Vaccine manufacturers: What a friend you have in SCOTUS

“The 1986 law was passed as a protection to one of the largest contributors to political campaigns. It was a specially designed program that removed the right to enter into state or federal court and to sue for damages as a result of mandatory vaccinations which even in 1986 were known to cause more harm than good. “

_________________________________________

In what should come as no surprise to anyone who has watched as the Supreme Court routinely renders rulings which are clearly protective of corporate interests, another “opinion”, one clearly meant to protect big pharma from being held even remotely liable for the harm and damage caused by toxic vaccines, was just handed down. In a majority opinion by Justice Antonin Scalia, the court ruled the federal law preempted all design-defect claims against vaccine manufacturers. These would be the design defects that kill people, cause autism, neurological damage and lifetime physical impairment.

Apparently Justice Scalia is unaware that no law can be enacted which abrogates your individual rights.  Any law that attempts to deprive you of your rights is null and void on its face as if it had never been.  Actually, Scalia doesn’t really care and has routinely issued opinions that are written as if he is living in some other universe where he makes up his own laws and then decides they are real.

Note The Happy Compliant Smile!

If the American Public wants to fly, they had better get used to opening up and surrendering their DNA. At least that is the proposal put forward by the following report:

New portable DNA screener to debut this summer

As with other DNA tests, the process begins with a sample collected on a swab, typically from inside the mouth. The sample is placed in a disposable cartridge, and the analyzer does the rest of the work.

“It’s the same process that occurs in the lab today,” Miles said. But “it will drastically make the system more efficient.” More

Texas: SB 286 payrolling attorney’s

Leave a comment

For Texas Residents-
Senate Jurisprudence Hearings Set For 03/01/2011 – Estate / Guardianship

The Senate Jurisprudence Committee will be taking public testimony on 2 bills that should be of interest to all Elderly and Disabled Texans in Guardianship. Unfortunately these two bills only continue the abuse estates. SB 286- relating to attorney’s fees, the amendments are to include that the court may allocate attorney’s fees taxed at costs among the parties as the court finds is FAIR and JUST. If after examining the proposed ward’s ASSETS the court determines the proposed ward is unable to pay for costs allocated to the proposed ward for services provided by an attorney, the county is responsible is responsible for those costs. The attorneys appointed by the courts are forcing the sale of all assets to payroll attorneys fees.

SB 481- relating to the removal of a guardian of an incapacitated person ordered by the court. This bill has been amended for the court to provide notice and citation of a removal (after the fact) giving 30 days to file an application with the court for a hearing for reinstatement. If you are removed, you will be affected by SB 286 to pay for attorney fees that are FAIR and JUST. Which allows Attorneys to collect more fees.

A removal should only take place with clear and convincing evidence to substantiate a removal as written in the Probate Code under Section 761, no mention of removal with clear and convincing evidence in this bill. However, included in this bill: if the court is SATISFIED by the PREPONDERANCE OF THE EVIDENCE THAT THE APPLICANT DID NOT ENGAGE IN THE CONDUCT THAT DIRECTLY LED TO THE APPLICANT’S REMOVAL, the court shall set aside an order appointing a successor guardian, and shall enter an order reinstating the APPLICANT AS GUARDIAN. This bill does not mention that attorney’s fees be waived with the preponderance of the evidence.

Texas residents please join us at the Capitol On Tuesday March 01, 2001 to OPPOSE  these bills, and speak up for the disabled and elderly and for yourselves, this is our future under the Texas Probate Code pertaining to Estates and Guardianships.

We compel you to LISTEN, LEARN AND ACT for the well being and sanctity of families with incapacitated and elderly members, many of whom are also your constituents. You must bring justice to the citizens of Texas through logical and appropriate changes in the laws and institutions.  Unfortunately there are no agencies or laws to protect the rights of the family members of Texas’s most vulnerable population once their Guardianships are removed and revoked

Defining the “United States”

16 Comments

Guest Author:  Danny Martinez (c)copyright 2011

“To fully understand the impact of changing the wording from navigable waters to waters of the United States one must understand the clear meaning of what “United States” means.”

________________________________________________

UNITED STATES

In April 2, 2009, S. 787 the Clean Water Restoration Act was introduced to the 111th Congress,  which was a bill to amend the “Federal Water Pollution Control Act” to clarify the jurisdiction of the United States over waters of the United States. Section 1 Short Title says “This Act may be cited as the Clean Water Restoration Act.”  The purpose of the Act was to (1) to reaffirm the original intent of Congress in enacting the Federal Water Pollution control Act Amendments of 1972 (Public Law 92-500; 86 Stat. 816) to restore and maintain the chemical, physical, and biological integrity of the waters of the United States; and (2) to clarify define the waters of the United States that are subject to the Federal Water Pollution Control Act (33 U.S.C. 1251 et seq.)as those features that were treated as such pursuant to the final rule (including the preamble that final rule) published at 53 Fed. Reg. 20764 (June6, 1988) and 51 Fed Reg 41206 (November 13, 1986) and other applicable rules and interpretations in effect on January, 8, 2001.” [emphasis added]

This act has caused a lot of reaction from the states in regards to their sovereignty and their jurisdiction over waters within the boundaries of their respective states. This has not been diminished in any manner as Sect. 3 Findings (5) “Congress Supports the policy in effect under section 101(g) of the Federal Water Pollution Control Act (33 U.S.C. 1251(g)), which states that the authority of each State to allocate quantities of water within its jurisdiction shall not be superseded, abrogated or otherwise impaired by this Act. ….” [emphasis added]

To fully understand the impact of changing the wording from navigable waters to waters of the United States one must understand the clear meaning of what “United States” means.

In 1945 the Supreme Court in Hooven & Allison Co. v. Evatt, 324 U.S. 652 (1945) defined the term “United States” as having three distinct meanings ; The term “United States” may be used in any one of several senses. It may be merely the name of a sovereign occupying the position analogous to that of other sovereigns in the family of nations. It may designate the territory over which the sovereignty to the United States [672] extends, or it may be the collective name of the states which are united by and under the Constitution.” More

“There is no such thing as a “good attorney” who wants to end the nightmare that has been created for you and your loved one. All attorneys are paid out of the “ward’s” assets. This is like asking an oil company to stop drilling for oil. The only way an oil corporation will stop drilling for oil (in a particular area) is when they are certain that all the oil in that area has been depleted. Likewise, attorneys will stop the proceedings when all of your loved one’s money has been converted to attorneys’ fees.”

At least every couple of weeks, I receive a frantic call from a predatory guardianship victim—hoping, somehow, that I will have an answer for him or her.

Each time I receive one of these calls, I am torn up for hours afterwards.

I literally cry.

I have no answers for you. I am simply 100 yards down the road watching you walk the same path I/We have already walked.

Today was one such day. I spoke to the grandson of an 89-year-old woman who is being held hostage in a dungeon they call a nursing home.

She was removed from her grandson’s lovely home–based upon a false allegation. And even though he was cleared of all the allegations, a guardianship was commenced and continues.

That’s it. An allegation. I have stated before that these allegations need not be true. More

Homeward Bound: the planned use of water as a weapon

__________________________________________

“the planned use of water as a weapon, authorized under Section 817 of the U.S. Patriot Act. Section 817, The Expansion of the Biological Weapons Statute, is authorizing the use of toxins (poisons) and delivery systems (which is weapons terminology) apparently against citizens of the United States of America. It is the contention of this reporter that 817 is an “umbrella” statute, authorizing a number of poison projects, including, but not limited to, the water weapon.”

Driving up to the pumps, I have a distinct experience of entering  “No Man’s Land.” Gas is up over three bucks in Oregon and shows no sign of ever coming down. It strikes me that this feels like an affront, a virtual assault —that the price of gas is actually attacking my ever-diminishing financial reserves, and laying waste that green stuff which constitutes my nest egg. 

A confluence of forces are amassing at this point in time, which are keeping folks home much more than in past years. One is the price of gas. Another is the plunge of the dollar, world-wide. My intended trip to Jerusalem and points beyond will be deferred to a later date, for this reason alone. 

Other economic realities buttress the decision to stick around home plate. Job insecurity coupled with the spectre of possible home foreclosure amp up the sense of financial anxiety. The net effect of these  conditions  is that Americans are more home-bound. Like so many other Americans, I look anxiously to the political horizon to see a sign of change but see only a changing of the guard as our collective economic future marches towards a dark terminus.   More

What Is A NIB?

Leave a comment

Lynn Swearingen (c) copyright 2010 ALL RIGHTS RESERVED

Here is the reason I created NIBs for PPJ (I apologize if anyone thought they would get an article about old-fashioned fountain pens):

I began NIBs type bill “alerts” to begin to fight Legislation at the State Level while still in Committees.

“So I began to look around at proposed State Laws that nibbled away at the Freedom I longed to retain. Notice that I didn’t say “want” as Freedom is something we are inherently born with in this Nation yet allow others to legislate away. What I found was that “Nibbly Imperceptible Bills” (NIBs I call them) were steadily eroding the Liberty I thought I had.”

The concept behind informing individuals in each state about bills when a Committee of very few members are involved is pretty simple. It is easier to sway a few Committee members than 50 – 100 Senators or Legislators.

I’m not an attorney, politician, or economist. Simply put I’m just a wee bit tired of being behind in the legislative race to pass something, anything, to look like a competent politician.

Stop the NIBs before they enter the pipeline at a local level and there is no later need to canvass vast majority of individuals.

So far readers have introduced NIBs in their states to be considered (Washington, Utah, Texas, Illinois and Mississippi).

If readers send Bill Numbers to PPJ, I’ll do my best to provide contact information and Bill Status for individuals in that state to react if they choose to.

Some Thoughts On Union Busting

1 Comment

Dan Martin (c)copyright 2011 All Rights Reserved

_________________________________________

Listen up, Gilligans.

Okay, it is only fair to begin with a few definitions.

Gilligan: one whose every action reeks of incompetence. [from TV: “Gilligan’s Island”]

Degree: an academic award conferred by a university or college on successful completion of a course.

Labor: term used both for the effort of performing a task and for the workers engaged in the activity.

Collective bargaining: A method of negotiation in which employees use authorized union representatives to assist them.

Leadership: a mechanism for integrating group activity, in which an individual or part of a social group plays the role of leader – that is, unites and directs the actions of an entire group, which expects, accepts, and supports the leader’s actions.

You 30 and 40-somethings who think a degree automatically confers leadership attributes should go back and rethink the equation.

Many of you have spent more time in the classroom than out in the real world gaining valuable experience.

I have never forgotten a lesson learned in NROTC training: “Think you are a leader? Remember to look over your shoulder every so often to make sure you have followers.”

From the last quarter of the 19th century, the condition of most manual labor has improved slowly in industrial countries through organization, permitting collective bargaining with employers and successful pressure on governments for protective legislation. In fact, the term labor is today most frequently used to signify organized labor.
The eight-hour workday, suitable working conditions, decent wages, and health benefits are just a few examples of benefits the union movement has won for everyone in America, even if they do not belong to a union.

Something I have always taught in my Intro to Computers courses is: “If it makes sense, try it. If it doesn’t, don’t.”

Trying to balance the budget by restricting or eliminating Collective Bargaining doesn’t make sense. Don’t try it.

The State of California and Failure to Protect

“A recent board meeting found the members focused on concerns about raising more revenue for the bureau, which has taken out two loans totaling over a million dollars in order to stay solvent. The bureau reported that $357,000 for the current year covered only two staff positions and that a mere $50,000 was allotted for enforcement. The minutes reflect concerns that “one big case would break the budget.”

_________________________________________________

When Janis Schock learned that her complaint of conservator wrongdoing, submitted to the California Professional Fiduciaries Bureau, had been closed without an investigation taking place, she was dumbfounded. The communication from Angela Bigelow, analyst and sole full-time employee of the Professional Fiduciary Bureau (PFB), stated that the court must first make a determination of wrongdoing before the PFB could take action. Janis Schock wasn’t so sure this was true.

As it turns out, Schock was correct.

The Professional Fiduciaries Bureau is a relatively new addition to consumer oversight agencies and is lodged in the Department of Consumer Affairs. The PFB was established by an act of law in 2006, following public outcry engendered by a 2005 Los Angeles Times series which revealed questionable practices by California conservators, who were at that time unlicensed. The bureau, as written into law, is mandated to license professional fiduciaries, to investigate complaints and, where appropriate, to refer complaints to law enforcement.  The bureau is also empowered to revoke a license based on complaints and to take action on unlicensed activity.  The Professional Fiduciaries Act defines a professional fiduciary in this manner:

“Professional fiduciary”means a person who acts as a conservator of the person, the estate, or person and estate, or guardian of the estate, or person and estate, for two or more individuals at the same time who are not related to the professional fiduciary or to each other.

Conservators are generally appointed through court proceedings when there are allegations that a person is lacking capacity; in other words, becoming forgetful or otherwise unable to handle his or her affairs.  These allegations need meet no standard of proof, which provides an opening for abuse of process.  The Government Accountability Office recently released a report citing multiple instances where a conservator had abused his powers to the detriment of the conservatee.  Several grassroots groups have sprung up to address the issue of abusive conservatorships, which are reported to be taking place countrywide.

Illinois HB 1166 NIBS : Animal Hoarding

15 Comments

Lynn Swearingen (c) copyright 2010 ALL RIGHTS RESERVED

Not content with raising taxes 66%, attempting to track down those crazy homeschoolers so they can be “helped”, and sheltering Wisconsin’s missing Democrats (we hear that Indiana’s Dems are on the run as well)  Illinois actually has HB 1166 sitting in Committee right now which will criminalize individuals who own 7 or more “companion animals”.

As usual, one has to dig around a bit to find out just what the terminology contained within the proposed Law means and what the effect might be:

Companion Animal :

(510 ILCS 70/2.01a)
Sec. 2.01a. Companion animal. "Companion animal" means an animal that is commonly considered to be, or is considered by the owner to be, a pet. "Companion animal" includes, but is not limited to, canines, felines, and equines.
(Source: P.A. 92‑454, eff. 1‑1‑02.)

What will change in current law (pdf of HB 1166):

A person must obtain a permit from the Board to possess 7
or more companion animals, as defined in the Humane Care for
Animals Act. Failure to receive a permit for the possession of
7 or more companion animals is a violation of this Section and
a person is guilty of a Class B misdemeanor. A second or
subsequent violation is a Class 4 felony with every day that a
violation continues constituting a separate offense.

Who is “The Board” referred to in the above change? More

Yes. I used the “P” word.

When I began blogging, I tended to avoid words that euphemisms could cover. I did consider utilizing “the ol’ stick and berries” merely for the visual context, but I decided when a populace of a city gets to decide what one chooses to do with their offsprings genitals – only the real thing would suffice.

Off in the “la-la land” of budget deficits galore, the city that determined toys in a childs meal might possibly be a “bad thing” and therefore should be banned, attention has focused a little further south in anatomy land.

Monsanto Shifts ALL Liability to Farmers

3 Comments

By Cassandra Anderson

MorphCity

Farmers like genetically modified (GM) crops because they can plant them, spray them with herbicide and then there is very little maintenance until harvest. Farmers who plant Monsanto’s GM crops probably don’t realize what they bargain for when they sign the Monsanto Technology Stewardship Agreement contract. One farmer reportedly ‘went crazy’ when he discovered the scope of the contract because it transfers ALL liability to the farmer or grower.

Here is the paragraph that defines Monsanto’s limit of liability that shifts it to the farmer:

“GROWER’S EXCLUSIVE LIMITED REMEDY: THE EXCLUSIVE REMEDY OF THE GROWER AND THE LIMIT OF THE LIABILITY OF MONSANTO OR ANY SELLER FOR ANY AND ALL LOSSES, INJURY OR DAMAGES RESULTING FROM THE USE OR HANDLING OF SEED (INCLUDING CLAIMS BASED IN CONTRACT, NEGLIGENCE, PRODUCT LIABILITY, STRICT LIABILITY, TORT, OR OTHERWISE) SHALL BE THE PRICE PAID BY THE GROWER FOR THE QUANTITY OF THE SEED INVOLVED OR, AT THE ELECTION OF MONSANTO OR THE SEED SELLER, THE REPLACEMENT OF THE SEED. IN NO EVENT SHALL MONSANTO OR ANY SELLER BE LIABLE FOR ANY INCIDENTAL, CONSEQUENTIAL, SPECIAL, OR PUNITIVE DAMAGES.”  More

10th Amendment Alive In Utah

Leave a comment

Lynn Swearingen (c) copyright 2010 ALL RIGHTS RESERVED

Last week I wrote a little blog about HB 365. Thankfully PPJ was contacted by Conner who commented:

I am the state coordinator for the Utah Tenth Amendment Center and drafted this bill. It is currently under legislative review with Mr. Asplund. The text should hopefully be released this week.

We created the website http://www.utahintrastatecommerce.org to highlight the efforts around this and future bills of this nature.

According to the UTAC site, last year Utah took up Gun Rights as well:

In 2010, the Utah legislature passed, and the Governor signed, SB-11 (as did many other states). This law exempts firearms that are manufactured and sold within Utah from any federal regulation. A key paragraph reads:

A personal firearm, a firearm action or receiver, a firearm accessory, or ammunition that is manufactured commercially or privately in the state to be used or sold within the state is not subject to federal law or federal regulation, including registration, under the authority of congress to regulate interstate commerce.

If you reside in Utah, or would like more information concerning 10th Amendment Freedoms, I encourage you to visit their blog for timely updates.

Our thanks to Conner

Throwing Money At The Wrong Problem

In his excellent article: The Great Texas Wind Hoax (Copyright © 2011 by Sam Pakan. All Rights Reserved.) published February 17, 2011 by ppjg, Mr. Pakan spells out the case against wind turbines in Texas.

It seems to me that we are not suffering a shortage of energy. What we have is an energy storage problem.

How much of the sun’s energy does the earth get?
The Earth receives 174 petawatts (PW) of incoming solar radiation (insolation) at the upper atmosphere. Approximately 30% is reflected back to space while the rest is absorbed by clouds, oceans and land masses.

What percentage of the sun’s energy does the earth receive?…
The Earth receives 0.000000045% of the Sun’s Energy.

This solar energy drives the winds and the tides while providing warmth and light. It is what makes life on Earth possible.

As we convert this energy to useful forms, such as hydroelectric plants, wind farms, water wheels, and all the rest, we have long confronted the dual problems of storage and distribution.

With modern technology it does not seem too difficult to increase that miniscule percentage of the sun’s energy. The problem remains one of distribution and storage. Converting one twentieth of Texas into ‘wind farms’ does nothing to solve the basic problem.

Why do I feel like the toddler at the curb, pointing out that the emperor is strutting around buck naked?

Birth To Billet? Tracking of Mississippi Children Proposed

Lynn Swearingen (c) copyright 2010 ALL RIGHTS RESERVED

For years many Americans have been concerned. How will the State know that the educational process has been effective? How will “stakeholders” and other “interested parties” such as The Mississippi Department of Human Services know that what outcomes have been produced by all of their efforts? If only there were a law allowing sharing of data among agencies – for the children of course….

Well they shall wonder no longer! In a move designed to trace Mississippians from “Birth to Billet” (my catchy little phrase) all the data needed will be routed through interagency cooperation to create the State Longitudinal Data System (SLDS). Who will be involved in this little data collection scheme?

(a) The Mississippi Department of Education (MDE);
(b) The State Board for Community and Junior Colleges (SBCJC)
(c) The Board of Trustees of State Institutions of 45 Higher Learning (IHL);
(d) The State Workforce Investment Board (SWIB);
(e) The Mississippi Department of Employment Security (MDES)
(f) The Mississippi Department of Human Services (MDHS)
and
(g) The State Early Childhood Advisory Council (SECAC).

Wisconsin under Siege

Paul Griepentrog ________________________________________________

Despite not being a Republican I am often invited to the functions, like the Price County Presidents Day Dinner.  I enjoy the opportunity to converse with elected officials, but the union reich was present with their protesters and attempted to violate my right to be secure in my person by taking my picture, my wife held her hand over the camera and the lady stated she had a right to take pictures, undoubtedly to use for future retaliation.  Four police officers were present to protect meeting attendees. 

I was disappointed that my state representative, Mary Williams, was told not to appear because of security issues regarding threats to her, her daughter, a teacher, and granddaughter in grade school.  The union storm troopers even protested at the restaurant owned by Mary and her husband Al, in Medford WI. 

My state senator Pam Galloway was in attendance and indicated she was going to initiate an investigation regarding the doctor at the capitol writing medical excuses for teachers missing school on national television, in conjunction with the Department of Justice and State Licensing Board.  Pam had to leave early under police escort for her protection. 

Keynote speaker was the congress member for this district, Sean Duffy having defeated Dave Obey in the fall election.  He proceeded to go into self praising diatribe about his votes regarding budget cuts.  I questioned him regarding why the USDA requested 14.2 million for the Animal Traceability Program which the USDA had rolled NAIS program into on the Federal Register by sleight of hand and that it had been defunded by the previous congress and ruled by the judiciary as having no benefit for animal disease control. He went blank and responded that it was good constituents brought these issues to his attention. DUH 

The attendance was bigger than ever with many non members present from even two counties away to show support for Governor Walker’s proposal despite the attempt by protesters to park all the stalls full. 

In my opinion the justification that union members are only doing what they have to doesn’t hold water, when they threaten legislators and their families they have gone too far.  There is no reason to tolerate this type of behavior or allow these people to continue, their arrogant kind simply need to go.  No foreign terrorist group would be tolerated if conducting this type of activity.

How Close Are We to a Nano-based Surveillance State?

Leave a comment

 

In the span of just three years, we have seen drone surveillance become openly operational on American soil.

In 2007, Texas reporters first filmed a predator drone test being conducted by the local police department in tandem with Homeland Security.  And in 2009, it was revealed that an operation was underway to use predator drones inland over major cities, far from “border control” functions.  This year it has been announced that not only will drone operations fly over the Mexican border, but the United States and Canada are partnering to cover 900 miles of the northern border as well.

Now that the precedent has been set to employ drones over non-combat areas, the military is further revealing the technology of miniaturization that they currently have at their disposal.  As drone expert, P.W. Singer said, “At this point, it doesn’t really matter if you are against the technology, because it’s coming.”  According to Singer, “The miniaturization of drones is where it really gets interesting.  You can use these things anywhere, put them anyplace, and the target will never even know they’re being watched.”

So what exactly is on the horizon?

The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) funds military tech development through the private sector with defense contractors such as Lockheed Martin, Boeing, and Honeywell.  It was Honeywell that introduced the T-Hawk micro drone — now purchased by Miami-Dade county for use in the metro area — which weighs all of 16 pounds and can fly in any direction.  However, this is not so “micro” compared to the latest spy drone to be revealed: the Nano Hummingbird, produced by AeroVironment.

Probate Courts: Criminal racketeering sanctioned by government

“This system of theft will continue until the entire estate has been stolen leaving the victim penniless. At this point, Medicare and Medicaid are used as the cash cow to cover medical expenses and the inflated charges of nursing, the doctors’ visits and vast amounts of medications are charged off to these services costing these services millions each year in padded billing. “

One of the worst pseudo courts in the US is the system of probate courts.  Across the board, in absolutely every state is a so-called court system that operates for profit at the expense of any individual or family unfortunate enough to have any assets.  By law, upon death of the estate holder, all assets are seized by the court for distribution.  Supposedly these courts are charged with making sure all assets are distributed in the manner the decedent supposedly wanted yet it is estimated that 80% of heirs never receive their inheritance or receive only small portions of what was originally left to them as a result of the criminal racketeering that occurs in these courts.

Between the probate judge who has a financial interest against the estate collecting on average 6-7% of the estate nationally,(this is aside from his annual salary paid by the state and is assessed against each and every probate case in their courts) and attorneys who will land on the estates like a swarm of vultures and who misuse the courts to access the assets of the decedent while filing vexatious motions, charges and suits then charging hyper-inflated fees for these actions against the estate, there is little chance heirs will receive anything at all.

Probate begins when a person dies. The decedent’s last will and testament and death certificate are filed through probate court which sets this system of organized crime into motion. The will outlines the decedents’ final wishes including funeral arrangements and distribution of assets.

So how do living persons end up having their estates stolen by predatory guardians, crooked attorneys, and corrupted judges?  After all, probate is premised upon the individual having died.

Mexican Drug Cartels and Terrorist join forces?

In testimony before a congressional committee this week, U.S. Secretary of Homeland Security, Janet Napolitano, said: “We have for some time been thinking ahead about what would happen if, say, Al Qaeda were to unite with the Zetas, one of the drug cartels.”

She was responding to a question about the possibility of terrorists using a drug-trafficking network to smuggle bombs or other lethal material into the United States from Mexico. In the last few years there have been news reports that bombs, dirty suitcase bombs and other weapons of mass destruction and their components have been smuggled into the U.S. through some of the very drug corridors used by the Mexican Drug Cartels (MDC,s).

Mexico’s interior minister, Jose Francisco Blake Mora, said there was “no sign or element of a connection” between the groups. “Quite the contrary,” he told a radio interviewer, “these are two very different phenomena.”

Some Mexican officials, are taking issue with her recent comments that raised the possibility of an alliance between Mexican drug cartels and radical Islamic terrorists.  More

Having returned home early Thursday afternoon from her job down state, due to my illness, my wife arrived at the Emergency Room of the Howard Young Hospital.  The attendant at the desk called regarding my status and told my wife “I’m sorry; your husband is no longer with us.”  However reports of my demise are greatly exaggerated. 

We will be forced to pay for the treatment received out of our own pockets as we are without insurance.  A situation facilitated by increasing property taxes as a direct result of teacher retirement.  It seems as if the Park Falls school district failed to provide the necessary funds back in the eighties and now finds itself with a million dollar debt that it will be writing its own bond for.  When questioned as to the individuals responsible, we were informed that doesn’t matter.  This cover up was facilitated in part by none other than County Clerk Jean Gotwald serving in her capacity on the Chequamegon School District.  We were told the state employees union carried the debt for the failed payments and now we owe them principal and interest.   More

Mental Health Screenings In The Public School System

Inventive Spelling

It is called “invented spelling” or “inventive spelling,” and many teachers encourage it in the early grades. It’s not because they’ve given up teaching children to spell, but because of a general shift in understanding about how children learn.

When children create their own spellings for words they do not know how to spell correctly they’re using invented spelling. They use what they know about letters, sounds and spelling patterns to spell the word as well as they can.

Written in standard spelling, the above excerpt from a first-grader’s story would say: “There once was two flowers. One was pink and the other was purple. They did not like each other because they were different colors. One day they had a fight.”

The Village Composed of Missing Idiots Comes To Power

What the Idiots are up to this week.

One knows they reside in a country where apparently the saying years ago by the current Secretary Of State “It takes a village to raise a child” crashes into another of my favorite sayings “Somewhere a village is missing its idiot” to create: The Village Composed of Missing Idiots

I present to the reader my proof:

No helmet? That’s a $275 ticket

Malfatto noticed Officer Truscott writing a group of teenagers citations for not wearing helmets and thought it would be a good chance to use the flat part of the park to continue teaching his son to skate without any other people around. His son was equipped with a helmet, elbow pads, kneepads and wrist guards. More

I received a tip this morning with a curious request “Can you make an anti-NIB of Utah’s HB 365”.  I tried, I really did. The Title of this Bill looked very promising:

Federal Regulation of Local Agricultural Products


As one can see from the PDF there is no text, although apparently an Attorney (Peter Asplund) was paid to draft HB 365.

Reverse mortgages…exploitation of the elderly

3 Comments

We’ve all see the ads for reverse mortgages aimed at elderly persons who have managed to pay off their homes and remain in them.  Here is the part of the advertisement they don’t tell you.  All of our elderly are at risk of exploitation not only from predatory guardianships, but also from predatory lenders.  

______________________________________________

Our story is about my parents, Patricia and Richard Hickerson who were sold a reverse mortgage that was not needed or appropriate for their circumstances.  It’s a tragic story of deceit, fraud and purposefully targeting vulnerable seniors to deprive them of their property, retirement, dignity and quality of life.MOM AND DAD’S HEALTHIn April of 2002 Mom was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease and could no longer balance a checkbook or manage the family finances as she had all her married life.  By 2003 mom was unable make change for a twenty dollar bill.  She required assistance in basic activities of daily living.      REVERSE MORTGAGE TIMELINE:The Reverse Mortgage my parents received was:One time lump sum payment           $  81,000                  Financial Freedom and Pacific Reverse Mortgage prey on vulnerable seniors by never doing the “right thing” to make sure the consequences of their loans will do no harm.  They did nothing but  gain my parents trust, and steal their home.    HOW THE REVERSE MORTGAGE AFFECTED OUR FAMILY
:
One month after signing the reverse mortgage contract Dad passed away.  It breaks my heart that Dad’s dying wish to care for mom for the rest of her life, was stolen from him.  If the terms were explained simply and honestly that for a one time payment of $81,000 (15% *of their property value) they would pay $25,000* in fees and costs in exchange for their home, dad would never have agreed.  Let’s be real – who in their right mind would
agree to these terms?  
Please help us fulfill Dad’s dying wish to provide care for mom.  Please donate today to help
provide the care mom needs at the end of her life.

Mom and Dad were good, caring, and trusting  people who worked all their lives to provide for each other and their family.  They lived in a modest home they took pride in for 25 years.  Mom and Dad volunteered together delivering  “Meals on Wheels” and Mom volunteered for the city and thrift shop.  They enjoyed giving back to the community where they lived.

Dad had been suffering from 9 major illnesses for more than 10 years, including heart disease, lung disease, and diabetes.  By 2004 he also had metastatic cancer in his head and advanced liver cancer.  Dad knew he was dying but  he never told anyone.  He never complained or told us how much he was suffering.   More

Are American Calls For Internet Freedom Two-Faced?

It was so nice to hear Hillary give a speech, claiming that America stands against global Internet oppression. Words, words, words.  But aren’t her words empty if America is going to act like a digital dictatorship itself?

Dutch blogger Willemien Groot calls the Secretary of State’s words “two-faced.”  Recent evidence suggests that she has a point.

Congress is once again considering modeling itself after bastions of freedom like Egypt by arming the government with an Internet kill switch that continues to draw the ire of free speech advocates.  Also, the Department of Homeland Security has also been on quite the rampage lately, seizing domain names and shutting down websites for merely linking to sites accused of infringing copyright.  Then, as recently as this past weekend, DHS mistakenly suspended 84,000 websites when the government cast too wide a net as it seized domain names accused of child pornography.  No decent person is in favor of child porn, but if the U.S. government continues to play it fast and loose with due process rights, American warnings about Internet oppression will continue to crumble under the weight of their own hypocrisy.

Social Security is not an “entitlement” program

38 Comments

___________________________________________

Social Security is an investor funded program that has also been used to fund the government, it is NOT an entitlement program nor was it intended to be any form of welfare.  The “entitlement” the government speaks of would be more aptly applied to them; they feeling they are entitled to avail themselves of our investments and use that money for whatever they choose to. 

_______________________________________________

A long coveted cut to Social Security and Medicare is going to happen.  This will occur for reasons none of the politicians in the District of Criminals will ever speak about publicly.  There is far more at stake here than what the District terms an “unfunded liability”.  When you hear those in the District speak about this liability, you need to understand what they are really saying.  This is an intra-governmental debt, meaning; a debt accrued within the government. It is a liability to the federal government because it is owed to “you” and they have no way of paying it back without taxing you more heavily.  You are the “full faith and credit” of the United States corporation.  That means government runs up the bills and we pay it. 

The federal government now includes Social Security in its debt portfolio, not because the program is insolvent or ever was, and not because the Federal government has to fund it in any sense (SS is funded by your investments) but because the Federal government has stolen so much money from the fund, then sold special treasury securities on those stolen funds to countries like China to finance the massive debt accruing across the board.  Since there is no chance the national debt can ever be repaid, the Fed is now in the position of finagling the discharge of internal debt from the books.  Look at it as a form of back door bankruptcy. 

The federal government DOES NOT fund Social Security!  Social Security funds the federal government.  More

I completed my morning perusal of “things that really matter but most of the American public are too distracted by the “Unexpected numbers” out of the MainStream Media (MSM) to give a flying leap” and found this most interesting little Bill sitting on Thomas.gov.:

A BILL

To amend the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act to prevent the approval of genetically engineered fish.

    Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United States of America in Congress assembled,

SECTION 1. PREVENTING THE APPROVAL OF GENETICALLY ENGINEERED FISH.

    Section 512(a) of the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (21 U.S.C. 360b(a)) is amended by adding at the end the following new paragraph:
    • `(7) Notwithstanding any other provision of this section, a genetically engineered fish shall be deemed unsafe under this section, including for purposes of section 402(a)(2)(C)(ii).’.

Curious I wandered over to see what the companion Senate language was and lo-and-behold, here it is:

Youtube is a wonderous thing.

On the ground reporting provides information very quickly, accurately and cleanly. In the case of Illinois SB 136, interesting terms from State Officials can be viewed. Here is one example.

Please pay careful attention at 3:30 forward where Senator Luechtefeld questions Bill Reynolds (Truant Officer) on why SB 136 is needed.

The general gist of the conversation for readers without access to video is the following:

Senator: So will you be going into the home of people even if they are doing a good job?

Truant Officer: Yes. They might need help. More

Been laid off? Rising Health Insurance premiums got you down?  Having to eye that gold heirloom necklace that Grandma left you to buy a few groceries? Thinking of seriously speaking to your Dentist in order to have that “better economic days” gold tooth pulled for cash?

Well, if you live in Washington State, you may want to take notice of NIBS HB 1716 (PDF) which changes the current law in the following manner:

(2) ((This)) For any transaction involving property consisting of
a precious metal, every secondhand dealer or temporary, transient
secondhand dealer doing business in this state shall maintain wherever
that business is conducted a record in which shall be legibly written
in the English language, at the time of each transaction, the following

Wisconsin DATCP: A rogue agency continues its assault on milk producers

Paul Griepentrog/PPJ Reporter Wisconsin

“A clear cut act of coercion, being forced to waive their rights just to market milk. “

____________________________________________ 

Yup! DATCP won again! As Mark and Jane Brothen pled no contest to charges of failure to register a premises.  

Unable to afford or procure competent counsel and lacking the ability to represent themselves left them with little choice, after all the state run education system falls grievously short of providing scholars of the necessary information to obtain due process of law, and deliberately so. 

Jubilant with their boot heel victory over another family farm Donna Gilson, spokesperson for DATCP, rushed to press somewhat prematurely as her announcement was three days prior to the entry in the court record.  An act in clear violation of Wisconsin Statutes  §943.201 except for one thing; Mark and Jane are licensed dairy producers and as part of the application for that license were forced to wave their privacy rights and allow DATCP to do whatever it wants with their information. 

Even when producers try and make a reservation of rights the heavy handed Cheryl Daniels wrote: 

 “If a person wants to be a dairy producer, they must submit the application as written.  If they want a license, they need to follow our rules.  Premises is a term under our statute. Have them resubmit the application or tell them it will be denied.”

Why nobody trusts the mainstream media

You already knew you couldn’t trust them to tell you the truth about anything, why are you tuning in?  Spin…the new buzzword to describe lying, is now taught at our colleges and unniversities.  Very little of what you hear on MSM bears any resemblance to the truth, unless of course its a celebrity birthday, crotch shot or DUI.
