  • President Obama blasts sexist Trump and his defenders, suggests they're not 'decent human beings'

    President Obama lit into Donald Trump and his Republican defenders Friday, attacking him for his authoritarian streak, creepy sexist comments and alleged sexual assaults. "You don't have to be a husband or a father to know that that kind of language, those kinds of thoughts, those kinds of actions are unacceptable, they're not right. You just have to be a decent human being," Obama said, mocking Republicans who have finally thrown Trump under the bus for "political expedience" following his comments that his fame let him sexually assault women - and subsequent claims from more than a half-dozen women that...

    The audience laughed at that point, video published by the Jackson Clarion-Ledger shows. Cochran’s facial expressions did not change, nor did his stance or demeanor. “I know some of you know what that is,” he continued. “The whole point of the story is not just coming here to visit cousins and get to know aunts and uncles better, you absorb the culture and you know what’s important to people here. I feel very comfortable here and have an identity with this area of the state that’s different than any other.”

    Mississippi Sen. Thad Cochran, who is facing the fight of his political life in a run off election against state senator Chris McDaniel, has admitted to some unexplained youthful indiscretion involving animals. Touting his strong ties to the area near Pine Bluff, which turned out heavily for McDaniel in the June 3 GOP primary, the 76 year-old Cochran said that he used to play in the countryside as a child. And that’s not all. He did “all kinds of indecent things with animals,” he said, according to the Hattiesburg American. It’s an odd remark in an already bizarre campaign. Several...

    Ok, summary for those of you who don't want to or can't watch the video: eight-year New Mexico veteran cop Burt Lopez took a chick out to some private property for a quick triple-x throw-down. They thought they were only being watched by a chihuahua, but the whole thing was caught on tape and the rest, as they say in my country, is history. And for the rest of his life, Burt Lopez will be peeling stickers off his car that read "To Protect and Service". And all acts of cop sex shall henceforth be known as getting Burt Lopezed....

    As his final act before leaving office in January, Florida Governor Charlie Crist says he wants to pardon Jim Morrison. Morrison was convicted of indecent exposure during a rock concert performance in Miami in 1969. By all accounts, Morrison was extremely intoxicated and abusive toward the audience. In the midst of a largely inept performance, Morrison asked the audience “Do you wanna see my cock?” whereupon he unzipped his fly and dangled his member. “There was nothing indecent about Jim Morrison,” Crist said. “His body was a thing of beauty. He should not have been prosecuted for sharing a rarely...

    Jeans and a T-shirt would have sufficed, but that's just not Lady Gaga's style. The singer wore a studded leather bra and a head scarf as she watched the San Diego Padres take on the New York Mets in New York last night. Despite her eye-catching ensemble it appeared Gaga had hoped she would somehow blend into the crowd. On noticing a sports photographer turn her way her good mood soured and she gave him the finger.

    SAN DIEGO – San Diego City Council candidate John Hartley was booked into County Jail last night on suspicion of indecent exposure, police said. Hartley, 65, who served on the council from 1989 to 1993, was placed under citizen's arrest after someone called police at 4:14 p.m. and said a man was urinating into a cup and masturbating publicly on Vista Street near Adams Avenue, police spokeswoman Monica Munoz said. Hartley was arrested and taken to the Mid-City Division station to be interviewed, Munoz said. Police said Hartley was processed at the station for booking into jail about 6 p.m....

    On Sarasota's North Tamiami Trail, two mannequins are causing controversy. Some people say they're offensive. The man who put up the display says he wanted to offend his neighbors and the city of Sarasota. People have recently sent e-mails to Sarasota city commissioners asking for help to please have this man take these mannequins down. But city commissioners say, believe it or not, he's not violating any city code. The owner of this now empty building... commonly referred to as the mirrored house... has put these female mannequins on display in the window. Arnold Herbst, a neighbor to the windows,...

    George W. Bush and the Curse Heard ‘Round the World By Jim Dyke The National Ledger August 2, 2006 Is license to curse on live television a presidential perk? If George Bush were a NASCAR driver or an NFL quarterback, his use of the s-word might have triggered a six digit fine from the Federal Communications Commission. The FCC commissioners aren’t making a fuss over their boss’s on-air swear at the G-8 summit, but the incident brings some clarity to the indecency debate. It demonstrates that live broadcasts cannot always be appropriate for most children if they are also appropriate...

Those two (and 4,209 complaints from people who apparently only heard about the show) did not start arriving at the FCC until 12 days afterward, which coincidentally...

    June 7, 2006 Indecent Proposal: End, don’t mend, TV content regulation. Jacob Sullum Syndicated Columnist New York Post / Reason Online The overwhelming support on Capitol Hill for legislation that will dramatically increase the fines for broadcasting "indecent" programming suggests there's broad agreement that the federal government should get serious about cleaning up TV. But the more closely you examine the justifications for this crackdown, the clearer it becomes that the ban on broadcast indecency either goes too far or does not go far enough. Sen. Sam Brownback (R-Kan.), who introduced the Senate version of the bill raising the maximum...

"This legislation will make television and radio more family friendly by allowing the FCC to impose stiffer fines...

    WASHINGTON (Dow Jones)--The U.S. House is set to vote on Wednesday to impose a tenfold increase in the maximum fines for broadcasting profane or other indecent material, paving the way for the measure to be signed into law. The Federal Communications Commission would gain the power to fine television and radio broadcasting stations as much as $325,000 per incident under the bill, up from $32,500 currently. Cable and satellite television providers aren't affected by the measure, which cleared the Senate last month. Congress began to focus on television programming in earnest after the 2004 Super Bowl halftime show, when performer...

    U.S. Senate Backs Ten Fold Hike in Indecency Fines By Jeremy Pelofsky Reuters May 18, 2006 WASHINGTON, May 18 (Reuters) - The U.S. Senate late on Thursday approved boosting fines tenfold to $325,000 on television and radio broadcast stations that violate rules on airing profanity or sexually explicit material. The measure had languished for almost 16 months, drawing criticism from family groups and conservatives including Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist, a likely 2008 contender for the Republican presidential nomination. Lawmakers demanded higher fines on broadcasters after pop singer Janet Jackson briefly exposed her breast during the 2004 Super Bowl football...
