    my own sense of paranoia | 10/17/2004 | lawgirl
    I am going to be taking a vacation with a few friends to London and Bristol, England, before the election and I wanted to get some Freeper ideas on where to eat and what to see. I was intially very worried about travelling abroad before the election, but then I realized- that's what the terrorists want! So forget them- I am going to drop some tourist dollars on our faithful British friends! I have never been out of this country so I am a little bit freaked, so I thought I'd ask for some input from other well traveled and/or...

    All you Freepers going to the RNC- check in here! I am lucky enough to be going as a guest of a Freeper delegate from the honorable state of Arizona!

AND---I am only going to be there...

    PARIS - Fewer than 50 percent of French people think France has a moral debt to the United States 60 years after the Allied D-Day landings, according to an opinion poll published on Saturday. The poll of 1,000 people on May 25 and 26 showed 48 percent of respondents thought France, which was liberated by U.S. and other Allied forces during World War Two, had a moral debt to the United States. Fifty percent thought it did not. The poll was published by Le Parisien newspaper hours before U.S. President George W. Bush was due to arrive in France for...
  • An Illustrated Song: Russ Lee's "Live What I Believe" with George W. Bush (VANITY)

    Welcome to (as far as I know) Free Republic’s first “Illustrated Song”. Some songs just naturally bring certain images to your mind, and as I listened to this song, the following images came to the forefront of my mind and reminded me that you can see President Bush’s words and beliefs coming to life in his face. Hopefully you will agree with me that the photos illustrate the song well. This song was recorded by Christian artist Russ Lee, and this version came out right after President Bush’s inauguration. Russ Lee took W’s words and interspersed them into his own...
  • Let's celebrate! One year since the election- share your war stories here!

    Tomorrow it will be the one year anniversary of the "Eternal Election Day." What were you guys doing last year at this time? One year ago I was munching Tums and watching the final poll numbers, all the while praying furiously that George W. Bush would be elected. Can you guys believe it's been a year? I spent the 2 years of the Bush campaign in law school and I was unable to get away to meet him, but I would love to hear everyone's thoughts and stories about the campaign and all that followed. Did you get to meet ...
  • Look at the Wooly Worm I found! Long winter or short?

    Yesterday I was cleaning my house, and I went to pick up what I thought was a piece of cardboard box. It was a wooly worm!! (An inch-long caterpillar that looks and feels like a thick pipe cleaner and appears in the autumn.) After screaming, dropping him and probably scaring him half to death, I called my husband to come and pick him up (hehe). Anyway, we both noticed what huge brown stripe he had on his back. Growing up in Iowa, I remember there was an old Indian's tale about being able to predict what the winter was going ...

    Good evening all! I have the extreme privilege of bringing you tonight’s dose! W was on the road selling his economic stimulus package today in Glen Burnie, Maryland. I just LOVE the ones of W with the flag—I had to turn the fan WAY up while preparing this dose!! Anyone have a good quote of the day? I was so anxious to get these photos on here I didn't get a chance to see if I could find one! I knew there was a reason Fall was my favorite season--W looks extra good with those georgeous trees in those ...
  • Free Trade for Jordan

    me watching Fox and MSNBC | me
    Watching the news conference of W and King Abdullah in the Oval Office, President Bush gave King Abdullah a pen which he used to sign a free trade agreement with Jordan.My question is this- who else do we have free trade with besides Canada and Mexico? England?? Anyone else? My point is this--this seems like a REALLY BIG milkbone for Jordan, and if we are trading free trade for support by Jordan, I don't consider them our friends, but opportunists. If they are with us, they should be with us WITHOUT such a big reward.I would love to hear anyone ...
  • VANITY: what do you do with the old satellite dish?

    OK here is the dilemna. A friend of mine has recently updated to Direct TV and has no use for the 16 foot satellite dish outside her home. She asked me what she thought she should/could do with it, and I told her that I was not sure, but I knew a heck of a way to find out! So, Freepers---have any of you had this problem? What do you do with a giant 18-year-old, 16 foot diameter satellite dish once you're done with it?? Is there a company that will take it away? Will the garbagemen take it away? ...

  • Freeper Prayer Update: I PASSED THE BAR EXAM!!!!

    04/13/2001 9:31:27 AM PDT · by lawgirl · 456+ views
    Freepers!!!!! Guess what- God answers prayers! I just found out today that I passed the Kentucky Bar Exam!!! I had posted a Pray for Me thread in February about what was going on in my life- and the Bar exam was one of my biggest hurdles. Since my mother-in-law had been diagnosed with cancer and was undergoing treatments and surgery, I had little time to study. I think my passing was a direct result of your prayers!! I cannot tell you how moved I was by the outpouring of support and prayers here on Free Republic. You all were a ...

    OK kids. I was thinking yesterday re: Bubba's flight to Europe- I wonder what kind of music he'll listen to on the flight. Then the answer smacked me in the forehead: his own voice. Duh!!! ;-) so I thought maybe we FReepers should send Bubba a tape of all the songs that best describe his presidency. I'll go first!!! Let's hear some other suggestions from you all too!

    I have received so many wonderful emails about how people were praying for me during this trying time in my life. (what I am talking about) I cannot tell you how much your prayers have meant to me! They have lifted me up and made this terrible time a little better. The Bar Exam was hell, just as I expected it would be. However-------I could tell that your prayers were with me! I felt a peace come over me the day before and during the exam which I know is a direct answer to your prayers. Also, it seemed that ...

    Hi everyone- I know many will perhaps view this as a frivolous post, but I felt this is one of the few places I can ask for prayers. Long story short- I did not pass half of the bar exam last July (to become an attorney) and I am scheduled to take it again Wednesday. In early December we found out my mother in law had cancer. She underwent surgery and treatments in January and we thought we were making progress and that she would be OK. This past Thursday we learned that the cancer has spread and she does ...
