Q: 

what are nyc closing costs, including capital gains tax, for a condo?

A:  I am not a CPA and you should consult a CPA or tax attorney regarding this but if you are a seller, your closing costs usually consist of your attorney fees, realtor fees, and NYS transfer tax. Your homeowner''s association or management company may also have fees but those are specific to whatever development you''re in. New York State transfer tax should be about $6K. With respect to your capital gains tax, you need to take the original price of the unit, including costs of purchasing, add any capital improvements, deduct any amortization you may have taken over the time you lived there - that is your cost basis. Then take your total sales price, minus costs and then deduct the cost basis. If this is your primary residence you get a $250K...

Q: 

Why is the law / legal processes the biggest money making scam on the face of the earth?

A:  The judicial system, political system, education system, medical system, and worst of all the communication system are all SOCIAL functions and should be handled socially. They should not be driven by capital. capitalism makes wonderful cars and washing machines etc. That is all it should be allowed to do. It should not be controlling the social functions of our government. All of our leaders should be drafted just like a panel of jurors. Their assets should be frozen while in office, and paid a lump sum at the end of the term. This money could be saved toward retirement. If we all had to take part in this we would...

Civil Rights and Civil Liberties Discrimination

A:  National origins and religion: can a person be denied services on the grounds of being of another nationality? Generally, no can a person be told what religion to practice and how? no can a person be denied services or called deragatory names such as "***" because of his sexual orientation?

Q: 

Is my neoclassical economics silly to want the best person in the job, whether they are legal or illegal?

A:  As long as people are receiving tax dollars for anything- schooling, food stamps, housing, they must be USA citizens. Except for racism, how can you justify the belief that a certain race of people can break any law they want? Because illegals are criminals....why not let the accountants of Enron run wall street? They`re well suited for the job. Illegals dont belong here...let them work on their own economy..so if japan is good at electronics we should import japanese or send the jobs overseas? That`ll really help America as a whole EDIT: Soooo you`re saying we should forsake the laws for the economy? Isnt that what

Q: 

Where does it talk about immigration in the u.s constitution?

A:  The constitution is almost silent about immigration. There is only a single clause in the constitution dealing with immigration and it is found in Article I, Section 8, Clause 4, which states in pertinent part as follows: "The Congress Shall have Power . . . To establish an uniform Rule of Naturalization . . . " Thus, the constitution only grants to Congress the power to establish the rules of immigration. Congress has of course done so, and all these laws can be found in Title 8 of the U.S. Code. Thomas...

Q: 

Where in the constitution did the Framers agree not to talk about slavery for 20 years? Thanks

A:  Article 1, Section 9 reads: The Migration or Importation of such Persons [SLAVES] as any of the States now existing shall think proper to admit, shall not be prohibited by the Congress prior to the Year one thousand eight hundred and eight, but a tax or duty may be imposed on such Importation, not exceeding ten dollars for each Person. Basically, the constriction was on Congress trying to pass any laws limiting slavery UNTIL 1808. So, on January 1, 1808, Congress passed legislation that prevented importation of new slaves. This was a slap in the face for the slave states, being passed on the first day possible. . my understanding is that this 20 year clause was put in our constitution so that Rhode Island could...

A:  You should probably take your contract to an attorney for advice. The agreement largely speaks for itself. For strategies about how to handle, i.e. comply with or breach the non-compete clauses in your contract, you need advice concerning your specific situation. On its face, your plan would seem to violate your contract. The non-compete clause itself seems entirely reasonable in scope. Whatever you do, be careful not to solicit your current employer''s client base, and do not take away with you any customer lists, etc., as this could give rise to further civil liability....

Q: 

Is it legal to insist that staff don't talk?

A:  the first amendment does protect your right to free speech, except, in the case where there is a breach of peace. You could be fired for not following direct orders at work. Likely you would not be able to collect unemployment because you did not follow instructions at work. Just don''t talk about it. It''s not illegal for them to ask you not to talk about the situation. In fact, it''s standard procedure. Sure you can legally talk about it ... all the way to the unemployment line. Sure, you are free to say whatever you please. Your employer is also free to speak the words "You''re fired!" *Well, he may owe Donald Trump a royalty. as others have noted the employer has every right to make this request/demand...

I was channel surfing and hit an amusing "one of those" <right of conservative> talk shows on the way back from work, where a caller claiming to be an attorney suggested the easy way to get rid of spam was for citizens to initiate a petition, most likely in a smaller state, that made a certain amount of Spam or Adware a capital offense. Defendents would include any person who had a part in the creation, distribution or financing of that software or ads, from the software writer to the president of the company if it could be shown they knew what they were creating.
