  • too many ghost posters on FR

    05/22/2024 8:54:54 AM PDT · by Ikeon · 299 replies
    Im not enjoying the free republic lime I used to. Too many newbies that are trolls, looking for someone to drag into their abyss of self hatred. Theres been a lot of posts linked to posters with no bios, I think admin needs to limit the number of posts or remove those without any bio info.
  • Old School Memes from FReepers Past

    04/04/2024 8:11:10 AM PDT · by RasterMaster · 72 replies
    Before I even knew what a "meme" was, I remember discovering the most incredible ones and knowing exactly who crafted them. Since then, many of their names have escaped me in the span of time. As I reflect on over 20 years since joining FR, I'm reminded of members who are no longer with us (due to bans or departures) but whose art shaped much of our common history. Calling all our long-standing members! Do any of you recall specific names or have memorable examples from our community's golden era, spanning from the late 1990s to 2010? Share your stories...

    Woke up the other morning with my better half screaming, ran into the kitchen and she was on her hands and knees on the kitchen counter due to Mickey. I have taken two down so far. I used peanut butter and Nutella to bait them. Maybe that is all, but need to be sure.

    I’ve noticed the last few days when hitting news/activism or EVERYTHING ELSE which is how I normally browse the threads of the day, it comes up blank and says “your query returned no results”. I’ve tried everything browser related clearing the history, cache and cookies. Even did an update. Then I tried Safari browser on my iPhone and the same issue. I just realized if I sign out the threads appear as normal. As soon as I sign in, the same black screen and error prompt appears.

    I've been posting a series of J6 videos over the past few years that show abnormal incursions into the Capitol that were atypical of MAGA followers of President Trump. One of them was of a group of long-haired youths wearing gas masks who entered a room through a broken window, and were being given orders through the window by a woman with a bullhorn.See that video here at this link.While searching through my posting history to locate this video, I came across prior posts where the HTML appears to have been altered, removing the actual link to the video and...

    OK, so I woke up this morning with a thought. It may not be worth anything. People here are understandable frustrated with the fundraising and lack of donations to the site. We also do not want to clutter the site with ads and become beholden to outside interests. We want to remain as independent and self-reliant as possible. Why not merchandize the FR name? Sell coffee cups, water bottles, t-shirts, etc with the FR URL and logo? I'm a woodturner and can make pens with logos/messages on them (though I *am* employed full time and would not have the time...

  • Commerce Sec’y Raimondo: Can’t Guarantee Biden Will Get Reciprocity if We Lift Tariffs on China, Main Reason Is ‘Fighting Inflation’

    During an interview with Bloomberg on Monday, Commerce Secretary Gina Raimondo stated that there is no guarantee President Joe Biden will get something in return from China if the U.S. relaxes tariffs on China, and the main reason for him considering lifting tariffs is to combat inflation. Co-host David Westin asked, “In terms of specific tariffs being taken off or not, is it possible it could be bilateral? Is it possible China could actually give something to the United States to try to reformulate our trade relations?” Raimondo responded, “Certainly, that is possible and you raise an excellent point, which...
