County Bans Screaming Orgasm, Vets Screwed

September 22, 2008

About twice a year, a good old boy named J.O. Batten runs an “Old School Biker Rodeo Party in the Pasture” in his own private pasture in Hernando County, Florida.

Batten is about as good natured as a man can be. He put up with Paris Hilton and Nicole Ritchie living with him in 2004 for the second season of the “reality” television show The Simple Life. When he was younger, Batten also put up with a tour of duty in the Marine Corps in Vietnam.

Where The Money Goes

Most of the proceeds from his “Party in the Pasture” go to a foundation that Batten and two other good Americans have started. It is called the DD-214 Foundation and Batten’s partners in this endeavor are “DonV” Varrieur, who publishes a little magazine named Scootergoods, and a gentleman named “Chickenman” Morrison. If you do not know what a DD-214 is you probably don’t need to know. It is not important. It is just a veteran’s thing.

The last time Batten held his rodeo he hosted 2,200 guests and the next week he donated the profits, $11,000, to the Marine Corps League. The money went to veterans who were disabled or who were otherwise in distress.

Six months before that, the DD-214 Foundation donated another $10,069 in profits from the party in J.O.’s pasture. That money bought gasoline and airline tickets for visits from veteran’s families, bought food for veterans and paid veteran’s utility bills.

It is just a simple charity. The beneficiaries of these grants are screened by the James A. Haley Veterans Hospital in Tampa and the Hernando County, Florida office of the Veterans Administration.

The Fun Part

Well, actually, it is a little more than only a charity. Just about everybody who has ever attended one of these parties has had a good time. These events hearken back to an earlier, simpler time; a time when it was a lot less work and a lot more fun to be a damn outlaw.

The beer at these things is cheap. The tee shirts are inexpensive. There are stupid bike games and burnouts and lots of women who are just a little bit on the trashy side. It is an adults only event.

Our Socially Inept Masters

It is not an event for the kind of people who run every local government in America. Anyone who has ever watched a local government govern, either in person or on public access television, knows what a local government is.

Local government is the same pathetic people who ran your Junior High student council, wasting two or three perfectly pleasant evenings a week making really boring, irrelevant and barely intelligible speeches at each other. Talk, talk, talk, talk, talk. Then, from time to time, they pass a law that the police then get to make all the rest of us obey.

Now, whether this is or this is not what Thomas Jefferson had in mind when he wrote his declaration is not what you need to know here.

Now They Know

All you need to know is that local government finally found out what the bikers in J.O. Batten’s pasture have been up to the last couple of years. Somebody told them it was about “beer, tits and biker shenanigans.” Oh no!

And then, as if that wasn’t bad enough, they found out about the “screaming orgasm contest.” Somebody put a 27 second video of one of the contestants up on You Tube. And, the Hernando County local government found it.

This video features an attractive, young woman with waist-long, blonde hair. She is wearing a pair of cutoff jeans and a tube top and she is vigorously humping all inhibition out of some sort of a saddle. It might be a motorcycle saddle. She raises a microphone to her mouth and screams in self-deprecating, mock passion.

Baby You Are The Best

Someone off camera says something like, “Baby, it don’t normally happen that fast.”

But, the attractive, young blonde ignores him. She rises, reverses her position and proceeds to once again make whatever the hell it is that she is humping the happiest whatever it is in the Sunshine State. One cannot help but conclude that if this blonde really likes a guy and he buys her dinner, then afterward, for dessert, he is probably going to have a real good night.


“Whoa!” Hernando County Commissioner Diane Rowden told the St. Petersburg Times about the video. “Um, I’m breathless,” Rowden added cryptically. “This is a first.”

It is impossible to tell from the Times account whether Ms. Rowden is actually outraged or whether she has just then decided that she needs to make some changes in her life -that she has to stop attending these stupid, local government meetings and instead go find herself a man that owns a leather jacket and join all of us on the dark side. Open minded, good hearted men might be inclined to think that even if she is now outraged all Ms. Rowden needs to change her mind is a good, long, hard motorcycle ride.

Clearly Illegal

However there is no mistaking the County Commission’s intent to run Batten and his DD-214 Foundation out of business. In 2002, Hernando County banned public nudity, and the county attorney has gone on record as saying Batten’s party violates that ban, even if it is held in Batten’s own private pasture, because the adult general public is invited and if you want to get in you have to pay $10.

This week, the county is threatening Batten with a $15,000 fine if he goes ahead with the party he has scheduled for this Halloween weekend.

And, Batten has appealed. He is scheduled to appear before the Commissioners tomorrow, September 23.

    A trust betrayed?

    The Chief Judge of Congress’s Court of Veterans Appeals stated that the, “Constitution, Statutes and Regulations” are “policy freely ignored” by both “The Veterans Health Administration” and the Secretary of the Department of Veterans Affairs (DVA), i.e.., the “STATE OF COURT” transcript PARAGRAPH 9 with Congress’s law of the land U.S. CODE, TITLE 38, SECTIONS (§) 511 and § 7252. Decisions of the Secretary; finality; REFERENCES [1], [2] & [3]. This is a no teeth Congressional LEGISLATIVE vs an independent from Congress and the DVA, Judicial Branch Court. The DVA Health Care laymen, “initial adjudicators” still are not held responsible for their “freely ignored” and medically ignorant “Schedule of Ratings for Disabilities” decisions..

    An example of the “initial adjudicators” to date “freely ignored” is this veterans 1957 DVA Physician’s resultant, “MPerR PERMANENT” “SURGEON HQ ARRC JUN 25 ‘58 MEDICALLY DISQUALIFIED FOR MILITARY SERVICE”!

    It is now 15 years later without the Chief Judge’s 1994 advised Congressional oversight. Please hold your U.S. House and Senate members accountable for Congress’s perverted Veteran Care.


    [1] The complete 16 paragraph “STATE OF COURT” transcript is available on request. Previously at, and now missing from the Chief Judges and state_of_court sites: and







    OCTOBER 17-18, 1994

    {as it appears in Veterans Appeals Reporter}”

    ——————–PARAGRAPH 9 of 16 in “STATE OF COURT” TRANSCRIPT records DVA laymen ignoring medical opinion without veteran recourse.—————————–

    “I believe my message is clear. There is, I suggest, no system with judicial review which has within it a component part free to function in its own way, in its own time and with one message to those it disappoints — take an appeal. That is, I am afraid, what we have today in many of the Department’s Agencies of Original Jurisdiction — that is AOJs — around the country. Neither the Court, through the Board, the Board, nor the General Counsel has direct and meaningful control over the Agencies of Original Jurisdiction. Indeed, it is also clear that the VHA — the Veterans Health Administration — ignores specific directives to provide medical opinions as directed. And this is resulting in unconscionable delays. Let us examine judicial review. Remember, the Court and the Board do not make policy, the Secretary and Congress do. The Court simply identifies error made below by a failure to adhere, in individual cases, to the Constitution, statutes, and regulations which themselves reflect policy — policy freely ignored by many initial adjudicators whose attitude is, “I haven’t been told by my boss to change. If you don’t like it — appeal it.” (Emphasis added)

    The top medically ignorant “boss” is Congress’s confirmed “Secretary” of the DVA.

    AND THE CONGRESS’S “policy freely ignored” UNITED STATES CODE law of the land, Health Care take away from Veterans:

    § 511. Decisions of the Secretary; finality…11—-000-.html

    “(a) The Secretary shall decide all questions of law and fact necessary to a decision by the Secretary under a law that affects the provision of benefits by the Secretary to veterans or the dependents or survivors of veterans. Subject to subsection (b), THE DECISION OF THE SECRETARY AS TO ANY SUCH QUESTION SHALL BE FINAL AND CONCLUSIVE AND MAY NOT BE REVIEWED BY ANY OTHER OFFICIAL OR BY ANY COURT, whether by an action in the nature of mandamus or otherwise.” (Emphasis added)

    THEREFORE, NO COURT REVIEW OF THE MEDICALLY UNTRAINED DVA laymen and “Secretary” “schedule of ratings for disabilities” decisions as proven by:

    § 7252. Jurisdiction; finality of decisions

    “(b) Review in the Court shall be on the record of proceedings before the Secretary and the Board. The extent of the review shall be limited to the scope provided in section 7261 of this title. THE COURT MAY NOT REVIEW THE SCHEDULE OF RATINGS FOR DISABILITIES adopted under section 1155 of this title or any action of the Secretary in adopting or revising that schedule.” (Emphasis added.)
