    Hello, I was unsure how to get in touch so I thought this might get a mod's attention. It seems my posts are now being held back. If I have violated a rule I am sorry. If posting less can restore what I consider to be a great website that would be great. I believe in your mission and as a monthly donor put my money where bandwidth is, so to speak. Happy to back off posting a little, it's just your site is a little addictive. Did not mean to upset.

    I have emailed NEWSMAX about the terrible closed captioning on their programs describing how President Reagan words to Gorbachev were rendered as: "Mr. Gorbachev, SHARE this wall." Yesterday, the ad urging people who had taken Zantac or the generic and developed cancer to call a number, the generic, ranitidine, was rendered as "RAN INTO DEAN." Just now Mike Huckabee was introduced as "MY CARD. MMM-HMM. Would appreciate it if others would complain about this gibberish. Otherwise I think NEWSMAX is terrific. But there are people out here that would like to watch it and are hearing impaired. So could use...

    Screen print of Parler's captcha not recognizing my input. This after over 50 rejections of what I typed in. So I tried to join Parler. Their requirements for a password are as follows, Use eight or more characters with at least one capital letter, lowercase letter, number, and special character. So I did as they required. Yet, I was denied my chosen password 35 times before they accepted this password, !9-chucK-56 Which begs the question, why did they deny this one, !9-Chuck-20 Or this one 19Chuck-an-!2 Now consider this password they suggested I use aCb-1fd3-Q!&m Yet they rejected over 35...

    I have been posting articles on FR off and on for 22 years, and in that time I have become very good at using HTML to create the type of posts I like. Yet ever since FR changed the carrier of the site, none of my links work on articles I post. I have not changed what I use as HTML code, it's just that what I use does not work on FR any more. And not only links, but much of the HTML on my profile page is all screwed up as well. Is there a logical reason for...

    Los Angeles Lakers star LeBron James is known for being a great basketball player. Beyond that, he also seemingly tries to make a positive impact on the world through his various charities and organizations. By all accounts he is a generous person. However, one issue continues to arise – his tipping practices.

    Hey Dad, Our relationship is strained. It feels like it has been for a while. For the last four years, there has been an elephant in the room — I’d joke and call it an orange elephant, but I’m nervous that might end this earnest conversation before it even begins. ... Meanwhile, the U.S., which was built on immigration — grandma being one who fled the ravages of war in Europe for a better life here — is now a bastion of anti-immigrant hysteria. Our relatives on your side fought for the Union in the Civil War. Great-grandpa fought against...

    Housing and Urban Development (HUD) Secretary Ben Carson dunked on LeBron James on Thursday after cable comedian Trevor Noah referenced the NBA star in a joke mocking Carson. Carson was a surprise guest at an Evangelicals for Trump event in Grandville, Michigan, on Thursday evening during which he implored supporters to talk about religion and politics with their family and friends. Talk about “the things that are important to you, not about sports and entertainment. I mean, that’s okay, but really, is that what life is all about?” he asked. “Doesn’t matter that much if you can sink a basketball,”...

    LeBron James’ very public war of words with President Donald Trump has been a much-discussed topic over the past four years. It has involved the Los Angeles Lakers star referring to the President as a “bum” on social media, and featured multiple shots fired by the POTUS in James’ general direction regarding the NBA’s struggling TV ratings and him not being as good as Michael Jordan. This week, James sat down for an interview during which he discussed his beef with President Trump and where all parties involved go from here.

    A voter initiative led by former first lady Michelle Obama is partnering with a similar group founded by NBA star LeBron James and other prominent black athletes and entertainers to sponsor events in major U.S. cities starting next week to generate excitement about voting early for the Nov. 3 election. Both Obama and James have endorsed Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden and harshly criticized President Donald Trump. The former first lady’s When We All Vote and the Los Angeles Laker’s More Than A Vote are teaming to provide information, transportation, food, music, personal protective equipment and other support at early...

    LeBron James led the Los Angeles Lakers to their 17th franchise championship this past Sunday night. With a 106-93 victory over the Miami Heat, James officially won his fourth title on his third different team. During the postgame celebrations, while Rajon Rondo’s young son was drinking something or other, James could be seen doing a bunch of different handshakes and gestures with his teammates. One of them caught the eye of the Gangster Disciples, a notorious criminal organization formed in the South Side of Chicago in the late 1960s.

    Over 20 years ago I was a criminal. I used to listen to NWA’s rap song “F**k The Police.” But a few weeks ago, I spoke at a “Back the Blue” rally where I led a new chant, “Bless the Police.” Defunding police isn’t just a stupid idea, it’s a deadly one, particularly for blacks. Los Angeles Lakers superstar, Lebron James, owes blacks and cops an apology for endangering our lives. Unlike NBA legends Charles Barkley and Shaquille O’Neal, who had the courage to speak about the importance of policing black communities, Lebron’s propaganda about systemic police racism is sentencing...

    President Donald Trump called L.A. Lakers star LeBron James a “hater,” on Rush Limbaugh’s radio townhall broadcast on Friday. Trump reiterated that he won’t be watching the NBA with all its woke attacks on America, but he also took specific aim at loud anti-Trumper LeBron James. The president appeared on Limbaugh’s nationally syndicated radio program for two solid, commercial-free hours, and discussed a wide range of issues that are important to consider for the November general election. At one point, the discussion turned to the NBA, and Trump spoke specifically about James. “He’s a great basketball player, but people don’t...

    We're literally hunted EVERYDAY/EVERYTIME we step foot outside the comfort of our homes!" LeBron says (which is a weird thing for one of the most rich, famous, respected athletes on the planet to say). Well that same LeBron just added another castle to his collection. He paid $36.8 MILLION for a Hollywood mansion once owned by Katharine Hepburn. Who even knows how many houses this guy has now. All this oppression sure is paying off for him!
