    My goodness, these folks are some *major* losers.
    Perhaps some of the saner folks in Seattle (if
    there actually are any sane people there) can
    take some kind of action. Nothing violent, you
    understand - something uniquely American, say...
    Hey! A baseball game! They could have a baseball
    game right outside the Freedom Socialist Party's
    headquarters. Of course, they'd want to be extra
    careful that any stray pitches or foul tips didn't
    hit the windows where the "Victory to the Iraqi
    Resistance" sign was located. Wouldn't they?

    "Victory to the Iraqi Resistance''

    As U.S. troops engage radical Islamic insurgents
    in Iraq, passersby on a major thoroughfare near
    downtown Seattle this week will notice a sign in
    a window front that urges: "Victory to the Iraqi

    The sign appears on the New Freeway Hall Community
    Center on multi-ethnic Rainier Avenue, home of the
    local branch of the Freedom Socialist Party.

    Luma Nichol, Seattle organizer of the party, told
    WorldNetDaily her group put up the sign because there
    has been a "distortion of the truth" about the Iraq
    war, and "we want to educate our neighbors."

    She said the reaction to the sign, noted by a
    contributor to, has been much
    more positive than negative.

    "There is a lot of opposition to the war," she told
    WND. "A lot of people understand that what the U.S.
    government is doing is a hostile invasion that violates
    the sovereignty of the Iraqi people."

    However, Tuesday, she said, a "not very eloquent person"
    telephoned and "called us all a bunch of fags, which is
    not very conducive to debate."

    But some opponents would call wishing victory for an
    enemy of the United States an act of sedition, she
    acknowledged when asked.

    "I'm sure there are some people that would see it that
    way, but the U.S. is the aggressor in this situation
    and in the wrong," she said.

    "A people whose country is being invaded and colonized
    by a hostile force have a right to defend themselves -
    that is what people did in World War II, and I stand on
    the side of the victims not the aggressors," Nichol declared.

    She said she agrees with people who call the ousted Iraqi
    leader Saddam Hussein a "dictator and vicious man."

    "But I don't believe that the U.S. government wants to
    bring liberty and democracy to Iraq," she said. "They
    have their own agenda - oil, making money for Halliburton
    and other firms. There is no evidence that the U.S. has
    the interest of the Iraqi people at heart."

    It's up to the Iraqi people to deal with their own dictator,
    she asserted.

    "How would you feel if somebody said Dick Cheney is a threat
    to democracy and invaded our country?"

    Nichol explained her group is a "socialist, feminist
    political party" that has been active in the U.S. for
    more than 30 years. As part of the Trotskyist wing of
    communism, it is distinguished from the Communist Party
    U.S.A. she said, "calling for socialist democracy in
    opposition to Stalinism."

    There isn't a country in the world that practices her
    party's model for government, she said, but Cuba comes
    the closest.

    You've gotta remember that Seattle is just San Francisco North.

    Mr. N Guest

    What city do you live in?

    I tell you what - how about we judge everyone who lives in your town by the
    actions of the biggest moron living there.

    Name the city.

  6. was located. Wouldn't they?
    San Fran is more gay in it's politics, while Seattle is more hardcore
    "red". I could see Seattle communists sending gays to gulags, for instance.

    Don't you think the people of that town could nominate someone who
    best describes their character? That'd be fair. Then we can ridicule
    them for who they think they are.
    That would be Seattle and:

    "I pass on illegal recordings because I am 'Big Brother'"
    "I didn't know he was a Saddam supporter. He gave me American
    "One nation...<pause>...Indivisible..."

  10. Boy are you out of it.
    Truth N Rights, May 1, 2004
  11. Yeah -- the pledge they said for decades before the right wing
    modified it. So what. This country was started on the ideals of
    religious FREEDOM. The FREEDOM to be religious, or not, is part of
    the deal.

  12. So what have you done for the world of music lately?

    I play guitar better than Kurt and Novoselic.

    not hard in the case of Novoselic since he plays bass.

    Around Seattle you can find just about any political faction on earth.
    This one is totally harmless consisting of homely gals with PMS problems
    and a lot of baggage you don't want to know about.
    They do this political rabble rousing to get attention in hopes of
    getting laid and finding a quality relationship with someone, anyone...
    I suspect most of them have been through the CPUSA without ever breeding.

  19. Hey stop clouding the discussion with historical facts!

  20. So what (if true). That skill and ten bucks will buy you a steak at
    the supermarket... It's not about who plays the "best" it's about who
    has something to say. You probably aren't actually in the music biz
    anyway so maybe you missed that part.
