Guidelines | consignes

DISCLAIMER: in my experience, the following doesn't apply to 99% of my readership. Unfortunately, experience also shows it has to be written down for the remaining 1%.

The short version, when it comes to my comments policy, goes down to a line taken from the (mediocre) second opus of the Matrix:

"I built this place. Down here, I make the rules."

Let's elaborate a bit:

  1. Try to stay on topic. If you have a beef against the cow-fart(1) induced climate change and this post is about monkey spanking(2), then it's not the place to draw your sword(3).
    I have nothing against a freewheeling conversation, but if it's off-topic AND stupid or offensive, then it will have a badly limited lifespan.
  2. Consider the two following statements…
    • I'm totally open-minded when it comes to rational ideas.
    • It is quite obvious that Anti-Americanism, anti-Semitism, Islamism, Nationalism, Racism, Collectivism(4) and Multiculturalism (non-exhaustive list) exist in complete contradiction with Reason.
    … And guess the total amount of tolerance you can expect from me if you indulge in any of these.
  3. If you shall persist in these ways nevertheless, understand that I'm not spending countless hours of work on this site to "reach out", "debate" with you, "understand" your "root causes" or "learn" about your religion. Unlike race, ideology is something we choose, and for which we must bear all responsibilities. I loathe your sick mindset and what you defend and promote. I've heard all your pitiful excuses for your despicable totalitarian psyche and your compulsion to coerce or enslave your fellow men and women in the name of some "greater good".
    So understand that this is not a public forum: it is my outpost in the culture war you wage against me, my kin, my rights and my freedom — thus, you will only be tolerated here, and only if I decide so. I call the shots and I owe you nothing. As a matter of fact, I don't like having you around, so the only argument you're truly entitled to hear from me would come, if you insist, amplified through the barrel of my Sig-Sauer high powered rifle(5) — because when it comes to intolerant scumbags, I'm an intolerant bastard.
    So keep your distances, and nobody gets hurt.
  4. I also have a very limited patience for social-democrats of all race and creed, center-of-center jellyfish and buttermonkey(6) hybrids, Blame-America-First (and always) Libertarians (usually of the Rothbardian school), Hollywood idiots & Festival-de-Cannes cretins and those Parisians who fancy themselves as an elite when they are nothing but the developed world's rednecks(7). However, I tend to ignore them, so they may consider themselves lucky if they manage to draw some sarcasm in colorful language from me.
  5. Yeah, and don't get me started on journalists and the Wonderful World of Mainstream Media...
  6. American and British soldiers (including the Commonwealth) stand on a special pedestal in my personal pantheon. Disrespect them here, and you'll quickly wish you'd rather stand naked in Mecca during Hajj, wearing only a sign that reads "Muhammad was a pedophile".
  7. I may moderate, remove or edit anything and give neither excuses nor explanations. It has nothing to do with "censorship": I am not a State, you are not a coerced citizen of said State and so you are always free to express yourself on your own facility and by your own means. Commenting is not a right, it is a privilege I grant or take away, according to my right as the owner of this place.
  8. My site is not awfully biased: it's shamelessly opinioned. If you're on my side, you get my vote and are free to rant 'n' roll. If not, live with it or go rot in the gutter.
  9. Oh and, if you're a vegan, be advised that I hunt, kill, cook(8) and eat all sorts of animals, and thoroughly enjoy the whole lot of it. Have fun with your carrots, Doc.
  1. Ha ha. Beef. Cow. Geddit?
  2. It's been known to happen.
  3. Neither is the guestbook by the way.
  4. That includes of course all its variations: Socialism, National-Socialist, Communism, Fascism, etc.
  5. With a loud 'Bang'
  6. Nope, don't know what species is that either, but it does sound like a particularly vile creature, doesn't it?
  7. Tell me London, New-York, Sydney or Tokyo, but Paris is a dump.
  8. Frequently in some sort of wine sauce or with loads of tears-pulling spices. Grapes and pepper count as veggie stuff right?

AVERTISSEMENT : selon mon expérience, ce qui suit ne s'applique pas à 99% de mes lecteurs. Malheureusement, l'expérience prouve aussi qu'il faut que cela soit écrit pour le pourcentage restant.

La version courte, concernant ma politique pour les commentaires, se résume à une ligne tirée du second (médiocre) volet de Matrix:

"J'ai construit cet endroit. Ici, je fais les lois."

Élaborons un brin :

  1. Il existe une subtile différence entre "être familier" et "traiter familièrement". Cela signifie que les culs-sales qui s'imaginent débarquer ici et me tutoyer comme si nous avions gardé les piquets de grève ensemble verront leur contribution à la conversation éradiquée sans autre forme de procès. Quelle que soit la pertinence de ladite contribution. Même si vous n'êtes Vraiment Pas Content® avec ce que j'écris, cela ne vous dispense pas de surveiller vos manières : tant que je n'ai pas été présenté à votre chère Maman, nous nous vouvoierons. Vu ?
  2. Évitez le hors-sujet. Si vous avez une rancune à l'égard de l'impact des pets de vache sur le changement climatique et que cet article traite de la fessée de macaque(1), alors ce n'est pas l'endroit d'où lancer votre croisade (2).
    Je n'ai rien contre une conversation à bâtons rompus, mais si c'est hors-sujet ET stupide ou insultant, ça aura une durée de vie salement limitée.
  3. Considérez les deux affirmations suivantes...
    • J'ai une ouverture d'esprit totale en ce qui concerne toutes idées rationnelles.
    • Il est évident qu' Anti-américanisme, anti-Sémitisme, Islamisme, Nationalisme, Racisme, Collectivisme(3) et Multiculturalisme (liste non-exhaustive) existent en complète contradiction avec la Raison.
    ... Et tâchez de devinez la dose totale de tolérance que vous pouvez attendre de moi si vous cédez à l'une de ces sirènes.
  4. Si vous deviez cependant persister dans ces voies, comprenez que je ne dépense pas un nombre incalculable d'heures de travail sur ce site pour vous "tendre la main", "débattre" avec vous, "comprendre" vos "causes profondes" ou "apprendre à connaitre" votre religion. Contrairement à la race, l'idéologie est le résultat de nos choix, et nous devons en supporter l'entière responsabilité. J'abhorre votre mentalité tarée, et ce que vous défendez et promouvez. J'ai entendu toutes vos pitoyables excuses pour votre détestable psyché de totalitaire et votre compulsion à forcer et réduire vos semblables en esclavage au nom d'un quelconque "intérêt général".
    Comprenez donc que ceci n'est pas un forum publique : c'est mon avant-poste dans la guerre culturelle que vous lancez contre moi, mes semblables, mes droits et ma liberté — vous ne serez que toléré ici, et seulement si je le décide. Je tire les ficelles, et ne vous doit rien. En fait je n'aime pas vous voir dans le coin, et en conséquence les seuls arguments de ma part auxquels vous puissiez réellement prétendre, si vous insistez, se transmettent par le canon de ma carabine de fort calibre Sig-Sauer(4) — Parce dès qu'ils s'agit d'ordures intolérantes, je suis un salaud d'intolérant.
    Alors gardez vos distances, et personne ne sera blessé.
  5. J'ai aussi un patience très limitée pour les sociaux-démocrates de toute confession et couleur, les centristes-du-centre fruits de l'union d'une méduse et d'un cul de singe, les Libertarés de l'École Rothbard conditionnés au "C'est la faute à l'Amérique, toujours et partout", Les Idiots d'Hollywood et les Crétins-de-Cannes, de même que ces parisiens qui se prennent pour une élite alors qu'ils ne sont que les bouseux du monde développé (5). J'ai cependant tendance à les ignorer, et ils peuvent donc s'estimer chanceux s'ils arrivent à me soutirer ne serait-ce qu'un sarcasme en langage fleuri.
  6. Ouais, et ne me lancez pas sur les journalistes et le Monde Merveilleux des Medias...
  7. Les soldats Américains et Britanniques (parmi lesquels j'inclue le Commonwealth) prennent place sur un piédestal particulier dans mon panthéon personnel. Manquez leur de respect ici, et vous souhaiterez rapidement vous trouver plutôt à la Mecque en période Hajj, tout nu avec seulement une pancarte autour du coup sur laquelle on puisse lire "Mahomet était un pédophile".
  8. Je peux modérer, supprimer ou éditer quoi que ce soit, sans fournir d'excuses ni d'explications. Cela n'a rien à voir avec de la “censure”, pour une raison très simple : je ne suis pas un État, vous n'êtes pas un citoyen opprimé dudit État et demeurez donc libre de vous exprimer sur votre propre support et par vos propres moyens. Commenter n'est pas un droit, c'est un privilège que j'accorde ou refuse selon mon droit de propriétaire des lieux.
  9. Mon site n'est pas affreusement partial, il est impudemment orienté. Si vous êtes de mon côté, vous avez mon aval et êtes libre de disserter à l'envi. Sinon, faites avec ou allez crever dans le caniveau.
  10. Oh, et si vous êtes végétarien, sachez que je chasse, tue, cuisine(6) et bouffe toutes sortes d'animaux, et que j'apprécie le tout sans aucune retenue. Soyez heureux avec vos carottes Docteur.
  1. C'est déjà arrivé.
  2. C'est aussi valable pour le Livre d'Or.
  3. Ce qui inclue aussi ses variantes : Socialisme, National-Socialisme, Communisme, Fascisme, etc.
  4. Avec un gros 'Bang'
  5. Londres, New-York, Sydney ou Tokyo, d'accord. Mais Paris, c'est un bled de cul-terreux.
  6. Généralement avec une sauce au vin, ou alors des poignées d'épices à t'arracher la tripaille. Le raisin et les piments, ça compte comme trucs de végétarien, non ?

Help

  1. As an additional layer of defense against comment spamming and surf-by shooting, I enacted a set of restrictions on how you can post a comment as a simple guest on my site (i.e. either when you're not registered as a member, or registered but not logged in), starting with pre-publishing comment approval. As approving comments will take a certain — and variable — amount of time, I invite you to check-in if you're serious about joigning the conversation in real time.
  2. Non-authenticated users are also limited to the following HTML tags:
    • Bold (<strong></strong>)
    • Italic (<em></em>)
    • Underline (<u></u>)
    • Quote (<blockquote></blockquote>)
    Don't bother entering any other tags, as they will automagically get stripped on posting.
  3. Members have access to a greater range of tags and publishing tools, and they can also choose to be informed by email of follow-up comments, for any given thread.
  4. Members also have an easier and more straightforward posting process. Some of the system defenses are lowered for them, and the details fields (name, etc.) are pre-filled with the information they entered in their profile.
  5. Members have a greater chance to enter the Kingdom of Heaven, while it will be assumed that, in addition to an opinion, strangers have stinky feet and greasy fingers. They may therefore be regarded with great condescension by regular members and the dissident frogman alike, and derided accordingly. So wash your feet, your hands, and register.
  6. A reminder: you decide what you write, no matter how brilliant or stupid it might be, and the fact that I let it go published doesn't mean I condone, agree or disagree with it—no matter if I answer it or not. Hey, you're supposed to be a responsible adult, right?

If you need further help with the site, you may want to check the Field Manual. Ultimately, you can also drop me a line. I usually don't answer jellyfish and buttermonkey(1) hybrids however.

  1. Nope, don't know what species is that either, but it does sound like a particularly vile creature, doesn't it?
  1. En défense contre le spam et les tirs isolés, j'ai établi un ensemble de restrictions sur l'ajout de commentaires par les simples visiteurs sur le site (i.e. soit lorsque vous n'êtes pas enregistré comme membre, soit lorsque vous l'êtes, mais n'avez pas ouvert une session), dont notamment la modération avant publication. L’approbation des commentaires prenant un temps certain et variable, je vous invite donc à vous inscrire, si vous envisagez sérieusement de participer à la conversation en temps réel.
  2. Les utilisateurs non authentifiés sont également limités aux balises HTML suivantes :
    • Gras (<strong></strong>)
    • Italique (<em></em>)
    • Souligné (<u></u>)
    • Citation (<blockquote></blockquote>)
    Ne vous fatiguez pas à en utiliser d'autres, le texte passe par un filtre de suppression lors de la publication.
  3. Les membres ont accès à une plus large sélection d'outils et de balises, et ils peuvent choisir pour chaque 'conversation' à laquelle ils prennent part d'être informé par email des réponses.
  4. Les membres ont également un "processus de publication" plus simple et direct. Certaines défenses du système sont abaissées pour eux, et les champs des détails sont pré-remplis avec les informations qu'ils ont entré dans leur profil.
  5. Les membres ont une plus grande chance d'entrer au Royaume des Cieux, tandis que l'on considèrera que, en sus d'une opinion, les visiteurs venus d'ailleurs ont les doigts gras et les pieds sales. Ils pourront de ce fait être traité avec grande condescendance par les autres membres et le dissident frogman de même, et ridiculisés en conséquence. Alors lavez vos mains, vos pieds, et inscrivez-vous.
  6. Pour mémoire : vous décidez de ce que vous écrivez, aussi brillant ou stupide que cela soit, et le fait que j'en autorise la publication ne signifie pas que je l'approuve ou le désapprouve, et cela que j'y réponde ou non. Hé, vous êtes censé vous comporter en adulte responsable, s'pas ?

Si vous avez besoin de plus d'aide avec le site, jetez un œil au manuel d'instruction. Au pire, vous pouvez également m'envoyer un mot. J'ai cependant tendance à ne pas répondre aux fruits de l'union d'une méduse et d'un cul de singe.

Thank you Dear Frogman.  I was waiting for you to comment on this mess and you did not disappoint.  We are Americans and we do not give up.  The weak among us will fall off or wake up.  It is not too late for us as long as we remember that if we are not careful, we too, are in danger of becoming a prophet of our own demise.

Thank you for speaking the truth.

As much as it pains me to think the once-mighty US might flounder, it’s harder to face continuing the status quo when it looks like one is bailing out the Titanic with a coffee cup.  More than a few of the states who voted predominantly for Romney, now have voices raised for secession, because we are fed up with voting one way across the heartland, and having the hordes in Chicago, New York, and Los Angeles vote the other way and overwhelmingly cancel out any wishes we have about the stewardship of the country.  Especially here in Texas, the voices are being raised again for independence, after we voted almost 3-to-1 against the Chicago Way.  A smaller core group have been working toward that independence for decades, since 1995, so this isn’t some Johnny-come-lately reactionary thing out of spite against Obama. (Usually our opponents cry racism, which is their knee-jerk reaction to everything, but is funny since we’ve been at this since Clinton’s first term, and continued thru his second and both terms of Bush.)  Only now are enough people waking up and seeing the corruption in the machine that will enslave their grandchildren to debt, and they want an alternative of true liberty, which is breaking away from the Federal Leviathan.

As the t-shirt says: Texas- it’s bigger than France!

A very good read, Mr. Frogman.  Yes, we are wallowing in our misery at the moment, working it out you might say.  But tomorrow, we’ll get up and try again, because that’s what we do, in part thanks to you, who taught us the difference between the shooty end and the no shooty end.

RebeccaH, those of us who were in the Marine Corps remember which end is up. The Frogman’s course was just a refresher.

I’m seeing an attempt by al-‘Bama to use the UN weapons treaty to try to disarm the US. The pointy end of the implement will come into use quickly in that case.

I must apologize for the inordinate use of pixels but wish to bring forward some wisdom from the ages. "It’s easier to fool people than to convince them that they have been fooled." Samuel Clemens (Mark Twain).

And at the risk of invoking ire from my fellow commenters, my definition of a Libertarian is one who is a Progressive and doesn’t want the government to take his money.

Here here Frogman.  Well spoken and laid out, as usual.  I guess sometimes the lesson that must be learned needs to be taught the hard way.  I only pray that the outcome isn’t too painful for all of those mindless sheeple that brought this upon themselves (and me for that matter).  I have no doubt that American-the-Phoenix will one day be reborn and rise again.  I hope that my daughter lives to see it, as I don’t expect that in my lifetime (I’m only 37, but these swings tend to take a couple of generations to stabilize).  Keep speaking the truth, and someday, I pray, it will be heard by those who need to hear it.

 

Rock on Frogman!

This last friday I and many others were the guests at my oldest grand daughters grade school tribute and honor for their veterans.

It was a  wonderful experience and display of old fashioned patrotism. The kids handed out small plaques of praise to each vet who was there. They sang, had skits and generally praised America’s Veterans.

Many an old eye had something in it.

I and those like me are not in dispair nor will ever be in it. We are pissed and know that times are tough but that we and our ilk will prevail in the end. My two grand daughters and two grand sons will never give in to the bastards. I taught them better, as I also taugh my two children.

We will never give in or up.

Bravo, and well said, Sir!

I do fear that our fragile republic is going down.  Demographics is against us.  No, I’m not talking about the rise of young voters or Latino voters.  I’m talking about the rise of stupid voters.  In poll after poll, 65-70% of Americans believed that they were on the wrong path.  And last week, the majority voted to continue down that path.  Many know that the path is unsustainable, but they don’t care.  The majority voted out of fear and revenge—not love of country, and they do not understand the importance of freedom and self reliance.

And I do not use the word “stupid” lightly.  There is a difference between ignorance and stupidity: ignorance is curable.  As you correctly stated, the proof is all around us.  For years, liberals routinely state that the US needs to more more like Europe.  It should be very clear that being like Europe is a bad idea.

We need to talk to these stupid, selfish people about why the path that they have chosen is not sustainable.  We have to cut through decades of mainstream medium propaganda and public education.  I’m not sure it can be done.  I’m quite sure that the leadership of the GOP can’t.

“A democracy cannot exist as a permanent form of government. It can only exist until the voters discover that they can vote themselves largesse from the public treasury. From that moment on, the majority always votes for the candidates promising the most benefits from the public treasury with the result that a democracy always collapses over loose fiscal policy, always followed by a dictatorship. The average age of the world’s greatest civilizations has been 200 years.” ― Alexis de Tocqueville (possibly Alexander Tyler)

Always interesting. There are two unique American characteristics that may yet stave off collapse. One you allude to - the “survivalist” gun mentality.   No, we are not going to barricade the doors to hold off the Obama Revenoor Collectivists but, Americans are still strongly disposed to telling the government, “don’t tell me what the F to do!”  If we did not have that disposition, we wouldn’t be Americans.  We’d be French.  And yes, your points are well taken, it is possible that the populace may abandon their Americaness in favor of Frenchdom. However, the other variable is G-d.  Even when G-d was a Frenchman or an Englishman or a Muslim - He was the French State; or the English State; or the Authoritative Allah.   The United States was founded by a bunch of folk of all nationalities and religions that claimed that the one thing they had in common was that each individual had the G-d given right to his own individual relationship with G-d.  We do NOT have to have the State as a mediator. And, America is still the most Christian (or Jewish for that matter, outside of Israel) nation on Earth.  There are tens of millions and more of hard core believing Christians (and Jews) who will refuse to let the State tell them that their G-d is illegal and must be abolished. If push comes to shove, it will be these folk from whence the revolution comes against America becoming a new Europe…

"...tell that to those Americans who found themselves outnumbered and outgunned by far more disadventageous enemy rations, whether in a forest in the Ardennes, a hill in Korea, a valley in Vietnam or a mountain in Afghanistan…"

THEY had the advantage of being free to openly kill the enemy… perhaps theres a lesson there?

History shows only one way out of this socialist torpor:  War.  Not drone strikes in distant “stans”, but war on your own soil, with mass death and destruction.  World War II ended the Great Depression not because it forced governments to spend money, but because it forced people to take responsibility for their own survival.

Things almost fell apart in 2008, but central banks kept the peace with an endless flood of free money.  When this reaches its inevitable conclusion, there will be war.

I would like to thank you for essentially pointing out what I’ve been saying the moment Romney congratulated Obama for his win.

This isn’t the time for my fellows to burn the flag and mope. To turn the guns at each other and to be snarky.

It’s a time to regroup, reload, and reengage. What they don’t understand is that it’s one election, and the best bet is to keep all the areas we control and to expand it. I’ve seen the county-by-county breakdown, that is a masisve sea of red compared to highly populated, rich, and Democratically controlled coasts.

The self-defeating narrative the current Conservatives have, the haughty ivory tower attitude of the Libertarians. That isn’t gonna be helpful in the immediate electoral future, particularly now that the Democrats have seen what had happened in 2010 and would be ready for us.

I hope we stop this crap soon. There’s work to be done.

Thanks Frogie. As always, great insight.

What scares me most is that we (the United States) have become a nation of sheepeole. There is no outrage, there is no outcry, no riots, nothing but muted whines.

So as you so eloquently said, "Just as the French, when you realize that the effect of the political model that you tout today cascade and accumulate to the point where you have effectively handed that oligarchy a permanent majority that begins to feed on its pawns-you-it will be too late and your loss will be complete."

Nothing but great wailing and the knashing of teeth…

Oh sorry - I meant that last comment for the next post, not this one. Sorry if my comments confused anyone.

Thank you. I needed that wake-up call.

And, for the record, I am glad you are still here after all these years. I will visit as regularly as I once did.

Thank you Froggy! That made me shed a few patriotic tears. You’re an honorary American hero, regardless of where you’re from.
