Episode 017 Show Notes
In the seventeenth episode there is discussion of politician foreign bank accounts, the UN Gun Treaty, and our Fearless Leader usurping more liberties from the masses. The guys quickly cover Article IV of the US Constitution. The Prep School segment discusses weapons caches.
Full Faith and Credit shall be given in each State to the public Acts, Records, and judicial Proceedings of every other State. And the Congress may by general Laws prescribe the Manner in which such Acts, Records and Proceedings shall be proved, and the Effect thereof.
The Citizens of each State shall be entitled to all Privileges and Immunities of Citizens in the several States.
A Person charged in any State with Treason, Felony, or other Crime, who shall flee from Justice, and be found in another State, shall on demand of the executive Authority of the State from which he fled, be delivered up, to be removed to the State having Jurisdiction of the Crime.
(No Person held to Service or Labour in one State, under the Laws thereof, escaping into another, shall, in Consequence of any Law or Regulation therein, be discharged from such Service or Labour, But shall be delivered up on Claim of the Party to whom such Service or Labour may be due.) (This clause in parentheses is superseded by the 13th Amendment.)
New States may be admitted by the Congress into this Union; but no new States shall be formed or erected within the Jurisdiction of any other State; nor any State be formed by the Junction of two or more States, or parts of States, without the Consent of the Legislatures of the States concerned as well as of the Congress.
The Congress shall have Power to dispose of and make all needful Rules and Regulations respecting the Territory or other Property belonging to the United States; and nothing in this Constitution shall be so construed as to Prejudice any Claims of the United States, or of any particular State.
The United States shall guarantee to every State in this Union a Republican Form of Government, and shall protect each of them against Invasion; and on Application of the Legislature, or of the Executive (when the Legislature cannot be convened) against domestic Violence.
In Mills v. Duryee, 11 U.S . 481 (1813), the United States Supreme Court ruled that the merits of a case, as settled by courts of one state, must be recognized by the courts of other states; state courts may not reopen cases which have been conclusively decided by the courts of another state. Later, Chief Justice John Marshall suggested that the judgment of one state court must be recognized by other states' courts as final.
During the Civil War, the people of western Virginia rejected the state convention's decision to secede from the Union. This region formed a new government for the state of Virginia, which President Abraham Lincoln immediately recognized. In 1863 this state legislature permitted its western counties to split off and become the state of West Virginia. Congress recognized West Virginia, as did the Supreme Court in Virginia v. West Virginia, 78 U.S. 39 (1871).

METHODS OF LONG TERM UNDERGROUND STORAGE
WILLIAM N. NELSON AND STANLEY A. CATLOW
The use of PVC pipe is well worth the time and trouble. It is impervious to just about anything and will last long beyond your lifetime. The biggest factor is cost . The cost of the pipe itself is not too bad, but the cost of the end caps normally used with PVC pipe is OUT OF SIGHT! (See appendix J.)To save the "out of sight" cost of the PVC end caps, the best alternative is to use PVC or Plexiglas sheets cut to size and glued to the ends of the pipes. However, you must be sure that the ends of the pipe are square. The best thing to use to insure this is a radial arm saw. Lacking this, the next best thing would be to make a miter box out of scrap lumber and cut it with a hand saw.
To begin with, PVC pipe comes in many sizes and strengths. For our purposes, probably, the best sizes would be 5" or 6" in either 63 pound or 100 pound strength. To prepare the pipe for use, first seal one end. Seal must be air tight. Next, drop in enough plastic (Styrofoam) beads to cover the sealed end. Put a length of copper tubing down to the bottom of the pipe. Insert the item to be stored centering it in the pipe. Fill up all of the remaining air space with more plastic beads. Turn on the Freon can attached to the copper tubing. Slowly, (Be sure the can is upright so that Freon gas comes out rather than liquid.) Hold a match at the opening of the pipe. When the match goes out, the pipe is full of Freon. (Lack of oxygen makes it go out.) Then, remove the tubing (carefully) and immediately cap and seal the open end of the pipe. It would be a good idea to insert a packet of silica gel inside the pipe before sealing to take care of any residual moisture that might be present.
Cosmoline is very resistant to moisture, chemical, salt water and small amounts of abrasion. It is non-drying and will prevent rust for long periods of time. It's main use for our purposes would be long term storage of firearms. However, one thing to note carefully. DO NOT apply it to stocks, grips, scopes or anything made out of plastic. Also, when removing cosmoline from a firearm (use a petroleum solvent) be sure to thoroughly clean ALL surfaces, especially the bore.
There are two main methods of applying cosmoline. The first method is by dipping.
The second and easiest method is by brushing or swabbing.
A desiccant is a substance which absorbs water from the air. There are many chemical compounds which will act as a desiccant. However, many such as barium perchlorate or phosphorus pentoxide can form corrosive material as they absorb moisture. Two very good desiccants which are readily available and excellent for long term use are silica gel and Drierite. Drierite is a product of the W. A. Hammond Drierite Company and is anhydrous calcium sulfate. Silica gel is manufactured by many companies and is a precipitated silica acid, but is quite inert to any chemical reaction.
LOCATION OF BURIAL SITE, PLACEMENT OF CONTAINER
If you are storing food for a long term for emergency use during some type of calamity, your house would serve as a good location. However, if you are storing firearms or the like until the "Crunch" comes, your house or yard is probably the worst possible location. (Unless you own a large number of acres.) With today's technology (i.e., metal detectors) any place you bury or store them is going to be easy to locate. A house or yard can be scanned in pretty short order. Snoopy neighbors are also a hazard. The best location would be somewhere relatively remote. There are several things to keep in mind about picking a location. Be sure as you can that it is not going to be the location of a development of some kind or in the way of a highway construction project. Also be sure that you have some type of permanent, natural reference points which can be used to locate the site at some point in the future when your memory of it's location can be somewhat hazy. Bury it DEEP. Four feet or more is best. (be sure the area is not prone to floods or erosion) To confuse possible searchers (other than yourself) it is best to scatter tin cans and the like a foot or two from the surface to make it appear as though the area was used as a dump of some sort.
MARKING THE CONTAINERS
If you are burying more than one item in an area, it is best to put some outside identification on the container so you will know for sure what is inside. The best method is to obtain some clear plastic sheets used for covering cards, etc., for protection while carrying in your billfold. These can be obtained at most stationery stores. They have an adhesive on one side and usually come in letter size sheets. Type or write the description of the item in the container on a small card and seal between two pieces of plastic and trim off the excess, being sure to leave enough around the edges to insure a perfect seal.
