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.
Well you dirty rotten something or another. I'M not from SD! I'm from OC! Get it straight!
Bob? Thanks for starting the thread!! It's SO needed.
Hey...anyone out there own a Lear Jet who wants to fly me & The Geezer up to Fresno? For oh....cheap? :-)
Calling the speling police, calling the speling police!
Officer arrest that man!
I tell you what, I can fight the libs, I can fight the antifreepers, I can fight the bungholes on FR, but I can't fight them all and Jim and the mods too.
It's a fuchsia thing! ;-)
Neither are YOU a Dork, dumpster diver or whatever the heck it was you said. Dear.
WE'RE ON DRUDGE? Is THAT what I just saw? LOL!!!!!!!!
I don't care what you say, man. Your still not getting my bud light.
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.
Hey, you're REALLY GOOD!
Let me ping some of our
other HOT talent to see your work.
Zapping Trolls is great fun!
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.
I'm watching Clinton right now on TV...
"Just say no"
You can get no respect.
LOL!!! I DID! O.C. RULES!!!!!!
I should hate you JUST BECAUSE you're a blonde...
I know you're not, but
I have always pictured you blond.
BUT, wait a sec...
who is the "brain" blond?
Me = blond
or YOU = blonde?
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".
Man , or lady you really expect to travel in style!
