  • Ancient Trove of Sore Loserman Bumper Stickers Unearthed!!

    While organizing my basement a few weeks ago, I discovered an incredible trove of Sore Loserman bumper stickers, almost 200 of them, which are not doing any good at all in my basement. They are very much like the white version at the link. So starting now, for every $30 contributed to Free Republic, the contributor will qualify to have their very own piece of history mailed directly to their domicile. All you have to do is freepmail me your address and the link to where you brag about your new acquisition and associated contribution in the fundraiser thread. So...
  • And yet another underground antifreeper campaign being conducted via freepmail

    07/17/2017 9:48:56 PM PDT · by Jim Robinson · 127 replies
    Received a copy of the message pasted below that apparently is circulating via freepmail. In response, all I can say is John is my son and my partner in FR along with Chris and Amy. None of us make a six figure salary. I designed and wrote the original version of FR back in '96, but it was my very first internet project ever. It worked, but codewise it was a dog. And virtually impossible to maintain. When John came in with me, he rewrote the software and made it work greater than ever before and included maintenance tools that...
  • Response time seems to be back to normal (for now). Prayers up.

    07/16/2017 6:00:14 PM PDT · by Jim Robinson · 34 replies
    Response time seems to be back to normal (for now). Sorry, don't know why. The system was dragging all day, but started working normally for the past hour or so. Thought maybe John had found and fixed the problem, but he said no. He doesn't know either. We have several servers running at the data center and most of them have been running fine. Could be the network switch or the front-end router/server (but it seems to be working fine). The database server isn't even breathing hard. The webservers are getting bogged down occasionally, but don't know yet if that's...
  • Possible temporary workaround for our recurring response time problem. Also, John has checked in!

    07/14/2017 1:31:10 PM PDT · by Jim Robinson · 57 replies
    I'm very sorry (again), but our recurring response time nightmare is back (again). The good news, though, is John has finally checked in. He's been out of town a lot in the last couple weeks dealing with some urgent family issues regarding his other half's adopted child. Praying that works out soon. He also says his phone needs to be replaced and has not had time to get it done. The bad news is, he has not been able to resolve our server issue yet. He suspects it's some kind of intermittent error in our network switch or router and...

  • Possible temporary workaround for pages and sidebars not fully loading problem

    07/12/2017 12:48:47 PM PDT · by Jim Robinson · 113 replies
    I'm very sorry about the response time problems we've been having recently and now this page loading problem we're having today. I've called and left messages on John's phone, email, freepmail and facebook several times per day since Saturday. No luck. He seems to be off the grid. Don't know if he took a trip or his phone is broken, lost or turned off and he has no internet service in his new apartment or what, but I've been unable to reach him. Also do not have his new address. Hopefully, he'll check in soon and get it fixed. Don't...

  • Questions: Why are all links to FR posts deleted at Google?

    June 23, 2017 | me
    I dropped in Google today. In the past, I could find articles posted at Freerepublic using a keyword search. Now all I can see is a link to Freerepublic and a small text window for a keyword search inside Freerepublic. All links to Freerepublic articles were deleted, except a few which mention Freerepublic and Google together. Is it due to Freerepublic's request or Google's unilateral attempt to erase Freerepublic's footprint on Internet?

    Build Your Own Blog ^ | 5/27/2017 | Matthew 'Kaboomis' Loomis
    No need to quit your job to start. Just begin laying the groundwork for a more prosperous future in your spare time. Would an extra $500 a month change your financial future? That is definitely possible. In fact, you could earn a lot more per month as a blogger. Once you are in a position to commit full-time to your blog, you can rise up to the $5000 per month income level. That and much more is also possible. Being your own boss means you get to choose your salary.
  • We have installed a new SHA-256 secure server certificate on and NEW donate link

    05/31/2017 2:41:24 PM PDT · by Jim Robinson · 59 replies
    ANNOUNCEMENT: We have installed a new SHA-256 secure server certificate on our domain and we have a NEW donate link: FR is now more secure than ever! Google, Firefox, et al, were flagging our old SHA-1 secure server as "not secure" even though our certificate was paid-up, still valid, still in force and our secure server was still encrypting our donation transactions as securely as always to the SHA-1 standard. You should see a green "Secure" padlock now when you click on our new donate link and that signifies that your transaction will be encrypted by the newly...

  • With Conservative Media Being Silenced, Will Free Republic Stand Up for Trump? [FReepathon]

    05/27/2017 3:21:44 PM PDT · by xzins · 131 replies
    Gateway Pundit has retweeted a report from that Hannity will be fired next week. True or not, it is a reminder that the number of conservative media outlets are few in number. My personal opinion is that the liberal world was shocked that conservative media was able to overcome their attempts at brainwashing during this last election. They thought they had it in the bag. They thought their voice was so powerful that it could not be overcome. Now it appears they are attempting to silence conservative voices one by one. Hannity is definitely one of those pro-Trump voices...
