SB1234- And the 80-20-0 Plan - Guide for selecting effective legislators.

Posted By CotoBogzz

The metamorphosis of the government of the people, by the people and for the people, is now complete:  It is now the government of the government for the government by the government.

Take for instance SB1234- this piece of legislation requires employers with five or more workers to enroll them into a personal pension program to be run by a state board.  And it does not end there.  The problem is as Cox Cable might say, a political bundle:  The symbiotic relationship between politicians, unions, lobbyists and bureaucracies we refer to as California’s Triple Threat: - while perhaps federal  and federal,  where created were well intentioned, more than 80%  should now be closed and or merged as their primary focus  is self-preservation, rather than to serve the taxpayers.  For example, AQB, LAFCO, CLRC, Dep. Of Energy, EPA, Dep, of Education and so on.

Now, consider that lobbyists outnumber lawmakers in Sacramento by a ratio of 10-1, not counting taxpayer funded unregistered lobbyists. Further, the California Fair Political Practices Commission (FPPC), reported in March 2010 that the California Teachers Association is at the top of the list of the interest groups trying to buy lawmakers in Sacramento at the tune of $211,849,298, followed by the California State Council of Service Employees—$107,467,272 – this is a ten-year period beginning on January 1, 2000 and ending on December 31, 2009

At roughly the same time as the release of the FPPC’s report, Maplight.Org released a study that showed that CTA gave an average of $17,800 to each California State Senator who voted against a January 2010 school reform bill that would have helped California qualify for federal "Race to the Top" fund.  Worse, President Obama regularly assures organized labor that its agenda is HIS agenda, and the  Most Frequent Visitor (MVF) to the White House is  SEIU’s president Andy Stern 

If this was not disheartening enough for the typical taxpayer, consider that a typical law maker is mostly motivated by immortality:  Typical lawmakers want to craft bills that will forever bear their name, such as the Dood-Frank Act described by the Economist as “Flaws in the confused, bloated law passed in the aftermath of America’s financial crisis are becoming ever more apparent”.” – Do you recall Pelosi’s infamous bill than needed to be passed, before we would know what is in it?  Now we are just finding out.

With this juggernaut, is it any wonder that most American’s by most accounts are either dependency-addicts, apathetic, or simply cognitive challenged?  Or as President Obama  in essence  referred to 69% of Americans as stupid.    

A way forward however, is the 80-20-0 Plan for effective state and or federal legislators.  Individuals seeking a state and or federal legislator’s job must first sign the 80-20-0 pledge:  In essence, for every new piece of legislation proposed and or passed, requires the elimination of four.

 So,  any lawmaker who wishes to pass a new piece of legislation, he or she  must first identify four bills and have them repealed.  Likewise with the creation of any new bureaucracy.    Failure to do so implies zero re-election chances.

Selective Aesthetic reasoning

 Posted by CotoBlogzz

Ranch Santa Margarita, CA - Glen McCoy's political cartoon provides an excellent illustration of the typical selective aesthetic reasoning used by the Mostly Radical Left & Hyphenated Media. 

Now,  we all filter what we hear and see, based on our gender, ethnicity, education, economic status and so on, for example, and we tend to have a world view consistent with  who we are, not like it is.

We see the world as we are

While reasonable individuals may disagree on how the world is, or should be, consider that  effective politicians, regardless of  party affiliation regularly use rhetorical devices, or as Juan Williams calls them "code words"- to manipulate or persuade 

The  difference in this case is that the Mostly Radical Left Wing & Hyphenated Media routinely uses weapons of mass disinformation to manipulate the dependency- addict, the apathetic and or cognitive challenge electorate to advocate tolerance- for their won wordless view.  yet remain silent and or fuels the fire otherwise.

Where was Obama when  Occupiers threw  condoms at a girls Catholic school.  Or when a  one-bit so- called artist dare mock the Pope, but the same artist does not have to  guts to mock Prophet Mohammed.  Is that art?

While Obama apologized  to Karsai, for inadvertent burning the Quran, the burning was deliberate, as it should have.  When the Holy  Quran is defaced, it is to be destroyed. The detainees writing messages to one another throughout the pages of the Qurans in the detainee library defaced THEIR  own sacred books - where is the Muslim outrage?   Sadly,  the President of the United States failed to recognize HE was being manipulated 

Perhaps the President was trying  to lead from behind, or simply seeking more air time.    While the same publicity can be used to educate the non-Muslim world, the same is then used by the mullahs as weapons of mass disinformation to manipulate it's mostly analphabetic and primitive subjects.  

While President  Raegan called evil, evil, and stood up to evil, this President's compass tends to side with evil.

The President for example, remains mum on the Christian Pastor to be killed by Iran's Muslim government  for NOT converting to Islam

As GOP Presidential candidate Newt Gingrich might say, with a President like  this, I would be very much afraid to be a friend of the US - is that statement poetic?  In other words, can we use aesthetic reasoning in this case?

Disgraceful Golden Rain Foundation



California State Legislatures
Community Associations Institute
California Association of Realtor
Jerry Storage, General Manager
Leisure World/Laguna Woods Village Boards
Homeowners Leisure World/Laguna Woods Village

      Re:  Leisure World Laguna Woods -Common Interest Development.

                The California State Legislatures pass a number of bills each year for Common Interest Developments; however there is no interest in who enforces these laws.  The Davis Stirling Act is ignored by most of the Homeowners Associations Boards, Managing Agents, Realtors and State Agencies who have sworn to up-hold these State Laws.  Passing new laws is not a solution, enforcement of the Law is.   If California Law Enforcement enforced the laws that are on the books all California homeowners would benefit not just the Common Interest Developments.
          Professional Community Management, Inc. has been the Managing Agent of this community since Leisure World/Laguna Woods Village and PCM's inception in 1964.  PCM employee Wendy Bucknum, Government and Public Relations Affairs Manager and Skip Daum, Community Association Institute's LAC work directly with the California State Assembly regarding the legislation of the bills which affect this Senior Citizens Homeowners Association and all Common Interest Developments in the State of California.  In our opinion these two people are Lobbyist.   Who are they representing Management Agents or Homeowners?

            A letter was written May 3, 2011, to the Honorable Assembly member Butler by Golden Rain Foundation President Jim Matson opposing AB 771 unless amended to be a disclosure only requirement.  The second paragraph of this letter
by the GRF Board stated: "We fully support disclosure; however, a limitation on fees only places a greater burden on the association to potentially absorb cost for those selling their homes."  How would limiting a facility fee place a greater burden on the association?   GRF already collects an administration fee of $400 on each new buyer!
           The Golden Rain Foundation board meeting of August 2, 2011, presented a plan to institute a $1500 facility fee on new buyers.  Many Homeowners and Real Estate Brokers spoke up in this meeting against the facility fee because of the housing crisis and the number of foreclosures in Leisure World.  Many Coop's and Condo's have been on the market for over a year and GRF wants to impose a $1500 facility fee, this is ridiculous.   There wasn't time in this Board Meeting to response to homeowners concerns but shortly after the meeting a flyer was handed out to homeowners where GRF gave 20 Explanations for Imposing a Facility Fee on New Buyers.   What a disgrace.

            Golden Rain Foundation President Jim Matson and the GRF board were out of line in writing the letter of May 3, 2011 to the Honorable Assembly member Butler on AB 771 - Common Interest Development.  The Housing Mutuals (Third, United and Fifty) should have been the parties who made the decisions on the $1500 Facilities Fee not GRF, CAR, CAI or PCM.

          The AB 771 bill which was sponsored by the California Association of Realtors (CAR) was passed by the California State Legislature.  And on January 1, 2012 a $1500 Facility Fee was imposed by the GRF Board under the guidance and advice of PCM which adds to the purchase price on the Sale of each Coop or Condo sold in Leisure World/Laguna Woods Village.  Thanks to the GRF Board, California Association of Realtors (CAR), Community Association Institute (CAI) and Professional Community Management, Inc. (PCM) for this added $1500 Facilities Fee on our homes.  Who does this $1500 Fee benefit???              


                                                        Sincerely yours,

Is Barrack Obama A Christian?

Posted By CotoBlogzz

Rancho Santa Margarita, CA  –   Is it appropriate to question an elected official’s faith?  Or is this engaging in phony religiosity, as President Obama stated last week?  Whether it is fair or not, the question as to whether the President is a real Christian keep coming up.  Today,  Franklin Graham joined the discussions responding to an interview:

"I cannot answer that question for anybody," Graham said when asked if he believes Obama is a Christian.  "Islam sees him as a son of Islam because his father was a Muslim, his grandfather was a Muslim, great grandfather was a Muslim and so under Islamic law, the Muslim world sees Barack Obama as a Muslim.  Under President Obama, the Muslims of the world, he seems more concerned about them than the Christians being murdered in the Muslim countries,"

This may be a good illustration of the old Christian fear in the adage:  “  I just hope that if I am accused of being a Christian,I will be found guilty”

While like Rev. Graham, we cannot answer the question for anyone, as the answer lies between the individual’s heart  and God, we can refer to the  book of James  for guidance:

“  What does it profit, my brethren, if someone says he has faith but does not have works? Can faith save him? But someone will say, “You have faith, and I have works.” Show me your faith without your works, and I will show you my faith by my[ works.
 You believe that there is one God. You do well. Even the demons believe—and tremble!
 But do you want to know, O foolish man, that faith without works is dead? Now, let's take a look at some of the works”

Likewise, ,while we cannot tell what is in a person’s heart, we can deduce a  transfer function to estimate what is hidden in the proverbial black box, or as the FBI might say, behavioral analysis. 

Proverbial black box

Behavioral Analysis

Now, consider that  the Army Censored the  Military Archbishop’s Letter Condemning Obama Contraception Mandate, that

Occupiers are allowed to throw condoms at a girls Catholic school.

That a  one-bit so- called artist dare mock the Pope, but do not have to guts to mock Prophet Mohammed - and the White House is mum.

Or that President  Obama told the people in Turkey that the US is not a Christian Nation

Never mind that in the legal case of Marsh v. Chambers, 463 U.S. 783 (1983), the Supreme Court of the United States held that a state legislature could constitutionally have a paid chaplain to conduct legislative prayers "in the Judeo-Christian tradition."

In Simpson v. Chesterfield County Board of Supervisors, the Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals held that the Supreme Court's holding in the Marsh case meant that the "Chesterfield County could constitutionally exclude Cynthia Simpson, a Wiccan priestess, from leading its legislative prayers, because her faith was not 'in the Judeo-Christian tradition.'" Chesterfield County's board included Jewish, Christian, and Muslim clergy in its invited list.

Arguably, not all Christians believe the same thing,  However, most, if not all agree that being a Christian implies the individual cares more about what happens 5,000 years from now, than 5 years from now, placing a premium on human life from conception to expiration regardless of race, religion or ethnicity.  Or as the Declaration of Independence might say, certain inalienable rights endowed by the Creator, NOT the government, consisting of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.   Unfortunately the President seems to think that liberty refers to legalized murder, as shown in his record below.  He also seems to to think Christianity is about class warfare.  Christ in fact, while he gravitated toward the sick  and the lowly, wealthy individuals such as Joseph of Aramathia were ready to minister to him:  That is, no class warfare in real Christianity.

Am I trying to say that the President is not a Christian?

Not at all.

The relationship between God and Obama is personal.  On the other hand, a reasonable transfer function  indicates that the Obama administration is clearly an anti-Christ and is actively fighting  freedom of religion.

What we can be sure of, is that if Mr. Obama was tried for claiming to be Christian, there may be reasonable doubt.

Does HUD stand for Home Useless Device?


Hi Buzz,

HUD let the HOA off the hook for sending the mass-mailing letter defaming our business practices because of "freedom of speech".   We knew that was an option.

HUD also let the City of Lincoln explain away why they were not filing the final plat of the 23rd addition, which put complainants in the situation where attorneys were threatening to sue us! by simply stating, "the City made a mistake".

Now that I fully understand the HUD investigative process, a process that they seem to want to be kept a secret, HUD only investigates what is actually written on the "Complaint".   This type of investigation is not to be confused with a typical police investigation, or in fact, any other investigation I am aware of.   My friend at ICE said this is not how ICE investigates.   Buzz, that is how the respondents covered up this case locally.   Another important fact that seems to be secret is that the only person who can re-open a HUD case once it has been closed is the person who closed it.

Really?    HUD in D.C. looked at our case, but never told us what it takes to re-open a case so I don't know that information.   They said it was VERY RARE for a case to be re-opened.   This is important information for you to know, I should write up clearly what I know.   The FFH law classes given to Realtors stop at the comment, "then file a complaint to HUD".

The reason Gary and I find this an outrage is because we went to a really good seminar about "dismantling institutional racism".   It was excellent.  It is an organization funded by the Catholic Church, at least that is what I had the impression of.   I will get you that info.   My husband said white men created these laws.   Now they can tell minorities they care, created laws are doing something . . .right.   Now look at the investigative process they put with those laws.   I guess we can now see why HUD has been a failure in the past 40 years!   HUD remands a case to a local Human Rights Commission.   Towns like Lincoln, 250,000 persons, yet a very small town in function.   In other words, if said HUD complaint somehow steps on the toes of any local person of authority or connection (in our case the largest real estate company in town, 70% of the market, and the 2nd largest law firm in town) they have that inside, secret information about the HUD investigative process!   They can simply make the complaint go away through procedure.   Our original complaint only stated "denial of housing".   That is why everything else was ignored.   That is why respondents made such an effort to overwhelm the LCHR and make sure no one helped us amend our original HUD complaint.  So much for our HUD advocate!   Once LCHR closed our case, only they can re-open.  Frankly, now that I know what I know, I could have written our HUD request for re-consideration on our case better.   But you remember the part where we were totally discredited in this town so that NO ONE would help me, or even speak to me.  I had to figure this all out on my own, while suffering from PTS.   Our case should have included "threatening, interfering and coercing a person helping another person exercise their FFH rights" and of course our case should have been stamped retaliation on Oct. 23, '08.

I am back to filing a complaint to the NE Real Estate Comm. against Rhonda Dodson.   A Realtor started this action against us!   I have talked to Terry Mayrose, our State investigator several times since '09 about this on going saga.  He has also read the LCHR determination and FIR.   Several unfair trade practices were violated:

1)   Making any substantial misrepresentations.

2)  Demonstrating negligence, incompetence, or unworthiness to act as salesperson.

3)   Discouraging another person from purchasing real property, by representing a change has occurred with respect to race, religion.. . .(while they were not expressly stating the "change" we made was due to race, etc. . .AFTER they had full requisite knowledge that we were building a home for a protected class person, and this requisite knowledge is admitted to by HOA attorney in HUD FIR,  they continued the statement that we had "changed covenants" so it will be interesting to see if the Comm. deems the fact that they KNOW, but are just not stating that to others gets them off the hook)  resulting in the lowering of property values, this claim was stated far and wide, also stated in mass mailing letter.  (even though 2 Home services listings only blocks away closed for over $14,000 less then anything we have every sold in the 23rd add.)  They admit in HUD FIR to contacting not just our clients, but also any potential clients to warn them not to buy from us as titles are not clear.  This is Blockbusting.    While I do not have to prove this is done by Realtor for financial gain, I CAN!   Two documented sales lost because HOA Board members made false statements, statements that started with Realtor, turned around and purchased from Homeservices of America.

4)   Intentionally using advertising which is misleading or inaccurate in any material particular or in any way misrepresents any property, terms, values, policies, or services of the business conducted.    (how broad is the word advertising?  Dodson emailed all the HOA Board members making false statements and also made these statements continually in her office)

5)   Inducing any party to a contract of sale or lease to break such contract for the purpose of substituting, in lieu thereof, a new contract with another principal;

6)   Filing any document or instrument purporting to create a lien based on a listing contract for the purpose of casting a cloud upon the title to real estate when no valid claim under the listing contract exists;         (in Nov. '08 I called the Comm. because I was confused about the responsibilities of the licensee due to the fact that it was OUR real estate transaction and Realtor Dodson had stuck her nose in the middle of it.   Les Terreyl, who has since passed away from cancer, was very taken aback.   He knew all about HOA Board abuse and stated, "KIM, you are a licensed Realtor 24/7!)   A Lis Pendens is an instrument.   I think they are talking about creating a lien to cover your real estate commission, but the way it is written is broad.

7)   Failure without just cause to surrender unto the rightful owner, upon demand, any document or instrument coming into his or her possession.    Not only did Realtor refuse to surrender property rights back to rightful owners (our 3 clients!)   Realtor participated in further clouding our client’s property rights by filing Lis Pendens after we were demanding return once we had court order.

8)   Conspiring with any . . .other interested party, either verbally or by submitting false documents, to misrepresent the true and actual sale price of the real estate or the terms actually agreed upon.

The question in front of the NE R.E. Comm. is simple;   Can a licensee hide behind obtuse laws (or lack of laws) and actively violate NE R.E. license law?   I understand that all other persons on the HOA Board, and the Board itself cannot be sued to negligence, but what are the responsibilities of the licensee?   According to our past Comm. Director, the licensee's responsibilities are to follow license law!   Of course we will have to see what they say now.

This is my question to you.   In reading a lot of material about the laws, etc. that govern HOA Boards, it seems that I have seen legal terminology that state the "interest" that HOA's have in the real property in their neighborhood.   Can you give me the legal words for that?   This is the other license law I am thinking Dodson violated;

9)    Failure to make known, in writing, to any purchaser or seller any interest the licensee has in the property he or she is buying or selling.   If the licensee has any interest in the property for sale, said written disclosure shall take place prior to the buyer becoming obligated to purchase the property.  In a situation where a licensee is purchasing property for themselves or for an entity in which they have any interest, said written disclosure by the licensee shall take place prior to the seller becoming obligated to sell such property.   Said written disclosure shall be signed and dated by the other party.   A copy of the signed and dated disclosure shall be maintained by the licensee for five years from the date of receipt by the other party.   In a case where the subject property is listed by a real estate broker, such disclosure may be maintained in the transaction file, in accordance with 299 NAC 3-001.

I understand that typically they are meaning ownership,  my husband and I own a bit of real estate and are very familiar with these laws.   A licensee has to disclose ownership on face of Offer to Purchase.   The last time I spoke to Terry Mayrose he was concerned about the number of phone calls the commission was getting from around the state about homeowners being jacked around by their HOA Boards.  Not only can he not help them, but he cannot even refer them to anyone who can!   It may only be a little chip in the HOA nightmare, but I know the Veterans Administration has taken action making it unlawful for any HOA in America to forclose on a soldier while they are away on active duty.   This case will be a statement about a real estate licensee's inability to hide behind HOA Boards and say any false statement, take any legally bogus action against persons conducting lawful business in their neighborhood.  How's that for getting rid of your competition?

Factor into all of this that my witness Dan Castro will testify under oath that he went to Realtor Dodson's Broker BEFORE July 10, '08 Court Order with his concerns that discrimination was happening due to VH HOA Board filing lawsuit.   Dodson's Homeservices of America Broker knew all about what this HOA Board was doing to us at the time!   THEN, I have Castro testimony (and I believe Broker Mike Elgert will tell the truth under oath) that he was told in Aug. '08 that the HOA Board had the "right to pursue the other issues in the lawsuit".    There were no other issues, they only had the right because we were helpless, but you know all that.   Dodson's Brokers position is true for all other persons on the HOA Board EXCEPT their licensee.   

Forget the federal government, perhaps our State will do something.   Terry Mayrose said for me to file this, then he will review with Gary and I.  He said he may refer this to civil court, in which case there will be a court hearing.  I have no money to hire an attorney but will cross that bridge IF I get there.

If you have any sage thoughts or comments, please let me know.   I really cannot thank you enough for you kindness.   If Homeservices is so darn innocent, then why did they make sure no one in this town would so much as speak to me, let alone help me?

Kim Goranson

PS   I wonder if HOA Board insurance carrier will cover the licensee’s legal expenses?   Realtor Dodson's husband is the attorney for State Farm here locally.   They funded $36,000 to defend original HUD complaint, while we were told not to hire an attorney.   A few months ago I did think to look at the list of donors on the web site for our HUD Advocate.  Wouldn't you know, the ONLY insurance carrier that was a donor was State Farm. . .I have always suspected they somehow got to our "HUD advocate".   I don't know for a fact that State Farm is insurance carrier for VH, but have always suspected that because they have a large corp., office close by and a lot of State Farm personnel live in VH.

Lincoln  Nebraska, - April 11. 2011
 Connie, I have just received a call from Nancy Muehling, director of Lincoln Habitat for Humanity. The good folks on the neighborhood association board in Hub Hall Heights, with whom I have had a few encounters, sent her a cease and desist request against a Habitat home in the neighborhood.

Gary and I are looking forward to being interviewed by the HUD investigator.   Since we have always told the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth, there is nothing to prepare for.

Is CAI Feeling the Heat? Will it get out of the HOA's kitchen?
I am responding to Mr. Berding’s undated blog entry, First Thing We Do, Let’s Ban All the Bloggers! , a no-name identification of the author of the blog, namely yours-truly. Why is Mr. Berding afraid of mentioning my name? After all, I’m not an attorney. He chose to copy myCommentary rather than to provide a link to my blog, with all those other commentaries.Ok, it does appear that Mr. Berding is quite perturbed about my statements and quotes from a D & O insurance article that uses the phrases “bad faith,” “criminal intent,” and “fraudulent acts.” He’s upset that I emphasized these words in my Commentary (WordPress Blog). Yet, Berding misleads the readers of his own blog by referring to my Commentary as, “suppose this is a blog.”

Woman Pleads Guilty in Scheme to Fraudulently Control Homeowners' Associations
Las Vegas, Nevada – Angela Esparza, a Las Vegas woman pleaded guilty today for her role in a scheme to fraudulently gain control of a homeowners’ associations (HOA) in the Las Vegas area so that the HOAs would direct business to a certain law firm and construction company, according to Assistant Attorney General Lanny A. Breuer of the Criminal Division, Special Agent in Charge Kevin Favreau of the FBI Las Vegas Field Office, Sheriff Doug Gillespie of the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department and Special Agent in Charge Paul Camacho of the Internal Revenue Service-Criminal Investigation (IRS-CI).

Leisure World HOAs, Arrogance, Incompetence, Stupidity or Senility? What part of You Must Fork Over the Documents is not clear?
We have referred to David Lyon as the original David battling the HOA Goliath. Further, Mr. Lyon was the inspiration for the CotoBuzz Journals’ the Davy HOA Awards: Mr. Lyon’s quest for Leisure World homeowner association transparency began in January 2004 when a group of seven owners, including Carol Franz, Edmund Loritz & Co. filed some 16 suits in Small Claims Court after they were refused access to financial records. They soon were involved in an owner’s worst nightmare, indeed a David vs. Goliath battle, until the California Supreme Court Decision’s on Golden Rain Foundation vs Franz and Golden Rain Foundation vs Lyon. Or so we thought.

Agoura Hills, CA – We wanted to find out what the implications of the recent Morrison Ranch elections were for the
