Could someone post this picture to this Daily Page tribute page. I could not figure out how to make it work.

Alright, must we go so far with this? While I admire his passion and some of the work he's done, I also think he's done a lot to damage the image and credibility of people trying to affect change through more conventional routes. His tireless self-promotion can be irritating.

I appreciate his passion.
I am turned off by his need to grab the spotlight.
I don't think he's lying that he has serious health problems.

I'm not sure what to think about this latest development. I guess it wouldn't surprise me if his life were to end tomorrow or 5 years from now. I guess this is Meade's angle, too, but be it tomorrow or 5 years, Meade's attitude is simply disgusting. I can't imagine saying such things from behind an anonymous screen name, even.

They said the same thing about MLK and Malcolm.

Remember, "diversity of tactics."

Yeah, ok, to each his own. Don't want this to be come a textbook example of "lefties gather, agitator stirs pot, lefties commence tearing each other apart while agitator leaves through side door, whistling..."

Sheesh, I said I admired the guy (sorta)!

Short short memories here. Meade isn't the first to mock Jeremy's health woes:

Classic Uncle_Leaver

But ... but ... he's died several times!

Fuuuuuuuuuuuuuck off, asshole! You haven't died until I'm fishing with worms that have fed off your corpse, you sob story spinning sonofabitch.



Followed up by:


wack wack wrote:"He has died several times in his life, surviving heart attacks and cancer and is blind in one eye. "

Reminds me of an old joke... forget "Segway," his nickname should be "Lucky."

Now what possible motive could Jeremy have to fake die? Well, dying would certainly free him up from having to face the criminal complaints against him, wouldn't it?

And while you are all posting your tributes to the equivalence of MLK and Malcolm, try to remember the man - the whole man - and not just the myth:

Yes Meade he is not perfect. Very few men are.

Meade, it is like how your hero Hitler being a vegetarian. That must have really disappointed you when you found out that he was less than perfect and had his faults, no matter (in your view) how minor.

Segway Jermey Ryan is starting to resemble Lincoln. How appropriate.

The level of cluelessness you continue to display is truly staggering.

If being a class act is something you admire, why don't you aspire towards being one yourself?

Criminal complaints? Do tell, Meade. According to ccap, he's got two pending forfeiture actions against him.

I'm sure you can find someone to explain to you you the difference between a criminal charge and an ordinance violation.
