Goodbye Freerepublic...
vanity

Posted on 04/15/2012 6:13:13 PM PDT by djl_sa

I can tell that Freerepublic has started spiraling into hysteria similar to what I sensed around the 2008 election time.... I'll check back in in 2013 to see if things simmered down.

"Censorship reflects a society's lack of confidence in itself. It is the hallmark of an authoritarian regime..." --Justice Potter Stewart, dissenting Ginzberg v. United States, 383 U.S. 463 (1966)

If you’re coming back then it’s not really goodbye. Goodbye. Or hello. Or early welcome back.

Is this the best opus you can do? C’mon, you’ve been here long enough to give us a few provocative paragraphs! Or else, are you running for the worst opus ever?

You are right, these things come and go. This wave has been especially rancorous but after all, it's merely "sound and fury signifying nothing."

Cheers. See ya 'round.

Censorship deals with what the government can or cannot do to stifle you.

A privately owned company, where you are a guest, can do what it likes.

Always sad to see someone that’s been here for a long time take off, so I do hope you’ll be back after the current hysteria dies down.

And try and ignore the inevitable a-holes and suck-ups that will post nasty replies on the thread. They don’t represent a majority here - just a loud minority.

Censorship

The fact that you have a right of free speech doesn't imply that you can go into somebody's house - someone who has graciously invited you into that house to enjoy its benefits - insult the owner, and expect not to be shown to the door.

Your right to swing your fist ends at Jim Robinson's nose.

Or do you think you have rights but Jim doesn't?

Reviewing your posts for the last few months it seems to me that you are all too willing to give up on just about everything, and, worse, when folks really need to dig into something to see where the truth is in a murky situation, you want them to hang back "until" the facts are all in.

We don't have that luxury in these times. The dying MSM creates facts, and there can be no retribution for that because they are all rapidly going out of business. This is their last shot at power and they're using everything they've got!

Do not be fooled by imitation Republicans. Neither Obama nor Romney are real Republicans. They do not deserve our votes.

If both were to drop out tomorrow you'd see the US dollar hardening up and the stock markets crashing all records!

I’d be curious to hear why you’re opting out. This is a tough time all round - economically, socially, civilizationally, etc.

IMHO, we need to get involved at the local level and start turning things around.

Hope all’s well, and good luck.

The analogy is a poor one. Most people who invite others to their home do not then ask their guest to pay their mortgage.

Good point.

I’ve checked FR just about every day since I joined how long ago and I don’t post every day. I have noticed a decrease in quality over the past few years.

Well, they sure might if said guests are eating the groceries and running up the electric and water bills.
