The Lulu-fication of the Council

Big Money, Big Money

Yesterday probably marked the end of the warm beginning of Christine Quinn's term as City Council Speaker - at least vis-a-vis the NYC press corpse.

Today's stories about the half-million dollars worth of lulus Speaker Quinn doled out during yesterday's Stated Council Meeting reminded us of ... well ... how shall we say this ... Miller time!

So what are you waiting for? Start reading...

Frank Lombardi of the Daily News opens up his piece with this:

She's the first gay woman to serve as City Council speaker, but Christine Quinn followed the time-honored tradition of her good ol' boy predecessors when it came to doling out committee posts yesterday.


Meanwhile, Frankie Edozien of the New York Post, noted this:

Council members from Queens and The Bronx were the obvious winners in payback from Quinn to her powerful supporters, Queens Democratic leader Tom Manton and Bronx Democratic boss José Rivera.

I am currently doing two Multi-Level-Marketing programs I would Like To recommend. The first is www.hennenvitamins.com . I started on this MLM because I was excited about the product. They carry whole food multi vitamin and do a good job of explaining why the synthetic multi vitamin you are taking might actually have negative affects to your body. They also carry 4 Food supplements which you can check out at the site. The product I became hooked on was healthy weight loss supplement. I started at 300#'. and have seen easily duplicated weight loss in the Month I have been on it. I last weighed in at 283#'s. A 17# weight loss. With so many Americans trying to lose weight this is an easy sell.

The second MLM I got into was due to my family, My oldest son John started using ACAI Juice which contains Magnates (spelling)and other ingredients high in ANTI-OXIDANTS , he was so excited about the product he told his younger brother, who told my wife, now were all using it. Anti-oxidants are important6 because the fight free radicals in your blood. Free radicals are what make us age, they also attack your brain and have some impact on cancers and tumors. (My 6 year old has 30% survival chance from Neuro Blastoma, so you can see why this is important to us. This company is poised on the edge of a great expansion, which I like because the timing is right. I love the structure of this MLM, it is a 3x4 Forced Matrix, Which means even if someone in your group does not work, there is spill over and he will want to stay in because he is making money. This is the website for the juice; http://www.acaiplus.com/hennen12048
God Bless,
Reverend John L. Hennen
