Awesome job citizens! At least somewhere people are doing the right thing. Why weren't there positive comments when the Pittsfield Police and Massachusetts State Police arrested the purse snatcher at Wendy's? All most people said was ... "Isn't there any real crime to fight?" or "Did it take ALL of those cops?". Oh well...

I know the loser claims they were "out of this world" I guess in his world stealing from a helpless old lady is acceptable. I would have slapped him around a little. it would have at least required seven to ten stitches to seal his forehead back up.

if it happens on their property they are liable even though they caught him the store would have to dog him for reimbursement if that's the way they choose to go they might not though...

Not to belittle the incident, but I find it amusing, the amount of public out cry over this, and the atrocities people would bestow upon the perpetrator. Yet when our government STEALS from us all, including old folks, the same morons re elect the same thieves over and over perpetually rewarding them for their actions.

Windfall Tax on Retirement Income

Adding a tax to your retirement is simply another way of saying to the American people, you're so darn stupid that we're going to keep doing this until we drain every cent from you. That's what the Speaker of the House is saying.. Read below..........

Nancy Pelosi wants a Windfall Tax on Retirement Income. In other words tax what you have made by investing toward your retirement. This woman is a nut case! You aren't going to believe this.

Madam speaker Nancy Pelosi wants to put a Windfall Tax on all stock market profits ( including Retirement fund, 401K and Mutual Funds! Alas , it is true - all to help the 12 Million Illegal Immigrants and other unemployed Minorities!)

This woman is frightening.
She quotes...' We need to work toward the goal of equalizing income,(didn't Marx say something like this?), in our country and at the same time limiting the amount the rich can invest.'(I am not rich, are you?)

When asked how these new tax dollars would be spent, she replied:
'We need to raise the standard of living of our poor, unemployed and minorities. For example, we have an estimated 12 million illegal immigrants in our country who need our help along with millions of unemployed minorities. Stock market windfall profits taxes could go a long way to guarantee these people the standard of living they would like to have as 'Americans'.' ;(Read that quote again and again and let it sink in.)'Lower your retirement, give it to others who have not worked as you have for it'.

Yet in two years, you'll all vote back the same idiots, and in two years from then, the same Democrat idiots again. Because they extract the money with a legal form through the mail everyone thinks it's okay. Maybe if the IRS came and dragged the money from the purses of old ladies down their front stairs and into the streets people would wake up and take notice and do something.

It's pathetic.
