________

Says Andy Nevis at Young Insider (http://www. younginsider.blogspot.com):
"The blog that I probably read the most is Free Republic (www.freerepublic.com).

It is actually more of a message board, but it provides a place for conservative contributors from all over the world to come together and discuss issues and share information."

What is this “Free Republic” of which you speak?

How does one login so one may post inane comments without first bothering to read the thread?

Frequent mentions by Rush have also helped greatly.
It’s where I heard FR mentioned first.

aren’t the little black letters in the posts on my screen made up of carbon?

if FreeRepublic endures, aren’t we going to use up all the carbon and have a carbon shortage needing Federal intervention?

Maybe we can sell some carbon credits to Al Gore. LOL! Just imagine how happy he would be knowing that he was funding FR!

I also learned about FR from Rush, right before the 2000 elections, when he recommended it. Once again, Rush was right!

Bill OReilly says we hate gace.

I have no idea who "gace" is, but BOR says a lot of stuff. I have found that ignoring his bloviations altogether has not impoverished my life. In fact, I feel like I get a little smarter every day by simply not watching his "I'm so much smarter than you are, so let me tell you what to think" segment -- I think he calls it his "talking points."

FR is not a blog, but I still consider it part of the "blogosphere." Blog posts show up here. From here, they show up on other blogs. It's part of the dialogue, part of the flow.

Well, it took me long enough to find this thread :)

Seriously, thanks. FR is really the one place that I know I can get reliable information from a conservative standpoint.
