A Few of FR's Finest....Every Day....11-20-02

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.

"Can Someone With A Name Like That Be Serious?"

grumpster-dumpster
Freeper since June 15, 2001



I have to admit that it was a bit disconcerting the first time I checked out grumpster-dumpster's profile page. The main reason is that "the grumpster" (as he likes to refer to himself) writes in the third person. This gives one the impression that he is describing a close friend, rather than himself!
The information that the grumpster (a.k.a. Greg) sent for this profile was again written in the third person. After getting my mind-set straightened out (i.e. this was NOT some disinterested third party that had e-mailed me on the grumpster's behalf), I set about putting together this tribute. It was a real pleasure for me because I have met up with the grumpster on other threads and our exchanges have always been enlightening as well as pleasant.
Grumpster spent 32 years in the Navy (mostly active with a little reserve time thrown in). "I was lucky! I had a great occupation in the Navy (Intel) and got to see much of the world," the grumpster says. "I got to work at least once with every warfare community (surface, sub, air, and special-op) within the Navy! I just wish my final tour could have been aboard ship, but I'll admit that I'm really enjoying my retirement."
grumpster-dumpster lurked around Free Republic for about a year before he jumped in and started posting (under a different screen name...Is C'usn).
"When I first found Free Republic I was on active duty in the Navy towards the end of my career. I don't know exactly why I was so drawn into the FR scene, but I suspect it was because the people seemed to have such a patriotic-fervor."
The grumpster continues, "There was another reason of course; there was an aspect that cannot be underestimated. Since I was at the end of a 32 year career, I realized that I didn't know much about 'civilian life'."
"Believe it or not, Free Republic is a tremendous opportunity for those leaving military service to observe and interact with the population they soon will be joining. There's a wealth of knowledge and a real feel for what's going on in the country; essential services for those about to leave a cloistered society with specific rules and regulations to follow."



Politically, grumpster considers himself very conservative. He does list some disappointments with getting involved in the conservative movement. "Just before the 2000 election, I called the regional Republican chairman to volunteer. Never heard back from him or any other official," he says. "Since I live in one of the strongest Rat areas in the country, you would think that any help offered might be seized upon. Not here, evidently. This is one of those areas the Republicans have just written-off as being un-winnable. That's sad because there are more and more conservatives showing up each day."
Grumpster is very big into volunteerism. He is a member of the Knights of Columbus in the local community. He enjoys the fund-raising activities and the spirit of community, faith, service, patriotism and accomplishment afforded by working for others in need of a helping hand - not a handout!




"The best advice anyone can get (IMHO) is to choose your friends wisely. While the anonymity of Free Republic is very appealing to those of us who tend to the shy side, it's also a great place to meet and discuss issues or concerns with other like-minded people who soon become "friends" in a way unique to the times," the grumpster says. (Yes, he really does talk that way!)




As for the future:
Grumpster acknowledges that it's time to get a real-job! "Retirement's been great! I've had the time to do some of the volunteer work I always wanted to do. I even got to 'sleep-in' a few days!"



On a more serious note regarding the future:
The grumpster hopes and prays for a day when the unborn finally get "Justice under the Law."
"It has been a long journey breaking away from the PC regulations and indoctrination forced upon the military services," he says. "But, the future looks pretty bright to me. The atrocities committed on 9/11 have brought forth in this country a 'Patriotic Attitude' I don't think any of us (with the exception of the WWII generation) has ever experienced before. If that doesn't give you faith in God and Country, nothing will. And, I'm truly thankful that Free Republic and FReepers everywhere are such an essential part of that future! "


When you're feeling a bit down and need to lift your spirits, take time out and visit grumpster-dumpster's profile page. It is apparent that he is a very upbeat person from the irony that permeates every sentence.
One example of his humor: "Grumpster-Dumpster has no use for phonies... Just the other day he was telling President Bush and Mel Gibson how much he hates a 'name-dropper'." LOL! :-)


Please join me in giving another deserving FReeper - one who is witty, concerned and just plain fun to get to know - a warm welcome to FR's Finest...
Today that Finest is
grumpster-dumpster!

Caught for speeding
The cop got out of his car and the kid he had stopped for speeding rolled
down his window. "I've been waiting for you all day," the cop said.
The kid replied, "Well I got here as fast as I could." When the cop
finally stopped laughing, he sent the kid on his way without a ticket.
.................................................................
Stuck under a bridge

A truck driver was driving along on the freeway. A sign comes up that
reads "low bridge ahead." Before he knows it the bridge is right ahead of
him and he gets stuck under the bridge. Cars are backed up for miles.

Finally, a police car comes up. The cop gets out of his car and walks
around to the truck driver, puts his hands on his hips and says, "Got stuck,
huh?" The truck driver says, "No, I was delivering this bridge and ran out
of gas..................................................................
Don't mess with these ladies

A flight attendant was stationed at the departure gate to check tickets.
As a man approached, she extended her hand for the ticket, and he opened his
trench coat and flashed her.

Without missing a beat she said, "Sir, I need to see your ticket, not your
stub."
........................................................
Let's go for stupid

A lady was picking through the frozen turkeys at the grocery store, but
couldn't find one big enough for her family. She asked a stock boy, "Do
these turkeys get any bigger?"

The stock boy replied, "No ma'am, they're dead."

.................................................................
Too Late

The man was in no shape to drive, so he wisely left his car parked and
walked home. As he was walking unsteadily along, he was stopped by a
policeman. "What are you doing out here at 2 A.M.?" asked the officer.

"I'm going to a lecture." the man said.

"And who is going to give a lecture at this hour?" the cop asked.

"My wife," said the man"

"Authentic" Mexican food has its place, but I find it a little bland. I've had some very excellent dishes in Mexico and in Texas border towns, but I prefer the kickier taste of TexMex. I'm just a kicky kind of gal.

Grumpy, the comments on your profile page launched a Mexican food fight. I know you'll try to convince us it's nacho fault, but think before you write things down, huh?!??

Great thread today dansy. Of course I've had to be in and out a lot. this evening I had to drive Jack to his church where he directed his choir in their Thanksgiving program. Then they had a pot luck dinner. We both ate sparingly. They are wonderful people in his four churches. What you would call "salt of the earth."

I hope he's doing well. It's going to be scary for some time I expect. He will go into heart rehab in a week or two. In the meantime I'm resurrecting my cooking skills. We've eaten out almost entirely for several years now. Now I'll have to cook food with no salt and no fat or sugar. Talk about a challenge for someone who hates to cook....

Yes, he like most veggies. His biggest problem though is that he LOVES meat......RED meat. A veggie burger just doesn't cut it with him. I'm really going to have to be creative. It would help if he like rice, but he hates it. He hate yogurt. Actually he hates everything that is good for him.

De nada, mi amigo...

"And Clinton has been extremely sloppy in leaving documented proof of his guilt to be readily discovered by hungry investigators."

Yep...and just think of all Dem RATS he stepped on in his trek up the ladder of success. When Clinton falls, there will be a multitude of witnesses providing State's evidence as to his plethora of crimes..."The Tsunami of Justice Shall Drowned the Wicked!!"

"Just ask Monica how sloppy is bentmember."

LOL...Lewinsky was a RAT Defense Mechanism, whom Slick Willie--and his willing accomplices in the Vast, LeftWing Medyuh Whore'd--unleashed when questions about Slick's Chi-Com Treason were getting too hot to handle!! HummerGate was all about redirecting attention away from Clinton's more egregious crimes.

Your point is excellently-made, per usual.

My point--"Clinton's not a frickin' KING!! He's no different than you or I!!"--was intended to be describing the applicability of laws to DerSchleekMeister as being no different than the Laws being applied to you or me.

The Arbitrary Application of Justice is a major pet peeve of mine...MUD

Got some studio time next week and the following week. I'm gonna put some stuff down on a digital medium so you can manipulate it. As long as everybody is tuned to A440 we're in business.

How do you want it? Wave file, mini disc, DAT . Just let me know.

Might think about doin' this live at some point. At a FREEP, CPAC, or something. I ain't that far away. Could be fun. Maybe in DC, let our guys in Congress know we're out there and behind them. Hell, I'd do it at a barbeque with hot dogs, beer, and tequila. Just some thoughts...

I knew what you meant - but it was time for my daily rant. Thanks for setting it up and allowing me to take your words out of context.

Be well, be armed. ;-)

Glad to hear your hubby is doing better. I was thinking of you both today & decided to track you down online. The no meat products are not too bad these days. You can find some pretty tasty ones. I eat the Morning Star brand sausage. I was a vegetarian for 10 years so if you need any advice....just ask. I used to love eating a grilled portobello mushroom as a burger replacement. Just marinate in balsamic & olive oil...then grill a few monutes on each side. You can use them in stews & soups also...they have the texture of meat.

His heart attack was not diet related.

"I'm gonna put some stuff down on a digital medium so you can manipulate it. As long as everybody is tuned to A440 we're in business."

Excellent...I'm gettin' really psyched up. And now the dudes I play with are feelin' the fire under their britches now that they've got some "competition" and they're all hot to trot to git some stuff done, too...LOL!!

"How do you want it? Wave file, mini disc, DAT . Just let me know."

Let me get back to you on that...I'm looking into some digital recorders now, as well as some music-manipulation software, so I'll let you know. I had a nice Korg D8 that I'd bought but the RATS stole it from my buddies house this summer, but we'd gotten pretty used to the technology and I'll probably buy something similar of e-bay or whatever. I'm open fer suggestions...

"Might think about doin' this live at some point. At a FREEP, CPAC, or something. I ain't that far away. Could be fun. Maybe in DC, let our guys in Congress know we're out there and behind them. Hell, I'd do it at a barbeque with hot dogs, beer, and tequila. Just some thoughts..."

Any or all of the above would be great fer me...you'll come to find out I ain't shy 'bout beltin' it out...LOL!!
