So how far back does the Free Republic archive articles and how can I go back and find some of the first threads that started the whole thing off ?
It struck me I've hung out for a while and it was well established when I joined.
Be fun to see what we were focused on day one. For me anyway.
Not really...This place was hopping when I stumbled in.
When I started lurking in 1998 the main topic was Whitewater. Alamo-Girl I think has archived a lot of articles from that time. Is that correct Alamo-girl?
Thats the guy
And then there was Illuminati, worried about the Bildebergers et al., and Inspector "the moon walk was done in a studio" Callahan (or some such screen name), who discerned conspiracies under every bed to which most all were insufferably blind.
I am 7154!
THAT was good!
I wonder if someone has a copy of the first thread. It would be interesting to read what it was about.
I didn't have any tags open.
Early on, a wonderful member of his forum, Alamo-Girl, was knocking herself out, collecting and filing in some organized way, a whole lot of that information; she was making it easier to keep track of things and deserves special mention, here.
She also ran a welcome page for new members, where FRPR's pitched in to help newbies become acquainted with how the forum worked and how to post.
As I recall, you and he used to go round and round.
The saga of Clarity was rather interesting, once upon a time a lawyer, with certain clients.
For one to get a comprehensive answer, A+Bert should be pinged, wherever he is!
Can you work a clutch? ;^)
I've forgotten. ;)
We got along very well. He "respected" me. That shows just how crazy he was. :)
Thanks! How and where did you find that page?
A Free Republic
If you believe that our nation has been drifting away from Abraham Lincoln's "government of the people", or that our government has deserted our Founding Fathers' vision of a Free Republic as set forth in the Constitution, or that our government has mushroomed completely out of control, or that the so-called free press has been "protecting" us from the ugly truth -- read on.
On these pages we hope to bring you news of the nation not only from the mainstream media, but also from lesser known sources - small papers, newsletters, talk shows, government publications, online websites, and gasp, even from conspiracy theorists (sometimes there really are fires beneath all that smoke).
And most importantly, we hope to involve you in the process. If you believe that an informed public is the first step in returning to a Free Republic, and that this is the way to ensure that we remain free, then we hope you will help us make this a useful and active forum. Please join us in seeking out and disseminating the truth. Please join a discussion group in our Forum . Registration is quick, easy, immediate and free.

You were saying? :-)
How does one, get one's number?
