(maybe my thread killing skill will finally serve a useful porpoise ;-)
(or not )-;
Your dad was wise.
You are welcome.
I believe in honor where honor is due.
“accused Perry of being gay”....
hah. That was one of the nicer things said about him.
Get ready for a re-do four years from now, LOL!
Well, thanks for the apology but you are not on my list of the vile posters against Perry.
So you must not have been too bad.
Well, this has been an interesting thread.
Some posters were over the top in demeaning the fearless leader, and he was a little over the top in demeaning some of us
He accused me of being pro abortion and he should have known better. Pro life issues are my main cultural cause. I even educated the people in the grocery store line where they were doing a fund raiser for breast cancer by telling them the truth about the Susan B. Anthony bunch.
I guess he got that impression because I am voting for Romney.
Pro-life is one of the main reasons I am voting for Romney, although there are many others.
We have 4 really old judges on the Supreme Court. I don’t want Obama naming replacements.
I don’t think anyone really thinks you’re pro-abortion, Altura. The thread was a long one, and it got heated. I was glad to see it cool down and become more conversational; you could feel the tension sort of draining out.
I know you and I differ on the Romney thing. I know you aren’t a huge Romney supporter, that you’re voting for him to get Obama out. I understand that. I’ve waited a long time to go into that booth and vote against him. But it’s a spiritual thing with me-—not a tantrum, not a whim. I’ve been praying about this, and I just can’t pull the lever for Romney. I hope we’ll be friends after this.
God bless y'all, sir !
Thanks,onyx—that one is going right on my mantle!
The UN? Obama will likely be a UN employee after he serves his false electoral term. He is just greasing his rails.It will be a long time before we are free of this liberal fascist altogether.Narcists long for world domination.The narcist ego knows NO bounds.
I didn’t figure on 20.
You are truly vile.
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.
Albert Einstein said many things... but one thing that he said was, “All things are relative... some more so than others”.
I guess because I’ve done so much research on the Holocaust it never struck me as Abortion deaths surpassing those deaths. Maybe too because I don’t see these wee ones having a chance to fight back. ....they are in what is suppose to be the safest place within their mother, which ends up a death chamber instead.
I’ve actually stood on the main street opposing Abortion with my sign held high...and fought hard to prevent two pregnant young girls not to take the life of their babies. In the end they did...one with the Pastor of her church, and her mother, driving her to the clinic! It was a fierce battle.....a month or so later she was killed, decapitated, by an on coming car she ran into while running down an embankment....
....The other also aborted after a battle for the life of the child....thereafter she would find photos of the babies father as an infant in her car with a note:...”what could have been”....
So there is always a great deal of before and after events never anticipated surrounding these decisions and the aftermath of these killings.
MONEY BOMB TIME!!!
Paging Zimmerman. Please pick up the White courtesy phone ...
i remember that that disillusioned me about FR also
Not voting for the GOP candidate WILL, at the very least, not cancel out a vote for Obama. Why would anyone want to be friends with someone wouldn't even do that to save the U.S. of A.?
You are right
“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.”
Which is why they change their minds. Impossible not to when they see it for what it really is, at whatever moment they open their eyes.
Well said. Very well said.
Any business that was conducted like this board has come to be would soon go belly up.
It will be interesting to see if your sound observations lead to changes that must be made.
mnehring, I agree and I think this is the best thread that could have been written at this stage in the game. It is time to decide what avenue Mr. Robinson wants FR to go. It is simply going to be a place for the same voice with no area for another opinion, then i guess that is what is what it will continue to be. I don’t see how that helps things just by repeating the same thing over and over again.
YOu know someone on here was talking about Reagan. And I thought how the world has changed in the time he has been in office. At that time communism was still a fighting word and it still is to me a dirty word. But now, we have a white black RED marxist phony president and no one seems to care except the ones that are middle to right. We keep expecting another Reagan and someone like that is once in a lifetime experience. I am not giving up, but by golly I am not giving money to be called names or zotted because i don’t repeat exactly what you or anyone says. It is Mr. Robinson’s project here, it really is awesome in the use of of it, there is none other like it, but my gosh. Was it REagan that said not every conservatives think alike on everything.
