Sayin' Bye Bye
March 16th, 2003 | Sneakypete

Posted on 03/16/2003 4:34:13 PM PST by Chapita

Well folks,the time has come for me to take a permanent vacation from FR. I am asking JR to close out my account,but try to make sure that nobody else can ever use my screen name. I'm not leaving in a huff at JR or the web site like most people do,even though there is plenty here to be "huffed" about. I'm leaving because Ali Bubba Bush will soon be starting his war in Iraq,and I don't want to be posting to FR when the body bags start coming back home,or when Hussein lights off all the oil fields in Iraq and tries to attack Israel.

While it is true there is no shortage of fools and idiots in the Bush-Bot League,there are also sincere people there who mean well,but just haven't taken the time to think things through. They just automatically assume that any president with a "R" behind his name is a conservative,and has the best interests of the country in mind at all times. It has never occurred to them that an alleged Republican president would "play" politics or "play" the polls in a manner that would put our service members at unnecessary risk.

There are also good people on FR who support Ali Bubba and his accidental war because they have loved ones in the military,and they see supporting the president as being the same thing as supporting the troops. This flat ain't so (they didn't support Bubba-1 or LBJ),but they mean well,and they are grasping at any straw that comes their way. I understand their fears and symphatize with them. I may well have the same reaction if I had a child in the army or USMC that was deployed to the Middle East or in Korea.

I have zero desire to cause any harm or worry to either of these groups. On the other hand,there are a group of people here that are too bleeping stupid to live,and I honestly have to wonder how they managed to live to become adults without walking out in front of a bus. As an example,one of these rocket scientists called me a "nazi" today because I am opposed to this war. Seriously. He actually said that "only a Nazi or an Islamism would be opposed to this war." After all,isn't it a well-known fact that the Nazi's didn't believe in war and invading sovereign countries? Another one SERIOUSLY wrote that we should bomb and invade all the European countries that don't support us in this war! What is even scarier is that I am the only one I saw that called these people on this nonsense. I could sorta deal with these cretins when they were a minority voice here,but it's got to the point where they are almost mainstream FR posters. In fact,I just got suspended again today for calling the idiot who called me a Nazi stupid,so it seems like the moderators don't see anything wrong with calling somebody against the war a "Nazi",but don't dare call the drooler who uttered this insanity "stupid"! The ironic part about this is that I had already posted to several posters that my response to them would probably be my last one because I was leaving FR. This right here shows you how much attention the moderators really pay to the back and forth between two posters. Basically,it's gotten to the point here where it's "Bush-Bot=good,anti-war=bad!"

And the above only touches on the surface. We have people here applauding every single step Ali Bubba-2 Bush has taken down the road to the coming police state,and they would be screaming "revolution!" if it had been Bubba-1 or Gore doing the very same things. Why it has gotten unpopular on FR to point out hyprocisy is a question better answered by JR and the moderators than me,but FR is in danger of becoming the Dim-Lite flipside of DU.

The reason I am asking to have my account killed is because the "rah,rah,rah,we gonna kill us some A-Rabs and godless Muslims!" pack of fools seem to have taken over,and it's pointless to debate an empty mind. There is also the fact that any such debate is bound to include words and phrases that would be harmful to the good people here with loved ones at risk,and I won't do that. It's just not worth it.

I am asking Chapita to post this for me because the moderator suspended me before I could "resign". I hope those of you on the thread I started today about Flesh Eating Bacteria tell the others there why I don't respond to their posts,and I hope that those of you who have loved ones involved in this war get to welcome them home safe and sound. The purpose of this post/thread is to say "good-bye" to the good people here,and to let people know why I won't be answering any posts they make to me. I have always tried to answer each post to me,friendly or hostile,and I would hate for anyone to think I was ignoring them.

Folks,while it has been frustrating as hell at times,it has also been fun,and I have "met" some very nice people here. It's time for me to move on. I wish (most) of you well.

Sneakypete

There is some truth to his alligations of a "rah-rah-rah" flag waving contingent here on FR that would have opposed many of the measures put forth, had they been offered up by a Democrat instead of a Republican..

Adios, Sneakypete. I didn't always agree with everything you posted but I admired your directness and knowledge. I sure as hell would want you by my side in a firefight. Maybe you will get past some of these issues and come back to battle on. I hope so. If not, best of luck to you. Good opus.

I think it's obvious..

We even had FReepers going to the wall over that "TIPS" thing that was proposed. FR would have come positively unglued if clinton had tried that.

Why the swan song? If you MUST leave, wouldn't leaving quietly have been better? You have been here almost as long as I have and if you're against the Presidents actions, stick around and say so! We might not agree with you but we can take it.

Good bye Sneaky Pete.....

Although I believe your taking the cowards way out....get a backbone and stand up for your beliefs.....Even though I don't share them...

There is a price to pay for freedom....security is no longer provided by oceans.... We need to face down aggression worldwide as it presents itself...There is a price to be paid, unfortunately, it is in blood....

If we are lucky, if the war goes as planned including the numerous contingencies, then our boys (and gals) will be home with few casualties...

God speed to them....

had they been offered up by a Democrat instead of a Republican..

In order to accept that statement, and it may be true, you first have to assume MORAL equivalency between Democrats and Republicans. I do not. It may be true that noboby is perfect(duh). Had 9/11 happened on a Dems watch I still think many people would back our leader. Of course I am sure a Democrat President might not have stood as tall as our current president.

Consider this: Not one country is upset with the US for having liberated them, including France and Germany. I am glad people like you do not run the world. It is brave people willing to die that make the world a better place. For the likes of you America would have never been started, no Tea Party, no revolution. What would the world be like? Full of suffering at the hands of tyrants!

Give me liberty or give me death! Adios amigos.
