looking for a good movie or documentary on the Hurtgen Forest battle
He was something.
A psych profile on him would be very revealing.I do wonder where he went after that.
I do know that some of that ilk went to an anarchist web board.
(I think it’s been shut down since then.)
Others went to Clown Posse.
And still others went to CU and even DU.
We’re still around...just haven’t been doing much freeping lately. We now have 3 grandbabies though! :D
CG has GOT to be spoiling them and such.
(It’s always a plan! It HAS to be in the plan!)
Congrats. Got one grandaughter and a grandson on the way.
Nice to see ya.
I do! He was a funny ole coot. I remember how mad I would get reading Murray Mom posts. I still think it was carville taunting us.
I can't find it now, but somebody outed another FReeper as MurryMom a few months back. Apparently, he/she/it is still around.
Where’d all these bolded italians come from?!
And now they’re blinking!
Great, they’ve started scrolling!
[Somebody posts “Scroll, scroll, scroll your text, scroll across the screen..”]
We both are..they are wonderful!
Get them squirtguns when they get big enough.
That’ll drive their parents crazy.
(I’m still a fountain of bad ideas.)
My parents got my nephews and nieces toys that make lots of noise.
My brother went, “Great mom.. just...great.”
We should be getting #4 next year after tax season. CG’s son is a CPA, had has to time things around that.
I can see I missed a lot by not finding FR until 2004.
Yes, that is quite true.
I found FR in 99, but didn’t sign up for awhile.
I lurked and read.
Then in October 2000 I decided to dive in, got depth charged, had a few torpedo runs done on me.
It was great.
But I will say that having to hand html your posts was a real pain.
I still don’t remember how I found this place. But it was at the right time, coming a month after our last victory.
Don't take it personally. You just inadvertently stumbled onto a memorable time in FR history.
And then it took off from there. Threads like this get started every once in a while.
Look at it this way: your posting is currently the sixth most popular article, and will probably keep going up.
You were sucked in by the immense gravitational tide vortices and were helplessly dragged to the foci of force.
There to orbit endlessly.
Oh wait.. that’s my laundry spinning helplessly.
We abducted you attached to your keyboard, a vicious FReepnapping into the shadowy cyberlands.
(Sounds more likely.)
As I told the last person to accidentally post a nostalgia thread:
“Just roll with it.”
A bunch of FR related humor sprang up due to the posters article.
They did eventually join back in with the rampant galloping goofery.
I had a nutcase liberal friend at work who I kept telling to click onto FreeRepublic on his WebTV.
He came in one morning and said, "I finally went to that FreeRepublic.com place".
"Yeah.....I talked to someone in a cheerleader's suit named 'Deb'".
And I thought, "Jeeze....when you first strap on a gun, you don't go walking into town looking for the Derango Kid!"
