Curious News

The Jehova's Witness Relocation Program (protection program) is safer than the federal witness protection program at a fraction of the cost. Unlike the federal program, it requires no name change to assure no one recognizes the obituaries of former witnesses.

Prospective clients must agree to relocate to New Orleans (formerly St. Louis) and wear these T-shirts at all times. Rather than providing a job under false identity, the efficient program is privately funded and costs only a fraction of the income it generates. Tithing and church attendance are required, however. Apparently few take these individuals seriously or want to get to know them. Details are sketchy and no details are really available.

Gore says tax pollution, not payrolls (The "Breathing Tax")- NEW YORK (Reuters) - Former U.S. Vice President Al Gore on Monday suggested taxing carbon dioxide emissions instead of employees' pay in a bid to stem global warming. The Gore tax would replace all payroll taxes, including those for Social Security and unemployment compensation, Gore said. He said the overall level of taxation, would remain the same. Gore also claims in: Global Warming an Immediate Crisis , "... that venture capitalists are eager to put money behind effective technologies to cut greenhouse gases. "

What Gore forgets to admit is how much he personally profits from such venture capitalism. He has a financial conflict of interest. In fact, his interest in the recent movie An Inconvenient Truth, could be offset by production costs claimed as advertising/marketing for his investment company, based in London. Shameful, really shameful, but not illegal. Gore also conveniently forgets his new tax would amount to a tax on breathing, as the human respiratory (our lungs) remove carbon dioxide from our bodies as we exhale.

Al, please get an advisor or a non-metallic thinking cap.

Why having 28 times more lawyers than any other country on Earth works for the U.S.: They hold down many jobs for the taxpayers. Moreover, they can apparently handle multiple jobs without even showing up to work (no-show, government jobs). Bryant has been referred to as the "king of double dipping" by a newspaper in southern New Jersey because he collects salaries from four public jobs in New Jersey. Between Byrant, his two brothers, his wife, his son and his sister-in-law, the family holds 10 public jobs in New Jersey and earns almost $700,000.

Lets put more lawyers in Congress (note: requires that they first identify themselves as such). Why elect any?
