No.. We don't need it. :) PULEEZE, we really do NOT need it.
Nonsense. It's a smear, starting with the title. What is it about you witch-hunters that makes you feel obliged to destroy people? But I suppose that's what witch-hunting is all about, isn't it?
Pat Buchanan is not a Conservative. Conservatives do not team up with Marxists.
Politicians do though. Look at George Bush and Ted Kennedy over education. Or for that matter, your idol the big strong Zionist mass murderer with his unity government. Of course, his case is a little different. Is there even one one small-government party in Israel? Or are they all Marxists?
See you in the trenches.
I'll bump to that!
I'm still stuck on why you would 'out' Boucheau, and say, "bye-bye" to him. Here are the main themes from his last 8 replies (which are all that pop up):
The other 3 were a bump of agreement, a typo correction, and his post on this thread. I just don't see where he has shown himself unworthy of FR posting priviledges. He seems pretty darn conservative to me. I don't want FR to only include those who want to earn the GOP version of Clintonian knee-pads. I'd rather have representatives who are willing, able, and happy to have their performance critiqued so that they can do their jobs as well (and as Constitutionally) as possible. Your point, that much has changed (and Bush has been just a bit distracted!) since 9-11 is well-taken... and the 2002 elections are going to be CRITICAL... but that still won't buy the GOP my loyalty. When the get a spine, when they reverse the progressive tax system, when they dump at least ONE of the unConstitutional roles of the Federal gov't (Dept of Education, please!!), etc, etc, etc, THEN they will have my undying support... and occasional questioning glare. ;^)
LOL. Now that you've been hoisted by your own petard for starting a flame war, it is "inappropriate." It is inappropriate to scream that Buchanan is an anti-Semite but that didn't stop you now did it?
I won't "ping" or reply to you anymore, thanks.
There are alot of writers who's "commie swill" gets posted here including Horrowitz. It's obviously not the "commie swill" that bothers you.
I can understand that some things have gotten posted because so many relevant topics were being overposted and sometimes it's just a slow news day and I think some folks just want to liven things up a bit.
Personally, I have found some of the DU posts to be hilarious and they are generally posted under humor. I agreee that those people over there are a bunch of pathetic squealing RATS with nothing of substance to say, but they take themselves so seriously that they are entertaining. But, I understand the other side of it too.
I've brought quite a lot of FReepers onboard too because I think it is the best site going for conservatives. I don't know what I'd do without it. It is place where we can stay in touch with each other as Americans and I think that makes us stronger. We may not always agree with Jim, but we all owe him respect and a debt of gratitude.
Yes he is. So is Buchanan.
THATS who my frikkin reply was to, numnutz.
I hope your comments in 229 was an attempt at humor, but I don't think it was because you flamed others on this thread for doing the same thing I did.
What I did and others who included your name in their reply was to draw your attention to the comments. It is *usually* a compliment (yes, I was complimenting you) when someone does that.
Now relax. And I will never reply or invite your comments, no matter how much I enjoy of agree with them, again.
Guilty on a few double posts here.
Agree with your guidelines!
Way too many Vanities--What is you favorite-------..........--------?
Good advice! I'd like to cross-stitch that sentence on a pillow, have a bumper sticker made of it, and have it placed on a T-shirt! :-)
Do NOT use "My Title" titles. This will also help to reduce the number of duplicates.
Oops!, I'll bet thats me he's talking to. Sorry about that Jim.
Exactly. Sometimes we conservatives can be our own worst enemies.
We've all noticed how Democrats stick together about the same way that Arabs/Muslims do. You never hear any of them trashing their own. Why can't we do the same?
One doesn't have to be a republican to be a conservative icon.
I don't think Ted Kennedy will be joining Bush's reelection campaign anytime soon, as Fulani did with Buchanan's bid.
Three cheers and a BUMP! I'm not a Republican Party Loyalist, and I don't "blindly" follow anyone like some do. I'll criticize when and where necessary, but I insist on keeping the debate intellectually honest. Frankly, I've found myself on the opposite side of people here whom I've known and respected for several years, more often than I'd like. Still, I won't bend or alter my position for political expedience, as some here would have me/us do. In my sometimes not-so-humble opinion, it's all the things that have been done in the name of "political expedience" that have gotten us to where we're at today.
Speaking for myself only, my priorities for the next year would have to include continuing to root out terrorists and "eliminate" them when found; protect the tax cuts that got passed last year and not let the Democrats "freeze" or alter them in any way; Immigration Reform & Securing our borders (which does NOT include amnesty for anyone!); Education Reform that INCLUDES vouchers to families to give them their tax dollars back to send their children to a school of THEIR choice - not the Governments; A commitment to providing for the national defense and increasing funds to the Military to ensure our borders are protected; A re-vamp/re-visit of our CIA & FBI policies regarding information gathering on foreign terrorist groups (get rid of the Toricelli Policy!) and; Legislation that protects the unborn, welcomes them into life, and severely restricts abortion and eliminates ALL federal funding for abortion not only here in the U.S. but in foreign aid to other countries as well.
And that's just for starters. :)
I think it is a good thing to discuss these issues. This is a fairly high profile forum and is doubtless viewed by people in positions of influence who use it and others to get a feel for how the people really think and in that regard I think we should be able to discuss these issues freely. I support President Bush and our armed forces 100% in the war effort, but I am less in agreement with some of his other policies as well. That is normal. We are not always going to agree with any president.
Oh geez!!! I'm terribly sorry! Forgive me, I didn't have my morning coffee yet, looking back I was a bit grumpy. Please accept my apology.
I thought you might have needed a coffee fix :)
The only one who understands my posts is Eleanor Roosevelt, anyhow. I just asked.
More like an IV Drip. Boucheau, apologies to you as well. Gee, I was very abrasive this morning.
That settles it, no more FR until after cup o' java #4 in the morning.
Your statement and your quoted article offer no documented proof. Protubering government budgets are a serious matter. Your statement here and your referenced post accomplish no constructive criticism on the growth of government.
I notice you said nothing about blatant islamo-nazi propaganda. I would like to see these posters banned as well.
1. He is trying to guide the forum back to a true political activist purpose and get away from the internal squabbling. (it is true that we eat our own more-so than the dems)
2. He is getting the forum focused on the upcomming elections. There is so much at stake. The supreme court, the senate and the house. As well as governorships. This is our true purpose.
I have heard that there will be a "chat" environment for those who want to argue the pros and cons of leadership decisions and this is fine. But remember that the world is watching this forum now to get a feel for what the conservatives are up to. If all they see is bitter conflict then they know exactly what buttons to push to get us off message. This is what is happening now.IMHO.
Like that's ever going to be reality again. Call me a cynic, but I've seen little evidence of the government relinquishing any power once it's gotten hold of it. I am in agreement with you, however.
All this went bye,bye after 911. We will deficit spend until we rid the world of these scum. The democrats have hijacked the deficit issue to make political hay. They will soon jump on the talk circuits and say exactly what you are saying to win more seats in the congress. Dash has started the ball rolling! Can't you see this or are you really a democrap or RINO?
You are on the wrong side on this issue.
Most of them are humorous in only a very pathetic, "Look-at-me-I'm-a-real-loser" sort of way.
Well I confess to liking DU. Kinda' like the Springer Show. So bad that it is good. But I wonder where you draw the line on what being a "conservative" is?
I support the death penalty. I think able-bodied people on welfare ought to have to work. I think the Civil Rights movement has degenerated into a joke. I can't stand Clinton, Hillary, Feingold, Maxine Waters, Sheila Jackson Lee, Albright. I barf on Janet Reno. I do not like most political correctness. I think the role of gov't needs to be closely restricted. I think gov't is far too big and has far too much power. I hate NBC, CBS, CNN, Dan Rather etc. I think the media has a liberal bias. I like O'Reilly, FOX, etc. I am for a strong military. I think NOW is crap.
BUT---I think capitalism ought to be regulated. I believe in livable wages, increased minimum wages, unions (even though they have a bad side). I hate the bankruptcy reform bill. I think tort-reform is an abomination. I think big business has about the same potential to ruin people's lives as big gov't. I think Johnny Jihad is being rail-roaded. I have a very low opinion of Ashcroft, thus far. I think "liberal" judges protect constitutional rights more often than "strict constructionist" judges. I do not worship businessmen. I even left the GOP and became a democrat.
So am I still a "conservative"? I think so. parsy.
What he was saying, is that it is a waste of bandwidth, and he thought some democrats do this on purpose, I guess. I guess it costs money, is what he was trying to say.
You got this right. Too many folks here think that the terms Republican and Conservative are interchangeable. In fact, not all Republicans are Conservative, and not all Conservatives are Republican.
God Bless you for your constant attention to the postings, and for the site in the first place, it is literally, the only place I go on the internet (other than aviation related sites).
Keep the Faith for Freedom
MAY GOD BLESS AND PROTECT THIS HONORABLE REPUBLIC
With so many liberals today masquerading as conservatives in the GOP I don't see how not taking these individuals to task for their leftward leaning ideology does anything other than provide these liberals with political cover. Anyone astutely following the political scene for a number of years has undoubtedly observed the GOP's drift towards socialism. Being a Republican in these times can mean almost anything.
Hoo boy. Welcome to my list.
