Mr. Steadson now admits that he wasn't telling the truth, but he continues to lie
The unmasked and unqualified 'Amway' Lord Haw Haw, Mr.'IBOFB' Steadson, has posted a false and defamatory statement on your Blog which implies that Robert FitzPatick's declaration to the California court which heard the Pokorny RICO lawsuit against 'Amway/Quixtar,' was initially rejected by the court on the grounds that he is not qualified as as an expert witness. In reality, it was 'Amway's' attorneys, not the court, who described Robert FitzPatrick as being unqualified. These attorneys were following typical bully-boy tactics which sought to prevent the case from going to trial by invoking 'Amway's' own (apparently obligatory) Mafia-style internal system of dispute resolution. Amazingly, this system required destitute 'Amway' victims first to hand over thousands of dollars to the same racketeers who had cheated them, before they could even get an unfair hearing. However, the Judge evidently deduced that this parallel system of (in)justice was itself part of the 'Amway' racket, and decided to allow the Pokorny RICO suit against 'Amway' (which would have included Robert FitzPatrick's declaration) to go to trial. In the adult world of quantifiable reality, one of the main reasons why the same 'Amway' attorneys then were forced to agree to an out-of-court settlement of the Pokorny RICO suit that will cost their employers $155 millions, was that they were unable to refute Robert FitzPatrick's expert analysis of the so-called 'Amway/Quixtar MLM Business Model,' which reveals that (over a period of more than 50 years) tens of millions of transient and ill-informed 'Amway/Quixtar' victims have been condemned to lose their time and money to the benefit of a handful of greedy racketeers.
Despite his previous lies, Mr. Steadson has now been forced to concede on your Blog that Robert FitzPatick's declaration to the California court which was to hear the rest of the Pokorny RICO lawsuit against 'Amway/Quixtar,' is substantially accurate. Conveniently, he now claims to be unaware that 'Amway's' aggressive echelon of attorneys were unable to have the declaration rejected as the latter stages of these unstoppable judicial proceedings loomed.
Thus Robert FitzPatrick would have been allowed to declare to the court::
'Based on my analysis of Quixtar and the related Kingpin "Tools" business of selling and distributing books, tapes and seminars to Quixtar recruits (IBOs), I characterize the business models of both organizations as pyramid schemes that are inherently deceptive, unfair and harmful.
To reach this conclusion, among other things, I examined the published data from Quixtar regarding its commission payouts in recent years. Applying this data to a statistical sample of distributors reveals that 99.4% of all the IBOs earned on average just $13.41 per week before product purchases, all business expenses and taxes. The average income is far less than the costs of the business, resulting in 99% of victims of Quixtar making no profit. Fewer than 1 person in 10 000 are at the "Diamond and above" levels, the upper ranks of the Quixtar chain that every new recruit is urged to aspire to.
The massive loss rates among Quixtar victims that are revealed in Quixtar's own data, are the inevitable mathematical result of the endless chain business model. In this model the success of the IBO is based on continuous recruiting of additional distributors (IBOs) who are induced to make monthly purchases for their own consumption, rather than making retail sales in the open marketplace. In the recruitment model only those participants at the top levels of the pyramid can earn true profits, since the source of a participant's real income is the expenditures of those below them on the pyramid, and only a small percentage can be on those top positions. The untenable model results in approximately 70% of IBOs quitting Quixtar within the first year. The mission of this deceptive business model is to continuously enroll losing investors (IBOs) and replace them as they suffer losses and quit the program.
Millions of ordinary Americans as well as people from many other countries have been targets of Quixtar's pyramid recruitment campaign. They are lured by claims and promises of a unique and extraordinary new income opportunity. The complex pay plan that concentrates commission payments at the top levels of the recruitment chain is seldom understood or even known by many new recruits. They are uninformed about the loss rates and drop out rates amongst distributors (IBOs). Virtually none has knowledge about the profits and ownership patterns related to the "Tools" businesses.'
Your free-thinking readers will notice that this unchallenged explanation of the 'Amway' swindle, is in full agreement with our own.
