    Matt Bracken on June 17, 2019 at 12:00 pm said: Oh, dear God… Prayers up… May God bless and sustain you through this ordealDymphna died suddenly last night, or more accurately, early this morning. I took her to the emergency room early in the evening; she had a high fever and a terrible cough. But it didn’t seem like anything that could ever be fatal. I will be pretty much out of action until at least after the funeral, so this blog is officially on hiatus for a while. I’ll be back, though, when I’m ready to handle things again....

    My 12th Freeper birthday just passed and I missed it (again). Anywho, I hadn't looked at my post count in a long time, and I'm surprised at my posting frequency. It works out to about 14.5 posts per day. Wow.
  • Jim Prefers Q to Freepers. I`m done with the new QFR. [opus]

    So, on FR you CANNOT kink to sites deemed liberal but CAN post tin foil hat conspiracy nonsense from 8ch. A site that hosts pedo and zoophilia and I'm the one whose account was deleted? Good luck with that. There are plenty of other rational sites around to peruse. This is certainly not one of them. 01/06/19
  • Dealing with Planned Parenthood Activists: Your Ideas Please

    Recently I've run into several Planned Parent activists on the street in the metropolitan area where I live. I usually ignore them, argue with them, or leave them with a snide comment, but today I tried a different approach. I engaged the representative, a young college student, in a discussion and found that he didn't really believe all the talking points he was spouting. Unlike most of his co-activists, this young man was persuadable, and hopefully I gave him something to think deeply about on the topic of abortion and the sanctity of human life. I know that most of...
  • Need Freeper help on North West Virginia

    05/24/2019 10:08:00 AM PDT · by Smedly Dewlap · 26 replies
    We are thinking about relocating to North West Virginia (Winchester area?) in the next year. All my research says it's a nice place but I would appreciate anyone with local knowledge to help. I know it's kind of "blue", but coming from Washington state anything will be better than what I deal with now. Feel free to freep mail or reply.

    Fellow freepers... I'm sure many of you reading this have never seen a post from me before. My daily schedule is such that I am only able to check the FR forum sporadically, and most of the time, I'm just lurking in the threads enjoying what little free time I have. The purpose of this post is simple... I need your prayers. I've been through a lot in my life, but 2019 has so far been a living nightmare. My wonderful wife and son are right by my side... And we have faced hardship after hardship all year long. I'm...

    I just wanted to thank everyone for your kind thoughts and prayers. I really appreciate reading them. It really was a shock for me. Like I said, Donna was not sick. She just went to bed early Monday night. Her door was mostly closed when I got up the next morning. I went over to my mother's house to get her out of bed and make breakfast. I then came home around 10am and she was still sleeping. I went in her room to wake her and found her gone. I am still in shock. I find myself forgetting that...

    Yesterday, out of the blue, I clicked on Howlin's Facebook page and learned that she'd passed away. I found her obituary and learned that she had departed on September 19, 2018 at the age of 72. She was a mainstay at Free Republic and her last post there was on April 22, 2007. I liked her a lot and I will miss her.

    It's been a VERY long time, but greetings, all. I was a FReeper dating from 1998; active here for YEARS. Life got in the way and I've been away for a long time, but back now. I've missed FR. Big time follower of Q and the truth movement and have remained very active....just not here. I wish to remedy that. I've made a lot of good friends here; friendships that last to this day. What's happening in our country and our world today were pipe dreams in the early days. We've always kicked ass here; I hope to kick some...

    I am trying to understand the standards and criteria for a post and thread being removed from FR. A few days ago, a thread regarding 2 Rottweilers killing a small child was removed. The post was from a legitimate news report. The content of the thread was not surprising, facts and reports being referenced on dog attacks, and emotional appeals along the lines of "I will own whatever dog I want." The point: This post was not different than many here at FR. Facts were being presented and a discussion was being had. Is there a stated criteria here at...

    The song's called "I Robbed a Liquor Store (but I Feel So Sad)". My band is called EMS and it consists of my daughter and I. It's edgy satirical indie pop. Thanks for comments!
