Juris precepta sunt haec: honeste vivere, alterum non laedere, suum cuique
."[These are the precepts of Law: To live honorably, to hurt no one, to render everyone their due.]Dedicated to the original Frog Farmer of Garbanzo BBS: "somewhere in California"Disclaimer: This only works in America, and sometimes not even then.
The purpose of the Frog Farm is to discuss issues which involve a Free People and their PublicServants, and how to deal with the various problems that can arise between a free person who exercisesand demands Rights and errant public servants who exceed the scope of their powers. Topics coveredinclude the rights of Man and subsequent obligations, the nature of the contract for government, theFederal U.S. Constitution and State Constitutions of the united States, various types of Jurisdiction,and defending rights in the courtrooms of America.The Frog Farm's FAQ is unique in that the majority of the information is in the form of legal citationstaken from courts of the fifty States and the federal Supreme Court (and thus the only authoritativesource regarding the subject matter). The Supreme Court and the lesser appellate courts haverepeatedly ruled on many points, and these are rightfully described as "well settled". Unfortunately,most of the time this established law goes unused out of fear or ignorance. While it can be argued thata system of multiple privately produced legal systems would better protect individual freedom (anddiscussion of this sort is most certainly welcome in these forums), as long as the current system is inplace it should be used. Violence accomplishes nothing but destruction; it has no place in a civilizedsociety. Criminals everywhere throughout history have engaged in violent behavior against those whowish to live in peace, whether or not they attempt to rationalize and justify their crimes by assuming acloak of legitimacy with the lofty title of "government". The use of violence is only proper in self-defense, and violence should always be kept to a minimum.The Frog Farm is a clearinghouse for all information regarding defending one's rights in thecourtrooms of America. With the recent expansions of the Internet's size and scope, and the millionsof participants now discovering its vast, untapped potential which is even now struggling to throw off the last vestiges of its governmental umbilical cords, it is hoped that this information will find anappreciative audience.
