Here's what Wikipedia had to say:Alteh said:
Wikipedia.org said:In a 2005 interview by Howard Stern, comedian George Lopez claimed that he and Mencia were involved in a physical altercation at a comedy club. Lopez alleged that Mencia appropriated 13 minutes of Lopez' material, without permission, for Mencia's HBO comedy special. Lopez told Stern, "It's not really a feud, I mean, I think I won." Shortly afterwards, comedian Joe Rogan wrote a post on his website publicly accusing Mencia of being a plagiarist, alleging that Mencia stole jokes from a number of comedians.
Mencia responded to the accusations while being interviewed on Tucson's The Frank Show, stating that Joe Rogan had fabricated these allegations out of jealousy. On his own website, Mencia denied accusations of plagiarism, arguing that the material in question was too generic to be attributed to any single comedian. Additionally, he confirms Lopez's statement that there is no feud between them.
.... Have you read the Constitution? The First Amendment protects your speech (i.e., political speech) from the Federal Government, and the 14th Amendment's Due Process Clause applies the First Amendment to the States..MC said:Freedom of Speech only works as long as you are not violating anyone else's rights. Meaning that if you called someone a racial name does not give you the freedom of speech.
The Constitution doesn't give you the right to "bear arms." It gives the State the right to organize a militia..Mad_AxMan said:i dont give a rats ass about the constitution, this forum doesnt work by the constitution, it works by the AUP.
go read that instead, its much more important
oh and for the record, i wont support a constitution that gives you the right to bear arms for no good reason. why do you think theres so much gun crime in america? could it be because.... THERE ARE SO MANY GUNS?!
Thank you, I agree completely. I also hate how he is being used as Comedy Central's "flag ship" figure. I can't watch Comedy Central without seeing 40 damn Mencia comercials everytime I watch ANY program.SailorAlea said:.... Have you read the Constitution?

An individual cannot infringe upon another individual's right to "free speech."
In any case, I don't find Mencia funny at all. He's crude, has numerous annoying habits like saying "DO DO DO!" and he plays the Latino card way too much.
As a 'constitutional sidenote,' the rights guaranteed to you by the Bill of Rights are fundamental, but not absolute. If the state/federal government can pass the 'strict scrutiny' test--meaning the law must:
1) serve a compelling government interest
2) be narrowly tailored, the least restrictive possible
The government can restrict any of the fundamental rights (speech, bearing arms, assembly, petition, speedy trial, grand jury, press, religion, etc) if it has a good enough reason to do so.
Civics lesson complete!
