so, it’s been a few months. How ya dune? Me? I’ve been regrouping on multiple levels: from a change in my mood stabilizing medication to getting a bit fitter to reconsidering the direction my podcast, At The Table, which is including a name change. When I started ATT, the concept was to have guests who were in the Creative Arts talk about their work. Over time, I discovered that since I had a very low listenership, the creatives decided I wasn’t worth their time. It became more about “who’s gonna hear” rather than just talking about their process. So, I went solo, and talking/blithering/venting for an hour is an art form I have yet to master. I’m working on it.
Soooooo…. I am also contemplating adding a video live stream so I can “loosen up” in front of the mic. (trust me, it’s easier to talk when you can actually “see”). I”m an actor – I need the audience’s adulation and support, MY GROUPIES RIGHT AND/OR WRONG!!!!!
So, my streaming options are OBS (Open Broadcaster Software) with an external web camera for FBLive or youtube from my laptop, Periscope from my phone/tablet – I had a viewership when Meerkat was around, so Persicope is the more viable option. I love the interaction on Periscope. viewers ask questions and sometimes get a bit rude, but hey, it’s ok.
I’m thinking of renaming the show after my humor blog The 5-23.
There is always someone to talk to.

SovCit. No, I am not referring to Citizens of the former USSR, no I am referring to “Sovereign Citizens” Those “Americans” who think themselves above all laws of their State and Country. Who will not pay taxes, drive with licenses or insurance, and who use th elaws they so despise to harrass the Courts and indiviuals who disagree with them. SovCits, and others believe their 2nd Amendment Rigth to carry trumps everyone elses 4th Amendment Right to be safe in their Persons, Possessions and Home. The intolerance shown toward those who are not like “them” is telling. Their support for unfettered access to firearms enriches the Black Market for firearms aroud the World & provides felons, drug dealers, domestic abusers, the severly mentally ill, and terrorists access to firearms via the Gun Show Loophole. Yet these same “Patriots” yelled and howled over the debacle that was Fast and Furious.
To be clear, I support the Constitution in all it’s Glory, yet I must wonder how past generations, of men and women looking down (or up) at what Mass Hysteria has wrought and are shaking their heads. Too many of these individuals only see the Constitution with only two Amendments: the 2nd and the 10th. Why even a Congressman stated that our Right to Free Speech came from the SECOND. Sir, YOU are entrusted by your constituents, and the rest of America with upholding the Constitution. How can you when you clearly have no freaking clue as to what was therein.
My questionis this: How many of these SovCits, Patriots,and Militiamen are also involved in illegal arms dealing?
To you “Originalists”, So, you only wish White Landowning Males to vote? You want Slavery to return? Indentured Servitude for those who can’t pay debts? Oh,wait, we already have that. The Constitution will still give Congress the Power to regulate Trade and regulate Taxes.
Or, are you just fearful of your own shadow?
To Our Elected members of the Congress and Senate:
When the Will of 90% of the American People is tossed aside to defer to the Firearms Manufacturers and Their Blood Money, it becomes apparent, that the Right to be Secure in Our Homes and Persons means little to them. When the Lives of Our Children mean less than Money, You, have an Issue with Your Conscience, Ethics, and the Creator.
We, the undersigned Americans, therefore, Demand a National Referendum on the Following:
3) Closing of the Gun Show Loophole. While it will not stop lawbreakers from obtaining firearms, it will make it more difficult.
4) Increase penalties for Straw Purchases and Gun Trafficking.
5) The Firearms Manufacturers must have their indemnification against lawsuits removed to enable them to be more responsible in how they market their product.
These five items will only go to Strengthen Our Right to Bear Arms, by bringing the Manufacturers into line with:
Amendment II. A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed.
The following is an excerpt from the 1964 book, The Yahoos, by Mike Newberry. Sound familiar?
The GOP is putting into practice here what was perfected under other Administrations and their destabilization of other countries, particularly in South America. I am of the opinion, that we laugh at the current event page at our peril. The people fomenting sedition and calling for the overthrow of our duly elected government are the shock troops FOX has been grooming since the inception of the network.
These “patriots” have been fed a steady diet of fear, hate, and conspiracy to the point that they have created an entirely separate Consensus Reality where they live in a Repressive [insert Doublespeak Description here] Regime that has taken away their “voice” as Americans. They have fallen prey to the hucksterism of “Sovereign Citizenship” and the embrace of a Social Darwinian view of Humanity, which they have bought as “Christianity“. They have an “I got mine, so fuck you” attitude towards others that are in the situation they were in. While we may jeer at them, they feel and most importantly, they Believe they are being bullied, and we know that the Bullied Can And sometimes Do turn violent and kill everything in sight.
When you listen to people talk about their Constitutional Rights, they seem to leave out the FIRST AMENDMENT. There is a reason why the Framers placed the RIGHTS of Speech, Petition, Press and Worship as Paramount over the Militia. These Sacred Rights are more important than the Milita.
WHAT PART OF:
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.
Do the Fearmongers not comprehend?
And, what brought me to this? There is a Facebook “Event” that is supposed to take place in
May June, when a group of “patriots” will attempt to arrest the entirety of our Duly Elected Government and the Supreme Court.
We The People will meet at the Capital Building in Washington DC to make a mass citizens arrest on every member of congress – both the house and senate, the Vice President and President for Treason against the United States of America.
With the aid of local law enforcement We The People will read formal charges of treason against each and every one of them and then each will be arrested and given due process.
We The People as American citizens have every right to make a citizens arrest if we see a crime being committed or know of a crime that has been committed and OUR elected officials are not holding their oaths to uphold and protect the U.S. Constitution and they no longer represent the people and doing so is TREASON and they must be held accountable.
Its past time the American people took action to hold OUR elected officials accountable for the damage they have done to this great country. I hope you will be one of the true American patriots that will show up and help the American people to see OUR country again.
Lets do this the PEACEFUL way fellow Americans. We are a republic – the rule of law and lets use the law to do the right thing and arrest them all for treason.
Yet, they are not “overthrowing” the Government, because ELECTIONS!!!!!!
To Restore The Republic – Four Goals
All 50 states each nullify the federal government by voting by ballot – only takes 35 to do it.
All 50 states make voter registration without declaring any party – only register to vote. We are all Americans and America comes before any political party. Both major parties are corrupt and no longer represent the people. Make the primaries blanket so there are no parties involved. That means no republican or democrat primaries – all Americans.
All 50 states make ALL elections paper ballot only and mandatory hand counts. NO ELECTRONIC MEANS to count ballots or vote.
All 50 states make it mandatory that a jury is told there are three options – not guilty, guilty, and the law is unjust and nullify the charges. The legal system needs checks and balances too and a jury is one way to do that. The status quo currently HIDES this from any jury.
Ohh, loook!!! Jury Nullification!!!
oh, and they want “Oath Keepers” to protect them, while they attempt to break up the United States of America.
One commenter, speaks thus:
Samantha Adams I would like to get everybody to pledge that they will go over a Constitutional course by either The National Center for Constitutional Studies (NCCS) or by Michael Badnarik, which is currently available through the Internet at:
If they do not make a PLEDGE to go through one of these Constitution courses they should not come.*
Considering the fact,t hat the “Constitutional Expert” is a computer “expert”, conspiracy theorist, and disrespects the flag by placing it upside down, and therefore knows the Real Truth of what our Constitution says. He’s an idiot.
*this is akin to the pre-Voting Rights Act‘s Polling place Literacy Test for Blacks.
I need your help, fellow Genealogists!!! I need people who speak Russian/Moldavian to research the veracity of Taitz’ background story.
Svetlena/Sveta (Orly) AVERBUKH/AVERBUKHA b. August 30, 1960, Kishinev, Moldova
educated in Kishinev, Moldova where she attended a Pharmacy School.
Need Hebrew/Russian speakers to verify that she did indeed graduated with a DDS or equivalent from Hebrew University, as Sveta/Svetlena/Lena Averbuch/Orly Averbuch. I need photos of her on campus with classmates who can verify that the woman claiming to be “Orly Taitz” is indeed the same woman. I also need documentation of when she changed her given name from “Svetlena” or “Sveta” to “Orly”.
I need people to investigate her attendance at Howard Taft Law School, specifically ANYONE who can verify that she wrote her entrance essay, took classes, and passed all exams. These same investigators should also contact the California Bar and seek to verify that “Orly Taitz” is indeed the “Orly Taitz” that was fingerprinted and then sat for the Bar.
I require boots on the ground, and hard copies of documents, and video testimony where possible. Your reward will be the thanks of the American People who are sick and tired of this Seditious creature.
NOTE: THIS HAS BEEN CORRECTED TO REFLECT NEW INFORMATION
When an American Citizen uses fear and intimidation to influence another, it is a crime. When an organization such as the Mafia, or major drug cartels use fear and intimidation against citizens to influence their behavior, you call it “Racketeering”. What is it when Corporations threaten the livelihoods of their employees if they don’t vote a certain way? Certainly, with the Citizens United ruling, and Presidential Candidate Mitt Romney‘s assertion that “Corporations are People”, certainly you have the power of the RICO statutes to investigate them for Voter Intimidation and extortion. Why are Corporate-Americans immune from teh same laws that others are not?
As a contentious election season enters its final weeks, a flurry of communication from corporate leaders to rank-and-file workers strongly implies that voting for President Barack Obama could imperil their jobs and their financial stability.
Employees of a paper company owned by the outspoken billionaire Koch brothers received a mailing warning that they could “suffer the consequences, including higher gasoline prices, runaway inflation, and other ills” if they voted for candidates not supported by Koch-owned companies or its political fund-raising arm.
The company also provided workers with a list of those candidates it supports. At the top: Mitt Romney, according to media outlet In These Times, which broke the story. “The packet also included an anti-Obama editorial by Charles Koch and a pro-Romney editorial by David Koch,” it said.
In the private sector, though, such instances skew pro-Romney. The candidate himself suggested that business owners adopt this practice during a virtual town hall meeting with the National Federation of Independent Businesses back in June.
“I hope you make it very clear to your employees what you believe is in the best interest of your enterprise and therefore their job and their future in the upcoming elections,” he said, telling the audience, “Nothing illegal about you talking to your employees about what you believe is best for the business, because I believe that will figure into their election decision, their voting decision.”
Sounds like Mr. Romney is suggesting a little “fatherly” talk. Much like a mobster telling a bar owner what’s good for him and his business. Certainly, it’s not “illegal” but the baseball bat is there to reinforce the idea. If this were two African-Americans standing outside a single precinct, you would be all over this like flies on a corpse, but since it’s just a bunch of wealthy “job creators (off-shore) you ignore it.
Gentlemen, with Corporate-Americans wielding the Baseball Bat of unemployment, do you think that Working-Americans, Americans will vote their preference or their paycheck?
18 USC Chapter 96 – RACKETEER INFLUENCED AND CORRUPT ORGANIZATIONS a/k/a RICO:
(1) “racketeering activity” means (A) any act or threat involving murder, kidnapping, gambling, arson, robbery, bribery, extortion,…
if that doesn’t work, how about Voter Supression? That too, is a Federal offense.
