if you criticize the government you have to leave the country, because that is a serious thought crime.

Regarding the "nazi" comment
by aestetix 12:57am Mon Mar 24 '03 (Modified on 4:50pm Wed Mar 26 '03)
comment#6612

Actually, a close look at his tattoo shows differently. The nazi swastika is flipped vertically, and angled 45 degrees... the swastika he has is a deeply relgious symbol of many cultures that even predates the christian cross by around four thousand years. If you look at Egyptian and Mesopotamian art, you'll find the swastika all over the place. In fact, until the Nazi party rose in Germany, you could find the swastika on a lot of items in the US. I don't know if that guy knew that, but now you do :)

Get a clue - he is making fun of the people who are protesting and if you have not seen that around the country on other signs you are all really slow. And to the person who made fun of the woman who said go to France - I have left the country and I agree with her. If you do not like the US or what we do, get out. There are 20 year olds in the Middle East right now giving their lives so you can have this little board to make fun of the war. So congratulations on being real assholes, they are fighting a real menace of a man who supports people whom contributed to 9/11. Maybe that day didn't effect you - but it did effect a lot of people, including me. So think before you post pictures and attempt to mock a very serious issue.

Guess I'm pretty damn slow myself then because I haven't seen a sudden surge in protest signs that mispell the word moron.

You said there are 20 year-olds fighting for the right to have this board to make fun of war.

So our troops are over in the Middle East fighting poor, barefoot Iraqis in order to uphold the First Amendment?

I can't figure that one out. Guess I'm a moran, too.

I think the sign in question is referring to Virginia Congressman Jim Moran who often, due to a knack for saying the wrong thing, has often been synonymous with Moron.

don't think so

Interesting theory, but I doubt this guy knows that there's a congressman named Moran.

<B>Beware The Illusion of Health

The truth is that NONE of us in North America are as
healthy as it appears that we are.

The Natural Killer cell function, which is the first line of defense in our immune system, was at least 29% lower in 1997 than what it was in 1981, having dropped from 152 Litic Units (LU) to 108 LU in 1997 (probably due primarily to the unavoidable high levels of toxins in our environment). Plus the rate of decline is accelerating -- the last six years it has averaged a drop of 3% a year! Now it is probably dropping at 4% or more per year!

Based on this fact, who can claim to be healthy? When your immune system is down 29% and can be dropping by 3-4% per year. You can be in "great shape" in terms of your muscles and appearance. However, one day you may be feeling fine, and then you are shocked to discover you have a life threatening disease.

The unavoidable shocking truth is that 95% of Americans will die as a victim of heart/circulatory disease (50%), cancer (33%) and diabetes (12%). That's 95%! This doesn't even include a host of other diseases like arthritis, chronic fatigue syndrome, multiple sclerosis, Hepatitis C (liver infection, predicted to become a bigger problem than AIDS), etc.

What are you doing to make sure you aren't going to be part of that 95%?

Add to that the fact that close to 100% of us began developing heart disease when we were children -- it just doesn't become evident for some 40 odd years. Did you know that autopsies done on soldiers who died in combat in the Vietnam war revealed that A large % of them had advanced heart disease? These young men were mostly teenagers who appeared to be "healthy".

Did you know that the very FIRST symptom of a serious heart condition over 50% of the time is a FATAL heart attack?

Did you know that you have cancer cells developing every day in your body? 100% of the population does too, and that includes you and me. As soon as your personal immune system gets weak enough, the cancer may take over. A strong immune system is the only thing that stands between you and full blown cancer.

And because our immune system function is already down over 29% and falling, 33% of Americans will die from cancer. Most cancer takes 5-30 years to develop to the point were it is detectable. Until you have an obvious symptom, you may feel and look fine, even though you've been growing a deadly tumor for up to 30 years.

If you inherited strong reserves, these problems may take years to fully develop; if not, heart disease, cancer, diabetes, arthritis, etc. manifest much earlier in children. As an example, a few years back in Everett, Washington, a 15 year old basketball player suddenly died during a Monday night game against Anacortes High School. His heart just suddenly stopped for no apparent cause. CPR was done immediately until the medics arrived, who worked on him for another 30 minutes. Even an autopsy did not reveal the cause of death. This was a young athlete that appeared to be healthy, but obviously was not.

It is ignorance or foolishness to rely on just how you look or feel or a blood test. Those indicators, though valid, are too limited.

Therefore, I say EVERYONE needs to do something -- not just to maintain our "illusion of health", but to begin immediately to regain health before the hidden problems manifest.

"Protection" was the key word maybe 15 years ago. We are beyond just needing protection -- we need a regular foundational health program: Diet, exercise, and nutritional supplements.
This is true even if we feel and look healthy and a doctor gives you his OPINION that you are in "perfect health." Would you assume that a car is "healthy" just because it is clean and polished on the outside? It might even be running fine today, but if the oil has never been changed, it could be "suddenly" ready for the junk yard tomorrow without any advanced warning.

What is more important than your health or your family's health? </B>

Alright then Mrs.. "It's alright to kill Iraqis because someone I know died in the WTC"

Why don't you make some time and read this, just to get reacquainted with your dear ol'land o'the free...

http://www.deoxy.org/wc/warcrim2.htm

Get past the first paragraphs that sound a bit exaggerated, the read into the past, and remember things that Dear Abby (CNN,ABC and such) seem to overlook with their very convenient short memory.

After you read it, tell me, do you still agree in getting your sons and daughters killed in an effort to commit genocide (then again, let's kill the Iraqis, they got our oil!!)

Moran and moron

comment#7261

Obviously the "moran" is a spelling error typical of the rich white trash of st chuck, as is the "missles" written by the genocidal chicken-hawk in another picture. But the STL area has associated "moran" and "moron" for years. In April 1997, exactly the same time of the inauguration of police chief fascist Uncle Tom Harmon as mayor of the city, a huge wave of police violence occurred against poor city residents. Whiteboy racist Tom Moran led a gang of police thugs in a vicious, LAPD style attack on an innocent Black gentleman who was trying to turn off a malfunctioning burglar alarm. Many immediately referred to the scumbag officer as MORON. Moron should have been convicted of crimes and given the death penalty or life imprisonment with an ugly gay rapist, but just like the original Rodney King trial, a jury of white supremacist scum in Kay Cee acquitted Moron.

As to supporting "our" troops, another murderous whiteboy racist STL cop is a Gulf War "veteran". Englehardt, prizefighter in the lame "guns & hoses" boxing tournament, in 1994 used his boxing skills to punch a defenseless elderly Black gentleman suffering a sickle cell anemia episode. Hell will freeze over before I support any white cop who "served" in the US military. Englehardt probably took pleasure in killing Arab babies. Too bad Englehardt wasn't hit by a Scud missile (not being from st chuck, I know how to spell it) or killed by Gulf War Syndrome.

Morons on both side of the fence!

Yeah, so the pro-war protestors aren't that bright, big surprise. But that is a pretty funny picture of the guys with the misspellings... you would think they might take five minutes to check spellings of those words if they're going to go through the trouble of making a SIGN, for cryin' out loud. But then again, if any of them actually THOUGHT about anything that long they'd probably get a brain hemorrhage. And I also would have to say that the dude with the backwards swastika is probably an ex(?)-nazi skinhead who probably helped terrorize the punk scene here in the late '80s... I wouldn't doubt it. None of them were too bright, either. 'Course, he could also just be some lamebrane rural nazi. Not much difference between the two, I guess, 'cept for some music taste differences (Charlie Daniels Band or Skrewdriver? Who cares?). But let's face it, there were plenty of anti-war protestors at Sunday's rally with Mercedes-Benz logos on their signs. What does Mercedes-Benz have to do with the war in Iraq?

Wow! I can't believe this guy thinks the Morans need to get a brain! Mr. Moran is so smart, he can pull QUARTERS out of his EAR!! This guy with the sign.... he just doesn't get it. He still shouldn't pick on Mr. Moran, though.

Nazi tattoo

Actually, I very much doubt that this guy is a fan of pre-Christian cultures and religions. If you look at the tattoo, it's *really* poor quality, which means it's probably a prison tat. Which also means that's why it's facing the wrong way.

If fascists are spotted mingling amongst the left, we have forces and methods of pushing them out. Oddly, the right has no such ability. This may be due to lack of experience, but probably has more to do with how close they are in their beliefs.

No they're not fighting for any such thing. Thats the problem with this war, IRAQ WASN'T INVLOVED IN 9/11, nor WAS IRAQ THREATENING OUR FREEDOMS. Iraq is a piss ant little country in the middle of the desert, important to the BFEE only because of its oil content, not the presence of innocent civilians.

We are fighting this war for a number of different reasons. I'm sure oil is an important part that politicians are trying to cover up, but there are innocent people being tortured in Iraq and just because they don't ask for help (mainly because they'll get killed if they ask) doesn't mean that they shouldn't get it. If a man was being mugged on the side of the road and couldn't yell for help, if you knew you had the capability to save him, wouldn't you do it? I have many family members fighting in Iraq and I support the war all the way. It is such a shame that Saddam Hussein (I'm sure that's mispelled, please don't start some web page to make fun of it, the same way this page was started) couldn't comprimise. We did try and some things are worth fighting for. I say the innocent people in Iraq being tortured by this malovent tyrant is one of those things!

Just as the Bush-haters use terms like "Bushit" and "Ashkkkroft", so do the freepers. So, a "moran" is a reference to Jim Moran, get it?

I thought only freepers were stupid and humorless.
