How NY’s OTDA [social services agency] runs even more fatherhood (and DV) funding through FFFS alternate circuitry

with 2 comments


From a pre-Thanksgiving draft (and in not much beyond draft shape) I simply want to illustrate how “Follow the money” is almost impossible when it comes to the entrenched systems of Fatherhood, yes, also Domestic Violence prevention categories.


Some things you can’t see without even reading some detailed Administrative Memorandum offering more perks through, as in this example, “Flexible Funds for Family Services.” [FFFS].  I provided about half a post’s worth of intro, so if you want the original (and more picturesque part) please do scroll down at least to the first set of quotes, in tables with a rich brown background. This post  relates to the “fatherhood.gov” a.k.a. “the National Responsible Fatherhood Resource Center and an Albany, New York street address on the contact page?  and who that relates to.  This field and the supposedly contrary field (domestic violence) since 1996 have been funded through the federal government. I did the best I could with formatting and hope the post further enlightens us ALL to (wake up and smell the coffee)….and make a New Year’s Resolution to start better comprehending “government” and how it’s funded.  While I’m not the expert, I do have access to some tools which are NOT taught in most schools or reported in the local mainstream media.  The tools aren’t to drown anyone with details, but the exhibit certain concepts — and from there, make a more informed decision of where you stand regarding (well, what’s to be done with your future TIME and LIFE).


Point Being, #1 — neither the US nor our local governments are “broke.” They are OBVIOUSLY faking it, as the memo below (or, others in the series, I DNR which) literally admit, the services are funded — but there was $9.74 +million still available in the FFFS fund, so rather than refund it to the taxpayers in the form of reducing taxes the next year, the idea is “Let’s keep it IN New York, how much does your Social Services District want, Oh, Local Commissioners of the District?” Never mind that we might not NEED so much welfare if so much hadn’t been withheld from us in the first place, or our grandparents! Point Being, #2 — even if they were broke (which they aren’t — as the CAFRs reveal), they’re not responsive to the public’s actual needs because no NORMAl person could possibly see – without devoting a profession and probably half a work year (half a day, every day)  into studying the convoluted trail — where the excess goes (or, is lost). Logical Conclusion, in my opinion anyhow: I think that’s as good a reason as any – and this IS where I stand on it now — to simply STOP funding ALL fatherhood/marriage promotion AND — (on the basis that as it clearly hasn’t stopped violence against women, or the roadkill, and that if “they don’t get it now, they won’t get it later) — the VAWA funded projects. Right away, those two might cancel each other out. Shut down supervised visitation, and a lot more wealth will be retained by divorcing parents, and while there’d be more alive people (as the field tends to create dead people from time to time, as does the forced co-parenting visitation field, ALL of it based on social science theory about families and poverty, at least sold under those theories and ALL of it rationalized on the reasoning that CHILD SUPPORT replaces what was spent for WELFARE TO NEEDY FAMILIES.. when in fact, the governments (plural) are already funding themselves through their income-producing enterprises — and assets), there’d be fewer broke people. If you want to go to the rational conclusion, go read Walter Burien — he says, and others have continued to prove — we can phase out taxation – it’s not needed (except if you NEED wars, ongoing??).  He says it well enough to understand. I also found a person (Ruml, author of “Pay as You Go Income Tax” and also at one point Chair of the Federal Reserve Bank of NY, and he said this to, as I recall, the American Bar Association, in about 1934 — we don’t need taxes (incl. corporate taxes) — they’re really here to establish federal policy (a.k.a. for population control purposes).  My link is on the side bar, the “Social Sciencification of America” right under “Abolishing the Rule of Law through Executive Orders.”  That’s what I’m talking about here. If you want to combine Walter Burien with Let’s Get  Honest thinking, I say while we’re at it, go one step further (OR, do this beforehand) and IF we keep taxes, just for old-times sake, the churches and religious institutions must be on a level playing field — and have to register and cough up their tax returns.  THEN lets’ see who want s to continue showing up on Friday, Saturday, or Sunday (pick your major Abrahamic religion) and on Wednesday night Bible studies to be trained as a franchised marriage-counselor, or volunteer for fund-raising to help pay off some mortgages that the fund-raising volunteers don’t even have their own names on– they just attend! inbetween working to pay their tax bills and create more surplus for all the 90,000+ governments (see “US Census of Governments 2012, I’ve linked it), not to mention 50 states and territories. None of that appears likely to happen — like it should — so in the meanwhile, why not take another closer look at HOW some of the surplus is wasted, and admit that the option between stopping the accumulation of too much wealth at the federal governmental level (and plenty of other levels) is to throw up ones hands and GIVE UP accountability for the whole mess. Where people stand on the issue of government organizes their social behavior.  Perhaps — JUST PERHAPS — if it were better comprehended by more people, there might be more intelligent action, (after the initial year, or so, of complete outrage, well-deserved) to eliminate the income tax and free up several hours a day, every day, from many of our schedules.  For example, to learn some math — and accounting terms.  Then, to play with our kids, make love to our spouses or partners and maybe not be so angry with them, or scared about losing — money and social status.



Here’s just one such memo.  otda.ny.gov/policy/directives/2009/ADM/09-ADM-12.pdf – 2011-09-23 (detailed also below).


Did you know about ‘SOCIAL SERVICES DISTRICTS?”  New York apparently has 58.  Described HERE  It references child care because I happened upon the OCFS in order to find a definition of those districts:

New York State is divided into fifty-eight local social services districts. The five boroughs of New York City comprise one district. Outside of New York City each district corresponds to one of the fifty-seven counties that make up the remainder of the state. County Departments of Social Services (DSS) provide or administer the full range of publicly funded social services and cash assistance programs. Families whose income meets state guidelines and who meet other criteria, may be able to receive a subsidy to offset some of their child care costs. If you are interested in learning more about the availability of child care subsidies in your county, please contact your DSS office. Listed below is an alphabetical list of the fifty-eight DSS Offices available throughout New York State. …

Apparently here’s the law.  I don’t know when this division happened — but my point is, that from distribution of government funds and services, the state is divided up, one per county — but NYC (being so large) is its own district.  So from a Political Division — it’s by counties.  But from a FUNDING and SERVICE PROVISION point of view, they are Social Service Districts.  our country is being treated as an Administrative Region, split up by Regions into TEN (from HHS point of view).  See sidebar, “Pages” and “Vital Links”..

§  61.  Social services districts.   For the purpose of administration
  of public assistance and care the state shall be divided into county and
  city social services districts as follows:
    1.  The city of New York is hereby constituted a city social  services
  district.
    2.   Each of the counties of the state not included in subdivision one
  of this section is hereby constituted a county social services district.

For example (google results search) here’s a NY Senate bill attempting to expand the reach of “domestic violence services” for those districts to contract locally — and get reimbursed from the state — to provide more outreach to middle and high schools for DV programs, and to remove the requirement that 70% of the clientele actually BE DV victims and their children.  Thankfully it looks like the bill “died in committee” (several times).   Here’s another attempt (different bill#) last action shows January 2014 “referred to social services.” The point is, not to go crazy and try to track this all — the point is to point out how very convoluted the matter is — and look for other ways to track what goes where.  Alternately, give up the idea of finding out what’s being down with what’s deducted from your paycheck, and why people that get on welfare ONCE and have a custody case, have a hard time staying off it, and why being next-door neighbors, or customers to them at a hair salon, (or many other places) could become very dangerous, as most of these distressed and social-services-sucking population (the ones bankrupted through the courts, if they had a lot, or just something going in) possibly have pissed-off-exes somewhere around, and given how much happens right around hearings — and how very many hearings even a single case can have, year after year — it’s just ,well, a social hazard.  A “Clear and present danger,” and again, I’m talking about VAWA-authorized grants encouraging us to get out and get safe, while HHS-authorized grants to the States (and plenty of other places) encourage whoever we were trying to get safe FROM, to come back after us and grab the kids, or worse. My closest recommendation is, through the governmentally issued Comprehensive Annual Financial Reports (for the appropriate governmental group) while ALSO finding out, from the same agency’s accounting numbers (i.e., Comptrollers of the Treasury, and others give NUMBERS and NAMES to various funds, see my “Top Ten Posts” link for an example of how I tracked certain funds in California. It’s work, but it’s at least BY FUND# which can then be found on a CAFR somewhere, as well as on a budget report, and in legislation somewhere.  THING IS — government has to appropriate through legislation — and most FUNDS have some sort of related legislation to go with them. The larger issue is — FACE IT — looks to me like our government is anything BUT “broke” as they are found here literally soliciting the “LCs” (Local Commissioners) through LCMs (Local Commissioner Memos) that more money is available to be drawn down — or if you wish NOT to “draw it down” you can bounce it back up to some statewide initiative, but make a decision.  (Pink-background below). At the bottom, is a section on Erie County, NY, talking about it some more –basic business talk re: government; I would never have found it without paying some consistent attention to, and having remembered a lesson learned long ago from ‘fatherhood.gov” and my habit of actually looking up street addresses. The National Responsible Fatherhood Clearinghouse  (aka “fatherhood.gov“) says CLEARLY across the brown banner, and in white letters at the bottom, (as does the “*.gov” suffix) is a government site.  We spend, overall, entirely too much time near the tops of websites, and not nearly enough going STRAIGHT to the bottom  and looking for: who paid, and what’s the street address, where this is often found. The “About us” page may, but usually does not, tell us this valuable information.

Who Are We? Link reads

(but background there is white not brown; I just like the color scheme, so have continued it to represent the fatherhood.gov website):

Who are we?

The National Responsible Fatherhood Clearinghouse is an Office of Family Assistance (OFA)* funded national resource for fathers, practitioners, programs/Federal grantees, states, and the public at-large who are serving or interested in supporting strong fathers and families.  [[and, for those who scroll down further, we learn what Budget Appropriation Act of 2010 helped it]] . . .

Contact Us The Claims Resolution Act of 2010 (CRA) re-authorized funding for the National Responsible Fatherhood Clearinghouse (NRFC). The NRFC was initially funded through the Deficit Reduction Act (2005) for “the development, promotion, and distribution of a media campaign to encourage the appropriate involvement of parents in the life of any child and specifically the issue of responsible fatherhood, and the development of a national clearinghouse to assist States and communities in efforts to promote and support marriage and responsible fatherhood.

* They should’ve but didn’t say “HHS” or “Health and Human Services” — that’s were the “OFA” resides.  The Acronym would be “HHS/OFA” then).  How many WOMEN and MEN knew that their taxes were helping pay for this clearinghouse under the large and spacious umbrella of “Government”?

 I’ll bet not many of the Fix our Flawed Courts followers  knew, because they’re not told, and don’t often venture (it would seem) far afield seeking information and ideas that wasn’t fed, or blogged them, through chosen sources (which boil down to, really, very few organizations with shared leadership and very warm, fuzzy-boundary friendly relationships among them, from what I can tell…. 2014 is entering my FIFTH (5th) year of reporting on what they STILL won’t teach systematically to people the same groups will continually tell their followers to:  send in your story, sign a “change.org” petition, show up for a rally, tell your congressperson (what we feed you) and, be informed, there’s a rally (often several states away, or a continent away) on such and such a date, we need all the support we can get, advertise it please (etc. etc.).

Anyhow, AFTER I ditched that crowd (not long after finding they had no interest in teaching people about this grants system, at all — and would silence or excommunicate those who felt it was relevant, or uttered a few phrases about it — or demanded a reason WHY this topic was a “tabu” among the groups), it didn’t take long to realize how relevant the information is.  And since then, I tend to tune them out (other than to comment, argue, or use for a teaching point of what NOT to do–inbetween following these grants, etc.) and I developed the habit (Anne Stevenson, investigative journalist, reminded me to do this, and what a good habit it is!) to look up street addresses attached to webpages and corporate (or here, government) identities, and see what else might be going on at the same street addresses.

SO – here is the ‘CONTACT US” for the above website, which should illustrate how I came to hear about Mr. Braswell (see also “National Fatherhood Leaders Group” board of directors, which I’ve blogged (again) recently) and from there, the point of this blog — he is, or was, the OTDA contact point for a certain fatherhood initiative — aimed at noncustodial fathers — run apparently through the social services agency in New York State.  I believe he also is, then, an employee of the state which in my book means, “CIVIL SERVANT.”

Below (@bottom of post), I took the option of running a single report (ALL years, sponsoring HHS Agency “OFA”) for the CFDA category “93086” which represents marriage/fatherhood.  Possibly this clearinghouse was funded under a different CFDA (despite its name).  You can see of 73 grants shown (keeping in mind I selected only ONE sponsoring agency, the OFA, and ONE CFDA#) that the clearinghouse isn’t one of the awards, and that nothing under “Albany, New York” shows up.  You can also see by looking more carefully under grantees whose names begin with the letter “F” that the database sorts ALL CAPS then Initial Caps — AND that the principal investigator names could have been put in either way.  And, no doubt, some other things.
Anyhow, below, a New York street address for a federal clearinghouse should catch your attention — and did mine when I first saw it. I followed up.  The rest is history ( i.e., incorporated into my awareness while writing this blog).  I have blogged this before, but we have a Kenneth Braswell as Executive Director of Fathers Incorporated, and good luck finding their tax returns (see street address, one of them is the same). So there’s a *.gov and a *.com out of the exact same street address, and President Obama doesn’t seem to care much, or worry about it.  Interesting tax return….

.So, regarding:

NY OTDA/Braswell etc. From “Strengthening Families through Strong Fathers” to Family Justice Centers (DV) funding

I kinda lost it when seeing another Family Justice Center qualifying in Erie County NY (along with “the following Fathers’ Rights initiative, being administratively solicited (the directive is to “social service district” providers through a “LCM” (Local Commissioner Memorandum” from the duo of the OTDA (TANF etc, I believe) and OCFS leadership in New York state.

$964.6 million of FFFS (Flexible Fund for Family Services) is made available.  Counties can do a MOE with a local provider, or authorize “intercepts” to their allotment of that rather large (almost $1 billion, right?) piece of the pie — and let the State Providers steer to their favorite state-wide groups.

Erie County already was having Kenneth Braswell and Russ Sykes (who put out this memo) and an NFI type guy — pushing fatherhood help and training seminars on the same […??]]  (2007), so I looked this up more at OTDA — and started mouthing off with information about the Family Justice Center initiative and the particulars of a San Diego group.   I shoulda kept my mouth shut on it, but here’s the writeup, for now.  I’m also seeing the pattern better, how the DV agencies are copying tactics from each other laterally. Towards the bottom of the post is some information on some Domestic Violence Agencies from California that Californians might want to make a note of, particularly as “the Center for Community Solutions” which comes up, I THINK, is also functioning as an umbrella agency (nonprofit) for another group — but which one, escapes me at the moment (1/15/2014). I saved this here so I could delete my excess talk from the  Blue-table part, below (listing of six providers in Erie County).

 Funds OTDA or OCFS Contact Strengthening Families Through Stronger Fathers Program The 09-10 State Budget provides   otda.ny.gov/policy/directives/2009/ADM/09-ADM-12.pdf – 2011-09-23

#Summary of the 2009-10 FFFS Administrative Directive (ADM) The Flexible Fund for Family Services (FFFS) has been enacted in the 2009-10 State Fiscal Year (SFY) Budget at a level of $964,600,000. This Administrative Directive (ADM) provides local social services districts (districts) with the individual district FFFS allocation amounts, pertinent planning information, the forms and instructions for completing the 2009-10 FFFS Plan and instructions on amending plans and submitting claims. Finally, the ADM provides guidance on the collection of performance and accountability data as required by Part KK of Chapter 57 of the Laws of 2009 governing the Enacted 2009-10 SFY Budget. . . .

[[then I simply searched the word “fathers” and found out the funding, again, with Mr. Braswell, as the contact person,  p. 24 of ” OTDA 09-ADM-12 Rev. 7/2009, which shows up as $2.74 million.  To be fair, there is also $3 million for “Non-Residential Domestic Violence Services.”  The note on this chart shows that although these programs WERE adequately funded, they could get more of the above $964.6 million through FFFS, with some stipulations:]]

b. Non-Residential Domestic Violence Services The SFY 2009-10 enacted State Budget includes a separate State allocation for Non- Residential Domestic Violence Services. OCFS has issued a separate Local Commissioners Memorandum, 09-OCFS-LCM-02, that sets forth the district’s Non- Residential Domestic Violence Services allocations and the rules governing those funds. However, a district [[SOCIAL SERVICES DISTRICT, in context]]  may choose to supplement its Non-Residential Domestic Violence Services allocation by dedicating a portion of its FFFS allocation to Non-Residential Domestic Violence Services. Additional Non-Residential Domestic Violence Services funding may be used for core and/or optional services provided by approved Non- Residential Domestic Violence Services Programs only. For a complete list of approved non-residential domestic violence services programs, refer to the OCFS website at www.ocfs.state.ny.us.*** Any SFY 2009-10 FFFS allocation dedicated to Non-Residential Domestic Violence Services is to be used for expenditures made from October 1, 2008 through September 30, 2009, and claimed by March 31, 2010. Districts may adjust their indicated amount of the FFFS allocation dedicated to Additional Non-Residential Domestic Violence Services prior to March 31, 2010. After March 31, 2010, no changes to the amount of the FFFS allocation dedicated to Additional Non-Residential Domestic Violence Services can be made, in order for the SFY 2009-10 Adult Protective/Domestic Violence Services settlement to take place. . . . [continued on next table of this background]

***Following up on this, from the main “OCFS.state.NY.US” website, I chose the “Domestic Violence” menu, then “Service Providers” option.  Hover cursor (or click through) to see that ERIE COUNTY (Buffalo and other cities) has six providers.  In fact here they are — and only one is “Residential.”  I’m concerned about there being a “Family Justice Center of Erie County, Inc.” — as this model at least in some places is a hybrid.  They are multiplying like rabbits, and should be monitored — as I am showing here, not only are some of these receiving direct funding, involving public servants already paid, but in addition, and out of the immediate view of the average voter or taxpayer, administrative directives from a single government agency are being sent to spread around $964.6 million of state “largesse” to God knows where and what causes.

[Hover cursor or click to see the folklore “History” and notice dates — 1995, 2001 as the faith-based initiative was executive-ordered, and 2003, President Bush specifically endorsed this model, stating that involvement of the faith community (common perpetrators of and coverers-up-of domestic violence against women, and promotion of patriarchal and fatherhood programming, etc.) was “integral” to the model, commending the San Diego Model. San Diego was being sued by one of its employees by 2004 and has another class action lawsuit against it, filed August 2013. Look to the business structure and tax returns!!)


QUOTE: “When the Family Justice Center opened its doors on May 2, 2006, it was the culmination of a dream that began in 1995. That’s when the Erie County Coalition Against Family Violence*** and the Multidisciplinary Coordinating Council first came together to find a way to improve the response to incidents of domestic violence in Erie County. The result was the 1995 Erie County Long-Term Strategic Plan which received its final assessment in 2000. As the next step, a Coordinated Community Response to Family Violence in Erie County planning conference was held at Buffalo State College in 2001. More than 100 individuals from various domestic violence agencies participated in the conference”


LGH SPITBACKs: ***the “CADV” groups are themselves centralized control of the movement! Then at the agency/government level, someone forms a “Coordinating Council” (In Santa Clara County (San Jose area), California — this was a well-known AFCC judge, started in 1991 — hooks up with the already centralized and “aligned” DV coalition (differes by name from state to state, but generally speaking “ends in “ADV” and takes some HHS grants.  NCADV, at the top, then charges the state-wide “CADVs” a sliding scale (membership) fees, sells product, and hits the conference circuit (incl. BMCC conference) to make sure that NO ONE (battered mothers in particulars) gets word of the access/visitation or marriage/fatherhood funding in any detail, and with any tools to do something about it. From there, “game’s on!” on commandeering the funding from the Feds and the State, as public employees (some of them) under a nonprofit set up (if they get around to it) and controlling entire fiefdoms regionally sometimes two or three in a county (San Diego right now has 3, although I can only find 2 filed as nonprofits.  The 3rd apparently is under, or run by this group!!  Besides the powerhouse Board (chk it out) the “executive staff” includes Verna Griffin-Tabor, who since 1988 has been on this board, for a few years also on the DV agency “CPEDV” (statewide, big player), and:

Verna Griffin-Tabor has worked in the field of sexual assault and relationship violence for more than 20 years. Since 1998, she has been the CEO of Center for Community Solutions. Verna’s career has been committed to the prevention of sexual assault and relationship violence. She has served on the board of the California Partnership to End Domestic Violence for the last three years and was active while that entity merged. Verna also serves on various community boards – She served on the Advisory Board of the University of San Diego’s Nonprofit Leadership and Management Program and is a mentor to an at-risk teen. In 2006, the San Diego Domestic Violence Council honored her with the Lifetime Achievement Award.

That “San Diego Domestic Violence Council” she was President of, in 2001-2002.  Before that Gael Strack and Casey Gwinn (who helped create the Family Justice Center Alliance concept) were on the council, with City Attorney Mr. Gwinn having started it with a Human Relations Executive “Ashley Walker” in 1989? Who HASN’T been President of this Council?

Incidentally, YES, it got HHS funding (I looked) and somehow TAGGS (the HHS database)  managed to mis-spell the Principal Investigator’s name, although she’s been around for a few decades in the field and is well known regionally. They got it right in 2003 and wrong in 2007ff (same grant series, different grant#) so if you searched on her last name — you wouldn’t see this.  Only $325,000 total, but still…!!! [[FYI, I tend to doubt this particular mis-spelling was accidental….]] ALL these awards came under category CFDA 93592, “Family Violence Prevention and Services/Grants for Battered Women’s Shelters: Discretionary Grants” Award Activity Type, “Social Services”:  “B Yr” = “Budget Year”

Searching “SD DV Council” (written out) I see that from 2004-2007 the President of said “San Diego Domestic Violence Council” was a woman who in 2013 is on the Family-court-connected, Access-Visitation-interested nonprofit I’ve blogged (early on, and a lot), called “KIDS TURN”:

Did any basic citizens, like the parents themselves, get together and sponsor a bill saying, “Our services are too fragmented — can you centralize them, please?” and get that bill signed from popular support? NO!!! It was a top-down, copycat other states (or regions) concept from the start!!! This is in my opinion why, since the “CADV” component began aligning itself at the state level, violence against women, particularly surrounding custody cases, has gotten worse and worse…Case-dumping, money-moving and the involvement of the family law situation at the agency level has made it impossible to properly confront this element as a factor in the problem of DV.  Their Board [Blogger Technical note:  “Hispanos Unidos de Buffalo” belongs probably under DV Service providers above (blue-background table].  Sometimes a single html code spits something outside the borders of a table.  As I’m not current (1/15/2014, when I’m about to publish it) on the contents of this blog, please see the related links for a more “closer to the source” identification of the providers.]] Hispanos Unidos de Buffalo, Inc. 254 Virginia Street · Buffalo, NY 14201- · Business Phone:  (716)856-7110 Program Types:  Non-Residential Suicide Prevention & Crisis Services, Inc. 2969 Main Street · Buffalo, NY 14214-1003 · Business Phone:  (716)834-2310 Program Types:  Non-Residential

.. Another example — as Erie County New York comes up (below) — here’s their YE2012 “CAFR” (see http://Cafrman.com if you still don’t understand what these are, or google Walter Burien.  Or, read the one I’m linking to– which explains itself well enough — just not what it signifies that most of us don’t know about CAFRs… Erie County has Buffalo, and SUNY at Buffalo, and, not counting the county New York City is in, is apparently only ONE of 57 NY counties.  Early pages describe the component units of government — and  “Social Service District” isn’t one, because that’s a State term for distributing social services — and money relating to them.  It really has more to do (I think) with HHS (federal) than a POLITICAL part of government. Social Service Districts are ADMINISTRATIVE units for organizational purposes.  It was news to me, til I found the memo talking about how to grab extra money for fatherhood funding!!! Erie County (New York)’s CAFR on page “viii” shows an organizational flow chart –most CAFRs seem to have them, and they are GOOD diagrams to look at; telling who’s underneath whom (i.e., responsibility/authority) — showing that “social services” comes under a “Deputy County” (Supervisor or some name.  See that page).  Elsewhere, we see how much funds are available (because “receivable”) for just this ONE county: Look at their fund balances.  From “page 47, Receivables due from Other Governments” (there’s also a table on the same page, it shows where money is coming from, and how much) Major revenues accrued by the County in the various governmental fund types at December 31, 2012 include sales and use taxes in excess of $50,505,817; state and federal assistance for social services of $100,850,051; and other state and federal aid (including grants) approximating $99,649,117.    Receivables at year-end of the County’s major individual funds and non-major funds in the aggregate, including the applicable allowances for uncollectible accounts, are as follows (dollars in thousands). That’s not what they HAVE, just what they are DUE. Here’s a bit of description (FYI) from page 32, bottom, just to show that there are these different kind of funds and “Government-wide” doesn’t include all of them!  (more at the CAFRman site): While separate government-wide and fund financial statements are presented, they are interrelated. The governmental activities column incorporates data from governmental funds and internal service funds, while business-type activities incorporate data from the government’s enterprise funds. Separate financial statements are provided for governmental funds, proprietary funds, and fiduciary funds, even though the latter are excluded from the government-wide financial statements.

  1. All right, well THAT was a sloppy post. I see the extra work I went to to shrink margins (in the TAGGS tables) didn’t take. Luckily anyone can actually click on the active links in those tables, whether it’s a group name, or a GRANTS name — and see it from TAGGS itself. One group I believe is interesting (remembering previous lookups from long ago) is the Osborne Association, Inc. I believe they were mentoring children of prisoners.

    Key coastal states of:
    New York
    California
    Texas and
    Florida

    are always interesting studies — as pointed out by C.A. Fitts in “Narco Dollars for Dummies” they are large coastal states where lots of drugs can, and do, seem to come in. Drug profits (which are tax-free as they are obviously illegal to start with), she says (as a former FHA assistant secretary responsible for millions of Mortgage-Backed Securities (?) that HUD owned and as a graduate of Wharton in PA, not to mention her mother was on a Federal Reserve Board (as I recall) — she understands such things, and explains them well.

    Speaking of which:
    Where does the money go, which is made from drug profits. In part, real estate development. See HUD.

    So, when we then look more closely at the COURT and other related systems in these key states, it can give major clues to the rest of the country. Of course the Midwest States have their centers also (like Chicago). Currently I’ve been kinda stuck on “Baltimore “area because of their UBaltimore School of Law and it’s “CFCC” under (AFCC groupie — but very academically credentialed (like, Cornell) associate law proressor) Barbara Babb. Baltimore, MD is also so close to Washington D.C. and so it’s also key from that perspective. However, they organize and strategize through the trade association nonprofits and their conferences, among other things. It’s truly fascinating, the level of advance planning involved in co-opting the wealth of the country through the courts — and doing this with a straight face. Perhaps many are simply innocent and sincere in all this; others have been doing it for so long, they’re indoctrinated.

    And there then there are the sheer sociopaths who tend to be expert at the philanthropy and altruism facade.
