October 4, 2014, UPDATE: Real People in the legislature...

     On September 23, 2014, I emailed every member of the Washington state legislature. The email was short and simple:

"You should check out the latest UPDATE to my blog. The blog is coming out from under the radar... 
>>>>blog url<<<< 
Thank you for adhering to your Oath of Office."

    Happily, I received a few responses from the legislature. One of them was particularly good.

Hi Russ,

Thank you for your email. I read your blog, and (albeit I am VERY new here) I can understand both sides. Sometimes legislators feel they have their hands tied during session, and can only sneak little amendments past the majority party. Without people like you to tell us, I’m not sure we would have any idea what to change—it’s easy for us to research policy all day and want to overhaul an entire tax system, but the little policy flaws that create a big problem in the lives of Spokane citizens seem to totally escape us without anyone complaining to us. You’re right—there is a disconnect, but I appreciate you pointing out that [Rep/Sen. *******] lives his life to close that gap.

That said, I always welcome comments, complaints, regrets, remorse…anything! I see that you live in D7, but if you’d ever like to discuss policy, I would love to hear from you! Please feel free to call or email me directly anytime. 
Take care,

      This email from a legislative assistant shows a great deal of information. See? There are a lot of "Real People" out there who want to do the right thing. He/she "understands both sides," but obviously is not firmly convicted upon which side to stand. [He] sees that the $1500.00 in fines imposed are excessive and may violate "freedom of speech," and freedom to work, however, [he] "sees" that the government needs to "protect" the people from "unlicensed" service providers(electricians, contractors). This person is simply a Real Person who wants to do the right thing, but [he] is unable to put the facts together in such a way as to firmly determine what the right thing to do is. [He] has not examined closely what the role of government is, and what consequences will follow when government operates outside the role that is given to it in our state and federal constitutions. How does this person satisfy his desire to do the right thing?
    Well, lacking the foundation and facts surrounding the proper role of government, [he] is likely to base his final decision on his emotions, the desire to believe that government exists to "protect" individuals, or APPEAR to protect individuals. [He] will probably overlook the fact that in their effort to protect individuals, the government has HARMED and INJURED an individual by restricting his liberties and fining him $1500.00 without a speedy trial by jury. Emotion based actions most often lead to contradictions, and most people do not like to acknowledge their contradictions and hypocrisy. When they are pointed out, their pride and ego gets very defensive.
    In my simple case, a contradiction is also easily pointed out in that electrical repairs (and other work) are performed by unlicensed technicians in apartment home maintenance and even government building maintenance. Why aren't government employees in maintenance positions fined $1500.00 for publishing a list of their skills in their resume`s? And the same for apartment maintenance technicians? The simple answer is, sophomoric government employees and self promoting lawmakers do not think things through. They want to be heroes protecting the public without being scrutinized for their nonsense and unworkable unconstitutional legislation. Pointing out this contradiction upsets their view that government exists to protect the public. 
    I like to protect people, too. In fact, I am right now trying to protect people from out of control government employees. However, I am not trying to protect people by basing my thoughts and actions on my emotions, rather I am basing my thoughts and actions on truth, liberty, and love your neighbor in such a way as to not contradict myself. I cannot claim to love my neighbors if I am willing to fine some of my neighbors $1500.00 for publishing a truthful list of their skills and posting them on a private bulletin board. However, many politicians and bureaucrats DO contradict themselves and deceive themselves by rationalizing, "For the protection of the greater public, some individuals must necessarily be punished and oppressed by government regulations and penalties. Regardless of constitutional prohibitions..." Boy, doesn't that sound reasonable and wise!!!??? Well, to most Real People, it does sound wise. BUT, that is not what the proper role of good government is. According to our constitutions, good government maintains liberty and justice for all, and it protects We the People from foreign invasion. Good government does not attempt to protect individuals from each other! I suppose we could put a government employee security guard in every house, and even have one to follow each individual around in order for government to protect the public!!!
    A civilized society does not need tight management and control by bureaucrats and authoritarians, rather a civilized society functions on its ability to morally, honestly, and wisely govern itself with liberty and justice for all. That is what good neighbors who care about these things (love one another) do!!! I care just as much for the individual as I care for the majority. IT IS THE MISGUIDED SMARTER-THAN-EVERYONE-ELSE bureaucrats and politicians who manipulate emotions to distort common sense and common decency for their own power and prestige. And they suck Real People into going along with their nonsense in la-la land! The above email is from a Real Person who is "very new" to his government job. Will [he] be sucked into the control freak "government is the savior" mentality, or will [he] decide to side with our founding fathers who created a constitutional republic that places limits on government in order to maintain liberty and justice for all?

Sometimes legislators feel they have their hands tied during session, and can only sneak little amendments past the majority party. 

Obviously, the legislators are not united on the founding principles espoused by our founding fathers. They do not have a common vision, therefore each one feels helpless to effect positive change in government. This is the predicament of the conservative legislator because the "government is savior" legislators ARE UNITED on their efforts to prove that each of them are "saviors" who deserve the love and respect of We the People. For the "saviors," more government and more taxes will lead to prestige and utopia, and perhaps their name on a government building, too! Lenin, Stalin, ans Hitler had their pictures all over government buildings.  SEE! IT SHOULD BE VERY EASY TO DEFEAT THE "GOVERNMENT IS SAVIOR" CROWD!  But, the conservatives won't stand united on our Supreme Law of the Land, or on liberty and justice for all. Please note that Karl Marx also wanted to use government to create a "workers' paradise." George Washington simply wanted liberty and justice for all...

Without people like you to tell us, I’m not sure we would have any idea what to change—

Most of We the People do not want to deal with government. The less contact with government in their lives, the better. Unfortunately, it takes a pissed off self-educated individual like me to stand up to government abuse. The rest of We the People would prefer to stay out of arguments with government employees. I can't blame them. Arguing with a government employee is the same as arguing with an idiot in an insane asylum--as demonstrated by this blog!

it’s easy for us to research policy all day and want to overhaul an entire tax system

WOW! See??? This person has grand ideas and hope! They WISH they could "overhaul an entire tax system" to get government out of We the Peoples' lives.

but the little policy flaws that create a big problem in the lives of [district] citizens seem to totally escape us without anyone complaining to us. 

Yes, We the People must be squeaky wheels if we want to keep our constitutions, liberty, and justice for all. Basically, big government and big money monopolies are strangling We the People while hording all the resources... Independence is quickly turning into dependence and slavery.

You’re right—there is a disconnect

Oh, you mean that the legislator you work for has not had to deal with Washington State Department of Labor and Industries fining him $1500.00 for posting a truthful flier on a private bulletin board? How can that be? Your legislator posts signs up everywhere during election season WITHOUT GETTING FINED BY WDLI! Our constitutions say that we have equal protection under the law. Seems that I should be able to post truthful signs just the same as your legislator does! THERE IS A DISCONNECT THROUGHOUT ALL OF GOVERNMENT! THE IDIOTS WHO ISSUED MY CITATIONS ARE DISCONNECTED FROM OUR SUPREME LAW OF THE LAND, AND ALL OF THE GOVERNMENT EMPLOYEES I HAVE BEEN DEALING WITH ARE DISCONNECTED FROM OUR SUPREME LAW OF THE LAND, ALTHOUGH MANY MANY OF OUR LOVED ONES HAVE GIVEN LIFE AND LIMB TO PRESERVE OUR CONSTITUTIONS FOR OUR POSTERITY.  Geeze!!! I just can't believe how stupid the people I have been dealing with are... If we had decent government schools churning out wise and responsible Real People (and government employees) who love liberty and justice for all, I would not need to be writing this!
    Anyway, I really appreciate this Real Person who had the courtesy to truthfully respond to my email.
     Would you believe that I got an email response from one of the "government is savior" legislators? I DID!!! Check it out:

Subject: RE: NC RR: Man fined $1500.00 for looking for a job.

Sorry, I haven't seen any set of facts that show a man being fined any amount 
for simply looking for a job.  Can you show me an objective source (a court, an 
agency, something with a file number or some other way to verify it), that tells 
me that some guy is being smacked ONLY for looking for a job?  I will be very 
surprised if you can.  I suspect that if some guy is being punished by a court 
or the police or some government agency, it's for something other than just 
job-hunting.   Given my past experience with right-wing bloggers, I suspect that 
you are trying to turn it into a story of government employees harassing poor 
innocent job-seekers, because that fits in with the story you always seem to 
want us to believe: that government is bad, always inept, wasteful, worthless.  
I think the real story is that for the past 30 years, big business has been 
"re-educating" folks to believe that line, because it results in an erosion of 
public support for state and federal governments.  Those are the levels of 
government that prevent them from polluting the environment, exploiting their 
workers, and such.  All those " government regulations" that protect our air and 
water, that protect working people from being abused and over-worked and 
under-paid by their bosses, all those regulations would be a lot weaker if the 
same folks who are protected by them could be re-educated into fearing them.  
Those regulations cut into their bottom lines, which is the only thing important 
to them.  And that's what we hear from big business, the US Chamber of Commerce, 
the Heritage Foundation.  Seems you buy it, huh?

So don't just tell me your side of this story about this guy who was fined for 
looking for a job and nothing else--show me the actual documents, the record, 
with the guy's name and phone so I can call and verify, and get to the bottom of 
it.

Adam Kline

I am going to dissect this nonsense, but first here is my response to him:

>>>>>>Sen. Kline,
The set of facts you are looking for are included in the Blog. All correspondence from government employees has been uploaded to the blog, including pertinent parts of hearing transcripts. The FINAL ORDER of Administrative Law Judge Mark Kim states: 

"It appears to this tribunal that the penalty in the Appellant's case seems extreme in light of the fact that the Appellant was only seeking minor jobs hoping to earn some extra income. Further, it appears to this tribunal that the legislature has written RCW 18.27.200)1) so broadly that it essentially covers almost every activity of work, some of which might not directly impact the public policy purposes of the statute."

Publishing a list of your skills and posting it on a private bulletin board is protected under our Supreme Laws of the Land, both state and federal constitutions. Get a grip! 

Now that you have what you asked for, bone up on the truth and do the right thing for We the People whom you have taken an Oath of Office to serve under the constraints of our state and federal constitutions. Thank you very much!
Warm Regards, 
Russ Hinds<<<<<<<<

     The first thing I noticed in Adam Kline's email was the bullying tone. In his arrogance, he thinks that he is right and everyone else is wrong. When a weak constitutional legislator is confronted by Adam Kline's diatribe, the weak constitutionalist will shut down the debate because he knows that it will not be productive, and if the debate is pressed, the debate will likely escalate into a heated argument. WELL! THAT IS WHAT ADAM KLINE WANTS! Kline wants the discussion to stop, and stop with his views being the dominant views. See? Rather than serve the public, Adam Kline wants to dominate the public and dominate his constitutionalist small government colleagues.
    Now look, the only way to defeat an out-of-control idiot like Adam Kline is to INSIST that our Supreme Law of the Land is SUPREME. It is supreme because the liberties and rights protected within our state and federal constitutions have been paid for with the blood and sacrifice of our fellow citizens who serve in the armed forces and elsewhere. And this is obviously where our small government representatives have fallen short. They will not unite and stand on our Supreme Law of the Land to guarantee the right to publish a list of your skills, the right to free association (our right to choose whom you may serve and/or who may perform services for you), and our right to a speedy trial by a jury of our good neighbors before our liberties and property can be taken by government employees. Our weak "conservative" small government representatives won't pull their weapon out of its holster. Our forefathers gave us a huge cannon, our Supreme Law of the Land, to stand behind, but the fraidy cats won't stand together behind it. Been that way for 50 years, while the Adam Klines have been allowed to run amuck to grow government and grow taxes with no end in sight!!!
   The first sentence in Adam Kline's email sets forth the "bullying tone:"

Sorry, I haven't seen any set of facts that show a man being fined any amount 
for simply looking for a job.

   Kline starts out by implying that I may be lying in my title and subject line, "Man fined $1500.00 for looking for a job." Yep! He wants me to get on the defensive with shaky knees. He is in control of this discussion, and he will set forth the "truth" and set me straight by pointing out that I am dishonest in my title, "Man fined $1500.00 for Looking for a Job." LOL! ...Kline buddy! You are dishonest in your inference that a member of We the People would contact your office armed with lies and nonsense. IT IS YOUR OFFICE THAT IS FULL OF LIES AND NONSENSE THAT HAS LED TO GOVERNMENT BEING FAR OUTSIDE ITS CONSTITUTIONAL LIMITATIONS! Russ doesn't lie.

 Can you show me an objective source (a court, an agency, something with a file number or some other way to verify it), that tells me that some guy is being smacked ONLY for looking for a job? 

   Here again, Kline is implying that I am distorting the facts of the case. He wants to narrow it down to the actual reason I was fined. Perhaps he can force me to admit that I posted an untruthful flyer, perhaps committed fraud by claiming to have licenses... Kline is fishing for a wobbly spot in my courageous stand. He wants to intimidate me into admitting error on my part, "What was the real reason you were fined?" IDIOT! I was fined for hanging a flyer in a bulletin board in an effort to find a job! CLEAR AND SIMPLE! AND CLEARLY UNLAWFUL AND UNCONSTITUTIONAL FINES IMPOSED.

I will be very surprised if you can.

Be surprised then! Open your closed mind. Dump the idea that government is always right!

I suspect that if some guy is being punished by a court or the police or some government agency, 
it's for something other than just job-hunting.

Yeah buddy, that is what you want to believe! Still on your high horse, huh? Still trying to imply that I am a liar, huh? Good grief! Your "government is god" mentality is failing you. You need to humble yourself and come down to earth, truth, reality, common sense, common decency, and constitutional government. Yeah buddy, your government agenda and your government employees have really overstepped here on this one! And NO! You do not have me shaking in my boots! You are not reducing my statements to mush, rather you are exposing your own superiority complex which clouds your view of reality.

 Given my past experience with right-wing bloggers, I suspect that 
you are trying to turn it into a story of government employees harassing poor 
innocent job-seekers, because that fits in with the story you always seem to 
want us to believe: that government is bad, always inept, wasteful, worthless.

Don't you know your history? Don't you know the truth? Government is bad, especially when people like you hold positions in government. People like you seek to justify everything government does while seeking to expand everything government does. When government is clearly shown to be outside of constitutional restraints, you seek to bury the whistle blower, or the citizen standing up for his constitutionally protected God-given rights. Here is some true history:
George Washington said, "Government is like fire, a dangerous servant and a fearful master." And George Washington is proven to be right in the 20th century. In the 20th century, millions and millions of people have been murdered NOT BY FOREIGN INVASION, but by their own government employees. Government employees trapped in the belief that "government is always right" always go along with orders coming from their "smarter-than-everyone-else" leaders. Uneducated ignorant government employees want to keep "just doing my job to feed my family" issuing $1500.00 fines to people who post innocent fliers on private bulletin boards. And you, Adam Kline, want to protect government employees who disregard our Supreme Law of the Land. You want to justify fining a member of We the People $1500.00 for looking for a job and deny him his right to a speedy trial by a jury of his good neighbors. You, Adam Kline are disregarding your own Oath of Office, and you somehow think you can get away with it by your clever use of words and bullying tactics. You are freaking unstable, man! Have you considered counseling? And, perhaps training in civility and constitutional government? I can see foam dribbling from the corners of your mouth as you attempt to put this "right-wing blogger" to shame.

I think the real story is that for the past 30 years, big business has been 
"re-educating" folks to believe that line, because it results in an erosion of 
public support for state and federal governments.

WOW! What a warped sense of reality you have! "Big business" isn't running the government indoctrination centers, the public schools. Big government has been re-educating the last 3 generations to blindly follow government commands. Public support for state and federal governments is "eroding" because those governments are disregarding our Supreme Law of the Land and expanding beyond reason. In fact, it has expanded so much that bureaucrats and ALL GOVERNMENT EMPLOYEES are not held accountable to our Supreme Law of the Land. Add to that the fact that corruption has infiltrated the huge bureaucracies. The behemoth of state bureaucracies has become unmanageable by We the People and our elected representatives. GOVERNMENT EMPLOYEES LIKE YOURSELF MUST EARN THE RESPECT OF THE PEOPLE YOU ARE SERVING! You don't do that by disregarding your Oath of Office! And you don't earn respect by allowing the bureaucrats and government lawyers to go completely nuts in their misapplication of law.
   Yes, I have grievances with the "big business" monopolies who have taken free market competition out of banking and energy production...

Those are the levels of government that prevent them from polluting the environment, exploiting 
their workers, and such.  All those " government regulations" that protect our air and water, that protect working people from being abused and over-worked and under-paid by their bosses, all 
those regulations would be a lot weaker if the same folks who are protected by them could be 
re-educated into fearing them.

My, my... What an idealized view of yourself you have. You see your role in government as though you are preventing "polluting the environment, exploiting workers, and such." You are even protecting the "working people from being over-worked and under-paid." You think that the world would turn into hell if it wasn't for your government regulations. THAT IS NOT TRUE! The truth is, many business owners care a great deal about their employees and about our environment. Yet, you and your ilk want to treat all business owners as if they want to exploit their employees and destroy the environment. In your mind, everyone and every business owner is guilty until proven innocent. Good grief!  
    Well, America functioned a lot better 100 years ago when when there were much fewer regulations. America came through the industrial revolution in flying colors! Bad business practices were dealt with locally and a huge prosperous middle class came into existence in the 1950s. One parent, the father, could provide for the family--purchase a house, a car, and pay the bills, and even send their children to college. BUT IT HAS BEEN THE EXPANDING GOVERNMENT THAT HAS SUCKED THE LIFE OUT OF THE AMERICAN DREAM. It has been government that has tried to be the father and provider of food (food stamps), shelter (free rent), education (free atrocious government schools), and free healthcare (free abortions for the irresponsible promiscuous). Government has EXPLODED taxation (slavery to the state) in order to pay for all of that! Government rewarding irresponsibility and ignorance with welfare, free rent, free atrocious education, and free healthcare has also led to the destruction of the American Dream. Obviously, those stuck in ignorance and poverty have no incentive to improve and educate themselves if government is going to provide for them. Also, I DO NOT WISH TO BE CONTRIBUTING MY TAX DOLLARS TO KEEPING PEOPLE STUCK IN IGNORANCE AND IRRESPONSIBILITY! It horrifies me to think that my tax dollars are contributing to keeping people ignorant and irresponsible. I DO NOT LIVE IN YOUR LA-LA LAND!
   Too many people like you are running around trying to be saviors of We the People, saving us from your invented boogie men.  You do not need to save the public from me. I am not a boogie man and I am not a danger to the public. If you think I am a danger to the public, then give me my "speedy trial by jury" and get your conviction before you take my liberties and property from me. Your regulations are unconstitutional, and I am calling you out on that. I have had enough of government nonsense and I will look you in the eye and tell you to get out of my face, off my back, and mind your own business!

Those regulations cut into their bottom lines, which is the only thing important 
to them.  And that's what we hear from big business, the US Chamber of Commerce, 
the Heritage Foundation.  Seems you buy it, huh?

   Your regulations do cut into their bottom lines. Your regulations cut into my bottom line and restrict my liberty and rights. I would rather deal with a boss who is unfair and obnoxious, than deal with an out of control government employee who is unfair and obnoxious.
    Thanks to misguided politicians, America has destroyed itself slowly and incrementally starting with the creation of the income tax 100 years ago. In order to collect an income tax, every individual must report their income, rather than only corporations opening their books. Once you give government the power to scrutinize your income, every other abuse of government follows. Silly government employees like you think that you need to "manage incomes and the economy." The personal income tax opens the door for tracking every transaction between every individual in order to collect the income tax. Our constitutionally protected right to privacy has left the building. The free market economy has left the building. Under misguided people like you, the managed and controlled economy has replaced the free market economy.
    Now, I hear people like you complaining about the "underground economy" as if that is something to be feared. The truth is, there is no such thing as an underground economy. There is ONLY the free market economy where people are free to engage in transactions according to their own free will, and the managed economy where people must jump through government hoops and regulations in order to conduct business.
    I would like to return to simple. I want to be responsible for myself and family. I want to provide for my own food, rent, education, and healthcare. I just want to work with my neighbors to generate an income without government interference. I don't want you to enlist my neighbor "employer" to be your tax collector who deprives me of part of my income to give it to you and your government buddies. You and your government buddies have been misusing tax dollars for many decades and I don't want to share in your guilt!
     "The power to tax is the power to destroy," said Daniel Webster and John Marshall. I do not want to participate with you in destroying our once free and good nation. You and others of your mindset who disregard our constitutions have been destroying this nation for decades, slowly and incrementally. And in some evil cases, deliberately in order to reduce America's libertarian freedom loving influence upon the world. You need an epiphany back to supporting our Supreme Law of the Land and "maintaining individual rights." Local governance governs best. America does not need your centralized "control everything" big government impoverishing its own citizens through taxation, regulation, and centralized management. The USSR already tried that!... That is why we need the Heritage Foundation and the Freedom Foundation.

So don't just tell me your side of this story about this guy who was fined for 
looking for a job and nothing else--show me the actual documents, the record, 
with the guy's name and phone so I can call and verify, and get to the bottom of 
it.

Adam Kline

   I did respond to you pointing out that the documents you seek are included in the blog. It is a complete journal of my dealings with people who play child's games trying to convince me that I am a bad neighbor for hanging a flier on a private bulletin board, and who has no constitutionally protected freedom and the right to a speedy trial by jury. You know damn well that I have those rights and freedoms! Therefore, I hope you do "get to the bottom of it" and have that epiphany! Stop trying to bullshit me, and try to get some integrity and honesty for yourself and for the entire legislature!

    So, how will the real person in the first email decide? Will [he] fall on my side or Adam Kline's side? I will email this UPDATE to the entire legislature, also. I really want to thank Adam Kline for providing the opportunity. I hope he is thoroughly embarrassed! Perhaps he may come back to his senses instead of leaving reality in the dirt while seeking to live in his own la-la land. Time for that epiphany Adam! Time to examine your Oath of Office in order to competently serve We the People. Do your job and make the bureaucrats, government lawyers, and judges abide by our Supreme Law of the Land. To do that, you must stop pretending that they are abiding by our Supreme Law of the Land. That way, you can stop pretending to be a statesman for We the People, and become a true statesman who adheres to your Oath of Office and holds government employees to account maintaining individual rights just as our state constitution requires!
    Get a grip! You lose, and I win because I have the simple truth on my side!

EDIT: 
     I just went to Adam Kline's Senate web page to see what this guy looked like. He has an interesting and appalling video on his Senate web page. It was interesting to see that the guy has found a clever way to intimidate his colleagues in the state senate. His mild demeanor also seems to give him some influence with his colleagues. But, judging from his clever words, I would say that he is passive aggressive. Unlike his aggressive email to me, Kline seems to capitalize on his clever words.
Quote from the 1:38 point in the video: "As a consequence, people here(in the state senate) think that it is me who is a little, you know, in your face sometimes, ...pause.. It's the district. It is not me... the 37th is a very progressive... very curious district, very upstanding kind of a place. ..." 
   What I take from those words is this:
     Mr. Kline is not responsible for his votes and the bills he sponsors in the state senate. If his colleagues want to restrain his efforts to expand "progressive" government, they are not dealing with Mr. Kline, rather they are dealing with the entire 37th district. Evidently, Mr Kline's district has asked him to ignore his Oath of Office to support our state and federal constitutions. Evidently, Kline has put himself in a Vulcan mind meld with his entire district, and they have bestowed kingship on him to lead them into battle against the rest of the state's districts.  If a conservative senator attempts to restrain Kline's efforts to "progressively" expand state government, then that conservative senator is not confronting Kline and his irresponsible disregard of our Supreme Law of the Land, rather that conservative senator is confronting the entire 37th district. And that entire district wants to increase taxes and expand government. That district wants to increase taxes on the rest of the state AND it wants to determine how to spend the increased tax moneys collected. Is the 37th district that self centered? Or is Kline deluding himself?
    Mr. Kline, We the People of the state of Washington have not repealed any part of our state and federal constitutions, and we have not thrown out your Oath of Office to support those constitutions.You have taken it upon yourself to join with the "progressive" caucus and join them in disregarding our state and federal constitutions--which obviously you dishonestly took an Oath of Office to support!  Is the 37th district really backing up your dishonesty? Are they as dishonest as you? Does your district really want to siphon off more money from the rest of Washington's We the People and appoint you to determine how to spend that money? Mr. Kline, I think you are deluded. You really need that epiphany to support "liberty and justice for all, and "government is established to maintain individual rights." Government is not established to trample individual rights... Dude, you need to get educated beyond a sophomore in high school and beyond Karl Marx's delusions. Think man, THINK!
    Start out your thinking right here with C.S. Lewis:
Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron’s cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience." 
    Check your conscience Mr. Kline. Respect our individual rights and freedoms as they are protected in our Supreme Law of the Land. I do have a right to publish a list of my skills in an effort to find a job, and I do have a right to a speedy trial by a jury of my good neighbors before government employees can take my liberty and property.... My father and 3 of my sons risked their lives to preserve those rights and liberties by taking an Oath to defend our constitutions from all enemies, foreign and domestic. I cannot bow to your delusions and the delusions of the rest of your "progressive" conspirators.

September 22, 2014, UPDATE: Still learning while still standing...

    Some things just give me pause to think. And when I think, I analyze quite thoroughly attempting to figure out what others are thinking, and how their thoughts make them do what they do or say what they say.
    First, before I tear into the ineptitude of government employees, I do want to thank all of those who have shown me their support, courtesy, and respect. Some have done their best attempting to resolve and correct the problems I have brought to light in this blog. Even, going so far as to write and support legislation to change the "law." (I put "law" in quotes because it is not really law at all. Any law that is abhorrent to the Constitution is "null and void of law" according to Marbury v. Madison.) Their help and support has been very much appreciated. Proof of that is in the fact that I have been reluctant to publish some of the names while publishing correspondence and dialogue. I am going to continue to refrain from publishing names of people who seem to be supporting my efforts, even as I dissect their correspondence in an effort to understand their position on my issues. I must admit that I have a hard time understanding how some people can contradict themselves and the principles which they claim to hold in conversations and correspondence with me. I must wonder if those contradictions are deliberate or subconsciously seeking to avoid controversy and avoid sticking their neck out.
    Throughout my many battles in this life, I have been alone, standing alone while defending myself and common sense and common decency. I am now going to burn my last bridge, if that is how this supporter of mine wants to view this post. This post may prompt this last government employee, who still speaks to me via email, to stop any further communication. I am not desiring to break off communication and friendship, but I cannot control their decisions and actions. If they take offense, it is on them... I am just trying to do my part in educating the public through this blog.  The public needs to know who is holding the reins of government and how they comprehend their duties as legislators, representatives, public servants, etc. I have been standing alone all my life. I don't mind if I am forced to continue doing so...
     After I published the September 8, UPDATE, I sent this Email to my last government employed friend who still speaks to me.

Dear --,
Thanks for responding to my last email. I really appreciate it! I have another UPDATE which I have sent to my Reps. I really want some movement and resolution to my issues. Please know that I am not finished pestering. And there are some other things I can do to try and get attention and exposure. What if I hang another flier on a private bulletin board? What are your government employees going to do to me if I do that? Put me in jail? Is that what government employees want to do to their neighbors who demand that their constitutionally protected God given rights be supported and upheld by government employees? What will it take to get these issues resolved correctly according to our Supreme Law of the Land?
Sincerely, and I am sincere!
Russ

Russ, please keep pestering!

Legislatively, nothing will happen until the next session begins on January 14, 2015.  That seems like a long way away, but, in reality, we don't have a lot of time to prepare bills and strategy for the coming session.

I know I have said this before, but I will say it again.  Legislators don't know what it is like on the other side of the curtain unless you tell them.  A corollary to that is that they probably won't be able to divine the solution to the problem unless you find it for them.

Russ, imagine what our situation SHOULD look like.  Then within that broad spectrum between that and present day reality, pick a few key things that could be changed to move us in that direction.  THOSE are the ideas that can be the foundation for bills that can be introduced in the legislature.  These are incremental changes.  We didn't get this way in just one session and it is not realistic to believe we can take it back in one.

Put your thinking cap on, study the regulations you've become a victim of, come up with a couple ideas that could become bills, and get prepared to testify in Olympia in the event any of those bill get legs under them.

Hope this helps.

Warm regards,
 ---

Notice above that this guy is still stuck on writing and passing a bill in the legislature rather than simply abiding by his Oath of Office to support our Supreme Law of the Land. That really bugs me. And then, he wants me to study the regulations and come up with ideas...??? Didn't we elect our reps to do that and to keep government employees and regulations in compliance with our Supreme Law of the Land? Does this guy mean, "If Russ wants to live in a nation that has state and federal constitutions, then Russ needs to study regulations and come up with ideas???" MY F---ING GOODNESS!!! I don't want to waste my time doing that shit! I just want to live in peace unmolested by government employees! I just want my government employees to stay within the constraints placed on them by our constitutions! These idiots(pretended statesmen) have placed themselves on a never-ending goose chase incessantly writing bills, AND HE JUST ASKED ME TO JOIN THEM RATHER THAN SIMPLY SUPPORT AND UPHOLD OUR SUPREME LAW OF THE LAND???!!! Gee... duh... gee... duh... gee... duh... F***!!! I am not getting on their silly goose chase wagon while they pretend to be our statesmen elected to support our state and federal constitutions!!!     Okay... sigh... I guess these guys don't have all the connections in their brains hooked up correctly. When you are elected to a government office, you are given and Oath of Office to support our state and federal constitutions, right? Okay... sigh... now have you got that connection hooked up in your brain? You do? Really? Okay... Now let's cement it so that it doesn't become disconnected in your next sentence or thought. Government employees are given an Oath of Office because many men and women have given life and limb in defense of the liberties and rights which are protected in our state and federal constitutions. Got it? "Life and limb" you know? LIFE AND LIMB! Our state and federal constitutions must be very important if people are willing to give life and limb for their preservation.... RIGHT? DO YOU GET THAT? Is that connection in your brain complete and cemented? Yes? Geeze... I hope so! Now stop f***ing with me and do your damn job! Get your government employees out of my face, off my back, and let We the People live in peace and freedom like our fore fathers intended we live. You don't need to write a f***ing bill in order to support our Supreme Law of the Land. Good grief!
    So, I wrote him a nice respectful email back:

Subject: Re: NC RR: Man fined $1500.00 for looking for a job.

----, 
Thank you so much for allowing me to continue pestering you. I think you may be the last and only person in Washington state government who is willing to talk to me. 
I'd like to talk to you about perspectives because, after reading your email the first time, something stuck out in it which I kept dwelling on for days. From the perspective that we have state and federal constitutions, I don't think you realized what you were saying to me. Here is the first lines of our Washington state constitution:
ARTICLE I
DECLARATION OF RIGHTS

SECTION 1 POLITICAL POWER. All political power is inherent in the people, and governments derive their just powers from the consent of the governed, and are established to protect and maintain individual rights.

"""GOVERNMENTS ARE ESTABLISHED TO PROTECT AND MAINTAIN INDIVIDUAL RIGHTS."""

----, from your email, my first impression was that you wanted me to do your job for you. (Meaning you want me to protect and maintain individual rights rather than my representatives protecting and maintaining individual rights.) 

----, from my perspective, I have been working for 2 years and 11 months to gather enough evidence, information, and simple clarity in my case so that my reps can take the ball from me and do their job as defined in our state constitution, MAINTAIN INDIVIDUAL RIGHTS. That is what we elect representatives to do. And we have a government divided into three branches in order that if one branch fails in its mission, the other branch(s) are there to check and balance. If the legislature, in a time of panic and urgency, passes unconstitutional legislation, the governor is there to veto it, and the courts are there to declare it unconstitutional. See? This can be applied vice versa as well. If the executive branch is out of line with the constitution, the legislators are there to bring it back into compliance. This is why we have constitutions to protect and maintain individual rights. BUT, WE DON'T HAVE REPS WHO ARE WILLING TO BRING OUR SUPREME LAWS OF THE LAND TO THE FLOOR OF THE LEGISLATURE. Perhaps they don't know how, or they don't have the gonads... 

So, yes, I would love to work with my reps on a serious effort to bring government employees back under our state and federal constitutions. Whether it be by introducing new legislation, testifying before the legislature, or by educating the public and the government employees. However, as you can see from my defense over the span of 3 years, government employees and representatives really don't want little ol' Russ to educate them. I don't have the credentials, the platform, or the common respect of the government employees and representatives. However, our representatives (YOU) are given the credentials by being elected, and given the platform in the office they hold, and given the common respect by being allowed to say their piece on the floor of the legislature and through other means of taxpayer provided communications, resources, and connections. 

See? From my perspective, what more can I do? It feels like I am trying to push wet noodles across a table while the noodles bombard me with excuses and delay, and delay... Obviously, if no one has the courage to stand up for our Supreme Laws of the Land in our government bodies, we won't have a Supreme Law of the Land anymore. 

So. okay. I will propose some legislation and write an introductory speech for the floor of the legislature and write a concluding summary to the proposed legislation. My next e-mail will be that effort.

Please note that I have delivered a thorough ass whoopin to the government employees involved in my case. They know it, and the last thing they want is for people and legislators to pick up my ball and keep running it into complete victory and exposure. They are just people like you and I and they cannot argue with our civic duty to support and uphold our constitutions because much blood and treasure has been given in defense of our liberty and rights protected in those constitutions. All they can do is play their childish games trying to discourage, con, and intimidate me while hoping the whole ridiculous episode remains under the radar. If you and others would contact the players directly and ask the right questions with confidence and courage, you would have them shaking in their boots. Why do we have constitutions if no one is willing to use them and abide by them? However, if some of the players are confident that they can divert you, distract you, and con you, then they will continue their efforts to shut down discussion. 

Which brings me back to this; these people and people like them have been successful for the last 50 years in shutting down discussion of our constitutions and the proper role of government. This is why it has taken so long for them to bring state and federal governments to the out-of-control situation we are currently in. While conservative constitutional reps like yourself have been seeking "incremental changes" the liberals have been scoring touchdown after touchdown with THEIR "incremental changes." We do have a defense and it is in the fact that Americans have given life and limb for the liberty and rights protected in our Supreme Laws of the Land. Government has expanded WAY TOO FAR already. It is time for a correction. I am sure ----- understands what I am saying as he is a veteran who took the oath defend our constitutions from all enemies foreign and domestic. 

Once again, thanks for letting me pester you. And please run this email past -----. I just want to encourage, inspire, and be part of the solution...

Sincerely,
Russ Hinds. 

    See? Wasn't that a nice letter? Well, see if you can decipher what I got in response:

Russ,

No, I don’t want you to do my job for me, or ------'s.  Just do yours.  How’s that?

It was often acknowledged by the Founders that unless the people are knowledgeable of their rights under God and know the content of the Constitution and Declaration, that freedom cannot be maintained.  And that is precisely what has happened in the United States of America.  In our current state of bureaucratic tyranny, most folks are walking around believing they are free!  Yet, and I quote, “All political power is inherent in the people…”.Where the power resides, so does the responsibility.  The government is the servant, not the master.

Like you,  statesmen like -so and so- are in a small minority because the make-up of the legislature is a reflection of the people.  And yes, we have found many of the representatives to be equally as ill-informed as their constituents.

So you have a job in addition to your regular “citizen-job” of insisting upon government staying within the bounds of the state and federal constitutions and demanding unrestricted rights, under God, as outlined in the Constitution.  You have assumed a position of rare insight into this tyranny and that insight must be shared with others.  And I will state again that any peaceful, constitutional remedy will be relatively slow and incremental.

At a private meeting recently, -------- noted that he sees our gains over the last five years as astounding.  Yes,gains.  He travels all over the country speaking.  He has spoken to folks like us in the USA over 300 times in the last two years.  He has a unique perspective as a citizen of ---------who is sounding a warning to the people of America.  We are witnessing a race between the keepers, who wish to slam the door on us, and the people who are beginning to rise up, educate themselves, and take action.

Again,  Rep/Sen. ----- has pushed the envelope in Olympia far beyond what any legislator has in the last thirty years.  He needs more of the people behind his efforts.  You know, as conservatives we find candidates, work hard to get them elected, and when they lose we go home.  And if they win we go home.  Therein lies the problem.  When they say “We are behind you, Mr. Representative.”  Yes.  W-a-a-ay behind him.

Your job is not a big one, Russ, but it is a very important one.  You have the ability to articulate both the problem and the solution. 

You don’t have to go knocking on doors to do that; just be alert to opportunities to share your predicament and encourage others to become fully informed citizens.

Oh, and by the way, government employees, even if they agree with you in principle, have a vested interest in the status quo.  That’s a tough audience that will produce little fruit.

You are part of a big movement, Russ.  Thank you for your contribution.


    Now let me decipher the above email:
No, I don’t want you to do my job for me, or -----’s.  Just do yours.  How’s that?

Okay, that is pretty easily said, but difficult to prove by your other statements and lack of action.

It was often acknowledged by the Founders that unless the people are knowledgeable of their rights under God and know the content of the Constitution and Declaration, that freedom cannot be maintained. 

Not quite right... It was acknowledged by the founders that unless the people maintain wisdom and responsibility based on morality and religion, then unscrupulous men will gain control of government and pervert the constitutions and enslave We the People.  We the People do know our rights under God and preserved in our constitutions. It is the representatives who deceive the public in their election campaigns promising to restrain government, and then after they are elected, they do not restrain government. IT HAS BEEN GOING ON FOR OVER 50 YEARS! Why won't our representatives do what they promise to do in their campaigns and in their Oath of Office? We the people have been trying to vote in competent statesmen, but once they are elected they freeze up with fear and get wobbly legs and go along with the out of control bureaucracies and their pack of deceitful government paid lawyers, etc. Your next sentence supports what I just said.

 In our current state of bureaucratic tyranny,

See? The inmates are running the asylum....

most folks are walking around believing they are free!

Yes, we are free. We have constitutions protecting our rights and freedoms... but we don't have statesmen protecting our constitutions from the bureaucrats and lawyers who pervert the constitutions. By the way, most folks are like me. They simply want to be left alone under a constitutional government. It is a minority of vocal idiots who have sought to misuse government authority for their own self worth, prestige, and delusions. So, when people like you (conservatives who say they support our constitutions) are elected to office, you let the idiots run all over you and you try to play their game by their rules... Your next paragraph supports what I just said above:

And yes, we have found many of the representatives to be equally as ill-informed as their constituents.

Yes, I know. I just said that. Back to this sentence:

Yet, and I quote, “All political power is inherent in the people…”.Where the power resides, so does the responsibility.  The government is the servant, not the master.

Yes, all political power is rooted in the People's God given power, derived from God, and not delegated to government by God. Government has no god given rights. The rights and authority given to government comes from the people AND WE THE PEOPLE WROTE CONSTITUTIONS TO ENUMERATE AND LIMIT THE POWER AND AUTHORITY OF GOVERNMENT! But government employees and reps are not abiding by our Supreme Law of the Land... We the people are abiding by the Supreme Law of the Land, but government employees are not. How do We the People fix that? Huh? ...How? WE ELECT PEOPLE WHO PROMISE TO SUPPORT OUR CONSTITUTIONS TO OFFICE! ...That is how we fix it. BUT WHEN OUR REPS repeatedly and repeatedly ACT DISHONESTLY PREFERRING TO DECEIVE THEMSELVES BY BREAKING THEIR OATH OF OFFICE AFTER WE ELECT THEM, then what can We the People Do? When government employees pretend to be acting within the constraints of the Supreme Law of the Land while they clearly are not...what kind of delusion grips them? How do they do that? I'll tell you how they do that? They do it by HATING PEOPLE LIKE ME WHO BRING UP OUR SUPREME LAW OF THE LAND!!! We used to have laws against treason, the trashing and disregard of our Supreme Law of the Land, but we the people do not have reps, jurists, and attorneys who will hold government employees accountable to their Oath of Office. It is la-la land in the world of government! Nobody has righteous courage and convictions in government! All that government employees have is deception and denial of reality. They even attempt to cast spells on We the People by using deception and propaganda and phony justifications for expanding government. Government employees attempt to cast spells on We the People to blind us and discourage us. Here is proof:

"Naked castings into the constitutional sea do not warrant judicial consideration or discussion"

See? The AAG attempted to cast a spell on me by using that nonsense! Good grief! It didn't work on me, but it did work on the Administrative Law Judge. The government employee fell for it, but We the people didn't. I didn't! As I said in my previous UPDATE, the government employees have spun a web of deceit and trapped themselves in it. They are the ones who need the epiphany back to reality under our constitutions. We the people are in reality! WE THE PEOPLE HAVE NOT VOTED TO THROW AWAY OUR CONSTITUTIONS, BUT OUR GOVERNMENT EMPLOYEES HAVE THROWN IT AWAY ALREADY!!!

Now, you said, "Where the power resides, so does the responsibility." DON'T BLAME WE THE PEOPLE! Blame those who have usurped the power of We the People by disregarding our constitutions. Geeze! Why do I need to write this stuff? Are you under a spell? Once again, it has not been We the People who have written and passed bill after bill after bill that flies in the face of our constitutions. It has been the dishonest representatives who have ignored their Oath of Office and passed bill after bill after bill that grows government miles and miles outside the powers granted to it by We the People. I am starting to wonder if you are one of the dishonest politicians.

"The government is the servant, not the master."
Does the "servant" serve We the People well by disregarding our state and federal constitutions? WHEN ARE THE PEOPLE WE ELECT TO GOVERNMENT OFFICE GOING TO ABIDE BY THEIR OATH OF OFFICE AND COME OUT OF DELUDING THEMSELVES PRETENDING TO BE ABIDING BY OUR CONSTITUTIONS? Please have that epiphany. Please wake up and come out from under the spell cast on your mind. Please open your mind's eye to see the simple truth, and help your associates in government to do the same. We the People are not at fault. And that is proven by the fact that We the People have not repealed our constitutions, our simple and clear contract with government employees.  Rather, government employees have ignored our constitutions... deluded themselves, and trapped themselves in their own la-la land.

So you have a job in addition to your regular “citizen-job” of insisting upon government staying within the bounds of the state and federal constitutions and demanding unrestricted rights, under God, as outlined in the Constitution.  You have assumed a position of rare insight into this tyranny and that insight must be shared with others. 

Yep! I am doing that right now!

And I will state again that any peaceful, constitutional remedy will be relatively slow and incremental.

And it will be even slower if you continue to ignore your Oath of Office which you made to support our state and federal constitutions. IDIOT! ...Pretending to be doing all that can be done to preserve and defend our Supreme Law of the Land. Why do you hamstring yourself by pretending you need a majority to stand with you in support of your Oath of Office? Go get some friends to stand with you if you need them. I'll stand with you, but you gotta get off your ass! It is like "The Emperor Has No Clothes." When the child said it, it was not "incremental." It was huge and almost instantaneous. Just get the gonads to say the simple truth. Just like I am doing!

The rest of the letter does not need to be commented on.
     So, what will I do next? Shall I go hang up another flier and see what happens? Do I write a speech and propose some legislation? Would they take me serious if I did propose legislation? Has this friend unfriended me?
Geeze... why do I have to write this stuff? It is like pushing wet noodles!

September 8, 2014 UPDATE: Brushed off once again...

On August 24, 2014 I sent the following e-mail to my state representatives; not the entire legislature, just my reps.

HOUSE INTERNET E-MAIL DELIVERY SERVICE

TO: My Representative

FROM: Russ Hinds

STREET ADDRESS:
1*** J^^^ Ln
Elk, WA 99009

E-MAIL: c********r@****.com

PHONE: (509) ***-****

SUBJECT: Man fined $1500.00 for looking for a job.

MESSAGE:
Please find for your information and amusement the following link to the latest UPDATE on my blog.:

<<<<BLOG URL>>>>

Also, I am still quite curious about exactly who wrote the current RCWs 19.28.041 and 18.27.200(1)(a).
1. Who wrote the above RCWs?
2. How were the above RCWs recorded into law? Vote of the legislature? Bureaucratic request through the Office of the Code Reviser?
3. When were the above RCWs recorded into law?
4. When was the first $500.00 fine given to a private citizen for posting a flyer on a private bulletin board in an effort to serve their neighbor?

Please don't brush me off. Let us quickly get these issues resolved according to our state and federal constitutions. You may forward this public information request to the Director of Washington Department of Labor and Industries as I am sure he/she has the public records and resources to provide complete answers.
Russ Hinds

RESPONSE REQUESTED: Russ has requested a response to this message.


    I got brushed off. Imagine that! Woweee! This has become so comical in showing how people simply want to avoid dealing with me. I am just an "insignificant" incident in the great mechanizations of government and its great mission to create utopia through government action, taxation, regulation, and control. It is time for Russ to be forgotten so that government can continue down its unrestrained path. ...I did not get a response from my representatives in my district.

     Evidently, the issues I have brought up cannot be dealt with by my representatives. Evidently, it is above their pay grade and they are in over their head when it comes to managing behemoth state government. Individual elected representatives cannot govern constitutionally unless they have a majority standing with them. And little old Russ is just some collateral damage who needs to go away and not interfere with the prestigious essential business of governing in the state of Washington.
    Gee... is there any wonder why there is a great deal of angst among the freedom loving patriots in America? Not only has the federal government gotten completely out of control, but state and local governments have become completely out of control, as well. You can see the angst in We the People by the rise of the Tea Party and by all of the internet documentation about citizens being assaulted by their own government. Just look at all the patriot websites on the internet. You will find an overwhelming amount of news concerning government employees run amuck. It is rare to find a government employee who is mindful of our Supreme Law of the Land. There is a definite lack of education in the government work force. They have not been taught American history, founding fathers, and principles of just, limited, and proper governance in a constitutional republic. However, they are being taught extortion con games and "us against them," in law and code enforcement.
     I am sure that there have been thousands of incidents of government abuse and actions outside constitutional authority in the USA before 1992, but my appalled awareness of it began with Ruby Ridge and Waco during the first 2 years of the Clinton presidency. I was shocked and angered at what I saw on the news. I was working for the National Park Service at the time and I could see the attitude of the government employees surrounding me was pretty much the same as the attitude of the government employees participating in Ruby Ridge and Waco. Following those incidents I could see the same Cover Your Ass cover up going on at Ruby Ridge and Waco, as the cover up going on in my little National Monument where I worked. Government employees cover up and and cover their ass in order that no government employee be held accountable. I saw it then and I still see it today, perhaps worse today. Lies and deception were resorted to by government employees to besmirch their victims and justify atrocious government actions leading to unwarranted deaths which were completely avoidable if not for the escalation of government tactics. There was some government employee in the chain of command who was responsible for escalating the atrocities at Ruby Ridge and Waco, but they were not held accountable.
     Neither can I hold government employees accountable for their actions in my many run-ins with them. The shameful thing is, our elected representatives cannot hold government employees responsible for their unconstitutional actions, either. We have a large segment of government schooled society living in a fog of unreality and therefore we have socialist indoctrinated control freaks(saviors) elected to government offices. Then, on the conservative "small government" side, we have elected representatives who hamstring themselves by believing that they can't change the path and growth of government bureaucracies and power. If they cannot resolve a simple little bitty issue such as mine according to our state and federal constitutions, how in the world are they going to reduce the burden of government on We the People? They have hamstrung themselves by refusing to uphold our Supreme Law of the Land and refusing to adhere to their own Oath of Office. Never mind the fact that good neighbors do their civic duty to uphold and defend our state and federal constitutions.
     Nevertheless, I could not be happier! I have thoroughly figured all this stuff out. I mean everything is plain as day and simple as catching rain in a bucket. As I look back at all of my dealings with Washington state government employees, the humor and hilarity mounts up. The ridiculousness of words cobbled together in correspondence from government employees continues to grow in my mind like filling a balloon. I think the balloon has popped because I almost burst out laughing every time I think of something regarding this dispute over publishing a list of my skills in order to serve my neighbors. Remember this quote from AAG Angela Zurlini? "Naked castings into the constitutional sea do not warrant judicial consideration or discussion." Man, how ridiculous is that?!!! "What the hell is a constitutional sea?" Remember that? And the look on ALJ Mark Kim's face during our hearing... He looked thoroughly confused at times and somewhat torn as to what to do. I could tell that he was trying to find a way for both parties in the dispute to save face. He wanted to reassure me that he was a competent decent guy, while also trying to justify (save the face of the Department of Labor and Industries employees) the 2 citations given to me. In the end, all Kim could do was claim that he did not have the authority to judge whether the citations were constitutional or not. It was "outside the scope of this tribunal's authority." LOL! and I mean LMAO! Evidently, it was outside the scope of every good neighbor's civic duty to uphold and defend our Supreme Law of the Land!
    You see? These guys need that epiphany! They are outside common sense! They are in denial of the obvious! They have spun a web of deceit over the decades and they have trapped themselves in it! In their efforts to grow government and their own prestige and power, government employees have trapped themselves in their own web of deceit. Politicians and bureaucrats have disregarded our Supreme Law of the Land and justified it under false pretenses for so long, that the government employees have forgotten that it is every citizen's simple civic duty to support our state and federal constitutions! They have forgotten their Oath of Office and the fact that fellow citizens in the armed services give life and limb for the preservation of our Supreme Laws of the Land! Absolutely shameful! And, if they are not ashamed, I can do nothing but laugh at their brazen stupidity on display throughout this blog.
    Epiphany time! I mean, how stupid must you be in order to avoid the epiphany? Good grief! See? The hilarity of all of this keeps getting bigger and bigger. And when confronted with reality, my state representatives and the bureaucrats have been reduced to ignoring me. That must be their last resort. Ignore me and wait for the issue to go away, rather than muster an ounce of courage to be a good neighbor who supports and upholds our Supreme Law of the Land. Shameful and hilarious! Man, I could not do what they are doing. I have some dignity and self respect. My goodness! Remember this?


"Thanks for contacting me, Russ. If ever there were a poster child for maddening bureaucracy, it's L&I! They serve neither employers nor injured employees well, at all. Compared to about all other state agencies, L&I has got to be the worst."

    That is from an elected state representative. A helpless state representative who evidently can't hold bureaucrats accountable to supporting and abiding by our Supreme Law of the Land. And what is so significant about my little bitty problem? Why can't they resolve it according to our state and federal constitutions? Why do they choose to ignore such a simple and straightforward little problem like mine? Evidently, if they let me win the dispute according to our constitutions, it puts the whole billion dollar bureaucracy in jeopardy.

   Here... Let me buck up We the People's representatives. There is a very large segment of the population who have been watching the expansion of government over the decades, and watching our representatives cater to the socialist whining and nonsense used to justify more government taxes, power, and control. Many of this large segment of the population have contacted their elected representatives over the last 5 decades to protest the growth and intrusion of government, but their efforts have gone unheeded. Representation, common sense, and truth have been disregarded and overwhelmed by the ever increasing number of educated-beyond-their-intelligence career government employees. And all the rules and procedures enacted into "law" have done nothing but place obstacles into the path of correcting out of control government. State and federal governments have simply become an unmanageable beasts. Elected representatives come and go, but the career bureaucrats remain to protect their power and pretended prestige. The career bureaucrats use the con game and propaganda to keep their expansion going. A citizen representative newly elected to office is overwhelmed by all the rules, procedures, and government lawyers jamming confusion and misdirection down their throat. Bottom line, it is chaos and confusion on display while our Supreme Law of the Land is disregarded.
    Imagine this, "A law, or RCW, is considered constitutional until the courts decide otherwise." See the nonsense in that propaganda? We the People who wrote and ratified our state and federal constitutions do not understand what we wrote and ratified, therefore only judges and lawyers can figure out what our constitutions say and mean. Neither can We the People's representatives understand what our constitutions mean. They must defer to the court, rather than point out unconstitutional laws, rules, regulations, and codes. See the idiocy? It is ridiculous! Yet, our elected representatives are falling for it. This simply is true! IT IS EVERY CITIZEN'S CIVIC DUTY TO SUPPORT OUR STATE AND FEDERAL CONSTITUTIONS. AND THAT INCLUDES WE THE PEOPLE'S REPRESENTATIVES WHO TAKE AN OATH OF OFFICE TO DO JUST THAT!!!! I cannot emphasize it any more than I have, but will I continue to speak to blind, deaf, and dumb walls, or will our representatives and government employees have that epiphany? Abraham Lincoln said it this way, "We the people are the rightful masters of both Congress and the courts, not to overthrow the Constitution but to overthrow the men who pervert the Constitution."
    Now, consider the simplicity of my requests concerning my dispute with government employees:
1. I am requesting that my constitutionally protected God given right to publish a list of my skills be supported, upheld, and uninfringed by government employees.
2. I am requesting that my constitutionally protected God given right to a speedy trial by a jury of my good neighbors be granted before my property and liberties are taken away by government employees.
   How simple and clear is that? It can't get any simpler and clearer, BUT LOOK WHAT A MESS HAS OCCURRED AS A RESULT OF ME PLACING A FLIER ON A PRIVATE BULLETIN BOARD...  It has been two years and eleven months... and I still have no letter retracting the $1500.00 in fines...Hell! The government employees and my representatives won't talk to me anymore. I am given the "silent treatment" like a spoiled child might give their parent! Too hilarious! They ought to be embarrassed and ashamed of themselves...
    Aww... Come on guys! Let's resolve this issue according to our Supreme Law of the Land. You can contact me. I won't bite you. It is a good thing to do your neighborly civic duty to support and defend our Supreme Laws of the Land. It brings joy and a clear conscience knowing that you are doing what is right, even while the deluded government employees resent you doing what is right.
    Hey AAG Angela Zurlini, You know that I am right. You know that your side is wrong. Why don't you contact me and be friends and neighbors on the same side? I love my friends and neighbors who do their civic duty as responsible citizens of these United States.  I won't bite you. I will rejoice that you have come around to serving We the People under the constraints that We the People have placed on government employees through our state and federal constitutions. Angela, I honestly am looking for friends. I am uncomfortable with people choosing to make me their enemy. I am not your enemy, rather I am your neighbor and fellow citizen. You and I are both supposed to be living under Supreme Laws of the Land that protect our God given rights and freedoms. I am willing to stand up and protect your rights and freedoms. Aren't you willing to stand up and protect mine?
    I am serious. I really do wish these people would come down to earth and common sense and common decency to be friends and good neighbors... I still have hope that they won't continue to shamefully ignore me...

August 22, 2014 UPDATE: Insight into the nature of average people and government employees

     Since I have not had anymore communication with government employees, I am lacking topics for discussion on this blog. Seems I have pretty much offended everyone involved in my dispute with Inspectors Phillip Jordan and Michael Thrams. LOL.. It is kind of funny how my government employees are running away from me and the issues I have brought up while defending myself against out of control government employees. They don't want to deal with me because I am right and they are wrong.
    Think about all the "officials" in their "exalted" positions of authority whom I have had contact with. Aren't they glad to have their experience with me put behind them? I am sure they are very glad! I have run my course through their maze of nonsense and I can do nothing more to involve them in the controversial discussion about adhering to their Oath of Office, the oath they took to support the Supreme Law of the Land. It is controversial to them in their mind because they don't want it to be clear and simple. They want to live in the fog where they can falsely claim that their actions are congruent with their Oath of Office.
    I suppose I could file a civil lawsuit against the individuals involved in my case. I could sue them for denying me my constitutionally protected civil rights in a federal court-- which are my right to publish a truthful list of my skills and my right to a speedy trial by a jury of my neighbors. That would cost a lot of money for subpoenas and filing fees and etc. Plus it would be another crap shoot dealing with federal judges and lawyers who are not grounded in common sense and common decency. I would be steered into roadblocks and stonewalls as the government employees do everything possible to discourage me.
     Anyway, my case is finished and filed into the vaults of government records... which most all of those records will never be looked at again... I would be quite surprised if I am contacted by these government employees about this case. I bet that they have figured out that if they don't poke the hornet's nest, they won't get stung. LOL...  They don't like their pretended positions of prestige publicly proven to be out of constitutional restraints. They don't like their crony cliques around the water coolers in government buildings exposed for what they truly are. They want to continue to pretend that everything government employees do is lawful, correct, and good for society because society could not function correctly without themselves being secure in their government jobs. They really are delusional... Government employees must justify their existence by deluding themselves and protecting government and all that government employees do. Trouble is, this "hornet" has simply and clearly forced them to look at reality; their reality of disregarding our Supreme Law of the Land.
    Here are some insights into the nature of man. Obviously, individuals, including government employees, want a positive self image. They want to look at what they are doing as something worthwhile and necessary. No one wants to be told that their job is not necessary, or that it is unconstitutional and a deterrence to a properly functioning civil society. Obviously, my role in this dispute over publishing a list of my skills has been to destroy the government employees delusions of being necessary to the proper function of society. I was put in the position of correcting their errors--which these people simply do not want to acknowledge their errors--their acting outside the constraints of our Supreme Law of the Land.
  The truth is, I am dealing with "individuals," not "government." But, these individuals I am dealing with do not have a foundation built on absolute truth and morality and common sense and common decency. They do not have the heart to follow what is right when wrong is exposed to them front and center! And right between their eyes! They follow something, though. What is it they are following? Government employees simply follow the written dictates of government employees. They follow the Revised Code of Washington, the Administrative Procedures Act, and the Washington Administrative Code.  After 100 years of growing government and bureaucracies, the RCWs, the APA,  and the WAC have become superior to the State and federal constitutions. In fact, they have become the laws of God. They seem to be the only means for government employees to examine their conduct toward their neighbors. If what they do can be said to be "according to law," then they have no other need for anything to guide their conscience and also no need for the Supreme Law of the Land to guide their conscience.
    I have run into this "no conscience" nonsense before. It happened during my unwanted divorce. I was served divorce papers by my wife's lawyer, Mr. D. Gene Fink of Yreka, CA. I had to laugh... "D. Gene Fink," degenerate fink! What parent would name their child that? Good grief! God has a sense of humor! Anyway, I went to the office of D Generate Fink so that I could shake his hand for filing garbage into the Superior Court for the County of Siskiyou. In their filing for the "No Fault" divorce of which I was not-at-fault according even to the "no fault" stipulation, Fink and my wife asked the court for alimony, custody of my sons, child support, and for me to pay her attorney fees. ABSOLUTELY NO CONSCIENCE! WOW! I was young and could not make sense of it. Not even after my hilarious effort to shake the Fink's hand for filing their outrageous demands with the court.
    I entered the Fink's office in Yreka and asked to see the Fink. The receptionist asked if the Fink was my attorney?
   "No, but he is my wife's attorney."
   "What is your name and what is the matter concerning your request to see Mr. Fink?" she said while writing on a memo pad.
   "My name is Russ Hinds and I would like to shake Mr. Fink's hand for having the gall to file garbage with the Superior Court."
   She snapped. Her face took on an ugly scowl. "Mr Fink is in a meeting until this afternoon, and he has another meeting scheduled after that. He is not available."
    "Can I wait here just to shake his hand between his meetings?" I asked while pointing at the comfortable furniture in the waiting area.
    Agitated... "No! You cannot wait here..."
    "Okay, I'll wait outside. Perhaps I can catch him on the way to his car."
    It was about 11:00 AM according to the big red clock on the building across the street from the Fink's office. Conveniently, the pavement for the Finks parking lot was joined with the parking pavement belonging to the Motel 6 next door. I parked just a few yards away from the Fink's office in the motel's parking spaces. I sat on the trunk of my car waiting for the Fink until about 2:00 PM when a motorcycle cop rolled up to me. He approached me on foot and asked what I was doing.
   "Listening to music on the trunk of my car."
   "Why are you here? We had a call from someone claiming that you are harassing them."
   "I am just waiting for Mr. Fink to come out so that I can shake his hand for filing garbage with the Superior court." That began a short conversation about my upcoming divorce and circumstances surrounding it. While we were talking, a nice new Lincoln pulled up with the window being rolled down.
   "Who is that?" I asked the cop.
   "That is Mr. Fink."
   "Oh good! Mr. Fink, I just wanted to shake your hand for having the gall to file garbage with the Superior Court..." I said as I stuck my hand in the window.
    Fink was a little taken aback and said, "It is all according to California law. By law I am not allowed to talk with you because I am working for your wife."
    "Working for my wife? You're not working for my wife. You want me to pay your attorney fees. You are working for me!"
    The cop is standing there with a smile on his face. He had told me of his recent divorce...
    "It is all according to the law..."
    The cop says, "Mr Hinds, you shook his hand. Now you can move on, okay. You need to leave now."
    "Yeah, okay. I'll leave now." That was one of the nicest cops I have ever met. The other cops just want to write revenue tickets.
    So, there you have it. People simply lack a conscience guided by common decency and caring about your neighbor according to a proper definition of justice and right and wrong. Morality and love your neighbor do not exist in "according to the law."
   I have always understood that there is a moral foundation for law and for the correct and just application of law. However, it has now become very brightly obvious to me that government employees and many of my apathetic and ignorant neighbors do not care about morality, justice, and liberty being the foundation upon which law is written. Once a law is recorded into statute, every government employee is free to interpret it and apply it in any fashion that suits them, or benefits them. The moral foundation and proper application and the "intent" of the law is disregarded, distorted, and convoluted to the point that any effort to correct injustice and misapplication results in the very things I have written about in this blog. Government employees ganging up on a little guy who is insisting that the Supreme Law of the Land be upheld, supported , and defended, just as our servicemen and women give life and limb for taking an Oath to defend our constitutions against all enemies foreign and domestic.
    Well, where does a good conscience based in "loving your neighbor as you love yourself," and based in "doing unto others as you would have them do unto you" come from? IT COMES FROM THE AUTHOR AND DEFINER OF LOVE, AND "LOVE YOUR NEIGHBOR!" As I have said before, our Creator desires a society of good neighbors who care about one another, and about justice, morality, liberty, common sense, and common decency.
    Christians who love the words preserved for mankind which define morality, justice, liberty, individual responsibility, and common decency are supposed to be like me. Desiring to treat my family, friends, and neighbors according to God's definitions of goodness and righteousness. There simply is no way I could do what government employees and corrupt lawyers do to their neighbors. I do not fit in with their "system" and their self serving use of "according to the law." If, in order for me to feed my family, I had to issue $1500.00 in fines to people who post truthful fliers on private bulletin boards, then my family would starve. I could not violate my good conscience in order to keep getting a government paycheck. WHICH IS EXACTLY WHAT GOVERNMENT EMPLOYEES LIKE INSP. PHILLIP JORDAN, INSP. MICHEL THRAMS, AND AAG. ANGELA ZURLINI DO.
    Love God first and He will teach you how to love family, friends, and neighbors in justice and liberty and in respect for others. However, the government employees I have been acquainted with in this blog only have respect for the people who give them a paycheck, which is their immediate supervisors and the misguided corrupt bureaucratic chain of command. The minions enforcing the thousands of pages of RCWs simply lack a guiding positive influence upon their lives and their actions. They lack the truth of scripture, therefore they lack the ability to determine what is right and what is wrong according to the Words of our Creator. Therefore, their bible is "according to the law," the convoluted and twisted laws of men.
   As for me, I would prefer to live in a society where love your neighbor, where justice, where liberty, where our constitution and common decency are enforced. America has left 3 or 4 generations behind. They know no other authority than the authority of "government." "Government" and "self" are the only things that can control the actions of people who do not know the Truth and who must choose between feeding their family with a government paycheck while going along with injustice, or getting ostracized and fired for refusing to issue unconstitutional fines.
   I could not be a government school teacher, either. I would not teach lies and error to my neighbors' children. I could not exclude God and right and wrong from my classroom. I could not leave generations of children behind, and ignorant of the simple loving truth of their Creator.
    America used to be a Christian nation with Christian institutions of higher learning and with Biblical foundations of law, moral foundations of law.  Our American history proves that fact, even though America has never been perfect. But, the deliberate dumbing down of generation after generation in the government schools has forced me to deal with idiots all the way through this blog, from the inspectors, to the Washington State Supreme Court, to the governor's office, to some of the legislators...   Is there any hope of turning America around?
   Nope... not until America's fathers, mothers, and pastors take back their role to love, lead, teach, take care of, and protect their children from the government schools... thus NOT LEAVING GENERATION AFTER GENERATION IGNORANT OF THE TRUTH PRESERVED FOR MANKIND, THE GOLDEN RULES OF A LOVING AND CIVILIZED SOCIETY.
    America is declining and will not turn around until, "He will turn the hearts of the fathers to their children, and the hearts of the children to their fathers; or else I (the Lord) will come and strike the land with a curse." Malachi 4:6. 

Hmmm.. it is interesting to me how my heart has always been with my children, and I have always desired to love, lead, teach, take care of, and protect my children, but idiot government employees gave their blessing and your tax dollars to a selfish mother who thought the barstool social life was more important than loving, leading, teaching, taking care of, and protecting her children. I was prevented from being the father that my Creator designed me to be. I did the best I could. I even stood against the injustice of idiot government employees, but I was alone.
   I'd like an apology. Perhaps if America's fathers and mothers would start training their children in the love of God's truth and His definitions of goodness and evil, perhaps they would apologize for raising up generation after generation of idiots to fill positions of government authority who reward the guilty and punish the innocent... Perhaps my children and their mother would come to know and love the Truth, too.
   Seems to me America is at a crossroad. Turn to love of God and neighbor, or continue to leave generation after generation behind.

“Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, Religion and Morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim the tribute of Patriotism, who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness, these firmest props of the duties of Men and Citizens. The mere Politician, equally with the pious man, ought to respect and to cherish them. A volume could not trace all their connections with private and public felicity...And let us with caution indulge the supposition that morality can be maintained without religion. Whatever may be conceded to the influence of refined education on minds of peculiar structure, reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principle.”
President George Washington.

    Insight into the nature of average people and government employees leads me to believe that government employees will continue to follow the dictates of government while enslaving the average people to pay their salaries. Government employees are not going to oppose unconstitutional directives and risk losing their government paycheck.
    Seems also like the average Christian men and churches will not turn around and stop leaving generation after generation behind until the curse on the land becomes unbearable.
     Thank your pastor and teacher. Thank your watchman, and thank your shepherd in the pulpit. Sarcasm! They have not the courage to say what I say. Let God be my judge, and let Him decide if my words are correct. And let the reader take heed and find the truth for himself, just like I have been forced to do. In other words, I did not ask to be put in this position and say the things that I say. All I wanted was a happy wholesome family, a decent job, and my own home... I did not expect to be put through all of my crazy adventures. What a mess living in a society that does not know right from wrong, justice from injustice, and cares nothing about either one...
   But, perhaps "It is all according to law." Good grief! Try to win an argument with an idiot! I have won the argument about government employees being outside constitutional restraints, but the end result is that it does not matter a whit to them. Perhaps this wise proverb applies to government employees who know only that the government is taking care of them:

"Though you grind a fool in a mortar and pestle as someone might crush grain, his stupidity still won't leave him." Proverbs 27:22
     I have crushed government nonsense with the simple truth, like a hammer. Yet their stupidity won't leave them.

     There is another way. Learn and do the right things according to the definitions of your Creator, and He will take care of you, and He will be your God. Government is not and cannot be god... but if you are stupid enough to follow the commands of government many atrocities are likely to occur. Just like they occurred under dictators like Hitler, Lenin, Stalin, Pol Pot, Mao Ze Dung, etc.

EDIT August 23, 2014: I just came across this picture on the web. I love it when people see what I see...
