  • I’ve just recently blogged about Insidious Government Encroachment which I believe would provide the basis on a useful discussion here.   I’d be interested and hearing the views and experiences of others from this group.

  • Is there anyone out there that can SHOW ME the LAW that says the IRS can interfere with the business of the State Department?  Is there anyone out there that show me where “Congress” acquired Legislative Jurisdiction to interfere with travel within a State?  Can anyone show me the Law that grants “Enforcement” jurisdiction to the IRS for any territory other than “Federal” Land?  Just because the bunch of outlaw-renegades that call themselves “Congress” puts a bunch of words on a piece of paper and calls it a “LAW” doesn’t mean that it is a True, Correct, and Certain string of words that actually is “enforceable”.  Yet almost every time Obama writes an “Executive Order” or “Congress” passes something they call a Law most people (including some that should know better) start claiming that you or I are on our way to prison because of some language in the “new” Law or Order.  So let me ask this: How many of you have studied “Federal Jurisdiction”, or Federal “Legislative” Jurisdiction?  How many have read the Constitution and know anything about Separation of Powers?

  • What are some of the differences between “Public” and “Private”.  If you are writing for the public or the private don’t you use the same (corrupt) Language.  Is there any difference between Public Law and Private Law if you use the same Language for the writing of both?  Is there a “different” Language for writing the Laws, Rules, and Contracts in either domain?

  • Mathematician have “standards” for math symbols, Computer Engineers have “standards” for logic symbols, Automotive Engineers “standards” for measuring symbols. Is the coming together and “agreeing” on a “standard” for a set of symbols for the communication of thinking and ideas, an Oppressive or Liberating concept?  Is there more benefit from the reduction of errors, mistakes and miscommunication by the adherence to a “standard” in a field of communication than the harm caused by any suppression of the creative process?
