      We’re breaching the shell of the cocoon. Sure could use ya, ol’ Pro.

      I keep imaginin’ him swoopin’ back in in the eleventh hour Han Solo style & takin’ scalps.

    • tranquil.night says:


      See what we’re dealing with Pro?

    • beautyofreason says:

      I agree. He has a razor sharp wit. Does anyone know why he stopped posting?

      “Our country has invented the modern world. We survived a revolution, a civil war, two world wars, and a head-on attack by communism. Now we teeter on the brink of extinction from an internal revolution by people who are too cowardly to even state their intentions. Americans have always been too busy taming wildernesses and inventing the future to bother much with politics. We have depended on our leaders and have been rewarded with Washington to Lincoln to Eisenhauer to Reagan. But we have now gone 30 years with mediocrities and subversives. While our leaders fiddled, the adherants of the other worldviews you mention have accelerated their efforts to cripple the worldview that is responsibility for 95% of the goodness in the world today. The question that will be answered within a year and a half is whether the Tea Partiers, the Rubios, Palins, Wests, Bachmans and Jindals have woken up too late…or just in time.” – ProReason, 7/17/11 http://sweetness-light.com/archive/the-hive-please-talk-among-yourselves-2#comment-202808

      Lord as my witnesses, we’re doing all we can.

      BeautyofReason: Pro fell to apathy during a harsh and extended spat that was a solid microcosm of the tensions that built overall and finally peaked during the Republican primary. The cruel irony for me about that chapter was that while I was the one who for month after month ranted and cursed the Romney campaign, Pro largely played the role of Romney ‘apologist’ for much of our correspondences during the early primary process. He truly never had that big of a problem with the guy. It wasn’t until Team Romney & Team GOP Establishment threw the Conservative’s standards for fair, free, and honest political competition out for ugly scorched earth tactics that Pro became completely disenchanted. Those who witnessed the final straw that broke the proverbial back probably remember what exactly happened. Very sad :(

      Maybe he is still out there fightin’ the good fight in his own style. But clearly, many of us really appreciated & desired his wit, wisdom, and fearlessness. Cheers, old friend.

    We need all able-hands on deck, manning the guns to get through this.
