Editor's note: On Thursday morning, June 16, The Sentinel received a
"last statement" via mail from a man who insinuated that he planned to
set himself on fire in front of the Cheshire County Court House, and an
explanation of why he intended to do so. Through further reporting, The
Sentinel is confident this is from the victim of Wednesday afternoon's
fire, although police have not yet received confirmation of his identity.
The 15-page statement is printed in full, except for two redacted items:
The names of the man's mother and his three children. Details will be posted
as they become available.

A man walks up
to the main door of the Keene, N.H. County Courthouse, douses himself with
gasoline and lights a match. And everyone wants to know why. Apparently
the old general was right. Death is not the worst of evil.
I am due in court the
end of the month. The ex-wife lawyer wants me jailed for back child support.
The amount ranges from $2,200. to $3,000. depending on who you ask. Not
big money after being separated over ten years and unemployed for the last
two. But I do owe it. If I show up for court without the money and the
lawyer say jail, then the judge will have the bailiff take me into custody.
There really are no surprises on how the system works once you know how
it actually works. And it does not work anything like they taught you in
high school history or civics class.
I could have made a phone
call or two and borrowed the money. But I am done being bullied for being
a man. I cannot believe these people in Washington are so stupid to think
they can govern Americans with an iron fist. Twenty-five years ago, the
federal government declared war on men. It is time now to see how committed
they are to their cause. It is time, boys, to give them a taste of war.
There are two kinds of
bureaucrats you need to know; the ones that say and the ones that do. The
bridge between them is something I call The Second Set of Books. I have
some figures of the success of their labors. You and I are in these numbers,
as well as our spouses and children. But first let me tell you how I ended
up in this rabbit hole.
My story starts with
the infamous slapping incident of April 2001. While putting my four year
old daughter to bed, she began licking my hand. After giving her three
verbal warnings I slapped her. She got a cut lip. My wife asked me to leave
to calm things down.
When I returned hours
later, my wife said the police were by and said I could not stay there
The next day the police
came by my work and arrested me, booked me, and then returned me to work.
Later on Peter, the parts manager, asked me if I and the old lady would
be able to work this out. I told him no. I could not figure out why she
had called the police. And bail condition prevented me from asking her.
So I no longer trusted her judgment.
After six months of me
not lifting a finger to save this marriage, she filed for divorce. Almost
two years after the incident, I was talking with her on the phone. She
told me that night she had called a mental health provider we had for one
of the kids. Wendy, the counselor told my then wife that if she did not
call the police on me, then she too would be arrested.
made sense. She is the type that believes that people in authority actually
know what they are talking about. If both she and I were arrested, what
would happen to our three children, ages 7,4 and 1? They would end up in
State custody. So my wife called the police on her husband to protect the
children. And who was she protecting the kids from? Not her husband, the
father of these children. She was protecting them from the State of New
This country is run by
The police sergeant Freyer
screwed this up from the get go. When I got the Court Complaint form the
box was checked that said Domestic Violence Related. I could not believe
that slapping your child was domestic violence. So I looked up the law.
Minor custodial children are exempted. Apparently, 93% of American parents
still spank, slap or pinch their children. To this day I still wonder if
Freyer would have made this arrest if it had been the mother that had slapped
Labeling someone's action
as domestic violence in American in the 21st century is akin to labeling
someone a Jew in Germany in the 1930's. The entire legal weight of the
state is coming down on him. But I consider myself lucky. My family was
destroyed. But that poor bastard in Germany had his family literally annihilated.
Arrests are mandatory
for the police in New Hampshire for domestic violence. That is not law.
That is police department policy. Laws come from the Legislature and the
Governor's office together. God only knows where these policies come from.
The State's Attorney General also has a mandatory arrest protocol for domestic
violence. I call these policies, procedures and protocols The Second Set
of Books. You never cover the Second Set of Books your junior year in high
school. That because we are not suppose to have a Second Set of Books.
This is America-we have the rule of law.
I am a regular guy, a
coffee and cheeseburger type of fellow. As remarkable as my life has been,
I figure that what happens to me must be happening to others as well. I
was 48 years old when I got arrested here for my first time. So I went
looking for the arrest numbers for domestic violence, this new group that
I had unwilling joined. I could not find anything. So I wrote the U.S.
Dept. of Justice in Washington. They wrote back that they did not keep
track of domestic violence arrests. The FBI keeps track of all other crimes.
How come not domestic violence? I thought some low level clerk was blowing
At the time, I had mailing
addresses in both New Hampshire and Massachusetts. So I wrote to all six
Congressional offices, the two Senators from each state and the two Congressman.
They like doing favors for constituents hoping you will favorably remember
their name in the voting booth. All six offices reported back the same
thing. They do not know how many arrests for domestic violence have been
made. I immediately knew something was wrong. And I also knew this was
not going to be good.
Improvise, adapt and
overcome. The Army teaches that to every soldier it trains. They say that
no battle plan survives the first five minutes of combat. So your people
on the ground had better be able to think for themselves. Taking casualties
in war is just an occupational hazard. Taking casualties and not accomplishing
your mission is a disaster. After 21 years of Army service, I am pretty
good at improvising.
The first thing I found
was a study not of domestic violence arrests but of domestic violence injuries
for 18 unnamed states and the D.C. in the year 2000. In the study 51% of
the injuries were 'no injuries'. So I knew I had a study of police reports.
Who else but a police officer would record no injuries? I populated that
out to the 50 states and came up with 874,000 arrest in the year 2000.
I had originally populated
the number back to 1994 when the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) was
enacted into law. I would later find out these arrests stated with the
U.S. Attorney General's Task Force of Domestic Violence ten years earlier
in 1984. As individual states data became available for various years and
states, I would incorporated in to my informal study. The number I have
now in 2011 is 36 million adults have been arrested for domestic violence.
I have a gut feeling this number could be as high as 55 million. But I
only have data to 36 million. So 36 million it stays. And there is a really
cool trick you can do once you have this number. You can find out how many
American men. Women and children ended up homeless because of these arrests.
Most of the domestic
violence statistics I have seen break down with 75% male and 25% female
being arrested. So I am going to used the male pronoun for the one arrested
spouse and the female pronoun for the victim spouse. That should make the
domestic violence feminists ecstatic-man bad, woman good. But that is okay
because that is probably the last nice thing I am going to do for them
When then a man is arrested
for domestic violence, one of two things can happen. If they are only dating
and have separate apartments, then he can head home. But if they are living
together, then this fellow has a real problem. Bail conditions and then
a possible protective or restraining order prevent him from being with
her. So he needs to find a new place to live, at least until the charges
are resolved. The King of his Castle is no longer allowed into his castle.
A feminist name Pence who wrote that was absolutely giddy at that outcome.
So he can get his own place if he has enough money.
Or he can move in with
his mother, his sister or another relative. He might have a girl friend
who would let him stay with her. And if none of this is possible, well
then I guess he is sleeping in his car down by the river.
If he has minor children,
money will soon turn into an issue. Most men I know do not mind paying
child support. They want their kids to have food on their plates, clothes
on their backs, and a roof over their heads. But it does stress that man's
finances. Child support is usually 33% of the man's gross income. Withholding
for taxes, social security and health insurance can range up to 28% of
his gross paycheck. So a man making $500 a week gross has only $825 monthly
left over after withholding and child support. That is not enough money
for an apartment here in Central Massachusetts. That does not include other
expenses like heating, electric, gas, groceries, telephone, cable, car
payment and car insurance. So he is in a financial hole. Estimates of homeless
men run 82% to 94%. I am going to round that down to 80%.
After the King has left
his castle, his wife runs into a problem. She was use to getting his whole
paycheck for the household. Now she get a third for child support. Figure
they both work and made the same money, her budget went from 100% down
to 66%. If she was running the house on $3,045. a month when the King was
home, now without him she only has $2,220. Most households in America cannot
withstand a 27% hit on the household account. She'll juggle the bills but
eventually most wives figure out that they can pay all the smaller bills
if they just does not pay the big bill. That would be the rent or the mortgage.
So six to nine months after the King is out of the castle, the Queen, the
Princes and the Princesses are also on the street. Domestic violence feminists
state that 50% of victim spouses of domestic violence end up homeless at
some time in their lives.
The last group of homeless
from these arrests are children. The domestic violence feminists state
that 70% of domestic violence couple have children. So 50% female times
70% children equals 35%. But children is plural. So we will double to 70%.
(Odd isn't it? They know
that 50% of victim spouses end up homeless and that 70% of them have children.
How can they know the percentages when they do not know how many total
arrests were made? Those people at the U.S. Justice Dept. cannot even pull
off a credible cover-up.)
Men are 0.8, women are
0.5, and children are 0.7 for a grand total of 2.0 homeless Americans for
every domestic violence arrest. Multiply that by 36 million and you get
72 million men, women and children ending up homeless at some point in
their lives over the last 25 years because of these domestic violence arrests.
That is a really large
number even by Washington standards. That is almost 25% of the entire population
of the U.S. using 2010 census figures. Which begs the question did these
homeless people contribute to this latest economic meltdown, or did they
cause it? Because if they did cause it then the recovery will not be measure
in months or years but in decades.
Some of the boys in the
Father's Movement think Congress might have shot themselves in the foot
over this one. Personally, I think they shot themselves some place anatomically
higher. No wonder the Speaker of the House is always crying. The Dummies
on the Potomac.
Twenty-five years ago
the federal government start pushing these arrests on state's legal systems.
Now, we have an economy on the rope. They have thrown a huge amount of
money at banks, big business and local and states government. And we are
still in the mud. But no economist either at the Treasury Dept., Federal
Reserve, universities or think tanks are even looking at the impact of
all these broken families. If that 36 million arrest is correct, then 72
million men and women, have been throw out of the middle class into subsistence
living. Or is the number 55 million and 110 million? No one knows and no
one is even looking. But why should look? According to the Attorney General,
we do not know how many arrests we have made.
And if the Tea Party
is any indication, insurrection is brewing in the land. Just a coincident?
Not likely. This is what happens when the government wipes out the middle
The idea for these arrests
came from something called the Minneapolis Police Experiment (MPE) of 1981-82.
In the experiment police offices were given pads with one of three words
written on them; counsel, send or arrest. Counsel meant the officer was
to try to mediate the couple's spat. Send was to send one of the spouses
out of the house for eight hours as a cooling off period. Arrest was arrest
one of the two spouses. The officer was to do as the top paper on the pad
said to do. The experiment was set up by the Police Foundation and Lawrence
W. Sherman was the lead researcher. The results show counseling resulted
in a future assault in 24% cases, send was 19%, and the arrest option resulted
in a future assault in only 10% of the cases. Perhaps a cheap way of cutting
down future domestic violence.
In 1984 The U. S. Attorney
General's Task Force of Domestic Violence recommended arrest as the primary
weapon in domestic violence assault. Lawrence W. Sherman recommend not
using the arrests because the MPE was just one study and it could be wrong.
They ignored him. And by 1992, 93% of the police departments in the nation
had adopted some form of mandatory arrest in domestic violence cases.
But by 1992 five more
addition studies similar to the MPE became available. Lawrence W. Sherman
reviewed all five studies. Then once again he wrote that the police should
not use arrest. In two of the five studies, they found the same result
as they did in the MPE, that an arrest cut down the odds of a future assault.
But in the other three studies an arrest actually increase the odds of
a future assault. So arresting someone in a domestic violence situation
to cut down on future assaults did not work any better than just flipping
a coin. I do not know if Lawrence W. Sherman is still alive. But fortunately
he wrote a book call Policing Domestic Violence that was published in 1992.
So we have 800,000 American
police officers arresting one in every six adults in the country and throwing
25% of the men, women and children out on the streets in an effort to enforce
a policy that they knew did not work back in1992. And I had always assumed
that you needed a man to really screw something up. Oh well, there goes
another glass ceiling.
Why would they push an
arrest policy that does not work? There are two schools of thought on the
reason why. The first comes from Lawrence W. Sherman. He calls it the Law
of Just Desserts. Revenge for slights and offenses, real or imagined. I
am sure there are some that would argue that women are not vengeful. But
what is that old saying? Hell hath no fury.....
The second idea comes
from the mother of the second wave of feminism. I do speak of the brilliant
Betty Friedan. In the Epilogue Chapter of the 20th Anniversary Edition
of her book The Feminine Mystique, Betty relayed why she resigned as the
first president of the National Organization of Women in 1970. Betty wrote
that she, "was unable to openly fight the man haters and unwilling to front
for them any more..." So man hating bigots no only existed 40 years ago,
they were also grabbing power. Now Washington is funding them. Makes you
wonder what bigots they will fund next. Maybe the Klan?
Feminists had always
claimed that when women took over, we would have a kinder, gentler, more
nurturing world. After 36 million arrests and 72 million evictions what
we got was Joe Stalin.
The third wave of feminists
do not like to call themselves feminists. The word feminist could be perceived
as gender oppression. These third wave of whatever-we-call-you got that
right The treachery of our legal system over the last 25 years may end
up giving all feminists a bad name. Which would make us as bigoted as the
man-hating feminists who got us into this mess to begin with.
So let us talk about
those bureaucrats that do. These are the ones that actually carry out the
evil deeds. I like call them the do-bies.
Any one swept up into
legal mess is usually astonished at what they see. They cannot believe
what the police, prosecutors and judges are doing. It is so blatantly wrong.
Well, I can assure you that everything they do is logical and by the book.
The confusion you have with them is you both are using different sets of
books. You are using the old First Set of Books- the Constitution, the
general laws or statutes and the court ruling sometime call Common Law.
They are using the newer Second Set of Books. That is the collection of
the policy, procedures and protocols. Once you know what set of books everyone
is using, then everything they do looks logical and upright. And do not
bother trying to argue with me that there is no Second Set of Books. I
have my own copies at home. Or at least a good hunk of the important part
I got my Second Set of
Books when I sued the Jaffrey NH police department. Under the discovery
rule, I write them with the material I wanted and it would arrive in the
mail a few weeks later. I got the Police Academy Training Manual. I got
the Department's Policy and Procedure Manual. I got the no drop protocol
that the attorney general sent to all his or her prosecutors. I even got
the domestic violence protocols for the court system, one hundred pages
worth. Once you read it the material, then you will know what the police,
prosecutors and judges will do. They are completely predictable once you
know what set of books they are using.
The police academy training
manual states that an arrest in a domestic violence call is the preferred
response. They cite the Minneapolis Police Experiment (MPE) as its justification.
But the author of the MPE, Lawrence Sherman, said do not use arrest because
five follow up studies show that it did not work. The would be a violation
of the 4th Amendment in the First Set of Books against unreasonable search
and seizure. Then there is that whole issue of whether the police have
the right to arrest for any reason other than they believe a crime was
The Jaffrey Police Department
Policy and Procedures Manual states that if a wife says she does not want
her husband arrested, the police are to ignore her, arrest the husband,
and get with the prosecutor to see what they can work out. In other words,
make the arrest and then see if you can Mickey Mouse it. The wife is eligible
for spousal immunity. If she invokes it, then no statement she mades, written
or oral, are admissible because she cannot be cross examined about it under
oath. ( Did you say that? What did you mean when you said that?) With no
statements the police have no probable cause in most cases to make an arrest.
Also a violation of the 4th amendment in the First Set of Books.
The actor Nickolas Cage
was drunk in New Orleans with his wife. Everyone else is drunk in New Orleans,
so why should Nick be any different. He and his wife were arguing over
which house the rented for their stay. Nick grab his wife's arm and started
to lead her to his house. The police arrested Nick for domestic violence.
His wife was stunned. That was not domestic violence. "Nothing we can do,"
the police explained to her. "Just following orders."
That is an accurate explanation
for victims, even if they do not think of themselves as victims. The police
have a zero tolerance towards any physical contact. Things might get worse
in the future is the feminist logical for this present iron fist approach
to domestic relations. I would have to agree with them. After all the arrests,
poverty, homelessness and misery, I can assure you-things are going to
But that nothing we can
do, just following orders the officers explain always sounds so timid and
lame. The police need to punch their explanation up a bit, make it more
authoritarian. And there is a quick, low cost way of doing it. The police
officers only need to say it in its original German. The state Constitution
in NH said the prosecutors job is to promote justice. The Attorney Generals
protocols said that domestic violence case are no-drop cases. (Unless,
of course, they take the Deal. Continue the case for a year, go to counseling,
and everything falls off the books after the year. They
did after all find some
way of getting rid of all these cases.)
The Attorney General
can hire, fire, layoff, promote, demote, commend or award bonuses. The
constitution is some old, quaint, dusty document up in the Statehouse some
where. So which one do you think is going to get obeyed?
Prosecutors are funny.
Some, maybe most, have egos the size of Cape Cod. But of the three, police,
prosecutor and judges, prosecutors have the least protection. Micheal Nifong,
the prosecutor in the Duke Lacrosse Rape Case, was fired, disbarred, convicted
of a crime, and actually jailed for trying to enforce the no-drop prosecution
protocol for sexual assault in the Duke case.
The prosecutor in my
criminal case fared a little better. I filed a complaint with his boss
for summoning my two daughters, ages 7 and 4, to court. I had already conceded
that the facts were not in dispute. The trial would be about the law. No
witness were need much less a couple of toddlers. He still summoned them.
(The Second Set of Books tells the prosecutors to get a sympathetic face
in front of the judge or jury. What's more sympathetic than toddlers.)
The prosecutor could not refute my allegation because I enclosed a copy
of the trial transcript. I had to pay for the transcript. When the prosecutor
read it, he gave his two weeks notice and then blew town. That transcript
was the best
$46 I had ever spent
in this life.
There is a name for what
happens when a bureaucrat is destroyed by the First Set of Books for attempting
to enforce the Second Set of Books. It is called the Abu Ghraib Syndrome.
The people within the law enforcement community no longer seem to know
the difference between the law, with its checks and balances, and the policies,
procedure and protocols that constitute The Second Set of Books. In some
cases you do not even know who wrote the policy, procedure or protocol.
It could have been the local high school gym teacher for all anyone knows.
Many of these bureaucrats are eventually going to learn the different between
the First and the Second Set of Books. And my guess is that many of them
are going to learn it the hard way. Because the only checks and balances
in The Second Set of Books is The First Set of Books.
Judges routinely use
our children as bargaining chips. Get the adult into counseling, continue
the case for a year, and then drop it. This will open up the docket for
the new arrests coming in next week. These judges that use our children
are not honorable. Which is why I never use the term 'Your Honor' any more.
I just call them judge.
Alex Baldwin, the actor,
wrote that you have never seen a coward until you have seen a Los Angeles
County judge. I call my judges-Sullivan, Arnold and even Runyon-cowards,
too. When I first started observing them, nothing made sense. Arnold was
completely infuriated when he was maneuvered into ruling not guilty. He
verbally went up and down me so many times I lost count. What was the big
deal? If I was not guilty just say and then we could all go home. But that
was back in the days before I knew about The Second Set of Books.
I lost visitation with
my two daughters when I got arrested. One was the victim-the other was
the witness. After a not guilty, I expected to get visitation with my girls.
But the divorce judge, Sullivan, decreed that counseling was in order and
they would decide when we would reunite. I told the judge that the decision
on whether these two girls had a father or a fatherless childhood was not
leaving this courthouse. There would be a couple of reason for that decision.
First, by then I knew
of the Second Set of Books. As much as I had prayed for the return of my
children, I knew that this counseling might get thrown in the way. Judges
are addicted to counseling like a meth-head is addict to crystal meth.
Sullivan wrote in the divorce decree that he envision only one or two meetings
with the counselor. There is no counseling done in the first meeting or
two. It is intake-who's the players and what are the issues. But Sullivan
was not interested in counseling. He merely wanted to unload the decision
out of habit. And if we do not shut them down now, they will be doing it
to our kids in twenty years from now when they have little ones running
around the house.
Second, just exactly
where does the buck stop with our legal system? Police have to make an
arrest. The prosecutor has to pursue the case. Judges now also walk a away
without rendering a verdict, and passing the buck does not constitute a
decision. Can those mental health counselors slide the decision over to
someone else? Just where does this end? Who is responsible? Who is accountable?
The mental health crowd
is the third reason I said no. Some people think they are geniuses with
their Masters and PH D's. Others think they are so wacky that they call
them fruit loops. Well, I have a third name for them. Suckers. They did
not get hired for their medical ability. They got these because they were
willing to take these cases off the judge's hands. Which has done nothing
for the credibility for their profession. We are not here to help-we are
here to unload. And they created a liability that did not previously existed.
If a judge releases a defendant and he goes kills someone, that judge or
the judiciary cannot be sued. But a mental health worker, and their employer
certainly can be held liable. Our judiciary is now using the mental health
field like a ten dollar whore.
I sued Monadnock Family
Services to make them go away. I told their lawyer Byron that they were
a legitimate target for men. We settled for no money. They would have nothing
to do with this reconciliation. The counselor was released. And they would
no longer get involved in any domestic violence cases.
Every time we ended back
in court over whatever squabbles, I would ask Judge Sullivan for my children
back. The decision belong to the counselors he would tell me. But he knew
he had screwed up. I could see it in his face. But he would not fix it.
He would not step out of that box those domestic violence/sexual assault
advocates had built for him. After five years, he retired to a part time
position at the Littleton courthouse 120 miles away.
So when guys like Alex
Baldwin and I call judges cowards, we have legitimate reasons for doing
so. It is not good for judges to be called coward. It is unlikely that
it is good for the rest of us.
I do not claim to have
all The Second Set of Book. I know of one book that I do not have. And
I would have love to read that one. That would be the seminar that the
domestic violence and sexual assault advocates put on periodically for
legal personnel including judges. These advocates are camped outside every
state, not federal, courthouse in America. The U.S. Dept of Justice provides
50-100% of their funding depending on the program. They have three day
seminars at resorts where everything is paid for except the liquor. Judges
in NH are ordered to attend. Neither Sullivan or Arnold would confirm or
deny they had attended. They actually said nothing. It must be like the
Masons where they will not say anything about the organization until you
show them the secret hand sign.
Supreme Court Judge Louis
Brandeis once wrote that the best description of a judge is the impartial
guardian of the rule of law. How does three days of wine, women and song
contribute to impartiality? It does not. So it should not have been any
surprise that they would not answer me. After all, they were not on trial.
I was. But they are going to be. They were suppose to protect to rule of
law not collaborate in its demise. They have failed miserably.
A guardian ad litem is
an attorney appointed for a child. The attorney solely represents the child.
I got one when I was first separated to get a neutral pair of eyes and
ears on the family. I was disappointed in his findings.
A few years later, another
guardian was appointed for one of the kids. A regular report filed with
the Court painted me as some sort violent psychopath. I thought that was
uncalled for seeing as we had never met. It start a flurry of nasty letters
between until we both came to the conclusion that this was not about us.
We ended on a friendly note.
At a Court hearing later
on I approached him. I asked him if he had had any domestic violence training.
He said yes, that it was required to become certified as a guardian ad
litem. Another chapter for The Second Set of Books that I never managed
to acquire.. So men, if you were thinking about getting a guardian ad litem
for an unbiased assessment, then you should ask for the domestic violence
material that certified the guardian. And do not worry that you are not
sure what you are looking for. It will stand right out.
There are more sections
of The Second Set of Books. Medical personnel are supposed to report suspected
domestic violence. The college professor Angela Davis has a story of a
Latino couple in California getting in trouble feeding the dog his liver
for dinner. Mental health employees are also required. Think of Wendy threatening
our kids with foster care. Teachers, day care providers, the list just
goes on and on. The East German secret police, the Stazi, had 25% of the
population on record as informers. The United States is not that high yet,
but we are still growing.
prosecutors and judges-are suppose to protect us. They are checks and balances
to prevent injustice. That is why we spend so much money of police training.
But if the police screw it up, the prosecutor can catch it. If the prosecutor
misses it then the judge can step in to fix it. But if all three have been
compromised, then what does one need to do to get justice? Go to the appeals
court or the Supreme Court? That seem a little ridiculous particularly
when the zero tolerance has arrests for something as trivial as touching.
On one hand we have the
law. On the other hand we have what we are really going to do-the policies,
procedures and protocols. The rule of law is dead. Now we have 50 states
with legal systems as good as any third world banana republic. Men are
demonized and the women and children end up as suffering as well.
So boys, we need to start
burning down police stations and courthouses. The Second Set of Books originated
in Washington. But the dirty deeds are being carried out by our local police,
prosecutors and judges. These are the people we pay good money to protect
us and our families. And what do we get for our tax money? Collaborators
who are no different than the Vichy of France or the Quislings of Norway
during the Second World War. All because they go along to get along. They
are an embarrassment, the whole lot of them. And they need to be held accountable.
So burn them out. In the last 25 years they have arrested one in six adults
in this country and forced 25% of the men, women and children into homelessness.
In 50 years it will be one in three adults arrested and 50% of the men,
women and children ending up homeless. Most of our kids will live to the
age of 68 years old. As bad as it was for you, your children will have
twice the odds of it happening to them.
Some of you will say
that 50% homelessness sounds absurd. But 25% is absurd and that is already
here. There is no evidence that the police, courts, or government is planning
to do anything different in the immediate future. And they will not do
anything different until we make it so uncomfortable that they must change.
Bureaucracy at its worst. So burn them out. This is too important to be
using that touchy-feeling coaching that is so popular with business these
days. You need to flatten them, like Wile E. Coyote. They need to be taught
never to replace the rule of law. BURN-THEM-OUT!
Most of the police stations
built in New England over the last 20 years are stone or brick. Fortunately,
the roofs are still wood. The advantage of fire on the roof is that it
is above the sprinklers. But even the sprinklers going off work to our
advantage. There is no way they can work in a building with six inches
of water. And I am certain we will disrupt their momentum once they start
working out of a FEMA trailers. If they still do not get the message, then
burn down the trailers.
The easiest way of burning
a building is with the Molotov cocktail. It was invented by the Finns when
the Soviets invaded in 1939. You fill a bottle with gasoline and stuff
a rag in the end for a wick. You light the wick and throw bottle, It shatters
on impact spraying gas everywhere and the wick ignites the gas. Simple,
readily available, and effective. And only two things to remember.
First, use a glass bottle.
Thinner glass is better than thicker glass. You want it to shatter on impact.
When I was teaching a kid at the high school on the West Side Worcester,
MA. threw a Molotov cocktail into his school. Fortunately, he used a plastic
bottle. It burned about three square inches of carpeting. I had to laugh
when I said to myself, "Thank God for dumb kids."
Second, you need to tie
the rag to the bottle. Nothing worse that throwing a Molotov cocktail,
landing where you wanted it, and having it shatter perfectly. Then you
noticed the wick had fallen out on the way to the target. No wick-no fire.
Some of these building
will have brick faces and metal roofs. Just break a window and throw the
Molotov cocktail inside. Carpets, furniture, computer plastic, even paint
on the walls will burn. It is okay if the sprinkler goes off. I wonder
if you can get hip waders over a gun belt?
We had a kid in my hometown
that burned down the old junior high school. He walked up to the front
door one night with a can of lighter fluid. The applicator on the end squirts
the lighter fluid out. He squirted under the door and along the seams and
lit a match. The kid took out the entire old part of the building. Why
are kids so competent when it is something they should not be doing?
There will be some casualties
in this war. Some killed, some wounded, some captured. Some of them will
be theirs. Some of the casualties will be ours.
Now, nobody wants to
get killed. But let us look at your life. You are broke after paying child
support. She and the kids are not doing any better. None of you are middle
class any more. You have no say in the kids education, their health treatment,
you may not even have visitation with your sons and daughters. And everything
you thought you knew to be true-the rule of law, the sanctity of the of
the family, the belief that government was there to nurture your brood-all
turned out to be a lie. Face it boys, we are no longer fathers. We are
just piggy banks.
So you are not losing
anything by picking up the Molotov cocktail. It may be too late for us.
But without something changing, your kids will have double the odds of
it happening to them. That will knock them out of the middle class again,
providing they ever get back in. And their kids, your grandchildren, will
end up damaged goods before it is over. So it is okay to run. You just
need to turn around and run at them. They are no way as imposing as they
seem. They only do what they do for a paycheck.
Television would make
us believe that people get arrested because of fingerprints, DNA, facial
recognition, and instruments that can tell where a substance was made and
here is the local distributors. It is Hollywood crap. Most of the people
in prison are there for one key reason. They could not keep their mouths
shut. They told someone. That someone told others. The cops hear it and
start looking at them for a suspect. That how it works in real life.
This need to confess
seems to be primeval. Just human nature. But if you cannot keep a secret,
do not expect the one you tell to keep their mouth shut. There is only
three people I know for certain they will keep their mouths shut. That
would be Jesus, Mary and Joseph.
I only managed to get
the main door of the Cheshire County Courthouse in Keene, NH. I would appreciate
it if some of you boys would finish the job for me. They harmed my children.
The place is evil. So take it out
Some where along the
line I picked up the crazy notion that it is better to be dead as a free
man than to live as a serf. The government needs to be a little more careful
about what they teach in our schools. And bring a can of spray paint to
these fires. Paint the word COLLABORATORS ( two L's with an S on the end)
on the building before you burn it. Maybe we can shame them back to the
rule of law. And we do want the police to know exactly who burned the building.
Then the police can start interviewing the usually suspects, all 36 million
We have covered the do-bies.
Now let us look at the bureaucrats that say-ers.
The Second Set of Books
originated in Office of Violence Against Women (OVW) which is part of the
United States Department of Justice. Some of these policies, procedures
and protocol were developed locally. But the local results would be sent
up to OVW and, if approved, would disperse it out to all 50 states. They
are smart, clever, bigoted and able to lie as well as any politician that
ever called Washington home. In other words, they have now become Washington
insiders. But what makes them so uniques is their anger towards men, any
man. They are so twisted in their hatred of men that they are positively
scary. And it is not what they are doing to men that makes them frightening.
You would expect that. No, it is what they are doing to the women and children
that makes them so twisted.
When the Pentagon drops
a bomb on innocent civilians the military calls it Collateral Damage. It
sounds better than, "Yeah, we killed a bunch of women and children." Those
poor, innocent, stupid civilians have always been caught in the middle
since the time we were fighting with rocks.. Your wife and kids are Collateral
Damage in the war against you, the man in the family. For 25 years these
feminists at OVAW have been willing to sacrifice the women and children
to get you. And they cannot claim ignorance about what they are doing.
Under the VAWA the federal government is funding at least 1,800 homeless
shelters. As long as the Office for Violence Against Women exists in the
U.S. Department Justice , no American man, women or child will be safe
in their own home.
If you ask these feminists
why are the shelters all full, they will not say because of all the arrests.
The shelters are full because of men. But they knew from the beginning
that this was not man bad-woman good thing. The year was 1976. Two things
would happen that year.
First, someone at the
U.S. Dept of Justice decided to count the dead bodies. In 1975 there were
1522 women killed in domestic violence. And for men killed in 1975? The
dead for men was 1506.
Statistically equal a
friend tells me so.
If you had asked me before
the study, I would have assumed that women were getting the worst of it.
But I would be looking at it by genders. What I should have been looking
at was species, homosapiens, human beings. Men are human-women are human.
Being the same species you would expect the same results from both genders.
And that is exactly what the dead bodies told us.
The second thing that
happened in 1976 was the first domestic violence survey was released. It
was so new the time that they called it family violence. Murray Straus
of UNH and Richard Gellars from a school in RI were the researchers. They
did not find two perpetrators of domestic violence, but three. Men initiated
violence 25.7% of the time: women 25.2%, and the other 49.1% was the two
going after each at the same time. These two people going after each other
at the same time is well recognized in law. The law in NH calls that mutual
combat. Men are human. Women are human. And once again we found both genders
acting the same manner.
So how did we end up
with the theory of man bad-woman good that the government at all levels
is using? The feminist writer Susan Brownmiller wrote In Our Time that,"
the way you get funding and church donations is to talk about the pure
victims. If you talk about the impurity of the victim, the sympathy vanishes."
If women get to be good then men get what is left-bad. Man bad-woman good
was originally a funding raising technique. After 35 years, it has turned
into official government dogma at all levels, from the local cop on the
beat to the White House. Men need to be punished, restrained and retrained.
Your wives and children are, unfortunately, just collateral damage in this
effort to punish men. So you were not dreaming it. There really is a government
pogrom against men.
When a man batters or
kills, there is no excuse. When a woman commits the same act, there is
nothing but excuses. Simple though inaccurate. But there is one redeeming
aspect to men being demonized. Now we men can act like devils. And we do
not even need to apologize for it. Men are going to start acting just like
they made us out to be. As an old high school semi-punk I can assure you
boys of one thing. This is going to be fun. You guys are going to end up
laughing like hyenas.
The money funded under
the VAWA is split in two when it leaves the Treasury. Part goes the Health
and Human Services for fund these domestic violence homeless shelters.
If that 36 million number is correct, and it is all that we have, then
the 1.44 million arrests a year will be made producing 2.88 million homeless
Americans each year. Women and children constitute 60% of these homeless
people, 1.7 million Americans a year. Shutting down these shelters would
be cruel. What would these women and children do then? Go live under a
bridge. No, we are stuck with these shelters for a while. But there is
one thing that Congress needs to fix when they fund them again.
These shelters do not
allow men on the property let alone inside the residences. Why is it against
the law to use federal money on organizations that discriminate against
black, Jews, gays or even women but it is okay to do so against men? Men
contributed half that tax money. Eight years ago a man in California fled
with his children after the police warned him to get out after they had
arrested the wife and mother. None of the shelters would take him and the
kids in because he was a man. I wonder if this would survive a legal gender
discrimination challenge in a federal court?
A society without men
is freakier than a world without blacks or Jews. That is not to say blacks
or Jews are any less worthy. It just that there are more men in the world
than blacks or Jews even if you combined them. If these feminist had to
deal with men on a regular basis, then maybe the country would not be in
the pickle we are in now.
There is a third reason
to end this discrimination, something of a more practical nature. Apparently,
some women like to have sex with men. But men are barred from the property.
Suddenly, that 15 year boy two doors down starts looking real good. It
might even be fun breaking in this new meat. So this woman driven into
insolvency by the push for domestic violence arrests now finds herself
charged as a pedophile because someone barred men from her world. With
domestic violence advocates as friends, who needs enemies.
This shelters came up
with a novel approach to fixing the pedophile problem. Male children over
the age of thirteen are barred from staying there. Too troublesome. The
family broke up when the father was thrown out of the house. Now a second
break up is happening with the teenage boys. Perhaps a relative has one
bed available. Maybe the family of a high school friend would take him
in their home. If neither option works then that is okay. He can
move in with his father. Then they will both be sleeping in the car down
by the river.
Children of these parents
also suffer. They used to have their own bedroom in a safe town with good
schools. First they have a shelter, then Section 8 public housing. An urban
school. Maybe good-maybe not. Kids learn how to be tough in an urban environment.
The kids might go bad or they could come out just fine. But there will
be no clunky car as a teenager. There will be no saving fund for college.
There will be no monetary gift to use as a down payment for a starter home.
This tradition of the older generation giving the younger generation a
financial leg up has been ruin due to the older generation's lack of money.
Financially, the older generation is merely treading water. It will take
generations after these present two generations to repair the economic
damage to these families.
So we are stuck with
funding these shelters for a while. These women and children have no place
left to go. Some of you guys may think that these feminist caused the problem
and then created the solution. But homeless shelters are not a solution.
They are just barely a band aid.
The remaining money under
VAWA goes to the United States Department of Justice for the Office of
Violence Against Women (OVW). As long as OVW exists then the government
is at war with men. As long as there is a pogrom against men, then women
and children are going to end up as collateral damage. So there is no need
for discussion about OVW going. The only thing we need to figure out is
which of the two ways we can use to get rid of them-the easy way or the
And boys, do not try
to burn down Washington's Dept. of Justice Building in an effort to get
rid of the Office of Violence Against Women. Their offices are over at
The easy way is using
Congress. The VAWA comes up for funding every five to seven years. Next
time it comes up, Congress votes no and everyone at the OVW gets a pink
slip in late September. Nice and simple except nothing is simple in Washington.
We, the people out here in the sticks, do not always know what the dynamics
are in Washington. There might be one method of getting Congress on course.
Have Congress demand that the Attorney General get, and release the arrests
figures. Or have the President order it. He is usually fearless after he
makes up his mind. And this is too large and too well known to continue
the Washington plausible deniable routine. Then they will know how much
trouble they are in because of these arrests.
There are 220 million
adults 18 or older in this country of both sexes. If my figure of 36 million
is correct, then that is 16.4% of the adults have been arrested. It could
be as high as 55 million or 25%. It might be as low as 22 million or 10%.
Whatever the number there are two things that Congress should know. First,
is the fellow who discovered the arrests in Minneapolis back in 1992 said
do not use it because it does not work. And second, the people arrested
now constitute a Fifth Column here in the United States. Our loyalty to
Washington is gone. But what did these genuises on the Potomac expect?
They have harmed our children. If they think Al Qaeda is a pain in the
ass, wait to they see what Americans can do once their fuse is lit.
I am certain the Attorney
General will sit for months on the request for the number of domestic violence
arrests. Then he will explain that they do not readily have the number
and that some sort of Manhattan Project effort will be needed in time and
money. Nonsense. When Washington started these arrests in 1984 over 6.3
personal computers were sold here in the U.S. That figure does not include
all the mini's, midi's and mainframe computers sold that year. There is
no way they can pretend that this data does not exist in electronic storage.
A request to Ohio for the arrests 1984-2010 would tie up a state clerk
for an hour, including their 15 minute coffee break. Time for the truth
boys and girls. Because this is not going away.
The hard way is more
time consuming, cost more money and is full of headaches. Because the only
way of removing a department from the federal government without the consent
of Congress is to take out the entire federal government.
The first time I heard
that, I said that is ridiculous. We cannot run this country without a federal
government. But we will replace the old government with something new and
improved. The new government would honor the debts incurred by the old
government. There are a lot of useful reasons for starting with a clean
The bipartisan debt commission
released their recommendation for cleaning up the $14 trillion we have
borrowed over the years. Convention wisdom has it that Congress has no
stomach for any of the recommendations.
But a new government
could install those recommendation on day one. Three years later, most
Americans will not remember that anything is different. The old government
laid off its employees when it closed. The new government is hiring. But
instead of 65,000 employees at the Dept. of Education, the new government
is only hiring 45,000. Instead of an average federal wage of $70,000 a
year, the new average will be $52,000. The new government will have to
write a tax code. Everyone pays 15% with no deductions. How many IRS employees
could you get rid of if there were no more deductions? Any thing is possible
with a new government.
a elected government is considered treason. Treason is punishable by death
here in the United States. But there is one way of over throwing the government.
That is through the ballot box. Then it is not treason but democracy. Allegedly,
Washington is in favor of democracy, particularly if their candidate wins.
There is no legal mechanism
in the Constitution or the Federal code of the United States for dissolving
the government of the United States. So that is what we need first. Congress
would need to write it. We get them to do it through the ballot initiative.
A ballot initiative is
when enough registered voters sign a petition to get a question on the
ballot for the next election. The following would be a sample of what the
question would look like in New Hampshire.
That all elected representatives
from the state of New Hampshire to both houses of the United States Congress
are to propose and advance a bill that would set up a legal mechanism to
dissolve the United States government should the people decide to do so
in a general election by a simple majority.
If this initiative passes
in all 50 states then Congress will be stuck. They will have to write the
law to dissolve. If they do not I suspect within ten years they will be
standing in a stairwell at the British or French embassy with a suitcase
in hand waiting to get to a rooftop helicopter. I doubt if they will be
thinking about the humiliation of being thrown out of the country. They
will be far too busy worrying about what will happen if the mob gets their
hands on them.
Washington has not got
a friend in the world. Even the British and Israelis loath them now. Kind
of a bad time to be losing domestic support. And what they done over the
last 25 years? They have wiped out the middle class pandering to a special
interest group of bigots. And in typical Washington fashion, they did not
even know they did it.
This Ivy League inbreeding
in Washington has produced an elite that knows what best. Everyone else
husbands, wives, police officers, prosecutors, judges, attorney generals
and guardian ad litems-are to shut up and do what they are told. The rule
of law is gone, replaced by the policies, procedures and protocols of The
Second Set of Books. Which means the federal government will be going shortly.
For the government being unable to deliver the rule of law is like an auto
mechanic who claims he does not know how to change the engine oil. A certain
minimum competency is required. So it looks like the parents of the Washington
elite were right. One can be too smart for their own good.
Betty Friedan wrote that
the feminist revolution, like any revolution, would have its excesses.
Losing the rule of law is too great to call it a mere excess. It is a catastrophe.
It is the heart, mind and soul between the people and their government.
These feelings of betrayal by losing it may be permanent. I have 21 years
of Army service going back to the Vietnam War. My loyalty to the government
should be a given. It is gone. I am certain it will never return regardless
of how long I might have lived.
It was another woman
that lead us in to this decision to clean house inside the beltway. Something
she taught us fifty years ago. You simply look at those folks in Washington
and then ask yourself the old Ann Landers question, "Am I better off with
them, or without them? Are my children better off with them, or without
them?" They are sinking like stones.
Washington, DC was chose
as the capital because it was the geographical center or the old Colonies.
Today, the geographical center of the country is just west of St. Louis
Missouri. The new government can set the capital anywhere in the United
States it wants. Imagine how many rodents, insects and parasites they could
lose by moving 1500 miles west.
Whether you replace the
federal government or not, men are still going to need a legal defense
center for men. Something like the NAACP used to get black people their
rights. The only checks and balances in the Second Set of Books is the
First Set of Books. Which means lawsuits. Now I know you guys are broke.
Some of you have had your wives and kids thrown into homelessness. So I
completely understand when you tell me that you are broke. But if everyone
who has been arrested throws in $10.00 a year then the legal defense center
will have a war chest of $360 million. You can buy a whole bunch of lawsuit
with that kind of money.
The Ball family has been
supplying sergeants to the Army since at least the Revolutionary War. Elijah
served as a sergeant in Cushing's Regiment at the Battle of Bennington.
His commanding officer was a general from NH with a name of John Stark.
General Start was a clever warrior. He was responsible for the bulk of
the heavy casualties the British suffer at their victory at Bunker Hill.
His orderly, fighting withdrawal allowed the other units on the hill to
not only retreat but collect their wounded on the way out.
General Stark would repeat
this performance on three hill tops outside the village of Bennington VT
one hot August day in 1777. At the end of the battle, the British lost
over 900 men killed or captured. The Colonists suffered 30 dead. Two months
later, the depleted British army would surrender at Saratoga. That victory
at Saratoga would bring the French into the war. John Stark was the most
competent general this country ever produced. For that reason alone his
men loved him.
But as brilliant as he
was on the battlefield, General Stark would become even more famous for
something he said. In 1809 the veterans of Bennington decided to have one
last reunion. A delegation called on the General with his invitation. But
the General was old and frail. He could not attend. But he did send a message,
"You tell the boys I said live free or die. That death is not the worst
of evil." Since 1945 the State of New Hampshire has stamped Live Free or
Die on every pen, coffee mug, license plate and highway sign that they
have gotten their hands on.
I think the General and
his sergeant would be please that his words have elevated from the novelties
I think the General and his sergeant would be please that his words have
elevated from the novelties and bric-a-brac to something more dignified
like a courthouse door. Neither of them would give a second thought to
the mess left over after the fire was extinguished. War has always been
a grim business. Civil wars are usually worse.
But they would be trouble
by the new enemy. Oh, they understood when a government betrays it people.
They took up arms against the super power of their day to get relief for
their grievances. But the enemy we face now is the government that these
men birthed at places like Bennington, Saratoga and Bunker Hill. Government
is no different than the food in a refrigerator. Given enough time both
will go bad.
The smartest person I
knew in this life was my mother. Perhaps that is true of all of us. Maybe
I just got lucky. She was a nurse by trade. She worked in a time when Western
medicine made that final transition from butchery to science. But it would
not be her nursing skills that made her extraordinary. No, it would be
this one incredible knack she had that I had only modest success at mimicking
in my life. If she had something important to say to you, she would say
and then never mention it again. She would talk about it if you raised
the issue. But she never mentioned it twice on her own. And, oddly, you
always heard her.
But she did have one
favorite saying. I must have heard in a thousand times in the eighteen
years I lived under her roof. It always came at the end of the conversation
as she peeled away to see if it was time for Perry Mason or Lawrence Welk.
She would turn her head to the side, and over her shoulder she would say,
"And the only thing you really have in this world is your family." Now,
thanks to the United States Government, neither we nor our children have
. I have three things
to say to my children. First, Daddy loves you. Second, you are my three
most favorite people in the world. And last, that you are to stick together
no matter how old you get or how far apart you live. Because it is like
Grandma always said. The only thing you really have in this world is your
