The Keynote Speaker: The UsuryFree Network is honoured that David-Kevin: Lindsay from Kelowna, British Columbia will be the key note guest speaker who will be introduced by Tom J. Kennedy, founder of The UsuryFree Network. In the mid-1990's Dave authored a book titled 'Rights Denied' about the driving and license issues. Also since 2000, Dave has been pursuing meticulous research on issues related to taxes, money and banking.
In summary, David-Kevin: Lindsay has been a pioneering mentor for usuryfree creatives. His research has helped people understand just how the design flaw of usury is the evil function on our orthodox money system that is directly and/or indirectly responsible for violence, wars, poverty, scarcity and lack. David will be addressing the current economic crisis and the various implications of Usury/Interest when he speaks on November 12th, to launch this Sixth Annual UsuryFree Week. David will have about one hour for his presentation.
Other Speakers: Dan King (Executive Director) for the Party For People With Special Needs and (Chairman) of the Board of Directors with the Family Life Foundation will talk about his respective roles with each of these organizations and explain how either/or both of them can help in mutually beneficial ways to advance the reality of usuryfree living not only for people with special needs but for everyone. There are some creative ways for taxpayers to donate funds to these organizations and be issued official receipts to qualify for income tax deductions and/or credits when they file their annual income tax forms. Dan King will have approximately a half hour for his presentation.
Q&A: There will be about 20 minutes set aside for questions and answers.
Winged Lion Awards: Winged Lion Awards for 2010 will be presented by Tom J. Kennedy.

"Interest never sleeps nor sickens nor dies; it never goes to the hospital; it works on Sundays and holidays; it never takes a vacation; it never visits nor travels; it takes no pleasure; it is never laid off work nor discharged from employment; it never works on reduced hours; it never has short crops nor droughts; it never pays taxes; it buys no food; it wears no clothes; it is un-housed and without home and so has no repairs, no replacements, no shingling, plumbing, painting, or whitewashing; it has neither wife, children, father, mother, nor kinfolk to watch over and care for; it has no expense of living; it has neither weddings nor births nor deaths; it has no love, no sympathy; it is as hard and soulless as a granite cliff. Once in debt, interest is your companion every minute of the day and night; you cannot shun it or slip away from it; you cannot dismiss it; it yields neither to entreaties, demands, or orders; and whenever you get in its way or cross its course or fail to meet its demands, it crushes you." - J. Reuben Clark’s classic statement on interest -- April, 1938.
Please do not show up to the event unless you have received confirmation from Conspiracy Culture that you do in fact have a seat reserved. Thanks.
