Your humble webmaster has had a few disagreements with "gubmint" from time to time, and with the way "justice" is administered by America's intellectually corrupt and morally bankrupt judiciaries. These pamphlets, titled "Common Sense" in honor of Thomas Paine, were written as an integral part of those Culture War struggles. I posted them on this website, in part, to chronicle those struggles. It is hoped the reader will find them interesting. Perhaps even more importantly, it is hoped they will serve as inspiration and a template for how to go about engaging in the time-honored art of political pampheteering.

I you read the pamphlets, you will (of course) notice what are euphemistically referred to as "typos". In other words, mistakes in editing. That's the unique thing about editing: if you read the document once and there are no errors, you have done an adequate job of editing. On the other hand, if you have read the document a hundred times and errors still remain, you have not done a good enough job of editing. With editing, the amount of effort is pretty much irrelevant. It's the result that matters. There are few things more momentarily frustrating than getting a pile of pamphlets back from the printer and discover error/s you hadn't notice prior to the printing.

These Common Sense pamphlets are in Portable Document Format (PDF). If you don't already have Adobe Reader, you can DOWNLOAD IT HERE so you can read the pamphlets. If you are using the Mozilla Firefox browser, there is a very cool PDF reader called Foxit which you can DOWNLOAD HERE. I use both Mozilla Firefox and Foxit, and have noticed that PDF documents open noticeably faster in Foxit.

"LEGAL" BIGOTRY (PART 3); THE BIG LIE; THE MEDIA ATTACK DOG, POLITICAL VENDETTAS, AND THE REAL TAX CHEATS

This pamphlet is longer (36 pages, including the 4-page insert). So it might take a little longer to open. But be patient, because it DOES open!

NO-KNOCK WARRANTS: PROTECTION OR TYRANNY?

You may notice that on the second page I penciled out two lines because they amounted to a typo and should have been omitted except for insufficient editing. That was due to the fact the pamphlet was thrown together at the very last second so it could be handed out at a public meeting by Archuleta's family and supporters. Hey, that's how life is in the "emergency" pamphleteering game!

CRIMINAL* BEHAVIOR BY LOCAL PREACHER CALLS FOR DE-FROCKING

* Misprision of serious crime (e.g. perjury, false reporting, fraud upon the court, etc.), and conspiracy to obstruct justice by manipulating “the system” into violating the fundamental rights of citizens in violation of 18 USC 241,242 and other statutes.

According to Black’s 4th Ed. Law Dictionary, “misprision” means “...a misdemeanor (misdemeanors are ‘criminal,’ as opposed to ‘civil’ — Common Sense) which does not have a specific name...neglect or light account made of a crime, that is, failure in the duty of a citizen to endeavor to prevent the commission of a crime, or, having knowledge of its commission, to reveal it to the proper authorities.”
