NEW YORK -- A New York City health department inspector bizarrely slapped a Brooklyn bagel shop with $1,650 in fines -- because sesame and poppy seeds fell to the floor while the bagels were being made during working hours.
The owner of B&B Empire Bagel Cafe -- who appealed the violations and lost at two separate hearings -- said the inspectors must have holes in their heads.

I want that America back.
Compare that to OWS
You know I want as many people as possible to see what happens when a liberal who poses as a Republican takes power, and your post is one of the few that seems to acknowledge that. For some reason on Freep, I can’t get people to believe that the people who live here in New York city are actually living under Despotism! They either do not believe it or do not care.
So let me show you some more...
Here is what the Despot is doing to the New York city cops. He is literally threatening them to act as mafiosa brown shirts or they lose their vacation...
Listen to this radio ad...
Now the common liberal may say: “Oh Bloomberg is just doing that because the city is broke and needs money”
But it’s all BS. What he is using that money for, is for his fanatical obsession to change NYC green. He is literally spending 100s of millions of dollars to split streets in half, one half for bicycles and one half for cars. Eventually he said he intends to ban all cars running on gas.
Plus he is on this psychotic landscaping exterior decorating hobby where he is planting trees and bushes any place he can. But he needs money, so now he is using Nazi tactics to shake down landlords, cops, taxi drivers, all to supply money for his fanaticism. A friend of mine got FORTY SEVEN tickets in ONE month for doing nothing more than trying to deliver computer products his company is trying to sell. He says because of that, it will most likely destroy the comapany because they can’t afford the fines and lawyer fees.
Now who still wants to vote for Romney? Rich liberal from Assachussets? That’s Bloomberg. Made pretend he was a Conservative Republican? That’s Bloomberg. Is there something worse than Obama? Yes there is, it’s called a fraud named Romney. Remember: Obama didn’t invent Obamacare. Romney did. Like my Grandmother always told me: Never trust any politician coming out of Assachussets and she was 101 years old when she died and spot on about that statement. NOTHING good has EVER come out of Assachussets when it comes to politics, she had plenty of experience. I won’t vote for Obama but I’ll be damned if I vote for Romney as well. If Obama wins a 2nd term, so be it. It won’t be any worse than Romney winning and that’s the Gods honest truth. He is a fkin LIAR and I bet Ann Coulter $10,000 bucks that Romney WILL NOT repeal Obamacare if he is elected! Easiest 10k I will ever make.
I agree...I hate Romney
That being said, I have ordered an industrial strength clothes pin to clamp on my nose when I vote against zer0bama’s regime in November
As bad as Romney is, he does not hold a candle to the Marxist suckyness that is Hussein
Someone is getting the benefit of this official service.
I wonder what it costs to sic inspectors on a bagel shop?
I also wonder what the real price is when they have to explain the messes they made to the highest authority of all.
Bet they think it wasn't worth the price they'll be made to pay.
Who will regulate the regulators?
We have become extraordinarily lackadaisical and careless about our Constitution, legal system, society, finances and freedom.
We have ignored each of the warning signs we've passed and in turn, the warning signs have now become lighted billboards with flashing and scrolling warnings.
When reality finally has had enough of our ignoring it and it's many warnings, we're going to be hit upside the head so hard it might take our head clean off.
It's starting to look inevitable, so do we have a year or less before that happens? (Check out some of the treaties obama probably will sign and what will happen as a result.)
Between the enormous .40 cal ammo buy by Homeland Security and obama's very troubling Executive order update, this could be a very wild ride.
I wonder how the butcher shop I worked at when I was a kid would have fared today.
The sawdust on the floor got changed once a week (sometimes two weeks) along with all the pieces of fat, gristle and bone that the daily raking didn’t remove.
I live in Aiken County, SC. In Aiken, the county seat, there are two Dunkin Doughnut shops, an Atlanta Bread Co store and two stand-alone bagel shops. So, yes, I guess people around here love bagels.
I'm especially partial to the asiago cheese bagels at Atlanta Bread. Delish!
The very air itself in NY is saturated by mouse and rat fecal material. Blech. Safer to buy Sarah Lee.... made by illegals who love America....
I guess you missed it where NYC is now going to regulate private buses that come into the city, they will need a permit.
It’s easy to get a ticket in that city. The parking meter only allows for one hour intervals so if you forget you most likely have a ticket especialy if your on the main roads. Commercial designated areas get 3 hours. And at $65 a pop it adds up. Parking in non authorized zone its $95. Double park its $120 or so(and yes they sometimes consider it double parking if you stop for the briefest of moments). Just watch the meeter maids, its like they follow the FedEx and UPS drivers not to mention delievery trucks. They hand the tickets out like cheap candy.
“Take The Money And Run” was pretty good too.

he must have forgotten to give the “inspector” the proper “paperwork”...
They need to study with Thornton Melon.
And the thing is if those Fedex and UPS trucks stopped delivering, the city would shut down in a week. Where do people think all that stuff comes from they buy in stores? Do they think the shelves magically re-supply themselves? I saw a food truck delivering food to a supermarket last month and the ticket agent throwing tickets on the guys windshield. This is a guy who brings FOOD into the city, who was not blocking anybody, and here he is getting punished!
The city has so many scams going on to steal peoples money it makes my head spin. Probably one of the worst I ever heard was a friend of mine who drives a cab part time. He said one day last year he was stuck in traffic on 7th avenue in the far right lane, and this lady got into his cab and told him to go down into the Village. And as soon as he moved, this cop walked up to him and ended up giving him a ticket for “improper pickup” The lady if you can believe it got into his cab when it was more than 12” from the curb!
So he goes down to court later on and tells the judge he did nothing, he was stopped in traffic and she got in, and the Judge didn’t care and convicted him anyway. $130 buck fine and he had 2 weeks to pay.
So get this: Being that he already had 9000 other tickets to pay, he didn’t pay that one on time. I think he said he was a day late. So he goes off and drives a cab and gets pulled over again, the cop checks his license and comes back to him and tells him to step out of the car and tells him his license has been suspended and he is under arrest for driving with a suspended license. Why was it suspended? Because he was a day late paying the “improper pickup” ticket which was now raised to $200. And then to get out of jail he had to pay $500 plus the $200 for $700 total! And all for DOING ABSOLUTELY NOTHING WRONG!! For just sitting in his cab stuck in traffic! Can you believe that sh*t?? This is North Korean crap, not America! But it is America, and one of it’s biggest cities which to me is absolutely run under Despotism.
A nice lady at the banking institution I use advised me to keep my business balance low (less than 6 figures)--I do. Stay under the radar as much as possible.
I have come to the conclusion that these are people who simply could not make it on there own in life, so they have to torment everyone else who can with their misery which seems to be the only thing that they are good at.
We closed down the business in ‘89 NOT JUST because of the government assault on our piggy bank, but also they of a sudden decided they needed to regulate harmless chemical products we used miniscule amounts of to create what it was we built, and sold. NOT ONLY did they decide to regulate these small viles of product, but began charging us a fee for their regulation of said products as well.
We decided to “H” with the business as it wasn’t worth the effort anymore. All the enjoyment of owning ones own small business venture (it was truly a “Mom & Pop entity) was regulated, and fee’d away.
The tentacles of government control are like the Hydra, cut one off and seven more appear. It has become so ingrained in our society most people have no clue what freedom is, and are more fearful of the responsibility that comes with it than being suffocated by petty regulation.
One odd little quirk there....if you’re low on sodium, it tends to make you both ravenous and thirsty...but if what you’re eating isn’t salty, then you’re cramming down wasted calories.
Sounds like a certain public employee was sending a message—grease the palm and all will be well.
Anyone who lives in New York deserves everything they have coming to them.
