BrotherJohnF’s latest Silver Update:
Debtor’s Prison

  1. Brother JohnF……did you get a good talking to? Just a-joshin’ ya. Seriously though, they cannot incarcerate those who do not pay a debt, unless that consequence is understood up front, before the debt is incurred. If that were to ever happen, we couldn’t build enough FEMA camps…..er, pardon….prisons to hold all those who have defaulted on their non-collateralized debts. When lender’s prison becomes acceptable, so then will debtor’s prison find a resurgence. What’s good for the goose……………

  2. I know someone here in MN that was taken to court over a debt. He went and proved to the judge he couldn’t pay (on unemployment). Judge tossed out the case. Collection agency went to the county next door and refiled the case, that judge tossed him in jail even though he was barely making the house payment. The legal system in this country is a mess and not to be trusted because there is no consistency.

    • MaryB, the capriciousness you’re witnessing is ‘Administrative Process’. If an accused can be adequately adjudged under Common Law Due Process, it’s improper for lawyers and judges to proceed on the matter … until the accused waives Common Law right. What needs to happen is a wave of suits against these shysters (the lawyers AND judges, who carry out this plunder through hidden technical traverse) on grounds of Barritry. THEN re-establishment of original jurisdiction Community Courts, conducted under Common Law jurisprudence where juries take cognizance of, not only the facts, but the lawfulness of statutes arrayed against an accused, as well.

  3. Debtor’s prison is an idiot’s logic. A person owes money and cannot pay so the solution is to take him/her out of the work place and put them in a prison where they have to be fed, clothed and housed. If I am in debt and out of work, prison becomes a very appealing place in contrast to starving to death.

    I wouldn’t worry so much about debtor’s prison but be more worried about debtor’s gulags or work camps.

    BTW, once the first few hundred or few thousand debtors are put in incarceration, it will get VERY ugly since probably 99% of the country is in debt of some kind and, if it is true that most people are two paychecks from the street, the 99% will be worried they are next. 

  4. As I’d said elsewhere, the very fact that Bills of Credit circulate despite the explicit Constitutional prohibition against government’s acceptance of them, raises the question of exactly … where … and under what provision … might that be Lawful, nevertheless. There is only one such place; Art. IV, Sec, 3, cl. 2 whereby, under exclusive Congressional jurisdiction (‘Property’, synonymously), no Constitutional limits apply. So, for the thing desired to be had by banknote alone, At Law, as In Equity, it must be held under Congressional jurisdiction.

    That being the nexus of imposition, the task necessary for extrication is to remove one’s self, lands, chattels and affairs back under the original, ordinary jurisdiction of one’s State.

  5. There are 1,700,000 people incarcerated in this country, a population that is several times larger that the next largest prison population.  The people in prison are, for the most part, incarcerated for crimes are either victimless or not a crime in other countries.  The private prison correctional corporations use these people to work, sometimes for pennies an hour, making products used in this country.  This incredibly uncompetitive form of labor undercut the US businesses who have to pay full boat in wages.  Contractors who buy products such as clothing and uniforms from the private corporations are required by law to accept some of the products from the prison mills as part of the government sponsored emphasis to buy from small businesses.  The businesses who try to complete with the correctional corporations are put out of business in some cases due to the uncompetitive nature of this system. 
    In other words, the prison slaves that are forced to work for 25 cents an hour are even lower priced than the sweat shop prison populations that manufacture the “Made in China’ products we find so popular at Wal Mart.
    If you extrapolate this prison labor source, and I will most certainly do that, then the DEBTOR PRISON system that is being formed for the purpose of incarcerating the debt slaves is most certainly going to become a part of our national production line.  If a person can be sent to prison for selling or smoking something as innocuous as marijuana and thus find themselves in a sweat shop prison labor force making police and military uniforms, then a person who owes $100,000 on their home, student loan, car or credit card could easily be forced into the penal system to work off their debt plus imputed interest.
      Chain gangs have been a time honored way of getting roads built and fields cleared, often with corrupt contractors and prison officials. That is a fact and well documented–both the chain gang forced labor and the corruption that goes along with it.
    I am of the opinion that the USA, like Germany before and during WWII using prisoners of war, captured foreigners and their own peopple to feed the war machine, we can and will become as likely to fall into this system as any other civilized country.  Slavery is the second oldest profession IMO. Slave ownership is the first. Politicians find themselves worked into that as well

  6. Finally! A video that explains what is a Ponzi scheme. I was wondering about this since November 2011 and I did some research about it but I didn’t understood the meaning of it. So the definition of it is: “Paying early investors with latest investor’s money and not investing the money”.
    I was also thinking that one day, the government is going to announce that everyone’s properties are going to get confiscated and the excuse will be that it’s to repay the national debt. It looks like that I’m not the only one with that thinking.
