MORE JOE MAMMANA AFTER RITA COSBY APPEARANCE


I just got off the phone with Joe M. about his appearance on Rita Cosby last night. I was disappointed that they didn't talk more about the boycott, so I gave Joe some open 'cyber-waves' to finish what he wanted to say.

His first words were, "Man, I shut her up last night. (Arlene Schippers). We laughed and I said, "She is a real bitch, isn't she?!" Joe M. has a message for Aruba, "...this whole thing (boycott) is going to be like a slow-motion train wreck. We are building momentum and they are going to be standing there in front of the tracks when he hit them head on."

He reminded his opponents that it doesn't matter if each state's governor is with us or not. It isn't about getting a political endorsement for the boycott...it's just a matter of telling people, "Hey! Don't go to Aruba." He said that political endorsements help, but we are the ones that really make things happen. The grassroots organizations (little people like you and me!) are the ones that are really getting out and doing something about it. Do you see the citizens of Aruba standing up and getting involved like we are here in the U.S.?

He also wanted to throw in there that Philadelphia has been the first and only city to draw up and bring forth a bipartisan resolution to boycott Aruba to the City-Council. It is currently on the docket...so we will have to wait to see what happens there.

Until then, just don't go to Aruba! Plain and simple. If you want to go on vacation, simply choose somewhere else. It doesn't take any effort on our part to NOT do something. Joe mentioned that he had just gotten off the phone with a travel agent who said that she is telling her clients not to go to Aruba and she is not promoting or encouraging anyone to vacation there. According to this travel agent, a majority of her fellow colleagues feel the same as her and are doing the same thing.

Joe said, "There are more people with us than against us." I nodded my head, "Absolutely."

Joe is right. Aruba needs to take out there own trash and get to the truth of what really happened to Natalee. The spin needs to stop now. Gram23

Joe is just a piece of trash. Calling a lady a bitch? Is that the kind of person YOU and Beth wants to associate with?

Michelle said...

No...it was ME that called her a bitch. And who cares about who associates with who anymore...it's about getting Natalee home.

Have any of you considered the possibility that Natalee doesn't want to come home?

It is so sad natalee has been lost in this whole media madness. Even her own mother would rather her daughter be remembered as a Natl Enquirer story, then the beautiful young woman Im sure she was.
I have a very good friend whose son was once missing, and well even she has said this is all not normal. Most people with missing children try hard to lesson the exploitation of their child. So sad!!

aruba officials already have the truth, and they have had it for sometime.

I like that Joe shoots straight.

Go Joe, all the spin coming from Aruba lately is really getting old. Aruba is hurting Aruba more than any call for a boycott. Their stupitity, of turning everthing around to the missing in the states is a just more of their way to justify a the ALE being inadequate in this case. I am sick of hearing and reading Aruba's response to anything, it's them who are causing all the Media crap.

I'm sure that with your great system of justice it is ok to sentence people to death on just suspicions or hear say. And if you fail to get evidence then am sure it is ok to make some up like dr. phil did. At the same time blame the authorities and if that still isn't enough well hey let's boycot Aruba. Sure enough the people responsible should be prosecuted. Sad thing is that all the effort put into this boycot takes away the attention of what it should be about: finding out the truth about what happened and prosecuting the guilty person(s). Not on hearsay or on doctored tapes but on real evidence. Here is a traveltrip for those joining the boycot: i wish all of you a good trip to Iraq. After all thanks to the USA it is such a safer place in this world nowadays so don't wait and don't go to Aruba! Go to Iraq instead.

I'm very happy to see you calling my friend Arlene a bitch. You are so educated. Have you tried out for a Job at a tabloid? Because you surely know how to act like a real bitch queen. I'm really looking forward to meet/search for Joe Mamana next week in Philly have a lot to discuss with this bambino! And btw, just like my other posts, you can go ahead and delete this one as well!

Michelle said...

Hey Gabriel--I won't disappoint you. I'm allowing your little comment.

Actually, I am very educated, thank you. You guys down there don't seem to understand that people like me with blogs are just regular American citizens with no desire to get into journalism. We are regular people who care and who refuse to see this corrupt injustice go on any further.

I don't want to see any more any more girls or women who are victimized by sociopathic stalkers whose goal in life is to see how many American girls they can drug and screw in a month.

Hold your citizens accountable for what they do.

Michelle said...

BTW, I'll mention to Joe M. that you will be in the Philly area looking for him. When will you be there? Next week? I'm sure he'll thrilled.

I'll also report to the airlines and the FBI that a terrorist is coming into the United States out of Aruba.

I was shocked as this story developed. Aruba was all pissed off because it affected their tourism, they didn't give a crap about this girl.
I will NEVER go to Aruba, and no one in my family will eithor. We are all so close, and if one of us got murdered there..... we now know this country wouldn't care. All they care about is how to bury it so they can keep tourist coming!
