Legal Reality Newsletter – “America In The Balance” Radio Archives


1 February A.D. 2012

After getting several notes asking about how to listen to these programs “live,” I learned that these are designed more for use as podcasts, and the equivalent, than as live radio programs. So, you get to pick when listening fits best into your schedule.  Each is one hour.

They are good programs for getting into some of the foundational basics.  For that audience, we’ve started at a very good place.

Here is the web page that has links to the programs.

http://www.truthinfocus.org/radio/america_in_the_balance.php

Search that page for “taylor,” and you’ll get to the two programs.  As of this particular moment, they are the first and third links in the list of programs.

We at Legal Reality appreciate the support from “America in the Balance,” and from Amanda, Don, and Keith, the show hosts, and of course, all those who work behind the scenes to make the program possible to provide to their audience.

If this programming is of benefit, they would appreciate hearing that.  The contact information is found on that page, as well.

Legal Reality Newsletter 23 September A. D. 2011


23 September A.D. 2011

Whether there’s a difference between a “driver” and a “traveler” for purposes of these fees, and who has to pay them, is a good question.  Where it’s the equivalent of a fee for initiating an appeal, then there’s the question of whether it’s a “criminal” matter or a “civil” matter.  It’s possible that some systems will charge the defendant in a “criminal” matter costs for initiating appellate processes.

The more “they” want to collect, the greater the incentive to become familiar with the differences between “driving” and “traveling.”

Massachusetts: Supreme Court Approves Charging Innocent Ticket Recipients

Ralph C. Sullivan
The Newspaper

Motorists issued a traffic ticket in Massachusetts will have to pay money to the state whether or not they committed the alleged crime. According to a state supreme court ruling handed down yesterday, fees are to be imposed even on those found completely innocent. The high court saw no injustice in collecting $70 from Ralph C. Sullivan after he successfully fought a $100 ticket for failure to stay within a marked lane.

Bay State drivers given speeding tickets and other moving violations have twenty days either to pay up or make a non-refundable $20 payment to appeal to a clerk-magistrate. After that, further challenge to a district court judge can be had for a non-refundable payment of $50. Sullivan argued that motorists were being forced to pay “fees” not assessed on other types of violations, including drug possession. He argued this was a violation of the Constitution’s Equal Protection clause, but the high court justices found this to be reasonable.

“We conclude that there is a rational basis for requiring those cited for a noncriminal motor vehicle infraction alone to pay a filing fee and not requiring a filing fee for those contesting other types of civil violations,” Justice Ralph D. Gants wrote for the court. “Where the legislature provides greater process that imposes greater demands on the resources of the District Court, it is rational for the legislature to impose filing fees, waivable where a litigant is indigent, to offset part of the additional cost of these judicial proceedings.”

The court insisted that allowing a hearing before a clerk-magistrate instead of an assistant clerk, as well as allowing a de novo hearing before a judge constituted benefits that justified the cost. Last year, the fees for the clerk-magistrate hearings generated $3,678,620 in revenue for the courts. Although Sullivan raised the issue of due process during oral argument, the court would not rule on the merits of that issue.

“I am disappointed that the SJC did not consider my due process argument,” Sullivan told TheNewspaper. “I suppose that some other driver who gets charged with a moving violation will need to consider doing that. At least this decision will give them a blueprint for a focused due process argument.”

Sullivan, an attorney, is not planning on further appeal to the US Supreme Court.

“While the decision did not go my way, I am safe in the knowledge that I gave it my best shot,” Sullivan said. “I took on this case because I felt that it was the right thing to do.”

Unnatural Law: Conclusion


Unnatural Law
                                                                    Conclusion

The summary of the points made and resources give is that the world as we perceive it, is a temporary illusion. Reality is found in result, not in perception.


Unnatural Law: Legality vs. Humanity


                                                           Unnatural Law
                                             Legality vs. Humanity

       Legality and Humanity part company when the demands of a dead thing, a corporation, are given priority over life. At the heart of the matter is the love of money and the lust for power.

Unnatural Law: License vs. Liberty


                                                        Unnatural Law

                                                      License vs. Liberty

      People think that everything is good and right, as long as they can go places and buy things. They never consider what they had to give up for their “freedom”, or who they have to pay protection money to. The liberty that people romanticize about in the American Dream in the corporate structure of the United States, does not exist.


Unnatural Law: Agency vs. Sovereignty


                                                                        Unnatural Law
                                                                Agency or Sovereignty?
     The differences between Agency and Sovereignty affect so many inter-related ares, that it is difficult to avoid incomplete statements. Without establishing who someone is, where they are, what they are, their legal standing and who they are subject to, people get buried in legal apples and oranges. It is too easy for people to get off in the weeds of Uniform Commercial Code, International Law and U. S. Code. People find themselves caught up in being property and agents of the corporation. In those legal minefields, never forget that the objective of Commerce is always Conquest.

Fwd: California Disinvestment Accelerates — voting with one’s feet


     This is another great item from Harmon Taylor. The same activity has been going on in New York State for at least a decade. According to the 2010 Census, both New York City and New York State have lost 1 million in population, the central issue being taxes. States and municipalities can’t hold people prisoner and squeeze them dry.

It works a little bit.  One CAN reduce the insane level of control and “taxation” to a less insane level by geographically relocating.  However, one can terminate that control completely by only one method — terminating the “gotcha agreements.”
One need not relocate to terminate “gotcha agreements” right where one finds himself/herself at the moment one is reading this note.
To relocate is to “vote.”  It’s in the nature of a “veto,” but it is a “vote.”  In this sense, we vote with every commercial transaction we engage.
