe that it is in my tribe's best interest that everybody gets to know each other in a neutral
environment. The first meeting I went to turned out to be a great experience meeting newfound family. I got a real sense
of belonging, and I felt loved by all. We hope that we can get twice as many people to attend as last time, maybe 400-500.


Peace and Love,

-Bob


San Juan Capistrano Bell Ringer:  Jesus Aguila

The Bell Ringer would notify the native community of San Juan Capistrano by ringing the bells for the different events of
the day, this included the deaths of men and woman. The small or “angel bells” would be rung for the little children.
These bells would ring for daily events including a time to speak and worship God.  We would like to remember how
once the bells would be rung for our community to bring them all to a like mindedness.  Let’s take this time now and use
our voices like that of the bells and call our tribe back together in unity.  So along with your voices and prayers our
community will once again hear the sounds of the bells.
