    THE UNITED STATES PROGRAM FOR GENERAL AND COMPLETE DISARMAMENT IN A PEACEFUL WORLD

    ————————————
    THE NATIONS OF THE WORLD,
    Conscious of the crisis in human history produced by the revolutionary development of modern weapons within a world divided by serious ideological differences;

    —————–
    Determined to save present and succeeding generations from the scourge of war and the dangers and burdens of the arms race and to create conditions in which all peoples can strive freely and peacefully to fulfill their basic aspirations;

    —————————-
    Declare their goal to be: A free, secure, and peaceful world of independent states adhering to common standards of justice and international conduct and subjecting the use of force to the rule of law; a world where adjustment to change takes place in accordance with the principles of the United Nations; a world where there shall be a permanent state of general and complete disarmament under effective international control and where the resources of nations shall be devoted of man’s material, cultural, and spiritual advance;
    Set forth as the objectives of a program of general and complete disarmament in a peaceful world:

    —————————————————————–
    (a) The disbanding of all national armed forces and the prohibition of their reestablishment in any form whatsoever other than those required of preserve internal order and for contributions to a United Nations Peace Force;
    (b) the elimination from national arsenals of all armaments, including all weapons of mass destruction and the means for their delivery, other than those required for a United Nations Peace Force and for maintaining internal order;
    Nations to ensure compliance at all times with all disarmament obligations;

    (b) To this end to seek to attain the widest possible area of agreement at the earliest possible date;
    (c) Also to seek – without prejudice to progress on the disarmament program – agreement on those immediate measures that would contribute to the common security of nations and that could facilitate and form a part of that program.
    Affirm that disarmament negotiations should be guided by the following principles:
    (a) Disarmament shall take place as rapidly as possible until it is completed in stages containing balanced, phased and safe-guarded measures, with each measure and stage to be carried out in an agreed period of time.
    (b) Compliance with all disarmament obligations shall be effectively verified from their entry into force. Verification arrangements shall be instituted progressively and in such a manner as to verify not only that agreed limitations or reductions take place but also that retained armed forces and armaments do not exceed agreed levels at any stage.
    (c) Disarmament shall take place in a manner that will not affect adversely the security of any state, whether or not a party to an international agreement or treaty.
    (d) As stated relinquish their arms, the United Nations shall be progressively strengthened in order to improve its capacity to assure international security and the peaceful settlement of differences as well as to facilitate the development of international cooperation an common tasks for the benefit of mankind.
    (e) Transition from one stage of disarmament to the next shall take place as soon as all the measures in the preceding stage have been carried out and effective verification is continuing and as soon as the arrangements that have been agreed to be necessary for the next stage have been instituted.
    Agree upon the following outline program for achieving general and complete disarmament:
    STAGE I
    A. To Establish an International Disarmament Organization:
    (a) An International Disarmament Organization (IDO) shall be established within the framework of the United Nations upon entry into force of the agreement. Its functions shall be expanded progressively as required for the effective verification of the disarmament program.
    (b) The IDO shall have: (1) a General Conference of all the parties; (2) a Commission consisting of representatives of all the major powers as permanent members as permanent members and certain other states on a rotating basis; and (3) an Administrator who will administer the Organization subject to the direction of the Commission and who will have the authority, staff, and finances adequate to assure effective impartial implementation of the functions of the Organization.
    (c) The IDO shall: (1) ensure compliance with the obligations undertaken by verifying the execution of measures agreed upon; (2) assist the states in developing the details of agreed further verification and disarmament measures; (3) provide for the establishment of such bodies as may be necessary for working out the details of further measures provided for in the program and for such other expert study groups as may be required to give continuous study to the problems of disarmament; (4) receive reports on the progress of disarmament and verification arrangements and determine the transition from one stage to the next.
    B. To Reduce Armed Forces and Armaments:
    (a) Force levels shall be limited to 2.1 million each for the U.S. and U.S.S.R. and to appropriate levels not exceeding 2.1 million each for all other militarily significant states. Reductions to the agreed levels will proceed by equitable, proportionate, and verified steps.
    (b) Levels of armaments of prescribed types shall be reduced by equitable and balanced steps. The reductions shall be accomplished by transfers of armaments to depots supervised by the IDO. When, at specified periods during the Stage I reduction process, the states party to the agreement have agreed that the armaments and armed forces are at prescribed levels, the armaments in depots shall be destroyed or converted to peaceful uses.
    (c) The production of agreed types of armaments shall be limited.
    (d) A Chemical, Biological, Radiological (CBR) Experts Commission shall be established within the IDO for the purpose of examining and reporting on the feasibility and means for accomplishing the verifiable reduction and eventual elimination of CBR weapons stockpiles and the halting of their production.
    C. To Contain and Reduce the Nuclear Threat:
    (a) States that have not acceded to a treaty effectively prohibiting the testing of nuclear weapons shall do so.
    (b) The production of fissionable materials for use in weapons shall be stopped.
    (c) Upon the cessation of production of fissionable materials for use in weapons, agreed initial quantities of fissionable materials from past production shall be transferred to non-weapons purposes.
    (d) Any fissionable materials transferred between countries for peaceful uses of nuclear energy shall be subject to appropriate safeguards to be developed in agreement with the IAEA.
    (e) States owning nuclear weapons shall not relinquish control of such weapons to any nation not owning them and shall not transmit to any such nation information or material necessary for their manufacture. States not owning nuclear weapons shall not manufacture such weapons, attempt to obtain control of such weapons belonging to other states, or seek or receive information or materials necessary for their manufacture.
    (f) A Nuclear Experts Commission consisting of representatives of the nuclear states shall be established within the IDO for the purpose of examining and reporting on the feasibility and means for accomplishing the verified reduction and eventual elimination of nuclear weapons stockpiles.
    D. To Reduce Strategic Nuclear Weapons Delivery Vehicles:
    (a) Strategic nuclear weapons delivery vehicles in specified categories and agreed types of weapons designed to counter such vehicles shall be reduced to agreed levels by equitable and balanced steps. The reduction shall be accomplished in each step by transfer to depots supervised by the IDO of vehicles that are in excess of levels agreed upon for each step. At specified periods during the Stage I reduction process, the vehicles that have been placed under supervision of the IDO shall be destroyed or converted to peaceful uses.
    (b) Production of agreed categories of strategic nuclear weapons delivery vehicles and agreed types of weapons designed to counter such vehicles shall be discontinued or limited.
    (c) Testing of agreed categories of strategic nuclear weapons delivery vehicles and agreed types of weapons designed to counter such vehicles shall be limited or halted.

To reduce the Risks of War by Accident, Miscalculation, and Surprise Attack: (a) States shall give advance notification to the participating states and to the IDO of major military movements and maneuvers, on a scale as may be agreed, which might give rise to misinterpretation or cause alarm and induce countermeasures. The notification shall include the geographic areas to be used and the nature, scale and time span of the event.
    (b) There shall be established observation posts at such locations as major ports, railway centers, motor highways, and air bases to report on concentrations and movements of military forces.
    (c) There shall also be established such additional inspection arrangements to reduce the danger of surprise attack as may be agreed.
    (d) An international commission shall be established immediately within the IDO to examine and make recommendations of the possibility of further measures to reduce the risks of nuclear war by accident, miscalculation, or failure of communication.
    G. To Keep the Peace:
    (a) States shall reaffirm their obligations under the U.N. Charter to refrain from the threat or use of any type of armed force – including nuclear, conventional, or CBR – contrary to the principles of the U.N. Charter.
    (b) States shall agree to refrain from indirect aggression and subversion against any country.
    (c) States shall use all appropriate processes for the peaceful settlement of disputes and shall seek within the United Nations further arrangements for the peaceful settlement of international disputes and for the codification and progressive development of international law.
    (d) States shall develop arrangements in Stage I for the establishment in Stage II of a U.N. Peace Force.
    (e) A U.N. peace observation group shall be staffed with a standing cadre of observers who could be despatched to investigate any situation which might constitute a threat to or breach of the peace.
    STAGE II
    A. International Disarmament Organization:
    The powers and responsibilities of the IDO shall be progressively enlarged in order to give it the capabilities to verify the measures undertaken in Stage II.
    B. To Further Reduce Armed Forces and Armaments:
    (a) Levels of forces for the U.S., U.S.S.R., and other militarily significant states shall be further reduced by substantial amounts to agreed levels in equitable and balanced steps.
    (b) Levels of armaments of prescribed types shall be further reduced by equitable and balanced steps. The reduction shall be accomplished by transfers of armaments to depots supervised by the IDO. When, at specified periods during the Stage II reduction process, the parties have agreed that the armaments and armed forces are at prescribed levels, the armaments in depots shall be destroyed or converted to peaceful uses.
    (c) There shall be further agreed restrictions on the production of armaments.
    (d) Agreed military bases and facilities wherever they are located shall be dismantled or converted to peaceful uses.
    (e) Depending upon the findings of the Experts Commission on CBR weapons, the production of CBR weapons shall be halted, existing stocks progressively reduced, and the resulting excess quantities destroyed or converted to peaceful uses.
    C. To Further Reduce the Nuclear Threat:
    Stocks of nuclear weapons shall be progressively reduced to the minimum levels which can be agreed upon as a result of the findings of the nuclear Experts Commission; the resulting excess of fissionable material shall be transferred to peaceful purposes.
    D. To Further Reduce Strategic Nuclear Weapons Delivery Vehicles:
    Further reductions in the stocks of strategic nuclear weapons delivery vehicles and agreed types of weapons designed to counter such vehicles shall be carried out in accordance with the procedure outlined in Stage I.
    E. To Keep the Peace:
    During Stage II, states shall develop further the peace-keeping processes of the united Nations, to the end that the United Nations can effectively in Stage III deter or suppress any threat or use of force in violation of the purposes and principles of the united Nations:
    (a) States shall agree upon strengthening the structure, authority, and operation of the united Nations so as to assure that the United Nations will be able effectively to protect states against threats to or breaches of the peace.
    (b) The U.N. Peace Force shall be established and progressively strengthened.
    (c) States shall also agree upon further improvements and developments in rules of international conduct and in processes for peaceful settlement of disputes and differences.
    STAGE III
    By the time Stage II has been completed, the confidence produced through a verified disarmament program, the acceptance of rules of peaceful international behavior, and the development of strengthened international peace-keeping processes within the framework of the U.N. should have reached a point where the states of the world can move forward to Stage III. In Stage III progressive controlled disarmament and continuously developing principles and procedures of international law would proceed to a point where no state would have the military power to challenge the progressively strengthened U.N. Peace Force (emphasis added) and all international disputes would be settled according to the agreed principles of international conduct.
    The progressive steps to be taken during the final phase of the disarmament program would be directed toward the attainment of a world in which:
    (a) States would retain only those forces, non-nuclear armaments, and establishments required for the purpose of maintaining internal order; they would also support and provide agreed manpower for a U.N. Peace Force.
    (b) The U.N. Peace Force, equipped with agreed types and quantities of armaments, would be fully functioning.
    (c) The manufacture of armaments would be prohibited except for those of agreed types and quantities to be used by the U.N. Peace Force and those required to maintain internal order. All other armaments would be destroyed or converted to peaceful purposes.
    (d) The peace-keeping capabilities of the United Nations would be sufficiently strong and the obligations of all states under such arrangements sufficiently far-reaching as to assure peace and the just settlement of differences in a disarmed world.

    INTRODUCTION
    The revolutionary development of modern weapons within a world divided by serious ideological differences has produced a crisis in human history. In order to overcome the danger of nuclear war now confronting mankind,
    THE UNITED STATES
    HAS INTRODUCED AT THE SIXTEENTH GENERAL ASSEMBLY OF THE UNITED NATIONS A PROGRAM FOR GENERAL AND COMPLETE DISARMAMENT IN A PEACEFUL WORLD.
    This new program provides for the progressive reduction of the war-making capabilities of nations and the simultaneous STRENGTHENING OF INTERNATIONAL INSTITUTIONS to settle disputes and maintain the peace. It sets forth a series of comprehensive measures which can and should be taken in order to bring about a world in which there will be freedom from war and security for all states. It is based on three principles deemed essential to the achievement of practical progress in the disarmament field:
    FIRST, THERE MUST BE IMMEDIATE DISARMAMENT ACTION:
    A STRENUOUS AND UNINTERRUPTED EFFORT MUST BE MADE TOWARD THE GOAL OF GENERAL AND COMPLETE DISARMAMENT; at the same time, it is important that specific measures be put into effect as soon as possible.
    Second, ALL DISARMAMENT OBLIGATIONS MUST BE SUBJECT TO EFFECTIVE INTERNATIONAL CONTROLS:
    The control organization must have the manpower, facilities, and effectiveness to assure that limitations or reductions take place as agreed. It must also be able to certify to all states that retained forces and armaments do not exceed those permitted at any stage of the disarmament process.
    Third, adequate peace-keeping machinery must be established:
    There is an inseparable relationship between the scaling down of national armaments on the one hand AND THE BUILDING UP OF INTERNATIONAL PEACE-KEEPING MACHINERY AND INSTITUTIONS ON THE OTHER. NATIONS ARE UNLIKELY TO SHED THEIR MEANS OF SELF-PROTECTION IN THE ABSENCE OF ALTERNATIVE WAYS TO SAFEGUARD THEIR LEGITIMATE INTERESTS.
    THIS CAN ONLY BE ACHIEVED THROUGH THE PROGRESSIVE STRENGTHENING OF INTERNATIONAL INSTITUTIONS
    UNDER THE UNITED NATIONS
    AND BY CREATING A UNITED NATIONS PEACE FORCE TO ENFORCE THE PEACE AS THE DISARMAMENT PROCESS PROCEEDS.
    ________________________________________
    There follows a summary of the principal provisions of the United States Program for General and Complete Disarmament in a Peaceful World. The full text of the program is contained in an appendix to this pamphlet.

    ————————————————
    THIS IS A SUMMARY… full text shall be posted next

    ——————————————————
    DISARMAMENT GOAL AND OBJECTIVES
    The over-all goal of the United States is a free, secure, and peaceful world of independent states adhering to common standards of justice and international conduct and subjecting the use of force to the rule of law; a world which has achieved general and complete disarmament under effective international control; and a world in which adjustment to change takes place in accordance with the principles of the United Nations.
    In order to make possible the achievement of that goal, the program sets forth the following specific objectives toward which nations should direct their efforts:
    THE DISBANDING OF ALL NATIONAL ARMED FORCES AND THE PROHIBITION OF THEIR REESTABLISHMENT IN ANY FORM WHATSOEVER OTHER THAN THOSE REQUIRED TO PRESERVE INTERNAL ORDER AND FOR CONTRIBUTIONS TO A UNITED NATIONS PEACE FORCE;
    The elimination from national arsenals of all armaments, including all weapons of mass destruction and the means for their delivery, OTHER THAN THOSE REQUIRED FOR A UNITED NATIONS PEACE FORCE AND FOR MAINTAINING INTERNAL ORDER;
    The institution of effective means for the enforcement of international agreements, and for the maintenance of peace IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE PRINCIPLES OF THE UNITED NATIONS;
    The establishment and effective operation of an International Disarmament Organization within the framework of the United Nations to insure compliance at all times with all disarmament obligations.
    TASK OF NEGOTIATING STATES
    The negotiating states are called upon to develop the program into a detailed plan for general and complete disarmament and to continue their efforts without interruption until the whole program has been achieved. To this end, they are to seek the widest possible area of agreement at the earliest possible date. At the same time, and without prejudice to progress on the disarmament program, they are to seek agreement on those immediate measures that would contribute to the common security of nations and that could facilitate and form port of the total program.
    GOVERNING PRINCIPLES
    The program sets forth a series of general principles to guide the negotiating states in their work. These make clear that:
    AS STATES RELINQUISH THEIR ARMS, THE UNITED NATIONS MUST BE PROGRESSIVELY STRENGTHENED IN ORDER TO IMPROVE ITS CAPACITY TO ASSURE INTERNATIONAL SECURITY AND THE PEACEFUL SETTLEMENT OF DISPUTES;
    Disarmament must proceed as rapidly as possible, until it is completed, in stages containing balanced, phased, and safeguarded measures;
    Each measure and stage should be carried out in an agreed period of time, with transition from one stage to the next to take place as soon as all measures in the preceding stage have been carried out and verified and as soon as necessary arrangements for verification of the next stage have been made;
    Inspection and verification must establish both that nations carry out scheduled limitations or reductions and that they do not retain armed forces and armaments in excess of those permitted at any stage of the disarmament process; and
    Disarmament must take place in a manner that will not affect adversely the security of any state.
    DISARMAMENT STAGES
    The program provides for progressive disarmament steps to take place in three stages and FOR THE SIMULTANEOUS STRENGTHENING OF INTERNATIONAL INSTITUTION.
    FIRST STAGE
    The first stage contains measures which would significantly reduce the capabilities of nations to wage aggressive war. Implementation of this stage would mean that:
    The nuclear threat would be reduced:
    All states would have adhered to a treaty effectively prohibiting the testing of nuclear weapons.
    The production of fissionable materials for use in weapons would be stopped and quantities of such materials from past production would be converted to non-weapons uses.
    States owning nuclear weapons would not relinquish control of such weapons to any nation not owning them and would not transmit to any such nation information or material necessary for their manufacture.
    States not owning nuclear weapons would not manufacture them or attempt to obtain control of such weapons belonging to other states.
    A Commission of Experts would be established to report on the feasibility and means for the verified reduction and eventual elimination of nuclear weapons stockpiles.
    Strategic delivery vehicles would be reduced:
    Strategic nuclear weapons delivery vehicles of specified categories and weapons designed to counter such vehicles would be reduced to agreed levels by equitable and balanced steps; THEIR PRODUCTION WOULD BE DISCONTINUED OR LIMITED; THEIR TESTING WOULD BE LIMITED OR HALTED.
    Arms and armed forces would be reduced:
    The armed forces of the United States and the Soviet Union would be limited to 2.1 million men each (with appropriate levels not exceeding that amount for other militarily significant states); levels of armaments would be correspondingly reduced and their production would be limited.
    An Experts Commission would be established to examine and report on the feasibility and means of accomplishing verifiable reduction and eventual elimination of all chemical, biological and radiological weapons.
    Peaceful use of outer space would be promoted:
    The placing in orbit or stationing in outer space of weapons of mass destruction would be prohibited.
    States would give advance notification of space vehicle and military launchings.
    U.N. peace-keeping powers would be strengthened:
    MEASURES WOULD BE TAKEN TO DEVELOP AND STRENGTHEN UNITED NATIONS ARRANGEMENTS FOR ARBITRATION, FOR THE DEVELOPMENT OF INTERNATIONAL LAW, AND FOR THE ESTABLISHMENT IN STAGE II OF A PERMANENT U.N. PEACE FORCE.
    AN INTERNATIONAL DISARMAMENT ORGANIZATION would be established for effective verification of the disarmament program:
    Its functions would be expanded progressively as disarmament proceeds.
    It would certify to all states that agreed reductions have taken place and that retained forces and armaments do not exceed permitted levels.
    It would determine the transition from one stage to the next.
    States would be committed to measures to reduce international tension and to protect against the chance of war by accident, miscalculation, or surprise attack:
    States would be committed to refrain from the threat or use of any type of armed force contrary to the principles of the U.N. Charter and to refrain from indirect aggression and subversion against any country.
    A U.N. PEACE OBSERVATION GROUP would be available to investigate any situation which might constitute a threat to or breach of the peace.
    STATES WOULD BE COMMITTED TO GIVE ADVANCE NOTICE OF MAJOR MILITARY MOVEMENTS which might cause alarm, observation posts would be established to report on concentrations and movements of military forces.
    SECOND STAGE
    The second stage contains a series of measures which would bring within sight a world in which there would be freedom from war. Implementation of all measures in the second stage would mean:
    Further substantial reductions in the armed forces, armaments, and military establishments of states, including strategic nuclear weapons delivery vehicles and countering weapons;
    Further development of methods for the peaceful settlement of disputes UNDER THE UNITED NATIONS;
    Establishment of a permanent international peace force WITHIN THE UNITED NATIONS;
    Depending on the findings of an Experts Commission, a halt in the production of chemical, bacteriological, and radiological weapons and a reduction of existing stocks or their conversion to peaceful uses;
    On the basis of the findings of an Experts Commission, a reduction of stocks of nuclear weapons;
    The dismantling or the conversion to peaceful uses of certain military bases and facilities wherever located; and
    The strengthening and enlargement of the International Disarmament Organization to enable it to verify the steps taken in Stage II and to determine the transition to Stage III.
    THIRD STAGE
    During the third stage of the program, the states of the world, building on the experience and confidence gained in successfully implementing the measures of the first two stages, would take final steps toward the goal of a world in which:
    States would retain only those forces, non-nuclear armaments, and establishments required for the purpose of maintaining internal order; they would also support and provide agreed manpower for a U.N. Peace Force.
    The U.N. Peace Force, equipped with agreed types and quantities of armaments, would be fully functioning.
    The peace keeping capabilities of the United nations would be sufficiently strong and the obligations of all states under such arrangements sufficiently far-reaching as to assure peace and the just settlement of differences in a disarmed world.

  • BCC? The Blind leading the Blind?

    BLIND LEADING THE BLIND definition.An expression applied to leaders who know as little as their followers and are therefore likely to lead them astray:

    I submit this, as my comment and question?

    The huge  NGO email lists, with email address and names I received were, an INSPIRATION to me. These huge special interest global NGO entities know exactly how to promote their green agenda. One NGO bragged on their website that they had sent over 20,000 EMAILS to WA DC legislators, they brag about how they are able to influence our elected representatives voting.

    If these  HUGE NGO email lists, with email address and names, gives NGO’s  the POLITICAL CLOUT to create legislated laws of our land?

    What do we have to fight back with, they are organized, their agenda is “21”?  We have hundreds, thousands, of splinter groups, we have so many with different causes,  beliefs and ideas?

    We all fight back in our own way. I am certainly not an authority on how anyone should  fight back.

    ———————————————

    I am simply fighting back in my own way

    I NEVER BLIND COPY (BCC) for my own  purpose and intent.

    HOW STUPID OR WHATEVER, WOULD I BE?

    IF AFTER,  I  RESEARCHED, DOCUMENTED, DOCUMENTED, DOCUMENTED, COPIED, CUT, PASTED, COMMENTED, POSTED, AND THEN EMAILED BCC?

    WHAT PURPOSE WOULD I SERVE, IF I BBC? IF I FAILED TO BE OPEN AND TRANSPARENT,

    “LACK OF TRANSPARENCY IS A HUGE POLITICAL ADVANTAGE,” “AND BASICALLY, CALL IT THE STUPIDITY OF THE AMERICAN VOTER OR WHATEVER, BUT BASICALLY THAT WAS REALLY, REALLY, CRITICAL FOR THE THING TO PASS.”- JONATHAN GRUBER, THE MIT HEALTH ECONOMIST FOR OBAMACARE

    ————————————————————————————————

    IF I FAILED TO SPECIFICALLY IDENTIFY  THE What? Who? Where? When? How? Why?

     I WOULD SIMPLY BE PROMOTING THE CRITICAL STUPIDITY OF THE AMERICAN VOTER OR WHATEVER  AND PERPETUATING THE SOCIAL PHENOMENA  OF leaders who know as little as their followers, THE BLIND LEADING THE BLIND, and  are therefore likely to lead them astray:

    ———————————————————–

    IT WAS JUST ONE MORE DOCUMENTED EXAMPLE, JUST MORE PROOF THAT HUGE GREEN NGO GROUPS ARE MORE ORGANIZED, MORE INFORMED, SENDING MORE INFORMATION TO MORE GREEN PEOPLE AND CONTROLLING MORE OF OUR GOVERNMENT.

    One NGO bragged on their website that they had sent over 20,000 EMAILS to WA DC legislators

    ——————————————————————–

    WHAT DIFFERENCE DOES IT MAKE?

    Huge NGO SPECIAL INTEREST GROUPS ARE Political Game Changers

    The power of cyberspace reflected on Face book, twitter, tweet, blogs, EMAILS and websites have become HUGE POLITICAL GAME CHANGERS.

    ———————————————————————

    WHAT DIFFERENCE DOES IT MAKE?

    (BCC) Blind listed?  Blindsided? or Black listed?

     (BCC) Blind listed, blind carbon copy in Technology Expand. messaging. (BCC) An electronic mail header which lists addresses to which a message should be sent, but which will not be seen by the recipients. Bcc is defined in RFC 822 and supported by most e-mail systems.

    Blindsided by definition catch (someone) unprepared; attack from an unexpected position. hit or attack (someone) on the blind side.

    Black listed  by definition, (or black list) is a list or register of entities or people who, for one reason or another, ARE BEING DENIED a particular privilege, service, mobility, ACCESS or recognition.

    ————————————————————-

    WHAT DIFFERENCE DOES IT MAKE?

    WHY I NEVER BLIND COPY?

    I explained it to Lois, I send my emails to concerned people and groups in about 10 to 15 counties in WA State. Most of the concerned people and groups have been involved in litigation and or appeals with WA State government.

    I send my POSTED COMMENTS AND EMAILS to the “servants of the people”  federal, state and local government ELECTED representative, the anointed appointed etc.

    It is my intention to let these “servants of the people” know, by using the very old journalistic cliché that stories, documented POSTINGS, EMAILS, COMMENTS should always contain answers to these six questions:

    What? Who? Where? When? How? Why?

    What the hell  these  “servants of the people”  doing?

    Who are these “servants of the people”?

    Where are these “servants of the people”?

    When are these “servants of the people”?

    How are these people “servants of the people”?

    AND WHY ARE THESE “servants of the people”?

    How STUPID, would I be,  to identify “servants of the people” as  UNKNOWN SOMEBODY’S?

    WHAT PURPOSE WOULD I SERVE, IF I BBC? IF I FAIL TO BE OPEN AND TRANSPARENT, IF I FAIL TO SPECIFICALLY IDENTIFY  THE What? Who? Where? When? How? Why?

    I WOULD SIMPLY BE PROMOTING THE CRITICAL STUPIDITY OF THE AMERICAN VOTER OR WHATEVER  AND PERPETUATE THE SOCIAL PHENOMENA  OF THE BLIND LEADING THE BLIND.

    AS, applied to leaders who know as little as their followers and are therefore likely to lead them astray.

    Hmmm…  WELCOME TO GEORGE?  “BY GEORGE”

    I DIGRESS TO LONG BEFORE THE YEAR 1598, BUT “BY GEORGE” YOU WILL ENJOY THIS

    The reference is British. St. George is the patron saint of English. HE ALLEGEDLY “SLEW DRAGONS.” “By George” is considered to be a very mild oath. It was originally “Before George.” It also appears as “For George” and “Fore George.”
    The first record of its appearance in WRITTEN English was in the year 1598, by Ben Jonson. The “by George” version was first used by Fielding in 1731. Gradually, the “for and fore and before” were dropped AND THE “BY GEORGE” REMAINED.
    IT WAS USED, ORALLY, AS A BATTLE CRY LONG BEFORE 1598, but no one knows exactly when. The dictionary traces only the first WRITTEN use of words and phrases.

    Source: http://en.allexperts.com/q/Etymology-Mea…

    This type of word/phrase usage is called an “expletive attributive”.

    OLD LADY answered 6 years ago

    “BY GEORGE” The actual origin is in sixteenth century England, when the church was in turmoil and was ATTEMPTING TO EXERT ITSELF AND GAIN MORE CONTROL OVER THE LIVES OF THE PEOPLE. Swearing was blasphemy — and brought either a fine or a penance. So instead of saying, ‘by God,’ people started saying ‘by George’ AND THE CHURCH PEOPLE COULDN’T DO ANYTHING ABOUT IT

    Jan. 10, 2015  My after ATTENDING comments

    It was a most unusual day (I had never rallied before)

    CAMARADERIE prevailed,   a sense of community, the COPS came and stayed, we were defined by the the company we were keeping and the signs that we carried. We were endorsed  and encouraged  by the HONKING OF HORNS, THE THUMBS UP  AND COMMENTS from  like minded law abiding  American citizens, We were all PROUD to be representing a our local community in a rally to support of law enforcement

    A Sequim Gazette reporter and photographer did show up at the rally.

    Of course I made a comment to them, it’s my personal sacrifice.

    I can hardly wait to see what the Sequim Gazette puts in print?

    Remember what the local reporters did with my “ECOLOGY SUCKS” comment?

    Friday Jan. 9, 2015 marked National Law Enforcement Appreciation Day

    Posted: Jan 09, 2015 6:44 PM PST Updated: Jan 09, 2015 9:07 PM PST

    SCOTT COUNTY, MO (KFVS) – You may have noticed a lot of blue around Heartland cities on Friday, Jan. 9.

    Many joined in a nationwide effort to show support for law enforcement.

    Friday marks Law Enforcement Appreciation Day, or L-E-A-D.

    Americans were encouraged to show their support for police officers, and many took up that call in Scott County.

    Deputies were treated to breakfast and lunch by local businesses and schools.

    Recent findings show 780,000 Americans pin on a badge every day and go out to serve and protect.

    On average, between around 100 and 200 officers die in the line of duty each year.

    With recent months of polarizing events, pitting some citizens against police, law enforcement officials say this day of appreciation means a lot.

    “It was good. I mean a lot of times when people deal with us they don’t see the positive side of law enforcement sometimes,” said Senior Deputy Matt Scroggins with the Scott County Sheriff’s Office. “So it’s nice to know that people realize we’re not all bad guys.”

    Students also wrote thank you cards to officers which now hang at the sheriff’s office.

    01/09/15 – Greater Kansas City AFL-CIO …. For more information on National Law Enforcement Appreciation Day, please click here to watch the public service …

    The National Fraternal Order of Police has partnered with C.O.P.S. and law enforcement associations across America on a National Law Enforcement Appreciation Day scheduled for

    January 9th, 2015. Please share this information with members in your states.

    In light of recent negativity directed toward law enforcement nationally, there is a need to show law enforcement officers that our citizens recognize the difficult and sometimes impossible career they have chosen, in public service to us all.

    Can you imagine going to work each day and wondering if you’ll survive your shift and see your family that night? Most people can’t. But in law enforcement, this is a fact of life. Each day 780,000 police officers across our country put a badge on and go to work knowing they may face extremely dangerous situations. Yet, they go to work anyway. Being a law enforcement officer is not just a job, it is a calling. The pay is low, the hours can be terrible, and there is sometimes little appreciation for what you do. Yet, they do it anyway.

    What the public doesn’t see is the lengths law enforcement takes to keep our communities safe. On average, between 105 and 203 officers die in the line of duty each year, 50,000 officers are assaulted in the line of duty each year, 14,000 officers are injured in the line of duty each year, and over 300 officers commit suicide each year. There is no other profession in the world, except possibly the military, where you will find these kinds of statistics.

    Being a law enforcement officer truly is an impossible job. You must be professional, courteous, caring and yet be ready to protect the public at all times. You must be prepared to make life and death decisions at a moment’s notice. You take an amazing amount of abuse at times, but have to view this abuse as just “part of the job.” You do not have the liberty to express your emotions during many situations.

    Law enforcement officers play such an integral part in our society; without them, chaos would reign. Have you ever thought about what you would do if you were in trouble – a car accident, a home invasion, an assault – and you did not have someone to call for help? No matter how much abuse law enforcement takes, they continue to do their job, and do it well. They are the guardians of our way of life and they deserve our support.

    On January 9th, we call our nation’s citizens to action in support of law enforcement. Those citizens who appreciate law enforcement and are discouraged about the negative attention being given, are encouraged take time on Friday, January 9th to show their support. Support can be shown in a number of ways:

    • Change your profile picture on social media to the .jpg image at the beginning of this proposal
    • See a police officer? Thank a police officer
    • Wear blue clothing in support of law enforcement
    • Send a card of support to your local police department or state agency
    • Share a positive story about a positive law enforcement experience on social media
    • Ask children in your community write letters in support of law enforcement
    • Participate in Project Blue Light. Proudly display your blue light in support of law enforcement.
    • Organize an event or a rally in support of your law enforcement officers
    • Advertise your support through local media outlets/billboards
    • Post the public service announcement supplied by C.O.P.S. to your law enforcement’s webpage or social media pages
