January 24, 2015, UPDATE: Some things need to be said.

    According to what I said in my last UPDATE, I once again notified all of the legislators in Olympia, WA, of my letter to WDLI Director Joel Sacks. This time I only received a few responses, much fewer than my previous mass email. Here is the email I sent:

SUBJECT:  Director Joel Sacks of WDLI


Please find the letter to Director Joel Sacks in my latest UPDATE to my Blog: 
---BLOG URL---
It is well understood that legislators who adhere to their Oath of Office will 
inspire all government employees to do the same. The reverse is also true. 
Legislators who disregard their Oath of Office will inspire all government 
employees to disregard their civic duties.This really is basic 6th grade level 
civics instruction, but unfortunately too much mental gymnastics has crept into 
We the People's halls of government. It has become obvious that government 
employees and lawyers have forgotten their civic duty and the principles of 
constitutional government and somehow found a legitimate function of government 
to be fining citizens $1500.00 for publishing a list of their skills in an 
effort to innocently serve their neighbors. 
I would like to help you correct this nonsense...
Sincerely, Russ Hinds

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

Here is one of the responses from a legislator's assistant:

Dear Russ,

Thank you for contacting Senator So and So and for taking the time to share your 
concerns. I will see to it that Senator So and So receives your e-mail message 
this afternoon.


Here is another one from a senator himself:

Mr. Hinds,

Thank you for your e-mail. I appreciate your input and will review your blog 

All my best,

    Our representatives in Olympia are busy. They have a lot to do for the furtherance of government in the state of Washington. ....Hhhrrrummph... Um... We are not on the same page. Furthering government is not what We the People Need. We need to get government out of the way and get it to stop rewarding ignorance, irresponsibility, incompetence, etc with free stuff.
     My little problem is not on my representatives' priority list... and when they talk with their contact person in WDLI, that contact person assures the legislator that WDLI is functioning properly according to the law. After that, since the legislator has other pressing matters on his plate, he can move on to addressing the other matters. Somehow, no one in the legislature has the courtesy to get back with me to inform me of WDLI's position in the matter of fining people $1500.00 for looking for a job. Apparently, I am brushed off as a disgruntled kook, even a constitutionalist disgruntled kook. WDLI's contact person with the legislators is quite skilled at discrediting the complainant(me) and assuring the legislator that everything is hunky dory. THIS IS THE MESS WE HAVE CREATED WITH OUT OF CONTROL GOVERNMENT WHICH IS WAY OUT OF CONSTITUTIONAL RESTRAINTS.
     Just as the simple truth can be buried under mountains of lies, inferences, nuances, and wrong assumptions, so can government employees bury their unconstitutional conduct in the "gray area" utilizing lies, inferences, nuances, and wrong assumptions. In my case, one disgruntled citizen is easily tossed aside as simply a nuisance. Once the legislator's concerns are satisfied by the WDLI contact person, the legislator can get back to "more serious matters" on his desk. Thus, the stand I have taken gets drawn out till the end of time.
    The only bright spot in this is the fact that my stand and my blog have exposed a lot of people in and out of government to an education in simple reality. --The "reality" of having state and federal constitutions which protect the natural God given rights of the governed and establish government to "protect and maintain individual rights" as stated in Article 1 of the Constitution of the State of Washington.
     Government is not established to punish the innocent for the benefit of the collective... And that is the subtle underlying "lie" used to justify more government interference in the everyday lives of the governed. "In order to protect the public, government must do this, and this, and that, and more of that..." "In order to protect the public, government must issue $1500.00 fines to people who publish a list of their skills and post them on a private bulletin board." UNDER THIS KIND OF REASONING GOVERNMENT EXPANDS WHILE LIBERTY AND JUSTICE DIMINISHES.
     UNDER THIS KIND OF REASONING, THE ESTABLISHED POWERS PLUNGED EUROPE INTO THE DARK AGES. Our founding fathers, their ancestors, and millions of immigrants fled the darkness and oppression in the totalitarian countries of Old Europe and all over the world. They came to America for freedom, liberty, opportunity, and justice where a man could earn a living among good neighbors and keep what he has earned. Note the inscription on the Statue of Liberty:

"Keep, ancient lands, your storied pomp!" cries she
With silent lips. "Give me your tired, your poor,
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
Send these, the homeless, tempest-tossed to me,
I lift my lamp beside the golden door!"

    "Keep, ancient lands, your storied pomp." ??? The pompousness of the establishment rulers merited a mention on the Statue of Liberty. How about that! Of course, in the "ancient lands," those who had the gold ruled. The resources and opportunites were locked up in the hands of the few. Only the kings and his hierarchy had any modicum of freedom and opportunity. And in Old Europe, the church worked with the kings to keep the serfs from rebelling. The pompous Roman Catholic Church propagandized on the side of kings while at the same time kept the serfs ignorant of the simple truth. The invention of the printing press and the translation of Scripture into the languages of the common man created the Renaissance and the founding of the USA. Those ARE the facts, ma'm.
    The rise of America can be attributed to 1. the vast resources(land) and opportunity (freedom) available on the American continent. And 2. the Biblical influence of churches and churchmen who established the colonies, the centers of education, and the governments of the states. It was number 2 that kept the USA from becoming just another vassal of corruption dominated by the power and wealth of Old Europe's kings and church. Mexico has had several revolutions, but the people of Mexico did not have Protestant "Open Bible" education available and widely accepted. The ruling elite managed to maintain their grip on the wealth and government of Mexico. Mexico's revolutions never amounted to much, but in the USA, the Old Europe ruling elite had a long difficult time overcoming the independence and the Biblical knowledge of liberty, morality, justice, and courage, taught in America's protestant churches and schools. America's churches established the tax funded free public schools, and scripture, prayer, and song were part of those public schools for over 100 years. The "melting pot" of the 19th and early 20th century American society, being dominated by Christian educated leaders in local and state government rightly desired that all children be given a basic education in reading writing, and arithmetic, AND THE STATED REASON FOR THIS WAS SO THAT THEY COULD READ THE SCRIPTURE FOR THEMSELVES. Reading scripture defines liberty, morality, responsibility, justice, mercy, courage, and "Love your neighbor" for the minds of upcoming generations. Take away those definitions from upcoming generations and you will have a population of ignorant serfs ready to be exploited, controlled, and commanded under a ruling authority.
    America's road to serfdom began in earnest in 1913 with the establishment of the Federal Reserve Banking System and the establishment of the income tax. With the world's Old Europe Bankers and America's newly created Industrial Revolution wealth (Robber Barons as they were known by the citizenry of the time) in control of America's banking and money printing, the world's wealthiest people could embark America on the road to serfdom and servitude. The "banksters" now had the power to build the government large enough to control the "serfs," whom they regarded as the laboring lower classes. Through taxes and "interest on loans and mortgages" taken from the labors of the common people, the world's richest could embark on their scheme for world dominance under their New World Order.
    In less than fifty years after 1913 (1963), they succeeded in removing scripture and prayer from America's schools --and the American taxpayer paid for it. Fifty years after that(2013), we have a nation of oblivious obedient slaves to work following orders in national and state governments which have deliberately and steadily grown to proportions that would astonish and grieve our founding fathers. NOW, HERE I AM TRYING TO COMMUNICATE ON A BASIS OF OUR FOUNDING DOCUMENTS AND FOUNDING PRINCIPLES OF LIBERTY AND JUSTICE FOR ALL WITH GOVERNMENT EMPLOYEES WHO DO NOT HAVE THE NATURAL DEFINITIONS OF LIBERTY, MORALITY, RESPONSIBILITY, JUSTICE, MERCY, COURAGE AND "LOVE YOUR NEIGHBOR" WRITTEN IN THEIR HEARTS AND MINDS. The government employees, and over half of the U.S. population, have fallen for the lie that we need government to protect, control, and support people for their own good. The government employee paychecks demand that they maintain the current system...
    ...And I am trying to reach them with ideas foreign to their understanding???  ...And I am speaking ideas that may lead to a lot of fear of losing their job by downsizing government... quite a shock to government employees, I am! The government employees prefer the road to serfdom because it secures their paycheck and our servitude to their benefits and pensions.
    Those at the top of government establishment position and power know what I am talking about. Those government employees at the low and middle levels of government follow orders and prefer not to think about or deal with things I am saying. We the People's representatives in the legislature have various levels of understanding. They run the gammit from "government is Savior" to "government is too big and out of control."  Hence, the battle over ideas in the legislature. It results in "government by committee" where nothing can be accomplished according to a simple logical interpretation of our state and federal constitutions.
     Little ol' Russ Hinds cannot be allowed to get his citations resolved according to our state and federal constitutions, either. The "committee" will not agree, and it is too controversial and minor to give any serious time and effort to resolving. If little ol' Russ gets his issues resolved correctly, it might cause others to want the same and the whole house of cards might fall down. I believe it is that simple. My issue could have been constitutionally resolved in six weeks had they simply given me my constitutionally protected right to a trial by jury. But no, the bureaucracy must protect its tyranny. They must not allow a jury the opportunity to resolve my issue according to our natural God given rights which are protected in our state and federal constitutions. Little ol' Russ might be able to convince a jury of good neighbors to nullify the unconstitutional laws and citations. House of cards comes falling down again...
    It is looking more and more like we need some kind of huge crash of the system to wake people up to proper government based in liberty, justice, morality, and give-a-care about your neighbor. It makes me wonder if the banksters have deliberately lowered the price of oil and gasoline in order to relieve some of the stress on the American people and revive an American economy. Doing that would preserve the status-quo and further their agenda by calming down people like me who are beginning to wake up and attempt to correct out of control abusive government. If the economy and other things are going well for the American population, then blogs like this one won't generate much support and the government employees can continue with their so-called progress leading to the technocracy where every transaction between individuals is recorded and the "underground" free economy is destroyed.
    In a government of, for, and by We the people, we have been given a tool for We the People to govern ourselves. That tool is the trial by jury. That is where neighbors judge neighbors and they can judge the "king's" laws, as well. The trial by jury is one of the most essential and foundational rights of a free and just people. That is why the right to a trial by jury it is protected in our founding documents. It is wrong, unjust, and treasonous to deny your neighbor their right to a trial by jury. If We the People will not stand up for the right to a trial by jury, then the road to serfdom and ignorance is complete for our posterity. It breaks my heart... it crushes me to see what has become... I cannot fathom the apathy, ignorance, and blindness in the halls of our representatives as they gather in Olympia.

    In case there are some legislators who agree and understand what I am standing for, I will do another UPDATE which will provide the winning argument for limited constitutional government. ...Just in case there are some who love liberty and justice for all. I will do this before I go to Olympia. What a mess! I really want to go look these people in the eye and see if they can look me in the eye...

January 20, 2015 UPDATE: Are government employees reading my blog? Correspondence with WDLI Director Joel Sacks.

    First, I did email all of the legislators, who happen to be gathered in Olympia for their 105 day session inventing new laws and other such nonsensical ways to waste the taxpayer's money.  I am sure there is a lot of patting each other on the back over there in Olympia. Imagine the comradery of the legislators, the bureaucrats, and the government lawyers sucking up to each other attempting to get their programs expanded with more taxpayer funding.  There comes a point when enough is enough, but few understand that. They have no concept of small government, like our founding fathers intended.
    Here is what I stated in my email:

You may find an interesting dose of reality in the last three UPDATES to my 

 ...BLOG URL...

---I am still trying to get my $1500.00 citations for publishing a list of my 
skills resolved according to our state constitution, --the documents that you 
and many other government employees take an Oath of Office to support. It seems 
many of my good neighbors who work for the gov. do not know what to do with me. 
Perhaps they need your guidance and encouragement to uphold our state and 
federal constitutions. The gov. employees at the lower levels who interface with 
the public pretend to be helpless and uncertain of doing their civic duty to 
uphold our Supreme Laws of the Land which do establish government to protect and 
maintain individual rights, --Article 1, Section 1 of the WA State Constitution.

Thank you for adhering to your Oath and civic duty.
R. Hinds

    I received a few supportive responses from some of the legislators such as this one: 

Thanks for your email and your point of view. I believe too many people are 
forgetting that we have a country and a rule of law. You hang in there stay 
Senator (So and so) 

      I am glad there are a few people in the legislature who do see how far out of control government employees are. However, there is not enough unity and common correct understanding of our state and federal constitutions. Truth is, if they did go back to constitutional government, the change would be too drastic and scary for the weak minded. --Trusted and wise leaders with the vision of our founders in the legislature? Nope... It is pretty much each person for himself/herself in the legislature. The unity lies with those who see the government (and themselves) as the savior of We the People. The small government liberty minded legislators do not have the unity nor the ability to articulate the proper role of government to the "government is savior" crowd. That is why government keeps expanding out of control and outside constitutional restraints. We are in dire need of real statesmen for We the People who insist on supporting constitutional government.
    I think I'll make a trip to Olympia... They need to meet me in person. 

     Well, guess what? I got another Account Statement. This one is declaring that I owe $500.00 for the electrical citation and it contains another threat. If I fail to pay it, they will send a private collection agency after me to collect it. Have at it, boys and girls. I can talk straight with the private collection agency, as well. Will the private collection agency fall lockstep behind out of control government employees when given the full truth about their unconstitutional fines? If I were a private collection agency, I would not take the risk. Participating in extortion alongside ignorant government employees who are disregarding our Supreme Law of the Land might open them up for a lawsuit. 
    In order to keep my communication with government employees up to date and in their face, I wrote a letter to the Director of Washington Department of Labor and Industries. He needs to know the facts. Truly, simply adhering to their Oath of Office would be much easier than playing games with me for over 3 years. Here is my letter to Dir. Joel Sacks:

January 19, 2015

TO: Director Joel Sacks
Washington State
Department of Labor & Industries
P.O. Box 44000
Olympia, WA 98504-4000

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

RE: Account Statement.

Dear Joel,
     Please find the enclosed copy of the Account Statement sent to me in order to collect an unconstitutional fine of $500.00.
     After over three years of trying to communicate at a clear and simple 6th grade level in order to remind my public servants of their civic duty to support our state and federal constitutions, you and your department ought to know that the citations and fines issued to me in the course of mindlessly “just doing my job” are unconstitutional and will not be given any consideration by me, Russ Hinds.
      It has become completely obvious that government employees need an education in the history of this great nation and the fact that lives have been given to preserve and protect our constitutions from all enemies foreign and domestic. I wish I could educate government employees on our founding documents and the writings of the Renaissance that inspired their creation, but I don't have space here to do that for you. Here is a quote from a more recent wise individual who did educate himself concerning reality, liberty, and justice. Albert Einstein said, "A foolish faith in authority is the worst enemy of the truth."
     Indeed, scientists have shown that people will go to absurd lengths – and engage in mental gymnastics – in order to cling to their belief in what those in authority have said. In fact, my Blog, Man Fined $1500.00 for Looking for a Job, has clearly and simply shown the previous statement to be absolutely true. The Blog shows it to be nearly impossible to animate government employees with the ability to think independently from the crowd gathered around the water coolers in government buildings.
    My defense, my arguments, and protests are all based on the factual history of this USA and on the natural rights of man which are protected in our Supreme Law of the Land. I am quite capable of independent thought based in truth, common sense, and common decency and based in OUR civic duty to uphold our state and federal constitutions. Are you capable, or do you prefer to follow the misguided crowd down the road to tyranny?
    The citation, fine, and Account Statement billing me $500.00 are bogus and outside of law. I have not been convicted of a crime by a jury of my good neighbors. Your efforts to collect the fine are lawless acts in a nation founded upon the Rule of Law. Ignoring the Supreme Law of the Land is a lawless act and is still considered treason by those who have given life, limb, and treasure to preserve our Supreme Law of the Land for their posterity.
    Please withdraw your citations and comply with our state and federal Constitutions.

Russ Hinds 

     Now I need to inform the legislators of this letter. It takes over 2 hours for me to do that through their email system, but it is necessary. When I visit them in person, hopefully they will have some idea of what is going on, and what has been going on for over 3 years. This is certainly not how government is supposed to work... 
    I do hope I get the courtesy of a written response from Dir. Joel Sacks. I'll bet that he doesn't have the courage to respond to me in writing. I'll bet he will prefer to ignore my letter and pretend that I don't exist. He will likely let his subordinates handle it. They will drag it out till the end of time... Simple communication between good neighbors is not supposed to work this way... However, the government employees have marked me as some kind of enemy and threat to their system. They must prevail... 
   Bullshit! They must get in line with our state and federal constitutions! 

Here is the threatening Account Statement:  

Saturday, January 10, 2015

January 10, 2015, UPDATE: Went back to Spokane offices of Washington Dept. of Labor and Industries to visit Jeff Martin, Revenue Agent.

    On Friday, January 9, I paid a visit to the WDLI office in Spokane hoping to speak with Jeff Martin, Revenue Agent. Rather than having a sit down discussion of my supposed "Account," Jeff came out of his office to speak with me at the Receptionist counter. This was where I had the conversation with his partner in crime on December 30. I thought Jeff being named as my contact on the "Account Statement" would require a more thorough discussion and explanation in his office, or a small conference room. That did not occur. I take that to mean that I am not wanted in their offices. I am to be gotten rid of as quickly as possible. Last week, I understood being kept at the counter because the other revenue agent was not listed as my contact, but Jeff preferring to keep the meeting minimal and out of his office shows that he would prefer to stay out of my dispute with WDLI. His own words verify that,"Your account statement says that you owe zero. I have not been given any duty to collect on the account. Your account is still in appeal according to the statement. I am not involved."
    When Jeff came out, I introduced myself and informed Jeff that I wanted to show him that I am a human being, and I also wanted to see if he was a human desiring to be a good neighbor who does his civic duty to uphold our Supreme Law of the Land. Jeff said, "Yeah, it is good to be able to put a face to those we are corresponding with." Jeff was a nice enough fellow, but he seemed to be a little uncomfortable. I hope he realized that I did not put him in an uncomfortable position, his superiors did that. But, Jeff displayed no government employee arrogance, as is common with many government employees.
     I asked Jeff what he had found out would be the next thing WDLI is going to do to me. He had said on the phone before Christmas that he would find out and get get back to me. Obviously, he never called me back. Jeff said that my citations were still in appeal. He doesn't know what will happen until my case comes out of appeal and is given to him with instructions. He is stalling and pushing responsibility off of himself and up the chain of command. This is common practice for government employees. They always dodge responsibility as quickly as possible. We have seen this throughout my blog. They blame the statute, the legislature, their job, but no government employee wants to stick their neck out and take a stand on upholding our state and federal constitutions.
    I told Jeff that I am there because it is my desire to have these citations resolved according to our Supreme Law of the Land. I said that I don't want my citations put in a never-never land on the bottom of a stack of files somewhere. If it is buried and kept buried, it will never be resolved according to our state and federal constitutions. Resolving issues according to our constitutions by striking down the unconstitutional citations or a trial by a jury of good neighbors is the last thing WDLI employees at the top want. Everything they have done, which is recorded in this blog, proves that they do not want any discussion or consideration of our state and federal constitutions. Divert, delay, and dodge are standard procedure for government employees. Every person minding his own business and attempting to scratch out a living needs to know what to expect when they get ensnared in the government's web of accusations and procedures...
    I told Jeff that he needs to know what is going on so that he can stand up to his superiors according to our Supreme Law of the Land. "Jeff, I was told in my appeal hearing that I could not paint a windowsill for a neighbor without first having a contractor's license. They said I could get a shovel and pick up dog poop in the yard, but I couldn't paint a window sill."
   Jeff said, "Yeah, but you could not stick the shovel in the sod and dig up the lawn without having a landscape license."
   WTF?... "Hasn't the pendulum swung way out of bounds? Isn't that crazy? I am trying to educate government employees. That is why I am here and that is why I have a blog. Do you know that a government employee lied to my father over the phone. He claimed to be a client who wanted me to finish remodeling his dad's bedroom..."
    "Yeah, I read your blog.."
     Hallelujah!!! Right on! Then we talked a little more about ethics in government employees and some more about good neighbors upholding our state and federal constitutions. Other people standing and waiting at the receptionist counter got to hear a lot of good stuff! Jeff could not do much more than agree with me. He had read my blog and he knew that I had already gone to the legislature, and my state representative had even filed a "Helping the Local Handyman Bill," so Jeff knew that he could not divert me by saying, "You need to take it up with the legislature." I would have said emphatically in front of everybody, "I did already do that and they are working a getting a handyman bill passed." LOL! I like taking away their diversions!
    This is not the way government is supposed to work... Government today is an assault on the public, and not a public servant. I have been through three years of nonsense. Assaulted by a pack of government employees trying to convince me that I am a bad neighbor who deserves to pay the government employees $1500.00 for hanging a flyer on a private bulletin board. It reminds me of children in daycare trying to be boss over other children in daycare... Or the rich kid clique in high school trying to bully the poor kids in high school. I think some government employees need to grow up and accept the fact that we do have state and federal constitutions which are fought and died for. It is time to put government employees back under the constraints of our constitutions. Perhaps even get rid of about two thirds of the government employees. According to our state constitution, government employees exist to protect and maintain individual rights. It is disgusting to encounter adults acting like children by pretending that they are abiding by our Supreme Law of the Land. I stopped playing "pretend" when I was in elementary school...
    Jeff insisted that he is out of the picture because the Account Statement says zero. I thanked him for his attention and bid goodbye, leaving Jeff to carry on pretending that he is supporting and defending our state and federal constitutions.
   I'll need to update my representatives. The bureaucracies which they have created are creating nightmares for the public whom they are supposed to be serving...  The public are beating their head against bureaucratic walls when the representatives ought to be beating the bureaucracies over the head with with our state and federal constitutions. ...It is a lot easier to run a constitutional government. Out of control government is impossible to manage... Good grief! Get a clue!
