THE TRUTH ABOUT HAVING TO CHANGE OUT-OF-STATE DRIVERS LICENSES & LICENSE TAGS TO FLORIDA ONES ......
by
Terry Richards,
Managing Editor

    It appears that many newcomers to Florida may be changing out-of-state drivers licenses and license plates to Florida ones before it is actually required under Florida law, because police and other government agencies are intimidating these newcomers before they have even decided to establish a DOMICILE in this state.

     Simply put, DOMICILE is the key word here.   You can set up residence in an apartment, house, motel, hotel or campground for a week, a month or a year whether you work or not and you will not be establishing DOMICILE in Florida by doing so.  You may have to pay local or state taxes directly or indirectly through rent or mortgage payments, but it is not necessary to declare that Residence as your DOMICILE until and unless you plan on making Florida YOUR PREDOMINANT AND PRINCIPAL HOME and that you INTEND TO CONTINUE IT AS SUCH. 

According to FLORIDA STATUTES 222.17 you are considered a NON-RESIDENT if you DO NOT DECLARE FLORIDA AS YOUR DOMICILE AND YOU DESIRE TO MAINTAIN OR CONTINUE YOUR DOMICILE IN ANOTHER STATE OTHER THAN FLORIDA.  Your reasons for wanting to declare DOMICILE in another state can be for personal or business ones.   Furthermore, this Statute goes on to say that even if you perform acts within the State of Florida such as accepting employment, or renting an apartment or buying a house which might be taken to indicate that YOU ARE or may intend to be or become DOMICILED in the State of Florida, AS LONG AS YOU WISH TO PERMANENTLY CONTINUE OR MAINTAIN YOUR DOMICILE IN ANOTHER STATE YOU MAY DO SO....

Pursuant to FLORIDA STATUTES 320.37 REGISTRATION OF A MOTOR VEHICLE DOES NOT APPLY TO NON-RESIDENTS OF FLORIDA. 

The people in Florida want to promote Tourism by business and other visitors who want to come here for the fun, sun and beaches....Those who come here spend money and pay sales taxes while they are here....Law Enforcement Officers and other Government Agencies should STOP INTIMIDATING NEWCOMERS TO FLORIDA to change their out-of-State Drivers Licenses and License Tags until and unless these Newcomers decide to declare DOMICILE in the State of Florida.  The State of Florida should keep in mind what happened when people were charged an "Impact Fee" on motor vehicles....NOW Florida has to PAY BACK ALL THOSE FEES COLLECTED because the "Impact Fee" was declared UNLAWFUL OR UNCONSTITUTIONAL.

HOW MANY PEOPLE STILL LAWFULLY DOMICILED IN ANOTHER STATE WILL THE STATE OF FLORIDA HAVE TO PAY BACK WHEN THEY FIND OUT THAT THEY WERE UNLAWFULLY HASTENED TO CHANGE THEIR DRIVERS LICENSES OR LICENSE TAGS BY INTIMIDATION OR BECAUSE THEY WERE NOT TOLD THE COMPLETE TRUTH BY LAW ENFORCEMENT OR GOVERNMENT AGENCIES....???

EDITORIAL SURVEY....!!!!

SURVEY QUESTION:  SHOULD THERE BE A CONSTITUTIONAL AMENDMENT PASSED MAKING UNLAWFUL THE BURNING OF THE AMERICAN FLAG....????   ________________(before answering this question, please read the guidelines listed below):

1.  It has been said that in a Democratic society such as ours, "you either have a free country or you don't" - you can't have it both ways....In other words, you can't allow some people to have Freedom Of Speech and disallow others....

2.  It has been said that the passing of an amendment to ban the burning of the American Flag would violate the First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution which states that "Congress shall make no laws abridging the Freedom of Speech.  Abridge means to shorten or make less than what already exists.   Therefore, the passing of such an amendment would "abridge" the Freedom of Speech and thereby violate the First Amendment....

3.  It has also been said that the passing of such an amendment would open the doors to Congress and other Lawmakers to "abridge" further our Freedom of Speech, of Religion, and of The Press....

4.  A Supreme Court Ruling and Interpretation several decades ago stated that our Freedoms and Rights end when we "infringe" on other peoples Freedoms or Rights, such as "yelling fire" in a movie theatre when there really is "no fire" and inciting a panic which results in people being trampled upon, injured or killed....You'll have a difficult time claiming "Freedom of Speech here as a defense to criminal prosecution.  However, it has also been said that as long as a person did not come.

*Please return to the survey question now and answer it if you wish....You can respond by E-mail, FAX or regular U.S. Mail.  The results of the Survey will be made public on Veteran's Day, November 11, 1998.

*We would also like to hear your own individual comments of why you are either "FOR" or "AGAINST" this Amendment.  All Comments are welcome, and we will publish as many as possible....

IS MA' BELL SNITCHING ON YOU....??
"unlisted phone numbers & addresses for sale"

by
Terry Richards,
Managing Editor

Just when you thought your "unlisted phone number and address were one of the few things left that would be kept "sacred" and "confidential" by your "trusted" (??) local phone company or long distance carrier, our close inside sources say differently....!!!!

Simply put, all a person has to do is hire a Private Investigation Service and tell them they need to find out the unlisted phone number and/or address of a particular person, and in most cases they will be able to find out that information for them that same day or within a few days....

I'm sure by now you're asking yourself how can they do that....??   Actually, it's quite simple....Simple for them that is....!

Most Private Investigative Services have "inside sources" at the various local and long distance carriers who for a "fee" ranging from about $ 50.00 to $100.00 will disclose this information to these "private eyes"....

If they already have the persons address but not the "unlisted phone number",   then "the source" at the local or long distance carrier will punch up the address on their computer which will then reveal your "unlisted phone number".   So even if the person you're looking for only lives at the address but the phone is in someone else's name, the Private Investigative Service will still be able to find out the "unlisted" phone number" for their "new client".

Of course the reverse is also true....!!  If "the client" has the "unlisted phone number" but not the "unlisted address", then "the source" will punch up the "unlisted phone number" in their computer which will then reveal the "unlisted address". 

If the "new client" does not have any information as to the location of the person they are trying to find,  it does make it more difficult for the Investigative Service to find out this information  but not impossible....!!!!  The Investigative Service need only use a method called "skip Tracing" to locate where their client's party may be currently residing or working....This method has about a 50% or better success rate.  And once they locate where that party is residing, or find out their "unlisted phone number through talking to co-workers or neighbors,   they can go to "the source" at the local or long distance carrier to find out the rest of the information they need.....

Investigative Services will charge you an average of $300 to $600 or more for providing you with all this information.

Based on the information we had from "our sources", we thought that it might only be supervisors or managers at the various local and long distance carriers that had access to this information.  However, we surveyed several "customer service representatives" of several local and long distance carriers who claimed they were neither supervisors or managers but had access to "unlisted phone numbers and addresses" on their computers....

What does all this mean to you if you have an "unlisted phone number and address"....??  It means that your ex-spouse, ex-lover, or someone who may be "stalking" you, or anyone else who you don't want to know your "unlisted phone number and address" can find out this information anyway....!!

So much for all those "privacy acts" legislated by our Federal and State Governments over the last  3 decades or so....??  Laws don't mean anything if they're not enforced....!!!!
