BTT. I had a Pong game too. The problem with the ones in the bars was that they didn't design the coin buckets large enough and the dang things jammed. Free Republic is like that.

Thanks for a reliable source of real news that the daily stories and editorial pages never offer.

I remember that, too. A lot of times that had to be done!

And I remember how everybody griped every single time Jim and John and Amy made improvements to the site!

I found FR on the old Drudge link, and started lurking in 1997. This is THE site for getting accurate news, inspired opinion, coordinated action, and just plain fun. My favorite memory is the night the SCOTUS delivered the decision in Bush v. Gore. The reporters were stammering on the steps to the Supreme Court trying to figure out the decision and spin it to Gore's advantage. After some moments of frustration watching TV, I logged onto FR and read the actual decision. Hubby and I were celebrating the win while the reporters continued to stammer and obfuscate. Happy 10th anniversary and many decades more!

Thank you so very much for Free Republic.

It was great to have you with us tonight at Walter Reed Medical Center. It was a great crowd. I am glad you could come to share the event with us.

Happy Birthday FR!!

Don Morgan became an anti-freeper, and then got sucked into a black hole. He's long gone long time now. CaL too.

Yes, we have. FR helped me through the x 41 years and the pain we endured. Don's "Ash Alerts" really cracked me up! The flashing lights were the best!

I guess FR has been very good for us all! I know it has been to me.

A lot of us would be under arrest for civil unrest if we didn't have this place!

Thank you, Jim for this great site. Free Republic is my home page and I see it EVERY time I turn on my computer (which is every day!). This site brings together the brightest, wittiest and funniest people I have ever come across, as well as the most compasionate and caring.

I have learned so much from so many people (worldwide) who call themselves "FReepers." I lurk more than I post but that's because I learn so much by reading what others contribute.

I didn't want to let this occasion pass without saying a proper "Thank You" to all who make it possible. My best wishes to all freedom-loving patriots everywhere. May God continue to bless this Free Republic!

Oh yes, the griping... They also griped about the server going down too much and they would go over to the Yahoo emergency site and whine while it was down. The good memories do vastly outweigh the bad ones though - LOL!

I think I still have the emergency site bookmarked somewhere. I haven't had to use it in so long, I don't know if I could find it.
