Lost Freepers: What ever happened to FReepers such as...
She’s a good person, but went off the rails against FR. I’m assuming because I flatly refused to toe the GOP-e line with abortionist/statist Romney.
I didn’t doubt her on that, she seemed to have a ring of authenticity to me. But, you never can tell...
“Willie Green aka choochoo Willie”
Willie Green gave me my tagline. He replied to something sarcastic I said to him with something along the lines of “do you have compulsive smart-ass disorder or something?” (I guess he didn’t like me very much, LOL)
Anywho, I kind of like it, it fits, so I made a tag line out of it.
I think eventually Jim put him on the last train to zotsville.
yeah..I was around then....I think it all centered on Bush Jr. the first time around....don’t know if her site is still around...
Hey...what ever became of that guy Revolting cat!?
Pit bulls? You got to be talking about Chet99. That was too easy.......
It’s a shame. Some just haven’t awakened to what is really going on.
One Who Knows...aka OWK.
FReepers have always been known for doing research and digging for facts. They can sniff out stuff that’s just unbelievable!
Allegra is 100% genuine and a better person than most people realize or give her credit for. She has spent more time in the dust bowl than many OGA ‘operators’ and she does it by choice.
I wish I could find a picture I took of a sign one day, outside a small pharmacy in Salem, MA...it said “Allegra is Here!”
I pulled over when I saw it, snapped a shot of it and posted it to her...:)
The problem with logical discussion is that no one wants to think themselves ‘illogical’. So you get garden variety unsupportable BS hammered to death in the name of logic. Case in point, the recent ‘abortion for votes scam several ‘freepers’ were running on behalf of the GOP.
To them, it was completely ‘logical’ to give ground on the abortion issue if that meant building a bigger tent for the 2014 elections.
Now if anyone can explain how it’s logical to kill babies for votes I’m all ears. But you can’t twll them any more than tell Dem/libs that ‘No, this is contrary to everything we believe in and so is not logical for us to adopt as a position’.
“We”, you see, were the illogical ones. Now apply this to many of the discussions you see here. Plenty of infiltration by leftist/moderates shouting down people sticking to their guns in the name of ‘logic’ and ‘pragmatism’....which are two very different things....which also escapes them entirely.
I posted with him on a start up forum maybe a couple of years ago. I believe it was True Blue Liberty or something like that, but neither of us lasted very long. Don't know where he went from there.
Willie had much experience with smartass disorder, he looked at one every morning in the mirror.
He was warned in no uncertain terms by Jim but just couldn’t be nice and that’s what got him the Zot. :-)
Great tag line!
Heh, I agree. I likened logical discussion on FR to a bell shaped curve, and there are those tapering “tails” on either side that make you look askance at some discussions.
As in...”Ok. This thread is over for me, I can’t take it seriously anymore...”
Kind of like the Internet in miniature. You have to have your filter active all the time.
I wish all the old posters were still here. So many good posters and thinkers have disappeared. I used to love TheGreatSatan. Not sure if he got banned or just went away.
