HELP KEEP THE LIGHTS ON: JOIN THE FREEPATHON AND SUPPORT OUR SITE
First Quarter '03 FReepathon Now Underway

.... ...

The Free Republic first quarter '03 FReepathon is now underway! .... Thread 3

Our goal for this fundraiser is the same as last quarter: $65,000. We have about $4,000 per month coming in from monthly donors so we will need to raise approx $53,000 to hit the target.

The funds raised through these fundraisers are used to pay our operating costs. Free Republic operates on an approximate $260,000 annual budget (breakdown here) and all funds are provided by donations from FReepers and Lurkers.

Thank you all very much for your continued support.

P.S. We are planning to make FreeRepublic.com email addresses available as a thank you to all who donate at least once per year. This new feature should be ready to go within a few days. We will post a notice and a link for donors to setup their FR email address as soon as it's ready.

Donate to FR and help us keep the lights on for the best political forum on the NET!

I'm not sure if the realtor had good news or not.

The contract ends tomorrow and she said she has a colleague with a client that is workingon financing and is interested.

I have to believe her because she is a God loving person. I extended the contract for 30 days to see if anything pans out. If it doesn't we are going to hold off re-listing the house until the weather gets better.

You must have been a very very serious user of those shirts.

I always save those kinds of things after the fact.

My family joined the Clatworthy (he ran against Biden) campaign group in the annual Old Dover Days parade last May and everyone from the campaign was shocked seeing my almost 4 year old wearing the 1996 Clatworthy campaign t-shirt.

I won't deny it it - I'm a junkie when it comes to collecting those kinds of things

I'm the one that is hopeful - it's been over 2 years since we made the decision to move. And over a year and a half that we've had this place on the market.

I never expected that I would still be in Delaware doing a FReepathon in 2003.

I have 4 favorite tees and that is pretty much all I wear. When one of those wear out, I find a new favorite tee. I do not collect anything. I sent the same tees to family members that do collect, so they will be preserved in the family.

LOL - I understand, I have my favorites as well.

But for various and sundry reasons I have relegated them to the stock pile that only comes out on special occasions.

Last time I looked - they we calling for snow on Friday here as well.

What bites is that if the snow front is coming from the west DC always gets hit harder than we do in central Delaware.

Flak Magazine's Review of Free Republic

FreeRepublic is, to use their words, "an online gathering place for independent, grass-roots conservatism on the Web. We're working to roll back decades of governmental largesse, to root out political fraud and corruption, and to champion causes which further conservatism in America... Free Republic is a loosely organized group of grassroots Americans who support our Constitution and look for honesty, integrity and honor from those in government."

snip

But some of the best and funniest posts come when the conservatives are united and want to assail their enemies as memorably as possible. Freepers, like any group of like-minded individuals, have a long list of their own personal enemies (the New York Times, Washington Post, CNN, Dan Rather, Paul Begala, James Carville, Maxine Waters and Bill Clinton are just a few of the favorites.)

McSweeney's even had a feature that showcased Freeper attacks on New York Times columnist Maureen Dowd (examples: "You are an exceptional liar. You betray the truth at every turn. You care not a whit about the facts of the matter. You blame entirely one side, while ignoring the crimes of the other. And you have lost much of the prestige that you formerly enjoyed," "I have had 8 years of a liberal agenda crammed down my throat. Enabled by pukes like you," "Many of us have better things to do than sit slack-jawed and glaze-eyed for hours while filling our heads with leftist tripe," etc.)

That's what it is here without the wind factored in.

I can tolerate cold, even though I don't like it.

I can't handle it when the wind is blowing.

If it is going to be cold it better be snowing.
