Muskegon County labor union contracts-the fix is DONE!


I've got to take a breath here.

The fix is in.

The plan to have all county union contracts come due on the same day is already finalized.

County administrator Hammersley assured me, personally, that all the county union contracts were to be posted on the county website.

That was over three months ago.

But the county's link has only four contracts that are currently in place.

The other 6 contracts are expired or perhaps continuing until some date that us poor taxpayers don't understand.

But the plan to have EVERY union contract expire...and be reset on the same day is the union's holy grail!

The scheme is to have all union contracts due and re-approved on Sept. 30 2011.

Imagine the luxury of only having to explain and atone for 80% of the county budget once every 4 or 6 years.

Rather than have contracts be examined by citizens (those who PAY for the contracts!) every 6 months or so.

And more to come on this disaster that awaits our county's citizens and businesses!

Here's a message from a friend who lives in Flint, Michigan.

I have this great Idea!

Anybody interested in what unions can do when they get way too much control, can come to FLINT MI we can give you a tour of the Buick plant, FisherBody & AC Spark plug plants.

To top off your tour we can give you a ride around the HOOD. If you don't know what that is,your in for a treat we recomend you bring a GUN!!! You will be traveling in the MURDER CAPITAL of the USA.

If you see kids that look like they are the age where they should be in school , do not concern youself, those are just part of the 73% drop outs you will see during your tour.

You will also be seeing lots of small children, again do not concern yourself they all have brothers and sisters from unknowen fathers who will grow up to also drop out of school and have kids of there own .

Unions might have there place but when they run Business out of town and run goverments into BILLIONS of dollors of over spending somebody has to say ENOUGH ALREADY !!!

Ron Paul 2012 Money Bomb

Are you one of those people who still believe that we are a nation of LAWS, a REPUBLIC, and not a DEMOCRATIC whim of special interest?

Are you one of those people who believes that the CONSTITUTION is the RULE OF LAW, and our politicians are bound by their OATH to abide within the confines of said CONSTITUTION?

Are you one of those people looking for someone with a solid track record of voting within the CONSTITUTION?

Today is the RON PAUL MONEY BOMB. $5, $10, what ever you can afford. 4 years ago, a REVOLUTION was born, TODAY IT CONTINUES.

Ron Paul’s Statement on Winning CPAC Straw Poll

LAKE JACKSON, TEXAS – After receiving news that he won the 2011 Presidential Preference Straw Poll at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC), Congressman Ron Paul issued the following statement:

“I am honored by the outpouring of support that I received in winning the CPAC Straw Poll. Events like this energize me and give me tremendous incentive to keep up the fight for Liberty and our Constitution.

“This win is bigger then just me, it is about the message of Liberty that resonates with so many across the country. Young people in particular, who participated so strongly in this poll, understand that restoring our Freedom is the key to our future prosperity. I remain optimistic that our message will spread and help the next generation recapture the wonderful traditions that made America the greatest nation in human history.”

CPAC is widely considered the largest and most important gathering of Conservatives in the country. Dr. Paul captured 30 percent of the vote, beating the second place finisher by 7 points. No one else in the field exceeded 6 percent.

Mike Connell want's Michigan to give Fair Tax a fair shot for a change.

So who is Mike Connell??? Well, Mike moved his family to in 1988 when Mike became executive editor of the Times Herald in Port Huron. Carol leads the special education program at a Port Huron area high school. They have three sons. Ian is a teacher in New Haven, Michigan; Patrick is a teacher and coach in Port Huron; and Matthew is an Army officer.

Mike took early retirement in 2008, but he continues to write a Sunday front-page column for the Times Herald. He also is a novelist and poet.

Mike is a Fair Taxer Supporter. But then, I guess Mike Connell isn't of the shrinking middle class here in Michigan. My gut feeling is that Mike Connell is already set up with his own Survival program and could care less about Michigan or it's people since he isn't REALLY one of us.

Here in Michigan, we don't tax food for a reason Mike, or Dr. visit, Medication or (Labor) services for a reason. But I guess you don't get that never having been in business yourself.

Anyone who has read the Michigan Fair Tax proposal knows that you are promoting a sales tax on LABOR, which is unconstitutional.

You are promoting that a sales tax be collected on all Dr. visits, EXCEPT the portion your insurance carrier pays, IF your lucky enough to have a job where your employer offers health care. Hmmmmm, will we also pay a sales tax on the portion of that health care policy that our employer doesn't cover MIKE?

What your article doesn't cover Mike Connell, is the fact that we need to stop spending. We need to reduce the size of government.

We need a state legislative body who is willing to stop trying to tax us to death and will quit living off Federal Subsidies.

I look at your picture Mike and think, this looks like a nice guy. Well, so much for looks Mike. Perhaps you should read the objections in the on going Anti-Fair-Tax Debate in the right column here. But I doubt it will open your eyes, after all, you are a journalist with your marching orders.

Ron Paul's CPAC 2011 Speech

Rich Take From Poor as U.S. Subsidy Law Funds Luxury Hotels

For at least 3 decades that I know of, people have been battling in court trying to prove that the average wage earner isn't a person required to file and pay Income Taxs. Very few have been successful in convincing a JURY not to convict them of the charge "Willful Failure To File"

In fact, the last time anyone did win was Back in 2007 where the IRS failed to prove a constitutional foundation.

Talk to a school teacher, city or state employee, or federal employee and they all tell us that we must pay our fair share. Ok, let's see where some of that FAIR SHARE is going, then it's up to you to determine if it's REALLY FAIR or not. Remember, we put people in prison who refuse to "Voluntarily" pay.

$116 Million to renovate the Blackstone Hotel in downtown Chicago

The landmark Blackstone Hotel in downtown Chicago, which has hosted 12 U.S. presidents, opened in 2008 after a two-year, $116 million renovation. Inside the Beaux Arts structure, built in 1910, buffed marble staircases greet guests spending up to $699 a night for rooms with views of Lake Michigan.

What’s surprising isn’t the opulent makeover: It’s how the project was financed. The work was subsidized by a federal development program intended to help poor communities.

The biggest beneficiary of taxpayer help for the Blackstone revamp was Prudential Financial Inc., the second-largest U.S. life insurer. The company got $15.6 million in tax credits from the U.S. Department of the Treasury for helping to fund the project, according to Chicago city records, Bloomberg Markets magazine reports in its March issue.

JPMorgan Chase & Co., the second-largest U.S. bank by assets, also took in money by serving as a lender and the monitor of Blackstone construction financing, city records show.

Since 2003, some of the world’s biggest financial companies, including Goldman Sachs Group Inc., U.S. Bancorp, JPMorgan Chase and Prudential, have taken advantage of a federal subsidy that will cost taxpayers $10.1 billion -- and most of the public has never heard of it.

“This underscores the need to ensure the program is operating as efficiently as possible at a time when the government is under severe pressure to address the growing federal budget deficit,” says Michael Brostek, GAO’s tax issues director.

The Blackstone adjoins Chicago’s cultural hub, one of the most vibrant in the nation, and is miles from the city’s neediest neighborhoods. Prudential invested $9.3 million and made $30.4 million in loans, according to Chicago records.

Under New Markets rules, firms get a credit of 39 cents on the dollar, paid over seven years, for cash or loans they put in. For its contribution, Prudential collected $15.6 million in credits, according to a July 2008 JPMorgan project oversight report filed with Chicago. FULL STORY

Jurors Have The Highest POWER In The Country!!!

The past two weeks I have been bombarded with a string of emails attacking some well known Attorney's on the lack of jurisdiction of the courts. Needless to say, these people are all over the place with what they believe to be true, citing court cases that have nothing to do with what the issue they are trying to apply them to, and expressing anger at all the courts as well as all attorney's for their own lack of due diligence.


When you click on the first link you will see all the chapters listed. You have a choice of WordPerfect, MS-Word or PDF files to download.

You want Chapter 1.00 - General Principles ( I choose PDF )

One page (4) it states:

Committee Commentary 1.02
(current through December 1, 2009)

A panel of the Sixth Circuit quoted paragraph (4) of this instruction and stated that it
cured any confusing statements made by the district court during voir dire. United States v.
Okeezie, 1993 WL 20997 at 4, 1993 U.S. App. LEXIS 1968 at 4 (6th Cir. 1993) (unpublished).

The jurors have two main duties. First, they must determine from the evidence what the
facts are. Second, they must take the law stated in the court's instructions, apply it to the facts
and decide whether the facts prove the charge beyond a reasonable doubt. See Sparf v. United
States, 156 U.S. 51, 102-07 (1895); Starr v. United States, 153 U.S. 614, 625 (1894).

The jurors have the POWER to ignore the court's instructions and bring in a not guilty
verdict contrary to the law and the facts. Horning v. District of Columbia, 254 U.S. 135, 138

 But they should not be told by the court that they have this power. United States v.
Krzyske, 836 F.2d 1013, 1021 (6th Cir. 1988); United States v. Avery, 717 F.2d 1020, 1027 (6th
Cir. 1983); United States v. Burkhart, 501 F.2d 993, 996-97 (6th Cir. 1974).

 They should instead be told that it is their duty to accept and apply the law as given to them by the court. United States v. Avery, supra at 1027.

So the question is, if the Jury has the POWER, the POWER to over rule the judges instructions, the POWER to over rule the legislators, WHY AREN'T THEY USING IT???

Oh wait, I know.

1. Because the defendants aren't demanding a trial by jury.
2. Because the parents aren't demanding this be included in their child's civic education.
3. Because we have a dumb down society that doesn't have a clue what their state or federal Constitution or Bill of Rights says and they really don't care either.


"By the way, Ron Paul can not get elected." So says Donald Trump.

Donald Trump announced that he may be considering a run for the Republican presidential nomination. He was a surprise speaker at the annual conservative event saying that America had become a laughingstock to the world and was lacking in leadership. He later received jeers from the audience for mocking Congressman Ron Paul’s chances to win the presidency.

Egyptian discord a prologue, says futurist

By Jeremiah Horrigan
Times Herald-Record
Published: 2:00 AM - 02/10/11

KINGSTON — Maybe you thought that the uprising in Cairo's Tahrir Square was winding down, that the crowds had been pacified and that Egypt had begun its steady march to democracy.

Don't kid yourself, says futurist Gerald Celente. Uprisings like Egypt's are a mere prelude to a series of civil wars over economic unrest in Europe, he says. They in turn will lead to regional wars that will culminate in what Celente calls the first "Great War" of the 21st century.

As these economic conflicts flare up, politicians will call for an "orderly transition of power," but, as in Egypt, such "windbaggery" won't win the day, Celente says.

"There is no such thing," he says, "as a clean and simple revolution." FULL STORY

Ron Paul's Subcommittee Hearing 2/9/11: Can Monetary Policy Really Create Jobs?

QUESTION: If the Federal Reserve didn't see the Monetary Crises coming, will they see the Inflation in time to STOP printing Fed Fiat Dollars???

QUESTION: Should Michigan Citizens accept the proposed Michigan Fair Tax that would eliminate the Michigan Corporate Income Tax as well as Business Property Tax and EXPAND the Michigan Sales Tax to include Tax on Food, Medical and Services ( Labor )???

My ANSWER: No! With the rising Inflation that we are facing, it would be IMMORAL to place a tax on the most basic needs of every individual.

Transcript of Interview with Jim Rogers: Why Inflation is Raging Worldwide And He Shorted US Treasury Bonds

Chris: So inflation is really out of the bag. Then why is it that the U.S. seems to be experiencing what they claim to be no inflation. What is going on there?

Jim: Well Chris, if you shop in the U.S., you know that there is inflation – whether it’s taxis or tolls or insurance or education or entertainment or food. I mean, the price of everything is going up. It’s only the U.S. Government that says prices aren’t going up. I guess CNBC says that too, but shop – I impore you. Go and try to buy something. Go see that there is inflation in the U.S. just as there is everywhere else. I mean, Chris, people in American pay the same for cotton or rubber or tin or oil as everybody else in the world. So when they say there is no inflation – I mean, I don’t know how there could be possibly no inflation because prices of nearly everything are going up.

Chris: Well, certainly if we look at a chart of commodities going back from about 2002, there was a little spike in ’08, which sort of rippled there, but otherwise you can draw a line with a ruler from 2002 to now. It’s almost ten years where we’ve been in almost double digit commodity inflation – it’s been a very impressive run there.

So one way to look at this then is the U.S. is exporting this inflation and expecting the rest of the world to shoulder that pain. Either the rest of the world accepts higher inflation, or they have to accept a stronger currency to fight it. Either of which is a form of past and current U.S. monetary and fiscal excesses. As a student of history, are their any parallels to tell us what happens next in this story?

Jim: What happens next is the rate of inflation continues to grow eventually; even the U.S. and U.K. will have to acknowledge it. You will see one more price increases make it through to the public. It will lead to higher interest rates. It will lead to a lower standard of living for all of us. Except the ones, of course, who have figured out what’s going on and can invest to protect themselves. But no, this is going to get worse. This has happened many, many times. There is nothing unusual about it. I’m not a very smart guy, I just looked it up. Your listeners can look it up too. Throughout history when it started happening, eventually politicians and economists started saying, “Oh well, don’t worry, it’s a one-shot thing. It’s just because of a bad harvest or bad this or a bad that and don’t worry, it won’t last." But of course, since they either don’t realize what’s going on or because they’re lying about what’s going on, it gets worse before anybody tries to do something to solve the problem. FULL STORY

FIJA Questions Florida Judge, Attorney General, and Governor Over Unlawful Order

On Thursday, 3 February 2011, FIJA sent on FIJA letterhead via United States Postal Service certified mail, the following questions to Florida Judge Blevin Perry, Jr., to Florida Governor Rick Scott, and to Attorney General Pam Bondi: Questions for Florida Chief Judge Belvin Perry, Jr., Governor Rick Scott, and Attorney General Pam Bondi (pdf)

The letter, in part, points out this contradiction:

On 31 January, 2011, Chief Judge Belvin Perry, Jr. has issued an “Administrative Order”, barring peaceful people from engaging in their lawful freedom of speech to peacefully distribute pamphlets, on public property, related to the laws, rights and authority of jurors.
On 8 February 2010, Florida Judge David B. Eddy issued a memorandum stating, “Based on principles of free speech, I believe that whoever is distributing the handouts (referencing FIJA literature) in question has a right to do so. Accordingly, I see no reason why the handouts must be excluded from the jury assembly room. I believe we may trust jurors to follow the law as instructed by the judge.”
A contradiction in the application of the law is evident. Americans seeking to lawfully exercise their lawful rights are subject to being arrested and denied their rights by Chief Judge Belvin Perry, Jr.’s order.
Because a contradiction of the law is evident, and a damage is threatened by the power of office of Chief Judge Belvin Perry, Jr. we respectfully insist that Chief Judge Belvin Perry, Jr. and the courts and government of Florida, under penalty of fraud and other laws, certify which involved law prevails, not contradicted by any superior law: Chief Judge Belvin Perry, Jr.’s Administrative Order; or the right of the People to freely express their views in regard to this matter.
