    During his many talks and dialogues, Krishnamurti described in different ways what he meant by the word dialogue. He talked of awareness; the art of listening, seeing, learning; he investigated the question of the division between the observer and the observed; and of the necessity of being free from attachment for inquiry to take place. Krishnamurti also frequently expressed the need to be “hungry”–to be passionately interested in understanding the nature of thinking – otherwise only words would be exchanged in talking together with others. -- Kinfonet

    Victims of Cookeville annexation aggression can fight back!

    Judge John J. Maddux Jr. has county official work on his property on government time, Herald-Citizen inadevertantely discloses -- or was Coomer there without permission?
    Welcome to Al Gore's corner of the world

    Lewis Coomer rolls hay at Judge John J. Maddux Jr.'s property during government business hours, H-C inadvertently reports

    Story says Coomer used cell phone to call cops after confronting burglary suspects. Authorities say arrest was at 2:30 p.m. Thursday.
    [But if he has a cell phone, why does he use his Justice Center office number -- and county employees -- to take calls on his private apartment rental business which he also operates during business hours?]

    Circuit Court Clerk Lewis Coomer:
    Lewis Coomer might as well rent out his office space in the Justice Center to someone who actually works there . . . Of course, when you're pals with a judge, you can do anything you want!
    He lies.
    He steals.
    He cheats.
    He rolls hay.
    Lewis Coomer is a thief
    'People who tell the truth about me are 
    sum bitches,' Coomer might as well say.

    Now, Judge John J. Maddux Jr. is getting his hay rolled by this corrupt public official on government time, the H-C inadvertently reveals.

    What will this do to Maddux's  chances of becoming a federal judge should  Al Gore become president?

    Judge Maddux purportedly was not at home Saturday morning or at Judge Sells' number and did not return calls from The Pit before press time. [931KB .wav file]

    Guestbook entry:
    "You got one super publication here. I encountered the Byron Looper story on a newsgroup about appalachia and wandered through the Herald stories and backtracked to this site. WOW!!! 

    I hope you have a brick wall around your place. The "powers that be" must hate the ever lovin' blue eyed #$@%! out of what you are doing. 

    I am going to come back to the site to see what some of the other things are you write about but Looper is what got me here. I am going to tell a friend of mine who is a retired Freedom Papers publisher about the site to see how he likes it. 

    Thanks for a great site; the dog nose is cool, and like the old man said to Jeremiah Johnson --hold on to your hair pilgrim." PJ in Weenieville

    Essential Links for Enlightened Leaders

    As Bertrand de Jouvenel has sagely pointed out, through the centuries men have formed concepts designed to check and limit the exercise of State rule; and, one after another, the State, using its intellectual allies, has been able to transform these concepts into intellectual rubber stamps of legitimacy and virtue to attach to its decrees and actions. Originally, in Western Europe, the concept of divine sovereignty held that the kings may rule only according to divine law; the kings turned the concept into a rubber stamp of divine approval for any of the kings' actions. The concept of parliamentary democracy began as a popular check upon absolute monarchical rule; it ended with parliament being the essential part of the State and its every act totally sovereign. As de Jouvenel concludes: 
                   Many writers on theories of sovereignty have worked out one . . . of these restrictive devices. But in the end every single such theory has, sooner or later, lost its original purpose, and come to act merely as a springboard to Power, by  providing it with the powerful aid of an invisible sovereign with whom it could in time successfully identify itself.

    Lying cop
    Monterey Police Officer Tim Murphy said the gun used to kill Sen. Tommy Burks was one of two 9 mm pistols he bought illegally in March 1997. Murphy lied under penalty of perjury when he said he was going to use them in his work. In fact, former Mayor John Bowden gave him $700 in advance to make the purchase. Should Murphy be punished for lying, as provided by law?

    What outsiders think when they read about Putnam County politics

    Guestbook entry from prospective Putnam County employer who followed Looper trial:
    "After reading some of this crap, I wouldn't move to Putnam for love nor money." 

    A lot of others wouldn't move to a city governed by Fascists, either, so the government, desperate for taxes, overpowers resistance and annexation, allowing those who want to defend  their land, their families and their political ideas only 3 minutes to plead for leniency. Who would want to live in a place where the officials would tell citizens trying to speak about their futures not to create "an emotional circus?" Story.
