Remove This![edit]

This article should be removed. We don't need an entire article dedicated to these communist bastards!


As a soldier[edit]

I protect people who have a right to speak their mind. I defend these [lovely] people from the real enemy at hand. If they hate the war and my boss (Prez. Bush) so much I am more than willing to buy all the protestors a first class ticket to Iraq or Afghanistan, only if they buy me a dictionary in return. Let them understand the war at hand and let them fight for their own freedom because if I have an opportunity I would let the terrorist take on the Anti war protestors (i.e bomb them). I mean, come on, why should they get free speech? Its crude but why fight for scum bags that dont appricate the freedom they have. Shame on them and their families for speaking out. They should shut up like the rest of us. I want a part of terrorism to affect these hippies and lets see what reaction they have?

Fair use rationale for Image:Moveon f911.jpg[edit]

Image:Moveon f911.jpg is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in this Wikipedia article constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If there is other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images lacking such an explanation can be deleted one week after being tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.

a media ferret[edit]

I find it fascinating that the first sentence in Wikipedia concerning moveon.org contains:

"... one of the most successful Internet-based political groups in the United States ..." and the second sentence says "MoveOn has emerged as a powerful fundraising vehicle for Democratic Party candidates.”


Whereas, the first sentence in Wikipedia concerning “Move America Forward” contains:

"Move America Forward is a controversial, conservative non profit political action group ..." and later under a heading called, CONTROVERSY "... its actions have been almost wholly partisan ..."

So, moveon.org is successful and a powerful Democratic fund raiser but Move America Forward is controversial and wholly partisan. Huh?

Both of these organizations are classified as non-profit and educational, and therefore tax exempt under 501(c) provisions. The only difference between them, apart from their politics and their demeanor, is that Move America Forward is a charity, contributing funds and other donations to the troops, whereas, Moveon.org does not. 209.166.66.13 (talk) 22:00, 18 January 2008 (UTC) dragonbyte
