Term Limits

We are frustrated by politics, and are proposing to limit terms automatically, by law.

Couple of problems to consider.

1) It takes 10,000 hours to get good at any skill. We would be firing people who have learned their business;

2) Inexperienced elected officials would shift power to their unaccountable, unknown, experienced staffs, mostly rent seeking, big government lawyers;

3) incumbents are nearly impossible to get rid of, so enact direct voting on issues, in all US jurisdictions, as California Initiatives do. This is direct democracy. These drive politicians crazy.

Victims Rights Movement as Lawyer Quackery

Paul Cassell and this phony victims' rights movement is appalling. It is a Trojan Horse for increasing lawyer employment. Victims will soon get the right to counsel to navigate the complicated legal system. And, that is the real reason for this movement.

The real victims' right is the right to not get victimized. The sole path to that right is public self help, and the killing of violent criminals. These violent criminals are protected by the lawyer profession. They generate massive government make work jobs. Victims now generate nothing and may rot.

The real victims' right is to sue the police, the judges, and the juries who allowed the criminals to victimize them, in deviation from professional standards of due care. These horrible, self dealing, rent seeking, worthless government workers will not stop the criminal or they would lose their jobs. Despite the false lawyer decisions, the police does have a duty to the individual, the one that pays his salary with heard earned tax money.

The victim has a right to compensation from civil forfeitures. Instead, the police keeps all of it for itself, stealing from innocent people, and failing to compensate crime victims.

The victim who does defend himself is always the one prosecuted, and destroyed by the legal system. The criminal never gets prosecuted by lawyers like Cassell. The message is, depend on the worthless government make work police.

Cassell ignores these problems, because he is a rent seeking lawyer, trying to fleece the tax payer.

Victim statements are attestations. They are not cross examined in violation of Fifth Amendment due process right to a fair hearing.

Victims should be forced to state how they profited from their victimization. For example, they are boohooing they lost their father. This father was a child abuser. His murder was a tremendous benefit to all those around him. That benefit should be credited to the defendant.

False statements by victims should no longer be immunized, but prosecuted instead, as perjury.

Improving the Supreme Court of the United States

The Supreme Court is a lawless abomination. It should be impeached, every single one of the traitor now sitting there.

Then pass a Judiciary Act.

1) Move the Court to Wichita, KS, roughly at the center of the nation. Get it out of the homosexual dominated, rent seeking, elitist culture of Washington DC. If you move to Iran, you will soon become very Iranian. You will imitate those around you, and fit in eventually. This explains the awful decisions of even the most conservative Justices.

2) Change the number of Justices to an even number. If there is a tied decision, the lower court decision stands, and as national policy. That lower court decision was likely obeying a prior Supreme Court decision. The even number will conserve stare decisis.

3) If the Court is to violate the constitution by its judicial review, make the number of Justices a legislative number, such as 500. All judicial reviews, including Marbury v Madison, violate Article I Section 1, granting law making power to a legislature.

4) Exclude anyone who has passed 1L from the Supreme Court. Exclude all people who ever attended an Ivy League School. They are all dirty traitor scum. Select the Justices from random people on local jury pools. I don't care if the Congress selects wine besotted bums puking in the gutter, who dropped out of special ed classes. There will be an upgrade in policy making, and more readability of decisions.

Intelligent Atheism, Not Stupid Atheism

As to atheism, I am an intelligent atheist, not a stupid atheist as most left wing atheists are. I do not bash religion in any way. I even respectfully accept the prayers of others for my soul. Religious people like me for my respect.
1) Religion is in all cultures, no exception. That means, brain based, with some evolutionary advantage.
2) I am with Weber, religious societies are richer societies. He studied Calvinism. I generalize his findings to Ancient Egypt. The Pharaoh had all the assets and powers. 100,000 men were idled by the yearly flooding of agricultural lands by the Nile for 6 months. That means drinking, fighting and trouble. Probably some Sephardic Jew persuaded him that if you pile rocks and correctly point the hole at the top, for your soul to be pointed at a star, you can achieve immortality. Bam, 100,000 guys have jobs the rest of the year, and the wealth is redistributed in the first government make work project. That project is still bringing in $5 billion to Egypt after 7000 years. What atheist project can claim that kind of value? Religious tourism. Weber is what you studied in 12th Grade Am History class, whether you ever heard his name. Wealth is a sign of God's grace, so work hard to get rich.

3) It does comfort people. It explains to the average person why they should do good, and not live the Roman orgy lifestyle, "You are being watched." It does a much better job of reducing crimes and abuses than the legal profession.
4) A fat kid is holding a magnifying glass between the sun and an anthill, and burning the ants. Realistically, an ant is more likely to grasp the mathematical formulas of Newtonian optics explaining the concentration of light and heat by the lens than we are to understanding the entity that produced a universe now 15 billion light years across, its laws of physics, and its growing at an accelerating pace, let alone the reasons for doing so. The intellectual distance is far shorter for the ant, even with CRISPR technology producing Einstein ants, and robot ants 1000 times smarter than they are. I prefer to be humble.
A babified explanation of a thin lens.

Tales of Conduct Disorder 2

The authorities who failed to execute this man at age 16 are fully responsible for the 7 subsequent murders committed by this man. Conduct disorder is a disability of morality and of empathy. Its sole remedy is the death penalty.

Here is the sad tale.

'...The gruesome revelations are a stark contrast to Kohlhepp’s professional image. On the surface, Kohlhepp was a polished Realtor who ran a successful South Carolina real estate firm upstate. In a company brochure, Kohlhepp portrayed himself as a tech-savvy professional committed to helping people buy and sell homes in Greenville and Spartanburg counties.
“At Todd Kohlhepp & Associates we feel that it’s important for our clients to know a little more about who’s working for them besides a name and number,” read the first part of his bio.
Beneath it was a picture of Kohlhepp dressed in a pinstripe suit, smiling broadly, next to a list of his business qualifications. He boasted that he was a licensed pilot and that his company had “One Focus … Results!”
But there was no mention of Kohlhepp’s criminal history and why he was a registered sex offender.
Details from his childhood — particularly his conviction for the 1986 rape of a teenage girl in Tempe, Ariz. — hint at a deeply troubled individual who harbored violent tendencies from an early age, according to court records obtained by the Arizona Republic.
Records showed that when Kohlhepp was 15 he went to a neighbor’s house, held a .22-caliber handgun to the 14-year-old girl’s head and demanded that she follow him, the Republic reported. Once back at his home, Kohlhepp duct-taped the girl’s mouth, restrained her hands and raped her — then told her he would kill her and her younger siblings if she called police, according to the paper.
The girl reported the rape to police, and Kohlhepp was arrested on kidnapping and sexual assault charges, court records showed. He took a plea bargain, pleading guilty to just the kidnapping charge, and was sentenced to 15 years in prison.

An extensive psychiatric evaluation of Kohlhepp, then 16, revealed a sometimes suicidal teenager who saw himself “as a loner, hostile toward other children and not wanting to be around people,” according to a report first obtained by Greenville Online.

Kohlhepp’s parents had divorced when he was a baby, the report said, and he was raised mostly by his mother and stepfather. After they separated in 1982, Kohlhepp began acting out, destroying his room and breaking mirrors so that his mother would send him to live with his biological father.
The report also detailed other alleged violent acts from Kohlhepp’s childhood. He destroyed his bedroom with a hammer, hit other classmates, was caught “Cloroxing” a goldfish, shot a dog with a BB gun and was dismissed from the Boy Scouts because he was too disruptive, the report said.
A teenage Kohlhepp described his father as “a lier [sic] and preoccupied with guns” who allegedly taught the boy how to “blow things up and make bombs,” according to the report. He had occasionally considered killing his father, whom he accused of physical abuse, but also “had this rage turned back at himself,” the report said.

In the 1987 report, Kohlhepp told the psychiatrist that when police were outside his home to arrest him after the rape of the 14-year-old girl, he put the gun to his head and pulled the trigger, but it jammed. “At this point, he laughed somewhat inappropriately,” the report said. “He stated ‘Someone doesn’t want me to die yet.’ ”

Kohlhepp seemed conflicted about the rape, alternately describing it as something he was ashamed of but also something that he had done to “get back” at his father. The report went on to say that Kohlhepp did not appear to suffer from hallucinations, delusions or other cognitive deficits; in fact, he seemed to be in the “normal intellectual range” and “tended to minimize his problem and expressed hope that he would go back to school and get a GED.”

The psychiatrist said there was “convincing evidence” that Kohlhepp had borderline personality disorder. “Throughout the interview, one got the feeling that if he were pushed to any limits, he was potentially explosive,” the psychiatrist wrote. The psychiatrist also warned that Kohlhepp’s “severe underlying emotional issues … could result in emotional deterioration in the future or continued aggressive behavior toward others in the future.”

Kohlhepp was released from prison Nov. 24, 2001, according to the Arizona Department of Corrections. Records also showed that he received postsecondary education and vocational training while in prison.
At some point, Kohlhepp moved to South Carolina and built a real estate business (his real estate license is listed as valid through June 2017, according to the state’s Labor, Licensing and Regulation Department).

When Kohlhepp applied for his South Carolina real estate license in 2006, he explained his sex offender status in a two-page letter filled with details that contradicted court documents regarding the 1986 charges, according to the Independent Mail:
Kohlhepp wrote, in his 2006 letter about the 1986 incident, that he had been in a heated argument with his girlfriend, they were both 15 at the time, they ended their relationship and afterward chased his dog and returned to his house.
Police showed up at the home, after having been called by the girl’s parents, who were concerned they could not reach her by phone, Kohlhepp wrote.
He explained in the letter that the kidnapping charge stemmed from a firearm he was carrying and because “I had told her not to move while we talked this out.”
Kohlhepp said he had been carrying a gun because he was concerned about crime in the Phoenix area and chalked it up to a youthful mistake.
Kohlhepp was granted a real estate license about three weeks after he applied, the Independent Mail reported. “Our community has been deeply disturbed by this,” Nick Kremydas, chief executive of South Carolina Realtors, told the paper. “The alleged acts of this person are not representative of us.”
State records showed that Todd Kohlhepp & Associates had two offices, one in Moore and another in Greenville, and that Kohlhepp supervised nearly a dozen agents. It is unclear whether any were aware of his private life. On Saturday, a call to the phone number listed for the company went to an answering machine, where Kohlhepp’s voice promised, with a slight Southern drawl, to return calls as soon as possible.
Listings for all of the properties and agent bios on his company’s Web page redirected to server error messages. By Saturday afternoon, an agent profile page for Kohlhepp on the real estate site Zillow appeared to have been removed, and a slew of negative reviews had been posted to his company’s Facebook page.
Brown reportedly worked for Kohlhepp cleaning houses and had arrived at his Woodruff property with her boyfriend to help clean it up when Kohlhepp pulled a gun on them, according to CBS News.
Brown and Carver were reported missing after the Anderson, S.C., couple didn’t show up to dinner with a friend on Aug. 31. No one heard from them after that. In mid-October, The Washington Post reported that the couple’s family members were disturbed by messages that began appearing on Carver’s Facebook account.
The family suspected that his account had been taken over by someone sinister. As The Post reported:
Suddenly, the page exploded with content, as if it had been hacked. It would appear to be flooded with spam, but a closer inspection revealed many of the posts to be related to the couple.
News stories about the missing couple appeared in rapid-fire succession, along with other stories about missing people. Strange, violent images and memes began being posted on the Facebook page.
“If I weren’t crazy, I’d be insane,” read one. Another read, “Sometimes late at night I dig a hole in the back yard to keep the nosy neighbor’s guessing.”
. . . On Oct. 1, one user commented on the marriage announcement, “Where the hell is Kala Brown???” to which Charlie’s Facebook account responded, “kala is with her husband charlie.”
On another post, a user asked where Kala was, to which Charlie’s account responded “who the f––– are you to question me about my girlfriend?”
Carver’s Facebook account has since been deleted.
Kohlhepp’s next court appearance is scheduled for Jan. 19, according to court records.
