You tried what, to disparage Free Republic.
If it was truly that bad, which I don't recall, why didn't you hit the abuse button. You and I both know there are people here that get out of line but I know and believe you do too that Jim Robinson and the Mods do not abide such things.
Did you bother to contact JimRob or the Mods about these things. Hindsight is 20/20 but if you witnessed them then why didn't you complain?
Since when did the the Truth become disparaging?
Looks like Orwell was right:During times of universal deceit, telling the truth becomes a revolutionary act
What Kartographer said was true - I’ve seen may posts about how the Sandy victims can suck eggs and there have been stated hopes they really suffer. After going through Katrina, I wouldn’t wish even the worst Democrat ill above and beyond what Mother Nature has already provided. It demeans us all on FR when folks make bile-laden posts because they can’t ever get politics out of it and put humanity into it - it makes us sound as rabid as the Dims on DU.
