On a note to our local, or should I say, state level
JAIL4Judges groups, if we can send a $10.00 donation to our national group,
can't we put the same effort or contribution towards our state program as
Dear John Kinney and all
There is absolutely nothing in our J.A.I.L.
Constitution and By-Laws that prevents the requisition of local or state
funding from its own JAILers. Indeed wisdom dictates that some amount
of support be directed to local and state efforts of J.A.I.L. As to what the
definition of "some amount" would be is a question of discretion on the part of
your state JIC. I would only advise the JICs to use caution and wisdom to
not set the bar too high as to discourage those who are merely struggling
Also, the JICs should assure that the funds
collected for their state, or their counties by their Wardens faithfully go
to the J.A.I.L. cause. Monetary mismanagement is the downfall of
J.A.I.L., as designed, exists on a federal,
state and a county level, all in need of substance, each potentially
drawing resources from the same well, i.e., the JAILers. As the
Commander-In-Chief, I was once criticized by one concerned JAILer that it was
immoral for everyone to draw upon my time and resources for nothing. Indeed the
Scripture instructs that we are not to muzzle the ox that treadeth out the corn,
and the laborer is worthy of his hire.
While we have yet to reach the
standard of corn for the ox, or worth of my labor, I have indeed
imposed $10 twice annually (March and September) for all JAILers to support
National J.A.I.L. This amount merely addressed the criticism of everyone in
J.A.I.L. receiving a benefit without paying anything for it.
This month being March, it is time for
everyone to send their $10 to P.O. Box 207, North Hollywood, CA. 91603, if they
have not already done so, and I know that a lot of you have not.
I would remind you that every dollar given
to J.A.I.L. is equal to a $1000 given to most any other organization or cause
because of the mileage J.A.I.L. gets out of a dollar. I don't suppose their
exists an organization on earth that has grown so far with so very little
support, (less than a movie ticket), giving rise to the miracle of J.A.I.L.'s
So JAILers, get out your wallets and place
that $10 in the mail. You should be happy to have the existence of J.A.I.L. that
you can send your money to. Thanks to all of you. Together we shall prevail.
There are no armies on earth that can defeat and idea whose time has
