I can tell that Freerepublic has started spiraling into hysteria similar to what I sensed around the 2008 election time.... I'll check back in in 2013 to see if things simmered down.
"Censorship reflects a society's lack of confidence in itself. It is the hallmark of an authoritarian regime..." --Justice Potter Stewart, dissenting Ginzberg v. United States, 383 U.S. 463 (1966)
Ha! Wasn’t old Esh famous for: “If Jesus were alive today he’d be packin’ heat?”
Or do I have my nutcases mixed up from way back when?
ha...and yes there is a Mr Rogers statue in Pitt. No, I mean a pres. candidate
(not Santorum; wears sweaters but left race)
You're going to pay to enjoy the goods and services of any fine eatery, but get out of hand and the owner has every right to throw you out of his establishment.
No different here.
As I always say, there’s something about this color that can go from picking out an eggplant at the local supermarket, to parties with Secret Service men in Colombia, without missing a beat. :-)
I can see why you don't post much. Probably took you half an hour to write that.
So, how do they call you guys out of 'sleep' mode anyway? Email? Phone call? Mental buzz ray?
as Will Robinson, Lost in Space...I’m old too :)
Or by allowing that other Socialist, Romney, to be elected...
With that poor level of activity, I doubt that poster will even notice they've been zotted for months to come .. LOL
Longevity doesn't count for squat if a member has lost all connection to the mores, values, and ethics of the group. When they begin to take on the color of an enemy, it's time to go.
Go to the News/Activism page and look up top. Click where it says ‘account’, and your stats are there. Here’s mine:
“You’ve posted a total of 178 threads and 25,701 replies.”
I’m coming up on my fifth anniversary here, so I guess that’s respectable.
Got two of them ~ but no plugs. How do you make ‘em work.
Oh my gawd!
Speak and ye shall receive...... or something like that.
Okay, never tried OPI, but now I may have to...
That's true, and I've done it myself. I remember voting for McCain in 2008, but really I was voting for Sarah. However, there's a limit, a line you just can't make yourself cross. For me, Romney is that line. I watched the 2002 video of that smarmy liar saying he would make it easy for minor girls to get a judge's permission for an abortion---behind their parents' backs. And then five years later he was saying he had "always" been pro-life.
I just don't think I could wash myself clean enough after voting for him.
You've posted a total of 101 threads and 14,385 replies.
This is what I don't understand. I lurked here for three years, and I'm very well aware of Jim's longstanding opinion of Romney. It was made clear long ago. So what did these folks expect? That he would do a 180 and suddenly begin to support Romney, putting the lie to everything he's said in the past? Really??
"You're also right about TV News and radio. FReepers would be better served reading FR. I do. I have stopped watching Fox and all but stopped listening to Rush. (I occasionally hear his show from the kitchen where DrO listens). I am much happier and much better informed. "
Same here, Onyx. I haven't listened to Rush in a couple of weeks, and if Romney becomes the nominee, I won't be listening to much talk radio at all until the election is over. It isn't that I don't love Rush and Mark Levin. But they will have to get behind Romney and push him, for reasons I understand, and it really won't be pleasant to hear.
“the great enemy.”
Obama may be the greatest enemy that we have faced. The enemy from within is what Nikita Krushchev said would bury us.
Oh come on now. Hysteria can be very entertaining.
