Skip to comments.Vanity post - can i do one?

Our current political conservative leadership is engaged in tactics to steer our "ship of state" through a course designed by the left. Steering a course adverse to the wind will not work, our ship has broached. Our engagement is fundamentally and historically on how we now need to fight, lead, participate and concentrate on "righting the ship." We need to pray for and support leaders who know the difference.
it’s 4:30 who will know
I hope you didn’t spend a whole lot of time writing that. Looks like you excerpted.
The ship has sailed off the edge of the map. My advice, stand close to the life boats.
Vanity is one thing; clarity is another. You have achieved one of these.
We can even Google it...
Vanity to Clarity in Houston TX
8.4 miles apparently, apprx 14 minutes travel time
I think I know what you mean, but could you elaborate a little on some of your points? What are a few examples that define this left ward course on which we have now set sail?
P.S. I hope you enjoy writing and sharing your ideas with Free Republic folks as much as I do. There are very few sites like this one; clear and simple layouts, ability to post if it seems interesting or relevant. The ability to learn how others see what you are seeing. Just imagine you’re sitting at a picnic table, on the grassy knoll, chatting with your friends after the big meal.
drinking and posting is never a good idea.
I think the answer is “Go to Bed, Go Directly To Bed, Do not Pass Drudgereport....”
insomniacs sheesh... er..
I should probably go to sleep too

s noted and there is a difference and i did spend time on it. our nation needs people who know the difference.
Yes, a short post at 4:30AM has solved that. Now that the nation has been informed, what is next?
So we can!
A google for "Steering a course adverse to the wind will not work, our ship has broached." leads directly to this thread.
Google is oddly efficient at tracking FR.
That was indexed very fast. Wow.
Sometimes I find my own old posts with just a few words.
wow i might need to post my business interests
I do that from time to time. Find post, View Selection Source, paste HTML, edit, and repost. Even if it was years ago.
You could post a vanity, but they veer dangerously close to “undead thread” territory.
Beware as that leads to the darkside of the forum.
Once done, forever will it dominate your threads.
Maybe this thread was a poem. Something about a ship going to and fro ... Sort of like John Kerry’s Swift Boat searching for a mythical jungle monster in the Mekong Delta.
Good tip, thanks cynwoody. :)
If this thread is a poem perhaps we can analyze it as one. I graduated from Thomas More College in Merimack, New Hampshire and we had to take a course: On Poetry,” which was mandatory for all students. So let me take a stab at this one:
Our current political conservative leadership is engaged in tactics to steer our “ship of state” through a course designed by the left.:
Just like the chicken sitting on a red wheelbarrow.
Steering a course adverse to the wind will not work, our ship has broached.:
One must re-read the scholarly poem that begins with, “Row, row, row your boat gently down the stream, merrily ...”
Our engagement is fundamentally and historically on how we now need to fight, lead, participate and concentrate on “righting the ship.”:
Just as lightning bugs catch fire in the morning dew.
We need to pray for and support leaders who know the difference.:
Why ask why?
Hmmm. Who needs clarity, when a poem is as mysterious as this one.
Because. That's why.
Something more substantial needed.
"Bow shots fired, stern doors open. Awaiting the Captains orders!"
Or something like that. (Submariners help me out!)

Critique on the style: Awful. Short, undeveloped, ill-written. Continue to work on your writing skill, and learn that one single paragraph does not an editorial make.
Critique on the subject: Stellar. Accurate. Well done.
Net critique: This could have been a comment on any other thread, and it would have been a good one.
“our” ship has been broached, eh?
Broach: pierce (a cask) to draw liquor.
So he’s saying, someone’s draining the booze out of our ship?
“our ship has been broached, eh?
Broach: pierce (a cask) to draw liquor.
I’ll drink to that. This round’s on me...
