Scott Brown & President Obama Are Related

Wow, the things that genealogy can uncover is truly amazing. A genealogist has discovered that newly elected Massachusetts governor Scott Brown & our illustrious president Barack Obama are actually related. Now, I can’t see any physical resemblances between these 10th cousins.The only family trait that these cousins share are their spectacularly great looks. They also have made their mark in politics.

I wonder how they feel about being distant cousins. Kinda weird,isn’t it?

Here’s more from The Wall Street Journal:

President Barack Obama can add a new name to the list of things he calls Scott Brown: cousin.

Genealogists at the New England Historic Genealogical Society said today that the president and the Republican senator-elect from Massachusetts are 10th cousins. Obama’s mother and Brown’s mother are both descendents of Richard Singletary of Haverhill, Mass., who died in 1687.”(End of Excerpt) Read the rest here.

Justice Alito Causes Controversy During Obama’s State Of The Union Address!

Justice Alito caused a silent disturbance that has become a loud controversy. He grimaced when President Obama admonished a Supreme Court decision during his State Of The Union address.

President Obama was upset because the Supreme Court wants to allow corporations to support the candidate of their choice.Justice Alito mouthed the words “not true” after President Obama expressed his fear that this would allow “special interests — including foreign corporations — to spend without limit in our elections.

Let’s just abandon all protocol,guys!

Since Alito muttered his disent,a debate has risen over whether President Obama said something that was “not true.” Some folks beg to differ with Justice Alito. They say that President Obama’s assertion is true.

Here’s more from The Huffington Post:

“Conservatives and progressives may argue this morning about whether President Obama should have criticized the Court and about the severity of Justice Alito’s breach of protocol, but Justice Alito faces a bigger problem: Obama’s comment is true.

In fact, Obama’s carefully-phrased comment to the justices highlights two critical aspects of the majority’s decision in Citizens United v. FEC, both of which constitute dangerous and revolutionary shifts in long-settled law:

  1. The Court ruled that the First Amendment makes no distinction among speakers — that the identity of a speaker makes no difference for purposes of government regulation of speech. As Justice Stevens pointed out in his dissenting opinion, this logic leads to some remarkable conclusions: “Such an assumption would have accorded the propaganda broadcasts to our troops by ‘Tokyo Rose’ during World War II the same protection as speech by Allied commanders.” Stevens also clearly explained that the majority’s logic “would appear to afford the same protection to multinational corporations controlled by foreigners as to individual Americans.” This is truly an unprecedented reading of the Bill of the Rights that could have consequences that reach even beyond campaign finance law. By eliminating any distinction among speakers, which, as Obama noted, has been recognized for at least a century, the Court hinted that any regulation that distinguishes between corporations and individuals may be problematic — raising the question of what other rights currently reserved for citizens the Court might soon extend to corporations. As Stevens noted in his dissent, under the majority’s logic, “it may be a First Amendment problem that corporations are not permitted to vote, given that voting is, among other things, a form of speech.”(End of Excerpt) Read the rest here.

And to make matters worse,it appears that Justice Alito may be holding a grudge against Obama. President Obama was one of the Senate Democrats who voted against his confirmation. Here’s more on that from Politics Daily:

“President-Elect Barack Obama strolled over to the Supreme Court yesterday to pay a visit to the Justices who will be scrutinizing his legislation and executive orders over the next four years. It was supposed to be a friendly visit, initiated by Chief Justice John Roberts, who will swear Obama into office next Tuesday.

But then one bad apple had to go and ruin it.

Wednesday’s meeting was described as a relaxed, get-acquainted session. It included Roberts, seven associate justices and Vice President-elect Joe Biden.

The absence of Justice Samuel A. Alito Jr., who was at the court Wednesday morning for arguments in two cases, was a mystery. He has, however, voiced lingering anger over Senate Democrats, including Obama and Biden, who voted against his confirmation three years ago. When walking on Capitol Hill, Alito has said, he crosses to the far side of the street whenever he nears the Senate Office Building.

What gives, Justice Alito? Are you really still mad at Barack and Joe for trying to Bork you? After all, they both voted against Roberts, too, and he seems able to forgive and forget.”(End of Excerpt) Read the rest here.

Kerri Lyn Smith Gave Her Boyfriend A Hellish New Year’s Kiss!

Ha

Kerri Lyn Smith must have been extremely intoxicated to the point of delirium when she bit off her boyfriend’s lip during a New Year’s Eve kiss.The insane hellion from Dallas gave her unlucky mate a kiss that was straight from hell.

What an evil woman! Lock her crazy ass up!!!

Here’s more from the Dallas Morning News:

” One of the first crimes committed in Dallas in 2010 was a particularly gruesome act of family violence, according to police.

About midnight on New Year’s Eve, Kerri Lyn Smith, 41, was kissing her boyfriend of four years in Far North Dallas when Smith bit the man’s bottom lip and tore it off his face, according to police documents.

The man was able to push Smith away and call 911. He told officers Smith bit him suddenly and began yelling at him. It’s unclear what would have prompted Smith to do such a thing.

Police officers called to the 18900 block of Lina Street near Rosemeade Parkway and the Dallas North Tollway saw part of the lip on the ground, police documents said.

The man, who has a 2-year-old son with Smith, told police he did not want to press charges. Officers arrested her anyway on a charge of aggravated assault/family violence.

The man was treated at a Plano hospital.”(END OF ARTICLE)Read more here.
