I think it's gonna be tough for you to stay away, Tommy. Freepers are the gift that just keeps on giving. Still, if you do manage a short break--and nobody deserves one more than you do-- more power to you. Enjoy whichever holiday you choose to celebrate!

There is no amount of money that could get me into a Freeper thread about the murder of 20 children, their teachers and their principal.


You have more spleen than any one I've ever met, Tommy.

And I'll apologize in advance for skipping that particular Obsession. I just can't do it.

Happiest of Holidays to you!

I've already accidentally run across a YouTube trying to make a case that Newton was a false flag operation.

Tying in with the more serious threads of late, part of the violence some apparently teach isn't guns just to defend yourself, but guns to finish the person off. Even in stand your ground states, once the threat is removed, you can't keep firing. But the MN case (and the people commenting on it) shows is that the guns aren't to remove a threat, but to extract revenge.

Of course, one of my relatives has in the last couple of days posted an article from wnd saying a clerk in Hawaii has a sworn statement that he was told there was no Obama birth certificate. Of course, he hasn't worked for Hawaii since 2008. But that doesn't stop the echo.

And there's a photo floating around facebook showing the faces of those the repubs have put in as the head of committeess (a bunch of old white men) and corresponding montage of those put in charge by the Dems (a diverse group).

I don't get item 1 of the petition at all.

Wasn't Obama the target of the conservatives because he didn't intervene in Libya and didn't nuke em after the attack on the consulate ?

RE" Prudence, one would think, if not generosity of spirit, should impel Democrats to be magnanimous in victory. Romney did receive about 48 percent of the vote. A little modesty among the winners would seem to be in order."

Ya mean like how civil the repubs are after an election ? Like 8 years of "He's not my president." Like the still continuing slurs against Obama including the birthers ?

Or like the statements made about the N**gger when Obama made a statement on the Newton shootings ? http://deadspin.com/5968935/take-that-nigger-off-the-tv-we-wanna-watch-football-idiots-respond-to-nbc-pre+empting-sunday-night-football

Seems everytime the Freepers call for civility it is only one way.

We request that Barack Obama be impeached for the following reasons. [...]

Just running with that... Suppose Obama agreed and chose to impeach himself. How would he do that? By one of those dreaded executive orders? Could we then add: (5) Usurping the House's power to impeach by impeaching himself.


Kibitzers - maybe he can make a recess impeachment.
