Petition to Mark Zuckerberg

Support Our Facebook Class Action Lawsuit By Signing The Petition Today!

Are you tired of the Suppression, Censorship, Privacy Violations and the Overall Unethical Business Practice of Mainstream Social Media? So are we! We are taking the fight to them and need your support.  I am Steven Vulich, Founder and Ceo of InfinitySN , which is a New Social Network attempting to provide a solution to the Social Media Monopolies. I believe I am one of millions who have been suppressed by Facebook in many ways, and have decided to initiate a Class Action Lawsuit against the social giant. But I need your voice! Your signature is Vital!  Sign the petition today and let's show Facebook and all the other Social Network Monopolies out there that we will not take this kind of treatment any longer! This is something everyone can get behind because it affects all of us.  I need your help to take on Facebook, and send a strong message that We The People will not take Suppression, Censorship and the Violation of our Privacy any longer on social media. You have had your posts taken down, have thousands of followers only to "reach" a few, paid to boost your post even to the members who are already following or liked your page and more! They have tons of money and power in a legal setting, but what is bigger than that?  All of us, together, and together we will beat them!  I took an oath many years ago to protect our freedoms while serving in the US Army for 10 years, and an additional 10 years protecting and serving our local communities as a police officer.  I will continue public service by serving our online community as Ceo of a new social network by taking the overdue fight to Facebook and it's Ceo, Mark Zuckerberg. "Sorry" just isn't good enough anymore as they continue to violate US Citizens!  I ask that you show your support in what is possibly the most important campaign of 2019.   We have seen it in the news, congressional hearings and all over the internet, but we do nothing about it as they continue to dominate the market and violate our privacy and our rights to free speech.  We can do something about it now, together!  We no longer have to feel helpless or powerless to take them on and bring more comparable options. Let's not sit back and do nothing while the growing monopolies continue to embed their companies so far into our lives, that we have no other options to choose from if they become corrupt. This would be devastating to our society and seems to be a reality these days as it continues to cause division within our own borders. Together we will do this!  Please Sign this very important petition as it affects all of us.  Please Share this all over social media, they will notice!

Save Veterans from Tyrannical VA Bureaucrats

The VA has become a very serious administrative threat because, often faceless, government bureaucrats can take away the civil liberties of veterans. The rule of law can serve as a safeguard against tyranny, because just laws ensure that rulers (government bureaucrats) do not become corrupt. Tyranny occurs when absolute power is granted to a ruler (or in this case a government bureaucrat).  The rule of law is the principle that no one is exempt from the law, even those who are in a position of power.  Yet at the VA, many government bureaucrats commit crimes every day with impunity because our agencies are failing to enforce the rule of law.   The administrative state describes a form of government that uses an extensive professional class to provide oversight over government, the economy and society. It creates a "network of small complicated rules" bringing about "soft tyranny." It stands in stark contrast to a representative democracy with limited powers and reach. The Administrative state violates the constitutional principle of separation of powers, threatens civil liberties including the right to due process, and undermines the ability of citizens to have a meaningful say in politics and public policy. The administrative state empowers a distinct knowledge class to make important political and policy decisions, largely unchecked and unsupervised, at the expense of citizens' voting power and the power of the legislature and the judiciary.  James Madison, wrote that the human tendency to accumulate power required a government with checks and balances "...to control the abuses of government."  As you will see from some of the facts shown below, the Department of Veterans of Affairs has been allowed to police itself with very dire consequences for veterans. Petty tyrannical paper pushers are allowed to destroy the lives of veterans. The paper pushers have been able to infiltrate and control veteran's lives using a dangerous language that denies choice. The Nazi's coined this language by calling it "Amtssprache" which can be loosely translated into English as "office talk" or "bureaucratese".   The Nazi's found ways to disconnect any emotional sensibility they might have felt from prohibitive thoughts in order to continue their grisly work. They did it by developing a language that helped them to deny the reality of what they were doing and transfer the responsibility for their actions onto a faceless entity, like VA policy. In this extreme disconnection of thought and feeling innocent people died and perpetrators continued, immunizing themselves with their words and rationalizations. They blinded themselves to what they and their colleagues were doing in order to satisfy superiors' orders so they could keep their jobs. During the Nuremberg trials, when Adolf Eichmann was asked, "was it difficult for you to send those tens of thousands of people to their death?' Eichmann replied, 'To tell you the truth, it was easy. Our language made it easy.' Asked to explain, Eichmann said, 'My fellow officers and I coined our name for our language. We called it an "amtssprache"--"office talk." In our "office talk" you deny responsibility for your actions. So, if anybody says, "Why did you do it?" you say, "I had to." Why did you have to?" "Superiors' orders. Company policy. It's the law".' Eichmann's defense is also known as the "Nuremberg plea."  In fact, what Eichmann said about the power of bureaucratically--obscure, euphemistically--mentioned language, shadowing operations few people participated in, provides a very clear example of how, by creating a culture that values following the rules, you risk also creating a culture that loses its moral compass or code.  The Eichmann defense is the most dangerous language (-have to, -can't) because it is a language that denies responsibility for choice. Stating, "It's my job"; "They told me to do it"; "I'm only following company policy"; "It's the rules"; "It's not my job"-- shields ourselves from doing what is best and right.  There are many areas where the VA bureaucrats are acting with impunity, but one of the most insidious ways in which it exerts threats, fear, and control is by violating veterans privacy. The VA and other agencies are not enforcing existing privacy laws.  1) The prevalence of privacy violations at the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) has become an epidemic system wide; and 2) Even though the VA is one of the top Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA) privacy offenders, the Office of Civil Rights, an arm of the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), that enforces HIPAA, has largely ignored the VA’s problem; and  3) Office of Inspector General (OIG) released a report April 2016, in which the Veterans Benefit Administration (VBA) had not integrated proper audit logs in their new veterans’ processing computer system, called Veterans Benefits Management System (VBMS); and  4) The VA has not been making everyone with access to its computer systems, who have committed a privacy violation, accountable for their actions, subsequently removing deterrents for those individuals who might be thinking about breaking laws and regulations or who might be inclined to be less diligent about adhering to existing laws and regulations; and  5) The VA has not been holding upper, middle and lower level managers accountable for privacy violations; and 6) The VA has not effectively stopped managers and employees from accessing the private information of both current and former VA employees who are Veterans; and 7) The VA has not been cooperating with other federal agencies responsible for enforcing and complying with existing privacy laws and regulations; Veterans need your help with supporting legislation and changes to applicable regulations that require the VA to comply with and enforce existing privacy laws and regulations, as well as, make everyone, who was given access to the VA computer systems, accountable for violating privacy laws and regulations.

Stop VA Doctors from Giving Veterans Bogus Diagnoses

It is crazy that Department of Veteran's Affairs doctors and health care professionals, who can give diagnoses, are giving some veterans bogus diagnosis as a way to discredit veterans. For one, there is no authority that gives anyone the right to render a diagnoses to a patient whom the doctor has not properly evaluated. Secondly, it is outright fraud when anyone make a false statement in someone's medical records. Thirdly, it is a privacy violation when someone accesses a person's medical records without their consent.  Why isn't the VA doing anything about this? Well, for one the VA and the government in general simply will not police itself. Yes, it will make an example out of a few people, but in general there are thousands of crimes being committed by government bureaucrats everyday that go unchecked. Usually the agency will throw somebody under the bus they do not like or find ways to place blame on a person they do not like. The Department of Health and Human Services has not been enforcing HIPAA laws, the Department of Justice and the Office of Inspector General have stopped investigating and punishing most privacy violators within the government. So if the designated enforcers of the law are not enforcing the law, well then that red light really doesn't mean anything anymore does it? So what about going to the state licensing board of that particular individual who just gave you a bogus diagnosis. Well, as a federal employee, VA professionals can be licensed in any of the states; they do not need to be licensed in the state in which they work. Once you find the state the doctor is licensed, the state board will need documentary proof of the malfeasance. But wait! The VA doesn't give up evidence easily, they will drag it out for years and year. More than likely the veteran will have to pay for an attorney or represent himself in order to get justice. And the likelihood the veteran will get any recourse is very slim to none. The VA has perfected stonewalling and in the end the VA's tactics will more than likely make a sane person go crazy in the end.  So, what is a veteran to do? Live with the bogus diagnosis of "cray-cray-cray-crazy"? or really do turn crazy after dealing the VA bureaucrats? Well, it's really up to the American people and how they care about it. If people do not care nothing will change.  Send a message to our "fearless" leaders that you think it's outrageous and criminal that government employed health care professionals are giving false diagnosis to veterans in order to discredit them and that something needs to be done about this problem. 1) Make VA employees/managers accountable for unethical and unlawful behavior. 2) Enforce privacy laws & regulations 3) Release documents to state professional licensing boards in a timely manner 4) Stop placing the burden of proof on the veteran for VA malfeasance and mistakes.
