__________________________________________________________

Is a new, lucrative career as professional predator waiting for you?  Call us at 1-800-yourascumbag  or: send your resume to “Coffin Chasers r Us” !

_______________________________________________________

Are you looking for a new career?  Tired of actually having to work for a living?  Do you lack any morals, ethics, any sense of empathy or sympathy?  Are you looking to make easy money?  Would it bother you to be known as a “coffin chaser”, a predator, a vulture?  Could you sleep at night knowing you had caused so much misery and 1926745_10200877827102428_569924460_nsuffering not only to your victim, but also to the extended family as a result of your chosen profession? Your personal greed? Your lack of humanity? You could??  Have we got a career for you!

Become a Professional Fiduciary!  Take ownership of another human being!

  • Our kangaroo judges will immediately strip that elderly person of all of their Constitutional protections.  By the time we are done, the victim will be “dead in the law” and our “judges” will declare them civilly dead and will effectively declare them chattel property….YOU OWN THEM!
  • Our judges can be depended upon to immediately discard all standing legal instruments that the victim might have constructed to protect themselves in old age.  Trusts?  Medical directives and surrogates?  Wills?  NOT A PROBLEM!  We can guarantee that none of these arrangements will stand and will be immediately thrown out by one of our judges!
  • We can teach you how to file false charges against family members claiming abuse, exploitation, neglect and other unsubstantiated claims.  Don’t worry about having to prove anything!  Our probate judges are more than willing to accept whatever you say without that pesky task of proving your allegations.
  • We’ll show you how to begin tapping that estate within days of your phony emergency guardianship petition.  You can be driving a new Mercedes by Friday, and you can pay all of your bills out of the victims estate! And no one can do a thing about it! 
  • Any property owned by the victim is now yours!  All personal possessions, any art work, valuable jewelry, family heirlooms, any homes or other real estate is there at your disposal! All bank accounts, investments, bonds, stocks, cars, trucks, anything of value can now be retitled to you!  You just have to say you stole sold it to “benefit the ward”!  And you can keep doing this until the estate is totally depleted.  When it is, you simply have to petition the court to allow you to resign as guardian. 
  • Even though state statutes prohibit it, we will show you how to isolate the elderly victim from their family, friends, and even from their churches.  If anyone even thinks of insisting on visiting the victim, we can promise the total cooperation and intimidation of the local police or sheriff’s office in threatening those visitors with criminal trespass if they persist.
  • We have a list of doctors who will more than willingly prescribe psychotropic medications for use as chemical restraint, even though these are strictly prohibited for use on people over 60.  In exchange for their cooperation, they are allowed to bill the victims for services never rendered.
  • We have dependable and possibly clairvoyant, psychiatrists who are quite able to diagnose all the fictional mental illnesses you can think of …..and many times they never even have to actually visit the victim! They just know! But they can write letters to the court that will scare the beejesus out of a normal person!
  • Through our network of participating facilities known as nursing homes warehouses we will drug, neglect, abuse and sometimes even starve the victim.  If they become too bothersome, our staff is not at all opposed to a little physicality in the form of an “attitude adjustment”.  Don’t worry about this, as it is a rare occasion that you will ever have to even see the victim, although you can still bill the estate as if you actually did! (Does it get any better than this?)
  • We have a cadre of unethical and immoral attorneys who are more than willing to represent you as they tap the estate right along side of you.  The fortunes that have been made by legal professionals in this field is supported by and, protected by, the fine folks at your local Bar Association.  Even your state judiciary will turn a blind eye to grand larceny, financial exploitation, and the abuse of the victim that is taking place on your command. 

These are just a few of the highlights of the career that awaits you should you decide to become a professional predator!  With our training you will learn how lucrative owning another human being can be.  Multiply that by the limitless possibility of having hundreds of victims that you supposedly are caring for.  We’ll show you how to set things up to make it look like you actually performed some kind of service to the victim while never having to do a thing except collect the money!

We guarantee that you will never be held accountable to anyone for any of the lives you will destroy. Heck! We even have judges who will give you immunity from prosecution should anyone try to hold you accountable!

So drop us a line and tell us why you think you could work as a predator in the guardianship field. The professional fiduciary field is the fastest growing and most lucrative cottage industry in the country and is fully supported by the Bar Association, The National Guardianship Association, Judicial Oversight and Review Boards, and those laughably useless Fiduciary Oversight Boards that we have set up in almost every state.

And remember! The silver tsunami is coming and the potential for stealing millions from the estates of those who committed the new age crime of “aging with assets” is here!

Monsanto receives gift from the Senate & House

getimage1Jackass Alert!

The overtaking of several sectors of the federal government by private corporations who routinely use congress and the president to codify their unlawful activity to expand their monopolies has just received a huge gift package from those fine jackasses in the District of Criminals. Monsanto just received a payoff on its massive funding of campaign contributions on both sides of the isle, having the favor returned in the form of a free pass on any kind of control or any kind of judicial penalty on their collective species of invasive seeds.

The Continuing Resolution (CR) which has been pitched as a crisis bill because otherwise the world wouldfarmer3_dees come to an end, included a so-called sneak attack by Monsanto that would give it a free pass. The Monsanto Rider avoids USDA controls and eliminates any judicial system interference. Obviously unconstitutional, the rider violates the right to due process by those harmed by this corporation and establishes a clear pattern of collusion against the public at large.  No one actually wants Monsanto’s products and the grassroots resistance to these toxic crops has been non-stop.  Both houses of congress of course ignored the public backlash as they voted on a full scale corporate hiney hugging love fest.

Through a carefully constructed system of market manipulations, predatory practices, and with the complete cooperation of the USDA and the courts, Monsanto has relentlessly worked to end any farming endeavors that have not been consumed by their market monopoly.  It also helped out immensely that Michael Taylor, alleged former attorney for Monsanto was somehow appointed to the newly created and unconstitutional office of “Food Czar” right inside the White House!  I cannot help but wonder what input he may have had in this rotten deal.

The actual intent of this rider was to relieve congress, the courts and federal agencies such as the USDA, from having to publicly expose themselves as bought and paid for.  This rider actually serves to relieve them of having to expose themselves to any scrutiny or to require them to take any position arbitrary to Monsanto that might cause the  money train to run off the rails.

MAJOR JACKASS ALERT! 

The Senate voted to pass the anti-American Defense Authorization Act of 2011, S.1867.   The vote was 61-37; 61 Senators who swore to defend and uphold the Constitution just flipped the bird at the entire country. 

44 Republican Senators voted to keep the detainee provisions in the bill….these are those same Republicans who are going to save the country from Obama and the Democrats. 

17 Democrats voted to keep the same provisions….These are the same Democrats who are going to save country from the Republicans and the neo-cons. 

I can’t speak for anyone else other than myself here but, I am so sick of this traitorous bunch of political whores and jackasses, I can barely stand it.  I cannot think of one rational, plausible reason as to why this bill included the so-called “right” to arbitrarily and summarily determine any one, anywhere in the world to be a threat/criminal, and to detain them indefintiely without any bona fide reason and based on nothing more than what  might amount to a “belief”  and to hold them indefinitely without charging them with any crime or producing any evidence that one had been committed and to do this to anyone the government decides to, even US citizens.  Who are the real terrorists here?  And why would codifying this into some horrendous law, make it any less repugnant or any more justifiable?

Its bad enough that we are unable to trust anything this bunch does, much less even one word of anything they say, but the fact is THEY know that WE know they are lying and betraying us at every opportunity, yet they continue to do so while simultaneously trying to convince us that one party or the other is the only party that will save us from fascism/socialism/communism…..whatever “ism” suits their current needs.  The fact is, we need to save our selves from our own government.   More

Dear Senator Harkin: Knock! knock! Puddin’ Head! We’re broke!

JACKASS ALERT!

This week’s Jackass Award goes to Senator Tom Harkin.  While the country founders in debt, Senator Harkin maintains that he has the constitutional right to create debt through the use of earmarks!  Makes him look really good at home come election time!

__________________________________________________________Yesterday I sat through about 45 minutes of arguments on the Senate floor via C-SPAN, regarding the use of earmarks which by the Senates’ own admission, costs the country an average of 350 BILLION dollars per year.  This is money spent by elected officials which amounts to an indirect tax on the country as a whole; a tax which will be converted to campaign slogans and bragging about how Senator “So&So” brought home the bacon.  Unfortunately, the entire country has to buy that pig although few us will get to sit down to the meal.

Much to my amazement Senator Harkin (D) IA. , gave a long and tedious speech about how the “sun shines” on all the earmarks and these are public knowledge, and how this is somehow the right of Senators to continue to spend us into un-repayable debt while indirectly taxing us to promote their campaigns.  Using the words “sunshine, transparency, and the CONSTITUTION, Harkin claimed it was their constitutional right to spend money we don’t have just to make themselves look good at home. 

I found this speech all the more amazing as Mr. Harkin just voted for cloture on S.510, the fake food safety bill, which assaults any number of constitutional rights of individuals.  It appears obvious those “rights” only apply to the Senate as far as Harkin is concerned.  During his high drama speech on S.510, filled with skewed data, and the usual bleating and crying about people “dying and suffering” right now!,  which he claimed he had personally worked on for years, it seems the Senator didn’t recollect anything about the Constitution as it pertained to the citizenry.  Must be some kind of congressional Alzheimers; selective memory or expedient mis-recollection.  Whatever it is, Harkin seems to be in advanced stages of the disease.

It also seems glaringly apparent that few Senators, nor any one else in government for that matter, have any comprehension or concern for the enormous debt that is piling up as we are systematically driven into a debt so massive and so incomprehensible to the average person, that the actual numbers cause the mind to go numb. 

I find it appalling that with 22 million Americans out of work, 48 million families on food stamps, the Federal Reserve poised to collapse the dollar, no one willing to buy any more of our treasuries due to our massive and unrepayable debt load, that any government official, much less a Senator would advocate for a practice that costs the country annually, 350 BILLION dollars! With annual revenues in the toilet due to massive unemployment, the idea that any Senator would be enraged by the idea that one of his cash cows was about to be tipped over while the country slips further into economic collapse,  just infuriates me.

So, to Senator Harkin and all those other government officials who obviously believe that money does grow on trees:

 KNOCK! KNOCK! PUDDIN’ HEAD!   WE’RE BROKE!  STOP SPENDING MONEY WE DON”T HAVE! 

I personally believe that any Senator or Representative who obtains the benefits of indirect campaign promotion through the use of earmarks, should be required to pay taxes on those funds and should also be required to forfeit their annual salary as an act of good faith to offset the debt they created through the practice of earmarks.

Hitting them in their pockets while they pick our pockets might slow the progression of one of the most corrupt practices in congress.

And this week’s award goes to: Mr. Paul McGraw head of Wisconsin DATCP

JACKASS ALERT!!

This week’s PPJ Gazette Jackass award goes to Mr. McGraw, head of Wisconsin’s Department of agriculture, trade, and consumer protection, or DATCP.

Mr. McGraw wants the residents of wisconsin to register any location in which livestock is kept.

Mr. McGraw has no rational reason for this; he just somehow got into the position of head of the department and the cooperative funding (bribery)  from the USDA just kept rolling in the door!  What’s a guy to do?

“Livestock” includes cattle and other bovine animals, swine, poultry, sheep, goats, horses and other equine animals, farm-raised deer and other cervids, gamebirds including pheasants, quail, wild turkeys, migrating waterfowl, pigeons, and exotic birds raised in captivity, bison, llamas and other camelids, ratites such as emus and ostriches, and fish.

Evidently, this is supposed to ensure that grandma’s pet goldfish doesn’t run amuck and unleash a dreaded disease on the state of Wisconsin. And, if a gaggle of migrating geese takes a dip in your pond before heading south for the winter, be prepared for a knock on the door by the Wisconsin DATCP enforcement division.

Yes, Mr. Mcgraw, for incredibly invasive policies and police-state tactics, you deserve this week’s PPJ Gazette Jackass award!

Gongratulations! Sen. Harry Reid!  You been nominated!

According to the latest campaign to encourage one and all to support the big “O’s” Health Care push, the big gun has been pulled out. The “R”…………

“Instead of joining us on the right side of history, all Republicans have come up with is this: ‘Slow down, stop everything, let’s start over.’ You think you’ve heard these same excuses before, you’re right,’’

Reid said on the Senate floor. “In this country, there were those who dug in their heels and said, ‘Slow down, it’s too early, let’s wait – things aren’t bad enough about slavery.’”
Let us examine the “right side of history” by the Democrats and how they really acted shall we?

Which Senator filibustered for over 24 hours against the Civil Rights Act in 1957 setting a record?

Senator Strom Thurman (A Democrat)

Face it folks, this is Propaganda in it’s truest forms. Currently the Democratic controlled government would like to take away gun ownership rights, monopolize small local food production, tax you more, pay you less, educate your children in a manner they see fit : if that is not Slavery, I just don’t know what else it could be.

JACKASS ALERT # 10

Round and Round the Construction Firm

It is with great sadness that we must now report that there are apparently no qualified America Owned large Construction Engineering Companies in the United States capable of installing a ventilation system in the New York Subway Manhattan area. Due to the unreported demise of these firms, China State Construction Engineering Corp, the largest contractor in China, has been awarded the $100 million dollar contract through it’s subsidiary China Construction America Co .

The company is reported to have signed over 1 Billion dollars in construction projects in the United States this year alone – including the $410 million dollar Hamilton Bridge renovation project which began in July 2009

So let me attempt to understand this.

  • American taxpayers have had the “privilege” through TARP and Stimulus Packages to bailout the Federal Government
  • Who then borrowed on our backs trillions of dollars from China to  then
  • Award contracts to Chinese contracting firms
  • Denying American Engineering firms the opportunity to profit from the American taxpayer sacrifice.

This reminds me of a Chinese Proverb “The crafty rabbit has three different entrances to its lair.”

Unfortunately with the majority of our Industries outsourced, the inability of Republocrats to stand up for American Citizens, and the lack of any true leader in our Nation; it maybe time to learn Mandarin.

I hear Rosetta Stone has a sale going. Up to $125 off and free shipping

At least they are still American owned.

JACKASS ALERT # 9   EDITED WITH SOME REALLY IMPORTANT NEWS!

I just received an alert from what has become a somewhat infamous national organization; infamous for its lack of, well, almost anything that would matter.   It is another of their “Action Alert!’s.  (Oh!  I’m so excited!)

Update:!!

Senator Kreitlow and Representative Danou

Co-Sponsorship of LRB 3242/3-Allowing the Sale of Raw Milk

“We are introducing legislation that would permit the sale of raw milk directly from Wisconsin farms in certain controlled conditions

I cannot believe these public officials attached their names to this.  As written or lifted from some old document…….this would effectively drive a large number of small producers out of business as a minimum requirement of 60 dairy cows would be necessary to engage in fresh milk sales to one of only three buyers who have cornered that market. (With a little help from their friends)

In any event if this bogus “proposal” that is being promoted as a possible draft of a bill were in fact a reality, it would be laughed out of the legislature.  This “proposal” is not properly prepared and is simply a cleaned up version of the same thing posted to several sites after the last call to sit down and shut up went out on the March 11, 2009 to stifle any meaningful protest of DATCP unconstitutional actions and policies.

2009 BILL……is not a title.  (we don’t know what it is: maybe you will be receiving a statement in the mail)

Your Wisconsin legislative period will end in May.  This “proposal” is not properly formatted, titled, or showing any basis in law.  Nor is it showing any author or who might possibly be promoting it.  No legislator will even consider it in this form; at least not one who is on the level. (It just goes to show ya! Two just popped up!) 

This “proposal” mysteriously appeared out of no where and is floating somewhere in the legislature with two new sponsors, no bill number and no one looked at this and realized it was worthless?  And it occurs to me I saw this same thing about five or six years ago somewhere else. I’ll have to look into that.

Maybe someone might have been better off to look into the Sherman Act dealing with anti-trust.  Monopolies are illegal.  So are monopsony’s. More

Below is a letter received  from Senator Kohl of Wisconsin to queries about the unconstitutional provisions of HR 2749 and the infringements on the rights of the people.  Senator Kohls letter follows this response from Paul Griepentrog.  Please note how Senator Kohl proudly proclaims all the federal funding that will be supplied to the FDA to prosecute, persecute and drive private property owners off the land for corporate interests.

It must suck to be a family farmer or herder in Wisconsin! With guys like Kohl…..Monsanto looks….almost marginal.  Marti

Dear Senator Kohl.

Your response to my concerns of the onerous regulation that will be implemented in the present food safety bills, clearly shows your lack of concerns of the impact of this legislation on small and medium producers.  It also indicates your indifference to the proposed food safety legislation as far as its inconsistencies with existing federal code and the enumerated powers of the US Constitution which was the concern I contacted you to address. 

Your intent indicates that you operate under the illusion that these bills will have any effect other than to advantage the corporate agenda by displacing direct market producers. 

Your indifference to the actual implications of these proposed programs is appalling. 

Therefore after 30 years of direct market production we have decided to discontinue fruit and vegetable production.  The revenue lost will not be available to aid the local economy. 

Thank you for thinking so little of us.  Senator Feingold never replied, as you both sit the Senate Judiciary committee, can we expect further complacency of this nature?

    Jackass Alert # 6:  Livestock Committee of the National Organic Standards Board

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    getimageThe Livestock Committee of the National Organic Standards Board is recommending that genetically engineered vaccines be allowed in organic livestock production, with no review of the vaccines to determine if they meet evaluation criteria established in the Organic Foods Production Act.

    In another round of what is coming to be viewed as absolute insanity in the wild world of genetically mutated agriculture, this “board” has now decided that it does not have to meet criteria for testing the efficacy or safety of,  genetically mutated vaccines to be used in livestock. 

    We all need to remember that any vaccine, any growth hormone or antibiotic, remains in the meat even after processing.  These toxic concoctions are also present in the urine and feces of animals subjected to their use and as such, have rendered manure unfit as a fertilizer (this after thousands of years of use as the best fertilizer).  The manure produce by animals infected with these toxic chemicals is then leached into soil and water as the now, hazardous, waste breaks down.

    And they still intend to call this “organic”?     Read the September 2009 report.

    The NOSB will consider the issue when it meets Nov. 3-5, 2009, in Washington DC. Comments must be submitted by Oct. 19.

    Dear Speaker Pelosi: About that “preserving the integrity of congress”, thing

    Leave a comment

    Jackass Alert # 5————————————————

    getimage

     

    Dear Speaker Pelosi:

    About that “preserving the integrity of congress”, thing;  Please be advised that you cannot possibly preserve that which (congress, collectively) does not possess.

    While I was stunned at Rep. Wilson’s outburst, I quickly realized what it was that shocked me.  It was his spontaneous honesty!  It was what he actually felt; what his true gut reaction was.  I can see why you feel the need to censure him; honesty cannot be tolerated in the golden halls of what was once the government of “We the people” and certainly not passionate outbursts especially from what is portrayed as your opposition.

    While I claim no appreciation for either the left or the right wing of this aberration operating as what is supposed to be the people’s government, I have to admit to my admiration for Rep. Wilson.  After all, when have we last seen any representative or senator for that matter, actually showing any passion for any cause?  Unless of course, it has the word(s), “corporation(s)” attached to it. 

    I have spent a great deal of my time watching the day to day hearings, votes and the one minute speeches called “debates”, delivered to the CSPAN camera’s in a chamber empty of but few of our elected officials and many times, none at all. 

    I have watched and listened in disbelief as massive amounts of time are wasted asking for some notable so & so’s birthday to be recognized; congratulating each other on what fine and distinguished individuals their “friends across the isle”, are.

    I have watched and listened as both factions of this true “one-party” system, have abused their majority ranking to:

    • Suspend rules to force votes;
    • To submit and pass massive legislation that none of you reads;
    • That all of you use to attach pork spending to non-related bills costing tax payers billions in what is nothing less than an attempt to buy votes at home;
    • That is in total opposition to the people you were elected to represent;
    • That is in direct conflict with our rights and liberties.
    • I have sat through committee hearings that were so obviously staged and slanted on various topics and issues, that it left me stunned and wondering at what point congress came to believe we were all so stupid we wouldn’t be able to perceive the deception taking place?

    These things and many others equally egregious are done as routine; just business.  At every opportunity congress has shown us that we are not a consideration; we just pay the bills. 

    As congressional poll ratings are dangerously close to registering in the negative, you might stop to consider why the public holds congress in such low regard.  Of course there is always the possibility that I misinterpreted to whom you were directing this comment on preserving integrity.  I of course immediately believed you were addressing this to those who pay your salaries.  I have concluded you were addressing those who believe as you do that you are somehow above and beyond the common people: you were addressing your cohorts in congress.

    Maybe a better line for you to adopt would be: “We must establish some integrity in congress” and move in that direction. 

    Just my thoughts; my humble opinion.

    Below is a list of known corporate insiders celebrating the passage of HR 2749……the seizure of the food production and supply here in the US, on behalf of corporations intending to further exploit the American public.  I suppose after receiving this monumental gift consisting of the preliminary groundwork for ending all competition and driving hundreds of thousands of family and independent farmers and ranchers out of business, a celebration was warranted.  In my article ” The Jackasses did it: HR 2749 passes the House“, I sarcastically closed with the thoughts that House members along with corporate donors were probably celebrating; turns out…..they were.  Marti

    getimageGMA president and CEO Pamela G. Bailey today commended the members of the United States House of Representatives for passing H.R. 2749, The Food Safety Enhancement Act of 2009. The bill passed the House by a vote of 283-142.

    “House passage of The Food Safety Enhancement Act of 2009 marks an important milestone,” said Ms. Bailey. “This legislation will strengthen our nation’s food safety net by placing prevention as the cornerstone of our nation’s food safety strategy and providing FDA with the resources and authorities it needs to adequately fulfill its food safety mission. Combined with increased industry resources and vigilance, this legislation represents a once in a lifetime opportunity to modernize our food safety system and restore the public’s faith in the safety and security of the food supply.

    “We applaud the House for its vision and leadership in tackling this tough issue and urge the Senate to swiftly follow suit and pass its food safety bill as quickly as possible.”

    GMA supports many of the provisions of S. 510, the FDA Food Safety Modernization Act, authored by lead sponsors U.S. Senators Richard J. Durbin (D-IL) and Judd Gregg (R-NH) and co-sponsored by Edward M. Kennedy (D-MA), Richard Burr (R-NC), Christopher J. Dodd (D-CT), Lamar Alexander (R-TN), Amy Klobuchar (D-MN) Saxby Chambliss (R-GA), Roland Burris (D-IL), Johnny Isakson (R-GA) and Tom Udall (D-NM), and will be working with HELP Committee Chairman Kennedy, Ranking Member Enzi and the entire committee in the coming weeks to develop and enact sensible, meaningful and timely food safety reform legislation.

    The “Leafy Green Marketing Agreement,” which requires producers to follow a set of rules (metrics) in the name of food safety, has already shown to be injurious for the environment, biodiversity, and organic growers in California.  The USDA is now considering a similar “Leafy Green Marketing Agreement” that would extend beyond California and Arizona to cover the entire United States­let’s help make this rule work for growers of all sizes!
     
    The USDA has scheduled a series of hearing sessions, around the country, inviting you to this perfect opportunity to share your concerns and suggestions. 
     
    Make your voice heard!­if you are able to attend, we urge you to speak on behalf of the organic and family-scale farming community.  (See below for locations and dates.)

    High Quality and Organic Growers Competitively Disadvantaged

    Producers’ experiences in California, where these metrics have been in place for several years, reveal what is at stake.  While food safety is a legitimate national concern, organic and small-scale farmers bear a disproportionate economic burden of these metrics.  Consider this:

    Jackass Alert # 2: USDA welcomes Codex Committee

    Leave a comment

    This is akin to one of those nightmares you think will never end.

    This is such a crock even I can’t believe it.  This is the actual public statement by USDA claiming they heard substantial support for NAIS/Premises ID.  What were these people smoking?

    “Officials with the Department of Agriculture said they heard

    substantial support for animal disease traceability during a series of

    public meetings but many animal owners indicated concerns. Cost,

    privacy, bureaucracy, liability in the event of a disease outbreak,

    and the religious implications of such animal identification are

    behind ongoing opposition to the department’s National Animal

    Identification System.” More
