I guess FR is as PC as CNN and MSNBC, there was a day when FR could talk about anything, I guess Obama beat down JR too. :-(

I had a thread pulled just because I wanted to discuss welded-chain mailbox supports.

FR is turning into DU.

There is no absolute right to free speech. For example, you can’t yell “FIRE” in a crowded theater, cause a stampede where people are injured or killed, and expect to avoid responsibility by claiming your free speech rights.

Robinson et al. own this thread. They have rules and they have the discretion to pull threads that don’t comply with those rules.

Not having seen the original thread before it was pulled, I wonder if there were other reasons it was deleted.

Encourage affirmative action and other socio-political pathologies. Encourage increased spending.

Help the rest of us to starve those social pathologies for revenues. Become more self-sufficient. Help like-minded Americans. Cut personal costs. Build for personal security. Learn to produce something of value as a hobby for now. Stop buying.

Have fun. Enjoy the slide. Cheer, as the political regulators are foreclosed against and evicted.

Prepare to put real men into office after the collapse.

Sounds like a public service ad campaign.

Black-and-white picture of a collapsed welded-chain mailbox support, with a uniformed letter carrier in the foreground, looking at the camera. Big mustache, mirrored sunglasses. USPS shoulder insignia prominent.

Along the bottom, this caption: "Welded Chain Mailbox Supports: Stop The Madness."

I've seen threads pulled not because of the subject matter presented by the poster, but because they became magnets for offensive comments by others.

I remember one thread, a few years ago, that veered more and more off course - into fairly offensive language and metaphor - as it grew past 50 replys. Finally, the mods pulled it. The comment on the purple page was something like "I don't have time to babysit this thread."

ya know, for the record, I dove into a river to save a drowning black man about 20 yrs ago, and did.

Does that make me a racist?

I understand about affirmative action, but what do you mean "black people"?



Where there's a shell, there's a way.

25 years ago, we had Ronald Reagan, Johnny Cash, and Bob Hope.
Today we have Obama, no cash, and no hope!

If you can't appreciate the pure beauty of the violin after hearing this, something's wrong with your ears.

Or you can get raw with these strings.

How about this gamechanger from America's Got Talent (which they SHOULD have won).

Either way, the violin is sweet yet lethal.

Do it!

Well, I would think that a comment that mentioned an admin's relatives in almost any context could be reasonably be characterized as pushing one's luck.

No. For not being able to discuss inequity without engaging in gross generalization and stereotypical innuendo.

Quite a few people (I suspect) saw what you posted on that other thread. You were lucky all they did was pull it.

Okay then... Back to your ill-advised attempt to discuss welded-chain mailbox supports.
I understand those things drive the Koch brothers crazy.
They don’t like them, not one bit.

I was once banned because I commented on a post about Jeb Bush by saying something like, “No offense, but I don’t want any more Bush’s as president of this country.”

Banned! All you had was your post deleted.

Yeah. They can be sensitive about some things. It's too bad.

I'd rather they just force us to authenticate - at least a little bit - and then let people say whatever they want with the understanding that they 'own' it.

What is affirmative action “as we know it”? The advancement of black doctors or the advancement of a certain black community organizer to the Presidency?

Try mentioning anything about Mitt; you're sure to get zotted.

Gotta' love a 'conservative' site that, while allegedly supporting a return to conservative and constitutional values routinely violates a person's 'right' to speak their mind on the flimsy premise that 'JR owns it and he can do whatever he wants'.

Another self-appointed speech cop, no different than liberals and their 'hate speech' BS.
