"Have you lost your mind?"

Well, no, he didn't lose it. He's letting me borrow it for a while. It's being used as a demo model in a psych class.

I'm sure if you're nice you can borrow it....oh wait, Dr. Zoo needs it. Never mind.

"Sean brings his personal life to his show everyday. Can you tell me the name of his daughter?"

Yeah, good question.....and does he prefer the toilet paper over the top or from the bottom?

"I understand this is quite an emotional issue,"

I'll say. I've had to use twice as many Depends today!!!

Rush and Drudge used to come here too come to think of it. They don't anymore....at least not openly. Perhaps there is some truth in what Sean says? hmmmmmm

It's a bit of a love/hate relationship between Hannity and Free Republic. I know there is a lot more support for him than contempt because his views resonate so loudly here.

BTW, my opinion is that I like Sean's radio show but Hannity and Colmes has become a bore.

This student needs support, no doubt.

And the fact that some here are willing to ignore the student because they're peeved at Hannity, the messenger, just proves that Hannity is right.

There ARE some fringe nuts here, who would rather be angry then be fighting for the cause. They're as useless to conservatism as the GOP Reps in the House were before Newt rounded them up, and said we need to start fighting.

Why did Hannity bring it up NOW?

I don't know. Maybe because NOW he has received a request for help from the student.

Everyone remembers the George Bush 1 quote that sunk his attempt at a 2nd term -- RML. NNT --- I didn't vote for him as a result and am proud of it to this day. It was a deliberate lie, and a violation of basic principle.

But there was another Bush1 moment that I remember that was eye-opening to me, and I respect Bush1 for saying it...It was when some of the pundits were clamoring for the President to dump Dan Quayle from the '92 ticket. Bush said, In my family, loyalty is counted as an important virtue.

Quayle was in the family, and so is Hannity.

That doesn't mean we have to accept everything they say and do, but it does mean that we don't cut our own throats, or their's for some small disagreement.

Thanks for explaining. I too like his radio show, most of the time and like you I've found the Fox show boring. I'm picky about when I watch it depending on guests. I've found that too often my blood pressure goes up from detesting Colmes stupid questions and comments so much.

Colmes claims to be Christian, other times says he's Jewish, yet his beliefs are closer to communism than anything. Mostly he's just abrasively stupid. (stupid = very slow of apprehension or understanding, reason, or wit; senseless)

"That doesn't mean we have to accept everything they say and do, but it does mean that we don't cut our own throats, or their's for some small disagreement."

A very important point that seems to be lost on too many.
"Together we stand, divided we fall."

I find it ironic that so many "Conservatives" like to engage in some sort of rightous indignation that they otherwise abhor in Liberals? LOL

Who hasn't stuck their foot right in their mouth at one time or another? He appologized, so let's get back to our mutual goal of spreading truth and conservatism. Let's close ranks and get back to whipping dim-o-cratic ass using nothing more than the truth. Senator Reid knows what I mean. His voting record makes for some easy targets moving forward on issues important to the President and the Republican Party.

I know I'm one of the fringe kooks because I think we should strengthen our boarders and stop this unabated flow of illegal immigrants.

I know I'm one of the fringe kooks because I think Bush's 150 federal programs isn't even a good start. We should shut down the NEA and the federal Dept. of Edumacation if we want to get a good start.

I know I'm one of the fringe kooks because I think we should drastically cut the size and scope of federal government.

I know I'm one of the fringe kooks because I supported Herman Cain for the U.S. Senate and thought putting another do-nothing Republican on the ballot "just because he would win" wasn't a good idea.

But I especially know I'm one of the fringe kooks because I think federal spending should be limited to nothing more than national defense and lighthouses. :-)

eyespy: How do you know you're one of the fringe kooks?

any mention of Freerepublic.com(especially on tv) would benefit our forum greatly

Especially if you think seeing trolls zotted benefits our forum greatly. I've found that press for FR generally leads to a spike in trolls (though not so much when the mention comes from Rush or Hannity)

Certainly things like memogate rise FR above other similar forums in terms of legitimacy, and I think the more moderate conservatives who seek us out because of things like that eventually become more rabid in their conservatism (and that's a good thing). So yes, I suppose I agree with you, and Hannity certainly knows where to find the more moderate conservatives ...

Well, since I agree with you on all the points you listed, I guess that would make me a fringe kook too. I don't agree with everything that Hannity says, nor with Bush on everything, etc. and probably not with on other things.

I don't mean to belabor the point, however since I wasn't around at that time Hannity came here, I still don't understand why you believe you specifically would fall in the group he referred to. And at this point it really doesn't matter. All this began as conversation and I don't want it to escalate to more than that.

As I said in prior post, I really enjoy the exchanges and I read more than I post. I learn a lot and value this site for the info and educated insights of others (not that all fall in that category) and I sure don't want to be a pain in the posterior or make enemies. Please forgive my questioning, especially since I don't view your points as fringe but a good conservative. I assumed that what Hannity referred to were people who are way over the line and annoyingly so. I'm sure some less conservative would view us that way. Anyway, thanks for your explanation

If only Sean Hannity were a FReeper, he would know. However, he has held a grudge against folks here for years because of the way some of his friends were treated six years ago. I doubt that Sean cares much about how some of his friends have treated regular old Americans like the ones who call his show. Hope Sean doesn't give any of his loyal supporters the boot for associating with the FRinge. I know at least one of his friends has done so.

As for this college student's problem, the definitive work on the subject is Forrest McDonald's We the People: the Economic Origins of the Constitution.

I was amazed by Sean Hannity's second day response to the Free Republic trashing he did the day before. He is obviously trying to promote his own site by trashing what he sees as competition. He has not learned that the tactics of Tom Daschle and company do not work. What he did was very stupid.

>>But, but...just yesterday, didn't Hannity say FR was a bunch of fringe kooks now?

He did indeed. I love both FR and Hannity, but Sean, a good piece of advice: don't condemn all of FR because of a few posters. It is a great resource which, like you and your TV/radio shows, can work wonders. If you keep bashing FR, Sean, I may consider listening to you less
or not at all.

"You can fire me whenever you want" by not listening,
you've said many a time. Be aware that bashing FR might
lead to some listener defections! Work with us--you
won't be sorry. "Three hours a day" (and one on TV)
"that's all we ask". Hannity AND FR can work together
to beat back the libs!

I hate to ruin your day, but there are indeed quite a number of fringe kooks around here.

I'm not a fan of Hannity's, but I understand his point. He's a very public figure whom the MSM would love to tear down because he's a conservative. JimRob does the best he can to ferret out the kooks, but he can't get them all. Plus, you know that if the MSM has a choice between interpreting something reasonably, and interpreting it in a way that made FR look badly, they're going to choose the latter.

For a public figure like Hannity, he has to be concerned about attempts to smear his reputation. If he posted here, or admitted he was a member or something, he'd be (unfairly) tagged as associating himself with the kooks. So I can see why he made the statement he did. Probably read some kooky stuff, and thought that he couldn't afford to be associated with it.

I certainly hope we at the Institute don't get in trouble for our procedures.

Fortunately, the Medical/Psychological/Neuropsychoendocrinology fields haven't caught up with us yet. They aren't certified to do Psychic Lyposuction, Brain Marrow Transplants, etc yet.

We are waiting to hear for them so they can treat their patients outside of time...

One thing I have to give Sean credit for: his ability to speak to the college crowd and win them over to conservativism is unmatched by anyone else on the conservative side.

For that, I feel that I and others should back off from comments about his shallowness (which I have made, no doubt). He's playing to a different crowd and it's an important crowd to win over. His idea of creating an organization that exposes bully liberalism in faculty of universities and colleges is an important one, and he's the one to further that idea.

So I take it back. You're a great American, Sean. Go for it and good luck.

I hear you. I've been too harsh on him also. I'm not crazy about all the "Great American" accolades. I'll just wait for the history books to be written. But Sean has had a very good effect on the younger people as you say. Good.

On another note, I was watching him for a few minutes down at Daytona tonight on his show. He was in more casual clothing and his hair was more casual. As a 58 year old married guy (30 years)........ I can say those girls are right, Sean is soooooo cute. ;-)

He looks a lot better when he's in the casual dress.

Oh my god. 10 million people heard Sean slap our faces. Anti-conservative sites everywhere are considering us of little value. The sky is falling.

You sound hysterical. Come in from the outer edge. Relax.
