    Hello all. I have received in the mail today a quote from the court that the transcripts required to move proceed in my appeal is $953.90. I need to pay this ammount and submit it to the court no later than Monday March 22nd, 2010.

    If you are capable and willing to contribute any amount to achieve this amount it would be greatly appreciated.

    I would like to also take this time to thank all who support me, even if you can't afford to donate anything to this cause.

    If you are interested in sending a check, PM me. Otherwise you can send via PayPal or GunPal (you might guess which is preferred).

    My e-mail for this is claytonmscott @ yahoo.com

    I will try and keep a tally going so that we know when to stop.

    We do have some OC'ers that have pledge to cover this to ensure meeting of the deadline, but I would request that we still do what we can to reduce any one individuals cost.

    For the deadline, these things are set by procedure and not unique to my case.

    So you will make the deadline? Is this just the court costs? Do you still need funds for your Lawyer?

    Hell, I'll match chewy's 20.

    If everyone thinks someone else will take care of it, then noone will do anything about it.

    Check your PMs. I'm good for $30. If you do not accumulate enough, you can keep it to defray your previous legal expenses.
    I'll make you an offer: I will argue and fight for all of your rights, if you will do the same for me. That is the only way freedom can work. We have to respect all rights, all the time--and strive to win the rights of the other guy as much as for ourselves.

    If I am equal to another, how can I legitimately govern him without his express individual consent?

    There is no human being on earth I hate so much I would actually vote to inflict government upon him.

    At this time I am trying to remain as low-key on this as possible for strategic reasons.

    Trust me when I say that I am doing so with very specific strategy in mind.

    **ADD** No, I just mean that I wont be making the appeal as public as the trial. I would like to keep the fund-raising to only that which is actually needed to cover the costs. I wouldn't even be asking for this if I could possibly swing this myself and am not trying to make it rich of open carriers. . . . I will however not hate so terribly making a few dollars back from the City of Alhambra.

    Jesus, why does it cost so much for this stuff? Do they classify and compartmentalize information in complicated cardfiles and hanging folder drawers using the dewey decimal system? I'm going to have to do a comparison for North Carolina because if you ask me, people are already being paid to do this stuff but I can understand a nominal fee, but almost a grand?!

    The government doesn't want people to appeal, especially if they're law-abiding citizens who are completely innocent and have been persecuted into near-ruin. It's really as simple as that.

    We're lucky it was not almost 10 times that sad to say.

    Everyone who has ever OCed, wanted to OC, thought about OCing, or is interested in OCing in CA should give $25, $50, or $100 for this very important appeal opportunity. We have one week to get this amount!

    I'll send funds as soon as GunPal verifies my bank account. I have PayPal ready to go but I won't use it unless I have to.

    On a side note, once I complete my P90X program I wouldn't mind a kilt! Ha. I never did get around to making one for myself. . . .but seeing as how I look to get rid of about 6 sizes from my waist it is probably a good thing.

    Is that stuff really working for you?

    I always kinda thought of it as over marketed, makes more sense to be committed to long term fitness in my eyes. I know a bunch of college guys in Merced who did it, then they pretty much never showed up near the gym.

    It is over marketed, but like any program if you use it properly it will work. The purpose of starting this program is the speed of getting into a program and consistent results. Once the habit if formed by dedicating the time and energy it would be easier to take a more long-term approach. When I do something I like to hit it hard and P90x provides that for an overweight extremely out of shape ex-Army man.
