Obama the Angry
The Orange County Register blog Orange Punch ^ | 10-25-2011 | Mark Landsbaum

Posted on 01/25/2012 4:03:38 PM PST by landsbaum

During the State of the Union speech last night we had the TV turned up very loud so I could hear the speech while following along in the released transcript on my computer screen and taking notes at the keyboard while simultaneously roughing a draft of our editorial today.

Let him make this perfectly clear...

During the 65 minutes he spoke, I developed something of a headache.

It seemed to me the president virtually shouted his entire speech. . .

Which is why I never listen to O on TV or over the radio.

Listening to Baraq is cruel and unusual punishment.
Sheriff Joe probably uses Baraq’s speeches on his toughest cases.

You mean MSNBC (or elsewhere) did not also make this observation?

Everytime a blog pimp pimps his blog, the evil dwarves get closer to escaping their subterraneon prison. Please prevent blog pimping and stop the evil dwarves from escaping!

You know, I used to think that was bull.

I owned a midget, a nice one too. Kept him in a shed.

Then the blogpimping started. He sensed it. Smelled it.

I don't really know on what level he knew about it. But
it was obvious that he did. He knew and he grew strong.

Ultimately he broke out of his shed and strode forth into the
world to make of it what he might, which likely was Mexican Midget Porn.

Just sayin'...

Hey metmom! Remember what I was saying about that second account pimping the same blog?

I might have read this if I didn’t have to click on some MySpace page.

Shame.

Unless it is so embarrassingly bad that the author was ashamed to post it in full.

Half-blind midgets living in sheds are higher up on the food chain than blogpimps.

True story.

This one escaped during the Era of Moby and caused havoc through the (short-lived) reign of Suvroc.

He was only recently returned to captivity.

It isn't a MySpace page. It is from the Orange County Register, a newspaper in Orange County, California.

I am not going to take any chances if the author is afraid to post his work here then there is no telling what kind of pop-up crap and viruses might be lurking on the site.

Most efforts to redirect people from the site they choose to be on to another usually have a basis in scummyness.

It isn't Free Republic either. I'm not clicking on it.

If the "author" has something to say, why doesn't he post it here?

We don't support this site to provide free advertising for blogpimps.

Waitaminnut.

OC Register is the Orange Country Register.

The rational alternative to the communist rag LA Times. It’s the only paper worth reading in all of Southern California.

OC Register is blog pimping?

“Orange County Register”. Sorry.

There goes my newsroom copy editor gig. :D

I’m inclined to vouch for this source.

Except that whoever uses the two FR screenenames doesn’t EVER respond to posts, except to ask people to hit his site because he gets money for it and he needs to earn a living.

The one handle has a signup date of 2001 and didn’t post a thing for TEN years.

Check out the posting histories. All they are are posting threads. NO comments but to ask for money. He’s just using FR for free revenue.

Like humblegunner said on another thread, I don’t donate to FR to provide free advertizing for the guy.

I agree you shouldn’t click on any link if you don’t wish to. There are plenty of other posts here to read and comment on.

I just wanted to point out that the Orange County Register is a real newspaper. It is listed on Free Republic’s front page in the column “Media Links”. I am from Southern California, so I am familiar with the paper. It is also on the Free Republic’s list of excerpt and link only sites.

http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/1111944/posts

I posted an article once from the Orange County Register. The Free Republic software wouldn’t let me post the whole article. It was automatically excerpted.

Hmm.

Seems lame. The Orange County Register is better than the Los Angeles Times. Really.

They’re like WSJ vs NYT.

Seems pretty lame for them to have someone trying to eek some sort of money making scam at their site.

Perhaps I won’t vouch for the poster, and it isn’t the actual paper news website, it does indicate a blog.

It’s a good newspaper, anyway.

Weird.

The author can post his own work in its entirety.

This is blog pimping pure and simple.

He should be charge a fee for wasting peoples time posting links to a blog.

No hits from me and a lot of other FReepers who are sick of this crap.

I was a paper boy for the Santa Ana Register [today’s OC Register] during the Carter Administration.

My first District Manager was named Barry. Barry was an idiot. Always messing up. The other paper boys would refer to a screwup as ‘Pulling a Barry’. Eventually Barry was fired.

Barry was replaced by my second District Manager, Michelle. Michelle was a platinum blonde who drove a cherry red Corvette. If you needed a bag of rubber bands, Michelle would come speeding up, cross over to the opposite side of the street facing oncoming traffic, stop next to the curb where the paper boys were folding their papers,crack open the Corvette door three inches, drop the bag of rubber bands in the gutter, and then speed away.

Yep...Barry and Michelle.

I’ll refer to this historical snipet in a much longer post this coming October.

Stay Tuned.

Tagline! ROFL!
Since the dead vote for the Demwits, I suppose one of them could run for office too.
Alinsky would be well suited for the VP slot, no worse than what we have now.

Since the dead vote for the Demwits . . .

Have you heard the story that there is now proof that both OBL and Gadaffi are truly dead - they are registered to vote in Chicago.

FReepers, you can decide whether you like him or not, but there's no doubt the Orange County Register is a major suburban Los Angeles newspaper and that Landsbaum is a legitimate journalist. The Orange County Register is the largest newspaper in the Freedom Communications chain, a chain for which I once worked. It's probably the largest conservative daily newspaper in the country after the Wall Street Journal and Washington Times.

I've attached a copy of Landsbaum's bio with a link.

I think there's a good chance that Landsbaum simply doesn't know Free Republic policy and being polite might have worked. For Landsbaum's benefit, here's a link to an item, “The Pimp and The Poster (Mod Lecture Series)” that may be helpful:

http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/2722423/posts?page=1

Mr. Landsbaum — It's not stated very prominently in any FAQ section, but the Free Republic policy in that link, posted by Admin Moderator, and also included in several other threads, is a preference for articles to be posted in full rather than excerpted unless copyright rules require them to be excerpted.

If company policy permits at Freedom Communications, it would be a good idea for you to post the full text of your articles.

I am not seeking to pick a fight with the “blogpimp posse” who have been attacking you, or to defend them, simply to explain that posting the full text of your articles is a way for you to handle their objections.
