I've Been Here Longer Than You

Who cares? It doesn't matter when you got on board, only that you were able to before the Ark departed.

Now batten down the hatches, full speed ahead!

And Michael, if you are considering reopening registration, maybe two by two would make things easier.

I'll guarantee you

the trolls will be much more refined this time. It goes with the turf we've set up. I seriously doubt if there's another site that is taken more seriously than here. Get out front and there's a bulls eye automatically placed on your chest. Gotta go check the news about Bundy supporters being singled out by the TSA.

There are no politicians or bankers in foxholes.

Under "original"

Did you paint that picture?

I did not paint the picture.

I got the image from Wikipedia.

I knew you didn't

paint that picture. SO how is this post an original?
the only thing so far that might have been yours is the words for the topic. And,I see MN is on board as you are,to me it is very telling
A DP original,that is not,then asking for more of you to join?

Ah ha!

Ya finally got me Deacon!

I was hoping that you would think I painted it and maybe we could be friends.

Guess you're too smart for that.

Can't get anything over on ol Deacon!

No sir.

"I'm Ron Paul." - Ron Paul

I had an idea..

to allow registration by sending them out to our friends. Like maybe allow 10 invites to the DailyPaul.

It would be a neat experiment. :)

Who's friends?

There are types here who need not be here,I certainly do not want their of
friends coming here muddying up the waters,as what has happened in the past.It might be a bit different if we had a say in getting rid of the trouble
that accumulates here....But we don't,and the mods don't seem to get in any hurry to get rid of them...and it's not my job to point them out(but I have)
and I do not come here to deal with it,But when here,I get to.
It certainly doesn't take 3 years,as has been the case here,to get rid of the doublespeakers and lairs
D

Who should answer that question?

Seriously.

Action defines character. My actions on the DP have certainly shared my character.

I would rather be on the team that is right and lose than the team seeking purity that lost before they ran.

Rand is going to be a formidable leader. Im on his team.

If I meant you

I would have stated YOU,But I didn't,did I?
I was reflecting back to some here who saw anarchists under their beds.
Ones who hold the beliefs that the state has the final say in all matters.
And ones who scream antisemite, just for asking questions.Lawyers on here getting mad for exposing their lies..and lying more.
Should we let them and their kind over run this site?
You can stay silent and mad at me over my comment,But,my hope is you see the light in which I posted the comment in the first place.

Nice chemtrails!

Nice chemtrails!

Condensation was different back then

Waaay back then; clouds, blue sky, and rainbows, were all natural atmospheric occurrences because sunlight, primarily, made those things possible.

Now we are to believe that a small amount of heat from a series of engines can create a phenomena greater than the suns ability dissipate; discoloring the blue, and creating, at times, colors in the sky with no rain at all.

The day that breathing on the center of a cold, sliding glass door causes the whole pane of glass to fog over for hours, is the day I might start to think that what we see so often is just condensation trails.

ROFL!!!

You guys kill me! You just can't get enough can you?

Let's continue our discussion about Chemtrails in a more appropriate place.

"I'm Ron Paul." - Ron Paul

This was my first reply on that

And I was applying it, on point, with the ark picture posting you gave us.

Totally appropriate with the thread theme, and limited to a comparable, scientific observation, eh?

I've been here longer than all y'all

And I approve this message.

:D

Thanks man. I'm thinking about opening up registration again. I just needed a little breather from playing whack a troll.

Which also reminds me - I need to write part 2 of that article.

Nice ark, but those giraffes do look like a butt (as previously mentioned). lol.

Seriously, thank you for reiterating the message. We're all on the same boat.

New People Widen Our News

I rely on this site for all my news. I count of members to contradict or argue with the facts, or better yet, write first-hand, eyewitness accounts.

New people bring new news... new opinions, and new expertise.

It will be interesting to see who is waiting to get in.

What do you think? http://consequeries.com/

You are like the bartender in the Shining

You've always been here.

Was it the bartender or the butler?

Both, by the looks of them. Lol.

well, Michael IS the self-admitted butler of the DP

I'll have to watch that again

I saw it when I was a little kid and I think it scared me for life.

(Not to mention scarred me for life)

I'll put it on the list.

I just told Ed a few weeks ago that that movie is one of the

scariest movies I have ever seen. It messes with my head. Speaking about messing with people's heads try not to get a big head about being user number 1 here. We are all user number 1 somewhere on the internet.

he is not just number 1

He is also number 2:

What I want to know is, what happened to number 6? It's not a Village without a number 6.

jrd3820's picture

It's just like him to take 2 numbers.

Well, I suppose when ya own the place....

Here is number 6
http://www.dailypaul.com/user/57967

And here is number 7 (I love No.7 he is a close friend, it's not that I dislike number 6, I don't know number6, but no.7 is a friend)
http://www.dailypaul.com/user/57967

And of course we have a number 3. Bill3. You know all about Bill3 though. I love Bill3 also. And Chris. And Michael (Michael is simply the best. Better than all the rest). And Mountaincat. And Ed Ucation (that is you). And has. And Mdefarge. And Sierra. And BT. And John Robb (I think he might be on vacation or something, I haven't seen him in a while. I miss him). And Robot Jon (did you know he made a word game? It's in my signature, it says "word games are fun, come play"). And Bigmike. And DiamondDog. And MMJ. And Rocketman. And Ecorob. And Seamusin. And DJP. And Steveo24. And Johncarter. And Promisekept. And Deacon (Deacon was the 1st person to call me a troll here, that was a while ago and we laughed about it later, but at the time I was not amused). And Ira. And CTCZ (he posted a seafood meal for me in your chow session. It looked amazing). And Cyril (Cyril is really great with numbers. I love numbers, I'm just not good with them, but I'm always in awe of people who are really quick with numbers and I like listening to them talk about numbers. Sometimes I think if I listen to them enough maybe I will be good with numbers also). And Eagpele. And Zoo. And Dex. And Smudge. And Unknownuser. And other people I am forgetting right now.

Hmmmm....that comment certainly wandered a bit didn't it? That is what happens at 4:30 in the AM I suppose.

is it possible

To have some kind of reputation system that will allow new members who get downvoted heavily to go into a restriction that limits their ability to post to only once every five minutes and possibly less if they are even less inclined to straighten out their act. This would give people a time-out and an opportunity to think about their actions. They could get back off restriction if they are inclined to make better quality posts.
