Next time you see that pretty young blond at the local tittie bar... look into the eyes of that young lady...

That would be missing the point. Besides, I prefer brunettes.

... and see if you can any longer tell yourself they are choosing to be there.

You could play the same game with 99% of the young ladies that work at fast food joints, only it wouldn't be nearly as fun.

Happie, I don't believe it.

Then perhaps you could take a moment out of your day and peruse the links from the search queary I did, which was "are children kidnapped in SouthAmerica to be adopted by US people?"

The results are here:
http://www.google.com/search?q=are+children+kidnapped+in+SouthAmerica+to+be+adopted+by+US+people%3F&ie=utf-8&oe=utf-8&aq=t&rls=org.mozilla:en-US:official&client=firefox-a

One of the top links is a New York Times article about kidnapped children being put up as adoptables. However, the story is about the country of China, so I suppose that doesn't offer any proof that it could be happeneing in South America... even though SA babies are often a consideration for potential adoptive parents here in the US.

Also, that's not the web site of any reputable "international international aid organization." To me it just looks like advertisement for a private investigator.

Look at the footer, which indicates: "Missing Children International is a California Non Profit Organization 501(c)(3)"

I think it would be a conflict of interest to run a for-profit detective agency under the guise of a registered Not-For.



MeChrist - That is vile. But just more of what the Supertopo admin has tacitly agreed is acceptable content on their site. It still makes you vermin to post it, though.

Whatever happie. I have a couple friends that were strippers. They made A FUKING KILLING and used it as a stepping stone for their lives/careers. From what I can tell, they live happy lives with very happy hubbies.

Of course sex trafficking is horrible... but that doesn't mean every pair of tits on the intardweb or every pastie at a strip club belongs to someone who has been taken advantage of. And it CERTAINLY doesn't mean anyone who enjoys looking at them supports sex trafficing... any more than someone who smokes pot supports the Taliban's heroin trade.

Get over it... or get out there and do something that actually makes a difference. Bitching about tits on the internet is the new pathetic.

Happie,

Look at the footer, which indicates: "Missing Children International is a California Non Profit Organization 501(c)(3)"

So what, do you know how easy it is to form a 501(c)(3)organization?

I think it would be a conflict of interest to run a for-profit detective agency under the guise of a registered Not-For.

You can own a business and also a 501(c)(3) and spray about the business on the 501(c)(3) web site. The business is legally separate. http://melendezandassociates.com/about.html Read that and decide whether that is someone you trust.

The "About Us" section of the MSI site just sprays about the detective. http://missingchildreninternational.org/about_us.html



Some questions for you, Happie.

How many employees does MSI have?

What are its gross receipts?

They claim to be "international" - what international operations do they have?

How many children has MSI helped find? MSI's home page claims that MSI is "staffed with expert detectives that can assist you and the public in helping to find lost, missing children and runaway teens. If you are missing a loved one and need assistance, please phone us at any time 24 hours a day for a free, confidential discussion of how we may be able to help."

Have they found even one? How many "expert detectives" are on their staff?

I searched for MSI's Form 990 but the Foundation Center database only has 2003 and 2002 and shows that their gross receipts are not normally more than $25,000 per year. At this level, they are not required to file returns. How many reputable international aid organizations do you know that have a budget of less than $25,000 per year?

http://990finder.foundationcenter.org/990results.aspx?990_type=&fn=missing+children+international&st=CA&zp=&ei=&fy=&action=Find




The bottom line is that you were fooled by their web site, Happie.


Edit: The MSI web site claims " Melendez made the press for solving the highly reported 1997 murder of young Denise Huber, an Orange County child whose killer was captured and remains behind bars." But this is not supported by this news article from the time. http://news.google.com/newspapers?nid=1310&dat=19940718&id=vN9WAAAAIBAJ&sjid=ousDAAAAIBAJ&pg=5512,4478897 You can argue over what "solving" means, but there's nothing indicating that the police found her though this efforts.




Edit:
MeChrist - That is vile. But just more of what the Supertopo admin has tacitly agreed is acceptable content on their site. It still makes you vermin to post it, though.

I didn't think so, because I think that in the U.S. at least, most strippers are making a lot more money and are lot happier about their jobs then people working at McDonalds. Also, they work in strip joints because they want to, not because someone is making them. Why don't you talk to some, Happie?

Robert L. Chalfant, Esq., your posts used to have content worth reading. Now all you post is crap. If you posted something worthwhile recently, I haven't read it.

You killed whatever magic you used to have.

My post was originally intended SIMPLY to say that PERHAPS it made sense the villagers were freaked out because they thought the travelers could be there to steal children.

It was a pretty simply point, and there is no need for me to be required to step and style to your demands to provide "proof" of your tangential point.

Ignore the fact that children are kidnapped throughput the world, or that women are forced into prostitution, because you wouldn't dare take the time to be concerned it may be truem if you must. I can see how life would be much easier that way for.

As for what I "do" - you wouldn't be able to handle "what I do" and what I have done; I am fairly certain of that.

And you had a legitimate point... then you got distracted by boobies. Happens to the best of us.

It was a simple point, and a good point, and I agreed with it!

I simply pointed out that this was similar to the phishtaco myth, and you insisted that it was no "myth" and started posting links from MSI and claiming this proved your point. That, I do not agree with.

Edit: Shut up Locker. I usually like you and like what you say. But I think what you did on the other thread is DESPICABLE. Happie is WAY out of your league now.

Using words like maybe, perhaps, ostensibly, apparently, possibly, etc, when appearing to state a fact instead of a viewpoint is pretty funny !

GraniteClimber - I did ask for clarification as to why you thought this was a myth -I wouldn't say that was huffy.

I guess I was surprised at your response that you "didn't buy it" when I have to admit I thought people pretty much knew that children are kidnapped, though body parts was not something I had considered before. Frankly, when I know that children are abducted for use in child pornography, when I know that women are coerced into prostitution, it didn't surprise me.

Perhaps I have seen more than some people and it colors my worldview, but I can't ignore what I have seen and what I know, if only out of honor for those who have suffered and died at the hands of others(there's that damned word "honor" being abused again...right.)

Let's not fight. This forum has seen too much fighting. And thank you for supporting me in that post. I appreciate that.

"You killed whatever magic you used to have."

"Magic" is for old folks re-living their past. All I have is this incredibly stupid thread speculating as to what happened in Peru.

Yes, the "huffy" characterization was rude and not called for. I edited my post to delete it.
