Hospitals & Asylums    





Winter Solstice Issue


Vol. 6 Is. 4


This is the last issue of a difficult and impoverishing year.  It turns out there are two types of people, those who discriminate and the terrorists who are too dumb to fight with words.  I however have high hopes that in 2007 it will be the saints, who get to rob.  The US elections are auspicious, Democrats now control a majority of the Congress with 232 seats to 203 Republican seats, in the Senate there are 48 Democrats and 48 Republicans and 2 Democratic leaning Independents.  This quarter we made great progress understanding the use of the word discrimination that is somewhat interchangeable with the word, disability, in that it applies to all lies and disabilities used for obstructing the achievement of equal rights and that the cause and end result is usually poverty.  A conscientious government that supports people with sound planning and pro-poor policies can make a big difference in equalizing the income gap.  The UN, although the human rights are a great source of knowledge, happens to be as corrupt as the local government, probably because they are chronically picking on someone their own size, and the UN Charter is a model for military dictatorship.         


The US housing bubble burst this year leading to slower economic growth estimated at 2.2% third quarter, although much less than the phenomenal 5.3% growth of the beginning of the year this slowdown should lead to more sustainable development and gives us reason to address our economic problems.  The account deficit was greater than $1 trillion, even with the return of an estimated $150 billion from the war reserve, concealed as revenues, for a budget deficit of $248 billion FY 2006.  The international trade deficit was estimated at $840 billion.  There is hope that the account deficit will be less than $1 trillion in FY 2007.  This is still quite a lot.  Social Security must temporarily limit appropriations to cost comforted by their $2 trillion OASI savings and the Department of Defense must begin reducing appropriations to $365 billion this year, $333 billion in FY 2008 and $300 billion in FY 2009 for a balanced budget.  For the trade deficit to balance liberal economic philosophers are adamant that the US must come to grips with freedom, this is evident in the correlation between the growth in trade deficit and prison population.  We can buy American and work on free trade with the WTO.


Everyone is requested to see that HA is restored to the Google Inc. search engine.  In the beginning of the year Google responded to the request and HA was made the first search engine response.  Everything went great and the number of hits took off exponentially exceeding a thousand a month to a high in April of 8,000 after which time HA was removed without explanation causing a slump to around 3,000 a month.  Google strangely infringed upon the Official Development Atlas in March to declare that their $5-6 billion corporation was equal to the entire ODA that is supposed to be administered to the world’s poorest people but actually goes to pay smooth talking party goers.  When I thought to complain in November they immediately claimed that their market capitalization was $150 billion, the estimated amount of laundered money returned from the war reserve.  It is hoped that the UN General Assembly, not ECOSOC, will take this opportunity to enforce the principles of freedom of information and competition, espoused in the 1st Internet Governance Forum to see that Hospitals & Asylums (HA) is permanently reinstated as the first Google Inc. Page rank response for the search string, Hospitals & Asylums (HA) with the explanation that, “Hospitals & Asylums (HA) advocates for human rights, public health and economics in America and around the world”. 


I. Politics and Annual Amendments

5th Draft of the Constitution of Hospitals & Asylums Non Governmental Economics HA-4-11-06

The fifth CHANGE is the first to incorporate a comprehensive set of economic laws in Art. 4 and history of HA in Art. 1 of the 11 Article Constitution.  This draft is most notable as the conception of Sanders’ Clause, that money spent is money earned.  The amount of money a person spends is directly related to the amount of money they earn.  Spending must not exceed earnings to maintain a balanced budget and stay out of debt.  Trust funds must be cautious of growing so fast that they do not participate in any administration. Taxes return in the form of highways, health and welfare benefits.  Bills and contributions result in improved opportunities for work.  Investment in technology improves productivity.  Money given to charity and pro-poor government leads to more happy people.  Conversely money given to pro-rich and armed governments makes people unhappy.  To keep up the appearance of timeliness firmly established in the first four draft of this Constitution the date given for this draft was 11 November, Armistice Day, although it was actually done 4 November 2006 and after some amendments was finally written as 7-11, US Election Day. 

2006 Congressional Elections HA-7-11-06 

The USA is the best of nations and the worst of nations.  This uncontroversial duality explains the anxiety of the public and parties that agree that CHANGE is needed but are fearful of the worst that the upcoming elections have to offer on Tuesday 7 November 2006.  About 172 million Americans are so far registered to vote; 175 million registered for the 2004 presidential election. A smaller share will cast ballots, in 183,000 voting precincts.  The new HAVA of 2002 regulations regarding a voter database and government ID are now in effect.  33 of the 100 seats in the United States Senate being contested as well as 36 state governorships.  The Senate is currently composed of 55 Republicans, who have been in the majority since 2003, 44 Democrats, and one Democratic-leaning Independent.  To control 51 seats, a majority in the Senate, Democrats would need a net gain of six seats.  There are 17 Democratic and 15 Republican senatorial incumbents contesting their seats.  All of the 435 seats of the House of Represenatives are up for election this year.  Republicans currently hold a 28 seat advantage, and Democrats would need to pick up 15 seats to take control of the House, which has had a Republican majority since 1995.  It remains to be seen if the Democrats will win the majority of the House and Senate. 


Drug Administration HA-15-10-06


It can be estimated that the global market for drugs is roughly $1 trillion with $600 billion in global pharmaceutical drug sales and $400 billion in illicit global drug sales.  Taking into consideration the 6.7 billion world population this reflects a global per capita expenditure for both pharmaceutical and illicit drugs of $150.  In the US, with a population of 300 million and estimated pharmaceutical consumption of $160 and $65 billion of illicit drug consumption the per capita expenditure on drugs can be estimated at $750.  An estimated 10 billion prescriptions filled every year globally, 3.6 billion in the United States.  There were an estimated 180 million consumers of illicit drugs.  To ensure the legitimate medical purpose of drug regulation protects consumers of both pharmaceutical and illicit drugs the drug regulatory agencies of the International Narcotics Control Board and Drug Enforcement Agency must be adopted by their respective health agency, the WHO and DHHS.  A public health understanding of all the aspects of the drug trade, drug use and addiction will make the world population healthier, wealthier and wiser. 


Armed Forces Retirement Home HA-11-11-06


To honor America’s finest soldiers - veterans - this Chapter shall be drafted annually on 11-11, Armistice Day, until 2010 when the new law shall be ready for Congress.   The special agreement between Iraq and the United States of America regarding the Multi National Forces Mandate was distributed on 11 November 2005, Armistice Day.  On that same day Iraq Ambassador Samir Shakir Sumaidaie Permanent Representative to the United Nations delivered a speech to the UN General Assembly when he explained that the Security Council must veto Chapter VII military missions in favor of the pacific settlement of disputes under Chapter VI.  Sir Richard Dannatt, the head of the British Army – America’s most important ally in Iraq - told the British press that the presence of British armed forces in Iraq “exacerbates the security problems” and that they should “get out some time soon.”  On 29 October 2006 Iraq Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki and President Bush agreed to the joint goals of speeding up training of Iraqi soldiers and “handing over security responsibility to the Iraqi government.”  With economic growth at a low of 1.6% this quarter, the trade deficit above $800 billion and budget deficit at $248 billion the US military is set to foreclose on their money laundry to help the nation address its economic woes and those of Afghanistan to rekindle sustainable growth.


Official Report of the Iraq Study Group HA-6-12-06


At the urging of Congress, the United States Institute of Peace is facilitating the bipartisan Iraq Study Group, led by co-chairs James A. Baker, III and Lee H. The Iraq Study Group is comprised of 5 Democrats and 5 Republicans.  Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki has worked closely in consultation with the United States and has put forward the following milestones in the key areas of national reconciliation, security and governance.  The Iraqi government should accelerate assuming responsibility for Iraqi security by increasing the number and quality of Iraqi Army brigades. While this process is under way, and to facilitate it, the United States should significantly increase the number of U.S. military personnel, including combat troops, imbedded in and supporting Iraqi Army units. As these actions proceed, U.S. combat forces could begin to move out of Iraq. US troops could first begin leaving by April 2007 when Iraq should have control of the Army, by September 2007 Iraq should control the provinces and by December 2007 Iraqi security should be self-reliant.  By the first quarter of 2008, subject to unexpected developments in the security situation on the ground, all combat brigades not necessary for force protection could be out of Iraq.


II. Micro-Economics


SSI Claim Summary HA-15-12-06


This five year case history of the SSI petition under Title XVI of the Social Security Act is by no means complete although it provides an accurate description of current benefit payments, particular care is taken to make note of the correct mailing address of the Hearing Office of Disability Adjudication and Review that is different than the regular address of the local office and name of the Chief Administrative Law Judge Francis Molenda that is different than that of Kathy Allen who received the Form HA-501-U5 “Request for a Hearing with an Administrative Law Judge”.  This first appeal for SSI by this beneficiary, in first person, was begun with the filing of Form SSA-7004 “Request for Earnings and Benefits Statement” that was responded to by Linda S. McMahon, Deputy Commissioner for Operations, on September 27, 2006.  The formal petition was filed on October 3, 2006 and denied by Ms. McMahon on October 10, 2006.  Form SSA-561 “Request for Reconsideration” was filed October 23, 2006.  The petition was denied by Robert M. Mendenhall, Field Office Manager, on October 24, 2006.  Form HA-501-U5, “Request for a Rehearing with an Administrative Law Judge” was filed on November 6, 2006 by Kathy Allen pending a 20 day notice to attend a hearing with an Administrative Law Judge.  Subsequently I have cancelled Medicare Part B as reflected in my December benefit payment of $559.50 and the letter written by Annie White, Associate Commission of the Office of Public Inquiry, on December 5, 2006.

Anthony Sanders v. Jo Anne Barnhart, Commissioner of Social Security HA-1-10-6

Application seeking the prevailing wage of exactly $1,000 a month from a combination of $471 a month Disability Insurance, currently received, and a new $529 Supplemental Security Income deposit in the middle of the month. The disability threshold for substantial gainful activity (SGA) is $830 a month.  The petitioner does not make this much therefore SSI is due.  Back pay of $12,000, due on the first of October 2006, should be just sufficient to cover the debts accumulated while in college.  The five years that the petitioner has spent living below the $939 average disability benefit justify this breakthrough in equal rights to a monthly government contribution of exactly $1,000 a month.  This monthly sum that would fully insure the petitioner against the deleterious effects of poverty as is the purpose of SSI and is justified as extra service pay for the clerkship of HA.  By affording their counsel a living wage the US would make great progress towards economic efficiency.

Demolishing Over-the-Rhine Development by 2020 HA-19-12-06


Over-The-Rhine is a community in the Cincinnati river valley that contains the largest collection of 19th century Italianate architecture still standing in the United States. The entire 360 acre district of Over-the-Rhine has been recognized on the National Historic Register since 1983. At one time, nearly 50,000 people lived there, today there are less than 7,500 living in approximately 5,300 housing units.  OTR has over 500 empty buildings, 2500 empty units, and 700 vacant lots slated for demolition but available for repopulation with serious renovation.  The people are generally poor and uneducated with incomes less than a quarter of the Cincinnati average. Two plans to stimulate community development are introduced.  First, setting a timetable whereby all buildings in OTR would be up to code by 2020 giving the City the resolve to begin steadily demolishing condemned buildings and reseeding lots for green space by 2010.  Second, mobilizing the wayward people being herded into jail to work for minimum wage, less room and board, rehabilitating OTR and themselves, while establishing a community corrections program that would cut costs of their corrections cost in half until property sales would make community corrections even less than a fifth the price of jail. 


III. Macro-Economics

The Health of the Economy HA-5-10-06

Real gross domestic product (GDP) increased a respectable 3-1/2 percent from the second quarter of 2005 to the second quarter of 2006, and the unemployment rate fell to 4-3/4 percent. At the same time, however, headline consumer price inflation has been quite high, and an upward movement in core inflation has raised concerns about the persistence in price pressures, a very worrisome development from the point of view of a monetary policy maker.  The economy is expected to grow at a moderate pace for a while, somewhat below the rate of increase of its potential, and then growth will begin to strengthen.  After three years of growth above potential, some slowing was inevitable and desirable. The general health of the US economy demands that regulators come to grips with the account deficit by balancing the budget, taking a more protectionist approach in international trade and supportive role in regards to the rights of their citizens in relation with such phenomenon as health insurance.     


$1 trillion Balanced Account Deficit HA-26-9-06


The US is facing a $1,240 billion account deficit for FY2006.  This is the third year the account deficit is above $1 trillion.  If Congress can levy the forfeiture of $100 billion from defense reserves and $100 billion from the Old Age Survivor Trust Fund in this last week of FY 2006 the budget deficit can be reduced to the manageable amount of $211 billion.  If the US exchanges their foreign assistance for both export credit and debt forgiveness from the UN the US can reduce their account deficit another $66 billion whereas the $33 billion in official development assistance is in such demand that international creditors and exporters will give this money full credit particularly if it is sealed with the first quarterly installment of $3 billion war reparations to Afghanistan.  If the aforementioned reforms are made a total of $266 billion in savings could bring the US permanently below the $1 trillion account deficit level of the past three years this FY2006.  In any case the strategy in this Act gives Congress firm guidance on bettering the President’s trade and budget policies FY2007.  Congress is sought to establish a $1 million fund for reasonable $1,000 payments for research balancing the budget and international trade.


Buy American Goods HA-1-12-06


Merchants, manufacturers and consumers must cooperate to buy and sell American products to slow the growth of the trade deficit from –$829 billion in FY 2006, to no more than $850 billion in FY 2007.  Only when US petroleum reserves and other development projects begin working can we expect the deficit to begin going down.  As a share of U.S. GDP, the trade deficit remained 6.6%.  Liberal economic theory upon which our national economy was founded is reliant upon freedom.  In review of the statistics the trade deficit is directly linked to Nixon’s war on drugs and was aggravated with the passage of every mandatory minimum sentencing law.  Congress must liberate commerce from the judiciary and should subsidize Buy American negotiations, with tax relief, to improve the trade balance without raising prices.  It is hoped that private companies will Buy American of their own accord in fulfillment of their patriotic duty to bring the trade deficit down by investing in import substitution.  Bilateral free trade agreements also have a proven track record for reducing trade deficits towards a balance closer to equality between nations.   Ultimately the trade deficit will be balanced by American respect for freedom.


IV. International Treaties


Poverty Reduction Obligation Under Deliberation, Human Rights Day HA-4-12-06


Human Rights Day is observed by the international community every year on 10 December. It commemorates the day in 1948 the United Nations General Assembly adopted the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. Its formal inception dates from 1950, after the Assembly passed resolution 423 (V) inviting all States and interested organizations to adopt 10 December of each year as Human Rights Day.  In the 2006 the theme is Fighting Poverty:  a matter of obligation, not charity, everyone has the right to a standard of living adequate for the health and well-being of himself and of his family, including food, clothing, housing and medical care and necessary social services, and the right to security in the event of unemployment, sickness, disability, widowhood, old age or other lack of livelihood in circumstances beyond his control.  Wherefore a short treaty was drafted from the Principles and Guidelines for a Human Rights Approach to Poverty Reduction strategies. 

Towards a Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities HA-19-10-06

600 million people in the world are disabled as a consequence of mental, physical or sensory impairment, 80% in developing nations.  
43 million Americans have one or more physical or mental disabilities, and this number is increasing as the population as a whole is 
growing older.  Treating disability involves the prevention of disability, rehabilitation and the realization of the goals of ''full participation'' 
of disabled persons in social life and development, and of ''equality''.  As the result of their special needs and the perception that they are 
vulnerable the disabled tend to suffer from a pattern of discrimination and are frequent victims of abuse and exploitation.  Proper goals 
regarding individuals with disabilities are to assure equality of opportunity, full participation, independent living, and economic self-
sufficiency for such individuals.  When the Ad hoc Committee on a Comprehensive and Integral International Convention on the Protection 
and Promotion of the Rights and Dignity of Persons with Disabilities address the issues of health and social security law effectively, it would 
seem that the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities would be done. 

1st Internet Governance Forum HA-1-11-06

The Internet Engineering Task Force responded to tell me to make reference to Liasion Statement [Inquiry #89845].  The primary issue introduced to the 1st Internet Governance Forum regarded the establishment of a UN Treaty Body to draft a treaty upholding the rights of Internet users and the standards of the world wide web.  Although the Galactic Network information sharing concept was conceived of in 1963 it was not until 1989 that Tim Berners-Lee invented the World Wide Web.  The government advocated at the Forum was the Internet Society (ISOC) and their two agencies the Internet Architecture Board (IAB) and Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF), the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C), the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) and the International Telecommunications Union (ITU). Other organizations are contributing towards deeper understanding of the cultural and practical implications of this global and growing network such as the Internet Society (ISOC), the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO), the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO).  It is hoped an international treaty will make free Internet research more fun and profitable.

Google Inc. v. Hospitals & Asylums HA-24-10-06

This counter notification is brought before Google by Hospitals & Asylums (HA) to redress a grievous case of censoreship without notification in hopes of redressing the HA domain that won first place before plummetting to earth like Icarus and Phaeton after the infringement of the $111 billion “Google” Official Development Atlas of the States of the United Nations (SUN).  HA at should be the first response for that search string, as it was in the beginning of 2006, whereas HA is the only organization dedicated to the name of Hospitals & Asylums (HA) and HA is not engaged in any propaganda for war, espionage or criminal proceedings, of any sort.  In fact the website contains the solar system’s best legitimate plan for peace and liberation of the United States of America in existence and warrants Google’s interest.  Whereas Google Inc. caps lawsuits settling infringement at $1,000 HA seeks the compensation of one Google share, valued at $459.67 on 20 October 2006, in hopes that the non governmental organization and public corporation will work together more harmoniously in the future.  HA is entitled to promotion as the first Google response for the search string “Hospitals & Asylums”, with a caption as follows, “Hospitals & Asylums (HA) advocates for human rights, public health and economics in America and around the world”.
