Skip to comments.Eating our own...Time to make a new start in Free Republic.
Posted on 07/26/2004 7:41:11 PM PDT by Bob J
The last few months I've seen an increasing trend for FReepers to start going for each others jugular. Sometimes we forget (I've certainly done it myself) that in the grand scheme of things, we are on the same team. We may disagree on priorities or how far we are willing to go, but we have enough enemy in the left without creating more amongst ourselves. We can disagree but be civil to each other. We can debate nuance, but not believe that our personal positions are more important than the health of the whole. Let's argue vigorously but remind ourselves the guy whose trachia we are ripping out today may be sitting next to us in a foxhole tommorrow.
I'm going to propose that we all make a new start. Let's put all past differences behind us and resolve to band together and fight the good fight, the elimination of liberalism as a significant culturual influence in America...and see that to its end in our lifetimes.
If you agree, please post your thoughts and ping your lists and your friends to this thread.
let'start with civil, we can work on behave tomorrow...heheh.
I didn't put it in breaking...
Maybe, but that wasn't the 'reason' given and I'd love to BUMP the original. The fact is, if true, it will take a million mouse warriors to make it an issue. I guess I sorta assumed that a conservative website might actually want news that wasn't pure AP filtered urea. My bad.
Dighton won't stop touching me ... and his cat ate all of my Fritos ...
Aculeus keeps opening the door to the bathroom while I'm in inside and then running away ...
general_re is being mean to me ...
L,TOWM ate all of the liberals and didn't save any for me ...
Constitution Day is a poo-poo head and told everybody that I have cooties ...
hellinahandcart is always smooching with Sauropod and it's just plain yucky ...
and poohbah won't let me play with his GI Joe doll and is always saying he got me when we're playing soldiers, when he knows that he couldn't hit the broadside of a barn.
If they're going to play, I'm going to take my ball and go home! So there! And I'll hold my breath 'til I turn blue and die and then you'll all be sorry ...
Oh no I was talking about another thread that got pulled, not that one.
You Bergered it, didnt you?
karmic hug... gotta make it a karmic hug
Watch those subtle accusations!
Okay, I can be civil, but I cannot promise to behave.
Yep, I can't comment yet.
But burying the hatchet...if it is not in someone's head...is a good idea.
I could not agree with it more.
I am here to fight for conservatism, to fight against liberalism, communism, anarchism, fascism, and ismism.
I am not here to have libertarians call me a fascist, or conservatives call me a liberal, or someone who had a post pulled from breaking news that was a duplicate of a sports related post call me a false friend.
Or am I venting? :-)
We are on the same side here, except for the posers.
Great post, Bob!
That's why you're on RIGHTALK..heheh.
Without reading any of the posts, I'll give you the benefit of the doubt purely based on your "Born On" date.
Now I'll proceed to read this thread while eating several slices of Humble Pie . . .
I don't hate anybody.....
Do I get to be mean once a month?
Thank you, that's very Brave of you (Hey, I didn't say we can't be witty or urbane...).
Seriously, though. Bob. JBob. BobsterJ. Without people like you, what would FR be today? People who care. People who have opinions, and aren't afraid to express them. People like you. And yes, people like me. People, people who need people. Thanks for existing, big guy.
