Hola all y Seasons Greetings!

I am a lawyer/scholar/activist in MX re. narcowar/counterfeiting and other
causes. I am preparing a press release as well as opera/play and paintings
in which I (do) will speak very harshly abt Obama, Cheny, etc. Do not wish
to violate Act and get spirited away to prison by DHS. I am more fearful of
my own gov't than I am the narcocounterfeiters/other criminals here.

Please advise!

Thanks y Feliz Navidad from War Zone MX!


PS If you ever need kick ass privacy lobbiests, the above two are your men!
