No Longer the World’s Policeman, We’re Now the World’s Social Worker
Canada Free Press ^ | 07/20/14 | Michael R. Shannon

Posted on 07/20/2014 7:05:47 AM PDT by Sean_Anthony

It’s 9 AM late July and already the day is shot to hell. The temperature is over 80 and the humidity would wilt a Puritan’s collar.

You’re supposed to be taking Migra, your Mexican Water Spaniel, on a 400–hundred-mile car trip. The dog’s 14–years–old if he’s a day, and who knows if he’ll live long enough to be reunited with the rest of your family. Plus, you can’t just motor out the driveway because that’s not a good idea where you live.

Would you please advise me what publications we are not supposed to read? That way I could avoid clicking on any postings that are not “approved”.

Read what you like, I never suggested anything else.

My criticism is of this guy’s posting habits.

Seemed pretty clear to me.

I am just trying to understand what is offensive about his “posting habits”. Is it that he does not post from enouch varied sources? Is it that he post items already posted by others? I found the article interesting. Is there something about the article that makes it inappropriate for FR. I took a quick look at the link you posted, and while I did not read each posted article, the only thing noticeable was that a lot was from the Canadian source. That brings be back to the question: What is his “posting habit” that is so offensive? I don’t know him or you. I have no animosity toward any fellow Freeper. I was just curious about what the issue was?

Also, it seems he identifies as Canadian. Not unusual that a Canadian would reference Canadian sources. Do we not like Canadians now. I can’t keep up.

He posts exclusively from a single source.
Surely there is a reason for that, wouldn’t you think?

Too consistent for coincidence.

I agree, it is not a coincidence. I now see the problem. He should subscribe to a more international varity of news sources. He should keep a spreadsheet to keep track of the sources he then post from. How many different sources are we required to post from to be acceptable? Would three be enough? Which countries would be correct, Canada, U.S., Lithuania?

I JUST NEED TO KNOW THE RULES!

Why do you think he post exclusively from a single source?
Do you think he owns the source? He is being paid by the source to generate traffic? Some type of clandestine Canadian plot to overwhelme Free Republic?

The OP is a blog pimp, and has never done anything but promote his links here and has never responded to any freeper or participated at FR, NEVER.

Today he posted an excerpt about America becoming the world’s bitch, while he makes FR his blog hits bitch.

Why don’t you post to him and ask him to respond to all these posts about his blog pimping?

So he joined FR in 2004 just in case, at some time in the future, Canada Free Press might pay him to boost their site hits? I think enough people probably visit the site anyway without paying people to direct traffic there. JMO obviously.

Then if what you believe is true, maybe you should ping the moderator or Jim and ask for the poster to be banned?

Yep. I get it.

I can’t stand people who post and then don’t engage in conversation about the subject they posted.

Why, it’s almost as if they’re mutes...intellectually.

Do what you want with the information provided, if you think you want to do that, don’t be advising me to do things for you.

Just because JR doesn’t like blog pimping, what made you think to ask him to ban the poster?

second is the claim that the children are fleeing dangerous neighborhoods. Well okay, but when you are frightened do you normally flee 1,200 miles?

I think the ultimate blog pimper is someone who uses sites just to post links to and has no knowledge or interest in the site itself, and never returns to look at his threads.

He posts and goes, never to return to that thread again because it’s only purpose was to install a link.

While I like much of what is written at Canada Free Press, you run the risk of appearance on par with pimps.

Maybe you work there and are trying to gin interest in the site. If so, Free Republic is not part of your business plan and you risk Zot Heaven if you think it is and then less people will be exposed to CFP.

Consider engaging in conversation about your posts or risk a lightning.strike

BTW, I keep hearing about this letter Ted Nugent supposedly wrote, replete with expletives, regarding the border issue.

My memory says there is no such letter. Just some tweets about sending food to the starving invaders.

I think the letter my lefty friends are referring to is some stoopit hoax and have told them as much.

Do you know anything about this boo chit or have some Nuggie follower who does?

I smacked it down hard and informed them that Ted doesn’t talk like what they are describing.

Maybe there is a Hoaxium site that contains this fraud?

It’s important, as a young friend is spreading the letter on Facebook. She is a Republican, newly married into a devout republican family and her husband is eyeing a run for congress or the Senate.

Thnx

Y’all were just all up in arms about it, talking about how the poster never replies, etc. I have no dog in this fight and couldn’t care less if he posts all day long from CFP or is banned or never comes here again.

You have me totally confused.

What is this gibberish about a letter that you can’t tell us about, that is being plastered all over Facebook according to you but you don’t have, or can’t obtain a copy of it for some reason.

This is gibberish, are you just trolling?

Our most esteemed humblegunner was able to provide the letter.

I confirmed this is what my lefty friends are objecting to.

Somehow they have extrapolated this as hateful.

Oh, and “We were all immigrants at one time”.

So, wrote this yesterday.. this what your talking about?

Thanx alot US government numbnuts. We went from the last best place to the dumbest fkn idiots on planet earth. How else can you xplain that we are the ONLY country in the world that has abandoned the very foundation of what makes a country a country. Obama you dumb mthrfkr you!
Dear Mr. Obama, Senate and Congress:

I’m planning to move my family and extended family into Mexico for my health, and I would like to ask you to assist me.

We’re planning to simply walk across the border from the U.S. into Mexico, and we’ll need your help to make a few arrangements.

We plan to skip all the legal stuff like visas, passports, immigration quotas and laws.

I’m sure they handle those things the same way you do here. So, would you mind telling your buddy, the President of Mexico, that I’m on my
way over?

Please let him know that I will be expecting the following:

1. Free medical care for my entire family.

2. English-speaking Government bureaucrats for all services I might need, whether I use them or not.

3. Please print all Mexican Government forms in English.

4. I want my grandkids to be taught Spanish by English-speaking (bi-lingual) teachers.

5. Tell their schools they need to include classes on American culture and history.

6. I want my grandkids to see the American flag on one of the flagpoles at their school.

7. Please plan to feed my grandkids at school for both breakfast and lunch.

8. I will need a local Mexican driver’s license so I can get easy access to government services.

9. I do plan to get a car and drive in Mexico, but I don’t plan to purchase car insurance, and I probably won’t make any special effort to learn local traffic laws.

10. In case one of the Mexican police officers does not get the memo from their president to leave me alone, please be sure that every patrol car has at least one English-speaking officer.

11. I plan to fly the U.S. flag from my housetop, put U.S. flag decals on my car, and have a gigantic celebration on July 4th. I do not want any complaints or negative comments from the locals.

12. I would also like to have a nice job without paying any taxes, or have any labor or tax laws enforced on any business I may start.

13. Please have the president tell all the Mexican people to be extremely nice and never say critical things about me or my family, or about the strain we might place on their economy.

14. I want to receive free food stamps.

15. Naturally, I’ll expect free rent subsidies.

16. I’ll need income tax credits so that although I don’t pay Mexican taxes, I’ll receive money from the government.
17. Please arrange it so that the Mexican Government pays $4,500.00 to help me buy a new car.

18. Oh yes, I almost forgot, please enroll me free into the Mexican Social Security program so that I’ll get a monthly income in retirement.

I know this is an easy request because you already do all these things for all of his people who walk over to the U.S. from Mexico. I am sure that the President of Mexico won’t mind returning the favor if you ask him nicely.

So Effin Right on Nuge! !!

You rock but, you know that.

I am informed that there will be a group beat down discussion on this subject and I had best be prepared.

Yeah, right. Bring it.

I’ll go toe to toe with anyone.

this is not defensible and is absolutely unAmerican.

The problem was the same I presented to you.

I was getting all this dreck that Nuge supposedly said and they refused to give me a source so I could discuss it with them intelligently.

Almost none of what they said made sense and didn’t sound at all like Nuge or anyone else for that matter.

They pull this crap all the time. Giving me bogus information and demanding I agree with their position, sans evidence of their premise and I just wouldn’t agree if they weren’t interested in an informed opinion.

Sadly all the racist dreck they insisted he said is mysteriously absent and we’re back to black congressmen getting spit on....as...they...passed...uhmmmm...I Don’t know how many cameras, camcorders, phones and news cameras.

Balderdash.
