    Two "paper terrorists" plead guilty for mail fraud in Ulster County schemes

    ALBANY — Two anti-government zealots who operated in Ulster County have pleaded guilty to federal mail fraud charges.

    Jeffrey Burfeindt, 47, of Highland, and Ed-George Parenteau, 53, of Chenango County, pleaded guilty Thursday. The U.S. Attorney’s Office said the two could face up to 20 years in prison and a $250,000 fine.

    Parenteau and Burfeindt belong to a “sovereign-citizen” movement that does not believe in the legitimacy of government. After they were arrested for trespassing at a house in Highland in 2009, the men began filing bogus liens against police officers, judges and other government officials in the Town of Lloyd and Ulster County.

    The liens, known as “paper terrorism,” totaled more than $135 billion, authorities said. They were charged with mail fraud because the fake papers were sent through the postal service.

    They’re due to be sentenced May 13 in U.S. District Court in Albany.
    I hate the government but attempting stuff like this is down right retarded.

    While I agree with chevydriver1123 that one who conducts themselves as these two idiots have a serious problem with mental acuity, I must question the wisdom of anyone who hates the best for of government to ever come along.

    I dislike much of what is done by those in our Government and always have since I first learned to read and understand the Constitution, and from time to time things are done that I truly hate, but I do my level best not to hate the form of government or the people when it's the acts I hate.

    We have our selves to blame for electing less honest people and liars like Obama to office, so it's up to us to change what they do by changing who is there.
