Restornu; I used to be StickyWings

Ive got to tell you I am d*mned p#ssed off about this

Resty - you hold yourself up as a pious old biddy - and then use that freeper alias to agitate everyone. Were you the apocalyptic chicken too?

I really have to say I suspect your dyslexia is a hoax - because stickywings typed clearly AND made sense

you deserve banning

As always, I've got mixed feelings about multiple identities. I think that one family should have one for each person in the family who is on FR....that should be OK.

To the extent that any alternate identity is used for trolling, I guess that should be controlled.

Maybe the best reason is just so JR can figure out how many people he actually has using this site.

Allow me to play devil's advocate on resty's behalf for a minute...

Pressforward,Saints was used from March 2001 through October 2001.

StickyWings was used from March 2002 to August, 2002.

Itsfreewill was used from May 2002 through September 2002 (overlapping the StickyWings account). I can find no other posts from that account, which was suspended/banned just within the last two hours.

Now all these accounts were created after the restornu account was created in July of 2000, but only that one account is still used regularly. We might conclude, therefore, based on the cessation of this "alias" activity that restornu is no longer "playing games" with his/her IDs. On the other hand, presuming Jim can take him/her at their word, I think a full disclosure of every alias account ever held by restornu ought to be made to JR, if not to the people he/she has stalked and offended using those aliases over the last few years - and for all I know, he/she may have made such a disclosure to JR already. I'm guessing if that conversation didn't take place back in '01/'02, it's happening now.

It's JR's playgound and he can run it any way he sees fit -and I'll abide by his rules and decisions in this regard. But if it were my playground, and I'd caught a user red-handed with multiple aliases, that's what I'd be demanding if that poster wanted to remain active. Apparently restornu has never made such an admission or apology to those he/she has offended. If he/she had, you wouldn't have been surprised by these posts, Rev.

The same goes for acting and the writing jobs. We've ceded those areas to the Left, and it bites us in the butt.

I'm not sure if they were ceded as such. I think people predisposed to liberal ideology gravitate more to the liberal arts, while conservative gravitiate to business and science.

The only way to fix it is to insist the media balance their intellectualism through their hiring and what their product.

Thank you Mrs. Smith,

According to a few here we are only a Republic and Democracy is bad, evil even. I hope the you read all the other posts.

I think the Constitution is a fine document...The rest is politics...

What part of this statement, from FR's "Posting/Guidelines" page, do you have trouble abiding with?

Ain't this the part where ya take him down to the jailhouse, Deputy Fife?

What you have here, Andy, is your basic no-win situation. I can't lock the perp up in the cell with Otis. The perp's a Mormon, and you know how they feel about alcohol and drunks. It just wouldn't be right - think of Otis! And I can't shoot the perp. You only gave me but one bullet, and the perp has exibited multiple personalities. Which one do I point the gun at?

Thank you and May God bless you and Free Republic. I made my contribution for the first time after just a month of lurking and posting here. Within days of posting, I was speaking up with friends and acquaintances about my beliefs, something I usually kept quiet about. Thanks again for being here, this site does make a difference.

"And I haven't even mentioned how evil I truly believe the official Democrat Party platform is. Here's a partial
laundry list of what the Democrat Party supports and promotes: abortion; homosexuality; feminaziism;
environmentalism; government control over every aspect of our lives and society; socialized health care;
disarmament of the American people; subjugation of the U.S. to the U.N.; the complete elimination of our national
sovereignty; complete destruction of our basic traditional family unit; loss of personal freedoms and individual
liberty. In other words, complete destruction of our Constitution and Bill of Rights and our American way of life."

BTTT!
