    I would have to believe that the majority of veteran Freepers are over 50. Most prolific posters. How would we know if and when we lose our favorites, and or their family members?
  • COVID-Shamers And Seven Of Their Most Ridiculous Arguments

    04/13/2020 6:51:09 AM PDT · by Kaslin · 38 replies ^ | April 13, 2020 | Scott Morefield
    Have you ever been COVID-shamed online? Maybe you posted pictures of you and your family at a park and got reamed by someone for not being at home. Maybe, heaven forbid, you even dared to express a view on social media that strays from the ‘accepted opinion’ of months of mandated quarantine and government-enforced shutdowns until not a single solitary individual is infected with the virus. If the wrong people get wind you’ve expressed such an opinion, you’ll reap the whirlwind, I can promise you that. I’ve been there and done that. Fortunately, however, my work in conservative and right-of-center...

    I suppose this could be considered a waste of time, but I thought it might be a good ongoing thread to track cases of the Corona virus that are directly or tangentially impacting Freepers. We have 2 indirect contacts I know of so far.

    The company said Thursday that sales at its stores open for at least one year, a key metric, increased 9.1% during its previous quarter compared with the same period last year. Sales at Costco in February were up 12.4% from a year ago. The company attributed around 3% of that to “an uptick in consumer demand” from concerns over coronavirus. Shoppers have posted pictures on social media in recent days of lines snaking around Costco stores. They have also posted pictures of shelves empty of sanitizers at Costco, Walmart, CVS, Walgreens and other drug stores. Shares of Costco, Walmart, other...
  • Americans swarm Costco to stock up in panic over Coronavirus

    Jerusalem Post ^ | 03/04/2020
    American shoppers flock to branches of the major department store Costco across the country in order stock up on supplies in fear of a coronavirus outbreak, CNBC reported. The various necessities being sought include hand sanitizer, paper towels, trail mix, water and surgical masks, all of which are being bought in bulk. Citing Nielsen, CNBC reported that hand sanitizer sales are up 73% since February 22, while surgical masks sales are up 319%. However, Nielsen added that it does not expect hand sanitizer sales to peak any time soon. The sudden surge of panic-induced shoppers is predicted by some to...

    It seems that the world is fighting two fronts on the spread of the novel coronavirus: On the medical front and the misinformation front, which could lead to more people getting infected. A disturbing number of people already think that you get coronavirus by drinking Corona Beer.We could all use a little less fear-mongering and fake news about the deadly virus, but some information is so convincing they seem true. Below are some of the misinformation being circulated on social media.  1|  Gargling salt water can help prevent the spread of coronavirus. It might alleviate halitosis to some extent, but rinsing...

    This goes out to all the Illinois Freepers --- at least those of us who are left. Are there any besides Lurker and I? The purpose of this thread is to find out who's left here in this Socialist Hell-Hole run by Fat Boy JB Pritzker, the puppet of Mike Madigan. Let's get together, enjoy a few adult beverages and brainstorm about our plans to either get the hell out of this state, or participate in saving it during the next election. I personally think this state is lost and we should drink ourselves to oblivion and get the hell...
  • How do you Freep? (rare vanity)

    06/07/2019 1:30:26 PM PDT · by Eddie01 · 42 replies
    Hey Freepers, I have Breaking News on the left and Front Page News on the right. I used to follow activism but since the days of Walter Reed and then Trump Rallys, just not seeing much content, which is WRONG! "Articles", all the time. I've only been out here since '98, so looking for more advanced set ups. Some people find and post to articles that are days old. I have no idea how they find older relevant content. Feel like I'm not getting the most our of my account settings. Interested in how you all do it. Maybe a...

  • FBI’s Russian-influence probe includes a look at far-right news sites

    McClatchy Washington Bureau ^ | March 20, 2017 | BY PETER STONE AND GREG GORDON
    WASHINGTON Federal investigators are examining whether far-right news sites played any role last year in a Russian cyber operation that dramatically widened the reach of news stories — some fictional — that favored Donald Trump’s presidential bid, two people familiar with the inquiry say. Operatives for Russia appear to have strategically timed the computer commands, known as “bots,” to blitz social media with links to the pro-Trump stories at times when the billionaire businessman was on the defensive in his race against Democrat Hillary Clinton, these sources said. Russian President Vladimir Putin is accused by the FBI of ordering a...
