If you want Obama then continue your foolish ranting.
You did not get what you wanted, though all the selections were poor,so stop whining. We need to unelect Obama. If you have not figured that out by now, you are clueless.

Most people who invite others to their home do not then ask their guest to pay their mortgage.

And by the way, the key word in your comment is "ask."

No one is forcing anyone to donate a penny to "pay the mortgage." Even if they're eating the groceries and running up the water and electric bills.

In twelve years here I have yet to see Jim point a gun at a single poster's head.

You fool. We won’t be here in 2013. Obama will outlaw us by bureaucratic decree.

Well, yes, not to mention martial (sorry, I mean "marshal") law, asteroid strikes, black helicopters, chemtrails, Nazi UFOs, alien pod people and Dennis Kucinich (but there I repeat myself). Hysteria, on FR?

Sigh! I miss Michael Rivero...

Re #54:

Wow! What website have you been on? How can I “rant” on FR? If I rant the way I want I’ll get booted, which, while not the loss it once would have been to me, is still not something I want. Besides, my “rant” was two sentences long.

rant/rant/
Verb:
Speak or shout at length in a wild, impassioned way.
Noun:
A spell of ranting; a tirade.

its discourgaging isn't it....I hope the sheeple can pull themselves together to get rid of bamey, but heck, then these people can really complain for the following 4 yrs, when guns are taken away, national id cards implemented,silencing of conservative talk radio, and a forced draft, as well as continued subserviance to muslims, homosexuals, and illegals....

hey, maybe its their investment in righteous indigantion which can be so satisfying in a tyranny.

Freerepublic has started spiraling into hysteria similar to what I sensed around the 2008 election time

Yes, because those fears have turned out to be unrealized and unfounded.

Why do you feel the need to announce this?? Plenty of us have taken a break from FR and not felt the need to do the “look at me! look at me! look at me!”. You disagree with the way things are done. I’m sure we all have at some time or other.

Man up. Take a break. But whatever else you do, don’t be an attention wh@re.

I've been on FR since the before the blue dress days, before Huntgen Forest, before tsunami and before Quidam and the grey coats, under a different name though....

it is disturbing that with this much power, this much organization, that we can't be more effective in booting bamey but boy we'll be effective in electing him once more...

not me.....these obamists can claim that all on their own, and after the election, they can reap their ignorance...

“We need to unelect Obama. If you have not figured that out by now, you are clueless.”

An understatement if I’ve ever heard one but not satisfactory to some who’ve never read Machiavelli. The enemy of my enemy is my friend. How close a friend is dependent on how much they treat my enemy as an enemy. A friend that doesn’t believe in the Constitution is also my enemy.

Censorship deals with what the government can or cannot do to stifle you..........A privately owned company, where you are a guest, can do what it likes.

"Guest"... needs to be stressed...

Before I lost my husband we ran several businesses with other family members. We all had our greiviances and none to quite about them....but nobody ever Questioned who was the man at the top, my husbands Father. And the buck always stopped with him.

FR reminds me of those 'family" disputes......we fight and bicker ,with passion, like an old Italian family.....but we know and respect the decisions of the Top Man...if or not one agrees, well he IS the Top Dog who started it all... And we've all gained from being here.

I've got mine ready, just in case:

There once was a freeper named celtic cross

Who was witty smart hansome and "boss"

Til one day he did opus, a terrible loss,

And was casually given the toss.

I'm working on figuring out which fancy font I will use.

I understand your sentiments. Emotions are running high at the moment. That’s not a bad thing. We scream at one another online in this millenium where 200 years ago they railed in the pubs and in the public square.

All this is in the run-up to the fall elections following a contentious primary season. I say again, emotions are running high.

If I see people being banned for simply stating their opinions, even in an intemperate manner with high emotion, then it will be time to consider leaving this forum. Let that not be so.

Please have the common courtesy to us paragraphs. If makes the reading more endurable. And while ranting some ALL caps is unavoidable it deludes the specialness of your main points if the whole thing is CAPS. Remember that spelling and grammar errors will be pointed out with derision while flaming.
