Politics

Blockchain has served as an effective Bitcoin platform "ledger" for a variety reasons: since 2009 it has proven resistant to tampering and hacking, it is decentralized, trackable, auditable, and open.  Instead of calling for a "recount" when races are close, a Blockchain-based vote counting solution would allow for accurate, real-time vote counting.  

However, is it going to work? And How?  
(I am seriously asking for help so please post a comment below if you can help sort this out!)

Two conflicting articles below:

(1) is the patent from USPTO issued to the USPS to build the system Feb 7, 2020
(2) is an article from MIT released on 11/6/2020 saying that it won't work.

Which is it!?

Planet Lockdown: Katherine Austin Fitts

Catherine was a young, talented investment banker appointed U.S. Assistant Secretary of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) under father George Bush. In that insider position, she had a rude awakening as her positive initiatives were deviously and systematically undermined by the very superiors who had assigned her tasks, witnessing firsthand corruption at the highest levels. That set her on a course of digging into the Big Picture of what is really going on here. In 1998, she founded Solari, Inc., an investment advisory firm to "build real wealth in the wider economy,” She heads a team with a broad global reach now, and is one of the voices exposing the agenda and working on solutions. This recent interview provides another lens into what's going on.

April 30, 1992

By the authority vested in me as President by the Constitution and the laws of the United States of America, and in order to ensure that the United States achieves the most beneficial economic use of its resources, it is hereby ordered as follows:

Section 1. Definitions. For purposes of this order: (a) "Privatization" means the disposition or transfer of an infrastructure asset, such as by sale or by long-term lease, from a State or local government to a private party.

(b) "Infrastructure asset" means any asset financed in whole or in part by the Federal Government and needed for the functioning of the economy. Examples of such assets include, but are not limited to: roads, tunnels, bridges, electricity supply facilities, mass transit, rail transportation, airports, ports, waterways, water supply facilities, recycling and wastewater treatment facilities, solid waste disposal facilities, housing, schools, prisons, and hospitals.

A recent CNBC news report detailed the stories behind the 18,000 businesses that have left California in recent years to find refuge in states with more business-friendly tax and regulatory laws. It begs the question – why aren’t these businesses relocating to Pennsylvania?

Taxes

If Americans want to give money to the government for one reason or another, they should be free to do so. If Americans prefer to spend their money on other things, then they should be free to do that also.

Note: This article was originally posted on BarrettCommunity.com

 

My opinion is that the Local Services tax should be repealed because it drives away business and makes it harder to attract workers in Barrett Township:

Background - State Level:

  • The Local Tax Enabling Act of 1965 allowed Second Class Townships to collect Occupational Privilege Taxes
  • In 2004, the Local Tax Enabling Act was amended to allow for collecting "Emergency and Municipal Services Taxes"

Background - Locally:

  • In 2005, ordinance 141 was passed, known as "Emergency and Municipal Services Tax"
  • In 2007 it was renamed "Local Services Tax" when ordinance #155 was passed.

Can residents own their internet provider?

Friends and Neighbors - I want to share the following information about a small town near Westfield, Massachusetts that built their own fiber optic internet service. Would something like this benefit the people of Barrett Township?

The City of Westfield has been home to an experiment, of sorts, in which municipal internet has been made available to a majority of the homes in the city. Westfield Gas and Electric (WG&E) has developed its own ISP to give residents a choice for internet service beyond the monopoly of a private ISP.

2nd Amendment Warning!  Registration leads to confiscation.  

A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.

Infringement is any form of regulation that prevents someone from bearing arms.

Therefore a nationwide firearm registration system is unconstitutional! 

Do not obey!

 

(Note: I did not write the following - found on FB)

Highlights of H.R. 127 bill they're trying to pass in D.C. (read it yourself, it's 19 pages and easy to understand)

Firearms will be required to be registered. Registration includes: make, model and serial number of the firearm, and where it will be stored.

You will have 3 months to do this, and all information will be accessible to the public and government. So....

Scenario 1: little Johnny now knows you own zero firearms and comes to rob you.

Scenario 2: little Johnny knows exactly what you have, and where it is, when he robs you.

Scenario 3: Uncle Sam now knows where every firearm you own is located when they come to confiscate them.

You must have a license to own a firearm.

To obtain a license you must be at least 21, pass a criminal background check, pass a psychological evaluation, and take a minimum of 24 hours of firearm training. As part of your psychological evaluation, your household members and any former spouses will be interviewed.

So if your ex wife hates you, there goes your ability to own a gun. If your abusive ex husband doesn't want you to be able to protect yourself, there goes your ability to own a gun.

If your license is ever revoked you must immediately return your license and surrender all firearms and ammunition.

Your license must be renewed every 3 years with at least 8 additional hours of firearm training.

You must own firearm insurance from the government at the cost of $800 a year.

You, and only you, can use your firearm unless you notify the attorney General. So if you're at work and someone breaks in your house while your spouse is there, they can not use your firearm without facing the penalties below.

No person under the age of 18 shall be allowed to possess or use a firearm. There goes hunting with your son or daughter. Or being able to teach them about gun safety and respect for guns.

You can not own ammunition that is .50 caliber or greater.

You can not own anything that holds more than 10 rounds of ammunition.

Penalties include $75,000 to $150,000 in fines and 15 to 25 years in prison.

I'm just wondering how far the government has to go before we the people stand up, and when or if we do...will it be too late.

...Shall not be infringed.

The lawyers employed by Donald Trump have amassed an impressive pile of arguments to defend him against charges that he incited a mob of his supporters to stage an armed insurrection in an effort to stop the selection of his democratically elected opponent. It is not popular in the fickle fairyland of Washington D.C. to defend Donald Trump, let alone to praise him. But at this sad hour in our nation’s history, that is precisely what must be done.

Constitution For The United States

First, an observation that our founding fathers never wrote the constition "of" the United States.  According to Black's Law Dictionary, 6th edition, below are the legal definitions of the word "for" and "of" so that you can see the difference.

I'm not going to try and discuss the legal difference between the words "of" and "for" - but see for yourself that they are legally different. 

Read and think for yourself!
