Concerned About the Welfare of Our People and Our Country

Protect Our Country7th MRA

Are you concerned about the welfare of our people and our country?

Anyone that knows me is very much aware that I love this country very much…as well as the wonderful people that populate the United States of America.

In a time when the “Military Draft” was in effect I volunteered to serve in the U.S. Army and served my two year commitment as a patriot.  My sacrifice was very minimum compared to that of many soldiers that I see returning from service…having lost several limbs and in some cases their ability to function as normal human beings for the rest of their lives.

And as I think about this tragedy then I hear about some 500,000 to 900,000 returning wounded soldiers who have had pending medical claims  for months and years which are overdue in processing by the Veterans Administration.  This gets very little media publicity and government attention towards resolution. This week the Army announced that the Walter Reed Army Hospital Warrior Cafeteria would be closed on certain hours and days which would require amputees to negotiate wheelchairs approximately 1/2 mile to receive any kind of food day or night, much less the same food as they enjoy today. Fortunately, due to public outcry the Army reversed this decision on the same day. Then we have the terrorist shooting massacre under trial classified as a workplace event. Due to this government decision, the victims are not entitled to receive hospitalization, care and other benefits they would receive if the event were classified as it really is…an event of war.  When we add the tragedy of Benghazi to this list, it seems that we have a total transformation of our military happening before our eyes. The leadership of our county have the opportunity to correct all of these mistakes.

It is for reasons of loving this country and being very concerned about the real status of at least 50-60 million people who are suffering financially, job-wise, emotionally and in many other ways now…that I feel that I must speak out and express my concerns and recommendations for improvement very clearly. I am a “conservative” politically…I believe in living according to the Constitution, with minimum government and minimum federal spending, effective and legitimate social programs, a balanced budget, and protection of our country from foreign invasion….as well as from internal invasion. Many of our countries societal principles have been destroyed for a variety of reasons and our country’s future is being gradually destroyed by many special interest groups.

Since I choose not to discuss these political views on this news publication, I elected this week to introduce my second publication called “The Conservative” which you can find at www.lawattorneylegal.com. I invite you to visit me there and participate with me if that is your choice. If not, then I respect your rights to your opinion not to do so. My position is that every day I watch on TV and listen on the radio to many points of view.  By so doing I feel that I have an understanding of many sides of an issue and why people think the way that they do. I invite you to read my point of view and enter into constructive conversation if you choose.

With this information I again invite you to join me on “The Conservative” at www.lawattorneylegal.com. I enjoy this “Dan Norris Blog” very much and will continue to post frequently. Again I encourage you to leave me messages on the “Leave A Reply” section below. If you enjoy any of this material please let me hear from you.

Are You Ready For An IRS Audit? Protect Yourself!

IRS Audit
IRS Tax Audit

We have admissions during Senate Investigations this summer that specific political organizations and individuals have been targeted by the IRS for delaying or stopping the approval of organizing 501 C4 organizations. Key members of the IRS have pleaded the 5th Amendment in order to avoid revealing the truth. At present, Congressional Hearings have learned that the top legal IRS official is part of these efforts. Investigations are on-going with much pushback from the Administration. Given these facts, and as a citizen without or with a business, do you feel more or less at risk for an audit by the IRS? If you are identified for an audit, will you represent yourself or will you have professional legal and cpa’s represent you or will you do it yourself? This information is provided to allow you to prepare for what we hope never happens to you…

Are You Ready For An IRS Audit? Protect Yourself!
Probably the most dreaded event in the financial life of a U.S. taxpayer is when the IRS notifies you that you are to be audited!
And the reasons for this event being so dreaded is the fact that you will have a very strong chance of  being in worse shape than you were before the audit in many ways…emotionally, financially, time-wise and maybe you wind up with a pay-off period lasting several years.There is very limited opportunity that you will be more pleased than you were before the audit.

It will definitely cost you time for preparation for the audit just to complete the process. You will in all likelihood experience anxiety and be very concerned about where the results of the audit will lead. You may elect to have a tax attorney or your tax preparer represent you in the process and you will need to fork over money to get this done. These professionals cost in the range of $300 per hour and running up a $15,000 bill with 50 hours of counsel is not unusual.

Then you will need to set aside the necessary time to accomplish the audit…and we both know that you could be doing other things more constructive…like growing your business instead of spending money talking about why things cost you so much. Don’t get me wrong…in some cases an IRS audit may be justified. It is just the fact that the scales are tilted totally in favor of the government and this is very intimidating.

The IRS is armed with many thousands of pages of federal tax law,  has unlimited resources to interpret the outcome of such an audit, and in many cases of governmental authority,  raise questions as to the fairness and objectivity of their actions. We currently face major concerns in this country over how the new healthcare  law will be enforced. At present, several thousand additional IRS agents are to be hired to accomplish this task. And of course this raises the issues of the Constitutional Rights to the privacy of citizens personal data. These are all very important subjects to consider.

Tax Audit Horror Stories: When the IRS Attacks

Joan Smith, 52, a Philadelphia-based artist, was preparing to go in for spinal surgery in 2010 when the IRS put a $10,000 tax lien on her bank account — which was more money than she had in the bank. It turns out she’d never received an audit memo that had been sent to her old address. She spent the next 11 months digging out from the paperwork avalanche that comes with a full audit.

Study in 2006 Shows 21% Rely Upon Lottery Tickets As Retirement Plan

 

Better Than Lottery Tickets
Retirement Plan

On 8/9/2013 I published a post with the title…

Does Your Financial Plan Rely Upon Buying Lottery Tickets?

I was very pleased and pleasantly surprised to receive a response from Jerry Kalish, President of National Benefit Services, Inc., a Chicago-based retirement plan consulting, actuarial, and administration firm that helps employers get their retirement plans from where they are now to where they need to be. The firm’s clients include U.S. employers and multi-national employers with U.S. operations.

Published in LinkedIn and on The Retirement Plan Blog by The National Benefits Services…as follows…

Gambling on retirement, part deux

By Jerry Kalish

Actually, a surprising large number of people believe that the most effective wealth building strategy is winning the lottery which I reported on in my 2006 blog post, http://tinyurl.com/GamlingOnRetirement .

A 2006 survey of about 1,000 Americans by Opinion Research Corporation conducted for the Consumer Federation of America and the Financial Planning Association found that one in five Americans (21%) survey thought playing the lottery was their most practical strategy for accumulating several hundred thousand dollars.

Read  more: 

_________________________________________________________________

As I read the results of this study it causes me to think and ask…are people relying upon buying lottery tickets  for their financial plan because…

  •      They actually think this is a good option?
  •      They have never been informed about developing a plan for retirement?
  •      If they could see the value of having a retirement plan would they do it?
  •      Have they just given up on developing a retirement plan for many reasons?

In any case 21% or more than 42 million people are gambling by throwing good money at bad opportunity. If the odds are 15 million to 1 to be able to win the lottery…you would need to play the lottery a lot in order to have decent odds…this is just gambling…not a plan at all…  and it is true that if you use money to buy lottery tickets that money can’t go to your retirement savings plan.

Does this information raise any questions with any readers of this post? If so…I ask that you “Leave A Reply” below or give me a comment dannorris42@gmail.com.

So How Much Cash Reserve Do You Need For An Emergency or Opportunity?

Liquid Reserves
Cash Reserves
How Much Needed?

As the first post in a series of several financial recommendations…

So How Much Cash Reserve Do You Need For An Emergency or Opportunity?

In personal finance, cash reserves are primarily short-term, highly liquid investments that earn a low rate of return that individuals want to have quick access to…for purposes of  meeting short-term, emergency or opportunity funding needs. We will discuss how much is recommended, how to create your cash reserve, where it should be kept and why it is so very important to your financial well-being!

Ameriprise Financial

Refine your cash strategy

In times of crisis, you don’t want to be shaking pennies out of a piggy bank. Having a financial safety net in place can ensure that you’re protected when a financial emergency arises. One way to accomplish this is by setting up a cash reserve, a pool of readily available funds that can help you meet emergency or highly urgent short-term needs.

Importance of Cash Reserves

James Kenney  on YouTube

_______________________________________________________________

In my humble opinion, Cash Reserves are the cornerstone of the process of effective comprehensive financial planning. In order to know how much money you should allocate on a consistent savings plan for your cash reserve, it is necessary that you develop a budget which includes all of your income,  expenses, payments, insurances, mortgage, fees…really everything that  represents money incoming and outgoing…and then you will know what you will need per month so as to then calculate how you can save for your cash reserve. If your net outgo is $4000 per month then in order to save a cash reserve equivalent to six  months of your living costs, then you will need a cash reserve of $24,000 to equal a six month cash reserve. Now that you know  how much you need you can make determinations as to where that money will need to come  from. A qualified financial advisor can be very helpful in achieving this.

Now I would like to again come back to my goal of establishing some good two-way communications between you and me.  Recently I asked that you give me  some feedback in the “Leave A Reply” section at the bottom of the page. I continue that request however let me give you a survey to choose from about those things that you may or may not like so that I  can get an  idea of what you enjoy most. If you would please select from the list below one or more of the topics that you like to read about and type each into the  “Leave A Reply” box that would be very good…thank you in advance! Here are the topics….

  • Attraction Marketing/Content Marketing
  • Blogging
  • Legal Services
  • Legal Books
  • Identity Theft Protection
  • Small Business
  • Financial Independence
  • Business Opportunity
  • Music

Does Your Financial Plan Rely On Buying Lottery Tickets?

Social Hour In London
London’s Pubs

Today’s post is on one of my favorite topics…

Does Your Financial Plan Rely On Buying Lottery Tickets?

Most everyone that I know nowadays is saying…I wish I had more money to manage…however where there is a will there is a way…and many are saying… I am making great progress every day towards my goal of financial independence…that time when I am in total control of my time and my lifestyle…and I have no financial concerns ever for the future other than properly managing my wealth.

Yesterday we saw the Minnesota gentleman Paul White who won the $86 Million (before taxes) as his third of the Powerball Jackpot…he kidded about a family gathering recently where he was identified as the one most likely to rely upon winning the lottery as being “his financial plan”. This gentleman and his family and friends (see video below) are one lucky group as the odds for winning a 6-ball Powerball Lottery are in the range of 1 in 15 million. If you like these odds to plan your future then go for it…and I wish you luck. I prefer to rely upon the philosophy of hard work, committed to goals, never give up approach to achieving lifelong dreams approach…how about you?

And that opens dialogue on my next post for a series of pragmatic, practical recommendation steps that can be very valuable in helping you to reach your goals. I am going to give these suggestions as steps on  “The Road To Financial Independence” that I have found to be really important. I am speaking as a layman, with a lot of personal and professional experience, to share with you financial experiences so that you can proceed to the next level of learning and professional assistance whenever your situation justifies that you do so.

At the outset I want to make it clear that I truly support and recommend professional “comprehensive financial planning” for anyone that wants to improve themselves financially. By professional “comprehensive financial planning” I mean with those financial advisors who are truly qualified and act in the best interests of their clients. At the same time I am very reluctant to recommend everyone who calls themselves a “financial advisor” or “investment advisor”. These terms are so misused and vague that to me it does not have real meaning. My recommendations do not include those who just want to work with your investment assets like stocks, bonds, or commodity investments like gold and silver. Financial decisions affect all aspects of our lives and for a professional to give advice on financial matters to an individual I firmly believe that any recommendations should be based on information that includes a full understanding of the individual’s goals and risks owning the assets. Investment advisors certainly have a place in the financial advisory community however I do not include these individuals as clients in my target readers.

If you are committed to achieving financial independence for you and those that you love, if you haven’t already done so, I encourage you to research the subject of “comprehensive financial planning” and to meet with three or more advisors to make a selection of whom you would most prefer to partner with to receive professional financial advice and guidance. Let them recommend your best actions and approaches on all of your key financial issues. I believe very strongly in the value of benefitting from professional services and “comprehensive financial planning” by an experienced qualified financial advisor. They can help you grow, manage and protect your assets much better with their professional knowledge.

So with this introduction to the first in a series of several financial recommendations…I know that not everyone will go out tomorrow and select a financial advisor for comprehensive financial planning however I want you to get started on the process… beginning with some of the most important initial steps. The first step I will feature in my next post is one of the key subjects of a comprehensive financial plan…that of a “Cash Reserve”.

In personal finance, cash reserves are primarily short-term, highly liquid investments that earn a low rate of return that individuals want to have quick access to…for purposes of  meeting short-term, emergency or opportunity funding needs. We will discuss how much is recommended, how to create your cash reserve, where it should be kept and why it is so very important to your financial well-being!

The topic of this post is…

Farewell to “JOBS”…Are You Ready To Market Yourself?

Do you believe that our entire economic job market is changing?

On 8/4 I posted “Blogging For My Readers” which is a sincere request for feedback from any of the 500 or so readers that visit this blog every day, thank you again, and look at an average 9 pages each, and stay an average of more than 20 minutes each…these are averages of course and not by everyone. As I state in the post above, I need to understand who my readers are, what you like to read, what you don’t like to read, what you want to read more about, and hopefully to begin some kind of dialogue with you that can benefit us all. A ship without a rudder will not get me where I want this Blog to go.

For this reason, I sincerely ask you to stop and say something in the “Leave A Reply” box at the bottom of the page. Even if you say any of the following…”I like the blog, I don’t like the blog, I just come here to kill time, I am too shy to say anything, my opinion does not count, why don’t you write about xxx, you have too many advertisements, it takes too long to read your posts, you have too many posts, you don’t have enough posts, this information is not important to me”… any constructive comment that you leave for me will be appreciated. I truly believe that very nice, interested people come here and read this blog and posts…and I am asking you to make the effort a 2-way street…if you like what you read great…and if not let me know please. I am not sure how else to ask you to give me your feedback…other than to say…call me on 407-951-7132 or email me on dannorris42@gmail.com.

As traditional jobs fade, be ready to market yourself

By Dave Maney, an entrepreneur and former journalist

Given all the attention it’s getting in Washington, D.C., millions of Americans are no doubt wondering when our economy’s job-creation machine will crank up again. Brace yourself: It isn’t likely to happen — not in the way it worked before. In fact, the economic laws that undergird the system of jobs and employment as we have known them are wobbling from the torrents of information flowing through businesses from the Internet and related information processing technologies. We’re experiencing a Great Scouring Out, as we move through a painful streamlining and restructuring of our entire economy. Sounds awful, doesn’t it? But it’s not, at least in the long term. The demand for work isn’t going away, even though millions of jobs have. The economy, more efficient than ever, will catch the wind again, providing well- equipped Americans with bountiful opportunities to make a good living.

Why Legal Plans For Commercial Truck Drivers?

Why Legal Plans For Commercial Truck Drivers?

Commercial Truck Drivers Provide To Us the Goods and Services Which Are The Lifeblood of Our Country!

 

Safety

U.S. Department Of Transportation. Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration.
U.S. Department Of Transportation. Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration.

Why Legal Plans For Commercial Truck Drivers? Due to the fact that commercial truck drivers are on the highway throughout their working day, they are subject to many times more laws and risks than the average citizen.

These risks can be described at a minimum as traffic accident risks, personal injury risks, property damage risks, tragic accident risks, legal liability risks, risks of life, loss of employment risks, loss of assets in the form of home and investment risks, family risks, and your freedom from incarceration plus others. These risks are substantial and represent essentially your total welfare as a commercial truck driver.

How do drivers reduce and minimize these risks? Many answers are important… good health habits, good driving habits, adequate rest, following sound safety and driving rules, plus a very important asset that not enough drivers and companies pay attention to…and that is the 24/7 available services of an affordable, experienced, competent transportation attorney available to you everywhere that you drive.

How easy is it for a driver to show up in court some 2000 miles away from home? Not very! But a local experienced attorney that knows the local judges and law officers can be extremely valuable. In some cases the driver’s company may provide an attorney to represent their drivers, however in many cases the driver is responsible for his own actions, whether trivial or traumatic. The services of an attorney throughout the country,  experienced in the commercial trucking industry, is an extremely important asset to a truck driver and to their companies.

These plans are available for the individual, family, and discounted for groups of five or more members within a company. This article is to emphasize the importance to drivers and to commercial driving companies of having affordable legal services in the form of proven legal plans for each driver. By offering drivers the opportunity to obtain good legal plans that protect them on the road,  it makes the driving profession more attractive and less risky. Driver shortage is caused in some part by the amount of risks that a driver assumes by following a driving profession. Reducing risk can have a positive impact on driver satisfaction.  Companies concerned about driver safety and welfare are equally concerned about protecting drivers from getting caught up in a legal maze and a web of government regulations.

Tips For Your Plan B

Tips For Your Plan B

What is your Plan B?

So life is cool right…you are on top of the world….you have this great income producing job…and you are not even thinking about this subject “What is your Plan B” or whatever….or maybe you have a job that is providing you with 32 hours per week, and this is not enough to pay all the bills, and certainly not enough to save any money for vacation, retirement, education and other preferred lifestyles? What is your Plan B?

And if you don’t have a Plan B then you are a really good prospect to go over the financial cliff!

So let’s talk about solutions for those who want more ok…just bottom line stuff..solutions that you can pursue part-time or full time…whatever your situation and circumstances require.

To the short and sweet…what happens if your employer goes bottom up tomorrow? Do you care? Does this affect your life or just your weekly pay check? Have you made any alternate plans in case your primary employer is forced out of business, is sold to another company, or your job is no longer needed. What is your Plan B?

It is really cool to have a Plan B! What that means is in case your primary income ceases it is very important and rewarding to have another income stream to kick in and take up the slack. Let me acquaint you with meaningful, easy to implement options for Plan B. This blog contains many posts that describe several options for developing your personal business opportunities.

In addition, I am aware of several additional business opportunities that could be promising for certain people depending upon their personal qualifications, preferences and goals.

Woman Chases Down Identity Thief - Good Morning America

 

Karen Lodrick

 

Woman Chases Down Identity Thief - Good Morning America

When you invest a few minutes on the subject of an identity thief….which should be at the top of your priority list for you and those that you love…we can find some very interesting information. I found this incredible story recently about a young woman in San Francisco that recognized from bank videos the person in Starbucks that stole her identity…and then chased down her identity thief through the streets of San Francisco…no easy task…and called 911…asked a cab driver to stop because the woman was a thief…and the police came and arrested her…the victim showed incredible courage and determination to have this person arrested.  This brave and determined young woman victim is named Karen Lodrick…and you can begin to learn about her here…she is a heroic young woman!

                                     http://fightingbacknow.com/

Fortunately, the San Francisco media heard the story and it was reported on Good Morning America in the following film clip…

Karen Lodrick on Good Morning America

 

As you heard in the video, the thief received 43 days  in jail and 3 months probation…a trifling sentence for all the trauma that she put Karen through.  This is incredibly unfair to the victim…and it sends no message to the thief that if you do this you will be punished. Until we recognize the seriousness of and punish criminals for these kinds of crimes on our fellow-man, then we will only see an increase in the activity.

Karen Lodrick has proceeded to become an advocate, teacher, and speaker about Identity Theft. Her life will never be the same since that event. And she is one of the few that at least caught the perpetrator. And because of our laws…there was minimum justice.

Once someone’s identity has been stolen, the preferable solution is restoration to the original status before the theft. This includes credit positions, positions with banks, drivers licenses, social security numbers, medicare records, medical records, and many agencies that have your data. Very few people are aware that preventing identity theft is virtually impossible.  Even more do not realize what courses of action must be taken once their identity has been stolen. Very few people realize that in order to restore your identity that it will take many hours and typically years of effort to contact all of the parties that have your identity data that may have been negatively impacted. Do you know in how many digital data bases your personal identity resides? And in what locations, companies, government agencies, hospitals, employers, stores, suppliers could your data be located?

I sincerely recommend that you protect yourself for identity theft, including your children.
