Well I see where the esteemed Jack Ass Sean Penn got his idea for jailing news media who call the benevolent Hugo Chavez a dictator. Seems the owner of a Venezuelan TV station has been arrested because his TV station is a critic of Chavez. This comes on the heals of a story Thursday about how a critic of Chavez is being held without bail for being a critic, saying that “Venezuela has converted into a center of operations that facilitates the business of drug trafficking,”
In case you missed it, this is what the nimrod Penn said:
Every day, this elected leader is called a dictator here, and we just accept it, and accept it. . . And this is mainstream media, who should — truly, there should be a bar by which one goes to prison for these kinds of lies.
Look I am 100% in agreement that we need to drive these bastards out of office, but threats & crap like this? That’s unacceptable:
A propane gas line at the Charlottesville home of Rep. Tom Perriello’s brother was severed Tuesday after a self-identified “tea party” activist posted what he believed to be the Virginia Democrat’s address on a Web site and urged opponents to “drop by” to convey their opposition to his yes vote on the health bill.
All this does is feed into the media’s bias, it lets them paint all Republicans as crazy, violent extremists. And please, if you want to “drop by” to convey your opposition to a congressman, PLEASE do it at their office!!
Remember the old Schoolhouse Rock video on how a bill becomes a law? I think everyone should email it to Congress & the White House!
WOW he never ceases to amaze me:
President Obama said today that he is not too worried about the controversial “deem and pass” strategy being considered on Capitol Hill, and that members should not “pretend” that a vote, in whatever form it ends up taking, is anything other than a vote for or against reform.
“I don’t spend a lot of time worrying about what the procedural rules are in the House or Senate,” Obama said in an interview with Fox News’ Bret Baier, “What I can tell you is that the vote that’s taken in the House will be a vote for health care reform. And if people vote yes, whatever form that takes, that is going to be a vote for health care reform. And I don’t think we should pretend otherwise.”
UMMMM I’m sorry, I thought the Constitution was the law of the land? I guess maybe not in Obama’s F’d up world.
This is what the US Constitution says:
Section 7. All bills for raising revenue shall originate in the House of Representatives; but the Senate may propose or concur with amendments as on other Bills.
Every bill which shall have passed the House of Representatives and the Senate, shall, before it become a law, be presented to the President of the United States; if he approve he shall sign it, but if not he shall return it, with his objections to that House in which it shall have originated, who shall enter the objections at large on their journal, and proceed to reconsider it. If after such reconsideration two thirds of that House shall agree to pass the bill, it shall be sent, together with the objections, to the other House, by which it shall likewise be reconsidered, and if approved by two thirds of that House, it shall become a law. But in all such cases the votes of both Houses shall be determined by yeas and nays, and the names of the persons voting for and against the bill shall be entered on the journal of each House respectively. If any bill shall not be returned by the President within ten days (Sundays excepted) after it shall have been presented to him, the same shall be a law, in like manner as if he had signed it, unless the Congress by their adjournment prevent its return, in which case it shall not be a law.
Every order, resolution, or vote to which the concurrence of the Senate and House of Representatives may be necessary (except on a question of adjournment) shall be presented to the President of the United States; and before the same shall take effect, shall be approved by him, or being disapproved by him, shall be repassed by two thirds of the Senate and House of Representatives, according to the rules and limitations prescribed in the case of a bill.
So how does this Slaughter Rule work??? I guess I’m confused, those 3 years of law school are confusing me.
Lindsay Lohan is completely crazy & self absorbed. I love the E-Trade commercial with the milk-a-holic!!! I NEVER thought of Lindsay Lohan in the context of this commercial until her & her idiotic advisors decided to sue over it. Now if the called the girl Ego-a-holic Lindsay, I would have thought of Crazy Lohan.
I hope E-Trade stay strong & doesn’t give that nut a penny! GO E-TRADE BABY!! This law suit is why people hate lawyers!
May the Milk-a-holic commercial live on!
This is what her idiot lawyer had to say & the ad company’s response as well:
Lohan’s lawyer, Stephanie Ovadia, said the actress has the same single-name recognition as Oprah or Madonna.
“Many celebrities are known by one name only, and E-Trade is using that knowledge to profit,” Ovadia said.
“They used the name Lindsay,” Ovadia said. “They’re using her name as a parody of her life. Why didn’t they use the name Susan? This is a subliminal message. Everybody’s talking about it and saying it’s Lindsay Lohan.”
Ovadia wants an injunction to force the spot off the air, and the Lindsay camp wants every last copy of the commercial.
Chris Brown, a spokesman for Grey Group, which produced the spot, is throwing cold milk on the controversy, saying it “just used a popular baby name that happened to be the name of someone on the account team.”
Ovadia said E-Trade has violated Lohan’s rights under New York state civil-rights law and used her “name and characterization” in business without paying her or getting her approval.
UPDATE: I hope I don’t get sued for this post!
