CAFR Confession


A friend and listener to our local AM station took our interview with the mayor of Salt Lake County, where he admits to the county CAFR and over $650 million in extra fund balances. He also included the CAFR pages I read from as reference.

Though I already posted the interview (audio only), I feel like this is the most important public official confession as to the wealth of the government as shown in government’s financial statements.

Please pass this on…

Comprehensive Annual Financial Reports and TRF’s -vs- Common, Natural, Maritime, and UCC Law – Which takes precedence right now?


When I first met Walter Burien, I was full of anger and resentment… Not towards him, of course!

It’s just that I had learned so much about the corruption and horrific truths about so many things that I had become hopeless (thank you to great men like Alex Jones, Alan Watt, Mike Rivero, Jeff Rense, Steve Quayle, and others for that dour education).

I kept wanting to talk about things that I had researched and heard on the radio or in random emails with Walter.

“Walter, what do you think of this?” – “Walter, what about the horrible things that they did?” – “Walter, don’t you think this is important?” – “Are they the elite?”

But every time, even though he knew what I was talking about, he just shrugged it off as if it didn’t have any relevance to anything and kept talking about CAFR’s and TRF’s.

The best answer I got out of him was “What does it matter…?”

Needless to say, this pissed me off! I wanted to be heard! And because of this resentful state of mind, I wasn’t hearing or comprehending what really needed to be communicated to me.

And so, when I calmed down enough and realized that I was talking to what you might call the guru of government corruption and wealth, I fell silent and just started to listen…

And suddenly, once I was able to push all of the little pieces of the much more grand puzzle that I know I will never fully comprehend out of they way, I started to understand the importance of what this smoking, long-haired, long-winded, incredibly intuitive dude was saying. I started to comprehend what trouble we are all in if we don’t do something immediately to reverse the deadly course this country and it’s government have taken.

And I realized then that he was absolutely correct about these extraneous puzzle pieces… IT DOESN’T MATTER!!!

You see, we all perceive things in our own way. We all listen to different sources of information. We all like or dislike those sources of information based on other peoples perceptions of those sources. And we all comprehend the information that best suits our perspectives. And without even realizing it, we form our opinions of what we perceive as real or important from the hand-picked bowl of factoids swirling around in our heads that together give us our perception of the real world.

In short, we are all in a constant state of cognitive dissonance. (http://www.viewzone.com/cognitivedissonance.html) Sure, we all know so much about so many different things, and knowledge is the key to comprehension. But what good does that knowledge of scattered little pieces from the unlimited cornucopia of fruit from the tree of knowledge do for us. How does this knowledge solve the problems that we all know this tree creates?

(I just used cornucopia in a sentence!)

In the end, it’s just information. And like a computer hard drive, we can only store so much of this conspiracy in the space of our minds until the drive gets full and can’t save any more data in a comprehensive way, or without writing over something else.

We learn something new and amazing, but then that thing reveals five more amazing things. And when those are revealed, suddenly we have 25 new and amazing things to learn, which points to what seems at the time to be an unattainable 125 new and amazing things. But eventually, we attain them, or at least an interesting enough part of them to look at the next 625 things with enough curiosity to actually keep this cycle going perpetually.

So, at what point do we loose the ability to keep our peripheral vision on all of these new and amazing things before we find that our un-sunned skin and lack of social involvement are signs that we are spending way too much time online or in books trying to figure out who is the main group of conspirators and who their leader is?

IT DOESN’T MATTER !!!

Now let me justify that, as well as answer the challenge of the title of this rant… which information should take precedence right now: CAFR’s and TRF’s  -or-  everything else…

Many responses, comments and emails I’ve received from the readers of my previous entry (The Biggest Game In Town…) who by the way have been very kind, have brought up common law, natural law, UCC code and Maritime law, the court of record, and many other topics which I must say interest me to the extreme. But, I have to ask myself…

Do they matter right now?

As much as I can’t wait to tear into this multitude of information and set myself free from taxes and tyranny, unfortunately the answer is no.

Is it relevant? Oh yes, very much so…

Will it help me solve the country’s problems, not just my own personal ones? No, I’m afraid not.

Let me explain, and by no means do I mean to belittle anyone or their cause, be it just, and for the good of the republic.

First, I always like to think of things in terms of relativity. I like to have a realistic perspective on life and all that goes on within it. And I always like to tell the truth, no matter how much trouble it gets me into.

So, let’s look at an example of reality:

If you are at an intersection with a four way stop sign, and you are in a fragile Geo Metro, and to the left of you there is a massive, decked out Dodge Hemi 4×4 who just pulled up to his stop sign at the same time as you pulled up to yours, who goes through the intersection first?

Well, the “law” or at least social  protocol states that the car on your right has the “right of way“, and so the Geo Metro wins with the perceived power of right of way (the law).

But I submit to you that the truck to the left wins every time regardless of the law or your perception of it, simply because the tires are as big as the entirety of the quite crush-able Geo Metro!

Will you challenge the 4×4 (the people) with your frail little body of a car (the government, who are about as useful as a Geo Metro) if he (the people) decides to take the right of way (power) from you?

This is the perception of ownership (in this case of the road). If the people unite to become the massive supreme and sovereign force they are, take down the “owners”, and rework that ownership for the people, then the people (4×4) take ownership from the government, queens and kings (Geo Metro).

So, let’s say we discover that the Rothschilds and the queen of England do indeed “own” everything in the world…

What does that mean exactly? What if they all die? Who owns it then? Then, what if they die? And then once it gets down to the last two people on Earth, and one claims total ownership of said Earth, and he dies… then what? Do you the sole surviving human own the Earth? Can you prove this ownership? To whom? Animals don’t read…

It’s just on paper. It means nothing unless you (we) let it. And we can take it back any time we want through peaceful means by getting TRF’s voted in place in each government venue.

But only if we unite and become Bigfoot the monster-truck and get this show on the road.

Yes, common law is a fascinating thing, and I can’t wait to start studying all of this conceptual semantic law.

But… Though I am not familiar with the technical aspects of Common Law, Natural Law, UCC Code law, the court of record, and the laws of the land and all that goes with it, I do know for a fact that it isn’t nearly as significant as what Walter and CAFR’s and the comprehension of government investment wealth for the general public and the change that is necessary with that.

Frankly, I don’t care who in their own perception rules the world, and here’s why:

#1) Once we set up a TRF in a city, the whole of the books for that city will be revealed. This will reveal links to other city’s, states, and countries for which the corruption and wealth building in that now completely audited TRF’d city was involved in. Thus, we discover who’s in charge by the chain reaction of audits in new TRF-based cities.

#2) Common law has the same symptoms as misguided or misused faith. Religion gives people hope. But this kind of hope, or faith, more often than not leads to inaction due to the faith that heaven awaits you regardless of your actions. And when that happens, and otherwise good religious folks refuse to get involved in government or politics, corruption in government and politics take over. Hope is a very dangerous tool. I should only have to point to Obama’s use of the empty campaign promises of “Hope and Change” to prove my point here. A faithful person full of hope who is convinced that everything will be alright simply because he believes in something else, easily becomes inactive in the real world around him. Even to the point that they will watch their own government order our armies to kill millions of innocent darker-skinned people without even a protest, simply because they have faith in their hearts that a few of those dark-skinned people in some far off place ran a few planes into some buildings in New York and Washington.

Proof? Nope. Just blind faith in the media… their God.

Inversely, a person who removes themselves from the tyranny of Maritime U.C.C. Code and law and clings to being free by natural or common laws, also may become inactive in the fight to set things right for our country as a whole. They have faith that they are free from the constraints of government and taxes and other tyranical slavery. But there is a huge problem with this inaction or lack of participation in the system that still governs everyone else who is unfamiliar with these freedoms around them, which is probably 98% of America – who still have faith in and believe in the law of the land and their corrupt government, frustrating as that is. They cling to thier social security number as if it was their first born. And I can sum this problem and the danger of it up in one word…

Rendition!

Obama’s new hand-me-down toy. How will common law save you if you are whisked away with no trial and no jury and no rights whatsoever to a holding cell in Ecuador? Think it can’t happen to you? Do you really think freedom brings some sort of immunity to this type of thing? Is there a freedom card that you present to get out of sticky situations in other countries… Or even in our own now completely corrupt and corporate (government) owned jail system? Learn more about rendition here: (Video)  -  (Story)  -  (Story)

You see, this common law and natural freedom is still based on a set of ideals and laws, god’s laws or other ones, that are still valid at this particular time in history if you know enough to invoke them. But if we allow the government to buy up every aspect of the United States, and they almost have by this point, and then take over the country, burn the Constitution and change the name to some Global Union of _______ ,  and make it a socialist fascist corporate state, what good will all of this common law knowledge be to anyone. It will become completely obsolete – null and void the second this takeover is complete. It would be as helpful as a 400 pound woman in a 150% gravity environment. When Rome took over a neighboring country, they did not abide by that countries laws in their theft no matter how beautiful and idealistic they were. If you went up to a Roman diplomat or soldier and tried to invoke common law from your now defunct country, you’d find yourself in the Colosseum being eaten by lions.

So, if you were to ask me what the importance of this whole social viability/common law/natural law/whatever you call it law, which is completely co-dependent on the current system of government and law (in other words America still being a free America despite the SS# and all that) compared to the importance of what Walters TRF’s will accomplish in protecting all of our sacred laws, constitutional or other, I’m going to have to say that TRF’s are 20,000,000 times more important at this time. Because all of those free-man laws go out the window if and when we are overtaken in a war or on paper by another country, a union of countries, or a conglomerate corporate monster, and we become Chinamerica. That is the thing that we must concentrate on and stop. And everyone that values their common or natural law status in this as of now free country, must maintain that country in its current state in order to keep those rights viable and applicable.

They are not free. We must fight for them and keep them.

And the country or corporate fascist government with the biggest stick (the biggest 4×4 truck) is going to win, and your idealist rights which are based on this constitutional system being still valid and screwing everyone else but you and your common law, will fade away into the night. That is, unless we take the investment wealth and “ownership” of our country back. And so far, the only person that has shown me how to do this is Mr. Walter Burien. (CAFR1.com)

So, by all means continue to practice common law, natural law, and any other free law that you can think of. I personally can’t wait to indulge in this myself. It gives me goosebumps.

But don’t for one minute think that this alone makes you a free man (or woman) or that you can stop paying attention and fighting for this system and its reconstructive change. Or you might be in for a shocking surprise when there is no corrupt United States government left to claim your freedom from. The Communists shoot people like you!

I would love to be wrong about this, and I may be. Corrections and debate to my humble opinions here will be warmly accepted…

The Biggest Game In Town: Walter Burien And Comprehensive Annual Financial Reports


***NOTE*** I have now released a documentary about this subject, which goes into specific detail regarding this article and the corporate structure of the United States. You may view it for free at: http://thecorporationnation.com/

 

—————————————————-

 

I’d like to share with you what happened to Walter Burien on Wednesday, January 6, 2010 as he spoke with George Noory live on Coast-To-Coast radio, the 5th largest syndicated radio show in America. This interview only happened after years of goading and begging from other guests and callers to have Walter as a guest.

Mr. Burien was scheduled to be on this show for a three-hour interview, an almost unheard of time slot reserved for only the most special of guests. Keeping in mind that the subject matter of this interview – government wealth, corruption, and the proof of this subject through the analyzing of our governments Comprehensive Annual Financial Reports (CAFR’s) – has never been allowed to be mentioned on or in any corporate or mainstream outlet. You can then perhaps understand what happened next.

On Tuesday and Wednesday (the day of the show) Mr. Burien was the only scheduled guest for the show, and Walter was prepared for a three-hour talk. As the interview went on for two solid hours and as the secretive criminal beans were being spilt in a major way, a sudden click happened in the middle of Mr. Noory talking, and Walter’s line went dead. The show suddenly had a new guest to fill the remaining hour. It was then placed onto the Coast-To-Coast website that a second guest was now to appear.

Mr. Burien tried to reconnect, but was told he was only scheduled for two hours. He waited to be called back, but never was. No explanation. No apology. And no personal note from Mr. Noory…

Just silence…

Unfortunately, Walter Burien was saving the best and most hard-hitting information for last. He didn’t get to mention many aspects of what I consider the most important information available on what some may call the real order of things. And he didn’t have the chance to tell George’s listeners about his new documentary that will be released in just about one more day.

A fresh new “The Biggest Game In Town” will be available on the web for viewing on or around the 10th of January, 2010. I would encourage everyone reading this to view the documentary and support Mr. Burien in any way you can. For, of all the thousands of men and woman out there fighting against and trying to expose the greed and corruption of our governmental system and its monetary theft of the American people, Walter is the only one who actually has a solution instead of just another perspective on the problem: a peaceful, logical, economically viable, and extremely achievable grass-roots solution – but only with our help.

Let’s face it. You know you’re on to something important, big, and secretive when you get cut off of a radio show an hour before your time is up with no explanation.

Please visit Mr. Burien’s CAFR1 website at (http://CAFR1.com) and learn what this man has to tell you. He has opened my eyes in a way that would have taken twenty years of hard studying and the constant scrutinizing and analyzing of these and other documents to even begin to comprehend this information. And now that I know, I feel it is my civic and moral duty to share it with you…

When bad men combine, the good must associate; else they will fall, one by one, an un-pitied sacrifice in a contemptible struggle.– Edmund Burke — From his essay: ‘Thoughts on the Cause of the Present Discontents’…


…and Often mis-quoted as the following:

All that’s necessary for the forces of evil to win in the world is for enough good men to do nothing.

 

The hottest fires in hell are reserved for those who remain neutral in times of moral crisis– Edmond Burke – again, with some dispute on the actual original quote.


–Ω–

I’d like now to share with you what I’ve learned from Walter Burien. This is not an easy subject to digest; in fact it hurts a bit when you realize that it is all painfully true… and fortunately, unlike most other truths in the world, quite easily verifiable. And so I would ask that you finish this essay in its entirety and click on all of the links associated with it. For if ever there was a red pill, this is it!

“Remember, all I am offering is the truth, nothing more…”

And down the rabbit hole we go…

Let’s start with how the government works, or more specifically, how it is set up. Each town, city, county and state has an individual government with individual budgets and finance books. City councils who sit in fancy pillared or droll state buildings usually govern those many individual governments. Also, there are local government bodies, such as school districts and municipalities like gas, electric, water and sewage, bridges and roadways, and so on who are individually governed bodies as well. And then there are other forms of special government wealth, like pension funds. On a larger scale, there is the federal government, the judicial and congressional governments, and so on down the line.

Together, these many individual governments are going to be referred to herein as “collective government”.

Just as ethnic groups in this country are considered minority populations with insignificant political and decision making power when compared to the Caucasian or “white” ethnic group, these individual governments are, when compared to the collective power of all of these governments joined together, insignificant.

The power of these individual ethnic groups can only be realized if they ban together to become the majority. Likewise, the thousands of individual governments in the United States are extremely powerful and wealthy when manifested as one “collective” governmental body – collective government.

Bearing this in mind, I will now reveal the man behind the curtain, so to speak…

Through collective government investments from all individual governments across the United States, the government owns most of the major corporations in America, and beyond.

I’ll say it again, in a different way. Collectively, through investment, the United States government owns most major corporations and just about everything else in America.

Please read on…

Of the Fortune 500 companies we hear about, and even invest in ourselves with our cute little peanuts we think of as personal wealth, the government has over the last 70 years or so taken financial controlling interest in all of these corporations. This is no exaggeration. This is no joke. This is the reality of the corporate and financial state of our country and it’s government.

So how has it gotten to this point?

In several ways…

Have you ever noticed that when a bond or proposition gets passed in your state for a construction or land management project, the actual project itself sometimes isn’t scheduled to begin until months or years in the future? It’s even written in most bills that the project wont start until a far off set future date.

Well… the money for that proposition or bill is immediately released upon passage of the legislation. Now you might ask yourself, if the money is there why doesn’t the project begin immediately?

Here is the answer…

That “taxpayer money” gets sent directly into what we’ll call a government “holding account” for a while, sometimes years and years before that public project actually begins.

Now, that money doesn’t just sit there… It is invested. It gains interest. It builds up extreme wealth – months or years of interest and capital gains on investments from that originally taxpayer funded money. This is all transpired digitally, of course.

But when it comes time to use that original amount of money for the project of which it was intended months or years later, the capital gains (profits) of that supposedly dormant money are separated from the original amount placed into the “holding account” and stay in the governments discretionary investment coffers and are then reinvested not for the benefit of the people, but for the wealth and profit of the corporate government. The problem and the inherent crime here is this – that profit is no longer considered tax-payer (public) owned money, since it was earned by investment or by accrued interest. That “extra money” goes elsewhere… mainly into other investments or funds which grease the pockets of the “in the know” politicians and corporations and other people and groups involved. Some open what are called “self insurance funds” and then draw dividends for themselves and their fellow conspirators for the rest of their political careers by insuring themselves with their own insurance funds. And the cycle goes on and on and on and on… and has for the last 70 years. And it has now reached the point where government owns it all!

How do I know this to be true?

When the yearly budget comes out for your town, city, district, county, state, and the whole country – the one that you and I and Joe Taxpayer sees that is usually in a deficit (in the red) – the money made on these individual government investments is not shown, because it is not in the “taxpayer budget” any longer. Therefore, it does not technically have to be accounted for to the taxpayers – who we can define as everyone who pays any form of taxes, which is by default everyone in the United States. There are of course, 100’s of different taxes – from gas tax to sales tax – that are used in this way as well. The money from all of these individual taxes once again just sits there and accumulates after being collected until it is distributed, and gains interest or is invested until it is spent for the purposes it was collected (apportioned).

On a side note: the reason so many people are against the Federal Income Tax is because that tax was never made legal. In order to be a legal tax according to the Constitution, the tax assessed must be apportioned – which means that it must be collected with the specific intent to only be used to pay for or fund a specific public works or public fund that is clearly defined. Since the Federal Income Tax is un-apportioned and therefore Constitutionally illegal, the money that is collected for that tax is used by the Federal Government to pay the interest only on the national debt. In other words, instead of printing its own money with no debt owed to anyone, our corporate government instead borrows money from the Federal Reserve Bank at interest – meaning there is never enough money printed to pay off that debt because it accrues interest the second it is printed, meaning it is devalued the second it is created.

Example: If America has one hundred dollars in circulation – meaning money printed on paper and being used as “legal tender” – that means that the treasury (government) borrowed that $100 from the Federal Reserve (a private bank), which means that in order to pay that money back, the treasury (government) must pay that $100 dollars back plus how ever much interest is attached to that $100 by the Federal Reserve Bank (a non-governmental private central bank).

So where do we get the extra printed money to pay back that money owed for the interest on the original $100 loan?

Well, since there is no money left after paying back the principle balance of $100, the only way to pay the interest owed to the Federal Reserve (private central bank) is for the Treasury (the corporate government) to borrow more money from the Federal Reserve (a corporate private bank) so that the accumulated interest owed on the first $100 can be paid back. The problem is, this new money borrowed has new interest attached, and this interest debt must eventually be paid back as well, meaning we must then borrow more money from the Fed at interest to pay the total principle balance plus the previous interest accrued on all of the previous money borrowed, and so on and so forth.

This, my friends, is what is commonly called a paradox.

In short, there is no way to ever pay off our debt to the Federal Reserve (a privately owned international bank), because there is never enough money printed to pay off the principle and the interest balances. Therefore, this system of borrowing money at interest will continue to the point that the interest owed can never be paid as it is more than the principle balance, making this the biggest scam (Ponzi scheme) ever perpetuated onto the American people in their history. Now imagine the same scenario with many trillions of dollars borrowed and re-borrowed and so on and so forth.

If you can’t picture what a trillion dollars looks like, just think of it this way… If I had 11 trillion one-dollar bills and I stacked them on top of each other in one single pile, that pile would reach all the way to the moon… and back to Earth.

Knowing then, that the Federal Reserve is a privately owned group of national and international banks and bankers, who have no actual binding ties or connections to the United States Government – and in fact control the decision and monetary policy of the United States economy, and therefore its financial and economic welfare, through the manipulation of monetary value, currency circulation, and interest rate regulation – the fact that all of our Federal Income Tax goes directly to this private corporate banking monster who controls this country through its system of tyrannical banking debt and interest, of which we are all collectively as taxpayers responsible for paying, is why there is such an uproar in the awakened minority citizenry of America. This is really just extortion. And the Feds recent threats to cause the stock market to drop 1,000 points a day until the banker bailouts were signed by congress only goes to prove that point. More and more people are learning the truth, and realizing that through this system of perpetual debt, we are not a free people but rather indentured servants to this banking conglomerate for generations to come. You’re so-called duty to pay your Federal Income Tax is non-existent, and the mindset that most people have been brainwashed into is that there is some form of honor in paying this tax, which again goes to absolutely nothing but interest owed to these central banks who are not the government. No public services are paid for with this money; money that should have been printed by our Congress as expressed in the Constitution, with no interest (debt) attached to it.

So where does the extra government corporate investment money go, and what proof is there of its existence?

The only way to see where this money goes is by looking at the Comprehensive Annual Financial Report (CAFR) for each local, city, state, and any other government office. The Federal Reserve even has one of these! You want to see an audit of the Federal Reserve? Just look at the Federal Reserve’s Comprehensive Annual Financial Report (CAFR) and go from there.

This “complete” budget and statement of earnings is required for all governments and corporate businesses, and it is available in the public domain… meaning it is very easy to acquire by the average Joe Citizen. A simple public records search or an Internet search will reveal this report for most individual governments and corporations. And if it doesn’t, they are in violation of their own codes on public disclosure.

The problem is, nobody knows its there. Nobody knows to put the pieces together. Nobody understands that there are literally 100′s of trillions of “collective” investments and funds that have been acquired by these individual governments that have been hidden in plain sight for decades, by separating the total governments wealth into individual and seemingly insignificant government funds and investments across the country. When considered collectively, these massive investment funds would pay off all debt in this country, and if worked correctly could eliminate all taxes through public-taxpayer instead of private-non-taxpayer investment of the same sort. This is what Walter Burien and CAFR1 are trying to achieve. This is the solution I mentioned earlier. His Tax Retirement Funds (TRF’s) are this country’s saving grace. Learn more about them here: (http://taxretirement.com/)

This is what I refer to as poking the scorpions’ nest!

Now, to understand how these facts regarding governments complete corporate takeover and management of America, let’s look at current events. Very recently a merger with media conglomerates NBC and Comcast was announced. These are definitely fortune 500 worthy companies. They are therefore already collectively controlled through collective government investments. And they will never let this information (CAFR’s and collective government investments) get out into the public through this government controlled media. Why? Because these media companies are collectively owned through collective government investment!

Comcast and NBC/Disney are two of the largest media conglomerates in the world. One creates and broadcasts the media – the other controls the equipment and digital airwaves to turn these broadcasts into the degrading entertainment and propaganda we see in our homes and at movie theatres, that we hear on the radio, and that we read in magazines, newspapers and digitally on our computers. Most people wont think anything of this merger and others like it that are constantly happening on a smaller scale; perhaps second-handedly recalling from an outdated textbook, the chapter on monopolies and anti-trust laws. Thinking about such things has, through the same media we are talking about here, been trumped by the reality show, celebrity lifestyles and deaths, “news entertainment” shows, and indoctrinating and manipulative sitcoms and movies – which have dumbed us down to the extent of actually believing that what happens on “Law and Order” is the reality of what actually happens in the law enforcement and criminal justice system. I assure you, this is not the case. Hospital shows are not accurate portrayals of how hospitals are actually run, and are not representative of the real state of the healthcare system. Police and detective shows are so far removed from reality that I laugh out loud at the ridiculous portrayal of “the system”.

The real conundrum of this situation is this: the merging of these two media companies, considering the controlled stock holdings of our collective government in these and most media companies, is in actuality being mandated (authorized) by the government itself as the majority stockholder. So protesting to the government about this merger is akin to asking a king to mediate his own decision regarding the merging of his own two kingdoms. Do you understand?

Corporations are the government are the corporations are the government…

Another way of looking at this conundrum is this:

When a major corporation donates money to a political campaign (remember almost all major corporations are government owned through collective investments), this is actually a loophole around campaign finance laws, as this is really just the government donating money to its own candidate or party through its collective-investment-owned “private” corporations. This is hard to swallow, but true as the nose on your face! For it was the banks who received the recent bailouts that were the largest campaign contributors to Barack Obama’s presidential campaign – in a big way. When you hear that all of these elites sit on each other’s boards of directors, that’s only a half-truth.

And sure, you can continue to vote if it makes you feel better. But rest assured you are voting for the two or three candidates that were chosen and hyped by the corporate government that is already in place, through the controlled media (that again is owned through collective government investment). Real “alternative” or “third party” candidates who campaign on truly changing “the system” for the benefit of the people will never be allowed to attain high office – the recent corporate mandate of electronic and completely hack-able and changeable voting machines in most states and the expulsion of paper ballots leaving no paper trail through no-bid government contract see’s to that fact.

It is not the votes that count, but who counts the votes.– Josef Stalin –

Our congressmen, our senators, and our president are literally automaton puppets, actors placed into power through fixed elections and then skillfully manipulated to pass laws and create legislature that helps in this whole process of land acquisition, the corporate takeover of all infrastructure and commercial real estate, and the deregulation and privatization of all regulated industries, including: banking, airlines, food, water, transportation, prisons, media, medical, and many others.

For instance, (over 1%) or 1 out of every 100 Americans are in prison. That’s 3 million plus people! That’s more than any other country in the world, including Korea and Communist China. Many prisons are now built or owned by private companies like Halliburton, since this industry was deregulated and private corporations are now allowed to build and maintain prisons. It’s big business… and cheap forced labor. And the government owns these corporations as well, through collective investment.

So let’s talk about a few of these industries that are owned by our government.

My favorite example of the collective government ownership of these corporations is Microsoft. This will really hit home with most of you. Though collective government investments, Microsoft Corporation is approximately 83% owned by government. Take the investments of the five burrows of New York City, add in the pension funds of CALPERS in California (which is now an offshore corporate fund) and other state funds, a few school districts here and there, and many other small, medium and large individual governments and municipalities across the nation, combine them together, and you come up with the representative governmental investment total of around 83% majority ownership. The easy way to say this is that the government owns 83% of Microsoft.

“Collective government” is a very important phrase to comprehend.

For those of you who don’t comprehend the severity of this situation, let me explain…

Let’s imagine for a moment a board meeting at the Microsoft Corporation. I wonder who would be there? I don’t know exactly, but I’d bet at least 83% in attendance would most likely be corporate government representatives! The Defense Department would surely be there, for national security reasons of course. CIA? Probably, since they use the Internet to catch criminals and since they have so much power now to spy on us thanks to bills like The Patriot Act. How about Homeland Security? The military, and all of its branches? Raytheon, and other weapons contractors would probably be there too. I wonder who would represent the Federal Government? How about the Federal Reserve (a non-government agency) and the IRS (the Federal Reserves non-governmental private police and collection force for the central banks)? Heck, even Bill Gates would be there, but he would probably only have about as much power as the President of the United States has over his corporation, which is thankfully still called America. Yes, in case you were wondering, the United States is a corporation. Look it up! (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lVsMUpPgdT0) (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=klwWcp9eiPw&feature=related)

Ah, Microsoft…

You see, everything we do in life is now done or available on the Internet in the World Wide Web. Whether you are plugged in or not, your information is available for download. And Microsoft is how we access that virtual world (through Windows and it’s sub-programs like Internet Explorer). When we enter all of our passwords, PIN’s, account numbers, our mother’s maiden names… and then we voluntarily record all of our most closely guarded secrets and personal information onto websites like MySpace (which is now owned by Rupert Murdoch’s “Fox” News Corporation, which is a mainstream media company, which again means it’s owned collectively by government) (http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/business/4697671.stm) Microsoft collects all of that information though its software and sends it back to itself and its servers and anyone else who pays for the sharing of that information.

This is called data mining. And the government (Microsoft) is data mining all of our most closely held secrets and information, and it is doing so with our permission. You gave that permission with the simple click of a mouse in that service agreement (the one with all of the small print) that you signed but did not read when you were so exited about getting that new P.C. last Christmas. This agreement – the “End User Lease Agreement” (E.U.L.A.) gives Microsoft (the government) complete control over the content, applications, and information sharing capabilities of your computer.

Web-Based Environment Management (W.B.E.M.) allows Microsoft and other companies and corporations to virtually control and monitor your computer from remote locations through the internet.

The (M.R.U.) Most Recently Used list is an individual usage list, of which there can be many MRU’s running at one time. They record every action you or your computer makes; every thing you download and everything you say. Some of the more advanced applications even record every keystroke made on your keyboard so that it can be reconstructed later. When you hear someone say, ‘My computer is acting so slow’, this is mainly because these M.R.U’s that are currently running beyond your control or knowledge are constantly updating Microsoft and anyone else who’s listening in the background.

In Windows XP (and other versions) – if you click on your Start Button, go to Settings, click Control Panel, then click Administrative Tools, and finally click on Services… you can view some of Microsoft’s so-called “services” that are controlling your computer and your life. Here are a couple examples of these services:

Routing and Remote Access – “Offers routing services to businesses in local area and wide area network environments.” – Sounds harmless, right? But when enabled, this allows corporate advertisers to localize their advertisements to your specific IP (Internet Protocol) location: the geographical area in which your Internet connection is based. This is why you see adds from lonely housewives in your town looking for love and other localized advertisements that amaze you every time you get online. How’d they do that? Well now you know. There is a lot of money involved in this type of information sharing and advertising, as you can imagine. And if you click on one of those localized advertisements, the fact that you did so means more advertisers will be knocking down your virtual door to personalize their own advertisements to you according to what sites you visit and which products you shop for and buy online. This “service” can be disabled, but Microsoft will probably enable it the next time you go online. After all, you gave it permission to do so.

Remote Registry – “Enables remote users to modify registry settings on this computer. If this service is stopped, the registry can be modified only by users on this computer. If this service is disabled, any services that explicitly depend on it will fail to start.” – The “Registry” on your computer is the program that manages your P.C. It’s like an index or blueprint of all your programs, which tells your computer’s programs and applications what they are allowed and not allowed to do when your computer is turned on. This means that if your ‘remote registry’ is enabled, any Microsoft program can change or alter your registry at any time, because you agreed to this in your E.U.L.A. You effectively gave Microsoft the right to crash your hard-drive beyond repair from a remote location when they don’t like what you are doing. Sucks, don’t it?

Oh… and for those of you who say, “Whew, glad I’m on a Mac!” guess again. Apple is a major corporation with major media outlets and influence on the economy and the citizenry… you bet they are owned by the government through collective government investments! And yes, I get adds from Lonely housewives near me on my Mac as well. And I’m writing this on Microsoft Word for Mac! Oh, the irony…

Now maybe you can understand why government control of such intricately personal aspects of our lives through corporations like Microsoft is such a concern. If a local company is advertising to you through Microsoft’s “services”, you can bet your arse that the government is using these and their own services for much more devious purposes.

So what’s the bottom line? You have absolutely no privacy in anything you do on your computer once you go online! Period.

This type of symbiotic corporate/government structure is prevalent in all industries and walks of like, not just computers. The same conglomerations often own the alternatives to anything you buy. For instance, while we think we are being somehow different or cool by listening to an “alternative music” station, we are just being manipulated by some very clever marketing. You see, the same corporation that owns that “Alternative” station also owns most of the other stations that your chosen favorite alternative station competes against, as well as the record company that produced it. It even puts down on-air those other stations it owns because that will make some listeners chose to listen to this particular media corporations’ other channels or stations. When we hear a song on a mainstream yet “alternative” radio station (remember all mainstream media is collectively owned by government, and mainstream is 99% of the media that you can effortlessly receive though the corporate governments F.C.C. airwaves), we are told who sings it, and then we go buy the album at one of the many conglomerate department stores or seemingly local chain stores (with corporately owned central hubs), all the while thinking we are being somehow unique from the rest of the crowd. This is marketing. And you and I are continuously falling victim to it and the distraction it causes. The media keeps us “masterfully entertained”, as Walter likes to say.

Then we go drive our alternative yet still equally gas and oil dependant hybrid cars, of which everyone else is also marketed to about their unique and conservation oriented styles, even though the creation and disposal of their batteries is secretly worse on the environment than ten years of the exhaust created from driving an SUV. And the battery must be replaced after five or six years! And so we drive… feeling better somehow about our insignificant pollution as we sip on one of 30 unique plastic bottled water brands marketed as environmentally friendly and recyclable, which it so happens are all owned by 4 major conglomerate corporations which are owned through collective investments by our government.

Should I choose Perrier… or its competitor, San Pellegrino? Well take your pick, for they are both owned and bottled by the Nestle’ Corporation (a government controlled entity).

Oh, well then I’ll switch to Calistoga. Oh wait, that’s Nestle’ too!

Well… who needs bubbles anyway?

Flat water… Hmmm. Let me see…

How about Arrowhead? What? That’s Nestle’ as well?

What about Crystal Geyser? Poland Spring? Zephyr Hills?

Sorry… all owned by Nestle’ along with at least 10 other alternative water brands that they purposefully market and compete against each other in their advertising and at different prices in order to appeal to at least one of the typical personality types of which billions of dollars were spent to figure out, and that we all unwittingly fit into.

You might as well just drink Nestle’ brand bottled water – the only honestly labeled brand out there, since it’s cheaper and comes from the same polluted tap water source! (https://realitybloger.wordpress.com/2009/09/28/the-california-water-museum-featuring-the-fluoride-deception/)

And, in case you missed it, the automobile industry in America was just taken over by the government. Any time the government “bails out” or gives large life-saving amounts of money to a corporation or all corporations in a certain industry… that spells takeover and control. It’s part of the “bailout” package. When the newly inducted corporations pay back that money at a later date, this is nothing more than the corporate government covering its tracks and completing the business transaction for the publics benefit and for media stories about the success of the bailouts.

So, how deep does this go?

Unfortunately, it is a bottomless pit.

While I have deep respect and admiration for local churches of any faith that do good in their communities and help the people there, I have some rather disappointing news about the religions that these churches belong to.

Since moving to Salt Lake City, I have been inundated by the Mormon doctrine. The Mormon’s essentially run the state of Utah’s government. Some places will not hire you unless you are a Mormon. Similar to Free-Masonry, of which the church’s founders were high members, the church helps those who help it… while shunning or “excommunicating” anyone who disagrees with its doctrines. Ironically, usually these are the people who need the church’s council, love and support the most.

I always wondered why the Mormon church was able to retain it’s non-profit status, since it has its hands in so many political campaigns and in the state of Utah’s government, and since it funds huge political campaigns like the recent California “vote yes on prop 8″ campaign and so many other human and civil rights issues. It’s actually a common question: How does a not-for-profit entity (church) give money for political aspirations and campaigns and influence an entire state or countries opinions in local and state elections, and still retain their non-profit status?

How indeed… Separation of church and state, right?

Wrong.

The Mormon Church (The Mormons) is actually a for-profit major corporation. It has mass wealth through these same types of investments. It is extremely, extremely wealthy.

But the corporate Mormon Church has a non-profit sub-division in which it does all of the charity work and altruistic not-for-profit Godly things that it does. This division is called “The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints”. And they are commonly referred to as “The Mormons” which is actually a falsity since the Mormons are just another big corporation with mass control over vast world populations and local governments. And each church whether aware of this corporate structure or not, pays the corporation though the money collected from its parishioners.

To it’s credit, and compared to the government corporations, the Mormons actually do some very good things. Their welfare system is top notch and has been copied by other countries and our own government welfare system is based upon it. But it is the volunteers that make this happen, not the corporation. They are not symbiotic by necessity, only in their corporate structure. It is the people who have the power to make the world better. One must always remember that.

What makes me most concerned about this corporate structure of churches and why I mention it at all is this: the president of the Mormon Church (which is the president of the corporation that is the Mormon Church) has been known to have one-on-one, secretive (non-public) meetings with the President of the United States behind closed doors in the Oval Office. Shortly after one of these meetings, the noted Professor Steven Jones was fired from Brigham Young University. I can only assume that this was for his exposing the fact that uniquely military-grade Thermate demolition explosives were found in the World Trade Center dust, which is impossible without it have been used to implode those buildings. This is a power that should not be had by any member of any church, whether this particular event was coincidental or not.

The Catholic Church is set up in the same way: The Vatican is a country. A corporation. It has its own police force. And the Pope… who may or may not have the real power in that corporate pyramid, also meets with our president behind closed doors and influences even more people in our country and across the world.

And, come to think of it, I’m pretty sure that all churches, from the Methodists – the church that I grew up in – to the Jewish faiths, are also built like this, corporately speaking. Why else would churches have general conferences, which are really just giant budget meetings?

Anyway, this is why the Mormons, The Catholics, and all the other religions are free to be involved in politics and government as much as they like… because they are for profit corporations, who mask themselves through their not-for-profit fronts (i.e. religion) where they unfortunately manipulate the opinions, voting habits, and lifestyles of the members of their sub-corporate houses of worship.

As for the government’s involvement or investment into these holy corporations, I have not researched this yet. But obviously the political influence is there, and that should raise any honest and righteous mans brow.

Again, my respect for local non-profit churches is immense. But isn’t it time for them to become aware of these facts and separate themselves from these for-profit corporations that bind them and influence their moral character? Isn’t it time that the community church becomes the truly free and spiritual houses of God that they portray themselves to be?

Corporate service to God is a truly strange and unholy concept.

So who knows about this?

How does a magician pull off a seemingly impossible magic trick right before your eyes?

By using the oldest trick in the book… distraction.

As his left hand moves around gracefully, drawing your attention away from the right hand, or as his assistant dressed in scantily clad glittery lingerie takes your eyes off of the magician himself, the right hand is busy doing the bait and switch – or the “trick” – right in front of your face.

This is magic defined… illusion and subterfuge. Nothing more.

So to is the subject of CAFR’s. Take away the distraction of the TV media, sex, drugs, sports and gambling… and the magic trick is revealed. It cannot be hidden any longer once the left hand sees what the right hand is doing. It just takes someone like me to uncover the trick and expose the truth.

But one man cannot do it alone. Many are needed.

So, the point of all of this is really quite simple. The only way to fight this is to expose the facts that I’ve just written here. You will not stop the government from merging two companies that it has controlling monetary interest in by crying and sending strong worded emails, making phone calls, or holding up signs referring to anti-trust laws and how unfair this is to us little guys. Things are way past the point of protesting. The country has for the most part been sold off to private corporations and public-private partnerships (PPP) … a bridge there, a road here, a few million acres there.

Learn about the atrocity of Public-Private Partnerships and their detriment to our country, which is intricately ingrained in this corporate takeover of America, here: (http://www.infowars.com/agenda-21-alert-public-private-partnerships/)

If you watched that video, you now understand the danger and ultimate corruption of these PPP’s. And to bring this danger home, I’d like to offer the most severe of possibilities with regards to how these Public-Private-Partnerships could easily be abused by our corporate government.

Consider the following:

Say the government decides that it cannot pay the budget for our military anymore as it continues to hide the CAFR from the publics’ comprehension. It announces publically that it will now join forces in a great new public-private-partnership (PPP) with several foundations (like the Rockefeller Foundation) and a few Weapons contracting companies (like Raytheon) so that our soldiers can get the pay they deserve and the equipment they need. This is the public relations announcement. It sounds like the good old corporate world is lending a helping hand in a time of need…

But the real translation would be this: The United States Government is transferring ownership of the military from the publics government ownership to a private corporate ownership, through corporations and foundations which it already owns through its collective investments. Therefore, the military will now be a privately owned military – a private army – controlled by government, but whose weapons and arms contracts are secured for the next 1000 years at no-bid pricing through these government owned corporations. This makes it a lot easier to break every single law ever written with regards to war crimes and Constitutional restrictions of such things. If everything is private, the people will own nothing. And the Geneva Conventions do not apply.

Again, this is the most extreme of examples, but one which is not at all out of the realm of possibility. After all, isn’t the United Nations already calling the shots with our military?

This must be taken very seriously, for the country that we have always considered and taken for granted as being free, is no longer free. It is owned almost outright by government investment.

In fact, I just found out that collectively through investments, public-private partnerships, and other devious means, the government of the United States (local, city, county, state, and federal) collectively owns about 87% of all land in the United States, leaving 13% to the actual people (citizens) for private ownership… and I’m not sure yet if that includes non-government owned or private corporate ownership in that 13%.

A corporation for a government is not the American way!

As several homes and the land they are built upon around where I live are being stolen by the government in the name of eminent domain, I cringe at the thought of the selfish and evil corporate government person or group that gave those orders. For surely they have land and a home as well. The land sits for a couple of years, and once everyone in the area begins or is paid to forget about the now vacant eminent domain government owned land, suddenly a new corporate structure will be built there. This means that the land is still government owned, and that through their corporate network, the government allowed the land to be transferred to one of its sister operations. Money, being nothing but fiat (worthless) paper backed by nothing, is just a tool used in the transaction, and it eventually is filtered back into the collective government corporate coffers. And that land will never be public-owned again.

This has got to stop…

As far as commercial real estate, and the 10-20% average vacancy rates in most cities across the United States in strip malls and what are now being called ghost malls… Guess who owns or is buying that commercial space once it is in default. The government! Local governments already collectively own most large malls anyway through their investments, as well as gas stations, gyms, movie theatres… the list is endless.

Do you think the government as a corporation cares one ounce whether or not a mom-and-pop store closes its doors after 30 years in business? No. It either already owns the land and building that business is on, or is interested in buying it once the shops go out of business. Land ownership is the goal, not some meager monthly rent. Power comes with ownership.

–Ω–

Ok, I figure by now you are having one of two reactions. Either you think I’m nuts – the trained and ingrained reaction most will have when confronted with such overwhelming conspiracy and corruption – and you will not even take the time to do a simple search on CAFR’s to see that I’m telling the truth, or… this has had a major impact on your comprehension and perception of the way things really work, and you will keep this letter or email as a favor to me in the case of something happening to me like what has happened to others who have tried to expose this information. For this is the information that above all else must be exposed. As Walter Burien likes to say…

“The easiest way to steal money from someone is for them to never know they had it in the first place.”

Well, now you know. Our money has been stolen from under our noses for decades.

For those of you who constantly crusade for the truth about 9/11/2001 to be released, and for a new investigation to be initiated, I only have this to say… This will never happen under the current system of corporate government. Again, the king will not punish himself. 9/11 is a cause that is dear to my heart, since I watched the events of that day from my roof in New York City just a short distance away, and had the missing persons center right across from my front door. I will never forget that vision or that sound from that day. But again I must reiterate that while protesting and handing out literature and movies has been a great tool in waking up the people about 9/11, it is time to take a different path. All of our scattered groups must unite in one peaceful cause. That cause, in order to effect real change, should be the exposure of the Comprehensive Annual Financial Reports and collective ownership and investment wealth of our government. You see everything else will follow… Audits will be done at all levels of government, mandated by the people who vote for TRF’s. Information will flow freely from the private hands of corporate government back into the hands of the public. All truths will be necessarily exposed in this way – through mandated audits. And the impenetrable wall that is our corporate government will eventually fall back into the publics’ tax-free hands. And those responsible will be held accountable. But until this wealth and power is transferred back to the people, we as a bunch of minority advocacy groups will never accomplish anything… unless we unite into one cause and become the majority. For the system will never reveal itself. Nor will it punish itself. 9/11 will remain hidden in the same warehouse as JFK, Waco, and other cover-ups until this new information has been discussed and spread far and wide. War crimes will not be administered until CAFR’s and government wealth are exposed and the military is once again a public entity controlled by congress and the United States is taken out of the United Nations.

The last thing to keep in mind is this: What Alex Jones calls compartmentalization – meaning one hand doesn’t know what the other is doing – is actually the case with many of our financial planners and politicians who have unwittingly been a part of this in their careers. Most people involved in small government in low to mid-level positions do not understand how this all works and fits together. Banks, businesses, media, churches, government… they all have corporate pyramid structures with very few at the top understanding the bigger picture.

To put this into perspective, consider this: 100 different people, with 100 different skills, each individually making 100 different parts, can easily build a complete nuclear bomb. Yet if they are never told what it is that they are making as a whole – the end product – they have no understanding or comprehension of their complicity in the making of that deadly bomb.

And understand that greed, theft and corruption have become so commonplace in the government and regular workforce that it is hard to succeed without succumbing to these traits. So this is not a call for torches and pitchforks. That is not necessary, appealing as it may be to some. The whole thing can be reversed. The same people in power can be made to give back the wealth of our nation without bloodshed and hatred, and while continuing to reap huge rewards for their service to the public instead of the corporation. This perhaps, is the best reason to listen to Walter Burien – the man with the golden solution.

But do understand that everyone in higher politics does comprehend this information. It is their lifeblood. They’re true income and wealth is their discretionary multi-million dollar expense accounts, not their meager salaries. Unfortunately, that includes people who are our hero’s… like Ron Paul. He is a great man, well intentioned, but forced to be silent. For he would be excused, muffled, his family threatened, or worse if he were to talk about this information publicly. This is organized crime to the most extreme, so this would be like an inside boss tattling on the mafia. This would be political… and probably physical suicide for Ron Paul and other good men and women in government. So it’s up to the people to expose this information in a grass roots movement and information campaign, so that good men like these can finally step up, speak the truth, and be the patriotic men and women they are meant to be… and to help us to do what’s right.

So… I’m going to be on this full time if possible. I’m going to talk to as many people as I can, regardless of the consequences to our friendship, social, work, or family relationships. I would stand up as David to Goliath at the risk of life and limb to help change this and make Mr. Burien’s dream of eliminating all taxes, downsizing government, and taking back our government and our wealth from private to public ownership once again. This is too important not to talk about. And trust me when I say that if everyone doesn’t start talking about this, and quite soon, it will be too late for any reconciliation or reconstruction of our government to be able to take place. I expect an uphill battle. I expect my well being to be threatened. I expect to be ostracized by media and publishing companies at the expense of my humble dream of being an honest writer, journalist and novelist. I may never work in Hollywood as a professional again. But if I can see this to fruition and effectively change the world infinitely for the better good of mankind, all of this is by far worth any personal cost to myself. It is even worth my life. That’s how sure I am of the riotousness of this cause.

And so I ask you once again. Go to CAFR1.com (http://CAFR1.com) and read all that you can. Support Walter Burien financially if you are able, and by viewing his new documentary that will be online January 10th, 2010.

And get out there and start talking about this. Help change the world, one local venue at a time.

The clock is ticking…

Sincerely and in unity,

Clint Richardson

Property Tax Is Extortion By Your Government


I went to a public hearing the other day about a raise in property taxes, this time by the county instead of the state or city. I had about ten minutes worth of facts and figures to read, but I was required to speak what I wanted to say in only three minutes. This was impossible, and I was enraged that free speech and the redress of grievances to our tyrannical government has been reduced to a circus show where the council would only allow my free speech in three minute segments. That is no longer free speech, but rather a privilege granted by the ruling class to the peasantry.

I just wanted to share with you the opener to my speech, since this seems the only truly free forum in which I can speak!

It went like this:

–Ω–

First, I’d just like to say thank you to the board in keeping the constitutional rights of public assembly and the freedom of speech alive in maintaining these types of public hearings. I keep hope that this right is never taken away from the people in what will always remain a representative government. To that end… you who sit on this panel are the representatives of the people, and simply defined that means that the peoples will is paramount to yours.

Now, I’d like talk about taxes. Specifically in this case… property taxes.

I wonder if anyone can tell me the difference between property taxes and rent?

If I rent an apartment, I have to pay a tax – which is called rent – to stay in that apartment.

Likewise, if I live on my own land, in my own house, I also have to pay rent – which is called a tax – a property tax – to stay on that land and in that house.

So is there any difference between rent and property tax?

Well, as far as I can tell, no there is not.

Let’s qualify this…

If I cease to pay my rent to my landlord for his apartment, the consequences of that action are for the landlord to evict me, with the city and state government’s support, of course. This I understand, for it is not my property for which I am living.

But what about my own land and home… the land that my ancestors might have settled over 200 years ago before a property tax scam was even imagined… heck, before Salt Lake City was even imagined? The home that I might own outright, having paid all debt owed for that land and home? What if I cease to pay my rent (in the form of property taxes) to my landlord (who is the government)? What will happen?

Well, as far as I know, the government will just evict me from my own home who I am the landlord of.

So is this a tax, or is it rent.

Lets go even further and call it for what it really is… extortion. Plain and simple.

For through eminent domain, you can take my property anytime you want. Just like a landlord can sell his property and kick you out of your apartment, anytime he likes.

If you homeowners out there don’t agree with me on this, then I invite you to stop paying your property tax… your “rent” to the government, and see what happens…

A legal tax on the citizenry must be apportioned. But it should also be avoidable. If I don’t want to pay the gas tax, I can choose not to drive. If I don’t want to pay the sales tax, I can barter, trade, or grow my own food (as long as the government with all of their codes allows me to do this).

But, as a homeowner, I cannot avoid this tax, unless I want to move and pay rent to someone else. I must pay it or loose my home. Kinda reminds me of protection money, gangland style… The American dream of owning a home is nothing more than glorified rent, with a false sense of security through “limited” ownership, and the stature attached to that dream.

So who regulates the mafia, when they decide to raise the protection money rates, or the government from raising the rent in the form of property taxes?

This is one I wish I had an answer to, though I don’t.

But if every citizen who shows up to this hearing today has a negative response to this “rent through tax” increase, then the logical conclusion to this hearing is that this increase on an already burdensome tax fund should not be allowed. This would be an example of that representative government I was talking about earlier. Meaning that you, as representatives of the people of your county have been made perfectly aware and clear that this tax increase is unacceptable to the overwhelming majority of the people that you supposedly represent and who responded to this announcement and hearing. Therefore the outcome of this hearing should also be clear, which is a resounding NO NEW TAXES!

Now I can only assume, that if you, as a representative public panel, approve this new unavoidable tax increase, that would mean that you are in fact not representing your constitutes; the people who elected you, and are in fact representing someone, or something else.

I have other pertinent documentation that clearly shows that the money to pay for these improvements and initiatives is quite available through other government means. However, I would ask that someone else in the honorable constituents waiting to speak whom also opposes this increase, to allow me their time to speak on behalf of the citizenry. For I assure you, this is the most important of information. Anyone…?

–Ω–

This is dedicated to the Salt Lake County Council, who is no doubt complicit in the theft and wealth building from its starving taxpayer base, for cutting me off and threatening police interaction if anyone spoke out of line. May you rot in Hell for the ruin you have brought unto this city and collectively through all other governments, this country.

They voted in favor of the tax increase, by the way.

More to come on this government wealth which could eliminate all taxes in future posts…
