  • I Joined FR 22 Years Ago (June 28th, 1998)

    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.

    Yesterday I had no problem accessing Free Republic. Today after a Microsoft update all of my browsers say Free Republic is not secure and I have to go through a few clicks to convince my browsers that I really want to see FR anyway. Anyone else seeing this? Also, the 2004 build was installed on my computer last night.

    I have a relative coming in from another state to stay with me. I am at risk and have been isolated. How do I introduce him into the home, 2 week quarantine? In Garage? Cannot find a camper.

    I'm 68 y/o, not in bad shape, but not excellent, have historical issues. I live in CA (central valley). Bottom line: I'm not convinced I'll contract COVID, but I do believe I won't survive it if I do. This has me getting my life in order, in my case, a herculean effort to get it done before possible contraction. Need to brush up my will, personal finances, administration..........then there are physical assets, misc. deals I'm working on. It's a huge job and I must get it done quickly. Lastly, I'm going to show my daughter how to give FR updates...

    I got a nice dose of reality with Free Republic off the air this morning. By 8 am I searched, "Is Free Republic Down" and it took me to a site that confirmed, that it was down for everyone. By 9 am, insidiously, I noticed a frontal headache and a little anxiety. By 10 I was having trouble concentrating and getting a bit restless and short with co-workers, By 11 there was some paranoia with thoughts like "What if Free Republic never comes back up?" and "I think I'm hooked on this site", and "What if I can't recover from...

    This place is getting more like facebook and twitter, stealthly deleting posts for not stated reasons. Sometimes whole topics. You don't know they're gone until you browse your comments and find they don't exist anymore. Way to go censors. 20+ year guy here and i will say this is a new level of low. Read it while you can, i am sure whoever's deleting comments tonight will not want to have this out there.
