Our mission is to enhance and improve the ability of the Citizens of our world to communicate online. We have all experienced how the internet is changing our lives and it will surely continue to do so. We are going to attempt to set up a more advanced system where both quality and quantity of participation by authors exists. We want to promote individual and social benefits yet we want to be financially rewarded for our work. The financial side is easy. There are basic fixed costs and then you have the revenue. Authors will receive a percentage of the net income the site generates, based on the contributions of the author and various results such as votes upward and downward and what they obtain from the number of readers and comments posted. The specifics will be determined as the site unfolds and is enhanced. So who, what, where, when, why and how much is still not yet determined or set in stone. I hope to be able to incorporate everyone’s opinions on the matter and vote democratically on it. I like the 2/3s plurality as the necessary percentage to create the rules and bylaws for the site. So, if you have 24 authors on the site, at least 16 would have to agree to enact or alter anything. There have been some really good studies on this and the higher the plurality the better the results, depending on the number of participants.
If you want to see normal headline news, go somewhere else. There are plenty of superficial lamestream media sites and articles, many faux, if you haven’t figured it out yet, on just about anything you are interested in. If you want to write something informative or forward someone else’s informative articles, go to BTH Blog on the top header and help spread the truth. You must register to post articles and such. I do not like the use of logical fallacies but I do understand what is and what isn’t a logical fallacy is also debated. We do not sell or disclose anyone’s email address or personal information and that policy will never change.

I have made a link to my book, The Achilles Heel; the IRS Notice of Federal Tax Lien because it still needs fact checking, not on the facts presented, but on the conclusion the facts appear to suggest. Because of its controversy and the IRS and Justice Departments propensity to retaliate against those who have and continue to push back against them, many scholars are unwilling to participate in such as task. The legal system has become more political than legal and they, BAR members, are an extremely powerful group.
