Congress and Cosby

11 posts in this topic

I just read the headline and that was enough.  I could care less if this idea was a R or D or I.  Congress is proposing a bill to strip Bill Cosby of his Presidential Freedom Award.  

Do something!!!  What a waste of time...frankly though doing nothing can be a positive to doing something so maybe I take that back.  My point is that the fact that someone thinks that is a good idea makes them a buffoon to begin with.

I agree.  Waste of time.  We already have another accused rapist who gets to keep his Medal of Freedom.

With what justification?

Has Mr. Cosby been convicted of a crime?

It may appear Mr.Cosby is a sleazeball but if they begin attacking sleazeball in Washington DC half of Congress will be under pressure to resign.

So if he were to plead or be convicted, revoke the award? That ok?

These are the "bills" they pass and then puff their chests every election and say "See what WE accomplished" and we all BUY it hook, line and sinker...

How many of these Cosby detractors in Congress are backers of Hillary and Bill Clinton? Anyone can be accused of anything once or twice but after so many,as in the case of both Cosby and Clinton, well, were there's smoke there's fire.

Sad way to end an otherwise distinguished career. Fat Albert..who knew;)

So he's ACCUSED of crimes and so congress wants to strip him of an award. They can act fast on that but can't get more important things done.

On the other hand Hillbillary is under FBI investigation as she's accused of deleted over 30,000 emails that she illegally had on a private server yet she's allowed to run for President?

I could care less about a rapist have a meaningless award but having a felon in the White House is unacceptable.

Right now, they just have the word of these women to convict Cosby. I believe the women. I just don't know how they would convict him

I don't think he'll get convicted either.  But there is just too much smoke for there to not be a big fire.

Either way, Cosby is bizzle bozzum done.  I'd put him in my 2016 dead pool.

    • Human nature. Especially when one is emotionally invested in elections.   I haven't commented too much on this Russian stuff. Could be true. Could be all just many upset about the election results. 
    • Did "YOU" and the "WIFE" enjoy growing up in the cities?  Me personally I grew up in a farm town in southern MN and have lived in Shakopee for the past 25 years.  I absolutely cannot stand living in the cities.  Everything is amped up 500%.  Driving is nuts. Traffic is nuts.  Ever ride your bike down Minnehaha falls on the weekend?  Kids sports is outrageous.  In general if you want to fish, sled, atv, your driving up north...with everyone else on a Friday night.  Unless you get lucky as heck most neighbors are either phony as heck or you never see them.  Seems as though most folks never leave the house.  Unless you have lots of space/land you will have neighborhoods doing fireworks whenever, dogs barking, snowblowing at 10:00PM etc...  Kids rarely go out and play in the cities.  I've discovered that they are constantly being shuttled to event after event, so the notion that the kids on the street will play together is few and far between.  The schools, at least in Shakopee have been great from an educational standpoint!  However because they shift classes and actual schools every few years, my girls have never had the same classmates.  In the town I grew up in we only had 120 kids in the class, so you pretty much knew every kid.  Bussing can be quite limited when your kid wants to do afterschool activities and sports.  Talk about income inequality...in my hometown the farmer was generally the "rich guy" but you never really knew it.  In the cities you definitely know who the rich folks are and boy does it bring out the competition in folks.  And I'm not talking CEO's and big wigs, I'm talking 2 professionals pulling down 6 figures each.    That's the other thing most people skim over when talking about the greatness of the metro.  Sure if you can afford $125 tickets for the wild game, or $85 tickets for a play, or "shopping" as your activity it IS a great place.  But if your not willing to pony up the money for those events it can be a little boring.  That's why I enjoy Shakopee in that I can head down to the river and take a nice long walk in peace and quiet.  Especially in the winter!   Maybe because I'm getting older and older but this notion that life is all about money, money, money seems less and less important.  Granted I understand you have to make a living and provide for your family, which is why I deal with it, but ultimately you have decide what your family wants out of life.  That is why I am encouraging my kids to seek a life away from the big metro area.  Especially since they enjoy being outside so much.  Full disclose we bought a small cabin last year as our way to "deal with it".  Now I have a place to go to get away AND in 6 years when my youngest graduates high school I will be out of here...  Good luck!!!!
    • True, but we have liberal corporate run media and the fact you are seemingly blind to that fact shows your bias.     
    • my old house was a 6.5 x 12' (No V front) with an outside 2x4' in front for bathroom.   I really didn't notice any difference in towing it.  I know a guy who had his house built with about 2' wide V in front which opens the entire area up quite a bit and he wishes now he would have went 3' wide.  And this still gives you plenty of space on the V to put your LP tanks.     Wish I would have done that on my new 8x16'.   The little gas the V front may save you, to me is not worth the value of that extra space.    
    • I thought there was no point?
    • The US doesn't have state controlled media at all. Well, didn't have. Now we have Bannon and Breitbart in the White House, and of course at Trump's press conference there was only a single reserved seat: front and center for Breitbart.   As far as psychological manipulation: you are subjected to it daily, but usually for commercial purposes. You can easily go the whole day without seeing anything politics related, but good look avoiding advertising for a day.
