related story from last Oct. No word if Fatboy Mikey Moore
has a similar organization in place to help the wounded...
:
CBS4) MIDDLEBORO A veteran from Middleboro, badly wounded in Iraq, is waking up in his new home on Friday, thanks to dozens of people who built it for him.

Army Sergeant Peter Damon and his family just moved into a Middleboro home on Thursday. Its unique features are designed to help Damon, who lost his arms two years ago in an explosion while working on a helicopter.

“I can't thank everyone who worked on this house enough,” says Damon. “This is such a wonderful thing that people would invest their time and there generosity into coming up here and working on a project like this.”

The new home was made possible by “Homes For Our Troops” – an organization dedicated to helping injured war veterans.

59 different companies joined the effort to help build the home.

This isn't the first time I've heard someone complaining that Moore took their statements out of context in "Fahrenheit 9-11".

Memo to Michael Moore;
Don't eat all of those steaks and fries and stuff your fat face any time soon. Looks like you will be coughing up $85,000,000.00 to someone who actually deserves it a hell of a lot more than you! Hope you enjoy writing that check you fat bozo assclown!.

Yes it is, but the two scummers who ran Miramax were pushed out by Disney and now have their own new company.

No, but I'm certain he would be willing to attend any pot-luck affairs that might be organized.

Sgt. Damon:

Please Kick MM's BIG FAT A@@ and take his name. (and get your $85MM from him to boot)

Good luck and good hunting.

Dear MM: how does it feel to be on the other side of the lense, you FAT, BLOATED PURVEYOR OF PERNICIOUS PROPAGANDA!

If this is a war, then this is how it must be fought. Moore is a lying sack who's made a comfortable living using people to attack and hurt those he disagrees with. $85 million is a nice bit of pay back.

The snip-it appears in Moore’s film "Fahrenheit 9/11."

Where do these "journalists" go to school? The word is snippet.

"Injured Vet Sues Michael Moore For $85 Million"

Excellent!
The fat, ugly, smelly liar must be ruthlessly hunted down and dealt with according to the full force of the law.
It'd be poetic justice if he is forced to disgorge some of the millions he grabbed for himself through his web of deceit, fraud and lies.

I remember watching that pile of crap (not all the way through) but he stated that Porter Goss lied about having a 1-800 number to contact him about concerns and complaints...Moore made it appear as if Goss was lying and put a direct phone number to his D.C. office...of course...Goss did have an 800 number...it was a 1-866 exchange that directed to his Florida and D.C. offices.

But of course..Goss was a liar because he didn't say 866...and said 800.

Newsflash for Moore...866 is still in the 800's and is a toll free #.

I pray this Iraq vet gets the full 85 million...leaving Moore with marginal profits for his lie/slander fest he was so richly applauded for.

Amazing how someone like Dimebag Darrell Abbott (guitarist for Pantera/Damageplan) is murdered in cold blood on-stage for doing nothing but making music and people laugh and then we have the other side of the "entertainment" spectrum.. Michael Moore..who slanders the U.S. Military, President, Vice President, the United States in general and gets awards and hundreds of millions of dollars and still roams the earth.

God is keeping him around for some reason...why? I have no f-cking clue.

"I normally don't like high priced lawsuits, however I am behind Sgt. Damon on this."

Normally I agree, but in this case Fatso attempted to steal this Soldier's honor.

Not to mention the additional deaths his propaganda piece caused.

I bet Moore will try to settle out of court, but I have a feeling this Soldier wants to continue fighting the war by taking him down in court.

I hope that the $85 million is more than he has so that he is not only wiped out but also forced to pay on the judgement from any future "work" as well.

Ha Ha nice one Brilliant.
Indeed his only way out is to claim that F9 11 was "art" or "fiction" or his "opinion".

I love it when folks like Michael Moore paint themselves into a corner and then have to sit there and watch the paint dry!

If he has a case there will be hundreds of lawyers that will take it for 1/3 plus expenses. He won't have to pay a dime.
