I can appreciate your sense of humor LOL! Thanks for the welcome.



A public denunciation of that type should have a public apology. Have you forgotten that the wheat and tares grow together to maturity and then the conclusion of history by the Stone cut out of the mountain without hands.

No offense taken, I always enjoy your posts (even the serious ones) and I think politics get all of us riled up. -Best regards (Flybynight).

Hello Gazoo, I just discovered this site for the first time a week ago, because I have this crazy idea about the USTCP exam in Nov 2012 if the world hasn't come to an end. So, far I've caught some of your funnies----where are you guys going at it (which thead or is this stuff somewhere in facebook---cause I'm not there yet) about the economy? And Have you noticed I've been pillaried about asking for any used USTCP study material----what I'm really looking for is old exam questions---to compare with the one's I'm writing. Stop by the USTP sites if you want to hear my insane stuff----But question? are most of the posters on this site trust fund babies who aren't out there fighting IRS on a daily basis for the clients? There seems to be an awful lot of political correct nonsense? Are they all professors, minor politicos in the tax industry game, and/or retired. Anyways, you may appreciate this--Ted my sorta partner wrote a review of the last Obama tax measure for Peter Shift and got back a check from Dennis Miller because they laughed so much at the candid clear analysis that Miller used the stuff as joke material.

One hesitates to disagree with someone actually practicing before any given Court. Tax court is designed for pro se petitioners and the rules themselves seem to give the court a good deal of latitude. Still, I would be very surprised if the IRS lawyer is not authorized to seek summary dismissal of a clearly defective petition.

Knowing the difference

I daresay you are right; many full-blown lawyers don't do enough civil litigation to know the difference between a Rule 12(b)(6) motion to dismiss, motion for judgment on the pleadings, and motion for summary judgment. Sitting where I do now, I can tell you that there is a good deal of difference between these devices. In any event, I don't throw rocks. NMexEA 20:37, 19 July 2012 (UTC)


"Any of several historical units of measure corresponding roughly to the length of the arm, especially the English measure equal to 45 inches (114 centimeters)." Inquiring minds need to know. Podolin 17:28, 15 August 2012 (UTC)

thanks for the laugh

I loved the comment about needing a scotch. (at 6:00 am)

I like your method Gazoo. Recently, I flew American Airlines and they seem to use a similar client management technique. If I remember correctly, all coach class patrons (of which I was one) were strapped together standing up, in a suffering wad of humanity. The staff encouraged us to eat those of our fellows who collapsed, due to this acting as a saving in peanuts and disposal costs.

"Techniques thread. How to rustle up clients and pluck all the feathers off them while at the same time pretending to be a good Christian. It's 2013 and I can't afford to mess around with amateur equipments and techniques these days. As I've mentioned before, I use the industrial farming method. Round up the clients like cattle, control them, and then empty their pockets. When you've bled them dry, send them off to the glue factory. (I tried to find a video of a chicken plucking machine, give me time and I'll find one). This is the same method my cable company and my cell phone company use and it works. In the following video I am having some clients shipped in to my office."

My partner is slowly recovering

But it is extremely exhausting on both of us. First, he was in Intensive Care for 4 nights instead of the normal 1 night after the surgery. Next he is a terrible patient, won't do what he is supposed to do and won't take direction from me. I rented him the movies Misery, One Flew Over the CuKoo's Nest, and What Ever Happened to Baby Jane the other day, and told him he had better get the message. He didn't get it until he said he wasn't hungry for the food I had prepared, and I replied that I would save it until the next day and serve it to him for breakfast with a parakeet on it.

I have to get up every 2 hours at night to give him pain medication. Exhausting for me. Tomorrow is dedicated to several doctor/rehab appointments. I have only been able to work 2 days since April 15th. Financially, I am afraid of going to the mailbox. Even with insurance we're expecting about $50,000 in co-pays. OUCH.

Yes, I have a friend

whose husband had heart surgery recently, and she told me the bills didn't make sense for the procedures he was given, and it turned out that there were thousands of dollars of services billed which were never given. It took 3 hours the other day just to fill out the papers for his rehab appointment tomorrow. Exhausting. He is NOT a paperwork person, so I had to do it. Thanks for your thoughts.

You're Welcome

Maybe I was a little harsh on you, Gazoo. That was just my knee-jerk reaction. I normally find your stuff pretty humorous, but I just didn't think it was appropriate. Glad to know it wasn't intentional. Rupert 02:21, 12 August 2013 (UTC)


Gaz, you are, inter alia, a manipulative weasel and I salute you for it. I had to wade through the entire wallow of ["I had to read"] all that stuff about the amicus brief before I got to the very end where you quite nicely, even almost apologetically, let me and the other readers know that the missing "s" at the end of amicus was an oversight. I adore you.

I may be able to repair it without leaving any obvious scars. But maybe I should leave it... No, that's not why I'm here.

Shortly thereafter..

..I changed my mind. The *ego* of a sneak-thief is a dastardly thing.

Hey Gazoo, thanks for the link.

Gazoo, just saw your post on Chat.

Once again, thanks!

Big Pharma

They will charge a fortune for this. My daughter is on Ability and it's been around for awhile. A one month supply for a small dosage (30mg a day) is $1200 a month! The pharmacist doesn't think a generic is in sight.

CathysTaxes 17:39, 28 August 2013 (UTC)

Crazy World

You got that. The pharma commercials are beyond stupid. Thanks for the kind words.

Do you remember Tiffaney?

She was an equally clueless OP, and IIRC fought back against those trying to make her see what she was really getting into.

I am equal parts annoyed and fascinated by the two parallel (but purportedly unrelated - if you believe the OP and his protests, and avoid trying to connect the ever-changing facts) questions. However, if he keeps trying to tell people they can't participate on "his" discussions, I can do him a favor and lock them so he won't be bothered by replies he doesn't llike.

Editing to add: Here it is: Discussion Archives:A dishonest client, what would you do?. Unfortunately, you have to use the history tab liberally, since she took all of her own responses out.

Trillium 15:01, 28 September 2013 (UTC)

Yeah - as you figured out, I wasn't the one who blanked all posts

But they've been reverted, now, to show both before-deletion and after-blank-slate posts (wow - a great attempt... did he think we'd all forget all that had gone before and he could just try again? And with the two simultaneous posts, again, too - that never works on this site!!).

I was out doing real-life stuff (the kind of stuff Kirkland accused us of not doing since we spend all day on TA, ya know), and at the time I left both discussions were dying down. I shoulda known better than to think it was safe to leave for a couple of hours.

Trillium 01:58, 29 September 2013 (UTC)

PS - I was going to flag the questions as soon as I saw that he'd posted contradictory OPs, one on Chat and one on Tax Forum. But then I had to do some real-life stuff, and by the time I got back everybody was having so much fun trying to send the guy over the edge, so it seemed a shame to interfere. But I am sorry it took so long to correct his removal of all posts. Trillium

Feel Free

Feel free to intrude...And I'm not sure what you mean by "hypothetical." In any event, this "Impersonation" post, I predict, will be a dandy....

The repeated use of the term "Christains" to refer... refer to members of your tribe has set off a "Repeat Misspell Audit Alert Sensor Alarm." I will consider anything you have to say on your own behalf before I unleash the robot corrector into your recent postings. As always, I adore your work and especially the way you explain it.
