A Few of FR's Finest.....
......Every Day

FR is a Treasure Trove of talented, compassionate, patriotic, wonderful people who gather every day to discuss the latest news and issues;  salute
and support our military and our leaders;  tell a few jokes;  learn a new
word;  write poetry;  pray for those in need;  and congratulate those who
are deserving. Thank you, Jim Robinson, for giving us the vehicle in which
we can express ourselves.

Free Republic made its debut in September, 1996, and the forum was added in early 1997.  I
can remember lurking when there were only a few regulars who posted, and now there are over 60,000 who have registered for posting privileges. The forum is read daily by tens of thousands
of concerned citizens and patriots from all around the country and the world.

A Few of FR's Finest November 11, 2001

So many people have written me since my original Veteran's Day Tribute, asking how they, or a loved one, could be included in that tribute. Since I can no longer add the photos to the body of the thread, I've been including them in additional posts as I received enough to make another collage.

Still that doesn't seem to be enough. I think there's never been a better nor more appropriate time to keep the faces of our own Veterans and Active Military in front of FReepers--every day! That's why I wanted to do yet another Daily Thread .....ABOUT FReepers .....and FOR FReepers. But not only about our Military FReepers; for all FReepers! Wouldn't it be nice to get to know a few of the other FReepers as well? That's why, in addition to seeing FR's Finest Military Personnel every day, I thought it might be fun to feature a different FReeper (or FReepers) each day. If you would like to be pictured, or know someone who would, please FReepmail me and we'll turn the spotlight - on YOU - for the day!

And do let me know if you'd like your picture added to the groups of Veterans/Active Military below. I will keep this page updated, and continue to add them to the comment section of the original Veteran's Day thread as well.

Making Liberty her Mission at FRee Republic


By dansangel

Libertina is a very energetic FReeper who just (lucky for us) happened upon Free Republic. She signed up on 11-18-2000 and the rest, as they say, is history. Perusing her profile page, one finds several links to threads she has posted describing activism and subjects of passionate interest. Her latest rant is a thread she posted on Aug. 28 that can be found here:

"A Simple Word Like Violence"

Libertina has a wonderfully animated style of writing that she used in submitting information about herself to A Few Of FR’s Finest. There is no way that I could improve upon what she wrote. So, it is with great pride, I present "Libertina in Her Own Words."


Puget Sound Chapter Leader
For 10 years I lived in Asia. I was working for a foreign embassy (de facto) when their government back home fell in a bloodless coup - very intense. I was in Asia when China staged live military “games” and Clinton sent in US carriers to protect us - (he lied). I was still there while he sold sensitive missile technology, pilfered Republican’s FBI files and defiled the White House. Overseas news was CNN. (In other words, I heard nothing)

Returning home a few months before the election I was shocked to find that Republican was a dirty word, Boy Scouts were a hate group, and NAMBLA was operating in full public view. It was an outrage.
FR was found by Providence when I surfed message boards and someone mentioned “Free Republic.” By that evening I had found my cyber home. A week later I registered and posted my first reply. (Heady days! LOL) Surrounded by brilliant, constitution-reading, politically astute Freepers - it was education time.
A couple of weeks later I boldly posted a rally thread (LOL). Luckily, some people showed up: Big Ern, Vicki and other PS (Puget Sound) Chapter FReepers. (Puget Sound ***rocks!***) In December, I gathered with hundreds of patriots on the Court House steps in Seattle - and found myself on stage speaking.

Puget Sound Chapter FReeping the CReep in 2002
when Clinton came to Seattle. We DID make the news. hehehe

Now, more than a year later, the Puget Sound Chapter continues activities including a Shoot, potlucks with Billthedrill’s homebrew, FReep of the Creep in Seattle, Freep of the MMMs, and our National Gun Purchase Day on July 9th. NGPD is Big Ern’s brainchild to respond to the UN’s “Gun Destruction Day.” After contacting shops and clubs, the event went national as stores advertised specials during the week and 2nd Amendment lovers took advantage of discounts to buy more guns! (And, we could relay the statistics to the UN - hehehe.)
Of course, there was that challenging COSCO Freep (we were going to be on the Hannity & Colmes Show) where President Bush SAVED us…LOL. The night before our rally, GW secured the release of our service personnel from China. Most Americans stayed home to watch this play out on FOX NEWS, but I stubbornly trudged down to our site with a friend to protest. When the port guard discovered I was on the property, he unceremoniously threw my little Freeper behind right off the premises! Could have been ugly! Thanks GW!
The Puget Sound FR Chapter has been fortunate to have the supportive assistance of KVI radio host Kirby Wilbur announcing our community FReeps. Patriotic BUMP!
Upcoming: In September, my article “A Simple Word Like Violence” is being published in the WAC Gun News. It is an article about the increased linking of the word “violence” with “2nd Amendment” and how our kids are indoctrinated. (To preview, use the above link). And, I still run
I was honored to work a little on the FRiva Convention with Diotima, Bob J, and other awesome FReepers. IMHO, FR (& friends) is an impressive force against liberalism: gathering conservatives, launching activism projects, creating educational conferences…
Thanks Free Republic for providing such amazing refuge for patriots everywhere. ~~Libertina

And, thank-you Libertina, for being such an enthusiastic and active member of Free Republic! ~dansangel~

One of FR's Finest!

"Makes you just wanna sing! :)"

Yes, ma'am, yes it does...

"Marchin' on DeeCee!!"
(To be sung to Bruce Springsteen's "Racin' in the Streets")

I got a worn-out ol' computer with a 486...
Fax machine and patriotism galore.
Left's threatnin' our Rights with all their Guv'ment rot...
Clinton's a Chinese Communist Whore!
Me and my FReeper buddies gonna fight to the last...
Gonna kick Ol' Slick right outta town.
'Cuz Bill took Chinese money, helped our Nukes get snatched...
We'll Re-Impeach, then we'll CONVICT that clown!!

Tonight, we fight Slick's White House Blight...
We're gonna knock that Traitor out with our FReeps!!
Autumn's here and the time is right...
For marchin' on DeeCee!!

We decry corruption when we see'it...
We expose Tyranny by the State.
When Limbaugh shuts down, we hit JimRob's Forum...
We're all funded by Dick Mellon-Scaife.
Now some folks, they just give up caring...
And start givin' up their Liberties, piece by piece.
Some folks come home from work and wash up...
Then go hit the Web to FReep!!

Tonight, we fight Left's Treas'nous Blight...
We're gonna stomp those Lib'rals beneath our feet!
Autumn's here and the Time's Just Right...
We're gonna bring down DemElites!!


We met him and his "schtick" ten years ago...
Sixties' Lib'ral with "an eye for the babes."
With far-Left Media at his back....
Slick told the World he's here to stay!
But now there's Treason, Rape, and Chinese spies...
So many lies...Oh no, it just ain't Right!
This Country's drones, they need a spark...
Need more Mudboys singin', "It's worth the fight!"

Slick spunked on the floor of our great White House...
But folks said, "Wait, 'cuz Wall Street's soarin'!"
They stare off all numb, afraid to fight...
Trustin' LIES of folks who slaughter the Unborn.
For all you mind-numbed robots and Network "hotshots"...
Ignorin' crimes to beat the Band.
This time the Sheeple and me, we're gonna take back DeeCee...
And purge this filth from our Land!

Tonight, we fight the righteous fight...
Out of our way, RINOS, you best keep!
'Cuz Autumn's here and the mood's just Right...
For FReepin' on DeeCee!

(Keyboard/Percussion to fade)

Mudboy Slim

Just over two centuries ago, our forefathers risked Life, Liberty, and their personal fortunes to stand up against an over-bearing and tyrannical government. Because of their courage and determination, the original Thirteen Colonies became what we now know as the United States of America. Therefore, our honored forebears were all-too-aware of the propensity for central governing bureaucracies to grow out of control. The writers of our Constitution, in an attempt to protect the citizenry from this eventuality, chose to enumerate our individual liberties in the Bill of Rights. The First Amendment includes "the right to free speech," which not only protected the individual's right to speak out against the government, but also enabled the Fourth Branch of Government--the Free Press, if you will--to flourish. For over two hundred years, this watchdog Media has turned over many rocks, exposing the dark under-belly of American politics...UNTIL NOW!!

Presently occupying--at taxpayer expense, I might add--some high-dollar office space in Harlem, is a small petty man, heading a vast criminal conspiracy. Bill Clinton most certainly committed multiple felonies and obstructed justice in the Monica Lewinsky matter. A morally-weak, spineless Senate was not up to the task of removing him from office, making a mockery of our Legal System as the #1 Law Enforcement Officer in the land is master-minding a relentless attack on The Rule of Law; however, it is clear that Clinton is "Guilty" (beyond all reasonable doubts) of multiple felonies and SHALL BE BROUGHT TO JUSTICE!!

Since escaping Justice in the Impeachment Trial, Mr. Clinton has been credibly accused of Violent RAPE by one nice woman, Ms. Juanita Broaddrick. Either this is a major slander against the good name of an innocent man...or else Bill Clinton raped and violently bit the lip of this young woman. If it wasn't true, don't you think the Rapist-in-Chief would have come out a bit more strongly in his own defense?!

Now, we come to find out the President of the United States is most likely guilty of TREASON, for accepting illegal foreign campaign donations from the Communist Chinese in exchange for basically offering a free run of our Nuclear Weapons Labs and authorizing high technology transfers through key Democratic National Committee contributors, Hughes and Loral. Corruption never ran as deep and as wide as is the case with this Administration!!

Yes, when it comes to brazenly flouting the laws and mores of this Country, this Clinton Cadre of Corrupt Communist Co-Conspirators is charting a new course. Yet, the blatantly Left-Wing Media can't find the time or the manpower to investigate/report the Truth about Slick Willie's Felonious Behavior, the "dark side" of the man who could violently rape a supportor and suggest as he left, "Better put some ice on that, baby!" No, our "Free Press" cannot even find it in themselves to report on the TREASON committed by Bill Clinton, in which each and every man, woman, and child in America is now significantly more at risk than 8 years ago, simply because Bill Clinton needed some illegal contributions to retain his tenuous hold on the reins of Power.

We've seen how ridiculous the Yugoslavian State-controlled Media Propoganda Machine looked in the recent conflagration in Kosovo...who amongst the Media Poltroons can explain to me the difference between Clinton's Media and Slobo's. Fortunately, the Network drones are becoming irrelevant!

If you want to help in reclaiming our Country from the Evil that occupies the Oval Office, here's the gameplan...


Quite Sincerely,
Mudboy Slim

P.S. "On the 28th day of September in the Two-Thousandth and Second Year of our Lord, there was a Grand Convening of Patriots at the Mall in Washington, DC. This convention of FReedom-loving Americans from accross the Continent was unanimous in its call for JUSTICE to be exacted upon those who would commit TREASON against our great Country!! Historians will record this great day as the beginning of the end of William Jefferson Clinton's Treasonous Reign of Terror!!

So sayeth the word of...MUD

That's a picture of the Puget Sound.
Sorry, did you have any other windows open when your screen froze up. I've learned that when I'm playing music not to go to the mailbox or anywhere for that matter, my computer doesn't like that. Did you have to reboot?
