ON BACKGROUND CHECKS, AND DUE DILIGENCE,…

12/20/14 – TOP CONSUMER REVIEWS.COM
http://www.topconsumerreviews.com/background-checks/

COMMENTS: In today’s world there is NO excuse in an individual not being able to check up on someone. It is not just females that need to be wary, it is males verifying information on females, whether employees, personal, or other. It is not hard to “trip” someone up in a conversation of 15 minutes or more if: 1. you let THEM talk, 2. you know the answers to the questions before you ask them, 3. you can maintain a poker face, 4. you can keep your mouth closed no matter what and “walk away” without comment in the end. I will not get into the “weeds” here on this, but there is plenty of information on the web to help you in LIESPOTTING, FACIAL EXPRESSIONS, BODY LANGUAGE, CROSS-REFERENCING, etc. watch and read a minimum of (6) hours of information just to get a start. This will give you a heads up and head start over 97 percent of your “competition”. The main thing you must do is be honest with yourself. A liar gets away with what they do, BECAUSE THEY ARE GOOD AT IT, but they give away TELLS if you pay attention. Don’t be so much in a hurry to accept someone until they can pass muster. Finally, just because you catch them in a lie does not mean you say anything, as I explain to clients, this is a “card” you hold on them to be played in the future if necessary. In dating just walk away, you don’t have to explain anything. In business, it starts to “paint” the person into a corner. The adage, “no one is perfect” is true. The difference is that you know where they are weak and you can manipulate this weakness to your advantage if necessary. This is a topic that one must definitely, “stay ahead of the ball”, peoples trust should be earned. They should not be trusted just because they showed up. Be smart, and let “the other guy/girl” tell the horror story of trust gone wrong, and betrayal. You will again sit and listen, and “hold” the cards.

12/20/14 – PERSONAL INFORMATION ON 50,000 FEDERAL EMPLOYEES EXPOSED; HACKERS BREACH CONTRACTOR SYSTEM
http://www.al.com/news/index.ssf/2014/12/personal_information_on_50000.html

COMMENTS: Where do the weaknesses in the system begin? They begin when one background company loses the government contract and has to get “qualified” people to fill their ranks for the additional work now gained. It is exciting, yes, a redundant flaw is exposed over and over. There are only so many computer geeks, investigators, administration people trained in this field. The contract is detailed and stringent in who can be hired, or contracted with to do the work. The PROBLEM is that the company gaining the contract and feeling all big and so forth just turns around and hires the detritus from the company that lost the contract. The same people who were part and parcel of the original company losing the contract now are right back at it under the new flag. Up here in Northern Virginia (NOVA) it is a sick, pathetic recurring theme. It is easily predictable the patterns of negligence, idiocy, complacency to come because the employees will fall back into their old practices once again. The management now is under a stricter control system financially, meaning more work out of less people. I can tell you where this ends up,…garbage. It is simple psychology. A person cannot work at 110 percent or more every day for years and years. They will get bored, they will get pissed off, they will destroy morale for others, it is a certainty. Eighteen months from the start time, the same “tells” that the other company suffered from will begin showing their nasty heads, 24 months after start time, managers will be in full blown “look away” mode and the virus of incompetence and complacency with take over the “body” once again.

ON STUPID PEOPLE DOING STUPID THINGS AND EXPECTING A SMART,  AND JUSTIFIED OUTCOME,…

12/20/14 – PHOTO POSTED TO PARAMEDIC’S INSTAGRAM ACCOUNT PROMPTS OUTRAGE
http://philadelphia.cbslocal.com/2014/12/18/photo-posted-to-paramedics-instagram-account-prompts-outrage/

COMMENTS: There are a number of songs out there in the world written and sung over time referring to this topic. One is “I fought the law and the law won”. The reason they will win every time is because as a majority in the 99 percentile, they are in the right and are doing the right, legal and moral thing. Why people that fight them lose is because they are in the 99 percentile of stupidity, incompetence, idiocy, criminal behavior, and outright DUH thing. The point is, the POLICE have the backing of the populace as a whole, as a majority. To give an example, Michael Brown, as a faceless person doing what he did to the police officer was committing multiple criminal acts. He was attacking the officer and Michael Brown lost as idiots all do in the long run. The guy, Garner people are being stupid over, was breaking the law and FOUGHT the Police Officers. Sun Tzu wrote a well known book on War which I believe many of the IDIOTS should read. One of the premises was/is basically knowing when you are in an inferior position tactically, accepting it, retreating, and saving yourself to come back another day to fight. Or you can be stupid and sacrifice yourself for nothing. For people to think that they will convince the majority of RIGHT that their position is righter because: 1. you are backing 2 criminals, 2. you loot and pillage, 3. you commit crimes yourself against people that have nothing to do with any of it, 4. you get clowns like Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton, socialists, and other moral deviants to speak for you, IS IN AND OF ITSELF CRAZY! I could keep on with this forever with examples of idiots, but I would bore you and I believe in the 90 second rule of writing. The point is, these people protesting, running their mouths, committing more crime, only show to a greater extent that the police are right in what they are doing. Showing pictures of maggots pointing guns at, not an individual, but the very fabric of American society, LAW AND ORDER, is going to make you an even bigger loser. Be prepared for the whirlwind!

ON THE CONTINUING SAGA OF INCOMPETENCE AT THE WORLD’S “GREATEST LAW ENFORCEMENT AGENCY”,…

12/20/14 – FBI EVIDENCE IS OFTEN MISHANDLED, AN INTERNAL INQUIRY FINDS
http://www.nytimes.com/2014/12/20/us/politics/fbi-evidence-keeping-criticized.html?_r=0

COMMENTS: The problems will always be when, in a nutshell, one must live in a four dimensional world, deal with objects in a three dimensional world, and programmed and eventually placed into a two dimensional world. The negative complexity of this is exacerbated by pure exponential numbers controlled by HUMANS. The weaknesses of machines, software, humans, training, time, complacency, politics, etc. make this situation a “ball” that no organization will ever get in front of. The “intelligencia” should put this in their computers and live in the real world rather than believe, in a demented way, that it will all be solved magically by some computer geek “wizard” in some arbitrary time period picked in the future. Picture, metaphorically, playing 52 card Texas Hold’em with 30 cards. The point being, who would have the advantage here and why? The bad guy, the good guy, or the House? We can discuss this later.  It is ongoing.
