SIGN OF THE TIMES?

http://www.foxbusiness.com/story/markets/al-lewis-wells-fargo-bank-sues/ This is rather a footnote in the news of the day. I am going to ask Barney Frank for a logical explantion as I have comple confidence in him and his decisions

That reminds me of the line in a movie Full Metal Jacket (I think)..." I want you to choke yourself!"

Didn't Dick Cheney tell someone in the Senate to go sue himself? or something like that.

Without a doubt my favorite lines:

"This is just folks cranking out paperwork without conscious thought..."

Couldn't that be said about 99.99% of everything touched by government?

Speaking of "Class Acts" liked our newest Senator Franken questioning Judge Sotomayor and bringng in their common ground -watching Perry Mason. Takes all kinds I guess as we are indeed a diverse nation

It was a nice light note before he asked her the serious questions about judicial activism.

Well at least he found something they had in common. Otherwise it might have stuck out that he was a bit over his head among the attorneys and doctors doing the questioning. We have another Senator comedian and this one comes complete with the title and credentials. He cannot do a worse job than most of the rest so why not? A few minor tax problems have not slowed any other person in DC down.

Al might be more at ease in his new job by now if he'd been allowed to start in January with everyone else. I did chuckle when he noted their common love of Perry Mason, because I shared it. I guess we're part of a generation that got our earliest ideas of justice and law from ol' Perry. I'm glad he asked her about judiciary activism. Did you approve of her response to the question?

Come to think, I can't remember the judge in Perry Mason being activist. Then again, I never heard of a real-life courtroom confession, although I'm sure they do happen.

He's not just some mouthy night club comic the Democrats were gullible enough to elect because they saw him on TV, you know. He has a cum laude degree from Harvard in political science. But he also happens to be very funny and creative, and that turned out to be the avenue to fame and success.

Thank goodness there's one professional comedian in the room! Did you hear how lame the other guys were? One of them even did Ricky Ricardo to her, and said she'd "have some 'splain' to do"!

I've never gotten on a jury though I've been called up several times for jury duty.

But I'll never forget a judge telling us that it's nothing like TV, you hardly ever hear "I object," there's no drama, and NOBODY ever confesses to anything.

I have a friend who did get on a jury. She said you'd think the judge was asleep - he was leaning back in his chair with his eyes closed most of the time.

These hearings are boring and she has been coached well- not to give a direct answer to anything,. So you got me as to what she said. The result is a given and wuld prefer the News centered on things like the outcome of health care reform.and whether the Tony Soprano approach by, Obama will get the Blue Dogs in line. Also would like to know if Obama is for the "little guy" how Goldman Sachs will not be affected by cap and tax or the health care thing as they are successful in moving their earings out of the country. You boss if you work for a small business will take the "hit" bye bye job. Talk about DC being in bed with big business. just saying..

O'Reilly explains things much better than I doi if you watch his video here http://www.freedomslighthouse.com/2009/07/bill-oreilly-blasts-cap-and-trade-as.html

No matter how badly you might think you explain things I think I'd rather read your comments than listen to O'Reilly's.

He's good enough, he's smart enough and doggone it, people like him....

Perry Mason rules! Did you know that Erle Stanley Gardner himself played the judge on a few occasions? And in the tv version, Paul Drake was played by William Katt, real-life son of Barbara Hale, who played Della Street.

On the TV series Perry Mason, the role of private investigator Paul Drake was played by actor William Hopper. Barbara Hale's son William Katt had the recurring role of Paul Drake, Jr. also a private investigator.

Oh my! A bank sueing itself. Totally ridiculous! What will they think of next? Maybe I could sue myself the next time I mess up a wager.
