Why I'm Leaving The Daily Paul

Really sick and tired of people posting spam on this site such as news articles of somebody falling out of a plane and most of all - all of the constant BS tasteless Onion spam. (One spammer in general keeps posting this unimpressive filth)

Worst of all, anytime somebody mentions conspiracy its looked down upon by the Ron Paul newbies who don't really know about the movement. If you don't know by now, Ron Paul is a full on conspiracy theorist.

I'm a conspiracy theorist at heart before politics and an atheist and my opinions I know are valued more elsewhere.

Cya Daily Paul.

One day the top items were all Onion

I clicked on the top trending articles of the day, and they were ALL articles from the Onion. Now, I'm as much of a serious, downer, the-world-is-going-to-hell-in-a-handbasket libertarian as the next guy, but I so much enjoyed the endless series of Onion spoofs that day that I laughed out loud and scared my wife. I nearly wrote something positive about you, Chris.

I have since regained my game-face. So I give this challenge to you, our infamous resident Cheesehead: go on, make my day, try to make me smile again.

(Sung to the Wisconsin fight song: She's Too Fat For Me)
Donchaknow that I'm not laughin'
You're not that fu-unny
You're not that fu-unny
You're not that fu-unny
Donchaknow that I'm not laughin'
You're not that fu-unny
You're not that fun,
You're not that fun,
You're not that fu-unny, hey!

Chis, I say this for you're own good, saving the world from itself is serious business. Humor has no place in a world of Cash for Clunkers, illegal insurance policies that Obama says you can buy and he won't prosecute you for but he won't make legal, NSA spying on everyone and not finding a damned thing, billionaires lining up for Fed welfare checks while grandma's monthly food stamps are cut.

If I weren't a libertarian, I'd pass a law making laughing illegal during a national crisis. But, like smoking pot and visiting ladies of the evening, I defend you're right to engage in jocularity between consenting adults. Even on the Daily Paul.

Yeah - I did that. My hand was forced...

The 'Active Forum Topics' were full of bunk so I made the conscious and only slightly intoxicated decision to 'bump' a bunch of old Onion stuff - a 'refresh' as it were.

Thanks for everything you do in the U.S. Senate, Mr. Johnson...

Yeah, once a day. And every

Yeah, once a day. And every damn day I click on your topic, which is for some reason on the front page of the site, expecting a real article but it just ends up being another fake stupid onion video. It shouldnt be on the front page of this site.

Didnt you admit you worked for the Onion? So not only are you spamming crappy, fake news articles but youre advertising.

No - I never worked for them. But I did pre-write my

resignation letter.

btw, YOU are the reason I post Onion videos. I'm trying to test peoples' bullshit detectors. You should be skeptical about everything you see and hear, not just stuff that comes from me.

I'm in Shanghai right now. It is Sunday afternoon, I recently cleaned out my bank account buying a last minute international holiday time flight so I don't have a penny. I was worried that today was going to be a boring afternoon but watching you take heat over Onion videos has proved to be quite entertaining so thanks for posting the unimpressive filth that is apparently quite bothersome to some people here.

We need more good farce.

Government farce is the norm, but it's just to pitiful for humor.

The Onion's Money Hole is my favorite.

Free includes debt-free!

I too, rarely, have seen these 'onion' videos...

for example

Irony is always funny.

Spends less than 2 months on the DP, yet is tired of all the Ron Paul newbies? Maybe you're just new to this website and have been with the RP campaign for a while (I've been here a little less than 2 years but was at Ron Paul Forums going back to early 2007 so I'm not accusing you of being a Johnny-come-lately), but you don't really seem like you have a high tolerance for dissent if you can't take 2 months of dealing with RP supporters who are not conspiracy theorists or atheists. I don't fall into either category at present (lost interest in Alex Jones about 4 years ago, stopped being an atheist about 9 years ago), but if you want to go to a place where people are as whiny as you, try RationalWiki, though they might not go for the conspiracy theory stuff.

I have more than one handle you know.

Makes sense.

Personally I don't do the multiple account thing on forums, it tends to confuse people who aren't regulars.

ron paul never spoke of any

ron paul never spoke of any theories, he only mentioned facts.

The Onion is awseome!

So good that at least one media source gets things accurate. I remember thinking at first it was fake and more of a satirical site. Now I just go to the Onion to get the facts and straight scoop!

love it when people leave.

Oh, Don't Forget To Let Us Know When You're Coming Back

We'll be waiting for your reply

Why don't you stay around be my friend and teach me good grammar

Maybe, if i could learn good grammar from you, i could become somebody who uses good grammar.

Please don't leave me floundering around all day long using poor grammar.

One of my favorite people on this site

left a while ago also. I miss him and it makes me sad to not be able to talk to him every now and then. No, really.... it kind of broke my heart a little. I once refereed to him as my favorite person on the internet. I still stand by that comment. I think it was Chris Cudnoski's fault that he left also. Damn Chris Cudnoski, damn him to hell.

What is wrong with the article about the guy falling from the plane? It's a current event. How was it offensive?

is this your first Revolution?

none of us have any experience in this Love.

why would POL POT do that to your friend?
or did the question answer itself?

"Chris Cudnoski", is a professional sockpuppet. he at least has the decency to openly admit it. unlike other perma-trolls here.

wear a helmet and press on!

jrd3820's picture

Oh I was just joking

I don't think Chris actually had anything to do with it. I think it was my fault. Either way though I miss that guy. And it is my first revolution, but I have been doing it since about '08 so I am kind of seasoned.

well, that makes perfect sense.

will you forgive my confusion?

jrd3820's picture

huh...

Sure I'll forgive you if you explain what makes perfect sense?

" Damn Chris Cudnoski, damn him to hell"

why on Earth would I take that seriously..?
how many sockpuppets do YOU have?
