The Supreme Law
Sam Aurelius Milam III
As a treaty to which the USA is a party, the UN Charter is part of the Supreme Law of the Land.
The UN was allegedly intended to address only international matters and was restricted by its Charter from interference in domestic disputes:
Last July, Kofi Annan, then Undersecretary for UN Peacekeeping, made this statement:1
Kofi Annan is now the UN Secretary-General. He is actively advocating "change" as the program for the future. The nature of that change is all too clear. The UN is positioning itself to supersede all present world governments. Unless we stop it, the UN will be — within our lifetimes — the Supreme Law of the World.
Gov't Wants to raise your kids
John Webster; http://www.vikora.com/CWS/jwebster/
This political agenda to control how your children are raised, is being pushed by those that believe that the Government could make everything right if it just had more control. This message is even being pushed by our daily newspaper and the TV media. They are trying to seduce us into accepting this Government control of how the other person raises their child.
Well, as far as the government is concerned we are the other person. First we get a barrage of media hype telling us how evil it is that someone is raising their children differently than you or I would. Then come the laws, and eventually arrests with the children being taken away from their parents.
We recently saw this with the Female Circumcision issue. Nowhere in the Media's hate rhetoric did they mention that this ritual was being conducted by parents that really cared deeply for their children and who thought this was best.
This is the dark side of democracy: the Tyranny of a Majority led by a media that believes in ensuring Political Correctness laws. These new laws are then enforced at the point of a gun by the police and courts that believe that "Political Might makes Right" and "The Ends justify the Means."
During recent years in Congress and our state legislature, any bill that purported to be against "Child Abuse" automatically got voted into law since it would be political suicide to vote against it. Yet, many of the add-ons to these bills had very little to do with child abuse and everything to do with enforcing politically correct parenting. For example, in California it now is a felony punishable by up to eight years in prison, for parents to advise or encourage their teenager to become sexually active. It doesn't even require the teenager to act on the advice; giving that advice is the crime. Is this really child abuse?
Take it from me, the problem is not with parents that care about their own children but just want to raise them differently. The real problem is when others interfere in the raising of our children. Today, much of that interference comes from a government bent on enforcing Political Correctness in parenting.
Many of these laws would be normally unenforceable. So a Federal task force was put together to aid local law enforcement, including our own San Jose Police, in catching these supposedly deviant parents. The entrapment scam they used, depended heavily on the ability of the police to hide evidence and to do professional alteration of tape recorded evidence, it also depended on the local courts, the Santa Clara County Courts for example, to seal important documents, to prevent altered evidence from being analyzed, and to do whatever else was necessary to cover-up the illegal nature of this police activity.
This is an example of Organized Criminal Activity committed by the Fed's and our local San Jose Police, and condoned by our "Justice" System. These are Law enforcement agencies that apparently see themselves as being above the law. And this effort was not being directed against hardened criminals, but against Politically Incorrect parents, supposedly in an effort to "Protect the Children."
If you love and care about your children, are you prepared to raise your children the way the Politically Correct majority rules, or should you, the parent, be the one that decides what is best?
|Letters to the
Just a line to let you know I agree with you completely — 1. morality must come from within us. (Of course, unfortunately, it is possible to legislate away all demonstrations of it) and 2. It would be highly preferable for Christians & whatever to live side-by-side in toleration. It sometimes works out that they do — until some government interferes ....

— Elliot; N. Merrick, New YorkPS. A states' rights issue dear to my heart right now is the current decriminalization & legalization of marijuana & other drugs by referendum in Arizona & California. The Drug War is of course an unconstitutional atrocity, & now the federal government wants to nullify the will of the people, as if Arizona & California were Angola, Haiti or Nicaragua. Democracy only applies if the herd votes the way the Ruling Class wants it to vote. US citizens have as much democratic freedom as the Algerians — they're just too vegetablized to notice.
To debate issues without first understanding the doctrines, assumptions, and definitions which underlie those issue is doing it backward. Such a process will result in issues being decided based on whim, preconceived notions, or expediency. However, if you first resolve the basics — doctrine, assumption, and definition — then you can reason your way to consistent positions on every issue. This is why I try to concentrate on the basics in the Frontiersman.
Hypocrisy Breeds Contempt
Sam Aurelius Milam III
Santa Clara County, California has forced me out of my home because of an alleged arrearage of $32,000 on an unproven child support obligation. At the same time, the U.S. government is $1.4 billion in arrears on its acknowledged obligation to the UN, and is unlikely to be punished at all.1 The contempt that I feel for such hypocrisy surpasses my powers of description.
New Year's Resolution
Sam Aurelius Milam III
I pledge deliverance from the flag of the United States of America, and from the repugnance for which it stands: one abomination sundered from God, inexcusable, with no liberty or justice at all.
On the Road with Buffalo Hunter
Buff was riding the bus in Seattle recently, and observed that a woman who boarded the bus was weeping piteously. The only seat available at the time was beside the man directly in front of Buff, so that's where the woman sat.
As the woman continued to cry, the man beside her looked uncomfortable, but sympathetic. Presently, he cleared his throat and, with some hesitation, asked the woman if he could be of some assistance.
"Well," sobbed the woman, "I doubt it. I just finished my last visit with my analyst!" She cried louder.
"The last visit?" asked the man uncertainly.
"Yes!" wailed the lady. "He said he can't help me!"
"Gee, I'm sorry," said the man sympathetically.
"You see," confided the distraught woman through her wracking sobs, "I'm a nymphomaniac!"
"Oh, I see," said the man uncertainly.
"But you see," continued the woman with a cry of despair, "that isn't really the big problem!"
"It isn't?" asked the man.
"No!" she wailed. "The real problem is that I can only get turned on by Chinese cowboys!"
"Ahh!" said the man with a growing smile. "Please allow me to introduce myself. My name is Bucky Chang!"
Sadly, at this point in the conversation the bus arrived at Buff's destination and he was unable to tell us what happened next.
