The below is an excerpt [from here]

The most obvious question that a person would ask after hearing the report of the mass arrest of Orthodox rabbis: What kind of religious community is this Orthodox Jewish community in which its leaders are venal crooks who engage in serious criminal activity as easily as one drinks a glass of water?

"These rings, led by clergymen, cloaked their extensive criminal activities behind a facade of rectitude," New Jersey District Attorney Ralph Marra said, describing a disgraceful picture of religious leaders heading money-laundering crews and acting as crime bosses. They moved "at least tens of millions of dollars through charitable, nonprofit entities controlled by rabbis in New York and New Jersey," Marra said. Exactly where the "tens of millions of dollars" came from has not been explained, but connections to the illegal drug trade and the Madoff scam are both very likely.

"Crime Boss" Shaul J. Kassin, 87, chief rabbi of the Syrian Jewish community

"Religious leaders allegedly acted like 'crime bosses'", was the Marra quote that became the title of a July 26 article in the Israeli newspaper Ha'aretz. "For these defendants, corruption was a way of life."

Dear Obama Letter

[click here] for text of letter

Scroll down in [this post] for the text of a letter I mailed to US President George W. Bush 9-15-01. I was attacked on my property 10-11-01. I then received a year in prison for pepper spraying a would be mugger. The mugger was given immunity to prosecute me as self-defense is not legal in Connecticut.

There is more to that story [here]

Concord, New Hampshire, July 2

I posted a link to this post on the Stark Raving Viking blog [here]

The Concord New Hampshire State House

I like New Hampshire. In Connecticut police officers would often be posted outside of town halls to prevent me from being quoted in newspapers during town hall meetings and I could even be pulled over for walking in the Capitol Building. [video]

This is why I like New Hampshire and Vermont much better in Connecticut, [this] is what Connecticut is about.

Interesting museum, but it is somewhat small and there is no abundance of what can be seen.

I liked the stage coach. It seats 9 passenger, and it could make one daydream of what life was like back then. There is a belt that can be undone, that is also the seat backing for the middle row of seats, that allows the 3rd row passengers access to their seats.

The 2nd floor of the museum seems to be dedicated to cooking, kitchens, and various cook devices. The 3rd floor allows you to view the surrounding buildings and landscape, it is dedicated to firefighting.

Surveyors used chains and some of these implements.

This furniture store has there leather and wood items handcrafted in Thetford, Vermont. Some items can be considered pricey, but what you can find made with wood, leather, and other materials may not be found elsewhere.
