I had been following our new President's crimes and corruption spree by reading and posting to Prodigy's Whitewater bulletin board at night and on weekends.

Seems like I remember it was a little more than nights and weekends. Heh heh.

Thanks for sharing this, I've always wondered how FR started out. God bless Jim Robinson and all the others that bust their asses to make this such a great site!

Thanks for posting. I didn't know all this, although I've never had any big issues with how FR is run and have contributed to share in the expenses. What an inspiring story about a great American family.

This is my favorite picture from the March for Justice, October 31, 1998. That event changed many of our lives...

I remember reading this before, and thinking this is someone I need to watch, because he hit a bell in my mind. Maybe this was reprinted somewhere. But it is entirely possible I have been around all that time. I know lurked forever, and signed up as Egads in June 98... until I got booted by CAL for calling Keyes a jerk... LOL Seeing this again, I can't tell you what a great ride this place has been, and it isn't over by a long shot.... Lets Ride Again...LOLOL

I can't help but wonder how much of the conservative movement's impact will be written into the history books of the future. We see so much of American and world history being rewritten and deconstructed before our very eyes by the left.

I'm just glad and grateful to see FR writing - and creating - some history the US can be proud of.

Do you have an address where I can send a check??

I understand completely, my wife has MS and she may be in a wheelchair someday herself.

Thanks for posting this. I read some account earlier but now have this one bookmarked for reference.

During the next fund drive I would dearly like to see more people contributing. I was stunned to see how few from my own state did contribute, compared to the total numer of FReepers on our list.

I would like to see Jim receive more revenue personally from FReeper contributions and never would view that as being ripped off. I appreciate FR and would consider it a tremendous loss if FR shut down.
