Hospitals & Asylums    

July 2008


Dear Jury: The HA Statute has been renumbered.  I was paid nearly $50 to participate in a jury last year.  If you are selected to be a jurist and don’t want to miss out on the opportunity to be paid to go to trial, volunteer for the Grand Jury.  Prospective jurists must be informed that the jury has the right to decide both the facts and the law in their decision to render a not guilty verdict.  Judges often intimidate defense attorneys from informing jurors of this power of jury nullification of unjust laws.  We must therefore embark upon a nationwide campaign to educate citizens of the power of jury nullification, so that we will not be liable for attempting to influence a person who has already been selected to the jury pool.  No where else in the world is the jury more popular.  It is high time that a US jury render an educated verdict.  Government was created so that laws would be reviewed and unjust laws abolished by the power of the President, Congress, Judges and ultimately Juries of citizens.  On the power of the people Margaret Mead says,


"Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it's the only thing that ever has."


This election year voters want change.  Both candidates agree.  Change is the way.  Change is good.  It is certainly a low bar.  The grant programs of the current administration are impenetrable, to any but the most diseased forms of biological research.  Liberals promise to revitalize the rejections of the grant administration we stopped receiving after 9-11.  We must demand our individual rights be respected and protected before the administration and committees of a constitutional government, rather than involuntarily subjected to geographical representation without a care to the dangers of persecution, domestic spying, animal laboratory research, foreclosure, malicious prosecutions and identity theft.  


The bar is low.  Neither candidate has purchased rights to the tenth draft of the Constitution of Hospitals & Asylums Non Governmental Economics (CHANGE).  Without evidence of intent to respect and protect the law I am uncertain of their commitment to alms when they promise the US change.  While there is hope for improvement in the federal administration neither candidate has demonstrated the minimum amount of understanding of the rule of law to lead the nation out of its darkest age of Bush and Dick (BaD).  To free our democracy to the bar of internationally recognized human rights, so US citizens could enjoy the equal administration of the law, the following BALLOT is presented by Hospitals & Asylums (HA), for a verdict, to you - the Jurist –




1. Do you ratify the Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court of 19 December 2003 and/or four Optional Protocols to extend the defense of human rights treaty committees to individual US citizens?


a. Optional Protocol to the Convention against Torture and Other Cruel, Inhuman or Degrading Treatment or Punishment of 4 February 2003;

b. Optional Protocol to the Convention on the Elimination of all Discrimination against Women of 22 December 2000;

c. Optional Protocol to the International Covenant on Civil an Political Rights of 23 March 1976 relating to the Human Rights Committee;

d. Second Optional Protocol to the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights aiming at the abolition of the death penalty of 15 December 1989;         


2. Do you ratify three ILO Conventions in exchange for a reduction in the corporate tax rate, reported to be the second highest in the world?


a.       Holidays with Pay Convention (Convention 132) Revised 1970;

b.      Workers with Family Responsibilities (Convention 156) of 1981;

c.       Maternity Protection (Convention 183) of 2000.


3. Do you make the following amendments to liberate foreign policy from xenophobia?


a. Amend Title 22 US Code, Foreign Relations and Intercourse (a-FRaI-d), to just Foreign Relations (FR-ee);

b. Divide the USAID Bureau for Asia and the Near East (ANE) into the Bureaus of, South East Asia (SEA) and the Middle East and Central Asia (MECA), including North Africa and Indonesia;

c. Amend the name of the Court of International Trade (CoITUS) to Customs Court (CCUS or USCC) in;

i. Chapter 11 of Title 28 on the Judiciary on the Organization of the Court of International Trade (CoIT) to Customs Court (CC);

ii. reference to the CoIT in 28USCI(11)§251(a&b), §252, §253(a), §254, §255(a), §257, and §258(a)(1) to CC;

iii. Chapter 55 on Court Officers of CoIT in §871 and §872 to CC;

iv. Chapter 95 on the Jurisdiction and Venue of the COIT in §1581(a-j), §1582, §1583, §1584, and §1585 to CC;

v. Chapter 169 on CoIT Procedure in §2631(a-j), §2632(a-d), §2633(a-c), §2634, §2635(a-d), §2636(a-i), §2637(a-d), §2638, §2639(a&c), §2640(a,b,c&e), §2641(a&b), §2642, §2643(a-d), §2644, §2645(a-c), and §2646 to CC;

vi. Any other reference to CoIT that might be discovered at a later date, such as 18USCV(601)§6001(4) to CC.




Jurists are directed to vote – Yes or No - on these issues and/or sub-issues themselves, and send the results and any reservations to the author and Presidential candidates, for a debate to enlist a Congressional supermajority to override any prior reservations of a Head of State, on these human rights issues of merit to the USA.  The minimum estimated time needed to render an educated verdict is one hour.  How considerate for the newly self constituted Customs Court (CCUS) to issue this injunction in time for the conclusion of the Doha round of WTO talks.  


Human Rights Campaign (HRC), Citizens Commission on Human Rights (CCHR), et al, plaintiffs v. US Presidential Candidates Barack Obama and John McCain whose foreign policies fail Asia and the Near East (ANE), US Congress in defense of Title 22 Foreign Relations and Intercourse (a-FRaI-d) and the Court of International Trade (CoITUS), defendants HA-28-7-08


When it comes to the horrors of war the USA is a whore.  The FR-ee IT theory fails, FR-ee CC, SEA and MECA.  HRC is directed to FR-ee the Customs Court (CC) and Title 22.  CCHR shall counsel the division of the ANE Bureau into the Bureaus for the SEA and MECA. In this brief the plaintiffs request the Court of International Trade (CoITUS) to defend the national morals, public decency and reputation by changing their name to Customs Court (USCC or CCUS).  In their defense the Court is asked to issue an injunction ordering Congress: (1) to amend Title 22 Foreign Relations and Intercourse (a-FRaI-d) to just Foreign Relations (FR-ee), (2) to divide the USAID Bureau for Asia and the Near East (ANE) into the Bureaus of South East Asia (SEA) and the Middle East and Central Asia (MECA) including North Africa and Indonesia, (3) to amend the US Code to reflect the Customs Court (CC), (4) ratify the Rome Statute to the International Criminal Court and four Optional Protocols to human rights conventions (5) ratify three ILO conventions pertaining to paid holidays, maternity, family and sick leave.  Will the voters buy McCain’s Columbian cocaine or Obama’s Afghan opium IV?  McCain was so heroic freeing the Columbian hostages Barack’s lead was reduced from more than 10% to 3% before it recovered to a healthy 9% after Obama’s foreign tour.  49% of respondents believe that the media will assist Obama's campaign, compared to just 14% who say it will help McCain.  It is hoped the Candidates will enjoy a Presidential Candidate Debate at the CoIT courthouse in New York City, in September or October of 2008.  Should CoITUS not feel responsible for the $97,500 fine for indecency this brief will have been a failure and it would be unfair to fine Barack Obama $11,500 for inciting violence in Afghanistan.  The author asks only that the Judges respond in thirty days that they intend to come out of the Closet, for free, sure of their reward in heaven.  Should CoIT insist on perpetuating the bribery system we will be at the mercy of the plaintiffs, who are counseled, like the candidates, not to pay for anything but a Customs Court (CC).


CHAPTER 2 Attorney General Ethics (AGE)


To amend Chapter 2 Soldier’s and Airmen’s Home §41-70, educate the jury to nullify unjust law with a not guilty verdict and pass a Justice of the Peace Amendment to the US Constitution. Fifth draft.  As the number of prisoners exceeds 2.2 million and we struggle to keep the international trade deficit less than $800 billion, it is a time to rededicate us to the ideals that inspired our founders.  As a judicial philosophy Title 24 adheres to the term “Justice of the Peace” that could be realized with name changes in two Courts - Probate Court and the International Court of Justice.  The Court of International Trade of the United States (COITUS) also needs to change their name to US Customs Court (CC) and Title 22 Foreign Relations and Intercourse (a-FRaI-d) to just FR-ee.  Federal judges need to be limited with five-year term limits, with a two-term limit to the Supreme Court.  Our primary goal is to cut the US prison population in half.  Congress must reinvest in halfway houses to get under the legal limit of 250 prisoners per 100,000 citizens.  To regulate the transfer the Justice Assistance Grant must be transferred to probation, parole and community corrections.  $1 trillion is a good estimate of the economic clout of the US legal system. $90 billion for police, $60 billion for corrections, and $42 billion for the judiciary.  In 2001, the majority of the 93 million judicial cases filed, were processed by 15,555 state trial courts operating under the supervision of the county; 13,515 of limited jurisdiction and 2,040 of general jurisdiction, operated by 29,266 judges.  Traffic court is the most frequently filed of all courts, 55.7 million traffic cases filed, roughly half of them were heard in traffic courts because the defendant wished to contest the case or had difficulty paying.  15.8 million cases were filed with the civil division, the highest settlement was a $28 billion tobacco product liability tort. 14.1 million criminal cases were filed.  Domestic Relations and Family Courts processed 5.3 million cases.  2 million criminal cases were filed in Juvenile Courts in 2001.  276,408 cases were filed with the Appellate Courts.
