Way too many vanity threads lately. And way too much trash being posted. Please try to stay on topic (politics). Also, please do a search on a significant word from the title of your article before posting. This will reduce the number of duplicates. And, along these same lines, please use the original titles on your article posts. Do NOT edit the titles. Do NOT use "My Title" titles. This will also help to reduce the number of duplicates.
And, whatever else you do, please DO NOT post from DEMOCRATS UNDERGROUND (or any other such trashy un-American socialist hangout). Free Republic was intended to be a socialist free zone. We've gone to a heck of a lot of trouble to make it that way. Why in the world would you think we would be interested in having their trash posted here?
And QUIT trashing each other. You know who you are. Knock it off! Way too many flamewars and feuds going on. And, while I'm thinking about it, QUIT trashing our conservative candidates. If you want to criticize someone's position on some policy, have at it. But do not trash or smear the man. That would include Browne, Buchanan, Bush, Keyes, et al, or whomever else may be your favorite trashee (examples listed in alphabetical sequence). The idea is to get more conservatives elected, not to trash the ones you don't like. If you want to trash someone, make it a Democrat. Thank you.
And QUIT dredging up old communist propaganda to smear our conservatives. Sheesh! Whatever else you may think about our guys, they did not hijack airliners full of people and crash them into buildings. No, my friends, not even the dreaded CIA. Anyone who would believe (or even suspect) that crap is no FReeper. I've been pulling this crap whenever I see it and several people have been banned for continuing to post it. I do not want it on Free Republic. Any current FR poster who believes this leftist propaganda, please logoff immediately, send me your resignation via email, and I will delete your account.
Upon posting a thoughtfull reply, I often find myself being labeled a Bushie!
Hey y'all; I think some of us just got a spanking.
On a lighter note...I will be posting a vanity soon to see if any FReepers out here play harmonica, first position/cross harp...
Big bump to you Jim, keep up the good work and God Bless America...
I agree completely.
On far too many threads these days, there is no discussion and civil debate. After about 5 posts things have deteriorated to the level of an elementary school name-calling contest. And a lot of the language is on that level, too.
I have found myself complimenting people for simply having a rational discussion even if we were on opposite sides of an issue. That kind of discourse and exchange of ideas used to be the norm around here ..... now it seems to be the exception.
Don't include me in this...
...none of my posts are trash :-)
Pure gold...that's me.
I have a serious concern for the future of our republic, and the revival of
our constitution, especially the second amendment.
I have yet to post a vanity. When I do, please bury me head down, in the desert.
Does my esteemed colleague intend to promote
pro-establishment rhetoric? If that be the case,
allow me the courtesy of one minor difference with
the gentleman. The establishment can, I think we
can surely agree, take care of itself.
Could you give an example or two of anti-establishment
rhetoric which you think exceeded reasonable bounds.
Good. It's high time.
I thoroughly enjoy Mr. O exposing all the greed and sloppy management that's going on with some of these guy's.
It's shameful the way they have performed, they deserve to lose the public trust. And I bet this stuff has been going on unnoticed for decades, because they have no oversight.
Accountable to no one.
Ya'll Stay Safe !
