I cannot believe I missed my own anniversary.
I joined FR 22 years ago, during the height of the Clinton Impeachment. So many great memories. Met Henry Hyde with some local Illinois Freepers, protested Clinton when he was here in Chicago (He turned around and looked at us when I yelled "How's Monica's throat?") and so much more.
Hoping some fellow Class of '98'ers chime in and let me know they're still here.
How could I forget Redwing9 and some of the ladies who were Illinois Freepers back in the day.
Also lost so many good friends on here over the years, some I can name and some I cannot (due to three TIA's in the past six months) however I can still see your faces.
Peace to all and be well.
Without FR and Rush Limbaugh I'd have lost my sanity long ago.
Congratulations for your longevity! Many are called. Not so many survive 22 years around here.
Thank you, I appreciate that so much. You’re a long timer here also I see, congratulations on your longevity as well!
I signed up the same year...
All hail the Class of 98. 05/98
Still here big guy!
Retired and living big in Colorado.
Don’t forget our South Carolina Freeper rally...convertible Mustang...
I won that .270Rem in the raffle!!
Same here. May 18, 1998.
You always knew when there was a true “bombshell” story because you couldn’t get the site to load.
Here is to the class of 98!
Went back to check . . . I’m 21 on August 24th. My first Vanity thread was to hit the Hartford Courant reporter who called the site anti-semitic for a Joe Lieberman item. As a Jew, I didn’t want to ignore her comments on the site and wrote her a note which, to her credit, she did respond to.
Unfortunately, once or twice a year I do have to call out a Freeper comment here about something that does cross a line on Judaism. But 99.9% here are people I would be fully comfortable with to have a beer or be friends with.
22 years in November and I lurked for about 6 months first. Quite the group back then.
Heck, I was just graduating high school when you joined.
That gave me an odd case of nostalgia. Who would have guessed back then that I would miss the days when a lying sleaze seducing interns in the Oval Office was just about the worst the Democrats would choose as their public face? I miss Bill Clinton, his bimbo eruptions, and the comparative harmlessness of his small-minded corruption.
So glad to see you're doing well. Who else was there that you remember? I'm struggling to remember names though I can still see their faces.
what is the FR retirement plan like?
Still here...under a different account because my original got locked out by Rob when I posted negatively about him and he created this one. I was “An American!” back then.
September 14, 1998!
Congrats old timer. I’d never heard of this place until I clicked on a link from The Drudge Report in 1999. Couldn’t believe the stuff I was reading. All of it turned out to be true.
We may be old, or I should say I may be old and not be able to run anymore after four major back surgeries but I can still snipe! Is it go time yet?
Congratulations! Glad you're still here! We may be older but we can still run rings around these youngin's on here. We may be old but we're still treacherous!
