Sgt. Peter Damon says Moore recycled old news footage of Damon, and used it in a way that made him seem anti-war.

Is there anything more un-American than being against war?

I tell, ya. Kids these days!

Who comes up with these figures? (I know, I know: lawyers).

He has found a way to try to make Moore and NBC et al support him in high style for the rest of his days.

I think he has a point and would probably be on his side if he was asking for a realistic amount of money. To most people he was a short insignificant blip across their eyeballs and the fact that they assume this guy they will never even think about again is against the war in no way has any affect, good or bad, upon his life.

If he feels that he should be given restitution because they gave a false impression, fine. But he is going to make more enemies than friends by looking so greedy.

Too bad he lost his arms. He's not the only one, either. Guaranteed to be invalids for life.

And the beat goes on…

"...The scene appears in a sequence that talks about how the government is abandoning veterans....

... The non-profit group Homes For Our Troops also built a home for the Damon family, specially designed for Peter’s physical needs...."

Yeah, that lousy commie Moore was pointing out how our flag wavin' bureaucrats are shafting vets. This guys not going to get a specially designed home from his grateful government and he may very well get the shaft like so many other vets.

If he sues Moore at least he won't wind up eating cat food.

When is this government going to pass some meaningful tort reform that combats these nuisance lawsuits?

Ah, that's the conundrum! This government, being the Congress, is full of lawyers.
It's like asking the sharks to protect swimmers from the barracudas eye popping smiley

...or asking for Congressional term limits!

Funny how when a Lib wants to sue someone they're low life leeches but when a
someone sues a Lib the right wingers are all for it. My My My.

Why doesn't he sue "Duh"bya for sending him over there under false pretense's?

Probably not possible. He's above every other law, apparently.

Pay him scale for the time he was in the flick.

If he is SAG or AFTRA, then hey, pay him a bit more.

But yeah, time for these nuisance suits to go away for good.

He has bigger problems than Moore and should spend his time accordingly.



Strength without compassion is brutality. Compassion without strength is weakness.

We must train our minds to desire what the situation demands.

Apparently, the guy changed his stance on the war in order to follow the dollarsigns once he realized who would be the easiest to sue. What a surprise.
