  • (Vanity:) We Need to Call and THANK "No" Voters.

    I hope all will pardon the vanity post. Just a suggestion: In addition to calling the undecided, we also need to be calling those who've decided to vote no - particularly some of these Democrats like Davis and Tanner who are now saying "no" - and THANK them for doing what's right for our country. Not only these, but ANY Democrat who is voting "no." It's easy for the Republicans to cast a "no" vote. Not so easy for the Democrats as they are going against their entire party leadership and "their" President. These people will also be coming under...
  • Say ‘thank you, George Bush,' Cheney tells Biden

    When Vice-President Joe Biden says the Iraq war may turn out to be one of President Barack Obama's greatest achievements, Dick Cheney wants credit where he says it's due: the Bush administration. “If they're going to take credit for it, fair enough, for what they've done while they're there,” Mr. Cheney said Sunday. “But it ought to go with a healthy dose of 'thank you, George Bush' up front and a recognition that some of their early recommendations, with respect to prosecuting that war, were just dead wrong.” Obama opposed the war in 2003 and, as an Illinois senator, the...

    A prayer update on my good friend and mid-morning local talkradio show host Jim Vicevich. Right now he is in the hospital getting the help he needs for his medical condition. Right now he does not have the strength to do his radio talkshow. So out of respect for his need to rest and heal, and until he is back on the air, will be taking a break from posting the "Sound Off Connecticut Show" thread. Also Jim says thank-you for all the prayers, well wishes, and support. Also I extend my prayers for his family who is dealing with...

    Apologies for the vanity. I'm looking for FReepers in Dallas, TX to try to regain contact with someone in an Evangelical Church there.They helped me make it through one of the toughest times of my life and promised to email me later, but never did. I never got a chance to properly thank them and tell them my life was truly changed.The only clues I have are that they had in 2006 an assistant pastor whose voice sounded like Al Michaels and they were about 20 minutes away from downtown Dallas.Can someone jog my memory?

    We know absolutely no one in Bush family circles and have never met former President George W. Bush or his wife Laura. If you have been reading us for any length of time, you know that we used to make fun of “Dubya” nearly every day…parroting the same comedic bits we heard in our Democrat circles, where Bush is still, to this day, lampooned as a chimp, a bumbling idiot, and a poor, clumsy public speaker. Oh, how we RAILED against Bush in 2000…and how we RAILED against the surge in support Bush received post-9/11 when he went to Ground...

    Where would we be without veterans? Did you ever think who would control the United States of America if it were not for the sacrifices made by our veterans? Did you ever wonder how many gave their lives so we might have the freedoms we take for granted? Did you ever think about what country we would belong to without the veterans? Could it be Great Britain, Mexico, Spain, France, Germany, Japan or any nation that would conquer us? When we read about any Memorial Day or Veterans Day, we should be thankful for the veterans. When we read the...

    Dear Mr. President: As a 64-year-old, lifelong fiscal conservative and Republican since Nixon, may I humbly thank you? In the eight months or so since you took office, you have succeeded in reviving a party, the GOP, that many had left for dead. 1) You have named men to office so wildly irresponsible, so extreme in their positions, so vulgar in their means of expression, that they have made the Republican Party regain its of gleam of gentility and good graces. I am not talking only about the tough guy/ballet dancer Rahm Emanuel, who screamed like a jilted drunken sorority...

    Thank-you, Fox News. Thank you for reporting the news other networks ignore. Thanks for not condescending to the great unwashed by informing us how we should think on a given subject. Thank-you for not adopting the patronizing, elitist attitudes that have become de rigueur on most other networks. Thank-you for recognizing that Americans have the right to information from both sides of the aisle and are fully capable of making up their own minds on issues, given enough facts. Thanks, Fox, for actually questioning the incessant spin coming from Camp Obama. No one else is. If not for your reporting,...

    Dear Mr. President, This should prove a challenging week on the PR front for us at Goldman Sachs. There are a few situations surfacing for which appropriate clarification will provide you sufficient context in the event that the inevitable questions arise. We also have a couple of suggestions. Regarding this nastiness of the past week, please do not be too concerned about all this talk surrounding our super high-speed fully automated transaction processors. Also please understand that they are our future. Admittedly, we are enamored with the technological prowess we have acquired. Don’t believe those jealous rumors coming from begrudging...

    BAGHDAD -- Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki struck a conciliatory tone ahead of his trip to Washington, talking about his gratitude for U.S. sacrifices in Iraq, and offering to negotiate a settlement between Iraq's federal government and the country's Kurdish enclave as tensions heighten between the two. In an interview with The Wall Street Journal as he prepared for a visit to the U.S. on July 21, Mr. Maliki said he planned to thank America for its shared sacrifice with the Iraqi people in the tumultuous post-Saddam Hussein years since the U.S.-led invasion in 2003.

    Thank You, Military Recruiters, May 15, 2009, Dateline: Silver Spring, Md. On Friday, May 15, 2009, members of the Free Republic, DC Chapter went to the Armed Forces Recruiting Center in Silver Spring to thank the recruiters for their service. The AFRC is about a mile up Georgia Ave from the front gate of Walter Reed. We spent our time with three Navy recruiters, as the Army and the Marine recruiters were at Andrews Air force Base preparing for this weekend’s air show. We heard that recruiting goals are being met, that re-enlistments are high and that fewer are getting...

    several sources
    House Judiciary Committee chairman, democrat John Conyers Jr of Michigan, and HJC member, Maxine Waters, have each given their endorsements to the Revolutionary Communist Party movement/organization, "World Can't Wait--Drive Out the Bush Regime" (they'll probably be dropping the "Drive Out the Bush Regime" portion of their name soon). In fact, Conyers even gave a speech to the group. The RCP calls for an armed communist overthrow of the United States. Click on the WCW link just below and see: "Endorsers of the Call to Drive Out the Bush Regime Include". Conyers' endorsement appears right after Ward Churchill's. Al Sharpton's, Maxine...
