Vital Info: “Sticky” Posts Now Listed Here [Publ. 2/9/2017, rev. 5/26, 6/19, and 10/1/2017]

with 3 comments

Adjusted Title of this post with its WordPress-generated, case-sensitive short-link ending “-5MQ” is: Vital Info: “Sticky” Posts (Now Listed Here)   [Publ. 2/9/2017, rev. 5/26, 6/19, and 10/1/2017]** {{INCLUDING THAT SHORT-LINK HELPS ME, THE BLOG ADMINISTRATOR (AND THE ONLY ONE POSTING HERE) KEEP LINKS ACCURATE AS I AM WRITING POSTS CLOSELY RELATED IN  SUBJECT MATTER SERIES, WHEN POSTS ARE REFERENCED, SPLIT, OR EXPANDED}}


**The Oct. 1, 2017 adjustment notes that (now my Jan. 9, 2017 Table of Contents Page*** is updated through Sept. 21, and better explained and displayed for prior years back to Sept. 24, 2012) I’ve added two more “sticky posts” relevant to current blogging and principles I continue to emphasize.  This table format matches their look on the Table of Contents 2017 page (yellow-background), with the second one including an annotated screenprint on the title row.

***Table of Contents Page, updated: 2017 Table of Contents Continues Themes From 2016. See TOC for: (1) 2017 now thru March Sept. 21; (2) 2016 All; (3) Sept. 2012 – June 2014, Reverse Chrono, and (4) See Also More Info Below. (case-sensitive, WordPress-generated shortlink-ends 5qZ, first published Jan. 9, 2017, second half of post title and substantial updates added in late September, 2017).

I’ll list the two additional Sticky posts again below without all the highlighting but with the links and their dates.  The other sticky posts presented earlier are on a specific format to feature them.  These being more recent may have much more explicit financial detail with annotated images throughout.  Both feature major movements in place for many years designed to affect future generations.  These two my posts express the continuing problems posed by missing financial statements of major, influential government entities and (the second post) document a supposed expert that failed to even demonstrate the ability to read financial statements (as opposed to notes to the same) and get the labels, let alone categories, straight, about such a major category as “fiduciary funds” and where “CalPERS” (for the State of California) falls within that category.  The author who fails to read straight (actually, more than one) has published books on debt and is pushing for “State-Run Banks” as the solution to it.

Moral of the story?  We need to learn the basics ourselves to understand when those claiming to present them, aren’t, which quite often, they just aren’t!

<==I just decided this post will be marked “STICKY,” and post closer to top of blog. It’s recent and helps pull together details on topics I’m still blogging (Sept. 2017).  Rather than “index” its tags, I’m sticking them in this table row, as a clickable-screenprint (to enlarge) for an idea of the range of topics it covers.

46 To Identify and UNDERstand is To Know Why (and How) to WITHstand. (The Public’s Assigned Place on the Tax Continuum Pecking Order). [from “Do You Know Your ABA, APA…?” Oct. 2014 Post Update @07/18/2017] July 18, 2017

The post’s former motto, displayed in top-right corner, has been obscured by the title once I upgraded the blog. I moved the former motto into the title (Site Identity) area, and changed the motto. It’s still not fully visible, so, for the record, here it is as of “Q1” 2017:

A Different Kind of Attention Develops Sound Judgment’ | ‘Suppose I’m Right Here?…‘ (posted 3/23 & 3/5/2014).

Over 680 posts, Public-Interest Investigative Blogging On These Matters Since 2009.

(Make that now, “over 720 posts….”)
 So, the blog motto clearly references two posts (no longer “sticky”) which demonstrate my practices (“A Different Kind of Attention“) and my basic question, based on those practices over now many years, “Suppose I’m Right Here?  What Would You Do When the Lights Go On?”  (Would it change your personal cause-focused social media behavior or “leisure time”?) If I’m right (and I typically link to supporting evidence and coherent connections between the various parts of it; if there is missing evidence or improper connections/assumptions others can see) what logical (even if seemingly impossible at first) changes should be made to major systems, infrastructures, and practices involving “business as usual” in the public sphere– which is in effect now a “public/private partnership” sphere?

If you (personally) are just not willing or able to make any significant changes to what you repeat, parrot, re-blog or even what you look into regularly, to better understand public/private financing, government statements, federal grants as distributed, the grantees, or the multitude of professional associations developed around basic governmental positions (National Governors Association, and MANY others others), then on what basis are you complaining about government practices?  These practices occur in the context of networks of nonprofit organizations which conference with each other and with membership, often out of sight or out of mind of the average citizen. ****

**** I keep encountering more of this type of nonprofit association, some which have existed for decades, others (such as the National Council on School Facilities) are recent creations. This post will explain, and list more:

Published without tags, about 13,500 words (including captions to its many images), Friday, June 16, 2017.

By the time you read this, if you’re still in denial about the extensive networks of private associations involving government officials on the board, or restricted to them as members (but — hey, let’s not reject some donations — not as sponsoring partners or “Associates”) and that while government at different levels continues to fund such entities, they aren’t exactly advertising the inter-relationships on gov’t websites, or the financials on the association websites — and that these associations operate in the private, nonprofit sector with intent to affect the government sector (at all levels) bypassing normal input from citizens — then please seek personal help.  Fast.  You’re cognitively disabled.

New professions and fields of practice (leading to the overuse of the word “practitioner”) are created through public institutions sometimes as an apparent consequence of these trade organizations.  When those in them and setting them up know more about the status of government entity financing than the citizens overall, where is the balance of power?
