Some folks are brought here to wave their own flag
Oh, they’re yellow, black, and brown
And when the band plays “Hail to the Thief”
They point the check towards me
You better buck up
You better buck up
You are our funds
You better buck up
You are our fortune, son

The name of the company is “Midway Airport Concessionaires”.
The woman doesn’t even know the name of the company that employs her.
As to what kind of “derivatives” she wants executed …. I am still trying to figure out what that word was supposed to actually be. Obviously her Word skills are not strong.
Unfortunately I do not have pervious managerial experience.
270Straegies: Helping clients build people-centered, data-driven, and digitally-sophisticated grassroots campaigns that achieve their strategic goals and change the world.
It sounds simple enough.
270Strategies’ Jeremy Bird states to Politco that:
“With its diversity and size, Texas should always be a battleground state where local elections are vigorously contested and anyone who wants to be our commander in chief has to compete and show they reflect Texas values. Yet for far too long, the state’s political leaders, both in Austin and in Washington, D.C., have failed to stand for Texans. Over the next several years, Battleground Texas will focus on expanding the electorate by registering more voters — and as importantly, by mobilizing Texans who are already registered voters but who have not been engaged in the democratic process.”
“Texas values” not being represented by those elected?
270Strategies apparently feels it can represent “Texas values” but it also appears to be a front for Blue State Digital as that is the registrant of the domain name and the DNS provider.
Blue State Digital is a public relations firm whose claims to fame includes engineering:
The election of Barack Obama as President.
The election of Dilma Roussert, a socialist, as President of Brazil.
The election of faux Amerind Elizabeth Warren to US Senate.
Media campaigns for the DCCC and the NAACP.
The only available address for 270Strategies is: 734 15th Street, NW, Suite 1000
Washington, District of Columbia 20005.
This raises questions though as to what their true motive is as 734 15th Street, NW, Suite 1000, Washington, District of Columbia 20005, is also the address of Ebert & Baumann Consulting Engineers, Inc., a “green” consulting firm. EB-Engineering is led by Oliver Baumann, President, Diplom-Ingenieur, LEED AP, and Jochen Schäfer, Head Industrial Group, Diplom-Ingenieur, LEED AP, both documented green (no pun intended) card holding German nationals.
The EB Engineers website states:
Our entire work is committed to cost effective, energy efficient and sustainable solutions for our clients’ projects! With this in focus, we provide comprehensive consulting services that comprise integrated methods and modern tools.
Our services cover the entire life cycle of buildings and systems; our methodologies and tools are applicable for all types of buildings, as well as for industrial systems and processes..
Why would a public relations / propaganda firm share office space with a “green” engineering firm? And how would this public relations / propaganda firm foster a strong Democratic Party presence in Texas?
Destruction of economic viability of the citizens of a state creates a culture of dependence, making the residents the subjects of the ruling class. What would destroy the livelihood of the citizens of Texas the most and foster the greatest dependence?
The destruction of the oil economy. Why? People know who to vote for when their livelihood depends on it. If it is destroyed, they become as hopeless as those not as well compensated for their labor. Expect to see the demonization of refineries, pipelines, oil wills, etc. Just as with coal, they will claim that its mere presence poisons the environment, that its removal destroys the environment, that the use of it poisons citizens, especially the poor, aka Hispanics, because of proximity.
As they did for Appalachia because of its coal based economy decades ago, they came for Texas because of its oil. Because there is nothing more demonic to a green liberal than a “fossil fuel”.
Over the weekend prior to January 20, 2010:
An Oregon man was arrested Friday, after 135 pounds of marijuana was found in his vehicle during a traffic stop near mile post 70. The marijuana has an estimated street value of $675,000, according to Sgt. Don Allen.
“It’s the good stuff,” Allen said. Marijuana of this grade typically sells for $5,000 a pound on the street, he said.
Bond is set at $100,000 for Trevis M. Caplinger, 32, of Ashland, Ore. Caplinger’s attorney said his client has no criminal history and is unemployed after working in the banking and real estate industries. Caplinger cooperated with the arresting officer and was not carrying any weapons, according to his attorney.
Deputy Attorney General Heidi Linngren described the significant quantity of marijuana as dangerous to the community when she asked 7th Circuit Court Magistrate Judge Shawn Pahlke for the high bond.
Caplinger was passing through the state and has no connections to the area, Linngren said. If he posts bond, Caplinger must sign a waiver of extradition.
Caplinger is charged with two Class 3 felonies, conspiracy and possession of more than 10 pounds of marijuana. Each carries a potential maximum sentence of 15 years in prison. The conspiracy charge also carries a mandatory minimum of one year in prison upon conviction. Caplinger is also charged with a misdemeanor for possession of drug paraphernalia.

He then became eligible for early release:
Almost two dozen South Dakota prison inmates became eligible for release from the corrections system before the Thanksgiving holiday after Gov. Mike Rounds reduced their sentences.
The sentences of 270 minimum-security-status inmates were reduced because of their work on community service or special projects or completion of GED or firefighter certification.
The sentence reductions are in 90-day, 120-day and 150-day increments.
The inmates became eligible for the commutation once they met the service criteria, did not have any major disciplinary infractions on their record and had not violated any supervised releases, said Michael Winder, communications director for the state Department of Corrections.
The commutations are typically done at the end of the calendar year, Winder said. Rounds signed an Order Granting Commutations of Sentence Nov. 15 and Nov. 23.
The inmates who performed community service work assisted with storm or flood cleanups, or helped roof and tuck-point state buildings. Commutations were also issued to minimum-security inmates who completed their GED or firefighter certification.
Inmates who worked 320 hours on select community service projects received 90-day sentence reductions. Inmates who completed their GED or firefighter certification or assisted with special projects received 90-day sentence reductions. Inmates who fulfilled two of the criteria received 120-day sentence reductions, and inmates who fulfilled three or more of the criteria received 150-day sentence reductions.
Glenn Brenner, Pennington County state’s attorney, said he hopes the governor is seeking recommendations for commutations from parole officers who can attest to the inmate’s progress.
“I hope that’s all taking place,” he said.
Brenner said it can be frustrating for prosecutors who work to secure a conviction only to have a sentence reduced later.
Eighty-seven of the inmates are from Pennington County.
CAPLINGER, TREVIS 90 PENNINGTON

So from time to arrest to 90 day early release from prison, a total of 10 months elapsed. Which means he was sentenced to less than a month in prison per ten pounds of marijuana.
Well now he has a conundrum on his hands. He has a felony record.
How does he fix this. Easy. Change his name in the state where he got the felony conviction. From here forward, Trevis Michael Caplinger will be known as Trevis Titan True if the change is allowed ….
I love the first offense thing. What? Does he accidentally (translation: axidenlee) have a 135 pound bag of weed in his car. No criminal culture relations? Just a first offense and 10 months?
Let’s see if we can deny Trevis Michael Caplinger his change of name request.
Because if it’s allowed, it will probably only be his name until his next felony conviction.
It will be unprecedented in size.
It will be an attempt to buy votes that don’t really matter, and assure others that they will be taken care of as well in the event of a “natural disaster”.
Mitt Romney: ( I will fuck Iran like we did South Africa and it will become a shithole (overrun and) ruled by those who have no ability to lead ).
That sounds too much like what has happened to certain areas of the US.
Three weeks ago, I was pretty sure my job would be ending soon. I was doing nothing at work. Running some numbers and trying to help by finding a “house” for my boss. So I started “the search”. The search starts with research, so I subscribed to the Yankton (SD) Dakotan and the Sheridan (WY) Times, as local small area papers are generally a good refection of the community.
Yankton looks like it may have recently got “the problem”, but is inexpensive. Sheridan seems expensive but even menial jobs seem to pay 70% more than minimum wage in Chicago (lots of jobs pay minimum in a “sanctuary city”). There are still some other papers I want to check out, the search is not over.
Nobody is really interested in my algo without any of my own money (actually a ton of my own money) because it has “risk”. Yeah, it does, but it also has a huge reward if one side settles in the right range. Plus it multiple legs so the long side actually presents opportunity to roll the dice for a higher payout while taking a reward prior to closing. Liquidating myself to back it wouldn’t be enough, it has issues, nothing illegal though.
So anyways, I find a “house”, and we have moved in. My bosses algo isn’t doing what they thought it should to the degree they predicted …. I had a feeling. But then other issues arise, exchange obligations – confusing SRO regulatory garbage basically. We had no choice but to address these SRO exchange obligations.
So now I am pushing quotes into one of the most liquid trading pits in the world. Doing what I am pretty sure I was meant to do …..
Not in Paradise. In the place where I can do what I can do what I do best ….
Until now, Evergreen Park, Illinois.
What you say, but your Chicago Public Schools teachers were just out on strike?
You heard me. They were just not going to work and disrupting other people lives in order to get their way. Yes, you heard me once again.
How many days did the strike last? Seven days. How many days pay did they actually lose? Zero. How long did the Lake Forest, Illinois teachers strike last? Five days. How many days pay did they actually lose? Zero.
Zero pay loss? The length of the school year is set by law. If the days are made up and the teachers who went on strike teach, they lose no pay.
Why is Evergreen Park different?
From the Evergreen Park Patch:
The Evergreen Park Federation of Teachers’ bargaining team walked out of contract talks Monday evening after learning that the Dist. 124 school board would not be allowing paying teachers or staff nor allowing them to make up missed work days lost during the strike.
The school district is prepared to forego state aid—about $7,000 per day—for each day the teachers are out on strike. Illinois public schools are required to carry 176 attendance days.
D124 Superintendent Dr. Robert Machak said the loss of teacher and staff pay for days lost to the strike was “one part of the conversation” during Monday’s contract talks.
“There was no discussion about it,” Machak said. “The union’s response to the board was that they got up and left.”
The state allows school districts five emergency days. Should teachers and paraprofessionals return to the classroom before the end of this week, no state aid or teachers’ pay will be lost due to the strike.
“If teachers come back Thursday this is a non-issue,” the district superintendent said. “You are paid to be in school in the classroom. If you voluntarily choose to walk out from that responsibility why would you be paid for that?”
Last night ABC Chicago was reporting that Evergreen Park would use substitutes for the required make-up days.
This from CBS Chicago:
The union said earlier contract talks ended when the school district threatened to not allow students to make up days lost to a school strike, or pay teachers for those lost days.
But the board has denied providing the union with a proposal denying students make-up dates for school days lost to the strike. The board said it did tell the union before the strike that teachers would not make up lost days, and would not be paid for them.
A statement from the board said, “the board does not intend to reward striking employees who harm the students, their parents, and the community.”
A strike is not a strike when you still get paid, it’s just harassing other people, and every single one of them should be arrested for creating a public nuisance when they play that game.
