Bonds are one of the ways that the Corporation of Maine finances its perpetual expansion and dominance over the free enterprise system. As the corporation of Maine concentrates the bulk of available capital in Maine under its own control, it drives the collective socio-economic culture of Maine in the direction determined by a class of overlords- some elected (the legislature and administration) and some not (the tzars and private partners in "public-private relationships). Governor Lepage's recent comment that "$100,000.00 a year income is not that wealthy" reflects the age old character of those in pursuit of wealth for wealth's sake, it is never enough- the goal is perpetually moved- one can never reach it because there is always someone wealthier until one gets to the level of the George Soros's of the world, a man on record of saying it is fun to use his wealth to destroy nations. This attitude is also present of the constant PR for the advancement of Maine State Inc which perpetually emphasizes competition with other states and Maine achieving "global" or "world class"distinction.

As for your question regarding retail sector, retail is not an incentive priority primarily because retail is largely driven by demographics, they locate where there is a population that should be inclined to buy whatever they’re selling. Retail also has the highest failure rate of business sectors. Quoted from an email conversation with Mr Douglas Ray, lobbyist for DECD Corporation ( official name legislative liaison) One need only say the words LL Bean to deflate Excluded Retail Sector excuse #1.
§13059. State agencies to cooperate (DECD CORPORATION)
Quasi-corporationDefinition An entity, such as a county or school district, that has not been incorporated by a state, but that performs some functions of a corporation. Sometimes called a quasi-municipal corporation. Cornell University Law School
Municipal Home Rule.
- The DECD Corporation is authorized to take money form any source and so can find other funding in the private sector just as private sector businesses must do.
- In the model of a communist system, The University of Maine Corporation is authorized by the Maine legislature to claim ownership of intellectual property.
- Any business in which the University of Maine Corporation is a partner is, at least partially, a state owned business (Marxist political system)
- In 1981 The Maine legislature declared the University of Maine to be a corporate Instrumentality of the State.
- In 1995 the Maine legislature granted itself jurisdiction over the educational curriculum at the University Of Maine Corporation.
- In or About 2002 , the Maine legislature established Marxist and Socialist Studies as a minor at the University of Southern Maine Corporation.
- In 2002 the Maine legislature granted ownership of intellectual property rights to the University of Maine Corporation.
How can the legislature of Maine, operating in violation of the Maine Constitution, Article IV part Third, Section 14, in every instance that it charters a corporation for state purposes, pretend not to be cognizant that a political system in which the state controls the means of production (capital) is Marxism and at the same time be the authority responsible for the entrenchment of Marxist and Socialist Studies as a minor at the University of Maine Corporation? If the Maine legislature is so uneducated and unaware about political philosophy- then what business does it have assigning itself jurisdiction over educational curriculum at the University of Maine corporation?
So with the corporation of Maine set up to take money from "any source" and to profit off of its investments, particularly in the ownership of intellectual property rights, why does this for-profit corporation need to raid the pockets of the general taxpayer every election season? Private corporations do not have access to funds produced by the fruit of the labor of the general public and so the corporation of Maine has set itself up to be in unfair competition with the (general) private sector. The corporation of Maine is a hegemonic power which can rewrite the rules of the game as needed in pursuit of its own agenda (as it did to drive our Norwegian company Statoil - re-writing regulations midstream so the the University of Maine business consortium could claim ownership of windmill industry in Maine)
Dispersed by The DECD Corporation and The Maine technology Institute
- Governed by a board of directors appointed by state. (technical definition of a tzar)
- The Maine technology institute is a non-profit public charity providing capital to for-profit investors by matching the private investment by 100%. I have not found anything in the package of gifts that the corporation of Maine provides for private investors which prohibits the private investor from then using the amount once doubled by Maine's public charity for investors to apply for Maine Seed Capital Tax credit - after first visiting Maine's Pine Tree Zone Gift Center for Capitalists to pick up their 100% tax exemption of corporate and personal income tax and to arrange for the general Maine taxpayer to cover up to 80% of its high end payroll taxes - thanks to the involuntary generosity of the general Maine taxpayer as so mandated by the legislative board of the corporation of Maine.
Once the private for-profit investor has secured tax exempt status he can take the investment doubled by the Maine's charity for profiteers to cash in on an up to 60% refund of his investment - which is a 120% reimbursement of the starting point investment thanks once again to the involuntary generosity of the Maine taxpayer as so mandated by the legislative board of the corporation of Maine via the "Expanded and Improved Seed Capital Tax Credit" which is a "refundable tax credit" meaning that if no taxes are owed- the taxpayers owe the investor a cash refund on their investment.
Last year in a move uncritically supported by Maine's media, the legislature increased by eight-fold the rate at which it can re-distribute the fruit of the general taxpayer's labor to capitalists and the owners of the means of production. This increase in the amount was not reported in the Maine media- neither was it reported that the "Expanded and Improved Seed Capital tax Credit" was expanded by opening up the gifts offered involuntarily by Maine taxpayers to out of state investors- transforming the tax credit- referred to as "reduced revenue" to an out and out cash payment to investors who never owed any taxes to the corporation of Maine to begin with, - this was heralded by the Maine media as a bill that we had to pass as Maine would probably fall into a very deep recession if we didn't (my words)
While the taxpayer funded lobbyist for the DECD Corporation, Mr Douglas Ray, had no opinion about a bill attempting to support to manufacturing, agricultural and creative industries located in the State of Maine, Mr Douglas Ray strongly supported the Expanded and Improved Seed Capital Tax Credit- which easily passed out legislature with 100% vote in the Senate ( don't know roll call for House)
So think about how this "public -private relationship" works- public funds matched by private funds but the private investment is then reimbursed possibly in an amount greater than the original private investment, by the taxpayers - who have no percentage of ownership.
- . Do you really want to vote for bonds that support the continued manipulations of Maine State Inc?
