The Entitlement Defense

"Let me digress. The newspapers tell us that U.S. attorney Patrick Fitzgerald, who on March 5 is scheduled to put Black on trial, is interested in Mayor Daley. The mayor's reelection campaign is likely to turn on the unstated proposition that public governance also has its zealots and its tendency to excess, and that if the bathwater is corruption, the baby is a city that works.

Black's problem is that there was no baby. There was only his high life, which he has asked the court to rule inadmissible. One of his recent briefs states, "The government has failed to establish that the references to Mr. Black's membership in the House of Lords, ownership of multiple residences, lavish decorating tastes, hosting of an elaborate surprise party for his wife, and employment of servants and a chauffeur are relevant to any essential element of any charged offense." <

TGIF, huh?! Short week but busy one! :)


"I have reached the tentative conclusion that a significant portion of this administration, maybe even including the vice president, believes Iraq is lost," Biden said.

"They have no answer to deal with how badly they have screwed it up. I am not being facetious now. Therefore, the best thing to do is keep it from totally collapsing on your watch and hand it off to the next guy -- literally, not figuratively."


I have a feeling Biden is going to be Bush's worst nightmare!! LOLMAO

Black said, "You're not dealing with greed here, and you're not dealing with sneakiness. You're dealing with a best-efforts attempt to accommodate to industry practice and do what's equitable as determined by independent directors, who as a group are quite a distinguished group."

..... "We haven't been sitting here feathering our nest. We've done things that have savaged our own income, because we thought it was in the interest of the stockholders.'"



You gotta wonder .....

Lord Black is unbeleivable. If convicted, I wonder what his punishment will be? He should be made to do actual work. That would hurt him worse than anything,except loosing his lavish lifestyle.

Part of Conrad Black's punishment should be to run naked through two lines of people (who consist of his ex-employees, shareholders, and their families) and let them all paddle his unscrupulous little butt.

I was glad to see Mr. Leopold and Jimmy Carter on the list.

The loss of Iraq is teetering on Maliki now. He is the chaining pin holding it all together. Bush has left him and his country in a pickle, especially when it comes to the readiness of the military and the civil war in the streets. What's sad is Bush won't even talk to the man while proceeding with 'his' plans for Iraq.

Patriot Girl,
LOL. on Conrad Black. That's probably nothing he hasn't done at one of his parties. LOL. I say send him around with Mike Rowe from "Dirty Jobs". Yuck. Or make him work the fields or pick up trash along the freeway.

patriot girl....I am often reminded of Colin Powell's "just like Pottery Barn, you break it, you own it." The problem is that the (p)resident refuses to own it now.

Digging, digging, digging.......

Calamity and Grandma -

Yes Mams! I sure feel sorry for the Iraqi's though. It's all going to hell in a handbasket for them. I think Bush's new strategy is going to be take a nuclear sub or a carrier over there, point some nukes at them, and give them all an ultimatum (thus the need for replacing the General with the Admiral).

Remember back in the spring when many (anonymous) generals and top military threatened to leave if the nuclear option was not taken off the table?

Let's all pray that Congress can get our troops the hell out of there, and get our dictator in a straightjacket and/or orange jumpsuit before then.

Good Morning/Afternoon/Evening folks!

TGIF!

"Shareholders should have known Conrad Black had a lifestyle to maintain when they bought into his company."

I look forward to Conrad Black's trial. Conrad Black is nothing but a 21th century businessman pimp. Doesn't the nimrod know that when you have shareholders in a company that majority of the control of a company is the shareholders? He stole and pimped from the shareholders. I see the shareholders revolting back on Mr. Black just like the shareholders did with Michael Eisner, an ex-CEO of Disney and the shareholders did Bernie Ebbers, ex-CEO of Worldcom.
