    From dp0622 | 03/16/2018 3:34:30 AM PDT read My wife has found a massive lump on her after having had breast cancer twice. The others were pea sized. This one isn’t. PLEASE post for pre-emptive prayers before she sees the doctor today. You can use my screen name in it. I dont care. She has had cancer altogether four times already. She CAN’T go through this again. WE can’t go through this again. Thank you.

    <p>As of midnight on the morning of March 1, the credit card processing company we use upgraded there systems software and now our system is incompatible with theirs. I'm not a systems tech so can't sufficiently explain all the details, but long story short, after lots of recompiling and rebuilding, John has been unable to resolve the incompatibility issues without impacting the rest of our system and doesn't want to risk bringing down our entire system. Kind of risky doing this kind of work in real time under a full load with no way to test.</p>
  • FREE REPUBLIC FREEPATHON is like the NRA. If you don't give, YOU lose freedom.

    Opinion ^ | 1 March 2018 | xzins
    What do you lose if you don't support advocacy groups like the NRA? It's pretty simple. Lobbyists and activist groups work on Congress and on legislatures. They work tirelessly to influence opinion and to promote 2d amendment freedom. Would Congress be supportive of gun rights if these groups were banded together to make politicians pay at the voting booth for violations of 2d amendment freedom? Absolutely not. We know the swamp is bought and paid for by the highest bidder. We don't like to acknowledge that, but "Chamber of Commerce" is a curse word in most of red state America....

    I have an important announcement of interest to long-time FReepers: FReeper GladesGuru, ecologist, and private property advocate, has died from complications due to prostate cancer. He was 75. Jan (pronounced “Yan”) Jacobson was a man of acerbic wit who could cut to the bottom line with a merciless precision. Pity the bureaucrat or academic peddling questionable “facts” under his scrutiny. His passion was wildlife biology and its relation to habitat. For over thirty years, he was Director of the Everglades Institute, a private parcel within the Big Cypress National Preserve, immediately adjacent to Everglades National Park. The parcel is unusual...

    Everyone I meet down the Pub thinks I'm some brilliant businessman forging and empire. They see me engaged in my work, deep in thought and driving ahead. They comment, your the guy who always works. The chick bartenders whisper they wish their husbands we 1/2 as ambitious. They know what I want, pour before I ask and are happy to be part of my insane drive. They just don't realize I'm Freepin' ...and yes it takes immense concentration and a great sense of humor. Love FreeRepublic! Class of '98.

    Remember a month or two ago, when the Democrat party leaders all woke up one morning and started in with that fake news chorus, something to the effect of “Trump is about to fire Mueller, and boy oh boy, if he does, well, then that’s obstruction, we’ll impeach him!”? They were all saying the same thing as if they had received their fake news marching orders from the DNC. This just sounds like a rehashing of that same fake news meme - but a month late. The original strategy was, if they couldn’t actually get Trump on collusion, the next...

    I have a question to FReepers out there,and also the Moderators. I was recently suspended from posting for several days, TWICE for the reason that I was posting the article of authors who are banned from this site. Being suspended means you cannot even send a message to the moderator, so I was unable to ask for clarification. Had I been allowed to send a message, I would at least know the name of the author whose article was not welcome. I learned that the article of one such writer -- C. Edmund Wright ( who used to be a...
  • Some tips for using FR Search option (Vanity)

    Often Freepers try the search function and miss that the article has previously posted. Here is a trick to help find previously posted items: 1. Use only one word from the title, not the whole title. Sometimes titles are abbreviated or the different sources run the same article using slightly different titles. An exact title search will not, in such cases find the previously posted articles. So, pick only the most important word. 2. Under the search bar, there is a pull-down menu. Use this to select "title" for your search rather than the standard keyword search. The difference in...

    It's an anniversary of sorts -- and should be something of a national holiday. Twenty years ago, Jim Robinson became FReeper #1 on this website, and we all are much the better for it. I found via my news aggregator at the time, The Drudge Report. Quickly I lost interest in that site in favor of this my new home page. I found that Freerepublic is just not a news aggregator, but an intelligence aggregator. Thanks to the overwhelming diversity of interests amongst the FReeper community, we can go from the smallest subatomic particles to the vastness of inter-gallactic...

    It has been one hell of a year for us Freepers, for those who go way back it has been 2 decades of political drama, both horrifying and amazingly good. Over all I think most of us are grateful for the last year, I know it has been one of my best in quite a while. So this black Friday make a donation to Freerepublic, for Christmas let's get this over with, so Jim can worry about fighting the hackers, keeping the code cool and enjoying the holidays. If we make it big we could even take care of next...

    Today years of home schooling and teaching honor, duty and love for country came to fruition. My two oldest sons Marshall (19) and Mitchell (18) left for MCRD San Diego. These are two fine young Christian men who have never gave their mother or I any real trouble or grief. They have never so much as back talked us. It was a proud moment for us as we watched them take the oath to protect the Constitution of the United States. Neither of them were looking for a career they just wanted to do what they felt was a duty...
