" Lets do it at home. Quit buying foreign oil. "

Juan, are you listening?

Frankly, I’m not interested in “stories” that take me to a video that makes me watch a commercial before viewing. If you have a link to a TRANSCRIPT, post that instead.

So in other words, folk’s pensions and retirement funds are being held hostage by terrorist funding Saudi Arabian Islamofascists and their carpet bagging Bidness partners.

Tyranny of the appetite.

How do I buy shares of Russel Trust?

“The Texas oil man discusses the oil-futures market investigation, Yahoo, the presidential election and his wind investments.”

Perhaps a minor point, but not to T. Boone for sure, he is actually an Okie. In fact, I believe that I heard on the news the other day that he gave $100M to his beloved Okie State.

Btw, while T. Boone is certainly an expert of the oil industry, one should be cautious of taking his comments too seriously as the wily old dude has been guilty of “talking up or down” whatever endeavor he may be pursuing at the time...

I agree with you--why would a person sit through a commercial, then complain because they sat through a commercial?

Yea, well some geniuses have failed to realize that nothing is free... Free Republic costs and for those of us who have fought for Freedom...”Freedom is not free!”

But as I said earlier, rudeness has become the norm on FR. Instead of thanking me and others for posting articles; we are more likely to get insults!

Happy Fathers Day !

I know what you mean. There is one guy here I've noticed who seems to enjoy treating his fellow Freepers as if they were from DU or KOS. I figured if he wants to insult someone he should try it with them and not us. He probably doesn't have the guts.

Well, we're down to two people now... and I've never voted in a presidential race for a Democrat. So sure, I'm on board with John McCain.

Seems like as good a reason as any to support McCain.

"The rudeness of you clowns never fails to amaze me."

IMNSHO, the "rudeness" was on your part. This site is about posting articles, and commenting thereon, not videos. Why should I have to take the time to watch a five minute video, when I can read the transcript in one minute and be better informed. The topic might actually be of interest, but "doing video" wastes my time, which I already have too little of.

Go find your own reports then. Your “weak kneed” dependence on others to do things for you, followed by your criticism of how they do it betrays a weakness of character more suited to a Democrat website. We ruck up around here.

Sorry, idiots, but I feel about people who post videos as the “main article” just like I feel about people who post vanities-—they detract from the site.

You sure seem to be spending your “precious time” in a non-productive way, if ya ask me. Yeah, before you insult me back, I know, you didn’t ask me.

In case you haven't noticed, threads are about expressing OPINIONS. I find posting videos offensive. That's an OPINION. Live with it.

Look back upthread. I wasn't the one who started the name-calling. I expressed an opinion about a preference for text postings over videos, and "kellynla" got into high dudgeon because I "dared" to say so.

I happen to think that "pure video" postings impede the functioning of the site, and that text postings are far better. Your opinion may differ, but you're entitled to it---and are certainly free to comment to that end on this forum---and so am I.

I will agree with you. I can get through dozens of transcripts in the time of many videos.

Skim through it to find the relative sections, compare them for consistencies and move on to the next.

I don't like to come here to watch “TV”.

Nope. For anybody who can read with any speed, being forced to slow down to the speed of a video is almost painful. See post 30 for another view.
