The son of a Vietnam Veteran explores U.S. Senate bid.

The son of a Vietnam Veteran explores U.S. Senate bid.

January 8, 2018 The son of a Vietnam Veteran explores U.S. Senate bid. By Ted Burnett The purpose of this Facebook group, Ted Burnett for U.S. Senate in 2020 Group, is to get me, Ted Burnett from Daphne, AL, elected to the United States Senate on November 3, 2020. The seat is currently occupied by Doug Jones (D-AL) a Democrat. In December 2017, Doug won a special election against crazy Judge Roy Moore. The campaign primarily centered around allegations of Roy Moore hitting on teenage girls while he worked as a prosecutor in a local district attorney’s office some thirty years ago. Like most political campaigns the real issues affecting everyday Alabamians weren’t discussed because they aren’t discussed in Washington, either. It’s time for...

Exploring a bid for the 2020 U.S. Senate race in Alabama.

Exploring a bid for the 2020 U.S. Senate race in Alabama.

December 22, 2017 Currently exploring a bid for the 2020 U.S. Senate race in Alabama (Independent). A potential independent candidate for the United States Senate race (AL). The first step in becoming a candidate is getting one’s name on the official ballot by collecting 36,000 signatures by Alabama registered voters. My reason for running for office is my disgust for what’s happening within each political party and between each political party in Washington, DC. The United States appears to be self-destructing politically, spiritually and socially. We seem to suffer from a spiritual crisis and we’ve forgotten our spiritual foundation as so perfectly written by Thomas Jefferson and the other founding fathers. Politically conservative on...

Saving Capitalism starring Professor Robert Reich [My letter]

Saving Capitalism starring Professor Robert Reich [My letter]

November 27, 2017 Professor Reich, I just finished watching your documentary titled, Saving Capitalism, on Netflix. I thought it was very interesting and well done. However, I believe your understanding of America’s economic problem as it relates to a healthy middle class balanced against the wealthy is poorly understood. You fail to hold Americans accountable for their role in the transfer of wealth and power to the top. I often think about how America can balance its own trade deficit with China while improving savings. Buy less of their stuff! We suffer from materialism and we’re constantly developing new technology to make it all the more easy to spend our money buying new stuff in a push button society. We don’t need more stuff, we need...

Is Christianity a lemon?

Is Christianity a lemon?

November 16, 2017 Is Christianity a lemon? By Ted Burnett The Christian is not a good man. He is a vile wrench who has been saved by the grace of God. – Martyn Lloyd Jones (1899-1981) A Welsh Protestant minister, preacher and medical doctor. This week, I read the above quote while scrolling through Facebook. It had been posted by a friend who went on to make the same claim about his own life. I looked to see who was credited with the quote and based on the dark graphics I assumed it was said by a dangerous man. How wrong I was? When I “Googled” the quote I discovered the name of “Rev. Martyn Lloyd Jones”. I don’t know if this attitude is still relevant and/or widespread in Christianity, today. If so, I couldn’t disagree more with my friend or this minister on how...

Are Lawyers All Raging Psychopaths?(Dear ABA President Hilarie Bass)

November 12, 2017 President Hilarie Bass, American Bar Association Office of the President 321 North Clark Street Chicago, IL 60654-7598 Re: Shreveport, LA attorney James Albert Burnett and his sociopath/psychopathy personality disorder Dear ABA President Bass, I’m writing to you, as President of the ABA, after reading the following article, “Are Lawyers All Raging Psychopaths?” in Psychology Today (August 19, 2014) over the weekend where the ABA was quoted in this story. The article by Ruth Lee Johnson, J.D. was written in response to Professor Kevin Dutton’s book, Wisdom of Psychopaths”. Dutton, a psychologist from University of Oxford, argues that there are “functional psychopaths” who—unlike criminal psychopaths—use their unempathetic, ruthless, and...

Comfortably Numb – Pain and Pleasure in America

Comfortably Numb – Pain and Pleasure in America

Introduction: I have written this essay before under different titles using different words, but the essence is the same. We have created a society that’s become intolerant of any pain and yet suffering is occurring everywhere. The discipline that goes with being great has been replaced with a push button, an air conditioning society. In the human body, there’s a mechanism called pain that warns the brain using the central nervous system that there’s a problem. It can be as small as a thorn in our foot from walking through our yard barefooted to something as a serious experiencing internal pain near our heart or another organ. Since Y2K, we have established policies and laws in response to the painful actions of 9/11 that led to two wars started around the world...

Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Committee on Colleges responds to my formal complaint against USA.

Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Committee on Colleges responds to my formal complaint against USA.

November 2, 2017 While I disagree with almost every aspect of SACS COC’s investigation and their findings into my formal complaint of misconduct by administrators at the University of South Alabama including their justification to threaten me with arrest, if I step onto their campus, again. I watched the events unfold before me (from May 15 to September 9) and SACS COC didn’t. Apparently, I failed to explain what happened in a meaningful way that rose to some level that would trigger a worthwhile investigation much less violations against the school. While President Waldrop said, “no” someone else, a faculty member, thought my project was worthy enough to have a Student Center official email me for a tour of their meeting rooms. What I found most...

How Do You Fire Your Lawyer and Get Your Money Back?

How Do You Fire Your Lawyer and Get Your Money Back?

“…your lawyer is nevertheless obligated to fulfill the task that you’ve set before him or her. If he or she proves to be unwilling or unable to do so, you have the legal right to sever your relationship…” October 11, 2017 G.

Seven years and counting…

Seven years and counting…

Note: The following letter was written by me and reviewed by my attorney, for her approval, to be submitted by her to the appropriate probate court judge, in Louisiana. I’m a believer that everything in life is a learning opportunity whether its a big problem or a small one. This is highly personally, but I choose to share it with you because its the nature of this writer. Maybe someone in this audience is struggling with a similar problem involving a lawsuit, the lawyers and/or the judge. While I’m not a lawyer there’s no one else involved in this case who has a better understanding of the subject matter, my adversary, than me. He’s my 74-year-old uncle, a practicing Louisiana attorney who was recently stripped of his executor-ship over...
