Republicus is a compassionate conservative (seriously) and a uniter, not a divider (it's true).

And he is not waging war against liberalism, but against the hateful extremists who give the Great Idea of Liberalism (whatever) a bad name.

In the post "BLACKBALLED," Republicus sincerely shared his misgivings about banishment (ultimate censorship), but honestly thought that Lee Harvey--that is, "Jeff"-- crossed one line too many when he offended another guest and caused her to leave.

However, as a representative of what is great about this grand republic known far and wide as the United States of America, it is incumbent upon Republicus to prove malice towards none and love for all of his fellow Americans (however wayward and deranged).

Therefore, Republicus is offering the peacepipe and lifting the ban on Lee Harvey he means Jeff and re-instating his privileges as a guest of Republicus and who is free to come and go as he pleases, provisionally:

1) He must STOP the wallpapering in the commentary section with previously-published Lefty editorials/opinion pieces/propaganda unless they are specifically relevant to a posted point (and by all means, provide corrections when warranted, but of fact, not opinion).

He is free to vent himself for as long as he wants, and provide whatever links he would like to be looked at.

And he is welcome to attack Republicus.

Please, go right ahead.

Bring it on.

Make my day.

2) He must apologize, not to Republicus, but to Kelly for his ungentlemanly insinuations.

Honor those two, Jeff, and you're back in like Flynn! :)

If you're interested in becoming a Silver-Star Member of Republicus (with such privileges* as 24/7 access to the site, an allowance of one imported editorial per-post, and a guaranteed response of no less than five words to your comments):

3) Solemnly swear to never cheat on your taxes.

4) Do 25 hours of community service for a faith-based organization (like a church, for example).

5) Wear an American flag lapel pin for one week.

6) Go scavenging around your neighborhood and collect 10 ilbs. of tin cans for the war effort.

7) Buy Halliburton stock.

8) Support your local country club and play golf every weekend.

9) Make a donation to the 700 Club.

10) Subscribe to either The National Review, The Weekly Standard, or The American Spectator.

(*conditional upon mood of host)

So whaddya say, pal? Do you want to bury the hatchet, or wott? :)

That's great. But be careful of what you say around him, because Republicus is consistent and does not wave the flag of the double-standard.

If he--i.e. Jeff-- should tell Republicus that you offended him and compelled him to leave, know, "fair play."

I'll just won't comment on what he says. Trying not to offend him will be like trying to walk on water.

He will be looking.
