Image
FIRST MATCHMAKER IN NATION TO OFFER POLITICAL DATING
NEW YORK: President Trump is “Making America Date Again” as couples who share the same opinions about the controversial president are 250 percent more likely to stay together, a relationship expert has found. The Presidential Campaign is underway, and some couples are strengthening bonds over their desire for the President to get re-elected.

Only 20 percent of those surveyed would date someone who is of the opposite political persuasion, while 65 percent of singles want a partner who shares their love (or disdain) for the President.

CORRUPT NYPD 108TH HAS ALLOWED HUNTERS POINT SOUTH TO BECOME A CRIME RIDDEN WAR ZONE

Image
I am done with playing around with the NYPD 108th precinct here in Hunters Point South. They are a bunch of corrupt cops who refuse to do their job who have allowed our neighborhood to turn into a dangerous crime ridden war zone.
For months the 108th has refused to enforce any law. While the rest of the city is on a slow down, the NYPD 108th is on a complete work stoppage. They witness crimes right in front of them and refuse to do anything. Residents are outside pleading with them to make arrests, to do something and they just refuse.

Let's give some examples. Fireworks for over 5 weeks now. As you can see from the above photo, our neighborhood is being blown up every night. The cops witnessed these thugs setting off bomb after bomb and did nothing. These thugs lit the park on fire and the NYPD 108th did nothing. The cops have sat in their cars watched people spray graffiti everywhere and refuse to make a arrest. Hundreds of thugs in the park at night, a park which is supposed t…

Maribel, hails from Honduras, where her early love for confections was evident as she began selling candies to her neighbors at the tender age of 8. However, living with her mother and grandmother, who were both seamstresses, led her to pursue a career in fashion-arriving in the US at 17 to attend Parsons School of Design. Lieberman felt unfulfilled leading her to search for meaning in the field of gourmet cuisine. Soon thereafter, she opened a store "Lunettes et Chocolat" in 2000 which combined her love for chocolate with her friend’s collection of eyeglasses under one roof.
