Everyone please send whatever you are able to, whether it is $10, $100 or $1,000+. The DUmmies, Morons, Kos Kiddies and that crew are laughing up their sleeves. Jim may have to make this site members only or allow ads. Better for us to just help with what we can. Maybe you can donate as a memorial for a lost loved one, a servicemember who never made it home or was disabled defending our country. Perhaps you'd like to give to keep free discussion alive and to show them that we're not knuckling under. I'm sure a well thought out or prayerful meditation will lead you to see the need and how you can help. If every registered FReeper and our lurkers would each just help out with a fin or a sawbuck, or better yet a Ben Franklin, we could put this to bed and get on with the conservative cause.
I think that a lot of posts on this thread tonight have been a long time coming. I know they have been for me. Your post about choking kittens was particularly disturbing to me - like you were projecting your own warped thoughts.
Now you're trying to deflect it to Wolfstar - but your post is there for everyone to see. Creepy stuff.
I have already shown you that word "if" was NOT in your reply 1165.
Take responsibility for your words for once, will you?
I used the word "scam" because you used the word "fraud", and I would never use the word "fraud" in talking about Jim Robinson.
If you wanted an accounting, all you ever had to do was ask Jim.
You have gone from projection to misdirection.
There was no justification to use the word "fraud", especially when you have been here or over 12 years.
As I said before, you have a personal issue with the owner, and you need to take it up with him.
But to call this site a fraud,and to insinuate the solicitation of money is fraudulent because you think the money is not being spent wisely because you are some kind of expert in the field of computing, was beyond the pale.
In spite of you being here 12 years, you did not even have the decency to ping the owner of the site in your post 1165.
You can tap dance all night, but I continue to ask you, and will for the fifth time, why are you here?
Sorry, I’ve posted thousands of times that we do not support abortionists on FR. If that’s what you wish to do, you might as well go find a new home on the net. You’re not going to do it here. FR is and will remain a pro-life conservative site despite the GOP RINOS.
There is no freeper named Wolfstar, but I can tell you that he would think that you have tried to totally reverse reality.
Well, I could have picked one side or the other out of about a half dozen or so and banned all others. Thought it was just best to allow them to fight it out.
Uh, I’m not going to support an abortionist liberal progressive even if he has a “R” beside his name. The GOP-e are a bunch of dumb asses for pushing this leftist democrat on us.
Something a lot of peeps are missing is the bigger picture and what’s REALLY going on here...
It’s FAR bigger than this election, than this website, than this country.
(Jim? This herding cats thing.... I couldn’t do it. You have far more patience than I do.)
Well, you know I used to tell people who said things like this not to send us money that they need for other things and that FR is doing fine. Well, after a couple of them told me they were hurt by my comments and really wanted to support our conservative causes and were proud to do so, I quit objecting. We greatly appreciate all contributions no matter how large or how small and are proud to have as many pro-life conservative freepers participating on FR whether they can donate or not. A tiny fraction of our readership supports the entire shooting match.
By the way, speaking of donations, this just in:
$20.00 from Oregon
$10.00 from Kansas
$30.00 monthly from California (renewal and increase)
$50.00 from Florida
$10.00 from Tennessee
Thank you all very much!!
We are FR!! Unabashedly pro-God, pro-life, pro-family, pro-limited government, pro-traditional American conservative and unashamed and unafraid to be so!!
OPEN ALL NIGHT!!
Well, you can’t blame the moderators. I instructed them to lay low, that I expected FR to be a bloody battleground for this primary season and that we would just have to let it play out. And play out it did. I did take out a few of the nastier ones, but we’re all supposed to be conservative adults here and for the most part we are. We shouldn’t need a nanny to tell us how to behave in public.
Is that a shameless plug? :D RedMDer posted a FReepathon ad I was tempted to ad him to the Whale Wars Ping list!!! The more the merrier.
Proof that we have threads without this type of nonsense. onyx you do gotta check out the thread you will laugh hysterically it was hippies vs. Al Qaeda on Whale Wars and I'm not even joking.
The Hippies thought it would be smart to fight Libyan fisherman when Obama and the Muslim Brotherhood were taking over Libya. They didn't realize that the Arabs fight back unlike the Japanese whalers. If you have On Demand you gotta watch this you will never laugh more in your entire life!
The donors are donors not owners. We don’t sell shares in the company. That would be a violation of securities law. That’s not the way the founding fathers set it up, it’s just another way the Democrat tyrants (aided and abetted by the Republican tyrants) have of attempting to control us and deprive us of our God given rights to self-governance and the pursuit of Happiness (economic freedom). Look it up.
Ditto!!! Mods have been very helpful. I need to personally thank the Religion_Moderator who helped me figure out how to block the religion posts that seem to be like a flame fest.
And one of the Mods today assisted me with a question so yeah I am not going to complain about the mods, they've been very helpful to me. So kudos to them for all the help :)
But as I told Quix, too many people think they are legal experts because they watch Judge Judy!!!
I think some of these yahoos should talk with their attorneys and CPAs before shooting their mouths off about stuff they obviously know nothing about. Same goes for operating a large site like FR (Traffic Rank in US: Number 1,162 out of millions of sites according to Alexa today) with over 200,000 unique users and a million page views per day and a server/disk farm capable of handling and storing millions of transactions per year from millions of users. I’ve been involved in the computer business since 1972 and in business for myself since 1988. I know just enough about this stuff to really get myself into some fine messes. Just too damn dumb and stubborn to realize that we can’t do what we’re attempting to do on FR and have been doing it since 1996—with no capital and no “professionals” involved.
We are the resistance!!
You've answered your own questions.....It Is Jim's table...and it is his "Party" we as 'conservatives' are invited to..... That does not give others a right to bash the host or complain about his decisions as we know he is thoughtful enough to ask our "opinions". Nor should Freepers bash those he relys on to make FR work.
Though you've said you understand Jim's position I can't agree that you do, otherwise you would not be in the position you have found yourself of questioning the pupose of FR.
As to being "on the team"....if you mean the Gop...they're no longer my team...they took the ball and ran it for the opposing team, and continue to do so. It's really that simple.
Further,... when we keep electing the "lessor of two evils" we continue to keep marching more and more into perpetual debt.. and erosion of our rights... until this country looks more like Socialist Europe than the USA.....Does that sound like a working solution?...Did not our founders escape that very thing to form our nation independant and free?.... They refused to "Consent"...
.....When the Founding Fathers spoke of government... 'By Consent' of the governed,.... they knew exactly what government was like when it was Not conducted 'by consent' of the governed...... The latter was the government the colonists were subjected to:
......innumerable measures, including taxes, were passed by the British Parliament,.... and the colonists had no input,.... no representatives to express their dissent,..... and no opportunity to do anything except obey the laws imposed upon them.
"Consent Of The Governed"... was a concept applied to the nation as a whole, to the people in their plurality..... It is the nation that is the source of authority acting through the government, and it is the nation's 'Consent' that makes government legitimate.
How many times do we continue to "Consent" to the very thing we oppose? ...When is enough enough?...Just exactly when will this nations people stop the madness in an election system rigged years before we are permitted a vote which counts for nothing at all?
Half the nations states were purposely excluded, and thousands of voters in this Primary...again!... The same will occur in the General. I will not "Consent" any longer to this corruption .....our vote is our Consent... and that has 'value' for some more than others.
Have the costs of FR ever been posted? It is a simple forum web site. How much does it cost to run?
None of these people are small business owners. Let alone something this large. And everyone now a days thinks they are some sort of expert. Yeah tell that to me when you actually run a business!!!
I'm sure the ghoul who tried to get me banned is crying to every mod and person he knows but I said what needed to be said. I started a business, went through hell to get the LLC and I'm successful. I have to deal with thugs non stop. Usually, they are from various marketing firms. That's when I go into my high and mighty mode and tell them I have an MBA and you can probably finish the rest without me resorting to foul language.
Until someone starts a business they have no idea what the hell they are talking about and how much time, money and work goes into it. I'm in IL I bet CA is ten times worse. They don't hand out LLC's like Cracker Jack boxes, you have to go through hell to get one.
Hence why I've always been outspoken, a male FReeper who is only known as "the guy who posts for singing TV shows like Glee" is not going to scare me off Free Republic. I live in Crook County, IL. Cowards like him are nothing compared to the scum running this County... Everyone in this country knows Cook County, so running a business here is like dealing with Tony Soprano.
Not during a Primary....you mentioned FR being "family"...families fight when they are passionate over a matter and that includes politics...they cry and whine and belly ache...together and behind each others back. And sometimes there is no resolution...it's accepted as that. Fr IS a family....that's why this stuff happens.
Now I speak of this having married into a very large family all involved with various businesses in the company. Seven brothers and sisters along with their mates and kids...and the BIg man and his wife...It was like "Dallas"...in fact my father- in -law had a professional sign placed on the homestead..."NorthFork".
I've seen it all...and is basically what I see here on Fr. Especially if there are "intruders" from outside the FR family. In my family we might fight have fought like dog and cats but an 'outsider' would not want to tangle with any member without the full force of the family rallying.
So Quix...it really is a family here...
P.S. BTW...Jim and the moderators remind me of the "Big Man" and His wife.....when the family got out of hand with their bickering...they spoke and it was a done deal. And yes it wasn't always 'fair'..and some would pout, others crawl off and we wouldn't communicate for weeks on end. But sooner or later all came around once again.
