    Well it doesn’t sound like they are suing him per say but trying to block him from pulling another one of his little stunts.

    It says "dubiously takes credit for". Which means he didn't have jack (ha!) to do with it.

    Well, it's more like pure speculation.

    Now, I don't know how they are structured but I don't think 46% = 51%, which would (in theroy) constitute controling interest.

    Now, I'm only quasi-pre-law (was pre-law, but now am getting tired of the BS) but how does this Thompson guy even have standing? Sounds like he purely has political aspirations.

    You know, that's how they finally disbarred Fred Phelpes, nusance lawsuits. And he was a hell of a lot better lawyer than Dumbfuck. This can easily be the beginning of the end for Jack.

    I'm surprised Mr. Asshat Thompson hasn't "mysteriously" disappeared yet, like Jimmy Hoffa.

    Oh well, here's to hoping.

    I was asking what the real information behind it was. I knew Jack most likely had nothing to do with it. Oh well google ftw.

    The only way to solve this, once and for all, is with a game of Pong.

    I think it would hurt him far worse to cut him off completely from all media. I don't believe his crusade is anything more then a small child calling out for attention. I don't mind his mission or his goals, to some extent I think he has the right idea, but his tactics and his forcing his ideas upon others has only alienate him. He makes me sick. Ah well...maybe he will shut up for a while.
