It was good to have some good political discussions with someone who doesn't have the same background as me.

I have met some interesting people here. I have followed and posted to some of the others blogs who's owners visit this blog. I like Amy, for instance, and have posted to her blog, as well.

But, I really don't like jeff!!! More often than not, I am not cheering for you. Rather, I am grumbling about HIM!!

He just couldn't take it that I pointed out that doing certain things doesn't make your argument valid. So, he rattles of something about some love affair.



I'll be back when he's gone!

Thank you, Kelly! You've just resolved a dilemma!

Republicus has pondered over issues of censorship and banning, particularly in regards to guests who are not only hostile and generally unpleasant in bearing (they must be tolerated and engaged with), but who also barbarically exploit and abuse the civility of their host in his allowing of Free Speech (and that's pushing the envelope).

What really bothers Republicus is the indiscriminate, off-topic importation of long-winded Lefty rants, raves, and screeding manifestos from such liberal political hacks and hatchetman as Paul Krugman, David Corn, and Dr. Goldhammer--with all such postings plastered with a very-annoyingly smug vindication and with a vile Catch-22 awareness, that is, Republicus must either take the time to read the lengthy, hateful, Leftist garbage and refute them on a point-by-point basis (to prove the garbage that they most certainly are), let them stand unanswered (which can be interpreted to imply irrefutability), or delete them at the pleasure of the host (which can be charged as censorship).

Do you have a mind of your own? Speak it. If there is an article you want to be considered along with your own point-of-view--if not referencing it as the source of your opinion-- provide a link to it. It's that simple.

Republicus himself has been on the receiving end of censorship and banishment on Lefty and "I-Sound-Like-A-Pompous-Liberal-But-I-Agree-With-Pat-Buchanan-So-I'm-Not-One" blogs and confirmed the Left's true inclinations vis-a-vis Free Speech and Inclusiveness.

Republicus is not like them, and his tolerance bar was raised much higher.

However, here he was with a pest who was pushing the envelope not on ideology per se but with his tactlessness, his offensive, snide attitude, his vendetta-like obsession, and his spiteful persistence on swamping the commentary sections with imported, long-winded Lefty manifestos and subjective analyses and his own plagiarized posturings.

And most of the time--if not all of the time, come to think of it-- they would have nothing to do with the subject of the post.

Anyway, because of the Catch 22 nature of them, Republicus has asked him--ad nauseum-- to control himself and to stop the damn importation of Lefty opinion-pieces.

That was many months ago.

He wouldn't stop.

What's a host to do with such a guest?

Several months ago, Republicus told a fellow blogger--the Fair Irina-- that he was about ready to boot the boor, rationalizing the censorship by the reasons such as those above.

Irina reminded him of certain principles to uphold (i.e. Free Speech) and comforted him with the possibility that the pest will just get bored and go away on its own, eventually.

Well, it did--but it was only lurking and has now re-surfaced and is plaguing Republicus once again.

Republics endured, and swatted and sprayed the vile, venom-spitting pest as needed, essentially posting "BEWARE" signs here and there as required.

But no! The pest multiplied its posting of long-winded, imported OPINION PIECES BY TOADS like a a cockroach laying its eggs!

What's a homeowner to do?

Well, all of a sudden...mirabile dictu!


Kelly said: "THAT WAS LOW!! JEFF!! GET A LIFE!"

LOL! Of course it was low, what else is new?

But there was nothing--upon principle--that Republicus would do about that.

But this: "I'll be back when he's gone."

Yes, oh yes, that gives Republicus all he needs to show the lowlife the door and throw him out on his noisome buttocks in good conscience, upon the principle that he HE OFFENDED ANOTHER LONG-TIME GUEST AND CAUSED HER TO LEAVE!

THANK YOU, Kelly! :)

Buh-bye, Lee-Harvey.

You are persona non grata at Republicus.

Ah! Fresh air! It's Springtime!

Did you read the justification, Anonymous?

I think it's justified. He offended and caused another guest to leave.

I can't say whether I would have been gone for good, if the pest had not been eradicated...but it was certainly not an enjoyable place to hang out with him here.

It's not his political views that bothered me...but his demeaning rants that cut to the personal that rubbed me the wrong way.

I was hurt.

Before calling someone a Hypocrite, anonymous, be sure you have all the facts.

That's what he does. He tries to slither under a person's skin and have the parasite wag the host.

When a person gets offended at the violation of common decorum, he grins or heckles in triumph and crows that he "got" them.

and when I said, I would be back when he's gone...the pest actually laughed.

Who's laughing now?

No-no, I mean I liked these parts:

"Republicus Republicus you've saved the day...but with Republicus around , well, he's got the right stuff. Republicus republicus, yeahhhh republicus."
