We love auctions and have written previously about storage unit auctions as a means of making extra money.  We frequently get questions regarding government auctions.  Our government seizes billions of dollars of cash and goods every year.  While living in Arizona, I used to auction off such items for the Phoenix police, the IRS and the Sheriff’s department, local school systems and more.

These auctions represent huge windfalls for the government.  However, their gain can also be your gain.

Most state governments hold annual auctions for unclaimed assets.  Items can include valuables from safety deposit boxes which are unclaimed (usually due to death), items seized by state police and more.  Get more information by going to your state treasurer’s web site.

Find a luggage auction. The largest luggage auction in the United States is at the Unclaimed Baggage Center in Alabama. While no directory of luggage auctions exists, an Internet search can reveal other luggage auctions closer to your home.

Using those blow dryers to dry hands in public restrooms is not good.  According to researchers, you should use paper towels to stop the spread of germs.

Some Strange Ways to Beat the System…without getting caught!

20 Ways to Live on Almost Nothing

The adage that it takes money to make money doesn’t mean much to people who have none to spare, but it also takes (some) money to live on little-to-no money if you want to do it well. Mostly it requires nothing more than a different way of approaching life, and a willingness to choose the less-traveled road

Beating the IRS. About 49B% of people in the United States do not pay income tax. These include millions of illegal aliens as well, citizens who claim incomes that are below the poverty line, and the very rich, who exploit loopholes in the system. Sill others pay only minimal income tax. They run cash businesses such as Laundromats, grocery stores, and massage parlors and may earn $200,000 a year, but they only claim $10,000 (the amount paid with credit cards or checks).

Beating Homeland Security. Millions of immigrants either come to the USA illegally or they come with a visitor's visa and they stay in the country after the visa expires. While their visa is still valid they get a social security number. Alternately they can enter illegally and buy a perfectly legitimate SS number from a person working in the SS office-the last I heard it cost about $250.00. The next step is to buy a really good fake green card / work permit / birth certificate. If you have enough money you can even buy a real US passport with your own name. Homeland Security is lax in finding illegals.

Beating The Drug Test System
(Useful information for recruiters, parole officers, etc.)

Due to fear of losing a job, of being disqualified for employment, of losing privileges or freedoms, of losing child custody, or fear of other implication due to a positive drug test result, many people who use drugs find ways to "beat" the drug test system. This is especially advantageous to those who use/abuse drugs currently or regularly, who must test negative for drugs quickly. The following information explains how the drug test system can currently be defeated.

Survival Gunsmithing anyone can do…

To the casual firearms owner, some simple gunsmithing may appear a little more intimidating or difficult than it really is. In reality, if you have a little skill with your hands and a few dollars to spend, there are several projects that you can do to fix up that old beater or to personalize that favorite shooter. Of course, a small set of tools will be necessary, and the...

The Nanny State Updates…

Mind reading of air travelers? That's right – we're in for another goofy technology created with lavish Department of Homeland Security grants to its favored high-tech companies...

brain-mapping technology is a real and growing field…The feds are already rapidly expanding the use of new surveillance methods. says, "The system sought... would fuse together everything from Web searches to Wikipedia edits to traffic webcams to 'beat the news' by predicting major events ranging from economic turmoil to disease outbreaks."

At 161 airports nationwide, the Transportation Security Agency (TSA) has already rolled out its "behavior detection" screeners to monitor the traveling public. Essentially, these agents act as 'greeters' while actually eavesdropping on you and studying your facial expressions and intonations.

Here's how the behavior monitoring program works: a screener chit-chats with you, signaling friendly intentions. If you exhibit "suspicious" physiological or psychological signs, you get singled out for more intensive harassment regardless of being a U.S. citizen who possesses required travel documents. You and your belongings would face extra scanning and invasive, hands-on screening.

So far, this one specific TSA program has already cost over half a billion dollars. And it's estimated to cost an additional $1.2 billion over the next five years!  Friends of Congress are getting mighty rich over spying on citizens.

Online shopping soars during bad weather according to report.  Since folks are stuck indoors, time your eBay listings during those days.

The Parting Thought – Gap widens between haves & have-nots

99 to 1: How Wealth Inequality Is Wrecking the World and What We Can Do about It?, a new book by Chuck Collins.

The Poor Man has written often about this disturbing trend and it’s why I renamed our middle class as the Whittled Class.

From the occupations springing up in cities across the country to the media frenzy surrounding Mitt Romney’s gaffs about poverty, inequality has taken over our national conversation.

That’s why we are so excited about the upcoming publication of this new book, based on years of research and advocacy, but created in the wake of the 99 Percent Movement that the Occupy protests have kicked into high gear.

The timing is perfect for explaining inequality to the wider audience now hungry for a deeper understanding. It’s also perfect timing to help set an agenda for engaging our communities and preparing us all to take action.
