Press, On The Hook for Unpaid Taxes

September 21, 2009 by  
Filed under Tech/Sci

A former top executive at Chrysler can’t pay his bills!

“Jim Press, who briefly ran Toyota Motor Corp.’s U.S. operations and spent 37 years with the Japanese automaker before joining Chrysler as one of its three top executives in 2007, is facing claims of more than $1.35 million for unpaid federal taxes and a personal loan.”

“The 62-year-old auto executive … may be one of the highest profile victims of Detroit’s collapse.”

In my opinion, Press is not a victim because he could foresee his financial fiasco.  Casualty, yes – victim, no!

The monetary meltdown was the result of his ignoring a basic budgeting lesson – NEVER count on bonuses to supplement your income.  “Press blamed the elimination of bonuses at Chrysler for his failure to pay back the personal loan.”

Prudent people don’t spend more than what’s shown on their paycheck(s) – the net income (what ‘s left over after taxes, Social Security deductions, etc., are taken out).

Pres and his wife “purchased a multimillion-dollar, 6,900-square-foot luxury home in the Detroit suburb of Birmingham in June 2008, taking out a $2.2 million mortgage with ING Bank, records show.

“The couple, who have put the six-bedroom mansion up for sale at $3.15 million, now face a tax lien against the property for just over $947,000 related to unpaid income taxes for 2007, according to a filing in late August.”

In Press’ interview last year with the New York Times (actual date unknown), he said, “in reference to the string on his wrist: ‘This is actually from my wife’s grandfather. It reminds you that in life, you just need enough to get along. What’s important in life isn’t what you have, but how you live.'”

Perhaps Press should have tried to follow that principle.

In my opinion, someone that fiscally irresponsible was not fit to be a top executive anywhere.

Underwire Bra Deflects Bullet

April 24, 2009 by  
Filed under Weird Stuff

“A 57-year-old Detroit woman avoided serious injury when the underwire on her bra deflected a bullet shot at her from next door, police said.

The woman, who lives on the West side of Detroit, saw a group of men breaking into a neighbour’s house on Tuesday morning. When the men spotted her, one of them fired a shot at her, a police spokesman said.

The bullet struck the underwire on the woman’s bra and that saved her from a more serious injury, police said.”

Reuters

Detroit looks like Dresden after the bombing by the Allies — entire neighborhoods are abandoned and only the poor and criminals are left behind. We’ve all heard about the failed states of Pakistan and Somalia, but little attention is paid to the failed city of Detroit. 

I’m not surprised the suspects escaped, Detroit doesn’t have enough police to even make a pretense of trying to solve all of its murders and burglaries. 

This woman is lucky that she was saved from serious injury or death by her underwire bra, but she should have been wearing a bulletproof bra. If I lived in Detroit I would never leave home without my America Express Card and my Glock. 

The lucky lady should invest in a bulletproof vest, and mind her own business. The next time she sees an army of thugs breaking into a house on her block, she should close her shades and don her bulletproof vest.
