Jim Robinson Has Given Us Permission to start a Digg page

Posted on 10/28/2008 1:18:41 PM PDT by GodGunsGuts

For the Mods re: Digg campaign:

Via Freepmail: "Go for it! Thanks, Jim"

This page will be kept at the top of "Breaking News"

What we want to do is either post new Digg articles/videos, or identify already existing Digg articles/videos, that tell the REAL STORY of Barack "the socialist revolutionary" Obama. Let's come up with a TOP 5 articles and a TOP 5 videos list and use FReeper power to Digg them to the top so that non-FReepers too become aware of the most dangerous presidential candidate in our nation's history!

Please place all Digg suggestions in the threads. DO NOT PROVIDE LINKS TO NON DIGG ARTICLES AND VIDEOS. IF YOU WANT YOUR ARICLE OR VIDEO TO BE CONSIDERED, PUT IT ON DIGG FIRST AND THEN PROVIDE THE LINK.

Once the top five of each has been identified, let's all sign up over at Digg and DIGG THESE LINKS TO THE TOP!!! Then FReepmail, email, and round up people from every conservative forum you can think of and encourage them to do the same!

Please place your Digg suggestions below. Once we have settled on the initial five articles and five videos, a new post with the links will appear at the top of "Breaking News" and will be kept there!!! Remember, taken together, these links need to tell a story.

So let's get off our rear-ends, bypass the MSM, and get the vote out people!!!

I don’t think he intended a stone cold prediction.

On the other hand, I think he was uncannily prescient. There are no pneumatic tubes, no ‘memory hole.’ But if the powers that be want to edit recent history, all they need to do now is change the website. Paragraphs disappear, stories disappear, photos are altered virtually untraceably, etc.

Still, points taken.

He never thought that the same mass media that was used to oppress the masses could be used against Gubmint control...he had no way of knowing that 60 years later there would be internet, cable, satellite or talk radio.

So far...

Thanks for joining, Joya.

The DIGGIT BUTTON, link has been on every ATS thread header for many months. Hadn't bothered to use it or pay much attention to it. Now, I see it can be a powerful way to spread the word..

Jim, Why couldn't it be on every FR thread? Would be an easy way to get our message to a broader audience--AS WELL AS get FR more publicity generally! It could make a significant difference in this critical election in some precincts and crucial States.

Here's an example of an ATS thread with it. It's in the upper right (almost) corner like on this thread--on [almost] every ATS thread.

HERE: http://www.abovetopsecret.com/forum/thread406108/pg1

I have to correct one statement above. I found a thread it was not on. I don't know what the difference is. It seems to be on most threads at ATS.

Well, as for helping out....one way (and it may be what they are suggesting here)...As you move around the Net...when you find interesting articles (especially ob blogs) many will have the DIGG THIS button on the page the article is on...

A sort of auto-submit to Digg to draw attention to it. If others like the article too, they also...”digg” the article...

Can you dig it?
LOL

You may even encounter someone paying a compliment when another has found and shared a good article saying, “Nice digg”...

The more diggs an article gets, the more prominently it’s displayed on the site and on search engines...

One could say to Freep something and to Digg something are one and the same thing...

So we want to get active Freeping (Digging) article on Digg because of the mixed crowd over there...:)

The things we know how to do are simple ..

The things we do not know how to do are complicated and/or confusing.

I checked it out for about 3 minutes: did not understand the set-up all that much.

Actually reminded me of the ‘My Space’ set up.

Once again when we know how to do something , it is simple ... Ipod, cell phones, the coming digital TV box, etc. ... always the new ones are more complicated to use than the one before it.

THIS SOUNDS LIKE A GOOD IDEA that I predict will not work.

A bit like doing the same thing at the democratic underground. I am motivated but do not see this working.

Sorry to make a snap judgment; but it is my view now.

Thanks. I will keep an eye out for DIGG THIS buttons, but I don’t surf blog sites so I’ll most likely have to see someone commenting on it here at FR to learn about a particular article. Maybe I’ll pop over to the digg site once in a while to look around.

Yup...every little bit helps...

I believe “we” need to become more active on things like this...

We know the Lefties raise their children from day one to be activists...and Obama being a nominee for Prez and MCCain of the Repub ticket shows, if nothing else...that we are losing the war of ideas badly.

As with fight fire with fire, perhaps we need to fight activism with activism?

Just do not use Alferd Packer. That's mine.

Best of luck with this. I had some months ago decided to stop visiting Digg, despite the fact that I think it's an amazing web site. It has so many features that I'd like to see FR have, and the software there scales to many more users. However, I decided to stop visiting when 7 of the top ten articles on Digg were anti-McCain/Palin stories. The leftist bias there and the core feature of the site - the ability to vote up/down articles and comments - makes it virtually impossible for a non-leftist to make a point.

Anyway, I've Dugg a few of the Digg stories from here, but if it doesn't work, it's going back on my boycott list.

Right now a lot of the articles I see popping up on my screen come through Huffington Post. It will be interesting to see if something pops up as Free Republic... as long as it doesn’t draw kooks here....

** Please explain digg to us non-techs. ** Here, here!

- - - - - - - -

When I first saw the title, the first thing I thought of was ...

http://www.stlyrics.com/lyrics/anchorman/grazinginthegrass.htm

It sure is mellow grazin' in the grass
(Grazin' in the grass is a gas, baby, can you dig it)
What a trip just watchin' as the world goes past
(Grazin' in the grass is a gas, baby, can you dig it)
There are so many good things to see
While grazin' in the grass
(Grazin' in the grass is a gas, baby, can you dig it)
Flowers with colours for takin'
Everything outta sight in the grass
(Grazin' in the grass is a gas, baby, can you dig it)
The sun beaming down between the leaves
(Grazin' in the grass is a gas, baby, can you dig it)
And the bir-ir-ir-irds dartin' in and out of the trees
(Grazin' in the grass is a gas, baby, can you dig it)

Everything here is so clear, you can see it
And everything here is so real, you can feel it
And it's real, so real, so real, so real, so real, so real
Can you dig it
Whooo-oooh

I can dig it, he can dig it
She can dig it, we can dig it
They can dig it, you can dig it
Oh, let's dig it
Can you dig it, baby
I can dig it, he can dig it
She can dig it, we can dig it
They can dig it, you can dig it
Oh, let's dig it
Can you dig it, baby

The sun beaming down between the leaves
(Grazin' in the grass is a gas, baby, can you dig it)
And the bir-ir-ir-irds dartin' in and out of the trees
(Grazin' in the grass is a gas, baby, can you dig it)
Everything here is so clear, you can see it
And everything here is so real, you can feel it
And it's real, so real, so real, so real, so real, so real
Can you dig it
Whooo-oooh, yeah
I can dig it, he can dig it
She can dig it, we can dig it
They can dig it, you can dig it
Oh, let's dig it
Can you dig it, baby
I can dig it, he can dig it
She can dig it, we can dig it
They can dig it, you can dig it
Oh, let's dig it
Can you dig it, baby

I can dig it, he can dig it
She can dig it, we can dig it
They can dig it, you can dig it
Oh, let's dig it
Can you dig it, baby

I can dig it, he can dig it
(Grazin' in the grass is a gas, baby, can you dig it)
She can dig it, we can dig it
They can dig it, you can dig it
(Grazin' in the grass is a gas, baby, can you dig it)
Oh, let's dig it....

These days we continually lie to ourselves saying that nothing is wrong when we all know better. Christ is forbidden in our workplaces, our government buildings, our businesses and our children’s schools.

Jesus and His disciples did not warn us what will occur if they persecute us; they told us how we must hold fast when they persecute us. The persecution of Christ's followers is Scripturally a foregone conclusion.

In factm everyone who wants to live a godly life in Christ Jesus will be persecuted, while evil men and imposters will go from bad to worse, deceiving and being deceived ... 2Tim: 3,12

If the world hates you, keep in mind that it hated me first ... If they persecuted me, they will persecute you also ... They will treat you this way because of my name, for they do not know the One who sent me ... John 15: 18,20,21

Blessed are you when people insult you, persecute you and falsely say all kinds of evil against you because of me. Rejoice and be glad, because great is your reward in heaven, for in the same way they persecuted the prophets who were before you ... Matthew 5: 11

American Christians, as His 'modern day disciples', can expect no better treatment from unbelievers than The Twelve received almost two thousand years ago. Nor will the deceivers be any more kind than they were back then.

And that small remnant that remains true to Him, not falling prey to the world's wickedness, will suffer increased earthly persecusions, even death, which is why the knowledge that there is a glory that lies beyond this pain is of such eternal significance.

Thank you for the wonderful insights, B4Ranch!
