You wouldn't mind if we don't believe everything you say, would you?
(N.B. A copy of this is being sent to Jim Rob because he deserves to know what is being done to his "baby," in his name.)
Not personally, but professionally, yes I do mind.
My statement is entirely correct. If you are foolish to care to bet otherwise, we can both deposit $100,000 in escrow with a good Conservative lawyer. If I'm wrong, you get $200K. If I'm right, I get $150K, and Jim Rob gets $50K
Nothing personal, but it has been my personal observation that FR is in intellectual and popular decline because most Admin Moderators are a bunch of undereducated, anonymous, power hungry snots who possess little if any journalistic or legal skills or life experience.... and even less common sense.... and continue to prove it every day by their actions
It is the general feeling among many former FReepers who I stay in touch with that the Admin Moderators here are exceptionally unqualified to make important decisions involving most anything. We have seen you kill important stories, "modify" others to make them meaningless and often incorrect, and generally do all you can to support your false sense of ego-centric righteous authority.
Ask yourself one simple question, rather than so-called "moderating," why aren't you working to develop some real stories that might interest people or make actually make a contribution to Conservatism and/or America... and pardon me for stating the obvious that issues that benefit Conservatism automatically benefit America.
We are facing a major crisis to the degree that America has never previously experienced. You, and by extension FR, can be part of marshaling public influence to send Obama home, of you can continue to exercise your untrained authority over a diminishing field of followers.
I do not post this out of hate or anger. I'm simply trying to give you a dose of something called "reality." Until a few years ago, FR was a site leading Conservatives to victory, followed closely by journalists and feared by liberals. Please do not continue to expedite it's descent into meaninglessness.
Let there not be a joke along the lines of:
Did you hear about the guy who became the new King of Portugal?
Yeah, it's sort of like being a Admin Moderator at FR. You don't really have to be qualified to do anything, and although you think you have power, behind your back, no one cares because every who matters has left.
P.S. Nothing personal in any of the above, but as you can see, I do not tolerate fools very well.... and having been on the phone with people in DC most of the day,... I have already had my daily fill!
I’m not changing a thing.
I know who currently holds the power in DC, too. Perhaps you could have chosen a close to your post more likely to be impressive to conservatives... ;-)
