We have become a nation of pansies ruled by traitors.
John Wayne is dead.
One hundred years ago these politicians that asked for our trust to handle the business of running this country and brought us to the brink of ruin would have been tried as traitors and executed.
Today they build multi-million dollar homes with high fences, drink their $10,000 bottles of wine with their cohorts who they were charged with the oversight of.
I know for a fact that an animal is more valuable than a tree, and a man is more valuable than than an animal. Yet the environmentalists give millions of dollars in legal bribes to get policies passed by these traitorous politicians and the animal rights groups are lining the pockets of Congressmen to insure they value the rights of animals over the rights of people.
Who will represent the working people of this country?
Is there one honorable man left in Washington DC?
The billionaires of this nation and others have successfully purchased the honor of our elected officials and are running amuck on this formerly great nation. To add insult to injury they run their business’s into the ground destroying the families of their employees all the while siphoning off millions for themselves and legally bribe our politicians with donations to tell us that to save our family from disaster, we have to give them billions more. All the while they live it up at the St. Regis Resort on the Monarch Beach, play golf, relax at the spa, eat the finest food and drink the most expensive wine.
The hard working people of this nation have worked their ass off to get where they are while carrying the load of the non-working, the taxes on everything in existence and the kids that they are trying to raise to be better off than they are. These working people are the ones that made this country great and they have suffered tremendously due to the treasonous acts of a few.
Now the people that want a handout have seemingly outnumbered the working people that would be ashamed to ask for help. So, the pansies of this country sell their soul to the government that has already borrowed against their souls to feed the elite rulers of the economy.
My Mom and Dad, who have worked their entire lives, retired early three weeks ago today due to the fact that Milwaukee Tool and Die Company, which has been an American business for decades, moved their plant to China. They have seen their retirement account, that they have saved by putting away a few dollars a week for their entire working lives, cut in half in the 21 days since they retired.
I asked my Mom if they were going to do something big with some of their retirement money just one month ago and she replied, “No, Were just going to draw $500 per month so we can pay the bills and leave the rest to you kids.” I told her thats ridiculous, take some of what you have and travel or do something you always wanted to do. We will be fine.
Now four weeks later 1/2 of their retirement money in question is gone.
Still politicians and executives conspire to take more all the while telling us if we do not give it things will get worse. We give and it gets worse anyway.
There’s an old saying.
If you give a man a fish you feed him for a day, but, if you teach a man to fish you feed him for a lifetime.
Well I have a new saying.
If you teach a man to fish and he comes tomorrow and asks you for another fish, He does not care if your children starve.
The people that live off others have destroyed this once great nation for the people that work and the people that will not work have brought the people that do to their knees. They have nothing left to give but still they are asked for more and threatened that they are only patriotic if they pay more taxes.
Joe Biden believes it is patriotic to pay more money in taxes then logically wouldn’t it be unpatriotic to ask for handouts from the public till. Congressman Joe Biden is the number one enemy of the American Family.
Barack Obama promises to raise taxes even more and he is leading in the polls. We have become a nation of pansies ruled by traitors. Feed these incompetent leaders more to waste? Congressman Barack Obama is the number one enemy of unborn American Citizens.
Michelle Obama said for the first time in her life she was proud of her country. For the first time in my life I am NOT proud of my country.
We have become a nation of pansies ruled by traitors.
John Wayne is dead.
A week at the spa can ease the pain of a bailout for callous, overpaid executives.
When the going gets tough, the tough get pedicures.
As most Americans spent the last few weeks nervously checking the markets and watching their retirement accounts dwindle away the AIG folks celebrated their 85 billion taxpayer funded windfall at St. Regis Resort, Monarch Beach
Just days after the federal government committed $85 billion of taxpayers’ money to a bailout of insurance giant AIG last month, senior execs from the troubled company headed to Southern California’s ultra-swanky St. Regis Resort in Monarch Beach for a week of wining and dining top salespeople.
House panel rebukes former CEOs of AIG “They had a conference here,” resort spokeswoman Kristi Turek confirmed Tuesday, “but we don’t get into details of what they did during that time.”
As it happens, congressional investigators released AIG documents earlier in the day showing that the company paid more than $440,000 for the event, including nearly $200,000 for rooms, $150,000 for meals, $23,000 in spa charges and almost $7,000 for golf outings.
The post-bailout getaway for American International Group execs is just one of a series of jaw-dropping revelations to emerge this week about the behavior of some of the companies involved in the financial crisis.
Among other things we now know:
* AIG tried to hide negative information about its condition from auditors before the bailout plan took shape, according to documents obtained by Rep. Henry Waxman (D-Beverly Hills), who heads the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee.
* As early as March, regulators sent a letter to AIG warning the company about its lack of transparency and ability to oversee financial products.
* Just days before Lehman Bros. Holding Inc. filed for bankruptcy protection last month, the company altered its executive pay plan to give senior managers multimillion-dollar bonuses regardless of recent losses.
* Joseph Cassano, the Lehman exec in charge of the company’s financial products division, received more than $280 million over the last eight years, according to Waxman. Even after he was shown the door in February, Cassano was placed on a $1 million-a-month consulting retainer.
“This is the new Enron,” said Gonzalo Freixes, a professor at UCLA’s Anderson School of Management who specializes in business ethics. “A lot of people probably thought we were past this kind of thing.”
We aren’t, as is becoming increasingly clear with each new peek under Wall Street’s hood. AIG’s St. Regis wing-ding is a classic example of the financial industry’s misplaced priorities.
“Situated high on a bluff overlooking the majestic Pacific Ocean, stands a landmark resort of legendary proportions,” St. Regis’ website gushes. “Located midway between Los Angeles and San Diego, the Tuscan-inspired St. Regis Resort, Monarch Beach is devoted to the pursuit of service and elegance with a seamless blend of comfort and technology.”
This is where you go right after hitting up taxpayers for $85 billion in cash?
An expense form for AIG’s stay at the resort shows that most rooms booked by the company cost between $250 and $425 a night. The Presidential Suite, which normally goes for $3,200, was also booked for five nights.
Turek, the resort spokeswoman, said the nearly $500,000 spent by AIG “was a little above average” for a corporate group using the facility.
As Norton described it, AIG had invited about 100 of its top salespeople to stay at the St. Regis for a week of meetings and motivational events — and, as the company’s invoice shows, thousands of dollars’ worth of spa and salon amenities.
Sarah Palin portrayed Barack Obama as a dishonest politician and a risky choice for president Tuesday as she wrapped up a two-day campaign swing through Florida.
She also turned toward the economy, promising that she and Republican presidential candidate John McCain would implement a federal spending freeze and balance the nation’s budget.
Campaigning in Pensacola, Florida, Ms. Palin for the third time in three days linked Mr. Obama to a 1960s radical who helped plan bombings of the Pentagon and U.S. Capitol. She said Mr. Obama had not been truthful about his relationship with William Ayers, a university professor in Chicago who was a founding member of the Weather Underground.
In 1995, Mr. Obama was introduced as a state Senate candidate at a political gathering at Mr. Ayers’ home, one of the earliest meetings of Mr. Obama’s political career. The men also served together on a community education board.
Mr. Obama has said the two were mere acquaintances. News organizations concluded that probably understates their relationship but found no evidence that the men were close. Mr. Obama has denounced Mr. Ayers’ radical activities and has said he was unaware of Mr. Ayers’ background.
Ms. Palin, the vice presidential candidate, said she didn’t believe it.
“Wait a minute there,” she told fans. “You mean to tell me he doesn’t know he launched his political career in the living room of a domestic terrorist?”
Her backdrop was five American flags and the St. Johns River. On a balcony, supporters had hung a banner saying, “I live on a budget, so should my government.”
Sarah Palin continues to bring up the issues with Barack Obama’s associations while the media tries to ignore the obvious questions the non-star-struck American people are asking.
There has been much talk of Barack Obama’s ties with terrorists and his relationship with William Ayers so I did a little research today to find out who he is.
Who is William Ayers?
William Charles “Bill” Ayers (born 26 December 1944) is an American elementary education theorist and former leading 1960s anti-war activist. He is known for being a domestic terrorist in the 1960s and 1970s as well as his current work in education reform, curriculum, and instruction. In 1969 he co-founded the violent radical left organization the Weather Underground which was active during the 1960s and 1970s. He is now a professor in the College of Education at the University of Illinois at Chicago, holding the honor of Distinguished Professor.
Ayers became involved in the New Left and the Students for a Democratic Society (SDS).He rose to national prominence as an SDS leader in 1968 and 1969. As head of an SDS regional group, the “Jesse James Gang”, Ayers made decisive contributions to the Weatherman orientation toward militancy. The group Ayers headed in Detroit, Michigan became one of the earliest gatherings of what became the Weatherman.
Between the 1968 Democratic National Convention in Chicago and the June 1969 SDS convention, Ayers became a prominent leader of the group, which arose as a result of a schism in SDS. “During that time his infatuation with street fighting grew and he developed a language of confrontational militancy that became more and more pronounced over the year 1969″, disaffected former Weatherman member Cathy Wilkerson wrote in 2001. Ayers had previously become a roommate of Terry Robbins, a fellow militant, Wilkerson wrote. Robbins would later be killed while making a bomb.
Statue dedicated to riot police casualties
In June 1969, the Weatherman took control of the SDS at its national convention, where Ayers was elected Education Secretary. Later in 1969, Ayers participated in planting a bomb at a statue dedicated to riot police casualties in the 1886 Haymarket Riot confrontation between labor supporters and the police. The blast broke almost 100 windows and blew pieces of the statue onto the nearby Kennedy Expressway. The statue was rebuilt and unveiled on May 4, 1970, and blown up again by other Weathermen on October 6, 1970. Rebuilding it yet again, the city posted a 24-hour police guard to prevent another blast. Ayers participated in the Days of Rage riot in Chicago in October 1969, and in December was at the “War Council” meeting in Flint, Michigan. Larry Grathwohl, an FBI informant in the Weatherman group from the fall of 1969 to the spring of 1970, thought that “Ayers, along with Bernardine Dohrn, probably had the most authority within the Weatherman”.
In 1970 he “went underground” with several associates after the Greenwich Village townhouse explosion, in which Weatherman member Ted Gold, Ayers’ close friend Terry Robbins, and Ayers’ girlfriend, Diana Oughton, were killed when a nail bomb (an anti-personnel device) they were assembling exploded. Kathy Boudin and Cathy Wilkerson survived the blast.
Ayers participated in the bombings of New York City Police Headquarters in 1970, the United States Capitol building in 1971, and The Pentagon in 1972, as he noted in his 2001 book, Fugitive Days. Because of a water leak caused by the Pentagon bombing, aerial bombardments during the Vietnam War had to be halted for several days. Ayers writes:
Although the bomb that rocked the Pentagon was itsy-bitsy – weighing close to two pounds – it caused ‘tens of thousands of dollars’ of damage. The operation cost under $500, and no one was killed or even hurt.
While underground, he and fellow member Bernardine Dohrn married, and the two remained fugitives together, changing identities, jobs and locations. By 1976 or 1977, with federal charges against both fugitives dropped due to prosecutorial misconduct. The couple turned themselves in to authorities in 1980. Ayers and Dohrn later became legal guardians to the son of former Weathermen David Gilbert and Kathy Boudin after the boy’s parents were convicted and sent to prison for their part in the Brinks Robbery of 1981.
In 2001, Ayers published Fugitive Days: A Memoir, which he explained in part as an attempt to answer the questions of Kathy Boudin’s son, and his speculation that Diana Oughton died trying to stop the Greenwich Village bomb makers. Some have questioned the truth, accuracy, and tone of the book. Brent Staples wrote for The New York Times Book Review that “Ayers reminds us often that he can’t tell everything without endangering people involved in the story. Historian Jesse Lemisch, himself a former member of SDS, contrasted Ayers’ recollections with those of other former members of Weatherman and has alleged serious factual errors. Ayers, in the foreword to his book, states that it was written as his personal memories and impressions over time, not a scholarly research project.
Barack Obama launched his political career at William Ayres house. He was invited to a meeting attended by several former members and friends of the terrorist groups that William Ayers ran. Barack Obama announced his candidacy for the Virginia Senate that night and collected campaign donations.
Barack has since proclaimed that he and Ayres were mere acquaintances and that he knew nothing of his involvement in several bombings of American targets including the pentagon. Clearly a lie, the media has virtually ignored this story and has left it up to the bloggers to find out the truth. Update
Sarah Palins speech has forced the media to finally report on this story even though they have had this information for some time and sat on it. Here’s a clip from CNN….
Barack Obama has been asked about this guy at least three times and lied each time.
These idiots killed more of their own trying to build their bombs than they did their targets. Luckily they were a bunch of fools.
Just a reminder: in 2001, for an article in Chicago Magazine, Barack Obama’s friend William Ayers proudly allowed himself to be photographed stepping on a United States flag.
The article was appropriately titled: No Regrets, and I’ve saved a copy of it in case it suddenly disappears, as articles exposing Obama’s associates often do.
One of Ayers victims released a statement.
ARLINGTON, VA — Today, John M. Murtagh made the following statement on Barack Obama’s relationship with William Ayers:
“When I was 9 years-old the Weather Underground, the terrorist group founded by Barack Obama’s friend William Ayers, firebombed my house. Barack Obama has dismissed concerns about his relationship with Ayers by noting that he was only a child when Ayers was planting bombs at the Pentagon and the U.S. Capitol. But Ayers has never apologized for his crimes, he has reveled in them, expressing regret only for the fact that he didn’t do more.
“While Barack Obama once downplayed his relationship with Ayers, today his campaign took that deceit one step further. Barack Obama now denies he was even aware of his friend’s violent past when, in 1995, Ayers hosted a party launching Obama’s political career. Given Ayers’ celebrity status among the left, it’s difficult to believe. The question remains: what did Obama know, and when did he know it? When did Obama learn the truth about his friend? Barack Obama helped Ayers promote his book in 1997, served on charitable boards with him through 2002, and regularly exchanged emails and phone calls with him through 2005. At what point did Barack Obama discover that his friend was an unrepentant terrorist? And if he is so repulsed by the acts of terror committed by William Ayers, why did the relationship continue? Any honest accounting by Barack Obama will necessarily cast further doubt on his judgment and his fitness to serve as commander in chief.
“Barack Obama may have been a child when William Ayers was plotting attacks against U.S. targets — but I was one of those targets. Barack Obama’s friend tried to kill my family.”
Barack Obama Endorses William Ayers Book
We’ve all heard that they served on the same committees and boards, and the media yawns at this. However, if only they would dig just a little they would find that things are deep even just below the surface.
In 1997, Obama gave Ayer’s book rave reviews!
Bill Ayers and Barack Obama shared an office. Ayers’ Small Schools Workshop, which Barack Obama directed almost 2 million dollars to is located at 115 S. Sangamon Street, Chicago, Illinois 60607 (Note the link is to a year 2000 version of their website). Here’s a screen grab from the website’s footer:
In 1998, the address for the Chicago Annenberg Challenge, where Obama presumably worked, was 115 S. Sangamon Street, Chicago, Illinois 60607. This is a copy of their 1998 tax return with that address.
I had as great Uncle that lied to everyone he met every day of his life. He was a great story teller and I could listen to him tell his lies for hours all the while knowing that nothing that came out of his mouth was the truth. He was harmless. Barack wants to be our President.
Isn’t it pretty important that one of Obama’s best friends is a unrepentant domestic terrorist, socialist that hates America. What did bill Ayres see in a young Obama that inspired him to take him under his wing and groom him to be President?
Barack Obama lies again and “We the Bloggers” find the truth. The media still ignores.
Who is Kathy Boudin?
In the 1960s and 1970s, Boudin became heavily involved with the Weather Underground, which described themselves as a “fifth column” of the Viet Cong and the North Vietnamese Army. The Weathermen used bombs to vandalize the Pentagon, the US Capitol, the New York Police Benevolent Association, the New York Board of Corrections, as well as the offices of multinational companies. Boudin, along with Cathy Wilkerson, was a survivor of the 1970 Greenwich Village townhouse explosion, the premature detonation of a nail bomb that had been intended for a soldiers’ dance at Fort Dix, New Jersey. Boudin was 27 at the time. Both women were awaiting trial, out on bond for their alleged actions in Days of Rage in Chicago several months earlier. Wilkerson had been released on a $20,000 bond and Boudin was out on a $40,000 bond.
A declassified FBI report on foreign contacts of the Weather Underground Organization produced by the FBI’s Chicago Field Office reported that, “On February 10, 1976, a source in a position to possess such information advised that Leonard Boudin … had indicated to a friend that Kathie was presently in Cuba.” Kathy Boudin’s father had connections directly to Fidel Castro: Leonard Boudin was Castro’s lawyer.
Boudin was granted parole on August 20, 2003 in her third parole hearing, and released from Bedford Hills Correctional Facility on September 17, 2003. She accepted a job in the H.I.V./AIDS Clinic at St. Luke’s-Roosevelt Hospital Center, meeting the work provisions of parole that required active job prospects
Who is Diana Oughton?
In 1966, Diana Oughton left Philadelphia for Ann Arbor, Michigan to enroll in the University of Michigan Graduate School of Education, seeking her Master’s degree in teaching. Oughton dedicated herself to the school and teaching and designed a fund-raising button that read, CHILDREN ARE ONLY NEWER PEOPLE. It was at CCS that Diana Oughton met Bill Ayers. The two fell in love and soon began living together. In 1968, when the school ran into severe problems and lost its funding, Oughton and Ayers sought to become active elsewhere in the community.
In 1969, Oughton and Ayers joined the Weathermen. At this time, protests became more violent and radical than they had been in SDS. Part of this move towards greater violence was seen during the “Days of Rage” in Chicago, taking place on October 8-11 of 1969. One purpose of the “Days of Rage” was to create an image of strength and determination that would win converts to revolutionary violence. Diana Oughton was one of the people arrested in October of 1969 in Chicago; her bail was set at $5,000, which her father came up from Dwight to pay. After she was released, Mr. Oughton dropped his daughter off at a church where she was meeting up with other Weathermen; shortly afterwards, police raided the church and arrested 43 members of the group. Oughton managed to escape by jumping out of a window.
After the “Days of Rage”, the group became increasingly more violent.
On Monday, March 2, 1970, in Keene, New Hampshire, a Weatherman purchased two 50-pound cases of dynamite from the New England Explosives Corporation. Sometime that week, the dynamite was moved from Keene to Greenwich Village, New York where it was taken to the house at 18 West Eleventh Street. Diana Oughton left Detroit and joined the group at the house. On Friday of the same week, Oughton and Terry Robbins were in the basement assembling a bomb when it detonated. Cathy Wilkerson, who was in the townhouse at the time, describes her experience during the explosion, “the idea that Terry and Diana were both in the subbasement overwhelmed everything else. As I forced my attention there and to them, my lungs expanded instantaneously to draw in air and dust so I could call out.”
Wilkerson and Kathy Boudin, another Weatherman in the townhouse at the time, were the only two to escape. When they ran out into the street, someone asked if there was anyone else in the house. Thinking that Ted Gold, the other Weatherman in the townhouse, had gone to the store, Wilkerson replied that no, there was no one left inside. She knew that Terry and Diana were gone.
Four days after the explosion, detectives found some of Oughton’s remains near a workbench in the rubble-filled basement of the devastated townhouse. At the end of another week, a detective discovered the tip of the little finger from the right hand. A print taken by a police department expert was matched later that day with a set of Oughton’s prints in the Washington files of the F.B.I. The prints they had on file were from Oughton’s arrest in Chicago on October 9, 1969 during the Days of Rage.
William Ayers today….
Ayers’s political views are as radical now as they were in the 1970s. “Viva President Chavez!” he exclaimed in a speech in Venezuela in 2006, in which he also declared, “education is the motor-force of revolution.”
From his prestigious and safe university position, Ayers has been teaching teachers and students in rebellion against American capitalism and what he calls “imperialism” and “oppression. ” The code words for the Ayers curriculum are “social justice,” a “transformative” vision, “critical pedagogy,” “liberation, ” “capitalist injustices,” “critical race theory,” “queer theory,” and of course multiculturalism and feminism.
That language is typical in the readings that Ayers assigns in his university courses. He admits he is a “communist street fighter” who has been influenced by Karl Marx, as well as Che, Ho and Malcolm X.
Ayers speaks openly of his desire to use America’s public school classrooms to train a generation of revolutionaries who will overturn the U.S. social and economic regime. He teaches that America is oppressive and unjust, socialism is the solution, and wealth and resources should be redistributed.
Daily Presidential Tracking Poll Saturday, November 01, 2008
The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Wednesday shows Barack Obama attracting 50% of the vote nationwide while John McCain earns 47%. This is the first time McCain has been within three points of Obama in more than a month and the first time his support has topped 46% since September 24. One percent (1%) of voters prefer a third-party option and 2% are undecided.
McCain’s lead in Georgia is down to five points while Obama has a double digit lead in Minnesota. Today, at noon Eastern, new data will be released for North Carolina. Later, result will be posted on the race in Iowa and New Hampshire. Additional state polling will be released over the weekend.
Thirty-six percent (36%) of voters have already cast their ballots or plan to vote early this year. That figure includes 37% of Obama supporters and 35% of those for McCain. Forty-nine percent (49%) of African-American voters say they will be voting early. Voters not affiliated with either major party are far less likely to vote early than partisans.
If Barack Obama wins its clearly because of the women voters of this country. A +16 point lead for female and behind -3 points in male. 19% is a huge difference. Seems the women of this country are loving the Obama Koolaide.
McCain’s Health Insurance Rebate and Barack’s Government Controlled Health Care Plan seems to be mute points with many voters saying they do not understand fully either canidates plan.
Something I’ve been thinking about. The press takes the polls and reports the polls. The press also receives most all the millions of dollars in donations that are made to the candidates, obviously it is spent mostly on ads on their networks.
With this knowledge one can wonder if the press manipulates the numbers as to bring the most donations and advertising money in. Seems every few days they report a new surge in one or the others percentage, giving the one they report to be behind the feeling to spend a few million more.
No, I guess I’m wrong, these upright patriotic citizens with the press would never do anything like that would they?

Update October 7, 11:00 pm Just after the debate
My imediate thoughts while I wait for my copy of the debate….
John McCain is far better prepared to run the military.
I do not want Congress to run health care. I have never seen anything the government gets involved with other than the military that succeeds. Remember these are the same traitors that ran our financial sector. Nice job idiots.
Barack Obama mentioned again he had a single Mom on food stamps. Yet he went to Harvard. I got a student loan, it was $1,250 per semester. Undergraduate tuition and room and board fees will rise 7.2 percent in 1984 to $14,000–the lowest percentage increase in 11 years–University officials said. Thats $52,000 for a 4 year degree. If his Mom was on food stamps her income couldn’t be more than $7,500 per year. Who paid his tuition?
Why didn’t McCain go after Obama on his energy goals of America? Barack’s only plan seems to be to invest billions in wind and solar that might be able to help in about 50 years but “We the People” need gas to get to work tomorrow.
Barack mentioned that we have spent 700 billion on the war in Iraq. Interesting that is the under-reported cost of the bailout and the amount of money we spend on non-made-in-America oil per year.
Barack mentioned this was “the richest country in the world.” Is that still true with the 700 billion dollars going to foreign countries per year for oil and the 700 billion dollar boondoggle with the bailout?
Barack reminds me of a used car salesman promising everything to everyone just to get through the election. He is truly as gifted of a salesman as I have encountered but simple economics explains his tax plan as disaster.
Simply put, Even if Barack Obama only raises taxes on the rich, these are our employers and I don’t for-see getting a raise if my employer is taxed into the poor house. Will I get satisfaction in the rich people “paying what they deserve” if my company leaves the country or goes bankrupt and I am left looking for another job from another of Barack’s targeted “tax the rich scheme.”
Congress wastes trillions. Why hope anyone pays them more?
ITS HERE!!! Enjoy!

Most Feared UFC Star Kimbo Slice TKO’d by fill-in EliteXC fighter Seth Petruzelli in just 14 seconds Saturday night, handing the former street fighter his first mixed martial arts loss.
With a short right shot to the left cheek that any average southern girl would have shrugged off and beat your ass, Seth Petruzelli drops the rising UFC star faster than the Boston Womens Shelter axed Sandra Bernhard.
Petruzelli, 28, had been slated to fight on the undercard against Aaron Rosa at the BankAtlantic Center. But he was bumped up to the heavyweight main event of the EliteXC “CBS Saturday Night Fights” card when Ken Shamrock was sidelined for needing six stitches over his left eye when he was bumping heads warming up earlier in the day.
OJ Simpson’s lawyer says his client is extremely upset over being found guilty on all charges of kidnapping, armed robbery and assault with a deadly weapon.
Outside the court, the American football legend’s lawyer, Yale Galanter, suggested his client had paid the price for his notoriety, confirming an appeal against the verdict would be launched.
Mr Galanter told waiting journalists how his client was dealing with the verdict.
“He’s extremely upset, extremely emotional, but it is something that was expected,” he said.
“Definitely someone like OJ Simpson, everyone has a fixed opinion of him and it’s troubling.
“I wasn’t surprised.”
A jury in the United States found Simpson guilty on all charges 13 years to the day after Simpson was acquitted of murdering his ex-wife and her friend.
The judge refused a request to grant Simpson bail pending sentencing in December when he could face life imprisonment.
One of the most famous American football players of his generation during a glittering 1970s career, Simpson was the prime suspect in the brutal murders of his ex-wife Nicole and her friend Ron Goldman in 1994.
Nicole Brown Simpson, who had divorced Simpson in 1992 citing his “abusive behavior”, was attacked so savagely she was almost decapitated.
Simpson, who has always vehemently denied the killings, was acquitted of murder after a racially charged Los Angeles trial in 1995, a verdict that was greeted with widespread outrage across America.
Simpson was subsequently found liable for the deaths in a 1997 civil suit and was ordered to pay damages to the victims’ families totaling $US33.5 million ($34.1 million). He has repeatedly said he will not pay the settlement.
Simpson now lives in Florida, where his home and NFL pension reported to be worth $US300,000 a year are protected from damages claims.
Simpson triggered widespread revulsion in 2006 after plans to publish a book If I Did It, in which he presented a theory of how Brown and Goldman might have been slain by the murderer, emerged.
The book’s publishers later cancelled the book following the outcry.
Major difference between the trial 13 years ago and this one…. Live Witnesses.
Ventriloquist Jeff Dunham’s advertisement based on his popular comedy skit, “Achmed the Dead Terrorist,” was scrubbed from South African TV because they say it mocks Islam.
The ringtone was taken from a puppet routine performed by Dunham, in a TV special on Comedy Central. A 10-minute clip of the comedian’s routine that was posted on YouTube has been viewed more than 67 million times since April.
But the government of South Africa doesn’t think it’s funny. According to iafrica.com, South Africa’s Advertising Standards Authority (ASA) ruled that a GloMobile ringtone commercial featuring Dunham and his puppet was offensive to Muslims.
The commercial depicts Dunham holding his skeletal puppet, Achmed, dressed with a white cloth around his head and demanding that the audience keep quiet, uttering, “Silence! I will kill you!”
Here’s the video.
Not sure why this mocks Islam, seems to me it mocks terrorists. Maybe Muslims should channel their outrage to something more outrageous, like maybe…. Islamic terrorists killing people of all other faiths all over the world.
