Monday Potpourri pt. I

I'm visiting my family this week, so lighter posting after today.

okie01 is sure the entire Republican primary is a conspiracy orchestrated to screw Cruz:
I’m convinced that Rove is paying Gomer and Sweater Vest to run. Why would Huckster leave a nice little one-night-a-week television show to run again when he knows there ain’t no way he’s winning the nomination?

Recruitmment was evident from the start. Gomer's job as a "favorite son" is to keep Cruz from winning South Carolina. The Huckster's job is to take evangelical votes away from Cruz in Iowa. Sweater Vest's job is to keep yet more conservative votes from Cruz in Iowa, particularly. Rick Perry may be running on his own...but they're counting on him to split the Texas vote (which comes early this time around, on March 1, Super Tuesday)

The GOPe is attempting to kill the Cruz candidacy via "death from a thousand cuts".
ladyjane has convinced herself Muslims get special rights:
We have religious freedom in this country. BUT - it’s only for those who belong to the ‘right’ religion.

Muslims are allowed to have multiple wives (and beat them too) under Sharia law.

Muslims are able to opt out of Obamacare. It’s against their religion.

Muslims can get their mortgage payments made by others (using our tax dollars) because paying interest is against their religion.
Similarly, Blood of Tyrants is sure blacks, women, and gays don't need to go through medical school:
You do not have to be smart to be a doctor. Just be the right color, sex, or sexual persuasion , Affirmative Action takes care of the rest. At one time one needed to be intelligent and many years of education, but that was then, this is now.

Heaven help the people who have appointments with affirmative action doctors.
olezip explains that Trump is so much more than a populist, because he's run for President before!
Why would you claim that Trump is nothing more than a populist? Over the years Trump has talked about running for President, thus has a track record of expressing his concerns about the direction of this country. Are not politicians measured by their accomplishments? Do you not believe that Trump can accomplish what he promises?
GrandJediMasterYoda's Constitutional analysis may lead some into trouble with the law:
The 2nd Amendment is the only valid permit. Everything else posing as a “law” is unconstitutional and void. Any person put in prison for “illegal” arms is a political prisoner put there by an enemy of the people of the United States. Until that amendment is repealed that is the reality
Lots of McCain hatred. I Fiddlstix demonstrates the level of discourse:
McInsane IS A Traitor!
Nothing More, Nothing Less!
WENDLE knows McCain had it super easy as a POW:
He was no hero. We need to see his debriefing file . Why was he called “song bird” by the communists? Why was he released first. Why did he have separate private quarters away from the other prisomers who hated him? Trump has this one right.
In his eagerness to deny that anyone he disagrees with could ever be a hero, Hostage decided no one can ever be heroic when following an order:
McCain did his duty under extremely brutal circumstances. That is commendable but it is not heroism as it was not premeditated.

If you want to know who a true hero is, look to his Commanding Officer James Stockdale.

To equate McCain’s acts with those of Stockdale’s is to render Stockdale’s Congressional Medal of Honor as a meaningless award.
Welp, so much for everyone who stormed Normandy Beach on D-Day, and a bunch of Medal of Honor winners, and Sergeant freaking York.

grania straight-up endorses lying about McCain's past if you hate him now:
This is JOHN MC CAIN Trump is taking on for heaven's sake!! The guy who bare-a**ed lied to get elected. Who enjoys watching his state be over-run by invaders. Who went to Syria, in person, to be sure ISIS got the arms from Benghazi. Who enabled and still supports Nazis in Kiev who trapped civilians in a building in Odessa and burned them alive. Who called Cruz a "whacko-bird" and Trump supporters "crazies". Who is a reliable vote AGAINST anything conservative with his gangs of Senators voting with Dems.

He's no hero. It was admirable that he endured captivity, let's give him that. But he came home and what did he do? Dump the disabled wife who stood by him for an heiress. At this point, he's an enfeebled traitor.

Sorry, dwarfs. If you defend the younger McCain, you can't ignore what he's become.
faithhopecharity thinks Jews that sometimes discuss things other than Israel are "denying themselves as human beings."
ps: one good Jewish man ran into the synagogue ... he said he saw the big crowd (several hundred in attendance) and wanted to add his help for saving Israel he assumed such a big crowd at the local synagogue at that exact emergency moment in history....must have been a save=Israel gathering

but it turned out nobody in there gave a rat’s-ass-dam* about Israel, they were discussing a (pretty good current) pop psychology paperback instead

it was almost as if they were purposely denying themselves as human beings (or Americans, or Jews)
Cowboy Bob argues Republicans are fine caring only about people just like him:
If you were to get just 70% of the White vote, there is no need to pander for the Black and Hispanic vote.

The white are fleeing the Democrat party in droves. It won't be long before the Republican get that 70%.
taxcontrol loves to beat liberals in arguments by pretending to have the following easily countered argument:
I find that in a “debate” with liberals, it is often best to start by pointing out their obvious cognitive dissonance. So in any 2nd amendment discussion, I start with the question “Who has the natural right to defend themselves if they are attacked?” Followed by “When can the government take away a person’s natural rights?”

Not that it changes the mind of the liberal - they are true believers. But I often see others around me think through that point and come to the opinion that the 2nd amendment is there to protect the right of self defense. Not the final position I want them to see but it is a reasoned starting point. It takes them to a place of logic and thought, not emotion.
Gaffer - Hillary was just born bad:
She was born bad, period. She knew everything she wanted to destroy and everything she wanted from everyone that touched her life - and those that didn’t. Above all, she knew human nature, likeability (she has none, BTW) and the power of illusion and deceit. She knew exactly how to trap that handsome two-peckered Billy Goat Bill. Those diamond shaped target pants from which the goat would be inextricably drawn until he tapped it.

Smart lady. Still evil in my opinion. Still can’t believe anything she says or anything her minions say about her.
Speaking of racism and arrogance, gr8eman...
Yankees are the most arrogant and racist people in the country. Part of their arrogance is pretending that southern folk are more racist than they are. They’ll break out the Selma, AL tape when it suits their delusions, but you will never get honesty about their ghettoes!
IDontLikeToPayTaxes thinks the problem with conservatives is insufficient hatred of liberals:
A lot of "good ol' fashioned Conservative American People" are very naive as to the viciousness of the modern Liberal. They need to wake up.
I want the USA back makes up Obama's secret thoughts about the Marines killed in Chattanooga.
The explanation that he won’t speak: “I love the ROP beyond all imagination. They can do no wrong. The soldiers who were killed were probably Christians or Jews: their lives don’t matter to me. In fact, they probably deserved their fate. Also, if you haven’t noticed, I hate the military so much that I have fired all the generals who disagree with me, and am currently in process of castrating the military by forcing it to accept homosexuals and transsexuals. I will not order the flags flown at half-staff, unless it’s ROP members who are killed. “
atc23 knows Obamacare is gonna make everyone kill themselves in frustration at having to deal with blacks:
voluntary suicide is going to be a big thing because of Obamacare - next 20-30 years, people are just going to off themselves rather than go thru end of life ordeals as if you were at the DMV awaiting service. Sneering minority “folks” wagging the finger at you . . .
Molon Labbie is super deep, guys:
Those who decry intolerance are the most intolerant of all.
bert has an idea:
and....... the northeast states forming NeoEuropa must be purged from the union
I know grey_whiskers is the local MRA chucklehead, but wow:
We’ve gone *downhill*.

Let’s repeal several amendments, and only allow male property holders to vote.

And remove the income tax.

And go back to election of US Senators by their respective state houses.

And resume punishing treason with death.


  1. What do Freepers mean by "GOPe?" Is supposed to be "GOP + Nope" or another acronym? I missed the origin of this. Thanks!

  2. As for GOPe ... that means "GOP elite", referring to the "country club" republicans, the elite insiders of the party.

    As for today's post ... a fine batch of freeper crazy this week!
    I love how now Cruz is the object of a "conspiracy" to keep him down.
    The truth is, every time he makes an appearance, though he might receive polite applause, more and more people realize how unqualified he is for office. I doubt he'll win re-election as a senator at this rate.

    1. also: "gop establishment" when "elite" isn't broad enough

  3. Race-baiting trifecta this morning on FR.

    Mob-and-rob at an Akron area convenience store Saturday night gets three threads posted almost simultaneously, all immediately fill up with patented FR racist comments ...

    "First Thread"
    "Second Thread"
    "Third Thread"

    1. You gotta love how some of the same posters go to all of the threads and post the same "funny" comments. They should simply start using the "N" word, hiding behind "feral", "Thug" and "Holders People" simply isn't even original anymore.
