"I hope we shall crush in its birth the aristocracy of our monied corporations which dare already to challenge our government to a trial by strength, and bid defiance to the laws of our country." - Thomas Jefferson


My husband never recovered from his massive coronary, the cause of his death in 1989. He was tormented by the havoc CPC created for him and his family, but he remained convinced CPC and its lawyers would eventually pay a high price for their "utter cowardice and greed." His business experience, moral integrity, and law school training were invaluable to Skippy, Inc. , as was his dedication to the memory and courage of my father, whose tragic years as a political prisoner moved him deeply. His greatest anguish was at the rank betrayal of the attorneys we hired and paid to expose fraud and CPC's Skippy criminal enterprise, who remained silent in the face of a clear duty to speak and inform federal authorities of fraud on the government. Waldo believed that the suppression of liberty and truth cannot succeed in a civilized society.

He was inspired by the following excerpt from Judge Learned Hand's famous speech, "The Spirit of Liberty":

"...The spirit of liberty is the spirit which is not too sure it is right; the spirit of liberty is the spirit which seeks to understand the minds of other men and women; the spirit of liberty is the spirit which weighs their interests alongside its own without bias; the spirit of liberty remembers that not even a sparrow falls to earth unheeded; the spirit of liberty is the spirit of Him who, near two thousand years ago, taught mankind that lesson it has never learned, but has never quite forgotten; that there may be a kingdom where the least shall be heard and considered side by side with the greatest."
Judge Learned Hand - 1944

Immediately after the release of this web site, CPC filed a motion in court to silence Joan Crosby Tibbetts from publishing the true story of Skippy.
