Good Bye FR
me | 7/2/2012 | me

Posted on 07/02/2012 9:52:57 PM PDT by gura

After being on FR for more than ten years I've finally had enough of the brown shirted fascism censoring valid conservative viewpoints. Enjoy your echo chamber of whining syncophants. I'm off to go help Mitt get elected while you bitch and moan about who is or isn't conservative enough.

Reagan did sign the abortion bill in California when he was governor. He later said he regretted it.

A post must have at least 200 words to even get examined for acceptance into the Opus category. This isnt even little league let alone minor league Opus stuff.

There is no airing of grievences, no naming of posters who have wronged you...and not a single curse word disguised with symbols that sit atop the string of numbers on the keyboard.

This is truly just a goodbye note.

Lets make sure Mitt has a Conservative Congress and Senate! See how he gave in to the Liberals in Mass.-—He will find it easier to cave into the tea Party People in congress! Strange things happen—Maybe Mitt will be a great president? It could happen.

Someone will find your computer and post that you died and your real name and when and where and how. (Who expected cocaine poisoning while doing jumps on a ski-doo?)

I figure...I will just die.

And quit posting...

No FReeper will ever notice.

I've already written a nice opus, praising F.R., to be posted posthumously, by my son, who is also a member. How's that for finality? People won't even be able to tell me not to let the door hit me on the way out, cause I'll already be past that berm beyond which no man returns.

I think you used more words critiqueing the opus than were in the opus. I agree; pretty lame, as opi go.

Regan wasnt not pro abortion.

He did sign a very liberal abrotion law as mu Gov , but like Mitt he switched later. Thats the point NO ONE IS Perfect.

The Therapeutic Abortion Act

Which was to abortion what Medicinal Marijuana is to pot:

http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/1957926/posts

On June 14, 1967, Ronald Reagan signed the Therapeutic Abortion Act, after only six months as California governor.

From a total of 518 legal abortions in California in 1967, the number of abortions would soar to an annual average of 100,000 in the remaining years of Reagan’s two terms — more abortions than in any U.S. state prior to the advent of Roe v. Wade.

The problem with opusing is...With very very few exceptions, nobody will notice, or care, that you have stopped posting.

Its rather a wasted effort, I must say.

It's ok, my 1900+ Twitter followers actually care when I stop saying stuff. You can follow me @comradescott

"Sometime when you're feeling important; Sometime when your ego 's in bloom; Sometime when you take it for granted, You're the best qualified in the room: Sometime when you feel that your going, Would leave an unfillable hole, Just follow these simple instructions, And see how they humble your soul. Take a bucket and fill it with water, Put your hand in it up to the wrist, Pull it out and the hole that's remaining, Is a measure of how much you'll be missed. You can splash all you wish when you enter, You may stir up the water galore, But stop, and you'll find that in no time, It looks quite the same as before. The moral of this quaint example, Is to do just the best that you can, Be proud of yourself but remember, There's no indispensable man."

Stop twittering and see how long it is before you are forgotten. We are all dust and unto dust we shall return.

Stick around Gura. At least we all love our country, though we may disagree on how to get it back on track occasionally.

I agree. I see stuff that makes me cringe--probably every time I come on FR, but I also see a lot of things I agree with. FR has truly been a sanity saver for me plus I've learned a lot over the years and I keep very well informed. Often I see things posted here well before most conservatives and definitely way before most of America.

To Gura, I guess I can understand why a person would get fed up and want to leave, but why post about it? You are just going to be ridiculed. Best just to quietly fade away IMO if that's what you desire. Good luck.

I wish you nothing but the best Jim. Protesting in 2000 with my fellow Freepers over Gore vs Bush is what really stoked the political fires within me. I just hate having my opinions deleted by mods when they’re neither profane or hateful, just honest.

A lib would complain about their first amendment rights but as a conservative I’m smart enough to know that doesn’t apply here. :-)

What ever did happen to old Osage Orange? Anyone seen him posting recently? Then someone goes to look at lasts posts and sees it's been a while. Then there's the sad post about the felling of a windrow tree.

Best to have an after-death opus ready for FR.

Please don’t start this Romney crap again. I’ve been smacking down the liars and the deceived who have been passing this garbage for six years. Needless to say I have the proof you are wrong. Along with the fact that I am old enough to remember this and know exactly what really happened.

So look it up yourself. Start with the link at the bottom of this post.

Ronald Reagan passed a law which stated-
No abortion except for the health of the mother.
This is not pro abortion talk at all. Even today that view would be considered pro life.

Mitt Romney stated-
He would protect a woman’s right to murder her child.

He also said, Govt. should not interfere with a woman’s right to murder her child.

Mitt Romney absolutely pro abortion, pro-choice, pro death to the unborn.

What Reagan said and what Romney said are no where near equivalent.

But Romney did have an epiphany about abortion when he decide to run for office.

Lying Mitt and his minions trying to make him look better in comparison by trashing Reagan who is no longer here to defend himself. One of the very long list of reasons why I will never vote for that lying socialist son of an Alinsky-ite.

Oh, and here is your proof:

http://archive.redstate.com/stories/elections/2008/adamantly_pro_choice_ronald_reagan_and_abortion_in_1967

Give it some time. It’s an old article. I have a fast connection and it still took a while for me to load.

What he signed was an abortion bill that would be considered pro life today. It said no abortions except for the health of the mother. He did not know the dems would construe health of the mother to mean any little thing. But even today that bill would greatly limit the number of abortions.

He regretted it because it was used by the dems, libs and socialists to open the flood gates and way more abortions occurred than he ever imagined. He regretted that greatly. But that does not make that bill pro-abortion. It is less pro life than say, no abortions at all under any circumstance or no abortions except for rape and incest or no abortions except for the life of the mother.

But that does not make it pro abortion or pro choice like Romney’s a woman’s “right” to choose to abort her baby should be protected and govt. should not interfere with a woman’s “right” to abort her child. That is pro abort and pro choice. Nor did Reagan’s bill provide $50.00 or free abortions for anyone. That was all Romney’s doing.

Oh, I've escaped the dark angel many times in my days.....

I've felled a widow maker tree, and lived to tell about it. Among many other things.............HA!! Too many to list here...!!!

Of course I matter...But to those here...nope.

My family and personal friends..matter, and care about me.

Sad to say....I've only met one other FReeper..and that was years ago.

And sadly I don't know what has become of her.
