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.
I'm surprised that came from you. Truly. As a grandmother, why would I need to know how to build and maintain a website?! Why are you trying to be insulting?
Contributions are not investments. Your contributions give you no controlling interest in Free Republic, LLC.
Do you have any control and/or financial auditing power over other organizations to which you make donations?
Cussing and kicking stuff is tough on the furniture and usually results in stubbed toes
RC Cola was a soft drink that was very popular in the early 70's and much better than either Coke or Pepsi, imo.
I believe it stood for Royal Crown??
“Or the poster may be a trolling anti-freeper that drank the wrong persons Kool-Aid.”
Uh huh, or they may not be.
I’ve consumed my share of RC Cola (and I agree...I like it better than Coke or Pepsi). I was referring to the poster’s analogy that there is a 3rd option (besides Coke and Pepsi) that’s “officially favored”. I have no idea who the equivalent of that would be with respect to who is the “officially favored” option by FR.
He knew what you meant.
Exactly true. And there is nothing particularly noble, conservative, free or rebellious about that.
They were. And there’s more.
Point them out then.
“They were. And theres more.”
Or you can always call them that cuz it makes you feel better.
Honestly people, if there are or aren’t ‘anti-Free Republic’ websites shouldn’t matter.
This site is in the business of traffic and ideas.
Put it in the analogy of a restaurant. If you own a McDonald’s franchise and Burger King pops up nearby, do you mock and jeer people who go to Burger King or do you try to make your franchise so appealing that people choose you more often? Do you make your burgers better and make your customers feel welcome, or do you lock your doors and flip off Burger King?
The way it was is that Perry was portrayed as the anti Christ himself, then he was mocked as a rube.
No measure of his long record of conservatism was sufficient to call off the howling dogs.
I heard every BS line of hate on the Perry threads and I only saw one jackass zotted.
There was an entire posse with pinglists that just hounded poor Cincinatis Wife
I know, I "got it" right after I hit the post button.
I think I'll just go back to sleep now, lol!
Several have been “pointed out”. I think we’ll let the others expose themselves. And they will..
Believe him if you want. I don't. He has already shown he will change his views on abortion in the name of political expediency. The problem is, once you do that, it can be hard to get anyone to believe that you really mean your current position. Especially when people notice that you have flip-flopped on a lot of other issues as well.
I am not trying to be insulting. Being a grandfather I have to stay up to date to support my family. If I told the President of the company I work for that I needed 400k for servers he wouldn’t fire me, he would shoot me. (It is Texas after all)
Did you read the rest of the post?
I am insulted by people telling me about “equipment costs” when they don’t know anything about said equipment. Note also that servers are an off the shelf item so there is no waiting for them.
I don’t want a doctor telling me how to fix my car or a mechanic telling me to eat right because of my high blood pressure either.
I love ya DJ but explaining FR expenses should be left to Jim Rob.
Puh-leeze, CW had no problem using FR to also attack GOP candidates not named Perry. If you play that kind of hardball, you have to expect the same in return.
MyLife, I’m sorry but I liked Perry and the poster in question you are talking about did exactly what dirtboy said and more, to the point I started questioning if she was a Perry supporter or someone who just wanted to rile people up.
She even started trashing Newt and Cain for being supported by Conservative organizations that also supported Perry and of whom Perry supported. In other words, while claiming to support Perry, she was making cases against him and just causing fights with other members.
It was pretty sad actually.
