- Miscellaneous Topics Too Small for a Web Page -

Throughout the 1990's, women dominated the Internet and they asserted that they were the superior gender and others came to believe that. Our local libraries carried books that indoctrinated women into believing that could do almost any illegal act and get away with it. These books told women how falsely to claim abuse by calling 911 and throwing the phone out the window. So the broken window, her sobbing, and her false accusations would be more than sufficient to arrest her husband though he was never there.
I established the Abused Men’s Area with the purpose of bringing truth to an Internet which women dominated and claimed that they were superior to men. This meant, to them, that they had the right to control men and steal their property. The key point is that they enjoyed this sense of superiority because it leads to a satisfying sense of resolution and afterglow. That is why these women thought that they were the superior gender. However, other authors chose a different tack. These writers chose to connect these persons to foreign ideologies of oppression.
So some authors chose to relate these women to the Nazis and in 1989, the term ‘Feminazi’ entered our lexicon. Similarly, other authors chose to relate these women to the Chinese Communists because these particular women’s groups used Mao Zedong’s book (The Little Red Book) for their doctrinal guidance. They became the ‘Redfem’s. So while these women call themselves feminists, they are not because they oppose the Equal Rights Amendment that is the true foundation of Feminism.
Information on Sexual Assault and Sexual Battery (Rape)
Any person can become a victim of sexual assault and sexual battery and the perpetrator can be either female or male. The most important element in proving the crime is the preservation of evidence and time. Go to the nearest medical facility and get help without delay. The Federal Government and state program will pay for this. They also can arrange the payments so the victim will never have to pay the deductible portion of your private medical coverage for those who have it. This means that a victim will never have to pay for this because the government is the custodian of this evidence.

About Date and Time - The reason that I am including date and time in this essay is that I do not appreciate fudge words. One example is commonly found in police reports, ‘on or about’. Was it at 9:00 A.M. or was it between 6:00 A.M. and 12:00 P.M.? A fudge factor is an arbitrary value used to provide a sufficient margin of error to avoid commitment (a lie). Now most people measure time according to clocks, seasons, the lunar cycle, the solar cycle with many devices. People do not measure time backwards because the future holds a more urgent interest than the past. Such as when will the Nile overflow, when should I plant the crops, or when will Caesar and Cleopatra return?
In the old style of dating, A.D., is the abbreviation for Latin ‘ano Domini', which means, in the year of our Lord. In 532 A.D., the monk Dionysius Exiguus introduced a system of dating events, beginning with the year he believed Jesus Christ was born. In this system, the year of Christ's birth was A.D. 1, and the year before that was One B.C. (Before Christ). Modern scholars believe Christ was actually born by One B.C. but people still determine dates using the original system. When a writer mentions a year without using either abbreviation, readers should assume that the year was in the 'year in context'. Since there is no year zero in this dating system, so the calculation of an interval between a date in a B.C. year and the same date in an A.D. year requires two steps. Add the numbers representing the years and subtract one. There are several alternate dating systems that do not refer to Christ. There is the ‘B.C.E.’ system where Common Era (C.E.) replaces A.D. and Before Common Era (B.C.E.) replaces B.C.
There is little known fact that has its origins in astronomical observations. Long ago, civil time began at noon because people could see the sun at its highest point in the sky. That is probably how the phrase ‘high noon’ entered our language. Crossing the international date line at ‘high ‘noon’ means that it is midnight at Greenwich, England the next day.
Time is measured from the prime meridian in Greenwich, England that is located zero degrees west longitude. When a person travels west, the longitude increases and when a person travels east, the longitude decreases. The International Date Line is located at 180 degrees west longitude that is also 180 degrees east longitude. Crossing the International Date line from the east adds a day to your calendar and crossing the International Date line from the west subtracts a day from your calendar. This was fact was illustrated in Jules Verne’s novel ‘Around the World in 80 days’ when Phileas Fogg circumnavigated the world from east-to-west in 80 days.
Absence of Witnesses - That is why most women who falsely accuse men of rape and battery do it. So this is not a question about allowing females to consider their options before they decide to speak to the police; it more about the accuser making sure that no witnesses would contradict her. That is why false allegations abuse and of rape are more likely than some believe, because people use false allegations to conceal the truth and damage another’s reputation. False claims of abuse and rape are common crimes. Nevertheless, the prosecutor ignores them because the thrill is in persecuting an innocent person.
Abusive Women in Historical and Present Context - The Book of Proverbs, is a book of the Hebrew Bible and the Old Testament of the Christian Bible. According to tradition, King Solomon wrote it. This might not be true because some parts of the Book of Proverbs were written before the birth of Solomon. Some scholars believe that these notions came from various periods in the history of Ancient Israel. The many versions of the Christian Bible and are a result of language differences and presentation. Presentation often refers to the order or arrangement of material.
There are a several versions of the bible and more information is described in The World Book, 2005 Deluxe Edition. I chose the King James Version of the Holy Bible because I am more familiar with its arrangement. The concepts of false rape and adultery appear in the book of Genesis Chapter 39 while the concept of angry and brawling women appears in Proverbs. It is better to dwell in a corner of the housetop, than with a brawling woman in a wide house - Proverbs (21:9). It is better to dwell in the wilderness, than with a contentious and angry woman. - Proverbs (21:19).
Solomon’s wisdom is expressed in the First Book of Kings (3:16) through (3:27). The First Book of Kings is commonly called Third Book of Kings. The account begins with two women who came to the King and stood before him. The matter was that one woman smothered her child and claimed that the other women's child was her own. So she took the ‘my way or no way’ approach. If she could not have her own child, she wanted to make sure that the other woman could not have her own child.
Nearly all instances of newborn theft in hospitals are committed by females and most of these instances are not publicized for the sake of the child and the privacy of the parents. Battered child syndrome is a complex of physical injuries by a grossly abused child. Most of these injuries are attributed to abusive mothers or abusive females in the role of a baby sitter, nanny, or an Au Pair. This is why some families have installed miniature camcorders in their homes.
NOTE: An 'au pair' is usually young foreign female who cares for the children and does the domestic work for a family in return for room and board and the opportunity to learn the family's language. A governess is female who supervises and teaches children in a household and she is not a servant though she may live on the estate.
Accuracy, Precision, and Soap - Accuracy is the difference between the true value of a numerical expression and the expressed value. For an example, what is the value of one-third? One third can be expressed as (1/3) or (0.3333...) and most of us know that 1/3 is larger than (0.3333...). So all the precision in the world cannot make "(0.3333...)" equal to 1/3 and so "(0.3333...)" is always less than 1/3. This is also true with many other numbers. So avoid the ostentatious because these women are trying to blindside you with false statistics (One out of every three women will be abused by their husbands this year) - San Francisco Chronicle 2008.
The other use for the word ‘precision’ is the ability to reproduce a product without any variance. If a person wanted to buy a screw that they lost, they would want the screw to fit the diameter and thread of the hole where the screw would fasten the part. Anyone who had to buy a screw or a nut to fix something might know a lot more about that (my emphasis added)!
In the 1880's a chemist determined that 56/100 of the ingredients in Ivory soap was not soap. So Proctor (before it became Proctor and Gamble) wrote the slogan that its Ivory’s soap was 99 and 44/100 percent pure. In another inadvertent discovery, a workman forgot to stop the machinery that was producing the soap and air was added to the mixture. Subsequently, Proctor added to its slogan in 1891 that its Ivory soap floats. This was and still is a desirable feature, especially if you are sharing the tub.

Air Bags and Large Vehicles
- The only reason that air-bags were installed
in cars was that drivers and passengers refused to use their seatbelts,
shoulder harness, and head restraints. The head restraints were designed
to prevent whiplash that causes injury to the neck that is part of the
spinal column. If the spinal column is broken, the victim may not survive.
The problem was that air-bags were dangerous to children and small
persons. So the government decided that small
children would be placed in the back seat. Many manufacturers failed to include
the shoulder safety belt and harness assembly with an adjustable head rest for
the passengers in the back seat. Unfortunately, the head rest in the back seat
created another problem, the driver could not see either by direct observation
or with the rear view mirror. Moreover, trucks and sport utility vehicles
created another problem, they obstruct the vision of drivers in smaller
vehicles. Try backing a car from a parking place when you can’t see past
the vehicle or trailer parked next to you. The solution is this; move the parking area
for vehicles that exceed specific dimensions
to a different place so that others can safely see.
An Idea to Change the Terms of Implication to Terms of
Opposition - I do not like the words
‘defendant’ and ‘respondent’ because these words infer and imply guilt.
That is why no one should use them. The use of ‘adversary’ also falls into
acts of inference and implication. In other ways, lawyers design this
thrust of language to move jurors to believe that other evidence has been
kept from them. The problem is that the language is pejorative and
incorrect because the person who opposes the State’s claim is the
opponent. Although, 'opponent' is not used
in contemporary law, a person can insist on using it before the hearing begins.
In addition, a male litigant may oppose the use of pejorative male pronouns in
any utterance that is likely to defame him. So the problem is that although the
legal process may have exonerated him, his accuser still goes free and most
people would not know that. That is why 'Opponent' is the proper term for any
person who opposes a false accusation.

The right to speak freely is one of the most important rights that we share and remains the ultimate rendering of what we write. However, a United States District Judge has ruled that the act of lying is not a compelling reason to restrict or stop it. My point is that the founders created the First Amendment to protect political speech, religious freedom, and freedom of the press but it did not say anything about lying. This is why men have lost their rights and property to those who have lied and that is what this website is about.
Did you know that when the judicial process acquits a man of abuse, that a judge may still restrict his freedom? This means that accusers do not have to worry when they maliciously accuse their target. This is no restitution, imprisonment, or fine. So we have to make the penalties for false allegations against men higher then they are now. This does not present a Constitutional problem because the proposal removes the flaw of malicious antimale activism and restores the truth to its proper place in ideals of human conduct.
Application Testing to Find the Best Tool - There are many ways of solving a problem and application testing is designed to reveal the best way to approach a problem. The magnitude of any value is its quantity or extent. For an example, adding one to any value increases the value’s magnitude but in which direction? The direction is the extent in two’s complement addition. For an example, the addition of two and four gives six but the sum of minus two and minus four is minus six. So the problem is not so much about simple addition, the problem is expressing this concept in simple American Standard English - if there was ever such a language.
For an example, given a barometer, how does a person find the actual height of a building? One way to solve the problem is by dropping the barometer from the top of the building and measuring how much time for it to splatter on the concrete below. This would work in a complete vacuum but would fail on Earth due to the presence of atmospheric drag.
Another way to solve the problem is measuring the length of the barometer’s and the building’s shadow. Since the height of each object is proportional to the length of its shadow, the height of the building can be determined from the length the building’s and the barometer’s shadow. The easiest way to determine the height of the building is to go to the agency that issues plans and building permits and find its height. In this instance, the solution was to find the right person and ask questions.
Initially, ABO blood testing was used to ensure that a person would receive the right type of blood. This meant that the donor’s blood type had to be identical or compatible with the blood type and rhesus factor of the recipient. If this was not so, the recipient could die. Later, Human Leukocyte Antigen (HLA) testing helps physicians to determine that an organ or tissue from a donor can be safely transplanted into a particular patient. Neither test was designed to identify a specific person, they were designed to save and improve the lives of others.
The magnitude of any value is its quantity or extent. For an example, adding one to any value increases the value’s magnitude but in which direction? The direction is the extent in two’s complement addition. For an example, the addition of two and four gives six but the sum of minus two and minus four is minus six. So the problem is not so much about simple addition, the problem is expressing this concept in simple American Standard English - if there was ever such a language.
DNA testing evolved somewhat differently and I wrote a precis about that in another paper on my website. DNA testing cannot differentiate between genetically identical persons but physical evidence can such as finger prints. So application testing and physical evidence can be used to prove guilt or innocence without the use of expensive DNA testing.
For an example, if someone found the mirror image of a person’s fingerprints on a ceiling that is twelve feet high (the opposite of what they were supposed to be), then they were planted. Finger prints are mirror images. So a mirror image of a mirror image is a forgery. Also, wouldn’t the height of the ceiling that is twelve feet high be a factor especially when the person was only 5 feet and 6 inches tall? This factor is called context - the circumstances that are not a part of an event and those that are.
Armageddon and Chaos - The United States Congress had decided that females who did not attain the age of 21 years could not enlist in the military but males who had attained the age of 17 years and six months could. That was considered a feature because when he turned 18, he could be drafted into the armed services so that women and the wealthy could become wealthier.
Greetings, Your friends and neighbors have selected you ... . The women who ran the local selective service board lived up to that name, they were selective and they were no friends or neighbors of mine. Many people think that military service should be an obligation that is derivable from a country's citizenship. But others see the draft as a cheap way to reduce spending on the military so that the rich can become richer, and the poor can become poorer, maimed, or dead. According to the Veteran's Administration, 9.2 million men served in the military between 1964 and 1975. Nearly 27 million men were eligible for the draft but only 2,215,000 men drafted during the Vietnam era. The draft was credited with "encouraging" many so-called volunteers to join the military rather being drafted. When I arrived at my first duty station, an officer ragged on me but he didn’t last very long. Talk's cheap while actions mean more than words.
I would ask this, how many incursions and wars has this country as been involved in the past 120 years? So wouldn’t a better way of reducing spending be accomplished by reducing our military involvement in doubtful enterprises? This is not a new concept and others have warned of the palpable and unseemly incestuous connection between industry and the military. In 1960 our national budget showed a surplus of 301 million dollars. In 2009, the budget deficit may actually exceed 1.84 trillion dollars and some pundits estimate that the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan will last long into this century. So the only ones who benefit from these wars are the lobbyists, the wealthy, and the politicians.
Battle at Cowpens - Two Future Presidents - Colonel Ashe married early in life to Miss Eliza Montfort, daughter of Colonel Joseph Montfort of Halifax. It was she who made the celebrated retort to Colonel Tarleton, then an unwelcome guest in the house of her sister, Mrs. Willie Jones. Tarleton had been wounded on his hand by Colonel William Washington at the battle of Cowpens. He was now remarking on the literacy of Washington, saying he understood that he could hardly write his name. Mrs. Ashe replied, with a glance at Tarleton’s hand which bore the scar, "but you will at least agree that Colonel Washington can at any rate make his mark."
NOTE: George Washington and William Washington were second cousins and William Washington’s second-in-command was James Monroe who would become the fifth President of the United States.

Bayes Rule - My word processor does not have a satisfactory set of special symbols that are a formal part mathematical and logical notation. Furthermore, some web browsers and programs do not reproduce what I would write to what a reader would see. This is why I might not use standard notation. Suppose 3.9 percent of the population test positive for a particular disorder but only 1.9 percent of the population actually has the disorder. Worst yet, the test only gives a positive result for this disorder 80 percent of those who actually have this disorder. This says that :
Pr (D+) = 0.019
Pr (T+) = 0.039
Pr (T+ | D+) = 0.800
First, fill in the then known values (in yellow) and the expected value (cyan). Subtract the known values from the expected value, giving the differences (in green).
Look at the bottom row: 1.000 minus 0.019 is 0.981. Look at the rightmost column: 1.000 minus 0.039 is 0.961. Now, rewrite the table without colors and find the intersection between D+ and T+. In this case it is:
Pr (T+ x D+) = 0.800 x 0.019 = 0.0152.
Now, rewrite the table without colors. Add a trailing zero to clarify the arithmetic. Then and fill in the blanks and color them.
Solve the problem by Pr (D+ | T+) = 0.0152 / 0.390 = 0.03897. In other words, less than 3.9% who test positive for this disorder actually have it.
Bunions - Women who wear high heeled shoes with narrow toes often have bunions. A bunion is an inflamed swelling of the small fluid-filled sac on the first joint of the big toe accompanied by enlargement and protrusion of the joint. Prevention is very simple. Avoid wearing narrow pointed shoes and boots, especially those with high heels. The pain can make most anyone cranky. Beside that, these shoes can deform your feet as the Chinese women did with 'foot binding'. The shape of their feet resembled the shape of their shoes. This practice is painful and ugly.
Camcorders in the Home - Domestic Violence is a ‘she said, he said’ situation and what she says is always believed in our present society. I am now endorsing the use of miniature camcorders in homes of men who are being abused or could be abused by their wife or by other family members. These cameras are activated by voice, motion, body heat, or disruption of a signal and the camcorder time signal is based on Universal Time Coordinated (UTC).
This is an atomic clock that has very stable characteristics and is based on both atomic and astronomical measurements. These camcorders have a built-in radio receiver that decodes the time signal from the national time base radio station of the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST). The station is controlled by an atomic clock in Fort Collins, Colorado. Its accuracy and precision are millionth of a second (a microsecond).
Some might call this endorsement excessive. Most spousal abuse of husbands is done out of the presence of witnesses. Even if there are witnesses, most would take the attitude that he deserved it; what did he do to her? A camcorder cannot lie when it is using UTC as its time stamp and battery backup units are used to maintain system power during electrical outages or deliberate disruption of power. This makes it harder for an abusive woman to falsely claim abuse.
No one wants to put a camera in a room where privacy is expected but many instances of abuse do occur while the husband is sleeping. One solution is to have separate bedrooms but that might not be practical. Another solution is a remote control device disables or enables the camera. There are two types of alarm systems one type is hard wired and the type is wireless. Wireless units are useful in a home, in an apartment, or in a condominium. You may want check with the apartment owner or the landlord or the condominium association to determine what kind alarm system is approved. In hard wired homes, you may what to check with local authorities, such as the building inspector, to determine what kind of alarm system is approved. You may be required to have a building permit and an inspection local authorities.
Most home based camcorders use long play tape or DVR technology because DVR's can record and store 40 or more hours of information. Some manufacturers have also developed systems that record programs on special DVD's, discs of the same size as compact discs, but can hold far more high quality information. Recording most anything in your home is legal. That is why some people install wireless cameras and recorders in their home.
Check - The check itself is not a confidential communication but it could be a negotiable instrument with a confidential purpose, for an example, buy two lanterns. See Paul Revere.
Civil Disobedience - There is something good about moral opposition to an unjust state.
Common Web Page Format - Each web page will have common properties so that I can make each page consistent and readable, and at other times, unique. For an example, a page may consist entirely of text while another page may have text and visual representations such as charts, diagrams, and photographs. Clicking File Properties in the File Selection will show three sections of interest: General, Background, and Custom.
In the General Section the only item of interest is the Web Page’s title. As with any title, it is supposed to tell the reader something about the material to be presented.
The Background Section is used to describe the page’s background appearance. For an example, a writer may what a light grey or tan background or use a patterned background that is sometimes called a wall paper. There is a special background called a ‘water mark’ that imitates a marking or design in paper produced by a processing roll or mold. It is visible when the paper is held to a light and its texture can be felt by the hand. The most common example of a kind of water mark is embedded in currency.
The Custom Section allows a person to define ‘User Variables’. As this expression explicitly indicates, User Variables are invented by the person creating the Web Page to attract potential readers and help ‘search engines’ to find a web page that meets the user’s requirements. For an example, I use the Custom Section for ‘Keywords’, ‘Content’, and ‘Description’. Microsoft uses the Custom Section for Generator and ProgID. On my system, the Generator is "Microsoft FrontPage 5.0" and the ProgID is "FrontPage.Editor.Document".

Consent is the Deciding Evidence - Using data collected in 2006, the Justice Department guessed that women had reported only 41 percent of the sexual assaults on them. This is a strange statistic because sexual assault is usually associated with an attempt to rape, that is difficult to quantify, while sexual battery is the actual act of rape. This is how it occurs. Suppose two persons have consensual intercourse. Then later, one party (usually the female) decides to turn the issue into rape. In the past, it was matter of whom to believe (she said, he said) and it did not make any difference whether she claimed rape immediately or years later. He was guilty and to prove it the Federal Government decided to allow the use of ‘Jane Doe’ rape kits. This meant that a woman who had consented to sexual intercourse with some man years ago could accuse a man of rape.
Cycle of Abuse - A person who abuses others is often self absorbed with themselves and with the power they crave. They are narcissistic in the sense that they believe that they are superior and often have extreme contempt towards the rights and needs of others. The following four drawings illustrate the worsening cycle of abuse. The first and last elements are always related such that the last precedes the first. The following row shows the five stages in the cycle of abuse. The first and last elements, regression to old behavior followed by mood swings, are related.
|Mood swings and increasing tension||
|Rekindles the relationship||Regresses to old behavior|
The second stage is characterized by the lack of genuine remorse. The abuser is now enjoying the emotional damage that he or she is inflicting on their partner or relative.
|Mood swings and increasing tension||
|Rekindles the relationship||Regresses to old behavior.|
The third stage is often called the pins and needles component of the worsening cycle of abuse because the victim never knows when the abuser will offend again.
|Mood swings and increasing tension||
|Regresses to old behavior|
By the last stage, the abuser is completely seduced by their own sense of omnipotence and supremacy. They have become addicted to their own exhilarating abusive power over their victims. When their victim tries to end the relationship and escape the abuse, abusers often pose as a victim to punish their prey.
Not all abusive persons follow the worsening cycle of abuse but many do. This presentation is one of many patterns of behavior found in abusive relationships. End the relationship upon the first episode of abuse.

Dealing With Propaganda - Propaganda must be easy to remember and understand. So propagandists often use rhyming or catchy slogans to be repeated constantly. Adolf Hitler wrote that the intelligence of the masses is small and their forgetfulness is so great that they must be told the same thing a thousand times. These people share the same belief and this is why they repeatedly publish the same propaganda again. The only difference between these persons and Joseph Goebbels is that they make their big lie larger.
The use of symbols involves words and illustrations that bring strong responses from people. Individuals react not only to the actual meaning of words and the actual content of pictures but also to the feelings aroused by such symbols. For example, nearly all cultures have favorable reactions to a picture of a mother and baby or to such words as homeland and justice. This is why propagandists try to create an association in people's minds between such symbols and the messages they are trying to spread. Powerful negative images are frequently used to increase prejudice, hostility, and hatred toward the desired targets of their propaganda. So with their own malevolent purpose, they deliberately exaggerate the importance of some facts and twist the meaning of others. They try to conceal facts that might prevent the response they seek from people while trying to shift attention away from embarrassing facts that cannot be hidden.
Deliberate lying is relatively rare as a propaganda technique because propagandists fear their lies might be discovered and they might lose their audience's trust. Propaganda usually includes some accurate information so that they can deceive their audience. A lie of addition, alteration, deception, or omission remains a lie. This is what to do. Find the source and determine its reliability. Remember that those who refuse to provide details or identify their sources can be highly unreliable. Of course, when someone writes about their own experiences, then attribution is not required.
Deliberate Misrepresentation (1) - In one example, others have claimed that a husband could use his wife’s immigration status to abuse her by refusing to sign the necessary documents or he could revoke them. The point is that only the Immigration and Naturalization Service has the power to decide those issues. If a person does not agree to the terms and conditions in a document, they can refuse to sign them. Of course, any judge can alter the document and so it becomes a forgery that is usually then used to deprive a man of his property. Everyone has the right to refuse to sign a document that is fictitious, illegal, or that would impair their own interests. Moreover, only those parties who signed the document can revoke it but that is not always possible. For an example, a court may decide that a particular document that is so heavily one-sided that it could not be the result of a voluntary agreement. Instead it was a writing that was so restrictive that it left no other choice.
Deliberate Misrepresentation (2) - The only way that a citizen of this country may lose their citizenship is through a renouncement before a Unites States diplomatic officer abroad or an appropriate official in the United States. While some would argue that undocumented immigrants are using the law to gain citizenship that is not quite true. Most of these immigrants have ties to their country of birth and have no reason to disavow those ties. Moreover, if they do marry a U.S. citizen and that marriage continues for ten years, they can remain in this country. This also means that they can collect benefits that are a result of that marriage and then return to their native country where the cost of living is much lower.
Diaries - Can they be used against you? (Forth Amendment) - Previously, the Supreme Court held that the Forth Amendment protected an individual from unreasonable searches and seizures. The amendment said that the people had the right to be secure in their persons (meaning body searches) and in their houses, papers, and effects from unreasonable searches and seizures. This meant that the government had no right to go on a ‘fishing expedition’ to determine whether a potential defendant had violated the law. The amendment was clear on this part
This meant that prosecutors could not compel a person to produce documents that could incriminate them. The problem then was that prosecutors could assume that a document was incriminating when, in fact, the document could be nothing of value or that the document was constructed with the intent to mislead. So the question is now who controls a person's private diary?
The effort to compel production of personal diaries provokes strong reaction from many millions of Americans who keep their most intimately personal musings in their diaries. However, once a diary is subject to the whims of the courts, then there will be no protection from the prying of a persistent and venal prosecutor. But the Supreme Court says that the Fifth Amendment does not protect the contents of documents, especially in matters of published libel. Does this mean that the government can compel a person to divulge their personal writings, records, or opinions that may subject them to personal liability?
The Fifth Amendment could protect the creation of documents when it resulted in the disclosure of incriminating personal communication in a ledger or diary and that proves that the document actually existed. The point is that although the document exists, its contents may or may not be true. The reason for this is that many people keep personal diaries for their own purposes and most do not intend them to be read by others. Moreover, there is nothing in the law that compels a direst to tell the truth if he or she never intends to publish it. In fact, much of our literature is written either as a commentary, a story, log, or a diary. Melville’s "Moby Dick" is an example, along with Lindberg’s ‘Spirit of St. Louis’.
Diaries - Can they be used against you? (Fifth Amendment) -Previously, the Supreme Court held that the Fifth Amendment protected an individual from having to produce their personal documents. This meant that prosecutors could not compel a person to produce documents that could result in self incrimination. The problem then was that prosecutors could assume that a document was incriminating when, in fact, the document could be nothing of value. The alternate hypothesis is that they constructed the document with the intent to mislead. So the question is now who controls a person's private diary? Evidently, the courts do. After all, they are the ones who want to pry.
Now the Supreme Court says that the Fifth Amendment does not protect the contents of the documents, especially in matters of published libel. As a side note, some dictionaries do not make the distinction between published libel and uttered slander. The point is that the Fifth Amendment could protect the creation of documents when that act resulted in the disclosure of incriminating personal communication as a ledger or diary. So the act of producing these documents became proof that the document existed. So although the document exists, its contents may or may not be true. The reason for this is that many people keep personal diaries for their own purposes and most do not intend that others would read them. That would be and is a breach of trust.
This is the reason that any effort to compel production of personal diaries provokes strong reaction from many millions of Americans who keep their most intimately personal musings in their diaries. Once a diary is subject to the whims of the courts, then no place would provide protection from the prying of a persistent and venal prosecutor.
Divorce, Women, and Income - According to ABC News, women lose about 45% of their income after divorce. That means that their husbands were earning 55% of the family’s income and so the claim that women were earning 75 cents for every dollar that a man earned was not really true. So these women are now single and possibly without dependents and the government sees this as an opportunity to fleece the unmarried population. So when I worked for several major defense contractors in the 1970's, I had to refuse a raise because I would be losing more money to taxes than I would receive in spendable income. This was not an instance where my earnings failed to increase. I was in a situation where my real income declined because I was not married.
Divorce and Women - If divorce is bad for women, then why do they file more than 80% of the divorce cases? The reason is clear, they get the home, the children, and nearly everything that their husband has. On the other hand, he gets the bills and an undeserved reputation. Many courthouses have special packets for women and paralegals to help them. She signs the forms and her husband no longer has a home but he still has to pay the bills and her legal fees. This is called sexism - discrimination against men.
Due Process: Due process refers to formal legal proceedings that occur regularly according to previously established rules and the precepts that support those rules. It also requires that the laws do not contain provisions that result in unfair or unreasonable treatment of any person. Since the government created the problem of false allegations, its victims are entitled to receive substantive due processes. That is why probable cause is the required element for arrest. However, this also means that any increase in the number of false allegations lowers any standard that depends on probable cause as a required element of arrest. So by increasing the number of arrests, the legal standard for probable cause becomes lower. So at some point, the police could arrest persons for being male. This is why the alleged victim and the arresting office must authenticate their reports under the penalty for perjury. The proof must lay with the accuser and not with the accused. However, in many jurisdictions, neither the accuser nor the officer has to attest the truthfulness of their own words and reports. This omission shows that the authorities expected them to lie.
Embassies - Embassies are located in the sovereign territory of the host country and the Vienna Convention states that the local government foreswears the right to enter an embassy. Diplomatic immunity protects the diplomats who are working inside. This means that an building can be a host to several consulates and embassies and other establishments. Embassies are usually located in the capitol of the host country or close by. Consulates are usually placed in other important regions of the host country.
Encryption Software - Sophisticated encryption software has surpassed government's ability to seize computers and gather evidence in criminal cases. The problem is that current safeguards and cryptographic software can make it nearly impossible for anyone but the owner to use their computer. So the issue has become this, can the government force a person to make his computer available for government inspection, although it might incriminate the owner?
To begin, computers can be protected by passwords because this is a common feature in most operating systems. However, these features have raised questions about whether turning over a computer password amounts to a Fifth Amendment violation against self-incrimination. So the question is this, can a court order a defendant to turn over an unencrypted version of the hard drive on their computer? However, the problem is that the defendant may be unable to produce a decrypted hard drive and the person who did encrypt the computer is not on trial. Furthermore, the encryption method may include a ‘trap door’ that prevents decryption.
Federal prosecutors argue that such features prevent the government’s access to private encrypted computers and that makes it impossible for them to prosecute child exploitation, drug trafficking, and terrorism. But that raises a problem because once they have the key, anything that rises from that process is suspect because the prosecutors now have the key that they didn’t have before. In other words, they changed the circumstances and now they can change the computer’s hard drive storage to contain what they want to plant or remove.
Reportedly a judge ordered a person to turn over an unencrypted copy of their hard drive. This raises problems because a person might not know what was on the hard drive of their computer. Moreover, the encryption might not lie in the data but how the data is used. For an example, the data can be pseudo or intermediate instructions for an interpreted program. Then there are other programs that rely on recursive methods such as the rendering of fractals.
So it is possible that an innocuous data stream can produce an image that may resemble a figure much like an inkblot might resemble a horse. The point is that a person may be unable to make an unencrypted copy of their hard drive. So if the government’s case relies upon what is on a hard drive, then they might have no case at all because the government has no idea what is on the computer. That’s called a ‘fishing expedition’ and people have a right to keep private matters, private.
Europe is not a continent - but is a part of a larger land mass called Asia. Asia is not a true continent but is joined by Africa. The Americas are a true continent from north to south and the isthmus at Panama is simply a valuable man-made shortcut that extends about 51 miles from Limon Bay on the Atlantic Ocean to the Bay of Panama on the Pacific Ocean. The interesting part is that a ship traveling from the Atlantic Ocean to the Pacific Ocean leaves the Panama canal about 27 miles east from where it entered. In the United States, there is a notion of a continental divide. The Rocky Mountains do not divide anything. Water flows in a direction of the least impediment except in the notion called the great flood and the ‘divine propensity’ has nothing to do with whatever that is.
So the great continents are these: the African, Asian, European complex (1), the North and South American complex (2), Antarctica (3), and Australia (4). This does not change the fact that Pluto is, and will always be a planet. In the United States, there is a notion of a continental divide. The Rocky Mountains do not divide anything. Water flows in a direction of the least impediment except in the notion called the great flood and the ‘divine propensity’ has nothing to do with whatever that is. This does not change the fact that Pluto is, and shall always be a planet.
- False accusations by women serve a purpose and it
is called self gratification. A few months ago, Gloria Steinem said that
the legal system is biased against women. However, she failed to mention
the shield laws that allow women to refuse to testify while preventing males
from introducing evidence that may reflect on her past or current behavior.
The point is that most false accusations by women are not always made to avoid
guilt. They are made to assert their supremacy while giving them leverage
in any controversy. So while male litigants are restricted in what they
may ask of a female, no such restriction is afforded to men without invoking his
constitutional rights and this raises the ‘symbolic red flag of guilt’.
This is why so many false allegations are made to avoid guilt while other false claims are more likely to be focused on asserting personal supremacy over another. So false allegations are instrumental because they are a part of achieving that goal and this is the behavior of a person who derives pleasure from their own disparaging sensual sadism.
The reason that women wait for years before coming out of proverbial woodwork and cast false light is that it is personally and sometimes financially rewarding without much risk. Defamation of character has been one of Ms. Steinem’s favorite tools and she and other persons would do most anything to get their own way. So false allegations of sexual harassment are similar to fish stories, they get bigger and less true as the lie continues.
Furlongs per Fortnight - This is a particular value that cannot be expressed by a finite number of divisions. It is equivalent to 15.714285... . This unit of measure is sometimes used when other factors do not work but leaving the miracle factor that is often expressed by ‘then a miracle occurs’. This is then followed by ‘quod erat demonstrandum (Q.E.D.) and the cunning professor leaves the actual proof for the student to resolve - sine spe.
Gaslight - As a young girl, Paula lived with her aunt Alice Alquist, a famous entertainer. At some point, Paula discovered her aunt's murdered body and the police failed to find the killer. Paula inherited her aunt's estate, including the home, and went away to school. The story begins ten years later.
Paula meets Gregory Anton, a charming smooth manipulator. They marry and go to live in Paula's home in London. Anton controls the money and the household and increasingly isolates her. He blames her for taking or losing items in a plot contrived by him. He presents himself to others as the caring, loving husband of a chronically ill and hysterical wife while he deviously drives her to the edge of insanity.
Paula's plight comes to the attention of a sympathetic Scotland Yard inspector who recalled Paula and admired her aunt. The rest of the story unfolds in a classic case of spousal abuse by projection and self-gratification. See the motion picture, Gaslight, Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer (1944). Based Upon The Play by Patrick Hamilton.
Gender Equity - An article appeared in the San Francisco Chronicle Wednesday, April 27, 2005, by columnists Matier and Ross entitled ‘Center for Gender Equity makes some more equal than others’. It seems that the University of California at San Francisco Center for Gender Equity is not equitable. They called the activity ‘Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work Day’. Ms. Amy Levine, the center's director, said that the event was not a career day. As reported, she said that the program is not intended to give boys and girls the same learning opportunities. The nine and ten-year-old girls were invited to participate in 17 hands-on activities ranging from using microscopes and other equipment to disaster preparedness and how to use a fire extinguisher.
However, the boys were indoctrinated in gender equity (a worthless diatribe) and where was any equity in this? It was certainly not impartiality. The role of a teacher is to bring out the best and finest qualities in their students. To see beyond what they are and reach out and help others. The word I choose is insight and not dogma, for the role of a teacher is to bring out the best in everyone. However, this was and is not the role of these women.
I borrowed a book from the Vallejo Public Library titled ‘Why Boys Don’t Talk and Why It Matters‘ [sic]. This book was written by Susan Morris Shaffer and Linda Perlman Gordon, ISBN 0-07-141787-7. The book claims that Shaffer is a nationally acclaimed gender equity specialist with more than thirty years of experience. A bar chart titled "Violence Is Gender Issue" appears on page 61. According to this chart, females commit approximately two to 10 percent of violent crimes in six different categories. When someone beats around the bush, you know that they have an ulterior motive.
These women claimed that boys learn more slowly than girls and their claim is false. Every person learns at their own rate. Instructors must understand this and work to bring out the best in every student. A student may seem to struggle and plod along. Then one day, that student undergoes a change that we call ‘the epiphany’ - the sudden perception and understanding of the nature and meaning of the material and lessons. Ms. Amy Levine admits that she does not intend to give boys and girls the same learning opportunities. Instead, Ms. Levine wants to indoctrinate these boys in gender equity. So when a child is exposed to such rubbish, there should be no question why these boys cannot achieve in a hostile environment.
As a result, children cannot flourish and so the hatred of males is called ‘gender equity’ in Levine's abusive ideology. Working together as equals is the essence of a free society. Ms. Levine could have taught that every person has equal social, political, legal, and economic rights. She also could have taught that each person has private and social obligations to others and those obligations are greater than one's own selfish interests. This advocacy comes from the realization that one's own conduct affects the lives of others.
So Ms. Levine rewarded poor to mediocre performance while punishing better or exceptional performance. Historically, a boy’s academic achievement is often downgraded by his behavior while a girl’s academic performance is often upgraded by her complete lack of performance. This is why many qualified young men do not enter college and complete their degree because of the hostile atmosphere that is so evident in many schools, colleges and universities.
Their form of indoctrination is predicated on the dogmatic tenets of self-invented beliefs rather than the requirements of individual responsibility. Their doctrine goes forward with presentation that human rights are not important. The proponents of this false doctrine seek to transmute the notion of individual obligations and rights to the notion of collective rights without obligation. Ancient mythology is often allegorical that has basis in historical fact. Accounts of wicked and contentious women are historical fact. Greek mythology tells of the Gorgons: Stheno, Euryale, and Medusa, the daughters of Ceto and Phorcus.
Kathleen King Goodfriend subjected a child to physical and psychological torture that nearly destroyed a family who loved their children. A more recent example is Child Sexual Abuse: Intervention and Treatment Issues by Kathleen Coulborn Faller under a grant by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services where she expounds her prejudice against a child’s father. Her work is that of her own refusal to find the truth. When Ms. Faller cannot convince a child’s mother that the child’s father raped their child, she considers the child’s mother as ‘unworkable’. As to the other complaint that some men use code words, today's code words are 'rhubarb' and 'rubbish'.
Gender Identity - Dr. John Money, of Johns Hopkins, presented the notion that gender identity is socially malleable and not fixed. In other words, males can be changed into females by training. Dr. Money was wrong and this led to suicide of a child. Gender identity is more likely determined within the womb by hereditary factors that are not completely understood and Dr. Darshak Sanghvi explains this in his work, ‘A Map of the Child’, ISBN 0-8050-6724-8. I was not satisfied with the hippocampus theory that received much attention some years ago. I do not know why some choose same gender intimate relationships yet I am compelled to recognize that such relationships exist and can be good. In his book, ‘Gender Matters’, ISBN 0-385-51073-X, Dr. Leonard Sax wrote about the terms ‘gender’ and ‘sex’. In his writing on page 252 was something did not see before, a monograph by the National Academies. I agree with Dr. Sax.
The monograph states that sex is a dichotomous biological variable. Humans are either male or female. I disagree with that statement. The chromosomes that determine sex are found in both males and females. The only difference is that females only have ‘xx’ gender determining chromosome pairs and males have only ‘xy’ gender determining chromosome pairs. Both mother and father of a child contributes one-half their chromosome pairs to the child. So it is the biological father that determines the gender of a child, ‘xx’ for females and ‘xy’ for males. However, a child’s genitalia may be vague or inappropriate to the child’s genetic inheritance. One condition is called Congenital Adrenal Hyperplasia or ‘CAH’. Dr. Sanghvi explains this in ‘A Map of the Child’, pages 215 -223. The National Academies monograph also states that gender is a continuous variable. Gender is socially constructed. Humans can be mostly feminine, mostly masculine, or anything between. Dr. Sax and I try to avoid the term ‘sex’ because it often overused and misused, so I use the term ‘gender’ to bring greater clarity. Many others have arrived at the same thought and so Dr. Money’s theory remains wrong.
Greetings -Your friends and neighbors have selected you ... . The United States Congress had decided that females who did not attain the age of 21 years could not voluntarily enlist in the military. However, males who had attained the age of 17 years and six months could enlist in the military. That was to be considered a feature because when he turned 18, he could be drafted into the armed services. The women who ran the local selective service board lived up to that name, they were selective and they were no friends or neighbors of mine. Many people believed that military service was an obligation that is derivable from a country's citizenship. But others saw the draft as a cheap way to reduce spending on the military so that the rich can become richer and the rest of us would become poor, maimed, or dead.
According to the Veteran's Administration, 9.2 million men served in the military between 1964 and 1975. Nearly 27 million men were eligible for the draft but only 2,215,000 men drafted during the Vietnam era. The draft was credited with "encouraging" many so-called volunteers to join the military rather being drafted. When I arrived at my first duty station, an Air Force Captain called me a draft dodger because had I enlisted. I disabused him of that notion when I addressed him as Mister.
In 1960 our national budget showed a surplus of 301 million dollars and in 2009, the budget deficit is estimated to be about 1.84 trillion dollars. Some pundits estimate that the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan will last long into this century. The only ones who benefit from these wars are the lobbyists, the wealthy, and the politicians. From 1890 to 2009, the United States has been involved in more than 150 separate wars and military incursions. This is no time for the timid. The real story is about the beginning of what lays ahead. Will you join and stop these wars and make that difference?
Gestures - Some gestures that would be acceptable in some countries would not be acceptable in others. In some countries, finger pointing would be an affront while an open hand with the palm up would be acceptable. A thumb and finger gesture forming a circle and meaning ‘OK’ here, would be an obscene gesture elsewhere. In other places, the act of sitting so that your foot points to a person’s head can be a very serious insult.
High Colonic - A cure for those who are full of it.
Highjacking - Highjacking occurs when a person selects hyperlink that takes them to a site that is posing as the real one.
Icons - To rename an Icon, right click it and change its name or description.
Insight - One day, some years ago, a friend asked me for a proof of the Pythagorean Theorem. The next day, I gave her the proof and was this: Construct a square and then construct an inner square such that each corner of the inner square coincides with a congruent point on each side of the outer square. This produces four congruent right triangles and an inner square within the outer square. All we had to do was exclude those four congruent right triangles.
The hypotenuse of each of the four congruent right triangles forms a side of the inner square and they are identified by the letter ‘c’. The base of each triangle is identified by the letter ‘b’ and the remaining sides are identified by the letter ‘a’. The area of the outer square is (a+b)2 = a2 + 2ab + b2. The area of the inner square is c2. The area of a right triangle is abs/2. The total area of all four triangles is 2ab. Subtracting the four triangles gives c2 = a2 + b2.
My proof was original and was my own but I could not believe that was the first one to discover it. Many years later, I found it was Bhaskara’s proof 12th century [CE], that I had never seen before. This phenomenon is called insight, the realization of simplicity. The Greeks were not the first to understand, ‘that in a right-angled triangle, the square of the hypotenuse is equal to the sum of the squares on the other two sides’. The unique form of this proof called Hsuan-Thu. This proof is shown in the ancient Chinese text ‘Chou pei Suan Ching’ that could be more than three thousand years old.
The ancient Egyptians probably knew about it because they did and had to resurvey crop land after each flooding of the Nile river. The Egyptians also built pyramids. The ancient Chinese knew this because they also surveyed land and built structures. Nearly every literate civilization probably understood the principle through the study of geometry and numbers. They may have used an iterative method to solve the square root problem. Please see ‘Mathematics: From the Birth of Numbers’ by Jan Gullberg (IBSN 0-393-04002-X) page 436. I did see ancient Chinese and Mongolian symbols in their glyphs and their text.
Identification Cards - Any person who pays by check or by credit card may have to produce identification that they are the person who has the authority to tender the instrument. The reason is that checks and credit cards are simply promises to pay at some future date. However, this country’s currency is the only legal-tender for all debts. This means that a person cannot refuse payment after a legal buyer had tendered payment. Neither state nor federal law requires everyone to carry an identification card. However, if a person is in the military, they must carry their military ID and their ‘dog tags’. Other persons may have to carry some kind of identification while they are at work. However, most policies are usually work related and so they are not applicable to most people. Moreover, federal and state laws do not require a person to produce their identification to just anyone. Any person who demands identification must prove that they have the legal authority to do it. This means that they must have both the need to know, and the right to know, because satisfying only one requirement is insufficient to entitle the other. Remember that state identification cards and drivers’ licenses may contain information that anyone could sell or give to others without your knowledge or permission.
Innocence - You don’t have many suspects who are innocent of a crime. That’s contrary. If a person is innocent of a crime, then he is not a suspect. U.S. Attorney General (1985-1988). Edwin Meese resigned in disgrace due to his role in the Wedtech Scandal.
Juries - Juries are simply a collection of people who have been selected to decide an issue. In criminal cases, their verdict must be unanimous. A jury can be of any size. However, they usually range from three to twelve persons. A Grand or large juries are generally used to decide policy issues rather than guilt and they may consist of more than twenty-five individuals. According to recent information, grand juries are becoming a relict of past ages.
Jury Duty - Failure to Appear - The typical pay and allowances for a Solano County Court Judge is $233,405 per year. We pay them despite their conduct and their failure to appear. How much do judges receive in your county? Apparently, an honest decision requires more money and avarice is well received. How honest do you want our judges to be?
Most courts take a person’s failure to appear as a serious matter. Most of us are familiar with jury duty, not only can it be a waste of time but some courts charge potential jurors with parking fees. Imagine upholding your civic duty and being charged for parking while judges and others park without charge and at taxpayer expense. I have seen courthouses that include parking meters and signs that threaten heavy fines for not feeding the parking meter with other signs that promise that the meter collectors will not tamper with the meters. Those signs would be unnecessary if courthouse officials and county employees did not tamper with the meters.
Potential jurors in Solano County are required to appear at one of several courtrooms at the county seat that is located in Fairfield, California. Then they are required to sit and watch a long boring prerecorded presentation on their responsibilities and good citizenship. After that, an official decides to ask this large group of potential jurors if any of them are not citizens of the United States. This is what I call the ‘Oh by the way lead in comment’ and this leads to more questions and unanticipated qualifications. Imagine trying to answer 250 pages of questions that delve into your private life. Some matters are private and must remain private. Those 250 pages of questions are designed to select a jury that will be favorable or disposed to a predetermined outcome and they are not designed to encourage a search for the truth.
In the opening statements, the prosecution’s opening statement comes first. Then the defense presents its opening statement and the prosecution makes the last opening statement that is often given in rebuttal. So the prosecution has the first word and the last word. The defense’s opening statements are sandwiched and obscured by the prosecution’s endless boring litany of disconnected facts and factual prevarications. This gives the prosecution an unfair advantage.
The reason that we have juries is to prevent the prosecution, with its limited immunity, from taking advantage of those who have limited resources to defend themselves. A trial including legal representation, private investigation, finding witnesses, and court and legal fees can cost more than the average person can earn in ten or more years. Too many persons have pled guilty to a crime they did not commit because they could not afford to prove their innocence. That has to change and that is why we are here.
Kalina vs. Fletcher - In 1997, Justice John Paul Stevens wrote the unanimous opinion of the Supreme Court in ‘Kalina vs. Fletcher (522 U.S. 118 (1997)’. The Court ruled that Section 1983 creates a remedy against a prosecutor who makes false declarations in a written statement made under an oath. Doctrine of absolute prosecutorial immunity does not protect such conduct. Even if that person is an attorney, the only function the person performs is that of a witness. I hope that ‘Kalina vs. Fletcher (522 U.S. 118 (1997)’ remains in place.
Legal Fictions - Legal fictions are assumptions made by courts that something is true when it is not. It is a set of fictions presumed by law for judicial convenience. They are used to avoid difficulties in the operation of a law, where the circumstance it governs has changed but its wording has remained the same. An example is the use of personal pronouns to conform to gender (‘her’ or ‘him’).
Legal fictions occur when a legislative body has no legal power to work beyond a certain time but has more work to accomplish. So they simply turn the clock back. If a family needed a male heir, in ancient Rome, they solved the problem through the legal fiction of adoption. In England, when courts handling civil cases were full, a criminal court could reduce the load by pretending that the defendant in a simple civil suit had been arrested and was in custody.
In common law, only a natural person could sue or be sued. This was not a problem when the business was a partnership or sole proprietorship because the owner or owners were liable for the debts of the business. However, a corporation is a fictitious person that is separate from its members. So instead of being able to sue an individual, the aggrieved party has to sue the corporation.
In adoption, once an Order or Judgment of Adoption is entered, the biological parents become legal strangers to the child. On the other hand, the adoptive parents become the legal parents of the child and so the child's new birth certificate is also legally fictitious.
Losing your home through Extortion - A man can be ordered by the courts to leave his home that he owned before his marriage. While most states recognize separate property, they also realize that it can be used as leverage that would strip a man of his real and personal property. This is often done through extortion and the simple alteration of documents that he had signed in good faith and it happens all too frequently. I have not seen any records that any female has been prosecuted for her lying or her failure to appear. That proves the existence of persistent misandrious attitudes in our courts.
Lying And Misandry - An example of this occurred Monday, January 27, 1997 in a chiropractor’s office in Concord, California. The problem was that these two women who were supposed to evaluate my disability were not physicians or chiropractors but churlish impostors. They said that I was drunk and on drugs and reported this (their fabrication) to the state. The strange part was they did a nystagmus test from across the room at a distance of more than 12 feet and so they had extraordinary vision. Nystagmus is the rapid involuntary oscillation of the eyeballs and several forms of this disorder exists. Nevertheless, the State refused to acknowledge my disability because of the fraud of these malicious females and their associates in the state's administration. Later that year (October 1997), physicians discovered that I had Polycythemia Vera and Wolfe-Parkinson-White Syndrome and the State ignored my disabilities but they would not let me drive a car. See Banned from the Library.
Mandatory Arrest - Mandatory arrest policies require that police to detain an alleged perpetrator when there is probable cause that a domestic battery has occurred, despite the evidence to the contrary. Probable cause consists of the belief that a crime has been committed and more likely than not that the male assailant had committed it. (The phrase, ‘more likely than not’ is a phrase that refers to something expected, plausible, acceptable, feasible, or believable and so it is a prior assumption that has nothing to do with the present facts.)
The problem was that these policies actually resulted in far more false arrests than for any other crime. This, in turn, had lead to mandatory prosecutions that proceeded without any basis or evidence that anything occurred except the word of the female accuser. The problem was that subsequent studies revealed that these women were far more violent and abusive than anyone had believed and yet the evidence of this was in front of them. Children were far safer with their father than with their mother and women were far more likely to falsely accuse their husband of sexual child abuse.
By the 1980s, DNA testing had sufficiently evolved to become a major asset in determining guilt or innocence. However, many law enforcement officials were more concerned with gaining a victory over a nonexistent foe (males) rather than seeking the truth. Moreover, the data showed that as mandatory prosecutions had increased, the numbers of false allegations of abuse had also increased. Today a woman's false allegations remain her weapons of choice because prosecutors prefer it and that is why both continue to retain legal immunity.
Material Alteration (1) - In ‘Actual Innocence’ Mr. Scheck, Neufeld, and Dwyer devoted an entire chapter about the doubtful reliability of informants who trade false information for reduced criminal sentences or other favors. For an example, Nail had voided a criminal conviction after a private meeting. On September 3, 2001, the Vallejo Times Herald said that Nail and Paulson face disqualification in an ongoing three-year matter. Apparently, Mr. Nail voided some criminal convictions at the request of the police and the trial will begin this month (July 2003). Mr. Nail reportedly said that throwing out convictions at the request of police was rare for him. He also said that he could not specifically remember voiding the convictions. Although Mr. Nail had clearly altered documents, this has been the practice of attorneys in the Solano County Courts.
Material Alteration (2) - On August 30, 2001, the Vallejo Times-Herald told of the falsification of evidence by forensic chemist Joyce Gilchrist that lead to the wrongful conviction and execution of a man. Laura Schile discovered the fabrication and was forced to resign from the Oklahoma City forensic lab citing a hostile work environment. This is proof that officials are more interested in supporting corruption rather than destroying it.
On September 3, 2001, the Vallejo Times Herald reported that Mike Nail and Paulson face disqualification in an ongoing three-year matter. Apparently, Mr. Nail voided some criminal convictions at the request of the police and the trial will begin this month (July 2003). Mr. Nail reportedly said that throwing out convictions at the request of police was rare for him. He also said that he could not specifically remember voiding the convictions. Nail had clearly altered, replaced, or destroyed documents, no one held him responsible for his crimes.
In the O.J. Simpson trial, prosecution witnesses had constantly answered questions with ‘I do not recall’. However, the court did not allow the defense to make the connection to the admission of guilt. Of course, Judge Ito’s erasures did not add to the facts. He simply wanted to ensure that the tapes only contained what he wanted.
Prosecutors convict innocent people for self-gratification, higher social status, and money. Of course they are not alone. They have the help of dishonest cops, jailhouse informants, and crooked crime lab workers such as Fred Zain, Pamela Fish, and Joyce Gilchrist. These three crime lab technicians received glowing recommendations and other career boosts. The recent discoveries (April 2010) at a San Francisco crime lab show that law enforcement procedures have not changed much. These people are still tampering and destroying evidence and reporting wrongdoing can hurt a person's career.
Matriarchy - A Matriarchy is a state, family, or group headed and governed by a matriarch (female). It is a system where decent and inheritance are traced through the female line. Most matriarchies tend to be consensual except in matters of caste, then their power is tyrannical and absolute.
Matriarchy - The Doctrine of Female Privilege - A propagandist once observed that if they repeat a lie often enough, it will eventually become accepted as the truth. Likewise, the suppression of the truth only advances lie. Some women lie to suppress the truth. So these women and their advocates invariably portray men as abusers and women as victims. This false notion appears in the widely used but discredited Duluth Model and its variants. Since men are an integral part of society, these women want to change our society into a female oligarchy in which a small inner-circle exercises dictatorial control. That is the problem in that the ruling power belongs to a few select persons and so freedom does not exist for the rest. That is why they speak of collective rights when they should be taking personal responsibility. After all, that is the essence of integrity.
Parts of stone age (Neolithic) Europe, North Africa, and South Western Asia embraced religious ideas based on the worship of a single mother deity who was omnipotent and immortal. The moon's three phases of new, full, and old represented the goddess' menstrual cycle: renewal, fertile, and cleansing. The sun's repeating annual cycles symbolized the goddess' physical and maternal power: Spring - renewal, Summer - the peak, and Winter - the decline. These sects similarly characterized the life stages of a mortal female as: air - the maiden, earth and water - the mother, and the underworld - the crone.
These early matriarchies held that the sacredness of the triad and the threefold triad proved the goddess' divinity. The adherents adopted this belief in many variations. Some sects worshiped a queen who they believed was the goddess' mortal twin or her living representative. Other sects worshiped the divine goddess and nine living priestesses who represented the goddess' threefold of her three states of being. At least one sect adopted this belief that included a queen who was the goddess' living representative and nine priestesses who were the 'threefold of threefold'. At first, they espoused the belief that only the winds and rivers impregnated women. So the symbolic goddess - the queen, and her priestesses took male lovers only for their erotic pleasures. When these sects eventually acknowledged that males were essential to childbearing, men's status gradually changed.
Such matriarchies were elitist, authoritarian, and hedonistic. They compelled the populace to fear, obey, and love the matriarch - the goddess. Penalties for disbelief and disobedience were harsh and included execution. The queen chose a young man to be her annual lover. At the end of the year the queen would sacrifice her lover as a symbol of fertility. In this sacrificial ceremony the queen sprinkled the victim's blood on the land and the priestesses devoured his raw flesh. Some sects changed this practice, to symbolize the rise and ebb of the goddess' fertility, so that the queen chose a lover in the Spring that she sacrificed mid-Summer. Then she chose another lover that she sacrificed at the end of the year and then his bones were cracked open to get the marrow.
This and other rites included the use of mixtures that the matriarchal oligarch closely controlled. Some induced involuntary reactions and erotic energy while others induced death, hallucinations, malleability, rampages, and greatly amplified strength. Researchers have uncovered considerable evidence that shows that these ancient matriarchies used such mixtures in warfare against others (women).
So make no mistake. Their war is not against only men but it is against those who would oppose them. That is why these women have been establishing their doctrine of exclusive privilege that allows them to control others. Now they may claim that all of this a male myth, but their actions belie their claims and denials. It is their smokescreen that gives them away.
Medal of Honor - A letter to the Vallejo Times-Herald on August 17, 2010. A federal court has decided that there is no compelling reason for the government to ban lies about winning the Medal of Honor. First, the Medal of Honor is not about something won. Those who have received this decoration are called recipients. Lying about this decoration is not about free speech. It is about simple dishonesty, and there is too much of that today. (Recent Note: Judges are the greatest offenders. (29 SEP 2010))
Memory, Insight, Fleeting, and Total Recall
Memory - The ability to remember varies among individuals. Each of us have had instances of absent mindedness where we could not remember where we last placed an object or forgot to do something. This is a defect of attention but I am not so certain because I have unconsciously found a ‘lost’ object without effort a few days or weeks later. Looking at a ‘lost’ object and not seeing it called blocking. Memories fade over time and this is why many of us keep journals, diaries, photographs, and recordings of things and events that we would like to remember or must remember.
Memories, Blocking - Sometimes, I have trouble recalling a person’s name so when it does occur, I try to recall the name by scanning the alphabet. I spoke to several others about this problem and they related that they have had similar difficulty. Last Saturday (May 28, 2005) a friend and I were discussing the work of Mel Brooks, specifically ‘Young Frankenstein’. Both of us could not remember the name of a good comedic actor. I left to purchase some items at a nearby store and the name came to me. So I hurried back and said ‘Wilder’ and my friend completed the name, ‘Gene Wilder’. Daniel L. Shacter describes this phenomenon as ‘blocking’.
Memories, Mistaken - Sometimes we correctly remember but associate that memory to the wrong person or source. Worse yet, is remembering the right person but attributing the wrong memory, this is called misattribution. This is why I insist on a proper list of questions before acting as a witness, proponent, or adversary. That is why I oppose the doctrine of ‘yes’ or ‘no’ answers and insist on complete sentences that express the truth. Please see ‘The Seven Sins of Memory’ by Daniel L. Schacter (ISBN 0-618-04019-6) on about false confessions and false memories.
Memories, Recovered - There is no such thing as recovered memories. Sometime in the 1980s, I first heard about recovered memories. Recovered memories are to false psychology as cold fusion is to nuclear physics. Recovered memories are a product of certain psychotherapists who use memory altering or hypnotic drugs, hypnosis, guided imagery, and suggestion to obtain a desired result. So it is possible to implant false memories in some people because suggestibility varies from person to person. Memories can be distorted by coercion, physical or mental abuse, emotional stress, and memory altering drugs. Memory is also subject to other factors both in children and adults.
Men as Property - In the 1960's young women could marry without their parent’s permission when they became 18-years-old, at least in California. However, young men had to wait until they were twenty-one. In the mean time, they were subject to the military draft at seventeen and one-half years, or upon graduation from high school. To comply with the draft laws, the local schools regularly provided lists of students who would be eligible for the draft or recruitment. So when President Kennedy decided to send more military troops to Vietnam, he sent for Lewis B. Hershey, the Director of the Selective Service (the Draft).
In that meeting, both decided that the names of married men with children would occupy the bottom of the call-up list. Then just above them, would be the names of men who are married. So when President Lyndon Johnson rescinded this policy, thousands of couples rushed to get married. The reason for this was that earning $15,000 or more per year with generous benefits, was much better than trying to live on a draftee's pay ($115-$137 per month).
So many politicians exercised their political clout to ensure that those from wealthy families would get the plum jobs and short stints of actual duty. They were simply exercising their prerogatives, which is a part of being influential. This is not a new phenomenon, for the influential have practiced it for thousands of years. The point is that many men did not have the same choices as those others had because they were literally the property of the State.
The women who ran the local selective service board lived up to that name, they were selective and they were no friends or neighbors of mine. Many people had thought that military service should be an obligation that is derivable from a country's citizenship. Yet others see the draft as a cheap way to reduce spending on the military. This is one way that the rich can become richer, and the poor became poorer, maimed, or dead.
According to the Veteran's Administration, 9.2 million men served in the military between 1964 and 1975. Nearly twenty-seven million men were eligible for the draft but the government drafted only 2,215,000 men during the Vietnam era. Yet others claimed that the draft "encouraged" volunteers to join the military, so that the government would not draft them. That is the cheap talk of a habitual liar. However, that comment proves that these men were figuratively and literally property of the State. It did not stop there. With the rise of the women’s movement, many men not only became the chattel of the State but also bondable property of women who oppose equal rights.

Misandrification: the process of displacing men from society and the protection of the law. (The Abused Men's Area - July 17, 2012).
Monarchy - A monarchy is a government that has a hereditary chief of state. The monarch may have powers that vary from nominal to despotism (absolute). Many constitutional monarchies have a head of state (the monarch) and a head of government (a prime minister).
Monroe Doctrine, the News Magnates, and Manifest Destiny - Monroe Doctrine said that the American continents were not subjects for future colonization by the European powers. This meant that the United States would not allow new colonies to be created in the Americas nor permit the existing colonies to extend their boundaries. In contrast, Manifest destiny was a term used to describe the belief that it was God’s Will that the United States should rule all of North America. This was to be completed through the inevitable territorial expansion of the United States. The phrase, was used in support of the annexation of Texas in 1845 and revived during the Spanish-American War. This confirmed the earlier Latin-American description that the United States was the colossus of the north.
During the mid-nineteenth century, U.S. expansion into the Pacific was regarded as the Manifest Destiny of the United States and it was supposed to be a benevolent policy of national expansion. By the end of the nineteenth century, newspapers were the main source of news in this country. The problem was that the publishers rewrote the news to express their views rather than the facts.
So the only news, was the news that publishers decided that was fit to read by the public. So the owners and their special interest groups enjoyed the advantage of captive readers and as a result, wielded a great amount of influence and political power. This lead to ‘yellow journalism’ and that came from a comic strip about a bald child in a yellow nightshirt. Though the term was first associated with Joseph Pulitzer, the term was more aptly applicable to William Randolph Hearst and his creative talents in manufacturing provocative headlines to sell more newspapers.
In November 1897, President McKinley pressured Spain into granting Cuba limited autonomy within the Spanish empire but the rebels did not want limited autonomy, they wanted independence and were committed to continue their fight for own freedom. To protect American citizens from the rioters, President McKinley ordered the Battleship Maine to Havana, Cuba. Twenty-one days later, on February 15, 1898, the Maine exploded killing about 260 persons on board. As a result, an outraged American public immediately blamed a Spanish torpedo for the explosion.
Many researchers believe that the explosion occurred inside the Maine in a coal bunker. But "Remember the Maine" became a popular slogan and the sentiments of ‘manifest destiny’ did more to cause the war than the explosion on board the U.S.S. Maine. As a result, the United States acquired the former possessions of Spain including Guam, Puerto Rico, and the Philippines.
Moralizing Sexual Orientation- Although the Education Code does not require schools to notify parents about sexual orientation, they are required to tell the truth. Our schools are not the place for the bully pulpit where innocent students are punished for moral inadequacies of their teachers and bullying classmates.
Evidently this was the matter because a former student was allegedly harassed by her teachers and no doubt, some students joined in. So instead of punishing the only teachers and the students who were involved, the settlement appears to require that each student who is now attending school must submit to a punitive mass reeducation program.
When children are punished for the reprehensible acts of a teacher, it is called child abuse and parents have a right to remove their children from school. Although schools are not required to notify parents when teaching sexual orientation, their contempt for parental involvement shows their immorality. When families are punished for the immoral acts of the school district, then the Board of Education is a part of the problem. It doesn’t make sense to punish the innocent and reward the guilty for their cruelty and guile. Their wanton behavior is part of the problem and not the solution.
Mumble Jumbo - Rape and Spousal Abuse - Allegedly, there have been reports that ‘thousands’ of men have been falsely accused of rape but that’s not true because there are practically no studies on this subject. However if the figure encompassed only 1% of the total adult male population (U.S.), then more than 1.5 million men have been or would have been falsely accused of rape. But the American Medical Association (1995) says that rape is the most under reported violent crime. While in England, researchers have suggested that at least 75 percent and possibly 95 percent of rapes are never reported. I cannot imagine how anyone could come to that figure unless they took part in those phantom rapes. That would be as much as an inherent contradiction as a 'round square'.
National Security - The reason that a person would receive a security clearance was that they have knowledge of certain technology and have a record of trustworthiness. So any person who attempts to falsely discredit a person who has or has had a security clearance, could be or is a threat to national security. Its corollary would preclude any law that confers special or arbitrary immunity for those people who endanger national security by falsely accusing others.
News Media - Most of the news media do not divulge the names of the accusers (female) although that practice might encourage witnesses to come forward. However, in some jurisdictions a rape by a female is not a crime no matter the gender of the victim unless the victim is underage. But in those instances, the authorities and the news media conceal reports of the crime. This is contrary to the public interest to ensure that all of the evidence is brought to light. Now here’s the catch. If an accuser cannot prove her allegations, then she might recast them as something else but her attentive supporters don’t want you to know that. This is why women get away with lying about rape and spousal abuse and that is why nothing is done to women who lie. That's the connection between false allegations of rape and false allegations of spousal abuse. So their quoting false of numbers actually proves that men are falsely accused and the point is that nothing has been done about it. The reason for this ‘oversight’ is that most people in official circles believe that false allegations of rape do not require any penalty. This is why these crimes are easily claimed and hard to refute especially if the delusory evidence had never existed.
Newspaper Disclosures - Most newspapers will print the name of a man who has been accused of domestic violence or rape but do not print the name of the woman who has accused him. Adding to this, most law enforcement agencies will release their own, the woman’s version, of the alleged event rather than providing facts. This prevents potential witnesses from coming forward to tell the truth and that’s obstruction of justice and a half truth is still a lie.
No Penalty for Women who Lie - In more than 50 years, I have never heard or read about a woman who was punished for lying about rape or abuse. In fact, government encourages it through the shield laws but turns a blind jaundiced eye to the personal diaries of women that prove it. The courts have ruled that personal diaries are not protected by the Fifth Amendment. But that remains to be seen when someone claims that their privacy is a gender issue that is the sole province of women and not men. That’s why women, and not men, are protected by the shield laws.
This not a matter where a woman has sex and then claims ‘rape’ in the morning, she planned the episode and that malice is hers alone. So there is no difference if she claims rape days or months later. The connection between both circumstances is that some women wait until the evidence would have disappeared. On the other hand, she might keep the evidence in storage for weeks or months or years. So why would anyone do that unless they have extortion and other malice in mind? So her delay proves his innocence and her actions are those of one who is committing a fraud.
So when a female falsely claims rape, she gets sympathy and anonymity and when a man claims he’s innocent, he gets notoriety and perhaps his photo in the paper. Somehow, society believes that it is better to falsely accuse and imprison an innocent man than to punish a guilty woman. Does this mean that a woman has the right to sexual relations with a male and if he refuses, she has the right to claim rape? According to some women, she has that right because she is the sole determiner that a rape did or did not occur. That’s one reason that men keep quiet about their refusal to have sex with a woman because some people won't believe him. All anyone has to do is to examine false allegations of spousal abuse from the context of mandatory arrest. That's proof that men are more likely to be abused by women because that is the official policy of this government.
Some people quibble over the meaning of ‘false’ and ‘unsubstantiated’. A false report is one where no evidence exists that proves the charge to be true and there are other witnesses that attest to that fact. An unsubstantiated report is one that has not been verified. But according to some women, a baseless accusation "is considered truthful" but doesn’t meet the specific elements of the crime. But any claim that is not based on fact is 'baseless'. So some women speak in a language that sounds mysterious and thoughtful but has no real meaning. It’s called mumbo jumbo and there is no penalty for women who mutter and lie.
Offender Registry for Those Who Falsely Accuse - In California, a person who is wrongly accused of a sex crime still can find their name in the state’s sex offender registry. Worse, this person has no way to get their name removed and the state provides no procedure doing so for actual innocence. The state has been successfully sued and the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals has ruled the absence of such a procedure is a violation of federal civil rights statutes but the state refuses to comply. Perhaps a better approach is to establish a registry for those who falsely accuse another of any crime and then refuses to testify in court.
Patriarchs - Abraham was the ancestor of both the Arabs and the Jews. The Arabs trace their ancestry to Abraham's oldest son, Ishmael but the Jews consider Abraham their ancestor through another son, Isaac. So Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob (Isaac’s son) are called the patriarchs, the founding fathers, of the Jews. This comes from the account of Hagar and Ishmael in the desert. That's the patriarchy that antifeminsts speak and write about.
Patriarchy - a family or group headed by a patriarch where decent and inheritance are traced through the male line. Although the patriarch wields great power and that power is often delegated to other male members.
Paul Revere - Paul Revere probably did not shout that the British are coming because most of the colonists considered themselves British. However, he may have warned that the Regulars are coming because they were the ones most likely to be the immediate threat.
Payola and Rigged Results - There is Maury Povich’s Circus featuring DNA testing. This show begins as a soap opera drama and reaches a crescendo as Povich announces the test results and the crowd cheers. Then there is Steve Wilcos and Devil Dad - should I allow abusers to sit on my stage? How could anyone forget Jerry Springer’s gladiators on stage with phoney fights and those ever present referees?
Then there are shysters, hustlers and father rapists in their carnival of shows within shows. How often has the media carried misandrist commercials about evil men and domestic abuse? It’s the women and the media who are lying and they love it. This is sadism with sexual overtones and it is not fit for viewing. I wonder what this does to young children. So who is the fit parent now?
The show opened with Jack Bailey asking the audience of mostly women "How would you like to be Queen for a day?". Then the contestants were introduced and interviewed with commercials and trashy commentary interspersed between. The twist was that each ‘contestant’ had to relate the financial and problems, often sobbing through her entire entreaty. At the end of the show, the audience voted for the contestant who would be Queen for a Day, using a rigged applause meter.
Then the winner would be draped in a fur-trimmed velvet robe and given a jeweled crown. Then she was installed on a velvet throne and received a dozen long stemmed roses with the playing of ‘Pomp and Circumstance’ while her prizes were announced. During the entire ceremony, she would weep while her list of prizes was announced. This is reminiscent of the payola scandals of the 1930's and the game show scandals of 1958 that included rigging the results in ‘Twenty-One’ and ‘The $64,000 Question’. In other words, the courts have rigged the outcome to be whatever they want it to be.
Newton Minow told a convention of the National Association of Broadcasters on May 9, 1961 that television has become a vast wasteland of unbelievable families, a procession of formula comedies, violence, mayhem, and game shows. Today, television still has shows made to impair our sensibilities and I would describe them as promiscuous trash that only appeals to perversion.
Penmanship - There are several forms of penmanship. For an example, the lowercase cursive letter ‘S’ appears as the lowercase cursive ‘F’ in our own Declaration of Independence. From the Eighteenth through the Nineteenth century, school children learned Copperplate penmanship. However, many schools in the United States taught the Spencerian style of penmanship where the cursive ‘y’ and the cursive ‘z’ can be easily confused. Calligraphy is a beautiful form of lettering that is often used for special occasions but not for everyday use.
Phoney Dunning Notice - I received a number of phoney dunning letters from a firm that I never heard about or had any business with them. An actual example of one of them appears above. Why would a corporation in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania send mail from Royal Oak, Michigan (Zip code 48068)? Why would a corporation mix the terms ‘I’ and ‘We’? The letter is devoid of detail, signature, and is example of narcissism (notice the majestic 'we' in the third line. I call it phony because the letter and the authorization code are and remain unconfirmed. As a matter of information, my ex-wife used to send phoney mail to me addressed to Edward Stev Nunes and I added the underscore for emphasis.

Phoney Feminists - These persons are not feminists but are persons who say they are feminists but are actually opposed to the tenants of real feminism. So in this sense, a phoney feminist is simply a man or woman who lies. The word ‘phoney’ refers to deception while ‘pseudo’ refers to actual falsity. A pseudo feminist can be a person of either gender. Although it may be "politically incorrect" to question the veracity of a female’s complaint of rape or abuse, the failure to consider that she may be actually lying eradicates the presumption of innocence. This is especially significant because the crimes of rape and spousal abuse do not require corroborating evidence for conviction in many jurisdictions. Since these claims are often conjured to exclude possible witnesses and physical evidence, so the matter must hinge on the credibility of an accuser who has everything to gain and nothing to lose.
Phoney Feminists and the Right to Lie- I established the Abused Men’s Area website in 1999 with the purpose of bringing truth to an Internet dominated by women who actually believed that they were the superior gender. So some authors chose to relate these women to the Nazis and in 1989, the term ‘Feminazi’ entered our lexicon. Other authors chose to relate these women to the Chinese Communists because some women’s groups used Mao Zedong’s book (The Little Red Book) for doctrinal guidance. They became the ‘Redfems’. While these women call themselves feminists, they oppose the Equal Rights Amendment and so they are nothing more than a collection of perverted snobs.
Phoney Feminism is doctrine opposes the equality of the sexes and the removal of inequalities among all people. A propagandist seeks to change the way people perceive an issue. So propaganda is simply another way of preventing people from getting the truth. So when a lie is repeated often enough, it becomes seemingly true by sheer repetition. These people say that men are trying to suppress women, which is exactly what they are trying to do and in so doing, they are oppressing others. So in this sense, their propaganda is used to win support for their cause by disseminating lies to obscure the truth and so their goal is simple. It is to create an Orwellian society in their own image.
The reality is that nearly all men are potential defendants and its up to them to be extra careful to avoid any situation that might lead to a false charge. The hook is that institutions that don’t adopt these rules could lose their federal funding, including student tuition assistance. I cannot imagine why any male would want to attend those institutions which are plagued by an ‘epidemic of rape’. Since they have allowed the student body to create a hostile environment for men, they should lose their accreditation. That will get their attention because no one would want to hire a graduate from a discredited institution with a sordid reputation.
Play Misty for Me -In Carmel, California, an all-night DJ, Dave Garver, receives regular requests to play "Misty," from a seductive listener named Evelyn Draper. When he first meets her in a local ‘meat rack’, he is not aware that she is the source of the mysterious voice who always asked, Play 'Misty' for me. Later that night they have a one-night stand and she believes that gave her exclusive rights to him.
So what he believes was just a one-night stand becomes a nightmarish obsession as Evelyn stalks him and drops in unexpectedly. This causes problems especially after he resumes his relationship with his ex-girlfriend Tobie Williams. Evelyn becomes angry and jealous while Garver becomes increasingly terrified and upset by her. She destroys his possessions, knifes his cleaning woman, wrecks his home, and stalks him everywhere. Finally the authorities place her in a mental institution and not in prison. When she is later released, and resumes her nightly requests for Misty, she promises him that she is cured. But in the middle of the night, Dave is awakened to the sounds of 'Misty' being played and Evelyn appears above him with a butcher knife ready to stab him. Evelyn is now obsessive, murderous and psychotic and he manages to evade her while she disappears into the night.
As the tension builds, he fears for his girlfriend's life as he discovers that Tobie's new roommate is actually Evelyn who kills a policeman who was sent to protect her. Evelyn ties up Tobie and uses her as bait to lure Dave inside. Then she attacks and after many slashes, Dave hits her and she falls from the balcony to the rocky ocean crags below. The movie ends with Dave comforting Tobie while the radio is playing ‘Misty’.
Pluto is a Planet - I am plagued with writers’ block and from time to time. So I try to write about a different subject. Most of us, as we have grown up, have accepted the idea that Pluto is the ninth planet in our solar system. One of several things that I learned while attending college at Sonoma State is that scientists are never happy with the present and they always want to change things. That can be a good thing but not always.
The first four planets in the solar system, Mercury, Venus, Earth, and Mars are called terrestrial planets. The reason for this classification is that these planets are similar in composition to the Earth and they also have similar densities. Of the nine planets in the solar system only two do not have one or more moons and they are Mercury and Venus.
The moons of Pluto are called Charon, Hydra, and Nix. Pluto and Charon have been called a double planet because Charon is larger than compared to Pluto than any other moon is to a planet in our Solar System. The Earth-Moon barycenter is about 1,600 Km below the Earth’s surface but the Pluto-Charon barycenter is outside Pluto’s surface. This means that Pluto and Charon always present the same face to each other and that makes Hydra and Nix more interesting.
Some authors have called the earth-moon complex a double planet orbital system. Their theory presupposes that the Sun’s gravitational field acts upon the Earth and its Moon is a single body called the Earth-Moon barycenter. So the Earth and its Moon orbit the barycenter as both orbit the Sun. Since the Earth is more massive than the Moon, their orbits wobble in their path about the Sun.
A circle has an eccentricity that is equal to zero. An ellipse has an eccentricity that is greater than zero and less than one. A parabola has an eccentricity that is equal to one and a hyperbola has an eccentricity that is greater than one.
The curve of a circle is a set of all points that are the same distance from a given point called the center of the circle. The curve of an ellipse is a set of all points whose distances to two given points (the foci), have a constant sum. The curve of the parabola is a set of points that have the same distance from a given point called the locus and a given line called the directrix. The curve of the hyperbola is the set of all points whose distances to two given points, the foci, have a constant difference.
The easiest way to describe these conic sections, is by their eccentricity. When the eccentricity is zero, the figure is that of a circle. When the conic section’s eccentricity is less than one, the figure is that of an ellipse. So, a circle is a special case of an ellipse.
When the eccentricity of a conic section is exactly one, the figure is that of a parabola. When the conic section’s eccentricity is greater that one, the figure is that of a hyperbola. So a parabola is a special case of a hyperbola. Do not confuse the figure of a hyperbola with the disingenuous word ‘hyperbole’ (an extravagant exaggeration).
A continent is one of several divisions of land on this planet. The arctic ice is not a continent but a huge floating iceberg. Antarctica is a continent because it has land mass and this is also true of Australia. Pluto is the second-largest known small planet in the Solar System (after Eris) and tenth-largest body observed directly orbiting the Sun. It was classified as a planet from its 1930 discovery, in 2006 the International Astronomical Union (IAU) declared it a dwarf planet. What is this thing called a dwarf?
Pluto is the largest member of a distinct population in what is called the Kuiper belt. Most members of the Kuiper belt are composed of rock and ice. They are small and their composition is not similar to the terrestrial planets. Their orbits are somewhat eccentric and highly inclined to the instance that they are retrograde. They move backwards and that is no difference to me. The inclination of an orbiting object has nothing to do with choice or opinion, they are there and that is the way they are.
Prelude to Treachery -In May 2003, a county coordinator for a rape crisis and domestic violence shelter and four staff members boycotted a meeting after making a pubic statement. The coordinator objected to a presentation that appeared in a segment of '20/20', a news program carried by the ABC television network. The subject of this broadcast is that some women are perpetrators of domestic violence and she objected to this fact. She said that we should not provide services for men because 85 to 90 percent of the victims are women. She said that the county undermines her work when the county's priorities "are not properly aligned with our center."
Once a woman lies about an important fact, then it is probable she would lie about nearly anything as it suits her. The potential rewards for a female who makes a false allegation of spousal abuse or child abuse are enormous and the risks are minimal. A man who is victimized by deceit can lose his home, possessions, savings, contact with his children, and his job. Some employers and government agencies require that a person reveal arrests though they are innocent and a court has sealed or destroyed the records. In addition, many employers will not hire a person with an arrest record for a violent crime though a court found the person factually innocent and apparently this is what the county coordinator wanted.More than 80 percent of claims of spousal abuse are false and most are made to gain a tactical advantage in court or to conceal other criminal activity. Although rape and spousal abuse are crimes, women who lie about rape and abuse are not treated as criminals.
Price of Citizenship - The Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) has done very little to promote equal rights. That is why the supporters of this Act would say that it does not exist to support equal rights. Instead, this act exists to take money from our citizens to support causes and policies that they do not want, specifically the defamation of innocent persons. So now these women want to expand the Violence Against Women Act by redefining both rape and abuse. The other problem is that these women do not want to act on what evidence that may be collected until after the evidence, if it ever did exist, had disappeared. That not palpable until one realizes that the absence of evidence often confirms a person’s innocence. Rape and spousal abuse and rape are the only crimes that do not require any actual evidence to prove guilt. This is what the VAWA is about, blaming men for acts that never did occur. So the question is this, are women safer today than they were in 1994? If they are not, then this legislation has failed. It has maliciously targeted the wrong persons and that simply requires an unproven accusation.
Priestess of Almonon -Parts of stone age (Neolithic) Europe, North Africa, and South Western Asia embraced religious ideas based on the worship of a single mother deity who was omnipotent and immortal. The moon's three phases of new, full, and old represented the goddess' menstrual cycle: renewal, fertile, and cleansing. The sun's repeating annual cycles symbolized the goddess' physical and maternal power: Spring - renewal, Summer - the peak, and Winter - the decline. These sects similarly characterized the life stages of a mortal female as: air - the maiden, earth and water - the mother, and the underworld - the crone.
These early matriarchies held that the sacredness of the triad and the threefold triad proved the goddess' divinity. The adherents adopted this belief in many variations. Some sects worshiped a queen who they believed was the goddess' mortal twin or her living representative. Other sects worshiped the divine goddess and nine living priestesses who represented the goddess' threefold of her three states of being. At least one sect adopted this belief that included a queen who was the goddess' living representative and nine priestesses who were the 'threefold of threefold'. At first, they espoused the belief that only the winds and rivers impregnated women. The symbolic goddess - the queen, and her priestesses took male lovers only for their erotic pleasures. When these sects eventually acknowledged that males were essential to childbearing, man's status gradually changed.
Such matriarchies were elitist, authoritarian, and hedonistic. They compelled the populace to fear, obey, and love the matriarch - the goddess. Penalties for disbelief and disobedience were harsh and included execution. The queen chose a young man to be her annual lover. At the end of the year the queen would sacrifice her lover as a symbol of fertility. In this sacrificial ceremony the queen sprinkled the victim's blood on the land and the priestesses devoured his raw flesh. Some sects changed this practice, to symbolize the rise and ebb of the goddess' fertility, so that the queen chose a lover in the Spring that she sacrificed mid-Summer. Then she chose another lover that she sacrificed at the end of the year.
This and other rites included the use of mixtures that the matriarchal oligarchy closely controlled. Some induced involuntary erections and erotic energy. Others induced death, hallucinations, malleability, rampages, and greatly amplified strength. Researchers have considerable evidence that these ancient matriarchies used such mixtures in warfare against others (women). Make no mistake, their war is not against men but against society because no true person would ever embrace the doctrine of superior privilege.
No Privacy Law in Banking for Ordinary Citizens - A bank does not have to inform the account holder that the police or some other agency is monitoring your account and may withdraw funds from your account without prior notice.
Polygraph Testing: The Polygraph measures physical characteristics such as heart rate, respiration, and galvanic skin response. The latter response is the measurement of change in the electrical resistance of the skin that in turn, is a physical-chemical response to emotional arousal (nervousness or fear). So the polygraph does not detect lies, it responds to the nervousness induced by the testing, and this is why many countries have banned polygraph testing.
Projection and Blaming Others - Blaming the victim is also known as psychological projection. For an example, Peter says that John has stolen his term paper when, in fact, he has stolen John's paper. This brings to mind the story about Gaslight. As a young girl, Paula lived with her aunt Alice Alquist, a famous entertainer. At some point, Paula discovered her aunt's murdered body and the police failed to find the killer. Paula inherited her aunt's estate, including the family home, and went away to school. The story begins ten years later.
Paula meets Gregory Anton, a charming smooth manipulator. They marry and go to live in Paula's home in London. Anton controls the money and the household and increasingly isolates her. He blames her for taking or losing items in a plot contrived by him. He presents himself to others as the caring, loving husband of a chronically ill and hysterical wife while he deviously drives her to the edge of insanity. Paula's plight comes to the attention of a sympathetic Scotland Yard inspector who recalled Paula and admired her aunt.
The rest of the story unfolds in a classic case of spousal abuse by projection and self-gratification. Now the secret to this movie is this. Have you been in a home where the water pressure would decrease when someone was using the facilities? This story is not about water, it is about the gaslights that were commonly used in England before the wide scale use of electricity by the public. There's a secret to uncover and that's the hint. It has something to do with the gaslights. See the motion picture, Gaslight, Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer (1944). Based Upon The Play by Patrick Hamilton.
Propaganda - The term, propaganda, comes from the New Latin (1500 C.E.) and entered our lexicon in 1718. Propaganda has one meaning. It is the spreading of false ideas, allegations, misinformation, or rumor to further one’s own false cause at the expense another’s reputation. For an example, those women who lie insist that the rule-of-thumb is the diameter of a stick that men use to beat a woman, are thoughts of their own making. These are their secret desires about their own relationship to others and it is called sadism.
These women also claim that a male’s heart rate and blood pressure are indicators of his violent tendencies against women though they are both zero and he is dead. This objection is called a reduction to an absurdity. On the other hand, a Freudian slip reveals some unconscious aspect of the mind. Projection is the attribution of a person’s own ideas and feelings toward other persons and this is called the externalization of guilt. Conscious projection is usually a lie that reveals the intent of the guilty.
Even today, people use their hands and feet to measure things. Sometimes, people rely on another’s habit - such as Andrew always leaves home at 5:35 A.M. It is something roughly correct, an estimate, and it not intended to be scientifically accurate. If somebody is going to beat someone, they are not going to stop and use a caliper, or other device, nor Andrew’s feet to determine its diameter. The rule-of-thumb is a method or procedure based on experience and common sense.
Property Rights - Property is classified in many different ways from that which is tangible to those that are intangible. When a person puts a gated fence around his property, then he is protecting his property from trespassing; so it may seem. In my city, many homeowners had to build fences to keep people from driving across their lawn, knocking down a fire hydrant, and damaging their home. The problem is that sometimes those scofflaws are the police. So building a fence does not keep the police or anyone else from trespassing on another person’s property. The point is that when the police make a conscious and unlawful choice to obtain the fruit of the poisonous tree; that makes their evidence questionable, doubtful, and inadmissible.
Redfems - This term is used to refer to those women that used the writings of Mao Tse-tung as a template for their own revolutionary dogma. The term was also used to express the connection between Mao Zedong (the former spelling was Mao Tse-tung) and his The Little Red Book. This book was published by the People's Republic of China from April 1964 until approximately 1976. As its title implies, the book is a collection of quotations excerpted from Mao Zedong's past speeches and publications. The book was resized and printed in the West to make it easier to carry.
The closest equivalent title of this book in Chinese is literally "The Red Treasured Book" which was a term popular during the Cultural Revolution. It was the most printed book in the twentieth century and an estimated five to 6.5 billion copies were printed during Mao's attempt to transform Chinese society. The book's popularity may be due to the fact that it was an unofficial requirement for every Chinese citizen to own the book. During the Cultural Revolution everyone had to study the book during school or working hours. Quotes from Mao were either bold-faced or highlighted in red and most writing, including scientific essays, had to quote Mao.
During the 1960s, the book was the most visible item in mainland China. The propaganda artists depicted people as smiling or determined and with a copy of the little red book in their hand. The Cultural Revolution ended in 1976 with the death of Mao and Deng Xiaoping rose to power in 1978. The importance of the book diminished and the glorification of Mao's quotations is now considered outmoded. According to reports, Chinese history books devote only a paragraph to Mao Zedong. However, this can change at any time.
Refusal to Appear or Deliberate Delay - Malingering or other deliberate delay by a party or the court is a sign of guilt and complicity. It only takes a few minutes to adjudicate a case when an advocate refuses to appear. Any other delay is a result of prejudice by court especially if the remaining party was falsely accused by the complainant to avoid discovery and disclosure of their unlawful activity. This also includes any false accusation of wrongdoing or malfeasance by a public official. So failure to appear without good cause is a sign of their guilt and their complaint must be considered a ruse. So any order of protection for the benefit of this advocate must cease to exist and this party must cover all costs and damages that resulted from its bad faith litigation.
Rest in Peace - In many places in the world, land is too valuable to be used for burial, instead it used to grow crops and provide other amenities for its people and that what makes a nation. In the United States today there are approximately one-half million acres of land being used for cemeteries. Much of this land would be more valuable if it were used for urban growth. The problem is that cemeteries established in and near cities have now been engulfed by the growth of housing while other cities had no opportunity to grow. So one purpose of taking cemetery land would be to build more housing and expand the infrastructure. The fact that the housing would be for a certain group of people does not make it any less of a public use. The government was playing ‘Robin Hood’ by simply taking land from one and giving it to another.
In one case, a school district sought to have a cemetery moved so that the land could be used for school purposes. The court found that the school was more necessary than the cemetery. So the cemetery was moved so that a school could be built. However, the property was sold to private concerns so that it could be taxed and that would be the basis for further revenue. So by taking and condemning the cemetery, the school district robbed the dead. That is why there is no right for the dead to rest in peace.
Resolve - The English monarchy did not have much in the way of actual political power in the twentieth century but many had the quality to instill in their subjects an overwhelming sense of purpose. This is what King George VI did as he shared the same hardships as his subjects while he led them in their fight against tyranny. The remarkable quality of this man was that he was never trained to be King but he carried out his duties and tried to remain in privacy away from public adulation. Nonetheless, this intrepid man remained in London during the Second World War and visited villages and cities throughout England and raised their spirits. This was a king who dreaded public speaking because of his stammer but he spoke to them in simple words and his presence gave them the courage to fight against nearly impossible odds. This is the stuff of heroes but this man was more than that.
Rube Goldberg - Reuben Lucius Goldberg was a cartoonist, sculptor, author, engineer, and inventor - a jack of most trades that was known for depicting complex devices to do a simple task. As a result, he became the inspiration for several competitions, where the entrants had to build a complex machine to do a simple task or do nothing of any practicality. The surprising part was that Mr. Goldberg received a Pulitzer Prize for his political cartoons. So sometimes a picture does say more than a thousand words but that is not the real story. That story is yet to be told.
Safety at Home and in The Workplace - Many common materials can generate a dust explosion, such as coal, sawdust, magnesium and other common materials. These include flour, grain, sugar, powdered milk, and dust. Sometimes pollen can form explosive suspensions in air without the presence of an exposed flame. Spontaneous combustion is the self-ignition of combustible material through chemical action (as oxidation) of its constituents. This is why people who work with machinery and oily towels or papers, store them in closed containers to prevent oxidation. Other ignition sources include arcing, downed power wires, electrostatic discharge, friction, hot surfaces, lightning, and overheated spaces. Always use grounded outlets indoors and outside and ground fault interrupter outlets in damp and wet areas.
Social Alienation Syndrome - I coined the term, Social Alienation Syndrome, because I wanted to describe social alienation outside the context of relationship and gender. Social Alienation Syndrome is not an illness. It is the set of behaviors designed to estrange the relationship between society and a person or a group of people. Social Alienation Syndrome is rooted in the terms of ‘bigot’ and ‘jealously’. A bigot is a person who does and remains devoted their own opinions and prejudices at the expense of another person or group. Bigotry is the practice of a person or group of people who treats another person with intolerance and hatred. Bigots do not recognize that all of us have equal social, political, legal, and economic rights and we all have equal obligations within each of our individual capabilities.
School Lunch Program - This issue is not about whether a tomato is a fruit or a vegetable. This issue is about money. To tell the truth, a tomato is a berry which is cultivated for its edible fruit. The problem is that there is a bill in Congress that would ensure that two tablespoons of tomato paste would be classified as a vegetable serving in the federal school lunch program. So there goes today’s botany and agriculture lessons.
These idiots want to ensure that two tablespoons of runny tomato paste can be classified as a vegetable serving, especially if it is slathered on pizza dough. The dispute is not about proper child nutrition, is about profiteering from the school lunch programs. There is more fattening pizza dough in pizzas than fresh tomatoes and where’s the other protein? The point is that children cannot learn when they are denied proper nutrition, however Congress doesn’t care.
Congress wants to block the Department of Agriculture’s effort to force schools to reduce the offering of pizza while adding more fruits and vegetables in government subsidized school lunch programs. However, critics say that the government is trying to make it harder to offer pizza in the federally subsidized school lunch program and they are right. Pizza is not a main course; it’s a treat that should be rarely offered.
The Department of Agriculture has also sought a stricter provision requiring that food contain half a cup of tomato paste to qualify as a vegetable serving. Currently the government considers that two tablespoons of tomato paste to be a vegetable. I always thought that most vegetables are plants that grew in or out of the ground. However, according to the American Frozen Food Institute, that definition would make pizza nearly impossible to serve.
Another provision would block proposed Department of Agriculture nutrition rules to limit the consumption of fried food in schools. That a bad idea because it produces future obesity and health care costs. But there is a more sinister side, these manufacturers are creating customers who would consume more food. This places an ever increasing strain on our available natural resources while encouraging profiteering. Apparently, the latter is what Congress has in mind.
Star Chamber - Between 1500 and 1700, the Star Chamber was an English court of law that passed judgement without trial by a jury. At first, it tried people who were so powerful that they could not be tried in an ordinary court. So men from the King’s Council (the royal advisers) passed judgement without trial by jury. This was popular because it protected ordinary people from the predations of their oppressors. Eventually it abused its powers and used subterfuge and torture to obtain confessions. King Charles used it to crush all opposition to his policies. The Long Parliament abolished the Star Chamber in 1641. The term now refers to any court or official organization that demands exclusive privileges.
Stolen Technology - U.S. Export Controls on Technology Transfers - Computer software cannot be patented in the United States and other countries. However, software can be copyrighted and licensed. However, embedded software (firmware) is part of a design as a single mechanism or an integral part. The author of computer software or firmware usually copyrights and licenses it. Firmware can exist in read-only memory devices (ROMS) or in programable read-only devices (PROMS). Sometimes a manufacturer will embed its firmware with its own processing unit, creating a device with unique capabilities in process control and manufacturing.
So when a person steals, it they do not have the right to use or sell it. Only the author possesses those rights until he or she legitimately sells those rights to another party. However, United States export controls exist to protect the national security and foreign policy interests of this country. When a person sells or sends technology products to interests outside this country, they have to comply with regulations imposed on the exportation of those products. This also includes any technology used in that product. So those who sell those kinds of products without a licence or the right of possession are subject to penalties.
These export controls apply to controlled items that someone sends beyond the borders of the United States or someone shares with foreign persons or entities in this country or abroad. The general rule is that only US citizens are eligible to receive controlled items such as information or software without first obtaining an export license from the appropriate agency. These rules also apply to stolen technology because it is copyrighted or patented or both. So when someone falsely claims abuse, they may be using that claim to conceal their theft and illegal transfers of stolen technology. However, the courts ignore the law and continue as if the crime never occurred.
Telling the Truth - The Court ruled against him because no legal obligation exists for wives to tell the truth about extramarital affairs. If wives have no legal obligation to tell the truth, then they have no legal obligation to tell the truth about anything, including their false claims about abuse. On the other hand, the judge could be acting in self interest.
Truth Tables and Logic Tables - There are two states in binary logic, true and false. Logic tables and truth tables serve two purposes. Truth tables are used to determine all possible outcomes from a specific set of conditions while logic tables are used in electronic designs to illustrate multiple outcomes including contradictions. For an example, a single logical condition cannot be both true and false at the same instance. For an example Bob cannot be at two places at the same instance. However, Jane says that Bob abused her at their home but Bob says he doesn’t know anything about that because he was at work. If it is true that Bob was at work, then he couldn’t have abused Jane. The 'N' notation such as 'NAND' is simply the logical negation of 'AND' in this context and so forth.
A Truth and Logic Table
Those who cannot learn from history are doomed to repeat
Those who do not remember their past are condemned to repeat their mistakes.

VA Home Loans - According to the Veteran's Administration, 9.2 million men served in the military between 1964 and 1975. Nearly 27 million men were eligible for the draft but only 2,215,000 men were drafted during the Vietnam era. The draft was credited with "encouraging" many so-called volunteers to join the military rather being drafted. Comparisons between veterans and their nonveteran peers showed that nonveterans are better off than veterans in employment status, educational achievement, and income. Veterans earn 10 to 20 percent less because the government discounts the first eight years of military experience at one-half the value. For an example, a person with eight years of service is credited with only four years of experience.
Moreover, veterans are more likely to have been divorced and the reason for this is that Veteran home loans are usually more desirable than most other loans. In turn, false claims of abuse and domestic violence are far more common today. The reason is that the courts are more likely to award the veteran’s home to his ex-wife in a divorce, especially if children live in the home. The courts’ reasoning is that it better to force a veteran into homelessness than it is to require women to stop lying. This is why the mortgage must require that the veteran live in his home and that the courts can’t offset that requirement through any kind of coercion.
Voltaire- I do not agree with what you have to say, but I'll defend to the death your right to say it. Faith consists in believing when it is beyond the power of reason to believe. Voltaire was the pen name of Francois Marie Arouet, a French author and philosopher.
What Others Might Not Know - Quote of the Times: The Court ruled against him because no legal obligation exists for wives to tell the truth about extramarital affairs. If wives have no legal obligation to tell the truth, then they have no legal obligation to tell the truth about anything, including their false claims about abuse. On the other hand, the judge could be acting in self interest.
Whiskey Rebellion - The farmers in the frontier areas of the early United States (1791) found that they could make more money by turning the corn or rye crop into whiskey. The reason that this came about was that corn and rye were bulky and had to be kept dry in grain silos. However, rye is often used as a cover crop to protect the soil until its time to plant the next crop of another vegetable. But the real problem was that transportation in the North American frontier was either poor or nonexistent and the government needed money. So the federal law, at the time, allowed government agents to enter homes and collect a whiskey tax.
But the farmers protested and the tax collectors were not received very well. Some whiskey makers in Pennsylvania continued to refuse to pay the tax and this forced President Washington to raise an army of 13,000 soldiers to put down the ‘whiskey rebellion’. Imagine how anyone would feel if the privacy of their home was invaded by government agents who took what they wanted. This only proves that a person’s home is not their castle.
Since untaxed whiskey was and still is contraband, government agents could either destroy the liquor or confiscate it for government use. Moreover, the bootlegger would face heavy fines and imprisonment. What most people don’t know is that medicinal alcoholic preparations are not taxed while alcoholic beverages such as beer, wine, and liquor are.
Ethanol (ethyl alcohol) is used in medications as a solvent and a preservative because it dissolves other ingredients that cannot be dissolved in water. Moreover, alcohol keeps the medicine from settling to the bottom of the bottle. In formulations that contain water soluble compounds in liquid form, alcohol may be added as preservative. However, the alcohol content can be as low as one to 25 percent for nighttime cold remedies. So these ‘elixirs’ may have the same amount of ethanol as four bottles of beer or four servings of hard liquor (except 151 Rum). There is one sure way to avoid medicine containing ethanol, take the medicine in capsule or tablet form.
Some governments have enacted laws that prevent minors from purchasing products that contain ethanol. However, they may not have enacted laws that contain substances that affect a person's perceptions and this is what some over-the-counter medicines do. That is why some medicines are bootlegged and that's the connection between this and the Whiskey Rebellion where beer was not taxed. The reason for that was that beer was safer than water to drink because it had been boiled and contained alcohol that killed the germs. According to another source, drinking undiluted wine was considered barbaric (meaning foreignly or want of culture, or just simply savage). Those who were not citizens of Rome were called barbarians. Perhaps it’s good to be a barbarian and avoid the germs because protecting yourself from disease is no crime. However, prescriptions containing controlled substances are still reported to the government. That' s why some call our government the nanny state.
Women who stole Feminism - The 1960's saw the rise of feminism with the goal of removing the social and legal barriers that prevented men and women from sharing equality. So we supported the doctrine that the rights of the individual transcend gender. However, other women craved unlimited authority and power and that is how they overtook the movement toward gender equality by opposing equal rights for men and women. So the Senate simply added the Hayden rider that nullified what this legislation was supposed to do.
Instead it gave women complete and unfettered immunity for any crime they had committed or will commit. As a result, this left few legal protections for men. Which in turn, led to the doctrine of the mandatory arrest of any male falsely accused of rape or abuse. This only encouraged women to continue to lie because, in practice, the law provides no real penalty for women who lie. Despite this total failure to make that connection, Congress decided to pass the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) in 1994.
This is why our laws make false claims of rape and domestic violence easy to claim hard to disprove. In fact, some states do not require proof. So it is the same old game of she says, he says, and she is always right and receives public funding. How one-sided can the law be, how about several billion dollars a year for women only? This means that men have to pay taxes so that women can falsely accuse them of nearly anything without sanctions against their illicit conduct. That is not only blaming the victim, it is also punishing him and that is sadistic and this is why some women love it.
Writing, Words, and their Usages Change - There is a movement to exclude the word ‘shall’ from our grammar and overload the word ‘will’. Both words have unique meanings and nuances. For an example, will this day be a better day than yesterday? Or shall this day be a better day than yesterday? Shall we hide in the night afraid of all that is evil or will we turn the night into a day of courage and enlightenment? For if someone can control our language, then they could censor our thoughts and that is exactly what those who oppose freedom want to do.
Most ancient Greek and Latin dictionaries were lists of words there either specialized, rare, or difficult (hard to use). The rules of grammar are chosen by a grammarian and some grammarians can be difficult and an annoyance. The word ‘dictionary’ comes from the Latin words: dicto, dixi, and dictum. So a dictionary tells how to spell, pronounce, and use a word but a glossary is different.
A glossary is a collection of special terms that exist in a book or essay. For an example, it may describe the difference between a kilometer, a nautical mile, and a statute mile or the difference between Greenwich Mean Time and Greenwich Civil Time. What is the difference between a sphere, a spheroid, and an oblate spheroid? What does ‘the sphere of influence’ mean? Is this a misnomer when related to surfaces?
During the Middle Ages, cloistered scholars used Latin dictionaries which explained hard Latin words in easier Latin. But Latin began to lose its popularity because most people relied upon their native language. So these persons wanted new dictionaries to explain the hard words of their own language and that makes sense. So in 1604, Robert Cawdrey, a schoolmaster, prepared the first English dictionary (A Table Alphabeticall of Hard Wordes) and it defined about 3,000 English words taken from other languages.
By the 1600's, larger dictionaries offered more information about the words they defined and Misogyny was coined in 1656. In 1721, Nathan Bailey published a dictionary containing about 60,000 words. This was the first English dictionary that tried to include most English words instead of hard words only (The World Book Encyclopedia, 2005). This lead to larger dictionaries and the "word race" was on. In 1806, Noah Webster published a small school dictionary in the United States. Webster wanted to set up an American standard of good usage to compare with the British standard. Webster simplified British spellings and this was done by reducing the number of letters in a word, such as behavior for behaviour.
Wrong Race for Reproducibility and Validation -Reproducibility and Validation are used in nearly every scientific endeavor. This also means that if other laboratories reproduce identical results then something could be wrong. This is how that is so. Albert Einstein had predicted that the Sun’s gravitational field would deflect the light from a distant star such that its apparent position would be in a different place in a star field. So this brings me to an account of about Sir Arthur Eddington.
After the end of the first world war, Eddington organized an expedition and traveled to Principe, an island in the Gulf of Guinea just north of the equator. Principe is the smallest country in the world that was not a former British overseas territory. It is also the smallest Portuguese speaking country in the world while directly across the Atlantic Ocean is the largest Portugese speaking country in the world - Brazil. Sobral in Brazil and Principe in Atlantic Africa have nearly the same latitude. This means that these two places are excellent locations for the observation and measurement of the curvature of light by the Sun’s gravitational field. There was a problem, the expedition’s data was wrong.
Albert Einstein had predicted a shift in a star’s apparent position that only half is much as it was supposed to be but the members of the expedition didn’t know that. So they changed their data to create (what they thought to be) the right result. What they didn’t know was that by 1919, Einstein had corrected his findings. So the scientific community decided that the erroneous results were a result of a peculiar defect in the telescopes. Somehow this became a matter of personal and national pride, so in an effort to show reproducibility, they produced the results they wanted to get when it was not necessary.
Zebras -are striped members of the horse family that consists of three species. They are the Common Zebra, Grevy’s Zebra, and the Mountain Zebra. As with wild horses, zebras live in herds and can be found in the eastern and southern Africa. Each species can be identified by their distinctive stripe pattern and each individual zebra has its own stripe pattern such that no individual zebra has the same stripe pattern as another zebra. So in this sense, a Zebra’s stripes are analogous to a person’s finger prints.
Zoologists believe that the stripes may help to keep herds of zebras together and experiments have shown that from birth zebras are attracted to objects with stripes. But individual zebras with abnormal stripe patterns are usually not allowed in the herd and seldom survive. Both Grevy’s zebra and the Mountain zebra are endangered by farming and hunting and sometimes they are killed for their hides and their attractive striped patterns and the last of the Quaggas became extinct in 1800's. The problem is that humans have erected fences and barriers so that zebras cannot roam as they did before. Now they have to compete with domestic livestock such as cattle and the experts say that zebras now face an uncertain future because their wilderness habitat is shrinking.
