  • I was assaulted by a taxi driver; not sure what to do

    11/27/2017 4:38:10 AM PST · by proud American in Canada · 110 replies
    Hi, I am a longtime FReeper and just needed to talk to someone. I will not post and run, but I must say, I am just getting into bed. I had to go to the hospital because I slipped on our hardwood stairs, and my head hit the wall. I had a headache that would not quit, no matter how much ice I put on it. I even took a half of a tramadol that I got a couple of years after I fell on the ice in our rural Canadian driveway; nothing helped. The hospital told me that the...
  • Vanity on vanities--post and donate to FReepathon

    This is a news forum. But I sure am seeing a lot of vanity posts lately. You know our readers generally frown on vanities (unless exceptional in quality) so if you feel the urge to post yet another run of the mill vanity, please resist it. Or, in the very least, be sure to submit a donation along with your vanity submission. Thank you very much.

    I have received an invitation to a luncheon to discuss my back nerve problems from a group I do not know. The only people who know about this problem are my doctors who are all within the same group. So how did this other group know about my problem? Did someone sell my medical problem? That would be a HPIA violation of the law. This was a personal addressed invitation. I am not sure how to proceed, but if I get some great advice here, I will send $250 to FR and as Proof of that commitment, I will send...

    Currently using Firefox to login and post because, today, I can no longer login with IE9 as I have for 15 years. I reach the main forum page, nut not logged in as usual (convenient was selected).

  • How do I find out why a post was pulled? Who do I contact?

    10/19/2017 6:14:12 PM PDT · by naturalman1975 · 81 replies
    I have just had a thread pulled and I am rather baffled as to why. And I'm not sure how to even contact somebody to ask why which is why I am posting here. The reason the thread was pulled according to the post is: "Why is this in the news forum?" The answer to that question is because it was a post taken directly from an online newspaper - the Daily Mail I've been posting here for fourteen years and this is the first time I've ever seen this happen. If the rules have changed, I'm happy to follow...

  • Self-evident truth: Nazism and Communism are godless mass-murdering totalitarian ideolgies

    It's a self-evident truth that fascism, Nazism, etc., are godless, evil, mass-murdering totalitarian ideologies as all freedom loving, non-brainwashed Americans readily admit. How many millions of people must be slaughtered in the name of communism and how many times must they threaten the entire free world with total annihilation until the brainwashed democrats denounce godless Marxism as evil and anti-American? Likewise, how many millions of unborn babies will be offered on the altar of "woman's choice" before they realize abortion is an evil, godless abomination? The Nazi's were and are an evil, godless, mass-murdering totalitarian ideology. The Communists were and...

    Last night around 10:30 Pacific, I posted two comments, one an embedded YouTube link (which of course didn't show up in the post), and the second, the URL to that YouTube of Trump's Saudi speech. This morning, the discussion thread is up and the comments are missing. No not that they were removed by a moderator. Never seen this before and after the recent downtime, raising this question in case anyone else has seen same. Maybe, if others are seeing comments disappear, there is an underlying technical issue?

    We've all seen pages being slow to load / partial page loads for the last couple months. This goes beyond that. Two things I'm seeing: 1) Blank pages being "served". You hit a link, and get a blank page. 2) Connection errors - This is happening when posting a comment. When posting, I get a "server connection reset" error. Is it time to swap out the hamsters running the FR servers for some fresh ones?

    Our FRiends have inspired us, made us laugh and think, and (may I say?) helped us feel a little less lonely and despondent these past eight years. For all our arguments, diversity of thought, and passion, Jim and his crew really do keep the light of freedom and constitutional consciousness alive. With this long-awaited victory, how about considering a donation to FR and a moment, now, to name and commend one or two special FRiends. Thank YOU.
