    The aim of the common law court of Wales is to provide an open forum. Discussing solutions for the injustices’ forced upon us all by an unaccountable government that no longer represents the interests of the people.


    Government instead represents odious private corporate interests which facilitate them in thieving our land, our resources, our labour, time and energy. Even our children are bought and sold within this debt slave system which is enforced by colour of law. A system, of fear, fraud and deceit and other dishonourable tactics, is employed by the corporate slave masters and their puppet government and agents.

    The HD View Ask Dr. Goodman Show

    in Health

    Let's talk about caregiving!  Tune in today as we talk with Dr. Goodman about the challenges of caregiving for our HD and JHD loved ones.  Many of us are dealing with so much loss before the loss and after the loss of our loved ones.  If you are a caregiver you know what I'm talking about. One person states, "On top of the personal stress, there is also the stress of maintaining one's home: replacing broken glass, punched doors, cleaning the furniture, not having friends over as often which lends into losing many people. Many of these "things," which is actually part of one's home community, go to pot so to speak. Even the outside of the home becomes shabby....all this lends to the stress of a caregiver."


    In trying to identify how many of us are caregiving, I found that it's really impossible to know the numbers because of the level of stress that the caregiver is under 24/7.  This stress does not let up; it only intensifies. Those of us who are under this kind of stress don't have time to answer surveys or polls. The question is how can we live like this?  Who will help us?  It's our own community who are so giving and caring and supportive, that's who.  


    Thank you HD Community for all that you do; for your committment to help others. You are amazing!

    The term "school to prison pipeline, was first used in the USA, however it is becoming increasingly used and recgonised in the UK. Many parents and carers are all to aware of what can only be described as the systematic way in which children are being "pushed" out of the education system. When speaking with these children and young people they often say, that they are made to feel less than their peers, they feel picked on and that they are treated differently then other students. There have even been reports on direct & verbal racial abuse, met out by teachers towards black children. It has been well documented that Black children do far better academically in school when they are between the ages of five to eleven years. There is growing concern amongst academics and parents at the large rate in which black children are forced out of school at very important stages of their academic lives. It has also been well documented in the mainstream press that teachers have admitted to "marking down the work of black students", they have admitted to having low expectations of black students, so tend to ignore them in class. When a child reacts to what they often see as being ignored or treated differently they are severly reprimanded, for at times, minor offences which their peers are simply given a warning or in house reprimand for.
