Please take a moment to talk to someone about Missouri Prop C today

Below is the new law in it’s entirety.  I would really appreciate any comments or concerns about this.  I have read it many times and really like what it says.  It basically insures that we can work together to keep your medical records out of the reach of the government.

Why does the IRS (Internal Revenue Service) need to know my BMI (Basic Metabolic Index)(how fat I am)?

On August 3, 2010 Please vote YES on Missouri prop C, and when you talk to your friends and neighbors ask them to support us.

Also, let them know about me.  Many of them are being mistreated by the medical system for things I can quickly fix.  I will waive the initial exam fee of $40.00 for them in your honor.

Here is prop C:

Back to Missouri Health Care Freedom Amendment, Proposition C (2010)

Proposition C will appear on the August 3, 2010 statewide ballot in Missouri. If approved by voters the measure would repeal Section A. Section 375.1175, RSMo, and enact two new sections to be known as sections 1.330 and 375.1175. The new sections would read as follows:[1]
Text

1.330. 1. No law or rule shall compel, directly or indirectly, any person, employer, or health care provider to participate in any health care system.
2. A person or employer may pay directly for lawful health care services and shall not be required by law or rule to pay penalties or fines for paying directly for lawful health care services. A health care provider may accept direct payment for lawful health care services and shall not be required by law or rule to pay penalties or fines for accepting direct payment from a person or employer for lawful health care services.
3. Subject to reasonable and necessary rules that do not substantially limit a person’s options, the purchase or sale of health insurance in private health care systems shall not be prohibited by law or rule.
4. This section does not:
(1) Affect which health care services a health care provider or hospital is required to perform or provide;
(2) Affect which health care services are permitted by law;
(3) Prohibit care provided under workers’ compensation as provided under state law;
(4) Affect laws or regulations in effect as of January 1, 2010;
(5) Affect the terms or conditions of any health care system to the extent that those terms and conditions do not have the effect of punishing a person or employer for paying directly for lawful health care services or a health care provider or hospital for accepting direct payment from a person or employer for lawful health care services.
5. As used in this section, the following terms shall mean:
(1) “Compel”, any penalties or fines;
(2) “Direct payment or pay directly”, payment for lawful health care services without a public or private third party, not including an employer, paying for any portion of the service;
(3) “Health care system”, any public or private entity whose function or purpose is the management of, processing of, enrollment of individuals for or payment for, in full or in part, health care services or health care data or health care information for its participants;
(4) “Lawful health care services”, any health-related service or treatment to the extent that the service or treatment is permitted or not prohibited by law or regulation that may be provided by persons or businesses otherwise permitted to offer such services; and
(5) “Penalties or fines”, any civil or criminal penalty or fine, tax, salary or wage withholding or surcharge or any named fee with a similar effect established by law or rule by a government established, created or controlled agency that is used to punish or discourage the exercise of rights protected under this section.
375.1175. 1. The director may petition the court for an order directing him to liquidate a domestic insurer or an alien insurer domiciled in this state on the basis:
(1) Of any ground for an order of rehabilitation as specified in section 375.1165, whether or not there has been a prior order directing the rehabilitation of the insurer;
(2) That the insurer is insolvent;
(3) That the insurer is in such condition that the further transaction of business would be hazardous, financially or otherwise, to its policyholders, its creditors or the public;
(4) That the insurer is found to be in such condition after examination that it could not meet the requirements for incorporation and authorization specified in the law under which it was incorporated or is doing business; or
(5) That the insurer has ceased to transact the business of insurance for a period of one year.
2. Notwithstanding any other provision of this chapter, a domestic insurer organized as a stock insurance company may voluntarily dissolve and liquidate as a corporation under sections 351.462 to 351.482, provided that:
(1) The director, in his or her sole discretion, approves the articles of dissolution prior to filing such articles with the secretary of state. In determining whether to approve or disapprove the articles of dissolution, the director shall consider, among other factors, whether:
(a) The insurer’s annual financial statements filed with the director show no written insurance premiums for five years; and
(b) The insurer has demonstrated that all policyholder claims have been satisfied or have been transferred to another insurer in a transaction approved by the director; and
(c) An examination of the insurer pursuant to sections 374.202 to 374.207 has been completed within the last five years; and
(2) The domestic insurer files with the secretary of state a copy of the director’s approval, certified by the director, along with articles of dissolution as provided in section 351.462 or 351.468.

Joe Stack Was Not A Tea Party Member

News That Joe Stack Was Not A Tea Party Member Disappoints Obamanoids

Paul Joseph Watson
Prison Planet.com
Friday, February 19, 2010

Even before many of the details were confirmed surrounding yesterday’s tragic events in Austin, political operatives were callously exploiting the incident to advance their agenda in demonizing opponents of big government as terrorists who crash planes into buildings – unfortunately for them it has since emerged that Joe Stack was not a “fringe extremist” and he was not a member of any Tea Party organization.

Time Magazine instantly labeled Stack a domestic terrorist and openly implied links to the Tea Party by including a red link to an article about the Tea Party movement in the middle of their story about the Austin plane crash.

A Washington Post editorial compared Stack with Oklahoma City bomber Timothy McVeigh and claimed, “His alienation is similar to that we’re hearing from the extreme elements of the Tea Party movement.”

This is of course a ludicrous aspersion to make. Polls show that at least 66 per cent of the entire country are angry with the federal government – that doesn’t mean that 200 million Americans are going to slam planes into buildings or indeed do anything violent. Tea Party protests have been noted for their peaceable nature – not so much of a window has been broken.

New York Magazine jumped on the bandwagon, writing that Stack’s rhetoric “could have been taken directly from a handwritten sign at a tea party rally,” again overwhelmingly implying that anti-tax groups and small government advocates should be silenced because they are dangerous extremists.

But by far the most belligerent reaction came from the Obamanoid blog websites, places like the Daily Kos which carried a post entitled, “Teabagger terrorist attack on IRS building.”

“After months of threats on the United States government, and government institutions, the Anti-Government forces known as the teabaggers have struck with their first 911 (sic) inspired terrorist attack,” read the post.

Of course, blaming random acts of violence on the liberty movement has become par for the course for those who wish to crush the free speech of their political adversaries. The University of Alabama-Huntsville murders were also blamed on the Tea Party movement until it turned out that the killer was an Obama-worshipper.

Unfortunately for those who like to exploit tragedies to further their own anti-free speech talking points, it turns out that Stack was not a “teabagger,” he was not a “terrorist,” and he was no Timothy McVeigh, he was a guy pushed to the edge, a sad figure in the mould of Michael Douglas’ character in the movie Falling Down.

Austin Tea Party director Greg Holloway told Newsmax that Stack was not a member of the Austin Tea Party.

“His name does not appear on any of their contact lists, Holloway says. He does not know of any tea party leader who ever met him,” writes David A. Patten.

Asked his reaction to media reports linking the tea party movement to the tragedy, Holloway told Newsmax, “I think it’s just the whole notion of a few people in politics, and I’ll include some of the media, that everything is about political process rather than about people. Here you’ve got a terrible tragedy involving so many people, and the first thought is: ‘How do I use this to forward my own agenda and to try to attack someone else’s?’

National tea party leader Everett Wilkinson also poured cold water on any links to Tea Party groups. “As far as I know, Joseph Andrew Stack was not a member of the tea party movement,” he said. “The movement is not involved in protesting the IRS, but rather government spending. Our best wishes go out to the families and people involved.”

In addition, despite efforts to portray Stack as a political extremist, friends told CBS News that Stack “talked politics like everyone but didn’t show any obsession.”

People who knew Stack said he was an easy going guy, a view backed by Infowars producer Rob Dew, who knew Stack from the Austin music scene and said he was a reserved, soft-spoken, well-dressed man. Dew expressed his shock that Stack could have been capable of flying a plane into a building.

The picture that emerges from all this is not of a violent terrorist hell-bent on destruction to further his paranoid political agenda, as many in the media have attempted to portray, but a man driven to the edge of sanity as a result of his personal disputes with the IRS.

That didn’t stop controlled shill Glenn Beck comparing Stack to Osama Bin Laden and fitting him in to his fairytale delusion about terrorists being within Obama’s inner circle ready to kill the President. Beck even threw the people he claims to represent – Tea Party members – under the bus by saying Stack could be a “radical constitutionalist,” which is how a lot of Tea Party members would describe themselves.

To characterize yesterday’s tragedy as a deadly portend of the “domestic terror” waiting to be unleashed on U.S. cities by disgruntled Americans is not only completely irresponsible, it’s a revelatory insight into how desperate the establishment is – both fake left and right – to neutralize growing peaceful political opposition to the big government agenda across the country.

Great News from the Fairtax movement!

Dear Fred, Michael Reagan

I have some very, very exciting news to share with you.

Michael Reagan, the eldest son of former President Ronald Reagan, has just agreed to act as the Honorary Chairman of the FairTax National Victory Campaign!

I wanted to tell you first.

Mike believes, and we agree, that if the FairTax had existed during his father’s time, President Reagan would have been a strong proponent.

It’s not a hard conclusion to reach given that his father said this: “Our federal tax system is, in short, utterly impossible, utterly unjust and completely counterproductive, it reeks with injustice and is fundamentally un-American… it has earned a rebellion and it’s time we rebelled…”

Mike has now agreed to help us get the second American tax revolt moving into high gear. That means a lot of Congressional communications, media work, radio, telephone recordings and television. It means a broader base of supporters behind the beloved legacy of Ronald Reagan, one of our greatest Presidents.

We have needed a strong public “face” and voice for the FairTax and it is hard to imagine a better champion for our needed cause.

I’ve written you before that this will become the “Year of the FairTax” and this is a big step forward toward that goal.

Please help me welcome the newest leader to our work and a fine person.

I’ll have more news about our campaign progress soon and other “inside” details of the work.

Thanks for everything you do and for your steady support. You are the heart of our campaign.

Ken

This must spread across the nation this week! Thank you…

July 12 is the 100 year anniversary of the 16th amendment, that’s long enough

As an American, I am so proud of you for your role in organizing, leading, and
focusing other Americans on the all-too-real problems we, as a nation, face.

Tomorrow, July 12th, is the 100th anniversary of the Congressional resolution that
proposed the Income Tax (16th) Amendment.

A year later, the world's bankers met on Jekyll Island, Georgia to plan the Federal
Reserve Bank.

 It took three more years before an out-going Secretary of State proclaimed, some
say illegally, that the Income Tax Amendment had been ratified by the States.

 Within months, the Congress passed the Federal Reserve Act and abdicated its power
to coin money.

 The Income Tax Amendment and the Federal Reserve Act are closely intertwined and,
to this day, serve powerful interests to strangle the liberty of the people.

 With so much renewed interest in the Constitution and the basic unalienable rights
of the people, we believe that the time is right to end this scourge that has
increasingly suppressed our liberties for nearly one hundred years.

 Repeal Income Tax is executing a four-year plan to repeal the income tax. It is our
only issue, but it touches on so many other issues -- Cap and Trade, Health Care,
Bailouts, Stimulus, all depend on the ability of Congress to manipulate the people
through the income tax.

 I ask you not only to help us spread awareness of these historical facts, but of
our movement -- the July 12th Movement -- to repeal the income tax.

 Our goal is not a theory. It's not even a new idea. The people forced the repeal of
Prohibition when they got angry enough. We are following that same path.

 Perhaps nowhere else is our loss of liberty more profound than in the moral
authority of our churches and synagogues which operate under the tyranny of the
Internal Revenue Code. The decline of religious freedoms in the public square
tracks closely with the rise of the power of the Internal Revenue Service to
interfere with the traditional activism that sprang from America's churches. The
traditional freedom from taxation that churches enjoyed since our founding has been
replaced with a privilege that is only granted in exchange for their silence.

 So, tomorrow, and on every day of worship from now until the Income Tax is
repealed, we ask that you make a bold and poignant statement.

 Encourage your religious leaders to observe one minute of silent prayer or
reflection during regular religious services to underscore the loss of religious
freedom and our unalienable rights. As the movement grows, the silence will surely
become deafening.

 Please encourage all your fellow activists, family, and friends to join us in this
crusade and sign the Declaration to Repeal the Income Tax.

 http://www.repealincometax.com/DOM/?T=216000500-2016

 Why a Declaration and not a Petition? Why didn't our Founders sign a Petition to
King George? Because the people are not the servants of their government. Because
the power to govern lies with the people, not with government.

 It will only be through the power of numbers in every village and town and city
around the country that we will achieve this goal.

 God Bless America,

 John Hanson

“Commercial Me” operating as agent to “Natural Me”

Please read this carefully, and send it on to your accountant and tax attorney. I would really like to gather some opinions on this issue.

“In commercial law income generally refers to net-profit: what remains of revenue after expenses have been subtracted”

As the “Natural Me” I start each day with a gift from god of a body and 24 hours of time.
I get to exercise my free will and spend these 24 hours “in the persuit of Happiness” however I choose, right?

To me, each moment of time in my lifespan is VERY precious. After all, once spent you can never get it back.
If I spend my time studying, the knowledge I aquire is mine for as long as I can remember it, right?
If I spend my time training, the skills I aquire are mine for as long as I can maintain them, right?

I understand that because I was born in modern America a commercial entity [Social Security Number (SSN)] was created and assigned as manager of my commercial affairs, operating without my knowledge (until 2009) but assuming my authority. I will now begin to refer to this entity as “Commercial Me”.

“Commercial Me”‘ operates as an agent and representative for “Natural Me” during any and all commercial negotiations.

“Natural Me”‘s time on earth is priceless and totally uncalculable in material equivalence.

However, within a free market society a standard cost can be reached by finding the going price for similarly trained natural persons. In my case, a Chiropractor, similar to a lawyer, “Natural Me”‘s time trades for about $300.00 per hour.

So “Commercial Me” starts all negotiations with a cost of $300.00 per hour to hire out “Natural Me”.

“Commercial Me” governed under UCC laws must file an “income Tax” form where “income” is defined as gross revenue minus costs incurred.

So “Commercial Me”‘s income would only be that amount of revenue is excess of $300.00 per hour cost to hire the God given “natural time” controlled by “Natural Me”.

“Natural Me” is answerable only to God and cannot be compelled to answer to any person or group of persons (government) without due process of the law.

I look forward to all replies!!

WHAT SHOULD WE DO TO SAVE THE AMERICAN ECONOMY?

by

Darrell L. Castle

Is the current tactic being employed to save the American financial system, the bailout, working? The answer to that question depends on your definition of the word “working”. If by “working” you mean the transferring of the nation’s wealth from working Americans to the bankers; the exponential accumulation of debt that must be repaid with interest by future generations; the destruction of the value of the dollar and with that destruction the lowering of the standard of living of working and retired Americans, creating the conditions that make martial law inevitable and with that declaration of martial law a world currency and world central bank; the nationalization of the American financial system; the ensconcing in positions of power, privilege, and dominance over the system of the very people who caused the crises in the first place, it has worked in spectacular fashion.

If you define “working” as ending the credit crises and freeing credit for business to put people back to work; allowing stable and profitable banks to emerge and lead the system back to stability; the avoidance of taxpayer money being used to pay huge bonuses and salaries to executives who have led their companies to failure; the avoidance of taxpayer money being used by banks to acquire stable, profitable companies including those not in the financial industry; avoidance of economic depression and with it the conditions of civil unrest and chaos, then it has been an abject failure.

The bailout and the coming economic stimulus follow what Keynesian economic theory dictates that we do. Keynesians believe that recessions are caused by a drop in aggregate demand. The Keynesian answer then is to increase demand by lowering interest rates. When interest rates are lowered to zero, which they now have been, without a corresponding increase in demand, it is because we are not squandering our money fast enough and thus the government must step in with a “stimulus” and squander it for us. This theory and tactic has worked in the past but will it work now? Not only will this tactic not work, it can’t work because for the first time in history debt, both public and private, has reached exponential growth. A problem caused by too much debt and credit that is too loose cannot be fixed by piling on more debt and more loose credit. More importantly, it can’t work because the underlying productive economy has been destroyed. Our manufacturing has been taken off shore to China, and Mexico. Our information technology has been taken off shore to India. Our financial system is obviously bankrupt.

Is there anything that can be done then to save this economy? Yes, there are many things that we could do which collectively would bring economic recovery very quickly.

  1. End The FED. Monetary reform and economic recovery are not possible unless Congress is able to recover its Constitutional authority over our monetary system. The growth of debt must be stopped and reversed, and the debt based system of monetary creation through interest bearing bank credit must be reversed if we are to recover. The Federal Reserve Act of 1913 should be rescinded and the FED banks liquidated and their assets turned over to the US treasury. It would be acceptable for them to continue under a different name as independent clearinghouse banks. Once Congress regains its Constitutional authority over money, it could issue money based on the full faith and credit of the United States or said another way, based on the labor and productive capacity of the American people. This money and credit would keep the economy functioning and prevent depression while we transitioned from our present debt based system to the gold standard. Some type of income restitution should be considered to replace money stolen from the American people through the FED’s 95 years of fraud and theft. It could be called a negative income tax or income restitution, or simply a people’s dividend. This people’s dividend could be paid from Congress directly to the American people on a monthly basis for a temporary period of two years. The payments, which would assist with the government’s transition to a gold standard would replace much of our current welfare system and would go equally to all citizens who are eighteen years of age or older and who are not in prison, on parole or on probation. The two year time period would give Congress plenty of time for the transition as well as time to evaluate the dividend’s effectiveness.

  1. Withdraw From Both Wars Immediately. Our nation has never been able to pay for these wars except through massive debt or massive inflation. Immediate withdrawal would save at least a trillion dollars.

  1. Secure Our Borders. Securing our borders would relieve pressure on the social systems of state and local governments which are now asking for bailouts of their own. The Federal Government should perform its constitutionally mandated duty under Article 4, Section 4 and protect the states from invasion. All immigration, even legal immigration, should be stopped until our borders are secure and our social systems and economy are under control. Immigration laws should be enforced within the United States. This would save several hundred billion dollars per year.

  1. Repeal All So Called Free Trade Agreements Such As NAFTA, WTO, and GATT. These agreements serve the interests of international mega corporations and foreign governments at the expense of the American people by encouraging manufacturing jobs to locate off shore. These agreements also serve to destroy small farms and small businesses in favor of those same mega corporations thus rendering the American people dependent on the whims of government for the necessities of life. This would save several hundred billion dollars per year.

  1. Withdraw From All Foreign Alliances and International Organizations. These agreements and organizations such as the UN and NATO continually seek to destroy American sovereignty and tend to lead us into foreign wars that have little or nothing to do with the defense of America. A free and independent people should have no part in such agreements and organizations. This would save hundreds of billions of dollars per year and would allow for the rebuilding of our military for the true defense of the American people and our way of life.

  1. Close Down Much Of The Federal Government. Many federal departments such as the Department of Education, Department of Energy, Department of Transportation, and the Department of Commerce serve no useful purpose and should be closed and their assets liquidated and returned to the US treasury. The primary effect of these departments seems to be the increase of government power and control over the lives of the American people. This would save at least several hundred billion dollars per year.

  1. Abolish The IRS And The Income Tax. The cost saving ideas previously listed and discussed would allow for a balanced budget and the American economy would rebound very quickly. The government, then reduced to Constitutional size, could easily be funded by a small, non-punitive, tariff. There should be no direct federal tax on the American people. This would save untold amounts of money.

  1. Repudiate All Public Debt To The Banks. Public and private debt are very different in that a private debtor voluntarily pledges his own assets, income, etc. in return for a loan and thus the creditor foregoes the use of present money in expectation of being repaid with interest. A public debtor, on the other hand, pledges other people’s future income and assets which that public debtor must take from those people by force. None of them had direct say in the making of the debt. In addition, much public debt to the banks was incurred through fraud and extortion of the kind that occurred when Congress was intimidated into voting for the bailout with threats of civil unrest and martial law. These tactics would land most people in prison if used in private business deals. Foreign governments who hold American debt should be assured of repayment and their investments should be protected as much as possible thus foreign trade could continue and government could continue to be funded. There should be plenty of money available to redeem our bonds, etc. from foreign governments and this would have the additional benefit of reducing our dependence and vulnerability to blackmail.

  1. The Portion Of The Public Debt Owed To Other Federal Agencies Should Be Written Off. The federal government carries a large amount of debt owed to various departments of the Federal Government and this debt should be written of and stricken from the books.

If the Federal Government would take the steps outlined in this article the American economy would not only recover but would unleash a new era of innovation and production. Do Congress and the new President care enough about the American people, their lives, their families, their liberty, their security and their peace to do these things? So far the answer appears to be no, but time will tell. If the Federal Government were to take these steps, it should then back off and leave the economy alone. As someone once said, “there is no problem that government can’t make worse”. Personal and business debt would be shaken out through payment, write-offs, bankruptcy, and other methods. There would be a quick recovery and balance sheets would soon return to normal. Instead, our government has reduced interest rates to zero and will soon “stimulate” the economy with hundreds of billions of dollars of borrowed or created money which will make the problem worse, a lot worse. What happens when the government’s tactics do not work? Well, I suppose that is one reason why all those Federal troops have been assigned to Northern Command.
