Freeper regrets

I have a few regrets, looking over my life - you'd be lying to yourself if you didn't. Mostly these are professional or romantic, as one might expect.

But if one ever doubted that (despite recent electoral success) Freepers represent an...idiosyncratic subset of Americans, one need only gaze upon this thread.

refermech starts what will become a theme of women troubles.
Never trust a woman in matters concerning birth control.
Ladies...it appears max americana is single!
too many regrets. I wished I saved my relationship with my 4th GF in college. She was the one that got away and would have married and settled down with her.

I’m a dog, you see ;)
Chickensoup was insufficiently self-absorbed.
What kind of everythings?

I would not have focused so much on other people.
For a 'conservative', Chickensoup really seems unsatisfied with responsibility.
I would have been a bit less independent.

I would have spent more time on fun things instead of always being the provider.

No one really loves the provider, they love the fun one.
daler is another who is unsatisfied and frustrated:
I wouldn't have stayed in the same crummy job for 20 years in the interest of "security."

My advice to young people is, while being logical and thoughtful about it, to always chase your dream(s).

Life doesn't give you a mulligan.
Drew68 is one of many who try and claim no regrets.
Not a thing.

I'm in a good place right now. Every mistake I've ever made has led me here.
Organic Panic has another common trend - getting rich quick via Apple stock:
Buy gold
Bought property
Invested in Apple

Then I would have been retired about 30 years already.
jmacusa:
Stayed in college.
Mr. Jeeves  has a lot of dreams, all involving getting rich quick, and avoiding his unsuccessful attempts to get rich quick.
The list is large - all choices I had in front of me at one time, and made the wrong ones:

- Would have worked much harder in high school and tried to get into Stanford in 1982, majoring in Computer Science.

- Would have gone to work for Microsoft in the late Eighties when I had a chance to do so.

- Would have bought vast quantities of Apple stock at its lower points before the return of Steve Jobs.

- Never would have bought Las Vegas real estate in the last few years before 2008.

- Never would have left my job in 2008 to resume my consulting career.

- Never would have opened a retail store in a major mall.

Things look pretty good going forward, though, especially since Hillary will not be President. I'll try to avoid making any more massive blunders from here on out. :)
Ellendra was forced to quit school, and so could't get rich quick. Also she has had multiple weird health issues that turned out to be nothing...
I would have studied Medical Coding in college, and then after I got my degree I would have studied Accounting. That way when I was forced to quit school I would have had a fallback plan in place.

I would have waited 6 months before buying my land. The seller went bankrupt, and the lot next to mine sold for 1/3rd what I paid, for the same size property.

I would have gone to the hospital right away when I got sick that summer, instead of waiting until I collapsed and had to be carried. It turned out to be a mild infection, but the symptoms were so subtle I tried to power through them.

I would have gone to the chiropractor when I started having dizzy spells in 2008. Instead, it took almost 2 years and tens of thousands of dollars in tests, when it was a simple misalignment in my neck that was causing the problem. Even then, we discovered the cause by accident. None of the doctors I saw caught it.

I would have driven to Cleveland when I lost my voice in 2011. I was mute for 3 years, and went through more tests and doctors, got yelled at and accused of making it up, only to eventually discover that it was a simple problem, that a specialist at the Cleveland Clinic was able to fix in an hour.

I would never have trusted my father for anything.
InkStone exemplifies another common Freeper rout - Jesusing all up in the place:
I wish I would have given my life to Christ as a young man, instead of waiting so long...

Because I failed to do so, I made mistakes that caused a lifetime of heartache and regret for myself, and many others.
shhrubbery! blames everything bad on not being Christian enough:
Would've not let myself be influenced by the evil Left, back in the terrible '60s and '70s.

Would've stayed a faithful Christian, instead of letting myself be tempted to do the trendy thing.

Everything bad that happened in my life was a consequence straying from traditional Judeo-Christian morality.
Obbiee hints at some problems with the kids. This will become a trend.
I would live fully for the one who died for me. Every morning of every day.
I would have instilled in my children a love for Christ that no college education could question.
BelleAl's Christianity tortures her because her kids didn't stick with it. They say the best faiths make you miserable!
2 of my three kids have turned their backs on Christ. Knowing now that the world they grew up in was so vastly different than mine of the 1970s, I would have adapted my parenting accordingly. I used the parenting model of my parents where our faith was supported in our local culture and in college. It’s a greater fight than I knew - We were involved in a local church and walked the Christian path as a family. It just wasn’t enough in today’s broken world.

Not sharing this core belief with two so precious to me is my greatest heartbreak. It grieves me daily.
ZinGirl thinks misery builds character.
It sounds terrible...but we wouldn't have cared about the kids' "feelings" so much. It did them no favors. We see that now. We really thought it was the right thing to do. In a large part, perhaps it was. However, did we raise part of a generation who needed validation at every turn? Or, despite success, did it seem empty without "peer" approval?

WW1 and WW2 sucked, but it sure created some people with character, strength, and fortitude.
Poor mom4melody's unfulfillment has lead her to yearn for things no proper Freeper women should want - a career and no kids.
No to marriage, no to kids, more on my education and career
Harmless Teddy Bear's life is legit a bit tragic, and I guess adoption wasn't thought of.
I would have met my husband earlier. We were about two miles apart of years, probably passed each other in the store and other places multiple times and never met.

I would have ignored the people telling me to get a white collar job and gotten my certification as a master diesel mechanic.

I would have ignored that stupid OB-GYN who told me the problems I was having were normal and gotten one who knew what he was doing. Then our children would have had a chance to live.

That is pretty much it.

The third item is what I really regret. The rest is just life.

And God has given me a pretty good life.
ThunderSleeps regrets not having a threesome, which is kinda normal, I guess.
I had talked to a Marine Corps recruiter several times and almost signed up. Looking back across 35 years...wish I had.

If that's a little too corny for anyone, probably my second biggest regret is not saying "yes" to the two lovely ladies that propositioned me (at a party, not on a street corner) with a 3-some. I was too much of a good wingman, a buddy of mine had a tremendous crush on one of them. In retrospect, he never would've known, heck, he ended up marrying someone else anyway...
YogicCowboy, as he does, regrets women are such bitches.
I will be candid:

I would have refused to believe young women who called themselves Christians who wanted to marry a spiritually-minded man.

As an ordained minister, I have witnessed time after time how Church Girls choose the Bad Boys over the Good Guys.

I was a Good Guy. I was never a Bad Boy. I have never been drunk. I have never used drugs. I have never fornicated.

I was told numerous times by such a Christian woman that I was the most honorable man that she had ever known - yet such a woman rarely would date me even once, much less twice.
...
Meanwhile, I remain an adult virgin, since my profession of faith denies me fornication as an outlet.

I live in a culture that mocks virginity, especially in a male. (My virility was mocked - both behind my back, and to my face - by some of the above pew warmers, when they realized that I was actually chaste.)
jumpingcholla34's marriage has longevity, but doesn't sound so hot.
I'm 70 now. I've made some major screw-ups, but most big decisions have turned out all right. I try to leave the past where it lies.

But, one thing I might have done is to persuade my wife to be a frugal person, as she was at the start of our marriage. Now, I see that I have enough money to satisfy all of my modest needs for the rest of my life, but not enough to satisfy her needs. So, I keep working and worrying about money. That seems crazy.
right way right regrets not blaming more things on Obama.
In 2007 I decided to make a career shift and left a long term employer for greener grass. Then 2008 hit and diabetes and I found myself back at the same employer again, I was ecstatic, then Obama was elected and I was laid off. I bounced through 6 Jobs during this Obamanation period.

Much has been my own fault but, I also blame much on the spooked Obamanation economy and employers afraid to make total commitments to a diabetic employee because of Obamacare.

Wisconsin court: Teens in Slender Man case should be tried as adults

Two twelve-year-olds killed someone due to some kind of fascination with Internet meme slenderman. Horrible. But trying twelve-year-olds as adults is not justice. Freepers, though, are always down to be unthinkingly tough on crime. After all, Freepers often speak about revenge as a legitimate use of state power.

Boogieman does not see any sign of mental illness here:
Sorry, I don’t buy the whole “delusional” excuse. 12 year olds are old enough to know crap like that is not real, and certainly two 12 year old brains working together would know better.
Grimmy thinks this will only encourage other twelve-year-old ritualistic murderers:
All this mollycoddling of “youths” that do violent crimes has done no thing other than to increase the frequency with which youngsters commit violent crimes.

Never too young to learn about repercussions.
Drango keeps things simplistic:
12 year olds are not adults, but they are evil.
definitelynotaliberal thinks childhood drawings were a sign the parents should have seen, and is ready to diagnose:
Both parents encouraged the Geyser girl to indulge her Slenderman obsession. Her father bragged on his Facebook page that his munchkin drew Slenderman on restaurant napkins, etc.. The mother says that the father is schizophrenic and that they expected that “Mogo” might become schizoid herself down the road.

In my estimation, she needs to be locked up for decades, at least 25 years, and needs to be closely monitored after that.
BBell may not have heard but mental institutions are a thing these days, and asylums are universally regarded as horrorshows best consigned to the past.
These two need mental help and close monitoring. Prison is only going to make them worse and they will get out eventually. Prisons were not meant to be mental institutions but that is what they have turned into.

Bring back the asylums.

I recall doing a systematic evaluation of Newspaper articles on political matters in regards the ‘politicians are all the same’ argument. The NYT was one of the nearly score of papers I tracked. While bias was expected, I was astounded at how they would selectively edit things, and often provide only the Democrat description of what the Republicans were saying without any quotations at all for the other side. Hearings that there were transcripts of, were ended when the relevant response came and the next words completely dismantled the point of the article.

Just awful.
Trump_vs_Evil_Witch
Very serious, the CIA using domestic propaganda through the Washington Post, CNN, Washington Times, Wall Street Journal to undermine the authority of the President of the United States...

If there is any truth to the claim that Obama signed an Executive Order authorizing the CIA to become involved in domestic propaganda & disinformation operations it would explain the current barrage of FAKE NEWS President Donald Trump is facing.

President Trump needs to issue an EO that strictly sanctions all federal agencies from manipulation of the domestic media.... the global socialist conspirators are very accomplished at soft coups through deliberate distortion of information and their agents are well imbedded by the CIA in the MSM....

President Trump needs to be advised, speak to this & take action....
Angels27
What a shit show is country is now.

I am actually at the point to where I wish Hillary would have won. I have actually come to believe there is no way for Trump to succeed with 60% of the American people opposed to him and the entire congress unwilling to work with him.

This country is going down in flames fast. Id rather it had crashed and burned under Hillary instead of Trump.

The horror of giltter

Some congressman got glitterbombed for being pro life. Freepers, who have no doubt already forgotten about this minor headline nevertheless hastened to blow this amusingly out of proportion:

OKSooner knows this is serious:
Somebody needs to go to jail. Glitter can really mess people’s eyes up if it gets in them.
RginTN blames the media for minimizing this huge story:
I’m sure the Media will be demanding Democrats denounce this violent act, right????
Crim doesn't understand how spring-loaded glitterbombs work:
I see little little difference between that and a mail bomb expept for the level of explosion.
exit82 calls terrorism:
Basically a terrorist attack — the intent is to intimidate.

The message is subtle but unmistakable — “next time it wont be glitter but instead something harmful”


Exactly right.

And this should be prosecuted as such.

If a right winger did this, you know it would be.
Lurker wants some right-wing terrorism:
Conservatives don’t do this kind of stupid s**t.

Perhaps we should.

And Now This Word from Outer Space.

Latest Travis McGee wankfic preview edition.
“The main Muslim prayer, the Shahada: ‘There is no god but Allah, and Mohammed is his messenger.’ The green Saudi flag is basically the same as the black flag of jihad, except for the color.”

“Right. They have to wipe their feet on the Shahada flag, spit on it, and pledge loyalty to king and country. And it’s all videotaped. Tends to separate the sheep from the goats, knowing they can never live among practicing Muslims ever again. In the end, most of them went through the ritual. And most of them said they were glad to do it.”

“Even so, Colonel, I wouldn’t trust them. The Koran tells them to lie to infidels if it helps to spread Islam.”

“The sincere ex-Muslims are the best at sniffing out the fakers. They know that if there’s any more Muslim terrorism in the UK, they’ll all be deported next time—every last one of them. And they don’t want to go back, oh no, they don’t want to go back. Being dropped off on a deserted stretch of the Libyan beach is not very pleasant, I’d imagine. And after they take the king’s oath standing on the Saudi flag, it’s a death sentence if they’re ever sent back to a Muslim country. It’s all on videotape. They know full well they have the most to lose from any more Muslim terrorism in Britain. They’re the best ferrets we have, the sincere ex-Muslims. Most of them became Christians, just prove their loyalty even more strongly. Anyway, there’s not many left. Most of them went home on the ships. Better than ninety percent. The ex-Muslims who are left are a good lot, by and large. King and country.”

“It’s hard to believe they’d just agree to leave like that.”

“They didn’t have much choice about it. Remember, this all happened soon after Paris and the start of the French Civil War. We were all watching it on television, hour by hour. The Muslims in the UK knew that if we went in hard, like the French Army did, the only alternative to deportation was dying in the rubble. The French example was staring them in the face. Anyway, most of them are still alive—which is more than you can say for the Christians in the Middle East.”

Monday potpourri pt. I

Kenny is not a fan of the new National Security adviser understanding how psychology works:
Article says he doesn’t want to say “radical Islamic terrorism”. Sorry but no matter who he’s killed, I see that as a red flag. Trump pushed that repeatedly in his rallies, you can’t beat the enemy if you won’t say their name. He criticized Obama over and over for not saying “radical Islamic terrorism”.

Anyway, Hillary’s probably killed her share of enemies, not necessarily a character reference. :-)
Lil Flower has fully adopted the 'if liberals ain't mad, I don't want it' paradigm:
I knew this guy was bad news when the establishment went all gaga over him. Trump is over impressed with Generals, don’t know if he looks deep enough before he hires.

Me too. When everyone likes him, you know it’s trouble. He should have never excepted Flynn’s resignation. Preibus needs to go.
be-baw has an odd definition of innuendo...
We have yet to see a shred of evidence that Russia had any influence on or even tried to intervene in US elections. All we have is innuendo that 9 or 16 or however many intelligence agencies have claimed it happened. No named sources of these rumors as far as I know and there’s no good reason to believe any of it.
dp0622, of all people, urges Freepers to remain calm:
To think I worried about this sh## a few weeks ago.
Nobody’s kicking Trump out of power.

He will destroy them first.

And there are no ground.

THEY HATE that he apologizes to NO ONE an takes no prisoners.

Hey Trump, kill em all and let God sort em out.
To replace Trump's latest failed nominee, VietVet876, like so many Freepers, takes refuge in fiction, and a hoaxter:
I liked one of the actors who played SecNav in NCIS a couple of years ago when Ziva was still in the house. Or to really put a steel-toed boot up the appropriate asses, how about Richard Marcinko?
Pravious defends Trump's compulsive twittering - he's doing it for youuuu!
Why does he feel the need to comment about everything?

Because he sees himself as virtually the only person standing up to that left and what they’re trying to do to our country. Even after his win, the Republicans in congress seem overwhelmingly content to cower under their desks, deny that anything’s ever going to get done, and whimper like cowards.

Besides, I like the mindset of constantly throwing it back in the left’s ugly face. Don’t let them set the agenda. Don’t let them get away with ANYTHING, because they’ve been getting away with EVERYTHING for far, far too long.
trebb also thinks Trump's constantly making a fool of himself for the world to see is good, because liberals being angry proves liberals losing. Not sure what that means about Freepers being angry...
I think the President's tweets work best when he talks about what his administration is accomplishing. After all, that is the best bitch-slap of all.

Normally I might agree, but the whole of the Left is fully engaged in war with President Trump and like they say, A good offense is the best defense --- if he goes a day or two w/o some sort of slap at them, they will be crying out that he must agree with them and that he is indefensible...
Tune in later today, as frustration sets in, and Freepers stop gloating about miserable liberals and start yearning for fascism.

elpadre is pretty sure the Democratic Party is doomed, now:
a full fledged socialist defeated a hammer and sickle communist. I suspect membership in the Democratic Party is going to decrease considerably. 
Many whom I know are only Democrat because they always have been as were their Daddies were and grand-daddies, etc. This may well be just too much for them.
Ho-hum, just  Candor7 urging vigilante murder again.
If I were Bergdahl’s lawyers, at this point I’d tell him to let the trial proceed and see what the judgement is

Well many want him released so they can make their own Justice happen. His action resulted in a couple of deaths of his fellow platoon members.

If he had any clues, he should want to stay in jail as long as possible for protection.But he is actually clueless.
MGunny has already started defending Trump for not delivering on his outlandish promises.
PRESIDENT Trump has been in office now for, what, 5 weeks...and he hasn’t cured the common cold....I am SOOOOO disappointed!
Bit of advice, Arthur McGowan...done's play semantics with pedophilia...
There were only four or five PEDOPHILE priests in the U.S. in the last sixty years.

Most of the rest were pederasts. Homosexual men preying on young males.
WENDLE goes on the Oscars thread to smugly drop that the Oscars and moves r dumb and liberal and gay.
That movie crap is total history.Nobody gives a rip.I have never see so many communists in one hell hole. Their movies suck . I will never watch the glorification of faggots.Never!
Art in Idaho has some analysis of the amusing Oscars screw-up
Trump won tonight.
Ann Archy is going full conspiracy on the Oscars:
I just watched a short clip on Drudge, and it looked TOTALLY FAKE!! HOW did that guy grab the card out of Beatty's hand that said Moolighting????? Totally STAGED imho.

If this hadn't happened NO ONE would be talking about the damn show.
Red Badger seems to think majority minority districts are Democratic inventions:
It was DEMOCRATS OWN GERRYMANDERING that caused them to lose the House and Senate in 1994 and again in 2010.

When they were in power in the states’ redistricting processes they ‘created’ so-called ‘black districts’ that were safely within their control. By doing this, they had to rob adjacent districts of democrat voters, thus weakening their control over those districts’ voters and so they lost the district in the next election after the redistricting.

What this did was to make the elected Dems in Congress be way more liberal and left-wing than the average voter back in their states. They weeded out the centrists and the right wing entirely of their party so now we have a Dem party full of far left ideologues.

Then when the Republicans got control of the redistricting process, they let the ‘black districts’ remain, so now neither the Dems or the Pubbies will get rid of them...............
GrandJediMasterYoda has a new conspiracy for us!
I believe the NY Times was the paper that warned Castro of the Bay of pigs invasion. Right there the editors and owners should have been arrested for treason. That’s 56 years that people have been living under a dictatorship because of that.
Angels27 knows California is only liberal because of all the illegal immigrants voting fraudulently, though also Trump is hated???
I live in Southern California. I ASSURE you Hillarys huge advantage here was just from illegals. Whites overwhelmingly voted for her here to. Trump is completely dispised here in the Peoples Republic of California. He is utterly hated here and anyone who would vote for him is subject to violence. Even Orange County voted overwhelmingly for her. No Democrat since FDR has carried Orange County.
