Opus: The End
07/12/2012 | nhoward14

Posted on 07/12/2012 6:37:01 AM PDT by nhoward14

Here I am to say goodbye. After reading Jim's latest screeds, after translating from the original German, I have decided enough is enough. I am no longer going to associate with a site that refuses to admit Romney is the duly-elected nominee of the Republican Party. Palin is not going to descend on the convention and chop his head off.

The site has been descending into cultish behavior for years, and I still can't figure out where all the money goes each quarter.

Having been invited to leave earlier this week by Jim, I am taking up his offer. Goodbye.

And Jim, ZOT this!

Piss-poor opus.

After you're zotted, you should become a retread and try the opus thing again.

You owe it to us...

I saw "opus" and was hoping for something "Bloom County" related.

Whatta disappointment.

a site that refuses to admit Romney is the duly-elected nominee of the Republican Party

Even if he is (and he's not, until the convention, though there's little doubt in the outcome), that doesn't mean I have to like it or vote for him. Of course, I have the "luxury" of living in Maryland, so if my vote actually mattered in terms of winning the state, Romney would be on a historic-level sweep anyway. (I'll be voting for downticket and local races, of course. We've won a few victories here and there by quite narrow margins.)

Geez, this is the third “goodbye” I’ve read lately. Grow up. We’re not here to make friends just educate and share conservative ideas although there are a few FReepers I consider a friend.

You don’t like the fact that Jim’s financials are private, fine don’t donate.

Such drama these days. I thought Middle School antics were done with 30 years ago.

It’s very strange but I’ve been on this site for 12 years and have never been banned or even warned even though I’ve ocasionally made a provactive statement or two just out of boredom. I support Romney against Obama, I’ve never been thrilled by Sarah Palin except before I had a chance to check her out. I’m unimpressed. Long and short of it is that if you can’t get along on FR I suspect it’s a personal problem.

You should have stayed and posted exactly in accordance with your beliefs until you were zotted. There is a lot more integrity and guts to that than this lame opus garbage.

The OPUS is for self absorbed drama queens. Real men (and women) get zotted with guns blazing, not whining and crying.

It was spineless capitulators like you that prevented the hundreds of sorely needed treason trials during the 60's that led to the mess the nation is in today.

Romney is more dishonest and liberal than Clinton !

Crouch down and lick the hands that feed you, and may posterity forget that you were our countryman.

I really don't care where the money goes. I give what I feel like, when I feel like, in accordance with how much I think having FR makes my life more enjoyable.

If Jim and John use it to keep themselves in good whiskey, then that's fine by me, as long as FR stays up an acceptable percentage of the time.

You don't have to support Romney to acknowledge that he is the Republican nominee, basically barring death.

There is a weird group of people around here who are still denying that. They really do believe that Sarah Palin is still a possibility.

It's a bit bizarro, if you ask me.

Yes it is sad actually that some people get so emotionally wrapped up in this stuff. Free republic is an online web site. I wish the person well and hope he/she survives free republic withdrawal syndrome.

He is the presumptive nominee. Barring his death, incapacitation, or massive death visited upon the delegates, he will be the nominee. Fortunately, if he needs my vote here in Tennessee, he has already lost.

Don’t let the door hit ya where the Good Lord split ya!

I am not happy with Romney either, but I am a practical realist when it comes to such choices. I’d prefer one of several others, but unless God provides a miracle at the convention we ain’t getting one. But even a Romney beats Obama six ways to Sunday.

No, because if they did that, they wouldn’t be able to go elsewhere and breathlessly say, “Look what I did at FR!”, and get high-fives and fist bumps and squeals of “You’re so cool!”

In my dreams.. (That’s so y’all can say “in your dreams!” and I can say “yup, that’s what I said...”

The first ballot is held. No one gains the requisite votes for nomination.

Our Lady of Wasilla gives a speech that wows the crowd. About half-way through, chants of “run, sarah, run” are heard under the applause.

About three-quarters of the way through, no applause is heard, because every pause is filled with “RUN, SARAH, RUN!”

She doesn’t get to finish the speech— the text is later published in her Presidential Memoirs— because she can’t get a word in with all the “RUN, SARAH, RUN!”

She steps away from the podium, and the MC gavels the place into some sort of order— at least to the point when the PA can be heard over the crowd. This takes 38 minutes. Two major networks cut away...

..and miss the part where the MC places the name of Sarah Heath Palin into nomination; the chairman of the Alaska delegation seconds, and the nomination is made “by acclamation.”

In my dreams... but I’ll be waiting.
