Contracts! What Constitutes as a Legal Agreement and How To Protect Oneself…

By Madame Margherite

A contract is a written or spoken agreement, especially one concerning employment, sales, or tenancy, that is intended to be enforceable by law.

What that means is, if you have a written or spoken agreement with a person, persons, or entity,  then the court and judicial system is obligated to protect you from the agreement being broken.

1-That doesn’t mean that all agreements are forced, an alternative is a settlement or revised renewal of the contract.
2- The purpose of a documented agreement, such as a written agreement, is to prove your entitlements in regards to the agreement itself. It is used to reflect on in future dealings sometimes, and called into question sometimes, but if there’s proof of it, disputes are easier to resolve.
3- For your Contract to be a Valid Contract, and ultimately recognized by a court it must contain certain elements.

  1. The Date. This absolutely must be the date that all parties are engaging in, or in other words signing, the Contract. If it’s even 1 day earlier or later than the date it’s signed it can be ruled Void, which means the court decides it doesn’t recognize it at all.

  2. The names of the entities entering the Contract, and preferably all entities addresses as well.

  3. The terms of the agreement between all entities. Financial agreement terms would go here. They would specify a product, service, or tenancy in exchange for a dollar amount or something else of value set by the entities.

  4. The signatures of all entities engaged in the agreement.
4- Contracts of anything Illegal are not recognized by the court.  
5- You must use blue or black ink only when signing a contract, green is used for temporary notes and red ink is used on sample contracts and makes a contract void.
6- If the contract has multiple pages you must initial all the pages. This is to protect you from signing a contract and then someone switching out pages, paragraphs, or points without signatures attached.
7- Anytime something is changed in a contract but the contract is not redrafted all parties must initial the changes to indicate the change is agreeable by all parties.
8- All entities entering a contract are entitled to a copy of the agreement engaged it.

If you follow these instructions your contracts and legal agreements will be very, very difficult to contest and you will remain protected.

Starting Your Own Business... Why You Should and How To Get Started...

By Madame Margherite

When deciding to form a business the first thing I like to do is look at all the types of businesses possible, and pick a formation that fits best for me based on what I want to do.

The types of businesses or corporations are:

Sole Proprietorship
Limited Liability Company
Limited Partnership
Limited Liability Partnership
C Corporation
S Corporation
Non Profit Organizations

I now know to go straight to and then navigate through the site until I have my answers.

Filing for an LLC
You need:
A unique name
Articles of Organization:
Announce in your local paper that you have formed your LLC
Get an EIN (Employee Identification Number) so that you can hire employees and pay taxes.

A C Corporation has share holders and exchange money and assets.
They are subject to taxes regardless of whether or not they profit
They pay taxes and then split profit evenly among share holders
Each share holder has to pay taxes individually and as the corporation as a whole this is called double taxation
C Corps can operate internationally.
C Corps reduce individual taxes by paying most of their expenses out of corporate funds and pay themselves a very low salary.
C Corps are the types of businesses that qualify for bailouts because of the taxes they pay and because they can very easily become a business umbrella due to all the people with stakes in the corporation.

They are legal individual entities also owned by share holders.
Big successful S Corps can sell stock backed by their company which makes it easier to raise capital and profitable to sell if desired. However it’s the most complex and costly corporation to form. The tax forms are complex and have many legal requirements.
Best for people who intend to expand or become chains.
Also the type of Corporation that may qualify for bailouts.

Limited Partnerships:
Limited Partnerships are corporations that split responsibility between all the owners. They must be partnerships and cannot be owned by one person. This is useful when looking for a silent partner. One of you will be solely responsible for all the initial capital to form and run the business and one will be solely responsible for day to day operations. Neither partner will have incur responsibility for the other’s position. Partners of an LP spilt profits as described in the partnership agreement.
First you register your company based on your Partnership agreement, a customized contract between partners.
Then you choose a name. If you don’t agree on one in your partnership agreement then you will be assigned a name based on the last names of the partners.
Then finally you get permits that you might need.
Another benefit to an LP is that Partners can sell off fractions of their shares.

5-      How are you combating bigotry and biases within the departments you are responsible for?

6-      How are you ensuring that solving victimizing crimes takes priority over victimless crimes and revenue generating tasks, within the departments you are responsible for?

It is important to me that the Mayor’s Office, Board of Commissions and Police Department not participate in Abuse of Power, and that such entities protect my community, as well as me, from Police Brutality.

I thank you for taking the time to read this letter, and in advance for responding with answers. In addition to providing me answers I request that you also prioritize the Prevention and Punishment of Police Brutality to the absolute best of your ability, and to the furthest of your reach.
