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.

That dude with the "Outland" and "Bloom County" strips on his profile page should really be part of this discussion, don't ya think?

Absolutely. I've heard several quasi-opi on this thread.

I don't mind the Mods pulling a post I've placed up if it's a duplicate. That's a service, actually. What bugs me is the person who points out the redundancy (without a link to the previous thread) as if the rest of us spend 24 hours a day on FR and should have caught it the first time.

Kidding aside, there are certain topics that draw certain posters, and I avoid them like the plague. If you are not drinking their kool-aid and post a differing viewpoint you are summarily leaped on by all and personally attacked. It's certain posters, who inhabit certain topics, that I refuse to even acknowledge.

There's one thread ongoing right now that I have an opinion on but I'm not going to go near, because the posters so far are like rabid dogs. And I haven't had my shots.

To: The Libertarian Dude
I nominate cinFLA to make the first move.


LOL! Don't let cinFLA get to you Libertarian Dude. Cindy has a grudge that goes back to her Newsmax days. She claims to be a guy, but is really a feminazi. She knows that Gore would have won the election if Libertarians would have voted for him instead of Bush. She just wants to drive you out of the Conservative camp.

Whatch the flame she'll deliver me after this post. Great fun!!!

Re.: "Bob wants to sing Kumbaya..."..

I composed some "new" and decidedly un-PC lyrics for that old Folk-ditty some years ago. Being a Conservative "Folkie" can be interesting!

It does my heart good to see this issue being dealt with, BTW; better late than never.

Here's hoping (and praying, if you don't mind) that this refreshing Spirit of camaraderie and relational maturity endures and abides. This is our "Community" after all, and civility & mutual respect, I opine, are the interwoven golden fibers that hold it together and lend it strength and integrity.

Blessings galore, all.

Considering that the musical scale runs from A to G#, what the fresh h*ll...erm, would you please be so kind as to enlighten me as to what notes an H minor chord contains?

I think the 'troll hunters' are a bit quick to jump on new people too.

Agreed!

VK/RKBA ALERT...oh, never mind.

Only silly new people who can't articulate a coherent thought.

AAAhh!; You left out Ab! };^{)~

"H Minor"; Isn't that in the Cachophonic Modality?

Do you prefer the Aeolian or the Dorian mode? I'm rather fond of the Paleolithic, myself. (Banging rocks together...)
