Pimp your MultiCultClassics Monologue…
• Senator Charles Grassley wants the IRS to go after pimps, slamming them with fines and prison time for not filing employment forms and withholding taxes for their employees. “The thugs who run these trafficking rings are exploiting society’s poorest girls and women for personal gain,” Grassley said. “The IRS goes after drug traffickers. It can go after sex traffickers.” It’s hard out in the Senate for a pimp.
• Michael Jackson fired his business managers, hired new financial advisors and plans to move to Europe. A spokeswoman for Jacko called the changes “the first of a sweeping restructuring of his personal and business affairs.” Sounds like the same approach he’s taken with his face.
• Oglala Sioux tribal leaders in South Dakota plan to create roadblocks to prohibit members from bringing beer into their community. While booze has already been banned on their reservation, four nearby stores still sell beer to folks. The leaders intend to confiscate any beer bought in the area. One storeowner said, “I just don’t know how it’s going to work or how they have any legal grounds to confiscate any beer. I just don’t think they’ll get anyone to stop for them.” Sounds like a job for The Lone Ranger and Tonto.
