The Freepers Greatest Threads, and Posts!

Why not spend a few minutes reminiscing about the funniest, most poinient, historic, or heartwarming moments on FREE REPUBLIC. Take the time to scan your bookmarks, search your memory, and scratch your head, Freep a friend for help, but find them, and share them with the greatest forum on the WORLD WIDE WEB.

This is the time to show-off, and post those one-liners and rejoiners that make the posters on the Jim Robinson website, that continues to make history, untangle quamirers, and pop enigmas. Rememer Jim and this site as you go down memory lane, and drop a few bucks on the fundraiser, as a bit of thanks!!

I've got my coffee, and a plastic cover on my keyboard in case I am drinking when the best of the best pop up without a warning... Have at it, you are the best......

Fundraising posts only happen quarterly, and are gone as soon as we meet the goal. Help make it happen.

Now, this is a crying shame. I've cherished this classic link for a long while: Breaking: NSA Cold Busted on FreeRepublic!, but now I see it has been deleted (well after the fact). Maybe if we ask the Admin Moderator really nicely, it can come back for a few days.

I also remember one of the earliest thread deletions on FR: "The Anus of the POTUS" (no link). It was active in the days after the Starr Report was released.

I don't know how to access the archives, but my favorite thread was on Election night 2002 when some Freeper hacked into DU's website and posted ALL YOUR SENATE BELONG TO US. Or something like that.

We then spent the next few days laughing our A$$es off at some of the posts over there.

Its one of the few times I remember Jim Robinson letting us link, and/or copy and paste from that evil site.

There was actually some guy asking everybody for a hug because he just didn't think he could make it in a Republican controlled country.

I'm going to be shameless and say the Caption Rush thread, after Rush mentioned FR on his radio show.

Another one was a thread about a feminazi who wrote an article, critical of the male chefs on Food Network. I made a comment about the author of the article and a feminazi lurker got mad and took me to task. Several of us ganged up on her and exposed her for what she was.

Remembrance Archive: Free Republic Threads From 9-11-01
Free Republic ^ | 9-11-01 | FReepers
Posted on 02/01/2002 9:08 PM PST by Starrgaizr

Upon request, I have collected links to many of the earliest threads from September 11, 2001 below. I reviewed threads from the very first FR report (http://www.freeRepublic.com/focus/fr/520255/posts)through thread number 520326. Feel free to add other significant threads, including photo archives. Bumping this thread periodically instead of the original threads will also avoid scaring people with the headlines.

Bookmark this thread, and bump it from time to time when the nation and the press seems to forget why we need resolve in the face of evil. Forgive some of the early misinformation and broken photo links, and recall the horror and fury.

While I was still an occasional lurker, there was a thread that really showed me the creativity and humor of freepers. It was about a set of diagrams that Al Gore drew (for some unknown evil purpose, no doubt), but freepers offered their interpretations of those diagrams.

Anyone who can help me find that thread will be rewarded with gratitude.

I also remember one of the earliest thread deletions on FR: "The Anus of the POTUS" (no link).
It was active in the days after the Starr Report was released.
Could THIS be that thread?
Topic: White Water

The anus of POTUS


Bartlebooth

GETTING TO THE BOTTOM OF THE TEXT

Footnotes 210 and 237 of the Starr Report allude to "oral-anal contact" between the President and Monica Lewinsky, but leave unanswered the intriguing question: whose tongue, whose anus?
