Howdy everyone!! It's time for our 2nd quarter FReepathon!!

As you all know, we're planning on beefing up our system before the elections and we're anticipating it will cost approximately $12,000 to purchase the new equipment, memory and disk that John's recommending. We raised half of that amount in addition to our operating expenses last quarter and are hoping to raise the other half this quarter. Hope to have it all installed and working before the election cycle heats up.

No matter who wins the nomination or the election, we're going to need FR more than ever to hold their feet to the fire. We're hoping for the tea party rebellion of 2010 to continue in November. It's unlikely that we're going to have a conservative in the Presidency, but if we can continue taking state governments, build on our majority in the House and retake the Senate we may be able to make some headway. We must repeal ObamaCare and roll back the unconstitutional Marxist central government!! We must return the power to the states and the people!!

We are the resistance!!

Long live the tea party rebellion!!

Thank you all very much!!

I CAN SEE NOVEMBER FROM MY HOUSE!!

Greetings from Southwest Oklahoma.

I want to take just a few moments to encourage everyone to help come and bump these Freepathon threads so that those who are able to make a donation will know that there is a Freepathon going on.

Time and time again you have heard me talk about the importance of places like Free Republic which provide conservatives with a source of news and information on current events. In fact, from time to time FR posters have broken stories which have never received any coverage or very little coverage from the MSM.

Any donation no matter how large or small it may be will help keep FR going at a time when we need it now more than ever. As stated in my Edward's Journal blog there is a lot at stake in this year's election. For one thing, America's very existence.

Your donation to FR will not only allow friendships being like minded conservatives on this site to continue, but also it will also continue to provide conservatives like myself a place where we can continue to address issues of public importance without having to deal with insults and B.S. from the secular/progressives and Obamanoids. This is something that Jim Robinson has always wanted to do and today we have such a forum for this opportunity.

So, if you would like to help us out in making sure that this continues then please make a donation to FR and/or help us out by bumping this Freepathon. Let's keep the lights on here FR so that we can continue this battle to put the Obama Regime and their minions out of business in November.

Thanks in advance and God Bless.

Edward from Oklahoma, a.k.a. E.G.C.

Don't know what's going on with Imgur .. if we save photos to our computer and then upload to them, why would this be happening?

I'm having a problem posting a TSA photo and imgur keeps posting this:

Image hosting on the web is a costly proposition for providers. Even if you “join” a site for “FREE”, or pay - eventually they find ways to kull your images, regardless.

Personnaly, I play “MUSICAL IMAGE HOSTING-IMAGE-SITES” .

Oh, my! That looks a lot like Redondo Beach, California, where my late brother used to live about a half-block up from the surf.

But it’s Ireland, right?

It does look a bit like Ireland doesn’t it!
It’s the SS Great Britain, sat in the dry dock where it was built by Brunel in 1843.
IIRC the first ship to do the trans-Atlantic run on coal only, and arrive with fuel left in the hold, as well as the Australian route. In service for 43 years. The first large ship to be driven by a screw propeller.
It returned home in 1970, packed out with old mattresses.
The hull is like a sieve, and so the lower half of the hull is in a climate controlled cocoon.
Located in Bristol, (west coast.)

You two have the best time! We’ll keep track of the NMD. I’m still waiting for the democrat to show up. I’ve left him a voice an appropriate voice mail. “Guilt trip, laced with a lecture about responsibility.” He will cry and lie, but I’m ready for that, too.

Been there, handled that several times.

I love what y’all are doing with Night Hawks. I remember when I first posted the picture late one night on one of our threads. I have a pretty good reproduction of the painting hanging on a wall upstairs. It’s always been one of my favorite’s.

In those days, (the 40’s) Night Hawks was also a term for Night Owls, (people who stayed out late).

LOL. This guy has to be treated like a child, because he behaves like a child; he's a self-centered democrat with his hand always out and he always has excuses for everything. Nothing is ever his fault, but anything and everything that goes good is always due to his singular credit.
