FR Back to Back Posts: Makes Perfect Sense (Vanity)
8/10/09 | Self

Posted on 08/10/2009 7:50:43 PM PDT by Fester Chugabrew

There are times when back to back posts on Free Republic strike the eye as if planned, but one must figure they were not. This thread is devoted to occasions where two or more FR posts occur in sequence that literally fit together. The example to follow was created by using the [CTRL] + [PRT SCR] function and then pasting into Photoshop for a quick cropping. (Sorry if sloppy.) I'm counting on other Freepers to keep an eye out for these occasions. If someone else has already started this work, please point me to the same and I'll post this sample over there with request to delete this thread.

But check this out . . . Oh, wait . . . it's Chet 99 at work. Anyway, this should be considered a sandbox of sorts for FR cats and dogs who . . . even if they cut and paste a shade (I did not this time), can put together an interesting sequnce of FR posts.

Have fun, and keep the socialists off our tails . . . please. Understand, too: the subjects under the circumstances in following example ought not be objects of jest, but instead objects of prayer. Real people involved. Thanks.


TOPICS: Arts/Photography; Cheese, Moose, Sister; Chit/Chat; Miscellaneous
KEYWORDS: humanevents; literaryjunk

AP vs. Fox. Cat vs. Dog. Fishy.

Typos in this post and subsequent replies are to be attributed to my childhood nemesis, AJAX; that pinching bastard who comes out of nowhere, inflicts harm, and then disappears - all without prior notice.

Gee, you’d have to send that to flag@whitehouse.gov.

Definitely looks fishy to me, and it involves healthcare in both cases.

Actually, in certain respects I’m guilty.

I have seen some amusing back-to-backs, but can’t think of them at the momement...

However, sometimes I tend to read the titles too fast and make up an entirely different story. For example:

Need glasses?

Early onset senior moments?

There’s some cute made up term for the misreads, but I can’t find it.

I hate it when that happens...

Something worth forwarding (The Latest E-Mail from David Axelrod)
August 13, 2009 1:54:54 PM CDT · by BubbaBasher · 5 replies · 88+ views
Whitehouse.gov ^ | 08/13/2009 | David Axelrod
Dear Friend, This is probably one of the longest emails I’ve ever sent, but it could be the most important. Across the country we are seeing vigorous debate about health insurance reform. Unfortunately, some of the old tactics we know so well are back — even the viral emails that fly unchecked and under the radar, spreading all sorts of lies and distortions. As President Obama said at the town hall in New Hampshire, “where we do disagree, let’s disagree over things that are real, not these wild misrepresentations that bear no resemblance to anything that’s actually been proposed.”...

Major Garrett Heated Exchange with Robert Gibbs over People Receiving Emails from Axelrod - Video

Here is video of Fox News’ Major Garrett getting into a heated exchange with White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs today about why people who have never signed up to receive emails from the White House are getting emails from White House adviser David Axelrod pushing Obama’s Government Health Care Plan. Garrett pushed Gibbs on how these people got emails when they never asked for emails. Gibbs was totally unprofessional towards Garrett, trying to tell Garrett how he should ask his questions and finally cutting him off by saying, “Let’s go somewhere else that might be constructive,” as he called...

Sorry for the duplicate. When I went to post I got a strange message about my post would be reviewed. So, I tried again...

Not sure what’s up with the reviewing post stuff though...

Shots fired as van crosses border into U.S.
August 13, 2009 4:14:46 PM CDT · by South40 · 2 replies
San Diego Union-Tribune ^ | 8/13/2009 | Karen Kucher and Angelica Martinez
SAN DIEGO — Two people were shot early Thursday morning while they rode in a van loaded with suspected illegal immigrants that sped north across the U.S.-Mexico border in San Ysidro, U.S. Customs and Border Protection officials said. U.S. authorities noticed the full-size van about 4:20 a.m. when they heard gunshots near the border. The van drove north into the United States from Mexico in the southbound lanes of Interstate 5, said Angelica De Cima, a Customs and Border Protection spokeswoman. San Diego police said the van apparently was shot at by Mexican authorities before it crossed the border. About...

Talking heads bite Barack Obama (when he’s lost John Stewart, he’s got a problem)
August 19, 2009 4:34:29 PM CDT · by presidio9 · 34+ views
The Politico ^ | August 18, 2009 | Mike Allen
When you’re Barack Obama and you’ve lost Jon Stewart, you’ve got a problem. “Mr. President,” the “Daily Show” host said Monday night, “I can’t tell if you’re a Jedi — 10 steps ahead of everything — or if this whole health-care thing is kickin’ your [rear.]” White House officials, by acknowledging that a public option (or government plan) is not essential to achieving health care reform, may have improved their chances of ultimately getting a bill. In the meantime, though, they have touched off the most ferocious backlash among liberal talking heads since President Obama took office. The president and...
