Conor Kennedy Arrested

While Taylor Swift coasts around Malibu parking lots eating ice cream and riding around in shopping carts, her ex-boyfriend got arrested. No not Harry Styles. The boyfriend before that. Well, yes, I know she cheated on Conor Kennedy with Patrick Schwarzenegger, but I mean the actual boyfriend before Harry. Yes, Conor. Yes, the one in MA where she bought the house she will never ever use. No, not the house in England she bought to be close to Harry which she will never ever use. Anyway, Conor and his dad the tool and Daryl Hannah were arrested with 45 other people who chained themselves to the White House gates to protest a pipeline they say will transport dirty oil and contribute to global warming.

What the hell did Daryl do to her face?

Conor is better off in jail than with that ├╝ber creepy stalker Swift.

Christopher Cruz said...

Amen!

Cleodacat said...

Soapbox moment....I live in Alaska where 3/4 of the land is tied up by either the state or federal govt. We have a need for work in many of our remote lying villages and a need for a living wage to offset the cost of living (same as DC but with a median income of 24K as opposed to 80K. It irks me to no end that someone not remotely living and breathing up here tries to impose on us how we should conduct our business and even more so when it's a celebrity. Oh wait it's for the greater cause. Okay, I'm done.

phoenix said...

Huh, well at least he's trying to make a difference and standing up for his beliefs. Way too mature for Taylor :p

Meanie Reese said...

Good for them! The environment is something we all need to concern ourselves with!!

And, Daryl, honey...dafuq you do to your face?!?! ;(

Agent**It said...

Cleo, well stated. Agree.

FSP said...

I see Daryl Hannah was there...where was Cheryl Hines?

Patty said...

Oh look...part of the 2% protesting affordable fuel for the rest of us. Thank you for your sacrafice.

"They" don't say that oil contributes to global warming. Science says so.
And @Cleo, what happens in Alaska and elsewhere affects every part of the world. I really, truly wish that the deniers were right and that 99.999% of the world's scientists and climate experts were wrong, because the alternative is quite horrible. But I'm afraid it's not so. Thousands may lose jobs without this pipeline, but millions more will lose jobs - and their lives - if the economy collapses due to climate disaster.

Cleodacat said...

Rosemary, tell that to the families that cant afford to heat their home at $800 a month for oil ( remember it gets down to -50 and below), feed their kids milk at $10 a gallon, cheese at $9, good grief even a bag of Doritos costs $10. You are worried about tomorrow's children but what about todays?

Agent**It said...

The economy has already collapsed.

libby said...

Today's children deserve to know we could get along enough to solve this climate issue, and stop being selfish bastards who burned up the only planet we have, because we wanted to pay a buck less per gallon of gas and were too lazy to care about finding alternatives YEARS ago.
Today's children want Earth to still sustain LIFE in 50 years.
But yeah, grocery bills. And my Hummer costs too much to fill up.

Mischievous Angel said...

Why do they always protest drilling for oil in our country and tell Americans how we are contributing to global warming when no one even blinks an eye about the pollution in places like China or India?
We do a whole lot to keep things clean and help the environment, yet a minority gives us the most grief. Meanwhile, we keep our fuel prices high by buying from people who hate us, while denying much needed work for our own. (As noted above).

MBK said...

The only real crime here is Daryl's plastic surgery. Oy!

libby said...

China & India have Cap and Trade policies AT LEAST. But yes, keep fighting over 25 cents on a gallon of gas, til the last ember of human society slips into a mostly dead,lukewarm sea.
4 times our population, and China barely beats us in emissions. Still.

Cleodacat said...

For most villages there are no "Hummers", no cars at all. Transportation is done by ATV or Snow machine. The only "towns" living it up with luxery items surround Anchorage in a state that's bigger than Texas.

libby said...

Alaska is still connected to the whole planet, right? Because focusing on one word and ignoring my point is only making your last comment an exercise in FAIL.

ABlake said...

Hey now, no need to bring Texas into this;) If we had our way, we'd be our own country by now.

AndrewBW said...

I'm not telling anyone what to do with their lives. All I'll say is that it'll be a cold day in hell - literally! - when I move someplace where the temperature gets to fifty degrees below zero. That's just crazy talk!

Cleodacat said...

It's okay, I still love ya Libby. Like I started with, soapbox moment.

MadLyb said...

Good for them! People do know that by and large, most of the oil pumped in America is sold overseas, right? We don't benefit from it. And most of the timber cut on our soil is sold overseas, processed and then sold back to us at an much higher price.

The truth is, the planet will be here eons after humans die out - but in the meantime, we'll probably be around a bit longer if we learn not to keep sh*ting in our own cage. Probably not, though. People still scoff at global warming.

O'Really said...

If we don't stop destroying this planet it doesn't matter how much oil costs...there'll be no one around to use it.

ethorne said...

@Agent you took the words right out of my mouth.

ethorne said...

It'll be a cold day in hell when I move somewhere with $10 Doritos

annabella said...

rich people w/nothing else to do? seriously renoblonde that is pure ignorance.

Angela said...

When that happens I will be applying for either citizenship or asylum.

SusanB said...

I am so tired of the Kennedys. I don't care what they carry on about - they annoy me so much I tend to automatically disagree with whatever they say. If they said the sun rose in the east, I'd be outside with my compass just to be sure.

Kowalski said...

Isn't the protest part of the Sierra Club? It isn't just a bunch of rich people. People have been protesting Keystone XL for a while now, right?

g.strathmore said...

THAT's Daryl Hannah?!?

Turkish Taffy said...

I've said it before and I'll say it again... MadLyb-I love you!!!

Nope said...

Good for him! Wish I could have been there too.

Amartel said...

Get a job, 4th rate Kennedys and celebrity hangers-on. At least Taylor Swift generates her own income. And enjoys some delicious ice cream at the same time. Now that is genius and anyone who says differently is just mad envious.

BTW, earnest clean energy advocates - the Kennedys for years blocked and continue to block the construction of a wind farm that would interfere with their Hyannisport view. View blight for thee but not for the "Royalty."

Agent**It said...

SusanB, and I would be there right with you:)

ulalume said...

Well at least he's out protesting a worthy cause & not acting like most rich, entitled brats... drinking, partying & being douchebags.

prolixe said...

@ablake - heh, secession failed. :b That was a hilarious article.

In my head, his name is pronounce KO-nar because of the missing n. Then I think Conan and Conor and wonder how many brain cells Two Buck Chuck is killing.

Agent**It said...

ula, you are not familiar with him:)

Veech said...

I find it really attractive when a guy stands up for his beliefs, even to the point where he could get in trouble with the law. I'm a total political junkie and this kinda makes me swoon. Uhh, now I need a cold shower

seaward said...

Kowalski- Yes, it's the first act of civil disobedience the Sierra Club has ever endorsed. It's a really big deal.

Renoblondee said...

Seriously annabella, unwad your underwear.

All about Eve said...

Second everything Libby said!

Diana G said...

LOL!!! ;-)

ulalume said...

@Agent**It - you're right, I don't know anything about him besides the fact he dated Taylor Swift but when I read the headline, I assumed he was arrested for some douchey underage drinking thing. I was surprised it was for protesting!

__-__=__ said...

This is what rich people should be doing, standing up for the greater good for us all. Like Yoko does with the fracking issue. This isn't something people who have to go to work can do. I admire Daryl Hannah for her arrests. I just can't afford to do it. Pity Parasite couldn't do something this useful with it's time.

__-__=__ said...

Cleo - no animal drinks the milk of another animal. Milk is nothing but cow pus these days. It's poison. Kids should be drinking soy milk, rice milk, any kind of milk other than cow milk. It's just gross.

Cheese at $9? How much cheese does a person need?? We're people, not ham beasts.

Which brings me to Doritos. Honestly, chips? Who eats that trash? Why would you put that in your body?? Why would you put that in a child's body?? It's just wrong. It's bad nutrition.

This is my answer to your questions, respectfully. You are entitled to your opinion and me mine. Nobody owns the earth. It is here for all of us, including plants and animals. Greater good should over ride any economic issues. It doesn't get to -50 everywhere.

astrogirl said...

Just because you claimed Alaska doesn't mean you have to right to exploit it.

Betsy said...

I'm glad to see this issue getting publicity. That's what the celebs do - get the media to pay attention. I'll be in DC on Sunday to join the big rally. Our energy solutions should be based on what is healthy for all, not making a few wealthy.

grammyCC said...

Yep....that nasty dirty oil they use everyday to drive their fancy cars and travel in their jets...and lets not forget...heat their big fancy homes...can you say hypocrites!!!!!!

grammyCC said...

All I see is a bunch of hypocrites.

nightowl said...

The day the Kennedys live what they preach for the rest of us, I might think of listening. Nothing but a bunch of hypocrites. Oh and same goes for Yoko Ono. Protests fracking by arriving in a huge gas guzzling Mercedes bus. Yeah, she's all about saving the Earth.

grammyCC said...

@_-_=communist¡¡¡¡¡....your a morron....Feel free to give up yours first.....when people are hungry and freezing ALL manners and civility will cease to exist. If its between a tree and me keeping my family warm...the tree goes.....its called survival....and in the end....people will do what they HAVE to in order to survive....when people use the term THE GREATER GOOD.....it means communism...taken right out of the writings of karl marx ...therefore....Fuck you!

Goodnight said...

It always amuses me when celebrities and the uber rich protest environmental stuff. MAYBE they live in futuristic self-sustaining ecomansions, but they probably live in the ordinary kind and flush the toilet every time (not saying I don't do the same!) and leave all the lights on and heat and cool rooms nobody is using etc. etc.

It just seems a bit disingenuous to me to protest the destruction of the environment when you have a private jet on standby, you know?

grammyCC said...

Beacause these people think they know whats best....when they are hungry and cold...maybe then they will realize they screwed up...they need to go study real history to find out what happens when the government controls all the lands and the resources available.....its not pretty

grammyCC said...

DITTO!

grammyCC said...

You got that right!

grammyCC said...

What pisses me off is the hypocrisy of everyone who bemoanes the use of natural resources....YES we all should be considerate to our environment...but people FIRST. Where do you think food comes from....it is grown by farmers who rely on tractors....irrigation...and many other resources that are available.Take away or severly limit those resources and boom...not enough food......and yes some of that food is grown in regions that get severely cold during the winter...thank God for those who choose to live there and feed our nation...next time you buy bread, vegies or anything you consume...THINK about how it made it to YOU....it wasnt magic...but it can disappear.

Natural dissasters will always happen....the earth is always changing ...who the eff knows if we will be here tomorrow...its a living planit...always changing.....but unless YOU are freaking willing to give up evertthing YOU have...dont you fucking tell me to suffer and do without.....I know what its like NOT to have and to REALLY sacrifice and work hard....so all of you out there that think its okay not to afford gas....not to afford heat....not to afford food....keep it up and believe me..one day YOU will get to experience it...and guess what....people will take care of themslelves first...the GREATER GOOD does not exist in survival mode......So all of you who enjoy eating...warmth....a car (no matter a hybrid) . A roof over your head....clothes on your naked bodies..a bed...a shower....a clean toilet.....anything and everything that the world has to offer......whenever YOU are ready to go rogue....and completely live on your own merrits and skills ...please feel free to do so.....

As for me....I like society as it is.....AND YES....we need to take care of our planet.....but not at the expense of HUMAN LIFE....when you talk nonsense about letting people freeze or starve....YOU FIRST...because you obviousley live a sheltered life....WAKE UP to youself.

grammyCC said...

Im mean respectfully fuck you.

grammyCC said...

My rant for the day.....oh yea....respectfully!

grammyCC said...

People who have no clue about real life and live in their own small hypicritcal worlds, are always in the forefront to tell other its ok for them to do without...be it a job...food...heat...anything.....Do as I say...but not as I do.....these people and many others like them are hypocrits....if they at least lived what they preached, a mountain mans life, then maybe I could at least appreciate the honesty.

My prayers are for the hard working people of alaska.... jobs...jobs...jobs.. please.

Becca Parker said...

@Cleodacat:
The Keystone pipeline won't help the United States in any way!
The purpose of the pipeline is to export oil from the Alberta tar sands to Europe, Japan & China.

If Canada wants to export their oil, then destroy a thousand miles of your country to build a pipeline to the Pacific in British Columbia, not a thousand miles of this country!

Or run the pipeline to the refineries around Chicago, Cleveland & then east to New Jersey!

Jacq said...

I can't believe she was with josh Corbett (Aiden from SATC

grammyCC said...

Right... Thousands of jobs wont help.

yawnathon said...

I'm completely with you on this one _-_. Beautifully put. I love the "You must be a communist!" last resort.

yawnathon said...

Ok @grammy- besides your ellipses abuse I have some things on which I'd like you to enlighten me: I know a little bit about AK due to friends & family living there. They've worked steadily now there for decades. A couple in oil related fields and none of them want this pipeline. Are you saying the economy in AK will collapse if no pipeline? How? I thought AK did well in logging and fishing.

From your comments above, you make it sound like you moved there expecting to find work on this pipeline and are now angered that it might be threatened. Is this the case?

And lastly, haven't Alaskans been finding work in other fields there? I know quite a few families who have someone travel up there for canning season because the pay is good. Am I wrong? I realize a pipeline would bring jobs, but I can't quite understand why you think people will die in AK if they don't get *this* particular job. Please enlighten me. I'm honestly asking.

Every state is having problems with unemployment. It's not just AK that has people needing help to heat their homes and put food on the table. But, from what I've heard, there seems to be a lot of opportunity there if you're willing to live in what a lot of people deem an undesirable area of the world due to weather and dark days.

grammyCC said...

First off....not one time did I mention Alaska by name.....second...not one time did I state that the Alaskan economy would fail....third...I am an American citizen who has lived in many great states....not Alaska.....My complete reference is made in the context of ALL of the hypocrisy people spout....Dont tell me that I should have to sacrafice my standard of living and you dont...These people put themselves above working people and dont mind if others cant afford food...shelter...or even heat...because after all they are in their little world with blinders on.....but they themselves continue their abuse of the environment for THEIR comforts...needs...wants...whatever...LIVE what you preach is what Im saying.....give it all up if it offends you...cars....clothes...homes....food....travel...all of it and then preach to me.....By the way....the pipline runs down into the US from Canada.....alot of financially hurting people along the way who are out of work...but then again if it doesnt affect you personally...you wouldnt care....people want to work and this multistate pipline will provide many good paying jobs...people dont want to struggle constantly and live off others.....I am in no way connected to these areas...but know many people who are.....so listen to the people in the pathway....they after all are the ones that will be effected by this this most....but then again as a nation we can benefit from the added revenue and savings from people getting off the dole.

Tina Mallette said...

If the US gets all its oil from Canada and pipelines are cleaner AND safer way to transport oil than tanker trucks and trains, the US can give Saudi Arabia et al the finger they deserve, no more money from North America getting funnelled to Islamist terrorists via oil money

if Obama can make the US no longer dependent on Middle Eastern oil it will be a monumental achievement

ThinkAboutIt said...

All I can say is that before you defend the Keystone Pipeline, maybe you should do some research into what the tar sands actually are, and what kind of impact they have on the environment. Then think seriously about the damage, and the devastation it would have on plant/animal/human life. Some things just aren't worth it. And these people may not be perfect, but at least they are trying to raise awareness to the issue. Rather than get on a judgmental high-horse, why not take a moment to listen, RESEARCH, and THEN make your minds up. Because this ISN'T just about us. It is about our children. It is about their children. It is about our Earth...our country...our home...and everything that we love.
