Twin car bombs in Turkey killed 41 people and injured 100 others Saturday.
The double blast occurred in a crowded area of the small town of Reyhanli in the southern Turkish province of Hatay, just a few kilometers from the main border crossing into Syria.

Coming soon to America.
They can say goodbye to the Olympics. :)
Odd, I don’t see that source on the excerpt list:
bnd.com (Belleville News Democrat)
boston.com (www.boston.com The Boston Globe)
feer.com (Far Eastern Economic Review)
The Guardian (UK)
jacksonville.com (Florida-Times Union)
All McClatchy sources must be excerpted and linked.
These publishers have asked us not to allow any material at all to be posted to FR:
It is interesting that we say nothing and Iran condemns it. Up is down and down is up.
What? It hasn’t already shown up in Boston? But that was just a preliminary visit. I get you.
Excerpting, it appears, is a singular obsession of yours. Anyone who does it is accused of ‘pimping’ and showered with abuse, which probably explains why your account is suspended.
So I’ll tell you what. List, shmist. Excerpting is mandatory somehow with regards to A7. Call me a liar? Then try posting an article, any article at all from A7 without excerpting. You can even use a weather forecast. I don’t care. If you can do it, rub my face in it, or better yet, tell me how it’s done. If you can’t or won’t, then shut up.
I will now continue to studiously ignore you, having broken my own rule for this one time, in order to make the foregoing dare.
“This account has been banned or suspended.
is a clever edit, on his part.
Odd, I dont see that source on the excerpt list:
try posting an article, any article at all from A7 without excerpting
I can't post, my account is suspended.
If you can do it
I can't do anything, my account is suspended.
I can't even post this to you.
try posting an article, any article at all from A7
No, thanks. That lot gain enough hits via your own efforts.
Let me know when your account isn't suspended. Then I will post something to you.
It's difficult what with the suspension and all.
“I can’t do anything, my account is suspended.
I can’t even post this to you.”
That begs a question.
“try posting an article, any article at all from A7
No, thanks. That lot gain enough hits via your own efforts.”
He has not put up. That leaves him with only one honorable alternative.
Why aren’t you excerpting exclusively from
the Baptist site out of Casey Ridge? Bias?
Don’t know where that is? Don’t care?
I live in Israel. I post articles from an Israeli web site. I post from the sites that interest me, usually A7, but lately also MEMRI. If Latma TV had English subtitles on a regular basis, I’d also post from there. I used to post a lot from AOL, but then they joined an unholy alliance with Huffpost, and even if freep still accepted posts from there, I’d still avoid it like the plague, because it’s nothing but idiocy. I also used to post a lot from the NY Post, but lately (for the past few years) I haven’t bothered, since they grew too predictable.
I don’t take dictations from anyone as to where I should post from, least of all you, and I don’t need to justify my posting habits to anyone, least of all you. Try getting off probation, and then you can post from wherever you want, and talk about anything you want to, though I suspect that your favorite subject will still be calling other freepers pimps, which is why I’d favor the monitors outright banning you. You sound like a sour old coot who’s hurt that his children don’t visit, using freep as catharsis for your bitterness, and we can do without that here.
But go ahead and prove me wrong. I hear that you used to be a respected poster, and would be happy to see you once again with something to say, instead of an ax to grind.
You are a strange character.
Bully for you. Everyone lives somewhere.
You STILL only post from a single source.
I dont take dictations from anyone
Except for that one source, eh?
I dont need to justify my posting habits to anyone
You just blew about three paragraphs doing just that.
Try getting off probation
I'll work on that.
I hear that you used to be a respected poster, and would be happy to see you once again with something to say, instead of an ax to grind.
If you can excerpt a single source, why can't I grind my single axe?
“If you can excerpt a single source, why can’t I grind my single axe?”
You can. It just makes your contributions to freep worth that much less. “Here he goes again,” everyone says. Conversely, I could post from a million different sources. But I’m lazy, and have to eat and sleep sometime, and work and commute. So I do one, and I can do that, too, and you can choose to ignore me. That’s why this is a free republic.
Your worldview is so limited as to include just that material which is local to you.
Which brings us back to New Caney VS Casey ridge.
Do you care? Are you in favor of the Baptists? Or the Snake-Handling Pentecostals?
Don’t care? I don’t blame you.
Would you be in favor of me profiting by posting about either of those, via excerpts?
If not, why not?
Humblegunner is just trying to goad you with his “Oh so cute” responses. It’s best to simply ignore him. Sometimes I wish that FR had an official Ignore List.
“Would you be in favor of me profiting by posting about either of those, via excerpts?
If not, why not?”
I have no idea why anyone would be opposed to profiting by posting. If I knew how to do it, I would. What’s wrong with profit? You a socialist?
Nothing, unless I'm paying your advertising bill.
You a socialist?
You a Christophobe?
“Whats wrong with profit?
Nothing, unless I’m paying your advertising bill.”
You mean, it would cost you money if somebody made money because you might click on something that they posted? That is what socialists believe: that any profit is made at the expense of somebody else, and therefore all profits are wrong.
“You a socialist?
You a Christophobe?”
Note. He did not answer my question, but instead hurled an entirely baseless and unrelated charge at me. I submit to your honor that Humblegunner is a closet leftist, and ask that he be zotted. End of story.
Silence anyone who disagrees or questions me! Remove them!
He did not answer my question
Off With His Head!
“Silence anyone who disagrees or questions me! Remove them!”
I’m sure you’ll still be able to exercise your right to free speech at Moveon.org among your fellow travelers. The right to free speech does not include the right to an audience or a forum, which is why Mr. Robinson in his wisdom zots trolls like you. That’s freep policy. Deal with it. ‘bye ‘bye.
“He did not answer my question
Off With His Head!”
You apparently have lost your head anyway, if you think being removed from a forum is the equivalent of decapitation. Life goes on.
It is fascinating that you are calling for my removal over my questioning of sourcing and motive.
No. I am calling for your removal because you have shown yourself to be a dyed-in-the-wool socialist, who holds the same basic assumptions as socialists with regards to profit; i.e., that one cannot make money without taking it away from someone else. Also there is the fact that when I asked you point-blank if you were a socialist, you refused to answer the question, but instead accused me without basis of being a Christophobe. Why? Can you point to any post in which I denigrated or expressed fear of Christians? I have expressed disagreement with Christians over some fundamental theological questions, but that is neither here nor there. Of course, there is the fact that I am Jewish. Does that make me a Christophobe? That question itself, asked out of the clear blue, smacks of anti-Semitism. And how does calling me a Christophobe answer the question “are you a socialist?” The answer to that is either yes or no, but you can’t bring yourself to even address it. So are you?
When I thought you were just a cranky old man, I never would have dreamed of asking for your removal. But you have forced my hand, not by disagreeing with me or questioning my motives, but by expressing your own all too clearly. You are a troll.
Oh, thanks for clearing that up.
when I asked you point-blank if you were a socialist, you refused to answer the question
Yes, I live in soviet Russia and we invented it first!
I have expressed disagreement with Christians over some fundamental theological questions
Of course, there is the fact that I am Jewish
you cant bring yourself to even address it. So are you?
You're attracted to me, aren't you?
When I thought you were just a cranky old man, I never would have dreamed of asking for your removal
I'm still a cranky old man, and I'm meeeellting! What a worrrld!
you have forced my hand, not by disagreeing with me or questioning my motives, but by expressing your own all too clearly
Thank you. So many folks fail to understand me as you have done.
You are a troll.
I love you too.
Take your meds.
I am calling for your removal because you have shown yourself to be a dyed-in-the-wool socialist

Wow. I do they have oxygen on the planet you are from?
You know.. I’ve been jacking with blogpimps and other
criminals for years. I’ve never called for a banning.
I think you are pretty weak, calling for the cops to save you.
Get a clue. Gunner is a very nice man, a funny guy, deeply Conservative, God fearing, on the side of Free Republic and FReepers, and a dear friend to a LOT of people here.
Get over yourself, and try to look on the bright side of life.
P.S. The site owner has refused better people than you who asked for humblegunner to be banned. You will not win this one.
I’m calling for the removal of a troll. Save yourself.
I am not looking for him to be banned, just ridiculed and shamed.
I am surprised at anyone who stands with this fool.
He doesn’t have a clue what blogs and hosting are (here’s a hint, the Wall Street Journal has “blogs” and CNN uses the same hosting process as some small blogs he derides for simply using that process), he jumps on and tries to disrupt threads that bring Freepers news and opinions from some of the most conservative websites from around the world, and he slanders Freepers, calling them pedophiles.
He might be “funny and deeply conservative” but he’s disgracing FR and Texas.
Yehuda, I don’t believe that I addressed my post to you, but you’re a nice person, and I will answer.
Humblegunner is doing a service to Free Republic by his asking bloggers to post their original content here in its entirety. If it is their own work, then excerpting and linking to their blogs drives traffic away from Free Republic for no reason.
Free Republic is funded 100% by generous FReepers who donate during FReepathons or sign up to donate monthly for a steady income stream for this site that we all enjoy so much.
They do not donate in order to have bloggers come here and redirect Free Republic’s traffic away to other sites, especially when the blogger had no reason to excerpt and link, which drives our traffic away. And yes, I am one who can say, “our traffic.”
There are more than several bloggers who publish their work in its entirety here after listening to humblegunner, to JimRob’s thoughts on the matter, and understanding humblegunner’s mission.
Bloggers who are presenting other reporters’ work that is copyrighted must consult the list of publications that demand excerpting, and act accordingly.
FReepers who criticize and try to ban humblegunner are not listening to these facts.
If you don’t get humblegunner’s humor, and you attack him, he will attack you back. Very Texan, IMO.
Humblegunner is turning this supposedly reasonable complaint into something else entirely.
First, when one posts an excerpt, the link to the excerpt is opened in a different window, so no traffic is being “redicrected”.
Second, there are more sites for which excerpting is mandatory than appears on the list, which is badly in need of an update. My own favorite, A7, is among them.
Third, nobody forces anyone to click on a link or even read a post. It is a voluntary act.
Fourth, it is very easy to ascertain if someone is doing this for commercial purposes. The link posted would have to contain a signature in its html code, which would be different from the code one would see when opening the web site where the article appears and clicking on the article itself. Otherwise, how would the site know if the hit came from the alleged “pimp” so as to pay them their fraction of a penny in consideration of this piddling service.
Fifth, redirecting traffic to another site does not harm free republic. We all have multitasking browsers that can get us back to Free Republic, or any place else that we want. But insults and abuse do, and in fact are against the terms of service here. If the said insults and abuse were justified, I would understand it. But they are not, and humble dispenses them indiscriminately, without investing the few minutes it would take to compare the web site with the link posted for a signature. Myself, I am a big boy. I can ignore humble or occasionally cut him as I please. But he is doing nothing else here, and being appallingly sloppy with his accusations. Others do not have as thick an armor as I do, and so for their sake I want him gone.
Finally, there is something profoundly anti-capitalistic in this campaign of his. So what if someone makes a fraction of a penny if you click on a web site they post a link to. Another window will open, and you can view both freep and the web site. I do not know how to “pimp” a site. If I knew how, I’d do it. I like A7 and post what I read because I like to share it with others and hear what they have to say. That is my only motive. If I had a blog, I’d post its content in full, though.
The fact that Humble does nothing else here except fight this imaginary dragon suggests to me that he has a problem with money making, which makes him either a socialist or an anarchist. Whether or not this is so, he does have a problem contributing anything whatever of worth to this forum, and instead picks fights and deals in insults, and this spells out to me the word TROLL, and freep would be well rid of him. Since he has repeatedly attacked me, I do indeed fight back and call him as I see him.
Give it a rest, will ya?
I would if he would.
