    I was with FR even before my sign up date states. Lost my password and couldn't retrieve it back then. God bless Jim Robinson but with a little effort, allowing "likes" and a little advertising, etc. FR would be worth billions.

    What does the US Constitution say about removing a president who is out of office? And who presides over this farce? The Constitution says the Chief Justice will preside over a trial of the "president". BUT TRUMP is now a private citizen. Joe Biden is president.

    To All: Considering the times which we are in, and the extreme hate by the left, I wonder if it would be possible to wipe our posting history clean in the forum. It may become quite prudent.. I was going to just send an email to Jim about this, but I am hoping to get more input from the forum. I know I’ve said some inflammatory things during these past few months post election - and while I still hold those feelings I do not wish to somehow stand a show trial for having expressed those opinions. The left had...

  • Freerepublic Legacy, what is the plan?

    When Jim announced last night he had to do an emergency move of servers, I will be honest, I was concerned with all the shenanigans going on in the world. So happy to see it up and running. Is there a plan for the future for when those who are running the site can no longer do so? If not maybe a good time to start thinking about it. Alomo-girl is gone, all that information.

  • Do Bezos (Washington Post) and others have a financial stake in promoting a lockdown?

    The mind of the chief | 08/24/2020 | ChiefJayStrongbow
    The lockdown is crushing small businesses as Amazon and the giant box stores, such as Walmart, Costco, Home Depot, etc. thrive. The Washington Post and other news outlets seem to actively promote the need for a lockdown, but is it even necessary? Are scare tactics being used as a cudgel to wipe out small brick and mortar competition and fundamentally transform the way we conduct commerce?

    I have Firefox with Stylus. Stylus allows me to change styling, including background colors, of certain elements on a page via CSS. I can then apply this CSS to one site only, like Freerepublic.com. I'm able to change the background color of my username on this site in a reply like this: a[href*="chuckr163"] { background-color: #99d78b !important; } But how do I change the background color of my whole reply but not anyone else's reply? All replies have a CSS selector of "div.a2" but I don't want to color all replies, just my own replies. Thank you!

    I have not seen this subject brought up anywhere. Is the gov't recording and filing all of these Chinese- Wuhan Virus test, antibody test etc. Tens of millions of these test will be performed, maybe most of the country when it is all over. Are the test being destroyed after checking for the Kung Flu? I would bet our DNA is being stored and cataloged by the gov't for future use. If so what will the gov't do with this info? Demand lifestyle chnages, Social Credit use, sterilize people with genetic defects?
