How to block FR bots/trolls/hecklers that raise your blood pressure.
1) Get Firefox or Google Chrome
2) then go here to install GreaseMonkey (GM)
3) then go here to download/install the GM script called "killfile"
(THAT version has been tweaked for better performance at Free Republic)
After that, just hit [kill] whenever you see a putrid post from a bot/troll/heckler, and never be troubled by them again.

RULE 5: “Ridicule is man’s most potent weapon.” There is no defense. It’s irrational. It’s infuriating. It also works as a key pressure point to force the enemy into concessions.

So, you hate both Obama and Romney, yet the anti-Romney posts far outweigh the anti-Obama posts. Like a chicken coop getting ready to vote for either a fox or a chihuahua, to run the place, and spending all its energy attacking the chihuahua...

To quote a brilliant FReeper

(1) You seem to overlook the shenanigans of Obamination in appointing czars, issuing Exec Orders left and right and basically ignoring BOTH the Constitution AND Congress.
(2) If re-elected, He will screw the US Supreme Court for the rest of our lives and most of our kids; lives, issue Allah only knows what new pile of exec orders, continue to trash the fabric of this once great nation, etc, etc, etc.
(3) What SIGNIFICANT action have you seen from ANY of the last round of tea party supported bozos that got elected, other than the occasional NO vote on some stupid piece of legislation. The utter and absolute corruption so rampant in DC quite simply infects EVERYONE who is part of that monstrosity called the US Federal Government. With recognition of Edmund Burke's prophetic principal about the relationship of power and corruption, may I reword it to fit what we have seen in these latter days of the USA: Power corrupts and ANY SIGNIFICANT amount of power will begin the corruption process, usually not reversible, of most people today beyond any hope of reversal or redemption. (Just review in your own mind for a few moments, the behavior of any member of the & public service sector, from local and county through state and up to federal service, and count up any SIGNIFICANT players who have NOT been corrupted.)
(4) The ONLY thing of ANY significance about the election is to defeat OB or, better yet get him declared ineligible before the election.
(5) And, BTW, OB has set such a horrendous pile of steaming precedents, that I seriously doubt ANY future POTUS will be morally clean enough to resist taking advantage of them, with the possible exception of Sarah Palin.

Official Anti-Catholic Troll Hunter...on the hunt for “Sado-evangelism”

Sunflower, the censoring of a classic.

In society today, images from our past, words and phrases are considered in poor taste. To say or show some of these is downright offensive. How far should we go to keep from offending a person or group of people? Should one change a classic, such as "Huck Finn" to eliminate such words or edit characters from "Gone With the Wind" to be PC? It has happened and very few people know about it.

As I child, one of my goals was to see every Disney feature every made. Before the time of VCRs it was not an easy task. My Dear Departed Father fed into my obsession and would drive me all over Northeast Ohio to see films. In 1968, "Fantasia" [1940] was re-released by the Disney Studios. This feature is visually beautiful, as well as inovative in sound and image. While others remember this movie for the sequence with Mickey Mouse, I was enamored with the "Pastoral Symphony" a fantasy of mythology with flying horses, cherubs and centaurs. It shaped my teen years in Commercial Art school and now screen captures of the characters from the DVD decorate my daughters' rooms.

During the "Pastoral Symphony" there is a scene where a comical Nero-type character rides in on a unicorn donkey. He is escorted by two beautiful African centaurettes. Their horse bodies are zebras. One refills Nero's cup with wine and one cools him with a giant feather fan. They are clearly servants or slaves. I thought they were the only black centaurettes in the movie

In doing research to find pictures to decorate my daughters' rooms, "Sunflower" was revealed to me. As one can see from the pencil drawing above, she is not politically correct for today. She was in scenes of the "Pastoral Symphony", grooming centaurettes for the arrival of the centaurs and following the zebra sequence. She was removed by Disney prior to that 1968 rerelease, so therefore I have never seen this in it's entirety. She was a truly stereotypical character and not needed at all. The cherubs are doing a great job of preparing the centaurettes. However, the screen cuts that Disney did to eliminate Sunflower, yet keep the continuity of the soundtrack, are quite obvious and detract from the beauty of the DVD. According to the Internet Movie Database and The Memory Hole website (who holds the last remaining pictures of this character) Disney denies that Sunflower ever existed.

For political correctness and the African/American community, should Sunflower have been eliminated from the sequence? Of course! However, with the amount of space available on a DVD, the complete sequence should have been included as a special feature. By denying that she ever existed, Disney has altered a classic. It's wrong. A part of our history is gone. How can I teach my children the sins of the past if we sanitize everything?

Those who do not know the past are destined to repeat it.

Too many here can’t wait to unzip their dogma and swing it around in an obnoxious superiority dance.

The Pope on Co-redemptrix
“Yet when asked, in a 2000 interview by Peter Seewald contained in the book God and the World, whether the Church would go along with the desire to solemnly define Mary as Co-redemptrix, Ratzinger’s response doesn’t look good. He says that the title Co-redemptrix “departs to too great an extent from the language of Scripture and of the Fathers and therefore gives rise to misunderstandings” (53). He also says that “for matters of faith, continuity of terminology with the language of Scripture and that of the Fathers is itself an essential element; it is improper simply to manipulate language” (54). “

Defective churches

In fact the Spirit of Christ has not refrained from using them as instruments of salvation, whose value derives from that fullness of grace and of truth which has been entrusted to the Catholic Church
