Everyone please send whatever you are able to, whether it is $10, $100 or $1,000+. The DUmmies, Morons, Kos Kiddies and that crew are laughing up their sleeves. Jim may have to make this site members only or allow ads. Better for us to just help with what we can. Maybe you can donate as a memorial for a lost loved one, a servicemember who never made it home or was disabled defending our country. Perhaps you'd like to give to keep free discussion alive and to show them that we're not knuckling under. I'm sure a well thought out or prayerful meditation will lead you to see the need and how you can help. If every registered FReeper and our lurkers would each just help out with a fin or a sawbuck, or better yet a Ben Franklin, we could put this to bed and get on with the conservative cause.
Your instructions are as pompous and vacuous as your self-perceived authority. Have a lovely evening sloshing in your Team's posts.
Nice one, lonestar. Can you be any nastier, please? Go any lower? I see that you’re already circling the drain down there in the gutter of vitriol where you’re spitting and sniping just to be a pest.
It won’t be easy, but do give it a try. I need another laugh this evening.
In case that you haven’t noticed, we are a circle of dear friends, those other women pinged to this post, and one guy. That’s something you just don’t have, isn’t it.
Take your venom elsewhere, for it ill becomes you here.
Got a pic?
That's because it's not.
"Pics or it didn't happen" -- I commented at the time about how the entire episode was a set-up by the MSM and how well Cain had *avoided* the cheap shot, while threading the needle of making credible the accusations of "Uncle Tom" that the left had prepared for him, had he blown the episode off entirely.
Well I guess I sure stand corrected...I never looked at abortion as a Holocaust... but it certainly is...egg on my face.
The look my wife saw wasn't someone saddened by letting political supporters down: it was very much a look of one of the Dryads in C.S. Lewis's The Last Battle shuddering in agony as its host tree, miles away, was being chopped down with axes.
Palin was *scared*.
Principles matter? Are you kidding. They are so fluid here, Im not even sure they exist. Many of the Go Newt! crowd were flaming him as a liberal they couldn’t vote for as late as last December
Amen to that...I recall specifically commenting that I supported Newt and was dang near run out of Dodge.
Let me get this completely straight here so we can put what you are claiming into perspective. Palin had done none of the serious things necessary to prepare for a presidential campaign. Fox News didn't think she was running for President and didn't suspend her. Palin ultimately declines to run for President. Palin offers an explanation which has nothing whatsoever to do with being "scared" of some mysterious threat. Palin then goes on to continue her job as commentator/analyst (earning her lots of money) which she uses as a platform to attack Obama and the Democrats regularly on the most popular cable news channel. And you are contending she is, well, lying about her reasons for not running. That her decision was because she was "scared" like some Dryads in a CS Lewis book. And when I try to point out that there is utterly, absolutely no evidence to support your theory and offer a more reasonable alternative for why Palin might have been hesitant to announce she wasn't running - you call me a troll. Which, by the way, is the very type of behavior and name calling that many members of FR were complaining about on this very thread.
You offered a conspiracy theory backed only by your wife's assertion that Palin looked like a "scared" Dryad from some novel. I told you that was silly and no evidence exists to support it. And you attack me? Your wife compares some expression Sarah had to a Dryad from a fantasy book, and this you expect me to take seriously absent ANY other evidence? Do you realize how utterly ridiculous you sound?
I'm going to make this as plain as I can. Sarah Palin did not decline to run for President because she was threatened and scared. She's a big girl and a lot tougher than that. You give her very little credit here. If someone really threatened her, Palin is more likely to do just the opposite of what they were demanding. It is far more likely that you just can't accept that Palin didn't run for President when you expected her to do so, and for that to make sense in your world requires you accept or invent some silly excuse about her being "scared" of some unknown threat. You know who is actually scared? You. You are scared to accept you were wrong about Palin's intentions, and you just can't admit it to yourself or anyone else.
LOL! And you just made it classic-y-er...!
Is your sole job here to post stupid pics in response to other Freepers comments? Is that what you bring to the party?
Don't feel bad about that, caww. Many people simply do not think of it, but once they are told, they begin to grasp the enormity of the aftermath of Roe v. Wade.
Nice try. You didn't read my first piece (Sarah Palin in "The Undecided," or, Only Her Halibut Knows for Sure) (which I explicitly posted TO YOU on this thread) which pre-dated her withdrawal from the race, that her goal was to further the goals of the Tea Party, and at that point her decision to run would be based on what she adjudged best for the Tea Party.
My feelings about this were confirmed by the OTHER piece I posted to you on this thread, (Sarah Ringbearer, or, A Gift From Frodo) in which I said that the best thing to do on her withdrawing from the race, was not to bemoan the fact, but to take up the mantle ourselves as the grass roots.
And you are contending she is, well, lying about her reasons for not running.
She wasn't lying: she implied it was for the sake of her family, and their opinion.
As far as the evidence: I'll trust my wife's judgement over some anonymous Perry operative/troll any day. My wife noted the abrupt change in Palin's tone and body English: her confidence, ebullience, all...gone. Just like that.
Women know how to read other women.
Do you realize how utterly ridiculous you sound?
I don't sound ridiculous: What IS ridiculous is your accusations against me, which have the air of desperation: the more so as they are soundly refuted by articles I posted publicly on FR, a few days before her announcement, and another one I emailed to another FReeper to post for me (I was at work) the night of her announcement.
As far as calling you a troll: yep, and proudly so.
Anyone can search back to your posting history to within a week or so of Palin's announcement where you called Palin's supporters all kinds of vile things. Or your posts where you personally mocked Palin for leaving the governorship. It looked a LOT like a victory dance -- presumably, from your subsequent support of Perry, in the vain hope that he would then sweep into the White House.
And now you show up on this thread to try to start personal attacks and flame wars once again.
(Compare that to my post #1645 this thread, which attempts to address the root cause of the problems on FR, rather than settle personal scores.)
I will say this... romney and the gop/e have divided FR and Conservatives more than obama and the dims ever could. That in itself is a giant red flag. GOD bless and thanks for understanding.
