  • FR is run by cliquish Mods and Freepers that hurl insults and falsehoods who FB you if you don't agree.

    05/28/2020 3:36:32 PM PDT · by fightin kentuckian · 259 replies
    The rules say "be considerate" most of the Freepers are anything but, constantly hurling innuendo, names, and insults. But it's my fault or something like that so my threads get pulled without any explanation. And then the mods call me "thick". That's considerate? I'm a rock solid conservative, retired, 24 year Army Vet, and still work for the Army. I'm a lifetime member of the VFW and NRA. I'm a 20 year contributor to FR and the mods wont even answer a question, but instead call me names and insult me.
  • Farmer Dean has passed away

    05/20/2020 9:31:45 PM PDT · by dp0622 · 159 replies
    It is with a very, very heavy heart that I inform everyone that Farmer Dean has passed. He fought cancer and then septic infections and pneumonia valiantly for 3 years before succumbing. He loved his farm and his wife Becky and his horses and his incredible gun collection very much. I had the honor of talking to him many, many times and several days before his death. Please take a moment to remember him. He deserves it.

  • The Spirit of Free Republic Returns to Canada (Free Dominion)

    Nineteen years ago, a small group of Canadian FReepers set out on a journey to provide Canada with the same sort of political outlet that our American friends have with Free Republic. We started a Canada Chapter on this site, which we quickly outgrew. Then, we moved to our own site, and called it Free Dominion. Out of gratitude to Jim Robinson, and our friends on FR, we provided a backup forum for FReepers for when FR experienced technical problems. And, many Free Republic members registered, and regularly logged in to say hi! Several FR stalwarts, like coteblanche, backhoe and...
  • Why Covid-19 May Ensure President Trump's Re-election (Freeper Editorial)

    Original content | 5/12/2020 | By Laz A. Mataz
    The old chestnut, that American presidential elections are won on the fullness of the people's wallets, has been proven over the centuries to be accurate. The economy often influences whether an incumbent president, seeking re-election, will prevail and gain a subsequent term. The global Covid-19 response is leading many to think that the world is facing a deep depression. The economy, being hobbled in a serious way, will be down quite a bit. That, muse pundits across the political spectrum, is likely to cause President Trump to fail in his bid to be re-elected. While in normal times, this may...

  • Report From the Front - North Carolina Open for Business

    My Withered Brain | 9 May 2020 | Me
    Today was the first day of our Phase 1 retail store openings. Malls and stores opened across the state to large crowds and pent-up demand. Roads were buzzing with traffic, but here in the mountains -- which depends heavily on tourism -- we saw a lot of hesitancy to shop at newly opened businesses. North Carolina actually was rather lax in enforcement in many areas of the state. Store owners I spoke with told me they either were able to skirt restrictions by creative thinking, or simply opened intermittently throughout the lockdown anyway. The creative thinking crowd many times could...

    It is with a very heavy heart that I am announcing that the TCMS will be no more. humblegunner & I had a serious discussion about this several months ago and we both agreed it was time for it to end. The past several years I have dreaded planning this event, even though there isn't a lot to the planning as it has become a well oiled machine. It just doesn't seem the same anymore. We have a great 14 year run! I will definitely miss seeing all of you at this event. Know that I adore all of you....

    Protest prioritizes emotion over effectiveness unless *highly* disciplined and targeted. Otherwise, it can play into opponent narrative. I attended Operation Gridlock Springfield. I am writing this because it went all wrong! I am hoping others will heed this warning so the upcoming Rallies will be Fun, encouraging and successful. I learned right here on FREE REPUBLIC, what was acceptable behavior when Conservatives attend a Protest! THANK YOU FREE REPUBLIC! I beg you please Publish them again, so Newbies can HAVE A CLUE! I just FLED OPERATION GRIDLOCK in Springfield Illinois, because I did not want to be a part of...

    Here's a list of coronavirus stories that were posted here on Free Republic between 29 January and 5 February, interlarded with a few stores of timely interest that may jog your memory as to what was going on at the time. I think I got pretty much every coronavirus story during that time, except for ones from very sketchy sources. For context, President Trump banned travel from China on 31 January. The stories are posted in chronological order, earliest story first, latest story last.China Virus: 170 Dead, 7,811 Cases, 12,167 Suspected LIVE co erase from Agenda Free TVDe Blasio’s ‘sanctuary...
  • Freeper Ham Net

    I came across a post by abigkahuna N6TDG about having a Free Republic Ham Net for shut ins for the China Virus. I think it's a great idea. Big Kahuna mentioned 80 or 40 meters. I don't have an 80 meter antenna due to space restrictions so that won't work for me. We should keep it in the general frequencies of 40 meters so that more operators would be able to participate and Big suggested an evening net. I'm KC3OLY and I'm sure there are a lot of other Freepers out there with their amateur radio licenses. Come on everyone,...
  • Can I get some proof readers?

    I don't normally discuss politics with most of you because it just upsets half the people I know. Many of you are going to be very upset with me for this. That is fine because it more important that you hear the truth then like me. What is going on in DC right now is incredibly dangerous. The level of out and out lying by US House Democrats about their objections to the Virus Relief bill is incredible. There IS no "$500 billion slush" fund, no "bailing out the rich at the expense of the workers" Those are marketing slogans...
