"Inhabitants of the Municipality" ARISE!

This is a link to a current discussion on As Maine Goes about the MRRA, which represents the current "sate of the  art" of the power of government that the legislature granted unto itself when they chartered The Maine Development Foundation - a non-profit corporation assigned with the elite privilege and authority  of managing the economy of the entire state.

added later This is a link to another discussion about the MRRA on As Maine Goes


This was an unconstitutional grab of power by the state government and once having transcended their oaths to that dusty old piece of paper that represents the will of the people of this state- other wise known as the Maine State Constitution- they certainly had no cause to get the consent of the governed as they instituted the process of fundamentally transforming the State of Maine into a corporation that controls the means of production through it's multifarious funds found throughout Maine State Inc's corporate network.

The meaningful and equivalent language for these funds is "capital", the accumulation and concentration of capital in the hands of Maine State Inc, which then redistributes the accumulated capital to its "targeted sector" and lets the "un-targeted sector" foot the bill all in the name of the "public benefit" as defined by the Lords of our Legislature, who with the crowning triumph of the statute chartering the Maine Development Foundation have established that statutory law supersedes the Maine State Constitution ( representing the will of the people if not "the public benefit" as so deemed by our elected nobility class - here to fore to be known as The Lords of the Legislature)

The primary newest insight in the As Maine Goes thread is that when the federal government  transferred the land of the Brunswick Navel Air Station to Maine State Inc, the towns from which the land was originally taken could have presented their own proposals. I have no idea if the towns ever organized themselves enough to compete with the behemoth Maine State Inc- which I liken to the Muslim Brotherhood in the organizational strength and their concentrated capitalization. Maine State Inc is an unconstitutional corporate state which has grown to monstrous proportions and if you read the concoction which is the charter for this unconstitutional corporation,- The MRRA  it is revealed  that in its crowing jewel of Maine State Inc has granted unto itself to right to acquire anyone's property to use for the purposes of "economic development"- were it not for the fact that of the obstacle of a charter which is a concoction of ambiguous legal authority.


Note added later. To my knowledge to date, There are three such state owned and controlled economic development "municipal corporations" in Maine- The Loring Development, The Washington County Development Authority, and the MRRA.The Loring Development was the first and found under Title 10 of the statutes, The other two are appendages to Title 5 §13083, which is a phantom chapter which has been repealed and all data about that chapter extracted from the Maine State Website that lists all the statures on October 6 2012, after the publication of this post


The Maine State Constitution prohibits the legislature from chartering the corporate state but there has been no authority enforcing the Maine state constitution for decades on end. Since the culture in Augusta is accepting that statutory law supersedes the constitution- the change can only be initiated from the people themselves. In my view the inhabitants of the municipality known as the MRRA who have a unique opportunity to turn the tide in the other direction and dethrone the legislature as the all powerful rule of law in the State of Maine and restore our beautiful state constitution to its rightful place- A what a powerful story that would make! Think of the movie rights if that's what it takes to get the inhabitants of the MRRA municipality motivated!

Maine state Inc is a corporation that has accumulated capital- not through earned profits - but from state and federal taxpayers and non-profit gift giving. As a corporation it is far larger than any municipal corporation can be. If allowed to continue its gowth unopposed it will eventually gobble up all local authority as the case of the MRRA establishes in that Maine State inc has usurped the power that constitutionally belongs to "the inhabitants of the municipality" Arise Inhabitants of the Municipality! Arise!

  1. Thanks very much for this series of posts. I had saved one of your earlier posts, and am just now getting around to reading it. Very interesting indeed. I hope to learn more over time, but from my new-found dealings with the legislature, my naive idea of what our state government is, couldn't be more wrong.

  2. Thanks for the feedback. I was in much the same place back in 2009 when I uncharacteristically entered the Juice conference competition. I had no idea then how our government functions. The more I research , the more mind boggling it is, and the legislation currently being passed is the most outrageous as our legislature gets more and more brazen about superseding the state constitution since no one has protested in decades. Magazines like MaineBiz, which is currently sponsoring a "Momentum" conference are just the PR arm of Maine State Inc, as far as I can see. I won't be attending the "Momentum Conference" but I suspect that if I did it would be as revelatory as it was when I attended the Juice Conference and listened to an entire panel tell us how wonderful it is that the taxpayers of Maine are subsidizing a high growth investors corporation.

An Incomplete Theory of Inflation Made to Order for Mass Consumption.

M oney is not what it used to be, so must our ways of thinking about it adapt. jaakko-kemppainen-unsplash The message treads across the media terrain, beating louder and louder as if to drown out the beat of the distant drummer. W arning! The only thing the stimulus will stimulate is inflation. The people will pay as the wealthy elite invests their windfalls in financial assets. Doom and gloom set to march across the land to the beat of the distribution of stimulus funds. In recent years as past predictions of fiscal disaster following stimulus spending failed to materialize and so the thinking about national debt and deficits has evolved, most noticeably with the development of  Modern Monetary Theory .

Why are social impact investors trying so hard to defeat smaller shelters for the homeless?

  "Social Impact” developers in Portland, Maine seek to squelch a referendum for smaller shelters called for by qualified practitioners with concrete experience in the field. A large sign says Vote C to support the Homeless, small handmade sign next to it says Untrue! That sign is paid for by developers who want / Photo by Jess Falero In   the 1970s under Governor Longley , Maine became a centrally managed economy that expanded Maine’s wealth gap and merged, almost seamlessly, the public and private and the non-profit and for-profit economic sectors into one mutually beneficial wealth-concentration & distribution system. Currently, mutually benefitting factions are coming together once again in hopes of building a mega-shelter for the homeless in a Portland, Maine industrial development district. In addition to beds for the homeless, the project will include, dining, and locker facilities, as well as offices and an attached health clinic. The promotion  describes the facility

JECD Group Holds Master Plan Pow Wow for Boothbay Peninsula

The most honest statement to come out of the ringleaders of the Joint Economic Community Development Group in their first workshop program was "none of us are experts on economic development", which in my most humble opinion is evident in the fact that the JECD begins with the premise that economic development can be master minded by central management. The article in the Boothbay Register begins with this paragraph: The Joint Economic Development Committee master plan workshop on Thursday, Oct. 12 discuss findings from stakeholder interviews conducted early last month. The interviews centered around building an overall economic development strategy for Edgecomb, Boothbay, Boothbay Harbor and Southport. Who are the stakeholders?  A search for articles in the Boothbay Register comes up short. Why is the public not told who the stakeholders are. Since the taxpayers of Boothbay and Boothbay Harbor footed the bill for the JECD's consultants, why are they not the stakeh
