The Seedy Chinese Continue to Steal Secrets

pO157.

The Chinese, rather than actually doing the work themselves, continue to try to build their country on stolen goods and industrial espionage. The FBI announced the results of a massive case that could cost the US millions in agribusiness. The case began after seed company security people noticed unusual activity of Chinese spies digging around in the dirt in their test fields.  The plot included the wife of a large Chinese seed conglomerate.

Below Average student Brooke Kimbrough blamed her rejection from the University of Michigan on the fact that she is black. Below Average student Brooke Kimbrough decided to do something about it: by holding a press conference and rally at the campus. Below Average student Brooke Kimbrough is also threatening to publish rejection letters sent to other minority students, or some damn thing, until her demands to be including in the upcoming freshman class are granted. Below Average student Brooke Kimbrough claimed she has a 3.6 GPA and a 23 out of 36 on the ACT test; the average U of Michigan accepted student has a 3.85 and a 29 to 33 out of 36 - however, the college is somehow racist. Below Average student Brooke Kimbrough then compared applying to college to leaving a plantation or something like that.

The ebola virus has spread to several countries in Africa, including the capital of Guinea and has killed scores. Experts say that the strain that is currently active is Ebola Zaire, the deadliest of all of them. European nations (especially France) are on alert because the former colonies in Africa have numerous flights a day to Europe.

Group: New York festering cesspool of big government, crushing taxes

pO157.

Posted to Politics on Fri Mar 21, 2014 at 01:50:15 PM EST (promoted by port1080). RSS.

Some organization did an analysis of the tax burden from state and local government in all 50 states plus the District of Columbia and found that the dystopian shithole of New York State was the absolute worst place to be in the entire United States. The average New York taxpayer forks out $9,718 a year in state and local taxes to the corrupt goliath that is the Empire State. Governor Cuomo did not comment on this report, as he was spending his time passing bullshit anti-gun rights bills which do not impact his inner circle, even when they brandish at Swedish diplomats in the executive bunker or some damn thing.

When you find out the girl you sat next to in high school Driver's Ed class became a teacher and subsequently became incarcerated for alleged sex offences against once of her students. Anyone else know any notorious criminals?

Freedom costs a <strike>a buck o five<strike> $24. (Except on tuesday, then it's free)

The 9/11 Memorial Museum in New York City will open in a few months. It will feature 23,000 pictures, 10,000+ artifacts and about 2,000 oral histories of the dead. It will also have a $24 admission fee which museum officials state is to ensure that the museum is around for 50 or 100 years. Some of the survivors and family members (who get in for free anyway) say that the fee is outrageous and detracts from the event that is to be remembered by overly commercializing it. Others say that if people can afford to visit New York City they can afford to pay $24 to get into the museum. The organizers say that if the Federal Government cannot pay any aid then the fee must be in place to support their $63 million annual budget. Admission is free on Tuesdays and to people under 5 years.

[For Profit] Private College = Disasters for Students?

pO157.

Posted to Business on Sun Jan 26, 2014 at 12:21:21 PM EST (promoted by port1080). RSS.

Jaqueta Cherry was a high school dropout who got a GED. Once she achieved that basic educational accomplishment she began receiving numerous advertisements for private, for profit, colleges. Unfortunately, she failed out multiple times after taking out thousands in federal student loans and never passed a single class. She is now in debt and stuck in the same dead end job now worse off. This is due to the fact that many private colleges charge outrageous student tuition which is backed by the federal government Pell Grant program and federal student loans.

MOBBED UP FAT GOVERNOR OUT OF CONTROL; FAT!!!

The Christie bridge controversy, in which traffic was intentionally snarled through a town whose mayor refused to endorse him, has become worse. Governor Christie (R-Weight Watchers) declared that he has done some soul searching after blaming the incident on overzealous staffers or something. The traffic snarl delayed ambulance responses to critically injured and sick patients and prevented people from getting to their jobs or schools on time. The Governor initially denied all knowledge of the reason for this incident then the e-mails came out where staffers stated about how it was "Time for some traffic problems in Fort Lee."

Meanwhile, Governor Christie has signed a law giving discounted in state college tuition to illegal immigrants. He later stated the job of the government was to maximize investment in these people.

Police in Lockport, NY OUT OF CONTROL!

Posted to Legal on Mon Nov 04, 2013 at 09:36:43 AM EST (promoted from Diaries by port1080). RSS.

Police in Lockport, NY searched a car after the driver was pulled over for speeding. The driver had a legal gun permit but had a handgun with 10 rounds of ammo in the magazine. NY State's "SAFE" Act requires that guns bear no more than 7 rounds. The driver was jailed. In New York State possessing a handgun with 8 or more rounds of ammunition in it is treated worse than Criminally Negligent Homicide.

Taxman tells residents to FLEE IN PANIC! Residents don't want to.

The area of Sapelo Island off the coast of Georgia is 97% owned by the government but has a population of about 47 in a small section known as "Hog Hammock." The people that live there receive few services from the government. No fire, no police, no hospitals, no doctors, no post office. There is a local trash compactor, a general store and a bar. That's about it.  The people that live there are mainly descendants of slaves and have lived in the area for generations. Now due to a few mainlanders moving in, tax assessments have gone up 600% and the people who have been there for longer than anyone can remember are on the verge of being priced out of their ancestral homes.

The citizens are rioting because they support deposed leader Mohamed Morsy's rule. At least 580 people are dead in serious clashes that have sent soldiers into the streets and caused machine gun fire to ring out throughout the city of Cairo.
