kickstarting the crowdfunding Problem


so… how is Kickstarter, or “crowdfunding” not illegal?

consider this point-of-reference article, The Kings of Crowdfunding.

what type of regulatory filings or qualifying standards are involved?

NOTE: another aspect of crowd funding is tied into the JOBS Act  which allows for a wider pool of smaller investors with fewer restrictions. the Act was signed into law by President Obama (naturally) on April 5, 2012.

the SEC is going to have approximately two hundred and seventy (270) days from the enactment date to set forth specific rules and methods to ensure that funding will actually take place. so, technically it’s probably not illegal due to that evaluation period. but, investors are going to get hurt. and, eventually, the programs will need to be radically altered. as the saying goes… if it’s too good to be true… and, it’s right up the, collective, alley of self-entitled entrepreneurs that think it’s okay to cut regulatory corners along with the offering of white lies to get what  they believe is due them.

it’s crazy to me. this flies in the face of every effort by the SEC and state regulators to protect against the pillaging small investors?

more later.

peace be to my Brothers and Sisters.

What’s All This About?

"What am I looking at?", you might wonder.

Lots of stuff.

Meanwhile, here, I discuss events, people and things in our world - and, my (hardly simplistic, albeit inarticulate) views around them.

You'll also learn things about, well, things, like people you need to know about, and information about companies you can't find anywhere else.

So, while I harangue the public in my not so gentle way, you will discover that I am fascinated by all things arcane, curious about those whom appear religious, love music, dabble in politics, loathe the media, value education, still think I am an athlete, and might offer a recipe.

All the while, striving mightily, and daily, to remain a prudent and optimistic gentleman - and, authentic.
