Jim Robinson Has Given Us Permission to start a Digg page

Posted on 10/28/2008 1:18:41 PM PDT by GodGunsGuts

For the Mods re: Digg campaign:

Via Freepmail: "Go for it! Thanks, Jim"

This page will be kept at the top of "Breaking News"

What we want to do is either post new Digg articles/videos, or identify already existing Digg articles/videos, that tell the REAL STORY of Barack "the socialist revolutionary" Obama. Let's come up with a TOP 5 articles and a TOP 5 videos list and use FReeper power to Digg them to the top so that non-FReepers too become aware of the most dangerous presidential candidate in our nation's history!

Please place all Digg suggestions in the threads. DO NOT PROVIDE LINKS TO NON DIGG ARTICLES AND VIDEOS. IF YOU WANT YOUR ARICLE OR VIDEO TO BE CONSIDERED, PUT IT ON DIGG FIRST AND THEN PROVIDE THE LINK.

Once the top five of each has been identified, let's all sign up over at Digg and DIGG THESE LINKS TO THE TOP!!! Then FReepmail, email, and round up people from every conservative forum you can think of and encourage them to do the same!

Please place your Digg suggestions below. Once we have settled on the initial five articles and five videos, a new post with the links will appear at the top of "Breaking News" and will be kept there!!! Remember, taken together, these links need to tell a story.

So let's get off our rear-ends, bypass the MSM, and get the vote out people!!!

BTW, i clicked bury on every item that seemed the least bit off the wall to me—which all huffington’s did and 99.9% of the Obama stuff and anti McCain/Palin stuff did.

I’m a 52 year old woman who doesn’t know what the heck digg is.

But thanks for the ping anyway.

“I dugg it. Now what happens? lol.”

LOL - well, hopefully enough people will dig it so that it makes it to the top of the pile. I think most people voting for Obama are just making what amounts to a “mad dash for the cash” (Obama’s welfare program). Maybe if they learn the truth they’ll vote for McCain.

Hey, every little bit counts. ;-)

Ah...slashdot is a geek site....

Digg is fun in that you can submit stories just like here...but they can be voted up or down like You Tube videos...

It’s a battleground site between conservatives and Leftards...

Not really any more “work” than here...

Slashdot has been around a long time....digg sorta mimicked slashdot and expanded upon it...

If there were an Internet Hall of Fame for websites they’d both be in there...shrug

IMHO, digging articles is pretty much the equivalent of FReeping polls.

It doesn't take anything away from Free Republic.

I think it helps the conservative cause in general, gives FR more visibility on the web, and could help increase membership here.

Respectfully, I wouldn't be afraid of digg.

rss....nowadays stands for really simple syndication...

Basically it’s an internet “standard” for sharing articles...when you subscribe to a “feed”, a RSS or Atom (2 different versions), with a “feed reader”...when that website posts an article, you receive the article immediately (or a blurb from it)...

Google has a free feed reader...and Yahoo...with which you can subscribe to feeds...

The effect is that the news is brought to you...rather than you going around the Net to get it....

That’s RSS feeds at it’s most basic...more advanced, you can display someone elses feed on your own website..(referred to as syndication) Very cool...

Twitter was cool in the beginning but has fallen into spam hell recently...see if they can get a handle on that in the future...:)

When the presidential choices are a socialist or a communist, I think we are sinking too fast to be saved. During the primaries, conservatives didn’t stand a chance. So as far as I’m concerned, I can’t see getting excited to elect a counterfeit president.

Sure Sarah would be nice but as VP she’ll have as much chance as a snowballs chance in hell of making any differences.

If I was a Secret Service agent when Obama walks in, I’d look him in the eye, saying “My life to save a Communist, NEVER!” toss my badge and sidearm on the chair and walk out. Let the Russians protect that bastard.

“I won’t click on wickapedia since it’s personal crap posted there.”...

Aye, there is some of that...

OTOH, wikipedia articles are the most scrutinized content on the planet...(translated: one must have some level of common sense when reading wikipedia articles...)

If someone posts “crap” you can bet it won’t be long before they care called on it and the content is debated. Each wiki article has it’s own discussion board...some of the battles can get very heated...The result is the “crap” is quickly corrected through arbitration.

It was never really intended as authoritative or definitive...but it can be a reliable source of information.

A dictionary or encyclopedia has to issue an new edition to make corrections and one *never* gets to read the arguments that lead to the content in the article....but we can see all that on wikipedia...

The article of Joseph McCarthy I found to be fair...even with the bickering going on behind the scenes on it’s discussion page.......:) LOL

i wonder will they take the taxes out before they roll it to a gra, or will they tax us when we retire, since all monies that go in are from pretaxed income.
they are calling what we get a tax break, when it is a deferment and why they want to roll over our 401ks. it is 80 billion a year they are losing from us in taxes (they dont want to wait until we retire to collect). bottom line, they want our taxes NOW.
right now if i were old enough to retire and took my money out i would have to pay 43-45 percent (under obama) that is nearly half already. sure hope they dont plan to double dip me!! i looked, aint even sure if there would be a death tax, but nothing surprises me any more. yeah FREAKING CRAZY to vote for them money grubbing, no good, charlatans!!

I believe God has raised up Palin and snookered the globalists in the doing so.

IF she gets in . . . it will be because enough Christians have been praying and fasting . . .

I believe God will work to install her as we pray to protect her and her family.

I don’t know how it will happen. I just believe it will happen.

I don’t know what kind of or degree of breather we will thereby have on the way to hell . . . but it will be a lot better than Obumma’s bullet train to hell.

Regardless, horrific times are ahead.

Having Obumma in charge would make them much more horrific much sooner.

I gathered the links and posted them in Breaking News. But for some reason the power that be changed their minds and pulled it from Breaking. Perhaps we could build this thing up by getting enough people to post Digg links with the keyword “Digg” in it, thus causing it to appear in the “Popular Key Words” section (assuming enough FReepers do it). What do you think???

Here’s the link that got pulled from Breaking:

Does this mean that when there’s an article posted on FR, there will be a button that says “DIGG This”? Will there be a way to see which articles are in the top 5 DIGG list when we come to FR? If we click on a DIGG button does it remove the bottom digg/thingie/article that we were suggesting to others?

That idea was scratched by the Mods. We need to create a place where FReepers can Digg, Buzz, etc, FR articles that have been posted on forums where the article can be voted into prominance. I think whenever possible, we should try to post articles on Digg, etc that loop back to FR when interested parties click on it. Take a look what I did here and you’ll see what I mean:

I believe Palin is there to remind us of what we have allowed to go to waste, our country, our national sovereignty, our standards of pride, morality, honor and the once high standards of our own self respect.

These days we continually lie to ourselves saying that nothing is wrong when we all know better. Christ is forbidden in our workplaces, our government buildings, our businesses and our children’s schools.

That single symptom right there should give everyone a swift kick in the butt that as a country we are failing. Yet we continue to deny it. We refuse to stand up and tell the activist judges that they should move to communist countries because America was founded on Christianity not the denial of Christ.

Oh well, I know that I’m weird for mentioning things like this when nobody seems to care about it.

Jim understands that you have to be educated in the Saul Alinsky school of “community organization” in order to reach the uwashed masses in the proletariat.

If not, than only Socialists will be talking to the sheeple.

That didn’t come out exactly right.

What I mean is that Osama and leftist radicals tried to make themselves “mainstream” back in the 60’s.

The pot smoking, hallucinogenic drug crowd at Woodstock all decided they would cut their hair, stop burning flags and acting like jackasses and instead go to law school and become lawyers, judges, news editors, journalists and politicians.

I’m not a conspiracy nut, but I would not fall over backwards in my chair if I found out that there was a secret society that put the Free Mason’s to shame designed to take over this country....all agreed to while they passed the joint around.
