Can anybody beat IncPen's join date? 12-03-1997.

Among the posters to this thread so far, I doubt it.

But Doug From Upland joined the next day.

(And they both have me beat by about 4 months. < }B^)

Wow Jim....ten years!! And I remember the days when we were on the Prodigy Whitewater board going over all the Clinton scandals. What fun we had digging up various bits of information from Arkansas....all the excitement we felt when someone would bring us one of their excellent "finds". To me it seems like yesterday but oh how far you have come with Free Republic. One day you announced to our small group that you were thinking of starting a web site...little did we dream it would grow into what it has become. Bravo and thanks for starting it and recognizing just how much it was needed!
Any other Prodigy Whitewater people still hanging around?

Some of us are leftovers from the days of the 'Whitewater' page.

I wish I'd been around FR in those days. Alas, I was slow backing out of the garage onto the informational superhighway. But I'm here now, with bells on!

Hooorrraaaayy for Free Republic and the ability to finally expose the lying media, research Democrat lies and connect the dots on Democrat treachery!!

thanks for the ping mo1

I wish I'd been around FR in those days.
Alamo-Girl has done a tremendous labor of love over the years documenting much of the events of the Clinton years at her website. She was and still is a poster here and spent untold hours putting this data together from the old FreeRepublic site and other sources I'm sure. A researcher's dream if one chooses to spend some time there.

Whew, 10 years ago, Prodigy, Compuserve, and AOL, were the only games in the Internet town, along with the Netscape browser.

The internet broke the liberal monopoly on the liberal media, and it is no wonder hillary rodham clinton, stated that there should be gates on the internet.

Press Release: Support the Troops and Their Mission Weekend Sept. 22-23 in Wash., D.C.
SupportTheTroopsWeekend.org ^ | Thursday, September 14, 2006

Posted on 09/14/2006 1:43:45 PM EDT by kristinn

"Support the Troops and Their Mission Weekend"
Will Spread Message of Victory-Not Retreat-in the Global War on Terror

Washington, DC-Military supporters from around the country will gather in support for the Second Annual Support the Troops and Their Mission Weekend in Washington, D.C. from September 22-23, 2006. The grassroots effort by military family members, veterans and other patriotic Americans will honor and celebrate the progress made by the men and women defending our nation in the Global War on Terror.


Events will begin on the morning of Friday, September 22 as supporters visit congressional offices to encourage congressional members to support America's efforts to defeat violent Islamic fascism in Iraq, Afghanistan and around the world. That evening, at 7 p.m. supporters will gather at the main gate to Walter Reed Army Medical Center, 7200 Georgia Ave., NW, Washington, D.C., in a show of appreciation for the sacrifices made by wounded soldiers and their families to protect Americans from terrorism. The gathering that evening will mark the 75th consecutive Friday of the Walter Reed troop support gathering.


The Support the Troops and Their Mission Rally will be held on Saturday, September 23 from noon to 3 p.m. at the Sylvan Theater on the grounds of the Washington Monument. The speakers will feature Gold Star and Blue Star family members, as well as veterans and other notables. The theme of the rally will be victory in the Global War on Terror.


To date, confirmed speakers include:


o Larry Schweikart – co-author of Patriots History of the United States
o Mychal Massie - Project 21
o Richard August - father of Cpt Matthew J. August, KIA 1/27/04, Iraq
o Capt. Larry Bailey, USN Ret. – Vets for the Truth
o Ray and Becky Davis - Military Families Voice of Victory
o Diana Irey - Washington County Commissioner, Pennsylvania
o Nikki Mendicino - POW/MIA activist
o Kevin Martin - veteran, USN
o Eve Tidwell - God Bless Ft. Benning
o Frank Schaeffer – co-author of AWOL, author Faith of Our Sons-a Father's Wartime Diary

In the wake of the September 11th five-year anniversary, it is important that service men and women and their families are given the support, appreciation and gratitude they deserve.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, MR ROBINSON

Wish you were here. (at the DC Rally)
