Maury covered a story on A Current Affair (1988-89 about a baby girl being put up for addoption and at risk of being taken into the Escamo Tribe her mother was taken out of because of their abbusive life style. The Mothers name was Jodi Argelben. (not sure about spelling of name)She was my 16 year old brothers girlfriend and that baby girl was his. He would love to meet his daughter now that she is an adult. Wouldn't it be great to have Maury reunite them on the Maury Show? PLEASE contact me for more information. Thank You!!

What a shock more zionist backed nonsesne to help futher bring down the USA. Maury and his cast of characters have no problem showing off and normalizing scum. How many times have you "Povich" had Jewish guest on any of your marvolus plots ? not to often if ever. Asian's ? nope Connie wouldnt approve of that. Faulhaber,Rosenblum and Povich have no problem making Black, Spainish and " white trash " all look like trash. The way Maury promote's his ghetto nonsense agenda is nothing short of sicking. Maury Povich makes Jerry Springer look like gentleman of the year. Somebody please pull this garbage off the airwaves.

TO THE IDIOTS WHO POSTED THEIR DISGUST FOR MAURY POVICH: OBVIOUSLY YOU HAVE NEVER REALLY WATCHED HIS SHOW. WHILE THE GUESTS ON HIS SHOW ARE SCUM, HE IS ONLY TRYING TO HELP IN THE MOST COMPASSIONATE WAY POSSIBLE. IF YOU DON'T LIKE THE SHOW THEN DON'T WATCH IT. MAURY IS NOT EXPLOITING ANYONE. THE GUESTS CHOOSE TO AIR THEIR DIRTY LAUNDRY. MAURY DOES NOT FORCE ANYONE TO GO ON THE SHOW. YOU ARE ALL A BUNCH OF HATERS. AT LEAST MAURY IS RICH, BITCHES!!!!! MAYBE YOU WOULD BE RICH TOO IF YOU KNEW HOW TO SPELL AND HOW TO WRITE. GO TAKE AN ENGLISH CLASS AND TRY TO COME UP WITH SOMETHING A LITTLE MORE INTELLIGENT NEXT TIME.

Im sorry, Maury is a disgrace to himself and his faith, which is zionist, they are not jewish, zionists are not torah true jews, zionism is the cancer that is eating judaism - zionists believe that everyone on earth who is not a zionist jew is an animal and that it is their mission to keep them down, encourage vice and encourage chaos among them create mystery and confusion and the worship of the five senses and if they find someone who is appealing then they should be given the opportunity to convert to judaism and help herd the cattle, but their judaism is a cult that has nothing to do with judaism and was forbidden, it is a dedication to the corruption of all things good and wholesome, his aim is to convince all humans that we are trash and are driven only by lust and petty surface carnal desires, much like the Bruno film and other media from people who believe in this religion of the promotion of everything opposite of normal, natural life.

as long as we are at each other's throats we are under control like good sheep, once you separate judaism from zionism, these characters are easy to spot, thats why we are almost about to have our men dying in iran, iran always says "zionist" check for yourself

This religion is the same among all inbred elitists and everytime they get caught doing evil they put the blame off on jews. If Povich Was Jewish He would not be doing that show. real jews are a lot like amish, we dont even ever see them on tv a G-d fearing jew would tremble in fear at what he is doing and he does not bring jewish people on his show so that they dont out him which they should do

dont watch that show, many of those people are mentally ill and the children are being abused just by being there, and especially having their minor faces shown

POVICH IF WHAT I SAY IS NOT TRUE, STOP DOING THAT SHOW - you are creating hate for jewish people THEY HAVE been through enough! Povich would not care if every devout G-d fearing jew were killed then nobody would ever find out what judaism was,

evil evil man, stop being evil, stop hurting those babies,

stop gathering the genetic material of people who otherwise may never have submitted to having their DNA sequenced.

STOP STOP STOP
more people are finding out about you, you are sick and disgusting you dont believe in God

horrible man

[you dont have to believe me, study what all the religions say, the foundation documents then come back and tell me there isnt an undeclared religion, judaism, christianity, islam, hinduism ] this man is a monster
