Posted on 08/16/2013 5:35:31 PM PDT by Baynative
U.S. Sen. Dick Durbin is a statist and a bully. The Senator, known for comparing U.S. soldiers to Nazis, recently used his senatorial letterhead to demand answers from us here at the Freedom Foundation. Sen. Durbin wants to know whether the Freedom Foundation is, or ever has been, a member of the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC).

ALEC is an organization made up of legislators, other organizations, and businesses that believe in fiscal conservatism, free markets, and constitutional federalism. Its meetings are about brainstorming and debating policy ideas, sharing information, and sometimes developing model legislation that legislators might choose to introduce in their own states. In short, ALEC allows people to talk about ideas
mostly conservative people, that is, and mostly conservative ideas.
For everyone on this board and across the nation and especially our Washington band of Freepers I am posting this to remind you how precious freedom is and how hard liberals are working around the clock to take it away from us.
Durbin's letter: Page 1
and Page 2
which means they’re a danger to the progressive agenda and therefore an enemy of the state
that’s how it works with progressives / liberals / commies / marxists / fascists
know you enemy and understand their tactics or you will have no hope of defeating them
In answer to your questions, I offer you only the last words broadcast by the Lithuanian free radio station on January 13, 1991, as Soviet troops were barging through their doors.
"It is possible that [the Soviet government] can break us with force
or close our mouths, but no one will make us renouce freedom
I am so thankful to see that someone has finally responded to this tyrant.
I love it!
“Dear sen. Turbin.......Nuts!”
Durbin is a fricking constitution-hating, liberty-hating, America-hating communist!!
Wish we could burn him in effigy like the libtards do, but we’d be arrested for “threatening” him.
“Sen. Durbin wants to know whether the Freedom Foundation is, or ever has been, a member of the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC).”
I have never heard of ALEC, but if Sen. Turban is against it, it has to have something going for it.
Excellent, excellent response letter. Loved it. Put this letter in the congressional record and shove it Senator Turbin.
Looks ok to me.

Great response to Comrade Senator Durbin from the freedom Foundation:
No one will make us renounce freedom
And I’ll add mine to the commie lover:
You want my freedom, come and take it!
Wish we could burn him in effigy like the libtards do, but wed be arrested for threatening him.
Treat him as he is, get a thousand clowns together all wearing Durbin masks. Maybe flash mobs of clowns popping up all over the country.
Well, I live in Illinois, I'd be happy to burn Dick(head) Durbin in effigy ... problem is, I don't know how to make a likeness of Dick(head) Durbin. If someone could make one up for me, I'd be happy to burn Durbin in effigy at a busy intersection to see if I'll get arrested.
Last I looked, walking on the flag, urinating on the flag, and oh yeah -- burning politicians in effigy is FIRST AMENDMENT FREE SPEECH, and I'm always happy to practice that!
Sounds good to me!
Durbs hasn’t heard of this “First Amendment” thing as he’s too busy reading his little book of maoisms.
FUDD!! COMMIE TRAITOR!!
That is one hell of a smack down on Durbin. Glad to see it, thanks.
Durbin wanted to know if a conservative group was a member of another conservative group. Why the hell not?
Freepers, you are conservatives, would you please tell Durbin if you are a member of the conservative group known as Free Republic? Will you be honest and admit to the fact you are a member of Free Republic? Do you give any money to keep Free Republic on the internet? My God, will you admit to being a monthly donor? Or a dollar a day donor? A donor occasionally?
IF YOU HAVE NOT DONATED IN THE PRESENT FREEPATHON, PLEASE RUIN DURBIN'S LIFE AND MAKE A DONATION.
I WISH WE COULD ALL GO TO WASHIINGTON AND BE THERE WHEN DURBIN'S COMMITTEE TRIES TO DO AWAY WITH SELF DEFENSE. HE WOULD TAKE YOUR GUN RIGHT NOW IF HE COULD. A POX ON DURBIN AND EVERYONE LIKE HIM (yes, I am yelling).
I have heard of ALEC and did not know its purpose or why leftists hated it enough to pressure companies to distance themselves from it. Wow. Now I understand. Way to go FF!
Dick Durbin should be criminally investigated for using the power of the government to inquire into the use of the civil right of free speech and association.
Thank you for the help, Laz.
They are far too long winded. The proper response to Durbin is as follows;
Dear Senator Durbin,
Kiss our collective asses.
And as long as there are plenty of AR-15s and other rifles, the govt will fear the people and there will be liberty.
Thanks for the ping, Baynative!
SOmebody should ask Dustbin if he is or ever was a member of the COmmunist Party USA...
Oh, wait... he’s a Democrat. Same thing. Never mind.
Imagine my surprise to find an article comparing King David and Bill Clinton! The article says that David was a risk-taker, occasionally overzealous with the opposite sex - '... a man-god who, despite his flaws, became a great leader of his people.' There was a picture of Clinton scowling to reinforce the silly comparison.
As I have repeatedly pointed out recently, this is evidence of Stalinism insidiously pervading our whole society [to wit lately that hapless rodeo clown.] The American Stalinists have done to Egypt just what they hope to do to America.

Write a letter-to-the-editor to this mag in your own inimitable style and let us know if they print it.
Some things just scream for a pushback (or a slingshot)!
Oh Yeah! Done dat right after seein' da stoopid ting! This is not cuneiform script!]
Anyone who knows and loves the great narrative histories of the Bible will tremble for what David would actually do if confronted with blather like that. He did not respond moderately to people attempting flattery by slighting those to whom he owed honor. He did respond with kingly authority.
Amazing the turmoil a little dick can cause.
He’s always be one.
