In some instances, the dockworkers paid for sex by authorizing their insurance company to be fraudulently billed for chiropractic services for their children and spouses, according to federal prosecutors...
...From January 2017 to August 2021 Victoria, 46, of San Pedro operated three businesses that offered chiropractic services, acupuncture treatments and also sexual services, according to the indictment. Victoria recruited and hired women through referrals and from strip clubs in the Long Beach area.
Victoria agreed to pay cash kickbacks to the International Longshore and Warehouse Union – Pacific Maritime Association (ILWU-PMA) benefit plan members in exchange for authorization to submit the claims, according to prosecutors. In total, approximately $2,110,920 was submitted to the insurance plan and Victoria was paid approximately $551,810 from the plan, the indictment states.

I'm shocked!






I am that Masked Man.

Your boos mean nothing to me, I've seen what you cheer for.

Insisting on your rights without acknowledging your responsibilities isn’t freedom, it’s adolescence.

I've been to the edge of the map, and there be monsters.

We are a government of laws, not men.

Everybody counts or nobody counts.

When a good man is hurt,
all who would be called good
must suffer with him.

You and I have memories longer than the road that stretches out ahead.

There is no safety for honest men except
by believing all possible evil of evil men.

We don’t do focus groups. They just ensure that you don’t offend anyone, and produce bland inoffensive products. —Sir Jonathan Ive

An armed society is a polite society.
And hope is a lousy defense.

You make me pull, I'll put you down.

I *love* SIGs. It's Glocks I hate.

That reminds me of a very old, very dirty joke. PM me if you want to hear it.



San Antonio, TX (in the old city)


"All that is required for evil to prevail is for good men to do nothing." - Edmund Burke
“Neutrality helps the oppressor, never the victim. Silence encourages the tormentor, never the tormented." - Eli Weisel

"To announce that there must be no criticism of the President, or that we are to stand by the President, right or wrong, is not only unpatriotic and servile, but is morally treasonable to the American public." - Theodore Roosevelt (1918)

"I don’t want to see religious bigotry in any form. It would disturb me if there was a wedding between the religious fundamentalists and the political right. The hard right has no interest in religion except to manipulate it." - Billy Graham 1981

"Politics and governing demand compromise. But these Christians believe they are acting in the name of God, so they can't and won't compromise" - Barry Goldwater

You will find such malfeasance and shenanigans in any organization where money isn't carefully watched.. and the watchers are watched as well. Digital accounting makes this sort of nonsense more difficult, but not impossible.

Everyone needs Auditors.

My hometown once again makes the news!

Are we playing that game? If so, I think I win. News from my alma mater:

It is what it is.

I'm in Florida, that stuff is page 5 at best on a slow news day. There has to be an alligator, a migrant, and college football involved to be considered newsworthy.
