  • Anyone else disillusioned with politics?

    FreeRepublic ^ | Jan 17 | RandFan
    I am finding myself more disillusioned with politics than ever before. It's not just the stolen presidential election but the entire media is now anti-conservative and going for the jugular to smear and destroy. Every article I come across you can see it and it's pretty depressing! They have some how got this guy in office and have to rally round him and boost him. Opposition must be ridiculed/smeared and called extreme. They're even coming after services like Parler and shutting them down. I still logon to FR - perhaps the last free space on the internet - but generally...

    I used to visit this forum years ago and I recently felt impressed that I should come back and share some info. I am a software engineer by trade. I write code. I've worked for many big tech companies over the years. Last year I worked for a well known big tech company on a year long contract. I worked on the software that searches all social media platforms and collects the data on you. Facebook, Twitter, et all, have back doors called APIs that allow authorized entities to request data. And that data is then packed up and sent...

    There is no doubt that Free Republic will be a target of the Blob. They will pressure the current Internet Service Provider, if it's based in the US, to cancel service based upon alleged threats of violence uttered by some.

    I want to get this down while it is still fresh in my mind so no responses tonight. I'll answer any questions, as I can, tomorrow. People need to hear what happened to keep abreast of the media narrative that is being formulated. Drove into D. C. and got into town around 4:30 PM. Since I have never been to DC I did the usual tourist thing of walking around and taking pictures of various historical monuments. I even scouted out the are around the National Christmas Tree where the main event was supposed to take place. I waved at...

    Sheila's Obituary and Memories page ^ | November 28, 2020 | by Jim Robinson
    Dear FRiends, Arrangements have been made with Whitehurst, Sullivan. Burns and Blair to lay my beloved wife Sheila to rest at 1:30, Wednesday, December 2 at Fresno Memorial Gardens. It will be a small graveside service with friends and family. We selected a site that is very near where my mother and father and sister Thelma are buried. It's a small plot, but there is room there for me, too, someday. This is by far the hardest and most heartbreaking thing I've ever done. Sheila was the light of my life. She loved God, loved life, and she loved nature...

    I'm experiencing a number of unusual communications issues that have been interfering with my ability to access and use web functions, including blocking my access to Free Republic, and disrupting my search functionality. I'm not talking about the recent issues with changes in the home port location of the FR webpage. I'm technically literate, so its not a problem with the cache being stuffed or anything obvious like that. Just got off the phone with Jim Rob so have cleared the potential issues there... but PLEASE NOTE: unfortunately, I called before seeing this: It appears it is a knowing...

    Jim and his family need our prayers tonight. Sheila has not been doing very well and has been bed-ridden for about 3 weeks. The visiting nurse just left after informing Jim that Sheila will probably pass tonight. Sheila's organs are shutting down, her blood pressure has dropped and her breathing is very labored.
  • Freeper Bender2 Has Passed Away

    11/18/2020 3:39:31 PM PST · by big'ol_freeper · 72 replies
    It is with deep sadness that I report that our friend Bender2, Danny Clay Lee, has passed through the vale to the other side. “Danny Lee peacefully passed away early this morning. I’ve read him many of your Facebook messages the last couple months. They brought him a little smile. - from Carey Canada” As many of you know, for me this is a real gut punch as Danny was a great friend who made us all laugh often. I met Danny once for lunch when I was on travel to Ft. Hood, TX. RIP Danny. You will be missed.

    Free Republic will be down all night tonight for migration. Will be going down at 8:00 pm (Pacific) and should up again within about 12 hours. Sorry, can't be helped. We received notice from our provider that they were closing their San Jose data center on May 15, 2021 and that we could move our equipment to their new center when it's ready. We thought we'd have months to prepare, but they recently moved the deadline up to Nov 15 (tomorrow). John scrambled and has a new home set up for us and is going to get a clean backup...
