I will check my fire SINSULL. For your consumption only, "frenching" is our substitute for the other "F" word...get it?

Lepus-we've been called worse things. So what!

We care for our own--you jump one Marine, 176,000 Marines will bring to bear on you.

Sure nothing harms you, you are nothing.

Get a clue doboy

Semper Fidelis
I'm sorry, but I'm going to have to put an end to this discussion. Mudcat is a folk music forum. We tolerate civil discussions of other things that may be of interest to folk musicians. We invite everybody who has an interest in music to join our community, but we do not invite outsiders to come in just to gang up against opinions they disagree with. That's just not fair.
No, we don't care to have a flame war going on here. Take it somewhere else.
Thank you.

Norton1, it wasn't an "email" I sent you. It was a copy of a post that was deleted by Joe. Go ahead and send it around---I still stand by it, and have repeated most of it since. But it was deleted as a personal attack, so I will do as Joe asked, and not re-post it.

The really sad thing is that for all your whining that were "persona non grata" and that you've recieved no "respect for (your) views," you were getting lots of support from, well, pretty much everyone but me. And by inviting your gang of washed-up jarheads to come and "vent their rage," you've stabbed all of those supporters in the back. And you continue to inflame them on your fascist forum, encouraging them to declare "war" on the Mudcat. This isn't harming me a bit---trust me, none of you are mentally capable of hurting my feelings, making me angry, or annoying me. Like JtS said, I'm only laughing at you. What you are damaging is this forum, and I hope that wasn't your intention, Norton1.

Being a former Marine may I ask all of you that are against our taking Saddam out a question? Yes? Thank you.

Is Saddam a good leader and carer of his people? Has he committed atrocities? How about when he gassed the women and children of the Kurd ethnicity? Around 5,000 if I remember correctly. I guess if it doesn't affect you it is perfectly OK.

After reading this thread I believe some of you think if we ignore these kind of people, they will just go away. Neville Chamberlain thought so.

So let us see how all this plays out. I think some if not most of you will be suprised.

But you Lepus Rex. You beat it all. I have known people like you and all you want is a good time at others expense.

I will not lower my self to your level because if I did only one would walk away. And believe me I would give it my best shot. Unlike you who wants everthing without having earned it.

Last but not least, your picture scared the hell out of me.

Kumbaya???? Now that IS a low blow! I went to your site, MFH, and read Lepus' email. I believe that the man is mentally ill. No one here is defending his position, at least as far as I can tell.

If you had read through this thread and others, you would know that.

I admit I have no nads. Being female, I refuse to apologize for it. I do however have NADS. And if you are going to stay, you may want to check out the postings of a certain catspaw who will provide more than you ever wanted to know about them.

Be forewarned. Spaw was a conscientious objector in the Viet Nam War and spent time in jail rather than flee to Canada. He is a man of principle as well as rather rude sense of humor.

I do have a question for you and I hope you will answer it seriously and with some thought. Marines go to war to defend the rights of Americans. One of those rights is free speech. How do you resolve the quandary of having that right used to protest the very war you are fighting? And can you at least see (not agree) that people using that right of free speech to object to what they perceive as illegal acts by their own government are patriotic?

I am liberal but hardly a genius. And though I know I am going to regret this - I honestly don't know what "frenching" means. Maybe I am; maybe I'm not.

A serious response will no doubt produce more dialogue. More name-calling and I am out of here.

Forgive the potty mouth loonies. The little guys can't help it. See, in horseracing, as a race comes up you start making the horses 'hotter' meaning you start shoveling in the oats. (You do just the opposite after the racing season- you cut the oats. So there is hope for these people too.) It makes the horse rather wild and hard to handle but it gives him a mean spirit and lots of energy.)

Obviously, the military does the same thing to its recruits. Men, of course, don't require the pumping.

I wonder how it feels to know that you're being force fed?

You have not lost my respect. But I am worried about you. I hope you will get some help soon. You want to be in good shape when your daughter gets home. She's going to need you to be there for her.

You called my comments "puky" I have no serious response to that. I understand that you may be upset but you are talking like a 12 year old. Do you want to talk or pick fights?

For what its worth I pray that your daughter and her comrades come home safely to a warm welcome. I pray that corporal Josh comes home safely and can forgive his countrymen. I pray that the war is quick and that the outcome is much better than I expect it to be.

I have always had great respect for you, and still do. I just think it was a mistaken judgement to sic your friends on this forum by saying "Have a riot - I should have given you, ipscone, this a long time ago. Oh well - never too late"

Yes, Mick. Thanks. It is the first time I ever felt the need to defend you and felt a little silly doing it. For our guests: Big Mick is huge. And I wanted to respect your wishes - if you did not care enough about them to share your background, I was not about to interfere.

Rock - I have seen numerous signs at peace rallies saying "Bring our children home safe". Lepus is the only person I know of who wishes them harm. I do not know his story but assume chemical dependency or mental illness is at the base of his animosity.

Gentlemen (and ladies?) joining us from the Marine site. I understand your outrage. I even understand Norton!'s frustration at the earlier posts leading to his invitation to you to set us straight. Although I too object to his use of this site for a flame war. Now that you are here, I would welcome any ideas you choose to share. You will find intelligent, well informed posters who do not resort to name calling and personal attacks whemn they meet opposition.

Lastly, I am deeply saddened at the inhuman disregard shown to one of our members who was asking for respect and consideration for his daughter who has put herself in harm's way for us - WHETHER YOU WANTED HER TO OR NOT IS NOT THE ISSUE. This group has always celebrated the birth of a child - Max's, Wesley's, and too many grandchildren to list - and supported the parents through illnesses and death. What is wrong with you?

Actually I am more angry than sad at this. If you wish to argue with me about it, take it to the PMs. If you have something intelligent to say, say it here and be ready to defend it when there is intelligent disagreement. In my opinion, this is the most meanspirited, disgraceful display I have ever witnessed on Mudcat.

Rant over.

Well what would you suggest Mick? I got tired of those two bottom feeders - and the e-mail lepus sent was deleted for a reason - he's just a sick pup. Figured you all would enjoy bumping noses with the far right for a change. Kind of puts it all in perspective doesn't it?

But the good side of this - Lepus told me he loves me - said I was his heroooo - now ain't that sweet?

Anyone wants a copy of the e-mail that lupus sent me I'll be glad to send it on -

And I doubt that many of you had much respect for my views anyway. When I was solid for peace and no war I was good to go here - when I changed my opinion then the persona non grata began. Do or don't respect - makes no difference -

Rock there are a lot more people who support them. Even amog the protesters. The vast majorty of Frenchmen and Germans don't get on the news. They are mature enough to seperate the young men from the policies which sent them there. It is the assholes that get the publicity. You rarely do see placards saying, "Be sensible" or Stop whining" and if someone were to carry such signs, they'd never get on the news. In the news coverage, what you see are the whiney attention hounds. Those who say outrageous thing to get attention get the most attention, just as Lepus and Greg did hear. As you can see, they certainly do not speak for the majority.

And the truth is France, Germany, and Belgium are anti American. Funny thing is that when I see the news, when I see Internet sites, all I see are placards with picutures of our commander in chief painted up to look like Hitler. "No blood for oil" blah blah blah blah. But never have I seen a placard that says, I love our troops and an anti war demonstration.

Some say musicians are enlightened after reading through this forum I find this very hard to believe! Have any of you ever visited an oppressed Third World Country? I suspect that you are to comfortable in your nice soft life to visit anywhere but your local Starbucks!

Put down your signs with your senseless slogans because you look stupid holding them and chanting like a bunch of trolls! You have given nothing to this great Nation you only take, take, take because that is your way! You are ungrateful and do not appreciate the right that were bought in other peoples blood and lives, You squander what has been given to you and you only think of yourselves!

I for one am sick and tired of hearing you run your sewers! I am not alone and I am proud to say that we outnumber you!! Open your eyes! You are a bunch of self centered whiny brats that need a spanking! You hate this country, You spit on our way of life! I challenge you to find somewhere else to live! I hear Iran is looking for some "Artists" Go ahead put your money where your mouths are, Or are you too cowardly to do this? Coward now that is a word you should know well!

I know you don't care and you will not take to heart anything said here, You will go back to sipping your Starbucks and smoking your weed, Just think about who gave you your freedoms.

This is for Greg F's benefit....just a sample of his ignorance.

From 1927 to 1941, a unit of the United States Marine Corps, the Fourth Marines, was assigned to Shanghai, China, where its members were able to observe firsthand some of the events that led to World War Two. The Fourth Marines sailed to Shanghai from their home base in San Diego, California in February 1927 in order to protect American citizens and property in Shanghai's International Settlement. Initially, the threat to the Americans came from a conflict internal to China, but, within a few years, it evolved into one resulting from the tensions between China and Japan.

During their fourteen years in Shanghai, the Fourth Marines were exposed to activities that would not gain the full attention of most Americans until the United States became directly involved in the war. Although the Fourth Marines were a relatively small unit (consisting at various times of between 1,200 to 1,600 men) awash in a sea of 3,000,000 Chinese nationals and tens of thousands of other foreign citizens living in Shanghai, they affected the local economy as well as local opinions of Americans, serving as "unofficial ambassadors" to the local populace. Likewise, their opinions of Chinese citizens and culture were shaped by their experiences in Shanghai.

The traditional role of the Marines has been one of a seagoing assault force, as opposed to one of a permanent ground force. Therefore, the Fourth Marines' prolonged presence in Shanghai was rather unique. Extended periods of military inactivity and relegation to the status of a quasi-police force in a war zone had a strong impact on the perceptions and morale of the members of the Fourth Marines. Their actions and opinions were directly shaped by the role to which they were assigned in Shanghai.

However the Corps does not teach us about our history?
Now, for Lupussy, I am not an aging man, I'll give you my address and then let's see if you can come here and "whoop me", kid.

So Norton you invited a bunch of you friends to come a call out some playground names. Please tell me how this supports the kids overseas.

Rock its kinda hard to believe that "alpha male". It's my experience that the more scared a dog is the more he barks. You are barking like a toy poodle. Ebbie is a woman, I doubt that she has any women for you. Its also my experience that guys who brag about their manhood like you do have "problems" down below. Perhaps this will help. For the Rock

I know all retired ex marines aren't like y'all. It's kinda interesting how so many immature grown men found each other.

Now, do ya want to have a dicsussion or are ya gonna call us some more names. I seem to recall a rhyme from childhood, something about sticks and stones....

Rock, I could care less what you are. What makes you think you have a lock on that? Or is that some kind of threat? Trust me, you bark up the wrong tree with me on that one.

Your disruption of this conversation shows a lack of good judgement. The best thing to do with know it all jerks is to ignore them.

Okay, how about a clean slate? Maybe I grouped you in with those two shitbags. Can we be friends CarolC? First you gotta tell me you respect the military though or we'll get nowhere fast.....

Guest, Quit pretending your 10 people unless you are seriously ill with schizophrenia, which then you can be forgiven.
McGrath- I have heard this sentiment too many times from people who are pro-war, "We should just wipe all those Iraqi bastards off the face of the earth." I do not mean to generalize here. I am just saying I have heard it, and I can't see a reason for saying it except racism being involved.
I have a problem when generalizations about pro-peace people are made. For the most part, we are pro-troops and have been labeled by media anti-troops. I do not want harm to come to any of the children of this war. I do not want the violence and death and blood on anyones hands. I have seen what Vietnam did to the vets. I have seen too many fucked up heads after that war and I don't like the idea of this new generation of kids having to face the same head shit the Vietnam vets did. I hope it doesn't happen. I hope they come home sooner than later. I tried to be a part of saving the troops from going into this war, now all I can do is be a part of trying to get them home.
Peace. Rustic

You know nothing about me The Rock. So don't presume. Check out my posts in the beginning of this thread. But when I said what I did in those posts, I wasn't talking about people like you.

Gee, I wonder why you don't talk to Lupus Rex the same way. Okay I can tone it down. You don't have confidence in our troops, hell lady, what else do they have to do to earn it? They are doing excellent work while you and your guitar pickin friends sit back here and snipe at them. How about a little support? A little encouragement for christs sake? Is that too much to expect? What ever happend to support the troops even if you disagree with the war? I frankly don't care what you think of me. I know what I've done, I know what I've sacraficed, and when I hear people talk out their ass, it gets my dander up know what I mean? I can be nice CarolC, I really can, give me a chance, Pleeeeeeeese!

Norton, I have just visited the site. Brother, you need to apologize. That was inexcusable. I am very disappointed in you and your fellow Marines. When you do what you did, you lowered yourselves to the same level as those you criticise. Lepus and Greg should only strike you as young people talking about something which they have no experience at, and as know it alls that will learn as they grow. To be sure their comments are stupid, but why bother? And are we now going to have a bunch of young, hotshit, full of themselves, Marines patrolling the Mudcat and blasting anyone who doesn't fit their narrow view of what is right? Are they going to start attacking me and my patriotism because I don't fit their view of what is right? Where is their sense of honor?

How could you?

Mick

Thanks, Norton1, for inviting your flamer pals. You're such a dear. ;}

---Lepus Rex

Norton1's invitiation:

Want to tell a couple of Bottom feeding idiots what you think?
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
The link below will take you to the Mudcat Forum. It's a place where folk musicians hang out. Two individuals are just sick puppies - maybe they need a dose of you all to assist them in venting their rage. The two in particular are Lepus Rex and Greg F - read the whole thread before you reply. You do not need to register and if you put no name in you will show as a guest.

Have a riot - I should have given you, ipscone, this a long time ago. Oh well - never too late -

Steve
