Judge grants request for Amicus Curiae Brief filing, Obama eligibility, Commonwealth of Virginia, Attorney General Kenneth Cuccinelli

From The Post & Email October 8, 2010.
“Last March The Post & Email reported on an “Admission of Ineligibility” declared by a Florida man after he charged Barack Hussein Obama with “negligence” for failing to answer his request that Obama prove he is a natural born Citizen and therefore qualified to hold the office of President of the United States.

Mr. W. Spencer Connerat III, the author of the document which he deemed a “confession,” had originally sent it to the attorneys general of Florida and Virginia last March in the likely event that either or both of them decided to file a lawsuit over the impending passage of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA).  Some have referred to the legislation as “Obamacare,” and its constitutionality has been debated since long before its passage.

Attorney General Kenneth Cuccinelli, on behalf of the Commonwealth of Virginia, filed suit against Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius directly after the legislation was passed by Congress on March 23, 2010.  A group of more than 20 states filed a similar lawsuit led by Attorney General Bill McCollum of Florida.”

“On September 21, 2010, Judge Hudson granted Mr. Connerat’s motion to file an Amicus Curiae brief to be included in the Virginia lawsuit along with many others filed by interested parties, including Physician Hospitals of America, former U.S. Attorney General Edwin Meese III, and the American Civil Rights Union.”

  1. This Amicus is a brilliant way to get the issue of bo’s ineligibility before the Court. bo is headed for a major smack down before SCOTUS.

    However, our work is just beginning. It is now evident that criminals have infiltrated our government at all levels from DC to States and local Counties. In order to take our Country back, we will have to root out all the criminal politicians by the Grand Jury process.

    Dr. Sam Sewell: “I think CGJ is the quickest, most effective, and most practical way to clean up government corruption. I have yet to see a viable argument against that premise.”

    Justice Antonin Scalia: “…In fact, the whole theory of its (the Grand Jury) function is that it belongs to no branch of the institutional Government, serving as a kind of buffer or referee between the Government and the people

    Justice Lewis Powell ruled:“ Such an (Grand Jury) investigation may be triggered by tips, rumors… or the personal knowledge of the grand jurors.”

    Mark Levin: “The possibility of impeachment does not immunize the president from criminal prosecution. He remains, at all times, a citizen of the United States who is answerable to the law.”

    Abraham Lincoln: “We the people are the rightful masters of both Congress and the courts, not to overthrow the Constitution but to overthrow the men who pervert the Constitution.”

  3. In those States that allow presentment to the County Grand Jury, Patriots should take their criminal information of crimes by local bo co-conspirators directly to the Grand Jury Foreman.

    In States where presentment is not accepted, then Patriots should form their own Grand Juries or do as Mr. Neil Turner did and demand that local politicians do their duty and present evidence of crimes in their counties by bo’s co-conspirators to the County Grand Jury.

    Imagine the horror felt by Stephanie Janvrin and Johnathon Irish when their newborn baby was kidnapped just 16 hours after her birth. Apparently if a parent has an affiliation with the Oath Keepers it gives the the state the authority to take the child into custody.

    That’s right, the FBI, with no threat or sign of danger, sent bomb sniffing dogs to the protest. The FBI sent a clear message. People that stand up for the rights of American citizens are now possible terrorists. This Nazi like tactic has been used hundreds of times. The goal is to get the local media to connect the protest to a bomb threat in order to scare citizens who would normally support the parents into keeping their mouths shut.

  20. Philo,

    The loss of monies from taxpayers really – as politely explainable on my behalf – pisses me off.

    In the private business sector, ruled and governed by the same politicians that passed the bills for us to implement hefty accounting procedures, costly to say the least, at our behast, (past to the consumers of course) must have accounted for every penny incured, yes, to the cents.

    Allow me, William, to lose a mere 100 grand of company money, out of the billions, and see my butt go to prison or at the least a heavy corporate fine and loss of my job.

    However, when that same government that posed such strict accounting practices on us, yet alleviate and exempt themseleves from those same laws of accountability, I have a problem such notion.

    Allow me the levy to lose billions of un-accounted dollars with the excuse “I’ll look into the matter”….

    Just saying ….. double standards.

  22. Philo,

    Now that Cabby AZ is present for the Time being, he is most apt to respond to double standard accounting practices which differ from the Government accounting practices collecting and spending our monies collected v. The private company strick procedures.

    They are in fact night and day.

    As for those unaware, Cabby AZ is a CPA and has worked as a Corporate Accountant.

    Proud to Cabby AZ a friend.

  23. Sir William –
    Reading Old Salt’s response to you jogged my brain (overworked lately with heavy tax work due Oct. 15th) about your request of me concerning your resume.

    I, too, am no longer in the position of having contacts that would benefit you, since I’ve outworked most of my clients – Ha – and no longer live in an area that has any work possibilities in your field; however, I will make a suggestion that you may have already used. That is, send your resume, with the appropriate cover letter, to various CPA firms, starting in the area(s) in which you wish to live. Start with the Big Four, which have offices around the country. My old alma mater, Deloitte & Touche, is one of them. Ernst & Young, PricewaterhouseCoopers, and KPMG are the others. Look them up on the internet for addresses. Even go to the local CPA firms, which could give leads. I can’t take the time to look up anything right now.

    The reason for going to accounting firms, is because they have clients which may have openings in your area of expertise. I know that they do “help” clients in that respect, or, at least, they did when I was employed. Don’t give up. As Old Salt advised you – stay the course, as somebody out there could use you. I wish you the very best!

  24. OldSalt,

    That you for your review, it most respected and reserved as dearly appreciated. Personally speaking, I never give up a good fight or worthy cause.

    And neither do you.

    Your Friend and Fellow American Patriot,

    William (Bill) Richardson

  26. Cabby AZ,

    Thanks for your responce as well.

    I was open to the possiblity of “hitting” alternative avenues, never giving up. I was also open to suggestions of resume review for changes. It is always best to have more than one set of eyes, which was additional to my premise.

    Yes, we are all extremely overloaded, some more so than others. Good luck on your 3rd Qrt reports, as this is an overwhelming time for accountants. I had forgotten about timeline for you, which would explain your absense above nominal posting.

    Take care.

These guys have lost all sense of morality.

    When our alleged leaders have dropped so low they have lost all sense of civility, then we the people had better take heed and start preparing for the worst which is coming very fast. Start planning for your family, store emergency equipment, hide your assets, lie to the government, store food to last six months to a year and hide it from the government. Hide your vehicles and hide your guns, ask nothing of the government. Work on making yourself disappear. World War III will be here in 2012 and I believe it will be fought on American soil.

    “THE TEN COMMANDMENTS”
    THE LAW AND SIN
    Man’s Inability to keep the Moral Law
    By Thomas Watson

    http://christianbookshelf.org/watson/the_ten_commandments/3_1_mans_inability_to_keep.htm

    Excerpt:

    “If a man has no power to keep the whole moral law, why does God require it of him? Is this justice?

    Though man has lost his power of obeying, God has not lost his right of commanding. If a master entrusts a servant with money to lay out, and the servant spends it dissolutely, may not the master justly demand it? God gave us power to keep the moral law, which by tampering with sin, we lost; but may not God still call for perfect obedience, or, in case of default, justly punish us?

    Why does God permit such an inability in man to keep the law?

    He does it: (1) To humble us. Man is a self-exalting creature; and if he has but anything of worth, he is ready to be puffed up; but when he comes to see his deficiencies and failings, and how far short he comes of the holiness and perfection which God’s law requires, it pulls down the plumes of his pride, and lays them in the dust; he weeps over his inability; he blushes over his leprous spots; he says with Job, I abhor myself in dust and ashes.’ (2) God lets this inability be upon us, that we may have recourse to Christ to obtain pardon for our defects, and to sprinkle our best duties with his blood. When a man sees that he owes perfect obedience to the law, but has nothing to pay, it makes him flee to Christ to be his friend, and answer for him all the demands of the law, and set him free in the court of justice.”

    Many people who are currently in charge of the USA government and many governments of the earth are ungodly & are acting outside of God’s Laws, & outside of God’s Holy Will of Virtues, Righteousness, Justice, Truth, Wisdom & Love, & they are unfortunately out of control sinners against GOD and humanity. Today in our age, many people who are employed in the USA government are acting like ungodly gangsters, thugs, totalitarian dictators, and serial criminals. oldsalt79 said yesterday that he can see that the near future will bring terrible times, & great suffering & will be very difficult for people.

    This is why I am posting Holy Bible passages everywhere I can to call people to come to the LORD GOD for help, protection, and salvation in these times on earth that we are living in.

    I met a lady yesterday who said he voted for Obama & will again “because he is a black man.” Apparently, this is the major reason she has for voting for him! (She is black.) Poor lady. I told her “Barack Obama is a massive serial criminal. Barack Obama is not even a legal USA American citizen.
    CurrentBarack obama is an illegal alien & he is an Indonesian citizen who is daily working to destroy & to overthrow the USA government from within. I am praying that GOD allows Obama/Soetoro to be immediately arrested so he can be held accountable for & face his:
    1. Daily Massive Ungodly Serial Crime Spree in the USA.
    2 His arrogant mocking of GOD on earth & his Daily Massive Serial Lies he is intentionally saying to ALL American people Daily on earth.
    3. Be held accountable for & face his attacks of War on the USA as a Foreign Born Domestic Enemy Terrorist on ALL 310 Million Americans & the USA & the USA Rule Of Laws in the USA Constitution.
    4. Find himself in court in front of a just judge in the USA who will hold this Con-man Madman Barry Soetoro Soebarkah alias Barack H. Obama II accountable for using the USA Treasury as his own piggybank by stealing TRILLIONS of dollars from the USA Treasury to give as political paybacks to his co-workers in crimes.
    5. I also want to see Soetoro held accountable in a court of law for all of his Massive Daily Serial High Crimes, Felonies, Seditions, & Treasons he is committing in the USA as he is working with other foreign & domestic enemies of the USA to Overthrow & Destroy The USA Government and he must be stopped.

    ALL Americans should ask GOD in prayer in the Holy Name of Jesus to stop the Illegal Alien, Foreign Terrorist, Serial Criminal Usurper, Barry Soetoro Soebarkah AKA Obama and his co-horts from completing the Overthrow & Destruction of the USA Rule Of Law in the Constitution & the USA Government.

    This Amicus is a brilliant way to get the issue of bo’s ineligibility before the Court. bo is headed for a major smack down before SCOTUS.
    * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *
    Until this last year, I used to regard the SCOTUS as the most sacred branch of our government. In my naïveté, I believed these men were selected because of their legal experience and loyalty the constitution and the preservation of the Republic as written in the first contracts between “we the people” and government. While I believed there were a few corrupt judges here and there in the rest of the judicial system, I never believed practically the entire judicial system was in the cess pool from top to bottom.

    Let’s see. Who is on the SCOTUS— Chief Justice, John Roberts. Associate Justices, Samuel Alito, Stephen Breyer, Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Elena Kagan, Anthony Kennedy, Antonin Scalia, Sonia Sotomayor, Clarence Thomas.
    Elena Kagan who was responsible for dismissing approximately 18 Obama eligibility cases who now has to recuse herself from 25 or more cases is our most recent disappointment appointment. So that leaves only 8 left. In the event of a tie the decision will go in favor of the appellate court. Then there is the LaRaza Communist, Sonia Sotomayer another Sotoero appointee. She would never admit Barry is ineligible. Ruth Bader Ginsberg is appearing to become senile and looks as if she’s heading for Alzheimer’s. Chief Justice John Roberts swore the usurper in without ever showing one iota of interest whether or not Steve Dunham qualified under Article II of the constitution. Later Dr. Taitze in the heat of her effort to get the Supremes to hear the imposter’s case on merit gave Justice Roberts a card board box filled with her briefs and documentation. It might be that Roberts may have to recuse himself if the case is ever heard. Clarence Thomas has already admitted the SCOTUS have been avoiding Sotoero’s eligibility issue. I don’t know where that puts him. While Scalia may seem the brightest and offer the most hope, I really don’t know about the rest. To me SCOTUS has become a sorry lot of rag tag judges more interested in keeping their glorified jobs than administering justice. Thus I named them the nine “dishonorables.”

    Sometimes I feel the worst thing that could happen is that Obama’s eligibility case is finally heard on its merits by SCOTUS. I fear it because these cowardly Judas’ who sold our a long time ago for 30 pieces of silver will use the case to administer justice based upon the dictates of the Constitution but will convolute the entire meaning of Article II and LEGITIMIZE BARACK HUSSEIN OBAMA BY CLAIMING HE IS ELIGIBLE. IF THAT HAPPENS, OUR LAST HOPE FOR JUSTICE RENDERED ON BEHALF OF THE AMERICAN PEOPLE WILL BE CRUSHED FOREVER.

    “OH SINNER MAN, WHERE YOU GONNA RUN TO?”

    WE THE PEOPLE ARE LEFT WITH ONLY ONE ACT—REVOLUTION!

    Once upon a time I had a poor black tenant rent from me. When she could no longer afford to pay the rent because her welfare money was decreased she had to move. She couldn’t pay her water bill. I paid it for her and helped her as best I can.

    When I mentioned to her many of her problems we a result of President Obama, she denied it. She said; Barack Obama is the president because God put him there and Obama can do no wrong without God’s permission. Therefore God approves of Obama. That kind of blind faith and triblaism–because black supports black no matter is what we are facing with black America today. Remember a very large percentage of black people do not believe OJ Simpson murdered Nicole and Ron Goldman. Manyh black people are outraged OJ is sitting in a Nevada jail.

    To read and further understand the facts, I would advise you to read Dr. Walter Williams at his GMU website.

    An African American at 78 years old, And more Educational Degree’s than I can list here, coupled with personal experience, it is difficult to disagree with his analysis.

    Google Dr. Walter Williams, at his home page at GMU (George Mason University) review his weekly articles as they go back year by year, month by month, week by week. Well over a decade worth of insight.

    When the judges and Congress are not upholding and obeying the rules of Law, and are overthrowing the USA Rules of Law & the USA Constitution, they must be overthrown, thrown out of office, and removed.

    This will be the REVOLUTION that must take place in the USA if the USA will survive – to overthrow and remove the ungodly gangsters, thugs, and Daily Serial Criminals who are refusing to obey the laws in the USA and who are subverting and overthrowing the USA Constitution and the USA government.

    Thank-you for your devoted personal time keeping us up-to-speed on the Gulf Oil Spill.

    As of recent, the Soetoro Admin wishes us to believe its all over, all taken care of, no worries, nothing here, move along, he hs taken care of and resolved the situation, let’s move forward, there are more important issues in the world, let’s not focus on this, there is a war ongoing, replace your thoughts too higher issues……ect…

    Did I cover ALL of Gibbs and this Failed Admins excuses? I am confident I did not mention them entirely.

    Thanks to individuals such as freeSpeech, patriotic without selfishness, keeps us abay and informed.

    Since this will not be relently absent as the Government wishes – the Patriots refuse to let wavier excusively – then they must ultimately answer, disputeful as expected, nevertheless accountable for exposure forthright of leadership as proclaims.

    Which is it? There, or not there? Lack of, or plentiful? Trustful in Expert Enviornmental and University reseach, or lack of trust?

    What I do know, is my appreciation of those individual patriots (and there are many of us) which assist me in alternative means to keep myself and others informed; a heads-up if you will.

    Therefore, for this statement, if I may begin an honor, I personally Award FreeSpeech with the Kudos Medal, for never deviating away from the Oil Diasaster and keeping us informed.

    Great Job FreeSpeech,

    Ps. (By not forgetting and letting it go, the admin is back-tracking, with more to come)….

    Socialism creates dependency.
    Dependency results in votes for those who promise the most.
    Votes win elections.
    Elections give power including power to tax.
    Taxes provide the means to redistribute the wealth to the dependent.
    Redistribution perpetuates socialism, creates more dependency, more taxes and eventually destroys.

    It has become fashionable to speak of a Democratic comeback, but we’re not really seeing one in our forecasting models. Certainly there are some individual races — particularly on the East and West Coasts, as well as some gubernatorial contests outside these regions — that look better for Democrats than they did a few weeks ago. But we’re showing Republicans gaining ground where they need to gain it to maintain decent chances of taking over the Senate. We also show improvement for them in the House forecast this week.

    Here are a few more taxes you might want to add…..
    We love you Obama, Nancy and Harry

    Health Law’s Heavy impact
    Hidden Real Estate Sales tax in Health care bill – Surprise!

    By Dr. Laurie Roth Tuesday, September 14, 2010
    Hidden Real Estate Sales tax in Health care bill – Surprise!There are already at least 20 hidden taxes in the Obama Health care plan coming down upon us the next few years. So, along with rationed care for seniors and forced health insurance, we now find there is a Real Estate Tax snuck into the Health care plan. You may ask, what in God’s green earth does health care have to do with Real Estate taxes??? Absolutely nothing, that is precisely why one got snuck in there.

    There has never been any rhyme or reason to this administration other than redistribution of wealth, socialism and inserting cradle-to-grave control. Using Health care as an excuse for seizing control of accounts and businesses is just one strategy. Obama has also planned all along to use the ‘environment’ i.e. Cap and Trade to take even more. This will do more than take. It will flatten American business and destroy our sick economy. Who cares what the American people think and what the constitution says! We are just in the way…..take, take, take.

    I was forwarded this latest tax scheme by Van Hipp, President of American Defense International and the former Deputy Secretary of the Army under Bush senior and Ronald Reagan. He recommended the well known accountant and expert witness on tax matters, Paul Guppy who wrote a commentary on the various hidden taxes in the Spokesman Review paper, “Health Law’s Heavy impact.”

    Starting in 2013, not only will you pay the closing costs and real estate fee when you sell your house but now you will pay a 3.8% Sales Tax. So, if you sell your home for $400,000, perhaps wanting to down size if you are a senior you will pay $15,200 in Tax.

    Here we have another assault on our seniors again. Many downsize their homes as retirement comes closer, so along with long lines and rationed care that is substandard, seniors and anyone will have to pay more tax on the home they just sold.

    Penalties for individuals: We will pay 2.5% of our annual income as a fine/penalty if we don’t purchase the government approved health care plan.

    Penalties on families: Parents will pay a yearly $347 per kid if they don’t purchase a government approved health care plan.

    Penalties on employers: If you are a business with 50 or more employers you will get fined at least $2,000 per employee if you don’t provide, once again the ‘government approved health care plan.

    Other special taxes and fees:

    Investment income: Anyone making $200,000 or over gets to pay 3.8% of their annual investment income. Start adding up them apples, folks.

    If you have a fancy health care plan and pay as an individual, $10,200 or $27,800 for a family, you get to pay a 40% annual tax on those health care plans.

    Medical aid devices have gotten hit hard as well. They will see a 2.9% tax hike. Sorry if you have an artificial limb….you are screwed.

    Medicare gets more money because if you earn $200,000 or more you pay a special Medicare tax of 3.9.%

    Then there is the 10% tax on tanning….on and on. Perhaps you should consider an ‘Albino’ beauty treatment.

    This Health care bill is nothing but an orgy of controls, tax schemes and rationed care. Now add Real Estate tax to the ridiculous list.

    As the new congress comes in this fall, we must immediately put a Bill through to defund this unconstitutional and unaffordable Health care mess! As soon as we have the votes in the House and the Senate to overcome a Veto by Obama, we should repeal it, gut it and bury it clear to China. While we are at it we should put Bush’s tax cuts back in, destroy any vestiges of Cap and Trade and push toward impeachment of Obama.

    Get the wrecking crew and clean up team ready. Things are getting pretty smelly.

    *********************************
    Just popped in and read the above. Don’t think for one minute I condone ANY new taxes, but I have to correct something that is in error. It is a tax on the GAIN on the sale of the property, and then only if that gain exceeds $250,000 for a single person and $500,000 for a couple. As I said, any of it is bad, but we shouldn’t get it wrong or we lose credibility. Having said that, it is entirely possible if the Dems have their way, they could eliminate the $250,000 and $500,000 floors. The entire Obamacare needs to be repealed. Okay, back to work for me.

  57. The response of the Democrats to Rick Santelli’s ‘Tea Party’ has given us a living interpretation for all to see how King George III must have reacted to the ‘Boston Tea Party!’

    In fact, the reaction of the Pelosi Congress has given us a living interpretation to how the British Parliament must have reacted to the call for ‘No Taxation without Representation!’

    All that I am saying here, is that this country has lived through all this once before when the Brits tried to throw their weight around, and at that time we emerged STRONGER for it all, and many of the losers simply left for Canada!

  58. Our family has owned a business for almost 40 years. I started paying the bills for the business about 6 years ago and I was alarmed to learn the cost to run a business.

    OUR SMALL BUSINESSES PAYS:
    FEDERAL INCOME TAX
    STATE INCOME TAX
    FEDERAL UNEMPLOYMENT TAX
    STATE UNEMPLOYMENT TAX
    7% SOCIAL SECURITY TAX FOR EMPLOYEES
    PROPERTY TAX
    PERSONAL PROPERTY TAX
    UTILITY TAXES ON GAS, ELECTRIC, AND PHONE
    GASOLINE TAX
    SALES TAX TO THE STATE FOR EVERYTHING WE SELL
    APPROXIMATELY 7% SALES TAX ON EVERYTHING WE BUY

    PLUS WE PAY
    MEDICAL INSURANCE
    AUTO INSURANCE
    PROPERTY INSURANCE
    LIABILITY INSURANCE
    WORKMAN’S COMP
    VARIOUS LICENSES AND PERMITS
    I’m sure I’ve forgotten a few things.

    The government gets more of our money than we do. Do you wonder why businesses hire undocumented workers and or just pick up and move out of the country? Think about this the next time you talk to someone in Pakistan about an error on a bill or problem with your internet.

    And now obamacare will tax us more? You’ll see businesses leaving the country droves. It is no wonder that our country’s economy is on a downward spiral.

  59. In the game of chicken that the gov’t has been playing versus WE THE PEOPLE, the people have been threatening for years to “throw the bums out”, the gov’t erred big time this time by installing the dreaded Obama via election fraud in 08, more than half of the party formerly known as Democrat became PUMA, then Tea Party, joining with our fellow Americans-Republicans, Independents, etc. to restore as expeditiously as possible our Constitutional Republic. We will complete our mission on Nov 2 by voting en masse, if we have to do this a couple more election cycles so be it, we intend to end forever incompetent, corrupt, un-representative gov’t. We will hit the ground running and restore fiscal sanity as soon as possible. “In God we Trust”, in the government never-the proof is the Obama admin. cannot trust him or anyone involved with him.

    POLITICSOCTOBER 9, 2010.Democrat Bastions Besieged by GOP .
    Text By NEIL KING JR. And PETER WALLSTEN
    Republican challengers are suddenly threatening once-safe Democrats in New England and the Northwest, expanding the terrain for potential GOP gains and raising the party’s hopes for a significant victory in next month’s elections.
    Republican advances in traditionally Democratic states, including Connecticut, Oregon and Washington, may not translate into a wave of GOP victories. But they have rattled local campaigns and forced the Democrats to shift attention and money to races they didn’t expect to be defending.
    Rising sentiment against the party in power has washed ashore even in coastal Oregon, where Democratic Rep. Peter DeFazio won his 10th re-election two years ago with 82% of the vote.

    The question regarding govt accounting and corporate accounting has not been addressed.

    Whilst it has been more than 10 years since I worked in the Govt sector here in Australia, I can only speak to the Australian experience.

    In the past govt accounting differed from company accounting because govt did not use the accrual accounting methods. They used a cash basis accounting.

    Here in Australia the accounting standards that are applied to the private sector also apply to the government sector. Since I have not been involved with the Australian Society of Accountants for close to a decade, I do not know about the latest standards and requirements. It was always my understanding, however, that there was some kind of consistency throughout the world.

    That being said, I did say “in the past” and this applies only to Australia as I understood the situation. I belonged to the one department (which is now defunct) where accrual accounting was adopted, and that included using the accounting standards. The adoption of accural accounting was still getting under way when we moved from Canberra to Sydney before we moved back again to Canberra. I am therefore out of touch with the current situation.

    That being said, and I am not familiar with the American situation, here in Australia the accounting organisations have liaised with the government with regarding to accounting standards, as well as the requirements set down in corporations law.

  70. JJ | October 9, 2010 at 9:21 pm |

    There is a requirement for some regulation of businesses. However, the problem is over-regulation.

  71. Jonah……………………..
    Here in Indiana, the township in which my son’s business is located also collects an ASSETT tax. This is upon all presses, bindery,and prepress equipment owned outright by the company. This is in addition to all of the taxes,and costs that you addressed. After all the politicians get their cut of YOUR action you are very lucky if you net much over two or three percent of profit. Do you see any incentive for a business owner to remain in business with only a two or three percent profit margin? He could do a lot better putting his money in CDs. Of course that too is no longer the case.That is what the trade union KNOTHEADS can’t understand either. They think the amount billed to a customer is what you get to keep. Once a long time ago one of my pressmen started talking about wanting a union. So I got out the books and told him to take a look. He didn’t know where to even start. He had absolutely NO understanding of business at all. As I said he thought that the amount billed to the customer was what the company got to keep. He also thought that it was the amount that I personally got to keep. This attests to the stupidity of a very large percentage of union people. They think that they should have MORE,MORE,MORE and MORE.Because of their knuckle headed ideas they don’t realise that everytime they get MORE the business is becoming LESS,and LESS competitive against it’s competitors. When you start trading dollars you are better off to close up. One of the biggest costs in the production of automobiles is the cost of labor,and the Healthcare, a very large percentage of which is paid by the company. Ford is one of the companies that still pays nearly the entire cost of healthcare for it’s RETIREES. Guess who really pays that cost. Whenever you buy a NEW car you are paying for a significant portion of the companie’s healthcare cost of it’s RETIRED people. As of a couple of years ago the cost was approximately $1500.00 of the cost that you paid for the vehicle. I stopped buying new vehicles. I look around and try to find used two year old vehicles. The largest portion of the depreciation is gone,and the vehicle still has a reasonable expected service life. Much cheaper to own,and drive.

  72. To sir william:

    As I have been taking more interest in what is happening in the USA I have been shocked at the way in which legislation is put together and especially how unrelated matters are attached to bills.

    In my view, this is one big downfall with the American system. It is something that needs to be cleaned up.

    As I just pointed out to JJ, some regulation is needed. Most of it should be at the State, and not the federal level. I see the need for regulation with regard to the following:
    1. worker health and safety. There needs to be some regulation on this because there should be a mechanism to fine employers who are careless with regard to workplace accidents – I am talking about cutting corners and using unsafe equipment etc.
    2. consumer protection laws – there needs to be legislation in place so that consumers have the right to sue when the pay for goods that are not of merchantable quality – including cars that turn out to be lemons.
    3. corporation laws that protect the investor and the consumer. There are many examples where protection is required.

    There are a lot of areas where there is over-regulation including pollution requirements. Again, some is necessary to ensure clean air, but this “climate change” stuff is crap and will do nothing.

    Accounting standards are also necessary in order to prevent fraud, and to ensure good corporate governance.

    However, in the USA there needs to be an effort to simplify legislation. The Abominablecare bill with its 2000 pages is ridiculous. Ditto the finance regulations. In fact an economist by the name of Rogoff who is at Harvard and is ex-IMF had a few things to say about the number of pages etc.

  73. oldsalt79 | October 9, 2010 at 10:35 pm |

    Oldsalt you make excellent points. Heaven forbid if Australia went the same way and started charging an asset tax!! That is just ludicrous.

    Everything that you said is correct.

    I will add another point: the pie is finite.

    It is best to visualize this as a pie chart. The amount of the pie is fixed. However, each sector seeks a portion of the pie. If any sector e.g. govt takes up too much of the pie then the other sectors miss out.

    If govt is taking away company earnings via taxes then that means that there is less available to be used for both investment and new hires.

  74. JJ………………………….
    While I can only speak for the Graphic Arts Industry,and up to a point Ford Motor Company, overregulation is definitely PART of the PROBLEM,but not the ENTIRE problem. In reality the ENTIRE problem is a COMBINATION of factors which differ slightly from one business arena to another. That said it IS true that overregulation of companies that manufacture hard goods, etc is a real problem. Again all of the regulation and it’s enforcement translates to ever increasing costs to get a product out the door in the US. If you think that paying someone $25.00 an hour whose skill level is at about 10%, is great,then you too are part of the problem. You cannot pay an UNSKILLED worker the same amount as a highly skilled worker. Acquiring certain skills requires years of endeavor, and training. I employed both unskilled and skilled people in my company. You cannot put an unskilled pressman on a MULTI COLOR press having a REPLACEMENT cost of over a million dollars.. The possibility of accident is too great,as is the potential for serious damage to the equipment,not to mention the spoilage of the product. That is primarily why there are skilled,and unskilled people in the Graphic Arts industry. I would think that this would apply to ANY company that used expensive machinery to manufacture a product. You simply cannot put inexperienced people on a major piece of production equipment without having first trained him/her on how to operate the machine. Without training it is really dangerous . In machining most modern machining centers are computer controlled. Again without any understanding of this equipment an untrained operator becomes a liability to himself,and the company,and this translates to a much higher cost of manufacturing the product. Rate of production is very important. I am thankful that my son has so far been able to hang on to his business operation. In Indiana just since 2009 we have watched as one business after another have chosen to close up,file for reorganisation,or have been forced to break up their companies into much smaller mini companies, or mom and pop operations. Then if the business cannot at least generate enough income to keep mom and pop it is time to shut it down.

    Amen to everything you stated.

    Just one more point to add here: thank God for management accountants. :)

    Jerry Brown announces NOW endorsement one day after Meg Whitman slur

    Coincidence? You be the judge. It’s official: NOW is a partisan organization.”
    http://tinyurl.com/29plqvv

    That is not a suprise as they have been partisan since their formation. NOW only supports liberal women and liberal men. It’s all about pushing a progressive agenda, not standing up for the rights of all woman.
    ===========================================

    This is nothing new. NOW has always promoted the liberal agenda. They have never represented conservative women.

    I think that there is a chapter of NOW in Australia. They are totally irrelevant from my point of view because they always promote left-wing causes.

  77. Aussie………………………….
    In the operation of my company through the 1960s and into the 1970s, I used to mark my materials up 25%. Primarily paper. Our paper was in 40″diameter rolls, and weighed anywhere from 600 lbs up to as high as 1200 lbs each. We used to keep an inventory of at least 50,000 lbs on hand, just to cover the needs of the DOD printing that I done, for DLSC. In those days paper was still under federal price controls. We knew that we could get away with having this much paper on hand, with regard to inventory tax. If we had more than 5000 pounds on hand just prior to inventory time we gave it away to another high volume plant 40 miles south of us. They used it up quickly producing adsvertising inserts to newspapers. Everybody came out happy at the end of the day. We had a lot of reciprocity agreements with a NUMBER of other high volume printers, two of whom were Chicago companies. One was located in Dempster, and the other was in Marty Bender’s neck of the woods (Northbrook). After all is said and done it behooves a business owner to be an LLC company these days. But even that is now a danger if not watched over closely.

    Oldsalt,
    I do have some idea about printing :). My former brother-in-law was a printer. My late sister was a screen printer. I had a short stint with a company involved with printing magazines here in Australia. (that was high volume printing :) )

    Anyway, I do understand what you mean, and it sounded like a good arrangement, especially if it helped to ensure that you did not pay what is an iniquitous tax.

    It sounds like there needs to be a lot of changes at Federal and State level. If the assets tax is a state tax then the State Congress needs to be cleaned out – get rid of these taxing vermin.

    I am not against suitable regulations that ensure that businesses do the right thing with regard to consumers, employees and their stockholders. There needs to be some form of accountability.

    However, something like an assets tax which increases the cost of production and is itself unproductive needs to be repealed so that the USA businesses can be competitive in a world market situation.

    I will stress that we are facing some of the same things. Our manufacturers are moving offshore because of these uncompetitive practices. We cannot compete with China, Malaysia, Indonesia, Thailand, India and Pakistan. Our labour costs are simply too high. However, it is not just labour costs, it is those other hidden costs: transport and other related cost of sales etc. etc. All o f these costs, including the imposition of taxes are the reason that we are all losing in the long run.

    One reason that I am against the watermelon agenda is that implementation of the agenda has led to enormous increases in these costs.

    In manufacturing according to management accounting there are the direct costs of production:
    labour
    materials
    etc

    then there are the indirect costs:
    administration
    etc

    One of the costs that would bear watching is that of the cost to collect from customers. I am not just talking about paying the clerk who has the unfortunate duty to make those calls (and threaten to break a few kneecaps at the same time) but the cost of taking these same customers to court, as well as the cost of servicing loans because people have not paid up on time.

  79. Does anyone know the actual number of states that filed actions against the Constitutionality of Obamacare? Is the number of states over 50%? I believe that this will have a real effect upon how the lawsuits are treated in actual litigation.

    This is a fairly long video but it shows the stark difference between the two rallies. Watch and then decide for yourself which group better represents you and the America you want to live in.

    “First, we know clearly that the ineligible Obama is indeed psychologically and emotionally challenged, and second, that he is a puppet likely controlled by the New World Order.

    I assert that the key information the NWO has on Obama is evidence of his birth place and citizenship; the true identity of his parents; and his so called ‘education’ and training….”

    I’m away from my computer for a day and come back to a credit for my Amicus Curiea post to find a stuffload of responses and a credit-posting from CW himself!

    Thanks All!
    :)

    Word to Free Speech and Emudude,

    I’d also like to know if the judge has allowed the actual “confession” as evidence in the case as well. With 26 states involved in this I just don’t see how this gets brushed off short of Zero allowing ObamaCare to die on repeal its own.

    I’m hopeful the SCOTUS smackdown is inevitable.

    But given Emudude’s appraisal I also believe caution is in order.

    God Bless us all in our endeavors.

  84. …Zero allowing ObamaCare to die on repeal ON its own…

    Grammar is key.

    ====================================

    The significant thing about the Amicus is that it signals a way to get the issue of bo’s ineligibility attached to cases with “standing” like the State of Virginia.
