Opus Time
Vanity Opus

Posted on 04/17/2012 4:47:30 PM PDT by Williams

Well it's been about 13 years forgot my initial sign in name, so pretty much from the beginning.

Never wanted to write a Free Republic Opus, love reading news stories here and commenting every day.

Would rather not go out in anger seems pointless.

Then today the owner of the site called me a RINO (I'm not), surrender monkey (not) and told me to write my opus and get out.

My sin was fighting with someone who suggested Obama losing in the latest poll is "bad news".

I could list all the insanity of what is going on here. I've tried to approach Jim Robinson in email to gently suggest the problems we are facing. It's clear from that he is not interested in discussing and resolving anything, which is a shame.

But what kind of man, American, conservative will I be if I worry more about losing my 12 year old screen name versus standing up to people who are espousing the advisability of reelecting Barack Hussein Obama, and yes if I fail to stand up to the owner of a site for calling me a liberal when I am a proud conservative?

What Jim Robinson is doing cannot work because first of all he is NOT attacking the posters who say it is best to reelect Obama. He's offended by anyone who says he is thereby supporting Obama. But he doesn't mind calling us names when we attack the pro Obamas.

OK folks, it's not going to work. You can't really oppose Obama's reelection if you may also oppose the republican's election.

Free Republic has become a house divided against itself and it cannot stand.

I'm a conservative I love my country, I have to wish away to the cornfield anyone who would assist in the reelection of Obama, from whatever misguided motivations.

I stand with Dick Cheney. The other day I had to fight with someone disparaging Cheney here. They were not criticized by the owner.

Jim Robinson owes me an apology. Not planning on getting one. The sad fact is I am not writing this because I'm offended. It's because I want to no longer assist here in the destruction of my country by those who will, to varying degrees, assist in Obama's reelection.

Six or seven liberals on the Supreme Court? Maybe atomic destruction down the pike after our disarmament. Israel destroyed. 2nd Amendment neutered. Obamacare used to deny people medical care based on age and political beliefs. Racial strife. A welfare socialist state. US attorneys going after republicans.

My wife is a cancer survivor who reasonably fears that in the future they will deny her care because she is a registered republican. And she's no RINO, she hates Obama and she won't read Free Republic stories anymore because of what is going on here.

We have a real country and real lives out here that go beyond Jim Robinson's ill advised name calling against sincere conservatives who dare to disagree with him.

So F anyone who calls me a RINO for standing with Dick Cheney and against Barack Obama. I hate RINO's and I despise misguided so called conservatives who do anything to reelect Obama.

13 years, but it's nothing when put to the wall on my beliefs against the left wing democrat party. I have too many mirrors to look in. The people here who are every day posting that it will be best to reelect Obama, should be thrown off. Instead, well...

It's over.

I assure you Marxism will weigh a lot heavier than a progressive capitalist.

In 2008, I was shooting and eating squirrels after the market crash to keep from going on the dole.

I have the skill-sets for either, but I don't want either. So I'm going to vote for a conservative. I'll get what I get. But I'm going to vote for what I want.

My Dad was born in the Fox Chase neighborhood in Philly (literally born in the house) in the late ‘20s. He routinely walked through the neighborhood with his Sears double-barrel shotgun in hand to go hunting where Jeans Hospital is now located. Nobody blinked. In fact, they smiled and waved.

Can you imagine that happening today?

When I was in NM, I mentioned on a thread something about passing two tribal boys on a dirt road, probably 8 and 10... brothers... they lowered their muzzles and I slowed down to keep from dusting them and to have a word with them (it's polite, there).

I asked them what they were doing, and they got excited. Granddad was going to pay them a quarter for each groundhog they shot. Grandad had horses, and didn't need the holes.

This was probably 2007 or so.

Anywhoo.. I posted that here on FR in a reply, and some folks freaked out about kids that young carrying rifles.

They followed the rules, behaved, and I wished 'em luck.

It still does happen in some places in America, but it's well off the paved roads.

The purpose of abortion is to kill defenseless, innocent young babies in the womb. And our government, thanks to abortion pushers like Myth Romney, slaughters millions of them every year. Romney for three decades of his adult life (according to his own boasts) preached that abortion should be safe and legal in America and later advocated that unconstitutional, murderous Roe v Wade JUDICIAL FIAT is settled law that should be preserved and sustained as such. He admitted loathing pro-life conservatives Reagan and Bush and denied them. There’s more, a LOT more, but the above is sufficient grounds for a pro-life conservative to not want Romney anywhere near the presidency.

A reading from the Book of ZOT!

Ever onward did I tread through the forest of Myth that had sprung up practically overnight. And low didith mine eyes discover that the diseased branches hung low and the roots did runnith deep; fur such was their insatiable hunger.

And as the moon cast it’s gray light across the spring sky did I encounter a dweller of that fell place. He who clamed to be a man of great wisdom who no power could do without. one who had traveled far and whose influence had the name of a good man. But now, he said, in this, the Time of Troubles, there was no chance for good men. No, spakith he, it was time for the faithful to follow a new path, and that the one trode by the Great Cat himself was sheer folly!

Brethren, since the Rainbow Bridge has spanned the sky, we have seen such false prophets. And before stood another. And so did the history of the fair realm repeat anew as the faithful gathered round - for his madness twas contagious!

“The end of the realm!” he proclaimed! “We have little choice!” “Would you willingly walk into destruction?”

And as the crowd grew ever larger, the false prophet grew ever bolder, giving no care for those whose ears are sharp, and tempers already strained through battle.

And lo didith the Great Cat himself emerge from cover, a might bit perturbed that his word seemed unfit to govern his realm and those who dwelled within.

And behind him didith come his eight legged steed, straining at the weight of the ZOT!9000 upon it’s mighty back.

Unfazed by the sight, the false prophet continued weaving tales false, even as the scent of fragrant ozone fill the air.

“I am a conservative!” shouted the false prophet, over and over between words directing the faithful into the land of Myth. It was as if it were some totem or ward he believed would deflect the lightning to come.

But too late didith yon trollkind realize that merest words bear no shield against the Holy Amperage. And so did he resort to another mystical yet powerless spells. Quickly he began to chant, as had many before him, how the presence of money could stay the hand upon the trigger of the ZOT!9000. And like all before him, he vanished in a misty red digital cloud of mist.

And as the cute and fuzzy cleaning crew descended to mop up the mess and set fire the the Fell Forest of Myth, the great cat did once again remind the faithful what it meant to dwell within the promised land.

But it seems of late that the Madness of Myth hath occluded their ears, for it seems that many of the faithful just do not seem to hear his plainly spoken word.

Is it some voodoo that they doo? Is it fear of the imaginary that drives this insanity? Or perhaps many more nuts have fallen from the ACORN tree than was originally surmised.

This we cannot know brethren. But know this. The great cat hath proclaimed his intentions and it is sheer folly to continue tweaking the mighty nose.

Book of ZOT!
Chapter 73, Verse 1-15; No Prophet from Stupidity

OK folks, it's not going to work. You can't really oppose Obama's reelection if you may also oppose the republican's election.

Yeah, we all saw how the GOP-E fell in behind the Tea Party candidates who primaried RINOs in 2010.

Not.

Seems to me the problem is with the GOP-E for being more willing to lose with a RINO than win with a conservative.

I answered a question in my Bible study booklet this week about who my hero was, and why I sought to emulate that person.

Without hesitation I wrote your name in the blank, and I wrote that it was your courage that made me want so much to be like you. Thank you for not giving up. I am praying for you!

So its the safe choice?

No, not true at all. Sometimes battles must be fought on multiple fronts, and sometimes one must take one's licks and regroup.

I'm still participating in my local Republic Party Executive Committee and working hard to get good people put into office. I'm also participating in Tea Party events.

However, the American people seem bent on self-destructing, and I'm not going to be in the middle of that explosion unless absolutely necessary. Besides, after the process is complete it will be like throwing up ... everything will suddenly feel better ... but only if you've survived the process.

Even if Romney (assuming he'll be the nominee) is correct only 10% of the time that'll be 10% vs 0%. Granted 10% isn't good...at all...I'll take it over 0%

You assume much about Romney that his public record does not support. I don't care what he says on the campaign trail. The man has a RECORD, and that record is decidedly LIBERAL.

You will not convince me to give my solemn vote to any LIBERAL, including Willard Romney. If you can't see that now is the time to fight back, then I don't know how to help you. A vote for Romney, is a vote to give up all pretense of being conservatives, or American patriots.

a true patriot sees the writing on the wall and acts accordingly... do you or do you not think that bamey and his minions are the greatest evil this country has ever seen, in every way imaginable...

Do you, or do you not see that voting for Romney is acquiescing to the very evil that you fear? Romney and Obama both work for the same masters. Choosing between them is no choice at all.

A true patriot sees this clearly, and will respond accordingly by resisting evil in any and every way they can - not by selling out their principles out of fear.

I believe Romney will get us there more slowly - which buys me just a little more time to better prepare.

Prepare for what? A trip to the re-education gulag?

If we're going to go to hell anyway, it's going to happen without my express consent. I see no upside in selling my soul to the devil, or throwing away my personal honor and integrity for any reason.

I say the better option is to reject the fraud, Romney, and tell the left to Bring It. It's about time we had this fight once and for all.

If you think Obama is a "liberal" you're delusional.

Oh, I agree wholeheartedly that Obama's a full-strength liberal, i.e., a Marxist. At the same time, I don't agree that Mitt is any better, just because he's a paler shade of the same thing.

I'm being given the choice between a left-liberal, and a left-liberal. I simply won't choose either.

Just some added comments.....

Romney’s track record has two disguishable and major earmarks:

1) he is an accomplished liar, and... 2) he campaigns Right and governs Left.

According to his own campaign staff, any promises will be etch-a-sketched into nothingness once he secures the nomination.

Both Romney and Obama are “Progressives” which is just yet another political camouflage term for Statist / Leftist / Socialist.

None should sign their name on either...they are one and the same.

By now, it ought to be abundantly clear to every thinking person, that the corruption and evil that has infested our government is far too deep and widespread to be rooted out by the civil means provided in our Constitution.

It's time we all began looking to the Declaration of Independence for answers.

Without arguing about what Romneycare specifically does, I want to make a more general comment.

Every state is required by law to provide abortion coverage under medicaid. Of the 50 states:
- 17 states use state funds to provide all or most medically necessary abortions. Of these, 13 are due to a court order, 4 did so voluntarily.
- 32 states provide abortions in cases of life endangerment, rape and incest. 2 add fetal impairment, 3 add “grave, long-lasting damage to the woman’s physical health”
- 1 state provides abortions only in cases of life endangerment

So every governor of every state in the union, if he has signed a budget law, has approved the murder of innocent children. We are not allowed to discuss whether Romneycare is particularly worse in this regard than other state laws (I think we probably could, but someone would claim it was “defending Romney”, and I don’t want to go there). I think the existance of Romneycare itself created a more serious problem, but only in degree, not in substance (same problem, just more of it, so I don’t think it makes one evil and one “not evil”).

On the “gay” issue, I think measured by the standard you suggest we would have a more serious problem with people otherwise considered good conservatives. Without getting into an argument over it, I will say that there is SOME evidence that Sarah Palin is not as strict on the issue of homosexuality as some suggest is necessary (there was some dust-up about that, I have decided that until she makes a direct pronouncement I will not take sides on what her position is). Clearly Dick Cheney supports gay agenda items I find abhorent, but I don’t think that makes him “evil”. But that’s not an argument against your label, just a note that I think your argument makes more people “evil” than one might imagine.

I think we hit similar problems with other issues taken singly — we will find otherwise acceptable conservatives who were on the wrong side of the eco issue, or of the financial mess, or other issues — and this includes people who did more than just state a position, but who actually voted for things that you cite as causing evil outcomes. Again, maybe they ARE all evil — I’m not arguing whether you are right or wrong on that point, only noting that the list of “evil” people would be rather larger than the one man you mention, and would cover people we have supported at Free Republic at times in the past and present.

It could be that the measure is to take all the individual things together, and by preponderance of wrong choices one becomes “evil”. I would argue that this would be a “degree” of evil, rather than crossing a dividing line between “good” and “evil”, but I would understand the opposing argument.

Before you judge Romney's record you must first be familiar with Massachusetts politics.I'm old enough to remember when there were only three stations on TV and I've lived here *all my life*.Have you ever even *been* to Massachusetts,let alone ever lived here?

And no,Romney's not my favorite Republican.He's not even my *third* favorite.But he's WORLDS better than Osama Obama ever dreamed of being.

As long as Obama continues un-opposed by congress in by-passing the Constitution, other than lip-sevice, I cannot see what options are possible. I have grave doubts there would be enough Americans who would get behind a movement... America's face isn't exactly the face of America anymore. Convince me otherwise...please.

I have believed this Primary and the General would reveal the face of America for what I hoped it to be....it's currently showing otherwise....and the ignorance of many is astounding. Not to mention the Tea Party swaying in the breeze and or supporting Romney now.

It's a mess and then some.

He was pretty obvious. Both the far left, and faux conservatives want Romney. I will continue to do everything in my power to see that he goes home with his tail between his legs in November, or before. And that the GOP-E cries like a whipped dog.

I hate liberals. Even with an R beside their name.

Oh, I know Harvey. Good movie but I haven't seen it in decades. As someone else said; it gets this way every election season. As an '04 minted FReeper you truly did miss some of the most contentious flame wars in FR history. But there have been some darned good ones since then and purges as well. I guess you just didn't participate which might speak very well of you. Personally I used to be a wayyyy bigger a-hole than I am now. I've toned it down a lot partly because I wanted to and partly because the mods gave me several subtle indications that it wasn't appreciated.

Notice how only one person, other than the OP, has been zotted here? He decided that his "freedom of expression" meant he ought to be able to be as disrespectful of everybody, including the site owner and his rules, as he felt like. And that he could rub that fact in our noses. Kind of like how drunk kids act with cops all the while bellowing about "freedom of speech." That works good too. lol

Not a problem. If my ballot has a choice I will vote for him or her. Doesn’t even have to be a “real” conservative. As long as they’re not a far-left evil SOB that will do. Then there is the rest of the ballot which I wouldn’t miss voting on for the world. The state and county are going to have tax proposals (they always do) and I’m going to vote them all down whatever they are.

I feel the same way. I’m beyond thinking about sending a message to the GOPe though. One more cycle well underway and they still don’t get it. I just won’t vote for trash like Romney.

retread troll zot.

Aha! That explains a lot. Definitely had a disruptor flavor to it.

And what does your pathetic double-post show? It shows that you too, suck eggs. Now go cry your widdle self to sleep.

the double post shows that either my 'puter, service, or somethiing else is slow. When I post and the little explorer circle goes round and round...I wait a full minute and then press post again...double post.

I see in #424 that you have increased your vocabulary!!! how exciting it must be for you...."pound sand"...insightful,descriptive, meaningful...in fact, based on your previous offerings, practically brilliant. I think I'll get some sand to pound as we speak!!

And I will, and am, actively campaigning against him, including phone calls and personal visits.

Thus guaranteeing a double post every time.
