18. The most powerful court in America is not the United States Supreme Court but, the Supreme Court of Pennsylvania. (42 Pa.C.S.A. 502)
§ 502. General powers of Supreme Court. The Supreme Court shall have and exercise the powers vested in it by the Constitution of Pennsylvania, including the power generally to minister justice to all persons and to exercise the powers of the court, as fully and amply, to all intents and purposes, as the justices of the Court of King's Bench, Common Pleas and Exchequer, at Westminster, or any of them, could or might do on May 22, 1722. The Supreme Court shall also have and exercise the following powers: (1) All powers necessary or appropriate in aid of its original and appellate jurisdiction which are agreeable to the usages and principles of law. (2) The powers vested in it by statute, including the provisions of this title.

People in the US have no idea how the law has been used as a weapon against them.

Sad thing is nobody believes these things. People are too busy caring about materials and status when they should focus on family and these truths.
Sometimes I think would it be better to be a sheep and asleep. A lot less stress would come from it but in the end I love the fact that I think freely and maybe that is the only freedom I'll ever truly have and I'm fine with that. My search for truth will continue regardless of opinions of mindless sheep.
And if you look around this is as accurate as it gets, each generation dumber and more materialistic.
Listen to all the self-righteousness! Sheesh!
It's very typical of the people around here to try to get any edge to make themselves feel "superior" to others. It's quite foolish since the moment people do know about this, you'll have to look elsewhere to know something "most people don't know." So it isn't difficult to imagine most people don't want others to know or else it kills their "superiority."
Bottomline is that several of these "facts" are not top priorities in the everyday existence of people who have lives and responsibilities to care for. It ridiculous to jump to the conclusion that people simply don't know some nugget of trivia because they are "too busy caring about materials and status." Give me a break! Just another exhibit of evidence that people just want to feel above others. Pure elitism.
Just because others are not like you does not make them sheep or any less free than you. In fact, they think freely, too. And for anyone that agrees with the idea that every generation gets dumber, just remember you are not the first generation.

Well if all of this is true and the world still works how it does then it is only logical to assume that most people do not know, because if they did, they would be rather angry about it.
And your statements kinda reflect yourself when you think about it, instead of being on one side or the other (as outlined by you) you have etched out a third, even more exclusive, place for yourself ie: the person who knows better then everyone else.edit on 14-11-2012 by Raivan31 because: (no reason given)
23. Britain is owned by the Vatican. (Treaty of 1213)
Pope Innocent III placed the kingdom of England under an interdict for five years between 1208 and 1213 after King John (King of England, reigned from 6 April 1199 until his death) refused to accept the pope's appointee Stephen Langton as Archbishop of Canterbury
24. The Pope can abolish any law in the United States. (Elements of Ecclesiastical Law Vol.1 53-54)
The etymology of government means to control the mind. From Latinised Greek gubernatio ”management, government
late 13c., from O.Fr. governer (11c., Mod.Fr. gouverner) "govern," from L. gubernare "to direct, rule, guide, govern" (cf. Sp. gobernar, It. governare), originally "to steer," a nautical borrowing from Gk. kybernan "to steer or pilot a ship, direct" (the root of cybernetics). The -k- to -g- sound shift is perhaps via the medium of Etruscan. Related: Governed; governing.

or From Latinised Greek gubernatio ”management, government”,
or from Ancient Greek κυβερνισμός, κυβέρνησις (kybernismos, kybernesis) “steering, pilotage, guiding”,
or what ever this is κυβερνάω (kybernao) “to steer, to drive, to guide, to act as a pilot” plus Latin mente ”mind”,
seems to check out all right, and all definitions are applicable, makes sense,
words are an awesome way to trek through history, family names too, though I'm surprised historical info such as above has not since been re-written,
