No link needed...it's on the news. Look it up. The Obama administration is upset with Boehner for inviting Netanyahu to speak to a joint session of Congress, which may include his desire for sanctions against Iran. Obama's upset at this. Even Democrat senators are very critical of Obama's take on this.
Fact is...Britain isn't any real danger of being nuked by a nuclear Iran. Israel is.
The Rev. Al Sharpton was left fuming mad after the Oscars revealed its all-white list of nominees for this year's Oscar awards on Thursday.
"The movie industry is like the Rocky Mountains, the higher you get, the whiter it gets," Sharpton quipped in a statement released later in the afternoon.
Sharpton, a critic of the lack of diversity in Hollywood, also announced he was holding an "emergency meeting" next week to address the issue.
"I have called an emergency meeting early next week in Hollywood with the task force to discuss possible action around the Academy Awards," he said.
The prestigious awards ceremony was widely criticized after its nominees for best actor, best actress, and best director were all white. In the past two decades this has happened only one other time, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
I'd love to know the "possible actions" the task force will come up with.
BALTIMORE SUN – The third of four Maryland watermen involved in a vast striped bass poaching scheme was sentenced in federal court Wednesday, with the judge saying he wanted to send a message about the seriousness of the crime.
Kent Conley Sadler, 31, of Tilghman Island, was ordered to spend 30 days in jail and pay $25,000 in fines and restitution for his role in the Chesapeake Bay scheme.
Sadler worked with two other Tilghman Island watermen, William J. Lednum, 41, and Michael D. Hayden Jr., 43, who took more than 92 tons of illegally caught striped bass worth nearly $500,000 from the bay from 2007 to 2011, according to prosecutors. Sadler pleaded guilty to his role, which involved helping Lednum and Hayden take more than a quarter of that illegal catch.
Bastages...take away their ability to get any hunting/fishing license, take their boat, etc.
