It is possible to post using the iPad. I have done it by setting up the post in advance and then emailing it to myself. Then, just copy/paste onto the Free Republic site.

Very similar. The selection of text on the Fire is a bit easier. The browser on the fire—Silk, took a little getting used to, but it is fairly intuitive.

You are setting the bar pretty high there. I have had a kindle fire for almost a year and still didn’t even know if I could post class from it.

If you can receive an email on a device, with the text properly HTML coded for Free Republic, you can use the device to copy and paste.

Bill Clinton would probably say that he was in bed and yelled, “Hillary,” but Hurley was in the next room and thought she heard her name so she went into his bedroom.

LOL! he was serious too!

i am unaware of Lithuania ever being part of Poland. But yes, Lithuanians are tall and have lots of basketball players. i am only 5’4” but my brother is 6’4” and his son, my nephew, is 6’5”. i am married to a short dago and for some reason my kids got more short dago genes than my genes, but my brothers kids are all tall. My nieces are about 5’10 or 11” [and they wear heels which drives my daughters insane!]
