Eating our own...Time to make a new start in Free Republic.
7-26-04 | Bob J

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.

You mean to say you visit someone's profile page and click on the "In Forum" link as shown above and you see no number at the end of the URL?

I see what you mean now, freeper #8751. With the mouse positioned over the "In Forum" link, the name is displayed. Once the posts are shown, the URL changes to "id=" and the number. Thanks.

To defeat the enemy outside, we must first stand united against the enemy within, it's a fight for everything we hold sacred, to fight among ourselves will spell defeat in levels we have not considered.

Beauseant!

There's enough of that to go around, but what annoys me more than anything else are the catty, backbiting remarks I see that seem to have no other purpose than to intimidate...particularly newbies.

Newbies will be the life or death of this forum. It appears to me there are some self appointed cranks whose primary misson on this forum is to bully. I expect you know who they are, but due to internal political entanglements, there's not much you can or will do about it.

The name "Blunt" makes me laugh.



Ol Roy is a hoot, too. President of Some Baptist University (SBU), gets to DC, and realizes its time to trade in the misses for a new model. Decides that boot leg smokes are a threat to our national security. Yeah, "Blunt". Almost as good as "Puffy".
