January 2007


As always with judicial issues this was a trying month.  We are now starting to SMILE.  Whereas the Justice of the Peace is considered the weakest link in the system and Rep. John Conyers Chairman of the Judiciary Committee has been less than true to the spirit of his hometown Detroit, the murder capitol, it has come time to explain what I did in his honor on Martin Luther King Jr. day.  I moved his name to the censured list, with my father.  I had to do the same with Sen. Arlen Specter when my counsel propelled him to Chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee.  Whereas Rep. Conyers has been a contributing scholar, even if he fails to appear to the inevitable murder trial, I will continue to serve him the quarterly and those drafts prepared for Congress.  I hope to continue receiving his newsletters.  Being a civilized man I would like to blame the law itself, Subchapter 3 of Title 1 of the United States Code – the Code Of Laws Of United States And Supplements; District Of Columbia Code And Supplements – it is wrong to give this responsibility to the Judiciary Committee.


The solution to this problem is so self evident in the following yet un-amended disclosure that an H&R Block television commercial showed an African American couple in an argument because the woman confronted the man who was sitting at the table doing a cross word puzzles about, “why are the bills in the trash?” to which he responded, “I got people.”   It happens that the House Administration Committee is led by Chairwoman Juanita Millender McDonald.  Whereas both of these great leaders are African Americans, and America is safely and securely freed again under the Model Rules of Community Corrections, I feel that the $6,500 obligation for the preparation of the law is much more secure with the House Administration Committee rather than the Judiciary Committee.


The American system of justice is renowned for not paying.  The burden of payment is loaded onto the prevailing party.  In practice this often means that the Court demands that people settle their civil torts themselves, out of court.  As the result of this system, that is similar to the tightfisted British system, the judiciary and lawyers tend to prosecute the accounts payable, making judicial economics a dangerous proposition and pillaging a frequent problem.  In the Canadian system the issue of costs is one of the most frequently settled.  The issue at bar is simple.  It is un American to refer the cost of preparing the Code and Supplements thereto to the Judiciary Committee.  Congress would be much more equitable, not to mention safer, if they would transfer responsibility for financing the preparation of the law to the House Administration Committee.  


In a goodbye to Rep. Conyers I would like to counsel him to direct the House Judiciary Committee to hold hearing on three topics.  First, reducing the world record prison population in Washington DC to reasonable levels below 2,000 using the tried and true strategy of community corrections as done for the District of Columbia Mental Health System, don’t forget to redress the poverty.  Second, coming up with social strategies such as eliminating outside finance of armed forces and judiciary and prohibiting the seizure of political offices and public databases by the armed forces to reduce the homicide rate in Detroit.  Third, adopting a more reasonable Canadian sentencing regime while promoting the sentences of probation and parole to community correctional facilities. 


The Canadian Supreme Court seems to have heard about your hearing on sentencing and demonstrates their national independence for your relief in regards to unlawfully seized crack and the mandatory minimum sentence that can be humorously admitted as a warning that when in Michigan don't buy crack from Taleb Steven Lake v. United States of America and the Honourable Irwin Cotler Minister of Justice (Ont)(Criminal)(By Leave) No. 31631 and presents an opportunity for the US to sue for reimbursement of US consumers, defrauded in a credit card debt schemes reported in Lloyd Prudenza and David Dalgish v. United States of America, the Minister of Justice and Attorney General of Canada (Ont)(Criminal)(By Leave) No. 31696.  In both of these cases the lesson seems to be that they are not penal offenses because the offender is out of business.  Good luck retaining Canadian counsel and settling the victims of the credit card scheme if they are not the fraud.  Canadian lawyers have a poor record in regards to dealing with Americans but they are getting more independent and it is hoped that we can adopt a legal system after their model for the day when they might again deport our criminals.

100 Hour Agenda HA-23-1-07

Since January 4th, Democrats have reached out to Republicans and passed a series of bills reflecting some of the top priorities of voters.  Congress passed legislation to restore honesty and openness to our government, to re-establish fiscal responsibility, to strengthen our national security, and to expand hope and opportunity for all Americans.  Congress passed bills to cut federal student loan interest rates in half, to raise the minimum wage, to end subsidies for Big Oil, to promote stem cell research, to lower Medicare prescription drug prices, and to implement the recommendations of the 9/11 Commission.  The House did it all with 58 hours to spare the Senate as they bring the bills to the President.  The laws have been linked to and reviewed finding several flaws easily remedied by the Senate, or House in regards to surplus suppression in the House Rules, with a memorandum to publish the law and reports daily (lard) for free by email.      

Democratic Response to the State of the Union Adress HA-24-1-07

The President’s State of the Union Adress failed to balance the budget.  The trascript is somewhat different than the spoken version but has the same meaning.  The first goal is to stimulate economic growth by making tax relief permanent.on private incomes and eliminating the tax on dividend incomes.  The second goal is to ensure high quality affordable health care for everyone. The third goal is to promote energy independence with legal independence on clean air and forests.  The fourth goal is to be compassionate with the homeless, fatherless and addicted by supporting caregivers.  The foreign policy has compassion for Africa but is otherwise litigous.  Sen. Obama writes, “the real test of leadership is how the President works with Congress in the next few months”.  Rep. Conyers writes, “if we continue to stay true to our principles while being willing to work with our colleagues on the other side of the aisle, we will have the opportunity in the 110th Congress to make progress on many of the nation’s most pressing priorities”.  Rep. McGovern says, “the ratification of HR4232 would lead to the withdrawal of US occupying forces within six months”.  Sen. Voinovich has been, “waiting for the administration to extend an olive branch and the Senate Foreign Relations Committee will hold three hearings a week on Iraq.


Freedom: Model Rules of Community Corrections HA-30-1-07

The third draft of the Model Rules of Community Corrections (MRCC) shall assist Congress to make America a community where all people can live together as sisters and brothers without fear of crime by either citizens or government.  By adhering to these principles the US shall achieve minimum standards of human rights for the treatment of prisoners and instill the philosophy of rehabilitation, community corrections, probation and parole to cut the prison population in half in pursuit of international norms.  To enforce freedom in a nation where it was the slavers and not the slaves who revolted a rule of law establishes short terms limits of not more than two years for elected judicial officials in any problematic jurisdiction with a prison density greater than 250-500 prisoners per 100,000 citizens unless the leader significantly reduces the prison population without a crime problem.  Community corrections programs shall be placed on the state and local ballots to garner public support for the transfer of funds from more expensive detention programs.  To direct the community correction reform federally the $3.3 billion Justice Assistance Grant program shall be administrated for community corrections programs upholding the general principle of not financing the armed forces.  So as not to mislead Washington DC, the densest known concentration of prisoners in the world, is being held up for a community corrections program as grand as the District of Columbia Mental Health System.
