I think it was the one helping Gaetz make fake IDs.

There's a tax collector now too?  I thought his pimp was the hand surgeon/pot dealer?  So many people.  In my day, we picked up teen-age girls at the mall ourselves, like respectable perverts.

Example #92358603846 of how Republicans are just plain immoral scum.

But he was claiming a $5k loss on each for his taxes.  Plus, they were part of his standard deductions for the year.

Sure that sounds like an unreasonable markup but have you ever seen the prices of bottles of wine at a restaurant?

That Q thing sure was onto something, weren't they? We have child trafficking, sex trafficking, etc. etc.

All done by Republicans, obviously, but what else did you expect?
 
2021-04-22 6:59:12 AM  
I'm starting to see why Republicans are so pro-fetus.
 
2021-04-22 7:00:34 AM  
So Republicans are actually stealing babies and selling them and porking underaged girls with fake IDs, while they are worried that Hillary has children in a non existent basement of a pizza place. Got it.

Cop Rock was better than it had any right to be.

Anyway the guy is a slaver and therefore Hostis humani generis. He should be given no legal protection and a show trial just long enough to ensure he's the right man.

aren't there criminal penalties on the books for belonging to an organized criminal organization? And aren't there penalties, written by Republicans, for being a member of a violent street gang? Shouldn't we be acting on those statutes and removing them from society before Republican pols have been outed for whatever their individual sick proclivity is?
 
2021-04-22 7:09:05 AM  
What was he supposed to do, subby?

Sell them at a loss?

I's all about that sweet, sweet Adenochrome. Once again, it's Republican projection, accusing shadowy Democrats of crimes they themselves have committed.

Depends on where it comes from... with Yahoo Answers now gone, now nobody will ever know where babby came from.

They were worried she was getting in on their turf.

I know this violates Fark protocol utterly, but I read the entire article.

Christ that's just disgusting. He should never see the light of day again. He still seems to not actually realize that setting up a business internationally trafficking in kids, paying off poor polynesians to take their kids and sell them to well-off mainlanders and pocketing the difference, is legally & morally horrific.

I feel filthy just thinking about it. Man must have ice in his veins.

She was a monster.

I'm saying that and I don't even like kids.

And drinking their adrenachrome....because Republicans are all about projection.

Citizens of the Marshall Islands have been prohibited from traveling to the United States for adoption purposes since 2003.

Wow, just because of this guy or is it a larger issue?

The evilangelicals were using the area as a babby factory in the 90's.

Chop up those babies and use it for pizza toppings.

He's Mormon, so has the Church kicked him out?
Also, his lawyer, damn.

"His family has been destroyed, and he is professionally and financially obliterated. His four children will not see their father in the free world before they are off to college. Even after he is released from incarceration he will be supervised, and his ability to regain any professional or personal life will be completely marginalized," Williams wrote. "One would hope that the government's thirst for vengeance against Paul D. Petersen has now finally been sated."

Thats some cartoon level villainy there. 

How many orphanages has he burned down? How many nuns has he raped and murdered?

This guy stirs his coffee with the souls of dead puppies.

The one couple just talkin about how since the birth mother didn't get very good prenatal care, child they adopted has some health issues.

But it sounds a Teensy bit like they're complaining that they didn't get good value for their money.
 
2021-04-22 7:45:49 AM  
$10k isn't bad for a non-white baby.

Well they purchased a slave; you want someone who can work, not cost you money.

I found this part intresting..
In March, he was ordered to serve five years for defrauding Arizona's Medicaid system in a scam to get taxpayer-funded health coverage for the birth mothers, even though he knew they didn't live in the state.

"...the government's thirst for vengeance against Paul D. Petersen..."

Yeah, that's what this is... "vengeance" upon your poor, innocent client, who just wanted to sell a few babies.

FTFY.

There is a reason why American Evilangelicals do much of their religious tourist thing in places like The Philippines, Cambodia and Thailand.

Is there a real difference between hiring a surrogate and buying a baby like this?

I feel both are equally predatory, or equally acceptable. One is significantly less legal than the other.
