Subject: RE: Anti-Moore 'Revoke the Oscar' website
I liked 'Roger and Me' but haven't seen 'Bowling for Columbine'. Don't expect I'd find much humor in disarming America, if that's what it's about.

PayPal, for example. PayPal is being sued under the new USA PATRIOT Act for financial infractions. Saw the story a couple weeks ago but didn't mark it. the Patriot act is supposed to protect against terrorism, but it's first BIG use is against a money-collection company which is doing well. This is Organized Crime strong-arming the local merchants, folks. The Mafia 'protection' racket modernized and nationalized. And if Michael Moore or anyone else ever succeeds in disarming America, it'll only get worse. The PayPal suit is what they do when we're ARMED. No telling what they'd do (the organized criminals running the US govt) if we were dis-armed.

Did a google search for 'paypal patriot act'...first story out of the gate:

"Online auction company eBay said its PayPal auction payment unit is being investigated for possible violations of the USA Patriot Act. In its 10-K financial report to the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, eBay said its PayPal unit received a letter on March 28 from the U.S. Attorney's office for the Eastern District of Missouri about the alleged violations. The letter says that PayPal violated provisions in the Patriot Act between October 2001 and July 2002 by providing payment services to online gambling merchants..."

PayPal & the PATRIOT Act

The mafia and gambling debt codified into US law. The business of America is now to suck the lifeblood out of successful businesses...and run them overseas if possible. America's in for some hard, hard times, folks, and I'd rather face these vampires with guns. The Nazis in charge are going to grill Michael Moore on a spit while they screen 'Roger and Me' someday, and I bet he comes up with a dandy sequel to 'Columbine' in the process.
