Member Texas A&M Class of 1981
Proud father of 19-year-old twins, who now are sophomores in college, yikes!
After 11 years in Austin, I returned to my native East Texas where I no longer had to worry about traffic, smog, over-inflated housing prices and politically-correct yahoos.
I am a former journalist (that's a reporter who actually has morals and ethics) and am now one of the biggest critics and enemies of my former profession.
See the Texas flag at the top?...I am a proud Texas Freeper, and if you are a proud Texas Freeper too, then display the flag!!!!!!
If you don't display the Texas flag, then either your not a real Texan or you just wish you were a Texan!
The following was copied with grateful thanks from Maryland Freeper RockinRight.
I love FR, but sometimes, I get annoyed at the "holier-than-thou" attitude around here. So, I have compiled a list of "FR Evils" which are things that at one time or another, I've discovered makes you evil and deserving of nothing good in life, according to these certain Freepers: According to some here, anyone who has done the following is evil and deserves nothing in life:
-paid a bill late
-lost a job
-had financial difficulties
-committed a minor criminal offense
-are employed in the real estate, mortgage, or financial services industry
-ever been unable to afford something

-unwilling to work for 94 cents and hour and live 20 people to a house to compete with illegals
