Couple win $14million after un-masking anonymous internet trolls who labeled them sexual deviants
A Texan couple who were anonymously abused on an internet forum have won $13.8 million in damages for defamation - In what could be a landmark ruling for freedom of speech online.
Mark and Rhonda Lesher were awarded the sum by the District Court of Tarrant County, after being called sexual deviants, molesters and drug pushers on Topix.com boards created to discuss the couple's sexual assault arrest and trial in 2008.
The couple were cleared of all charges against them in January 2009 and subsequently the couple filed their civil lawsuit against the anonymous posters in February 2009.

<quoted text>media lackeys---excellent comment---I observed it yesterday while reading Newsday, a very liberal paper. As a sidebar to Romney's win in the Texas primary, "Obama targets Romney-Trump connection."
"President Barack Obama's re-election campaign has released a television advertisement accusing Mitt Romney of failing to stand up to "the voices of extremism" in his party. etc...'
oh, the hypocrisy! this newspaper NEVER had the same type of targeted coverage reporting on Obama-Ayers or Obama-Wright, neither in 2008 or now as Wright recently resurfaced and spoke about being offered $$ to stay quiet in 2008. Say what you will about Trump--but he is NOT AN UNREPENTANT TERRORIST or ANTI-AMERICAN RACIST MINISTER. He is a successful businessman--how horrible!!!
And I hope Romney's camp plasters that racist Jeremiah "Goddamn America" Wright's black face on every campaign ad they can ....... and hold the Kenyan phoney's feet to the fire about William Ayers, the commie terrorist.

The lamestream liberal media's days of ignoring such blatant displays of America-hating are gonna soon be over.

Obama Ally Artur Davis Leaves Democratic Party

Former Alabama congressman Artur Davis, who seconded Barack Obama's nomination for president four years ago, says he's leaving the Democratic Party.

The one-time rising Democratic Party star -- once described as "the Obama of Alabama" -- said on his website that he is switching his voter registration to Virginia and is considering running for office as a Republican. Davis was also critical of the Obama administration, with whom he was sometimes at odds while in Congress on issues such as health care.

Never fear, Mr. Davis. You're certainly not alone with your frustration.

<quoted text>WASHINGTON (Reuters)- Republican Mitt Romney says he is running for president in search of a better America.
This week, Romney's campaign could have used a better speller.
The campaign released an iPhone app late Tuesday that features slogans supporting his campaign against Democratic President Barack Obama ahead of elections on November 6.
"We're With Mitt," read one. "American Greatness," declared another.
"A Better Amercia," proclaimed a third, a misspelling that almost instantly became the subject of jokes on social media.

"Everyone knows that America is far more religious than most other developed countries.

Religious people tout our fervor as what makes us special (said in a proud Ronald Reagan voice).

The more secular denounce it as what makes us “special”(said in a mocking Saturday Night Live Church Lady voice).

A March poll by the Pew Research Center, released at the end of a particularly fanatical Republican nominating process during which religious extremism took center stage, recorded a bit of a backlash against religion.

It found for the first time that more people thought that there has been too much expression of religious faith by political leaders.

In fact, the poll found that most Americans (51 percent) believe that religious conservatives have too much control over the Republican Party. That was a record high. By comparison, a plurality (49 percent) said they don’t believe that secular liberals have too much control over the Democratic Party. That too was a record high.

The poll also found that a record number of people (54 percent) said that churches and other houses of worship should keep out of political matters."

We can only hope that Romney takes a more aggressive posture toward Obama and his shady past.
(Soledad O'Brien, possibly the stupidest person ever to graduate from Harvard, is a poster child for Affirmative Action college admissions.)
It's time for the conservatives & Romney to take a REAL aggressive posture toward the Kenyan phoney.

We want to see our side take the gloves off and not be afraid to step on any toes..........

I relish the thought of Barack HUSSEIN Obama being questioned point-blank in a debate about his murky, manufactured past and his commie associations.

A three judge panel of The United States Court of Appeals for the First Circuit just handed down a decision declaring the anti-gay Defense of Marriage Act unconstitutional. Notably, the panel included Judges Juan Torruella and Michael Boudin, both of whom are Republican appointees. Judge Boudin, who authored the opinion, is one of the most highly regarded judges in the country; he frequently sends his former law clerks to clerk for Supreme Court justices. More analysis of his opinion will follow shortly.

None of that makes it right to use taxpayer dollars to build sports arenas. Cities can collect the taxes without giving the revenue back in the form of subsidies.
Where are the Cubs or White Sox gonna go?
San Antonio, Portland, Charlotte, Nasdhville, New Orleans, Indianpolis, are all looking to add a MLB franchise.

Several years back Hartford lost the Whalers to Charlotte, NC. The city lost tax revenues, restaurants, bars, and half of it's non-minority nightlife. What corporation wants to move their headquarters to a city without a major league sports franchise with top notch corporate skyboxes?

Obama voted against that bill because of the definitions included in it. Republicans stuck in language that changed the definition of "infant".
The Republican Party is far more interested in the Abortion Issue than abortions themselves.
Do you know how freaking stupid you sound?

Barack HUSSEIN Obama aka Barry Soetoro voted AGAINST the ban of the heinous, disgusting partial-birth abortion procedure........and you want to argue about the word "infant"???

What would the correct liberal term be? A shrimp?

P.S. Would you like to check out a link detailing that repulsive, infanticide procedure? Hold on, I'll get one for you.

President Obama and his wife, the health nanny in chief, obviously don't know when they've gone too far in their crusade to socialize and Obamatize America.

They couldn't stop pushing for the Obamacare mandate that would force religious organizations to pay for coverage of abortion-inducing drugs, contraception and sterilization for their employees regardless of the institution's moral or religious objections.

Oh Blow me. You don't know sh*t about me & just because I keep pointing out your dumbasss comments doesn't mean I did not plan for retirement, work for the government, or on the government dole like all you right wing azzholes say.

Just because I believe in a safety net like welfare & Food Stamps & Social Security, does not mean I ran out & bought too big a home & a new fancy car instead of support my family & future retirement
