57. "Vote4Kerry" has less than 40 posts on DU & joined up last week
Prolly a photoshop. The guy who posted this (Vote4Kerry) has less than 40 posts on DU & joined last week. I'd put my money on it being a freeper trolling for panicky liberals. If no one can verify this, he's just a dude screaming "boo" in the dark.

19. People need to start making the Stalin connection more and more
Edited on Mon Nov-22-04 09:26 AM by jdj
and drop the Hitler one.

People in Russia still can't talk about Stalin. The world still can't get it's mind around what happened in Stalinism, unfortunately, because the dynamic is programmed as a family dynamic in early childhood which the world apparently is not ready to examine yet, to our detriment; the whole good/bad, black/white thing that we get programmed with in early early childhood to make us socially acceptable, there is no depth of understanding or examination given to children (I'm talking 2 and 3 years old) because they can't take depth in yet, there are simply rules, and one must fall in line. This is the mentality of these people, they so desperately want a Daddy to give their blind obedience to...it is the easiest way to function for people who are psychologically overwhelmede by paradox and contrast. (Probably because of brutality in their own early childhood, and to see their Daddy for what he was (or Mommy) would probably break irreparably their already broken mind).

Well, we've arrived at Stalinism, where one can be made "bad" specific to the current right-this-second circumstance, and one must keep weeding out the bad, and declaring loyalty to the captain of the good. The terms mean nothing of course, but for there to be some good there must always be some bad, and these bad must be shamed and punished, the public spectacle must be perpetual.

Not to diss you, but you signed up on November 16th, have very few posts, your name says "Vote4Kerry" which you signed up with 14 days after the election had already occurred, and we cannot confirm the billboard exists.

We need some confirmation. Sorry, but DU has had credibility damaged in the past by newbies posting bullshit stories and crank posts.

Please get us confirmation.

18.  I like it. I really do.
While 17,000 lawyers are working over the recount matter in Ohio, and John Kerry is staying out of sight except to discuss health care for children via an online video, I want this billboard to stay up.

It will look so gorgeous when it comes down.

Remember the toppling of Saddam Hussein's statue in Baghdad?

Think we can get the National Guard to help us take this one down?

Oh, right. They're all in Baghdad..............

Gainesville and from here to Ocala on the interestate. Mostly anti-abortion billboards. But they all have ClearChannel's name on them.

29. It doesn't.
At the bottom, it says "Iosif Vissarionovich Stalin" and over his shoulder it says VKP(B), which stands for "All-Union Communist Party (Bolsheviks)."

But, you know, close enough.

I just called their press person in Jacksonville. You KNOW this billboard exists, guys, you've seen it? Because I can't even write about it. I'm sending their sales person in Jacksonville the photo now, but he says it's not actually there and probably photoshopped.

Edited on Mon Nov-22-04 10:53 AM by Stephanie

The logo is a little over-the-top. Two threads posted by the same newbie. Lots of comments but no verification. I think your call is probably right, unless a witness pipes up that they've actually seen it.

I've asked for witnesses here, but none so far:

55. It is NOT photoshopped!!
I took the picture. Now I feel like I am in a Kafka short story. There are two actual billboards and anyone who commutes down I-4 near the Fairbanks or Princeton interchange cannot miss them. Surely some other DUer has seen them. I don't know if Kerry4President is a Freeper or not. He borrowed the snapshot I took and uploaded. I took it with my own camera and did no retouching at all. I know you are reluctant to believe this can happen in America but if we stick our heads in the sand until this becomes commonplace it will be too late.

56. Here is all info I've got so far on signs (links)
Been busy at work and don't have much time to post right now, but here is all the information I've got on signs (Sorry to cause such a big controversy here). From what I hear, one of the signs is located on I-95 near the I-10 junction. The person where I got the information from says the signs are owned by these people:


Clear Channel Outdoor
5333 Old Winter Garden Road
Orlando , FL 32811
Phone: (407) 298-6410
Fax: (407) 297-8176

The original place where the thread got started is here (where I was able to get my information):

http://forum.therandirhodesshow.com/index.php?s=dc433bf...

Also,here is a group that is putting up Bush signs (link):
http://www.frwsb.org/GOP-Billboard.htm

Hopefully you guys can investigate this further. I am definitely not willingly trying to post false information. The above are my sources and I have heard several people verify that signs exist. Please check it out for sure! Thanks everybody (Got to go back to work but will be back on later in day for updates)!

61. I'll delurk for this controversy
Edited on Mon Nov-22-04 12:26 PM by KyndCulture
I got emailed the pic with a link to the DU post saturday. I posted the link on Randi's Board. I posted the clear channel information today. I called Clear Channel and my sister in Jacksonville. My sister says there is a billboard with a picture of Bush in Jacksonville, but she didn't see what it said. I'm guessing it may be this one. She said they put it up saturday, but she's an old fart and doesn't have or know how to use a digital camera....

I also called clear channel and they deny the billboards exist. I am a web designer and the pic I was emailed does have a signature from a Nikon digital camera..but there is little else I can see. The person who emailed it to me, got it from DU. I have family in Florida so I thought I'd try and figure out if it was real. No luck yet.

I can't prove or disprove the existence of the billboard. Some folks from Randi's board are in Orlando and they are going billboard hunting this afternoon...

Sorry folks... I don't know what else to say!?!?

Without vouching for the billboard's Stalinesue authenticity, I did comment that certainly the picture was from some plastic surgeon's clinic because Bush doesn't look that healthy.

I did see a thread Saturday, ... I'll see if I can find it.... these are the 2 links I was emailed. I'm not a freeper and def not trying to cause any problems. I too would like to know if it's photoshopped.

62. The perspective in this phony picture is screwed up, here's the proof
Edited on Mon Nov-22-04 12:27 PM by Walt Starr
Redline is 100% perpindicular to the rest of the photo, as is the edge of the Bush photo, but look at the post beneath it compared to the rest of the redline.

This is a proven photoshop!

71. If I hadn't taken the picture myself
I would be convinced by your analysis. Unfortuntely it is not a fake. Here is another view of the same billboard.

The source of the picture. Hey Dav? Where exactly is this, the folks on my other board that live in Orlando want to go see this... (I hope they take eggs!)

59. I'll be in Orlando this weekend
so I'll be on the lookout for this. I haven't heard anything about this billboard from a few friends I have in the Orlando area. Seems pretty suspicious to me.

66. Wonder how long it will take for someone to deface it?
If I lived a little closer - I'd be very tempted....

74. as an expert
the perpendicular aspect of one portion is not important since there will be an area that must be perpendicular. At first the saturation of the blue surrounding the text (without any reflective qualities)seemed suspect but with the addition of another angle shot -I will have to study the 2nd shot before rendering an opinion.

As billboards go - this is one of the most expensive versions.

I accept the validity of the photos.

here is what an altered version looks like
