Public Petitions The White House To Investigate Chris Dodd & The MPAA For Possible Bribery

from the quid-pro-quo dept

Late on Friday, we posted a story about how Chris Dodd at the MPAA appeared to be directly threatening politicians who had taken money from Hollywood, but refused to pass SOPA/PIPA. Of course, pretty much everyone expects pay-for-laws type of corruption in politics these days, but it's quite rare for the head of a major lobbying trade group to be so explicit about it. That story went viral in a major way over the weekend -- becoming the most trafficked story on Techdirt... ever. I would doubt that whatever Dodd/the MPAA did reaches to the level of legally actionable... but others aren't so sure. In the comments there's an interesting discussion of the nature of "quid pro quo" in determining if something is considered a bribe. Some point out that Dodd appears to be highlighting the "quo" part, which is where things get dicey.

Pretty soon after the post went up, a We The People petition showed up on the White House's site, asking for a federal investigation of Dodd and the MPAA to see if they were "bribing" public officials. That petition has been gathering an awful lot of signatures all weekend, and it seems quite likely that it will soon reach the required threshold, requiring a comment from the White House. At the very least, I would be interested to see how the White House responds...

    DNA evidence linking?
    “director of the Boston Police Crime Laboratory, had realized that samples taken from the crime scene, including semen on a blanket, contained DNA that could be used to identify the killer.” What is deoxyrubenilc acid is stated as acid (DNA) is a molecule that encodes the genetic instructions used in the development and functioning of all known living.” According to “police did not have a DNA sample from their prime suspect, DeSalvo, so they resorted to a technique that allows investigators to make matches using family members; one scientific reading is sperm or hair follicles all belong and this man was framed! Albert DeSalvo was really a hired cover agent for the Federal Bureau of Investigation looking for rapists and paedophiles! For proof the true detective had a degree in medicine minor and majoring in criminology with a chemistry interest. If Deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) is a molecule that encodes the genetic instructions the fail point is sperm has no the expression of genes is influenced by how the DNA is packaged in chromosomes, in a structure called chromatin. Base modifications can be involved in packaging, with regions that have low or no gene expression; yet can be proven as another code!
    In, “The term sperm refers to the male reproductive cells and is derived from the Greek word (σπέρμα) sperma (meaning "seed"). In the types of sexual reproduction known as an isogamy and zoogamy, there is a marked difference in the size of the gametes with the smaller one being termed the "male" or sperm cell. A uniflagellar sperm cell that is motile is referred to as a spermatozoon;” Motile sperm cells typically move via flagella and require a water medium in order to swim toward the egg for fertilization. In animals most of the energy for sperm motility is derived from the metabolism of fructose carried in the seminal fluid.” If true, however animal sperm; “The spermatozoa of animals are produced through spermatogenesis inside the male gonads (testicles) via meiotic division. The initial spermatozoon process takes around 70 days to complete” Here the investigated victims mostly were with animal DNA; not from Mr. DeSalvo!
    Sperm in a ‘healthy’ state is not from any sick being! According to “A with T and C with G, to form units called base pairs. Each base is also attached to a sugar molecule and a phosphate molecule. Together, a base, sugar, and phosphate are called a nucleotide;” the real impregnation is healthy form of Deoxy-Riboflavin in male people. The charm is a molecule that combines with a chain for configuring a code belt. With the right lock-and-key a treasure of wealth of ovary is open for fertilization. Here the most power filled magnet of great interest is able to master her as a father early! The mother ovum holds a yes-or-no to entry. If the master builder of great engineering holds the Master Key; He is in as father! If not the Door closes and all former interest is forbade from her only Womb!
    Why the Womb a women’s world is fertile! Here Pregnancy is the development of one or more offspring usually is nine to ten months and should never be advanced! The reason is a type of further growth of the fetus and the development alerts the mother to be of a charge of lubrication opening the mother for delivery!
    The reason Girl or Boy is chosen is the male DNA is raised to encoding that favors the child baby to become with the coding of the Ovum! Here the The XY sex-determination system is the sex-determination system; strings of bases contain functioning genes important for male fertility of the Y; Hensley; the X chromosome discovered in 1890 by Hermann Henking Clarence Erwin McClung, that the X chromosome determines sex, was set by medical science that he formation of the male gametes are racing healthy sperm!
    Finally the miracle of life begins. Normally breasts swell and weight is endued! A new scent is apparent for the husband! The wife begins more increased appetite and grows more strength for baby’s development!
    Finally; at birthing careful nurses with doctors viewing watch the mother open her vagina. The head of the girl or boy is slowly with pressure entering her and his new world waiting to scream in delight for mom and dad.
    The baby is out now and warm with hair and new to her and his amazing world and dad is the first to kiss her or him. The life connection of nutrition the umbilical cord is a parted and corded. The baby now is forwarded to a Head nurse for a protective incubator for protection on scourge. Later mother meets dad and smiles with pride on his new baby!
    (The staff work 24-hours on the day with top security to ensure her or his time following birth).
    For all those I am one the best of birth to your new up-coming babies.
