View Full Version : tPF's Monthly Posting Contest for September

08-31-2012, 07:22 PM

Thank you for the positive response to the proposed contest. I am pleased to announce that given your feedback, we will be going forward.

The prize for September will be a $25 Visa / Mastercard Gift Card.

The details are as follows:

1. All members other than moderators are eligible to participate.

2. Members will be assigned points for various actions (posts, threads, et al, which will be detailed below) during the month of September. The more active a member, the more points will be awarded based on our formula.

3. These points will be converted into numbered tickets in a virtual lottery. The greater the number of tickets, the greater the probability a member will have to win.

4. In addition to points being awarded for activity, a special bonus of an additional 10% will be granted to the member who creates the most popular post during the month.

5. An equal number of unmarked tickets will be added to the pot.

6. At the conclusion of the contest, a number will be selected at random (using http://www.random.org/) during a live webcast, and the winner will be announced. If the winner does not step forward to claim his or her prize within twenty-four hours, or if the ticket selected is unassigned, the reward will roll over to the following month where it will be combined with that month's amount. In other words, the contest for October would likely be worth $50.

The rules of the contest are subject to change at any time, and if the moderating team feels that a member is spamming simply for the purposes of the contest, appropriate action will be taken. We do not anticipate any issues and believe all of our members understand we do our best to moderate fairly and as little as possible.

We wish you good luck!

Points will be awarded for the following:

- Referrals of new members
- Creation of posts
- Creation of threads
- Number of views on created threads
- Reputation points (both thank yous and reputation received)
- Time spent online

Additionally, members who wish to nominate a post for the "post of the month" competition should copy and paste that post to this thread, along with a link to its original position in the forum. Members who wish to "second" those posts should add a thanks beneath it. At the end of the month, the thanks will be tallied and the author of the post will receive a 10% bonus to his or her overall score prior to the random drawing.

I think this is a really good post and I'm placing it here for consideration.

I'll repeat a point I made earlier and one that the young and/or gullible do not understand about any statist political system, whether it be socialism, marxism, state socialism (fascism) or whatever. The very nature of these systems requires that the populace cede a great deal of power, control and choice to government in the hope that, in its benevolence, it will smooth out the disparities in luck, achievement, birth that result in disparities of standard of living. Unfortunately, history shows us without fail that when this much power is given to the God of Government, invariably it is abused and turned into dictatorship and repression.

By its very nature, statism cannot tolerate serious dissent. It must evolve a police state to suppress dissent and that always ends up the same way.

At one time, before Wilson, we had a government that was sufficiently weak and limited so as to not pose this kind of threat to the people. We have long since passed that point. This genie will not be put back in the bottle peaceably.

I hope other people will nominate (post here) great posts they've seen. Here's another I think is very good.

Through another forum I have had contact with the relatives of about two dozen vets, and direct contact with a few who have been there including Canadians. it seems they are most troubled by the way Obama uses the war and killing bin Laden as political triumphs for himself.

The three big issues are that that they do no believe the White House has even a vague understanding of what's going on, they have no clear objectives and it is simply not winnable. Not one soldier I've spoken to believes it won't be another Viet Nam, that the Talliban will simply roll over whatever is left behind and take over again..


09-04-2012, 03:01 PM
Another great post.

Ok lets ask the question, why did you're administration lie to the United States supreme court, calling the new healthcare mandate a new tax, all the while you were giving public speech's stating the exact opposite, that the new healthcare mandate is not a new tax.

Or how about we ask the question, why did you embroil and involve the United States armed forces in a war in Libya, without any notification let alone constitutionally required declaration of war by the Congress.

Or how about we ask him the question, Mr. President, why is the unemployment rate still above the 8% you promised unemployment would not go above, if as was done, your stimulus bill were passed and implemented.

Or how about we ask the question of why he has not dismissed an attorney general that has now been held in contempt of Congress. Or how about we ask him the question why he had allowed the DOJ to drop the case against the NBP, after they'd already won a conviction for voter intimidation in federal court.

Oh we don't want to address those questions though do we. No if we ask those questions, if we demand this President answer those questions, we will quickly find this President has acted contrary to American values, ideals, and law.

If this administration is asked and put on the spot to answer even one of those questions, we quickly find out, that this President is not deserving of our votes for re-election.

A post for the contest:

I think it's a brilliant strategy to try and revive hope and change and present the Obama's as regular folk. We have racism in our back pocket the moment anyone wishes to address the high paying, no-show job which Michelle held when Obama was a US Senator of explaining how they were able to get their home.

By focusing the public on their beautiful family and spinning a yarn despite facts it will make people once again swoon. We do not want to be bothered with the debt clock, unemployment, the middle east, the cost of fuel and the problems facing this nation and those which have gotten worse these past 4 years.

We want to feel good and using this strategy is exactly what we hunger for. I think we should just fast forward to the POTUS speech so we can leave the convention feeling good about what the Obamas want to do. We need to feel good about a vision where none of us need to work and the state can take care of us. The euphoric feeling needs to be restored to energize the entitled so we can keep Obama in for 4 more years.

We had the week long doom and gloom from the doom and gloom party. Who wants to listen to that? I'm tired of working hard to try and get ahead. It's time for someone else to pay for me. It's time to re-elect Obama.


09-05-2012, 10:38 AM
I'm finding some great writing on the forum, as seen above. I hope you all will submit posts here too. I've been leaving peoples' names off the posts, to help make it more objective. Of course each one has a link, so you can go look to see whose it is if you wish.

Please folks, if you see a post you think is great writing, give it a thanks and support it. Of course if you don't like any of the ones above, don't "vote" for them. Wait for others. Please submit some posts, folks. Help someone win a cash prize.

Polly, I have no problem with your voicing your opinions and, as I said, your posts do provide some thought provoking and entertaining reading. I just happen to disagree with your premises, as well as your analysis on this, and other subjects. Can I provide substantiation for my beliefs/opinions? Probably, if I took the time and effort to do so. But I just don't feel like taking the time. I just know that my beliefs and opinions come from the heart as a true, loyal, American citizen who has a deep love and respect for his country, if not his country's government.
Your perspective seems, to me, to come from someone with a hatred of any non-socialistic type of government. One who refuses to look at the historical consequences of your system of governance and the failure of that system everywhere it has been attempted. I know my system has failures as well, but it did manage to produce the biggest powerhouse economy that the world has ever seen. That system has been eroded by proponents of the system of government you favor. Those proponents who have managed to insert elements of your system into our system and have grown government, debt and misery to the current nightmare that is the U.S. Government. Be they progressives, in either party, or outright socialists, as in Democrats, you, on the left, have managed to do what no external enemy has ever managed, or could ever, do. You have brought this once great country to it's knees. I don't know if we can ever recover from your assault, but we will not go down without a fight. Propaganda from your side notwithstanding.
That would include your demonizing of Reagonus Maximus (:))by comparing him to a common psychopath, Mao.

I nominate this post:

With Obama's record, ↑THIS↑ guy would be losing every poll by double digits right now and would likely have been replaced on the Democrat ticket.
This I think is one of the reasons liberals seem to utterly obsess over race; They know they use it on a regular basis while always deflecting their racism on conservatives.
Not one of them ever wants to talk about "the good old days" or that the very reason for the existence of the Republican party is that people like Lincoln and Frederick Douglas were outraged with the inability or refusal of the Whip party to take on southern Democrat slave owners. No one ever wants to talk about T.R. or FDR or Johnson's blatant racist tendencies nor the fact that it's been Republicans all along fighting Democrats for the civil rights of blacks.

You see when racism truly is a thing of the past, there are a hell of a lot of political figures out there who have absolutely NOTHING else to ensure they retain their power. Congressman West was right when he spoke of a modern day plantation. When Democrats lost "ownership" of their blacks they simply took another approach to slavery keeping them dependent on meager handouts designed to keep them just above the poverty line and in many cases failing at that. Aside from their no longer beating and killing their blacks, the only other difference is that the cash crop has changed from cotton to political power.

you watch too much Cnn. He stepped into a mess that the democrats made with a bit of help from GWB but not near as much as you think. The rest of the mess he's made himself. He has no foreign policy experience and he's made a freakin mess of that. America doesn't bow. America doesn't side with the enemy, America doesn't side with the wrong side and he's done that every. single. time. he's met with a foreign policy crisis.

He's outsourced more jobs and made it not only profitable for his buddies but politically profitable for him. You can't be serious saying he's doing the right thing when we're facing a corn shortage for feed because he wants the ethanol coming.stupid. If everyone is starved to death, we'll have plenty of ethanol. Gas the highest it's been in years, food prices going up, fuel oil the highest its been in ages and unemployment...highest it's been in years. These things affect all of us. You just don't want to open your eyes to see this guy is usurping your freedom as he has usurped and congress willingly, powers that the presidency is denied in the constitution.

THOU SHALT NOT LIE...was not just a suggestion laid down by the God of Abraham Issac and Jacob, in the old testament.

THOU SHALT NOT LIE was not just a suggestion given to us by Christ.

THOU SHALT NOT LIE was a commandment given to us in the Old Testament/Torah, and is a commandment reiterated to us by Christ in the New Testament or "Bible" if you will.

As such tell a lie and you violate Gods commandment, or law.

Violate Gods commandment, violate Gods laws and you commit sin.

Commit sin, and bring upon yourself the consequences of that sin, both in the immediate here and now life on this Earth, and by subjecting oneself to eternal damnation via an eternal residence in hell.

The post quoted above mention's that Abraham lied, what it fails to also tell anyone though, is that Abraham sinned and was also punished by God for telling that lie.

The FACT that Islam as a religion contradicts Gods commandment that we are not to lie, that we are not to bear false witness, that according to islam lying of any kind whatseover, is justified in any form or fashion.

Is just yet a further example of who it is that islam really worships, hint hint it's not the one True Living God of Abraham Issac and Jacob who gave us the commandment not to lie in the first place.

I would like to nominate this post.

I'd like to approach this incredibly though provoking OP from an entirely different angle.
Obviously, Fear's suggestion is ludicrous which is exactly why he posted it, in hopes of exposing the utter idiocy of the alleged response to the video.
I however, see things a bit differently. Certainly liberals are quick to jump to the defense of Muslims over the uber privileged American people especially the Christians who have had it too good for far too long due to our founding documentation and the references to the Christian God; And even over the Jews who based on Israel's historic relations with the most powerful nation on earth have also enjoyed an undeserved cake walk through life (they may have looked at this differently had the Jews failed at surviving the holocaust and not gone on to thrive but alas, they clearly didn't need the help that so many other groups require).

Really, we need look no further than our own nation to understand what's happening here.
Consider those who liberals traditionally rush in to help. The poor, the downtrodden, the minorities and in the case of subscribers to differing faiths, the Muslims.
The groups who most often find themselves the recipients of the liberal brand of "help" or "support" are those considered by liberals to be hopeless, helpless, in dire need of a much more powerful and intelligent surrogate to argue their case and give them a boost.
We can see my point in the controversy surrounding voter ID among other issues.
We the people of this great nation are being led to believe that there are certain social classes and races for whom acquisition of a simple picture ID is unachievable. For whatever reason, the narrative is that these poor souls simply can't find their way to a DMV or DOT station, wait in that ridiculously long line and fork over the $5 for an identification card that most of us can't understand how anyone could possibly get through life without. These people need help! They're not as fortunate or intellectually blessed as the rest of us and therefore our expectations of them must be lowered.
It's the same with blacks whom despite having broken the proverbial glass ceiling with the nation's electing of its first black president, are still entitled to scholarships, jobs and even an entire association dedicated not to the equality of colored people, but to the advancement of colored people that the rest of us simply have no access to. I don't see this as a skin color thing. It's a pet class to liberals who once again feel is incapable of embracing the unprecedented level of freedom and equality America offers all her citizens, (making us the number one immigration destination on earth for well over a century), and creating a life for themselves that they find appealing. Therefore, again, we must lower our expectations in order for them to have a "fair shot".
We see the same thing in the illegal immigration issue. The liberal policy is basically, "If you can get here, you deserve to stay. Why should you be forced to follow the legal process by which to immigrate here? It's far too hard for someone like you and you're lucky to have saints like us to help you." The expectation is again lowered.
They've even taken this mindset to absurdity in that they're now going to save the earth and though their theories as to what the earth might need saving from change incessantly, the one constant is that the earth needs help and if you disagree it's because you are too rich, comfortable or short sighted to understand. Therefore they would have us end the debate before it's begun and hand them the reigns as they have it all figured out. In this case, centuries of scientific method and everything we know about observing our surroundings are lowered or abandoned entirely.

In all these cases they have it all figured out where no one else does.
Minorities can't thrive in America as they have for 236 years without the help of liberals. The poor can't get an ID without the help of liberals. The earth can't even survive without the help of liberals.
And in the case in point, that of mobs of crazed, barbaric Muslims killing, raping and destroying; Well these poor people are what they are can't be expected to control themselves as we the ultra evolved are expected to do. The implication is that these Muslims are dumb, carnal, uncontrollable, barbaric animals. Liberals understand this just as they know that EVERYONE is somehow less human, intelligent or capable than they are. Here again, the lowered expectations of humanity kicks in.
Muslims can't be expected to behave as humans because there is something inherently different or "less" about them.

So getting back to the point, were there an uprising similar to that which we've seen around the world from these "lesser" people staged by any group that liberals consider to be more like themselves and who do not fall into one of the groups liberals consider themselves "responsible" for, the reaction from our media would differ by roughly 180 degrees.
Don't believe me? Check out the media coverage of the LA riots or the riots following Katrina or even OWS and the despicable behavior and acts associated with that group. The liberal establishment sets itself at the pinnacle of humanity and the further an individual, race, faith or group of any kind gets from that peak, the fewer expectations liberals have for those to demonstrate intelligence and civility.

09-19-2012, 03:38 PM
I nominate this post:

This is an outstanding analysis and you hit all the bases. It brings to mind the rage our leftwingers have exhibited over the Tea Party movement. Here we have people mostly of the middle class -- the people that leftwingers pretend to support -- who've had enough of runaway government growth, borrowing, spending, and constant government abuse of the Constitution. Their platform does not even deal with race or the poor or the environment or other such leftwing infatuations and yet time and again the liberals attack the Tea Party movement based on race, the poor or -- insanely -- environmental issues.

Nary a Tea Party member has been captured on video pooping on a cop car, attempting to destroy bridges, or arrested for raping fellow members or hit the news for overdosing on drugs . . . and yet leftwingers hate TPers and their peaceful movement with every fiber of their being, and essentially because the TPers do not need their patronage to exist and are not asking to exist as parasites on the body politic.

Regardless of which man sits inside the Oval Office next year the first term of Barack Obama -- socialist and nation hater and of outright worship by leftwingers of Obama for those very reasons -- has become the declaration of outright cultural war in this nation, a war fought with video clips and -- yes -- Internet political forums and radio stations and media outlets.

There are two possible outcomes. Once again the notion of sane cultural and social standards become the general norm or the liberal dream of a completely licentious nation where anything goes, anywhere and at any time, finishes being the current destiny of the United States. The end results will be a community activist's wet dream come true.

As of now the liberals and their suborned media outlets are winning. Anyone can examine how extreme the social and cultural changes have been over the course of these last fifty years alone and then understand that if the Left has its way the decades to follow will see the elimination of any and all meaningful cultural standards whatsoever with no middle class remaining and only liberal elites in charge of anything important . . . the very people who hate this nation and everything for which it stands.

The main significance of Obama and his leftwingers in the media and inside Internet chatrooms where their essential approval of radical Muslim assaults against U.S. embassies across the middle east and their tacit sympathy for those same radicals murdering the consulate ambassador and staff is that this graphically illustrates the innate hatred of leftwingers for the United States itself and for our culture and our Constitutionally guaranteed rights and for our flag.

Will this get summarized and will there be a run-off vote if there are ties (which I suspect)?

My nomination and another thanks to S_I_C.

Put simply, same sex attraction is a disorder. It was according to the American Psychological Association (APA) for most of its history, until recently. Many psychologists still consider it to be a disorder to this day despite the fact that the APA no longer does.

For some folks though, this disorder is now the "non-disorder formerly known as disorder." It was a disorder in the DSM I and II published by the APA. But in the last publication, DSM IV, it was removed as a disorder. Why?

Protests by gay rights activists against the APA began in 1970 when the organization held its convention in San Francisco. The activists disrupted the conference by interrupting speakers and shouting down and ridiculing psychiatrists who viewed homosexuality as a mental disorder. In 1971, gay rights activist Frank Kameny worked with the Gay Liberation Front collective to demonstrate against the APA's convention. At the 1971 conference, Kameny grabbed the microphone and yelled, "Psychiatry is the enemy incarnate. Psychiatry has waged a relentless war of extermination against us. You may take this as a declaration of war against you." To put it bluntly, the American Psychological Association buckled and caved to protestors, and therefore have no legitimacy now.

So the APA can be, and is, wrong. The current APA thinks that they were "wrong back then," and "correct now." But certainly, the opposite can be true, that is was correct back then and wrong now. I think that they were correct before and wrong now because they now fear liberal retaliation and political correctness that did not exist before.

Besides, common sense tells you that it is unnatural. The basest instinct of any species is to procreate and perpetuate the species. That drive is extremely powerful in all creatures. Therefore, if you have an aversion to copulating with the opposite sex that is rightly called a disorder. It’s just not normal. Now I know that some pinheads like to point to what appears to be "homosexual" behavior in other species and therefore conclude that it’s natural. Well, that’s just plain stupid, and the reason is that what is natural for some species is not necessarily natural for others. What is natural for some species is not natural for others. Some flowers pollinate using bees. Does that mean it would be natural for us to incorporate bees into our sex? Of course not! Chickens lay eggs, and that is natural for them. So since laying eggs happens in nature, would it be normal for a woman to lay an egg and hatch a baby? Just because it happens in nature does not mean it’s natural for humans, and just because Same-sex behavior seems to appear in nature does not mean it is natural for us.

And therein lies the problem with Islam.
What the hell are we as a species doing giving so much credibility to such a backward ass theocratic train wreck as Islam? You can't pull the politics out of the faith nor the faith from the politics. And yet our touchy feely blind rush toward tolerance seems to over rule everything we've ever learned about mixing theology with politics...as long as that theology is NOT Christianity or Judaism. Not to mention all we've learned about Islam itself nor what we learn each day about the radicals who rule over these Draconian Islamic crap holes.

Liberals are an enigma. They like to bill themselves as so ultra-evolved and intelligent and yet seem utterly incapable of gleaning knowledge of ANYTHING without first hand experience. They can read stories of how these Muzzy dogs treat their women, their children, gays and "infidels" all day but it means nothing to them.
Not sure if it's arrogance in that they believe they can suddenly change centuries of human rights atrocities and barbarism or ignorance in that if Rachael Maddow or Chris Mathews doesn't tell them about it, it's simply untrue.

How to put America Back together...
A father wanted to read a magazine but was being bothered by his little girl.
She wanted to know what the United States looked like.

Finally, he tore a sheet out of his new magazine on which was printed the
map of the country. Tearing it into small pieces, he gave it to her and said,
'Go into the other room and see if you can put this together.

After a few minutes, she returned and handed him the map, correctly fitted and taped together.
The father was surprised and asked how she had finished so quickly..

'Oh,' she said, 'on the other side of the paper is a picture of Jesus.
When I got all of Jesus back where He belonged,
Then our country just came together.'

I found one, thanks Fear.

Very benvolent!

Well...it goes against my nature...LMAO..
Seriously..I'm sure it takes money to do this and, not that I'm rich, I don't mind supporting something I like.
I didn't intend to even mention it but I was having fun with you guys and your latin....
