She yelled, “Oh my gosh, it's Lloyd Marcus! May I have a picture with you?” I leaned over, gave the woman a hug and her daughter snapped a picture. Donald, our product manager said the woman's daughter told him that her mother is terminally ill. Her mom said all she wanted to do was meet Lloyd Marcus before she died. Folks, I can not begin to tell you...

    In three days we have only raised three percent of what is needed to keep FR on the air and doing what we do best. In a big way we helped to out and defeat both Gore and Kerry. This is not a fluke. More than ever, FreeRepublic needs our support. Finacially. Yep. FR needs your donations to stay afloat as we approach the most important presidential election in the history of the planet. Without FR's voice and it's members that continue to report the truth on a daily basis...We will surely be defeated by the left and their socialist...

    For the past two years, dozens of states have debated allowing college students to carry concealed weapons on campus. The issue is heating up in the Peach State where Georgia Tech students say an uptick of campus violence, has made them uneasy. Some want the right to carry concealed weapons on campus. “Concealed weapons holders are significantly less likely to be arrested or convicted of crimes than the remainder of the population," Robert Eagar of Students for Concealed Carry said. "However, the second they step on to the campus the argument is made they become irresponsible -- and can no...

            LIFEBOAT One of the great World War II films was LIFEBOAT, about the ordeal faced by survivors of a passenger ship that was sunk by a Nazi U-Boat in the middle of the Atlantic.

Each person has their own ideas about how to navigate the little boat: they argue about who should be in charge; and they find little things to fight over even when they run out of things to fight over. Eventually...
