Omnibus Trade and Competitiveness Act of 1988
(Public Law 100-148 August 23, 1988)
To enhance the competitiveness of American industry, and other purposes.
Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United States of America
in Congress assembled,
SECTION 1. SHORT TITLE AND TABLE OF CONTENTS (a) SHORT TITLE
This Act may be cited as the Omnibus Trade and Competitiveness Act of 1988?. SEC. 5164. METRIC
(a) FINDINGS. Section 2 of the Metric Conversion Act of 1975 is amended by adding at the end
thereof the following new paragraph:
?(3) World trade is increasingly geared towards the metric system of measurement.?
?(4) Industry in the United States is often at a competitive disadvantage when dealing in
international markets because of its nonstandard measurement system, and is sometimes excluded when
it is unable to deliver goods which are measured in metric terms.
?(5) The inherent simplicity of the metric system of measurement and standardization of weight and
measures has led to major cost savings in certain industries which have converted to that system.?
?(6) The Federal Government has a responsibility to develop procedures and techniques to assist
industry, especially small business, as it voluntarily converts to the metric
system of measurement.?
?(7) The metric system of measurement can provide substantial advantage to the Federal
Government in its own operations.?
(b) POLICY. ? Section 3 of the Metric Conversion Act of 1975 is amended to read as follows:
SEC. 3. It is therefore the declared policy of the United States ?
?(1) to designate the metric system of measurement as the preferred system of weights and measures
for United States trade and commerce?;
?(2) to require that each Federal agency, by a date certain and to the extent economically feasible
by the end of the fiscal year 1992, use the metric system of measurement in its procurement,
grants, and other business-related activities, Except to the extent that such use is impractical or is likely to cause significant inefficiencies or loss of markets to United States firms, such as when foreign competitors are producing competing products in non-metric units?;
?(3) to seek out ways to increase understanding of the metric system of measurement through
educational information and guidance and in Government Publications?; and
?(4) to permit the continued use of traditional systems of weights and measures in nonbusiness
(c) IMPLEMENTATION. ? The Metric Conversion Act of 1975 is further amended by predesignating
section 12 as section 13, and by inserting after section 11 the following new section:
?SEC.12(a) As soon as possible after the date of thee enactment of this section, each agency of the
Federal Government shall establish guideline to carry out the policy set forth in section 3 (with
particular emphasis upon the policy set forth in paragraph (2) of that section), and as part of its
annual budget submission for each fiscal year beginning after such date shall report to the
Congress on the actions which it has taken during the previous fiscal year, as well as the actions
which it plans for the fiscal year involved, to implement fully that metric system of measurement
in accordance with that policy. Such reporting shall cease for an agency in the fiscal year after
it has fully implemented its efforts under section 3(2). As used in this section, the term ?agency?
of the Federal Government? means an Executive Agency or military department as those terms are
defined in chapter 1 of title 5, United States Code.
(b) At the end of the fiscal year 1992, the Comptroller General shall review the implementation of
this Act, and upon completion of such review shall report his findings to the Congress along with
any legislative recommendations he may have.

video produced by George Hunt exposes how the progenitors of the
hijacked environmental movement, people like Maurice Strong, the
Rothschild family and David Rockefeller, always intended the scam to
achieve global population reduction along with a global carbon tax based on a cap and trade system controlled by them.

2012-07-31 Hour 1 Richard Grove (TragedyAndHope.Com) talks about the
07-30-2012 www.tragedyandhope.com How to FREE Your Mind: The Occulted Keys of Wisdom
I had written a
presentation titled How to Free Your Mind, based on the use of the
Trivium Method of critical thinking and creative problem solving; this
was to be presented at the Free Your Mind Conference, in a lecture
given by Jan Irvin of Gnostic Media.
Another great Digital Magazine I'm very fond of. Our goal was to highlight the future of healthcare and the solutions offered by liberty minded individuals. But to do this we also needed to provide an examination of how it got so bad in the first place.Attention to the World Economy couldn't wait so that issue featured in this edition as well.
Gwen Strmic was well trained by my daughter Sierra to take over the layout of the FreedomsPhoenix eZine and Gwen did a great job. Thank you Gwen!
The cover illustrations by Scott Bieser are always a treat to work on with Scott. And November's will be blown up "banner LARGE" for Libertopiaand will be a nice surprise for everyone :)
Below I detail one of our latest efforts to free the planet. I hope you will be inspired to take advantage of all of the work that went into making this method of activism as easy as possible.
It is not as hard as people might think to have activism in support of liberty to go viral across the planet... it's just impossible to control it.
Here's an example FreedomsPhoenix hopes to share with you so you'll be able to recognize the effectiveness of Open Source Activism that can be tailored to any event anywhere (Here in Arizona we are focusing on the City of Tempe, Arizona State University and the Occupy WallStreet/America/Planet efforts here in Arizona)
We intend to Occupy the minds of THE PLANET!... and this is the latest method that is working very well right now. So we have made this activism Open Source and have removed as many development hurdles as we can.
Below was a demonstration project with the cooperation of several activist efforts to show what can be accomplished. But this is far more complicated than most local projects will be.

Sample Graphics for Inspiration
Any one of these QR Code graphics can be reproduced in any size/quantity/combination or as a single image. AdamvsTheMan is an example of a single image and a single size being mass produced for a single effort/project (Rick and Carsen at LibertyStickers.comcan help you with any effort. Simple to Complex.)
There are plenty of options out there if you want to track how many times your
QR code has been scanned. You can use a public URL shortener like http://goo.gl that provides you
with metrics or you can run your own. If you chose to use a public URL
shortener, the system is taken care of for you, which could be good, or bad. If
your Google account password is lost or stolen, you may not be able to recover
it... or if your account is locked out for any
reason, it might take a long time and many headaches before you can get back
For many out there that have your own webservers, the clear and
obvious choice is to run your own URL tracking system. The most robust and
customizable option out there is also one of the easiest to install and run. Check out YOURLS to
get you started. YOURLS has a plugin based architecture that allows you to
easily add features that the base software is missing. For instance, if you want
to make URL shortening and tracking easy to use on your WordPress blog, there is
plugin. More importantly, if you want to automatically create a QR code for
each URL you create, just install the free QR code
plugin. For a list of all of the known YOURLS plugins, head on over here. If you are
uncomfortable around editing PHP configuration files, YOURLS is not for you. But, if you can followdirections,
can understand basic PHP and know how to add users to MySQL with either command line or cpanel,
its worth a shot to install your own URL shortener and tracker.
The Screen shot below is of a 30 up mailing label sheet for a project we helped James Babb and friends with, Infiltration into the Occupy Philly effort (another example of what we can do nationwide... The Right gave us the TeaPartyExpress to play with and now The Left has provided us a Silver Platter heaping with young minds to be freed with the Occupy Wall Street/America/Planet big sister effort to the TeaParty).
These labels went onto an Anarchist DVD created by CopBlock.org (Ademo & Pete) and Nick from CopBlockPodcast here in Arizona. We burned hundreds of the DVDs, placed this sticker on them (QR Code goes to OccupiedNow.orgthat was created by the Voluntarists in Philly), put them in a paper sleeve with our LOVEolutionary Bandit QR coded card and immediately sent them to James Babb for them to add whatever they wish to the packet. The DVD was a good introduction to voluntarism for the occupiers, but we are working on a new DVD featuring a lot of the current coverage so that we can BE CERTAIN to express our opinion to the thousands in the streets needing this perspective.
So imagine the scene... Every 'occupying' laptop with a DVD player 'camping out', will have a few people watching the DVDs and everyone with a SmartPhone will be scanning the QR Codes..... BOOM SHAKALAKA.... "Injection of the libertarian infection into the bone marrow of the Occupy America effort,... for which there is no cure!"
Soros and friends want to back up their 18 wheelers of lemons to our Lemonade Stands in the streets... COOL! :)
This is one of the many activist projects that we are working on now. The reason our efforts are successful is that we don't even start unless we have wide support for the concept from individuals that see the benefit for their own reasons. We then make every effort to make it easy for others to make use of the tools we created. And then.... we just stay out of the way... No Central Planning!
November's activism will feature the simple idea of, as many activists as possible posting items for sale on Craigslist etc. that provide a discount if payment is in Silver. We will feature the "Silver Calculator" downloadable App for Android/iPhone/Blackberry in each post that will take place on a single day across the nation to introduce the planet to a real solution.
We have been working on this for years :) www.LibertyTrade.net (imagine.... eBay and Craiglist features combined with the additional feature of selecting what currency/commodity can be used in the transaction :)
