Carthage Woman Admits Cheating Fort Drum's Exchange | WWNY TV 7 - News, Weather and Sports for | Local News

   OK, this lady operated an alteration business in a federal store and agreed to cut Uncle Sam in on a piece of the action. Then she told employees to run credit card charges without ringing them up as sales, so as to understate her income, a percentage of which was to go to the government.
    Well, among the dumb things was telling employees and then leaving a paper trail. Credit cards do so.
     However, as we have learned many times from private enterprises on public properties, its better to just charge rent and not link revenue to anyone's accounting of actual sales.
      Also, why does the government need to operate department stores. There's a Wal-Mart nearby.

Can you really blame her? After all lil Guido Cuomo and the Lair in Chef 0-Bozo screw the small business owners everywhich way they can. It is no wonder good decent honest hard working caring folks do whatever they need to do to get around the dumb laws that libertards create!

They're type frosts me!

The reason the Fort has a dept. store is so the retiree can save money on purchases and not pay the High Sales Tax of the County, So today I $pent around $700.00 Bought a few items I needed a new pistol, and some boots, and a dozen roses for the Wife, And charged it on my Govt. Star Card and got another 10% off and didn't have to pay any sales tax, and I didn't have to purchase the roses from Gray's....Win Win for me..........

Because it's not pc to go against benefits for our military. It would make much more sense to do away with all their benefits and find the correct dollar amt to pay them.

Don't be foolish Mayor Graham. Probably over half the businesses in Jefferson county pay contingent rent or royalties to a landlord or franchisor. Just because it took awhile for the military to catch on, doesn't mean it is not the fairest and smartest arrangement. Enforcing it is simple. Trust but verify. Audit.
Everyone who pays attention has seen a bartender or a Chinese restaurant open the register without running the sale through the register. Observation and auditing are just part of being a landlord for anyone who rents out commercial retail space.

Yup it's only those bartenders and chinks. Not those criminal, illegal Mexicans that Trump keeps reminding us about, huh 748?

Mexico is going to pay for that wall too, right?

Yeah 8:59 PM, they're all hero's. 99.9% of them are no different than the guy unloading trucks in the back of WalMart.
Just like those brave firemen and cops. Then again, you can take all the military/fireman/cop casualties from the last 15 years and you know what you get? The number of construction workers who were killed in ONE year.

Right you are 414 and everything is a personal choice, always funny to hear the WFD on Glen's Show, how the former President had to resign his position because he had to finish his house, they all have second jobs, as do the Hardworking CO's meanwhile taking us all for a ride....
