My Two Cents Worth On The Ten Commandments

My Two Cents Worth On The Ten Commandments

OK, I think I've read enough blogs on the Ten Commandments and the Alabama Supreme Court. I've considered both sides of the debate and it's time for me to blog on same.

I am neither an expert on constitutional matters nor very religious. Spiritual but not that religious. But I can't see what all the fuss is about, Allen. Just because there is a piece of rock with very good ideas (my opinion) carved in it which just so happen to be Christian based doesn't mean it is indicative of this or any court shoving the Christian faith down anyone's throat nor does it mean that any justice being applied therein is going to prejudiced. Nowhere on this rock will you find Christ(ian) nor, if you read it, will you be then commanded to bow before it in reverence.

What it does do - for me at least is remind me that this country and the "sacred" instrument guaranteeing our democratic republic - the U.S. Constitution - IS steeped in Christian belief and of the Christians who indeed settled here and gave their lives so that YOU and ME could live here as a "freeman" (per Ben Franklin).

Whether we 200+ years later like it or not, this country was founded on Christian beliefs and faith. Period. Personally, I think we need a kick in the spiritual pants in this country in a big way. There is very little moral fiber of any kind left it seems. Just suffer through the news for a night. And I don't quite understand the theory that we must now allow all other religions and beliefs equal space in this or any other court. How many other religions were represented in the founding of this country and the fight to secure it?

The First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution when read correctly prohibits Congress from passing any law establishing a [national] religion and establishes your right to freedom of religion. This rock in no way impairs that right in my view. The Tenth Amendment is clear that if it aint listed in the U.S. Constitution somewhere that the feds can be involved in a matter or function then it's left up to the states and the people. I'm not at all convinced that by a little act of usurpation, the feds haven't overstepped their bounds here and that "they" should refer back to the First and Tenth Amendments. I just fail to see how this carved rock is somehow undoing anyone's "religious" or other rights or freedoms. It is, however, displaying our heritage and tradition.

It seems to me that the people of Alabama should have the last say by way of a special election, impeachment of Judge Moore or whatever lawful way they choose to handle this matter. The rest of us in the other 49 states and D.C. should be staying out of the way - except that we can express our opinions about it. (Refer back to the First Amendment). Isn't the Constitution a marvelous thing! Unless a specific constitutional right is being denied someone here, the feds should stay out of it, the Alabamans should decide and the republican form of government we are all guaranteed can prevail. Don't like the outcome, don't live in Alabama I guess. God Bless Judge Moore for having certain big body parts to stand up for our American tradition and recognizing that tradition within the Constitution. Now as I see it, the Alabaman majority can act on it and the feds should go back to D.C. and stay there for a change.

Mailing to the IRS

Doug, how you send mail to the IRS is very important, I believe. I would never send anything to them without it going certified mail and getting a return receipt. That way, you have proof of delivery so they can't deny receiving whatever you've sent to them- which they've been known to do.

The Future of the U.S. Constitution
I have been following the stories coming out of Alabama closely. Both Gene Chapman's progress with the Tax Freedom Movement and the controversy with Chief Justice of the Alabama Supreme Court, Roy Moore's battle to preserve the display of the Ten Commandments statue.

How these two important issues turn out could very well tell all of us just how far socialist/communist movement has come in America. It could very well mean the preservation or the practical abolishment of the U.S. Constitution. Not one other justice on the Alabama Supreme Court is on Moore's team! NOT ONE!

It's interesting to me that Alabama is the first state of the fifty (alphabetically). Maybe this is the way we have to fight and win the war against federal tyranny - one state at a time starting at the top of the list. Justice Moore is adamant that as a state official elected by the people of Alabama he will keep his oath to uphold the U.S. Constitution and the Constitution of Alabama. God Bless Justice Roy Moore and Gene Chapman! I wish we had several hundred thousand more folks like them today! In due time we will.

Hey Doug

I think Gerald Klaas gives you some good advice! If time is too short to start a letter writing campaign, then take the opportunity to set up a Due Process Hearing. Get a copy of the IRS Code from Irwin Schiff or someone else and bring that along with a tape recorder and a witness or two to your hearing. If you haven't already, I would download Chris Hansen's book - "The Great IRS Hoax". And get busy reading about the code and his thoughts on what questions to ask the IRS during your hearing. This is a HUGE tool for all of us and he doesn't charge a dime! This guy is a smart and well read cookie.

Oh brother! This is just what we need!

Oh brother! This is just what we need!

I received this email today from Tom Schatz, President of Citizens

Against Government Waste.

Date sent: Thu, 21 Aug 2003 21:02:27 -0500

Subject: Tell Congress to allow private tax collection!

"Tom Schatz, President, The Council for Citizens Against Government Waste"

Organization: Citizens Against Government Waste

Dear James,

$75.7 billion! That's the amount of outstanding tax liabilities
that the Internal Revenue Service estimates is owed by more than 6.1
million individuals and businesses to the U.S. Treasury.

I urgently need you to click here
http://www.cagw.org/site/R?i=Cr87HV0hQwWxNQlxj6Xdtw.. today
to help CCAGW pass a commonsense reform that would help the IRS
collect these delinquent funds.

President Bush supports legislation that has been introduced in
the House, H.R.2896, known as the American Jobs Creation Act, that
would allow the IRS to use private debt collection companies to
collect delinquent taxes. In 1984, CCAGW's precursor organization,
the Grace Commission, recommended improving the collection of
delinquent taxes. Almost 20 years later, this concept still makes
sound fiscal sense.

The IRS Oversight Board, created to oversee the tax agency's
management, has testified before Congress on the poor customer
service record and overall failure of the IRS to enforce tax laws.
Even IRS Commissioner Mark Everson has acknowledged that the
IRS simply cannot track down every single tax dodger and supports
a program to use private debt collectors to go after unpaid taxes.

Authorizing the IRS to use private debt collection agencies would
increase the efficiency of the IRS. It is also a cost-effective
approach to recovering delinquent taxes since the private collection
firms would be paid out of the money they collect. Taxpayers' rights
and privacy can be protected by ensuring that private agencies that
contract with the IRS are limited to specific responsibilities and
allowed no enforcement powers. The agencies would operate under
IRS supervision and be bound by the same rules as the IRS regarding
taxpayer rights and confidentiality.

Please click here
http://www.cagw.org/site/R?i=yLY4b_-FWlOxNQlxj6Xdtw.. to
tell your U.S. Representative to support the private tax collection
provision of the American Jobs Creation Act today. Tell Congress to
be fair to taxpayers by helping the IRS go after tax evaders!


Tom Schatz


The Council for Citizens Against Government Waste

Can y'all say "terribly misinformed"? I think it is the responsibility of all of us to email Mr. Schatz and set him straight! I politely unloaded on him a little earlier and I feel better already!

A quote today from Dick Simkanin as displayed on Doug Kenline's blog. Well said! All we need now is an effective way to convey this thought to our elected officials and pray they will digest it and take it to heart.

"Character and integrity are the two things that make a man a man."

- Dick Simkanin

If you need an opinion on a complicated issue opined in 40 words or less ask Allen Hacker to write it for you! Here's Allen's views on the "Fair" tax issue.

Wednesday, August 20, 2003

Fair Tax? Can you sing "Oh Canada"?!

Fair Tax? Can you sing "Oh Canada!"?
I have to agree with Doug Kenline's view of the "Fair" tax. C'mon Doug, Allen, Candie (What a quartet!), let's sing! All together now "Oh Canada! Our home and native land! True patriot love in all thy sons command." C'mon everyone join in!

Oh sure, the "Fair" tax will clean up a totally fragmented tax system - at least for awhile, paperwork will be minimal at best, the IRS as we know it will be gone. But something really bugs me about this "New Deal" and I just have to ask: Have the supporters of this tax lost their minds? Have they been in another country or on another planet for awhile? Or have they just spent their entire adult life on a beach with their heads in the sand? Or are they just socialists or communists?

I have one huge problem with this tax and I see one pitfall to it. First, I don't want to let the DC bastards, the "Fed", the DOJ, DOTr and any criminal U.S. attorneys and assorted crooked judges off the hook THAT easy! They have attempted to pummel us into the dirt for decades now and many have suffered heavy losses financially, emotionally, spiritually and some even their lives. Now we want to give these slime balls a chance to say "Oops, we made a mistake, here is a softer easier way to rape you" ? I say no way! Let them squirm like we've had to do all these years. I know that sounds vindictive but it's time someone else feels our pain and who better to do it then those that have made us suffer in such an uconscienable way for so long. And don't forget to write their suffering into the congressional records and history books. Like Doug alludes to - will their be amnesty for those who fell victim to the criminal government?

The basic but deep pitfall for you "Fair" tax supporters is this. Let me type this - reeeaaal slowwwly in case you can't read very fast! Have you ever seen a local sales tax start out at say 3% and the next thing you know your favorite legislators have it up to 7%? Are any of you witness to property taxes that increase with the regularity of an avid Metamucil user? Have you heard of the latest ploy by the Capitol Hill gang called the Alternative Minimum Tax (AMT) which in about 10 years, if allowed to continue, is going to bilk millions more average Americans out even more billions each year?

Look even if it takes an act of God and a 2/3 majority of both houses to increase this "Fair" tax some day, I have full faith in our federal legislators. They will pull a fast one somehow on the vote totals, tell you about a vision that God sent all of them in full session simultaneously one day and your 23% tax is now 30%! Amen.

I believe we should abolish the IRS and the tax code in it's entirety. Let the money men and our dear six-figure DC boys figure out how and where to cut the government down to size. To it's rightful constitutional size! No more handouts to any American, any corporation or any other country! No taxes coming out of your pay check either. Unload the corporate taxes so that they can expand and hire more people. As for our "Fair" tax supporters - if they're feeling chipper one day and have a flush wallet, I'm sure donations of all sizes will be cheerfully accepted at all charities everywhere. Even at your city hall, state capitol and in Washington, D.C. Will that be cash, check or credit card?

God Bless Gene Chapman's Tax Freedom March - he truly gets it!

Today Must Be Worldwide Email Virus Day and a Joke

There seems to be a virus going around the email circuit - I think it may be going around the world today. My system has stop literally dozens of infected emails today mostly from names and addresses I've never seen. Maybe it's some folks trying to tamper with us in the tax freedom blogosphere? I don't know. But I did receive this email today safely. It contains a joke. It's slightly crude perhaps but makes a good point. Here it is:

A modern day cowboy has spent many days crossing the desert without water. His horse has already died of thirst. He's crawling through the sands, certain that he has breathed his last, when all of a sudden, he sees an object sticking out of the sand several yards ahead of him. He crawls to the object, pulls it out of the sand, and discovers what looks to be an old brief case. He opens it and out pops a genie. But this is no ordinary genie. She is wearing an Internal Revenue Service, ID badge and a dull gray dress. There's a calculator in her pocketbook. She has a pencil tucked behind one ear. "Well, cowboy," says the genie... "You know how it works. You have three wishes." "I'm not falling for this." Says the man. "I'm not going to trust an IRS auditor." "What do you have to lose? You've got no transportation, and it looks like you're a goner anyway!" replies the genie. The man thinks about this for a minute, and decides that the genie is right. "OK, I wish I were in a lush oasis with plenty of food and drink."


The cowboy finds himself in the most beautiful oasis he has ever seen. And he is surrounded with jugs of wine and platters of delicacies. "OK, cowpoke, what's your second wish." "My second wish is that I were rich beyond my wildest dreams."


The man finds himself surrounded by treasure chests filled with rare gold coins and precious gems. "OK, cowpuncher, you have just one more wish. Better make it a good one!" After thinking for a few minutes, the man says.. "I wish that no matter where I go, beautiful women will want and need me."


He is turned into a tampon.

The moral of the story: If the government offers you anything, there's going to be a string attached!

Doug Kenline is right about the "blackout". Since I started paying attention to what's being reported in the press here in Minnesota several years ago, I've experienced the same lack of openness and extremely slanted "news" coverage. The other day, upon hearing about the Vernie Kuglin win against the IRS, I immediately emailed the news editor for the Minneapolis Star Tribune about it, asked him politely if he would report this important case and gave him a link so he could read up on it. Need I say that not one drop of ink has ever been printed about it and never will be? But they did report about the misguided ex-cop here who was convicted of failure to file and tax evasion by the state of Minnesota a few days ago.

We CANNOT allow ourselves and the public at large to rely on the general press and the likes of ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN, FOX to tell us the truth or even tell us what IS happening. This is precisely why I believe we need to blog, build an email network to pass news and info, talk to anyone and everyone who will listen while we plant the seeds of freedom, study as much as we can about the tax systems, our throttled constitution, how government is supposed to work, the laws, etc. (knowledge is power!) and help those in the tax and freedom movement anyway we can, whenever we can.

Spreading the word far and wide in favor of the abolition of the current tax system and IRS, the return of our freedoms and government to EXACTLY as it is expressed in the U.S. Constitution and to the rights we are all guaranteed by same is so important and must be done for our children and grandchildren! That's my opinion and I'm sticking with it. Print that!

Doug! Please go down and pick up the damn letter! You have NO fight and NO chance if you don't know what the letter says and don't respond IN WRITING (certified, return receipt). And the sooner you answer the better your chances.

Yet another train wreck out west! This time it was the "Train to Tyranny" with Denver County Court Judge Robert L. Patterson, engineer, several uninformed deputies as conductors and Rick Stanley the lone passenger. If not for the fact that this judge and the deputies forgot about the contents of the oath they swore to upon entering their public servant position, this train wreck would never have happened.

Just read a great article posted by Rose Lear written by David Brownlow, contributing writer for NewsWithViews.Com . He sure sheds some light on the fight between the Alabama Supreme Court and the 11th district Court of Appeals over the 2-1/2 ton Ten Commandments statue. The "feds" just can't seem to let the states alone! And they don't seem to be able to read the U.S. Constitution as written either - as David Brownlow states. This country and our government was clearly founded on Christian principles. Why would anyone want to destroy or censor those values unless they held strong communistic values themselves?
For those who think we should listen to their every whine and involve the government in every facet of their life because they just can't seem to cope, and where the "big meanie" general populace is otherwise ignoring their empty diatribe, I say this: If you don't like the way something looks, what it says, the way it sounds - change the channel, turn it off, put the book down, look the other way, IGNORE IT! Just like the Ten Commandments statue in the Alabama Supreme Court, you are under NO obligation to read it or believe it - so don't! The First Amendment MUST STAND as written or the rest of the Bill of Rights doesn't matter!

To all who welcomed me to the blogosphere I say (just like the dairy cow to the farmer on a cold winter day), "Thanks for the warm hand"!

Doug Doug Doug Doug ..... No one cares if you drink and drive that's your business BUT if you do - PLEASE let some of us know in advance so we can "steer" you onto the path of some criminal U.S. attorneys, judges, politicians, etc.! You may want to get yourself a Hummer though! The list above is so big that your Trans Am is going to take one hell of a beating very quickly!

Wow! According to the latest news from Gene Chapman and Allen Hacker it sounds like the Tax Freedom Movement is really starting to grow! Let's hope it continues at an even greater pace!

By the way Doug you make $150 a week??!! Where can I get a job making that much??!! Things are pretty tight up here in Minne-so-cold!

Sunday, August 17, 2003

Well, I figure by now it's official! Not one word has been or will be printed about Vernie Kuglin in the Minneapolis or St. Paul newspapers. But just let them convict or thoroughly hassle someone like Irwin Schiff or Rick Stanley by fleecing them of their constitutional rights and watch all the ink they use up! Just goes to show you what we are up against. Bet they wouldn't (won't) run a full page ad for WTP either. We'll all continue on with the war against the power hungry, money hungry thugs and low life socialists/communists - who have chosen to try to take OUR republic away from us - one way or the other! And one day, we will win of that I'm sure! I believe David Goodyear, Allen Hacker, Doug Kenline, Dick Simkanin (and the rest of you good folks around our age - give or take) it will happen in our lifetime.

Geez, I'm not usually THIS angry! Maybe it's just the hour.

Wow, Candie what a day you and your mom had! You call the police to report a crime and they want to haul you in! (Thanks for playing!) Go figure.

Doug, thanks for all of your help with my blog set up! Soon I will be adding links to all of the good folks out there. Hope that's OK with you all.

Thanks Doug for the new format. I finally got it working. It still says there are errors on the page but it seems to work OK. I'll get to the links, etc. soon. Hope you had a relaxing time this weekend!
