Skip to comments.Free Republic, Thank You And Good Bye

I asked Jim Robinson today to delete my account on Free Republic. He asked me to post an opus so some folks would not think that I was banned for no reason. Here is my brief opus:
Thank you Free Republic and Good Bye. This was an excellent forum for many years but now I do not think it is so in my humble opinion. The trend where the forum is going is very clear to me and I do not want to be part of it.
For all the Freepers with whom I have had good relationship and great discussions I want to thank you for all the good time we had together on this forum.
God Bless America and Our Brave Troops.
PS: Now Jim Robinson can ban my account.
What the heck happened???
You’re a great FReeper, Joseph. Thanks for your contributions in so many ways. So long, sir.
God bless you. You were one of the greats.
So sorry to see you go.
You mean because it's moving away from mindless cheerleading for the guys with an "R" behind their name?
There ARE other options! Jim, don't pull the plug! Let him sleep on it! (babble babble babble)
>>>What the heck happened???
A Ruling Class Republican not liking what’s going on?
That’s not much of an indication. Where do you think FreeRepublic is going?
??????? Would you care explaining what is wrong with FR now as opposed to when you joined?
One pit bull article to many I guess.
Thank you, I was...I really was...Actually, I still am!
I don’t think I’ve ever had any major issues with you.
In any case, don’t forget to remove the rectal implant.
That's exactly why he's taking a hike.
I find your lack of clarification disturbing. Bye.
It is a perversion of terms to say that a charter gives rights. It operates by a contrary effect that of taking rights away. Rights are inherently in all the inhabitants; but charters, by annulling those rights, in the majority, leave the right, by exclusion, in the hands of a few . . . They . . . consequently are instruments of injustice.
The fact, therefore, must be that the individuals, themselves, each, in his own personal and sovereign right, entered into a compact with each other to produce a government: and this is the only mode in which governments have a right to arise, and the only principle on which they have a right to exist.
As a lurker, I read and appreciated your insight on many topics.
I hate to see you leave. Please keep fighting the good fight! Good luck!
May we meet again FRiend. Thanks for the memories.
I feel your pain man.
As I recall, he was a member of the Howlin/Peach/nopardons brigade. I'm only surprised he didn't run off to MadIvan's (now defunct?) forum in 2008.
Does everyone have to be a drama queen?
We’re here to take back America no whine like little girls.
I am purely in union with Ghandi on this point ~
I am surprised jveritas, and will miss your contributions.
I hope you’re not converting to islam.
Hey, despite our butting heads, I’ll miss you. Your support of our warriors was always top notch, as well as your support of the country with your countless hours of arabic translations!
I’d suggest you come back after the primary season is over. With any luck, we’ll all be on the same team again.
I’m sorry to see you go. I’ve seen your name here for years.
Could you let us ‘less informed’ members know what caused you to decide to leave?
It would be helpful to know what went into your decision.
Is there anything we could do to help? You have to know when there are any big events going on FR is one of the best places to turn to for information. But you know that already.
We’d really like to know more about your reasons. Thank you.
Yep, I agree about the direction. It is quickly becoming a chat room with no etiquette, or lost fr etiquette. The youtube stuff, and the blogpimps are tough to deal with. Good luck!
Thanks for explaining so clearly the reasons behind your departure. We may not all agree with your reasoning, but at least nobody will be left wondering why you requested deletion.
Good luck to you!
LOL...I was just thinking of that picture when I read this.
Haven’t you done this before? Going somewhere more “comfortable”?
You have been a GREAT freeper. Thank you for your contributions. I will miss you.
Oh well, bon voyage & best wishes.
Whatever happened...sorry to see you go. Good luck and God bless you in all your future endeavors.
But FR has always tended to go against the establihment. Maybe it’s related to Karl Rogue.
All this clown does is bash conservative Republicans, particularly Governor Palin who has been instrumental in reviving the GOP and returning it back to conservative principles.
Doing that completely negates whatever good work he did translating Islamic documents.
Anyway, I hate Opuses. Just fricking leave. This ain't Cheers where everyone knows your name.
Bye jveritas,Thank you for all your translations.(((((Hugs)))))
Always enjoyed reading your posts!
What direction don’t you like?????
If we can’t talk things out here in FR- where do you think you will?????
Take care my FRiend.
I’m sorta wondering why you just didn’t stop coming here? Why the big cutoff?
Can I have all of your stuff?
He probably just wanted to say goodbye and not be disrespectful.
I think he did a good job.
I think I know why you are leaving.
Anyway, best of luck to you.
