Administrative Law Judge Says Washington State Perv Can Keep Ham License (Mar 10, 2010) -- In January 2007, the FCC issued an Order to Show Cause to David L. Titus, KB7ILD, of Seattle, Washington, to justify why his General class Amateur Radio license should not be revoked and initiated a hearing process to determine whether Titus “is qualified to remain a Commission licensee” in light of a 1993 felony conviction at the age of 18 for “communicating with a minor for immoral purposes.” According to the FCC order, Titus received a 25-month prison sentence for this act, and the Seattle Police Department has identified him as a registered sex offender. On March 9, Administrative Law Judge Richard L. Sippel issued his Initial Decision -- saying that Titus “has been a law-abiding member of his community for many years” and ordered that Titus’ license should not be revoked based on the evidence presented by the defendant and witnesses on his behalf, as well as the FCC’s Enforcement Bureau failure to meet the burden of proof necessary for revocation. The FCC has said that The Communications Act of 1934, as amended provides that the Commission may revoke any license if conditions come to its attention that would warrant a denial of the licensee’s original application. In the past, the Commission has said that felony convictions, “especially those involving sexual offenses involving children,” raise questions regarding a licensee’s character qualifications. Sippel’s Initial Decision shall become effective and this proceeding shall be terminated 50 days after its release if exceptions are not filed within 30 days thereafter, unless the Commission elects to review the case on its own motion.

If you’re reading this, you’re no doubt asking yourself, “Why did this have to happen?” The simple truth is that it is complicated and has been coming for a long time. The writing process, started many months ago, was intended to be therapy in the face of the looming realization that there isn’t enough therapy in the world that can fix what is really broken. Needless to say, this rant could fill volumes with example after example if I would let it. I find the process of writing it frustrating, tedious, and probably pointless… especially given my gross inability to gracefully articulate my thoughts in light of the storm raging in my head. Exactly what is therapeutic about that I’m not sure, but desperate times call for desperate measures.

We are all taught as children that without laws there would be no society, only anarchy. Sadly, starting at early ages we in this country have been brainwashed to believe that, in return for our dedication and service, our government stands for justice for all. We are further brainwashed to believe that there is freedom in this place, and that we should be ready to lay our lives down for the noble principals represented by its founding fathers. Remember? One of these was “no taxation without representation”. I have spent the total years of my adulthood unlearning that crap from only a few years of my childhood. These days anyone who really stands up for that principal is promptly labeled a “crackpot”, traitor and worse.

While very few working people would say they haven’t had their fair share of taxes (as can I), in my lifetime I can say with a great degree of certainty that there has never been a politician cast a vote on any matter with the likes of me or my interests in mind. Nor, for that matter, are they the least bit interested in me or anything I have to say.

Why is it that a handful of thugs and plunderers can commit unthinkable atrocities (and in the case of the GM executives, for scores of years) and when it’s time for their gravy train to crash under the weight of their gluttony and overwhelming stupidity, the force of the full federal government has no difficulty coming to their aid within days if not hours? Yet at the same time, the joke we call the American medical system, including the drug and insurance companies, are murdering tens of thousands of people a year and stealing from the corpses and victims they cripple, and this country’s leaders don’t see this as important as bailing out a few of their vile, rich cronies. Yet, the political “representatives” (thieves, liars, and self-serving scumbags is far more accurate) have endless time to sit around for year after year and debate the state of the “terrible health care problem”. It’s clear they see no crisis as long as the dead people don’t get in the way of their corporate profits rolling in.

And justice? You’ve got to be kidding!

How can any rational individual explain that white elephant conundrum in the middle of our tax system and, indeed, our entire legal system? Here we have a system that is, by far, too complicated for the brightest of the master scholars to understand. Yet, it mercilessly “holds accountable” its victims, claiming that they’re responsible for fully complying with laws not even the experts understand. The law “requires” a signature on the bottom of a tax filing; yet no one can say truthfully that they understand what they are signing; if that’s not “duress” than what is. If this is not the measure of a totalitarian regime, nothing is.

How did I get here?

My introduction to the real American nightmare starts back in the early ‘80s. Unfortunately after more than 16 years of school, somewhere along the line I picked up the absurd, pompous notion that I could read and understand plain English. Some friends introduced me to a group of people who were having ‘tax code’ readings and discussions. In particular, zeroed in on a section relating to the wonderful “exemptions” that make institutions like the vulgar, corrupt Catholic Church so incredibly wealthy. We carefully studied the law (with the help of some of the “best”, high-paid, experienced tax lawyers in the business), and then began to do exactly what the “big boys” were doing (except that we weren’t steeling from our congregation or lying to the government about our massive profits in the name of God). We took a great deal of care to make it all visible, following all of the rules, exactly the way the law said it was to be done.

The intent of this exercise and our efforts was to bring about a much-needed re-evaluation of the laws that allow the monsters of organized religion to make such a mockery of people who earn an honest living. However, this is where I learned that there are two “interpretations” for every law; one for the very rich, and one for the rest of us… Oh, and the monsters are the very ones making and enforcing the laws; the inquisition is still alive and well today in this country.

That little lesson in patriotism cost me $40,000+, 10 years of my life, and set my retirement plans back to 0. It made me realize for the first time that I live in a country with an ideology that is based on a total and complete lie. It also made me realize, not only how naive I had been, but also the incredible stupidity of the American public; that they buy, hook, line, and sinker, the crap about their “freedom”… and that they continue to do so with eyes closed in the face of overwhelming evidence and all that keeps happening in front of them.

Before even having to make a shaky recovery from the sting of the first lesson on what justice really means in this country (around 1984 after making my way through engineering school and still another five years of “paying my dues”), I felt I finally had to take a chance of launching my dream of becoming an independent engineer.

On the subjects of engineers and dreams of independence, I should digress somewhat to say that I’m sure that I inherited the fascination for creative problem solving from my father. I realized this at a very young age.

The significance of independence, however, came much later during my early years of college; at the age of 18 or 19 when I was living on my own as student in an apartment in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. My neighbor was an elderly retired woman (80+ seemed ancient to me at that age) who was the widowed wife of a retired steel worker. Her husband had worked all his life in the steel mills of central Pennsylvania with promises from big business and the union that, for his 30 years of service, he would have a pension and medical care to look forward to in his retirement. Instead he was one of the thousands who got nothing because the incompetent mill management and corrupt union (not to mention the government) raided their pension funds and stole their retirement. All she had was social security to live on.

In retrospect, the situation was laughable because here I was living on peanut butter and bread (or Ritz crackers when I could afford to splurge) for months at a time. When I got to know this poor figure and heard her story I felt worse for her plight than for my own (I, after all, I thought I had everything to in front of me). I was genuinely appalled at one point, as we exchanged stories and commiserated with each other over our situations, when she in her grandmotherly fashion tried to convince me that I would be “healthier” eating cat food (like her) rather than trying to get all my substance from peanut butter and bread. I couldn’t quite go there, but the impression was made. I decided that I didn’t trust big business to take care of me, and that I would take responsibility for my own future and myself.

Return to the early ‘80s, and here I was off to a terrifying start as a ‘wet-behind-the-ears’ contract software engineer... and two years later, thanks to the fine backroom, midnight effort by the sleazy executives of Arthur Andersen (the very same folks who later brought us Enron and other such calamities) and an equally sleazy New York Senator (Patrick Moynihan), we saw the passage of 1986 tax reform act with its section 1706.

For you who are unfamiliar, here is the core text of the IRS Section 1706, defining the treatment of workers (such as contract engineers) for tax purposes. Visit this link for a conference committee report ( regarding the intended interpretation of Section 1706 and the relevant parts of Section 530, as amended. For information on how these laws affect technical services workers and their clients, read our discussion here (


(a) IN GENERAL - Section 530 of the Revenue Act of 1978 is amended by adding at the end thereof the following new subsection:

(d) EXCEPTION. - This section shall not apply in the case of an individual who pursuant to an arrangement between the taxpayer and another person, provides services for such other person as an engineer, designer, drafter, computer programmer, systems analyst, or other similarly skilled worker engaged in a similar line of work.

(b) EFFECTIVE DATE. - The amendment made by this section shall apply to remuneration paid and services rendered after December 31, 1986.


· "another person" is the client in the traditional job-shop relationship.

· "taxpayer" is the recruiter, broker, agency, or job shop.

· "individual", "employee", or "worker" is you.

Admittedly, you need to read the treatment to understand what it is saying but it’s not very complicated. The bottom line is that they may as well have put my name right in the text of section (d). Moreover, they could only have been more blunt if they would have came out and directly declared me a criminal and non-citizen slave. Twenty years later, I still can’t believe my eyes.

During 1987, I spent close to $5000 of my ‘pocket change’, and at least 1000 hours of my time writing, printing, and mailing to any senator, congressman, governor, or slug that might listen; none did, and they universally treated me as if I was wasting their time. I spent countless hours on the L.A. freeways driving to meetings and any and all of the disorganized professional groups who were attempting to mount a campaign against this atrocity. This, only to discover that our efforts were being easily derailed by a few moles from the brokers who were just beginning to enjoy the windfall from the new declaration of their “freedom”. Oh, and don’t forget, for all of the time I was spending on this, I was loosing income that I couldn’t bill clients.

After months of struggling it had clearly gotten to be a futile exercise. The best we could get for all of our trouble is a pronouncement from an IRS mouthpiece that they weren’t going to enforce that provision (read harass engineers and scientists). This immediately proved to be a lie, and the mere existence of the regulation began to have its impact on my bottom line; this, of course, was the intended effect.

Again, rewind my retirement plans back to 0 and shift them into idle. If I had any sense, I clearly should have left abandoned engineering and never looked back.

Instead I got busy working 100-hour workweeks. Then came the L.A. depression of the early 1990s. Our leaders decided that they didn’t need the all of those extra Air Force bases they had in Southern California, so they were closed; just like that. The result was economic devastation in the region that rivaled the widely publicized Texas S&L fiasco. However, because the government caused it, no one gave a shit about all of the young families who lost their homes or street after street of boarded up houses abandoned to the wealthy loan companies who received government funds to “shore up” their windfall. Again, I lost my retirement.

Years later, after weathering a divorce and the constant struggle trying to build some momentum with my business, I find myself once again beginning to finally pick up some speed. Then came the .COM bust and the 911 nightmare. Our leaders decided that all aircraft were grounded for what seemed like an eternity; and long after that, ‘special’ facilities like San Francisco were on security alert for months. This made access to my customers prohibitively expensive. Ironically, after what they had done the Government came to the aid of the airlines with billions of our tax dollars … as usual they left me to rot and die while they bailed out their rich, incompetent cronies WITH MY MONEY! After these events, there went my business but not quite yet all of my retirement and savings.

By this time, I’m thinking that it might be good for a change. Bye to California, I’ll try Austin for a while. So I moved, only to find out that this is a place with a highly inflated sense of self-importance and where damn little real engineering work is done. I’ve never experienced such a hard time finding work. The rates are 1/3 of what I was earning before the crash, because pay rates here are fixed by the three or four large companies in the area who are in collusion to drive down prices and wages… and this happens because the justice department is all on the take and doesn’t give a fuck about serving anyone or anything but themselves and their rich buddies.

To survive, I was forced to cannibalize my savings and retirement, the last of which was a small IRA. This came in a year with mammoth expenses and not a single dollar of income. I filed no return that year thinking that because I didn’t have any income there was no need. The sleazy government decided that they disagreed. But they didn’t notify me in time for me to launch a legal objection so when I attempted to get a protest filed with the court I was told I was no longer entitled to due process because the time to file ran out. Bend over for another $10,000 helping of justice.

So now we come to the present. After my experience with the CPA world, following the business crash I swore that I’d never enter another accountant’s office again. But here I am with a new marriage and a boatload of undocumented income, not to mention an expensive new business asset, a piano, which I had no idea how to handle. After considerable thought I decided that it would be irresponsible NOT to get professional help; a very big mistake.

When we received the forms back I was very optimistic that they were in order. I had taken all of the years information to Bill Ross, and he came back with results very similar to what I was expecting. Except that he had neglected to include the contents of Sheryl’s unreported income; $12,700 worth of it. To make matters worse, Ross knew all along this was missing and I didn’t have a clue until he pointed it out in the middle of the audit. By that time it had become brutally evident that he was representing himself and not me.

This left me stuck in the middle of this disaster trying to defend transactions that have no relationship to anything tax-related (at least the tax-related transactions were poorly documented). Things I never knew anything about and things my wife had no clue would ever matter to anyone. The end result is… well, just look around.

I remember reading about the stock market crash before the “great” depression and how there were wealthy bankers and businessmen jumping out of windows when they realized they screwed up and lost everything. Isn’t it ironic how far we’ve come in 60 years in this country that they now know how to fix that little economic problem; they just steal from the middle class (who doesn’t have any say in it, elections are a joke) to cover their asses and it’s “business-as-usual”. Now when the wealthy fuck up, the poor get to die for the mistakes… isn’t that a clever, tidy solution.

As government agencies go, the FAA is often justifiably referred to as a tombstone agency, though they are hardly alone. The recent presidential puppet GW Bush and his cronies in their eight years certainly reinforced for all of us that this criticism rings equally true for all of the government. Nothing changes unless there is a body count (unless it is in the interest of the wealthy sows at the government trough). In a government full of hypocrites from top to bottom, life is as cheap as their lies and their self-serving laws.

I know I’m hardly the first one to decide I have had all I can stand. It has always been a myth that people have stopped dying for their freedom in this country, and it isn’t limited to the blacks, and poor immigrants. I know there have been countless before me and there are sure to be as many after. But I also know that by not adding my body to the count, I insure nothing will change. I choose to not keep looking over my shoulder at “big brother” while he strips my carcass, I choose not to ignore what is going on all around me, I choose not to pretend that business as usual won’t continue; I have just had enough.

I can only hope that the numbers quickly get too big to be white washed and ignored that the American zombies wake up and revolt; it will take nothing less. I would only hope that by striking a nerve that stimulates the inevitable double standard, knee-jerk government reaction that results in more stupid draconian restrictions people wake up and begin to see the pompous political thugs and their mindless minions for what they are. Sadly, though I spent my entire life trying to believe it wasn’t so, but violence not only is the answer, it is the only answer. The cruel joke is that the really big chunks of shit at the top have known this all along and have been laughing, at and using this awareness against, fools like me all along.

I saw it written once that the definition of insanity is repeating the same process over and over and expecting the outcome to suddenly be different. I am finally ready to stop this insanity. Well, Mr. Big Brother IRS man, let’s try something different; take my pound of flesh and sleep well.

The capitalist creed: From each according to his gullibility, to each according to his greed.

l;astest from nimbusters

The whole crew is twisted. Anybody who would go to such lengths as creating websites and spending every waking hour blogging against each other needs to do a self check

and who is doing this a coward or 3 determnied to controlthe behavoir of others

. This site does say "Serving the mentally ill since 2002". Yeah, Mork and Toad,

and you deccan't even spell either of our names corectly

I am including you two in this post. You both can practice your right to free speech all you want. It is going to come to a point to where nobody listens to what you say.

possible but unlikely

What good is your free speech if nobody wants to listen to you.

ask Mike crow and the late jesswald

This whole Soap Opera used to be entertaining to read about on the net and listen to on HF. Now it's just stupid. And in the infamous words of Dan... "You cain't fix stupid". I'm sure you will fire something back at this post and I could care less. Mark, the reason people banter you is :

banter me? how about Badger me as they have without let up for 12 years

1. You are gullible


2. You have a lifestyle most people don't agree with and you post it in plain sight for people to see.

not realy but I do refuse to leave the net because you have trouble accepting reality

the reality is most folks don't care who I sleep with

3. You don't know when to let it go. It seems it is you against the masses.

short of taking up serial murder as a hobby just how do you propose for me to let it go while being called a pedo constantly?

If you want to continue to attack windmills, go for it. Just don't whine about it.

I am not attacking anyone just defending myself by the tool at hand

Todd, you need to learn about pecking order... Just because you were first on a frequency doesn't mean you'll keep it. It happens all the time. You went ballistic and these guys feed on that. Your anime fetish isn't very well accepted either. There are OO's out there listening. If you start firing off a tirade of filthy language, you are just as much the problem as the other guys. Be the bigger man and turn the VFO. Practice your free speech to make difference for this world. Don't do it just to create noise and make a point. Likewise, I think you have some emotional/mental issues also.

are you LS?

Of all the years I have been a ham, I have only had a problem with one of the players in the 14.275 He just accused us of splattering. It wasn't worth the fight , so we QSY'd out of that area and I haven't had a problem since. saga. It was 'ol Mikey and I was in his .270-.280 window . What is it about that 10khz spectrum of 20 meters that draws the misfits to it? I hate the broadcasts of K1MAN but at least it has been quiet there. I haven't heard Karol, Mikey, Tom or any of the crew since K1MAN got back on and is being monitored heavily. I guess the misfits are scared that they will get caught in their antics. Laura may have contacted them and told them to cut it out. Lots of things could be speculated... There are plenty of frequencies/bands to use. Frankly, I like 17 meters and 6 meter SSB. I do chase some DX on 20 and even work some DX on 75/80 meters. Remember, Amateur Radio is a hobby. There will be disagreements and bullies in all aspects of your life. I learned something through trial and error a long time ago. Don't meet force with force. You can use someone else's force to work to your advantage if you'll just use your head. Given enough rope, they'll hang themselves. This is probably my last post to this board. After your anger or whatever you feel about this post wears off, take a look at yourselves and what has been going on. Is it really worth the effort?

ask the six million of that isn rigt you can't they are dead

Stevie esp (with help from dan and dave) argue that it is chil abuse to
teach that lying is ever a good idea

Is it? consider this Stevie Dave dan whiny and other all spend a great
deal of time on the "issue" that I am bisexaul, something I try not to
bring up but frankly it isn't possible to not deal with around here.

It is said that roughly 10 percent of amercians are BLGT that is number
of more than 20 million people., and yet for if they are honest they
are suggejected to the relentless attacks of people like Stevie.
therefore a good case can be made that lying is a better idea than

Indeed despite the fact I don't deny being bisexual Stevie says
everything I say is a lie or words to that effect. Stevie and MD went
looking for this years ago I gareed with them and said (and continue to
say it has nothing to do with ham radio) but 7 years later Stevie still
hammers at this issue BTW I have perhaps found an issue in Ham radio
where it has some bearing I don't see the gender of conectors in the
same way as the rest of you, not a major one but it came up this week,
thanks to someone signing their email "k4yz" sending email to many ham
in the area presumibly to inusre everyone knows this "vital fact" about
me, forunately for me who ever (and it may or may not be Stevie making
these mails which I have not seen with there header in place, Stevie
may be the victum of someone else here trying to provoke further
"entertainment" by signing stevie name) laced the mail without enough
over the top to be largely dismised

but back to the subject more than 50 percent of my children will bi or
gay according to studies. I know that fact. therefore for several
reason I will teach my children to lie.

reason One should they turn out to be bi or gay it will help to ensure
there safety from Stevie or people likely whinny

reason two plenty of sex feinds pray on children lying as they will be
taught that about everything they say to strangers online, about
themselves, should be a lie, will help keep them safe

I am called paranoid for such views. Indeed I even understand the
thought that goes into that charge. OTOH I have experenced for myself
the price to be paid for being honest about such things, both personaly
and on the bodies of others.

Why do I lie stevie? becuase folks like you and whinny and other taught
me that it wasn't safe to tell the truth.

You want to stop me and other from teach the next generation to lie,
try working for a world where being honest isn't flat out unsafe. Have
you seen the stat on suicides in Gay youths. you should know something
of them as a nurse. you nor I can create a wrold where lying isn't the
profitable way of doing things. It should be possible to create a world
where telling the turth isn't ever dangerous.

I realy don't mind the fact you don't like me even if the sole reason
were my sexual orientation. I support that as your right (which is why
I not amoug the left wingers that bascialywant to make disliking gays
crime) hat can never support support is the branding you practice.

it is a fact in this nation today that if you stand up and say so and
so is gay you endanger there there safety and even their life. I truely
wish the preceeding statement were a lie, nothing on earth would make
me happier

i'll be gone a couple of days having married a practicing Jew we will
be off to visit a larger temple for Yom Kippur so i will not be around
a few days

think about what I have written if you able look at your posts and
daves and esp whinnyslit, and ask yourself why it is dangerous in
america to honest about a subject that should be nobodies bussness who
another person sleeps with

I expect that i will come back and find your normal venon in reply, but
maybe you will choose to disapoint me

Amateur Radio volunteers in Jasper County, Texas, continue to support
mass-feeding operations by The Salvation Army, which has been coordinating
with other relief groups to provide meals to Hurricane Rita-displaced
residents. Amateur volunteers plan to meet with Salvation Army personnel to
discuss the need for Amateur Radio support beyond this weekend. Meanwhile,
ARRL Alabama SM Greg Sarratt, W4OZK--who's been handling the intake of
American Red Cross volunteers in Montgomery, Alabama--has been visiting ARC
shelters along the Mississippi Gulf Coast. Shelters there are in the process
of closing down. In Gulfport, Amateur Radio volunteers continue to support
communication for the emergency operations center (EOC) in Harrison County,
where they've been a mainstay since Hurricane Katrina struck in late August.

"If it hadn't been for Amateur Radio operators, we would not have had
communications with other agencies," said Col Joe Spraggins of the Harrison
County Emergency Management Agency. "Even with the advancements in our radio
technology, ham radio saved the day! Thank you."

Christy Hardin, KB7BSA, a Southern Baptist Disaster Relief volunteer from
Alabama, and husband Rick, KB4BSA, have been in the Gulf Coast twice
following Hurricane Katrina. She had nothing but praise for those who have
been volunteering to maintain communication at the EOC 24/7 in some cases
despite having lost their own homes to the storm. "The four or five
operators who worked around the clock for nearly a month are the true
heroes," she said.

In particular, she cited ARES District Emergency Coordinator Tom Hammack,
W4WLF, Ray Taber, WX5AAA, Glover Hayden, W5BLV, and John Moore, W5EG, for
serving unselfishly on behalf of Mississippi Gulf Coast residents. Hammack
has been living in the EOC since the storm flooded and badly damaged his
house. An instructor for all three levels of the ARRL Amateur Radio
Emergency Communications course, Hardin says she was "thrilled to see it in
action" as the EOC volunteers performed as true professionals.

South Texas ARRL Section Manager Ray Taylor, N5NAV, this week estimated
upward of 60 Amateur Radio volunteers were on the ground in Texas, many
supporting shelters scattered throughout the area. North Texas SEC Bill
Swan, K5MWC, has been helping to recruit and schedule ARES members from his
section to assist in mass-care operations in Jasper County.

Taylor says radio amateurs in North Texas and Arkansas have been helping to
cover net control shifts and to serve as relay stations for the West Gulf
ARES Emergency Net on 7.285 MHz days/3.873 MHz evenings.

Scott Pederson, KI5DR, reports he just returned home from three days in
Jasper County, Texas, working with John Wagner, WA5VBP, Charles Fletcher,
N5BOY, and John Barber, N5JB. "Our job was to deliver hot meals to various
locations around a three-county area with five Salvation Army trucks and
also several Red Cross trucks working together," he said. Ham radio, he
explained, helped to coordinate the delivery routes by the various agencies
involved. While VHF FM simplex was okay for local work, the West Gulf ARES
Emergency Net on HF was very reliable.

"Even though regular phones are working most of the time, it's really the
hams that are the communicators of the group," he said. Pederson also lauded
the efforts of The Salvation Army, American Red Cross and Arkansas Methodist
Men's volunteers. "Everyone is focused and cares deeply about their tasks,"
he said, "and things are happening at lightning speed throughout the day."

In Louisiana, SEC Gary Stratton, K5GLS, said earlier this week that some 45
Amateur Radio volunteers remained on hurricane recovery duty there. "Things
are settling down," Stratton told ARRL.--Christy Hardin, KB7BSA, supplied
information for this article.

. . . unbelievable . . !!
