The GAP QUAL 100 simulation that I’m running on the current season shows some surprises. The bonus system that I’ve devised definitely opens up competition. No lead is safe. It is entirely possible for consecutive bad races to … Continue reading →
Those that were predicting that the U.S. economy would be flying high by now have been proven wrong. U.S. GDP grew at the worst rate in three years during the first quarter of 2017, and many are wondering if this is the beginning of a major economic slowdown. Of course when we are dealing with [...]
This could be the first official map produced by the European Union to exclude the UK. But it is also an inaccurate one: the UK is still a member state of the EU. As BigThink.com's Frank Jacobs writes, the map shows the unemployment rates of the member states – and the stark differences for those rates between member states in the north and south of the […]
An Election, Another Explosion When Nixon was elected in November of 1968, things really began to heat up at Gadsby & Hannah. Colson’s work on Nixon’s behalf had been very much appreciated by Nixon (even if it wasn’t by some of his men), and the opportunities for recompense at the firm were going to be […]
What constitutes Mental Illness? This is precisely the kind of rubbish that defers me not to even read, listen to, or write about. Until the psycho-community can come up with some clear guidelines and definitive definitions as to what being … Continue reading →

This scenario illustrates a structure that harvests a most vulnerable group, the elderly. By the nature of their circumstances, they can get harvested by the most respected members of a community.
In this scenario, a District Court judge, a real estate broker and and an attorney devised a scheme to acquire property for pennies on the dollar. The victims, all elderly, in nursing homes and without interested family members, were left vulnerable to someone they trusted. The victims were longtime clients of the judge, also a well established attorney in the community. With the families too busy or to far away to actively participate in daily affairs, it was a simple matter for the judge to be named Conservator.
When the time came to liquidate the victims’ property, a quick, private sale went through the system, unnoticed. Since family wouldn’t receive any proceeds from the sale, they weren’t interested. They were happy that the medical bills were paid and there were no issues to resolve.
One property in this scenario was typical. The owners were in a facility about an hour’s drive away. Family lived in other parts of the country. The property was a large house on 2/3 acre of land, 4 or 5 blocks from downtown. If I remember correctly, the assessed value was $158,000. This group acquired the property for $14,300. That wasn’t the only one. Rumors suggested that they owned as many as 43 properties, acquired in this manner.
You just can’t trust some people, especially when you are unable to defend yourself. There are always people in place, ready and waiting for you. The best defense is to have as many real friends and family, who genuinely care about you. I’m sure that there are better arrangements that families can make, well ahead of time. The bonus is that life can be much more pleasant and in good company.
“People stand silent in the presence of corruption, to fall back in the small comfort of passionate defense of virtue they should have displayed, before the fact.”
“In its report, the board said as of last Friday, it decided to claw back from Mr. Stumpf an additional $28 million of incentive compensation paid in March 2016 under an equity grant made in 2013.
