What do Chris Christie and Rob Ford have in common? They're Toast

Submitted by Jeff Buster on Sat, 01/11/2014 - 20:25.

 It is inconcievable to me that Gov. Christie was not in the loop.  

Come on.  One of the best "practical jokes" I have ever heard of...

Lane closures to teach the unsupportive mayor.   

Practical jokes don't go undiscussed...that's the fun part...backslapping each other and snorting in laughter about the practical joke. 

We had practical jokes at work - everyone knew about the jokes, including the management.

No buildings higher than two stories, streets are cobblestones. McDonald's had to conform, and their restaurant here (more expensive than US I guess, close to $5 for a Big Mac, although it sells as a combo with fries and soft drink.

Simple sign outside.

 

Inside, the standard counter.

Inside, beauty.

When you live the shopping cart lifestyle, you don't need to remember your front door key when you leave your cart. 

You don't need to worry about rent either.   Just find a park or some public property and your life's belongings are probably going to be alright for a few hours.  

In America you have a lot of options on how to live!

America - land of opportunity

Submitted by Jeff Buster on Sat, 12/14/2013 - 13:20.

In Ohio recycling beer and beverage containers is light work - because in Ohio  aluminum cans are only recovered for their weight as aluminum.  In other states recycling is done to recover the five cent or 10 cent "deposit" per beverage container - whether the container is aluminum or glass.     This means that  the can man's load is a lot heavier out of Ohio than in Ohio.

Aeon Tax Liens Mark Schwartz response to Washington Post story

Submitted by Gone Fishin on Tue, 12/10/2013 - 15:04.

 The thieves want to dump their property on county taxpayers so we can foot the bill for their demolitions AND for the tens of thousands they owe in delinquent property taxes.

The thieves force folks from their homes for delinquent property taxes,  they don't pay their own property taxes, and then expect taxpayers to bail them out after they have made millions here.

Meanwhile, thousands of people have been victimized by these sorry ass thieves, and they LOST THEIR HOMES.
