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.
Good! Thanks very much, (((((LAZ))))))
I appreciate that Zman... I truly do. Thank you.
Well my friend there’s nothing that can be added to what you’ve said. Maybe “Hear, hear!” :-)
I believe that. When he dropped out, I think he said he still believed God had led him to run, but that didn’t necessarily mean winning——it could have been meant as a learning experience.
I do think he learned a lot during that run. If, as someone said, he’s thinking about running in 2016, he might be able to put those lessons to good use.
You’re going to stay right here, FRiend. :)
FR is and will remain a pro-life, pro-family, pro-small government site and therefore will NEVER support the abortionist, homosexualist, big government mandate loving liberal/progressive, Mitt Romney.
Donations be damned!! Won’t sell my soul for Romney or the GOP-e who want nothing more than to remove the pro-life, pro-family, pro-gun, pro-borders, pro-liberty even the small government, small debt planks from the Republican party platform and see Romney as their ticket to do so. If “conservatives” give big government liberal/progressive Romney a pass then obviously these principles are not serious issues.
We are where we are and there isn’t a damned thing either of us can do about it at this point.
I will assign blame/credit as I choose and you can do the same.
My position remains unchanged. If Perry had stuck to the things he REALLY believes, as he so well articulated in his book, and told Dave Carney and his ilk to take a hike he would be our nominee today.
Thanks very much for your kind words, but you have more FRiends and support here than you can possibly know.
I think you're one of our most clarion voices in "Our Resistance!"
How in the heck does anyone think that a man like Perry is gay? That could not have been said in earnest... that was said for the hurtful effect.
Oh good grief..That is the silliest post yet..Get over yourself.
Fair enough! That is how it shall be!
Thank you Red!
I am a free man. I will not be pushed, filed, stamped, indexed, briefed, debriefed, or numbered! My life is my own!
Seriously speaking, you might have already figured this out if you'd have read my tagline. I don't take kindly to strangers telling me how to act without any explanation or reason. And even then, I will debate the point if it doesn't make sense to me.
I think youre picking a fight just to pick a fight.
And no, I'm pointing out the problems of this site so that those who run it can affect the necessary changes so that it can continue to exist. I take your post to be, in essence, a desire to bury your head in the sand.
That’s the way it’s always been. I wouldn’t expect people who don’t believe in what we’re doing or who do not enjoy reading and participating here to donate.
They were just picking up on an ugly rumor started by some leftwingers. To me, that’s one of the most nasty things you can try to smear a man with.
It’s been obvious for days, we have a spiteful, crazy old bat on the threads, whom I’ve tried to ignore, but she keep coming back at me for more.
“Bless her heart.”
Yeah, that was appalling. Thing is, I am not really sure Cain meant any of the stuff he was saying by that time. Herman was just winging it. I'm sure he never anticipated going as high in the polls as he did. And those polling numbers brought the kind of scrutiny he was in no way prepared for. The reality is, Herman was running a book tour paid for via campaign contributions. He was never really a serious candidate and could never have survived a full length campaign.
FYI, I was just informed that you have some on the list that have have died.
I've seen somebody with a tagline: ping me if you want on the zot ping list.
Why don't you go to that person?
Are you telling us that if the $$$ doesn't come in, it isn't missed?
Oh, I agree with you that mistakes were made...big ones. I hate it, but there’s nothing to do about it now.
Come on, 2016, LOL
I think that may be very well true. I was pretty mean at first, then I backed off all of them that were running for awhile. I got to thinking, what are we doing? We are horrible to every one of our candidates. Meanwhile that big earred POS Obama was out there answering to nothing. Obama is the worst and far more horrible of all of our guys wrapped in to one America hating destroyer.
I will tell you this, Perry could make a living on TV. LOL
If you spell good manners g-a-l-l, you do in deed have good manners.
Jim, Amen! We agree with you 100%! We are sending $100 your way.
Well, unlike a nanny, you don’t have to obey.
And you’ve made it clear that you find my advice to be less than useful. Your choice. I won’t force you to follow it.
Nor will I address it to you again.
However, I expect the same level of courtesy from you as well. I am a conservative that stresses the constitution and limited government more than you. If I speak my mind on those matters, I do not expect to worry about whether you, or the Admin Moderator, will ZOT me for it.
I wish you a good day.
I do enjoy those things Jim but I also enjoy debating, and changing the minds of, those who don’t see things EXACTLY as I see them. Sadly that is no longer possible here in my view. The trigger on the ZOT machine is to fine and has been for some time. That is the ONLY issue with me and we have spoken about it before in private.
I’m not leaving so you will have to throw me out if that offends you.
You stated that "You have people listed here who have been zotted or left voluntarily several months ago."
When politely asked, you refused and have now announced there are deceased on the list.
The only person that appears petty is you. You pointed something out and spend 2 posts refusing to share what you saw. That is petty and churlish.
Oh please, I know you think you’re smarter than everybody else, but you’re not. You’re nothing but an arrogant jerk. Nobody needs you to save us all from ourselves. We will do quite nicely without you.
For the most part, I like it here. Do I like everything or everybody, I do not. I do believe if you post here you should be willing to pay. I do not understand why people stay at a place they don’t like. If I decide I don’t like it here, I’ll leave. I’m not going to hang around and whine about it.
I don’t have my head in the sand, but you do appear to have your head up your butt.
Concern troll, you were already told to direct your information to Jim Robinson.
He is responsible for the names on the list.
I’ve had enough of your false accusations.
I’m not on the ZOT ping list either.
FWIW, some of the deceased who remain on the list, were prepaid for a year. GitmoSailor is one. His death anniversary is May 17, 2012.
Now, either submit your information to Jim, or mind your own damn business, and stop posting to me.
Oh, great, now someone will offer him a reality show, LOL.
Some say I am just a loud mouthed redneck... maybe the truth lies somewhere in between. ;-)
Why are you here?
Please, seriously, unless it is rude to ask, how much do you donate to FR monthly so that I may make arrangements to cover it should you leave off posting on FR for any reason. Again, thank you for honoring my request.
I’m not surprised that good manners are something about which you are unfamiliar.
That was reprehensible but so far from reality that it is laughable... but it is gutter politics and that should not exist in this Republic.
it’s been a really long time since I posted. I stopped after the Giuliani purge a long time ago. I used to be a regular Freeper and post articles and comment a lot ...I had FRiends here. Then the Guliani purge. Really this was nothing compared to that. If anyone posted a positive article on Rudy dozens of the same attack dogs would rip Rudy supporters. It was the same thing one pack of purists could not spew enough venom. It got so bad that I guess Jim just decided to end it all by having the famous bug zapper thread where lots and lots of cool posters were zotted while the anti-Rudy mob just kept cheering. I’m not sure why I wasn’t zotted but I didn’t opus out or anything I just left and thought I’d come back but never really did.
Well I guess it worked. The cool kids beat the shit out of the Rudy supporters got them zotted and then cheered while they were shown the door. I don’t think FR was ever really the same after that. Go back to that thread and see how many good Freepers were zotted, it’s lot’s and lot’s.
Well Rudy didn’t even try to run in so-con states and when he couldn’t win FL he was done. That left McCain who couldn’t punch himself out of wet paper bag and he got mopped up by the hopey changy fraud.
Had Rudy been the nominee during the crash he would have prolly beaten obama. Voters knew he could handle a crisis and he could also fight back unlike the hapless McCaine. But we’ll never know.
The SAME argument that was used against Guliani by the Purists is now being used against Romney. That a moderate Repub is WORSE then a a democrat because he’s a trojan horse ..slow poison... blah ...blah ...blah socialist...abortionist...blah blah the country and the GOP would be better off being taught a lesson...blah...blah.
Well the Purists got EXACTLY what they wanted. A FOR REAL,FOR REAL hard core leftist/feminist American hating, anti-capitalist who wants to “fundamentally change” this country.
Well it’s working. He’s willing to ruin the economic lives of a generation to reach the dims goal of some bizarre utopia where where we live on 15nth century technology ...windmills and solar.
Have jack booted thugs running the EPA who want to “crucify” energy producers or anyone else who get’s in their way.....have any of you read about the obama enemies list who want to blackmail doners to the GOP?
Have mandated health care which was drafted by Nancy Pelosi.
We had a worthless trillion dollar stimulus drafted by Nancy Pelosi.
We now Krugman economic plan that we can never tax too much nor spend too much nor regulate enough.
There is no problem that can’t be solved by an army of bureaucrats with unlimited powers with a billion dollars of taxpayer money.
TSA thugs assaulting crippled children and little old ladies in wheelchairs.
Trample over the fundamental over the right of freedom of religion and if a peep is raised hysterically scream you’re declaring a “War on Woman” in fact make everything a “War on Woman”....a budget...student loans...you name it.
Sotomeyer more hard core feminests on courts.
And in his own words when he thought the mike was off “JUST WAIT TILL AFTER THE ELECTION”!!!!!!!
jeez! then he and michelle and nancy pelosi and kathryn seblelious can REALLY start kicking the shit out of us.
This was all just the warm up.
Well I have personally suffered under these maniacs. In 08 job was gone and at 50 years old I’m standing in line with my resume in a stupid suit behind 500 other guys. I’ve burned through my savings sold my car and have had to take shitty job after shitty job. I was making more money at 25. ..and then to get a job it was easy just ask around....now it’s ...well. I’m not gonna get these years back.
To those who say Guliani or Bush or Romney would be the same or worse than obama have not personally suffered under this regime ..their retired or wealthy or who knows... I’m not sure if their posts are parody or clueless ..some even seem right out of DU. When you get far enough out there it can be hard to tell what side you’re on. ...but they really seem pretty far left in wanting to “punish”...people who don’t think like them. They call Guliani and Romney marxists!! Has even one of them looked up the definition of Marxism or socialism??? Or is it a smear they use just like the left cries “racism” or “gay basher” to silence opposition?
There is a huge difference between Romney and a hard core like obama. At least we can hold Romney’s feet to the fire like we did W’s during the Miers fiasco. With obama all you’re gonna get is a boot in the face.
So when Romney say’s “hold on a little longer” “I’ll build the Keystone pipeline myself”
Heck I wanna give the guy a chance. .....NO WAY it could be worse....but that’s just me and I ain’t gonna change any minds here....bye
I would be willing to help you on that one. Let me know if you get an answer.
Exactly. Why are you here?
Because I remember the good old days before people like you showed up!
Financial picture has improved slightly, but improved none the less.
You are obviously here to disrupt. Not to improve anything.
It's much easier if we all fight this battle together.
