The Whigs Band is Great - but playing "Out of Control" is questionable

                                          "The Whigs"
                                                                   Play Out of 'Control'

I am cute and white but I am NOT a Whig.  I do not bite. 
I do not want to be beaten up with a baseball bat or club either.
I wonder if there is hope for me?

January 30, 2008 - A year ago, Rolling Stone called The Whigs "the best unsigned band in America."

With ink like that and the band's trademark ear-blistering live shows, it wasn't long before Dave Matthews' ATO Records took notice and signed the group to a multi-album deal.

The Whigs' first record, Mission Control, has drawn comparisons to both Nirvana and Superchunk. They stopped by the Bryant Park Project and showcased some of their songs, including "Like a Vibration," a stripped-down number from their latest album."

Here is another interpretation of "The Whigs"( a little history):

Founded 1678
Dissolved 1868

Preceded by: Country party
Succeeded by: Liberal Party
Ideology: Classical liberalism, Constitutional monarchism,
Rule of law
International affiliation: None
Official colours: orange; buff and blue

The Whigs were a party in the Parliament of England, Parliament of Great Britain, and Parliament of the United Kingdom, who contested power with the rival Tories from the 1680s to the 1850s. The Whigs' origin lay in constitutional monarchism and opposition to absolute rule. Both parties began as loose groupings or tendencies, but became quite formal by 1784, with the ascension of Charles James Fox as the leader of a reconstituted "Whig" party ranged against the governing party of the new "Tories" under William Pitt the Younger. Both parties were founded on rich politicians, more than on popular votes; there were elections to the House of Commons, but a small number of men controlled most of the voters.

The Whig party slowly evolved during the 18th century. The Whig tendency supported the great aristocratic families, the Protestant Hanoverian succession and toleration for nonconformist Protestants (the "dissenters," such as Presbyterians), while some Tories supported the exiled Stuart royal family's claim to the throne (Jacobitism), and virtually all Tories supported the established Church of England and the gentry. Later on, the Whigs drew support from the emerging industrial interests and wealthy merchants, while the Tories drew support from the landed interests and the royal family. The Whigs were originally also known as the "Country Party" (as opposed to the Tories, the "Court Party"). By the first half of the 19th century, however, the Whig political programme came to encompass not only the supremacy of parliament over the monarch and support for free trade, but Catholic emancipation, the abolition of slavery and expansion of the franchise (suffrage).

The term Whig was originally short for 'whiggamor', a nickname for western Scots who came to Leith for corn. In the reign of Charles II (1660-85) the term was used during Wars of the Three Kingdoms to refer derisively to a radical faction of the Scottish Covenanters who called themselves the "Kirk Party" (see the Whiggamore Raid). It was then applied to Scottish presbyterian rebels who were against the King's episcopalian order in Scotland.[1] The term 'Whig' entered English political discourse during the Exclusion Bill crisis of 1678–1681 when there was controversy about whether or not Charles's brother, James, should be allowed to succeed to the throne on Charles's death. 'Whig' was a term of abuse applied to those who wanted to exclude James on the grounds that he was a Roman Catholic. The fervent Tory Samuel Johnson often cracked that "the first Whig was the Devil."[2]

Whig supremacy
John Somers, 1st Baron SomersWith the succession in 1714 of Elector George Louis of Hanover as King George I, the Whigs returned to government. The Jacobite Uprising of 1715 discredited much of the Tory party as traitorous Jacobites, and Whig control of the levers of power (e.g., through the Septennial Act) ensured that the Whigs became the dominant party of government. During the long period between 1714 and 1760, the Tories practically died out as an active political force, although they always retained a considerable presence in the House of Commons. The governments of Robert Walpole and the Pelhams, Henry Pelham and his older brother the Duke of Newcastle, between them ruled between 1721 and 1756 with only one brief break and the leading elements referred to themselves as "Whigs."

from Wikipedia: the free enclyclopedia:
When did the Whigs come back, and become uniformed police beating people up with clubs as part of corruption?  This was obvious in the Rodney King beating trail which took place in Cincinnati, Ohio. Those "Whigs" were not peacable of friendly, but the Whigs in general could be some part of Social Policy again, or maybe they already did, and this information was not covered.  My ex-brother-in-law, Kenneth N. Bauer and his family went to Great Britain.  Some of the men from a men's police/klan meeting moaned because they claimed that Ken Bauer was never a police agent, and did not understand why he was supposed to go to Great Britain on a pleasure trip with his family.  Amazingly, although none of this appeared in the media, we have not had a British Royal couple launch or wedding for decades now.  Prince William is set to marry Kate Middleton, as part of current events, but 'something' stopped this from occurring, and such has been the case since Princess Diana's death.

Travonna's in Columbus, Ohio

Travonna's was involved with Braziliam coffee bean issue, which include South American coffee Bean grower issues.
They have great entertainment also on the weekends.

The original positioning, which had to do with drunks versus
coffee drinkers could have been missed.
Travonnas say that they are not Whigs with clubs to beat people up, to get their issue in,
so they may have been missed in the past.

From The US Commodity Futures Trading Commission

This is the problem  I don't have any idea what futures or commodities or trading in them means.  oops!
Everyone who has no knoweldge of this is now supposed to be a stupid victim, huh?  Oh boy!

Arizona Federal Court Imposes More than $1.1 Million in Restitution and Monetary Sanctions on Helmut H. Weber, Charged with Fraud and Misappropriation in Foreign Currency Scheme

Washington, DC – The U.S. Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) obtained a federal court order imposing more than $1.1 million in restitution and civil monetary penalties on Helmut H. Weber, of Scottsdale, Ariz., for operating a fraudulent off-exchange foreign currency (forex) scheme from at least June 2008 through January 2009. The final default judgment order, entered by Judge David G. Campbell of the U.S. District Court for the District of Arizona, requires Weber to pay $287,000 in restitution to defrauded customers and a $861,000 civil monetary penalty.

The order stems from a CFTC complaint filed on March 9, 2010, which alleged that Weber, through personal solicitations and his websites, fraudulently solicited customers to invest in forex trading (see CFTC press release 5794, March 11, 2010). The complaint also alleged that, contrary to Weber’s representations, only a fraction of customer funds were actually traded and that the majority of the funds were misappropriated to pay for Weber’s lavish lifestyle.

A final judgment against Weber, previously entered by the court on December 9, 2010, permanently prohibits Weber from engaging in any commodity-related activity and from registering with the CFTC. In the final judgment, Judge Campbell found that Weber made multiple misrepresentations and deceptive omissions, including that Weber was a successful and experienced forex trader, that 100 percent of invested funds would be used to trade in the forex market and that Weber generated high rates of return from forex trading. The judge found that Weber knowingly was misappropriating customer funds, was not trading on customers’ behalf and was issuing false reports to customers.

Previously, on October 22, 2008, Weber was criminally indicted by the Arizona Attorney General in State of Arizona v. Helmut H. Weber, Superior Court of the State of Arizona, Maricopa County, (Case Number 63 SGJ 50 (2008)) for fraud and misappropriation of customer funds.

The CFTC appreciates the assistance of the Arizona Corporation Commission, Securities Division, and the Office of the Arizona Attorney General.

The monied path is closed to people who are not educated about it or how to walk down that path.
The CFTC Division of Enforcement staff members responsible for this case are Timothy J. Mulreany, Tracey Wingate, Michael Amakor, Paul Hayeck and Joan Manley.

"Everyday Problems": Making it in a World Set To Shut Down

Everyday Problems - making it in a world set to shut down

The story of Chuck, Louise and Sylvia
     "It takes all kinds", he said to himself as he slowly walked down the red brick alley.  The bricks were uneven, and the worn sole of his show caught on one of the edges of a brick.  The tavern was on the street also, with it's grey brick front, and red brick abutment.  He knew that he would approach the tavern soon, with it's beer of the world, women of the world, and loud music.  "Why did she have to do that", he thought again to himself.  I can't believe that I have to live my life like this to be embarrassed all of the time.  Why can't she consider my feelings too?  She was already in Lockbourne Psychiatric Hospital for two and three quarters of a year, to get better.  I missed her while she was gone.  Now I would like to kill her, and wonder why I took her back to begin with.  The kids and I did well without her.  If she stayed there why did they not help her to change there then?  Maybe I should find a good lawyer to sue them.  I did not divorce my wife because I knew she was sick, but I ......."Hi!", the brassy haired woman said from the door of the tavern.  He long hair hung down almost to her back.  She was pretty by all standards, and was one of the owners of "The Red Tavern", and was known by the people in the neighborhood, and many others.  The evening was warm, and the sky was clear.  "I remember you from high school.  Remember me?  Louise Manning."

     The man stopped thinking and stopped muttering to himself and stopped period, when the woman shouted out to him.  He was relieved and said maybe I need to stop in and have a drink or two.  It did not matter whether she or some other person was standing there, to be honest, because the man had an issue that he was not interested in discussing.  He liked to drink, have relationships with the gang who was there, and the woman who was involved with him, in her absence developed other relationships with other people.  She, his wife as of now, still was married to him and was placed on heavy psychotropic drugs. be continued.....

     This is an example of an affected family.  The children might be affected also, if they exist in this family.  The people in the relationship both need help, but are not getting the help that they need for one reason or another, or the help received was ineffective.  The outcome of the above story is less significant that how the people act and react while in the situation.  They are part of some community of others, or maybe many communities - like church, a neighborhood, a school system if they have children, and interface with many others as well.  They affect people around them, whose lives they touch. 

     The story could develop in one way or another, but the point is that "something here" has to change.  Life is not stable, and is constantly is stasis.  If the people in the above story are famous, they still have the same issues, but crooks 'pounce' on them, in an effort to cause additional trouble.  

     When I was in an abusive relationship, nothing I said or did made any difference.  The world waiting to shut down teory was more identifiable and prevalent that a "World Waiting To Be Born" in theory.  This is because in abusive relationships, people have a way of stagnating, shutting down, and not being who they want to be or were.  The abusive relationship I was in was accentuated by a government shutdown, thanks to crooks not doing what they were supposed to in the state of Ohio.  This is not the first time I had to pick up the slack for others who were nonfunctional or dydfunctional.  This is one of my major issues - to not be in positions of being abused if I can help it, and not being that available, if I can help it.  The need to be assistive in this case overrode intelligence and the need to flee and not be trapped in dysfunction, so what occurred in essence was more resiliance training, or the ability to adjust and readjust.  Since my abusive spouse and the 'imposed position' I got stuck with did not want to accomadate me, rather than be depressed and become more lethargic, I am now looking at books to buy a house, and not be stuck with the same old people in thje same old ditch, because someone trapped me out of need, spite, or whatever their motive was.  I am a person who deserves to be paid, and make a living wage, and intent to do so.  To accomplish this goal, I now have to move to another state, which is not as crooked, rotten, dirty, and has gone through changes within the state's structure already.  

     Green Restorations, Sustainable Building and Historic Homes, by Aaron Lubeck, is a book I found recently that is of interest.  Like an old friend, I need to find this book again after moving, because it details rehabing an older home from start to finish.  The book is published by New Society Publishers, and the author is a partner with the award winning Trinity Design/Build, a restoration and preservation consultancy in North Carolina.  Another good book that seems to go hand in hand with the first is called Kitchen and Bath Design, A Guide to Planning Basics, by Mary Fisher Knott, CID.  The publisher is Wiley located at  These two books, used hand in hand are part of future goals to escape from dysfunction and build a new life, which people have to do at some point rather than just 'jump on'.  The dysfunction occurred in my life not because of things I had control of, but things unplanned over which I had zero control.  

     Two other books which I would like to encounter again are the following: New Resume, New Career by Catherine Jewel - The Career Passion Coach.  "To all job seekers who honor the small, insistent voice within urgin you to create your perfect work in a job you love.  I admire your courage and marvel at your resilience, talents, and tenacity, " is a direct quote from the author.  This book seems to be filled with all kinds of strategeties for reentering the job market in an area that the individual designs.  For instance on pages 175 to 177, there is a series about changing career paths from being a Social Worker to being a Program Manager.  This book is another friend that I would like to encounter again.  Another good book is called "The 101 Laws of Career Reinvention: Essential Survival Skills for The Economy ",by Pamela Mitchell, founder of the Reinvention Institute.  I know that it is God's will that I have a continued life, and not wither and die in an area of low employment.  I also want to experience a warmer climate.

Under Investigation: "All afire into a blaze: ARSON - dum de dum de dum" by Kimberly Koerber-Bauer-Koerber

Three cars caught on fire during the course of my marriage.

I got paid Zero times.
Cars were supposed intentionally set - one blew up on the freeway.

I made no insurance money then either like when I was robbed in Wooster, but I suspect my abusive ex husband did make money.

Maybe someday I will write a song or a story about this experience.

Not yet.

The Whitehall Fire Department is curfently being overused.  I read that in another city, not Columbus, Ohio this was done to call attention to the Fire Department aas a political gesture, to get additional funding.   

Maybe that is the truth for here also - maybe not.

Playing with Fire

Complaint submitted to the city of Columbus - only 100 characters allowed...

HAHAHAHAHAHA - by Kimberly Koerber-Bauer-Koerber
Maybe this problem has to do with getting no divorce settlement,
abuse by white gang members and
a development program known as "Whigs"
beng used by certain crooks in Ohio and should also be
placed under investigation

Actual complaint submitted:

Please provide specific information regarding your request.

   Can you please see my blogspot posting of today on

This street sign pointing toward
'heaven'  may have been what crooks
intended for me ( or the opposite)
after robbing me in Wooster, Ohio
and then stalking me to Louisville Kentucky to take my
luggage, and to Marion Ohio to take my birth certificate.
I heard that crooks were supposed to trade my
birth certificate in for
a death certificate in an Ohio game that they created.
I can't do anything back because I have no money, job, or car thanks
to abuse in Ohio for the last 15 years on the police auditory
network and
in life.
I tried to submit a complaint to the City of Columbus, Ohio today but the web site would not take any information.  the thing is that someone in the 'auditory' mode was talking about the walking path beside the creek just up from 2000 E. Main Street, Columbus, Ohio  43205 being blocked off, but this was heard during the day.  The person sounded like a dingbat.  Then, the point was that there is a Hillbilly firewood lot on the side of Kroger, but behind Kroger.  They really should take down the trees closest to the creek, not have a terrorist online talking about this area being a hideout for crooks to encourage this type of thing.  Trash, old clothing, and other debris are there to be seen and be laughed at by the 'funny' person talking about this as heard by many, many people.  The debris is indicative of the fact that there really are crooks hiding out in that area, and with the streetlights being turned off intentionally, and with the other  things that have occurred in my life, including haiving no car and having to wait for the bus in the dark, the situation was no joke, but terroristic.  In addition to this,  someone turned off the string of street lights on the other side of E. Main Street, including the bus shelter area to make the area unsafe.  I had to stand there last night to wait for the bus with groceries and it was somewhat unsafe and very dark.  My ex-husband, Jerry L. Bauer was an abuser but was made in to a hero by crooks from Collective Bargaining who were then supposed to be rewarded with jobs with the state and Federal Government.  KI was robbed, assaulted in Wooster, and have no idea where our son, Justin Bauer Currently is.  Jerry L:. Bauer made himself into an important Gangster icon by insulting and abusing me for years.  He is affiliated with Eddie Bauer and other Bauer Companies.  This misoperation of the City may be due to him and his friends who got on the payroll but are not qualified.  This is why I am interested in moving to another state, in addition to some of the things that appear on this blog spot as abuse.

Michael: Please click on this link for information regarding how to cancel an EIN Account.


Canceling an EIN - Closing Your Account

Once an EIN has been assigned to a business entity, it becomes the permanent Federal taxpayer identification number for that entity. Regardless of whether the EIN is ever used to file Federal tax returns, the EIN is never reused or reassigned to another business entity.

The IRS cannot cancel your EIN. However, if you receive an EIN but later determine you do not need the number (the new business never started up, for example), the IRS can close your business account. The EIN will still belong to the business entity and can be used at a later date, should the need arise.

To close your business account, write to us at: Internal Revenue Service, Cincinnati, Ohio 45999 and state the reason you wish to close your account. If you have a copy of the EIN Assignment Notice that was issued when your EIN was assigned, include that when you write. Otherwise, be sure to include the complete legal name of the entity, the EIN, and the business address.
Note: If (1) you made a Federal Tax Deposit or other Federal tax payment, (2) are liable for any Business Taxes, or (3) the IRS has notified you that a business tax return is due, you must file the appropriate tax return(s) before we can close your account. See Closing a Business Checklist for other actions you may need to take.

Information for Exempt Organizations

If you applied for an EIN for an exempt organization that (1) never applied for formal exemption, (2) is not covered in a group ruling, or (3) never filed an information return, send a letter requesting the closing of your account to:

Internal Revenue Service
Attn: EO Entity
Mail Stop 6273
Ogden, UT 84201

(or you may fax it to (801) 620-3249 or (801) 620-3263).

State the reason you wish to close your account. If you have a copy of the EIN Assignment Notice that was issued when your EIN was assigned, you should include that when you write. Otherwise, be sure to include the complete legal name of the entity, the EIN, and the mailing address.

If you are an exempt organization that does not meet the criteria above, see Termination of an Exempt Organization.

For additional information on dissolving an exempt organization, call (877) 829-5500.

Rate the Small Business and Self-Employed Web Site


How to Apply for an EIN

If you are a home-care service recipient who has a previously assigned EIN either as a sole proprietor or as a household employer, do not apply for a new EIN. Use the EIN previously provided. If you can not locate your EIN for any reason, follow the instructions on the Misplaced Your EIN? Web page.

Apply Online

The Internet EIN application is the preferred method for customers to apply for and obtain an EIN. Once the application is completed, the information is validated during the online session, and an EIN is issued immediately. The online application process is available for all entities whose principal business, office or agency, or legal residence (in the case of an individual), is located in the United States or U.S. Territories. The principal officer, general partner, grantor, owner, trustor etc. must have a valid Taxpayer Identification Number (Social Security Number, Employer Identification Number, or Individual Taxpayer Identification Number) in order to use the online application.

Apply By EIN Toll-Free Telephone Service

Taxpayers can obtain an EIN immediately by calling the Business & Specialty Tax Line at (800) 829-4933. The hours of operation are 7:00 a.m. - 10:00 p.m. local time, Monday through Friday. An assistor takes the information, assigns the EIN, and provides the number to an authorized individual over the telephone. Note: International applicants must call (267) 941-1099 (Not a toll-free number).

Apply By FAX

Taxpayers can FAX the completed Form SS-4 (PDF) application to their state FAX number (see Where to File - Business Forms and Filing Addresses), after ensuring that the Form SS-4 contains all of the required information. If it is determined that the entity needs a new EIN, one will be assigned using the appropriate procedures for the entity type. If the taxpayer's fax number is provided, a fax will be sent back with the EIN within four (4) business days.

Apply By Mail

The processing timeframe for an EIN application received by mail is four weeks. Ensure that the Form SS-4 (PDF) contains all of the required information. If it is determined that the entity needs a new EIN, one will be assigned using the appropriate procedures for the entity type and mailed to the taxpayer. Find out where to mail Form SS-4 on the "Where to File Your Taxes" (for Form SS-4) page.

Other Important Information

Responsible Party

In order to identify the correct individuals and entities applying for EINs, language changes have been made to the EIN process. Refer to Responsible Parties and Nominees to learn about these important changes before applying for an EIN.

Third Party Authorization

The Third Party Designee section must be completed at the bottom of the Form SS-4. The Form SS-4 must also be signed by the taxpayer for the third party designee authorization to be valid. The Form SS-4 must be mailed or faxed to the appropriate service center. A third party designee may call for an EIN; however a faxed Form SS-4, with the taxpayer's signature, is still required. IRS assistors will take the information over the phone from the third party designee and ask the third party to fax the completed Form SS-4 to them (to the IRS assistor's attention) at an administrative fax number. After receiving the faxed Form SS-4, the EIN will be assigned and faxed back to the third party designee, or given over the phone. The third party designee's authority terminates at the time the EIN is assigned and released to the designee.

A tool of Denial called "Minimizing"

1-800-257-7810 for free assessment  - 24 hours a day everyday. are the same people who have helped a lot of folks by printing addition control literature - just in case this is some reader's problem.  Today, I saw a book at the Bexley Library  in Columbus, Ohio called "Cyber Junkie - Escaping The Gaming and Internet Trap", by Kevin Roberts.  The Hazelden site above does not list that one, but it too is available, "just-in-case" someone has that problem 'by coincidence' ;)

What is Minimizing?  Does it have to do with downsizing?
Not really.  Just like the photo above, the problem is present, and then it disappears completely - vanished into the blue sky.  The point is that before 'it' can vanish, just like a plane or bird in the sky, 'it' (the problem) gets smaller and smaller.
"It's not that important", says someone.  Maybe the 'someone' is right, maybe they are not right.

What is a "Competency Framework"?

The caption under this picture when found
on the 'free internet'
 was called simply
"Dead Gangster" as named by
the photographer.  The photographer
was not named. Jerry Bauer was hit in the face with
a blunt object while living at 1785 Akron Road, Wooster, Ohio lying
in an electric medical bed.  The crook knew the man
was an invalid in a medical bed and knocked out half of Jerry's teeth. 
Jerry had to get false teeth.
The crook also stole all of the money Jerry had in his room
which was "Beacon Agency payola" or out of court settlement money
which Kimberly gave him to hold. 
 The below is an interesting article about "competency frameworks" for hiring and developing employees.  The thing about this is that I understand that an Acme Cab driver in Columbus, Ohio named "Canterbury" recently died according to my fiance John Drilling" and there is a blonde woman on the Canterbury site who looks like The Princess Diana of Wales with longer hair.  Mr Drilling wanted me to know that this other cabdriver named "Canterbury" died of a heart attack in his sleep, so I looked up the "Canterbury" site.  They are listed addresses under that article from their site about Competency Testing, and are also listed as being part of U.K. 

Developing competency frameworks: Why is it important to have a "competency framework"?

While a standard job description may provide clarity about what a job-holder is required to do, it will not necessarily identify how individuals need to work and behave. The most effective organisations set out clear expectations for the individuals and teams within the organisation – both in terms of what they are required to do (job accountabilities and team objectives) and how to do it, i.e. skills and behaviours or "competencies".

A "competency framework" is one way in which to provide that clarity. It sets out the expectations – in terms of skills and behaviours – for particular roles or groups of roles within an organisation. The framework can be used to underpin a number of organisational processes including:
recruitment and selection.
assessment as part of talent management or succession planning.
career development and progression.
performance management.

What Salomons can do for you
We start by understanding the shape and challenges of the particular role or group of roles. We then work with you to research and develop a tailored competency framework in several stages, flexed according to your requirements. The potential stages involved in developing a competency framework include:
* structured interviews with members of your senior management team to understand more about the  context and challenges facing the roles;
* focus groups with a sample of people undertaking these roles;
* structured interviews with other internal and external stakeholders;
* benchmarking against other competency frameworks for comparable roles.

The number and scope of the stages involved are dependent on your requirements for the competency framework. We will tailor our approach to meet your particular needs – including the style and format of the framework itself.

Same old thing - different day - What about Drillbilly John recipes? by Kimberly Koerber-Bauer-Koerber.

Tired of the same old thing every day for dinner?  There are ways around that.  We got to a point where anything that had to be cooked was out.  Anything too complex was out.  Today, someone had a great idea - establishing food pairs, but these were food pairs that were part of a grocery store contest for housewives. I had to adjust to food that was prepared in a gourmet way to food that was nutritious, edible, and am in the same lifestyle as many people thanks to the recession, USA crisises, and mobility.   What folks like the Rachel Ray Show do not understand is that many people just love complicated gourmet foods, Continued problems made people 'get simple' a long time ago.  What about simple meals that require no cooking with only a few ingredients? 

This week:   Pickled cauliflower - made from pickle juice left over after purchasing the pickled vegetables.
                   Ramen Pride Noodles mixed with cream of mushroom soup in a can (low calorie) and 
                   Wendy's hot sauce.
