In all honesty, I don't think FTL's sig pic is entirely appropriate. Fine for in here, whatever, but I don't think it belongs elsewhere on the site.

Well, I don't think KV posts anywhere else as FTL so it probably doesn't matter. Although...if I had my druthers I'd prefer that the site rules be enforced without regard to the forum; perhaps we'd have a little less hate-style speechifying in here.

In any event, then, looking at the other shot you posted (thanks for helping to clarify), I suppose the idea is that we're torturing the Statue of Liberty by (1) making her stand on a box while (2) holding a clipboard and a torch-shaped microphone (sorry, that's what it reminds me of). That can only mean that we're demonstrating our dislike of the gifts the French people give us.

Socialism is a philosophy of failure, the creed of ignorance, and the gospel of envy; its inherent virtue is the equal sharing of misery. (Winston Churchill)

It is said that a picture is worth a thousand words, but to put it bluntly that one doesn't say anything of note to me. My consideration was that you felt it important enough to attach as a sig to your posts, so I thought you might not mind explaining it's importance. No loss to me (or anyone else) if you don't.
In a nutshell...

Bush has put Lady Liberty herself into a torture position. Our rights have been trampled upon just like the rights of the abused at Abu Ghraib.

It is actually pretty clever.

I don't agree with him, but it is an image that conveys a powerful message.

That is my honest assesment.

Yeah. And who do you think has to hear the complaints on the SL forum?

Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.

Wow. Never noticed it before.
