I'm seriously wondering if Spacey could end up being arrested and even convicted here in the UK. We already have a precedent for imprisoning celebrities thanks to the previous scandal-wave a few years ago. Law enforcement won't hold back.

Wouldn't that be something.
If Netflix plays it smart, they could use the resulting footage to untie the rope of House of Cards' next season.

Matt Lauer of The Today Show is the latest culprit, now. Fired from the show by NBC after a detailed complaint from a co-worker about sexual misconduct against her by Lauer.

Matt Lauer (for non-Americans or those who don't watch American newsfotainment, the longtime host of NBC's "Today" show) fired this morning for a sexual harassment complaint.

The "Fake Media" sure is taking this stuff seriously, while the political swamp does very little about it.
Here's to the fools who dream.

geraldo came out in support of lauer today and decried the recent revelations against many men in the entertainment industry a little too vigorously
Sad about @MLauer great guy, highly skilled & empathetic w guests & a real gentleman to my family & me. News is a flirty business & it seems like current epidemic of #SexHarassmentAllegations may be criminalizing courtship & conflating it w predation. What about #GarrisonKeillor?

#SexHarassment allegations should require: 1-made in a timely fashion-say w/n 5 yrs. 2-some contemporaneous corroboration, like witnesses, electronic or written communications. W $ settlements in multi-millions slight chance exists some victims are motivated by more than justice

Geraldo lost me immediately with point one. So many reasons why women, especially in the entertainment industry, don't come forward instantly.

Man do I dislike that dude so much.

Oh Geraldo, you magnificent moron. Yeah, giving a female co-worker a sex toy as a "gift" and telling her how he'd like to use it on her, or calling someone to your office and meeting them with your pants down, sure sounds like good ol' fashioned wholesome "courtship" to me.

how silly! The Big eGo forgot the most important step: asking the father for permission to give sex toys and greet her at the door with pants down. Emily Post must be annoyed beyond tears (even though she's been dead longer than I've been alive).

“Who are they? The liberals. They don’t want conservative values. They are the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, who want to change our culture,” said Moore. “They’re socialists who want to change our way of life. Putting man above God and the government is our god. They are the Washington establishment. They want to keep everything the same so they don’t lose their position, power, and prestige.”
GAY AGENDA (wanting to change everything while keeping everything the same=so gay)

xianjiro yr post reminds me of discussing how gross it was that bill wyman of rolling stones fame had a 13 yr old girlfriend in the 80s. he finally married her when she turned 18. he was 52. and my friend said, "he had her parents' permission" :folded:



and so it begins :D
“Who can you trust most not to show you their penis in a professional setting? Is it the candidate who doesn’t have a penis? I’d say so....Yes, I’m a woman,” she said in the video. “That’s not a liability, that’s an asset ...I approve of putting more women on the ticket in November.”

i love that some people question whether michigan needs three women at the top of state government. i don't remember anyone questioning having 3 men at the top :hmph:

There were a couple articles that came across my news page last week which talked about the legalized marriage of underage people, yes, usually with a parent's or judge's consent. The articles basically called it legalized statutory rape and in some states, judge's can approve marriage for girls as young as 13.

Our marriage laws are still quite medieval: but as long as we're going to hate contraception (especially used by teens, even when they are trying to protect themselves from adult men), curtail abortion, and ostracize teen mothers, it's always going to be preferable to marry those 'unfortunate' girls off!

I've got a great idea where they can frack next! Frackin' frackers.

One wonders just how many teens Moore approved for marriage to older men while he was on the bench. Would he have worked for such marriages while he was in the DA's office as well? "I know how you can plead out of that statutory rape charge and it comes with a shotgun and cake."

Yeah, marriage is such a sacred frackin' institution! Thank the Evangelical's GOD they're fighting to protect it from those heathen (but adult) homosexuals!

Rep. Trent Franks announced that he would resign from office as of Jan. 31, 2018, after discussing surrogacy issues with female staffers.

"I have recently learned that the Ethics Committee is reviewing an inquiry regarding my discussion of surrogacy with two previous female subordinates, making each feel uncomfortable," he said in a statement. "I deeply regret that my discussion of this option and process in the workplace caused distress."
:think: got a feeling there's a lil more to this story. not sorry to see him go. one of the most virulently anti-abortion members of the house who famously opposed a rape exemption because 'the incidence of rape resulting in pregnancy are very low.' no word yet on tex rep blake farenthold who settled a harrassment suit using taxpayer funds in 2014

https://www.politico.com/story/2017/12/ ... ent-274458

a new quinnipac poll shows 70% of americans want trump investigated for sexual harrassment

https://www.axios.com/majority-of-ameri ... 56326.html
86% of Democrats, 39% of Republicans and 66% of Independents want a congressional probe into Trump's alleged behavior. Asked if they think its hypocritical for Trump to criticize men accused of harassment, 73% responded yes — including 94% of Democrats, 46% of Republicans and 71% of Independents.

53% of voters think trump should resign :P
In general Trump voters seem relatively unconcerned with his behavior toward women. Just 45% say they would disapprove of Trump sexually harassing women while 22% actually say they would approve of him doing so, and 32% express no opinion either way.

Terry Zwigoff has joined Peter Jackson as a director who says Harvey Weinstein told him not to cast Mira Sorvino.

A lie ain't a 'side of the story.' It's just a lie.
