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 have an absolute POS in my chain of command that loves that phrase.
Everytime I see it or hear it, I want to hurl.
“We are pro-life, pro-family, pro-constitutionally limited government, pro-traditional American conservatism, pro-liberty!!”
+1 (and that post was 1776 so...+1 again!)
The first POTUS campaign I ever worked in, my first year to vote, was for Barry Goldwater. He changed over the years, I didn't.
I heard live the speech Ronald Reagan made the night before the '64 election...glued to every word.
I've been called everything but conservative on FR by people who don't have a hellava clue what they're talking about...they are just parrots!
I don't do the NYT. I do Drudge Report.
Look, if all you’re going to do is fuss and gripe and anti-freep, you might as well just leave. I don’t want your money if you’re not a satisfied member and not an advocate for our pro-life, pro-family, pro-limited government philosophy.
And the GOP-E just stood back and let him engage in scorched-earth politics, the bitter fruit of which we are seeing now.
You don’t even realize that your post is the ‘poster boy’ for the problems here.
Well said, sweetie. :)
And if you’re not one of us then I’m not asking for your money.
I’ve posted many times during our fundraisers that if you believe in our goals, if you enjoy reading and participating on FR and you think it’s worthwhile and would like to see it continue, please consider making a donation. And make it a monthly if you can. FR is supported solely by the contributions made by our readers and participants.
Evidently you do not feel FR is worthwhile and no longer enjoy participating here, so our fundraising it not directed to you. Please ignore the fundraising threads from this point forward.
We’re already halfway there, Jim. Please give us a little more time.
Trying to save this site is anti-freeping, now?
Geez. Get a grip.
I’m pointing out ways to increase donations and this is your response?
Fine, I’ll tell you what you want to hear, then.
You should force everyone to swear an oath of loyalty to you, oh gracious master. And if they refuse, you should ZOT all the offenders. Then you should impose a mandatory 20% tithe upon everyone left, on pain of the ZOT.
Happy now? All hail Lord Jim, we grovel in your presence. Please tell us what we must and must not think, for we... your loyal subjects, know that thinking for ourselves and providing unapproved opinions will not to be tolerated.
Fine, let us waste our time debating the merits of abortion and it’s various forms, perhaps homosexual marriage.
No problem. Obviously, believe what you want and vote however your conscience dictates. You are not one of the ones I was talking about.
Oops, before you get a zot, how much do you contribute monthly so that I can see about making up the difference. Thanks.
Well, that may be (from your viewpoint) but I’m not changing so if you want something different you might as well change the channel.
This channel will remain the pro-life, pro-family, pro-small government channel.
We are the resistance!!
Thank you very much.
Why don’t you simply state what your real issue/s are? Every time one is answered you find another.
I loved Brother Dave Gardner, he was the funniest guy ever; whatever happened to him?
I don't think anyone disagrees that was a bad move on Perry's part. But he acknowledged it was a poor choice of words. He apologized genuinely, and often. But no one wanted to accept it. Now look where we are.
Horse hockey. No loyalty oath.
If you enjoy reading and participating on FR, think it’s worthwhile and would like to help us to keep it going, please donate.
If not, then don’t. And if you find FR is longer your cup of tea, please leave. It’s as simple as that.
Completely agree. While lurking, CW was largely responsible for educating me about Rick Perry. I signed up to post, after three years of lurking, to make it one more against the jackals. The low point, IMO, was reached when one person accused Perry of being gay.
You do know you’re acting like a very badly behaved child. I think you’re picking a fight just to pick a fight.
I started out really not particularly liking Perry at all.
One day I shut up because I had to give him a lot of credit for handling a really bad situation with humor and grace. He also backed out with same grace that I could never attribute to Newt Gingrich.
I don’t know if it was the back surgery or what, but he could have done far better. He seemed unable to fight at the time.
Maybe someone was looking out for him, who can say?
You have the zot list, not me!
Do I look like your secretary?
back to the Dollar-a-Day Club!
Hang in there, LLS. You’re doing great.
I don’t get into the RC Proddy rock fights much any more because they increasingly grieved my spirit.
IF I feel a need to say something forceful on an issue related to our differences, I’ll say it strongly but with much more civility and graciousness. That’s a change I chose to make on my own prayerful considerations. That has been true for more than a year.
You might update your facts before posting, next time.
Yes, we have $6,000+ set aside for new equipment. That was half of what we estimated was needed. We may go for less or we may finance the difference and pay for it monthly out of our regular operating budget. Either way, well git er done. Thank you very much!!
Thanks for saying that. I was starting to fret overmuch about it and gearing up for a major prayer effort on that score.
Maybe Cain wasn’t cheating, maybe he wasn’t. The first woman was a setup, no question, but when the second one came along-—the one he supported for years without telling his wife? Even if he didn’t cheat, that was not kosher.
Either way, I lost all respect for him when he started making accusations against Perry, saying he was responsible for his (Cain’s)problems, jumping on the racial bandwagon about that stupid rock, and then saying the only candidate he couldn’t support was Perry. Cain owed the man an apology. A decent, standup guy would have done it. Cain didn’t.
On that blasphemous post alone, and I mean to GOD... I do SO hope you are banned.
Very well said.
And you don’t need to worry about saving me from myself. I have plenty of nannies in the government taking care of that department. One less thing for you to worry about.
“In my view Mitt’s supposed “conversion” on abortion (and other issues) is a little too late in life for me to believe.”
In my view Free Reign, it is never too late in life to have a change of heart, no matter who you are. Thank God some people do.
In any case, I hope that we as a country get the chance to reverse some of the damage done at the hands of our current president. No one could be worse for the pro life cause than Barack Obama.
Have a good day. . .
Absolutely not. You look like something else entirely. Good manners forbid me from saying exactly what.
You have the zot list, not me!
Do I look like your secretary?
Dude. Don't be a pr**k.
I don't share views with JR on some issues, but when I express myself about them, I'm not a d*** about it.
I think this comment, when you get a little dander back down, you might regret. JR isn't able to force, or even wants, a universal acceptance of his opinion. As he modestly rights, he's just some guy with a keyboard mouthing his opinions. So are we.
Show a little tact, shall we?
You were politely asked for their names.
Do I look like your secretary?
You noticed names. It was not unreasonable to ask you for them.
Thank you trisham. If it were not for Jim and onyx and DJ and you etc... I do not know where I would go or what I would do.
The tough get tougher, as the times we are in dictate in the fight against Nationalist Socialism ( liberal fascism), and the weak get weaker and leave.
Thats fractional distillation, politically speaking.
Pretend as you are reading this it is Germany circa 1926, with an American twist.Then you will know what the next few years hold under Romney OR Obama. It will be the same in either case.Thus the vituperatude against Romney.
At this point it doesn’t make much difference who wins the presidential election, and some in America want to do something about it besides this bogus vote on Nov. 6th, maybe do something at the GOP convention in Florida, there really is no GOP anymore, mainly because they do not know , or refuse to acknowledge, just WHAT the nation is facing.
