First Inaugural Address (March 4, 1933) excerpt
Franklin D. Roosevelt
If I read the temper of our people correctly, we now realize as we have never realized before our interdependence on each other; that we cannot merely take but we must give as well; that if we are to go forward, we must move as a trained and loyal army willing to sacrifice for the good of a common discipline, because without such discipline no progress is made, no leadership becomes effective. We are, I know, ready and willing to submit our lives and property to such discipline, because it makes possible a leadership which aims at a larger good. This I propose to offer, pledging that the larger purposes will bind upon us all as a sacred obligation with a unity of duty hitherto evoked only in time of armed strife. With this pledge taken, I assume unhesitatingly the leadership of this great army of our people dedicated to a disciplined attack upon our common problems.
Pledge (definition – Black’s Law Dictionary – 3rd Ed. 1933)
In the law of bailment. A bailment of goods to a creditor as security for some debt or engagement. A bailment or delivery of goods by a debtor to his creditor, to be kept till the debt be discharged.
Fireside Chat 2: On Progress During the First Two Months (
May 7, 1933) excerpt
Franklin D. Roosevelt
Much has been said of late about Federal finances and inflation, the gold standard, etc. Let me make the facts very simple and my policy very clear. In the first place, government credit and government currency are really one and the same thing. Behind government bonds there is only a promise to pay. Behind government currency we have, in addition to the promise to pay, a reserve of gold and a small reserve of silver. In this connection it is worth while remembering that in the past the government has agreed to redeem nearly thirty billions of its debts and its currency in gold, and private corporations in this country have agreed to redeem another sixty or seventy billions of securities and mortgages in gold. The government and private corporations were making these agreements when they knew full well that all of the gold in the United States amounted to only between three and four billions and that all of the gold in all of the world amounted to only about eleven billions.

Franklin D. Roosevelt
I mention only a few of the major enactments. It provided for the readjustment of the debt burden through the corporate and municipal bankruptcy acts and the farm relief act.
Jovial, you don’t know nearly as much about the trading of ‘persons’ or 'conspiracy theories' as you think. Attached are a couple scans from a birth certificate (my deceased sisters' – a legal copy obtained in 2005) that I found recently while sorting through some of her things. You notice that the stripes on the back of that birth certificate contain the term ‘Indiana Security’ over and over. So the birth certificate is a ‘security’.
Securities (definition – Black’s law Dictionary – 6th Edition)
Stocks, bonds, notes, convertible debentures, warrants, or other documents that represent a share in a company or a debt owed by a company or government entity. Evidences of obligations to pay money or of rights to participate in earnings and distribution of corporate assets. Instruments giving to their legal holders rights to money or other property; they are therefore instruments which have intrinsic value and are recognized and used as such in regular channels of commerce.
So my sister’s birth certificate is a negotiable instrument having to do with debt, obligations, companies, government entities, corporate assets, and has intrinsic value, and is used in commerce!
Question: who is the legal holder? Answer: the government or whomever it pledged them to. They created this security and that’s why you have to pay a fee to get a copy of it.
Question: what is the debt owed by this government entity? Answer: how about trillions of dollars of
government debt. US
Question: who is owed these trillions of dollars? Answer: The privately owned Federal Reserve Bank.
Stramineus Homo – (definition – Black’s Law Dictionary – 3rd Ed)
A man of straw, one of no substance, put forward as bail or surety.
Question: did God create people or entities? Answer: God created men and women – not entities or 'men of straw'. Entities are created by governments. There are three artificially created entities that I am aware of that have ALL CAPS NAMES: corporations, trusts, and vessels. Just as your birth certificate, they too are all in commerce.
As for the ALL CAPS NAME: show me (or anyone else) any document you receive from any level of government that doesn’t have the ALL CAPS name (with the possible exception of your property tax bill). Check your credit cards, utility bills, and driver’s license and see if your name isn’t in ALL CAPS. Do you think that is just a coincidence? Strangely enough, your birth certificate has the ALL CAPS name also ….. that is where it originated and that is when & where YOU were created.
I have find it VERY interesting that when I get junk mail (wanting me to sign up for a new credit card or service) from a bank or a utility company they render my name correctly with the first letters only capitalized. However, when I have signed up for a new service or receive a bill, suddenly I have become the ALL CAPS ENTITY. THEY know difference!
You put a lot of faith in Judges (who are all lawyers) even though Jesus said in Luke 11:52 “Woe unto you, lawyers! for ye have taken away the key of knowledge: ye entered not in yourselves, and them that were entering in ye hindered.” Jovial, you have been ‘hindered’. Lawyers haven’t changed much in nearly 2000 years! You go ahead and believe the lawyers, I’ll believe the Bible first and my observations secondly.
