Stalkers and Locate Investigations

Locating people is an investigator's job. Commonly called a “locate investigation” or just a “locate,” this type of work assignment represents one of the most common types of investigations received from lawyers, insurance companies and private parties. Most locates involve serving legal papers. Everything from divorce papers and child support orders to insurance claims or an eviction or maybe a probate notices of someone’s inheritance.

The Surveillance Serve

Any professional involved in serving court papers, also known as serving civil process, will have their own story about how far some people will go to try and evade service of process. Every story is different, but they have one common element: the person serving process needs to be able to see through the deception and complete the serve. This task is often beyond the skills of a process server because they don’t have the resources to prepare themselves adequately, in the way a licensed private investigator does. [ 449 more words ]

Covert Cameras and Service of Process

Not every case will merit using a licensed private investigator for service of process. Most "standard" serves can still be performed by a process server. For those few matters where the subject to be served is either evasive or hard to find (or both) the services of a good private detective will ultimately save time and money. Plus, your proof of service will include a color picture of the service, captured by a covert eyeglass camera. [ 247 more words ]

What exactly is the Trump Movement? Depending on the source, estimates are suggesting Republican turnout nationwide has thus far been up about 25 % over 2012 while Democrat turnout has been down by a similar number.

All news outlets are reporting the Republicans have a great deal of energy while the Democrats do not. An often repeated term is, historically the Democrats fall in love while the Republicans fall in line, but this election cycle has seen this pattern reversed.

So, the question becomes, why? Trump is the easy answer, but is it the correct one? Without doubt Mr. Trump is exciting his followers and equally probable is the likelihood that Democratic falloff is a measure of those leaving that party to vote Republican.

However, we must consider the possibility that Democrats are running from Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton rather than running toward Donald Trump.

In the view of any American who was at least of voting age by 1991, the United States won the long and exhausting cold war that year when the Soviet Union, bankrupted by the policies and leadership of Ronald Reagan, finally collapsed.

The end of that evil empire should have brought an era of peace, liberty and global unity. Instead, it brought deeper divides, a flowering of violent regional conflicts, radicalization of Islam, and a growing love of Socialism among young Americans.

During the Cold War years, Americans became complacent about having radical Liberals holding teaching jobs all across our educational system. Embracing Liberalism to a limited degree was a part of our effort to stem the rise of Communism by giving the childish mindset of Marxists a place to vent their frustrations and to feel they had made some important changes to what they view as "the evils of Capitalism."

The United States erred in remaining complacent about radical Liberalism in out educational system following the end of the Cold War. Seeing an openly unapologetic Socialist running for President has starkly reminded us of our mistake. We won the Cold War, and lost the peace that followed.

To America's older generations, a personal representative of the losing side from the Cold War seeking the US Presidency is very nearly an act of treason. While Bernie Sanders espouses the very policies that failed in the Soviet Union and have failed Greece and Venezuela, the United States and our liberty driven free market economy continues to be the gold standard for the entire world.

The good news appears to be the utter rejection of Bernie Sanders by a large body of otherwise die hard Democrats. The defection of one quarter of Democratic voters is a very loud and unmistakable message.

Then there is Hillary. To some extent it would be better if Mrs. Clinton were not equally repugnant to so many Americans. Were she a better candidate the defection of the Democratic base could more directly be seen as a repudiation of the monumental and global failure of Socialism.

Instead, those results are diluted by the very real possibility that many of those defecting are leaving the Clinton machine to vote for anyone but Clinton.

And there is Trump. It would equally be better if the on going Democrat migration into the Republican party was happening in the absence of a candidate who has no record of conservative policies. Mr. Trump has supported Hillary Clinton, Harry Reid and other notable Democrats while they ran for office.

Mr. Trump's campaign, therefore, obfuscates the picture because we cannot really determine if the rise in Republican voters represents a rejection of Sanders/Clinton so much as it does Trump's appearance as a really qualified Liberal. Maybe Democrats are coming over to the Republicans because the best Liberal in the race is a Republican.

Bernie is very engaging to watch. It is interesting to listen to this elder “Statesmen” describe his vision of the United States. He promises free tuition to all college students, free universal health care, and to create an economy that “works for us all.”

Listening to his debates, reading his media posts and trying to find the details on any of these plans has thus far been fruitless. Healthcare for all would be a massive expansion of Medicare, says Senator Sanders.

The plan to make our universities free of tuition has not materialized. This particular promise seems to be the one Bernie makes that has really revves up our college age voters!

But there is no discernable plan being presented by the Sanders campaign to explain how our current college system and all of the widely varied private post-secondary educators would become tuition free.

Research really leaves only more questions.

In the United States today there are state colleges, or state universities, that are funded by or associated with a state government. These institutions exist under the laws of each state. The US federal government does not run any colleges or universities except for service academies and a handful of federally chartered universities.

Private 4 year and 2 year colleges and universities number approximately 4,726 institutions that are qualified as Title IV degree granting institutions. These private educational institutions also exist under the laws of the state in which they are located.

The main obstacle apparent by these facts is the issue of state rights. Since Bernie has not given any indication how his administration, if he were elected, might propose to make all universities tuition free.

The first intuitive choice would be simply having the federal government write a check to each university to cover existing tuition for the existing student body. Without considering how that bill would get paid each year, we still need to ask how many students will be attending?

Also, there would likely be a large shift in the topics studied. Denmark has enjoyed a privileged position in Europe for decades and have been a social petri dish on Socialism. Their 50 + % tax rate provides free education.

Unfortunately, when students are pondering their future, they chose not to pursue science and technology educations because they lead to tough jobs with stress, deadlines, and, well, they would have to actually work.

So they chose arts, and acting. Singing and painting. Poetry and expressive writing. Employers are finding these kids hard to hire, and the economy is teetering toward collapse because there are no brains growing in their educational system needed to replace aging engineers and scientists.

And this result from a vantage unique in the world where this country has a homogeneous community, allows no immigration, pays nothing for any military or other national defenses and has only a police force and small border and maritime patrol forces.

Despite these favorable conditions, which are impossible elsewhere in the world, still Socialism has failed and it failed for exactly the reason our Liberty driven free market economy has always succeeded. Socialism failed because its very basic axioms fly in direct contrast to human nature.

Where self-interest drives a robust free market, that same self-interest leads Danish students to choose an easy career in a stress fee task because earning money is really not important where the Socialist government takes your earnings anyway.

Back in the United States, we are still wondering how Bernie will make our universities free. Although writing a check for tuition seems intuitively the choice, the Danish experience suggests the Bernie administration will need to keep a much tougher finger on the students who get to go to school free.

Free ride to school maybe, but freedom of choice appears to not be an option.

This raises the need for Bernie to use his administration to control all of these colleges and universities, both state and private.

How is he going to do that?

All of these institutions exist under state laws. Bernie is saying he can do this as President of the United States. His administration can always propose legislation, and for the sake of argument here we’ll be generous and presume Bernie might gather the political clout to get it passed in congress.

How are federal regulations going to both pay tuition and motivate students to stay in academics when they are free from the economic reality of choosing a profession for the purpose of earning a living?

Will the federal government be deciding how many students enroll? There are not enough space for every single person in the United States to simultaneously start attending college. Since it’s free, everyone will want to do it.

Will the private institutions still be able to admit only the most qualified students?

Who will decide how much these private institutions will charge for tuition?

What if the states refuse to obey the free tuition law and continue to admit students under their own administrations and collect private money tuition like they always have?

Wouldn’t the federal government need to take over all of these colleges and universities?

Wouldn’t the federal government need to seize private property and collect to itself all of the means of production?

Can any of these things be done within the meaning of our Constitution?

If you support Bernie, then please ask yourself if he didn't really understand the scope of the change his promise requires. Why Senator Sanders has not states specifically that his ideas will require a fundamental change to our Constitution?

Here is the other problem that arises when considering Bernie's promise of free universities. He's 74 years old. Been around and you better believe he is old school. Although the young find his message new and refreshing, bold and intuitive, it is in fact old and haggard. Used, abused and put away dirty and wet.

His approach is meant to appeal to our young, college age voters because that is exactly the pattern that every Marxist movement has used. Yeah, I wrote "Marxist." Sucks, huh?

But let’s take stock; Marx said to destroy Capitalism the movement would need to undermine the family, discredit the Church and end the practice of private property.

Sound familiar?

Research and read about how this very same message was used by another un apologetic Socialist in the 1970's. He managed to spark a youth driven revolt that cost more lives than historians have been able to accurately calculate, but most estimate around 50 million people.

Same message.

Bernie was literally on his honeymoon in the Soviet Union while the massacre was on-going in China. I'd like any of our young Bernie supporters to research his history and find all that Mr. Sanders did to help those suffering in China under Socialism, or to stop the butchery that cost so many lives.

Now, I'm not saying he was in any way responsible for what happened in China, and I'm sure he and his supporters would quickly point out that China's government was not Bernie's Democratic Socialism. And they will be right.

Like a broken clock, twice a day.

All liberal governments draw their basic reasoning from that long ago, disgruntled and deeply unhappy but tragically gifted man, Carl Marx. It fundamentally does not matter if the government that attempts to adopt Marxist ideas calls itself Socialist, Socialist Republic or Democratic Socialist.

They are all branches of the same tree. So as we listen to Bernie tell our youth that the United States owes them a free education because the top wealthy people of our nation should be hated and reviled, and that he needs to "fix" our liberty driven, constitutionally protected free market economy so that it "works for all," I hope you will hear past his glossy speeches to the cold reality of what his entire life has been about; the destruction of the Unites States.
