    Looks like that mayor is a colered. What gives him the right to be mayor? What the hell is going on here?

  3. Qball says:

    Layoff lazy firefighters and close fire clubhouses down. Use the money to hire more police officers and crime will go down

    There is evidence that several corrupt DoJ, DoD and CIA employees had taken bribes from Al Quida in exchange for information and logistics support during the four years prior to 9/11.

    When one considers that the 9/11 terrorists could take jumbo jet flying lessons, move about the US unobstructed, live for several weeks less than 2 miles from NSA head quarters and be on State Department watch lists, even without the supporting evidence of bribery this makes sense.
