Everyone please send whatever you are able to, whether it is $10, $100 or $1,000+. The DUmmies, Morons, Kos Kiddies and that crew are laughing up their sleeves. Jim may have to make this site members only or allow ads. Better for us to just help with what we can. Maybe you can donate as a memorial for a lost loved one, a servicemember who never made it home or was disabled defending our country. Perhaps you'd like to give to keep free discussion alive and to show them that we're not knuckling under. I'm sure a well thought out or prayerful meditation will lead you to see the need and how you can help. If every registered FReeper and our lurkers would each just help out with a fin or a sawbuck, or better yet a Ben Franklin, we could put this to bed and get on with the conservative cause.
Thanks for your service and I feel the same way!
Also, they were (shudder) *FREEMASONS*.
Which is exactly what the enemy of our souls and what the Marxist liberals have done all they could to implement far and wide and certainly on sites like FR.
I do? That's news to me. Somebody must have slipped that "truth" right by me.
If you can get the equipment so much cheaper...
Hey...anyone got around $400 to spare can go to the Dell website themselves and buy an enterprise-class server with tons of capability. It's no mystery. It's not hard. And I should think $94,000 should cover two of them pretty darned easily. Ain't rocket science.
Oh, wait. Scratch that last. Forgot that FR is anti science. Ooops. My bad.
Now what was that about a case of projection? Oh yeah...I warned some poor soul with $361 living money to not spend a penny here, and gave sound, factual, independent reasons as to why. That drew your venom because you projected it as a threat to...what, exactly. Hmmmm...? If FR and its core nasties can't handle simple human decency, well maybe it has outlived its usefulness.
I’m starting to wonder where I can hear it from at all. Why are so many asking questions?
You’re seriously going to write that?
The Freeper whose tagline reads “FReepmail me to get ON or OFF the ZOT LIGHTNING ping list”...
The chutzpah of it.
I intend to campaign vigorously for whoever our nominee is, and tonight I ask each of you to join me in this important crusade. - Ronald Reagan 1988
Yes, I have called other people bots. In fact, I started with the socialist Romney supporters five years ago. Old habits, like hard core socialists, are hard to break.
“o we really need to search for a position on abortion in daily discussion, or try to stop it?
If you like to merely debate the issues, then find a debating forum that has no political mission or goal.”
I agree with this, however, I think most of us who are willing to vote for Romney agree with the conservative goals set out regularly on this forum. I know I do.
Those who have stated they are voting for Romney are NOT excited about it. We don’t think he’s a closet conservative or is planning to clean up his act. We have just decided that we think it is best for the U.S. to have him instead of Obama. That’s how we see it. We don’t think he’s all great or anything.
Our disagreement on FR lies with whether we should support Romney over and against Obama. Some want to; some want to write in Sarah or someone else; some want to leave it blank, just working downticket; maybe some will push for a Libertarian or American Independent or something similar.
I’d like to hear and discuss everyone’s ideas about what they want to do. I may nor may not agree with them; but I DON’T call their conservative beliefs into question.
As an object lesson I suggest we on FR start thinking NOW about 2016. We need ONE good electable conservative to rally behind. In 2008 and in 2012 the conservative vote was split.
Hey, I know wolfstar. She’s a friend from way back.
I am almost sure she has never strangled kittens.
Nahh, you missed the point.
See post #1289 for another reiteration of it.
Only one of those is a political activist group, and none of us would voluntarily give PBS a dime.
JR doesn't drive off donors, he has a political agenda that he promotes, and supports his site with like minded people who donate to his cause.
“He also said that he will not allow promotions of Mitt on this site.”
I am willing to follow that rule (it’s Jim’s site), but I am still not clear on what is a considered a “promotion.” Maybe that is still being worked out.
And again you mislead.
That figure is FR's quarterly budget with the other half of the funds for new equipment added. It is NOT just servers.
I figured as much.
So you got nothing. You couldn't intelligently answer my question so you just make up a bunch of nonsense. At the first sign of disagreement you throw out the childish romneybot slur. As it happens, you are precisely the kind of obnoxious member so many people are complaining about.
Hahahahaha...that's really colorful, Ansel. I enjoyed your imagination. Made me laugh.
So let's see how it stacks up to reality. As of this moment, I have three dogs and two cats. I rescued all five animals off the streets of greater Los Angeles. The oldest, a sweet pit bull, is at least 12 now. Then there's a Chihuahua mix of undetermined age, although he's probably about 11. The two cats, littermates, are 6. The third dog, a mutt, is about 7.
Back to FR. It was once a vibrant, fun, stimulating web forum. How sad that it's come to this.
Wow, you are one warped puppy.
The only venon in our little conversation has been from you, mainly because I asked you directly, why are you here if you felt the owner was a scam artist?
You still have not answered the question.
Instead, you focus on me. My point was made very clearly,the poster in question can spend his money freely, without any advice from you.
And your “advice” was not motivated by charity—but merely used as a springboard to launch a baseless attack on the owner.
You don’t like being unmasked, sweetie, but get used to it.
Your schtick doesn’t work here.
If you don’t like it here, stop stinking up the joint and take a hike.
No one is forcing you to be here.
Start your own website. It’s a free republic, after all.
Lol...so true. :)
Read her posts on this thread, they are among the most twisted that I have ever seen here.
Something weird is going on her mind.
I do not know
convincing evidence that 0.0000% of the primaries were rigged, corrupted in any way.
I’m all in favor of banning those that do nothing but waste bandwidth by posting really (duplicate) old stories on a daily basis and never....ever...pony up.
You know who you are.
True, and you currently don’t have the money, either.
And many are not happy with the current model of ‘Give us your money and STFU’.
So, like I’ve been saying...
Your ignorance is astounding. The zot lightning ping list has nothing to do with the ability or desire to zot. I will not enlighten you further, since you do not seem to be able to reason or think.
Try to grasp this: I am not a mod. I cannot zot, and I do not want to be able to zot. That is all.
Hi Altura. Thanks. But it's a badge of honor to be called twisted by this crowd. Oh the irony.
Romney was never pragmatic, he was always radical and fierce in promoting liberalism, he even wrote homosexuals telling them that Ted Kennedy was not adequately liberal for them.
Romney’s “pragmatism” only surfaced to get you to let him take over the conservative movement.
Please feel free to ask him. It is quite clear to me, but I don’t set the rules.
What other equipment is needed to host a website?
Who says Romney is a conservative?
Yep, that is the romneybot stuff that you pretended not to know about.
Jeez, you are a pure and dedicated (and hostile) Romney supporter on thread, after thread, after thread, don’t pretend that you are just indifferent to him, and are merely forced to grudgingly vote for the man.
You are very pro-Romney, very aggressive in pushing and promoting him, a romneybot.
You’re really going to write that?
Every ZOT of a old-school Freeper is driving a donor away.
Every ZOT of a conservative Freeper is driving a donor away.
Everytime other Freepers see ZOTs like that, it drives them away.
I don't remember what the owner listed. And he has listed what they're doing to upgrade FR before election night. You could ask him.
Maybe I’ll do that tomorrow, but it’s bedtime.
I’ve known her a long time. She’s a nice person.
She doesn’t eat dog either.
It wasn’t me, I haven’t voted yet. It was those other 5 or so million people who voted for him in the primaries. I have not received my sample ballot, but I don’t believe their is a column for leader of the Conservative movement, just President of the USA. The one thing I do like what he did in Mass. was really giving the Corrupt Midget the bums rush, and Whitey was still on the loose.
I like that you post the link to the posting history of the zottee, it gives us chance to see what happened and why.
You show your support and promotion of Romney in your every post on this thread.
I think that is the funniest thing I've seen in the decade I've been posting.
A whining little twerp is upset he didn't get me banned for calling him out. Now he says I make death threats.
He is a male version of Joy Behar with the silly sarcastic remarks you'd expect out of Rachel Maddow. So jonny go jonny go! fill out a police report, otherwise you slandered me.
For those who haven't taken a Law Course or think you are a legal genius from watching Judge Judy.
Slander is "falsely degrading a person in writing"
Libel is "falsely degrading a person vocally"
Thank god mojo took pics of every page on this thread so go jonny go's little hit job on me is recorded permanently :D
Quix, you have been here a long time, taken a lot of heat. If FReeper A made a death threat against FReeper B wouldn't FReeper A not only be banned but facing criminal charges???
And I also think Obama’s hate of the country is something I wouldn’t say mitt has. Still not voting for mitt. Anyone but Obama does not automatically mean mitt, it means “anyone” but obama. The person I vote for still falls into this category.
I just came off a course on introductory internet architecture and security. There are only servers, routers, switches, hubs (not really used anymore), and then the individual’s computer for the internet. (well, there is the fiber connecting it all)
And websites exist solely on servers.
So the only thing left, outside a server to upgrade is more fiber to connect the server to ‘teh interwebz’.
Well, unless he’s going to buy a new website format or is contracting out to a webdesigner to custom-make one.
The only person using the word "scam" in our conversation is you.
Free Republic is set up as an LLC. While I certainly am no lawyer, my general sense is that corporations have obligations to account for their finances. As DJ MacPuppyDog keeps saying, a budget has been made public. However a budget is not accounting. Not being a lawyer, I don't know what state and federal laws require as regards disclosure. So let me put it this way. For $376,000 a year in donations, it certainly is not too much to ask JR to ensure that his donor base is treated with courtesy and respect -- even if some happen to hold opinions that differ from his opinions and those of his gleeful zottgeist crowd. And when those new servers finally do make an appearance, a thread proudly showing off photos of them would be a nice touch.
JR hasn’t zotted any conservative freepers that I am aware of.
How do you confuse freerepublic with the Red Cross, PBS, and the Salvation Army?
I've never even created a webpage let alone created a website so we'll have to ask.
I don’t get your question.
Something weird is going on her mind.
YOU'RE imagining a person choking kittens in an erotic way ............ and you're accusing THEM of being twisted and weird???????????????????????????????????????????
Evidently you missed what I meant.
Let me put it another way.
I do not know of any convincing evidence that 0.0000% of the primaries were rigged, corrupted in any way.
I do not know of any convincing evidence that proves that
***NO*** PRIMARY WAS CORRUPTED IN ANY WAY ANYWHERE IN THE NATION.
