Skip to comments.It is time. My opus
Posted on 01/28/2013 8:10:56 PM PST by Melas
While the title says it all, I thought a goodbye was in order.
While I've been a FReeper for well over a decade, I must declare that it is time to part ways. While I have the greatest respect for a great many of you, the days where I can in good conscience remain silent about the issues that set me apart from the rest of FReeperdom have past. For clarity, or perhaps catharsis, I'm not entirely certain which, I'll lay them out on the table an call the ZOT down upon myself.
The racism: I just can't handle it anymore. FR has become increasingly racist since President Obama took office, and enforcement has dropped. Now, not a single crime can be reported with an "amish" comment, and I've yet to see a post express embarrassment or shame when lo and behold sometimes the perpetrators turned out to be lily white.
Homosexuality: FR is on the wrong side of history on this one, and I'll just leave it at that.
Mostly though, it's the hate. More and more posts reference violent solutions to political disagreements. Some subtly couched, others make no pretense. I wouldn't be surprised at all if I read in the morning paper that a FReeper murdered a federal bureaucrat or a federal judge.
I've learned so much, from so many of you, and for that I'm grateful. I genuinely and truly wish all of you well, and sincerely hope you all live out the rest of your lives in happiness.
You've made the right decision. I would suggest a sunny climate and close scrutiny of your meds intake.
Sorry to see you go, but I don’t think I could ever leave because I have no where else to go.
I will soon be 85 and I have not yet found it.
By the way, most of the posts here are trying to fight the same evils, although there are many opinions as to how to best do so. Some excellent ideas and some not good at all.
But in case you have not yet learned, strong differences as to how to solve a problem are stimulating to the mind. It forces thinking, and sometimes people must be forced to use their brains, not with a club but with provocation.
i don’t remember a racist elected as President in my lifetime, until 2008 and reelected in 2012.
he’s declared open WAR upon his own American citizens.
>> “There are quite a few on FR, sadly, who dont seem to care that much about the actual truth. Only about what they want it to be.” <<
And their names are Melas and Jeff Winston?
God bless you Melas ((((Hugs)))) Fatima
First reflex would be 'opi', but that's the headmaster latin teacher smacking me in the head reflex.
The plural of opus is opera.
Don’t like the residents of the Democrat Vote Plantation getting singled out even though their likelihood of criminal activity is exponentially higher than the public at large?
Ok, I’ll just tell you. You’re weird.
No it’s opussies, isn’t it?
I suppose we’re supposed to sit with our backs straight, our feet flat on the floor, our hands folded in our laps, and our eyes straight ahead, a slight smile on our lips, as the Left bashes our faces in with a pillow sack filled with billiard balls and runs America into the ground and turns it into a third-world country?
Do you understand the the ‘kinder, gentler’ approach of the first Bush is the type of reaction we allowed ourselves for three decades and that THIS is where it has gotten us?
They need to fear getting in our faces, because they do not at the moment.
They need to know that if they use ad hominem attacks on us (as logically fallacious as they are, they are successful) so we will use ad hominem attacks on them.
They need to know that it will no longer be one or two at every setting that they surround and ridicule to shame but that they will be surrounded anytime they begin their Alinksky tactics to push communism down our throats.
As another poster said, this country is at war for the soul and future of America. These are nasty times. It is not for the faint of heart.
The time for trying to get along with our enemies is long gone. They showed us what a foolish tactic that was.
It's in the Book. That's the way it will be. Yes or no, never maybe.
How did Mr. Nice Guy do in the last election against the one who openly declared a war on the white man?
Evidently, you don't know much history, or have at least simply failed to learn anything from it on this topic.
Homosexuality destroys all that it touches -- it starts with the heart and soon takes over the mind. It is a self-destructive mental illness, a form of clinical depression, immersed in pathological self-loathing, even as history has repeatedly shown, and it always will be.
Perhaps it already has addled your mind and rendered you ill.
