15 Years for Throwing Shoe’s!

Muntadar al-Zaidi, or the “Shoe Thrower” is still in custody and has yet to be seen publically. His brother Uday alleged Friday that his isolation indicates he was abused.

“Until now, neither an attorney nor anyone from his family has seen him and this is clear evidence that Muntadhar was under intense torture,” he said at a demonstration by about 20 family members just outside the Green Zone. “The investigation process is now under way in mysterious circumstances.”

This has become huge in Iraq, many Iraqis consider Muntadar a hero for defying George Bush so publically, they think Bush destroyed their country…A shouting match Wednesday between parliament members for and against Muntadar prompted the speaker, Mahmoud al-Mashhadani, to announce he was resigning. Mashhadani showed up at parliament Thursday to resume his speaker duties. But so many lawmakers were in protest of his outburst that the session was canceled.

Muntadar could get almost 15 years for this, he’s apoligized to the Prime Minister in a letter, in which even he said it was a “ugly act” although I don’t think Bush is aware of it, considering he himself said it was “No big deal” how could the man be prosecuted for Insulting a Foreign Leader?

What do you guys think? Should he get hard time just because he just lost his temper and threw his shoe’s?

Slacker Uprising

Micheal Moore, the filmmaker behind Fahrenheit 9/11, Bowling For Columbine, Sicko and More…Has Just released his Newest Film, Slacker Uprising.  It will be available for three weeks as a free download to North American residents, beginning Today (September 23rd) Eventually, it will hit DVD. The article I read said that the movie cost 2 million to produce (1 million of which came directly out of Moore’s pocket).

“Slacker Uprising” Synopsis

The film follows Moore’s 62-city tour during the 2004 election to rally young voters.
Moore is quoted as saying “I thought it’d be a nice way to celebrate my 20th year of doing this” he went on to say ”And also help get out the vote for November. I’ve been thinking about what I want to do to help with the election this year.”

His last election year movie was the Bush-critical Fahrenheit 9/11. Moore is hoping that this movie will help encourage young American voters to go to the polls this November….a number that rose 11% during the last election. It’s also worth noting that He and the producer of the film have no interest in recouping the money for this film.
