Taking Liberties: Local farms in fight to stop growing regulation
Foxnews ^ | Published April 26, 2012 | By Douglas Kennedy

Marlene Stasinos believes the best food is local food. “It’s more healthy. It’s less processed,” she says as she walks from her farm stand toward her home in Haverhill, Mass. “It’s just better for you when you eat it.” Stasinos’ family has been farming in and around Haverhill for three generations, but she says backyard farming is under attack.

In July 1929 it remained official Soviet policy that the kulak should not be terrorised and should be enlisted into the collective farms. Joseph Stalin disagreed with this, saying, “Now we have the opportunity to carry out a resolute offensive against the kulaks, break their resistance, eliminate them as a class and replace their production with the production of kolkhozes and sovkhozes.”

This is one of my line in the sand issues. Open defiance and armed resistance no matter the cost.

I smell ICLEI of the UN in this. Why would the town otherwise apparently of a sudden be making such rules. Has to be a cause for every action. Libs, and the ICLEI are everywhere in our business these days for their agenda.

Whatever happened to getting “grandfathered in”?

Folks need to go to court first before acquiescing.

Any fine you get should also indicate the hearing/appeals process. If you don’t want to pay for a lawyer, just go yourself and say you should be grandfathered because the locality hasn’t shown a great enough cause to override that.

Even if you lose, at least you made them work for their efforts a bit.

Article III, section 2 of the organic Constitution defines the kinds of judicial power the courts have:
1. common law
2. equity
3. admiralty
4. maritime
At the common law - a crime exists only when there is a victim with actual damages like a broken arm.

In equity - otherwise known as civil law a private contract is or agreement is involved. For an action to be brought there must be a breach of contract and damages.

Maritime - or commercial contract law originates in the rules of trade upon the high seas between international merchants and is enforced by military organizations.

Admiralty - is armed enforcement of the laws of commerce(the law merchant)

All birth certificates, licenses, registrations, insurances, bank accounts, permits, titles, deeds, etc. are commercial contracts created under the UCC - (Uniform Commercial Code) and this is where the confusion begins. Most people do not know that commercial law cannot regulate private dealings between civilians much less where to draw the line.

Where does one draw the line?
The Uniform Commercial Code
The Uniform Commercial Code was adopted by all states in 1964 making it the supreme law of the land. Take a look in the first part of every Federal and State code books and you will the find the Uniform Commercial Code consistent throughout.

UCC 1-103.6 defines how contract law must be in compliance with the rules of the common law providing there is made a knowing reservation of common law rights.

“The Code is complimentary to the Common Law, which remains in force, except where displaced by the code. A statute should be construed in harmony with the Common Law, unless there is a clear legislative intent to abrogate the Common Law.” (UCC 1-103.6)

What’s the remedy?
“The making of a valid Reservation of Rights preserves whatever rights the person then possesses, and prevents the loss of such rights by application of concepts of waiver or estoppel.” (UCC 1-207.7)
It is important to remember when we go into a court, that we are in a commercial, international jurisdiction. If we go into court and say. “I DEMAND MY CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHTS!”, the judge will most likely say, “You mention the Constitution again, and I’ll find you in contempt of court!” Then we don’t understand how he can do that. Hasn’t he sworn to uphold the Constitution? The rule here is: you cannot be charged under one jurisdiction and defend yourself under another jurisdiction. For example, if the French government came to you and asked where you filed your French income tax of a certain year, do you go to the French government and say “I demand my Constitutional Rights?” No. The proper answer is: “THE LAW DOES NOT APPLY TO ME. I AM NOT A FRENCHMAN.” You must make your reservation of rights under the jurisdiction in which you are charged, not under some other jurisdiction. So in a UCC court, you must claim your Reservation of Rights under UCC 1-207.

UCC 1-207 goes on to say...

“When a waivable right or claim is involved, the failure to make a reservation thereof, causes a loss of the right, and bars its assertion at a later date.” (UCC 1-207.9)

You have to make your claim known early. Further, it says:
“The Sufficiency of the Reservation: any expression indicating an intention to reserve rights is sufficient, such as “without prejudice”. (UCC 1-207.4)
Whenever you sign any legal paper that deals with Federal Reserve Notes, write under your signature: “Without Prejudice (UCC 1-207.4).” This reserves your rights. You can show, at UCC 1-207.4, that you have sufficiently reserved your rights.

It is very important to understand just what this means. For example, one man who used this in regard to a traffic ticket was asked by the judge just what he meant by writing “without prejudice UCC 1-207” on his statement to the court? He had not tried to understand the concepts involved. He only wanted to use it to get out of the ticket. He did not know what it meant. When the judge asked him what he meant by signing in that way, he told the judge he was not prejudice against anyone... The judge knew that the man had no idea what it meant, and he lost the case. You must know what it means!
Without Prejudice UCC 1-207
When you use “without prejudice UCC 1-207” in connection with your signature, you are saying, “I reserve my right not to be compelled to perform under any contract or commercial agreement that I did not enter knowingly, voluntarily and intentionally. I do not accept the liability of the compelled benefit of any unrevealed contract or commercial agreement.”
UCC 1-207. Performance or acceptance under Reservation of Rights.
A party who, with explicit reservation of rights, performs or promises performance or assents to performance in a manner demanded or offered by the other party does not thereby prejudice the rights reserved. Such words as “WITHOUT PREJUDICE”,” UNDER PROTEST” or the like are sufficient.

Like this:
“WITHOUT PREJUDICE” UCC 1-207”
First-Middle:Last

Your autograph is among your most valuable assets. It is not a good idea to autograph a contract without reserving your rights. If you must carry a driver’s license you should get a new one with a reservation of rights above your autograph on the license itself. As a matter of fact it is wisest to reserve your rights in any agreement, just in case there is some small print that suggests waiver of your God given freedom.


http://www.dailypaul.com/78775/does-anyone-sign-their-name-without-prejudice-ucc-1-308

Does anyone sign their name “Without Prejudice UCC 1-308”?

note: in 2004 U.C.C. 1-207 was changed to U.C.C. 1-308.
I have a stamp that I ordered that says “without prejudice U.C.C 1-308”.

I carry it everywhere, and anything I sign has the stamp. They say a stamp is better than just writing it, because it shows premeditation of your concern.

Enviros are opposed to corporate factory farms, then support regulations that only corporate factory farms can implement.

From the Declaration of Independence:

—”That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed,

— That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it,

— and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.”

welcome to FR. When you use this do you get any headaches from the people you are signing? Back when I was younger buck in the mid 1990’s I was schooled on this by a good friend and much older patriot. So I understood the UCC code and attempted to use it with unsuccessful results, like when I tried to sign the traffic ticket and the cop made me cross it out under threat of arrest. I didn’t wish to make a stand at that point and wonder where I’d be able to use it in the future.

I read the entire article and watched the short video.

I see this as a truly tragic reality. It is representative of the death of Liberty and our God given rights.

We now have the most ignorant electorate in the history of American elections. I believe we have the most corrupt government and media our country has ever seen.

Are We the People allowing this to happen right before our eyes? We were warned.

“Freedom is a fragile thing and is never more than one generation away from extinction. It is not ours by inheritance; it must be fought for and defended constantly by each generation, for it comes only once to a people. Those who have known freedom and then lost it have never known it again.” ~ Ronald Reagan, from his first inaugural speech as governor of California, January 5, 1967

—Are we that generation that allowed our Liberty and Freedom to die? Was it really stolen from us...... or did we simply give it all away?

Oh I understood it. I didn’t want to go to jail in front of my kids for doing 70 in a 55. I choose that it wasn’t worth it at the time. It was fun seeing him get all redfaced and pissed off though.

I’ve signed many documents with it but I haven’t been to court since I have learned about it.

There is more to it than what I posted.

Are you aware of the “Contract Law”???

I can understand not wanting to test it with your kids...

I got pulled over the other day for no seat belt and I was ready to give it a whirl, but the cop just gave me a warning...

I am making a few cards with the following on it:

ALL RIGHTS RESERVED UNIFORM COMMERCIAL CODE 1-308
IF YOU DO NOT UNDER-STAND, VERIFY WITH YOUR SUPERVISOR
IT IS GROSS NEGLIGENCE TO FAIL TO DISTINGUISH BETWEEN A STATUTE AND A LAW, THUS FRAUD

******************

Amen, Noumenon.

My backyard gardening is a prelude and training exercise for future larger-scale growing. Regulations like these must be fought tooth and nail; hopefully without loud noises and scattered chunks of airborne lead oxide.

Remember, Stalin starved millions with a fabricated famine in Ukraine in 1932-33. And the Ukraine was the "bread basket" of the Soviet Union.

Of course, they say things like that couldn't possibly happen here ...

From Wikipedia: “On 7 August 1932 a law came into force that stipulated that all food was state property and that mere possession of food was evidence of a crime. Among the most enthusiastic enforcers of the law were urban members of youth organizations, educated under the Soviet system, who fanned out into the countryside in order to prevent the “theft” of state property. They constructed and staffed watchtowers (over 700 in the Odessa region alone) to ensure that no peasants took food home from the fields. The youth brigades lived off the land, eating what they confiscated from the peasants. They often humiliated the starving peasants by forcing them to box each other for sport, or forcing them to crawl and bark like dogs.”

They are already making noises against preppers, naming them hoarders in the case of a food shortage emergency, which is what they are setting up by systematically limiting food sources. Stalin plan.
