My Apology to Free Republic...
Me | April 9, 2012 | RetSignman

Posted on 04/09/2012 9:22:18 AM PDT by RetSignman

My posts since 2004 have been filled with MY vision, MY Prophecies, MY Truth and MY vanities. I had lost sight of the only truth that ever truly matters.

My posts were never meant to discredit Free Republic but after standing back , I can see where that I may just have done that, especially with some of my latest 'opinions'. It is now obvious to me how easy my opinions can be used by outside sources as...just another example of hate rhetoric from this site.

My apology extends especially to Jim, the founder of this site, and my friends who I have forwarded my views. Most of my opinions and views were bourn out my deep concern for our country and it's future.

This is not to excuse my past overzealous opinions but a realization that I have led myself to into believing that my opinions may be a driving force to influence thought of others. Any reasonable person would have no problem looking at my views as the purest form of arrogance and egocentricy.

I know apologies can be viewed with doubt, suspicion and self serving but I vow to you and my friends, in the future, I will carefully consider my motives before making them public.

( sorry, the repetitive 'I's' and 'Me's' are unavoidable)

Ret.

( changing my tag line to: When you blindly follow mortals truth, you turn your back on His truth.

Don’t apologize for espousing what you believe in.

Why do you think your “over zealous opinions” have that much influence over other people?

For whatever it’s worth...

I scanned through three pages of your contributions back to mid-2010, and found nothing offensive, no condescending holier-than-thou posts, no “You stupid ‘birther’” or “Zimmerman is GUILTY” posts.

As far as self-serving is concerned, I haven’t seen a blog-pimp post of yours, either, and that’s about the height of it here.

Perhaps you’re growing away or maturing in some way, but seriously, in the past couple of years at least, I’m surprised that anyone would find anything you’ve posted to be objectionable.

My .02.

I don't think you need to apologize for your posts...the ones I read were respectfully submitted.

You have deep convictions.

>>I’m going to post a vanity post in which I complain about self-centered vanity posts because they inconvenience me<<

Let’s see here. Someone decides to go on the forum that has by and large the biggest group of fast and intelligent smart alecs anywhere and then apologize for being self-centered with the highest “me/my” ratio since barry the zero’s last speech. This is a good idea? ;)

"So were you quoted somewhere in a negative light?"

Reading for meaning there, Gunner!

He said it's obvious to him how his opinions ~can~ be used, not that they ~have~ been used.

So he's either begging for someone to use his opinions, disappointed that no one has used his opinions, or he's setting us up for Paul Harvey's "The Rest of the Story" which will be the subject of yet another vanity post.

As for me, my looney bun is fine, Benny Lava.
