      Thanks for your Judgement but you are WRONG! and it feels good to know you are wrong when you think you are so right. hahahaha.
      OK so I feel success is what a lot of us working class strive for. But when we have a current system that props up the legal corruption and those at certain levels don’t play by the same rules. It just isn’t fair to the ones that where born in bad circumstance and have the house bet against them. what happen to fair and equal chance. It’s almost like you have to be rich to become rich.

      Money is not freedom of speech and corporations are not people!

      Now go do some research before you look foolish from somebody half your age.

    Dems aren’t the ones trying to sell us if you tax the rich less it will help the economy grow, Which is something I hope nobody buys into because our economy grows through consumer demand (the middle class). If you look at the tax rates in relation to the GDP growth you will see the truth about taxing the rich and how it effects the economy growth. How hard is that that to Google?

    I understand the democrats are in the same boat when it comes to getting campaign donations and selling out to the big donors best interest but they aren’t trying to makes us believe we need to tax the rich less. Also the Dems aren’t telling us if we cut defense it will cripple our military. We spending as much now then we did in the middle of the Iraq war!

    And quite frankly the Republican platform has lost there mind! Also it makes me mad that they would stop any kind of progress so it would make the president look bad so they can get their own in office. (they have admitted to that).

    And the conservative voting all because you and your family are OK who cares about anyone else right? I guess if I felt I was OK with everything in my world I would fear change as well!

    Obama 2012!

        Romney is worth an estimated $250 million and has been accused of being out of touch with most Americans’ economic struggles.
        I suppose wannabe rich neocons today like to fantasize about the day Mitt Romney turns over his tax returns for public examination.

        Esfo –
        You’ve been glued to the Limbaugh and Fox News shows for far too long.
        Try to understand how the conditioning process works.
        Say the word liberal (think of a nasty image)
        Say it again (another nasty image)
        And again.
        And again.
        And …

    Hahahaha, is that how some of you see my post’s? the way I am reading some of these? hahahahahah Blogging and this website is fun to be able to interact with all these colorful imaginations.

    It is good to see the Cops getting the real nasty stuff off our local streets. The war on drugs really has been a utter failure! This doesn’t mean I agree with legalizing the real nasty stuff but to rethink how we throw justice at the average drug user.

    Oregon, Washington, and Colorado all have the legalize marijuana on the ballot this November. We all know criminalizing Marijuana depletes the state budget. Colorado currently has a lead in the polls 47 to 38!

    Why is it as a nation we spend more money on prisons and jail’s then we do on education? I don’t know about you but that doesn’t seem to promising to the future. All of your that are voting for the republicans this year you can say goodbye to the Child tax credit and home mortgage deduction so the rich can pay for there tax break.

    In a our current system the mega corporations pay more to lobbyists then they do on taxes!

    Corporations are not people and money is not freedom of speech! its time to take our democracy back from this Mega rich takeover, Don’t you think the rich have enough representation!

    Obama 2012!

    • esfotoguy September 13, 2012 at 12:08 pm #

      and John Kerry, Nancy Palosi,Harry Ried and The Kennedys and oh ya The Student in Chief arent 1%ers? take the blinders off allready!

      • Jeremiah's Alter Ego September 13, 2012 at 2:42 pm #

        Its the policy that makes the difference. You look at the republican policy and ask yourself, Hmm do they represent me or themselves? Then look at the diversity of who the Dems represent and the policy that effects more in a better way rather then a bad way.
        Honestly I can’t see how Mr. Mitt Romney and his followers think he is gonna win, for instance he has not the black vote, he has not the a majority of the Hispanic vote, he has not the single mom and woman vote who feel they know whats best for themselves, He has not the young progressive vote which is the rising star of voters. I really don’t understand how he has any vote’s when you read and understand his policy’s, of course besides the the ones like Sheldon Adelson who donated about 100 million dollars to republican campaigns. You wanna know how much he will get a return on his investment if the Romney Ryan plan goes into effect LIKE ABOUT 2.3 BILLION DOLLARS IN TAX BREAKS.

        Do you really think they represent you!

        Obama 2012!!

        • Big AL September 13, 2012 at 8:43 pm #

          It doesn’t matter who and how much was and is being donated to the Donkeys .. because just as much is getting stuffed in Elephants … So I don’t go along with your argument about one party getting more tips.

        • Romney's belief system September 14, 2012 at 5:14 am #

          And speaking of Romney and his followers …

          “And [God] had caused the cursing to come upon them, yea, even a sore cursing, because of their iniquity. For behold, they had hardened their hearts against him, that they had become like unto a flint; wherefore, as they were white, and exceedingly fair and delightsome, that they might not be enticing unto my people, the Lord God did cause a skin of blackness to come upon them. And thus saith the Lord God; I will cause that they shall be loathsome unto thy people, save they shall repent of their iniquities.” (2 Nephi 5:21)

          This quote from the Book of Mormon does not exactly suggest a warm and fuzzy feeling for black people.

          • No to black priests September 14, 2012 at 10:08 am #

            From the mid-1800s until 1978, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (Mormon Church) had a policy against ordaining black men of African descent to the church’s lay priesthood. This resulted in black members being unable to participate in some temple ordinances considered necessary for salvation. Though the church had an open membership policy for all races, relatively few black people who were aware of the racial policy joined the church, despite reassurance that the ban would one day be lifted.

            And Robert Byrd[hero of the Democratic party past] was a frikkin Klansman….do we paint the whole party with that? Once again there is no such thing as an open minded liberal when it comes to religion…cept if your a Muslim

            What are you trying to say? This is totally incomprehensible. No such thing as an open-minded liberal? Are you being sarcastic? Maybe I missed your meaning somehow.

            It seems to me, pigmentation in a person’s skin as protectection from the sun’s harsh rays would be a blessing – not a curse.

            I hope this subject might come up during the Presidential debates.

      Yes, of course it is Obama’s fault. Or maybe space aliens. The last person to be blamed is the guy selling the drugs right? After all he is just another victim is what you are saying right?

      Hey squirrels are dropping pine cones on my roof at 6 am. That’s Obama also right?

        • liberalis uber alles September 10, 2012 at 1:41 pm #

          Liberalism (from the Latin liberalis) is a broad political ideology or worldview founded on the ideas of liberty and equality. Liberals espouse a wide array of views depending on their understanding of these principles, but generally liberals support ideas such as capitalism (either regulated or not), constitutionalism, liberal democracy, free press, free and fair elections, human rights and the free exercise of religion.

          Today’s Far-Right has completely re-defined the word to mean trouble-makers, communists, and America-haters.

            Gotta love when people “thumbs-down” facts. The new conservative norm is virtually fact-free…

          • Industrial Military Complex September 13, 2012 at 10:27 am #

            Conservatives claim to be fiscally responsible while running up the national debt at a record pace, usually with the help of their friends in the industrial military complex (Dick and Lynne Cheney were former CEOs of defense contractors, Halliburton and Lockheed Martin). They also like to keep the rich rich and the poor underfoot.
            Duping the poor into falsely believing in a trickle-down effect.

    • Jeremiah's Alter Ego September 13, 2012 at 9:48 am #

      How did you manage to get 7 thumbs up on that. That is just silly and how did that qualify as a hot debate topic? I refuse to stoop to someones level when the potential of them seeing it in a different light is gone with the wind.

  10. Altitude September 8, 2012 at 3:36 pm #

    This guy will spray cars with a waterhose if he thinks they are driving to fast on his street. Yet, he is selling coke out of his house. Talk about some messed priorities.

  11. Mammothite September 8, 2012 at 11:01 am #

    Great Job MONET!! Sources say this guy has been active for over a decade. And, that he has sold to the old, long time local coke head business owners types, etc.

    MONET did a fantastic job. I would love to see the numbers in his cell phone! I think it will contain many of the Whos Who in Mammoth.

    • Out with the trash September 9, 2012 at 9:52 pm #

      I am sure they already know the phone numbers.

      I heard Monet seized more property other than drugs. A couple motorcycles and his Jeep too.

  12. Out with the trash September 8, 2012 at 10:22 am #

    I wonder why they took so long to get this guy?
    I also wonder who else is going down with him?

    I heard the cops took more than drugs from him.

    • Big AL September 10, 2012 at 6:44 pm #

      Gather intelligence, try to see if they can get the bigger fish out with the trash.
