Did Jack Thompson Lose Weight? He Looks About $42K Lighter

November 19, 2008 -

As part of Jack Thompson's permanent disbarment by the Florida Supreme Court, the anti-game crusader was also ordered to pay $43,675. The figure represents the Florida Bar's cost to prosecute Thompson's case.

That amount was later reduced to $42,525 by the Bar. It now seems that Thompson has paid up.

As Duke Nukem would say, That's gotta hurt...

This piece of Thompson news comes - as it so often does - by way of Thompson himself. The ex-attorney circulated an e-mail today complaining that the Florida Supreme Court had not yet cashed his check:

Dear Chief Justice Quince:

Please advise today what you and the Court have done with my check for $42,525.27 that was sent you on November 6 to be held in trust by the Supreme Court.  

I find today, in talking with my bank, that the check has not been negotiated.  I’m not paying any interest on this amount.  You all had it from me on the date it was due.  

Regards, Jack Thompson

Could you please stop threating people, Mr. Thompson?

Is there any reason why you feel the need to bring up someone's religion in your post?

"Is there any reason why you feel the need to bring up someone's religion in your post?"

You ask that as if Jack is at all capable of thinking, let alone thinking of a half-decent excuse/apology for his criminally insane antics. Over 20 years of physical evidence says NO HE ISN'T. He swears blind that years of physical and sexual abuse is perfectly OK for a teenager's well being but a copy of Grand Theft Auto which played ABSOLUTELY NO PART in said abuse is evil incarnate.

Re: Did Jack Thompson Lose Weight? He Looks About $42K Lighter

Jack, please.  Please, for once, prove you're actually capable of following through on your threats!  Each time you blow hot air and empty promises, the only thing you become is more disgraced and pitied.  Don't you even have the dignity (if not the good sense) to let it end just at your disbarment?

You, sir, are such a glutton for (self-) punishment.

Re: Did Jack Thompson Lose Weight? He Looks About $42K Lighter

Just wondering, for someone who claims your treatment by the bar was motivated by your religious beliefs, why are you so obsessed with the fact EZK is a mormon? Isn't that just a tad hypocritical, telling the Bar that your religious stance should not be considered, and yet constantly harping on about someone elses'?

Oh God, I'd better spam some more press releases... If I keep reminding them I exist, then someone HAS to care! If I throw enough shit, something HAS to stick! But... what's that smell...?

Re: Did Jack Thompson Lose Weight? He Looks About $42K Lighter

They haven't cashed the check because JT wrote in the memo field:

Re: Did Jack Thompson Lose Weight? He Looks About $42K Lighter

So Jack...  How's the new job?  *snicker*

Re: Did Jack Thompson Lose Weight? He Looks About $42K Lighter

I think Jack should be considering himself lucky he even has the money to pay. Then again, douchebags are never grateful for anything but other people's misfortunes, so he probably finds it hilarious.

Re: Did Jack Thompson Lose Weight? He Looks About $42K Lighter

Only an idiot like Jack Thompson, the Metropolitian Moron of Miami, would complain about having to pay about $1,000 less than what was initially said.

Re: Did Jack Thompson Lose Weight? He Looks About $42K Lighter

I have to say that my favourite part about all this is the fact that Jack Thompson comes by this site on a regular basis to comment, even though every time he does, he's made to look like an idiot.

If he's not a sucker for punishment, I'm not sure who is...

Re: Did Jack Thompson Lose Weight? He Looks About $42K Lighter

I really don't think it is coming here that makes him look like an idiot. He manages that just fine with or without us.

Re: Did Jack Thompson Lose Weight? He Looks About $42K Lighter

DId anyone read the article Jack posted? The comments ont here are by absolute whackjobs lol. listen to this one, which was in response to a liberal who dared post on their site:

"Charles, Ohio
I suppose when the towel heads show up at your door to kill you you will then just have to shut up and take it. What people don't seem to remember is that FREEDOM IS NOT FREE. You need to take a walk around Arlington some time. Maybe then you will wake up and think God that there were conservatives that understood that the only freedoms we have are the ones that were fought for."

I actually LOL'd at work when I read this, what kind of dumbass thinks that they'll opent heir door and a terrorist will be standing there waiting to kill you lmao.

Re: Did Jack Thompson Lose Weight? He Looks About $42K Lighter

I'll take towel on head to pants on head any day of the week.

Re: Did Jack Thompson Lose Weight? He Looks About $42K Lighter

I read those comments too.  I'm not really all that surprised.  Like I said once, Jack's bound to find his own little group of sheeple on there who share his deluded, reactionary worldview.  It's all a matter of statistics, really.  Personally, I wouldn't even bother posting on there myself ans it's plain to see they'e all just as crazy as he is.  It's the Eagle Forum (which ought to be classified as a hate group if you know anything about them and Phyllis Schlafly) so what do you expect?

Re: Did Jack Thompson Lose Weight? He Looks About $42K Lighter

What really gets me is that people like that actually think they're free at all.  Last I checked, freedom included the right to disagree (and to wear a towel on your head, maybe?), as long as you don't inhibit the rights of others.  What people like this are trying their best to do is to associate disagreement with their points of view with a completely imagined inhibition of rights that is not supported by any facts.  They just start screaming "[insert 'liberal' cause] is gonna TAKE AWAY YOUR RIGHTS!" regardless of whether or not there is any factual basis for their claim.  It's the same crap that Limbaugh, Fox Noise, O'Really, and the other Deep Right mouthpieces have used for years to keep their cronies in power.  It's not freedom, it's tyranny (look it up Jack).

You're right Vash-HT, Jack's found his true calling on that site.  All 178 people who actually frequented that site prior to the GP direct links share the same distorted view of reality as Jack.

Re: Did Jack Thompson Lose Weight? He Looks About $42K Lighter

 

I wonder...

If the check and letter were submitted under the guise of a court filing, wouldn't they be required to reject it? The delay might be deciding whether or not the letter constitutes a legal filing, in which case accepting the check would mean violating their own order. Mr. Thompson has already shown his complete disregard for that order ever since it was issued, including his 'demand' for the itemized costs affidavit that was mentioned in the letter that was included with the check.

Trying for a small win on a technicality? That's not just good, it's Thompsonesque!

First off, the massive font and all caps makes you look like a retarded child.  Secondly, you have claimed other such laws to be bulletproof.  That is right before they were shot down for being unconstitutional.  Really I'm going to have to go with past experience on this one.

Re: Did Jack Thompson Lose Weight? He Looks About $42K Lighter

I'm gonna go out on a limb here and defend the devil for a minute after reading that letter he posted.He's got a right to a definitive judgement regarding how much he owes. If he's got one source telling him he owes X, and one source telling him he owes Y;  he's well within his rights to say, "So which one is it?"

Where he loses me, is he's handling it in typical thompson style.  Instead of keeping it civil he's making threats, accusing everyone (but him) of wrong doing, and just generally being a jerk.

However, honestly, the principle is sound.  It's not unreasonable to expect the courts to tell him one way or the other, "You owe X."

Re: Did Jack Thompson Lose Weight? He Looks About $42K Lighter

Thompson, just because they don't cash it right away doesn't mean you can demand it back.

Re: Did Jack Thompson Lose Weight? He Looks About $42K Lighter

Well, he certainly paid that off pretty quickly.  I'm kind of disappointed myself; I was kind of hoping that this would be a long, drawn-out, agonizing process for him.  Kind of like walking down a wide road in the middle of nowhere, stopping every five steps to crack yourself in the eyeball with a hammer.

And the road is a million miles long.

And the hammer is made of wank.

 

Also, I can no longer seem to find Jack's articles on Human Events, and he's not on their list of contributors.  Think they may have booted him already?

Re: Did Jack Thompson Lose Weight? He Looks About $42K Lighter

Nightwng raised the same question about Jack's absence from Human Events. I suspect that Jack was only on assignment to cover the meeting of Governors in Miami (not a bad choice considering that he's already in Miami by virtue of residence). When the meeting ended, so, too, did Jack's assignment.

So you write humor for Mad TV?

Re: Did Jack Thompson Lose Weight? He Looks About $42K Lighter

Nope, sorry.

Not going to give any web traffic or hits to a site which thought you would be a good choice as a writer. Shows a lack of common sense and moral fiber (perhaps a match made in heaven?).

In the meantime, you COULD consider stopping playing the martyr card. You aren't being put upon, you aren't being persecuted, and everything that has happened to you has been of your own making. It would behoove you to look back upon your life and see what you could have done differently to have been successful in what you wanted to do. They say hindsight is 20/20 and there is no amount of good luck that foolishness can't squander and no amount of bad luck that proper preperation could not over come.

Re: Did Jack Thompson Lose Weight? He Looks About $42K Lighter

Nice article, Jack. So, now you're a student of the Ann Coulter School of debate? Because that article sounds like one she'd write. Right down to the "Obama is a Muslim" line. (Ok, not quite that line. But it was close.)

Re: Did Jack Thompson Lose Weight? He Looks About $42K Lighter

I learned that you're not any better a "journalist" than you are a lawyer.

But then, you write for the same shithole that publishes Ann Coulter's insanity, so contgrats on that.  I guess.

Re: Did Jack Thompson Lose Weight? He Looks About $42K Lighter

Jack, the only thing I have ever learned from you is how much of a hateful, evil, self-rightous, intolerant, narrow-minded, bigoted douchebag you are and how a professional lawyer shouldn't act!

Re: Did Jack Thompson Lose Weight? He Looks About $42K Lighter

"Read it.  You might learn something"

Well then, we certainly know that this weeks article isn't about ethics.

Re: Did Jack Thompson Lose Weight? He Looks About $42K Lighter

Oh, I've learned quite a bit.  But not from that biased, incompetant, non-journalist garbage you spew.

That big Federal Case of yours was a great education.  If I ever decide to earn a degree in justice, I'll be sure to print out every single one, and hang them up on my bulletin board under the heading "The Do's And Don'ts Of Good Legal And Judicial Practice", right under the subheading of "Don'ts!".

You're a great help to future attornies, John Bruce.  The perfect example of what NOT to do as an attorney if they want to have a good, honorable, ethical, intelligent career.

ROFLMAO!!!

Re: Did Jack Thompson Lose Weight? He Looks About $42K Lighter

It's Jack's own fault for using a personal check instead of a cashier's check. I would never hand over a personal check in that amount, especially to a court.
