If only the American people could know these facts during every moment

It may not be, however, and when checked, many did not follow through on
all the necessary steps in the process of incorporation. Only those
with a stake or something to lose ever check that aspect out, and most
of those people don't take the trouble either, thinking, "I saw their ad

My rights are too innumerable to be covered by law. As proof, just look
at all the next year's legislation that will be written in attempts to
take more of them away.

"There is a reserved right in the toolbox of a Frog Farmer to
investigate his contracts and find out whether anyone contending against
him has exceeded their powers. It would be a strange anomaly to hold
that a state citizen, having chartered a procedure (constitution) for
elevating neighbors to officers to make use of certain franchises and
powers, could not, in the exercise of his sovereignty, inquire how these
franchises had been obtained and employed, and whether they had been
abused, and demand the production of the corporate books and papers for
that purpose. (certified copies of oaths of office and other required
bona fide documentation required to be on file by law."

This is why, if it's not a life-threatening emergency that requires the
immediate orders of a magistrate to subdue a "just following orders"
type goon, a "formal" "docketed" "administrative hearing" "on the
record" is the preferable course of action (short of forgetting the
whole thing and everyone going home), scheduled for the convenience of
all parties to minimize wasted time and resources, and at that meeting,
I will take the First Step of letting the record reflect my human nature
and the SHEER IMPOSSIBILITY of mistaking me in any way to be a
corporation or of partaking in any corporate privileges. This is a
presumption rarely ever challenged (and rarely ever true for most
Americans anymore). Once it has been done, one has a lot more leverage
over his opponents, who most likely cannot rationally discuss any
"Don't ever change, people,
Even if you can.
You are your own best toy to play with;
remote control hands
Made for each other, made in Japan.
Woman with a greasy heart,
Don't ever change, people,
your face will hit the fan.
Don't ever change, people,
even if you can.
Don't change before the empire falls;
You'll laugh so hard you'll crack the walls"
