We're now over SEVENTY-SIX percent and going strong!! Less than 24% to go!!

Way to go, FReepers and lurkers!! "We're going to make it after all!!"

It won't be long now until we're over 80%, then over 90%, and then sprinting for the green!! Woo hoo!!

Despite the premature rumors of our early demise, FR is very much alive and still kicking liberal booty thanks to the continuing generosity of our loyal FReepers!! FReepers are absolutely the greatest!!

If you enjoy reading and participating on FR, if you think it's a worthwhile endeavor and would like to help us keep it going, please click the link above and donate via secure server. Make it a monthly if you can.

"Arkansas is a state located in the Southern region of the United States. Its name is an Algonquian name of the Quapaw Indians. The state's diverse geography ranges from the mountainous regions of the Ozarks and the Ouachita Mountains, which make up the U.S. Interior Highlands, to the eastern lowlands along the Mississippi River and the Arkansas Delta. Arkansas is the 29th most extensive and the 32nd most populous of the 50 United States. The capital and most populous city is Little Rock, located in the central portion of the state. The Territory of Arkansas was admitted to the union as the 25th state on June 15, 1836.
The name “Arkansas” derives from the same root as the name for the state of Kansas. The Kansa tribe of Native Americans are closely associated with the Sioux tribes of the Great Plains. The word “Arkansas” itself is a French pronunciation (“Arcansas”) of a Quapaw (a related “Kaw” tribe) word, akakaze, meaning “land of downriver people” or the Sioux word akakaze meaning “people of the south wind”.

"Florida is a state in the southeastern region of the United States, bordered to the west by the Gulf of Mexico, to the north by Alabama and Georgia and to the east by the Atlantic Ocean. Florida is the 22nd most extensive, the 4th most populous, and the 8th most densely populated of the 50 United States. The state capital is Tallahassee, its largest city is Jacksonville, and the Miami metropolitan area is the largest metropolitan area in the southeastern United States.
Much of Florida is situated on a peninsula between the Gulf of Mexico, the Atlantic Ocean, and the Straits of Florida. Its geography is marked by a coastline, by the omnipresence of water and the threat of hurricanes. Florida has the longest coastline in the contiguous United States, encompassing approximately 1,350 miles (2,170 km), and is the only state to border both the Gulf of Mexico and the Atlantic Ocean. Much of the state is at or near sea level and its terrain is characterized by sedimentary soils. The climate varies from subtropical in the north to tropical in the south. Its symbolic animals like the American alligator, Florida panther and the manatee, can be found in the Everglades, one of the most famous national parks in the world. "

He is a pretty active guy and what with all the campaigning, he should hit the beer and ice cream more tho. Life is short, yaknow.

Maybe he can have a beer shooter contest at one of the debates with O.. Does he drink? Does his wife’s horse drink whiskey? I bet National Enquirer is on it right now..
