Bernard Madoff gets maximum 150 years

Posted in Announcements, Entertainment, Interviews, Mug Shots, News with tags , , , , , , , on June 29, 2009 by Otto

NEW YORK – Convicted swindler Bernard Madoff was sentenced to 150 years in prison Monday for fraud so extensive that the judge said he needed to send a symbolic message to those who might imitate his fraud and to victims who need relief.

Applause broke out in the crowded Manhattan courtroom after U.S. District Judge Denny Chin issued the maximum sentence to the 71-year-old defendant, who said he sought no forgiveness and knew he must live “with this pain, this torment, for the rest of my life.”

Chin rejected a request by Madoff’s lawyer for leniency and said he disagreed that victims of the fraud were seeking mob vengeance.

“Here the message must be sent that Mr. Madoff’s crimes were extraordinarily evil and that this kind of manipulation of the system is not just a bloodless crime that takes place on paper, but one instead that takes a staggering toll,” Chin said.

The judge said the estimate that Madoff has cost his victims more than $13 billion was conservative because it did not include money from feeder funds.

“Objectively speaking, the fraud here was staggering,” he said.

Awesome, the scape goat of the financial industry is going to jail for life. We can all sleep easy now. AIG CEO Ed Liddy, not in jail, in your house seducing your mother..

Sarah Palin Confesses to Abortion Thoughts

Posted in Actors. LOL., Announcements, Comedy, Deaths, Entertainment, Interviews, News, War on April 25, 2009 by Otto

Sarah Palin spoke to an adoring crowd at a right-to-life dinner in Indiana on Thursday night. Her talk, covered by some cable news networks, was more personal than political. She confessed for the first time that she had fleetingly thought of having an abortion when she learned that her son, Trig, would be born with Down syndrome.

She said that she was on a trip out of state when she received the result of the amniocentesis test. “I thought, No one knows me here…. no one would ever know.”

“Plus, I was old,” she continued. “And I thought, ‘Very funny, God. My name’s Sarah, but my husband’s not Abraham, he’s Todd.'” At 44, she said, she had a hard time imagining changing diapers again, not to mention “putting down the BlackBerry and picking up the breast pump.”

She also worried that she would not love the child enough. “Believe it or not, I didn’t even know what a baby with Down syndrome was going to look like or feel like … I had to ask that my heart be filled up” with feeling for her unborn son. But everything changed the moment he was born. “My heart overflowed. I felt a love I had never felt before. He’s brought amazing, surprising happiness; he’s the best thing that has ever happened to me.”

Palin also promoted Alaska in her speech. She pointed out, on the day after Federal income taxes were due, that “Alaska is the only state in the nation with a negative tax rate, no income tax, no state sales tax, no state property tax.” She said she wanted to keep it that way because “I believe our families and small business can spend the money they earn better than the government can.” She also noted, repeating–and joking about–one of her most famous lines of the campaign, “You can actually see Russia from land here in Alaska.”

In her home state, Sarah Palin is having considerable trouble with the legislature. While she was speaking in Indiana, they rejected her pick for attorney general. Nine Republican lawmakers joined all of the legislature’s Democrats in a 35-23 vote against confirming Anchorage lawyer Wayne Anthony Ross to the state’s highest legal post. Ross was opposed by native groups and has been criticized for making offensive remarks about women and gays. Palin complained that his rejection was based on the “politics of personal destruction.”

At the right-to-life dinner, Palin, dressed all in black and looking thinner than she did during the fall campaign season, talked about her crazy year. Her son shipped off to Iraq, her daughter told her she was pregnant–and she ran for the vice-presidency. “I borrowed a few clothes and had a couple of sit-down interviews–oh, those went real well–and soon I felt the need to provide Tina Fey with some job security,” Palin said.

Would she do it again? “I have a feeling,” she declared, right after taking the podium, “that I will leave here with new energy and inspiration, and I will re-start my engine.”

Sarah Palin Blames Bloggers

Posted in Actors. LOL., Comedy, Entertainment, Interviews, News, Politics on April 24, 2009 by Otto

In an interview with the Juneau Empire, Governor Sarah Palin blamed the lies of the blogosphere and e-mails from members of the public (also known as constituent voices) for the defeat of Wayne Anthony Ross for Attorney General.

The vote was the first in state history to defeat an AG appointee and went down 35-23 last Thursday. Not only was Ross the first AG to not be confirmed, according to Legislative Research Services, it was the first time in state history a head of a state agency has failed to be confirmed by the Legislature. At the time of the vote, Palin was pandering, attending an anti-choice fundraiser in Indiana.

“A great problem was public lies were told about Mr. Ross,” Palin told the Juneau Empire.

Glad we can help, you demon from hell.

Levi: Court fight possible over son

Larry, I wanted to name the kid Bababooey, not Tripp, Gotcha!

ANCHORAGE (AP) — The father of Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin’s grandson said Wednesday he would be willing to go to court for custody of the child, but he hoped it wouldn’t come to that.

Levi Johnston said on CNN’s Larry King Live that he and 18-year-old Bristol Palin do not have a formal court agreement over visitation rights for their baby son, Tripp.

Bristol Palin, the governor’s oldest daughter, gave birth Dec. 27 and the unmarried teenage parents broke up soon after that. Johnston has claimed in several national TV interviews that Bristol has limited his access to the baby.

“I can go over there and see him,” Johnston said. “But it’s, now you know, it’s kind of an uncomfortable thing for me to go over there. You know, I want to be able to take him and that kind of thing, go do the father thing with him and I can’t.”

Johnston said he is not in a “big fight with the Palins.” He still likes the family and wants to work out an arrangment over Tripp, whom he said he hasn’t seen in a couple of weeks.

Obama Open to Prosecution of Officials Who Cleared Torture

Fine, Fine, I enjoy the Jonas Brothers!!!!

President Obama left open the door Tuesday for charges to be brought against Bush administration lawyers who justified harsh interrogation techniques, though he continued to argue that CIA agents who used those tactics should not be prosecuted.

The president showed wiggle room on the issue as he faces calls from Democratic lawmakers and organizations like the American Civil Liberties Union to support such charges. Asked about the possibility of prosecution related to the interrogation program, the president deferred to Attorney General Eric Holder.

“With respect to those who formulate those legal decisions, I would say that that is going to be more of a decision for the attorney general within the parameters of various laws,” Obama said, as he finished an Oval Office meeting with visiting King Abdullah of Jordan. “And I don’t want to prejudge that. … There are a host of very complicated issues involved there.”

FOX!

Finnaly a flip flop we can believe in. Of course they should be prosecuted. I have a feeling AG Holder rode Obama’s ass on this one. He has been wanting to get his claws on Bush since his hand hit that Bible. BTW: Torture does not work. You throw someone into a wall, drown them, or cover them in spiders they will say whatever you want them to say. Not tell the truth.

Now watch this drive!

Jindal to Cheney: Lay off Obama

Gov. Bobby Jindal (R-La.) suggested Thursday that former Vice President Dick Cheney should tone down his criticism of President Barack Obama.

Cheney has repeatedly criticized the president’s national security policy, saying recently on CNN’s “State of the Union” that Obama’s decisions “raise the risk to the American people of another attack.”

Asked to respond to Cheney’s remark during an interview ABC’s “Good Morning America,” Jindal said: “I don’t think we should question President Obama’s patriotism or his intentions.”

“I think Democrat or Republican, we should all agree that our current president, our former president would obviously want to do everything they could to keep us safe,” he said. “Let’s give the new administration a chance. Let’s not question their intentions. Let’s have a real debate on their policies.”

The Republican governor praised Obama for “showing more flexibility when it comes to Iraq than maybe some of the campaign rhetoric suggested.”

“I am, quite honestly, pleasantly surprised,” he said. “That’s the kind of pragmatism, listening to the commanders on the ground, I think is very important.”

POLITICO

Bobby, you dick! What did you get some advisers? Asshole. That was an excellent move politically. I can’t even spin this story to make you look like a buffoon! Dirty pool Bobby, dirty pool.
