Amendments to the Constitution of the United States of America To Preserve and Protect the Rights of the Common Citizenry and, put an end to Conflicts of Interest from within our Congress and our Legislative bodies of our Government, and to Protect the American Public.
We the Undersigned Citizens of the United States of America in order to preserve the Rights granted to us by our Constitution and the Bill of Rights believe that the following Issues must be addressed, and changed Respectively as additions and Amendments to Our United States Constitution.
[Amendments 28 - 38 Respectively]
Issue 1. Bill Riders,and unethical changes to Bills that are passed.
By allowing Laws to be included and Passed by piggy-backing them onto an approved Bill is unethical, and fraudulent, and shall no longer be Allowed under this Constitutional Amendment. Clear, concise wording shall be required on all documentation, so as not to be misleading in the purposes of the Bills to the Citizens of the United States. Misleading the Citizens by use of any Media will be considered and handled as Fraud, including but not limited to Notations on Bills that have passed stating to ignore any or part of said Bill added by any President. All Bills shall be taken as they are written, and passed. No signing statements shall be upheld.
[a signing statement is a presidential footnote attached to a law passed by Congress. It instructs the executive branch on how to interpret the law, essentially giving the president line-item veto power to cherry-pick provisions of law to be followed or ignored,]
All Bills shall be required to have approval of the American Voters, whether they are in the United States, or Overseas by means of a Unified Vote by and of the Citizens of the United States of America to be held every 2 years and/or on an as needed basis. This is not limited to States, and applies to all Legislative bodies. All future Laws will require a vote, with All the facts on the proposed law made evident to the American Public in straight language that can be fully understood. Congressional 'Earmarks' shall be allotted at the 'Will' of the American people with a vote, and full disclosure of the facts including, but not limited to the Person or Persons requesting the funding. No misleading jargon will be allowed, any fraudulent attempts to mislead the U. S. Citizens on any proposed Law and/or Earmark will become a Felony and Shall be punished as such. Full disclosure of all the facts pertaining to any and all proposed laws and/or Earmarks will be mandatory.
Congress shall vote for, and enact the Laws of the Popular votes of their districts, without personal bias, or change, that is not first approved by the American People.
The Popular Vote for Presidential Candidates will be the deciding/winning vote.
Issue 2. Our Right to Privacy as it pertains to our Homes, and yards, Common Usage and Undue Hardships
State Laws shall abide by the Constitution. Our Right to the Privacy will not be breached. State Agents in their performance of their duties, and Inspectors are to knock and/or ring the doorbell prior to all Inspections to the Premises, and have direct contact with the Person or Persons who are Legally Responsible for giving permission to Inspect, and Serve Written Notice Notarized by the Neighbor/Complainant. It is not the job of the Inspector to file a Notice of Grievance, but that of the person or persons with the actual grievance. Anonymous tips in Civil Inspection cases are hereby considered hearsay, and shall no longer be used as a tool for harassment. Only the Complaint listed shall be investigated in all cases, and unless there is an immediate danger to life or limb, any others shall only be means for warning with the reasons for that particular code stated, and not acted upon. All Common usage of our Carports, Driveways, Patios, and Storage, and any other portion thereof shall not constitute a code Violation in itself, and only enacted on if there is Immediate Threat to life or limb.
Example: Working on a personal vehicle in itself is not a Violation as it is Common Usage throughout America, but Storage of the Gasoline in a Hazardous way can be, and failure to use caution when dealing with Hazardous materials can lead to fines, and/or Negligence Charges if an Injury occurs due to this negligence.
A Privacy Hedge and/or Fence shall be respected as such and shall not be breached, trespassed against, entered, or disregarded in the case of an Inspection, or for any means other than as deemed appropriate in a Criminal Investigation without the consent of all parties involved. This includes Protecting the Right to Privacy expected by a Celebrated figure on their Properties or that of others. A Photo taken over a 'Fence' and/or 'Privacy Hedge' will be considered as "Prima Facie" Evidence of Trespassing. This will be treated as a 'Blanket Rule.' It covers everybody.
Our Right to face our Accuser shall be upheld in all Civil matters especially as it pertains to our Homes and the upkeep thereof, by means of a Notarized Notice of Grievance served in person to an Owner/Occupant by an Authorized Agent and/or Inspector. Undue Hardship is clarified in this Issue to Protect the Rights of the Citizens of the United States from injurious behavior of an Agent/Inspector.
A Citizen of the United States must comply with the Notice of Grievance within 25 days, or make it be known to the Inspector within the 25 days that they are going to file for an Undue Hardship. An Undue Hardship must be filed within 45 days of the Notice of Grievance. All Documentation/Evidence and/or Proof should be filed with the Undue Hardship by the end of 60 days.
Exemption shall be given in cases of 'Extreme Hardship' with Evidence proving the need and a 'Cease and Desist' Order filed by the 'Inspection Services' against the City, Municipality, Township, and or State with Evidence proving the 'Cause' for this Order until determination can be made in the form of an 'Appeal' with the Board of Adjustment and/or Zoning Commission.
Mental, Physical, Economical, and Emotional factors of the Accused Violator shall be used to determine eligibility, and to determine whether assistance is needed.
[Assistance can be provided by the Courts as an alternative to jail time for Petty Offenses particularly Traffic Offenses, as long as there is no abuse, history of Abuse and/or theft or history of theft involved in the Offense]
Fines may be assessed after 45 days of non-compliance if neither of these conditions are met.
Legal Documentation must be provided in all cases to prove the need for an exemption due to Undue Hardship unless it is deemed to be Weather related.
Example of Weather Related Pulling weeds from a sidewalk, mowing a West facing lawn, etc... in 80 degrees can lead to Heat Stroke and Death, especially for an Elderly person.
Common Sense Practices shall be utilized to ensure the Safety and Well being of the United States Citizens. The Building Codes were implemented to Protect our Citizens from loss of Life or limb, and from harming Ourselves and/or Others so it therefore should not be misused in such a way as to be injurious.
City/Neighborhood Code Inspectors shall Investigate and inspect our Government buildings and Roadways for code compliance and safety, and brought up to code if they are outdated, not in compliance, or unsafe. Safety Issues shall come first.
Examples are endless: The Highways, Bridges, or any other Government type Structures should not collapse, or be in disrepair. Firehouses and other Government Buildings should be equipped with Smoke Alarms, etc... School buses should be equipped with seat belts.
Issue 3. The Electoral College
We do not believe that this outdated system of counting Votes has proved useful to the American people. We are no longer just the original Territories and have expanded into States that should be respected, and counted as separate entities, and tallied thusly. All Votes shall be counted with the Popular Vote being the Elected Vote. This is the Will of the Citizens of the United States of America.
Issue 4. Conflict of Interest
Favoritism when enacting laws for Corporations will not be allowed. It is Unethical and inappropriate. Corporations, lobbyists, etc... will no longer be allowed to sway the votes of our Congress with the use of Gifts, Gratuities, Trips or any other means of bribery, including but not limited to Scholarships, Jobs, or other special handling of Relatives of our U. S. Representatives. Representatives meaning anyone that helps to make our Laws. This does not apply to the Janitor, as an example unless the Janitor has a direct Marital, Biological, or personal friendship link to our Lawmakers. This pertains to all of the people in Power in our Government, including the Lawmakers of each State. Kickbacks are Prohibited, and can be Prosecuted as Unlawful Enrichment, Fraud, or any other Crime as deemed appropriate and pertaining to it on a Case by Case basis.

This Pertains to the people in Power, not the clerks, etc... unless there is a direct Marital, Biological, or personal friendship link to our Lawmakers. Raises deemed unsuitable for these, and any Government Employees shall be reviewed with all the facts made Public, for scrutiny and possible vote if it's deemed appropriate by the People of each State Respectively and the United States as a Whole as it pertains to the Citizens.

From this day forward the Health, financially or otherwise of the United States Citizens will come first and foremost. There will be no more Foreign Aid in the terms of Monetary gains acceptable unless it is the Will of the People of the United States. At times of Crisis in the United States all monies will be used to Aid the U.S. Citizens first.
Issue 8. Supreme Court Judges
The Law of the Land is not the Supreme Court Judges, but rests with the United States Constitution, Bill of Rights, and the Will of the U.S. Citizens collectively. No Judge shall uphold a Law or Statute that does not conform to our Constitution, or Bill of Rights against a U. S. Citizen whether it be localized by a State, or by Federal Decree. No Statute or Law can be designed to take away the Rights that are given to us in the Constitution or the Bill of Rights. Any Judge who subordinates the Rights of U. S.

Citizens shall have the Right to Amend the Constitution by means of a Petition and a Vote of the People with the Majority of votes determining the outcome of the Proposed Amendment.
My story takes place in a back yard Garden. Beautiful flowers and lush vegetation hide within them the wonderful World of Insects. As we begin the story we meet Bob and Yo, Earthworms working hard to keep the gardens fertile for the growing plants. This story helps to teach Children that even though they are small they have their own strengths and can still do some things on their own as long as they have Faith in themselves and don’t give up on themselves. By using the weakest Characters in the Garden I strive to teach the Children to have faith in themselves in a somewhat subtle manner. I’ve incorporated other bugs in the Gardens to show differences that should be accepted in our Society. The slugs are known to have a bad Reputation, but as the main Characters meet and get to know them, they find themselves warming up to them and becoming their friends. All the bugs become as equal partners, each doing their parts, during the Crisis of the great flood. Working together creates a bond between the many different types of Insects in the story, as they use their resources to get through the catastrophes that confront them. Casandra, a Gypsy moth tells an unforgettable Tale of Romance and Intrigue as the stranded Insects await the arrival of the Dragonflies, and their ride home. The subtle teaching enhances the story plot and the Characters gain courage, as well as knowledge and insight from each other and the difficulties that are occurring around them. ‘Bugs Lives’ and The Rainy Night In The Gardens’ deals with many of today’s Issue that are confronting our Children as no other book can.
Disaster strikes in the hearts and homes of these hapless bugs, but the main Bugs as well as many of the others learn many Life lessons, and never give up on each other or themselves. Cooperation becomes the key to survival. Courage,Character,Faith, working together, helping each other, and accepting the others for their differences are but a few. Making friends and believing in themselves are only a few of the steps taken by these Characters to make their Dreams come true, and begin on the Journey we call life, to build a better future by following their Dreams to reach their Destiny.
'Bugs Lives' and The Rainy Night in The Gardens Chapter ~ 1 ~ Life In The Gardens
I was born in a town back east that no longer exists, it burned to the ground before I came out west at the age of 1 year. I have been writing since I was a teen, mostly poetry, short stories, and Newspaper Articles for the School Paper when I was a teen. I have always been around Children, and I love to teach them by using my words. They are our future. Teaching them lessons the easy way through e books, or Audio has been a 'Dream come True' for me. A local ECE Class has two of my books. Sluggy Slug, and Tammy Turtle teach about shyness and not to bully. These are two of the Major stumbling blocks that kids have to deal with at the onset of School. Short books made specifically for their short attention span, they come in handy as Bedtime stories that teach life lessons. All of my books are designed to teach."
As a Parent I have many concerns about the World around me and my Children. Global Warming, smog, and the overuse of our Landfills has encouraged me to grow trees for the Environment. I grow them from seeds and cuttings so as to preserve their integrity for the Honey Bees and other Pollinators. I do not believe that Hybrid Plants are doing right by them. I grow various types of Fruit Trees, and I would like to be able to buy land to start Orchards, and possibly someday to help with the Homeless, and help feed the Hungry. I believe that Charity does begin at home, and I see it as sharing the Wealth, not a handout. A lot of very good people have found themselves in need and too ashamed because of the Societal Stigma to get the help that they so desperately need. I have been one of these people and I have learned compassion and empathy because of this. Our Children go to School to learn, but fear of bullies and unfair treatment from others can inhibit their learning. I believe that with Early Childhood Learning we need to be teaching lessons to stop the kinds of behavior that lead to the current atrocities that are becoming all too common in our Schools. I am a Dreamer, and I would like to change the World. The Future of our Children is in our hands, and it is up to all of us to teach them to be responsible, productive members of Society. Working together we can all accomplish this and be blessed by the fruits of our labors.
About my e-books:
Children's Learning E-books on Life Lessons is my passion. I am going International with translations of my e-books. Visit my Bookstore @:
Free download ABC's and 123's to teach kids to write the American English Alphabet and numbers. Located at my bookstore.
Teaching Children their ABC's comes natural to Parents, and Teachers, but what about Life Lessons?
We all want our Children to overcome shyness, and we try to teach them that bullying is wrong. My e-books get right to the point, and can instill Values that last a lifetime. Teaching them instead of letting them go through life learning the hard way is my goal. These stories are easy to memorize, even for pre-kindergarten children.
Staying young by writing for Children is the only way to be. I use Characters that the kids can relate to, and keep their attention from word one. The local ECE Class has a copy of my first two stories. All of them dealing with Issues that they can relate to.
I have a twelve Chapter e book called, 'Bugs Lives' and The Rainy Night in The Gardens. Chapter one of my e book is free. The full book is approximately two hundred pages of enjoyment. Almost like twelve books to a mini series."
Thank you for visiting. Respectfully and sincerely, D. K. Carpenter
