Uhhhh! I have a question Beavis

Here is the news:

THE “sympathizers” of the Fitial administration” in the private sector will finance the costs of suing the U.S. government over the federalization law, Variety was told yesterday. Gov. Benigno R. Fitial, a former executive of Tan Holdings, left yesterday for the U.S. mainland and will be gone for 10 days. He said the lawsuit will focus on the “economic injury” that the provisions of the federalization law, or U.S. P.L. 110-229, will inflict on the CNMI. “I have now retained the firm of Jenner & Block to assist our government lawyers,” he said.

Here is my question:

Can I sue the government for economic injury in authorizing the Iraq War since my gas and power bills have doubled? Any sympathizers out there? Enjoy ten days of power Governor Nero!

Anybody can sue.

I read in MV that they would seek monetary compensation or a permanent injunction. Who gets the cash IF Uncle Sam pays? The privateers who paid the law firm or the CNMI govt? What am I talking about they are the same right?

Yes, you can sue, Jeff. I'm sure there are beaucoup sympathizers out there. All you need is a Johnny Cochran or similar and a website to generate a nice base of suit co-filers.

BTW, your gas and utilities have quadrupled...but who is counting?

Ahhhhhh, the 'Free World'.

How does he retain them if he's not the one paying?

Doesn't this seem illegal if someone else is paying the bill? Accepting money from people as Governor? Only in Saipan!

Governor Nero Tan needs to go!
