June 17, 2015 UPDATE: Got an unexpected phone call from WDLI

    Jeff Martin from the Spokane office of Washington Department of Labor and Industries gave me an unexpected call yesterday morning. He started off by pointing out that he promised me that he would call me when my case was given back to him, or when he found out what the next course of actions WDLI would take. Then he said something that made me laugh right into the phone. Then he tried to get me to agree with the silly justifications WDLI uses to rationalize issue $1000.00 citations to people who hang fliers on bulletin boards. Man, I was rolling in laughter at the nonsense. I was having a good time defending our Supreme Law of the Land, until finally Jeff lost his marbles. He tried to accuse me of putting words in his mouth as an excuse to end the call. I had told him to come get me and put me in jail. If I am a bad neighbor come get me and put me in jail. I don't even think he got out his main reason for calling me. I guess I hurt his feelings, or perhaps our Supreme Law of the Land hurt his feelings. ...they know what they are doing is wrong... good grief!
   I had to follow up the call with a written letter. Perhaps it will put gonads between his legs. He needs the courage to do the right thing and stand up to the nonsense foisted on him by is supervisors up the chain of command. Here is the letter:

            Dept. of Labor and Industries
             901 N Monroe Street, Suite 100

               *** *** ****

SUBJECT: Follow up on June 16 phone conversation

Dear Jeff Martin,
       I want to thank you for the unexpected phone conversation we had yesterday morning. I love it when good neighbors can get together to talk honestly and frankly. However, there does arise a problem in every frank and honest conversation/disagreement. One party to the conversation/disagreement has to be right and correct on the issue being discussed and debated, and that simply leads to the other party being wrong and incorrect. Unfortunately for you, I am right based on the history of this great nation and based on our Supreme Law of the Land. You and the rest of the Washington state government employees involved in my case are wrong and standing on sinking sand. I have been disappointed and fascinated by my inability to find one government employee willing to be a good neighbor who does their civic duty to support and defend our Supreme Law of the Land.
       I am writing to provide you with a hard copy of the reasons I am right and correct so that you may find the courage to stand with me and pass this letter up your chain of command. First, let me drag some honesty out of you by pointing out that YOU DO KNOW that government has been expanding outside the limits of its constitutional restraints for many decades--while educated people like myself have been helplessly watching growth of government boom out of control by trampling the very unalienable rights which are protected in our state and federal constitutions. You may seek to justify this expansion and trampling in any way you choose to delude yourself, but that does not mean that I must join you in your delusions. As you can surely see, I have not been convinced by dozens of government employees to join in their disregard of our Supreme Law of the Land, and you must know how disappointed I am in those government employees who have gone so far as to disregard their own Oath of Office and Oath of Attorney. Truly, government employees ought to be ashamed to trample on the life, limb, and treasure of those who have given all to “defending our U.S. Constitution from all enemies, foreign and domestic” for our posterity, yours included. Also note that I have been quite amused at the rationalizations containing twisted word definitions, and the false justifications put forth by government employees to assuage their conscience while they obliterate the very documents which govern the conduct of government employees. (Example: Inferring that “advertising,” posting a flier on a bulletin board, is not constitutionally protected free speech is ludicrous. Thinking that you can convince me to fall in line with that nonsense is delusional.     Deluding yourself with twisted rationalizations and false justifications to go along with your supervisors in order to continue “just doing your job” to collect a paycheck is shameful. Too many men and women of weak character have sought the security of government employment throughout history, and that has led the individuals of weak character to commit crimes while “just following orders.” Note the Nuremberg trials following WWII) You ought to be smarter than that.
      For you and your supervisors up the chain of command, I stand on solid ground here:
  1. The Washington State Constitution, Article 1 SECTION 1 states: 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. Fining your good neighbor $1500.00 for hanging a flier on a private bulletin board is definitely not “protecting and maintaining individual rights.” Preventing your good neighbor from participating in the free exchange of goods and services is not “protecting and maintaining individual rights.”
  2. The Washington State Constitution, Article I SECTION 2 states: The Constitution of the United States is the supreme law of the land. The U.S. Constitution contains a Bill of Rights which protect the rights of the individual people of the nation. Free speech is protected in Article I of the Bill of Rights. The right to a speedy trial by jury is protected in Article VI and VII of the Bill of Rights. Depriving your good neighbor of liberty and property without due process of law(obtaining a conviction from a jury of good neighbors) is strictly prohibited under Article V of the Bill of Rights. --WDLI has violated Article I, V, VI, VII of our Bill of rights. In a nation that seeks to uphold the “rule of law,” it is ludicrous to ignore and disregard the Supreme Law of the Land. Ignorance of the Supreme Law of the Land is no excuse for government employees, either. After almost 4 years of arguing with government employees I am forced to conclude that some kind of mental illness or insanity has crept into the current crop of government employees. This letter is another one of my attempts to correct that.
  3. The People of the great state of Washington elected representatives to the Federal Government in order to maintain our constitutional republic and to uphold and protect our Supreme Law of the Land, thus defending the liberties and rights which are expressly protected in our state and federal constitutions. Our representatives in Congress found it necessary to codify and provide penalties for crimes such as depriving individuals of their constitutionally protected liberties and rights. They provided “teeth” to the constitution. U.S. Code Chapter18 Section 242 states: Whoever, under color of any law, statute, ordinance, regulation, or custom, willfully subjects any person in any State, Territory, Commonwealth, Possession, or District to the deprivation of any rights, privileges, or immunities secured or protected by the Constitution or laws of the United States, or to different punishments, pains, or penalties, on account of such person being an alien, or by reason of his color, or race, than are prescribed for the punishment of citizens, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than one year, or both; and if bodily injury results from the acts committed in violation of this section or if such acts include the use, attempted use, or threatened use of a dangerous weapon, explosives, or fire, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than ten years, or both; and if death results from the acts committed in violation of this section or if such acts include kidnapping or an attempt to kidnap, aggravated sexual abuse, or an attempt to commit aggravated sexual abuse, or an attempt to kill, shall be fined under this title, or imprisoned for any term of years or for life, or both, or may be sentenced to death. Are Washington state government employees attempting to bully me into believing that I am a bad neighbor who owes the government employees $1500.00 for hanging a flier on a bulletin board unaware of 18 USC 242?

      Jeff Martin, based on the above foundations, and on logical common sense and common decency, I have clearly won the argument over WDLI employees unlawfully fining your good neighbor $1500.00 for posting a flier on a bulletin board. However, it appears that our Washington state government employees need to find the joy of upholding our Supreme Laws of the Land, rather than insanely obliterating them. Our predecessors found the joy of writing and defending our Supreme Law of the Land for their posterity, but this long drawn out argument with WDLI has made it clear to me that government employees are being misled and misguided into perverting our state and federal constitutions. And, I can find no one in Washington State government who is standing on their Oath of Office to correct the problem. However, I did find some hope in this ruling by a federal judge: Judge Rules Administrative Court System Illegal After 81 Years
    Perhaps the state of Washington ought to bring its Administrative Law into compliance with our state and federal constitutions. Administrative Law applies only to the administration of a program which only includes the individuals who have signed up to participate in the program and agreed to be under the administrative law governing the program. Administrative Law does not apply to the general public who are not participating in the government program and have not agreed to be governed under Administrative Law.
     Once again, it is obvious to both you and I that government has expanded beyond the constraints of our Supreme Law of the Land over the last 6 decades, or more. Once again, I have communicated simply and clearly at a sixth grade level. I was taught in sixth grade that good neighbors do their civic duty to uphold our Supreme Law of the Land. I hope you have the comprehension skills and honesty of a sixth grader. Sixth graders also know what an Oath of Office means, and even they wouldn't delude themselves into breaking their Oath of Office in order to assault the sensibilities, threaten, bully, and fine a good neighbor.
      If perhaps, our phone conversation ended before you got to mention the reason for your call, please call again, or write to my address at the head of this letter. I will be happy to assist in any way I can. Also, don't forget that you can update yourself concerning this argument and my efforts to correct government employee errors on my blog, Man Fined $1500.00 for Looking for Job.

With all sincerity,

Russ Hinds

There you have it. I am still looking for government employees who desire to be good neighbors who do their civic duty to uphold our Supreme Law of the Land. Crazy! Aren't they?  I actually enjoy respecting the life, limb, and treasure given to preserve the rights and liberties that are protected in our state and federal constitutions for our posterity. Why can't government employees find that joy? They need an epiphany!
