  • 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?

  • A couple of Michigan legislators want to lock people away for life for reverse engineering car software. It’s already illegal to do it in many cases; the DMCA protected Volkswagen for a while from having its cheatware discovered, and it prevents people from creating diagnostic tools in competition with the licensed ones. I’m not surprised the Detroit car lobby would try for even stronger measures, though I didn’t expect it to get quite this draconian.

  • 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?
