Everyone please send whatever you are able to, whether it is $10, $100 or $1,000+. The DUmmies, Morons, Kos Kiddies and that crew are laughing up their sleeves. Jim may have to make this site members only or allow ads. Better for us to just help with what we can. Maybe you can donate as a memorial for a lost loved one, a servicemember who never made it home or was disabled defending our country. Perhaps you'd like to give to keep free discussion alive and to show them that we're not knuckling under. I'm sure a well thought out or prayerful meditation will lead you to see the need and how you can help. If every registered FReeper and our lurkers would each just help out with a fin or a sawbuck, or better yet a Ben Franklin, we could put this to bed and get on with the conservative cause.
I’m under the impression that both sides of the political spectrum are reflecting nothing more nor less than the instructions and wishes of the United Nations.
Sure I can. Those are small flaws. There is still no other site that can match it in aggregating news and conservative commentary, even if FR is not as good at that as it used to be.
You apparently have.
I forgot to ping Jim Rob.
I thought it would be easier on him if I reposted, instead of leading him to another link to click on.
Thank You for helping.
Don’t ya hate when that happens? I always catch it right after I hit “Post”.
If those are what you consider small flaws, I’d hate to see other sites.
Oh, LLS, thank you.....but speaking for myself, I don’t remember you being harsh.
There were a few who went absolutely nuts, demeaned the South, Southerners, Texans, etc. I don’t think that reflects badly on FR, just the individuals who were doing it. There are jerks in every crowd. You weren’t one of them. We all have our candidates, and we support them with everything we have.
Your post was the post of a really standup person.
I agree....if he hadn’t handled it well, hadn’t had the ability to laugh at himself, it would have been even worse.
Thank you Catherine.
Jim might as well give up on FR. It's days of remaining life are few in number.
Because there are literally hundreds of individuals who can take a couple of hundred dollars, buy a used server off E-Bay and Shazaam! -- there will be hundreds of newer, better FRs.
And each and every one of them will immediately get ALL of the members currently contributing to, or freeloading from, FR to come over and sign up. These transferring individuals will all be able to sign-up at every one of the hundreds of newer, better FRs because -- they won't have to contribute any real money -- the operating costs at every site will be so low.
Advertisers are guaranteed to fight each other to sign up to advertise at these newer, better FRs because -- well just because they will! Everybody knows they will!
And everyone will get along wonderfully with each other at all of these wondrous new sites? After all the only reason people don't get along on FR is because of Jim and his silly "principles", that are forced on everyone by his jack-booted, brown-shirted "Mods". The new sites will be la-la lands of smiling, happy customers, singing "cumbaya" and "If I could buy the world a Coke"!
So Jim might as well accept it and either give up and shut down FR completely, or accept the fact that FR will just become a backwater hobby site for him and John, with a few "far right wing crazies" posting about "Principles" and other things nobody really cares about when push comes to shove.
As best I can guess from reading all the posters on this thread, Jim has maybe 2-3 weeks before all the new and improved, "one-day to setup" FR sites blast their way onto the Innertoobs, and zoom their way up the web-site ratings charts.
Soooo, either FR and Jim's efforts will soon die, or .... there are a lot of whining, complaining, wannabees who would rather just keep FR around, reading its content without contributing a cent, and spending their time telling Jim how they could do it better, faster, cheaper, with high quality -like the old days, yadda, yadda, yadda, and who will NEVER, EVER get around to actually firing up those hundreds of newer, better FRs.
But, surely they really, really mean to get those $200 sites fired up pronto, don't you think 2DV?
Let's keep our eye out for these new FRs. If you spot them first, let me know, and I'll do the same for you, ok?
A good sense of humor and the ability to laugh with, rather than be laughed at and get angry, is a good way to handle life.
My Dad always swore by that. It has served me well.
There's ‘plenty of time’ between now and November for the undecided....and for those who might even change their minds from how they see things now... we don't know what can happen between now and November. So I say give people time to sort it out for themselves and important to do that...and it's not just the Republicans struggling...the web certainly evidences Democrats are having quite the time justifying their support for Obama....interesting times doesn't say enough.
Further more, God can certainly arrange numerous happenings between now and then .....you just don't know what even tomorrow will bring let alone 6 months from now.
But I will not be voting for Romney.....I'll trust God to “float my boat” ....since He handled Noah's ark He can certainly can handle my little wee craft....
Very well said and true, too.
You are 100% correct. Everyone with $200 to spare can become an FR. Hell, for $400 they can become the next Drudge. Heck, it’d be cheap at 10 times the price.
