**********HEY FREEPERS********
Edited on Mon Sep-19-05 06:02 PM by lynettebro440
To all the freepers and repukes that are reading and lurking,
now hear this. I have something I want to say and if you
don't want to listen, don't let the door hit your ass on the
way out. Now let me begin.

I've been reading this site for almost a year now as I tried
to find some answers to why this world was turning so stupid.
I'm a little ole woman in the middle of the country with
more brains then I should have. I have been around the block
a few times; fuck that shit I have been around the world. I have lived
through some crazy shit that, if you were paying attention,
you might agree.

I have lost a president from a bullet in his head, watched
another resign as a thief and a crook, watched an old movie
actor that had early stages of Alzheimers become president
twice and then let his Nazi vice prez take over. I watched as
this Nazi regime leader was voted in, and extended our pain for four
more years. I watched a pot smoking, saxaphone playing hippie
grab up the white house and gave me some hope to an end to the
destruction that the previous twelve years of a Nazi regime
had destroyed. I was in Florida in 2000 when Jr. stole the
show and took the white house away and watched in complete
disbelief as he stole it again from us in 2004. I have now watched a
Vietnam War start up and repeat again in Iraq. The first time I
wasnt of draft age, now I have two children who are. I have
watched my generation become a bunch of bloated, spoiled, arrogant,
bitchy, name-calling assholes whose entire purpose is to make
money and cheat on each other in the name of god. I now watch
and see them make themselves out like they are in the early
stages of Alzheimers themselves (what I like to call selective memory)
so they don't have to watch and change themselves and the
world.

I have sat here behind these eyes in total disbelief that I
witnessed all of this and have survived to talk about it.
Well, I hadn't seen anything yet compared to what I am
witnessing now.

I used to sit back and try to wonder, when I was in my early
stages of life, how was I possibly going to describe what the hell
was happening in words that my children might be able to
understand about this world in which we lived in. Now I am finding myself
incapable of even trying to put into words what is happening now.
I need to ask now, WHAT THE FUCK IS WRONG WITH THIS FUCKING WORLD?

Have we as human beings become such a lazy, cowardly, senile,
retarded, stop asking question group of people that we are all
just simply going to sit on our fat asses and make fun of each
other? I have had it to a degree that I can honestly say
concerns me like no other time that I have spent on this
earth.

I have posted 8 original posts before this one here on DU, it
took a lot of courage to do that. I have three times been featured as
the "headliner" on three different freeper sites. So here is to
all the people that have a high attraction for taking my words
and using them to slam me and my beliefs. FUCK YOU!! If my
little old words get you heated up, you haven't seen anything
yet.

To each one of you cowardly, overweight, retarded, red, white
and blue, pickup truck driving, Christian mother fuckers who are watching,
go ahead and post your threats and insults. I'm neither afraid nor intimidated nor
am I going to put up with your shit anymore. Fuck you and
fuck your opinions!

To all you Christian fundamentalist, bible thumping, Jesus
loving, righteous people, get up off your asses and start
LIVING (not just fucking preaching) your goddamn beliefs.

To all you gas guzzling, yuppie thriving, finger pointing,
righteous rich people, pull out your fucking wallets and start
giving it back.

To all you NRA loving, gun toting stupid ass right wing, self
righteous Uzi loving rednecks, get up off your asses and get
your guns back, because theyre coming to take them away.

To all the minorities of the world who have been beaten down
and shoved into the ground harder and harder, get up off your
asses and get pissed off.

For all the rest of the quiet, meek and not so sure of themselves people,
NOW is the time to speak up louder then you have ever spoken before.

I am tired. I am tired of no one doing anything to save this
nation and especially tired and pissed off that those of us
that are become a party to ridicule and abuse. Well you know
what? I am getting up off my ass and ready to take back my nation LOUDER
and STRONGER and more intelligently than any brain addled
freeper in this fucking world can.

Thank you DU for finally giving me a voice. I can now proudly
speak it to anyone within earshot. To every one of you
freepers who finds curiosity in me and our words here on DU, I
say DU; let's show them what we got.

Open your mouths (or in this case your fingers) and let these
lazy, asshole, piece of shit people that can't come up with their own ideas, that find us so
fascinating here at DU, hear what it is we have to say. Let me be
the first to say

FUCK YOU IF YOU DON'T LIKE IT, I'M HERE, NOW
LIVE WITH IT.

What do the rest of you want to say? Next?

1. A question for our Freeper Stalkers
I've been trying to figure something in my head and maybe you could help me out yea? When a person is insane, as you clearly are, do you know that you're insane? Maybe your just sitting around, reading guns and ammo, masturbating in your own feces, do you just stop and go, Wow it is fucking amazing how crazy I really am? Yea? Do you guys do that?

31. My friend, you aren't alone.
It's about greed, stupidity, and petroleum. In big numbers. Petroleum is a big factor in why we are where we are today. It's easy to be lazy and still have a wonderful life. The mobility destroyed our communal lives. Etc, etc, etc.

And if it helps, I've been sitting here with my life pretty much on hold, since Reagan got in office. In a complete state of disbelief. Only now do I feel like the rest of the country is waking up. Sort of. Bless you for speaking out. I can see these turds are going to require a fight. Cops sneaking up behind Cindy Sheehan in New York today. Shame on America. I wish they'd back down quietly. I don't like fighting. But speaking up is the first step. And we're doing it thanks to you and you and you and you.

41. Bravo lynettebro440
I have lived through 47 years of some very encouraging, and some equally disturbing times. Times when it seemed like we as a nation were ready to finally extend our promise to all of our citizens, and times such as now, where those promises are being closed off again, often times by the very people who benefited from their expansion in the first place.

I see those who feel the edge they possessed was theirs and theirs alone, and that it is somehow Un-american to level the playing field. But there is a glimmer of hope. The wall and the clock have been pushed back too far for the majority of decent people to accept, and many more realize each day that a return to the era the neocons speak of is a return to a time when over half the population in America were less than whole citizens. If the pendulum hasn't stopped swinging completely rightward, I sense it's motion slowing, if not stopping altogether.

It can only swing one way once that has happened, and my greatest hope is that as it swings back leftward again, that we on the left act as wisely with that swing as the neocons have acted unwisely with theirs.

42. Hey Lynnettebro440, YOU ARE NOT ALONE!! Being on DU helps you know that
I couldn't have said it better. Another old broad here, probably same age, who is still so dumbfounded that people STILL don't get it yet. Not on DU, but everywhere else, it seems.

To all non-DUers: Wake up & smell not the coffee but the stench of stealth destruction & murder, greed, cronyism, corruption, psychosis, sociopathology, revision of history, blasphemy, hypocrisy and kleptocracy.

Note to all DU doubters on election fraud:

What makes you think that an administration and party that would lie its way into an unnecessary, pre-emptive war that has murdered thousands, would not be working hard to steal elections in the U.S.? Answer that one!

You people rock!!!! So friggin clever and witty, and so fucking entertainment..... :applause: :woohoo: (just like these emoticon dudes.... :)

Can you imagine how much fun everyday life could be if there were more of US in the U.S. - not all the repressed, judgmental, miserable-ass people the OP described so well?

"FUCK YOU IF YOU DON'T LIKE IT. I'M HERE, NOW LIVE WITH IT."

My new mantra!!!!!

58. Thank you for channeling my thoughts and posting them here
I, like you, have had the same time frame experiences. I weep for my country. I am angry that the others of my generation have let things go so terribly wrong. I am embarrassed at what we are currently offering as a "future" for our kids and our grandkids. I had my children while Clinton was in office because I thought they would have a brighter future than I did. I still believed. If I were of the same age now that I was then, I can say that I would NOT have made the same choice. I could not justify having a child during the early 80's, as I felt there was nothing to pin my hope to for this country's future.

I can remember the day Kennedy was shot. I remember the way the sky looked, I remember the way my family, my community and my country reacted. I remember standing in my front yard, all alone, a second grader ... silently crying ... because I knew that my world and my country would never look the same. I spent my youth working on campaigns, both locally for my own father and then nationally for McGovern. I remember the speech from California that Bobby gave, because I stayed up that night, by myself, to watch it. I went to bed with happy thoughts that maybe I had been mistake and that there just might be hope for our country yet. My brother woke me the next morning to deliver the second punch. I was mad ... and I still am.

I have watched too many good men and women be pushed to "serve" their country when they didn't have a clue why. I have seen civil rights leaders cut down. Not because they didn't speak the truth, but rather because they did. I grow more angry still.

When Clinton was elected, I again thought there was hope for this country. I got on with my life ... the part where I thought I could breath quietly and deeply and have a life. I worked at raising my children to be contributing members of society, to understand that sometimes it feels better to give than to receive and that they have an obligation to learn to take care of themselves and their neighbors. I will not know just how well I have succeeded at that until they are in a position of leading or following on their own.

I hope they do better than my generation has. I often think that the "me" generation never grew up enough to understand that we are all in this together. I hope that Katrina drives some of those messages home. I know that I have been glad to see that there are many that feel as I do with the ability to reach out to those in need and the devil be damned.

I feel as you do. It is time. The chickens have come home to roost. I feel that I will explode with shame, anger, disgust, and embarrassment on a daily basis these days.

I worked for Kerry's campaign, volunteering to go to a neighboring state since they needed the help there more than here. I freeway blogged (and my daughter was excited to help! yeah team) and talked to every one that would listen ... and even a few that didn't want to. I believed in him then and I still do now. He still makes me proud and he still gives me hope that we can turn things around. Today's speech is a good example of finding hope when the truth is spoken to power. We must do more of the same. All of us.

Thanks for the rant. I agree with every word you said.

And a belated welcome to DU! :hi: :hug: We SHALL overcome!

Edited on Mon Sep-19-05 09:22 PM by Nothing Without Hope
out in their squalid little rooms with their sweaty keyboards that they're unlikely to breed more of the same. The human gene pool is really better off without them. Hey, freeps! Isn't about time for your next dose of junk food and brain-paralyzing neocon Kool-Aid?

It's about damn time the anti-GOPs and progressives woke the hell up and got MAD AS HELL. (I'm not going to be so simplistic as to call them "Dems.") Any current Dem "leader" who continues to play politics as usual, colluding with the GOP and never making strong statements, let alone producing actual plans for moving ahead, must be marginalized and left in our dust.

60. I totally enjoyed that
Feels so good to hurl loose a bunch of FUs, doesn't it??? I've been so angry lately, I feel like a pressure cooker about to blow sky high. To let off steam, I've started doing a bit of loud ranting in public lately, as I think we all should do. The time is right. You can feel it. People look up and smile in agreement for the most part, though you can always spot the freeps a mile away. There's a lot of freeptards that really deserve our anger, like the nasty fellow who shot me a bird yesterday just because he didn't like my bumper stickers. But, sadly, I think there's a whole slew of them out there that are basically good people, albeit terribly misguided, and not willing to do their own thinking. When the full magnitude of what's going down hits them-- and it will-- they're going to be utterly crushed by the vicious betrayals of the BFEE. As much as we can't stand the freeps for the most part, I try to never lose sight of the fact that these confused and badly misled Americans are going to need to find a way back home to reality one day.

Maybe we should leave a light on for them.

61. Say it lynettebro440. Do you know how I spent my 50th birthday in August?
I drove 6 hours from Pittsburgh to Cincinnati to work for the Paul Hackett campaign in OH-2. I stayed there for 3 days. I figured it was time to start working to take back my country. Hear that, freepers? Not just your country. MY COUNTRY. The country where the middle class taxpayers are subsidizing that rich that YOU FREEPERS CONTINUE TO ENABLE by electing criminals like Bush, Cheney, and Delay.

And it was a helluva start. Hackett almost won it against all odds, and now it looks like he'll run for Senate in OH against DeWine. So, you see, every little step like that is now turning into bigger steps toward an America that we can all respect again.

And I'll be working my tail off to get that sick bastard Santorum replaced by Bob Casey. We're sick of being ashamed of our senator, and he will be GONE.

Freepers, you have no idea the fury that has been unleashed and the determination that is dwelling in our souls.

lynettebro440, :yourock:

65. Since we are talking to the Freakers - I have something I'd like 2 say too
As a tax-paying American citizen I must respectfully DEMAND a new museum in DC to house the dangerous weapons of mass destruction we seized from the clutches of Saddam Hussein thereby saving ourselves and the world. I PAID for those WMD's and damn it I EXPECT them to be displayed for my viewing pleasure.

You were so sure they were there Freepers, and folks like you are never........ never.......... wrong. :sarcasm:

You produce that WMD museum and I'll carve the boy chimp into a mountain with my OWN TWO HANDS. Because I can. I'm not a gluttonous bar-co-lounger butt like 98% of all Freakers.

73. Lynette you HAVE found your voice!!!
It is clear, proud and exactly what they fear most - Truthful.

:hi: .
I have been away for a while, and I must say I am impressed by your post!

I do have a few things to say to the idiots of which you speak.

Freeps, I know from experience that most of you appear rather dense so I will start out by saying "ditto on the OP". I know you know what ditto means.
Also This, a gesture you have learned from your chimp messiah

finally, I would like to share some quotes with you.

The first item I think you would do well to reflect on:

I should like to first inquire for a while what reason, what prudence, there is in wishing to glory in the greatness and extent of the empire, when you cannot point out the happiness of men who are always rolling, with dark fear and cruel lust, in warlike slaughter and in blood, which, whether shed in civil or foreign war, is still human blood; so that their joy may be compared to glass in it's fragile splendour, of which one is horribly afraid lest it should be suddenly broken in pieces.
-SAINT AUGUSTINE (354-430)


The second item expresses what your neo-con regime has inspired in me, the original poster, and an ever growing number of Americans who still value life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness; and who will fight you relentlessly with the truth:

I will be as harsh as truth, and as uncompromising as justice. On this subject, I do not wish to think, or speak, or write, with moderation. No! No! Tell a man whose house is on fire, to give a moderate alarm; tell him to moderately rescue his wife from the hands of the ravisher; tell the mother to gradually extricate her babe from the fire into which it has fallen; - but urge me not to use moderation in a cause like the present. I am in earnest - I will not equivocate - I will not excuse - I will not retreat a single inch - AND I WILL BE HEARD.
WILLIAM LLOYD GARRISON (1805-1879)

98. you quoted my favorite quote
Wm. Lloyd Garrison.

I have often wished that Democrats would stand on the moral authority earned through the civil rights movement and all the other instances where the fight for civil liberties, for equality and equal justice has been waged by blood sacrifice and real grit -- by Democrats.

Stand on the record! Run on the record! Be proud to be a Democrat!

95. This is why liberals will prevail!
lynettebro440 expresses quite eloquently exactly how so many of us in America feel. We're pissed off not only at the Republicans for putting their lust for power above the good of the country, but we're pissed at the Democrats for caving, for their silence, for their pure lack of SPINE!

I grew up loving America, getting teary-eyed when the national anthem played, and I used to be goddamn proud to be an American. Now I cringe when I meet a foreigner, I feel like I have to grab them by the arm and explain that most of the American people are ashamed of our government.

Bravo, lynettebro440, keep that fire burning! That passion and the passion burning in the belly of so many of us, is what will propel us to victory!

I appreciate your passion, and anger. In my opinion what makes us better than them, is that we have a proper appreciation for the facts and history. George H.W. Bush fought bravely in World War II against fascism. To call him a Nazi is gratuitous and is exactly the kind of thing you find on FreeRepublic.com.

the bush's have been, and still are, up to their beady eyeballs with nazis and nazi sympathizers. Yes, even today they are alive and running a frightening number of the so-called conservative foundations and think tanks in this country as well as the rest of the world.
So even though he did serve(a tradition not continued by his progeny) he is still a nazi.

146. A couple of observations...
Edited on Tue Sep-20-05 05:50 PM by Atlanta Progressive
the bush's have been, and still are, up to their beady eyeballs with nazis and nazi sympathizers.
I took another poster's advice and googled "Prescott Bush" Nazi and the number 1 result returned was How Bush's grandfather helped Hitler's rise to power. I would suggest that this article is less proof of Prescott Bush being a nazi-sympathizer and more an indictment of capitalism. I would also suggest that whether or not his father has some culpability in the rise of Hitler, is irrelevant to whether or not George H.W. Bush is a Nazi.
Yes, even today they are alive and running a frightening number of the so-called conservative foundations and think tanks in this country as well as the rest of the world.
I agree with this statement. I give to the Southern Poverty Law Center, which has documented right-wing organizations that push ideas could be described as Nazi. That being said, I don't believe in guilt by association. A neo-con think tank espousing nazi ideas doesn't make all Republicans nazis any more than a liberal think tank espousing communist ideas makes all Democrats communists.
So even though he did serve(a tradition not continued by his progeny) he is still a nazi.
I would suggest that calling everyone with whom you disagree (and with whom I share your disagreement) only serves to dilute the word, and hurt our crediblity.

147. I don't call everyone I disagree with a nazi, only the nazi's.
And granpappy bush continued to support Hitler and the nazis well after it was illegal in this country to do so. If the family had made any attempt to change its ways I would not refer to them as nazis, but it has not. I don't refer to the kennedy's as bootleggers, because they are no longer bootleggers.

148. It's a rant, not a philosophical treatise
There's a lot of anger in this country that has been bottled up for way too long. This is just the first fusillade, get ready for a massive explosion.

152. I guess it's OK then, America must have been fresh out of ways to
enjoy capitalistic ventures. I notice that P. Bush didn't become horrified about who he did business with and take his money elsewhere:

But the new documents, many of which were only declassified last year, show that even after America had entered the war and when there was already significant information about the Nazis' plans and policies, he worked for and profited from companies closely involved with the very German businesses that financed Hitler's rise to power.

Edited on Tue Sep-20-05 12:56 PM by GayCanuck
"I have
watched my generation become a bunch of bloated, spoiled, arrogant,
bitchy, name-calling assholes whose entire purpose is to make
money and cheat on each other in the name of god."


So right on. My sister married an American and they live in Palo Alto, California. He made it big in Silicon Valley with some high tech start-up. Both of them were progressives; degrees from Berkeley and McGill and advanced degrees from Stanford where they met. Now they live in a $8 million dollar home; Benz, Beamer, etc.. and their kids; oh my God; I've never seen such a spoiled and rude lot! They've been denied nothing and seem to be turning out to be everything my sis and her husband strived not to be; selfish, arrogant, rude and totally blind to the downtrodden in their own country. I'm guessing this is commonplace, not only here but in Canada as well. The ultimate was when I visited them with my partner and their oldest boy quickly realized we were gay and exclaimed "how about that, I have an uncle who is a faggot." I really let my sister have it. I'm still hurt by it even though the brat was punished. Just what the US needs; more biggoted Freepers.

120. What's Up With You? Let Me Ask...
Edited on Tue Sep-20-05 02:30 PM by DistressedAmerican
While you are still here, let me ask why in hell you are still supporting these noe-imperialist, corporate automatons? You know they are destroying the country. They have sold you, me and all of us out to their violent plan to impose American hegemony on the middle east. They have no conscience. They are not trying to liberate anyone. They are occupying them and bankrupting us in the process. And you still support that?

Are you nuts?



How do you feel about our deficit? Do you not mind this drunken sailor routine? Even when it has destroyed our economy?

130. I Do Not Really Care Where You Do Or Do Not Post. A Freep Is A Freep.
Edited on Tue Sep-20-05 02:54 PM by DistressedAmerican
All of the proof I need about my statements on occupation can be backed up by a cursory reading or the Project For The New American Website.

www.newamericancentury.org /

They make it quite clear that their agenda is using America's status as the lone superpower to secure access to oil in the middle east and eliminate Israel's enemies in the region.

WMD was a lie. Plain and simple. even if they did actually believe their "flawed" intelligence, they had every opportunity to back off of their incorrect info as they were feeding their intel to on the ground inspectors that time after time found nothing.

Liberation is the post hoc excuse that they made up to justify our continued occupation even though WMD proved not to exist.

As to "a little debt" is concerned. I little is one thing. Look at those numbers. Bush and the republican congress have created a deficit that is of unprecedented proportions. It is hundreds of billions more that the largest previous experiment in deficit spending. We are currently borrowing roughly a billion dollars a day just to keep a float. They Repugs have looted the treasury.

As to the Clinton budget surplus. It is coincidentally just about the same number that Bush just announced he plans to spend on the gulf coast rebuild. I would rather be paying with already collected taxes that borrowing even more and further eroding our economy.

I have a kid. She does not have to pick up my mortgage. But, she picks this war debt right up. All so that the richest Americans can have 4 tax cuts? That is robbing our children to enrich the already loaded. That is what is wrong with the deficit.

Saddam was not a Taliban style theocracy. He was a secularist that will now be replaced with an Iranian backed Shia theocracy. Tell he how that is an improvement. Our troops should have stayed in Afghanistan to defeat the Taliban. Instead they were sent to Iraq to chase a secular leader that posed no threat to us.

Oh by the way, where is Osama?

my sentiments exactly! These evil bastards are putting or lives in jeopardy. Everyone who is worried about there money more than their lives,should think about Katrina and all that was lost in one day. Come on people speak up it took me a long time to post also, I am fed up.I spread the word as much as possible about this crazy ass administration. I give out flyers, attend meetings and talk to the very unaware and you would be surprise how many there are.These people are plotting up more wars,for our children to fight while they reap all the benefits of this country.
