Watch Bart on FOX TV, (Didden not Simpson)
Assuming you're not like me, one of the very few in the U.S. who has neither cable, nor the newfangled converter needed to watch TV, you can watch Bart on FOX TV today. And I'm not talking about Bart Simpson, I'm talking of course, about Bart Didden. And by the way, have you heard just about enough from Bart already? (Bart, if you're reading this. I'm kidding.) Bart along with photo was in the New York Times today and a couple weeks ago, and now this. If you're in the security industry and don't know Bart yet, you will soon enough. And if he has your email, you probably got a note from him today about his appearance on FOX. From the email:
The last time I announced I was going on Fox Newsâ€™s Hannity & Colmes in December 2006, I was preempted by the death of President Ford. So barring any national or international catastrophe in the next 3 hours, I am confirmed to appear with â€œYour World w/ Neil Cavutoâ€ on the Fox News Channel today. As a way of background, many of you knew that I was the target of what I called an extortion attempt that involved eminent domain and the taking of my property that had obtained all of its governmental approvals to build a CVS drug store but instead was given to another private individual, over my objections and numerous court actions which included a filing to the United States Supreme Court, to build his own Walgreenâ€™s drug store. My loss at the 2nd Circuit Court of Appeals was presided over by Judge Sonia Sotomayor, who is now President Obamaâ€™s nominee to The United States Supreme Court. My comments today will not revolve around her education, lifeâ€™s experiences or her race. My comments will center on how after 54 weeks of deliberation she issued a 4 paragraph ruling, (unsigned just like the one for the New Haven, CT Firefighters), that upheld the lower court that violated (in my opinion) the Court Rules (rule 12(b)) and how she does not meet the standard for being a Supreme Court Justice as set forth by President Obama. The President said in his introduction remarks of Judge Sotomayor that â€“A Supreme Court Justice must command the, â€œability to hone in on the key issues and provide clear answers to complex legal questions.â€ A Supreme Court Justice â€œmeans seeing life from the perspective of the powerlessâ€ A Supreme Court Justice must â€be able to stand in somebody else's shoes and see through their eyes and get a sense of how the law might work or not work in practical day-to-day living." I surely was powerless against a private person standing in the shoes of government with the full use a such a powerful process, to take someoneâ€™s property, regardless of just compensation. In recognition of the Presidentâ€™s standards for what makes a person qualified, I donâ€™t believe that Judge Sotomayor comes close to this standard based on the decision she issued in my case. I call on both sides, Democrats as well as Republicans to have an effective Voir Dire with this nominee and if she does not meet the standards as set by President Obama there is only one way to vote. I invite you (barring other events) to tune in.
