On what day did Jesus rise from the Tomb? Read here, here. Conventional wisdom holds that America has been a Christian nation since the “Founding Fathers.” What would be the impact on We, the Sheeple if a mass hallucination, illusion, or even a vast “mere clerical error” such as mistaking living people for living and/or dead “creatures”, perhaps even The Lamb of God, took ahold of “the Masses”? Would it give new meaning to the phrase, Mass Incarceration!? Shocked? Not yet? Well then, get out those tasers!

“…we are called upon to decide whether an unborn but viable fetus is a ‘human being’ within the meaning of the California statute defining murder (Pen. Code, § 187). We conclude that the Legislature did not intend such a meaning, and that for us to construe the statute to the contrary and apply it to this petitioner would exceed our judicial power and deny petitioner due process of law.” Keeler v. Superior Court (1970). Also, did you know? In Colorado, traffic infractions are not crimes, they are civil matters. Find out more: Class A Traffic Infractions, here.

This do in remembrance of me? Check out 1 U.S. Code: § 8 “Person”, “human being”, “child”, and “individual” as including born-alive infant, here. “…the term ‘born alive’, with respect to a member of the species homo sapiens, means the complete expulsion or extraction from his or her mother of that member, at any stage of development.” Hmmm…so, that last term is term Number 5?
A member? Don’t some folks refer to a man’s penis as his member? So… the Rabbi is performing circumcision, and his blade slips….? Linga is a Sanskrit word that means “mark”, “sign”, “gender”, “phallus”, “inference” or “eternal procreative germ.” Read more.

Does it matter, in law, if “born alive” is hyphenated? Does it matter that this term is not in quotes like the other terms in the list? Why is this term placed in quotes later in the statute? What’s the significance of quotes? “Quotation marks are for when you want to use someone else’s words in your writing,” writes Grammerly.

Who wouldn’t recognize these names? Adam & Eve? “Appellant Ginger Rogers and the late Fred Astaire are among the most famous duos in show business history. Through their incomparable performances in Hollywood musicals, Ginger Rogers and Fred Astaire established themselves as paragons of style, elegance, and grace. A testament to their international recognition, and a key circumstance in this case, is the fact that Rogers and Astaire are among that small elite of the entertainment world whose identities are readily called to mind by just their first names, particularly the pairing ‘Ginger and Fred.'” Read here, Rogers v. Grimaldi (1989).

“The defendant’s primary contention regarding probable cause is that, even if the allegations of the state are true, the death of Antonia does not amount to murder under General Statutes § 53a-54a, because Antonia was not a ‘person,’ as defined by the criminal code, at the time of the defendant’s actions.” STATE v. COURCHESNE (1999).
“The majority made explicit that they rejected the plain meaning rule. They stated that the rule means that in cases where the court finds that language is plain and unambiguous, the court cannot as a matter of law go beyond the text to consider other evidence of the language’s meaning no matter how persuasive it might be.
“Under the rule, courts seek the objective meaning of the language used by the legislature, not in what the legislature meant to say but in the meaning of what it did say. They stated that the rule has an exception when the plain and unambiguous meaning would create an unworkable or absurd result, but otherwise there is a threshold of ambiguity that the court must surmount in order to consult additional sources.” Summary of State v. Courchesne, here. Read more, Statutory Interpretation and State v. Courchesne, Christopher Reinhart, Associate Attorney, May 6, 2003. “…to apply a new interpretation of ‘human being’ retroactively would violate constitutional principles that prohibit retroactive criminal laws.” Read more, Murder of an Unborn Child, Christopher Reinhart, Feb. 19, 2002.
“…when an ‘unforeseeable state-court construction of a criminal statute is applied retroactively to subject a person to criminal liability for past conduct, the effect is to deprive him of due process of law…Analogizing to the prohibition against retrospective penal legislation, the high court reasoned ‘Indeed, an unforeseeable judicial enlargement of a criminal statute, applied retroactively, operates precisely like an ex post facto law, such as Art. I, § 10, of the Constitution forbids.” Keeler v. Superior Court (1970).
“We’re going to take a look at Henry’s genetic code. We’d like to take a look at the clock genes. And then I would like to run the same test on the fetus. Not to worry.

She plays Claire in the film; check out this fan site for the lovely RachelMcAdams.
Extraction? “The ‘rule of capture’ originated in the early laws governing ownership rights of wild animals. According to these rules, the first person to bring a wild animal under their control by capturing, killing or mortally wounding the animal acquired ownership rights of that animal. Later, this rule was applied to the ‘capture’ of natural resources.” Check out more, “extraction” of minerals, oil and gas, Compulsory Pooling Laws, here.
“The Arabs still call the Babylonian plain Shin-Iar or Shan-Iar, that is, Sun-god, for in the oldest Keltic, as well as modern Dravidian Tamil, I-AR is God; even in Arabic he was the Zu-piter of the groves. Am-on, Mars, and Jove were all symbolised by a Ram, and Sir William Drummond tells us that the Kaldian appelation for the sign Ares or Mars was ‘a young ram,’ or lamb, and Aries was Agnus, in Egypt called Amon or Ham-On, and by Hebrews Amor, all having the significiation of Love.” Rivers of Life… by Major-General J.G.R.

It’s a Christmas favorite! “…Some say it was Frigga’s tears that turned into the white berries that grow upon the mistletoe. And some say, too, that when Frigga placed these berries upon Baldur’s breast, he came to life again.

“The court concluded that the legislature did not intend a viable unborn fetus to be considered a human being for the purpose of the penal code.” Read more. “The state applied for an arrest warrant charging the accused with murder in the death of an unborn but viable fetus whose mother had allegedly been shot by the accused. The application for the warrant was denied, the legislature not having specifically defined the word ‘person’ as used in the homicide statutes to include an unborn but viable fetus. Memorandum on application for arrest warrant Application denied.” STATE v. ANONYMOUS (1986).
“…this paper is divided into three parts: in the first part, very briefly, it sets out the juridical nature of nationality distinguishing it from other legal institutes such as registration and legal personality. In the second part, nationality of a res is discussed, albeit restrictively in so far as a ship is allowed by the international community of states to partake of nationality. The third part considers nationality rules which are pertinent to animate persons whilst the conclusion draws comparisons, contrasts and parallels between both nationality of an animate and an inanimate person.
“It concludes that in the case of a ship, by its own very nature she is a creature of the law, being more the product of commercial maritime law, whose mind and will is dominated by a human being…” The legal fiction of a genuine link as a requirement for the grant of nationality to ships and humans – the triumph of formality over substance?

“The Greek law giver, Solon, declared that in the ideal State laws are few and simple, because they have been derived from certainties. In the corrupt State, laws are many and confused, because they have been derived from uncertainties. …Where there are many laws there is much lawlessness, and men come to despise and ridicule the restraints that are imposed upon freedom of action. Corrupt laws, resulting from efforts to amend inadequate legislation by further inadequate legislation, reveal a general ignorance of right and wrong. Where such ignorance exists the ideal function of democracy is impossible, and liberty degenerates into license.” Manley P.

“They hit the jackpot in life’s Wheel of Fortune!” Watch this video. Is Washington, the “washing” town? Might it mean…the place of money laundering? It’s interesting: laboratory has “labor” at its root. What a woman does when she’s pushing out a baby, what a man does when he’s chopping down a cherry tree – they seem very different, don’t they? Yet the same word describes both activities. Isn’t it interesting…. the definition of Labor? Also, here.

You’ll find this quote around 15 mins. in this video, above. “Satan has a counterfeit for every biblical theme.

General principles of statutory construction, here, here, here.
“The first red flag we should recognize …is the use of quotes around the term ‘illegal.’ In order for something to be illegal, we must have several things – a concrete body of law which was violated, a judiciary to arbitrate the dispute, and finally, a finding after a trial presenting both sides of the issue. Without these necessary requirements, we are substituting personal opinion for legal fact.” What are the “Returned Lands” of Hawaii? Read here.

As the victim would begin to moan and to cry out in pain, his cries would echo through the pipes in the head of the bull so it seemed to make the bull come alive.” The Seat of Satan: Ancient Pergumum, here, video.

“This Striding Snake Dragon of Marduk at one time decorated the Ishtar Gate which began the procession to the great temple of Marduk for about half a mile. The dragon is decorated in molded glazed bricks, with its scaly body of a dragon, head of a snake, hind feet claws of a large bird of prey, front paws of a lion and the tail of a deadly scorpion.It is interesting that the serpent in the Garden of Eden was apparently standing upright before it became cursed in the fall. The Hebrew word for serpent is ‘nachash’ and in Isaiah 27:1 the dragon is also referred to as the ‘nachash.’
“Marduk was the chief god of the Babylonians and Nebuchadnezzar is the king during this time period when the awesome Ishtar Gate was standing at the entrance to the great city of Babylon.

The Dragon of Marduk is extremely important in the study of Biblical Archaeology.” Read here, here.
“The auroch is an extinct type of large wild cattle that inhabited Europe, Asia and North Africa and is the ancestor of domestic cattle. The young bulls are associated with Adad, a weather god in the Babylonian pantheon. Adad had a twofold aspect, being both the giver and the destroyer of life. His rains caused the land to bear grain and other food for his friends, which his storms and hurricanes, evidences of his anger against his foes, brought darkness, want, and death. Adad was typically represented brandishing lightning bolts and standing on or beside a bull.” Read here. The Dragon of Marduk…real or imagined? Dinosaurs in Literature, here.

The parties rarely exercise their respective contractual rights; typically, they offset their contracts by entering the market a second time to acquire the same type of contract for which they bear an obligation opposite to their first transaction.” Read here.
“A or B” is inconsistent with “A not B.” This describes why the application of 35 U.S.C. § 101 by the U.S. Supreme Court is inconsistent with the U.S. Constitution, and thus unconstitutional. “The starting point in discerning congressional intent is the existing statutory text…'” Lamie v.
