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 would encourage everyone to support FR by either making a pledge or bumping this thread so those who can donate will know that this is happening.
FR is my only source right now as My side of town is without cable TV this morning. Our cable went out yesterday afternoon.
I called the cable company to report the problem and they sent out the techs.
Apparently, a fuse blew out and they went several miles to try and get replacement but it didn't fit. They had a couple of spares in their trucks but it didn't work either.
So, I can't get the news from the TV this morning which means FR is the only place I have right now.
You've heard me address what is at stake for us conservatives. This election is going to determine where our country is headed.
Will our nation continued to be committed to the war on terror or will our nation end up having a goverment run by bureaurats whose only desire is to missuse and abuse their powers to settle political grudges against conservatives.
So, will you help us out? Donate or bump this thread. Thanks.
Well, I understand TT has one tooth (or is it 1/2 of a tooth?) so far. Is this correct? I will contribute $100 in honor of our miracle boy. OK?
I declare a fair funkle!
Not so fast!
Good morning, William.
Good morning, and bump!
(psssssssst: a minimum of 5 minutes has to pass between of each of your fair funkle countdown posts.) ;)
A brown pony with a golden mane.
Well, bummer. ;)
(I evidently can't count or add when I'm preoccupied. LOL ... I blame a faulty computer clock! That's it! Yesterday's denial of service attack messed up FR's timestamp! ... Can't we average those two posts with the others?)
Are you suggesting that the funkle rules are a living document that grow as attitudes change? Harumph!
I am the benchmark for totally wacko. Look it up!
Fair Funkle Fawnn has funkles down to a science -- she's very hard to beat.
(Besides, she's sneaky.)
Good morning, Fawnn!
I'm suggesting that I followed the spirit of the law. (At least closer than you did! LOL) ... After all, it all depends on the meaning of how much fair is fair. ;)
It looks like it's about time for me to hand things over to the dayshift. ;)
So I guess You are still wanting those chips?
I need an address...
