    Check out Chris Matthews who now decides he is ashamed as an American on how we are dealing with our ally Egypt. Guess Chris is starting to see what we all see. I love his line about "We can't even do transactions right."

    Free Republic is a pro-life, pro-family, pro-liberty constitutional conservative activist web site. Those who cannot live with that should simply stay away!! (saves wear and tear on my zot button - bitterly clinging redneck, Jim) Romney is an unrepentant abortionist/statist lying political whore! Just to be absolutely clear, there will never ever be a RINO Romney campaign on FR!! If he somehow becomes the nominee, FR will be running a full-time campaign to DEFEAT him!! If you wish to support him then I suggest you sign off FR and onto Wankers for Mitt!! Those statments make me worry that FreeRepublic...
  • Maybe Conservative Candidates Are Playing The "You Go First" Game In The 2012 Election?

    All of the 12 or so potential candidates seem to give reporters common answers like,I Haven't Decided,or I'm Just Gonna Wait Till January To See Who Else Runs{well not in those exact words}.Sarah Palin gave us that impression when asked.She is going to wait to see who declares his candidacy this winter.It's just like a child's game,"OK,Who Wants To Go First?"or,"I Dare You"(more like,dare you to run)Can You Imagine all 12 Candidates Playing"Spin The Bottle"? To see which 7 Candidates will run in 2012?(well we can assume all of them want the bottle to point to Sexy Sarah!)

    11/02/2010 9:28:39 PM PDT · by JohnThune2012 · 7 replies
    Ed Schultz has devoted his "Ed Show" bashing every Conservative candidate who was a threat to the Obama Administration. 100% of the time,he just makes a total bigot of himself in front of his 42,000 viewers. Now that the USA landscape has turned RED!,what's he gonna do?There's no one left to poke fun of.The election is over,he lost. So anyone out there want to make some suggestions for Mr.Schultz's next job? Maybe CNN Janitor?

    OK, someone has to say it. That donate monthly guy pointing you downward to donate is cheesy. Who designed it? The people who created pet rocks? I want to see the bird that says "Well, where's your donation?" or the bulldog that says "Drop and give me $20!" Or have a picture of the Founders asking you to donate.

    The increase of vulgarity and profanity on this board is troublesome to me. It was not always so. I can remember the “olden days”. There was no profanity. None. And there was no chat. None. The first Freepers held one another to a high standard of discourse. I wonder why and how the profanity has become so common? The rule in the reply box includes “no profanity”. Do we have a problem of definition as to what constitutes profanity? Does replacing one of the letters in the “F” word with %## or ! mean that we have not used profanity...

    So, up until this week, when I'd go into the "New Posts To You" menu, there is a list of my posts, and responses to my posts. However, there used to be a "Mark All as Read" option - that is now missing. Where'd it go? Is it a 'feature' that it's gone?
