No doubt this Cosmo will flee if given the opportunity. I do not mean any disrespect Judge Hurley but you are not grasping the fact that you are dealing with a high level of sociopath.

If he can afford to pay for private security to watch him he should use the money to repay the investors he ripped off. He might as well start serving his sentence now and get used to being in prison for a very long time.

Why let him dissipate assets?

Give him three hots and a cot and those and Bubba will improve his memory, FAST.

They should start thinking of the victims and put the perps where they belong.

Re: The Death of an American Icon Michael Jackson:

I was one of the few people who had the pleasure of meeting Michael Jackson on two occasions several years ago.

I remember first meeting Michael Jackson at the dentist office of Doctor Ira Titunic, the dentist to the stars and sports personalities.

The second time I met Michael Jackson was at a charity event hosted by David Gest and I had this Captain EO Poster that I got at Disney World and I wanted Michael Jackson to autograph it for me but I didn’t want to bother him, suffice to say he signed it for me and than afterward, we both chatted with each other and I wanted to know Michael Jackson the human being not the celebrity and I could see the sadness behind his eyes and I asked him if he needed a hug and he was taken aback by my kind jester, to me Michael Jackson was more than a superstar, he was a great humanitarian and cared about all of man kind, he was most happier when he was around his legion of fan.

He was the all time superstar of all time and will definitely be missed by everyone, young and old, no one didn’t know who Michael Jackson.

He was the best entertainer of all time and no knows will ever compare to his unusual talents that changed the world.

I had the privilege of being in the company of some of the most famous, respected, successful people of our time.

I wanted all of you to know what a fantastic human being he really was.

Michael, wherever you are, we all will remember you for everything you’ve done throughout your life, rest in peace.

Thank you,

Re:Nicholas Cosmo & Agape World, Inc:

I'm glad the judge saw through Mr. Nicholas Cosmo sham and if I had my way,Nicholas Cosmo would never get out of jail until he pays all of us the victims all of our money back and then do some prison time before he gets released, but the way the justice system is, he will undoubably get out soon.

Heaven help us if he does, because it will send a bad message to others that will follow him with other Ponzi schemes.
Thank You.

Re: The recent Earth Quake in Haiti:
The only reason the United States of America is getting involved with helping the Haitian victims of the recent Earth Quake is because they have an ulterial motive and will benefit greatly with charging the American taxpayers higher taxes to cover the re-building process and all the elected officials and big business will reap the financial gains from the higher taxes and re-building process, lets not be fooled for one minute here people, no one does anything or gives any money without some form of motive.
These same hypocrites were nowhere in sight when it came to helping the American victims who needed help from other various tragedies such as September 11, 2001, Hurricane Katrina, the victims of Ponzi Schemes, the recent job market loses, the recent foreclosure situation and other stuff of that nature.
This is nothing but a big sham in the eyes of the world to make the United States of America look good and to allow Elected Officials and big business to continue to steal our money and also give the news media outlets the much needed ratings and financial rewards they need, that's all it truly is.
Wake up and smell the coffee people and see the whole picture for what is really is and wait until each and every American taxpayer receives higher taxes to cover the cost of re-building Haiti despite the fact that everyone is donating monies to help Haiti.
The United States of America will also allow Haiti harden criminals to get amnesty and cause more crimes and troubles for the American people.
Just You wait and see, mark my words, I see this coming soon.
These are My personal Opinions and beliefs based on my own personal experiences.
Thank You.

Re: Arizona’s U.S District Judge Susan Bolton blocking key elements of Arizona’s New Immigration law.

To all concern American’s:
Someone should slap some sense in to that wacko judge Susan Bolton and tell her where the hell does she get the right to go against the will of the American people and the will of the Arizona voting public.
Today, I would like to say that I am so ashamed to be an American!
We need a Revolution started in this country now and American’s need to stand up and take back this country known as the United States of America by force if necessary.
For far to long illegal immigrants have been getting away with to much for much to long.
We, as American’s continue to reward these law breaking criminals whose only motives are to destroy the very foundation of this once great country.
These illegal immigrants criminals sneak in to this country illegally which is a crime, steal our jobs, don’t pay taxes which is another crime, shake up with 40 or more people in a one bedroom apartment, steal our resources, such as medical care, child care allowance, housing allowance, food stamps and so on, rip off our system, by stealing people Social Security Numbers and Credit Cards information, sell stolen items such CD’s DVD’s Social Security numbers, fake green cards and other such stuff of that nature and we continue to rewards them.
These God Damn liberals are to blame for this whole mess.
These illegal immigrants are rude, nasty, filthy disgusting, diseased infected carriers, and if everyone remembers some of those illegal immigrants are responsible for the February 26th, 1993 World Trade Center Bombing and the September 11th, 2001 destruction of the World Trade Center and the plane crashes in to the Pentagon building.
Enough is enough, we need to start to wake up and take back this country by force and stop the continued flow of illegal immigrants from coming in to this country.
Illegal immigrants have more protected rights then American people do and the liberals are the ones who gave them those rights.
We, as American’s should go on strike and not be bothered to vote for any candidate, or be bothered to donate money or volunteer our time to help any candidate, weather it be Democratic or Republican and show them how important American’s really are, if these Elective Officials think that illegal immigrants are so important, let them see how important they are when it’s time to vote candidates in to office, that will show them.
I have lost all respect for cops, judges and elective officials and find most of them to be very corrupted and will never trust or support another one ever in the near future.
Law abiding citizens are always getting screwed over by the system and the American people need to wake up and say enough is enough.
The United States of America is nothing more than a big joke, that’s why the world is laughing at us, because we are all so stupid and no one has any respect for stupid people.
This country known as the United States of America is so lucky that I’m not the President of the USA, because if I was I would round up all those god damn illegal immigrants and deport them and place a huge fence around the United States and prevent any illegals from ever setting foot in this country again.

These are my personal opinions and beliefs from my own observations of illegal immigrants in my life.
Thank You.
