Why Give Roman Polanski A Pass?

free polanski

What in the hell are people thinking?  If Michael Vick were to have fled the country after killing those dogs would we have a flood of people protesting against his extradition in order to face the music?  Of course not!  I mean people are opposed to the man actually working again, let alone getting away without punishment.

Yet, Roman Polanski actually has a gaggle of people crying foul about this disgusting pedophile being extradited to face the music finally for raping a 13 year old girl.  Now I don’t know about anyone else but hasn’t this man been allowed to be on the run for far too long?  I mean he has pretty much lived his freaking life.  And just now we want to attempt to nab him.  HA!

I understand that his victim no longer wishes to see him get justice for what he did and hey those are her views.  But you know what; she isn’t the one who decides whether or not this perv gets what he deserves.  Maybe she has finally made peace in her life with what occurred and doesn’t want to drudge up the past.  But that doesn’t mean that he should pay no penalty.

Now back to this gaggle of people protesting.  Their main complaint is that Mr. Polanski is such a great director and so talented that he shouldn’t have to worry about those skeletons from his past.  And I have also heard that his mother was killed in a concentration camp.  As if any of this matters.  It didn’t matter to Texas that a man was clearly mentally disabled when they put him to death for his crimes.  So why does it matter that he has had adversities in his past.  Haven’t we all?

I don’t think it is about the statute of limitations on the crime since he did plead guilty.  By admitting guilt he was forgoing the need for a trial.  All that was left was the put the dude behind bars like any other criminal.  I see this as a serious double standard.  Maybe other rapists or pedophiles never intend to rape or “seduce” any more children either.  And maybe they are skilled at their profession, so why should they have to pay for their crimes?

I guess the hypocrisy gets me.  We cry about the fact that so many perverts do very little time after assaulting children.  Then turn around and want to make exceptions for those we see as somehow better than the run of the mill criminal.  Would he be receiving this same treatment if he were let’s say, Spike Lee?  Would that guy get a pass?

We know this guy couldn’t even get a pass from people when he put it straight to Clint Eastwood about his portrayal of WWII.  People wanted to string him up for his comments to Clint.  But who is above the law?  Who can obstruct justice without as much as a blink of an eye?  Where is the outrage?  Where is the disgust at what he did?

I guess it is just me who thinks that we should NOT look lightly upon these perverts who can and will destroy lives when given the chance.  People say that he hasn’t done this again, but how do we know for sure.  He might have left a trail of 13 year old victims around Europe who were either too afraid to tell or cowed out of it.

Maybe having equality could start with the little things such as making sure that you receive the same punishment for your crime no matter the criminals, race, creed, wealth or religion.  But we know that is just wishful thinking.   SOME of those with status will always be able to skirt justice.  Because it is people who wish they were like them, who will allow them this privilege.   If you feel that he shouldn’t have to face the music, why?

Obama Did What?

huh

Here is a reply to a person named Stephen Frazier, who seems to think that he is going to give me a nice little list of things Obama has done to stir so much anger from the right.  Well here is where you can see his list and below is my reply to it.  And just to let you know ahead of time I add in when Bush did the same thing or if he did something similar or worse or if it was him altogether in order to show that no Republican, right wingers or tea party folks protested then, so why now.

I am glad you decided to TRY and show me what you think is the problem.  Let’s look at them shall we?

  1. FALSE, Obama did NOT take over the auto industry.  If I give you a loan for your business if it is failing did I take over your business?  If they had borrowed money from the banks (had they not been failing too) would the bank now own the auto industry?  Of course not!  This is just a bunch of bullshit in order to manufacture phony outrage.  When Bush poured all that TARP money into the banks, did he then take over the banks?  Yeah, OK, that was put to rest!
  2. Van Jones was NOT a former communist!  He was associated with a Marxist association which does not mean that he IS a Marxist.  Not to mention there is a DIFFERENCE between a communist, Marxist and socialist, in case you didn’t know, they are NOT interchangeable.  A lot of the Republican Party members are affiliated with KKK members does NOT make them KKK members.  So let’s be real.  Also, what is so whacko about being an environmentalist?  I don’t understand that.  The only think I can see that COULD be a problem is that he signed on to the 911 truth crap.  OK AND!  You have so many of the Republicans that are signed on to the “birther” movement, should they step down?  There is nothing in his past that makes this a reason to protest and call names.
  3. Steve Rattner who WAS the special appointee for the automobile industry was one of the large investors with Cerberus who was over Chrysler.  I still haven’t found anywhere where HE SAID that he knew nothing of the car industry.  But let’s just say he did say that.  Well it doesn’t matter since he has been replaced by Ron Bloom, a former union official.  Does he know anything about the auto industry?  And is this a big enough issue to run out with a sign calling Obama a lyin’ African?  What does Obama being African have to do with this appointee?  Hmm, I’d say NOTHING!  How about you?
  4. For one thing he is NOT a czar!  He was confirmed as Director of the Office of Science and Technology Policy on March 19, 2009 by a unanimous vote in the Senate.  And he NEVER said that trees and animals had rights such as humans.  Stop drinking the FOX noise kool aid.  It is rotting your brains.  And how come there isn’t any other verification of this man saying or doing any of these things except on right wing blogs and Fox noise?  Wouldn’t he have any publications that say this?  I mean the man is the founding chair of the advisory board for a quarterly journal published by MIT Press, and according to wikipedia has written and lectured extensively on the topic of climate change.  So shouldn’t I be able to find this crap you speak of?
  5. Oh for heavens sake!  So I guess we should just continue to pollute and pretend that it won’t catch up with us.  I guess we should let the polluters tell us what they should have to do or how much they should pay for polluting as it was under Bush.  And we wonder why global warming is accelerating.  Cap and trade will add $1761 per family per year, according to best sources.  And this is too much to handle?  Bush tax cuts cost 3.4 TRILLION dollars.  Where were you on that one?  Where were any of these people?  In fact the middle class is the one picking up that tab, was that OK by you and all of these angries.  Who just so happened NOT to be angry about that.
  6. You are knee deep in FOX noises ass aren’t you?  Well anyhow, can you say FALSE?  Has government run health care nationalized anything YET?  And we have plenty of nationalized health care going on right now.  Do you think we should cut them off too?  This list is bullshit.  I have shot down all of your phony outrageous claims that it looks like you took directly out of Glen Becks ass.  Well just to let you know, nationalized health care hasn’t done in any nation who has it.  Not to mention Bush’s tax cuts cost TWICE as much as any national health care.  Does this matter?  If it does then where were all the protests for Bush?  Wasn’t interested then?  Interesting that you think that government option would obliterate the private industry.  Did USPS stop Fedex or UPS?  Did public school shut down private schools?  How ridiculous!  And if these companies can’t compete, even though they are making RECORD PROFITS, then they need to shut down.
  7. Now I can see why they say that FOX news watchers are stupid.  Anyhow, Card check (also called majority sign-up) is a method for American employees to organize into a labor union in which a majority of employees in a bargaining unit sign authorization forms, or “cards,” stating they wish to be represented by the union.  Courtesy of Wikipedia!  You might want to try a bit of research as it goes a long way.   It has NOTHING to do with forcing anyone to USE union labor.  God, will the stupidity ever stop?
  8. A stimulus package which was already handed down by Bush?  Is that the stimulus you’re talking about?  Where did the money problem which he needed a stimulus for come from?  Were you concerned with WHERE the debt came from?  Were you concerned with the debt when Bush was making it with all the tax cuts?  Were any of these people caring about the deficit and debt while it was being created?  Not one phony ass bit!  This is too pathetic.  Point the finger at everyone else but the culprit, good going!  And again where were the protests to stop Bush from creating these deficits that our children are going to be saddled with?
  9. So now people are angry and protesting because he is doing the same exact thing the last President did which no one saw fault with at the time?  Man you are getting desperate here.  I didn’t see one protest or angry outburst from people who consider themselves Republicans, right wing or conservatives.  Why is that?  They didn’t care at the time?  Or did Obama somehow make it “different”?
  10. Please, you have a couple of people go around to hundreds of ACORN offices trying to peddle this scenario and you get two hits and that makes them the MOST corrupt.  By these standards the Bush Administration must be the MOST corrupt for allowing prisoners to be tortured under their watch or something to that affect.  And not distance themselves from the whole army not just the troops who did the dirt.
  11. I guess this one should be number 11.  Finally one I can say you are sooooo right!  I agree, but is this really enough to run out with picket signs yelling about a lying African and showing this man as an African which doctor?  Really, come on now!
  12. Do you think that companies who are failing and falling to the ground and begging for handouts should continue to pay their execs millions of dollars?  WOW that is something.  I do agree with this legislation.  And guess what, the companies who don’t want to have the pay capped don’t have to accept the handout either.  It isn’t like they are saying that EVERY company has to cap pay for execs.  Only companies who are begging for money.  Because the way I see it, if you have money to pay execs millions then you obviously don’t need to be begging for my hard earned tax dollars.  And I believe that if the bill said that people begging for welfare can’t be sitting in a million dollar home and driving a Cadillac to the welfare office can’t have welfare you’d be singing the praises of that on.  Oh yeah, that bill passed with flying colors back with Reagan and his welfare queens!  So I guess it is OK for the needy just NOT the rich needy.  LOL!

Please by all means carry it where ever you want!  You should have been more careful before opening your mouth.  As we see you don’t even have a grasp on what you are talking about.  You seem to suck in a lot of garbage only to spew it out in worse condition than you took it in.  I WILL be posting this to all of my readers as well and probably very few watch FOX so we won’t have to worry about them getting ALL the facts wrong such as yourself.  Thanks for giving me a good laugh today.

Nothing But The Facts Please

i_see_dumb_people

Here is a reply to a comment that I got on my post “Is disagreeing with Obama Racism“, that I just feel deserves its own post.  Check out the comment, oh and I just love the “Mr. Sentinel”.

Stephen Frazier,

Don’t be so thick in the brain or is it brainless. Anyhow, I never chided anyone for asking Obama what he has done that is not a problem. The people I mention are NOT asking what he has or hasn’t done. They are saying that he has ruined the country. And I asked and will ask it again, what has he done that ruins the country?

You ask me to explain how Bush stole our freedom,  I told you that he did so with the Patriot Act? Oh, you must not know what is in the Patriot Act, so therefore you needed me to go even further and make a list for you. Well, like I tell my son, get the information, it is free and helps you learn. There is nothing worse than a person who refuses to educate themselves.

You want to know why people say “we want our country back” and wonder what that means. Well, when the people feel that politicians are too powerful and unresponsive, WE feel that we have lost control of the country and we want it back. Get it?” Why don’t you explain exactly what the Obama government has done to be too powerful?

What laws, bills or other things have been pushed through the senate and house by Obama that would make the government any more powerful than it was under Bush? I keep asking and getting nothing. So it makes me believe that there is another reason to ask for the country back.

So to you the government was third in line to help Louisiana so therefore it was OK for nothing to get done for people who were suffering and dying.  You are a serious piece of work, acting as if the government being third in line is an excuse. It doesn’t!

The state of Louisiana Governor declared a state of emergency on Aug 26 then asked Bush to declare a federal state of emergency the next day. Governor Blanco requested help again after the levees break on Aug 29.   Then Aug 31 the state warned FEMA and Bush that people were dying at the dome. Go here and have a look at the time line, since you have a problem with your memory.

Wow, Obama has declared 37 “Czars”, that bastard! Now I have something else to dislike him for. . . Wait a minute! What exactly is a Czar appointed by the President? Oh, you mean a Czar is nothing more than an adviser who is designed to communicate with multiple agencies?

And that the first Czars were appointed under Ronald Reagan. And the practice was widened by George W. Bush who in fact had 36 Czars. Not to mention at last count Obama has actually 18 to 22 Czars the rest are Senate appointed people who are NOT under the title of Czar. So exactly what the hell is the hoopla again? I guess this is because you partake of too much Fox Stupidity.

You know according to Pew Polls people who get their news from Fox are the least informed people. They were unable to correctly answer questions related to the government. They were even less likely to have correct information than those people who watched ONLY John Stewart and the Daily show or Stephen Colbert which are two comedians making jokes about the news. Well that explains your lack of knowledge yet your incessant spewing of Fox news talking points.

You say Obama “Appointed tax cheats, socialists, communists, environmental wackos and Marxists to some of the most powerful positions in government” I think this is a governmental thing not an Obama only thing. As far as I can remember Bush had some of the biggest liars, cheats and incompetents in his administration.

But if you must, go ahead and name these socialists, wackos and Marxists as I think it would be quite entertaining to see if you can come up with anything. Oh, and if you do get a name right, please list what makes them a socialist, wacko or Marxist. Not just “that is what Glen Beck told me.” Ha, ha ha!

I guess by Saying Obama “enacted legislation designed to payback unions” you mean this little snippet of the Employee free choice act. If an employer is found to have unlawfully terminated pro-union employees, the law would provide for liquidated damages of three times back pay. In addition, you’d be hit with a $20,000 penalty per occurrence if the National Labor Relations Board or a court finds against you.

But unfortunately for you there is NO bill that provides money to pay back unions for nothing. And as far as I can see if an employer is unlawfully firing people for unionizing then they deserve the punishment they get. I can’t go and break the law just because I don’t like what it says. But, of course leave it up to a worker to be anti-worker. HA!

Are you for real? There are NO provisions to pay back tree huggers. I won’t even bother with it unless you show me a specific bill that was passed or some other legislation showing PROOF! This isn’t Fox news; I don’t deal in fantasy land or bizarro world. We already know that the auto industry was NOT nationalized. That is a blatant lie!

Again with this incessant government take over.  Now they are nationalizing the insurance agencies.  *Sigh* Show me where the insurance industry was nationalized? Are we talking all insurance such as car, business, and home etc? Or are you speaking specifically of health which you also have listed separately?

Get your lies straight, it is hard to speak to a liar if he can’t even keep it together. You also say he could pull out of both wars and end them, is this what you think he should? Or once he did so would you along with the rest of the peanut gallery then start talking about how irresponsible that was? Even I think it is irresponsible to tear a another country apart and then just walk away like you don’t know what happened.

Why don’t you recite the part of the constitution that you feel Obama is trying to usurp? That ought to make for some big laughs. We all know that the constitution had absolutely NOTHING to say about health care as there weren’t even any hospitals, health insurance; health related anything in those days. So what pray tell did they have in the constitution that will be usurped, I have to hear this! Maybe we should go back to blood letting and leaches. Will that cure that poor gentleman’s cancer?

Was it racism when people criticized Bush, not a chance.  There was NOT one sign that made reference to his race, creed or country of origin of his ancestry.  Was it racism when Obama called the white police man stupid? Well for one, he didn’t call the man stupid, he said he acted in a stupid manor, and if you don’t know the difference then too bad. And for all I know it could have been.

Was the million man march racism? Who cares what did this have to do with the presidency?   You should have asked if any of the marches about the stolen election or the anti war marches were racist. The answer is NO, because Bush HAD acted terribly inappropriately.  And to try to throw all these sidetracks it is obvious that you really have nothing to refute the information in the actual conversation.

I asked for people which would include you to name the things that were done by THIS president which would create such rage. So far you have said NOTHING that would provoke such anger and rage. Most of the things you have said were either wrong or out and out lies or so far off the mark as to be straight out of a comedy skit. So please if you do bother to reply again, put your thinking cap on and bring the facts. Nothing but the facts please.

Is Disagreeing With Obama Racism?

OK, it is getting just absolutely nuts out there.  I am reading some; make that a lot of blogs out there that all have the same theme.  By Carter saying that race is playing a part in how Obama is being treated somehow they think that everyone is saying that everyone is playing the race card.  Somehow racism can’t be a part of people disagreeing with Obama.  And all the people hate Obama for what he has done.

One of the blogs I read said that people hated Obama because of what he has done to the country and what he is trying to do.  Well, I’ll bite.  What exactly has Obama done?   I personally don’t care for Obama as I know for a fact that he cares as much about the black community as McCain or his idiotic sidekick moose hunter Palin.  I just haven’t seen anything that the guy has done or proposed that would cause all this anger.

Bush enacted the Patriot Bill which actually stole our so called “freedoms” and no one seems to have been out running to a tea party.  Bush said that it was OK to wire tap AMERICAN CITIZENS in their homes which takes away my right to privacy and yet not one tea party or outcry from Glen Beck or anyone else who leans right.

Supposedly Obama has run up the deficit, yet where were these so called tea party folks when Bush practically sent this country to the poor house?  Where in the hell do these uneducated loons think that this large as hell deficit came from?  Trust me it didn’t pop into existence the day Obama won the white house.  Trust me it was there the day before, the year before.  Hell it was there two, three and even four years before and was growing bigger every day.

Is it just me or does anyone else wonder where in the hell were all these people crying give us our country back?   Why is it, all of a sudden a black man is in the white house and now we, and in case no one noticed the vast majority of these people are white, want the country back.  Back from WHO!?  Who in the hell has taken off with the country?   Oh, yeah a black man.  I get it.

Anyway, these people don’t understand that it is one thing to disagree with the president, hell I do.  I just really don’t like this guy.  But, when I am holding signs that say “there is an African lion in the zoo and an African lying in the white house”; I think we have gone far beyond just disagreeing with the president.  There is NO need to mention is race or creed in order to make a point about how he is doing a bad job.

But, you see, my problem is that he really hasn’t DONE anything that shows he did a bad job.  He hasn’t raised taxes (YET), he hasn’t gotten us into two ridiculous wars, he hasn’t sat idly by while a whole state of people practically drowned and starved for five days and he sure hasn’t enacted a bunch of laws that strips Americans of their rights.  And if he has, then why doesn’t someone please list these taxes, wars, catastrophes and laws that he has helped to pass that would show me the reason for such anger.

I didn’t support Bush either but I wouldn’t jump down his throat if he had done nothing to hurt people.  But the problem is he did.  So there has to be something that this guy has done that would cause all these people to practically be chomping at the bit to overthrow the government.  I have been listening to these people at the tea parties and health care protests and they say things that go against their own interests.  So what is their real motive if not health care and taxes?

Are We Americans Really This Stupid?

Moron

I think it’s high time for me to do a little bit of venting.  I have been pretty much silent on the health care debate but listening to NPR today just really made me angry.  I practically screamed all the way from our house to Grandma’s pad.

They were talking to people who watched the President speaking about health care last night and what they thought about what he said.  Well there has obviously been a resurgence of crack usage that seems to have escaped the throngs of news reporters who were so quick to let you know about its usage in the black community.

Anyway, a lady was complaining about the fact that the President wants to make it illegal for insurance companies to use pre-existing conditions to deny coverage.  She likened it to having no car insurance even though it’s mandatory then wrecking into a tree and running to Geico and yelling for them too cover you quick.

Now this lady was obviously so high on crack that she sounded like a total idiot.  We all know that there isn’t one way in hell that any insurance company would cover that situation because coverage starts the minute you sign on the dotted line, not retroactively so it doesn’t quite fit this problem.

We know for a fact that insurance companies are NOT denying coverage to people who sat around with no insurance even though they could afford it purely for no reason.  Who got cancer and then said I better go get health insurance to cover this.

Nope, what the President is talking about is this bullshit about people having bogus pre-existing conditions that somehow should preclude the insurance company from paying any further claims even though they have been collecting the person’s money religiously.

What he is talking about would be the fifty year old man who has just gotten a diagnosis for osteoarthritis and the insurance company denies his coverage because when he was ten years old he stubbed his big toe and needed a band aid from the school nurse.  This is the preposterous crap that happens day in and day out.

And to tell you the truth, this idiotic lady will be the first one to cry, holler and scream that things aren’t fair when, not if, but when this happens to her and/or her loved ones.  I have seen this game all too often as I’ve worked at two insurance companies and I’ve worked at countless hospitals.

This isn’t a game, it is real, it happens and it is practically criminal already.  Either they need to be forced into giving the person the care they PAID for or giving them a full refund on their premiums, including those paid by the person’s job.

I guess since this lady hasn’t had to be one of those affected adversely by her insurance company she can stand to sit around and make idiotic comparisons about a real life travesty.  When are people going to think outside of the doggone box?  It doesn’t take much to do some critical thinking.

I believe that our school system has failed so many.  And it seems that their parents didn’t bother to pick up the slack in teaching critical thinking skills either.  Are we American’s really this stupid?
