Sandy Aid Creates Big Year End Talk

 

 President Barack Obama's proposal for $60.4 billion in aid for states hit by Superstorm Sandy adds a huge new item to an end-of-year congressional agenda already packed with controversy.

Lawmakers from New York, New Jersey and other states had requested significantly more money, but generally praised the request Friday. They're urging Congress to adopt it without delay.

That's no easy task. Washington is laser-focused on the so-called fiscal cliff looming at the end of the year. And tea party House Republicans may demand budget cuts elsewhere to offset costs.

That means the measure could be delayed in whole or in part until next year.

President Obama Talks Fiscal Truths With speaker Boehner

 

WASHINGTON - The administration is taking a tough line on the "fiscal cliff" at the same time President Barack Obama resumes contact with House Speaker John Boehner over ways to avert across-the-board spending cuts and tax increases at the turn of the year.

The administration will "absolutely" let the double whammy take effect as scheduled unless Republicans give in to Obama's demand to raise tax rates at upper income levels, Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner said Wednesday. "The size of the problem is so large it can't be solved without rates going up," he told CNBC.

Walt Disney Loses Appeal: $319M

The Walt Disney Company lost an appeal on Monday for a new trial in its legal battle with creators of the television competition "Who Wants to Be A Millionaire?" which won $319 million in an award against Disney back in 2010.

U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals judges denied a request by ABC, Buena Vista Television and Valleycrest Productions ("the Disney affiliates" in the ruling) to appeal an earlier order that shot down their motion for a new trial in the case. The three-judge panel also upheld the damage award announced two years ago. Meaning, the 2010 verdict given by a federal jury will stand unless the U.S. Supreme Court intervenes.

N. Tru Bass: Mike Tyson Gets Naked With Graham Bensinger

 

Mike Tyson opens up with Graham Bensinger and talks about finding his wife at the time in bed with Brad Pitt.  The Ex-heavyweight champ said, “You should have saw his face when he saw me.”

During the interview which I have included in this article, he says, while divorcing Robin Givens, “I would go to her house and have sex before going to my lawyers’ office to call her a stealing pig”.  He said his visits were daily visits but, on this day Pitt beat him there.

Givens and Tyson had a famously short-lived marriage in the 1980s that was marked by violence.

When the pair married in 1988 Tyson was estimated to be worth $50 million.

She filed for divorce three months later alleging spousal abuse and was reported to have received a divorce settlement of over $10million.
