the Manta.com website You might be surprised
Manta.com website includes a database of over 63 million U.S. and
foreign companies. That database info is provided by Dunn &
Bradstreet (D&B). Manta.com will provide preliminary information on
each of these millions of companies for free. If you want more
“in-depth” info, there’s a fee.
since this article is about “funny” stuff, and paying fees isn’t fun,
let’s run a few free searches and see what we can find. You might be
example, if you type “Government of the United States” into the
Manta.com search engine, you’ll be whisked to a list of “7,666 matching
The first “company” on the list is:
“Government of the United States (US Government) HQ
“the u.s. Capitol Washington DC”
The “HQ” stands for “headquarters”.
you scroll down the list of other companies below the “Government of
the United States,” you’ll find “branches” like “Executive Office of the
United States Government” (6 entries), “United States Department of the
Air Force (US Government),” “The Navy United States Department of (US
Government Naval Reserves),” and “United States Court of Appeals For The
11th Circuit United States Courthouse”.
Apparently, the Navy, Air Force and Courts are “companies”.
That’s kinda “funny,” doncha think?
you click on the “Government of the United States HQ” link, you’ll see
another website page with some fairly detailed—and possibly
For example, you’ll see that this “Government of the United States” has its address at:
“the u.s. capitol
“Washington, DC 20515-0001”
Its phone number is “(202) 224-3121”. Business Hours are “24/7”.
can click the “map” link and see a graphic indicating that this
“Government” is located on “Capitol Hill” (same place as Congress) in
of that seems particularly surprising (other than the idea that our
“Government” might be a “company” and/or a conglomerate of “companies”).
But the Manta.com report does begin to seem a little strange under the heading “About Government Of The United States” where we read: “government, owner archbishop deric r. mccloud of basilica shrine michigan and 4th ne street washington,dc”.
Say whut? Does that abbreviated text really indicate that the
owner of the “Government Of The United States” is an archbishop named
Deric R. McCloud? Who could be dumb enough to think (or even mistakenly
write) that the “Government of the United States” was owned by an
A: Apparently, Dunn & Bradstreet was dumb enough.
just in case you think we can’t be talking about the “Government of the
United States,” take a gander at the “Additional Information” heading
and you’ll read (as of August 6th, A.D. 2010):
recipients [sic] of federal funds that have any kind of criminal case
or felony federal, state, local or served time in prison federal, state,
benefits terminate 7/26/10 by Barack Obama administration.”
reference to “barack obama” shows that this entry for “Government of
the United States HQ” does, indeed, describe the very same “Government
of the United States” that we all so love and admire. (Don’t forget that
this “Government” and all its various “branches” are being reported by
D&B to be individual, private companies.)
also curious that D&B describes the “Government of the United
States” as a company and “HQ” over a number of other “branches” (like
the Army, Navy, Air Force and courts) that are also deemed to be
Somethin’ funny’s goin’ on here.
If you’re up for even more funny stuff, enter “Nancy Pelosi” into the
Manta.com search engine. You’ll be taken to a list of “2 matching U.S.
1) “United States House of Representatives (Congresswoman Nancy Pelosi) BRANCH” at her San Francisco address; and
2) “Representative Nancy Pelosi (Congresswoman Nancy Pelosi) BRANCH” at her Washington DC address.
Click the #1 link, look for the heading “About United States House of Representatives,” and you’ll read:
States House Of Representatives is a private company categorized under
Legislative Bodies, National and located in San Francisco, CA . . . .”
Whut th’ . . . ?!
US House of Representative is “a private company”?! And it’s “located
in San Francisco, CA” (the home of the Speaker of the House)?
Look under the heading “United States House of Representatives Business Information” and you’ll read:
“United States House Of Representatives also does business as Congresswoman Nancy Pelosi.”
House of Representatives not only “does business” but does so “as
Congresswoman Nancy Pelosi”? Is “Nancy Pelosi” something like a
trademark, alter ego or registered agent for the “private company” we
call the “House of Representatives”? Is she the CEO and/or D/B/A for the
House of Representatives, Inc.?
the 2009 edition of Manta.com’s report on Nancy Pelosi (that I recorded
and saved) declared that the US House of Representatives was “also
traded as Nancy Pelosi”.
traded as?! What does that mean? Are we talking about packages of
bubble gum that include government “trading cards” featuring photos of
the House of Representatives and Nancy Pelosi? Or is the House of
Representatives and/or Nancy Pelosi some sort of stock? If so, who’s
buying, who’s selling? Who owns that “company”?
OOPS! “Government of the United States” listed on Dunn & Bradstreet as a Private Corporation.
