New Moko Article

I've been doing a bit of fun writing for a gaming website recently. Figured I may as well use my blog to plug it.

Sympathy for the Devil?: Roman Polanski

It's an odd one, and really, the law has the memory of an elephant with a filing system.

"Samantha Geimer, 45, was a starry-eyed innocent when Polanski asked her mother if he could photograph her for a fashion magazine at the Hollywood Hills home of Jack Nicholson in March 1977.

After plying the youngster with champagne and drugs and taking nude pictures of her in a hot tub, Polanski had sex with the teen despite her resistance and requests to be taken home."


"Polanski, famed for films such as Rosemary's Baby and Chinatown, fled the US in 1978 before being sentenced after his guilty plea to a charge of unlawful sexual intercourse with 13-year-old Samantha Geimer. He faced up to life in prison".

At this point I'm thinking it's the justice ghost of xmas past come back and claimed him. But here's the odd bit.

Outrage after Roman Polanski arrested on child sex charges

GOVERNMENT ministers, movie directors, writers and intellectuals have expressed shock and outrage after the detention of Oscar winning director Roman Polanski in Switzerland on three-decade-old child sex charges.

France and Poland are to ask the United States to drop the charges and consider a presidential pardon over the case, Poland's PAP news agency said overnight, though Polanski has already acknowledged he had sex with the 13-year-old girl in Los Angeles in 1977.

Someone tell me why there's outrage?. He was convicted and did the bolt before sentencing. Fairly black and white, to me.

I have anger issues, but I'm not afraid to use 'em

In person, I'm the most laid back and understanding person you could know. I don't anger easy, I'm not frustrated easy, I'm cool in a crisis, stress gets to me long term without having ways to deal with it, but short term I'm quite good with it. I'm non-judgemental.

Why is then that online I can have the patience with fuck wits that is equal to the fuse on a hand grenade?. I'm about as subtle and as diplomatic as a hand grenade as well when the fuse is lit.

It's odd and kinda contradictory to my real life personality. I don't believe I HAVE to be right. Me and Doc have come to understandings before.

Someone psychoanalyse me.

i found many cheap jordan shoes online for sale,is it fake?

Hello all. Transplanted Moko advice giving from another site.

Warning: Contains content that some might consider insensitive. It's meant to be ironic....maybe.

"japePrearplag" - (who you'd reasonably assume to be a bot) - 'asked':

"i found many cheap jordan shoes online for sale,is it fake?"

My reply:

Sunday morning, and here I was contemplating the universe and its many wonders. The meaning of life, and what's the point - not in a negative way. Looking for existential meaning, if you will. But here I am struck by the magnitude of your Sunday morning conundrum - are Jordan shoe sales online fake...?.

So you found "many". Statistics would have you believe that the chances of fraud online is fairly prevalent. Cheap Jordan will quite possibly be among the target set where these pesky fraudsters would target. To be honest, I didn't know they still made them...isn't Jordan running a brothel in Guatemala?.

That point leads me to the next question. Do these shoes come from Guatemala?. If they DO, then it's reasonably fair to assume that Jordan, in between running the Brothel and lapping up the luxuries that that sort lifestyle may produce, he quite possibly decided over a mango and pineapple smoothie - possibly Sunday morning TOO - that shoes netted him a tidy little income once so why not AGAIN???

Being in Guatemala, you'd assume - not that I know ANYTHING about Guatemala's GDP - in order to access the world market at competitive rates and to make money from the venture without having to 'dip' - so to speak - into his Brothel account to make up the difference in expenditure he'd need to venture online for Jordan Shoe SALES!!!.

So long story short, if the shoe sale accounts are in Guatemala you should be fine. Buy lots, and say hi for me. IF they are anywhere else, you'd probably be funding terrorism by buying them - even made in USA ones.

Good luck!


GASP...as an after-thought, it could be Cheap JORDAN shoes, not Cheap Jordan SHOES...as in the KINGDOM of JORDAN.

Here's some info as found on Jordan - the country - in the CIA World Fact Book - DEFINITE one for the favourites menu.

"approximately two million Iraqis have fled the conflict in Iraq, with the majority taking refuge in Syria and Jordan; 2004 Agreement settles border dispute with Syria pending demarcation"


refugees (country of origin): 1,835,704 (Palestinian Refugees (UNRWA)); 500,000 (Iraq)
IDPs: 160,000 (1967 Arab-Israeli War) (2007)

IDP's, I think, are displaced persons. Beats the fuck out of me what the difference is between 'refugees' and 'displaced persons' are. I'll write to the CIA on your behalf and ask. Shalnt be long...in the mean time, continue reading...

current situation: Jordan is a destination and transit country for women and men from South and Southeast Asia trafficked for the purpose of forced labor; Jordan is also a destination for women from Eastern Europe and Morocco for prostitution; women from Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, Indonesia, and the Philippines migrate willingly to work as domestic servants, but some are subjected to conditions of forced labor, including unlawful withholding of passports, restrictions on movement, non-payment of wages, threats, and physical or sexual abuse

tier rating: Tier 2 Watch List - Jordan is on the Tier 2 Watch List for its failure to provide evidence of increasing efforts to combat trafficking in persons in 2007, particularly in the area of law enforcement against trafficking for forced labor; the government made minimal efforts to investigate or prosecute numerous allegations related to exploitation of foreign domestic workers; Jordan failed for a second year to criminally prosecute and punish those who committed acts of forced labor; Jordan also continues to lack victim protection services; Jordan has not ratified the 2000 UN TIP Protocol (2008)

Prostitutes from Morocco eh?....bet they make a nice Moroccan Lamb. I had a nice Moroccon Lamb at a little restaurant in a little town called Biloela in rural Queensland...rather delish...anywho...

So by buying Cheap JORDANIAN Shoes you're actually helping stop slave labour and sexual servitude by pooling manpower into lacing, boxing and shipping the shoes, and by counting the money you send. You are also giving the 'displaced persons' - which the Yanks and Au Gov will tell you are all terrorists by DEFAULT - something else to do while they figure out how to make bombs out of mangoes!.

It's a win win. Good luck!
