Long time Lurker, finally signed up to FReepVille.
Ri4DC

Posted on 08/18/2010 3:00:53 AM PDT by ri4dc

I have long enjoyed Free Republic as a news source, and greatly enjoy the depth of the commentary. I woke up from my political coma, like many Americans, during the 2007 Presidential campaign. I have since been silently witnessing the pain and suffering of our beloved country and liberties. I sincerely want the tide of politics to shift, but fear it too late. Time will show. I hope I can contribute to the FReep discussions intelligently.

Nah just had to take a 6 am pill and can’t get back to sleep. People type strange stuff here during the night.

Not (necessarily) referring to the thread poster.

Seeing a new person post reminds me that we haven’t had a good opus thread lately.

That’s a thing that tells wind direction, or a blade, as in a turbine. Vanities are “vain.”

My FReeping starts at 2am.....Alaska time, course that means its 6am on the east coast and most people are already up.

So I have seen usually replies from back east first and then more westward, opposite when I come home and its after bedtime on the ast coast but west coast is still alive and kicking.

Sure we have.

Some eminently forgettable guy had a thread pulled and said he was leaving.

But he wouldn’t go away.

Two or three days ago.

Maybe we can get a “FReepville” started on Facebook. “Shibumi just used 50 pounds of blogger excerpts to fertilize his garden. Larry just saw a host around the sun. Lazamataz just hit two waitresses and a bank teller.”

Except that today I didn’t need excerpts.

I had about a hundred and fifty pounds (just guessing, mind you) of freshly minced blogger. The real thing.

I sincerely want the tide of politics to shift, but fear it too late.

A reminder from the FR homepage: "Free Republic is the premier online gathering place for independent, grass-roots conservatism on the web. We're working to roll back decades of governmental largesse, to root out political fraud and corruption, and to champion causes which further conservatism in America."

This isn't a website for surrendering. Welcome to FR.

"Well if you lurked then signed up anyway I guess you know what you’re let yourself in for."

Which brings up an interesting question.

Would not a long-time lurker know the general disdain of the residents of "FReepVille" for vanities? Would he not also be more saavy than to coin such a cutesy term for this esteemed community?

(Things that make you go "Hmmmmmmm.")

I give all noobs a chance until they start spouting liberal nonsense.

Then I go verbal-medieval on their islamo-marxist @ss.

Well. That's the "softer, easier" way. Some of us will carry on the old time, hard line tradition - esprit d' corps and all that.

The concept, IMO, is that you participate in the thread you put up.
Don't just post and run.

There is much to be garnered from your initial post.
Just three years since your awakening and you're a "long time" lurker...Hmmmmm...three years isn't a very long time.

May your subsequent posts prove as enlightening.

Totally with you there.

Post and run is incredibly poor form. And poor form is fatal flaw around here.

I wonder if "ri4dc" means "Radical Islam for [Washington] DC???"
