Seriously?!? Does This Offend Anybody?
« on: May 03, 2017, 05:53:20 pm »
 . . . federal prosecutors have pushed forward with the case against Fairooz. As Reilly reported, prosecutors argue that “the laugh amounted to willful ‘disorderly and disruptive conduct’ intended to ‘impede, disrupt, and disturb the orderly conduct’ of congressional proceedings.”

The full story is at;

Seriously, It's a crime to laugh in a public forum? Is this really something 'our' government should waste our taxes on? Why are we electing these Fools? Why are we paying these Fools?? Why do we allow them to 'represent' us??The entire situation would be laughable, if it were not so despicable.

Would it still be a crime if the person's name were Betty Smith instead of Desiree Fairooz??

Hmmm, five days after the post, and no one is apparently offended at the violation of free speech, supposedly guaranteed by the First Amendment.

I'll add a sexist card to the pile and suggest no charges would have occurred if the protestor had bed some stuffed shirt Wall St. bankster named Dan Fair.

I'm not sure I understand your comment, Deb.

I didn't post it with the intention of putting folks between a rock and a hard spot. I posted it to generate comments. My thoughts on it are fairly obvious, based on the way I post. But I don't give a rat's backside how varied others' opinions may be. I'm not looking for agreement, I'm looking for conversation. I learn nothing when someone agrees with me; but I learn something from every conversation.

The uSA is becoming kinda like the defunct Soviet Union - well, probably already is.

Democratic socialism = your choice, two parties, Republican or modern Democrat.

Sessions is very likely a reconstructed Southerner.

It's Republicans vs modern Democrats - except they're both socialist parties expecting us to obey their compromises.

Hurray!!! . . . . . . a judge has 'tossed' Desiree Fairooz's guilty verdict for laughing at Sessions. Oh oh, wait, . . . . . she's going to be retried!!!! The judge said she shouldn't have been tried for laughing at Sessions, she should have been tried for 'speaking out as she was removed from the hearing room'.

OMG, the circus continues. A new trial . . . . and more (taxpayer) money wasted. The hard to find story is at the link below. And good luck sorting the myriad of ads on the page.

If she shouldn't have been in handcuffs and removed from the room for laughing, she probably has a false arrest countersuit. And more taxes will be wasted.

The lesson to learn here: When busted for laughing at a political hack at a public forum, DO NOT comment, just keep laughing!!
