Lots of people would like to know the answer to the question
Would you like to know when the new lobby application will be "live"?
The regulated community would like to know - after all they are responsible for getting their filings done in a timely and accurate manner.
The media would like to know - JJOKE allegedly spent three years and $1.5 million of taxpayer money to build it so it's kind of important to see if it was worth the time and effort.
JJOKE staff would like to know - they are the ones that have been on the front lines answering questions about the yet unseen application. They can barely keep up with the backlog using the tried and true system that has been in place for almost two decades. And none of the JJOKE big shots have told them what and when the new system will go live.
The New York State Attorney Generals office would like to know - they have to defend JJOKE against my Article 78 litigation and the new application is at the center of next weeks hearing. The lawyer from the AG's office Christopher Liberati-Conant has already told the court that the application is live, a statement that we all know is not accurate. And he is now assuring us that it will really go "live" on Monday. That kind of mistake reflects badly on the AG's office but I don't blame Chris I think someone at JJOKE (probably Martin Levine) mislead him as much as JJOKE has mislead the rest of us.
But like death, taxes and JJOKE's incompetence Monday will surely arrive and we can all see the new $1.5 million application. I for one hope it's really good. Seriously I use that system every day. If it's good that makes my job easier. If it's hard to understand or use it makes me richer as more people have to hire me. The verification portion and delegated administrator function that they released several weeks ago has been great. Once you know all the ways to take advantage of it and the backdoor ways to exploit it's loopholes it is a pleasure to use. And I've picked up a lot of new clients as a result of it. They are all small clients but it all adds up. So thank you JJOKE and keep up the wall of silence it helps.
Now if the new $1.5 million system is built with the illegal regulations embedded in it, and Chris Liberati-Conant has told the Court it was, we may all be in for a long month ahead as the Court, JJOKE and the regulated community deal with the fall out from that.
Again I'm all smiles.
It's a win win for me. If the illegal regulations are found to be null and void it's JJOKE's problem to fix the new $1.5 million application but I will know more about it and sooner than anyone else. If the new regulations stand then again more business flows to the firm that knows the most about those regulations and the new system because we had to immerse ourselves in it for the lawsuit and my bottom line goes up again.
Either way my clients will know before the rest of the regulated community.
Just like I knew that JJOKE plans to go "live" Monday.
Now if they don't go live Monday I'll be sure to let you know and I think Chris will have some explaining to do to the Court.
You are all welcome!!!!
