Read: expired drink tickets

Sunday, November 24, 2013

One scam here at the Aria hotel casino, is they give “free drink tickets” when you make Sportsbet but they don’t tell you the coupons expire the same day.

RANT: Detroit will hurt EVERYONE

Guest Post: Detroit’s Bankruptcy WILL Bite You In the Wallet
By Editor on July 20, 2013

*** begin quote ***

All this isn’t even taking into account the rampant corruption, bribes, and ulterior motives that every municipal government is crawling with – those are self-explanatory. Fast-forward a few decades and the politicians who planted the seeds of decay are long gone in one way or another – but now the municipality cannot afford its obligations. Losses on poorly planned projects, debt, and exorbitant employee compensation eat up most of its revenue, and it can no longer afford to provide the essential public services every resident counts on.

*** end quote ***

See that is the essence of the problem.

Folks want “free lunch”, but there ain’t none.

Detroit is what happens when the bill comes due.

And they Sheeple and Clover there have voted Democratic for 50 years. (Not that the R’s would be MUCH better.)

Like the Delta pilots, everyone’s getting a haircut.

Unfortunately, a promise is worth what backs it up.

On Wall Street, they have a name for it — “Counterparty risk”.

Sorry to say, but you depend on Gooferment, politicians, and bureaucrats at your own peril.

TINFOILHAT: Deconstructing the BHO44 legend

THE BIGGEST HUSTLE IN HUMAN HISTORY

*** begin quote ***

Obama applied for a position as an adjunct and wasn’t even considered. A few weeks later the law school got a phone call from the Board of Trustees telling them to find him an office, put him on the payroll, and give him a class to teach. The Board told him he didn’t have to be a member of the faculty, but they needed to give him a temporary position. He was never a professor and was hardly an adjunct.

The other professors hated him because he was lazy, unqualified, never attended any of the faculty meetings, and it was clear that the position was nothing more than a political stepping stool. According to my professor friend, he had the lowest intellectual capacity in the building. He also doubted whether he was legitimately an editor on the Harvard Law Review, because if he was, he would be the first and only editor of an Ivy League law review to never be published while in school (publication is or was a requirement).

*** end quote ***

So who on the BoT made that call and who pressured them?

Enquiring minds want to know!

GOVEROTRAGEOUS: $46,378,040 / 23,994 = stupidity

Tuesday, June 25, 2013

http://www.wnd.com/2013/06/irs-refunds-46378040-to-23994-illegals-at-1-address/?cat_orig=us

YOUR GOVERNMENT AT WORK
IRS REFUNDS $46,378,040 TO 23,994 ILLEGALS AT 1 ADDRESS
Agency also assigned 15,796 taxpayer IDS to ‘unauthorized aliens’ at single residence
Published: 1 hour ago

*** begin quote ***

(CNS News) The Internal Revenue Service sent 23,994 tax refunds worth a combined $46,378,040 to “unauthorized” alien workers who all used the same address in Atlanta, Ga., in 2011, according to the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration (TIGTA). That was not the only Atlanta address theoretically occupied by thousands of “unauthorized” alien workers receiving millions in federal tax refunds in 2011.

In fact, according to a TIGTA audit report published last year, four of the top ten addresses to which the IRS sent thousands of tax refunds to “unauthorized” aliens were in Atlanta.

*** end quote ***

Are you kidding me?

Let VISA do that and there would be a ton of executives getting fired.

Didn’t I just read that the IRS was getting bonuses?

Think Before You Donate!

I realize what folks do with their money is their own business, but felt this was informative and might prove helpful.

As you open your pockets to do a good thing and make yourself feel good, please keep the following facts in mind:

The American Red Cross
President and CEO Marsha J. Evans’
salary for the year was $651,957 plus expenses

March of Dimes
It is called the March of Dimes because only a dime for every 1 dollar is given to the needy.

The United Way
President Brian Gallagher
receives a $375,000 base salary along with numerous expense benefits.

UNICEF
CEO Caryl M. Stern receives
$1,200,000 per year (100k permonth) plus all expenses including a ROLLS ROYCE.
Less than 5 cents of your donated dollar goes to the cause.

Goodwill
CEO and owner Mark Curran profits $2.3 million a year.
Goodwill is a very catchy name for his business.
You donate to his business and then he sells the items for PROFIT. He pays nothing for his products and pays his workers minimum wage! Nice Guy.
$0.00 goes to help anyone!
Stop giving to this man.

Instead, give it to any of the following go “green” and put your money where it will do some good:

The Salvation Army
Commissioner, Todd Bassett receives a small salary of only $13,000 per year(plus housing) for managing this $2 billion dollar organization.
96 percent of donated dollars go to the cause.

The American Legion
National Commander receives a $0.00 zero salary.
Your donations go to help Veterans and their families and youth!

The Veterans of Foreign Wars
National Commander receives a$0.00 zero salary.

Your donations go to help Veterans and their families and youth!

The Vietnam Veterans Association
National Commander receives a $0.00 zero salary. Your donations go to help Veterans and their families and youth!

Make a Wish
For children’s last wishes.
100% goes to funding trips or special wishes for a dying child.

St. Jude Research Hospital
100% goes towards funding and helping Children with Cancer who have no insurance and cannot afford to pay.

Ronald McDonald Houses
All monies go to running the houses for parents who have critical Children in the hospital.
100% goes to housing, and feeding the families.

Shriner’s Hospitals for Children
100% of donations go to pay for research and treatment of children with defromities and burns.
There is no outside support from Government or Foundations, only through generous donations. The costs are nearly 2 million dollars per day to operate the 22 orthopedic and burns hospitals around the world.

Please share this with everyone you can.

TINFOILHAT: BHO44 targets IRS/401Ks

Thursday, April 25, 2013

http://online.wsj.com/article/SB10001424127887324050304578412932073225110.html?mod=wsj_share_tweet

REVIEW & OUTLOOK
Updated April 12, 2013, 12:13 p.m. ET

Now He’s After Your 401(k)
The White House pulls a switcheroo on retirement savings accounts.

*** begin quote ***

Thus do our political betters now feel free to define for everyone what is “needed” for a “reasonable” retirement. Not to be impertinent, but does this White House definition include being able to afford summers at age 70 at Martha’s Vineyard near the Obamas?

The feds may think $3 million is all you need after a lifetime of work, but that’s roughly the value of a California police sergeant’s pension if she works for 30 years, retires at age 50 and lives to normal life expectancy.

Out in the private economy, people generally have to work longer than that before they retire, and some of them do manage to save significant amounts. We’re talking about people who work for decades and abstain from buying the bigger house or the new car so they can contribute the maximum to their 401(k)s or IRAs. The people who defer gratification and build a nest egg to avoid becoming a burden on their kids or their fellow taxpayers. The people whose savings finance productive enterprise. You know, the bad guys.

*** and ***

The Administration’s political motive here is two-fold: First, it’s a redistributionist play and a revenue grab. But for many on the left it’s also about reducing the ability of individuals to make themselves independent of the state. They have always disliked IRAs, just as they oppose health-savings accounts, because over time they make Americans less dependent on federal entitlements or transfer payments. 

*** end quote ***

Yeah, I know you all think I have a tin foil hat! So what.

Now the Wall Street Journal is in the same genre?

My concern is this is the first step towards exchanging your IRA/401K for an “enhanced social security benefit”.

I read somewhere that there is 14T$ in such plans. Held and controlled by ~2100 “custodians”. And the Gooferment needs about 13T$ to get back on an even keel.

Remember what happened in Cyprus?

Yeah, and I have a tin foil hat.

Argh!

POLITICAL: Taxation Is Theft

Tuesday, April 23, 2013

Taxation Is Theft
by Andrew P. Napolitano

*** begin quote *** 

With a tax code that exceeds 72,000 pages in length and consumes more than six billion person hours per year to determine taxpayers’ taxable income, with an IRS that has become a feared law unto itself, and with a government that continues to extract more wealth from every taxpaying American every year, is it any wonder that April 15th is a day of dread in America? Social Security taxes and income taxes have dogged us all since their institution during the last century, and few politicians have been willing to address these ploys for what they are: theft.

*** end quote ***

This is a Libertarian mantra!

“Taxation Is Theft”

Coke versus Pepsi. McD’s versus Burger King. HomeDepot versus Lowes.

I get a choice.

With Gooferment, no choice. I have to pay for everything — even if it’s morally reprehensible, even if I don’t want it, even if I can’t use it.

Why? Because some number of Sheeple, politicians, or bureaucrats decide what’s good for me.

Wrong!

I may make bad choices, but they are MY choices!

Argh!
