Very creative and cool. Might like it even if I disagreed with you. Super graphic on that movie. It's all over the USA. Somebody told me it was on FOX today.It's all over the USA.
West Hollywood, CA
It was on FOX today.
And all I ask is an oxygen mask, a camisole and a tranquillizer injection. Hurry!
Okay, anybody can confirm this and push me further to the heart attack?

Hey Mr. Frogman,Well of course... What else could you expect from those "peace" defenders than insults and threats?
Recently I ran across your web site. Impressed with the banner, I posted the url to the alt.france, and soc.culture.canada newsgroups.
I've already been threatened. :) You must be doing something right! ;)
Never forget they side with terrorists and dictators.

I wonder if somewhere in France there might be a group of university students who operate a website compatible with yours: democratic, libertarian, anti-totalitarian, and (is it possible?) pro-American.
The reason I ask is that a group of fine young Americans at Oxford, who run an excellent site called Oxblog, have begun to organize a movement called The Oxford Democracy Forum:
They already have a number of affiliates, mostly in the USA, but including the courageous young fighters for democracy, the Student Movement Coordination Center for Democracy in Iran. It is important that they find some friendly voices in France. This business of cheese-eating surrender monkeys has become a sickness. The typical "thinking" American is unaware of the existence of great figures from the past, such as Raymond Aron. Voices of the present such as J-F Revel, André Glucksmann, Alain Finkielkraut and others are unheard. We need an antidote to the cheese-eating toxin.
Please help if you can.

I'm taking a deep long oxygen-rich breath and calling my Mom.
Well my dear John, I'm afraid the typical "thinking" French is not aware of Raymond Aron either.
Some of them do know about Sartre tho. And that's precisely the problem I guess.
As for the present voices, Bourdieu is dead but the Bourdivins and a bunch of other various impostors are whooping so loud that the fellows you mentioned are indeed, unheard.
Anyway, the message is duly posted and relayed.
I'm just a tad too old now and I've never been part of - or introduced to - the French universities (dig that) but I know for a fact that there are some people coming here who actually are.
I cordially invite them to get in touch with me and I will forward their mails to John.
They can also jump directly to www.oxdem.org and see what can be done.
Although I'm not very optimist when it comes to the orientation of French universities, I won't make any assumptions considering what I've just told you about my (lack of) knowledge of this environment.
That being said, I hope my pessimism will be irrevocably contradicted by a significant mobilization of the French students in favor of democracy and freedom, alongside their American, British and Iranian counterparts.
C'mon. I dare you to surprise me.
