We've already raised enough to cover our operating costs for the current quarter and are now working on the new equipment fund!! Less than $6k to go!! We're planning on replacing some of our aging and unreliable equipment and beefing up our system before the general elections. Hope to pay for half of it this quarter and the rest next quarter.

Woo hoo!! Let's get 'er done!!

No matter who gets the nomination or eventually wins the election, we're going to need FR more than ever to hold their feet to the fire!!

We need FR and FR needs you!!

Resistance to tyranny is obedience to God!!

We are the resistance!!

I have to share something encouraging with y’all.

My 16-year-old daughter is learning about capitalism, socialism, and communism in World History. (I used to homeschool, but allowed her to attend publik skool for high school.) Her teacher asked the students to write a one-page statement taking a position on why capitalism, socialism, or communism is the better economic system.

The encouraging part? He told them that if they chose socialism, they must also write about communism because socialism leads straight to communism.

A publik skool world history teacher speaking truth.

Has somebody got Two Grand just burning a hole in their pocket?

If so you could have the honour of finishing this Freepathon off.

Think of the bragging rights on the tag line !

Just a thought.

A New England Love

 
  He loved the woods,
that ran for endless miles
under ever-changing skies -
the brooks and the streams
that laughed down the
hillsides -
hidden by trees and bushes -
nestled among big oaks,
majestic elms,
gracious maples
and white-barked birches -
He loved the air
that was so sweet,
that was like water,
quenching his thirst.
Cool, warm,
hot or cold -
It was satisfying.
The dirt roads
running aimlessly
over the mountains -
calling adventure
seekers to travel them.
The mountains,
while not as Grand as
the Rockies or as
Splendored as the
Sierras, nonetheless,
were inviting.
Friendly, not intimidating.
Old pals, not forbidding
strangers.
They shouted 'Climb Us! '
And he did. Catching
the breezes as they
passed over the
ridges.
He loved the seasonal changes.
Autumn...on fire, the trees
burned bright against
the dark evergreens and the
peaceful view of the
ocean of sky.
Winter, changing the shape of things
to suit her mood. Hiding familiar
places. Coating everything
white and lovely.
Spring, that Al Jolson song,
April Showers, playing
over and over again in
his head. The art of
trying to get out of one's
dirt driveway in March.
Summer. The sultry
days of leisurely swims
and warm toes encrusted in
sand-filled beaches,
dodging cow-piles in
the open pastures.
Though gone away, he
never was away;
He could return whenever
he wished,
in his mind.
To today and yesterday
he could return...
and tomorrow, he had
with him always.

I have my page set on “Articles” and “Everything”. That way I get them all and weed out the RF and FReeper Canteen. I usually avoid articles about death too, like the 2 yr old that drowned.
