HOW CAN YOU NOT LOVE A STORY LIKE THIS,? I ASK YOU,.........MY FELLOW AMERICANS,..?

Look at what theyre doing ,..theyve taken away the means of employment we needed,.... to create a future for,..ourselves ,. the country, theyve out sourced manufacturing,..and alot of other jobs,.. to teach us a lesson on ,...whos the boss,..

tell me,.if we dont have anything to offer the world,.what can they buy from us ,.what money will we make? the answer is none,..

they still own the companys, and they still poluting the enviorment to some degree,...but they arent putting any money back into the comunity,.the lions share of the profits are going offshore ,.or in a swiss bank account,.in thier names

newsday doesnt tell us the facts,..they side step issues, conviently and on purpose,.( is that treason,..?) they hypnotise us with the retoric and storys about bad people smuggling somebodys aquariem fsh across the border into canada trying to make some money,..and side step the truths that govern our lives,...

meanwhile they never gave us a reembursement for the vietnam war,..we mess up,..? we pay fines,... or do jailtime,..

they mess up,.( the so called leaders who've bought thier way into office while those who should lead are left unnoticed ) Well,....you see,....they had reasons,.if we dont agree with thier reasons and they do it anyway,..thats treason ,.....plain,. and simple,.make no mistake about it,..its as real as a knife at the throat of our country,...and egsistance,..

they wont allow wage incresses ,. congress,..this is documented ,...but at the same time,.. and in the same bill,..they demand a cost of living incress for themselves,..

they wont mention the heart and soul of americas being attacked by the brainwashing propaganda from hollywood,..but they'll pump you up all day about how to incress your neighbors bills by asking more for less in return,..

they hated hippys,...and still do,..the hippys are the ones who said wait a minute,..your working for the people,.and I'm one of them,..you cant get away with that ,..were gonna stop you and this proped up war, one designed to make texans who make munitions rich, at the cost of every other american,..

we're being run by people who've created an unfair advantage, at the expence to every other person in america,..for thier own benifit, and to the disadvantage to every other human being in the country,..

it's time for a change people,.prepare for the worst

Hey Newsjunk what about the pictures that Corsaro gave you ? Can this paper ever get it right ? How a picture to tell the story.

Cablevision and you make a perfect match. There went The Wiz and here goes Newsday. Finally.

This is the kind of scum that gives the entire aquarium industry a black eye. Asian Arowanas are CITES Red-Listed, but are available LEAGALLY from breeders and licensed exporters. The legal fish are individually "chipped" and can be identified. Someone who would bypass the legal fish in order to acquire illegal specimens it just a total jerk.

I hope they throw the book at him.

What a pair of DUMMIES! They should have known better than to try this stunt themselves.... they're Americans.... and as such they were targeted by our own government.... they should have given these fish to some Mexicans... they would have gotten them accross the border without a problem!

They bought the fish legally in Canada and tried to bring them back to make a buck, illegal? OK. Scum? a little drastic. They attempted to circumvent Big Brother's regulatory stranglehold...hardly public enemy 1 and 2.

"Corsaro provided Newsday with a photo of the four fish". And Newsday isn't going to show it because?????

This incident is the obvious reason for high oil prices and probably even the turmoil in the middle east. These fiends deserve the $250,000 & five years imprisonment per fish smuggling charge.

I'd love to be a fly on the wall of their prison cell.

If these fish were dangerous or poisenous than I could understand. Remember what happened in Maryland with the snakehead fish people were releasing into lakes and they were eating everything that was native. If there is a danger to the ecological system then those fish need to be confiscated.. However, I do not believe the two men need to be treated like mass murderers.. Give them a fine and send them on their way.

You are either taking not enough medication or too much. Better stop calling me baby-otherwise I will sue you for sexual harrassement...at least there will be some sex in your lonely life. You've got major issues...perhaps you're the dumbest criminal.
