VANITY: The "Truth" about JimRob and Free Republic according to BADJOE
LibertyPost.org | 10/10/03 | BADJOE (Slightly revised by JimRob)

Dear Free Republic Friends,

My old friend and brother-in-arms BADJOE has promised to warm the cockles of our hearts by publishing an expose (the truth about JimRob and Free Republic according to Joe) on the 18th of this month, which represents the one year anniversary of the date he last posted to FreeRepublic.com and started up with LibertyPost.org.

So, as I believe that only the truth can set you free, and based upon the stratergery of pre-emptive strike, I have a confession to make (before BADJOE makes it public):

I have poisoned the well.

By my sly innuendos behind the scenes.

By my intellectual ineptitude.

By not trusting those that brung me to the dance to bring me home.

By my biting every hand that fed me.

By my arrogance that causes me to think I did it all by myself.

By my stubborness not because of principle, but because of my lack of ability to see what is transpiring.

Evidenced by:

One would think that with half again as many Freepers. with a recovering economy, It would take a great deal less time to raise the necessary funds.

By this time in the June 2002 effort with a goal of $70,000 we had raised $73,000. Not because of who did the fundraising, but because the sense of purpose, of family, of comaraderie, was still present.

BADJOE rang the warning bell, but none heard.

Conclusion:

It is a sad day.

For what was once a great hope, a means of bringing together those who are willing to pay dearly in blood, sweat, and money to save this country, we all love, has been reduced to an asterisk.

So sayeth BADJOE as he promises to publish all this and much more on the 18th. He's been feverishly working on this "project" for one full year. In addition to the "truth about JimRob" BADJOE intends to further betray our trust placed in him by revealing the names of our moderators. And who knows what else?

I can hardly wait.

Is it the 18th yet? Tick, tock.

'Tis a sad day indeed.

I fall to my knees and humbly beg forgiveness for all my past misdeeds. God will surely punish me for my sins.

Boy you sound scared. The thing is, this 'expose' will probably gain you attention (and support), assuming anyone actually bothers to read it. It would be ashame if badjoe spend a year of his life on a project and no one reads it.

It seemed for a long time coming that BadJoe was a modern day Absalom.

You have a good group surrounding you now. You started FR without him, it will continue without him. Let them have their lies, you have FR.

Now, what should you do to atone for your sins? I think you should be forced to read "The Collected Wisdom of Lew Rockwell, Jr.". Your sentence should be completed in time for afternoon tea.

Wow! What if they turn out to be Tom Daschle and Hillary Clinton? Some of us might not be able to post again for hours because of psychological shock.

(It's rally just a behind the scenes conspiracy to sex-up the current fundraising drive that's stuck in the doldrums. BADJOE was the best fundraiser we ever had. Raised something over $700,000 over a three year period or so. Connect the dots.)

Jim: You assume people care about . . who ever this is, and we just do not.

You've done a fantastic job running what is an asset to the consevative movement in the United States, and deserve congradulations.

Didn't they come into a verbal or written agreement re: privacy about their knowledge of FR behind the scenes when they were onboard working with you? I would think it would be very easy to sue for breaking that agreement, no matter where they go. For example, Big Idea Productions just got sued for breaking a verbal agreement for promotional work and are now in bankruptcy. Not quite the same, but regarding breaking agreements, it looks like you could win.

But they probably aren't worth it. Man, those guys at that site are so bitter.

..... by publishing an expose (the truth about JimRob and Free Republic according to Joe) on the 18th of this month,

Oh, boy...I can't wait....do you know if executive summaries will be available?

I wonder if Katie Couric will do him! Did I say that?

I know you're only kidding but I think you may have inadvertently exposed a disconcerting amount of pure evil only succumbed to by the likes of Stalin or Hitler. You may want to get that checked out. ;^)

A good group of people on LP are just a bunch of bitter ex-FReepers who get bitch and moan about being banned all day.

Posters are a mixed bag at both sites. There are good posters at both LP and FR.
