One Who Knows...aka OWK.
FReepers have always been known for doing research and digging for facts. They can sniff out stuff that’s just unbelievable!
Allegra is 100% genuine and a better person than most people realize or give her credit for. She has spent more time in the dust bowl than many OGA ‘operators’ and she does it by choice.
I wish I could find a picture I took of a sign one day, outside a small pharmacy in Salem, MA...it said “Allegra is Here!”
I pulled over when I saw it, snapped a shot of it and posted it to her...:)
The problem with logical discussion is that no one wants to think themselves ‘illogical’. So you get garden variety unsupportable BS hammered to death in the name of logic. Case in point, the recent ‘abortion for votes scam several ‘freepers’ were running on behalf of the GOP.
To them, it was completely ‘logical’ to give ground on the abortion issue if that meant building a bigger tent for the 2014 elections.
Now if anyone can explain how it’s logical to kill babies for votes I’m all ears. But you can’t twll them any more than tell Dem/libs that ‘No, this is contrary to everything we believe in and so is not logical for us to adopt as a position’.
“We”, you see, were the illogical ones. Now apply this to many of the discussions you see here. Plenty of infiltration by leftist/moderates shouting down people sticking to their guns in the name of ‘logic’ and ‘pragmatism’....which are two very different things....which also escapes them entirely.
I posted with him on a start up forum maybe a couple of years ago. I believe it was True Blue Liberty or something like that, but neither of us lasted very long. Don't know where he went from there.
Willie had much experience with smartass disorder, he looked at one every morning in the mirror.
He was warned in no uncertain terms by Jim but just couldn’t be nice and that’s what got him the Zot. :-)
Great tag line!
Heh, I agree. I likened logical discussion on FR to a bell shaped curve, and there are those tapering “tails” on either side that make you look askance at some discussions.
As in...”Ok. This thread is over for me, I can’t take it seriously anymore...”
Kind of like the Internet in miniature. You have to have your filter active all the time.
I wish all the old posters were still here. So many good posters and thinkers have disappeared. I used to love TheGreatSatan. Not sure if he got banned or just went away.
“I used to love TheGreatSatan”
Now there’s something you don’t see every day ;)
Wee Willie even got the boot at Liberty Post.
-— And who was that guy who posted about trains all the time?-——
LOL I was just going to post about him. Willie..... Green? I used to call him Boxcar Willie.
He should have posted with a disclaimer (not a paid spokesperson for the American Railroad Association).
Yes, I didn’t think about that as I typed it! (:
"Some people dont really want people to analyze what they say. They just want to say it."
Aint that the truth! The analysis of what you post here can be brutal and so it should be.If you don't consider your words your credibility could die the death of a thousand cuts.
It tends to make one really really carefull if they want to be heard or read.Still,sometimes it can be gut bustingly hilarious watching know-it-alls implode.
Cooler heads on that site eventually turned it over to me and the antifreeping ex-freepers went underground on fb.
The “official” freeper site on fb is now back in our hands:
Does anyone know what happened to Doctor Raoul? I’ve searched everywhere for him. He shut his phones off, snail mail to him was returned with the note, moved, no forwarding address.
He was always one of my favorites-—we had a group that gathered in DC once in a while to “Freep the Creep” aka Bill Clinton. Kristinn, Doctor Raoul, Clinton’s a Liar—I know I’m leaving several out, but can’t come up with their names right now.........
Hm, do you have any specific stories?
Hey, I resent that. We aren't all, all the time.
I personally know a few freepers who don’t post much (if at all) anymore, and when I asked them why, they said it was too depressing to have the decay and destruction of this country by the left shoved into their faces in thread after thread.
I know how they feel. It is why I stopped listening to Rush Limbaugh and Mark Levin, both of whom I enjoyed listening to, but...there are only so many ways to state the truth without being repetitive.
The White House.
It’s a microcosm of how the collective ‘we’ got to this mess to begin with.
The net ‘freed’ people to spout whatever as holy writ and then the PC of ‘Thou shall not offend” gave them cover. We say that displayed best in “How dare you question my patriotism” by the libs in the Iraq war.
Same stuff, different day.
Hahaha...I walked by a window with t-shirts in it the other day, and one of them said:
“So, two Irishmen walk out of a bar...”
(Yes, that does happen)
‘Where Are They Now?’
I had forgotten about Liberty Post. Just looked in over there and saw that I’d been featured in a post in the Biker Bar section. I’m so proud of myself, I’m tempted to add a tag line “As featured on Liberty Post”
You mean the guy that lowered the oceans and made Islam love us?
They were driven off by the Palinistas.
The Swordman guy used to spam FR with multiple posts a day about the glories of Apple products and had very thin skin when anyone made fun of AppleBoyz. Never recall seeing him post on any thread dealing with politics or conservatism, so I can only assume he was a troll here only to promote Apple stuff that no one asked about. His constant threats to hit the abuse button are not missed.
Some just died.
Most freepers are what, 70 and up?
The activism is now limited to just sternly worded vanities or calls for donations.
I am not very quick in conversation, I don’t have that gift of being able to do on-the-fly analysis and formulation of a response.
I enjoy writing, and I feel that it gives me time to formulate and think through what I really mean, which is good for this environment, because people will readily poke holes, and that is fully expected.
Hey, I have my own sacred cows that have been slaughtered and put on a spit over the Free Republic coals here. It makes me realize just how fallible my opinions can be on occasion. It is humbling.
Only the misogynists and MSM believers.
A trully amazing thing that.
I was drawn here because I wanted to hammer my new faith at the time.FR will certainly burn the fat off of your world view.If you can keep your feelings in check.
And we Palinistas apparently failed miserably...since there are still several PDSers haunting the Palin threads.
HIS property? Oh, you mean the property that he asks us (ALL the time) to pay for???
It’s real. Harder to see without the hat, though.
Yes! Good Old Doctor Raoul! Great guy, I met him on more than a few occasions with that great DC Chapter gang!
I loved seeing him wear that Halliburton baseball cap. Just the sight of it was enough to drive the Moonbats into a spittle-lipped rage!
I swear, he would incline and turn his head just to be sure they got a good view of it!
Man, that was great!
Always had someone to blame when FR server took dump, but MiaT is no longer chewing up bandwidth.
Yeah. Some are still here. And STILL spouting talking points from the MSM.
LOL! MiaT’s posts would give me nightmares!
Well, “feeling’ is the new way for a lot of ‘conservatives’ these days. They seem to share that with their supposed enemies. The greatest thing about FR is as you said, the ability to burn through the BS. Lord knows there’s plenty of that lately.
