Any FRp’rs have $ 100,000.00 in jewelry layin’ around for the takin’ ??? Just askin’
Guy should get one of those car alarms...
There's a jeweler's kid in Richardson, Texas that I put through medical school.
Buy a LOJACK sir!
You beat me to the punchline!
Heh heh.....he should have stored his valuables in his car.
Bet some Freepers have that much tied up in guns.
Just don't leave them layin' around.
That was the year I bought gold for all the adult female relatives (and especially Mrs. Joe) for Christmas. Gold was at roughly $300 then, and the jewelry has appreciated significantly in value.
I can’t help wondering if this has some connection to Issa’s investigation of Holder and Obama. Maybe they were after his hard drive, to see what he had stored on it. If so, can’t blame the burglars for making a little personal profit as well as disguising their real purpose.
Bad things happen to people who cross the Dixie Mafia or the Chicago Mob.
And bunkers among other “Prepper” Items! Don’t forget a good CB Radio so we can communicate....the code is “Samuel Prescott rides again” ;)
Who the hell gets robbed of that much jewelry in this day and age.
I can appreciate your cynicism but it is not always possible to sell jewelry at “a huge profit” a lot of time pieces have sentimental value as they are heirlooms and the appraisal/insurance value often is not what you can actually sell the item for.
and there are people around who have some nice pieces that are usually handed down generation to generation not purchased new
calculating value of guns and the large supply of ammo in the house.......what is the price of ammo is it is banned?
Could be simple theft, but I didn’t see anyone even propose that _they_ are trying to send a message to Issa.
Chicago gets things done w/ threats and intimidation, first; then killings...
Old Darrell must be doing pretty good to have $100,000 dollars in Jewelry lying around.
This was my FIRST thought when reading the headline.
Does Issa have any kids? If not, this might be the dead fish “message” from the administration.
The message is “Leave Benghazi alone”.
Jewelry means nothing to me.
Guns and the right to own them mean a lot.
“I cant help wondering if this has some connection to Issas investigation of Holder and Obama...”
It is rather curious isn't it? Break in looking for something on Issa and make it look like another everyday crime. Take the family jewels....tell me that wouldn't be sending a message from the Chicagocrooks.
Obama will stop at nothing to harm those who get in his way.
Q: It is only wealth redistribution. What’s the problem?
A: Thou shalt not steal. The government hates competition.
Sixty gold one-ounce coins such as Krugerrands would equal $100,000. They would form a stack you could hide inside a paper towel tube. That’s just the gold melt value. Jewelry would be worth even more, hence, would be even more compact.
its impossible for me to see how in any respect, something like this is not construed as a personal threat to the congressman....and that undoubtedly others...?Boehner? may well have had their own threatening experiences that probably have not made the papers.
