Should kids living in the neighborhood be exposed to this or should events like this be held in more private venues?

When I was a kid, we had a saying, though in all honesty, I suppose it was as much of a taunt as a saying … it went like this; “Sticks and stones may break my bones but names can never hurt me!” In short, it meant that if the best argument you could muster up was an ad hominem attack, go back to the playground sandbox where you belong.

The only way to resolve differences is to establish common ground, start with that and then proceed until no further compromise is socially acceptable. This method has long been employed in order to develop social standards and norms … the social fabric that allows for and creates those rules by which society has, by and large at least, agreed to live within.

There have been countless examples where, for the most part, these have worked very well. There have also been numerous examples wherein these have been used to institute and legalize egregious oppression. What we are currently seeing, are hitherto unprecedented levels of forced compromise in order to appease the mere fringes.

What Are Natural Law, Common Law and Corporate Law

This article is not meant to be a comprehensive break down of the law or the many perversions of the law, but rather a look at just how convoluted the law has become. Despite what many people may believe, the laws of this land are arbitrarily enforced and what passes for law, often is not by any legal definition, any kind of law at alli.

Why is a corporation a person?

Once again, people are often confused when it comes to legal terminology, often even insisting that “details” are not all that important or are somehow or another more extemporaneous in nature and not necessarily relevant. Believe it or not however, there is a reason for the old adage, “The devil is in the details” … because indeed, those little details can screw you to the point of losing everything that you have ever owned in addition to your freedom. While deciding whether or not Corporations are Persons or even people, may seem like an easy question to answer with a definitive and resolute “No!” … as a very wise man once said, the devil is in the details.

First, it becomes necessary to understand exactly what is meant by a “Person”. Simple right? Or is it?

Did You Ever Miss Your Television

When I was a small kid, we never had a television set. I am guessing, looking back, that this was probably a good thing as we had to go outside, use our imaginations and make up our own entertainment as we went along. We had plenty of music to help us pass the time, including a radio and even what passed for our own versions of CDs back in the day, though if I ever go talking about those old eight tracks, somebody may get the wrong impression and start thinking I am getting old … and I just will not have that.

Still, we never really had the chance to know what we were missing, so all things being equal, we never missed television all that much.

One of the issues I wish to explore here is the ability of the governments and the proverbial powers that be to obfuscate through the utilization of very effective disinformation campaigns. This disinformation has proven to be very effective and is one of the primary tools for deflecting any questions about the world and the economic and financial systems in particular. The end result, when someone does begin to present the truth, cries of “Oh! You are one of THOSE people!” or “That's all crazy talk” or “Oh here we go with the conspiracy theories again” … etc etc et al ad infinitum … fill the air and any subsequent knowledge that is passed on is either ignored completely or silenced before it can reach its intended audience.

How do we restore America as a Constitutional Republic

In joining a group recently, I was asked to explain what I would personally recommend (or do, had I the proper authority to do so) to restore the American system back to its original intent as a Representative Constitutional Republic.

The Bold Print is highlighting the answers I gave to the original question and the print thereafter, is something of an explanation as to why I would take these steps and what I hope would be accomplished by their implementation.

Demand a comprehensive understanding of not only the Constitution, but of the Federalist and Anti-Federalist papers for all people electing to seek public office and for any and all judges, at every level.

What is the role of government?
Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive

Government should be relatively easy to define … but is it? Why do we need government? These days, government is effectively little more than the ruling class, creating seemingly arbitrary laws and regulations, and pawning off its responsibility to others. Why is government necessary though? What is the actual purpose of government? Can people live without the formal establishment of government and effectively govern themselves?

Why do we need government?

Are we already living in the police state
Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive

The government is definitely smart enough to know that they cannot just come in and declare themselves to be in absolute and complete power. The nation would rapidly devolve into a revolutionary state. Likewise, bringing in foreign troops to “quell” riots and domestic disputes would end up virtually the same, with the American people rising up in arms.

Thus, if the USA is ever going to commit to the establishment of a police state … as it already has as far as I am concerned, though that remains subject to debate … it must do so incrementally, constantly testing the will and the veracity of the constitutional patriots who remain … and among whom I have no shame about proudly declaring myself.

Is Washington DC Part of the United States of America?

Recently, a seemingly distinguished person effectively dismissed the idea that the Federal District of Washington, District of Colombia, is not in fact part of these independent but united States of America … and while it would seem an easy question to answer concisely and lay to rest, such matters of law and legalese are never quite so simple in reality.

As my answer, even working largely from memory, has turned into nearly six thousand words, I have included the very short version of my answer in the opening phases with other observations, comments and references throughout the rest of the article. The rest of the article looks at the corresponding perversion and combination of the economic and legal systems and some of how it relates to the lack of liberty and freedom today.

The Left and Right Political Paradigm and Circular Logic
Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive
Pin It

For those that believe and put faith in the Legal Fiction we know as the “State”, there is often a great deal of confusion regarding the whole “Left/Right Paradigm” and which ideologies are on the left and which are on the right. Many of these same people often say what they think, though not necessarily what they mean, which is almost inevitable given the abuse and “evolution” of language resulting in words having meanings very different from their historical meaning. (For example, the current definition of what many of us here are old enough to remember as the # or Pound Sign, is now commonly referred to as a Hashtag … which is a natural evolution of a word. Whereas Democracy is inherently evil and ultimately nothing more than mob rule … the introduction of democracy as a means of saying republic, is a perversion of the word and the language)

FROM BLACKS LAW:

Persons are the subject of rights and duties; and, as a subject of a right, the person is the object of the correlative duty, and conversely. The subject of a right has been called by Professor Holland, the person of inherence ; the subject of a duty, the person of incidence. "Entitled" and "bound" are the terms in common use in English and for most purposes they are adequate. Every full citizen Is a person; other human beings, namely, subjects who are not Citizens, may be persons. But not every human being is necessarily a person, for a person Is capable of rights and duties, and there may well be human beings having no legal rights, as was the case with slaves in English law. • • • A person is such, not because he Is human, but because rights and duties are ascribed to him. The person Is the legal subject or substance of which the rights and duties are attributes. An individual human being considered as having such attributes is what lawyers call a natural person. Pollock, First Book of Jurisprudence. 110. Gray, Nature and Sources of Law, ch. IL
