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.
That's why I've got the coffee cup.
As long as I hold on to my preciousssss.. all will be well! ;-)
What this site needs is more declarative posts with bad grammar and lots of double exclamation points.
I miss the days of Achmed Villa.
i will second that
And it's always entertaining! :)
Jim, is Romney an islamist?
Please take one hour to watch the video here:
We must vote out 0bama.
i am surprised you weren’t banned
Never got it bud.
But if this person made this post even 5 years ago, the mods would have escorted him off.
My charming persona has not changed in more than a decade.
So much for the "no personal attacks in posts".
Like when you cried about me to Management without pinging me? Like that?
Actually, yes. Don’t take my word for it though, I’ll refer you to the National Association for Down Syndrome:
“Down syndrome is usually identified at birth or shortly thereafter. Initially the diagnosis is based on physical characteristics that are commonly seen in babies with Down syndrome. These include low muscle tone, a single crease across the palm of the hand, a slightly flattened facial profile and an upward slant to the eyes. The diagnosis must be confirmed by a chromosome study (karyotype).”
Did you vote for Nixon or Ford? Then you aren’t pure enough, for they were both pro choice. And Nixon was the biggest big government guy of our lifetimes, his EPA is still destroying our freedoms to this day. You have allowed the vilest comments on this site for the last year, including many by you, and then you preach how pure you are, and you wonder why noone comments anymore. You have given over control of the site to a bunch of keyboard commandos that wouldn’t dare say what they say in person, and then hide behind their version of religion as an excuse. It is really sad what you have done to what was once the best sight on the internet. Good Luck on keeping this sight going with the same 30 posters commenting repeatedly, oh wait thats what they have been doing for months. Goodby and good luck with getting Obama reelected, my children and grandchildren don’t deserve it, but apparently a few on here will feel better about their “principles” .
I had occasion to post this Jim Croce reminder back in '08...there was a similar situation then which JR and FR survived quite well. So, free of charge is a little suggestion....
You don't tug on Superman's cape
You don't spit into the wind
You don't pull the mask of that old Lone Ranger
And you don't mess around with Jim..
The GOP didn't back people that couldn't win. There is only so much money to go around, and you don't spend money on races you can't win. That's the way it goes. That idiot in Delaware comes to mind.
Your statement does not make any sense! On one hand you say ‘no one here wants Obama reelected’ and in the same breath, say you will not vote for Romney. You do realize that it’s a net sum game at the end. We get either Obama or Romney - and no matter how you spin it, it’s either Obama or Romney.
So I ask you, nay, I challenge you - to stop doing/saying/writing towards an Obama victory.
Honestly, I’d hate to see only these good freepers leave - I will not be one of them, as I’ve invested too much time (and some money) since 2004. But you can’t jettison more than half, if not more, of your loyal readers and expect to survive and continue to be a leader of the conservative movement.
I humbly ask you to reconsider the path you have taken.
That’s great. He’s good during the Freepathons. Whoop-de-do. I guess that gives him a free pass?
I don’t care. Insulting potential donors doesn’t seem like the best business model to me. Insulting longtime FReepers doesn’t seem to be the best of ideas either.
wtc911 is a friend of mine. He became a friend when I was in Iraq and although I’m not on much since then, I’d like to think we are still friends now. Insulting friends and potential donors again doesn’t strike me as the way to go.
People left and are leaving because of people using "personal attacks" which is in violation of FR Rules. If those rules got me suspended last May then why doesn't it apply to attack thugs today?
Can a moderator please explain this to me?
“I want the Freedom on A Conservative site to bash Romney all I want without being told Im a traitor for not voting for Romney.”
I want the freedom on a “conservative site” to say I’d reluctantly vote for Romney (or anyone else) in hopes of avoiding four more years of the destructive bastard Obama without being accused of being a “Romney supporter”, a “troll”, a “Romneybot”, or “campaigning for Romney”. I think that’s an equally reasonable desire.
Stooge, when did I insult Jim? I asked questions he doesn’t want to answer.
So? The answer as to why Romney is different than McCain is Lehman Bros.
People now seem to forget that McCain was leading in the polls when Lehman Brothers fell apart. When that happened, the economic world ended and it was curtains for McCain. Before Lehman Brothers, McCain had the upper hand.
There’s no Lehman Brothers to save Obama this time.
Well, if you don’t like my replies, please stop posting to me. Because my pro-life position is unchangeable and you’re going to get a very similar reply from me on every tack you take. And FR will be fine, this I promise you. Every time one of these non-conservative abortionist brouhahas come up, the call goes out for FR to get in line or fail and yet another anti-freeper site is born. Anti-freeper sites come and go, but FR lives on. We may suffer a setback, but what doesn’t kill us only makes us stronger. We will continue to attract like-minded pro-life, pro-family, pro-limited government conservatives.
The calls to elect an abortionist, homosexualist statist GOP elitist, thereby forever ending the Republican party as a conservative force, only strengthens my resolve NOT to.
Rebellion is on!!
I will tell you how evil, insane and out of control Obama is. It doesn’t matter if we have the SCOTUS, the House and Senate he’ll just appoint more czars, more executive orders and if Scalia dies, good bye Constitution!!!
Thank you for your opinion.
Good post....FR is not going to avoid the division in our country...and take a stand it should. Those who want to ride the fence will topple one side or the other, just a matter of how much they feel the impact.
Hope reined in Obamas campaign....now we see there was no hope for the changes thought. Some Freepers are doing likewise with supporting Romney with their vote....hoping he might be different....he won’t be....he’ll just present a prettier picture under the deception he is well known for.
We live in weird times...uncertainty every day abound. That is not going to change by voting for Romney....the mask he wears now will be over our entire governance and we’ll not know the outcome til it hits people in the face...and it will be too late.
Well seeing that Jim Robinson and the Mods completely refuse to respond to my post in #495 proves your point and my point.
I was suspended in May and these people spew vitriol ten times worse than what I said and nothing! Not going to bother pinging anyone else. Clearly, pointing out hypocrisy in regards to the site's rules are ignored...
Sorry, I’m not going to vote for or support an abortionist, homosexualist, statist. Period.
I’m not sure you “know what 0bama is about”.
Please take the time to watch the video linked on this thread:
I know exactly what Obama is about...Romney will simply follow suit but present a different face with verbaige that will deceive and fool those uninformed about him and his agenda.
You really are a jacka$$ aren’t you? How many beers so far today?
Yeah, we have a lot of characters on FR. humblegunner is one of them. But he’s our humblegunner.
#1 Check my sign-up date. Earlier than yours.
#2. How many FReepers have you seen sign off their opus with THIS (OK, lets see if the slavering attack dogs will now begin to rip me to shreds.)?
If this site contributes to Obama being reelected, I'm not sure I can ever forgive it.
Exactly how, since you can't possibly know the effect FR would have can you determine FR "contributes to Obama being reelected?" Crystal ball? Ouija board? Reading DU?
Unfortunately, your post makes several assumptions. Back them up, please.
There was a time when people on this site relished the chance to embarrass and destroy socialist arguments and "outside influences" through rational argument. It seems anymore people around here are afraid to even read an opinion not totally in lockstep with their own.
No problem this will be my last post.
You don’t answer my questions so how can I like your responses?
You just drone on and on totally unaware of your surroundings, that’s cool. Your stuck on LIFE right?, whatever the heck that means. I guess it beats stuck on stupid.
Living in the past is not a guarantee of future success btw.
This thread is the very evidence of why this site is no longer the conservative site of choice to donate to or post in.This site is no longer conservative.Good FReepers are sick of the gestapo IN clique that sickly controls and attacks anyone that does not tow their every thought.Many are afraid to post.It was out of hand months ago and now it is just down right abusive hateful behavior. They ping each other to bully someone and then ping a special list to WATCH the zot? If the time spent that they waste doing this was put towards exposing fast and furious or REAL activism this site would be booming again.
I watched Perry,Bachmann,Santorum get trashed by the IN CROWD CLIQUE.And now the IN clique gestapo ping list has the audacity to act as if Newt Gingrich is any different than Romney?Both Gingrich and Romney are reformed RINO’s.AKA GOP e.
Have you ever noticed the IN crowd clique never posts in other conservative threads? Why does it seem like they post in the FReepathon thread with cutesy graphics while they are attacking like banshees from hell in all other threads?
I am sick of the long winded speeches saying Romney is pro abortion when three pro life, damned good, conservative candidates were trashed ON THIS FORUM like DU trolls trash conservatives.Go look at Romney’s official issues.He is pro life now.Just like Gingrich is pro-life now.They both reformed supposedly.What makes one better than the other?And don’t waste time posting long posts with links of how evil and bad Romney is. I could do the same exact thing with Gingrich and the facts would be found in this forums archives.
And IIRC, the post previous to that one was in 2002.
Ok, all else fails so you go for the insult. Typical.
I’ll give you this. you give new meaning to “can’t see the forest for the trees!”
The rebellion you are seeing on this thread is not against you or your position on Mitt.
The rebellion is against those here who clothe themselves in your position and villify any freeper who sees a different path to saving the country.
The Mitt thing is just the most recent cause celebre for these folks. Before that it was Newt or Santorum or Cain or Bachmann or Palin (where it started). They hide in your shadow and attack those who they feel you would disagree with - sometimes in the vilest manner (accusations of NAMBLA membership, death wishes...). They ping their compadres and it becomes a relentless mugging.
These freepers seem to feel empowered as long as they can say - "The boss says this" or "This is Jim's site and he says...". They feel that their hand will not be slapped, regardless of how flagrantly and frequently they violate posting rules.
It is these freepers, not your opinions, that have driven good freepers away.
I pinged those who have agreed with me on this thread. They are all good, long-term freepers and there are a couple with whom I have never communicated before in 11 years here.
It would be a mis-reading if you were to take this as a personal affront. It is not. It is a revolt against those who act in your name, to the ultimate detriment of your site.
Would have been nice to see you say that statement to me when your mods suspended me in May for standing up to thugs on the American Idol thread. Good ole' Silent_Johnny another prize who can go mock whoever he wants without a word said.
Why are rules for some not rules for others?
onyx, as I stated to you in our correspondences this is what I'm angered about as you me and Jim supported the same candidates and in our primaries we never voted for Romney, but every time I bring up the thugs who trash people and roam free everything goes back to Romney someone I didn't vote for, don't support, don't "like" on FB or Twitter or whatever stupid site.
The blatant hypocrisy letting someone attack me, when I was suspended for fighting back against Silent_Johnny a notorious cyber thug.
You all send emails expressing that you care about me, well where the heck is the support when I am showing you what I'm talking about?
Rebelling against both candidates? I just cannot do anything or participate in anyway, shape or form that helps o bama the mad Marxist get re-elected. I hope that you understand that. I know you read the FR threads Jim and I know that you know I have never been a fan of Romney’s, my past posts since the day I joined speak for themselves.
I will never promote Romney on FR, and never have, you have made your feelings clear. It’s your forum and I respect that. I hope you understand if I take a time out and spend my time elsewhere until after the elections. I feel it is my duty to do everything in my power to get that tyrant out of our White House.
I understand Romney is not a conservative. I get it. However I just happen to think what’s in there now is 100X worse.
Yup. Sock puppet.
Mocking another cyber thug on FR named Silent_Johnny who can dish it out but runs to the mods when he gets a response.
Is that really all you have? “Thank you for your opinion.”
Weak sauce. I guess so long as people are good during Freepathons they can insult just about anyone. That’s just awesome.
