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.
Thank you for a laugh so hard I have tears running down my face as I type... and there will probably being a typo or two in here as I'm still shaking with laughter...
The DC Chapter is the most effective group in FR and ends up getting treated like a red-headed stepchild.
DUDE, I have to break it to you but I am TRULY listening to that song RIGHT NOW!!!!
It is a live version by the Monks totally different than the other live reunion version I heard (that was recorded the day before).
I'm seeing them sing it later this year.
FR is a contact sport!
I'm so sorry. Will you forgive me?
In the future I vow to eating others. I do so want to make a new start in Free Republic.
It's them thar rabble-rousers...
No prob Jacqui!!!
It's too damn early for a group hug anyway.
Come to think of it, it's always too early for that. ;)
How about some harmless male bonding... like going downtown and throwing rocks at the homeless?
There are some FReepers I just wouldn't get in the same foxhole with at all, ever, even if my life depended on it.
I'm also sure that there are FReepers who feel exactly the same about me.
There are other FReepers that I'd pull an "Iwo Jima" for and jump on a grenade in the foxhole to save them.
I can only hope that there are others who would do the same for me. If not, and I find myself fighting alone, I'll get out temporarily, let it explode and then drop back in to fight on.
Sorry old chap, that's just the way it is.
Back to the trenches I go.
Thanks for the ping Meek. See above.
Rebelbase - I hadn't scrolled through this entire thread. Thanks for the information. LOL!
Eff you, b@ast@rd.
No one has apologized to me yet....I demand an apology.
(To assist you in future freeping after the Prozac wears off.)
"I LOVE YOU, MAAAAAN!!!"
[Not a ZOT, but too good to miss.]
I have two of whatever you're drinking, BJ. < /hiccup >
I, too, hereby Opus. I am gone. Outta here. Never to post again.
Now you're talkin'.
While we're at it, let's see if we can make time for knocking an old lady out of her wheelchair and closing down the orphanage.
