I don’t see a difference. The crap the msm spews is likewise pulled out of the air. Cal it spin or whatever but the MSM saying Obama cut defects is no different to me than Jones truther BS. Both of them took something unprovable/false and claimed it to be true ‘from thin air’
But it doesn’t really matter in the end. Both are totally full of crap.
He provides a product.
It costs him money to provide that product.
He simply asks for donations to keep it running.
You can stop in and comment.
If you enjoy stopping in, abide by his rules.
If you find his service of use, donate.
But, remember it is his house, so abide by his rules.
It’s not rocket science.
LOLA, L-O-L-A Lola!
I guess my frustration is I see the likes of AJ and Ventura infecting our side where as before, our side was known for rationality and looking beyond the spin. We expect libs to fall for MSNBC’s BS. What we shouldn’t accept is our side falling for similar BS because it panders to our fears.
This is the direct result of what libs did to the education system. Since the 90s (hardcore) and well into mid decade to varying extents, they removed logic and critical thinking courses entirely and those concepts from the learning process.
We now have one full and part of another generation that simply cannot ‘think’. They do not have the means to do so. They only know what they literally were programmed to ‘know’
And any IT guy can tell you GIGO...Garbage in, Garbage Out. It really does come down to that one simple thing. And remember the Kruschev line about “We won’t get you, but we’ll get your kids”.
“AJ may be crazy on some stuff (fluoridation)”
Mandrake! Our precious bodily fluids!!!
Back in the day true blue liberals were allowed to spout their stuff now and then.
Now much much less dissent is allowed. The last purge took place on people who were saying they didn't like the fact that Newt sat on the couch with Pelosi...that was a zottable offense. Don't think it still is anymore but the purges have generally shrunk the population.
True. But I question if someone is so braindead to accept either AJ or the MSM as legit news/fact/info, if 1: we want people that gullable on our side to begin with and 2: if they ARE on our side.
I understand and share your frustration. Believe me.
I missed that one, do you have evidence of such a thing?
The irony was that Hayden was a flat Commie hisself!
Another one of those movies they couldn’t make today. You would have a dozen special interest groups screaming bloody murder at being offended.
ansel12: “Good gosh, you must think that those of us who have been preaching that for 40 to 45 years, as almost God-like.”
Frantzie would turn every thread into a rant against TV. Gun control? Must turn off the TV. Inflation? Turn off the TV! You get the drift.
I guess he was banned at some point. He was apparently reinstated, but I never see him online anymore. However, he was right. TV is a sewer, and the downward spiral is accelerating.
I only watch a very small number of programs—usually online. I can’t stand any news program, including Fox News. They only seem on the right because everyone else is hard left. Fox News is actually center right. There are millions upon millions of people out here who have nowhere to go except talk radio.
Well I said Newt/Pelosi/Couch was a horrid idea that damn near ended his consideration for me and I’m still here.
what difference does it make now?
Ho hum. No one was denied a voice. The Internet is a huge place. If you don’t like what we stand for or the way we do things here, then open up your own site and shout it from the roof tops. No one will stop you.
I often tell the story of my daughter getting a high mark on a final essay on the RevWar. It ENDED at Revere’s ride.
“Ah Britt, Where’s the...you know...WAR???”
“That’s all they taught us Dad.”
No surprise people can’t count change.
What happened to Parsifal, who always signed himself “Parsy?” He had a very unique posting style.
I only recently read about it. He was apparently one of the guys Ronaldus was fighting in Holywierd. There are several articles out there about SH and his ties to communism. Shocked me too.
Parsy was cool
I cannot remember the details.
None. why did you bring it up?
Gee nobody mentioned Atator LOL. A strong second place to Rivero in Tinfoil follies.
If I were to guess, I’d say they were taught the RevWar was fought by the British to liberate the Indians from the Tea Party terrorists.
Just a guess...Probably right though.
I’ve been openly critical of Newt AND Sarah Palin, and I have never even been warned. Perhaps these people also lacked basic social skills and manners.
Ayn Rand had it right. Anyone who comes up with a new idea, works hard, and/or lives responsibly has a monkey on their back. Strive to get ahead and the takers are right there demanding a cut. The takers don’t even see anything wrong with it. They’re owed it by virtue of being born.
It’s like the story of the golden goose. The takers wanted more, so they pumped more food (government debt) into the goose to get more eggs. Now the goose has a funnel taped in its throat, they’re force feeding it, and they’re squeezing the poor goose to get it to shoot out a few more eggs. The goose still lives...barely, but it’s definitely on its last legs.
That is him.
You got the name correct.
The circle probably shrunk because shilling for the GOP and excusing their BS isn’t conductive to the reason most people come here. And people who do shill are shredded without mercy. Been that way a long time.
But lately ‘feelings’ rule many minds here so we see more shilling. And so, more shredding.
Frantzie was right in a general sense, but he only came to that realization recently, after millions of conservatives have been preaching it, writing on it and refusing to watch TV for 40 and 50 and 60 years.
Frantzie was a nut who kept telling bizarre tales of Islam controlling Fox, and his golfing in Iceland or something and whacky stuff.
Here is an imitation I did of him after he was banned.
You only say that because Saudis control 175% of Fox and TV is controlling your mind and I havent watched TV in a year and I live in Iceland or Massachusetts or somewhere and Fox is controlled by the Saudis.

Yes, that was Allegra, and it wasn't "supposedly". She did work for a gov't sub-contractor in the Middle East, and posted plenty of pics to prove it. I really miss her, too. She was definitely one of the more interesting (and very NICE) FReepers I've seen here over the years.
I miss a LOT of FReepers who have been banned, or the *many* who have left FR on their own since about the spring of 2007 or so...
Oh good grief! You've lost track of the start of this whole thing...I didn't bring up the subject. I answered someone else's question.
Doesn't do you any good to jump all over me for answering a question.
Trust me on this ~ she left this forum way before she was banned. (And yes, she did go anti-freeper).
Oh, Just as a side note/follow up on the music industry/socialism thing...
The post defending capitalism and correctly blaming sicialism was pulled. (not me ;). But the following reply to is, below, remains...
“- you’re crazy dude...Capitalism ate itself out and look what a mess were in right now...start taxing, educating people, healing people etc etc...and keep those greedy wall street people in check !!!!”
THAT is the mentality we are dealing with.
Amen. I really miss Allegra... :-(
No supposedly about it. She worked in Iraq for six/seven years.
That describes a lot of good FReepers who have "departed" since the spring of 2007...
The problem with allowing true blue liberals to post is that it can become very disruptive. Most people have “facts” to back up their positions. I don’t like threads where each side keeps listing those facts, especially statistics, and no minds are changed. Then you have the moral issues. If someone thinks two guys sodomizing each other or chopping up babies in (or barely out of) the womb is OK, then there’s nothing you or I can say that’s going to change their mind.
Spoken like a true retread. Who did you used to be before you rode the lightning?
