Oh shi...

I found this entry about two differents situation about a same problem and how two goverments deal with it.

Taken from The Daily Mail:

They are both the feckless fathers of a legion of children by many different women.

In Britain, Keith Macdonald is a jobless 25-year-old who has produced up to 15 children by 14 mothers, costing the taxpayer at least £1.5million in benefits.

In America, Howard Veal has fathered 23 children by 14 women, and owes an astonishing $533,000 – that’s £337,000 – in child support payments.

But while their shameless lifestyles may be equally unappealing, there is one thing that separates them.

As Macdonald continues to live an easy, workless life in Britain, his American counterpart is beginning a four-year prison sentence for failing to support his offspring.

In an impassioned outburst unlikely to be heard from a British judge, Veal was told he was an ‘insult to every responsible father who sacrifices to provide for their children’ by Michigan judge Denis Lieber.

Branding 44-year-old Veal a ‘poster child for irresponsibility’, Judge Lieber added: ‘Animals procreate, human beings are supposed to nurture their children. When you create a human being, I think you have a fundamental responsibility to provide for that child with necessities like food, clothing and shelter.’
The judge was so appalled that he far exceeded the sentencing guidelines, which called for Veal, from Muskegon, Michigan, to receive no more than six months in the county jail.

In Britain, Macdonald has eight children with another two on the way, all by different mothers. Since his story emerged last week, however, other women have come forward to claim he has up to 15 children.

He receives incapacity benefit for a bad back of up to £68.95 plus £44 a week for income support. He rarely works and contributes just £5 a week to support each child.

Unlike Veal, he has not been pursued for missing his child support payments. But their cases are very similar in other respects.
Like Macdonald, Veal has barely worked over the years, instead choosing to live largely on benefits. When he had a job for a few months last year, some money was taken from his wage to pay for his children, but it barely made a dent in what he owed.

His jailing followed a guilty plea he made in July to owing Sherri Black, the mother of two of his children, more than $60,000 (£38,000) in child support.
In seven years, Veal had paid just $87.75 (£55) for the two children, now aged 16 and 11.
Like Macdonald, Veal told the court he was contributing money from his unemployment benefit and had never refused to pay.

However, Mitchell Wood, Michigan’s assistant attorney general, had recommended that Veal’s behaviour justified a jail sentence because he was unlikely ever to make substantial inroads into what he owes, especially as there remain 14 outstanding cases against him.

In Britain, parents who refuse to pay can be jailed for up to six weeks, although they can get out as soon as they hand over the money.

The Child Support Agency, which stresses that the measure is a ‘last resort’, says that between November 2008 and October 2009, 800 offenders were given immediate or suspended prison sentences.

The CSA – which does not need to receive a complaint over non-payment to take action – can also confiscate the non-payer’s cars and motorbikes, take away his driving licence and remove money directly from his bank account.

However, the agency has been dogged by complaints about long delays, errors and failing to take action against offenders.

In 2006, the National Audit Office found that the CSA was spending 70p collecting every £1 of child maintenance from absent parents.

A House of Commons report last year warned that the cases of 275,000 parents waiting for child maintenance remain stuck in the CSA’s inadequate computer system.

Next year, responsibility for collecting child support will be transferred to the new Child Maintenance Enforcement Commission.

In the U.S., parents face fines and property confiscation and can even have their passport withheld along with their driving licence.

They can also be jailed for up to six months, although – as in Veal’s case – this is only a guideline.

Critics of the U.S. system say jailing non-payers only adds to the state’s burden. Sherri Black agreed, saying: ‘I’m pleased he’s been jailed but I’d rather have him pay the money. Now my taxes will go to support him in prison.’

Last night Norman Wells, of Family and Youth Concern, said: ‘Whether or not a prison sentence is the most appropriate sanction, there can be little doubt that we are far too complacent about feckless fathers in the UK.

‘We need to send out a clear message that fathers are far more than sperm donors and make them take proper responsibility for the children they have a part in bringing into the world.’

Guess what? He choose you

America! Fuck yeah!

An AK-47 assault rifle (over 1,000 of which we...

WANT!  Wikipedia

According to Associated Press:

SANFORD, Fla. — A Florida car dealership trying to drum up business is offering an unusual perk for potential used-truck buyers: A free AK-47 assault rifle.

General sales manager Nick Ginetta says that since the promotion was announced on Veterans Day, business has more than doubled at Nations Trucks in Sanford.

Customers would have to pass a background check before using the $400 gun shop voucher. They also have the option of using the money toward other firearms, or they can request a check in that amount instead.

The dealership has fielded some complaints about the deal, which Ginetta acknowledges is controversial. But, he adds: "My buyer is absolutely a gun owner, no question."

The promotion runs through the end of November.

Must hurry up, bros, if you want your AK-47 along with your truck.

No shit!

Image by Mark Prince,, 2006, ri...A glorious view. WikipediaTaken shamelessly from Reuters:

A Brooklyn coffee shop is offering customers a real jolt: 10 shots of espresso in a single serving with the nickname "porn in a cup." 

The Pulp & The Bean in the Crown Heights neighborhood put the item on the menu on Tuesday with the official name of "Dieci," Italian for "10." The nickname comes from a sign advertising the drink outside the store, whose specialty item was first reported by the New York Daily News.

Shop owner Tony Fisher, 37, said sales were brisk in part because "nobody's ever had the chutzpah to do anything like this before."

"This is for the person who wants to experience the limits of where coffee and espresso can go," he said of the drink, which weighs in at 20 ounces.

Fisher opened his shop specializing in latte coffee and chai tea about a year ago in a neighborhood that has traditionally been split between Orthodox Jews and Caribbean immigrants but has seen an influx of young professionals and gays who make up the bulk of his clientele.

Fisher came up with the idea after finding that a double espresso was not enough.
"Sometimes I'll drink a double espresso and say to myself, 'I need another double.' And then another double will turn into another double. And I was like, why not drink a full cup?"

The beverage is not for everyone, especially considering such a large dose of caffeine can increase heart rate and blood pressure.

"I won't sell it to anybody in their 40s and up," Fisher said. "I'll just tell them I can offer an alternative."

Burger King being Burger King

A close up shot of the Buck Double, a cheesebu...Yummy WikipediaWhat do you expect from a fast food parlor? More or less this:

Sacramento, Nov 18 (THAINDIAN NEWS) A man was stunned to the core when he had a “F*** you” instead of the usual “Thank you” on his Burger King. The degrading words did appear twice on the bill and the man, Francisco Perez expressed his disgust for those words.
Perez went to the Sacramento drive thru for the cheeseburger and ended up spending some $9.22 on food and drinks at the eatery. He realized that something was wrong when he saw the words “F*** you’ at where the customer number should have been. Perez revealed later that he was embarrassed by the whole episode and claimed that he did nothing to provoke the workers at the place.
A rep of Burger King called Perez on late Wednesday and offered him vouchers for free food at their various restaurants. Perez however indicated that he refused the gesture. He indicated that he might not eat at the Burger King again and was considering taking legal action against the restaurant for the humiliation. He did not indicate if the company acknowledged responsibility for the incident. It seems the company believes that the incident was caused by group of employees.
Burger King has dismissed several of its staff for the incident.
Enjoy teh whopper, faggits X)

Finishing your pain right to the root

Not anymore my friend :(
According to the newspaper To Vima (The Tribune) a month ago The Greece's largest health insurance provider announced, in a letter to a diabetes foundation, that they would no longer pay for the special footwear that diabetics need for reducing pain, but they suggested that they would pay instead for amputation, which is less expensive.
That was fucking generous of them.
The decision, which the foundation said is not supported by the international scientific literature, was published in the prominent Athens aforementioned newspaper and reported by the U.S. news site the October 11 of this Year of the Lord 2010.

I gunna sold ya mah baybee

HOLLY HILL, FL - MAY 22:  Mary Jenkins mops up...Funny Shit BroAccording to Reuters, and I quote:
MIAMI (Reuters) - A Florida woman was charged with trying to sell her infant son in order to pay for a new car, police said Tuesday.
The baby's grandmother brokered the deal and initially demanded $75,000 but agreed to cut the price to $30,000 when told the prospective buyer could not get a bank loan, the Florida Department of Law Enforcement (FDLE) said.
The mother of the eight-week-old boy, Stephanie Bigbee Fleming, 22, of Bradenton, Florida, was to receive $9,000 of the proceeds, the FDLE said.
"Fleming planned to purchase a new vehicle from the money received," an FDLE spokeswoman said.
Fleming also needed money to pay court costs for an unrelated probation violation, the arrest documents said.
Fleming was arrested Tuesday. The grandmother, Patty Bigbee, 45, was arrested last week with her boyfriend Lawrence Works, 42, both of Holly Hill, Florida. All three were charged with the illegal sale of a child, and Bigbee was also charged with communications fraud, the department said.
The arrest report said Bigbee offered to sell the baby to a female relative in October, explaining she had been caring for her grandchild but "was not mother material."
Herpa Derpa
The relative alerted police and worked with them during the negotiations. Bigbee and Works were arrested when they collected a $30,000 cashier's check and handed over the baby to an undercover agent in a Daytona Beach parking lot, police said.
The baby remains in state custody.
