Hot dogs? You gotta be kidding me. Nobody eats those things anymore. Thing of the past. It’s over for hot dogs in this land. History.
Naw, just kidding. I got started a few weeks ago and I’m enjoying myself. It’s such a refreshing change from my regular job. I scored a California Cart for cheap. It had never been used. I then lucked out with a location. It’s not a huge producer, but it’s a steady one. Now I don’t have to do private security anymore which is good because standing around looking intense while your rich client gets drunk enough to fall on the floor is just not what it’s cracked up to be. I don’t care how good the money is. There been times I wanted to beat the guy up myself and give him his money back. I’d spank the kids for less. And for another thing, you meet some really nice people working in security but there are also a lot of total creeps. I mean jumped up, well paid low lives. People that like to hurt people. Not family folks. Yeah, all in all, I’d have to say that selling folks a quailty product for a fair price beats beating people up any day. Yeah, go with the hot dogs. Everybody loves those things.
Hey guys, to get your used cart it’s CRAIG’S LIST. CRAIG’S LIST. REPEAT, YOUR USED CART IN ON CRAIG’S LIST. Oh yeah and if you are near Arizona, my friend Pete is selling his rig. He’s at 602-569-2911.
All you people asking how much money we make and wondering why nobody wants to tell you can be summed up in one short acronym: IRS. Although there is a growing movement of scholars who challenge both the IRS and income tax in general. Briefly, these arguments come down to 4 things:
1. The 16th ammendment was never properly ratified, but even if it was,
2. The Supreme Court has repeatedly ruled that the 16th ammendment gave the government "no new powers of taxation".
3. No government official has to date been able to show anyone a law, a statute or an executive order stating that we must pay income tax. The closest they can come is "our enforcement division has badges and guns, therefore our actions are lawful". Interesting, no? See notes below.
4. Income taxation is unconstitutional because it represents a direct, unapportioned tax where the Constitution clearly stipulates that such must be apportioned uniformely among the states.
5. Only "US persons", meaning coporate persons or corporations as we say today, are taxable according to profit under US law. Monies derived from labor are not profit, but part of an exchange of value. Of course, those W-2 and 1040 forms tell you that by signing, you agree that you are a "US person" by law, and guess what you just did? Every wonder why they call it a "voluntary" return? Because you just volunteered.
How much other useless information can I pump you with? Chicago knows everything you need to know and he’ll tell you. Start simple is what he told me so that’s what I did. The food handler’s exams are easy, don’t sweat those. The one thing is make sure your cart will pass your state/county inspections. You can find the drawings for most of the popular carts online, so see if you can run one over to the inspection folks and ask them if it looks like it will pass before you buy your cart. And I’d forget about Ebay for carts. You absolutely HAVE to see the thing and see it burn before you buy. The smaller squeeze-bottles with the small tips are the secret to good presentation and presentation is SO TOTALLY COOL. Sell "art dogs". You will quickly develop the short-term memory necessary so the customer only has to tell you how they want their ONCE. Customer service is the best part of this thing for you and the customer. But Chicago will tell you to make it snappy. Get your customer his or her dog and get the next person served rapid-fire.
I herebye trademark the term "range dogs". Trademarks are free to anyone selling dogs on a range. Anyone else has to pay us money to use the term &,26,194721.037,1,40620,18.104.22.168
