Explaining Petition Structure - Recall Petitions for U S Senators

In Perpetuum has written an article explaining the Structure and Substance of the Recall Petitions.

By In Perpetuum Rights

As the groups who are interested in the Recall Petitions gather and examine these first drafts here at, there are obvious questions of structure and substance.

While the author has done considerable research in support of the cause of these Petitions it is well understood that each State, and each group that might adopt this cause may make some alterations.

Uniformity being the key to cooperation between the groups, and cooperation being the key to the success of gathering the maximum number of signatures, most of these Petitions follow the same basic format, save a little adjustment to Michigan and New Hampshire are probably in order. FULL STORY

Federal Reserve Policy Audit Legislation ‘Gutted,’ Paul Says

Experience teaches us that it is much easier to prevent an enemy from posting themselves than it is to dislodge them after they have got possession.

George Washington

By Bob Ivry | Bloomberg

Oct. 30 (Bloomberg) -- Representative Ron Paul, the Texas Republican who has called for an end to the Federal Reserve, said legislation he introduced to audit monetary policy has been “gutted” while moving toward a possible vote in the Democratic-controlled House.

The bill, with 308 co-sponsors, has been stripped of provisions that would remove Fed exemptions from audits of transactions with foreign central banks, monetary policy deliberations, transactions made under the direction of the Federal Open Market Committee and communications between the Board, the reserve banks and staff, Paul said today.

Paul, a member of the House Financial Services Committee, said Mel Watt, a Democrat from North Carolina, has eliminated “just about everything” while preparing the legislation for formal consideration. Watt is chairman of the panel’s domestic monetary policy and technology subcommittee. FULL STORY

Nine U.S. banks seized in largest one-day haul

By Sam Mircovich and Edwin Chan

LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - U.S. authorities seized nine failed banks on Friday, the most in a single day since the financial crisis began and the latest stark sign that substantial parts of the nation's banking industry are being crippled by bad loans.

The move brought the total number of failed banks in 2009 to 115 -- their highest annual level since 1992 -- with analysts expecting more to come. Among the lenders seized Friday was Los Angeles-based California National Bank, in what was the fourth-largest U.S. bank failure this year.

The largest institution to fail in the current financial crisis was Washington Mutual, which boasted $307 billion in assets when it was shuttered in September 2008. FULL STORY

U.S. Stocks Slide, Extend Weekly Drop, on Consumer, CIT Concern

By Rita Nazareth

Oct. 30 (Bloomberg) -- U.S. stocks tumbled the most since July after declines in personal spending and consumer confidence and the threat of a CIT Group Inc. bankruptcy raised concern over the durability of the economic recovery. The dollar and Treasuries gained, while commodities retreated.

CIT, the commercial lender, plunged 17 percent as investor Carl Icahn agreed to support its prepackaged bankruptcy plan. Citigroup Inc. tumbled on a report that banking analyst Mike Mayo predicted a $10 billion writedown for this quarter. American Express Co. and Walt Disney Co. slid as Commerce Department data showed a drop in purchases and the Reuters/University of Michigan sentiment index weakened. MetLife Inc. lost 7.6 percent after a third quarterly loss. FULL STORY

Congress passes bill to fund government through December 18

By Andy Sullivan

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - A temporary measure that would keep the U.S. government running through December 18 cleared Congress on Thursday, giving lawmakers more time to work on spending bills for the current fiscal year.

The measure now heads to the White House for President Barack Obama to sign into law, presumably before current government funding runs out on November 1.

It was attached to a $32.24 billion bill that increases the Environmental Protection Agency's budget by 26 percent. FULL STORY

Should Michigan Opt Out of Social Security?

The first question that needs to be asked; “Is Social Security VOLUNTARY?

Well, according to Sec. 218 of the Social Security Act, Social Security is VOLUNTARY and the States formed a Voluntary Agreement to cover state and local EMPLOYEES. But, don’t take my word for it, CLICK HERE and read the definition of terms for yourself.

But keep in mind, that while the states made voluntary agreements to OFFER this insurance to it’s employees, it does not say that employees must accept this coverage.

Northwest Ordinance (1787)
Section 14.
"Art. 2. The inhabitants of the said territory shall always be entitled to the benefits of
… representation of the people in the legislature…"

"Art. 3. "… their property, rights, and liberty, they shall never be invaded or disturbed"
Declaration of Independence (1776),
"The Organic Laws of the United States of
America." (Title 1 United States Code)
"We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.--That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed…"
"As in our intercourse with our fellow-men certain principles of morality are assumed to exist, without which society would be impossible, so certain inherent rights lie at the foundation of all action, and upon a recognition of them alone can free institutions be maintained. These inherent rights have never been more happily expressed than in the Declaration of Independence, that new evangel of liberty to the people: 'We hold these truths to be self-evident' — that is so plain that their truth is recognized upon their mere statement — 'that all men are endowed' — not by edicts of Emperors, or decrees of Parliament, or acts of Congress, but 'by their Creator with certain inalienable rights' — that is, rights which cannot be bartered away, or given away, or taken away except in punishment of crime — 'and that among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness, and to secure these' — not grant them but secure them — 'governments are instituted among men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed.'
Butchers' Union Co. v. Crescent City Co., 111 U.S. 746, 756, 4 S.Ct. 652 (1884) J. Fields concurring
"His rights are such as existed by the law of the land long antecedent to the organization of the State, and can only be taken away from him by due process of law and in accordance with the Constitution." Hale v. Henkle, 201 U.S. 43, 47 1905
"The very purpose of a Bill of Rights was to withdraw certain subjects from the vicissitudes of political controversy, to place them beyond the reach of majorities and officials and to establish them as legal principles to be applied by the courts. One's right to life, liberty, and property, to free speech, a free press, freedom of worship and assembly, and other fundamental rights may not be submitted to vote; they depend on the outcome of no elections. " (emphasis added) West Virginia Board of Education v. Barnette, 319 U.S. 624, 638 (1943)(Opinion, J. Jackson)


Purpose of Agreement
Sec. 218. [42 U.S.C. 418] (a)(1) The Commissioner of Social Security shall, at the request of any State, enter into an agreement with such State for the purpose of extending the insurance system established by this title to services performed by individuals as employees of such State or any political subdivision thereof. Each such agreement shall contain such provisions, not inconsistent with the provisions of this section, as the State may request.
(2) Notwithstanding section 210(a), for the purposes of this title the term “employment” includes any service included under an agreement entered into under this section.

This question was posed at a luncheon forum, by Paul R. Farago, Director and Senior Advisor Cascade Policy Institute on June 23, 1997.

Let's say you're, oh, 39 years old and expect to work until your about 68. Which retirement deal would you choose if you had the freedom?

One in which you would begin getting back all the money you've put in, plus a market rate of return -- starting when you hit 134 years young? Or a plan in which your payroll contributions, and those of your employer, grow at the far faster speed of the stock market or, if you prefer, with the certainty of an insurance annuity?

Likewise, if misfortune should hit and you die before your time, would you prefer a plan whose death benefits might pay for the cold cuts at your wake? Or would you choose one substantial enough to send your kids to college?

Apologies for the embarrassingly easy questions, but I'm afraid the gap in both dollars and sense between the current Social Security system on the one hand, and privatized alternatives on the other, is just that stark. Mortifying, if you will.

These disparities are pointed out very well in "Should Minnesota Opt Out of Social Security?" by Paul R. Farago of Oregon, who describes how and why the legislature in Salem recently petitioned to allow the entire state of Oregon to do just that. The idea, as you will read, is not nearly as wild or untenable at it may first seem.

For example, the federal government, until 1983, allowed certain groups -- public employees, mainly -- to leave the system. Which is to say, this is not a radical and untested idea. Citing one ongoing illustration, Mr. Farago writes:

The 5,000 public employees of Galveston, Brazoria and Matagorda counties in east Texas no longer pay taxes into the Social Security system. Instead their payments, still matched by their employers, go into a private plan operated much like an annuity. . . . Since 1981, that return has averaged 6.5 percent, compared to Social Security's return of about 2.2 percent for a worker born in 1950. Participants are fully vested immediately, so they can change jobs and take their retirement funds with them.

Also for critical example is Chile's remarkable success since 1980 in FULL STORY

Last night Glenn Beck interviewed Rick Gornto, the Galveston Plan Designer. Take a look at where Galveston employees are compared to those who receive Social Security.

Workers making $17,000 a year are expected to receive about 50 percent more per month on our alternative plan than on Social Security - $1,036 instead of $683. [See the Figure.]

Workers making $26,000 a year will make almost double Social Security's return - $1,500 instead of $853.

Workers making $51,000 a year will get $3,103 instead of $1,368.

Workers making $75,000 or more will nearly triple Social Security - $4,540 instead of $1,645.

Galveston County's survivorship benefits pay four times a worker's annual salary - a minimum of $75,000 to a maximum $215,000 - versus Social Security, which forces widows to wait until age 60 to qualify for benefits, or provides 75 percent of a worker's salary for school-age children.

In Galveston, if the worker dies before retirement, the survivors receive not only the full survivorship but get generous accidental death benefits, too. Galveston County's disability benefit also pays more: 60 percent of an individual's salary, better than Social Security's. FULL STORY

This article by Mark Brandly along with the rest of the information her should fully educate everyone to be able to make an informed response to the question.

The Social Security Scam

Mark Brandly is a professor of economics at Ferris State University and an adjunct scholar of the Ludwig von Mises Institute.

The release of the 2009 Social Security Trustees Report indicates that the current economic crisis has negatively impacted the Social Security budget. It's now projected that by 2016 Social Security spending will exceed revenues. According to the report, the financial condition of the Social Security program "remains challenging" and "need(s) to be addressed soon." A look at the numbers shows us the severity of the Social Security budget problem.

Social Security is a "pay-as-you-go" system. This means that when you work, the government takes your money and gives it to Social Security recipients. In order to get workers to accept this system, the government promises to take other people's money and give it to you when you retire. Think of it as an exponentially larger version of Bernie Madoff's Ponzi scheme. FULL STORY

The Law (Stirling Translation, 1874)

by Frederic Bastiat

The law perverted! The law — and, in its wake, all the collective forces of the nation — the law, I say, not only diverted from its proper direction, but made to pursue one entirely contrary! The law become the tool of every kind of avarice, instead of being its check! The law guilty of that very iniquity which it was its mission to punish! Truly, this is a serious fact, if it exists, and one to which I feel bound to call the attention of my fellow citizens.

We hold from God the gift which, as far as we are concerned, contains all others, Life — physical, intellectual, and moral life.

But life cannot support itself. He who has bestowed it, has entrusted us with the care of supporting it, of developing it, and of perfecting it. To that end, He has provided us with a collection of wonderful faculties; He has plunged us into the midst of a variety of elements. It is by the application of our faculties to these elements, that the phenomena of assimilation and of appropriation, by which life pursues the circle which has been assigned to it, are realized.

Existence, faculties, assimilation — in other words, personality, liberty, property — this is man.

It is of these three things that it may be said, apart from all demagogue subtlety, that they are anterior and superior to all human legislation.

It is not because men have made laws, that personality, liberty, and property exist. On the contrary, it is because personality, liberty, and property exist beforehand, that men make laws. What, then, is law? As I have said elsewhere, it is the collective organization of the individual right to lawful defense.FULL STORY

They will say you want a Civil War...

While some may find distasteful the reference to the two parties as Gangs who have blighted our Nation and reduced our Freedom to a shadow of an empty promise, it is clear that their mutual target has been our freedom, to give rise to their ever increasing power. The later I find very distasteful and treasonous. Our rediscovery of our Freedom, Power, and Liberty is the solution to the Class Warfare and eventual Civil War that they alone foment.

As for the title of this article, the “They” is the media and government, the “you” is the people like the Continental Congress who have an opportunity to press for an actual change in things for America.

This author has made clear his support for the efforts for a November 2009 Continental Congress. The idea of the Recall Petitions is hoped to be a central theme at this meeting of the elected Delegates from each state. FULL STORY

Will Michigan Fair Tax if passed bring JOBS to Michigan?

My answer to that question is a big fat


In spite of what the Michigan Fair Tax promoters promise about jobs, lets take a look at the real reason that companies are moving operations off shore.

I have three (3) articles here that tell the real reasons. It's the cost of employees benefits along with the failing Federal Reserve Notes commonly referred to as "The Dollar"

My first article is about Amway moving it's financial centers to Costa Rica.

Confidential memo shows Amway could move hundreds of West Michigan jobs to Costa Rica

The Ada-based direct seller on Oct. 5 told employees it was moving finance functions currently handled locally to a new "enterprise process center" in Costa Rica.

Other centers are planned for central Europe and Asia that will affect operations in those regions.

"This move will have a substantial impact on current finance positions in North America, Latin America and Europe, though specific impact and numbers will not be clear for six to eight weeks," a fact sheet provided to employees said. FULL STORY

Does the Michigan Fair Tax address this issue? No, and it will not stop Amway or any other company from moving it's financial departments off shore. But then, isn't this what Peter Schiff is telling them to do in his 'RED ALERT" below? Move your money off shore and out of the "Dollar"?

Next we have Ford Moter Company and the U.A.W.

How many times have you heard in the last 30 years, when making a decision for a career, to go for the benefits. Never mind about your real interests, pick something that will get you into a company that offers the best benefits.

Now that baby boomers are starting to retire from those companies, and the economy is failing, companies are finding it harder to pay out what has been committed to and continue to offer the same to the present workforce.

Union Votes Go Against Cuts at Ford

Members of at least five local chapters of the United Automobile Workers union have turned down the proposed changes, which include a six-year wage freeze for newly hired workers, some job-classification changes and a provision that bars the union from striking over demands for better pay and benefits through 2015.

Ford, the only one of the three Detroit automakers to avoid bankruptcy this year, says it needs the modifications to remain competitive with General Motors and Chrysler, whose workers agreed to similar deals in the spring. Compared to its crosstown rivals, Ford has been surging.

Only about a third of the locals representing Ford’s 41,000 union workers had finished voting by Tuesday, but already the potential for successful ratification was diminishing unless U.A.W. leaders could quickly contain growing opposition among rank-and-file members.

At Ford’s largest assembly plant, where nearly 4,000 workers build pickup trucks and small sport utility vehicles near Kansas City, Mo., 92 percent voted against the deal, according to results posted on the Local 249 Web site. Workers at five plants in Michigan also have voted it down. FULL STORY

Does anyone here believe that passing the proposed Michigan Fair Tax will solve Ford's problems? I say it won't because the Fair Tax doesn't address these issues which are the cause of lost jobs in Michigan.

Not only are the UNIONS responsible for creating this mess, but by their lobbing for legislation mandating that employers offer health care, they have given the Insurance Companies a monopoly forcing the cost of insurance and health care to go sky hi. But, who want's to talk about that?

The third article deals with the Michigan Budget cuts on Education.

This is an Editorial published today in the Muskegon Chronicle.

Editorial: Lawmakers: Fund education now

Now, comes Gov. Granholm with another $127 per-pupil cut because of failing tax revenue. She also cut $51 million in extra funds for 39 wealthier districts. Some say this is a political maneuver. Whatever it is, no effort is being made to fund education by cutting something else or raising taxes largely because of irresponsible, partisan politics.

In response, the State Board of Education in an emergency meeting Monday called on local districts to continue working on Project ReImagine, an initiative to find “bold, innovative ideas” that will cut costs and improve education at the pre-K-12 level.

“We’re looking at the new 3 Rs,” said state Superintendent of Public Instruction Mike Flanagan, who chairs the State Board meetings, in a prepared release. “The solution will be a mix of revenues, reforms and reductions. We need all three.” FULL STORY

The other day I had a neighbor who is a substitute teacher complain to me that these cuts are really hurting. The schools can no longer afford to keep playground attendants and now teachers have to monitor the playgrounds. Guess what, before the teachers union, parents volunteered or the teachers did it. But as my neighbor informed me, they can't have parents volunteer anymore. WHY? Well, we are all potential child molesters. Shame on all of us.

The article goes on to say:

We say no more. One of the basic responsibilities of state government is to fund education, along with public safety, public welfare and roads.

Call or write your legislators today and demand that they properly fund schools. If they ask for your ideas, suggest expanding the sales tax to cover more items and services. If you don’t like that idea, ask for cuts in legislative pay and benefits, effective immediately; or cut the credits to movie companies doing business here; or allow sales of alcohol before noon on Sunday. Even all these options combined will not raise the money needed, however.

What the writer doesn't mention is cutting ADMINISTRATIVE COST so that the money per student goes to educate the student instead of, yup, you guessed it, BENEFITS!!!

Again, these are issues that the Fair Tax supporters ADMIT the Fair Tax doesn't address. So what will the Fair Tax do? It will raise more revenue for the state so that the state can keep the status quo. You still have to register with a SS# to get a prebate which is a Constitutional Violation of your Right to Privacy.

The mere fact that the Fair Tax will show people how much they are paying, just isn't enough of a reason for me to support this Amendment of our Michigan Constitution.

Peter Schiff issues a Red Alert: "Get out of the US dollar"

Gold Blast-Off Starts Friday?

By Patrick A. Heller
October 27, 2009

As we have seen previously in 2009 with large Treasury debt auctions and options expirations, the price of gold was clobbered before these events, and not allowed to rise quickly until after the last Treasury auction closed on Thursday afternoon. I see no reason to expect a different pattern this week.

H.R. 1207, the bill in Congress calling for an audit of the Federal Reserve System (that would also likely result in an audit of the U.S. government’s gold holdings) is under current consideration in the House Financial Services Committee. Hearings began last month. With over 330 co-sponsors of this bill and of the Senate’s companion bill S. 604 (over 75 percent of all members of Congress), there would be reasonable prospects of enactment.

A couple of months ago, the Fed hired a government-relations lobbyist to combat H.R.1207. Various Fed officials have tried to intimidate Congress and the public by stating that enactment of this legislation would result in higher interest rates, higher consumer prices and a falling value of the U.S. dollar. None of these threats seemed to have stopped H.R. 1207 from moving along. FULL STORY

Who OWNS Foreclosed U.S. Properties?, Part I: Scam in the making

A thanks to Edward Harrison who publishes the blog “” for his superb explanation of foreclosure and title issues dealing with “foreclosed” properties – in his commentary “What are the legal rights of lenders and homeowners in foreclosure?” It was that article which inspired me to write about some of the legal ramifications, based upon his research and analysis.

There is a lot of material in Mr. Harrison's commentary, so for those interested in this issue, I recommend going to the source to read it in full. I intend to focus on two of the extremely important issues in that piece: the question of who holds title to a securitized mortgage, and (just as important) who has “standing” to initiate and prosecute a foreclosure.

For people with no familiarity with legal jargon, who has “standing” in a legal proceeding is a question of “proximity” to the case before the court. The test for this issue generally being some direct proprietary interest. FULL STORY

Fall Of The Republic - The Presidency Of Barack H Obama - The Full Movie

Fall Of The Republic documents how an offshore corporate cartel is bankrupting the US economy by design. Leaders are now declaring that world government has arrived and that the dollar will be replaced by a new global currency.

President Obama has brazenly violated Article 1 Section 9 of the US Constitution by seating himself at the head of United Nations' Security Council, thus becoming the first US president to chair the world body.

This film reveals the architecture of the New World Order and what the power elite have in store for humanity. More importantly it communicates how We The People can retake control of our government, turn the criminal tide and bring the tyrants to justice.

Pocket Constitutions for U.S. Army Soldiers


I received the following email at the inbox of the Daily Paul.

Dear Daily Paul:

I'm an Army 2LT at an AIT unit in Fort Sill Oklahoma. I've noticed that there is no training of Soldiers on the Constitution that they are sworn to defend. Although I cannot modify our Soldier's training schedule, I am in a position to give away pocket copies of the Constitution.

If your readers would like to donate pocket copies of the Constitution to U.S. Army Soldiers I can ensure that they will be distributed fairly. Our unit processes approximately 60 Soldiers a week. You can order Pocket Constitution - Citizens Rule Book HERE.

The address to send them to is:

Bravo Battery, 1st Battalion, 78th Field Artillery
428th Field Artillery Brigade
Fort Sill, Oklahoma 73503-6202

Until RJ Harris can get elected to congress and propose his bill to make constitutional training mandatory at basic training, this may be the best way to move forward. I would appreciate your support.

I must also ask that you understand I am NOT requesting a donation, but rather informing you that I can distrubte Constitutions to Soldiers. If you feel you can share some version of this on your website, I would appreciate it. Anonymity would be preferred, as well as re-stating that I am NOT asking for donations. I am merely hoping that the concerned citizens who want to make a difference are aware of an opportunity to make a difference.

Thank you.

Thomas Jefferson's Prophetic Wisdom

Writer of the Declaration of Independence and one of America's Founding Fathers, Thomas Jefferson said some rather prophetic statements when compared to today's current political conditions.

"It is incumbent on every generation to pay its own debts as it goes. A principle which if acted on would save one-half the wars of the world."

Thomas Jefferson

Does the Fair Tax address this? Sadly no. The Fair Tax only want's to shift the burden away from the Privilege Corporations and place it on the back of the citizen.

"I predict future happiness for Americans if they can prevent the government from wasting the labors of the people under the pretense of taking care of them."

Thomas Jefferson

This is what government is doing today, wasting the labors of the people under the pretense of taking care of them.

Does the Fair Tax address this issue. NO. It only exchanges one method of collection for another, wasting the labors of the people, another pretense of "Government is "God" and will take care of you."

"When we get piled upon one another in large cities, as in Europe, we shall become as corrupt as Europe,"

Thomas Jefferson

Does the Fair Tax address the corruption? No, it only continues to feed the Beast when we should be confronting the beast head on.

"To compel a man to furnish contributions of money for the propagation of opinions which he disbelieves and abhors, is sinful and tyrannical."

Thomas Jefferson

The Fair Taxers would have you continue to fund the government who compels you to furnish contributions of money for things which you believe to be sinful and tyrannical.

"A wise and frugal government,
...leave men free to regulate their own pursuits of industry and improvement, and shall not take from the mouth of labor the bread it has earned - this is the sum of good government."
Thomas Jefferson

The Fair Tax by their own promoters mouths, admit that the Fair Tax does not address one of the root issues that Thomas Jefferson warned us about.

God Bless our Country and God Bless us.

To include "v Fair Tax" in the title of these videos is a bait and switch. The plan isn't mentioned, except in passing, by the interviewer, Geo. Noory (at 7:31, part 1). The issue examined is getting rid of the IRS.
Misleading, Rose
There are two major problems with the proposed "Fair Tax":

By Attorney Tom Cryer

1. It fails to put the government back on its intended 1500 calorie diet, which is an essential step if we are to put the government back in its limited and very specific role--after all, the freedom movement is not about money, it's about restoring a Constitutional republic that confines itself to those few powers delegated to it; and

2. Moderation in Constitutional excess is an improvement, but it is not enough.

The first: The object of the freedom movement and of Truth Attack is to "put the federal government back in its box . . . one tentacle at a time." While many flail away at the limbs of the tree of tyranny, we need to chop at the roots. The founding fathers knew they had to restrain the new federal agency government because the second they injected power into its veins it would crave and demand more. That is the nature of government, to seek more power at the expense of liberty. One of the chains they put on the government was the limitations on not only its taxing authority, but on the manner in which it could tax. They made it "impossible" for the federal government to impose a mandatory tax on citizens . . . period. The 16th Amendment did not change that (See the Supreme Court in Brushaber, Peck v. Lowe, Baltic Mining, etc., etc., etc.).

If one compares the powers granted the limited federal government, including the enabling clauses of various amendments, to the budget headings alone, he would discover that there are many departments for which he cannot find any Constitutional authority. I did that for the 2007 budget in researching the book I was writing, "Liberty Lost, A Treasure Map to Buried Freedom", and when I moved those extra-Constitutional expenditures (headings alone, no drilling down and finding many other usurpations) into their own column, I found that 56% of the federal budget is devoted to expenditures the federal governme0nt had no right or power to incur in the first place.

Those excesses could not happen without there first being an excess in the exercise of taxing authority, in the case of the income tax, the taxing of rights. The abuse and misapplicaiton of the income tax has enabled the government to break through the financial barrier imposed by the founding fathers. The only way to ensure that the government does not outgrow its britches is to put it back on its intended limited diet. It has broken into the feed shed and the fair tax doesn't drive it back out of there.

The second: In an interview with Joe Banister I asked him what he thought about the fair tax proposal and his response was that the IRS would abuse and misrepresent any tax it was entrusted with administering. A former Special Agent with the IRS's C.I.D., he should know. While I know of no reason to question, and don't doubt, the honesty, integrity and good intentions of those advocating the fair tax, those honorable men and women will not be the ones who administer it. Substituting one tax on our right to earn a living with another is not solving the problem, either to protect our other rights (the power to tax is the power to destroy) or to limit the federal government's financial ability to exceed its authority.

With that starting point, that the tax as applied (not as written) is taxing our right to earn a living through our own labor, and is being applied to receipts that are not income in the first place, doing it less is not enough. I'm sure that Rodney King would not have been satisfied with the cops' merely slowing the pace of their blows. Neither am I.

We are entitled to our rights, every one of them, and if the government is permitted to tax/destroy one it can and will tax/destroy another. The IRS cannot be trusted to follow the written law, which does not impose any liability for the tax on working America, so why would they stop there? Privileges, not rights, are taxed. Does the government grant you its permission to exercise a right? No. It grants privileges and can tax those privileges because it has the power to destroy privileges by merely denying them. They have no authority to tax/destroy our rights, though, because those come from a higher sovereignty.

The Tennesee Supreme Court said it best in Jack Cole v. McFarland. Governments can only tax privileges and only the "privileged" enjoy those. If everyone can engage in an activity then it is not the exercise of a privilege and it is not a subject of taxation. The fair tax would only be a moderation in Constitutional excess. Moderation is not enough. We have to insist on complete compliance because every thread of that document is precious. You cannot injure one part of the Constitution without the rest feeling the pain.

The fair tax would allow the illegal and unconstitutional application of the income tax to our labor, whether as written or as misapplied, would continue. Nothing would be accomplished.

34th coolest summer in the last 114 years!

Here's a quote from the Federal agency that runs the Natn'l Weather Service.
Doesn't this look pretty newsworthy?
Have you seen it in the mainstream media? I haven't.

Problem is that it does not fit the party line of the global warming fanatics. Gee, if it is that much cooler, why are we talking about Cap & Trade legislation which will raise everybody's costs of energy? Doesn't something like this FACT need to be weighed into the international discussion about supposed global warming based on model forecasts about which considerable scientific doubt exists? There are increasing scientific dissents to the supposed consensus view that mankind is warming the planet and all manner of disasters will result. But you really have to look hard for them to be reported in the mainstream media.

"The average June-August 2009 summer temperature for the contiguous United States was below average – the 34th coolest on record, according to a preliminary analysis by NOAA’s National Climatic Data Center in Asheville, N.C. August was also below the long-term average. The analysis is based on records dating back to 1895. "
34th coolest summer in the last 114 years!

But not in the newspapers. Guess it’s not news.

Guess What: The Next Housing Bubble Is Already Underway

It's back!
You see, we've always just assumed that after experiencing an epic hangover following the housing party, there'd be no way we'd rush headlong into the same bubble right away.

But we were wrong -- the housing bubble is back. Sure, prices aren't at their old levels, but everything else is in place.

Generous government involvement is back. Fear of missing out on good deals is back, and yes, even no-money-down is back.

Higher jobless rates could be new normal

By TOM RAUM, Associated Press Writer
Monday, October 19, 2009

Even with an economic revival, many U.S. jobs lost during the recession may be gone forever and a weak employment market could linger for years.

That could add up to a "new normal" of higher joblessness and lower standards of living for many Americans, some economists are suggesting.

The words "it's different this time" are always suspect. But economists and policy makers say the job-creating dynamics of previous recoveries can't be counted on now.

Here's why:

_ The auto and construction industries helped lead the nation out of past recessions. But the carnage among Detroit's automakers and the surplus of new and foreclosed homes and empty commercial properties make it unlikely these two industries will be engines of growth anytime soon. FULL STORY

Revised formula puts 1 in 6 Americans in poverty

By HOPE YEN Associated Press Writer

WASHINGTON (AP) -- The level of poverty in America is even worse than first believed.

A revised formula for calculating medical costs and geographic variations show that approximately 47.4 million Americans last year lived in poverty, 7 million more than the government's official figure.

The disparity occurs because of differing formulas the Census Bureau and the National Academy of Science use for calculating the poverty rate. The NAS formula shows the poverty rate to be at 15.8 percent, or nearly 1 in 6 Americans, according to calculations released this week. That's higher than the 13.2 percent, or 39.8 million, figure made available recently under the original government formula.

That measure, created in 1955, does not factor in rising medical care, transportation, child care or geographical variations in living costs. Nor does it consider non-cash government aid when calculating income. As a result, official figures released last month by Census may have overlooked millions of poor people, many of them 65 and older. FULL STORY

Attorney Tommy Cryer on Income Tax v. Fair Tax

I think that before anyone agrees to support or promote the Michigan FairTax or Federal FairTax, they should take the time to;

1. Read each bill for themselves.

2. Educate themselves by doing like those of us who oppose the FairTax did. Read the IRS code. Oh, it's to boring! Oh, who has time to do that? Oh, then in my estimation, you aren't qualified to make a decision on taxes period and should not even be allowed to vote on the issue.

This video is for educational purposes only. Attorney, Tom Cryer, won a unanimous NOT GUILTY verdict in federal district court defeating the IRS's claim that Tom "willfully" failed to file federal income tax returns. Tom refused to file tax returns because the IRS could not show him any law making him liable for 'filing' a tax return.

Yet Another Government Insult to Retirement Incomes

by Nilus Mattive 10-20-09
Retirees are rightfully angry about Social
Security’s inability to hand them realistic
cost-of-living increases.
Washington recently issued another piece of official bad news — Social Security recipients won’t be getting one single penny in cost-of-living increases next year.

The news wasn’t entirely a surprise. And, sure, President Obama has asked Congress to send out another one-time payment of $250 to more than 50 million seniors as a little relief (emphasis on “little”).

But whatever way you slice it, this Social Security snafu highlights two simple facts that we all need torecognize,no matter what stage of life we’re in …

First, the Social Security system is flawed on MANY levels.

Second, we should only depend on our private investments to truly sustain us in our golden years.

I’ll talk more about two steps you can take for higher income in a moment. First, let’s start with my initial assertion …

Four Reasons Social Security Is Completely Flawed

Reason #1: A pay-as-you-go structure. [What is this Social Security Trust Fund we keep hearing about?] emphases mine. I’ve talked about it before, but it’s worth repeating … Social Security’s pay-as-you-go structure is essentially a giant ponzi scheme.

Ostensibly, we’re all paying into our “own” retirement futures every time money gets siphoned out of our paychecks and into the government kitty.

But realistically, our future payments depend on future workers. And that means something has to expand indefinitely — either the workforce or the tax rate. Otherwise, future benefits are going to have to shrink in some way, shape, or form.

Reason #2: Rising life expectancies. Don’t get me wrong … I’m glad we all stand a good chance of living longer, healthier, more productive lives than the generations of yore. But the side effect for Social Security is additional strain.

Remember, Social Security was designed in the 1930s, when people lived to an average age of 60. Today, the average American is hitting 76!

The end result is another strike against the system’s ability to pay out promised benefits to millions of Americans based on current inflows.

Reason #3: A markedly expanded coverage universe. When Social Security started, it covered about half of the U.S. population. Entire swaths of workers were not promised benefits.

But today, nearly all workers are covered by the program. In the event of injury, they usually qualify for disability. In the event of their death, their spouses — and possibly their children — receive benefits.

Plus, as one reader pointed out on my blog a few months ago:

“Please go to the federal budget for 2008, look at the social security section, and see for yourself that SS going broke has less to do with seniors collecting benefits, and more to do with people UNDER retirement benefit age collecting money each month.

“Examples of programs include; payments to unwed mothers, WIC program, disability benefits to anyone at any age for most any injury, funding for drug treatment centers, tuition dollars for re-training workers, the list goes on and on. Don’t misunderstand, these are great programs, but they don’t belong under SS.”

His point is well taken. There’s no question that many of Social Security’s expanded responsibilities help Americans who are down on their luck. But this broader coverage also comes with a huge price tag and adds to an already struggling system.

Reason #4: Skewed cost-of-living adjustments. Since 1950, Social Security has adjusted recipients’ checks for inflation. The current method, adopted in 1972, uses the change in Consumer Price Index (CPI) from July through September vs. the same period a year earlier.

Let’s ignore the fact that it doesn’t compare a complete year, which is a flaw in and of itself as far as I’m concerned.

Instead, let’s focus on the fact that the CPI itself is an imperfect indicator of the inflation that you and I feel in our daily lives. FULL STORY

Dingbats for Fair tax, still do not get it.


Fair tax says Direct taxes (income taxes poll taxes, head taxes)....

I say what a bunch of ignorants. The income tax is not a direct tax. It is an excise tax and there are over 30 court cases that say such. To avoid the tax (which is lawful) simply do not become involved in the activity that generates the liability.. Just like the fair tax, if you don't want to pay it, do not get involved in the activity that generates the liability; in this case buying something.

Fair tax does not address the single issue that most Americans do not owe income tax on their pay that they get for working for a living (withholding tax). Even though currently the IRS and congress is WRONGLY imposing such a tax. After the fair tax gets passed, the act itself will legitimize the current level of THIEVERY by the government, from every man and woman in this country.

To that I say NO! FULL STORY

Tommy Cryer is an attorney in Shreveport, Louisiana. He defied the system. Not because he doesn't want to "pay his fair share," but because he knows what the IR Code says and decided to take a stand for the truth. Even at great expense to himself -- like so many others over the decades. Tommy was indicted and went to trial. He was acquitted in July of 2007 and went on a mission. Truth Attack was born and the results have been nothing short of amazing.

While Tommy was acquitted, other fine Americans like Sherry Jackson, are rotting in federal prisons. Not because this dear lady broke the law, but because the federal government has become lawless. Ignorant and/or cowardly juries continue to convict. Enough is enough. We cannot end the income tax one prison sentence at a time. FULL STORY

Bernanke gone berserk! Bank reserves explode!

by Martin D. Weiss, Ph.D. 10-19-09
Martin here with the most shocking new numbers I’ve seen in my lifetime.

My conclusion: Fed Chairman Bernanke has dumped so much funny money into the U.S. banking system and has done so little to manage how that money is used, the fate of our entire economy has now been cast under a dark shadow of doubt.

This is not conjecture or exaggeration.

Nor are the underlying facts subject to debate.

They are blatant, unambiguous, and fully supported by the Fed’s own data …

For example, the theory is that if the Fed merely arranges for the U.S. Treasury Department to borrow back most of the excess bank reserves, the Fed could keep the money out of the banks’ hands, prevent them from multiplying it with big lending, and ward off the ultimate inflationary consequences.

But, as pointed out by, the reality is that the Treasury is absorbing only a small fraction of the banks’ bloated reserve balances (green area in chart).

The bulk of those reserves (green area) are readily available to start multiplying through lending — and to set off an uncontrollable vicious cycle of too much money chasing too few goods.

The Consequences

This overabundance of high-powered money flooding into the nation’s banking system and money supply can have only one consequence: To cheapen the value of each dollar you own.

Yes, Mr. Bernanke has temporarily tamped down the Wall Street debt crisis. And yes, he has managed to replace fear with greed … convert the flight to safety into the lust for risk … and transform falling markets into rising markets.

An Insult to Our Republic

Rep. Jack Murtha presides, ignores reality to push through his preferences without a vote.

Democrats Martial Law in U.S. House of Representatives

A resolution of rebuke was put forward by Republicans after Congressman Murtha used his now famous strong arm tactics while serving as Acting Speaker of the House, in violation of House standards and practices.

House Democrat Leader Hoyer moved to "table" or prevent a vote and debate on the resolution from taking place. But in doing so, he added the words "enough is enough".

Hoyer's statement "enough is enough" was in itself a form of debate and triggered House Rules requiring that one hour be set aside for debate.

Later, House Records were scrubbed of Hoyer's comment making Boehner's inquiry appear without foundation.

What Nancy Pelosi promised would be "the most open ethical congress in history" is quickly turning into one of the meanest, most dishonest bunch of flim flammers of all time.

Remember Remember the 5th of November - No TV FOR V

Fair tax is for dingbats.

The so called Fair tax, is proof of the sheer ignorance the people of this country have about our nations tax laws.

We have 2 problems. Runaway growth and spending by our government, and massive ignorance by the population concerning our nations financial laws.

I have to comment about the fair tax, that is being talked about for both Federal and State levels.

First on the federal level. Fair tax people want to convince others that our current system cannot be fixed - it can, but only if we the people hold the US congress to doing so. While it may not be the best system, it is the best that we have. Minor changes can be made that will achieve the desired results. However, those results will mean the US Congress will have to admit that it has a limited amount of access to our funds, and that our funds are also limited, thus the US congress cannot take what ever it wants, when it wants.

The Fair tax wants to convince people that the current system would be better served with a national retail sales tax, collected at the retail level. And that this system would cause people who apparently now are not paying taxes, to paying their fair share of taxes. They claim that the fair tax will touch everyone equally. And that their system will eliminate the IRS.

They could not be more wrong. FULL STORY


YOU MUST SEE THIS ... My friend Liz sent me this link. It's amazing! As I understand it, this incredible machine was built as a collaborative effort between the Robert M. Trammell Music Conservatory and the Sharon Wick School of Engineering at the University of Iowa. Amazingly, 97% of the machine's components came from John Deere Industries and Irrigation Equipment of Bancroft, Iowa...Yes, farm equipment. It took the team a combined 13,029 hours of set-up, alignment, calibration, and tuning before filming this video. As you can see, it was WELL worth the effort. It's now on display in the Matthew Gerhard Alumni Hall at the University and it's already slated to be donated to the Smithsonian Institute.

NOTICE: Music From Tractor Parts-

Summary of the eRumor:
The email comes with a video file attachment. It says that it is a performance of music from a mechanical device that was built by the Robert M. Trammell Music Conservatory and the Sharon Wick School of Engineering at the University of Iowa and 97 percent of it is components from farm equipment from John Deere and the Irrigation Equipment company from Bancroft Iowa. It says it took the team a combined 13,029 hours to build, align, calibrate, and tune the instrument. The eRumor also claims that the device is on display at the Matthew Gerhard Alumni Hall at the University of Iowa.
The Truth:
The eRumor is a hoax.

The music is actually an acclaimed example of what is called "animated music" and is titled Pipe Dream. It is from and is included on a DVD of other animated music productions.

The University of Iowa says there is neither a "Robert M. Trammell Music Conservatory" nor a "Sharon Wick School of Engineering" on the campus. Those are fictional institutions.

In Perpetuum Rights - What are they?

The idea of the next step for a peaceful return to the Constitution and holding our servant government accountable came to me when I hear Glenn Beck say one night, "Don't let anything go into Washington, DC and don't let anything come out of Washington, DC.

OK Glenn, how do we do that? We have followed the Founders footsteps verbatim. We did the Remonstrance, We formally petitioned for Redress, They refused to answer, but wait.

I turned to the original organic Constitution Of Michigan 1835 and found the answer in the Bill of Rights. So I presented this idea to Thurston Bell who then research and to date has come up with Recall Petitions for Michigan, California, and Pennsylvania. See In Perpetuum Rights Blog.

Political power.

First. All political power is inherent in the people.

Right of the people.

2. Government is instituted for the protection, security, and benefit of the people; and they have the right at all times to alter or reform the same, and to abolish one form of government and establish another, whenever the public good requires it.

No exclusive privileges.

3. No man or set of men are entitled to exclusive or separate privileges.

Right to assemble and petition.

20. The people shall have the right freely to assemble together, to consult for the common good, to instruct their representatives, and to petition the legislature for redress of grievances.

Acts void.

21. All acts of the legislature contrary to this or any other article of this Constitution shall be void.

Thats when it became clear to me that because of the 17th Amendment, we the people in each state can REFORM our government by recalling the TWO senators of each state for their constitutional violations.

The only thing that stops us is our own inability to understand that:

"As in our intercourse with our fellow-men certain principles of morality are assumed to exist, without which society would be impossible, so certain inherent rights lie at the foundation of all action, and upon a recognition of them alone can free institutions be maintained. These inherent rights have never been more happily expressed than in the Declaration of Independence, that new evangel of liberty to the people: 'We hold these truths to be self-evident' — that is so plain that their truth is recognized upon their mere statement — 'that all men are endowed' — not by edicts of Emperors, or decrees of Parliament, or acts of Congress, but 'by their Creator with certain inalienable rights' — that is, rights which cannot be bartered away, or given away, or taken away except in punishment of crime — 'and that among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness, and to secure these' — not grant them but secure them — 'governments are instituted among men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed.'
Butchers' Union Co. v. Crescent City Co., 111 U.S. 746, 756, 4 S.Ct. 652 (1884) J. Fields

“The very purpose of a Bill of Rights was to withdraw certain subjects from the vicissitudes of political controversy, to place them beyond the reach of majorities and officials and to establish them as legal principles to be applied by the courts. One's right to life, liberty, and property, to free speech, a free press, freedom of worship and assembly, and other fundamental rights may not be submitted to vote; they depend on the outcome of no elections. " (emphasis added)
West Virginia Board of Education v. Barnette,
319 U.S. 624, 638 (1943)(Opinion, J. Jackson)

The only effective way to take these rights away is to convince us that they no longer exist. Read In Perpetuum Rights Blog.
