Bloviating Zeppelin: Jury Award

Bloviating Zeppelin

(in-ep-toc'-ra-cy) - a system of government where the least capable to lead are elected by the least capable of producing, and where the members of society least likely to sustain themselves or succeed, are rewarded with goods and services paid for by the confiscated wealth of a diminishing number of producers.

Jury Award

Finally, there is some justice in this world:
Jury Awards Father $2.9 Million in Funeral Protesters Case
Associated Press Wednesday, October 31, 2007; 4:04 PM

BALTIMORE (AP) -- A federal jury on Wednesday awarded the father of a fallen Marine $2.9 million in compensatory damages after finding a fundamentalist Kansas church and three of its leaders liable for invasion of privacy and intent to inflict emotional distress for picketing the Marine's funeral in 2006.

Albert Snyder of York, Pa., sued the Westboro Baptist Church for unspecified monetary damages after members staged a demonstration at the March 2006 funeral of his son, Lance Cpl. Matthew Snyder, who was killed in Iraq.

Church members routinely picket funerals of military personnel killed in Iraq and Afghanistan, carrying signs such as "Thank God for dead soldiers" and "God hates fags."

I had posted prior about Phelps and his Westoboro Baptist Church, when radio talk show host Mike Gallagher offered to trade air time to Shirley Phelps-Roper in exchange for her agreement to keep the WBC protestors from the funerals of the five Amish girls executed in their Pennsylvania school back in October of 2006.

In my opinion I still, to this date, cannot think of the requisite words for Phelps, his congregation (consisting primarily of his inbred and brain-damaged relatives and their dolorous and genetic-mutant children) and family. When I think of Phelps, I immediately conjure up the classic line from "The Exorcist": "Your mother sucks cocks in Hell." Now apply that to FP and the WBC.

This connate and incestuous conglomeration of about 75 members will end up sucking anonymous cocks in order to pay the demanded settlement -- both female and male.

There is little or nothing of which I can think that equals the base bastards and bitches constituting the WBC. Except perhaps child molesters and kitten burners.

sick bastards, I hope an avalanche of judgments come their way. this abuse of the freedom of speech we enjoy is about as repugnant as it gets. and to say these so-called Christians are deeply offensive to myself and nearly all other Christians is an understatement. that "pastor" teaching those kids to hate so with a big smile on their face makes me want to puke. it makes those Palestinian parents who put little suicide bomber costumes on their little kids almost look sweet and caring eh?

Mark: I'm hoping this opened the proverbial floodgates; I know they can never pay the judgment but at least they might be bankrupted.

That bottom photo is absolutely nauseating.

Those girls have been brainwashed; the cure should be to drop them off in Iraq for an eye-opener.

Let's hope, and pray, that this sends a resounding message to all those who use the 1st Amendment to spew their hatred of America and our Troops. Hitting them in the pocketbook is where it will count the most.

After watching Phelps on CNN last evening, I was stunned that he was even given that amount of air time.

I STILL, to this point, cannot think of the most excoriating words to describe that "pastor," that "church"and its followers.

Uh yeah BZ, you were not as nice as I was... ROTFLMAO.

My hope is that all the soldiers families that they disrespected will follow suit.

Phelps is a Christian on the outside only. On the inside he appears to be Muslim.

He thinks like a Muslim. He talks like a Muslim, I could go on and on.

Thanks for the good piece on the evil Phelps and his family of mutants.

As someone who participates in "I Vote the Elephant," you'll be very interested in the campaign of William Trower Russell against John Murtha in PA's 12th Congressional District. William is a retired Lt. Col. in the U.S. Army and a veteran of Desert Storm, the Balkans, and Iraqi Freedom. Please visit his site at: and encourage his efforts.

It would help William's campaign if you'd bring his effort to the attention of people on your blog and e-mail list. Please include his URL. Thanks for your assistance.

P.S. I've written several recent columns about William's race and how he intends to win it ( This will be one of the most important races in the nation.

Bush: told'ja!

Steven: any GOP'er running against Murtha would have my support.

I was extremely happy to hear this news too, BZ. I think that hurting them in their pocketbook might make an impression. I don't know how much money Phelps has, but it should be possible to break his bankroll, even if unfortunately we can't break his back!

These people are disgusting and I am glad they are going to have to pay their due. At least, hopefully, this will bankrupt them and we will never hear from these despicable people again.

hopefully the judgment will stick on appeal and phelps and his little gobshite daughter shirley will have charges placed against the title to their homes. Oh how we would all laugh if the court then awarded the chargee with the power of sale and those idiots made homeless.

and who says lawyers are all bad.

I can't tell you how happy I was to hear this verdict. Just as you said, there is some justice in this world.

I'm tired of your diplomacy BZ, why don't you tell us how you REALLY feel. (When I heard about the verdict on O Reilly I cheered aloud,)
