tell them to move out of the United States and go do their business with

This is brilliant; I'm outraged, but I don't actually care enough to lose any money over it.

Comment: Once again The Black man has to suffer due to the white business
owner having the law on their side. This man assumed the ring was probably
stolen since a Black man was with a white woman. She has cancer and i am
basically her health care provider. I go to the store for her with her
debit and food stamp cards. I clean house for her. I keep her out of harms
way. I try to not let her get caught up up undue harassment and persons
taking advantage of her by persons and businesses like Mr A. Cash Pawn
shop. I wonder how many others he has done this to? They probably won't
come forward because they might have gotten the merchandise in guestion by
thievery or just didn't want it any longer.
The only reason she needed the money from a pawn shop was s other lights
and electric wouldn't get shut off and not allowing her to have access to
machinery needed for her illness.

I am to assume you have finished with your investigation. This is not
going away. I shall seek a higher power. Someone will believe this black
oppressed man. It is appalling that one has to still be considered a lower
than human personae and the word of the "land baron is recognized over the
lowly just freed slave trying to make a living in his world.

II thank you for your timely response. I can assume your investigating
officer was satisfied with hearing the side of the business owner against
a black man. It would seem both sides would get a chance to voice their
opinion. If he was not at wrong, WHY OFFER US ANOTHER RING OF LESSER VALUE
AND WANT US TO BE STUPID ENOUGH TO PAY 300.00 FOR IT. HE SEEMED SCARED, AS
IF HE WAS GLAD THE CAMERA WAS ROLLING, AND AS IF HE WANTED OR WAS LOOKING
FOR ME TO STRIKE HIM. HE WAS BEEF RED IN THE FACE AS HE WAS MAKING THIS
STUPID DEAL. I AM AN EDUCATED MAN AND IT WAS INSULTING FOR HIM TO ASSUME i
WAS SOME DUMB UNEDUCATED INDIVIDUAL.

SHOULD YOU NOT WANT TO PERSUE THIS FUTHER, CAN YOU DIRECT ME TO AN AGENCY
THAT WILL HELP ME?

Thank you

The Florida Pawnbroking Act.

FSS. 539.001 (10) PLEDGED GOODS NOT REDEEMED.--Pledged goods not redeemed
by the pledgor on or before the maturity date of a pawn must be held by
the pawnbroker for at least 30 days following such date or until the next
business day, if the 30th day is not a business day. Pledged goods not
redeemed within the 30-day period following the maturity date of a pawn
are automatically forfeited to the pawnbroker; absolute right, title, and
interest in and to the goods shall vest in and shall be deemed conveyed to
the pawnbroker by operation of law; and no further notice is necessary. A
pledgor has no obligation to redeem pledged goods or make any payment on a
pawn

The gift card has already been paid for, so her declining to use it would only benefit Publix.

Comment:
I was sent your commentary on the greyhound in England that is "adopting"
the rehabilitation center's wild animals thinking I would love it. But
after 30 years doing wildlife rehabilitation all I can say is what the
heck do these people think they are doing. Acclimating wild animals to a
dog is the absolute no no in wildlife rehab. Just think if and when they
put these animals back into the wild they will think dogs are great and
when the next dog comes along that isn't so "friendly" that rabbit or deer
or fox will be history. But it is a typical Walt Disney type cute story.

Comment: I recently got an email which quoted this article and finished by
bashing President Obama.

The article was represented as being an accurate statement from Mr.
Iaccocca, however, upon investigation I found many inserted words directed
at the present administration.

Although every American is entitled to their opinion I find it more than
frustrating that representing someone else's opinion as theirs and
misquoting to fit the context of their adjenda is acceptable.

How can this crap be stopped. Should we allow any idiot to misquote
anybody and the stupid to believe this crap.

Or should we think more about the well being of this country of ours and
be careful of the opinions of retired wantabees that could be misquoted
and misdirected because of political agendas.

I have never liked politics and I guess I never will but I do value a
person's word until proven otherwise.

I am labled as arrogant and stuborn, but, those who claim to be American
Patriots are doing their best to ruin this country by misdirecting those
who will believe anything.

I am truly ashamed of the email that was sent to me and I can only wish
that others will see the light at the end of the tunnel. It is all about
selling a damn book and has no bearing on trying to be part of the
solution.

In closing, all of the items mentioned in the article have been set in
motion since the beginning of American Politics.
Both parties have had their hands soiled by greed and "The American Way".
But in no way can all of this be laid on the doorstop of our new President
who is trying to fight the impossible fight.

In our current day, The Republican Party, who for eight years festered the
current infection (from Wall Street to the Health Care Industry), is now
content with subversion.

Have we all forgotten what subversion is??????????????

Rogersbut Ill tell ya something you should have added. The MOVie STARS of
yesteryear had more patriotrism, honesty,honor and intelligence about the
world than almost any of the current day wussies, punks and spout
mouths....Just venting a bit. We need to let congress swim to europe and
most of the so called stars swim to china with hero Mao.

Indeed. Nothing shouts "I'm a patriot" louder than being conscripted into the armed forces and spending the war in an entertainment unit.

Comment: It truely amazes me that you people consider the imigration issue
in this country to irrelevant, out dated, eronious, etc. How is it
irrelevant, that people break the law coming into this country illegally
and are not prosecuted? How is it irrelevant that a great many of these
people have no desire to truely become a part of this country, learning
its language, respecting its culture, constitution, laws, beleifs, or
flag? How is it irrevelant that they recieve free health care when many of
us ( born citizens ) can not afford insurance? How is it irrelevant that
they recieve subsidies from the government when they have paid nothing in,
after we have paid in all of our lives? And don't say they don't, because
it is a fact taht they actually do. How is it irelevant that all they have
to do to keep from being sent home is to have a baby in this country, at
OUR expense? Do you people know the meaning of "irrelevant"?

Comment: Who is inserting advertisements in the middle of Aripio's letter
to Al Sharpton? Is this an attempt to interfer with Ari[io's message? He
has the right to make his point, without interference, like any other
American and as an Arizona resident I have to right to read what written
communications is provided. I strongly disagree with outside interlopers
trying to influemce the issue of immigration in Arizona.

Comment: ACLU and removing crosses from military cemeteries. I was
interested in your response to this latest e-mail. I do have a comment.I
am now 69 years old and a disabled veteran. In my life time I have seen
the ACLU become the most dangerious organization in the US that seeks to
undermine my freedoms. I might also say that the NRA isn't far behind.

Comment: I am not surprised about the presidents approval rating, he is a
publicity hound not one day has gone by that he does not have his face on
TV for interviews covers of magazines, so when does he hve time to
work???? Its not the republicans, its him, he is too busy trying to be
famous. This man needs to start over, the banks are our worst enemies,
they will kill the american spirit. 1% interest on savings why sve, 25%
to 30% interest on credit cards, they should regulate,the banks by not
allowing them to charge ore then 10% over the rate they pay the federal
reserve, IE 2% federal reserve 12% on credit cards, this will help the
buying power of the people. Also they banks would not have to charge such
interest on credit cards if there higher people like president , manager,
CEO did not make millions. This man needs to get focused, the senate has
not done anything but give themselves raises while denying it to the SSA
recipients, Retirees, and Federal Employees. Give me a break, something
needs to be done.
One last thought, all employees need time in service to get pensions, yet
the senate and congress get their full pensions even is only 2 years in
office, this is wrong, they are federal employees just like the mailman on
the street. Thats why the government has so much debt

Heaven forbid the POTUS should actually communicate with (or be accessible to) the citizenry of the U.S.
