Are you ready for a FReepathon?
The state of our FR is strong!
Our big legal bill is now paid off and our budgetary requirements are now reduced. For the first time in our history, our monthly donations are now bringing in more than 50% of our quarterly budget! Thanks to our generous membership and the settlement with the City of Fresno, we now have a comfortable cash buffer and should have no problems meeting our coming tax payments and other obligations.
I've recalculated our estimated budget requirements for the remainder of the year and have posted them here:
We just completed the first loop of our nationwide tour and we had a great time! We traveled through eleven states in three weeks and FReeped with, met with and dined with FReepers in ten cities and from at least a dozen chapters. It's great to see all our old friends again and to meet new ones. Joining a gathering of FReepers is just like going a family reunion. Very warm and friendly and just like home. Thank you all so much for your gracious hospitality and friendship!
We hope to visit all fifty states and most of our chapters within the next year or so. We hope to visit our LA Chapter on the 1st of August to tour the Reagan Library. We hope to visit our San Diego Chapter sometime this month to welcome home the USS Ronald Reagan. We're also planning a Pacific Northwest Tour in August. In January, we're planning a trip across the South and down into Florida and then up the Eastern Coast to Washington, DC for the Free Republic George W Bush Inaugural Ball II!! Woo hoo!!
Well, with the war in Iraq all but concluded, the trial of the Butcher of Iraq about to start, and the election season heating up, I'm sure that FR is going to be THE place to be to get the very latest in news and conservative discussion in the coming months.
Thank you FReepers for making FR the premier conservative forum on the Internet!
Looking forward to the coming campaign season! Good luck to all and may the very best people be chosen to lead our great nation!
Thank God for our successes thus far in the war for freedom and may He guide us through to complete victory over tyranny and terrorism.
Thank you and may God bless you all.
I hope so - no promises - but I really hope so!!!!
I plan on being in DC for the next FReep Inaurgural Ball - so doing CPAC also might not be financially feasible.
That is just SO gross...........
You are correct. It is good to be acquainted with someone with your experience and expertise. I do thank you even though you are admittedly a "whippersnapper".
I have caught a "whole sack of squirrels and have them in a box next to my computers just now.
(Good heavens! They are noisy.)
The really great thing about using the squirrels instead of the "bicycle method" is this:
Those squirrels that are not "up to par,...that is to say pulling their own weight", I shall use to make "Squirrel and Dumplins". Ahhh. What a great food that is!
(That is to say, they shall always be fed and watered.)
Then again, Fried Squirrel is very good to. I love it "pan fried".
What with some fried Okra, corn-on-the-cob, taters and gravey..........
(It just cain't get a whole lot better that thet....)
(A man might just think he'd "gone to heaven" with that kinda "good eatin')
I do believe a man of your obvious experience would agree.
Are you on Linda's ping list? She is ONE SUPER artist!!!
You have totally grossed me out.
No, I'm not........should I be?
You should. :-)
I am Brad's Gramma and I approve this ad.
If ya run out of squirrel, chipmunks will do in a pinch!
I thought tomorrow (7/3) was the last day of half staff and it went full on Sunday (7/4)....obviously I was wrong.
Being wrong is nothing new for me!!!!!!
But I do admit it!
I thought I'd heard the 4th, also. But, the thread WAS linked to the White House....(not that I checked).
Honey Child! If you've never had Squirrel and Dumplins or Fried Squirrel.......You just ain't been livin' the right kinda life.
(Please don't tell me you're gonna go "join PETA"!)
I am pinging JimRob. He is from Arkansas. I'll just bet that he can tell you about "Squirrel and Dumplins".
(You Dang Young'us! Don't know nuttin'!)
Yeah! But they're too danged small to be good for much.....
