3. Considering Bush personally intervened in a lawsuit that benefited Free Republic...
why do YOU think he only got probation?

Granted, it's a pretty shitty kind of probation in a supervised community of some sort, it's still gotta be better than continuing to live in his mom's basement.

7. Some public official in California called FR a hate site. FR sued her and the city she worked for.

Bush ordered the city to settle the case.

Or something like that.

I can go google it for you.

F.R. defamed as "Hate Site" by Fox 5 News!
Fox 5 News ^ | 8/16/07 | crusher

Posted on 08/16/2007 7:56:17 PM PDT by crusher

I was listening to the news out of the corner of my ear when I heard FreeRepublic specifically mentioned as a "hate site" about fifteen minutes ago.

Ostensibly the long report was about the Klan using the web to recruit new wackos. Then the focus turned to Casa Maryland, and their director who claimed that calls for his murder had circulated on the internet by anti-immigrant bigots. It was then that the anchor identified FR by name as a hate site.

I stayed away from this story but you know, if he really did live in his mother's basement the supervised community thing might do him a world of good.

13. Call me when they sentence the Freepers to 12 complete years in school.
And I mean paying attention and passing with a C. And that includes the course they all missed on "Thinking For Yourself."

Followed by:
"Reading The Newspaper."

And of course "What To Do When Your President Is An Ass-Hole."

15. That doesn't seem fair at all does it.
Sorry to hear about your brother. I hope nobody was hurt and that he can put the episode behind him.

It's a travesty. The guy's a terrorist, pure and simple. He should've gotten many years.
