Well done Larry. Appreciate you.
This was not meant to be a comprehensive history. Kristinn is working on that, although he lost TONS of his archival stuff.
My introduction to FR was in 2000 during the protests in front of the Broward County courthouse where the illegal recount was going on. The cops had created a DMZ between the Bush and Gore supporters. The Gorebots were getting most of the tv coverage, so there was a freeper photobombing them from behind the crowd with a big homemade FREE REPUBLIC sign. As soon as I got home I got in the computer and learned about FR. I never did find out who the freeper was....
Thanks to the Robinsons, ls and others who make this a great cite.
Basically 99.99% of my news comes via FR!
This has always been a great place. I used to love all the long, deep discussions, the expertises of various freezers. They could debunk just about anything and I really miss some of the Freepers who now grace the Wall of Fame.
This is great...I tell people about Free Republic all the time...and try to explain it’s benefits...
It’s a good piece, informative.
Fun times LS. Appreciate the article.
Bush National Guard letter expose known as Rathergate. On September 8, 2004,
September 4, 2020 The Atlantic runs a libelous BS story claiming Trump called dead soldiers stupid suckers. Every news outlet runs it as a legitimate story that is now in its third day. With many MSM outlets demanding that Trump prove a negative.
I wish someone would do a comprehensive history including honest accounts of the various wars and purges.
LOL! That's cold!
John Bolton: “I was there ... I didn’t hear it”.
Lol darn autocorrect
Thanks Eyes of Texas; LS; and Robinsons for making FR my go to since 1998.
Thank you for posting this. I miss Dr. Raoul and all the other FReepers who have passed on that have lightened my heart.
