Weren't we all? I know for sure that I was.
Thanks, RB! Happy New Year to you!
I don’t post so much now. Been totally disgusted with the past 2 years.
However, people have been asking me about landrights issues, so maybe it’s time to re-engage.
Still full of piss and vinegar tho’.
Congrats on your anniversary. Just a couple more months for me to get to 12 yrs.
I then joined after a great thread by BKO, inspired me to join. (Barbra K. Olson, who now smiles down on us all!)
Onward FReepers! To decades more!
p.s. Thanks again to all of you that supported my son-in-law, Jesse Kelly, in AZ CD-8.
Explorer89, thanks for mentioning MrConfettiMan. Joe was a wonderful Freeper. It was a real loss to us when he passed, after a valiant battle with a brain tumor. A very fine man.
That’s one downside of being here a dozen years. Thoise good folks on the Freeper Remembrance Wall are people you talked with and enjoyed.
TJ—I went throught the teenage years once—that was enough!
BTW, your tagline makes me smile, because I can’t figure it out! Tell me what it means.
So much history, so many people, in such a short time. Ash, the Hurtgen forest, the pitiful good by’s of those offended, Our Republic and Constitution continually under attack from domestic enemas, our out of control government and Free Republic marches on.
Thanks for the write-up. From one “old Freeper” to another ... congratulations and Happy New Year (and here’s to many more).
VRWC—how are you! You Texans are great folks!
Can you believe that—a few short months and you’ll be here 13 years. Wow.
Happy New Year!
LOL! I would have been sorely disappointed if that were not true Pod!
I don't post nearly as much as I once did either. Like it or not this place HAS changed over the years.
Great to "see" you again!
We have all come a long way! On the day I learned about FR, I was watching Dan Rather dictate and interpret the election on See B.S. Let us not forget where we have taken Conservatism since then!
There are two "Prov"s on FR as well, Prov1322 and Prov3456, and I have met both of them (one male and one female) as well; so you and I will just have to meet one of these days.
I have you beat by a few months too. Aug 1998 but actually I had another screen name from before that. Had I known that sigh up dates were recorded I might have kept it. I wonder if you can find a discarded sign up date.
Thanks, I still miss him. We used to drink our coffee together in the mornings and bitch about politics before our day began. I got to see his “Fire the Liar” sign first!
FR has been an "island of sanity" from which I still cannot break my dependence. And why would I want to anyway?
The other day FR was down and I thought "what if FR went down for good" (because of net neutrality, Jim Robinson just getting sick of us and leaving, etc.) and I got cold sweats.
The value FR has had for me is hard to put into words.
astiunde, how cool was that. Buckhead took down Dan Rather and CBS NEws while they were deliberately trying to influence a Presidential election.
That was one major way Free Republic affected history. Imagine if that horseface old Commie, John Kerry, won in 2004! ((((Shudder)))
Many of us were aware of her. Few could have predicted that she would provide the ray of hope for conservatism in the context of the 2008 elections, which is the topic of the essay.
