The Florida trial for Zimmerman juror: He shouldn't have gotten out of that car he was told by POLICE dispatcher to sit tight, REAK police were on their way.

Reminds me, doesn't Florida Gov. Rick Scott look like some kind of "wacko skin head."

Javier Sanchez, a top aide to Minnesota Republican wacko. Michele Bachmann, has been charged with thefts that police say took place in a House office building.

Stealing from a small business owner, typical of what republican's are doing all over America.

UPDATE: FBI confirms State Treasurer Martha Shoffner's arrest, apparently for official misconduct

Democratic Arkansas Treasurer Martha Shoffner has been arrested for extortion by the Federal Bureau of Investigation and is being held in Pulaski County Jail, the Associated Press reported Saturday.

FBI spokeswoman Kimberly Brunell told the AP that Shoffner was arrested Saturday at her home in Newport and is scheduled for a federal court hearing Monday. Brunell said Shoffner was arrested on charges of "extortion under color of official right."

Shoffner, a former state legislator and second-term treasurer, was arrested at her home in Newport Saturday by FBI agents after a confidential informant had recorded her taking a $6,000 kickback for guiding lucrative state investment business to the informant, a securities salesman who commanded about a third of the state's billion-dollar bond business thanks to his payments to Shoffner. It was continuation of a string of payments to cover rent on Shoffner's Little Rock apartment and followed other alleged smaller gratuities, plus a $4,700 cash contribution to a campaign fund-raising event that the FBI thinks Shoffner pocketed.
Shoffner, serving her second term in office, has faced questions over the past year about the way her office has handled state investments. Legislative auditors last year questioned Shoffner's selling of bonds before they matured, a practice that they said cost the state more than $434,000 worth of earnings.

The sale of the bonds early resulted in a net economic loss, with Arkansas losing earnings it would have made had Shoffner's office held on to the bonds, auditors said. The largest net loss, more than $783,000, came from eight transactions with St. Bernard Financial Services, Inc., a Russellville-based company where Shoffner's office has purchased the bulk of its bonds.

Just another way of reaching into my overly stretched butt hole in hopes taking a few more tax DOLLARS !!
They wont ban these bags but they are sure to attached a "Fee" aka TAX
Its a lot like the $8.00 additional "Fee" you play when purchasing a LCD Screen. They say its a recycling charge but the last I knew there was no redemption centers to get your money back when the stupid thing dies.
I say start dumpling your plastic bags into the ocean. Lets the sea life consume it. Fish love getting stuck in it like a mini-vacation
The O. C. Times, they called him that
'Cause he's not authentic like me.
Yeah, the guy from the O.C. paper
Said he makes druggies feel good
They'll vote for him, and not for me

See, real druggies , liars and thieves like RANKIN
Or me, or informed
Have talked the talk, and walked the walk.
Not come in late and won!


Oh, RANKIN THE MORON lives in O.C.
The O.C. Times, they called him that

'Cause he's moron but not authentically.
Oh, Rankin the Coward lives in O.C.
The O.C. Times, they called him that
'Cause he's slander , but not authentically.
Some say RANKIN. "articulate"
And bright and new and "clean."
The druggies sure loves this guy,
A instigator interloper's dream!
But, when you vote for a FOOL
Watch out, and don't be fooled!
Don't vote the RANKIN THE LIAR in -
'Cause 'cause I won't have nothing after all these years of sacrifice
And I won't get justice. This is about justice. This isn't about me, it's about justice.

Hola Almoranas,
Que classe cabrones?
God wants us all to speak the same damn language, that language is the language of the bible, not the stuff you read in the booking center walls or the toilet stalls but good old english. We got to support the teeparty and the end of all free stuff for everybody what aint got it right, don't act right and smell bad and don't talk like the bible say and what lays down with weird stuff and gets up repentant as that is too late. All emergency rooms must stay open late for conversions and repairs but at cost to thers. Now the folks are equal what is the same, say God, but the folks what are not going along and doing what they sis told are NOT equal. Join the REICHSPUBLIKANS, the Teeaparty is your friend if you are not one of THEM or otherwise different.

Much of the missing water can be attributed to old inaccurate meters, and leakage but an element of the missing water is thought to be theft by persons who are accessing water from public hydrants throughout the city for construction or agricultural purposes.

Penn State University has reached settlements with some of the Sandusky victims totaling about $60 million.

The men now but were children when it happened who claim to have been sexually abused by former assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky.

Still more claims are still pending against the college and Jerry Sandusky. Not to worry Penn State has made and still making Millions so this pay out is not hurting the college at all.

The millions made for the TV rights for it's football and insurance has covered it all.
