 Tell your representatives in Congress to End Daylight Savings Time!!

Law and Order Recipes for Solutions it is time to repeal<br> DST


Daylight Saving Time [DST] is the 
Greatest Continuing Fraud ever perpetrated 
on the American people !!!
Tell your representatives in both the 
U.S. House and Senate it is time to repeal
DST; you want them to end DST.

Tell your representatives in both the U.S. House and Senate you want them to end DST. Fill out this form and forward it to your representatives.  
Mouse over the form above, click on it to download the form. Print it, and fill it in.  Send it to your representatives by fax, email-scan, or first class mail.   

Daylight Saving Time Is America's Greatest Shame

Daylight Saving Time [DST] is the greatest continuing fraud ever perpetrated on the American people. And this past weekend, the effect of this cruel monster reared its ugly head again.

Tell you representatives in Congress [Senate and House] you want to stop this insane practice. Let the representative know you want a change made to this outdated irrational Law.

On Sunday morning, Americans across the country were forced to set their clocks back one hour, and this week, the sun will begin its ambling lurch to set at 4:30 in the afternoon.

Technically-speaking, this sleep cycle-wrecking practice of setting our clocks back occurs so we can return to Standard Time after our flirty summer with DST. And the unsettling shift back to these hours, and the hour "we gain," is the back-end of the time-bargain we pay for setting our clocks forward in March to "maximize daylight"—a phrase probably better suited to organisms that rely on photosynthesis—during the spring and summer hours.

Why we try and "maximize daylight" like we're plants is actually an archaic practice first thought up in the late 1700s and often attributed to Benjamin Franklin. As some elementary school teacher may have explained to you, this was a practice to accommodate agricultural workers and farmers (wrong, and we'll get to this in a minute) or to lower the nation's electricity usage.

A lot of that is prime nonsense, pure b.s.. There is actually no benefit or rhyme or reason for why we had to endure this weekend's time shift and no reason we should even be playing with the idea of losing and gaining hours. Here's why:

The Energy Savings Are Minimal

A large push for DST has always been the idea that this time warp saved money and helped conserve energy. In the 1970s the energy crisis helped further this notion along. This is all a myth—the energy-savings are tiny. First off, did you notice any change in your energy bills between 2006-2008? I know that recalling electricity bills is asking a lot, but the reason I ask is that we actually extended DST by a month in 2007. The thought was that a month of DST would bring more savings.

That was wrong. The great energy-sucking state of California actually studied the impact of that extension and found it wanting. "Formally, weather- and lighting-corrected savings from DST were estimated at 0.18%," the California Energy Commission reported.

There was also another study on the state of Indiana, a state that went full DST in 2006. A team from Yale studied what happened post-DST, and found that the average Indianan was hit in the wallet by DST. National Geographic reported:

In their 2008 National Bureau of Economic Research study, the team found that lighting demand dropped, but the warmer hour of extra daylight tacked onto each evening led to more air-conditioning use, which canceled out the gains from reduced lighting and then some: Hoosiers paid higher electric bills than before DST, the study showed.

DST Is Bad For Your Health

Seasonal affective disorder [SAD], is when people get bummed out when the seasons shift. Sunlight plays a role into that, and you'd think that DST would be something everyone would be looking forward to. Wrong. In order to get more daylight during the day, DST short-changes the early-morning sun hours. Those hours are important for those affected by SAD. And it's also very important for your sleep patterns.

"Daylight savings time is anti-physiologic, and it’s a little deleterious, at least for several days," Dr. Nicholas Rummo, director of the Center for Sleep Medicine at Northern Westchester Hospital told Health.com, adding that "light earlier in the day is more helpful for them."

Research has also shown that DST, and shifts and the rupturing of sleep patterns is also linked to myocardial infractions (a.k.a. heart-attacks), car accidents, and medical equipment malfunctions.

Time Shifts Are Bad For Your Productivity 

American exceptionalism is a phrase we've heard a lot recently, and it's usually prefixed by words like "dwindling" or "losing faith in...". If we want to continue this path, then we might as well have DST and shifting time patterns every few months. The weird shift in time messes with our sleep patterns and our bodies, and our work.

"We're encountering data of an increase in extra auto and workplace accidents on Monday or perhaps even carrying through the first week of the Spring time shift," Dr. James Wyatt, at Rush University Medical Center told ABC News in 2012. National Geographic spoke with Till Roenneberg, a chronobiologist, and he explained why:

Light doesn't do the same things to the body in the morning and the evening. More light in the morning would advance the body clock, and that would be good. But more light in the evening would even further delay the body clock. 

DST Is Not Financially Responsible

Think about what you could do with $147 million. That's how much the Air Transport Association estimated the 2007, one-month shift cost the airline industry because time schedules with the world (a lot of which does not believe in DST) were messed up.

DST Is Not Helping Any Farmers

Oh right, we almost forgot about farmers. I remember my second grade teacher told skinny, frail, 7-year-old me, "We do this [time shift] for the farmers." I didn't know any farmers, but I remember feeling noble and helpful. I did not know I was being lied to.

"That's the complete inverse of what's true," Tufts University professor Michael Downing, told National Geographic. "The farmers were the only organized lobby against daylight saving in the history of the country." The reason, Downing explains, is that DST left them with less sunlight to get crops to market.

DST affects dairy farmers the most, since cows' bodies and the milk they're tasked with producing are affected by the time changes.

You Don't Even Like DST

"God, I love getting up an hour earlier," said no one ever. "Me too. I can't wait to have my schedule messed up in the fall," no one replied.

A 2011 Rasmussen poll (for what it's worth, Rasmussen can be a bit skewed when it comes to conservative politicians but seems to have no known bias against time zones) found that 47 percent (ha, Romney, ha) of Americans said DST was not worth the hassle.

So how do we fix all of this? The real evil here is change. No one really minds if 4 a.m. is 4 a.m. They (and their possible heart attacks) mind if for some reason or another that 4 a.m. is now 5 a.m and will be 4 a.m. in a few months. It's time to stop this insanity.

To tell you representatives in Congress [Senate and House] you want to stop this insane practice complete the form attached to this post and either fax, electronically mail, or send the request form to your representatives via first class mail that will let the representative know you want a change made to this outdated irrational Law.

The tome in support of our position on the elimination of daylight savings time was created by The Wire and found on:

 Virginia General Assembly Legislative Update 2-24-2017

Virginia General Assembly UpdatesAnonymous writes "

Special Update 2-24-2017



**********************************************************



The session is almost over.



Only two of the bills we are following are still being worked on: HB 2024 (“Quick Take” Condemnation Proceedings), and HB 1566 (Supervising Regulatory Boards). Both bills are in conference committee today.



We have been informed that HB 2024 is on the right track to be appropriately strengthened against the misuse of “quick take” proceedings, which was previously strengthened in the Senate from a 15-day to a 30-day notification window. This may be even further strengthened in conference committee. We are keeping an eye out.



HB 1566 is also in committee to discuss amendment #5 which the House rejected and the Senate has insisted upon. The amendment states, “That the provisions of this act shall not become effective unless an appropriation effectuating the purposes of this act is included in a general appropriation act passed in 2017 by the General Assembly that becomes law.” Given that the session ends on Sunday, this amendment will likely kill this bill.



**********************************************************



We ask that you contact the committee members listed below NOW, and ask that they REJECT HB 1566 Amendment #5. Please support this important regulatory reform.



HB 1566 Conference Committee:



Del. Richard L. Anderson (R) 804-698-1051 DelRAnderson@house.virginia.gov

SUCCESS



Passed: SB 1153 Inverse Condemnation Proceedings (final vote today, 2/22/17, on uncontested calendar)


Passed: SB 1421 Interest on Unpaid Condemnation Rewards (final vote today, 2/22/17, on uncontested calendar)

**********************************************************



I. WE SUPPORT THESE BILLS



Inverse Condemnation


SB 1153 Inverse condemnation proceeding; reimbursement of owner’s costs.



Directs the court to reimburse a plaintiff for the costs of an inverse condemnation proceeding for "damaging" property if a judgment is entered for the plaintiff. Under current law, the court is directed to award costs only for the "taking" of property. The change made in this bill corresponds with the language of amendments to Article I, Section 11 of the Constitution of Virginia, which became effective on January 1, 2013.



SB 1153 conforms the Virginia Code to the 2012 Property Rights Amendment, expanding the point at which reimbursements are awarded to include property damage; thereby eliminating an Equal Protection concern that currently exists.



Status: (We support this bill)

02/01/17 Senate: Reported from Courts of Justice (15-Y 0-N)

02/06/17 Senate: Passed Senate (40-Y 0-N)

02/08/17 House: Referred to Committee for Courts of Justice

02/08/17 House: Assigned Courts sub: Civil Law

02/13/17 House: Subcommittee recommends reporting (9-Y 0-N)

02/20/17 House: Reported from Courts of Justice (21-Y 0-N)



SB 1153 is on today’s uncontested calendar, 2/22/17, for its final passage. Thank you everyone for supporting this important eminent domain reform.



--------------------------------------------------------------------------



Interest Accrual of Condemnation Awards


SB 1421 Condemnation proceeding; interest on the amount of award



Provides that the interest on an award in a condemnation proceeding that is greater than the amount that the condemner deposited with the court shall accrue at the judgment rate of interest.



SB 1421 provides for the accrual of interest on the difference between the final determination of just compensation in a condemnation proceeding (i.e. the taking of property under the statutes of eminent domain), and that which may have already been received by the property owner. This not only handles a major concern regarding delays in the payment of properly awarded compensation for the condemnation of property, but also provides an incentive structure for organizations granted the powers of eminent domain to pay awards as soon as possible.





Status: (We support this bill)

02/01/17 Senate: Reported from Courts of Justice with substitute (15-Y 0-N)

02/06/17 Senate: Committee substitute agreed to 17105079D-S1

02/06/17 Senate: Passed Senate (40-Y 0-N)

02/08/17 House: Referred to Committee for Courts of Justice

02/08/17 House: Assigned Courts sub: Civil Law

02/13/17 House: Subcommittee recommends reporting with amendment (8-Y 0-N)

02/20/17 House: Reported from Courts of Justice with amendment (21-Y 0-N)



SB 1421 (amended) is on today’s uncontested calendar, 2/22/17, for its final passage in the House. We will look for the amended SB 1421 to be adopted by the Senate before the end of the week.



--------------------------------------------------------------------------



“Quick Take” Condemnation Proceedings


HB 2024 Condemnation powers and proceedings; imminent threat to public health, safety, and welfare.



Provides that "quick take" condemnation proceedings are available for use only when a court determines that the use of such procedure is necessary to protect against an imminent threat to public health, safety, and welfare.



HB 2024 requires that public entities allowed to exercise eminent domain gain judicial approval before engaging “quick-take” condemnation proceedings. This bill ensures that these types of proceedings will only occur if “such procedure is necessary to protect against an imminent threat to public health, safety, and welfare.”



House substitute: It should be noted that the new language of the bill, substituted in sub-committee on Wednesday, 1/25/17, was not published until after the committee vote was taken on Friday, 1/27/17. Delegate Freitas’ assertion that the bill had essentially been gutted, has proven true. All judicial protections were removed and substituted with a 15-day notification requirement before “quick take” proceedings can be enacted. This is a far weaker bill than was initially sponsored by Del. Freitas, so much so that it may no longer warrant support. We reserve judgment until we see if the language will change in the Senate.



Senate substitute: The Senate changed 15-day notification to 30-day.



Status: (We support this bill)

01/25/17 House: Subcommittee recommends reporting with substitute (8-Y 0-N)

01/27/17 House: Reported from Courts of Justice with substitute (21-Y 0-N)

02/02/17 House: VOTE: BLOCK VOTE PASSAGE (95-Y 0-N)

02/03/17 Senate: Referred to Committee for Courts of Justice

02/08/17 Senate: Reported from Courts of Justice with substitute (14-Y 0-N)

02/14/17 Senate: Passed Senate with substitute (40-Y 0-N)

02/16/17 House: VOTE: REJECTED (0-Y 97-N)

02/20/17 Senate: Senate requested conference committee

02/21/17 House: House acceded to request



HB 2024 (Senate substitute) has been rejected by the House, and the Senate has requested a conference committee. A conference committee membership list has not yet been released.



--------------------------------------------------------------------------



Supervising Regulatory Boards


HB 1566 Professions and occupations; active supervision of regulatory boards.



Establishes a statewide policy for the regulation of professions and occupations specifying criteria for government regulation with the objective of increasing opportunities, promoting competition, encouraging innovation, protecting consumers, and complying with applicable federal antitrust laws. In addition, the bill establishes a process for the active supervision of state regulatory boards pursuant to the U.S. Supreme Court decision in North Carolina State Board of Dental Examiners v. Federal Trade Commission, in which the Court held that a state regulatory board that includes active market participants among its board membership must be actively supervised by the state in order for such board and its members to be entitled to immunity for federal antitrust violations.



HB 1566 requires that regulatory commissions which include active market participants, e.g. doctors who are on the board of health, must be actively supervised to ensure that regulations and restrictions are not subject to anti-trust liability. This bill seeks to ensure that regulations such as inspections, professional certifications and registrations, and occupational licensing are not being used to limit competition and hinder free entry into the market. The bill also provides for the immediate review of all new regulations as well as a review of all past occupational regulations to be completed in 5 years.



Substitution: The new language has weakened the bill, essentially allowing for certain regulatory boards to continue to limit competition (the Bar Association, for instance); however, it still targets many of the markets which seriously need regulatory reform (specifically regarding occupational licensing).

II. WE OPPOSE THESE BILLS



Farm Inspections and Penalties


SB 1195 Produce safety; farm inspections; Agriculture Civil Penalty Fund; penalties.



Prohibits certain farms from violating the federal regulations that set minimum standards for the safe growing, harvesting, packing, and holding of fruits and vegetables. The bill authorizes the Board of Agriculture and Consumer Services to adopt regulations to carry out the purposes of the law and gives the Commissioner of Agriculture and Consumer Services free access at all reasonable hours to any farm to inspect the farm and take samples. The Commissioner also is authorized to seize certain produce that he believes to violate the federal regulations or state law. The bill makes the act of obstructing an inspector a Class 2 misdemeanor and of violating any other provision of the law or a Board regulation a Class 1 misdemeanor. In lieu of a criminal penalty, the Board is authorized to levy a civil penalty of up to $1,000 per violation, to be deposited in an Agriculture Civil Penalty Fund that is created by the bill.



SB 1195 permits the Commissioner of Agriculture to surprise inspect any small farmer, defined in Federal Code as any farm producing more than $25,000 and less than $500,000 annually. During these inspections, an inspector may confiscate produce without due process and levy a fine of up to $1,000 per violation. Per the substituted language of SB 1195, the proceeds from the civil penalties will be deposited into the Stormwater Local Assistance Fund.

02/21/17 Senate: House substitute agreed to by Senate (25-Y 14-N)



SB 1195 has passed returned to the Senate and passed. In response to questions as to why this heinous bill passed, many (Republican) Delegates and Senators have released an email consisting of canned talking points which essentially pass the blame to the Federal level, and suggest that we, as citizens should take our grievances to our federal representatives. This is a cowardly, patronizing, and poorly conceived response. When the establishment circles the wagons, and attempts to pass the blame, our reply should be to burn the wagons. It is time that our majority Republican General Assembly stand up for Virginians, even against the Federal Government. The fact that our Republican delegates can be so easily cowed by Federal statutes is extremely concerning.



---------------------------------------------------------------------------



Short Term Rental Registration


SB 1578 Short-term rental of property; registration of persons offering property for rental.



Authorizes a locality to adopt an ordinance requiring the registration of persons offering property for short-term rental. The bill defines "short-term rental" as the provision of a room or space suitable for sleeping or lodging for less than 30 consecutive days. Persons and entities already licensed related to the rental or management of property by the Board of Health, the Real Estate Board, or a locality would not be required to register. The bill authorizes localities to impose fees and penalties on persons who violate the registry ordinance or who offer short-term rentals that have multiple violations of state or federal laws or ordinances, including those related to alcoholic beverage control. The bill amends the Alcoholic Beverage Control (ABC) Act to clarify that certain property rented on a short-term basis is considered a bed and breakfast establishment for purposes of ABC licensing and that the exception from ABC licensing for serving alcoholic beverages to guests in a residence does not apply if the guest is a short-term lessee of the residence.



SB 1578 requires the registration and permits the regulation by local governments of “short-term rental properties” such as those vacation rentals accessed through applications like Airbnb, VRBO, and Home Away. This is in direct contrast to last year’s Airbnb Law, which restricted localities ability to regulate the private use of an individual’s property. This law opens the gate to the increasingly restrictive ordinances by local governments using general land use and zoning authority powers to keep local property owners from making the best use of their personal property, thereby potentially causing an increase in unused capital (implying possible sunk costs which must be absorbed by the property owner) throughout the Commonwealth.



SB 1579 has also been incorporated into SB 1578. SB 1579 establishes the requirement of a minimum of $500,000 in liability insurance as well as a $10,000 fine for property owners who operate short-term rentals without the express permission of their local government.

Local Zoning Ordinances for Utilities


HB 1766 Utility Facilities Act; associated facilities of an electrical transmission line.



Provides that the issuance by the State Corporation Commission of a certificate of public convenience and necessity for construction of an electrical transmission line of 138 kilovolts and any associated facilities shall be deemed to satisfy local comprehensive plan requirements and all local zoning ordinances with respect to the transmission line and associated facilities. The measure defines "associated facilities" as including any station, substation, transition station, and switchyard facilities to be constructed in association with the 138-kilovolt transmission line.



This issue is a tough one, and one we considered very carefully. HB 1766, and its companion SB 1110, essentially remove zoning restrictions for the installation of electrical facilities that Dominion Power wants to put in. We want to be crystal clear: in opposing this bill we are not in support of zoning laws in any shape, form, or by any other name. Zoning laws are, by their very nature, anathema to private property rights. In opposing this bill, we are opposing any further special privilege allotted to Dominion Power (or any other government supported power company) as a supposedly private organization which has often misused the power of eminent domain (a power which it should never have been permitted to use), and has essentially been maintained for years as a government mandated monopoly in the Commonwealth of Virginia. If Dominion Power were being granted this privilege by way of the elimination of local zoning ordinances for all Virginia property owners, then we would stand in passionate support. However, this is not that bill, so we must OPPOSE.



Status: (We OPPOSE this bill)

01/17/17 House: Reported from Commerce and Labor (18-Y 1-N)

01/24/17 House: VOTE: PASSAGE (67-Y 30-N 1-A)

Broadband Expansion


HB 2108 Virginia Wireless Service Authority Act; rates and charges



Provides that a wireless services authority may fix rates, fees, and charges for services provide, or facilities owned, operated, or maintained by the authority, for which the authority has received loan funding. Currently, an authority may do so only if it has issued revenue bonds. A similar change authorizes rates to be set at levels to provide for payment of loans. The measure also requires each authority to maintain records demonstrating compliance with certain provisions and to make the records available for inspection and copying by the public pursuant to the Virginia Freedom of Information Act, notwithstanding any exemption in that Act or in the Virginia Wireless Services Authority Act.



Much of this bill is simply direction as to the way government owned broadband networks (GON) will set prices. It is our firm belief that government entities, and all levels, should not engage in any market at any time; however, local governments in the Commonwealth have been and still are organizing efforts to expand broadband access in their jurisdictions. The problem is that many times these efforts come with FOIA exemptions which make it extremely difficult for people to keep them accountable (To see what happens when these organizations are not kept accountable check out the Report on the Bristol Virginia Utilities Authority). This bill states specifically that all broadband operating authorities will be required to maintain records to be provided to FOIA requests regardless of previous exemptions from transparency requirements.

The Senate amendment to HB 2108 drops the important language which would have eliminated FOIA exemptions for localities with regards to broadband expansion projects. This removal has completely changed the language of this bill.

02/02/17 House: Reported from Commerce and Labor with substitute (11-Y 9-N)

02/06/17 House: Committee substitute agreed to 17105141D-H2

Tell Us About the Horrors of Your Divorce

the horrors you faced in family court

Tell us about the horrors you faced in family court.   Tell us about the problems you had with property settlement, child support, alimony   and custody issues as it related to your separation or divorce.  

A fit parent''s right to his children and a person''s right to private property are two of the oldest-recognized natural or unalienable rights.  These rights protect individuals from government intrusion in their most intimate relationships (parent-child) and possessions (home).  They preserve the sanctity of the family and the home.
 
Unfortunately, the American family and the American home are both under government assault.  When the United States Supreme Court announced its Kelo decision just a few years ago, the public suddenly realized government has almost unbridled power to take their homes.  The public did not realize government has even greater power to take their children.  Because the United States Supreme Court (or any federal court) rarely hears family law cases, these cases get very little public or national attention, such as the Kelo case received.  With very little public scrutiny, family courts have slowly chipped away at parental rights to the point where these once-sacred rights are now nothing more than a mere government-privilege.  Parents often see their children only as much as a judge will permit and make child-rearing decisions only to the extent a judge allows.
 
The Fifth and Fourteenth Amendments of the United States Constitution undoubtedly protect the rights to life, liberty, and property, including parental rights.  While all courts admit the Fourteenth Amendment protects parental rights, they typically follow this admission by dismantling or ignoring this right.  Each parent has equal rights to their child, yet courts routinely reduce one parent to a mere visitor in their child''s life.  Courts are now the largest cause of fatherlessness (and sometimes motherlessness) in America.
 
As it now stands, a parent''s right to his or her children (supposed "fundamental" or natural rights) are subject to the whim of the child''s other parent and the unfettered discretion of a single judge.  If one spouse chooses to exit the marriage, a judge then decides how much time each parent may see the child.  Instead of recognizing the equal rights of each parent, judges generally issue lopsided custody orders which allow the child to see one parent for only 20%-30% of the child''s life.  The typical every other weekend scenario removes the non-custodial parent from their child''s life for nearly 80% of the child''s life--all in the "best interests of the child."
 
Unbeknownst to many, the state has great incentive to separate a parent and child.  Under Title IV(D) of the Social Security Act, the state receives federal money based on the creation of a non-custodial parent and the number of child support dollars that flow through the state''s courts.  The longer the state keeps the child from one parent, the more child support the non-custodial parent must pay and thus the more federal money the state gets.
 
This situation is not only perverse and immoral but also unconstitutional.  Two, fit parents have equal rights to their children.  Most importantly, children have a fundamental right to a meaningful relationship with each parent.  Yet, family courts have converted children into a mere creature of the state which now decides the relationship the child may have with each parent, despite the fact that both parents may be fit and pose no threat of harm to the child. 
 
If you have experienced the horrors of family court, please contact us at general.counsel@uarf.us .  We are compiling data for research purposes and are looking into taking action to stop the family court''s impermissible intrusion into the American family, as well as the family courts'' destruction of the United States Constitution.

Mission Statement

Mission Statement

About The Unalienable Rights Foundation

The Unalienable Rights Foundation focuses on promoting good government practices: designating officials who sacrifice the common good to special interests. We will help Americans to shine a light on those who betray the public trust:

If a public official misuses his position to demand campaign contributions, the Foundation will find creative ways to seek civil remedies.
If a witness is threatened or punished because he/she reported official misconduct, the Foundation will fight back on behalf of the witness.
If a government agency withholds information to which the public is entitled, the Foundation will help enforce legal rules regarding disclosure.
If a group libels an honest public servant, the Foundation will help the victim defend his reputation.

The Foundation will seize opportunities like these, bringing high-impact public exposures of evil doers. The majority of our reports and stories will focus on real people and their stories about the lack of government integrity. Not only do these people need and deserve our support, their stories can serve as powerful tools to seize public attention and move public opinion.

The Foundation will work with the press, government investigators, and other public interest groups to make sure that these peoples'' stories are heard. In the process, Foundation will build a non-partisan investigative alliance that transcends specific issues. Our aim is to encourage officials to be open about their values and to act based upon their honest and best assessment of the public interest.

As we do this, over time Foundation will develop a network of public interest groups, sympathetic government investigators and media contacts ... a far-reaching, more mainstream version of the conservative league of individuals that has been so effective. We will work with that network to focus public attention on government integrity and to educate the public about dishonest or disingenuous government officials. If history is any indication, this type of network can have a substantial impact on public opinion.
