April 18, 2015, UPDATE: No progress...

    So, after I received the return receipt for my COMPLAINT mailed to US Attorney Mike Ormsby, I made a follow up call to his office. I opened this call with a question, "How do I get a complaint sworn into the record so that an investigation can be started?"
   "We don't take complaints from individuals. You need to contact an agency. We only take complaints from agencies."
    "Well, what agency do I need to contact?"
    "The FBI."
    Hmmm... seems I went through this before. Like last month. So, I look up the phone number for the local FBI office. I call it, and that number takes me to some idiot in or near Washington DC. After explaining the nature of my complaint based on 18 USC 242 and 241, the guy says that I had already called on this back on March 12. He says I need to get an attorney and deal with it at the local level.
    Do you believe this? I didn't want to believe it. However, rather than government employees upholding our Supreme Law of the Land, I am diverted and ignored. I am simply not permitted to submit my COMPLAINT to the appropriate authorities who are supposed to be upholding the "rule of law," the Supreme Law of the Land. These guys just cut me off at the pass and refuse to respond to my COMPLAINT with a simple letter explaining what I need to do. They put up a stone wall. These guys are not good neighbors who do their civic duty to uphold our Supreme Laws of the Land. How do they do that? I could not do that. I am guilty of assuming that my government employees are of the same mind I am. After all, I pay my taxes for their salaries to serve We the People.
   It is gone! The delusion of trustworthy government employees is completely gone. I can no longer give the benefit of the doubt to any government employee hoping that they have a conscience that leans toward doing their Civic Duty to uphold our state and federal constitutions. It is as if I am up against a completely corrupt criminal machine. Every door to justice and liberty is blocked. They have blocked all the doors in order to never admit that government employees are wrong and make mistakes. It is obvious that government employees are going to do what they are going to do, regardless of our state and federal constitutions.
    The only way to change this is for the public to become informed and demand change back to our Supreme Laws of the Land. And, it has always been the purpose of this blog to inform the public. I won the argument fully. I won the argument clearly and simply on this blog. They know it, and that is why they won't talk to me. They are afraid. They are the worst kind of vindictive cowards as demonstrated by them hiring a collection agency to come after me. From the beginning, they would not approach me face to face, and now they hide.
    When I informed the collection agency of my dispute, they investigated by inquiring of WDLI. WDLI provided some information to the collection agency and the collection agency forwarded a copy to me. WDLI makes this statement in writing to the collection agency, "We have been instructed not to respond to him any longer unless he has an actual question." The government employees are told not to talk to me! How crazy is that? Unbelievable!
    What world do these people live in? Questions about our Supreme Laws of the Land are not "actual questions?" It is a pretty sick world we are living in... mindless people... unthinking people... unloving and uncaring people...

    Well, it has been quite an education for me! I have no more illusions about the state of our nation and states.  Pretty sad... shame, shame, shame on government employees! Oh... and remember that I mentioned early on in this blog that we need legislation requiring every government employee to go through training on the constitution and the history of this nation?  Yep! They need that, but they need to be taught how to be good neighbors, too.  Can't be a good neighbor living in a world of lies, denial, and nonsense!

  1. a stupid person.

    After all this time, I was unable to find any government employees willing to uphold our state and federal constitutions. Let this blog be the decisive proof...
    Your government employees live in la-la land and are incapable of doing the right things and the honest neighborly things. They cannot be trusted from top to bottom, from Obama down to the little bitty inspector. It is likely all hell is going to break loose pretty soon. Things get real ugly when people prefer to believe nonsense, lies, and their own invented rationalizations based on the lies and nonsense they choose to believe. What a mess...
   Who is the father of lies and nonsense?
   Who is the Author of truth, righteousness, and justice?
   Government employees are under the spell of lies and nonsense. That is the only conclusion I can arrive at.

Proverbs 16:4 The LORD works out everything to its proper end-- even the wicked for a day of disaster.

April 11, 2015, UPDATE: The Maze of Proper Procedure...

   I have waited until now to UPDATE this blog because I wanted to do it after I got my COMPLAINT officially acknowledged and filed within the system. That has not occurred yet. I followed up my certified return receipt mailing to the US District Court with many phone calls. One lady was forthcoming and trying to pass on my COMPLAINT to the US ATTORNEY Mike Ormsby because it is proper procedure for the US Attorney to initiate COMPLAINTS with the court. It is not normal for citizens to initiate complaints. I wonder if there is a written procedure for citizens to initiate CRIMINAL COMPLAINTS which is discouraged by government employees because they do not want the public to be able to enforce the US Code against out of control government employees? You know, the "establishment" wants to maintain their control of all the procedures, rather than open up the process to the general public whom they are supposed to be serving under the direction and constraints of our Supreme Laws of the Land.
    I remailed a signed copy of my complaint directly to the US Attorney Mike Ormsby via certified return receipt. I had to do this because his office would not return my phone calls. Seems these people do not want to address my concerns. Perhaps this blog scares them away. If they are doing the right thing, why should they be afraid of this blog? They should not be afraid of it. They should embrace it and uphold and defend our Supreme Laws of the Land. That is where a clear and courageous conscience comes from, but people of weak character do not have the courage to make waves within their corrupt system. That is the fact, and the only correct assumption I can make after failing to make contact with someone who is reviewing my COMPLAINT in the US Attorney's Office.
    I will continue my efforts. Will the government employees continue to embarrass themselves? I hope not. I hope that they overcome their fear and disdain for our state and federal constitutions. I really hope they find the courage to openly discuss the issues with me and work with me to correct out of control government employees. All of this mess can probably be found at its root to be the fault of a single idiot bureaucrat or government paid lawyer who wrongly assumed administrative law applied to the general public in a fashion that violated our Bill of Rights. Once they got away with their misapplication of administrative law, they continued to defend it by putting objectors like me through their burdensome bureaucratic maze of nonsense to prevent constitutionalists like me from correcting the abusive policing for profit scheme.
     People of weak character gravitate toward government for their own security. Real statesmen do serve We the People by finding the joy of maintaining the individual rights and liberties pretected in our state and federal constitutions. We shall see who are the real statesmen, and who are weak characters warming chairs in government offices working to protect their own little kingdoms, and protect the little kingdoms of their associates in government. I know about the water cooler culture in government buildings. I used to work for the government. I know how they hunger for accolades and how they pat each other on the back even for doing unconstitutional things "for the good of the people." They love finding excuses for justifying laws and regulations which infringe on our Bill of Rights. Government employees like I was are not welcome around the water coolers in government buildings. In fact, government employees like I was scare the pants off the weak characters who seek accolades to build up their weak self esteem and phony prestige. When I would approach the water cooler in my government job, everyone else would run away from me...  Seems the truth I spoke hurt their self esteem. They didn't like the simple truth...
    Here is a copy of the the cover letter I sent with the copy of my COMPLAINT to the US Attorney's Office:

April 10, 2015

TO: U.S. Attorney Mike Ormsby
United States Attorneys Office
P.O. Box 1494
Spokane, WA 99210-1494
(509) 353-2767

FROM: Russ Hinds
10421 E Jutte Ln
Elk, WA 99009

SUBJECT: COMPLAINT seeking enforcement of 18 USC 242 and 241

Mr. Ormsby,
On March 25, 2015, I mailed a complaint to the office of Magistrate John T. Rodgers' office with the intention of getting my complaint officially sworn into the record so that an investigation may be initiated and a grand jury put in place in order to indict the ACCUSED who are cited in my COMPLAINT.
On March 31, 2015, I followed up my certified return receipt mailing with a phone call to the magistrate's office. I was directed to Rene Grogan, who told me that complaints were normally initiated by your office. Mrs. Grogan informed me that she would deliver my COMPLAINT to your office.
On April 3, 2015, I left 3 voicemail messages with your assistant (Arne somebody?), but never received a return phone call.
On April 8, 2015, I contacted your office 2 more times leaving voicemails, and I contacted Rene Grogan again. Rene said that she had indeed delivered my complaint to your office and that she would inquire of its status. She followed up with a phone call informing me that one of the Assistant US Attorneys was investigating my COMPLAINT and that they had been in contact with me. ??? That was incorrect. I still do not have a contact in your office.
Please provide me with a contact person through whom I may be kept informed of the status of my COMPLAINT.
Please let me remind my public servants of the wisdom of our Founding Fathers. Our Founding Fathers understood that it was a joy to maintain individual rights and liberties. They found their joy in protecting those rights and liberties in our state and federal constitutions. They even wrote a Bill of Rights for our U.S. Constitution in order that future government employees may find the joy of maintaining the freedom of the press, the right to bear arms, and the right to a trial by jury of good neighbors.
Unfortunately, I have suffered through over 3 years of arguing with government employees who find some perverted joy in accusing me of being a bad neighbor in order to justify fining me $1500.00 for hanging a flier on a private bulletin board. Good neighbors don't do those things, and good neighbors do not deny their neighbor the right to a trial by jury before taking their constitutionally protected rights, liberties, and property away. Let's you and I be good neighbors and educate these misled and out of control government employees so that they may also find the joy of maintaining individual rights and liberties which have been purchased by the life, limb, and treasure given by those who take an Oath to protect our constitutions from all enemies foreign and domestic. Please contact me so that we may do our civic duty together, and let us not ignore our civic duty.

COMPLAINT enclosed.

There is no shame in doing your Civic Duty. Hopefully, next week Mike Ormsby will return my call. We shall see!

March 26, 2015, UPDATE: Signed COMPLAINT in Federal Court

I have placed the ball back into the government employees' court. You know that I cannot force government employees to do anything. They must figure out what is the right thing to do in their own conscience. How are they going to treat their neighbors? How are they going to treat our state and federal constitutions? How are they going to respect the life limb, and treasure that has been sacrificed to preserve our Supreme Laws of the Land? Russ cannot tell them what to do. All I can do is educate them and give them the opportunity to do the right thing. Can Russ order a TSA employee to not place his hands between the legs of that 10 year old little girl or boy? Nope! They do what they do according to their own conscience. And if their knowledge is lacking, and if their fear of losing their jobs (emotions) are dictating their actions, and if the ego thrives on their official authority over their neighbors, little ol' Russ is going to have little effect on what they do. ONLY THE SIMPLE TRUTH GIVEN TO THEM CAN CHANGE THEIR ACTIONS. The simple truth is the only weapon I have. This is what filing a complaint in US District Court is about. It is about presenting the simple truth to those who have been too long denying the simple truth and living in their own world of lies, nonsense, and unfounded fears...
Here is my COMPLAINT:

and any other individuals found to be aiding and abetting in the Deprivation of Rights Under the Color of Law in the COMPLAINANT's Written Statement of the Essential Facts, and the resulting investigation/discovery,


Whereas the people of the great state of Washington entered the union of the United States under the terms of the Constitution of the United States of America;

Whereas the terms of the U.S. Constitution require the people of the state of Washington to openly declare the U.S Constitution to be the Supreme Law of the Land in the State of Washington's Constitution;

Whereas the U.S. Constitution protects the liberties and rights of individuals residing within the borders of the 50 states by the Articles in the U.S. Constitution's Bill of Rights;

Whereas any state law, statute, ordinance, regulation, or custom shall not violate, pervert, or infringe on the liberties and rights protected within the U.S. Constitution and Bill of Rights without first amending the Constitution and the Bill of Rights;

Whereas the Representatives of the States in Congress determined it necessary to codify and assess penalties on individuals of weak and corrupt character in any state government who have abused their position of authority by the deprivation of any rights, privileges, or immunities secured or protected by the Constitution [and Bill of Rights] or laws of the United States in 18 USC 241 and 242;
[Historical note: As the U.S.A. expanded admitting new states from east coast to west coast, there were men of corrupt character capable of attaining high office in the newly formed governments of the newly admitted states of the union, or capable of buying off men of weak character in the newly formed state governments in order to increase their wealth and power over their neighbors in the state. Note the land wars. Today, heavily financed special interest groups and corporations influence men and women of weak character in government to enact unconstitutional laws which favor their own interests in the marketplace, thus curtailing the free exchange of goods and services in the marketplace among those with less money, influence, and power. These despicable practices are common throughout history.]

Whereas COMPLAINANT, Russ Hinds, has over the course of 3+ years exhausted all methods of Appeal and Petition within Washington State government to resolve the issuance of 2 Washington Department of Labor and Industry citations containing harmful fines totaling $1500.00 and threats of other penalties which fly in the face of our U.S. Constitution and Bill of Rights by depriving Russ Hinds of his Constitutionally protected right to publish a list of his skills on a simple flier which was posted on a private owned bulletin board--which was located in Yokes Market, Deer Par, WA, for the purpose of posting such notices and fliers for the benefit of the public;

Comes now, Russ Hinds, the undersigned COMPLAINANT, before the magistrate in United States District Court, being duly sworn upon oath, and under penalties of perjury, and states that there is probable cause to believe that the above-named ACCUSED have violated the statutes 18 USC 241 and 242

On October 15, 2011, I posted a truthful innocent flier on the bulletin board located in Yokes Market, Deer park, WA. [See Exhibit 1] attached. Notice that there is no intent to defraud or harm my neighbors found in the words of my flier.
On October 25, 2011, I received a call on my cell phone from Insp. Phillip Jordan of Washington Department of Labor and Industries. Insp. Jordan informed me that I would be receiving a $500.00 citation in the mail from WDLI for including the word “electrical” on my flier. This seemed completely outrageous and unconstitutional to me. I wondered what kind of scam is going on here. I know I have a constitutionally protected right to publish a list of my skills. I called my father to see if he had given anyone my mailing address as it was not present on the flier. My father stated that he had been called by someone identifying himself as someone needing work completed on his unfinished bedroom remodel. This caller insisted on mailing some blueprints for me to look at before he would use my services, but dad replied that I work by the hour and I am not doing contract work, however dad was sure I had the skills to complete a simple bedroom remodel. After further coaxing, dad relented and gave the guy on the phone my mailing address. I told dad that he had been deceived by a government employee in order that the government employee may mail me a $500.00 citation for hanging a flier on a bulletin board. Dad did not believe me.
On November 2, 2011, I received an unsigned citation accompanied by a unsigned threatening letter demanding that I pay a $500.00 penalty to the address given. [See Exhibit 2 attached] I thought this was a mail fraud scam because I did not get the courtesy of a face to face conversation with someone showing me their credentials. Nevertheless, I followed the instructions on the letter and filed an appeal of the citation in order to request my constitutionally protected right to a trial by jury before my liberty and property ($500.00) could be taken from me by government employees. Upon getting a legitimate response to my request for an appeal from WDLI, I honestly drew the conclusion that WDLI is running a “police for profit” scam with their administrative law. Administrative Law is law that governs the administration of a government program and is limited to that government program AND not to be applied to the general public which has not contracted or applied to work under the administrative law governing the program. I had not, and still have not, applied to work under the administrative law that governs WDLI. I have not signed away my constitutionally protected rights by applying to work for my good neighbors under a license issued by WDLI.
On November 4, 2011, my father received another phone call from someone pretending to be interested in using my services which were offered on my flier. Dad knew that he was being lied to again by a government employee because he and my mom had removed all of my fliers. Dad said, “I am sorry, sir. My son is no longer offering his services because he got a ticket in the mail for $500.00 from WDLI for looking for a job. What kind of lowlife piece of **** would send a guy looking for work a $500.00 ticket in the mail? ...”
On November 8, 2011, I received another unsigned threatening letter with a citation demanding payment of a $1000.00 fine for the same flier, on the same bulletin board, for the same day as the previous citation. [See Exhibit 3 attached] I followed the instructions on that letter and filed for an appeal so that I could request my constitutionally protected right to a trial by a jury of my good neighbors.
My request for a due process trial by jury was ignored and a date of May 24, 2012, was set for an administrative hearing before Administrative Law Judge Mark Kim. Please note here that a trial by jury could have resolved the citations in 6 weeks, however, WDLI finds it convenient to take up a great deal of time, effort, and expense in order to make it easier for victims of their “police for profit” scam to just pay the fine rather than contest it.
With the expectation that courts and hearings in America are supposed to protect the innocent and hold the guilty accountable according to the whole truth, which is a correct expectation of We the People whom government employees are supposed to serve, I take the time and effort to file briefs and etc. with ALJ Mark Kim myself. I did not desire to turn a little flier on a bulletin board into thousands of dollars spent on attorney's fees. [These briefs and all other documentation pertaining to these 2 citations will be timely presented to the court and defense at request any time before trial of the ACCUSED.] It is notable that AAG Angela Zurlini's Brief to ALJ Mark Kim opens with “Naked castings into the constitutional sea do not warrant judicial consideration or discussion.” I asked ALJ Mark Kim what a “constitutional sea” is? I am still waiting for an answer.
ALJ Mark Kim and AAG Angela Zurlini proceed with the appeal hearing.
ALJ Mark Kim and AAG Angela Zurlini then conspired to place me under jurisdiction of administrative law while not showing any proof that I had applied or contracted to be a participant of their Administrative Programs. This was deliberately done in order to defend the legitimacy of the citations, and defend the actions of the Inspectors Phillip Jordan and Michael Thrams.
Phillip Jordan and Michael Thrams, like all citizens and good neighbors of the United States have a civic duty to uphold our Supreme Law of the Land, the U.S. Constitution. However, men of weak character will often disregard their civic duty if they are led to believe that their job may be at risk if they do not do as instructed by their supervisors. There is no excuse for ALJ Mark Kim and AAG Angela Zurlini, though. Both ALJ Mark Kim and AAG Angela Zurlini have taken Washington State's OATH OF ATTORNEY which states in part, “I will support the Constitution of the State of Washington and the Constitution of the United States.”
I evidently won the argument in the Appeal Hearing because ALJ Mark Kim stated in his Final Order,
"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 of the statute."
ALJ Mark Kim then disregards his civic duty and his OATH OF ATTORNEY by stating, "The Office of Administrative Hearings is unable to render an opinion regarding the constitutionality of chapter 19.28 RCW. Addressing these arguments falls outside the scope of what this tribunal has authority to address. "[T]he power of an administrative tribunal to fashion a remedy is strictly limited by statute."Skagit Surveyors and Engineers, LLC v. Friends of Skagit County, 135 Wash. 2d 542, 558, 958, P. 2d 962, 970 (1998). The appropriate forum for such claims is in a court of general jurisdiction such as, Washington State Superior Court." The only way ALJ Mark Kim can be correct in the previous statement is if Administrative Law and Administrative Hearings are strictly limited in jurisdiction to be applied only to those individuals who have agreed to place themselves under administrative law, and under the jurisdiction of Administrative Law Judges, by application or contract. Once again, I have not applied, or contracted, to work under the administration of the WDLI programs. I have not signed an agreement waiving my constitutionally protected rights and liberties. I should not have been issued the 2 citations because administrative law does not apply to the general public who have not signed away their constitutionally protected rights and liberties by participating in government programs governed by administrative law.
ALJ Mark Kim's Final Orders keep both citations and fines in place. [Exhibits 4 and 5 attached]
I then appeal the ALJ Mark Kim's PROPOSED DECISION AND ORDER for the electrical citation to the Electrical Board in Olympia where I am told:
BOARD MEMBER GUILLOT “You are not the only victim that has come in here and waved the American flag. And I'm telling you that the bottom line of all these rules---”
MR. HINDS “Is the Supreme Law of the Land”
BOARD MEMBER GUILLOT “No it's not. It's to save public lives. We do not want our citizens burned down because of something that was done wrong.
The above is taken from the transcript of the Electrical Board hearing. [See Exhibit 6 attached] Guillot admits that I am a victim and that there have been other victims to stand before the Electrical Board. The problem is, Guillot thinks that accusing his neighbors of being a danger to their neighbors and fining the accused $500.00 saves lives. We have a system for law enforcement to accuse people of being a danger to their neighbors. Law enforcement simply files charges and then proceeds to get a conviction by a jury of good neighbors. That is how you lawfully, and under the U.S Constitution, handle dangerous people who are accused of being danger to their neighbors. Juries do not convict their neighbors on the silly unprovable assumption that he
might be a danger to his neighbors, either! Guillot's reasoning is silly, immature, and arrogant because he assumes I might be a danger to my neighbors.
[NOTE FOR THE COURT: A false statement on WDLI's web page titled About the Electrical Program may be confusing to government employees. The statement reads, All electrical work done in Washington is inspected for quality and safety to keep Washington's citizens safe.” The truth is, maintenance technicians lacking Electrician Licenses who are employed by apartment complexes, Washington State government, and other businesses make minor electrical repairs such as replacing receptacles, switches, relays, ballasts, etc. without WDLI permits, licenses, or supervision. Inspector Phillip Jordan and his supervisors have stretched the application of their Administrative Law and jurisdiction in order to collect on fines issued to individuals who engage in the free exchange of goods and services. They are not applying the law equally to all individuals as required by Article 14 of the Bill of Rights, Equal Protection Under the Law, because they do not issue citations to maintenance technicians employed by apartment complexes, Washington state government, etc. There is also a section on the WDLI website which states “When a permit is not required,” with a large list of minor electrical repairs that are exempt from the permit process.]
On February 22, 2013, I filed an appeal of ALJ Mark Kim's ORDER with the Superior Court for Spokane County. In AAG Angela Zurlini's brief to the Superior Court she states, “Mr. Hinds does not have a right to a jury in this case.” [See Exhibit 7 attached] Judge Gregory Sypolt joins AAG Zurlini in violating 18 USC 241 and 242 by ignoring or denying my request for my constitutionally protected right to a trial by jury, which is protected by Article 6 in the Bill of Rights of the U.S Constitution. After taking some time for oral argument, Judge Sypolt then rules in favor of upholding the unconstitutional citation and fine.
On July 18, 2012, I filed an appeal of ALJ Mark Kim's FINAL ORDER upholding the unconstitutional Contractor citation and $1000.00 fine with the Superior Court for Spokane County. After paying a $50.00 fee, I was not given a date for appearing before the court until after Judge Sypolt had heard the appeal of the Electrical Citation. I don't know why there was such a long delay.
On August 30, 2013, I appeared before Judge Maryann Moreno with AAG Angela Zurlini representing WDLI. Judge Moreno stated that she had read the entire transcript of ALJ Mark Kim's hearing, and then remarked, “It appears to me that you do not have a beef with me or this court, but rather you have a beef with the Washington State legislature.” I was amused at this tactic because I have heard it before. Government employees always seek to deter and distract people from the simple and right remedy to the issue, which is simply adhering to the Supreme Law of the Land, Instead, they attempt to send me on a wild goose chase fruitlessly trying to reason with 150 legislators. The truth is, I do not have a beef with anybody. WDLI Inspectors Phillip Jordan and Michael Thrams have a beef with me as demonstrated by their 2 unconstitutional citations. Nevertheless, Judge Maryann Moreno joined AAG Angela Zurlini in violation of 18 USC 241 and 242 by upholding the unconstitutional $1000.00 fine and citation.
I appealed both Judge Moreno's and Judge Sypolt's rulings to the Court of Appeals of Washington State within the 30 day requirement. I filed for a waiver of the $580.00 fees. The Waiver of Fees was denied by the Supreme Court of Washington State. No further action was taken by me, and the Court of Appeals discharged my appeal due to lack of fees paid.
Within the recent weeks, Washington Department of Labor and Industries has resumed their assault on my constitutionally protected rights under color of law by hiring a collection agency to collect the $500.00 fine, and by sending me a disturbing letter demanding payment of the $1000.00 fine for the contractor program citation which pretends that I am a registered Contractor with their agency. [See Exhibits 8 and 9]
From the beginning of this troublesome and costly argument with misdirected government employees, I have kept a running Blog online in order to keep the simple truth clear and simple. Most, if not all of the pertinent documents and my responses have been uploaded to the blog. I have also kept in touch with my representatives in the legislature since the beginning. All of the expenses incurred by the people of the state of Washington and by me could have been avoided if everyone involved simply did their neighborly civic duty to uphold our state and federal constitutions, and adhered to their Oath of Office. I am saddened by the government employees' lack of respect for the lives, limbs, and treasure that has been given in order to preserve the liberties and rights which are protected in our Supreme Laws of the Land for our posterity. How in the world can my simple sixth grade level communication with government employees fail to resolve these citations according to our Supreme Law of the Land, I do not know. Perhaps the disdain shown in Inspector Phillip Jordan’s statement about our phone conversation shows the reason why, “Russ started in again about our nation's constitution. I terminated our phone conversation.” [See Exhibit 10 attached]
My father and 3 of my sons have risked their lives defending the Constitution from all enemies foreign and domestic. I can do no less than they have done. I can look them in the eye and they can look me in the eye. We hate to see all this foolishness overtaking our great country. The foolishness needs to stop. We need to right the boat before it completely capsizes. I pray that there are men and women left who can help me right the boat.

The number of comments to my blog from other “victims,” as portrayed by Board Member Guillot, show cause for an audit of WDLI's revenue collection through unconstitutional fines issued to the general public. Thousands of $500.00 - $1000.00 fines issued to people who post truthful ads on CraigsList and fliers on bulletin boards across the state of Washington are a tremendous boon to the employees of WDLI, -funding their salaries, benefits, and retirement systems. By statute, revenue collected from WDLI fees and fines goes back into the operating budget of WDLI. There exists the incentive to issue citations and fines to the general public under the color of law, administrative law--which does not apply to the general public. The fliers such as mine and the posts to CraigsList, which are fined by WDLI employees, are not fraudulently claiming to be licensed under WDLI administration, rather they are simply honest free speech in an effort to participate in the free exchange of goods and services. The free exchange of goods and services is not an illegal act in the U.S.A. [Example for the court: I (any home owner) can obtain a permit to build a permanent structure on my property through the appropriate county offices. The permit process requires me to obtain certain inspections for the safety of people using the permanent structure. During construction, I can go down to the local VFW and hire a guy off the bar stool to help me build forms for the foundation, frame the walls, construct the roof, and install the electrical wiring. No licensing is required to do these things as long as the work is found to be up to code by the inspectors assigned to the project through the building permit process. The government employees are there to help the general public, not make a profit off the general public.]
The licensing programs were put into place by the state legislature for the convenience of the general public in order to provide an honest means of determining the qualifications of an individual who participates in the free exchange of goods and services. Obtaining a license from WDLI is proof to the consumer that the service provider has met a minimum standard of competence in the field the license covers. The licensing program is not in place to monopolize the free exchange of goods and services by making it illegal for me to hire a guy off a bar stool to help me replace a light switch. However, the unions involved in the construction trades do lobby the legislature and WDLI for laws and enforcement that prohibits unlicensed free exchange of goods and services for their own benefit and the benefit of their members. The lobbyists have found much success with men and women of weak and corrupt character who are employed in the state bureaucracies and legislature. Perhaps, sometimes it is just very easy for shrewd and deceptive lobbyists to pull the wool over the eyes of gullible naive inexperienced executive bureaucrats, government paid incompetent counsel, and “average citizen” legislators. Perhaps something needs to be said about government schools that graduate individuals who do not know that it is their good neighbor civic duty to support the rule of law in our Supreme Laws of the Land and abide by their Oath of Office. Those neighbors who do not wish to support our Supreme Laws of the Land simply need to convince their neighbors to change the Supreme Law of the Land before instituting unconstitutional legislation, application, and enforcement of “law” that violates the liberties and rights protected in our state and federal constitutions. I regret that the lack of a proper education in civic duty has caused so much trouble and expense for the people of the state of Washington in this case.
Submitted under oath and with all due respect for the court by the undersigned:

COMPLAINANT ______________________________ Date.________________________
Witnesses' and Officials' signatures:

NOTE FOR BLOG READERS: The "Exhibits" have already been uploaded to this blog in the order I received them and UPDATED the blog with my responses.

I have literally had a lifetime experience arguing with government employees and other liars attempting to justify their assaults on me by lying and falsely accusing me of being a “bad guy.” I have seen just about every excuse a government employee can drum up for not abiding by the good neighborly thing to do, which is to uphold our Supreme Law of the Land. Honestly, I am very sick of these weak insecure egotistical and arrogant toddlers assaulting me and seeking every childish way to cover their ass. It is old and tiresome to me. Do you want a list? If you have read this complete blog, you have already read about many of my experiences with idiots in authority. Let me list just some of them for you:
1. As a child I had numerous experiences with local police harassing me on my mini-bike and motorcycles.
2. Going through an unwanted divorce, I had a wife who told the court that she was afraid of me because of my temper although I had never laid a hand on her, even after her deliberate attempts to provoke me into hitting her so that she could get her divorce. We argued over her obsession with the expensive and foolish “social life” at the local bars. She got her divorce and became a bartender shacking up with a number of idiots found in the bars. The court judge said, “Shacking up and tending bar are not sufficient grounds to remove the children from their mother and return them to you.” The judge made it legal for at-fault adulterous mothers to throw away not-at-fault fathers and keep his children and income, while forcing a loving father to helplessly watch his sons raised in shack ups and bars. Very sickening and it fills a father with tons and tons of grief. My efforts to communicate common sense and common decency with the Siskiyou County courts were not fruitful. Government employees mostly do not have a conscience.
  1. I had a boss, a Maintenance Foreman, at the National Park Service who wanted to get me fired. He wrote up 2 letters of admonishment, 2 letters of reprimand, and a proposal to suspend me for 14 days. On the 14 day suspension, the guy walked up to me while screaming at me. He got so close to me in my face and in my space that our chests touched. He was trying to provoke me into throwing a punch at him, but it didn't work. Since he was so close to me, I rubbed noses with him like the Eskimos do in Alaska. I filed responses and Grievances to all of his adverse actions against me. I went all they way up the appeals process and eventually got a judge from Washington DC to come out and conduct a trial in the National Park I was employed. The end result was, management at the park exposed to everyone up the chain of command how childish and incompetent they were. All of upper management protected the foreman and superintendent, but my foreman learned a lot and he ceased his efforts to get me fired. I earned his respect because he knew what a fool he had made of himself in front of park staff and upper management in the regional offices. In my responses, I was pleased to include character references from all but three of the staff at the park, plus several from staff who had transferred to other parks. The Superintendent retired before the hearing in the park with the judge from Washington DC.
  2. After a period of peace while I raised a family in my second marriage, the assaults began again. Both at my job as a Maintenance Supervisor in a high-end apartment complex, and with the local Reno police. I make friends easy. At the apartment complex, many respected professionals and retirees living there stormed the Superintendent's office in my defense protesting my being fired. And, once again, that issue was over nothing but a lot of nonsense and false accusations. Just like the Park Service battle was over nonsense and ego. I never knew toddlers could have such huge egos.
  3. I got assaulted by police in Reno who lied on their citations claiming that I resisted arrest. All three charges were dismissed...

Then I come to Washington, and in less than 1 month I am embroiled in another nonsensical argument with insecure and egotistical government employees. I am sick of it.
Here is the cover letter that I included with my COMPLAINT in US District Court. It is self explanatory:

March 25, 2015

TO: Magistrate Judge John T. Rodgers
U.S. District Court
PO Box 1493
Spokane, WA 99210

FROM: Russ Hinds
Elk, WA 99009

SUBJECT: Swearing in of a COMPLAINT

Judge John T. Rodgers,
I would like to swear in the enclosed COMPLAINT. I attempted to do this on March 18, 2015, but I was not allowed to enter the federal court house because I do not have a picture ID. May we please make arrangements to get my complaint made official by testimony under penalty of perjury and filed on record with your court?
Today, I drove to Newport, WA, Department of Licensing and Registration to get a Washington State picture ID. I showed the public servant a certified copy of my birth certificate, a Social Security Card, a photo copy of my old Nevada Drivers License, and proof of my address. The public servant refused to give me a Washington State Picture ID. She had a problem with my certified copy of my birth certificate, and she said that I need 2 more proofs of ID. Therefore she needed me to get a new certified copy of my birth certificate and ask other government agencies for other documents proving that I am not a terrorist, or proving that I exist, and that I am who I say I am.
The time required for obtaining these documents, and the out of pocket expense, is detrimental to the timely filing of my COMPLAINT in US District Court. After 3 years of trying to respectfully communicate and resolve the citations contained within my complaint according to our Supreme Law of the Land, I am afraid that further delay may be detrimental to my case.
My effort and motivation for filing this COMPLAINT is for the education of my neighbors employed in government. If we wish to remain a civilized society of good neighbors who do their civic duty to support and defend our state and federal constitutions, we need government employees to be aware of the consequences of their unconstitutional actions. Evidently, government employees are not trained to support our Supreme Laws of the Land. My COMPLAINT is directed at educating government employees and maintaining a civilized society of good neighbors.
Please call me at my phone number above to inform me of a time I may appear for swearing in and signing in your presence. I will show up at any time you specify if you will inform the security guard at the door of the federal court to let me in. I am fine with an escort to your chambers if need be.

Thank you very much,
Russ Hinds

Enclosure: COMPLAINT
I have done the best I could. I could not reason with the ladies who issue picture IDs. I could not reason with the federal court security guard. Honestly, these people can look for ways to accommodate the needs of their neighbors. If they were ridiculously afraid I might be a threat to the court, they could have escorted me into the court so that I could conduct my business there. Yet, these government employees have their head up their ass. They have forgotten common sense and common decency under their made-up excuses and fear of “threats” from terrorists and constitutionalists. It is blatently and completely obvious that I am not a terrorist, yet idiots who are supposed to be good neighbors display irrational fear. You cannot reason with irrational people. They are too quick to invent irrational lies to justify their false fears and justify (protect) their job and paycheck.
I sent the COMPLAINT via Certified Mail with a return receipt. Once again, my only weapon is the simple and rational truth... What they do with it is up to them.

The ball is in their court...

I need to notify all of the Washington State Legislature and my readers. Now, we will see what happens...

Oh yeah, California still owes me (and a lot of other fathers) an apology for forcing me to watch my sons raised in shack-ups and bars. Perhaps if the fathers in California decided to do the role God gave them to do, then their drought would be over. I mean forcing a father to not be able to love, lead, TEACH, take care of, and PROTECT his children is abhorrent to our loving Father in heaven. He will find ways to correct their error by the consequences He has established.

2Chronicles 7:13,14
If I shut up heaven that there be no rain, or if I command the locusts to devour the land or if I send pestilence among My people,
 if My people, who are called by My name, shall humble themselves and pray, and seek My face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and will heal their land.

Mal. 4:6 He will turn the hearts of the parents to their children, and the hearts of the children to their parents; or else I (the Lord) will come and strike the land with total destruction."

Wake up America! We used to be a civilized society of good neighbors...

March 10, 2015, UPDATE: Hurt feelings in the legislature...

     Last week I spoke to two Legislative Assistants over the phone. The first one was a pleasant conversation with a person who seemed to care about government functioning correctly under our state and federal constitutions. She promised that she would look over my blog. There was one instance in the conversation in which she was candid about her feelings. I had said that government employees need to know the alphabet and have a 4th grade reading comprehension level in order to understand and uphold our Supreme Laws of the Land. She did not like that statement I made, and she pointed out that she works hard and does not appreciate people abusing government employees. I told her that I used to work for the government and I hated the public disdain for government employees, too. I hated when jokes were made about a government work crew repairing a road, five guys watching one guy with a shovel. I worked hard in my government job as a NPS maintenance technician, and I was often annoyed by the laziness of my co-workers. Anyway, this conversation with the first LA ended respectfully. I assume that this LA does have some respect for our Supreme Laws of the Land. However, being immersed in a legislature that has few members who know the alphabet and have a 4th grade reading comprehension level makes it very difficult to accomplish anything that resembles "protecting and maintaining individual rights" as required by our Washington State Constitution. Nonetheless, I here give my deep appreciation for the candid phone conversation. I hope that we can continue encouraging and inspiring We the People's representatives to adhere to their Oath of Office.
    The conversation I had with the other Legislative Assistant was absolutely horrible and left me bummed out for 3 days. I have waited until now to UPDATE my blog hoping that this legislative assistant might contact me to apologize for hanging up on me. She has not contacted me...
     This legislative assistant recognized who I was after I introduced myself over the phone. She launched into a grievance about a previous phone conversation we had. She claimed that I was abusive, disrespectful, and cussed her out on our last phone conversation. She stated that prior to that conversation, she had worked hours and hours on my case, however she would not devote anymore time to my case after that conversation and after I had written about her on my blog.  I did not find anything I wrote about her, but I did find where I wrote about her boss, Rep. Shelly Short.
    I have no memory of a phone conversation with this Legislative Assistant in which I became abusive, and cussed her out. In fact, I have many memories of deliberately desiring NOT to cuss government employees out, especially my state representatives. Before each phone call I made, I would remind myself to be nice and not let them anger me to the point of losing it. Me thinks there is a different reason for this legislative assistant to be upset. I think that previous UPDATES to this blog, which mention the legislator whom this LA works for, angered both the legislator, Shelly Short, AND her assistant. Here are the UPDATES which may have upset these very sensitive people:
May 28, 2014
June 15, 2014
July 1, 2014
July 11, 2014
July 18, 2014
October 4, 2014

    Those UPDATES begin with me expressing appreciation for Rep. Short's effort to get a "Helping the Local Handyman" bill passed. I learned that the entire legislature has handicapped itself by making a rule that "all legislation is to be considered constitutional by all legislators until the Washington State Supreme Court decides otherwise." Basically, the legislature has nullified its own Oath of Office because their rules prevent them from expressing their opinion on unconstitutional legislation. How crazy is that? We the People have a neighborly civic duty to support and uphold our state and federal constitutions, yet the legislature nullified their neighborly civic duty AND their Oath of Office. That is pretty frustrating for a guy like me to run into a wall such as that ridiculous nonsense. In the following UPDATES I firmly express my disappointment and I reluctantly begin to mention names, even while trying very hard to be respectful and understanding. What is wrong with adhering to your Oath of Office? Does exposing government nonsense anger very sensitive people to the point that they no longer feel obligated to adhere to their Oath of Office? Does being angry at little ol' Russ Hinds justify a state representative and her assistant ignoring the unconstitutional enforcement of unconstitutional RCWs? No. The unconstitutional enforcement of unconstitutional RCW's is way bigger than little ol' Russ Hinds... but now these two individuals have given themselves the excuse they need for dropping the ball. Once again, never mind the fact that much life, limb, and treasure has been given to defend our state and federal constitutions from all enemies foreign and domestic.
    To me, this appears to be about as childish as anyone can get. I honestly believe that this legislative assistant exaggerated my firmness and frankness in our phone conversation to further justify dropping any further effort to assist little ol' Russ Hinds.  I can picture them feeling mutually insulted by my blog posts and feeding off each other's anger to the point of accusing me of cussing out the legislative assistant over the phone. I wish we had a recording of the phone conversation. I also suspect that this legislative assistant has poisoned the well for me. It seems quite possible that this lady LA, when contacted by other legislators and LAs, is quick to discredit me and my efforts to correct unconstitutional out of control government and government employees. Rather than being encouraged to join me in doing the right thing defending our Supreme Laws of the Land on my blog, my other representatives and LAs are possibly told to fear my blog by someone who got their panties in a bunch.
    My blog posts listed above start out being respectful and appreciative and then progress to firm and frank truthfulness. Some frustration on my part is present in my blog posts as I fail to understand legislators who nullify their Oath of Office with ridiculous rules coming from their leaders and their government paid lawyers giving bad counsel.
   I hope I am being very simple and clear here. I want people to understand what I am writing, therefore I am frank, bringing out the obvious. Obvious, obvious, obvious... I do not live in la-la land where the simple and obvious are blown off and disregarded.
    Anyway, I am not going to Olympia. I won't waste my time and money with people whose feelings have been hurt beyond common sense. Hurt feelings do not justify throwing out a simple and beautiful opportunity to correct out of control unconstitutional government by protecting the right of individuals to publish a list of their skills and protecting our right to a trial by jury before government employees can take away liberty to publish and take away property by assessing outrageous $1500.00 fines for hanging an innocent truthful flyer on a private bulletin board.
     Please note that my feelings are not hurt. These people can do what they want to do. What they do and think does not affect my comfort with myself and with God. They can think of me any way they want, however true and untrue their thoughts are. I just have an attitude of disappointment. I am disappointed in my neighbors who take an Oath of Office to support and defend our state and federal constitutions for the people they are supposed to be representing. I am very sure that my father and three of my sons who risked life and limb to defend our constitutions from all enemies foreign and domestic are proud of me, despite the petty childish anger displayed by people in government who take an Oath of Office. I have put up a thorough and long fight. I have no regrets and no shame. I can look my children and grandchildren in the eye and tell them of my efforts to uphold our Supreme Laws of the Land. There is no shame in doing our civic duty to support our Supreme Laws of the Land...
     May shame fall on those who truthfully deserve it. May it wake them up to doing their neighborly civic duty...
     Meanwhile, because of these experiences which have prompted these most recent posts to this blog, I have resolved that we will not return to common sense, common decency, and constitutional government until the hammer falls. Government will continue taxing, spending, and building the police state and the welfare state. They will raise taxes on gasoline and they will increase regulation on everything that good life involves. It is a terrible disgrace. Our founding father John Adams is repenting in heaven right now:

Posterity, you will never know how much it cost the present generation to preserve your freedom. I hope you will make good use of it. If you do not, I shall repent in heaven that ever I took half the pains to preserve it. 
John Adams

    I am a big boy. I am a forgiving and understanding individual. It is never too late to work with me to uphold and defend our state and federal constitutions and restrain out of control government and its mis-directed government employees. I am still hoping to find wise mature representatives and government employees who honor and respect the life, limb, and treasure given to preserve the rights and liberties protected in our sate and federal constitutions for our posterity.
   Simple, simple, simple... Get a grip! They really and truly do need to have that epiphany I have spoke of many times in previous UPDATES. Who would have ever thought that an Oath of Office could become an epiphany??? Good grief!

    The truth is, my father and 3 sons have served in  foreign wars to defend the right of Rep. Short and her Legislative Assistant to publish a list of their skills and their right to a trial by jury. I am completely honored to stand with them in their effort to uphold liberty and justice for all, even though I have not taken the risk of life and limb as they did.
