Selling Stolen Bras On EBay Is Not Legal According to NY Police

September 3, 2008


A New York man has been charged with selling $80,000 worth of stolen Victoria’s Secret bras online. Prosecutors say 41-year-old George Tutaya was arraigned Tuesday on charges of possessing stolen property. He faces up to seven years in prison if convicted. A telephone call to his attorney hasn’t been returned. Prosecutors say Tutaya used eBay auction and PayPal payment accounts to sell the brassieres for about $25 each. The bras retail for $40 to $80. Prosecutors say records recovered at Tutaya’s home in Queens link him to the sale of more than 2,000 bras. They say another 650 stolen bras were recovered in his home.

400 Manhole Covers Stolen in Flint Michigan

July 15, 2008


In Flint, Michigan, city officials say that nearly 400 cast iron covers and grates were probably stolen. I am sure most readers are wondering what anyone would steal manhole covers for. Authorities seem to think that the manhole covers were likely sold for scrap metal. A cover can fetch $20 from a scrap yard but can cost the city more than $200 to replace.

Officials in neighboring Burton say they’ve lost about 200 covers and grates during the same period. Utilities supervisor Mike Holzer says it leaves behind holes up to 35 feet deep.

Genesee County officials say they’ve been able to reduce thefts of county-owned covers by outfitting them with a bolt that is turned by a wrench only they have.

As any historian would likely recognize, with the decline in the economy, petty crime almost always rises. History would dictate that minimizing crime would require the improvement of the economy by creating jobs. Again, if the economy is to blame, Bush is to blame. Perhaps, Bush should be arrested and tried for conspiracy to steal manhole covers. What is next? Deregulating the manhole cover industry?

Bush Encourages World Toward Sanctions in Zimbabwe

July 7, 2008

President George W. Bush has urged the international community to punish the Zimbabwe government for suppressing its political opponents and using violence at the ballot box

“I care deeply about the people of Zimbabwe,” Bush told the G-8 annual summit in Hokkaido Toyako, Japan. “I am extremely disappointed in the elections, which I labeled a sham election.”

Incumbent Zimbabwe President Robert Mugabe maintained power as the only candidate in last month’s election. His only challenger, opposition leader Morgan Tsvangirai, withdrew from the race.

Tsvangirai said his Movement For Democratic Change party decided not to participate because of an ongoing campaign of political intimidation and violence at the hands of Mugabe supporters.

Tsvangirai won the most votes in the March 29 election, but not enough — according to official figures — to avoid a runoff.

UK Prime Minister Gordon Brown, also at the G-8 summit, said Monday that he believes “there is growing support for sanctions against the Mugabe regime” because very few countries recognize his government.

The British prime minister added that there is growing support for a U.N. envoy to be dispatched to “to make sure that the parties in Zimbabwe know that we’ve got to work for a transition so that there is a legitimate government, one that we can support, and one, when it does exist, we will want to help with the reconstruction (of Zimbabwe).”

Jakaya Kikwete, president of Tanzania and current head of the African Union, is one of seven African leaders at the summit. AP reported him as saying on the issue of Zimbabwe “that the only area that we may differ is on the way forward.

“We are saying no party can govern alone in Zimbabwe, and therefore the parties have to work together in a government and look at the future of their country together.”

Meanwhile UK Foreign Secretary David Miliband Monday called on South Africa to support a “way out” for neighboring Zimbabwe that includes a transitional, opposition-led government.

“I believe this is an agenda that is not a British agenda or a Western agenda but a humanitarian agenda around which the world can unite,” said Miliband in a speech at the University of South Africa in Pretoria.

The UK has been a harsh critic of Zimbabwean President Robert Mugabe who Miliband blamed for turning “the weapons of the state against his own people” in order to retain his grip on power.

Mugabe has been Zimbabwe’s only leader since independence in 1980, before which it was called Rhodesia and ruled by the UK. Britain is one of many countries that do not recognize Mugabe’s reelection.

Miliband has called for the current Mugabe government to be replaced by a transitional government to be led by Tsvangirai. He is visiting South Africa, a member of the U.N. Security Council which is expected to consider a sanctions resolution against Zimbabwe.

“The world community needs to unite at the U.N. this week not just to condemn violence but to initiate sanctions on the regime and send a human rights envoy to Zimbabwe,” Miliband said.

Bush McCain need 100 years to improve the economy and to bring troops home.

July 5, 2008

Bush in his speech to the G8 stated that “There is no quick fix for the economy”. Some how, I feel he was inferring, if he had more time, he could fix it. It would take Bush & McBush at least a 100 years to begin to understand it and another 100 to improve it. By then we would, no doubt, be known as the New China… a name change after defaulting on our gazillion dollar loan payments to Old China.

Bennett’s Idea To Abort Black Babies Missed Killing Obama

June 24, 2008

inplacenews bennet

Degenerate gambler and CNN side kick Bill Bennett wrote an op-ed piece critical of Barack Obama’s foreign policy. Simply based on Billy’s past racisit comments it’s safe to say the piece is derived from Bennet’s ethnic prejudice. Why is he on CNN? I’m fearful of that answer. If he wants to abort black babies to reduce crime he must just LOVE the thought of one of those poor innercity black babies growing up to be President Of The United States.

Lance Cpl. David Motari – SICK and TWISTED

June 13, 2008

Lance Cpl. David Motari of 1st Battalion, 3rd Marine Regiment is a small part of the worst this country has to offer. Our brave men and women fighting in a war ushered in by lies and miss-truths have and continue to sacrifice their lives for this country. Can we trade one of these brave dead soldiers in for David Motari?

A Youtube video surfaced in March showing Lance Cpl. David Motari laughing as he throws a puppy off a cliff to its death. The video was shot by San Diego-based Sgt. Crismarvin Banez Encarnacion who laughs and says “that’s mean Motari”.

David Motari is being removed from the Marines and Crismarvin Banez Encarnacion is receiving some kind of disciplinary action. I think his punishment should be to toss David Motari off the same cliff… wait that’s not punishment!

WAY TO GO MARINES!

Bush Hindering Quick FDA Funding – Say it Aint So!

June 11, 2008

U.S president George W. Bush is being accused of “drastically hindering” the Food and Drug Administration’s ability to quickly get an important boost in funding. The accusation comes from Sen. Arlen Specter (R – PA). This comes from an interesting and telling article written by The Wall Street Journal’s JARED A. FAVOLE that quotes Spector from a letter which reads the “Administration is drastically hindering necessary immediate relief by delaying the funding for eight or nine months.” He added, “FDA needs this money now to save lives.”

Wiki explains that The FDA (Food And Drug Administration) is responsible for the safety regulation of most types of foods, dietary supplements, drugs, vaccines, biological medical products, blood products, medical devices, radiation-emitting devices, veterinary products, and cosmetics. The FDA also enforces section 361 of the Public Health Service Act and the associated regulations, including sanitation requirements on interstate travel as well as specific rules for control of disease on products ranging from pet turtles to semen donations for assisted reproductive medicine techniques.

“The 81 deaths due to contaminated heparin and the one suspected death in the ongoing salmonella outbreak show that we cannot wait nine months to give FDA the resources needed to protect the public,” Sen. Specter said, according to a copy of the letter.

With a 28% approval rating perhaps “W” wants to shave that number down by allowing further contaminations and poisonings… could that be it? This President lied us into a false war where more than 4000 U.S troops have been killed with more to come. The price of oil is up almost 250% since he took office. PEOPLE YOU ELECTED AN OIL MAN PRESIDENT AND WONDER HOW AND WHY THE PRICE OF OIL IS AT A CRIPPLING HIGH!

President George W. Bush has been bought and paid for by big business (the pharmaceutical companies are high up there). Why would he want to assist with the regulation of the folks that own him? Why would he want to save lives. ANSWER: Because there is NOTHING in it for him or his handlers.

GREAT article Jared!

McDonalds Stops Serving Sliced Tomatoes on Sandwiches

June 9, 2008

Watch Out For The Tomatoes
McDonald’s says it has ordered all of its restaraunts to stop serving sliced tomatoes in its restaurants over concerns about Salmonella food poisoning associated with uncooked tomatoes. Danya Proud, spokesperson for McDonalds, said that the world’s largest hamburger chain has stopped serving sliced tomatoes altogether in the United States locations as a precaution until the source of the salmonella responsible for the illnesses in at least 16 states is discovered and the problem is dealt with properly.

She went on to say that McDonald’s will continue to serve grape tomatoes in its salads because no problems have been linked to that variety of tomatoes. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has said at least 23 people have been hospitalized, and no deaths have been reported.

Barack Obama – Presumptive Nominee

June 4, 2008

Barack Obama makes history as the first African-American to become a major political party nominee for the position of President of the United States. We have come a long way from the back of the bus to the head of the country. Whether or not you choose to vote for Obama in November, we all must respect what he has accomplished. He was the underdog, behind in the polls only a year ago. Hillary Clinton despite her loss has also accomplished so much. The laast woman to come close to her position was Geraldine Ferraro, but I believe Hillary has surpassed even her. This election has been historical, leaving us with something to be proud of after the complete fiasco of the previous two election cycles. I enoucrage people to nevertheless read all the candidates records, listen to their speeches, and judge them individually. My own mother wanted to vote for Hillary because she was a woman. My friends wanted to vote for Obama because he is NOT white. This is far to grave of a situation not to take it very seriously. Vote on the issues. Not on color or sex. In the end, as long as we do not vote in the same of Establishment we have had (not only for the last eight years but truly for the last 16-30 years), we will be fine. Our country can only go up from here, right?
