Gold still talks the loudest

7/14/93 (C) Gold knows no borders. Ask the Vietnamese boat people, the White Russians of the pre-
revolutionary Soviet Union or the Jews who fled Nazi Germany. They bought their way across international
borders with gold.

Politicians, under the authority of the U.S. Constitution and the privately owned Federal Reserve Bank, by
delegation of Congress, can debauch the currency by running the printing presses and deviously devaluing
the dollar but they cannot debauch gold and remain in power without an iron fist.

A $20 (1 ounce) gold coin in 1933, the year Hitler democratically assumed power, would buy a first-class,
tailor-made suit of clothes. In 1993, at almost $500/oz, the same gold coin will buy a similar suit; whereas a
paper $20 bill issued by President Roosevelt after he ordered the confiscation of gold and made
possession and exportation of gold illegal in 1933 has, 60 years later, lost about 92 percent of its
purchasing power through debasement and inflation.

Which is the honest money: the gold coin, U.S. currency or no money at all backed by the laws of karma?

Mexico knows

6/24/93 -- Our neighbors south of the international border know the U.S. corporations didn’t desert the
American workers because they like Mexico or Mexicans thus, the corporations are cursed for desertion
and exploitation. The economies of both nations will level ... U.S. stole Mexican land.

No need for money

6/15/93 (C) -- This world is not fit for children to suffer. The only logical, humane, civilized, godly solution is
to abolish hollow ego-centric money – barter is unnecessary too, law (God will enforce god’s unwritten
karmic laws) and the state boundaries.

What about the rest of us?

5/13/93 (C) -- Regarding the recent editorial in support of an $850,000 wall to muffle traffic noise in an
affluent residential area along North Skyline Drive: If they get a wall, then why don’t I get one along North
Euclid between Broadway and Grant; or a curfew on cars; or walls and a roof for the homeless; or how
about a high-speed trolley down the noisy, busy street where I live to Speedway and all the way east to the
mountains, where I like to go hiking on Sunday? Ill volunteer to help lay the track.

Check out Clinton’s intention

11/28/92 (C) -- Will President-elect Bill Clinton, contrary to his oath of office, cause America to lose its
sovereignty (to the United Nations) and Bill of Rights? Rhodes scholar Clinton said at the Democratic
Convention that he heard John Kennedy’s summons to citizenship clarified by a professor he had at
Georgetown University named Carrol Quigley.

Rhodes’ intention, mentioned in his first wills, was to form a secret society bent on the preservation and
expansion of the British Empire including ‘the ultimate recovery of the United States of America.’

Quigley wrote in ‘The Anglo-American Establishment’ that he agrees with the Rhodes group’s goals but not
their methods of complete control and monopoly of the media, politics, administration and the ‘writing and
teaching [mythmaking] of the history of their own period.’ If Clinton’s intentions are the same as Quigley and
Rhodes’s, then America will fast go to hell, thus paving the way for a fascist like Perot or an authoritarian
Libertarian.

Another use for CAP water

8/29/92 (C) -- Uh, oh. they’re back. Call out the Army to prevent anyone from going to Mount Lemmon or
Manning Camp. The monsoon rains caused the ‘deadly, poisonous’ Amanita muscaria to pop up.

Actually, the Amanita is the sacred mushroom, god’s flesh. And whomever made up the story that it is
dangerous and poisonous must have wanted to harvest it all, or wants us to dull our minds with beer
instead. I prefer LSD.

Happy hiking. But don’t let the tyrannical thought police catch you. let’s decriminalize pot and LSD and
Psilocybin mexicana. The pot can be grown with CAP water instead of cotton or other federally subsidized
crops.

Fluoride doesn’t belong in water

6/15/92 (C) -- Adding fluoride to Tucson’s water won’t benefit children from low-income families and will
cause mottled, ugly teeth in children whose parents can’t afford to send them to a dentist. Dentists will get
rich from fluoride.

Graphs in the "Citizen’s Water Advisory Board" report which, without unanimous consent, recommended
adding "optimal levels" of fluoride to our dirty allotment of CAP water, show that children going to school in
low-income sections of Tucson are already receiving "optimal levels" of fluoride from the aquifer, yet they
have significantly more tooth decay than rich kids ingesting much less fluoride.

Fluoride, a corrosive rodenticide, is more toxic than lithium, which is used to sedate maniacs and, like
arsenic and lead, doesn’t belong in our drinking water.

No reason for enthusiasm

4/7/92 (C) -- What do I get enthusiastic about? A messianic, charismatic, beautiful person/couple telling the
truth – slaying dragons. Hillary and Bill Clinton look pretty but spew hot air. None of the current messiahs
have a solution for all of the world’s social, economic, spiritual, ecological ills. They are cynical dogs of
human nature or lovers of power, prestige and money. Therefore, they ignore, chastise or ridicule the
visionaries who advocate eliminating money, law and international boundary lines. (Carol Dearborn)

Lawmakers accessories in rip-off

2/27/92 (C) -- If you have a "motor vehicle liability policy" on more than one of the cars you own, then your
insurance company is probably ripping you off.

In 1985 the Arizona Supreme Court declared: "If you own more than one vehicle but only one vehicle is
named in the policy, then your other cars are also insured, or, if you have a liability policy for a car, then your
motorcycle is also insured even though it is not named in the policy." (
Calvert vs. Farmers Ins. Co. of
Arizona,
144 Ariz. 291, paraphrased.)

However, because of a few words, which became law this year, insurance companies won’t issue you the
necessary proof of motor vehicle insurance for all the vehicles you own, unless you pay a premium for each
of your other vehicles, and you can’t register your car without showing the ‘proof’.

Only a pocketful of our state legislators knew what they were doing when these few words were passed.
Those who voted for it (it was unanimous) were ignorant of the significance or were paid off by the
insurance companies.

Critiquing "JFK" critique

1/30/92 -- After pooh-poohing Oliver stone’s brilliant docudrama "JFK," John Jennings concludes his naive
review with a plea for Stone to "get back to providing (the masses) with interesting, well-acted and
entertaining films." Beer, pretzels, football games and circuses.

Stone’s film is about a coup d’etat by the CIA, with the help of gangsters, anti-Castro Cubans, the military
and police, in Dallas on November 22, 1963.

Where was George Bush that day and why, with no apparent background in intelligence, was he appointed
to direct the CIA in 1975? Coincidentally, President Nixon was in Dallas on Nov. 21, "on a quick business
trip." Nixon was Eisenhower’s vice president and lost the 1960 presidential race to Kennedy.

Sen. Edward Kennedy repeats the absurdity that he finds no reason to doubt the Warren Commission
Report. The Commission had future President Ford and former CIA director Alan Dulles as members. John
Kennedy fired Dulles and threatened to "splinter the CIA into a thousand pieces. In 1975, future President
Reagan served on Vice President Rockefeller’s whitewash Commission into the illegal domestic affairs of
the CIA including covering up the truth about CIA involvement in the assassination of JFK.

Unless Kennedy rallies the people for a palace coup, there is nothing he can do to save this nation. He has
no solutions.

Hate crimes

5/9/91 (C) -- Arizona Sen. David Bartlett’s "Hate Crimes" Bill is dangerous because it uses the vague
terms "conduct," "threaten," and "intimidate."

Germany, France and Canada jailed people for the "hate crime" of telling the truth about the Holocaust.
David Irving, the British historian, wrote, "No one likes to be duped, still less when lots of money is involved.
West Germany paid more than $38 billion to Israel for reparations mostly on account of the gas chambers
myth."

Son’s interests

2/5/91 -- The bottom line of this war [in Kuwait] is money, profit for King George’s pals in the oil and military
industries. According to a Nov. 12 article in "The Nation," Bush’s son, George Jr., is a director, large
stockholder and consultant to a firm with exclusive oil drilling rights for nearly all of Bahrain’s offshore oil and
gas. Bahrain is a tiny island nation off the eastern coast of Saudi Arabia.

According to the American Hydrogen Association, Arizona, using five percent of its land area, the sun and
water, could manufacture enough hydrogen fuel to supply the entire transportation system of the U.S. We
could build a solar-hydrogen electric generator for less than the cost of an atomic reactor.

Limited freedom

1/23/90 (C) -- What good is democracy when we can’t vote away our slavery to bankers, insurance
companies and real estate prices? We’re harassed by taxes, police, lawyers and corrupt judges. We’re
free to go wherever we want, but no one wants us unless we bring money. We’re free to speak, but if too
many people listen, you end up killed or in jail on trumped-up charges.

Jesus Christ showed us the way to truly live life. Human nature is basically good but corrupted in an ungodly
environment with the stumbling blocks of money, burdensome laws and false doctrines.

Unfit representative

2/12/90 (C) -- Sen. Dennis DeConcini sincerely acts like he’s completely innocent. In a Dec. 9 article,
DeConcini said this about a $48,000 campaign contribution he received from Charles Keating: "Such a
small amount isn’t going win or lose an election." One or two votes won’t win or lose an election either, right?

DeConcini’s campaign manager and his chief fundraiser – both close friends of his – received $50 million
in unsecured loans from Keating. DeConcini claims this was just a coincidence he didn’t know about. Sure,
like DeConcini just happened to buy some desert property near Marana smack dab in the middle of the
proposed, and not yet publicly disclosed, alignment for the Central Arizona Project canal, thus making a
million dollars profit at U.S. taxpayers’ expense.

DeConcini isn’t fit to represent the people of Arizona.

He should be tarred, feathered and run out of town on a rail for delivering CAP water to us. On March 23,
1990, DeConcini’s aide, Barry A. Dill wrote a letter calling me names and not refuting the above charges.
See my response to Dill, which the Citizen refused to publish, elsewhere, herein.

Talmudic law

8/2/90 -- Why doesn’t our government follow the U.S. Constitution and trust "we the people," to determine
what is equitable and to judge the law and facts?

The Seventh Amendment to the Constitution guarantees U.S. citizens a trial by jury under the common law.
The common law allows the jury to judge the facts and law. At common law, if the jury decides the law is
unjust or that one person isn’t being equitable to another, the jury may acquit, absolve or decide in your
favor.

Pima County courts operate under what I call Talmudic law. If you ever read any of the voluminous, tedious
Talmud, you’d understand why. We have courts that have statutory law and equity jurisdictions, where case
law, determined by Talmudic judges, disallows a jury to try anything but the facts. The Talmudic law killed
Jesus.

Case law is almost always ambiguous, burdensome and vague, which essentially leaves it up to the judge
to decide which cases to use to justify the verdict.

Supreme law

12/29/90 -- United Nations’ treaties aren’t the supreme law of the land (Article 6 of the Constitution of the
United States of America) unless "two-thirds of the Senators present concur." (Art. 2, Sec. 2.)

Therefore, it’s frightening that William Buckley, in his column titled, "If the U.N. approves of war, why bother
to ask Congress?" infers that "U.N. procedures are the supreme law of the land."

The U.S. has no treaty to protect Kuwait and the Senate didn’t delegate its authority to the U.N. by ratifying
the U.N. Charter. If it did, then the delegate to the U.N. has the power to declare war without the consent of
Congress, contrary to the U.S. Constitution. (Art. 1, Sec. 8).

Representing the rich

12/5/89 -- Sen. Dennis DeConcini did know then what he does know now: The federal regulators knew that
Keating’s savings & loan was operating unlawfully. DeConcini shouldn’t have interfered with the regulator’s
investigation – obstructing justice. DeConcini [supposedly] represents the people, not just the people with
money. And now the people must pay billions of dollars for DeConcini’s interference. DeConcini betrayed
the American people.

Kill insurance ‘tax’

11/19/89 (S) -- The solution to Arizona’s unworkable, unaffordable, mandatory motor vehicle law (tax) is:
Abolish it; wear seat belts; drive sturdy, easily repaired cars that don’t self destruct in five-mile-per-hour
accidents; require inflatable air bags in new cars sold in Arizona; take away the licenses of reckless
drivers; and the hospitals/physicians that treat accident victims would be reimbursed from a fund derived
from an excise tax on gasoline.

Did CIA kill JFK?

10/21/89 (C) -- The CIA killed President John F. Kennedy. That’s what Jim Garrison, the former New
Orleans Parish district attorney and current Louisiana State Appeals Court judge wrote in his recently
published book, On the Trail of the Assassins.

Attorney Mark Lane, who also wrote books on the assassination, was quoted in the Feb. 6, 1985 Miami
Herald saying, "There’s no doubt in my mind that the CIA was involved (in President Kennedy’s
assassination)."

And comedian, devout Muslim and dietitian Dick Gregory pointed out the resemblance’s of former CIA
agent E. Howard Hunt and his Watergate buddy, Frank Sturgis, to two tramps in a news photo, who were
arrested as suspects in the assassination near the scene and time of the crime.

If Hunt and Sturgis did kill JFK, then why doesn’t President George Bush, the former director of the CIA,
appear on TV and admit there was a coup d’etat on Dallas on Nov. 22, 1963? Because President Johnson
told Earl Warren, the Chief Justice of the U.S. Supreme Court, "If after a through probe of the facts, some
conclusion wasn’t reached as to who was responsible for the assassination ... (there would be) social
breakdown."

Revisionist views

11/19/89 (C) --  C. Donald Hatfield, editor and publisher of the Tucson Citizen, wrote in a Sept. 2 column,
"There are idiots out there who say (the extermination of some six million Jews) never happened. The death
camps ... never existed."

David Irving, the world-renowned World War II historian, recently confessed that he was wrong about the
extermination story and now accepts the revisionist position on the Holocaust, which is: The Nazi
concentration camps existed Ð the U.S. had them too for American citizens of Japanese descent; many
people in Nazi camps died of typhus and malnutrition, especially in the final chaotic months before
Germany surrendered and; millions of people weren’t killed in gas chambers with hydrogen cyanide louse
disinfectant or carbon monoxide from a diesel engine, as alleged by the holohoaxers.

During the typhus epidemics at Auschwitz, up to 200 people died per day, hence the crematoria and the
reason why women had their heads shaved upon entering a camp. There is no forensic evidence that six
million Jews were killed. No autopsies or examination of the alleged murder weapons was introduced as
evidence in any of the military tribunals at Nuremberg or elsewhere.

Gary E. Dungan, Tucson Director of the Humane Society, responded to my letter on 10/5/89 but didn’t
produce any refutation only slander.

Useless pooches

8/5/89 (C) -- Unless you are blind or insecure, dogs are good for nothing. If you give your love to a
domesticated animal, then you divide your devotion between your spouse and children. If you’re in love with
a dog, then how can you truly love a person? If you weren’t blind you could see that dogs don’t love you they
only want you to love them.

Dogs bark, yap or whine, especially when you’re not home. They pollute your yard, public streets and
consume millions of tons of grain. They will forever manifest lust, greed, sloth, anger and possessiveness.
They are bad examples for children. Neutered dogs aren’t lustful carousers and don’t play stupid macho-
dog, fighting, posturing, sniffing, urinating games when meeting another dog.

When I see someone loving their dog, I realize they don’t know any better. There’s no hope for dogs.

On 8/31/89 eight (8) angry letters were published in response however; the editor omitted the above-
italicized sentences from my letter, which would have neutralized their wrath. The classical Greek word for
blindness derives from another meaning "pride, conceit." These Greeks believed that pride, ignorance,
covetousness and love caused "blindness." In those days a "blind" person was someone who today
wears glasses.

Modern feudalism

6/25/89 (C) -- If we have a right to abort fetuses, then we have a right to smoke pot, take LSD or kill
someone.

Karl Marx and Muammar Kaddafi wrote that with material abundance, there’s no need of money and, laws
and state boundaries will wither away. 98 percent of today’s world leaders perpetuate feudalism through 30-
year mortgages, insurance, landlords, wage slavery, taxation, irrational mythological fears and false
doctrines of human nature.

The biblical prophet Ezekiel called money a stumbling block and Isaiah prophesied of a kingdom of
godliness where people wouldn’t use money to buy food.

Legalize pot, LSD

4/19/89 (C) -- If marijuana and LSD were legal, the price would be almost nothing and poor children in
Mexico City wouldn’t have to sniff glue and harmful vapors to escape their boredom or the hopelessness of
their hell.

It’s also true that wherever it’s legal to possess pot and LSD, the novelty wears off, diminishing demand. It’s
often said we need more money to pay the police and jailers to stop the drugs. The police and armed
forces are dealing in drugs, big time.

Leary was in town the previous day.

Needless death

3/28/89 (C) -- Neil M. Thormodsgard, who recently was murdered in Tucson, was one of the nicest guys I
ever met. He would house the homeless and stray dogs in his "fortress" and finally one of those he helped
turned on him.

Neil used to work on grain ships in the Great Lakes but something happened and he was misdiagnosed by
psychiatrists who gave him electro-shock therapy.

Thus, he received more than $600 a month in Social Security disability but never had any money because
he fed numerous dogs and had high water bills from watering the bamboo that surrounded his oasis that
had no electricity.

I can’t blame the police, the psychiatrists or myself for Neil’s needless death. The moral of the story is: Don’t
take your frustrations and anxieties about money and life out on anything but a piece of paper, or, if you can’
t vote, write or speak, God hears your prayers.

Money system to blame

2/25/89 (C) -- Those people who call homeless people "bums" and want them to work at bogus jobs for
slave wages attack a symptom (homelessness), not the cause (the money system).

Why do houses cost so much? Because too many paper money pushers do not contribute anything
constructive or beneficial.

The homeless situation, like almost every other world or personal problem, is a symptom of the evils of the
money system If we eliminated money, laws and international boundaries, then there would be more people
working, not as hard, at necessary jobs.

Eliminate money

1/3/89 (C) -- Want less traffic, pollution and noise? Want better-made cars that don’t self-destruct in 5-mph
accidents? Then repeal, or don’t enforce, traffic and mandatory insurance laws. Half of Tucson is made up
of streets and places to park cars. Probably one sixth of our economy is devoted to the automobile.

Legalize marijuana and murder for people over the age of 21 and pay for it with karma and love. The
frustrations and anxieties of a money economy cause some people to murder.

And eliminate money. Reasonable, loving people won’t use any medium of exchange. There are plenty of
corn and soybeans to feed everybody but, today, pigs, cows and dogs eat most of it. If human nature is
what the cynics and pessimists say it is, then there is no hope for the future.

Reasons for smoking pot

11/5/88 (C) -- Some reasons for smoking marijuana: There’s not much hope for the future. (Apocalypse is
on the horizon, can’t you see the signs of the times? The whole world – except for New Zealand – is going
to hell or already is hell.) It’s relaxing, like a good bottle of wine. There are vintage crops and varieties of
marijuana and you can lovingly watch it grow in your backyard.

Studies have shown that smoking marijuana is healthier than drinking alcohol and, one or two joints or
pipes-full of pot per day is enough. Therapists have used marijuana to cure alcoholics.

There are also many economic and social reasons for legalizing or decriminalizing marijuana: It is a felony
to possess or smoke it in Arizona, which means that if convicted you can’t vote or hold public office.

For most people, marijuana is a stimulant like caffeine or a nutmeg in your breakfast cereal, and you can
release energy and unusual thoughts. Ideally, we should not "have to" smoke pot, go to church, take Valium
or drink alcohol, but this is a bogus world and life and there’s not much hope of a Messiah coming or of
people becoming messiahs or Buddhas themselves.

Love is a heart-breaking, unnecessary, energy and time consuming endeavor or experience unless you
desire a companion (folie a duex), a mother/father figure (insecurity), children (this world’s not fit for children
to suffer), or someone to help around the house and pay the bills or take out your frustrations and anxieties
on.

Informed votes

11/24/88 (S) -- That Tom Beal, a fellow (but yellow) journalist and probable university graduate, would call
me "a major-league goofball" (Sept. 18) because of what he read or looked at in my campaign brochure,
frightens and sickens me.

There’s no doubt in my mind that the CIA/Mafia was involved in the assassination of President Kennedy.
Other heads of state in other countries were plotted against or killed by the CIA or CIA-backed thugs. Cited
in my brochure are four reputable books documenting the CIA/Mafia or FBI involvement in the
assassinations of John Fitzgerald Kennedy, his brother Robert and the Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr.

We’ve heard plenty about the alleged "6 million" Jewish victims of diesel exhaust and louse disinfectant in
alleged gas chambers at Hitler’s "death" camps. I don’t deny these camps existed. I deny some of the
poorly documented atrocities there. At the war crimes trials there were no autopsies or forensic evidence of
the allegedly gassed corpses or gas chambers (the alleged murder weapon) introduced as evidence.

I like to imagine that I received as many votes as I did (in the primary election) because intelligent/informed
people at the university read the tracts and stories on the Holocaust and coups d’etat I gave them, or heard
me try to reason with the bigoted "holohoaxers" and irrational "Christian" dogmatists on the University of
Arizona mall. And I would have received more votes if I did a mass mailing as the two male opponents of
mine did.

Israel or heaven on Earth won’t be established with lies, tanks and battleships or confine itself within barbed
wire.

After this letter and election, the Star ignored nearly all of Friedemann's letters.

Mecham an inspiration

11/24/88 (C) -- Evan Mecham is an inspiration. He kept slugging away at the sum, filth, bigots, devils,
dogmatists and liars and, finally, after several unsuccessful tries, the decent, honest and informed people of
Arizona elected him to govern us.

I only wish he was for legalizing or decriminalizing marijuana (it is a felony to possess or use it in Arizona,
which means you lose your right to vote or hold a public office). I also wish he had not offended some
immature, naive and innocent people, that he had spoken up about the CIA-Mafia assassinations of JFK,
RFK and Dr. Martin Luther King, and that he had told how the Trilateral Commission and Jewish political
action committees influence foreign policy. I wish he had exposed the lies about the Holocaust and other
official lies the government puts forth to protect the plutocracy.

Candidate responds

11/10/88 (C) -- Are all Holocaust survivors liars or just some of them? If you read Mary Bustamante’s article
in the Citizen, you would think I believe they all are liars.

My campaign brochure cites some obvious lies by some Holocaust survivors in the 9-1/2-hour propaganda
film "Shoah." For example, the alleged secret Reich letter quoted in the film said an extermination van’s
usual load was nine people per square yard. And a survivor said he was ordered to cut naked women’s hair
in a 12-by-12-foot gas chamber. Inside this tiny chamber, the alleged witness said, there were 16 barbers,
60 to 70 naked women on benches and some SS men.

Propaganda about soap and glue factories utilizing human corpses was circulated during both world wars
and has been proved false.

Many people did die in Hitler’s concentration camps of louse-born typhus and malnutrition, especially near
the end of the war; hence the crematoria for disposing of the dead. Those ovens did not spew smoke or
flames as alleged eyewitnesses’ claim.

The U.S. internment of Japanese-Americans during the same war was inhumane too.

This same day a letter was published by John R. Harris slandering me about the letter below.

Rewriting history

6/19/88 (C) -- Holocaust historians and dogmatists are admitting defeat, making concessions and waking
up. The New York Times recently reported that "Deborah Lipstadt, a scholar of the Holocaust, ... worries
that some revisionist notions (about the Holocaust) could enter into mainstream history."

Which of the following revisionist "notions" will enter into mainstream history?

Hitler’s gas chambers never existed.

The genocide of the Jews never took place.

Or, the Holo-hoax, which is largely of Zionist origin, has made an enormous political and financial fraud
possible, whose principal beneficiary is the state of Israel.

Anna Mann responded to this letter with indignant slander 8/3/88.

Brainwashing possible

6/28/88 (C) -- "The Manchurian Candidate," a film the Citizen reviewed (May 31), is not as much about the
assassination of President John F. Kennedy as it is about the murder of his brother Sen. Robert F.
Kennedy.

In a book published in 1978 by a reputable publishing company, two authors conclude, with the backing of
the former Los Angeles County Coroner, Dr. Thomas Noguchi, that there was a second gunman involved in
the Senator’s death.

The authors also quote a well known specialist in hypnosis and a former prison psychiatrist of Sirhan Sirhan’
s, the Senators alleged assassin, as confirming that Sirhan, like the Manchurian Candidate, could have
easily been hypnoprogrammed and brainwashed.

See
The Assassination of Robert F. Kennedy, William Turner and John Christian, Random House, 1978

Learning to get along

5/26/88 (C) -- What can you or your grandchildren hope to accomplish, invent or realistically dream about?
Becoming president? Discovering a new continent? Inventing something universally useful, a new drug, a
better mousetrap, a fad? Creating more music, art, religion or another big, boring book?

The only really important thing left for us to do now is to learn how to live with each other, to share and
create for the benefit of all.

Time to pursue

3/31/88 (S) (C published 3/22/88 headlined "Work for the basics") Do we need all these paper
(money) pushing parasites who contribute nothing beneficial to society?

With modern methods we require only a few people to grow, harvest and process basic foods. The same
with clothing and shelter: Very few people are needed to manufacture essentials. And if public
transportation was better and not for the good of General Motors – we wouldn’t need so many cars.

If a person devotes say, four years of his life to manufacturing, construction or agriculture, he technically
fulfilled his material obligations for a lifetime and he should be free to pursue other things without being
made to feel guilty in a capitalist/communist community for not working at least 40 hours a week for 20
years of his life to pay off a 30-year mortgage.

Marijuana good for you

1/28/88 (C) --  Marijuana should be free. Marijuana is a miracle drug, a social sacrament. Like spinach, it’s
good for you. Marijuana improves your eyesight. It gives you peace. That’s why all those Indian gurus and
Buddha’s lived so long and died happy.

If marijuana was free and legal nobody would work for the filthy capitalists, money would be used for rolling
marijuana cigarettes and nobody would need to go hungry or sleep in the cold.

Let’s start living by legalizing moderate marijuana possession.

Get rid of signals

12/31/87 (C) -- The city traffic engineer’s plan to remove 24 of the most disruptive and unnecessary traffic
lights in Tucson is a great idea.

It’s blasphemy to tell a traffic cop or city court judge, as I did, that a traffic light you went through on a bicycle
is unnecessary.

Even though Arizona law says traffic laws that apply to bicycles should be reasonably enforced, I was fined
$30 for riding through an unnecessary light at Fourth Avenue and Sixth Street, after I had stopped and
determined there was no cross traffic coming.

I’m currently appealing the judge’s rigid, unreasonable and uninformed decision.

I believe I "won" the appeal by default and some signals were removed.

Treaty just a beginning

12/18/87 (C) -- A few years ago at Geneva, Switzerland, President Regan proposed to eliminate all nuclear
weapons in 10 years and then deploy SDI, his "peace shield."

It takes only one nuclear bomb to ruin the Soviets’ day, and if the Soviets then retaliated, the U.S. has SDI to
make our day a good one – if we dislike the communists.

Let’s eliminate nuclear weapons, SDI, state boundaries, money and laws. Jesus, Karl Marx, Buddha, Plato
and others believed in eliminating money or foresaw a kingdom of godliness that required no money or
laws.

Insurance rip-off

10/16/87 (S) -- This mandatory insurance law is the biggest taxpayer rip-off since the Central Arizona
Project canal. Insurance is another form of taxation.

Even motorcycles are required to carry liability insurance in the same amount of coverage as cars: How’s a
motorcycle going to cause $10,000 worth of property damage? And suppose the motorcycle does
seriously injure a pedestrian, bicyclist or other vehicle driver – the insurance doesn’t cover the motorcyclist’
s passenger – the hospital bill would easily exceed $15,000 liability coverage for bodily injury or death the
state requires.

If someone wants to drive around in a luxurious car that self-destructs in a 5-mile-per-hour accident, then let
them get uninsured motor vehicle insurance. And the real solution to bodily injury is national health
insurance.

Anything’s possible

2/14/87 (S) -- Before you write one of your anti-Soviet editorials like the one that appeared about this
alleged Soviet disinformation (that the CIA caused AIDS), I suggest that you do a lot more research and a
little more thinking.

Are you forgetting the 1967 Senate Intelligence Committee report documenting the CIA’s bacteriological,
truth serum, LSD and hypnosis experiments on unwitting subway passengers, Army soldiers and heroin
addicts?

Without the wealthy ...

1/10/87 (C) -- Of all the industrialized nations, only America and South Africa don’t have national health
insurance, i.e., free medical care. America has apartheid too (some people are more equal than others). If
America had socialized medicine, the rich would have to line up with the poor for the health care (and there
wouldn’t be high prices for prescription drugs either).

Liddy’s squad

7/28/86 (S) (C, 7/22/86, under the headline "Don’t need Liddy’s goons") Buried deep in the transcript
of an April 16 afternoon conversation on tape by Richard Nixon in his presidential office shortly after the
Watergate burglars, including G. Gordon Liddy, were captured, is Assistant Attorney General Henry
Peterson telling the president: "Liddy’s a nut, you see ... he’s a kind of a super patriot."

Your editorial didn’t go far enough warning how dangerous Liddy and his recently formed vigilante-for-hire
goon squad really is.

If the price is right, as Liddy says in his autobiography Will, (1980):

"(I) fail to see any distinction between killing an enemy soldier in time of declared war and killing an enemy
espionage agent in a Cold War, or even killing certain U.S. citizens."

Gays weren’t first

11/11/86 In an attempt to show the power of the "gay" community in the economy, homosexuals have been
marking their dollars with a rubber stamp that says "GAY $."

I have been marking "666" on my dollars to show that, as it says in the Bible, "no one buys or sells without
the money (Greek: Karagma) of the beast in mind or hand."

A few years ago in Tucson, the Secret Service arrested and jailed me and confiscated about $300 of my
marked money. I was charged with violating Title 18, Section 333 of the U.S. Code: "Intentionally rendering
U.S. currency unfit to re-issue."

The case was eventually dismissed and I unsuccessfully sued for the return of my legal tender, contending
that it wasn’t my intent to render the money unfit to re-issue, but to spread the word, and that the money is
indeed fit to re-issue.

The Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals refused to hear my appeal because I didn’t do some minor technicality
right and couldn’t afford the filing and transcript fees.

Unfit to reissue" is in the eye of the beholder/beast.

Eliminate root of all evil

12/7/85 (C) -- The best minds of every generation believed, more or less, in eliminating money (Marx,
Jesus, Buddha, Bertrand Russell, Thomas More, Francis of Assisi, Plato, Tolstoy and others.)

Half the workers in America work at archaic, unnecessary jobs (bankers, bookkeepers, accountants,
insurance, real estate, cashiers, law enforcement, sales clerks) and manufacturing unnecessary, unhealthy
things (bombs, cigarettes, booze, business suits, smut, luxuries).

We should negotiate with the Soviets to eliminate money, law and the state and establish a worldwide
technocracy.

William Long 12/14/85, David W. Schulze 12/21/85 and Robert Fisher 12/28/85 responded without
thinking.

A royal lesson

11/16/85 (S) (C 11/23/85) -- Why did the Prince and Princess of Wales come to America? To show us how
much fun nobility is (we should have some here, too); to inform us how to behave (they never carry any
money); because – as they claim – they wanted to view some British art (which they could have seen in
Britain); or to prove that Nancy and Ron aren’t the only good actors with contagious, oblivious bliss?

Spy novels no fiction

11/12/85 (C) -- In Richard Condon’s best-selling novel, The Manchurian Candidate, which later became a
popular movie starring Frank Sinatra, the Soviets kidnap and brainwash an American soldier in Korea.

Most spy novels have some basis in fact – William F. Buckley and E. Howard Hunt both write spy fiction
and served in the CIA. During the late ‘50s and ‘60s, the CIA experimented extensively with hypnosis and
truth serums.

Recently, a Soviet KGB agent claimed the kind of kidnapping and brainwashing in Condon’s novel was
done to him by Americans. The American government naturally denies it, offering several less credible
scenarios.

Morality of tobacco

4/22/84 (S) -- This is in regard to your May 6 editorial "A smoking question," which states churches in the
Bible Belt have been questioning the morality of growing tobacco and asking the Christian farmers to find
another crop.

In P. A. Sorokin’s
Social and Cultural Dynamics (1933), he quotes Charles E. Spener, an American
minister and educator, as saying, "The cultivation of tobacco brings money into the country, and is thus
useful not sinful." -- Carol Dearborn

Scoffed at Jesus and Mary

?? (C) -- W. P. Shofstall’s idea of the black South African majority not "voting with their feet" (Letter, 24
June) is more fallacious than the ‘60s idea of "love it or leave it." If America’s revolutionary founding fathers
thought this way, they would be back in Europe, and America would be colonies of England, France and
Spain.

The last paragraph of Shofstall’s letter infers that Marxism is the opposite of freedom and prosperity. True
Marxists are as hard to find as true Christians, but they both believe in a paradise where money and laws
are unnecessary – where the spiritual being of humanity will prosper and mature. This would be true
freedom.

Cynics, money-lovers (we either love money or hate it) and those without faith (pessimists), scoffed at and
scorned the ideas of Marx and Jesus.

Tax tyranny

6/2/?? (C) -- The easiest way to see that Tucson’s property taxes are too high is to look at Tucson’s
schools. Property taxes fund the Tucson Unified School District and little else. TUSD spends $4400 per
student, so a classroom size of 23 would cost TUSD taxpayers $101,200 for 175 days of classroom
babysitting. The mean TUSD teacher’s salary for 175 days of work is $35,000. So who gets the rest of the
$101,200 for teaching/brainwashing 23 kids?

The solution is to eliminate money, international boundary lines and laws or sign the property tax limitation
initiative and never surrender your AK-47 to the taxing, thieving tyranny.

Looking in from the outside

?? (S) (C, under the headline "Compare Cuba and Puerto Rico" ) -- If Nicaragua remains communist
and the U.S.-Contra, mercenary, CIA-trained saboteurs stop wrecking the Nicaraguan economy, then
peasants from neighboring countries and U.S. college students will visit Nicaragua, see the improvements
and prosperity, and more dominoes (military-industrial dictatorships) will fall.

This is why the United States tolerates Cuba (with 10 million people and about $4 billion to $8 billion in aid
from the Soviet Union and other countries), because it’s not easy for the masses and U.S. college students
to know what it’s really like there and compare it to Puerto Rico (with 3.2 million people, lots of crime and
$4.7 billion in U.S. aid), where more than half the population received U.S. food stamps and live in slums.

Why Regan hates Khadafy

?? (C) -- Reagan hates Khadafy because Khadafy is a charismatic theistic communist who believes in
eliminating money (the majority of the world’s population, being poor, would also consider this a good
idea), and recently signed treaties of unity with Algeria and Morocco, and established a military agreement
with Sudan after a 1985 coup d’etat deposed Sudan’s pro-USA dictator. These are the real reasons
sanctimonious Regan crusades hate against Khadafy.

Khadafy may support terrorists, but Reagan is a bigger supporter or terrorism: Angola, Nicaraguan
Contras, Marcos’ Philippines, El Salvador, South Africa, Chile, Haiti, Indonesia, Zaire, etc.

But the Messiahs Kingdom of God(liness) and True Israel/communism will not be established with tanks,
battleships and bloodshed, or have international boundaries, money, laws ...
