It took many years on the part of many good people making terrible sacrifices to compile the information contained in "You Know Something Is Wrong When.....An American Affidavit of Probable Cause"----including forty years of my life and my husband's life, too.
This month we sent Paul Snover, the artist, a share of the royalties to help keep his boat afloat and buy new software and equipment that he needs to complete ongoing projects, and $600 more went in support of a court case in Florida that promises to yield information and precedent that will help victims of foreclosure fraud all across America, and another $2300 went in support of filing fees and travel expenses for our paralegal friend to pioneer the correction of political status process that is foundational to securing an end to the fraud and the debasement of everyone's freedom.
This is the way the money that comes from the book is spent----to help us help others take the actions that are needed to forge ahead and secure remedy for the wrongs we have all suffered and to pay the expenses for more publications and more actions that ultimately serve the public good. When you disrespect our plainly stated copyright found on page 2 of the book, you derail and defund that process and shoot us and everyone else who cares about freedom in the foot. You also commit an intellectual property rights crime.
Let me quote the actual copyright instructions found on page 2 in big, bold 22 pt. print: "Individuals and non-profit organizations are permitted to reprint written text material for credited inclusion in other publications distributed for educational and non-profit purposes." (Boldface emplhasis added.)
This means that you can freely quote the written text for inclusion in your own writings and publications so long as you credit the source and don't plagarize for profit. There isn't a single word about reproducing any of the cartoons. There is no wholesale grant suggesting that anyone is allowed to just scan and pirate their own de facto ebook copy and spread it all over the web.
Oddly enough, these infringement activities against our copyright most often come from friends and supporters who are trying their best to get the word out and educate others, some of whom can't easily afford print copies. We are sympathetic, but bear in mind, we are retirees who couldn't easily afford the expenses of mounting this whole project, either---and there are more projects to come that have to be paid for, too.
Since nobody else is standing up and offering to pay for the expenses of follow-up efforts, it looks like Our Team is on the hook to pay for all that, too. So. If you appreciate what has been done for you and for this country with the publication of "You Know Something Is Wrong When....An American Affidavit of Probable Cause" and you want to hasten the publication of "Stay Calm and Get Even....The American Bounty Hunter's Guide" we suggest that (1) everyone stop making and distributing knock-off copies of our book; (2) buy a copy for those who are truly in financial need; (3) send a donation in support instead of undermining the resources we have by dishonoring our copyright and teaching others to do the same.
We accept donations addressed to: Anna Maria Riezinger, c/o Post Office Box 520994, Big Lake, Alaska, RR 99652.
The work we are doing has to be done. If you want to see responsible and reliable and peaceful solution(s) to the problems-----what are you waiting for? Christmas?
More research has to be done. Law suits have to be pursued. Diplomatic missions have to be fulfilled. Paperwork has to be filed. Legal eagles have to be paid. (Even after lawyers see the light and tear up their Bar Cards and come over to our side of the issues, they have to feed their families.) Nationwide conferences and meetings have to be held. Travel expenses have to be paid. Hotels and car rentals and teleconferencing and transcription services---- all have to be paid. And not every valuable member of the team can afford to pay their own way, so guess what?
Many of you are concerned about the fate of Thomas Deegan and Ammon and Clive Bundy. Many are profoundly angered and saddened by the murder of LaVoy Finicum. Do you think these outrages can be addressed effectively by infringing our copyright and undermining our financial resources to carry on the work needed?
If you think for one moment that the "GOVERNMENT OF THE UNITED STATES, INC." which owns and operates the "FBI" and "BLM" is going to get away with stealing the land of the western United States by making false claims against the people and their property interests and by operating commercial mercenary armies disguised as "government agencies" on our soil ---think again.
Now ask yourself---- how good would it feel to take a breath without having to worry about "the government" and jack-booted thugs employed using your assets and your tax dollars threatening you and everything you have worked for?
If you want that outcome, do the honorable things that will make it possible. Start helping. Start donating. Start working. Start taking action. Start reading. Start researching. Start caring, And stop infringing on our copyright and undermining the resources we have to go forward. I have better things to do than fight copyright infringements in court, okay?
