Dont' be distracted by the foolish antics of an idiot. There's idiots on all sides of every debate. The issue is who is best for our country, state, county or city whatever the case may be. I'm not familiar with any of these candidates so I fear my choice might be a bad one. In these cases I will vote the Republican because I am familiar with the general platform. I'm looking for a source of information that might help me get familiar. Anybody have a suggestion? Know this though, under NO circumstances will I vote a Democrat. Their platform is Anti-USA and Anti-God, they can go straight to hell for all I care.

The CAFR is the Holy Grail of any local government's accounting. Gerald was the "only" individual in the country or the world that did a CAFR review for "public" consumption. Since the CAFR accounting structure was implemented starting in 1946 up until Gerald's death in 2004 or thereafter - No other CAFR review or open mention of any significance from any individual within: The government - they did not present a CAFR review; no political party did; nor any media News branch - TV expose or in Print form from the syndicated media. The "Silence is Golden rule" was strictly enforced it appears over the last 100 years. This could be a long shot guess on my part but I think the silence was due to the massive money, ownership showing, and "collective" wealth accumulation involved. Could be wrong here but like I said just a guess.

Paul; YOU ASKED THE WRONG QUESTION. The only questioned asked should have been: When will a complete surplus audit review of the "State" CAFR be released.... The "City" CAFRs...The "County" CAFRs..... "The School District" CAFRs.... The "Enterprise" CAFRs..... "with" a consolidated report to show the "collective" holdings from all of the before-mentioned...?

I note that you should ask the same question to: Any Candidate in or running for office; any Political Party; State University; National Media Outlet - print or Network TV.

You see the State CAFR is only but one (1) CAFR or AFR produced by local governments "in" the State. There are over several thousand local government operations from "within" the State. A showing from all of their CAFRs or AFRs would dwarf any showing of just "a" State Government Inc. CAFR.

Now that you know the impact question to ask, you should hear only the following replies:

1. The Surplus Audit Review will be ready on x date and from x department or individual.

2. We have never done that and have no intention of ever doing that so don't waste our time by asking again.

3. No reply. Silence; or intentional obfuscation that is so off base to the very clear; basic; and simple question asked.

You see Paul the take-over game run by government for the last 100 years has been so successful on the "collective" government basis that it gives the definition to a wet dream of Russia from the 1930's per control; ownership; and wealth generation for this government or any government in the communist government's perspective.

Read and let sink in well what I recently put up on my CAFR1.com front page with that being:...

What St. Augustine had to say about what we now call government:

"A gang is a group of men under the command of a leader, bound by a compact of association, in which the plunder is divided according to an agreed convention.

If this villainy wins so many recruits from the ranks of the demoralized that it acquires territory, establishes a base, captures cities and subdues peoples, it then openly arrogates to itself the title of kingdom, which is conferred on it in the eyes of the world, not by the renunciation of aggression, but by the attainment of impunity"

Your Choices in the Political arena: Indeed, the plunder has become so common, and the plunderers so smug and self-confident, that their predations are taken for granted, and the thieves themselves treated with extraordinary deference! It is something akin to the Stockholm syndrome. You encounter the same mugger at the same spot every day, and eventually establish a sort of bizarre relationship with him----even, eventually, thanking him for not taking more. When you are given the opportunity to replace him with another mugger, you vote for the incumbent---sticking with the devil you know, unless his opponent offers to share more of his loot with you.

Subject: Question about 2009 CAFR for the Washington State Government: Why the huge discrepancies?
To: [email protected]
Cc: [email protected], [email protected], [email protected]

http://www.ofm.wa.gov/cafr/2009/05entitywide....

Greetings Office of Financial Management:

My office legally represents the United States ex rel. before the U.S. Bankruptcy Court
for the Eastern District of Washington.

In your Comprehensive Annual Financial Report ("CAFR") ending June 30, 2009,
kindly confirm that these summary statistics are correct:

Total Assets:$538,173,000
Total Liabilities:$ 73,720,000
Total Net Assets:$464,453,000

We read these numbers to say that the Washington State Government
enjoyed a positive balance of $464 Million for the Fiscal Year ending
June 30, 2009.

Are we reading these numbers correctly?

Also, we do not find your CAFR ending June 30, 2010.
Can you please point us to that document too?

The main reason why we are asking the above questions is
the verifiable claims made by Lt. Col. Gerald R. Klatt, USAF (retired) here:

http://www.cafrman.com/Articles/Art-WA-S1.htm

Specifically:
"Washington has at least $20.28 Billion in surpluses
of the taxpayers money it is not using." [emphasis added]

More specifically, Mr. Klatt claims that the following items are NOT shown
in any of the CAFR surplus(es):

The following items are not included in the amount of surplus shown:

-Buildings, roads, bridges, land (not for sale), and equipment.

-Deferred compensation plans for employees. These are plans in which the employee contributes to his/her retirement over and above the normal employee retirement contribution.

-Any fund that is 100% supported by donations, bequests, gifts, endowments, etc. These are not taxpayers money.

-For Colleges and Universities. All endowment and similar-type funds should not be included as surpluses. Sometimes these funds are combined with other college/university funds. We are interested in surpluses, so in these cases the total amount should not be included.

-Funds in which the revenues/contributions are 100% held for other individuals, organizations or another government.

-Funds that are required by law in which a bank, financial institution, insurance companies, etc. are required to deposit with the government a certain amount for insurance against the entity going bankrupt. These are not taxpayers' money.

-Retirement/Pension Funds - only included are 1/2 of the actuarially determined excesses, the taxpayers portion. The other 1/2 is the government employees portion.

If Mr. Klatt is correct, then why are you not including any of these items
in your Comprehensive Annual Financial Reports; and, moreover
what is the true "surplus", please?

Thank you very much.

Just a Note: Someone posted as Walter Burien (Toronto Canada) and it should have been 4Walter Burien.. This is Walter Burien and Susan Combs is A-OK in my book.

She is a good assignment manager of public funds and 5 steps ahead of the rest when it comes down to transparency towards public funds / investments held through and by TX State government Inc.

I do though wish that she would make available a showing of the "other" local government funds / investments held "in" the state of Texas by the several thousand or so City; County; School District; and Enterprise entities from within the State of Texas. Here the "collective" totals dwarf the State's showing. Collective totals of all local governments from within the state of Texas in combination with the State Government Inc. showing would be up around as a conservative number about Six to Seven trillion dollars.

A showing of the collective totals from"all" local governments "in" Texas, now that I would call "true" and "complete" transparency of disclosure and a "real" eye opener as to how wealthy the people of Texas truly are.

PS: And hopefully if they do give that showing, they won't play the Net vs. Gross showing of the end figures...

For the readers of this string of comments I strongly suggest that you look at the Texas State Government Inc.'s "Cash report" that can be downloaded here - http://cafr1.com/STATES/TEXAS/

After doing so, then think of the "collective" totals from "all" local governments in the State of Texas.

After doing so you will realize the World (and Texas) is a lot different then you had ever imagined "AND" you will realize just how effective the decades of entertainment you have been while you were spoon fed selective presentation to the advantage of an internal oligarchy's wealth accumulation at your expense through the masterful presentation of a false reality inherently designed to keep you at bay as your inheritance of life; liberty; and wealth was secured by another controlling the "selective presentation" forced upon you that determined the parameter beliefs of your perceived world .
