It used to be that our local library, and its quiet meeting room for group discussions or learning was thought to be a county building owned and shared by and for the people. So it seemed absurd that I was refused the meeting room for an hour and a half meeting.

They have a projector and a screen, so I thought it would be a wonderful place to show videos of our Constitution, Bill of Rights and other historic facts regarding our American heritage. I was graciously received by the library, but when I returned home I had a message saying unless I had a county paycheck coming to me I could not use the room. Something major happened between my very lovely reception by the library people and the time I arrived home.

The people of El Dorado are forming a common law grand jury, whether our leaders like it or not, in order to substantiate that the present judicial system is run on statutory law, which totally suppresses and “blackballs” common law, which is the basis on which our country was originally founded. There are no laws higher than common law, and our courts and leaders have been led to believe that the Constitution and common law are extinct dinosaurs that no longer prevail. Multiple case laws substantiate this to be a bald-faced lie. Chief Justice Scalia supports the fact that there is no higher jurisdiction than common law.

This is the people’s county. It has many problems. Only the people can take their country back, county by county. The remedy is the common law grand jury formed by we, the people.

I met with Sheriff D’Agostini, who was charming. He attends all the Tea Party meetings. He also gave me five copies of the Constitution for me to use in my first grand jury orientation. He took down the name of the gal who refused me the library as a meeting place. He told me to “give him a couple of days,” since my first choice would be where I have a digital projector and screen. I gave him Thursday and Friday. On Monday, the library is closed. So I gave him Tuesday. On late Tuesday afternoon I made a call to a friend who referred me to Brian Veerkamp, of the Board of Supervisors. Kathy, Brian’s secretary, was charming. She said not to worry, that Brian and the sheriff work together, so my efforts would not be stepping on anyone’s toes.

However, she blatantly asked me, “Where do you get your authority to teach the constitution?” This was at 4:30 p.m. The decision for the library could have been made in five minutes. It is well past 1 p.m. the next day, and there has been no answer from Brian. People, this is called “stonewalling.”

Apparently, our county is embarrassed by the people who pay their salaries. These very people can’t meet in the library. What a great county. I can’t wait to get involved, can you?

My e-mail is 4marjek@comcast.net. We are forming a common law grand jury, and the people’s response has been overwhelming. I just thought I would get the blessing of our leaders. Apparently the gratuities for the “good ‘ol boy’s club” behind the scenes are just too darn good to give up. They must think we, the people, are just part of a dumbbell population that puts their pants on differently from our leaders. What do you think?
