1. Did you know that part of the fine you pay goes into the judges' pension fund?

2. Did you know that many court documents are “signed” with a rubber-stamp? Did you know many attorneys have this rubber-stamp so they can fake the judge’s signature?

3. Did you know the IRS maintains a criminal investigation file on every Federal judge?

4. Did you know that the Post Office is not authorized to serve process? Did you know that they are not bonded for that, they are not paid for it, and the postman cannot see into the envelope, so he cannot swear to the contents of what he delivered (and he usually doesn't see who received it)? Do you realize that “service by mail” is therefore illegal? Did you know that "receiving" mail is a voluntary act, and you have the right to refuse mail?

6. Did you know that many of the judges haven't signed the correct oath of office as specified in the Oregon Constitution?

Article VII (Amended) Section 21. Oath of office of Supreme Court Judges. Every judge of the Supreme Court before entering upon the duties of his office shall take, subscribe, and transmit to the Secretary of State the following oath.—I __________ do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support the Constitution of the United States, and the constitution of the State of Oregon, and that I will faithfully, and impartially discharge the duties of a Judge of the Supreme, and Circuits (sic) Courts of said, State according to the best of my ability, and that I will not accept any other office, except Judicial offices during the term for which I have been elected.—

Did you know that in many of these judges' oaths, the words "and impartially" are gone?

Did you know there are no records of the 1910 vote amending Article VII? And that Gov. Frank W. Benson signed the Amended Article VII twice while illegally holding two offices?

Speaking of the Oregon Constitution:

Article I, Section 16. Excessive bail and fines; cruel and unusual punishments; power of jury in criminal case. Excessive bail shall not be required, nor excessive fines imposed. Cruel and unusual punishments shall not be inflicted, but all penalties shall be proportioned to the offense.—In all criminal cases whatever, the jury shall have the right to determine the law, and the facts under the direction of the Court as to the law, and the right of new trial, as in civil cases.
