Yep. I have the deed to my property locked in a safe that says we own this land free and clear. But every year when I write that property tax check out I’m reminded that it’s not really mine… sad. I don’t mind paying for services I actually use (fire coverage, police coverage, etc) but it's all the other stuff that get’s me.
No poop, RJJ. The solution to that is to bring the argument all the way to the Supreme Court that it's for the downtrodden transsexual and undocumented who haven't the means to provide for themselves due primarily to the prejudices of President Donald Trump.
Happy Thanksgiving, Brother. :)
I don't know about deeds but if you'll look at your DL or social sec # or any other government issued documents you'll see your name in upper case. Legally, that means you (we) give the government 'tacit' approval to subjugate you (us). That we're subject to the government or slaves, if you will.
Any Constitutional lawyers in the house?
True ownership of land without any fee can only be proven under an allodial title. A claim which almost nobody can ascertain today.
ALLODIUM (Webster’s 1828 dictionary)
Freehold estate; land which is the absolute property of the owner; real estate held in absolute independence, without being subject to any rent, service, or acknowledgment to a superior. It is thus opposed to feud. In England, there is no allodial land, all land being held of the king; but in the United States, most lands are allodial.
ALLODIAL (Black’s Law Dictionary, 2nd Ed.)
Free; not holden of any lord or superior; owned without obligation of vassalage or fealty; the opposite of feudal. Barker v. Dayton, 28 Wis. 3S4; Wallace v. Ilarmstad, 44 Pa. 499.
ALLODIUM (Black’s Law Dictionary, 2nd Ed.)
Land held absolutely in one’s own right, and not of any lord or superior ; land not subject to feudal duties or burdens. An estate held by absolute ownership, without recognizing any superior to whom any duty is due on account thereof. 1 Washb. Real Prop. 10. McCartee v. Orphan Asylum, 9 Cow. (N. Y.) 511, 18 Am. Dec. 516.
Most land in the US indeed used to be allodial, not anymore. Most private land today is subject to the state incorporated. This transfer of ownership from private hands to the state occurred when the US went almost bankrupt, but to prevent declaring national bankruptcy the politicians decided to hand over all of our gold and title to property as a surety for the huge debt we owed to the central bankers. Today practically nobody owns real money or a real title to land. Any title to land is merely a certificate of the state's possession of the real title to the land.

I don’t know about that. I see both the city and state interfering in favor of the demonstrators, so they can shut off their tax base. You know, like cutting off their collective noses to spite their faces.

Western Washington Police Dept, 25 full time classified(?) employees and approximately 25 part time student employees. Wow, that many, and I have to wonder just how many of them are actually cops. Then, she expects a full time body guard because of online BS. Granted, it should be investigated. http://www.wwu.edu/ps/police/

Yeah, you just gotta know Rahm Dead Fish is such an excellent influence.

Apparently a bald guy.

It took the city and state more than a year to bring charges against this guy? Strong allegiance or an even stronger union. It is Chitcago.
ConveneANewCourt, I know what you mean. I retired during the Clinton Admin and thought that was bad enough. Our son wanted to join as well, but we convinced him to stay in college.

FightLikeAGirl, Thank you and you are far too kind. May you and your family also have a wonderful and happy Thanksgiving. That goes for all here.

EAST, I think that it would be no problem to open the detainment facility in a snap. Remember, there wasn’t such a facility when Clinton rushed in Cuban refugees quickly followed by the next wave of Haitian refugees in ’94. With the onslaught of more and more Haitians he had the Cubans sent to Panama and another hasty facility constructed. GITMO just grew from there starting again in ’03. Anyway, for his impending arrival the military would make it ready in a snap.
No need for Gitmo, or even any cell. Just pillory the punk, naked, in the village square, an "insert brain here" tattoo, with an arrow pointing to his rump. We could make an event out of selecting which village out of all the several many thousands volunteering, and what for his being so laughably puny and under-strength, any Seventh Grade wood shop could craft a pillory deemed "inescapable," even assembled with scotch tape and toilet paper tubes rather than nuts, bolts and hardwood.

Heh-heh-heh, Rush should have some Club GITMO fun Monday.
