It really is a uniquely circular and closed little world you run here, Jim. Newbies who find your web site and want to participate are bound by a very specific (and unwritten) set of rules: Dont express your opinion on controversial topics or youll be banned, Dont post on certain threads or youll be banned, Shut up and accept and loudly agree with anything you see posted by an old hand and/or Howlin or youll be banned, Do not presume to question an old hand and/or Howlin or youll be banned, Besides Jim Robinson, Howlin is your god and dont you ever forget it or youll be banned. I think you get the idea.
Your ridiculous justification of your silencing of William Gheen and banning of material from Alipac because a few disruptors sometimes post racist material there is laughable. Considering that some Freepers can and do routinely refer to non-terrorist Muslims as sand niggers Islamokazis, and other despicably childish names with no fear of banning or punishment, this pathetic intellectual fig leaf you wear is the lowest sort of hypocrisy. Not to mention the Terri Schiavo fanatics you egg on who are conducting a real high-tech lynching of a grieving husband whose only "sin" is trying to stop his stricken wife's pain as she requested.
Nazi sympathizers, racists (as long as it is white-on-black racism of course), and even those who advocate the shooting of people they dont like all have a voice and a home on FreeRepublic, just as long as they are not newbies.
How much do you want to bet that this poster will remain in good standing on FreeRepublic?:
Meanwhile, I am just waiting on Federal Hunting Licensing for US citizens to police the borders. A good plan would include bounty and no bag limit

You have the right under the law to ban whomever you please from your site, Jim. But you obviously know by now that doing so does not mean that those you ban are simply going to shut up and go away. When you and your out-of-control moderators ban people then your indoctrinated flying monkeys such as MeekOneGOP, bmwcyle, Howlin, Grampa Dave, and Coop treat them rudely and offensively and post funny kitty pictures as sport, you should know by now that bad karma is its own punishment. And as people like Joseph Steffen have discovered to their detriment and pain, those who you and your harpies drive off from your site will not simply sit down, shut up, and take it. And no amount of foot-stamping and chin-quivering on your part will change these facts.
A piece of parting advice (for I am gone and will not stick around to accept the abuse that will surely come raining down on me for posting this from what has become the North Korea of the Internet): Rein in your flying monkeys soon Jim, before they literally become you. I know that you dont routinely nuke accounts in order to pad your statistics, but I am hoping you will make an exception in my case.
(Jim Robinson talking about George W. Bush)
Well, by God, if you people insist on electing another cokehead as President, you damned well better throw open all the prison cell doors and free every man, woman, and child you're holding on drug charges. And if you're gonna elect another drug felon as President, you'd better rescind each and every one of your unconstitutional drug laws now on the books, including all of your unconstitutional search and seizure laws, and your asset forfeiture laws, and your laws that enable your unconstitutional snooping into our bank accounts and cash transactions. Well, I don't know whether to laugh or cry. You people are sick! Conservatives my ass. You people are nothing but a bunch of non-thinking hypocrits! You're a shame and a disgrace to the Republic! And, I, for one, am tired of taking orders from cokeheads and felons! Elect another one and I'll tell you what. I'll be ready for war! It'll be time to take up arms and run the filthy lying bastards out!

Bush is so clever that he's got all the right-wingers thinking he's a liberal. And this strategy is just to garner the swing voters who tend to be lefties. But there's more of them than there are right-wingers so it's a good gamble. Then after he wins the Presidency then he's gonna make a major swing back to the right (he is a conservative, after all), laugh at his liberal supporters and welcome the right-wing back into his compassionate conservative fold. He's so clever that he's just about the first guy on the planet to manage fooling all the people all the time.

Do us all a favor and ban yourself, Jim.
