    Nice work Heraldo. and a shout out to WiKi, too. Of course Ark-man spreads his money around. that’s a good trick practiced by shady Wall Street bankers and proponents of hedge funds. If arkly is within the law, its time to change the law. Mike Thompson what are doing to protect the rest of us???

    mega tax breaks galore. The information presented makes it seem that a compulsive popularity identity complex (health problem) exists, rendering the needed list of divestors by name and paper shufflings by trade.

    Actually, kinda surprised the guy is still awake, considering all the lost sleep associated with all these affiliations. Wow, what a list!

    Ok, what type of people have a popularity complex problem that is relieved by creating false paper presentations of business shiftings/creations on paper for high speed tax default schemes that naive people get all enamored over even though hardly a few could explain why.

    This is probably not atypical — a master corporation and a zillion subsidiaries.

    Take a moment to reflect on the fact that this is what American business has evolved into — in much of the corporate sector, more energy is put into “accounting design” and tax sheltering than into getting a job done.

    If you wonder why the country is going down the tubes, think about what a football team would be like if, before every play, the opposing quarterbacks consulted with their tax attorneys, public relations experts, marketing flacks, and accountants to determine not whether the play would move the ball but whether it would maximize their quarterly income while providing a golden parachute if the play failed.

    If business is straightforward and is “in your face” up-front, no honest or ethical person would need so many covers. Now, if it is for tax savings (like we both know), then that would be the easy retort/response to such criticism presenteed as a list of aliases, honestly, in explaining away why such a long list.

    To say any person is “spread out”, well what’s the reasoning. History proves popularity complexes exist surrounding business and money. Truth!

    May 20, 2011 at 8:07 am


    using a football analogy does seem accurate. Judging the NFL, greed and popularity have ruined that entertainment for many, most of whom have yet to realize it. The fans are getting raped at the ticket box, merchandise purchases, etc…. The league and players squabble over royalty/money while avoiding the argument that the fans will subsidize these latest CBA mediations. Pro athletes love the game or sport less, while going goo goo – ga ga over the fame, popularity, money and all that accompanies that lifestyle…….and the fans continue to allow for it. Too many infected people with the stupid bug.

    if we, as a country, end corporate welfare, then what to do about the employees of corporate welfare? Tars and feathers?

    People who take corporate schemer jobs that destroy, defame characters, steal from others, create larger government regulatory control and power, etc… are obviously people who only care about THEIR WELL-BEING……kinda like the 30 month dude named Ghiliarducci, even though more like him roam free.

    When the fan blades stop, who a person worked for will be critical in so far as punsihments levied out by the abused. Take the Civil War for example – who did the person represent? What were poeple dying for?

    Of course, many of the items on this list are one time projects that needed a name and their own corporate (legal) status to work. New problem? New project. New financial status? New trust for the famlily. Working in another state? Legal need to file papers in that state and follow their rules, rename, separate for accounting a legal purposes.

    It all looks normal to me.

    Good research Heraldo. This proves it beyond a doubt. Arkley owns a lot of businesses.

    May 20, 2011 at 8:46 am

    Corporations – to form, a BOD is required. Who else besides RA sits on these collective boards? Even LLC have requirements to form a BOD. Let me guess, it is similar to the “set-up” that the Los Angeles Dodgers current ownership is rying to scheme away – use family members to create fictitious business names after creating fictitious business BOD’s.


    Taxes and government forms associated with fascist subsidizing of business so that a few can become powerful in exchange for burdening the majority with debt and higher societal values and costs.

    Current Federal and State governments don’t ever want corporations to cease – as these top level agencies understand that corporations are “giving power” to the government to expand, not contract. Anyone who has trust for Americanized politics is short-sighted and brain impaired. Afterall, how many years of fiscal abuse must occur before the Americanized sheeple get sheared? It is true that immigrants are misled to move here as well.

    While I have problems with Arkley’s behavior and treatment of others, I don’t find this list unusual. I’m sure these LLCs, etc are set up for tax and liability purposes and are within the law, though one might take issue with the law. It becomes a problem, IMO, when LLCs and the like are used as a means to escape debt.

    Just look at who Bass supports: Glenn Ziemer and Dave Edmonds. Ziemer is a libertarian anti-planning retired govt. employee. Funny how so many people who worked in gov’t and probably have nice pension checks are anti-govt.

    So, Sunshine for Humboldt is an Arkley corporation, and its president is Ann Corkery, senior counsel for Security National. Not that I’m surprised, just didn’t know for sure. The guy practically owns a controlling interest in KINS judging by how often his ads run.

    Arkley owns a lot of business or a lot of shells?

    8:26, explain what this means: “Of course, many of the items on this list are one time projects that needed a name and their own corporate (legal) status to work”

    Don’t you mean “to work as a tax write off”? Looks like a shell game to me.

    One example is CUE VI, the “owner” of the Balloon Track. What do you think would happen if CUE VI filed for bankruptcy? And what would happen to Security National and all of Arkley’s other corporations if CUE VI went bankrupt? Now you’re getting it.

    It is very common for real estate investors to have a separate LLC for each and every property owned. It is a prudent risk management strategy.

    As for taxes, the comments above show ZERO understanding of taxation of corporate entities. LLC’s income are generally paid through the owner regardless of how many LLC he/she/it ownes. Furthermore, each LLC has to pay an annual franchise tax, which could be $800 or more per entity. When you add it up, the cost of many LLCs vs. a few is fairly high, when, again, the income is all added together and taxed at the owner’s marginal tax rate.

    9:33 it is typical in business, whether using shells or not using shells, to have many corporations, LLCs. People who know what they doing hire lawyers and accountants to set things up legally for them. Your favorite business (that you consider to be valid and socially responsible) does the same thing.

    Remember, in order to enjoy something that is “100% deductible”, one must have more income that the loss to balance it.

    May 21, 2011 at 9:27 am

    1 cent is more income, same as tax brackets where 1 cent will push you over or pull you under a higher or lower tax rate.

    11.50am yesterday is correct. Forming LLC’s for your various ventures is the smart way and the common way for smart peoptle to protect their interests.

    You have 15 different businesses or rental properties you should have 15 different LLC’s.

    Only uninformed people or people who want to appeal to and manipulate the uninformed would try to make a big deal about it.

    The only question is, is Heraldo really that ignorant ? Or is he dissing you by playing to your ignorance ? Again I repeat, this obsession of all things RA is pathetic and sick.

    HiFi – I’m wondering how well you know the Arkleys? Really know them? Maybe you are an employee, business associate or friend who is currently held in high esteem? Most with any history know that status can change at any given moment. Your defense of them seems to go beyond someone who simply shares political views, and to be more personal. Yet, you seem to not really know who they are. I don’t find your defense of the Arkleys sick but, rather, pathetic because it seems as though you have no true knowledge of who you are standing up for. For your own sake, I hope your involvement is superficial and limited.

    9.37am, I know them well and have for many years.

    I am not friends with them and I have seen and experienced RA’s worst side.

    But I don’t have to be friends with them to appreciate all the good thinks Arkley has done for our town. And unless you are on welfare or don’t live in Eureka you also have benefited greatly from their good works.

    Your reading comprehension skills are sorely lacking if you think I am defending RA’s personal actions. I am not. These e-mails are awful damn silly. But open your eyes man, and look around our town. Then send RA an apology note.

    HB – probably no change; but, then again, the “Fair Tax Plan Option” also needs the amendments I have suggested, won’t you opine?

    One thing is for sure, a national sales tax ONLY on “non-basic” sales transactions is the way to go for fairness in tax revenue generation. Let those individuals who spend money on consumer products not basic subsidize the public revenue streams that are to pay for societal needs created by the impacts of that consumption. Remember, businesses that make a product to sell that is non-basic also pays along the way sales taxes on the materials purchased to manufacture the consumer product. No taxation upon labor either. Please understand, a national sales tax only on non-basic goods and products(sales).

    To steal a structure of language from HB,

    have an educational day,

    Jeffrey, I hope you realize the “Fair Tax” plan or a national sales tax would mean a tremendous tax increase on the poor and middle class.

    A plan that would hit families with children and homeowners the hardest.
