    For those of you who care, as one of JimRob's FR FB Admins I appealed our Sept. 2022 ban this AM and we are reinstated. Please keep in mind that JimRob established the FB page so we could keep in contact if/when the motherboard went down. Now you all can unload on me that you've never used FB and will NEVER use FB and all who do are Zuckbots. 😂😎 OK, go ahead and flame me, I'm wearing double-secret fireproof underwear. 😉

    AP ^ | By ERIC TUCKER and MIKE SCHNEIDER
    AP) — A Russian operative under the supervision of one of the Kremlin’s main intelligence services has been charged with recruiting political groups in the United States to advance pro-Russia propaganda, including during the invasion of Ukraine, the Justice Department said Friday. The indictment of Aleksandr Viktorovich Ionov reflects what U.S. officials say are ongoing Russian government efforts to meddle in the American political process, to shape public opinion and to sow discord and dissent on hot-button social issues. In this case, the authorities say, Ionov from 2014 through last March recruited political groups in Florida, Georgia and California and...

    A few days ago, it appeared that someone had hacked their way into a few Free Republic accounts, then commenced to post ridiculous, often obscene posts. As a matter of caution, I logged out for a few days. However, since I have returned to the fray, I see articles by headline as before, but nothing shows any text as it usually does. Now, I'm under the Nancy Pelosi rules of expectation in that: I have to open the post to see what's in it. I can deal with it. At least I can read what's "Hot" with other posts, or...

    WINNERS vs LOSERS When a winner makes a mistake, he says, "I was wrong". When a loser makes a mistake, he says, "It wasn’t my fault". A winner always gives 110% no matter how big or small the task. A loser is always "too busy" to do what is necessary and finds excuses. A winner goes through a problem. A loser goes around it, and never gets past it. A winner makes commitments. A loser makes promises. A winner says, "I'm good, but not as good as I ought to be". A loser says, "I'm not as bad as...

    The slur goes something like "you had one job to do", but because I'm a geek, immersed in IT and knowledgeable about webmaster things, I know it's a spoke in a wheel. But when there's a Copyright List that every responsible FReeper goes to when posting from a source which isn't familiar, there's a reasonable expectation that following what's stated on the Copyright List page is correct. I, for one, have MUCH BETTER things to do than to spend the time - repeatedly - posting something to FR only to have the message pop up "Post blocked due to copyright...
