Winter Solstice Dissolution of Hospitals & Asylums (HA) Political Party Relating to the Mayan Long Count HA-21-12-12


Done 24 November 2012. The end of the…Mayan Great Calendar occurs on the winter solstice on December 21, 2012.  According to the correlation between the 5,125 year Long Count and Western calendars accepted by the great majority of Maya researchers (known as the Goodman-Martinez-Thompson, or GMT, correlation), this Mayan creation date 4 Ahaw, 8 Kumk’u is equivalent to August 11 (my birthday), 3114 BCE in the proleptic Gregorian calendar we use today. Inspired by the shadow of the serpent descending the Temple of the Sun and sun descending along the edge of the stone box on the roof of el Caracol at the ruins of Chichen Itza during equinox 1994 I have been publishing the Hospitals & Asylums (HA) newsletter yearly, equinox and solstice (yes), without interruption since 2000, online, with another monthly newsletter, since December 2004.  Since three personal acquaintances ran for local political office, without any political party affiliation, and my namesake, Senator Bernie Sanders, is the only independent in Congress, inspired but unsatisfied with the Tea Party and Occupy I am toying with the idea of Hospitals & Asylums Political Party 2013 (HAPPY).  It is an auspicious time for HA.  The Perseid meteors of August 2012, with a peak of around 120-130 meteors per hour, edged out the Leonids of November, with 110-120 meteors per hour, and is the largest meteor shower since 600-700 Geminids fell per hour December 2011. Because the lesson we have to teach the major political parties is dissolution and we want to be nonviolent and healthy, at all times, so the arts might flourish, and social networking remains out of reach (the athletic-scholar), our form of reunion shall be dissolution, for six months of formal study of the Party line (depending on your State), until you may be registered as a HA party candidate with your election board. For the occasion, I have constructed a TARP winter shelter to host a winter solstice party with which to ask the public authority for permission to camp, pay $47 billion for the entire Housing and Urban Development (HUD) budget FY 2013 and retroactively return around $300 billion in repaid TARP loans to the General Fund to sustain the Federal Budget Balanced to Prevent Debt from Exceeding 100% of GDP FY 2012, do justice and serve as temporary party headquarters until the FDA adopts the Center for Alcohol, Tobacco and Marijuana (ATM)..


Book 10 Armed Forces Retirement Home (AFRH)  


To transfer Chapter 1 Navy Hospitals, Army and Navy Hospitals, and Hospital Relief for Seamen and Other §1-40 to Chapter 10 Armed Forces Retirement Home §400-435.  The Armed Forces Retirement Home (AFRH) houses approximately 1,600 veterans at the U.S. Soldiers’ and Airmen’s Home (USSAH in Washington D.C. and the U.S. Naval Home (USNH) in Gulfport, Mississippi.  At an average age of 76, the largest percentage of residents, 80% are WWII veterans, 30% in Korea and 10% in Vietnam.  The average length of stay is 10.6 years.  The Naval Home was established in the Naval Hospitals Act of Feb. 26, 1811 by Paul Hamilton of South Carolina, secretary of the Navy, under President James Madison.  The charter was to provide a permanent asylum for old and disabled naval officers, seamen and Marines.  The Naval Home was however not officially opened until 1834 after James Fillebrown, Secretary of Commissioners of Navy Hospitals appealed his embezzlement conviction to the Supreme Court in 1833, it was known as the Naval Asylum until the name was changed to the Naval Home in 1880.  The Soldier’s Home was established in 1851, as an asylum for old and disabled veterans.  It was at the Soldier’s Home that President Abraham Lincoln wrote the Emancipation Proclamation.  The Soldiers’ Home began admitting airmen in 1917 and officially changed its name to Soldiers’ and Airmen’s Home in 1972.  The Naval Home was initially funded by contributions from the active force. This contribution was augmented by all fines imposed upon persons of the Navy and was the principal source of monies for the Naval Hospital Fund/Pension Fund. The Pension Fund also received all money accruing from the sale of prizes of war. For nearly 100 years these monies funded the Naval Home.  In 1934, the Pension Fund was abolished by Congress and the proceeds were deposited into the U.S. Treasury. From 1935 until 1991, the Naval Home was funded by Navy appropriations. Today, it is funded by monthly withholding from active duty troops, fines and forfeitures, interest off the Trust Fund and resident fees, to incorporate the oldest and newest HA laws; Quiz…1583
