American land surveying has a dilemma; it’s called the “pincushion corner.” This is a name used to describe the phenomena of multiple boundary monuments being set by land surveyors... More > when only one boundary corner exists under the law. The pincushion has not gone unnoticed by the legal profession and the general public. It is now common knowledge that no two surveyors can agree on the location of any given property corner. The pincushion is physical proof of that notion. Not only is the pincushion becoming a public relations disaster for the profession, it is causing those who might otherwise consider commissioning a survey to decide otherwise. And herein lies the dilemma; no one wants to hire the surveyor because of the way surveying is practiced, the pincushion being emblematic of that practice. This book explores the effect of the pincushion, how the phenomena started, why it exists, and remedies to end the practices that allow the pincushion corner to not only exist, but to flourish.< Less

Why is it so many people find their government discomforting, or in the extreme case, revolting? Well, actually, most people don’t think much about it, except when they get smacked in the face... More > with something they don’t understand. But those who do, all have their own reasons. The point is though, what are we going to do about it? The Declaration of Independence has an answer.

One way to understand this concept is to ask yourself: Why can’t 13 year old children vote? When you provide yourself with a satisfactory answer then you understand why the Founding Fathers constructed the Constitution the way it is, and why also it is being violated by the Federal Government—and has been for 60 years, albeit off and on.
