The incompetence comes that they should have been sent to the shredder over the trash bin, not that they were never cashed. The city would never let people not pay a bill because they never cashed the check. The bill is not paid until the check clears and if no one cashed the check the bill was recorded as not paid in time and late fees are added.
If one sends the city a check even a large bank for 57K and the money is never withdrawn from the account, they would be contacting the city to wonder if the check was lost in the mail. Even the person who paid $50 would be contacting the city about the missing payment.
No, the incompetence comes in reading comprehension. The checks were found in the dumpster still in their unopened sealed envelops. So they could not have been scanned or processed.
Probably part of their program to force businesses to pay late fees and penalties under the claim they didn't pay on time. Most likely a state employee goofing off realized they had fallen behind during Christmas holidays in processing work and tossed them to hide the evidence knowing they would get rebilled later.

Just how is he going to check if someone in line to buy a thousand dollars worth of tools is gay. It is not like the color of skin or the pink star the fuhrer made them on their chest. Random hate is the worst kind of hate and no where near bible country.
Their breath will smell like poo from eating poo-peanuts.
Easy, you make them wear a rainbow colored star on their shirt.
Sorry bud, you can't spot all gays but there are quite a few that there is NO question about their orientation.

Just a run of the mill nematodes and a yuppy who thinks fish is created already in the Styrofoam trays. Blame the store for the likely wild caught fish for having parasites. Live parasites That added to the freshness. At least the fish was not twitching like the other viral video of the twitching slab of beef. When they cooked it all the other parasites deep in the flesh would have woke up after being in the cold and started to come out until they died in the frying pan.
i really don't see why this is a story some fish have parasites if the store notices they wont sell it and if they miss it they will happily replace it ive known several people that would have just cooked it a bit more and still eaten it
Parasites cooked are just extra added protein, but they should have been labelled as an extra ingredient. You don't want to upset the FDA.
This is common for meat cut from around the belly & above. Soak the filet in salt water & they come out on their own. you know they lay eggs too.
just extra mitamins and vinerals!!

You missed the Sarc tag. Space X is the free market owned by Elon Musk not NASA owned by the US government and taxpayers.
Who pays the bill when Space-X sends a rocket up for NASA ?
The American Taxpayers, that's who !! Why's that so hard to figure out ?

If the baby is not Dakota’s, that could be a reason why the marriage was called off.

From what he has said before is that government has no business in the marriage business.

What was the passage she use when talking about arson and the causes of it. Something about burning the unbeliever in fire. Oh wait that is in the Koran, well it might be in Deuteronomy but no one really pays attention to that book of the bible after burning witches was ended.

Just how did they find out that it was paint. It could have been a mutation to make it look pink If someone did paint it they had to make one big cloud of paint to get all that coverage from head to tail when it was all stretched out fleeing and not in a ball rattling.

Very unlike a morning after pill would do anything on a baby that is at term. All the morning after pill is just a large dose of what is in standard birth control pills. It stops implantation but does nothing if already implanted hence the name morning after. You only have a window of a few days or the morning after to stop a federalized egg from implanting. There are no OTC pills that would cause the baby to die in the womb when at term or they would be no such thing as partial birth abortion. Why bother with the stabbing the neck of a baby half in half out if they could have given a pill to the mother and have it die to be born as a still born.

Dead cops will not change the law. If it was really the Gestapo this farmer would just go missing along with his cash. Kill some cops and they will either turn into the Gestapo or they will all quit and there would be no cops when this guy or you need them as some mob robbed you of your property.
All I would need is the morgue. I have more than enough ammunition to take care of a mob.
you watch too many war movies. The Nazi state police killed in the open. They came and got you in the early am and killed you. Then they posted your name and the reason you were killed. They only made High ranking officials dis appear. .
While it is true, dead cops won't change the law, enough dead cops would make them think twice about stealing property from travelers

One can only buy “tractor parts” with large sums of cash, just like drugs. No plastic or check allowed and there is no ATM or check cashiers in all of Montana. What would he have done if the “girl” he was going to meet was really few guys who robbed him of the 16k cash and his vehicle. He would have a hard time explaining to the cops the story of have 16K in cash for “tractor parts” when crossing state lines for a “date”.
Last I heard,cash was legal tender. Plastic or checks are not suitable replacements.
yeah, something fishy about the guy's story but the asset seizure laws are still out of line.
Stupid and hard to explain are not the same as illegal. Tell me what he did that was actually and provably illegal. I'll wait.
Obviously you don't have much experience in rural parts of America. Farmers and blue collar workers all over this land, trade and do business with CASH MONEY. In THIS COUNTRY, having cash, no matter how much, is not supposed to be probable cause for seizure. Using cash is a way of doing business in rural America and it's perfectly legal to do so.

How does this compare to the next story over of the “homeless” guy with $800 in his pocket. He was not hungry he was just cheep and being eoc-friendly by removing the stuff that should not have gone in the trash but the compost bin or something.

What about this tweet that the pressure cooker and propane tank were related to a food truck.
Or it could come out the child was sick and she couldn't afford to go to the Dr. Not condoning just a possibility....when I hit hard times I had to weight every dollar....she may have been in the same spot.

Which is it. Were they looking for the person who had the most need of a handicap modified house or just a vet needing a house regardless if he really needed a custom house just a house. He won the lottery over being carefully selected based on need.
No one was going over to help lift the wood when they saw it so he had to do it himself. What would the response be if instead of the neighbor spying they went over and asked if he needed help using that wood or doing yard work. From the time he got the house until the day he died he was never allowed to do anything for himself or something. If there is no one to help him, he has to walk if he could or he would become a shut in never leave his house.
How do you know people didn't offer to help and he ran them off like he did reporters?
It sounds like many people were there to help him. I mean they Gave him a house?
How can you be selectively paralyzed and walk if you really want to?
I can't excuse what he did.

Next time that police call alarm goes off no one will respond. A unmarked car may drive by but not blow cover to investigate.
they shouldn't be responding with unmarked, non uniformed officers in the first place

Nothing says to be responsible then tossing a few thousand dollars of both the console and the now useless games into the trash.How about putting a padlock on the CD trays, lock on the plugs or even the put all the CD;s of the games on a chain with a padlock and hang them in the kitchen until he gets better grades. Is he going to make him smash the TV that he will now just watch as he is not playing anything on it.

The best kick would be that Target sues her for copyright infringement. As they will have been smart enough to get the copyright for the design before they started to sell it.

Not really a logistical mistake, the person(s) at the warehouse who was to receive the bananas and drugs before they went to the stores was sick or in jail the day it arrived. It has to be a mistake as the German customs would never admit they made the mistake and not having a drug dog smell every shipment from Colombia or other drug and banana exporting country.
 May 5, 2015 at 6:52pm
And the person in Germany that was to receive the shipment.
