    Not to many people know that the legal definition of traffic(highway TRAFFIC act) states that it derives from maritime law(law of contracts!). Email me for alot more,

        Pardon this indiscretion, I thought it funny.

        “The doctor will see you soon, if you would only wait.”

        “You still here? The doctor gone home.”

        “I’m waiting for nothing”

        Waiting for nothing is indeed futile.

    Governments and states are separate things. For all practical purposes and intents YOU are the state. Governments come and go. They may or not observe the gold standard. The problem is one of identity … you don’t know who you are. Maybe an excerpt from Hobbes English Works might assist understanding:

    For form, that when a man is grown from an infant to an old man, though his matter be changed, yet he is still the same numerical man; for that identity , which cannot be attributed to the matter, ought probably to be ascribed to the form. For the aggregate of accidents, no instance can be made; but because, when any new accident is generated, a new name is commonly imposed on the thing, therefore he, that assigned this cause of individuality, thought the thing itself also was become another thing. According to the first opinion, he that sins, and he that is punished, should not be the same man, by reason of the perpetual flux and change of a man’s body; nor should the city, which makes laws in one age and abrogates them in another, be the same city; which were to confound all civil rights. According to the second opinion, two bodies existing both at once , would be the same numerical body. For if, for example, that ship of Theseus, concerning the difference whereof made by continual reparation in taking out the old planks and putting in new, the sophisters of athens were wont to dispute, were, after all the planks were changed, the same numerical hip it was at the beginning; and if some man had kept the old planks as they were taken out, and by putting them afterwards together in the same order, had again made a ship of them, this, without doubt, had also been the same numerical ship with that which was at the beginning, which is absurd. But , according to the third opinion, nothing would be the same it was; so that a man standing would not be the same he was sitting; nor the water, which is in the vessel, the same with that which is poured out of it. Wherefore the beginning of individuation is not always to be taken either from matter alone, or from form alone.

      Why doesn’t man have sovereign immunity as it seems quite appropriate? Inconsistancy? Is this norma?l

        In a natural state each man (state?) has equal rights and the system devolves to continual war. In order to obtain peace each man (state?) gives up certain of his rights to join a civil society (government). This is Hobbes viewpoint. Peace is the ultimate goal and the price is relinquishment of some rights. I have seen one text that says that ALL rights are relinquished to make a government domestic. That government then creates your laws and determines who succeeds and who gets sent to prison. Punishment and reward. Your natural rights are always available but not while you participate and assign them to any government. The action of becoming stateless actually says you have all of the rights a natural man. Would that include sovereignty? Could be this is a term assigned to the survivor of all battles.

    More Hobbes observations:

    If the name be given for some accident, then the identity of the thing will depend upon the matter; for by the taking away and supplying of matter, the accidents that were, are destroyed, and other new ones are generated, which cannot be the same numerically; so that a ship, which signifies matter so figured, will be the same as long as the matter remains the same; but if not part of the matter be the same, then it is numerically another ship; and if part of the matter remain and part be changed, the the ship will be partly the same, and partly not the same.

    Thinkbabout what I’m gonna say and look into the things you don’t understand and then draw your own conclusions.

    Miranda Rights are an elaborate schemet trap you.

    You have the right to remain silent(silence is admission though, see Doctirne of Acquiescence) and then they words “anything you say or DO will be held against you in a court of law” well you’re remaining silent so you have taken an action and done something, now because you haven’t opened your big mouth they can use your silence against you too!.. Make sense?.. It’s a scam!..

    Rights are a scheme to entrap you. Can you explain them in such a way that they are not self refererential? Try the same with obligations or duties.

    Are icons also idols?

    Why would I ever wish to answer that question?

    Is the answer to any of these questions going to help me?

    They claim jurisdiction over all that is public, yet every one of their agreements is private with respect to the individual. I’m begining to believe the public doesn’t exist.

      Public roads are private for those with licences or registrations, private roads simply don’t exist unless we are speaking of private toll roads again. Is it legal to travel a toll road with no registration? Until you return to a public road again. I’m only black on weekends.

        The reason these are all private, is your signature is the aquience. Can the public agree or disagree with the individual?

        answer is moot
