Another doc that wasn’t accessible was Judge Leibensperger’s order (Paper #37) – that’s the one that confirms that partners in a close corporation have a duty of utmost loyalty towards each other. Here is the link. Sorry about that and thanks for letting me know.

It was brought to my attention that Beracah’s and Ross’s affidavits were not accessible. They are accessible now. Google Docs troubles. Sorry about that
Please let me know if any other files are not accessible and it will be fixed.
Motion to Sanction Fitzpatrick – cause he really shouldn’t be lying or attacking a shareholder in a close corporation.
It seems that we as a society are gradually moving away from our foundation and principles: respect for individual liberties, innocent until proven guilty, etc. Heard a thought this weekend (Yuri? dad?) that our government is gradually eroding our rights and liberties in the name of convenience. And now we’ve ended up with a situation when Manning (Wikipedia) and Snowden (Wikipedia) were able to access incredibly important information (ridiculous in itself if it’s “so secret!”), the government has been able to put Weev (Wikipedia) into prison, and there are numerous other transgressions, which we don’t realize until we’ve come face to face with it.
Morning read: Salon – “Why did you shoot me? I was reading a book”: The new warrior cop is out of control – the lack of transparency and accountability seem striking. It’s further upsetting that these things are done with my tax money. Another instance where we need to push our society to evolve.
Today I had the appeals process demystified. Originally, I was working off a rather confusing blog post from the Law Library. I got through the first step, but just spoke with a clerk at the Supreme Judicial Court for the County of Suffolk and he has shed some light on the mess. I documented what I learned on Wiki-Law: Appeals. But, the gist of it is this – you have five courts:
- Lower Court
- Appeals Court
- Supreme Judicial Court
- US District Court
- US Supreme Court
Let’s talk about making decisions. Cause I get to phofphelesziz… (dude next to me at Tosca suggested “proselytize”… that’s almost the word, though not quite… Gah! Where is Fitzpatrick when you need him?!)
First, a very important question: What do I want?
Simple: I want to be happy 1) personally and 2) professionally. Both must fit within certain constraints. What are they?
Constraint 1: Regret
When faced with any difficult decision, I ask: “What will I regret in the future?” That is, wa-a-a-ay out in the future, assuming that I grow old without growing senile. All minutiae promptly crumbles off the core often clearing the path to a decision.
I am ashamed to be an American today. I learned about TheListProject.org.
Synopsis: Iraqis who helped US in Iraq during and after the war have put themselves in danger and are now being murdered in Iraq, because US failed to protect them or take them in as refugees. US had a moral obligation, went through the motions (senate passed a law allocating 25,000 visas), but…
The machine that should have allowed people to immigrate failed.
Example: a guy worked as a forklift operator, attempted to immigrate as a refugee, provided US Immigration everything needed, had the American company he worked for vouch for him, and yet the system dragged the process on failing to adequately handle his case. He started the process on June 28th, 2011. Around June 2012, he was murdered. (source: http://www.thisamericanlife.org/takingnames/)
