Hmmmm ... Setting a proper embezzlement rate on THIS one is worthy of Plenipotentiary Tribunal consideration. The associated parties will be run per the usual pattern. A special request: those seeing consulting Gnomes wandering around the Lagoon should show them consideration worthy of the finest 10-Ring traditions! The Gnomes may look all scrunched-up, but they ARE useful to us.

Bullman, when you were near my end of the Lagoon a while back, you shouold have stopped.
There's a place about 18 miles from my house, the guy has made a business of restoring 68/69 Dodge Chargers & painting them up to replicate The General.
He's usually got 2 or 3 on the lot for sale !
And the world Famous Volo Auto Museum is right down the street, about 2 miles, they have one of the actual Generals from the show, along with the ORIGINAL Batmobile that was built from the old Lincoln Futura show car by Geo. Barris.
Barris stops by the place once or twice a year too.

In order for us to have 39% of something, there has to a value to it in the first place. The effort required to turn the UN into something would never pay the investment back, not at 39% or 99% .

To put it simply yes we could do something with that sows ear but it would cost far more than 39% of a silk purse would ever be worth.

Let's just put some lipstick on that pig and sell it.

If we invest correctly the write offs could be tremendous. after depriciating the initial investment and the write offs for feed and such, we then sell the object to the Luau department where it is turned into the centerpiece for a business dinner which is attended, and paid for so it can be written off, by the other departments.

I have always felt that the money in the Olympics was in the "side money" anyway. The event draws too much attention, there are too many languages involved, and more importantly too many ham-fisted amatures in the way and getting caught.

In the eighties, Touche Ross was one of the "Big 8" accounting firms, and rumor had it, the most aggressively creative in masking bad news for its clients. The firm later merged with Deloitte Haskins & Sells, creating the current Deloite & Touche.

Not necessarily; the Earned Income Tax Credit is a lovely scam ... whoops! ... I mean, a precisely targeted entitlement program ... that does not require you to do farming. The farming subsidies, though, may have been the prototype for the EITC.

That is why it is so important to properly "Fudge"...I sorry I meant working backwards even if you want 125% back, to have the numbers look honest and straight forward! This works with any and all credits because the numbers look and work correctly. :shocked:

This brings us to the "farming subsidies", this can be also refered to as a "cash crop" Gov pays you not to plant certain crops, but then you plant something like medical Cannabis on public land, then have the illegal immigrants work the fields, earning yet another deduction for special employment ops, taking the full advantage because certain percentage crop loss for personal gains :whistling: and then the medical research grants aspect while claiming squaters rights to full ownership of the public lands without capital gains taxes. :faint:

One item we are uncertain of: If we pick up Federal Soil Bank subsidies for leaving land fallow, but then "accidentally" have independent subcontractors bring in a crop of medical-grade cannabis on that land under terms of that medical research grant, are we then prevented from claiming Double Declining Digit Accelerated Depreciation on the durable equipment which is not currently being FORMALLY used on the land in its current fallow status but is surreptitiously being employed for the medicinal cannabis?

This question is important; we have to have all our details all in sync when we put together our doubletalk ... whoops! ... I mean, our FINANCIAL ANALYSIS PRESENTATION ... to the IRS shmoes who do the rubber-stamp approval of our tax returns.

That does present a possible ramifications if the digits are accelrrated to double the imput of the square of the fallow property, but seing how the durable equipment was enlisted on public land and was not used on the fallow land as stated by the Federal Soil Bank subsidies, no appreciable square roots can be levied by said shmoes, therefore the rubber stamp is automatically approved under the current "Health Care" as set by Obamy himself. :rofl:

On a side note that you may find interesting, my wildcatt investing business has scored a grand coup this week.

Being an election year I wanted to take advantage of the advertising opportunities and I gambled early on Romney being the nominee and when it started to pay off I threw caution to the wind and doubled down on my investment. I gambled on the letter "R". I became the largest single owner of the letter "R" in my conservative voting region. You cannot imagine how happy I was when Romney chose Ryan. My double down is paying off doubly well.

I do not advise anyone try my strategy in the future. I have many years of experience and i saw my father lose a great amount of money when he gambled on Pat Paulsons career prospects. "till his dying day he avoided words with the letter "P" in them, even though we had cans of P everywhere.

Well gang, the whole problem comes down to the fact that Her Majesty doesn't NEED a key for TARDIS, you see there's a fingerprint-reading touchpad that only works for Geesie, rather an anti-theft device of the first order. Eng151515 & myself installed it after Geesie lost the key while at a shoe sale in the Rigel-9 system....it was a bit of a stretch getting TARDIS back home with my remote unit, which has since gone"POOF", letting all of the smoke out of it, so it no longer works.
My own control system is equally theft-proof, TARDIS reads my brain waves (poor thing) and is controlled strictly by thought. Needless to say, we've ended up in some STRANGE time-space areas to say the least !
The only known, existing key is on a custom titanium chain around Mongo's neck......good luck with that. Not that Mongo uses TARDIS a lot, but he won't part with the key. He considers it his personal "Get Out of Jail Free" card.

Well I think it is wonderful that Mongo has something he feels empowers him. It seems to make him calmer and more self assured. Lord knows if he feels insecure..........

The "flaw" as it can best be described, to using TARDIS for a woman shopping is that, unless she is into "Retro" the most expensive parts of the wardrobe must be the "latest" and the also have a very short "trendy" life. "Rigel-9", really? I have heard their designs are sooo next century.

You seem to forget, TARDIS is fully capable of travel in ALL directions & dimensions.
The only directives given to me by the Council of Time Lords, is that it cannot be used to CHANGE history, or for evil, personel gain. Within those parameters, Geesie going shopping is quite harmless.:wavey:

Just be sure you never theoretically get a theoretical headache. If that were to happen, the 10-Ring Medical Center would have to reallocate at least seven of its staffers to assuage your condition.

One philosophical/chronological consideration that should be mentioned: Would hitting one million views possibly create an annihilation sequence comparable to the whole Mayan calendar shtick coming up in December? It would be a real bummer to avoid ONE end of the world fracas, just to get caught up in another.

Being a "glass half full" type I could make a case for the ent bringing about world peace. I tcould become a sort of harmonic balancer for the turning world. We could all try chanting a group 'OOOHM" when it happens and see if it has an effect.

Given, however, that total world peace and harmony might well effect the cahs flow that facilitates the level of debauchery required to keep the crew here in check it may well be that it would be counter-productive and the effect would only last as long as the reserve funds and diminished income kept the suds flowing.

There is even a down side to optimism.

Many of the people further south of me got hammered hard by the storm surge forthe storm's slow track. Water poured into some areas so fast, placing over 10' of water and debris in some neighborhoods. The marsh wetlands have deteriated over the years, this was the buffer to the storm surges but Louisana is loosing land by the hour these days due to costal errosion. These type storms destroy even more each year.

Many of the people north of me got hammered by the heavy and presistant rain fall with some areas getting as much as 22", this placed heavy loads on waterways, dams and locks in the area with threaten to cause failure of the structures. Measures were taken to lessen the strain on them. Local rivers bayous and streams reached record flood levels with this CATAGORY 1 storm!
