Vol. 10 Is. 1


Anthony J. Sanders


There is nothing like a balanced budget to make friends.  Michael Moore, the film director, began sending me his newsletters.  More to the point, economics professor Dr. Soumitra Kumar Mallick, with a PhD from NYU, now in Kolkata, India, wrote, “let Mr. U.S. Presidents Obama and Bush and their work teams be drawn to the concern that controlling deficits should be a systematic context for reigning down (over)expenditure on the external and extra OMB sector. That's my view point from the ROW and also therefore the world” and when asked if he wanted to purchase the rights actually responded, recommending, “May you achieve grand success in your endeavors. Let me suggest that you ask the campaign committees to pay you a contribution for each suggestion you receive and pass-over to them. I give you my specific suggestion”.  So far no one has purchased either the $100 agency rights, nor the $1,000 reselling rights. 


They never have before, but having balanced the budget 2005-2009, inadvertently getting former OMB Director Rob Portman, not only his job with OMB, but his current work at the international trade law firm of Squire, Sanders and Dempsey, who I most humbly bequeathed the new name Portman and Squire this month of March, under the rule against perpetuities and corporate democracy, now in honor of the U.S. consular employees who recently lost their lives in northern Mexico, the U.S. really should learn to invest in rights instead of wrongs under the Berne Convention.  To redress the Acts of God, in Haiti, Chile and Turkey, the victims must be fairly and swiftly compensated for the injury, loss of life and property damage, an Act of Law is in order.    


Not to be dissuaded from doing the right thing, by the totalitarianism of the Democratic and Republican (DR) parties, who must be dissolved to prevent the abuse of power for so long as their torture statute is ultra vires Arts. 2, 4 and 14 of the Convention against Torture, maybe forever, I humbly submit the following balanced federal budget and American political economy for the purchase of the Socialist party.  Senator Bernie Sanders, the only socialist in Congress, who for $1,000, can jokingly claim to the only other independent incumbent, is the work of his “bastard son from a different father and a Jewish mother”, is asked to be the reader. 


Perhaps, now that I have foreclosed on both the Democratic and Republican (DR) parties, and sadly my democratic leaning family of health professionals, Senator Sanders will feel safe to let me move back into the House with him.  If Senator Sanders will just chip in $1,000 for the moving van I will pay the > $1.5 trillion mortgage needed to balance the FY 2011 federal budget and give the Socialist party a National Health Service platform.  There is a Paypal link at the end of the budget document.  Thank your for reading responsibly.  I eagerly await your emails.     


American Political Economy HA-20-3-10


The History of the American Political Economy presents a number of lessons.  The colonial economies were forbidden to establish banks and used tobacco, wampum and other things as money.  Independent under Adam Smith’s Wealth of Nations (1776) the Founding Fathers established a currency, the dollar, and the First Bank of the United States (1789-1811) and a Second Bank of the United States (1816-1834) and financed the government mostly with customs duties.  President Andrew Jackson (1828-1836) paid off the national debt in 1835.  The Panic of 1837 was the first major depression.  The foundation of the Republican Party in 1854 triggered a recession in 1857 they took majority of the House in 1858 and the Presidency in 1860, the South seceded from the Union triggering the bloodiest conflict in national history, the Civil War (1860-1864) during which time an income tax was introduced in 1863 to finance the war effort.  The Progressive era was a time of robber barons and railroads, third parties and high voter participation.  There was a depression in 1893.  There was a recession in 1907 from gold shortage.  The Federal Reserve was established in 1913, when the income tax became law, and the central bank went into operation shortly after the Great War began in 1914.  Prohibition undermined the peacetime economy and in 1929 the stock market crashed and recovered until the 1932 Snoot-Hawley Tariff Act plunged the world into a global depression known as the Great Depression.  Franklin D. Roosevelt set forth the New Deal, the economy recovered and the modern welfare state was born, increasing federal revenues from 3% of the GDP to 20%.  Stabilized by the dual mandate of price stability and maximum employment the baby boomer economy after WWII boomed until the 1970s when the economy was undermined by the DEA and retaliatory oil inflation.  The creation of the Court of International Trade assured increasing inequality and after a recession in 1980-82, the U.S. prospered with trade and budget deficits and a soaring prison population and lame duck saboteur.  After bank failures under Bush Sr. and torturous failing health negotiation Clinton managed to balance the budget and the economy prospered until the American century came to a screeching halt on 9-11.       


Federal Budget in Balance FY 2011: Comparison of Bush and Obama HA-28-2-10


The agency financial reports have been reviewed and the budget deficit can be reigned in to an acceptable 2.8% of GDP in FY 2011 and 1.1% of GDP in FY 2012 but the rights to this Statement must be purchased for the reasonable fee of $1,000 that can be recouped selling $100 cognizance bonds to the agencies.  The $1.4, $1.5 and $1.2 trillion budget deficits of FY 2009-2011 are the largest on record in numerical value and second largest as a percentage of GDP after WWII, not including the costs of the Confederacy during the Civil War.  Tabulating the entire cost of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act in FY 2009 did increase the FY 2009 deficit from $1.4 trillion to $1.6 trillion, 9.8% of GDP to 11.3% of GDP, even higher than the President dared to go, but it did account for the debt that had already been financed and enabled the federal government to make a Recovery from not one but two massively subversive bailout fail outs, the actual cost of FY 2009, never to be born again.  With Recovery Act capital to soften hardship agencies enjoy financial stability under reasonable 1-5% growth rates using 2008 as a base year.  Many agencies did this themselves, other like OPM with no FY 2011 budget, has been over-reported by OMB for years, the Department of Labor has been over-reported during this crisis, not to begrudge much needed unemployment benefits, others like SSA and DHS are limited to OMB appropriation levels.  DOE needs to pay for the Low Income Energy Program to control energy prices. The entire column Defense – Civil is a duplicate of VA benefits.  Congress is punished with 2007 levels of revenue until they produce a deficit less than 3% of GDP.  The social health insurance agenda is censured until its cost would not cause more than a 3% deficit, FY 2012, NHI is okay.  HHS spending growth is limited to an annual 2.5% from 2008 and health industry inflation limited to 3% by law.  The Judiciary and Justice are punished with 1% levels of growth.  The $200 billion annual DoD lending estimate is forfeit to the General Fund and the OCO is terminated at the end of FY 2011 for a DoD budget of $400 billion, world peace and a $214 billion deficit, 1.2% of the GDP, in FY 2012.  An estimated $200 billion TARP proceeds shall be returned in the beginning of FY 2011 when a disciplined administration could enjoy a $427 billion deficit, 2.8% of GDP, not quite enough for social health insurance, but much better off than the year on the books with a $1.067 trillion deficit, 6.9% of GDP despite $200 billion in TARP funds.  In other words, this document can liberate the United States to enjoy the entire second half of the President’s first term in prosperity - the ideal of a balanced budget and world peace.


Freedom of the Press HA-25-1-10


In the earliest of times literacy was a highly restricted and relatively un-prestigious craft limited to the ruling elite in State, bureaucracy, church and trade; but in time literacy expanded and by the 15th century, with the advent of universities, the printing press was invented.  The explosion of literacy caused repressive governments to issue prior restraints on publication so one needed government approval before publishing a work.  The free press is one of the bulwarks of American revolutionary democracy enshrined in the First Amendment freedoms of speech, press and association of 1791 that had to be defended by Thomas Jefferson and James Madison against oppressive party politics. Madison said: "If we advert to the nature of Republican Government, we shall find that the censorial power is in the people over the Government, and not in the Government over the people."  There are linked to this article case of copyright infringement and abuse of the language by the government of great merit.  In the pre-eminent freedom of the press case, New York Times v. Sullivan 1964, Dr. King’s Court held that some kinds of speech and writings, such as obscenity and fighting words are not expression within the protection of the First amendment; freedom to discuss public affairs and public officials however is.  First amendment freedoms of speech and the press are protected by the fourteenth amendment equal protection of the laws against the abridgement of privileges and immunities and deprivation of life, liberty or property.  When a government wishes to restrict a person’s freedom of expression for national security reasons a public trial must be held to describe the wrong that is to be prohibited by law.  While there may be many works of fiction, financed publishers, and fully employed professional journalists who must be guaranteed the freedom of the press, when it comes to suing the government for a redress of grievances, it is the material right of the author to be paid compensation that secures to the State the moral freedom to peaceably assemble. 


Haitian Earthquake Relief: $2.3 billion est. HA-12-1-10


A magnitude-7.0 quake struck Haiti at 4:53 p.m. Tuesday, January 12, 10 miles west of the capital city, Port-au-Prince, which has a population 2 million, with 4 million in the surrounding area.  The death toll was originally estimated at 30,000-50,000 but the most recent count was a disastrous 212,000 and 2 million homeless.  60 percent of building are estimated to be substandard in normal circumstances.   Often referred to as the poorest country in the Western Hemisphere, Haiti is ill-equipped to respond to such a disaster, lacking heavy equipment to move debris and sufficient emergency personnel.  The United Nations, who lost personnel, the United States and numerous international relief organizations have promised relief.  The response to the earthquake in Haiti should be coordinated by the Haitian government that is responsible for compiling the official statistics and damage estimates as well as the regulation, documentation and discipline of relief efforts.  International relief efforts should target those people affected by the earthquake in and around Port-au-Prince.  The initial goal was $2.3 billion for humanitarian assistance and another $10 billion for reconstruction.  The official estimate of the Haitian government is that they will need an estimated $11 billion for reconstruction, mostly for social equalization, construction and environmental protection, more than the GDP.  The international community, particularly the United States, whose Low Income Energy Assistance Program looks particularly culpable for the Acts of God, in Haiti, Chile and Turkey, being in need of transfer to the Department of Energy for domestic energy price control and medical abuse elimination efforts, in combination with the recent panel on climate change decision, need to finance the reconstruction effort in Haiti and to a lesser extent in Chile.  Considering the decades that the $1 billion annual international development assistance obligation to Haiti has been unfulfilled, the U.S. should grant no less than $5 billion to Haiti from the HHS Recovery Act slush fund and offer to loan the remaining $6 billion for Haiti to sell to the international community, put Haiti in the federal budget for $1 billion annually henceforth and offer grants and loans in the $1 billion range to Chile.


Treaty of Peace between the United States of American and Afghanistan HA-5-12-09


Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you.  Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid (John 14:27).  For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder; and his name shall be called wonderful, counselor, the mighty god, the everlasting father, the prince of peace (Isaiah 9:6).  We call him President Osama.  We demand in behalf of the Armed Forces Retirement Home Trust Fund under 24USC(10)§419 that Secretary of State Hillary Clinton render 1/3 of US diplomatic and military operational costs in Afghanistan to the poorest and most innocent people compensated by the Treasury of Afghanistan.  Any US mission in Afghanistan shall be classified as a humanitarian mission.  The Afghan people have suffered thirty years of violence since the overthrow of King Zahir Shah, during the Soviet occupation in the 1980s nearly 2 million people died, the low intensity paramilitary conflict has taken the lives of 30,000 – 50,000 over the past eight years; 1,000 coalition troops.  No matter, the prospective surge or any variation in troop strength, the rate of violent death, injury, disease and property damage in Afghanistan will go down under the nonviolent auspice of a humanitarian mission.  Any result than less violence would constitute a moral failing on the part of the foreign occupying power.  Pakistan shall cede their northern Pashtun region to Afghanistan in exchange for a mountain highway connecting the two nations.  An estimated 96% of Afghans have been victims of war or torture over the past three decades but only 1% has been compensated.  Peace dividends will stimulate the nation to tax the wealthy foreigners and opium producers and compensate the poor for 30 years of constant warfare to create a self-sustaining socio-economy safety net.   


 CHAPTER 4 State Mental Institution Library Education (SMILE)


To amend Chapter 4 St. Elizabeth’s Hospital §161-230, transfer §321-329 from Chapter 9 Hospitalization of the Mentally Ill National Returned from Foreign Countries to §189-194 of this Chapter and change the name of the Substance Abuse Mental Health Service Administration (SAMHSA) to the Social Work Administration (SWA) to administrate a review tribunal of hospitalizations by licensed social workers.  Globally mental illness and psychological disorders stemming from substance abuse are estimated to affect a combined total of 450 million people, 7.3% of the population.  55% of Americans suffered from mental illness at some time in their life and 1 in 5 Americans experience a diagnosable mental disorder in any given year.  In 1997 30,535 people died from suicide in the U.S, it was the 11th leading cause of death in 2000.  Mental illness is the second leading cause of disability, costing disability insurance an estimated $24 billion and medical insurance $65 billion annually, with mental health organizations accounting for around $38 billion in expenditures.  The de-institutionalization movement has been successful in reducing the psychiatric inpatient population by half from 515,572 in 1970 to 198,195 in 1998.  During this time the District of Columbia Mental Health System was successful in reducing the inpatient population of St. Elizabeth’s hospital from 7,000 to 600.  The buildings have been sold to the Department of Homeland Security.  During 1999 there were 1.7 million admissions to inpatient psychiatric treatment, 424,450 of those were involuntary commitments. Civil commitments and judge enforced medication must be prohibited.  The national directive is to close all state mental institutions and private psychiatric hospitals.  An insane asylum is not an asylum it is a persecution.

CHAPTER 6 Judicial Delinquency (JD)


To amend Chapter 6 Freedmen’s Hospital §261-270, fourth draft.  A record 7 million people - or one in every 32 American adults - were behind bars, on probation or on parole by the end of 2005.  Of those, 2.2 million were in prison or jail, an increase of 2.7% over the previous year.  The US prison population quintupled between 1980 and 2004.  In 1980 the US was a model judiciary with 503,586 prisoners (220 per 100,000).   In 2004 the prison population was 2,085,620 (707 per 100,000).  The US prison population is 24% of the 9 million global prisoners.  The US has the most and densest concentration of prisoners in the world with an average of 724 prisoners per 100,000 citizens.  For the US to achieve the legal limit of 250 per 100,000 the total number of local jail, state and federal prison beds must be limited to less than 740,000.  1 million is good goal. Nearly 650,000 people are released from prison to communities each year. There are over 3,200 jails throughout the United States, the vast majority of which are operated by county governments.  Each year, these jails will release in excess of 10,000,000, 3.3% of the population, back into the community.  Nearly two thirds of released State prisoners are expected to be rearrested for a felony or serious misdemeanor within three years after release.  Racial disparities among prisoners persist in the 25-29 age group, 8.1% of black men - about one in 13 – were behind bars, compared with 2.6% of Hispanic men and 1.1% of white men.  Under Section 6 of the Justice of the Peace Amendment to the US Constitution, States shall probate and parole criminal offenders to community correctional housing and equal employment opportunity programs to substantially and sustain ably reduce the prison population to meet international minimum standards of detention.  A Human Rights amendment and a 10 Year Community Based Corrections Equality Plan amendment to Civil Rights statute will help achieve the legal limit…856
