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.

Time to get the job done so that we can bicker again after we've won.

As long as we can still bicker afterwards, then, yes, I stand with you guys! <8^) We do seriously need to concentrate our energies...nothing is a given!

Yes, but you must signal your intention with a note to Jim, in triplicate, at least 4 days in advance.

Get real. "Everyone" are not loons, anarchists, malcontents, extremists, moral-liberals, and bigots. Those who did decide to leave for another forum can then call it the FreeBigots.com or FreeLoons.org.

I quit going to Mass when I had to hug the people on the right and left of me. If I had to risk hell for that, I'm sure not going to change by hugging you! You make me stink!!!

Visit anyone's profile page, and then click on their "In Forum" link.

I don't know why but, when I do that, I get a link with a '~' character in front of the name but no number.

Kumbaya...that one song, sung at countless Girl Scout Jamborees, just might be the fundamental reason for a lingering depression I have had for years. No lie.

Okay, I'm lying a little bit! But, you can make up all kinds of new verses and the next thing you know, you've got a bunch of dry drunk Girl Scouts. Don't sing the song...please.

Thank you!

My Dear Meek,

Do I take it you expect me to change my entire persona and get along with these people? Well, I'll try ... but do you mean even the yankees? ... or aggies? ... or the really stupid? ... or people who don't eat crawfish? ... or those folks in North Carolina who voted for Edwards and fly their flag wrong stripe up? ... or the ones who think they have better BBQ than we do?

Damn.

I'll go second.

I've been on this Forum for a while and have had the time to make a lot of enemies. I'm putting everything that's happened in the past into the grave and making a new start with everyone (you know who you are). I pledge to argue my case, but will always remember that even though we have differences, you ultimately are my friend in the trenches.

to quickly send in their cancellations because of all the loons, anarchists, malcontents, extremists, moral-liberals, and bigots given free reign here.

You mean they actually bother to cancel? Why not just quit logging on --- wouldn't that accomplish the same? Do you know a lot of people who sent in a cancellation?

We've played the personality cult game for three years, time to turn our attention to the task at hand, and to the true enemy.

This election is big, I think that it's only the fourth time that we've elected a war time president.

Time to get the job done so that we can bicker again after we've won.

That's the sanest most truthful post on this thread. BobJ -- I love you, man. And I don't even know you :)
