    My withered brain | 14 October 2018 | Me
    Was at a mall today, bored and waiting for my wife to stop spending my money. So I tried to go onto Free Republic to pass the time. I didn’t know I was on JC Penny’s WiFi (I was not in the store). Can’t quite figure out what word has been banned... Free? Republic? No wonder they’re going out of business.

    I joined FR on 8 October 2000. On the 14th I made my first contribution and coined the phrase, "Broken Glass Republican" at the same time. (See the link above)(A thank you to the Wayback Machine for archiving the post. JimRob says the FR database has been corrupted.) The term was picked up by Byron York who got it from his sister, a FReeper, over dinner and published in National Review. Peggy Noonan then used it in her article The Meaning of the Vote Democracy is a blessing--especially for "Broken Glass Republicans". It was also used repeatedly by Rush on...

    There is life beyond q. And as much as q-pers may dislike non-q-believers, that does not make them trolls. Long-term FReepers are not trolls. If we can't coexist on one forum, then other arrangements can be made. Advise you cool your jets.

    Encyclopedia Virginia ^ | May 23 1861 | Nelson D. Lankford
    The Virginia Convention of 1861, also known later as the Secession Convention, convened on February 13, 1861, on the eve of the American Civil War (1861–1865), to consider whether Virginia should secede from the United States. Its 152 delegates, a majority of whom were Unionist, had been elected at the behest of the Virginia General Assembly, which also directed that their decision be ratified by a statewide referendum. Several states in the Deep South, beginning with South Carolina, had already left the Union in response to the election in November 1860 of Abraham Lincoln as United States president. Virginia, however,...

    Just in case you are feeling sorry for yourself today. You may have good reason, but imagine: Imagine you had to flee your family, your country (Iraq) for fear of your life. Your own family threatened to take your life for becoming a Christian. Imagine you had to leave everything of value and go to one country, then another and finally be settled in the United States. Imagine you had a degree in your own country but it has no value in the US. Imagine you need to go to college but are unqualified for financial aid because you already...

    <p>As of midnight on the morning of March 1, the credit card processing company we use upgraded there systems software and now our system is incompatible with theirs. I'm not a systems tech so can't sufficiently explain all the details, but long story short, after lots of recompiling and rebuilding, John has been unable to resolve the incompatibility issues without impacting the rest of our system and doesn't want to risk bringing down our entire system. Kind of risky doing this kind of work in real time under a full load with no way to test.</p>
  • FREE REPUBLIC FREEPATHON is like the NRA. If you don't give, YOU lose freedom.

    Opinion ^ | 1 March 2018 | xzins
    What do you lose if you don't support advocacy groups like the NRA? It's pretty simple. Lobbyists and activist groups work on Congress and on legislatures. They work tirelessly to influence opinion and to promote 2d amendment freedom. Would Congress be supportive of gun rights if these groups were banded together to make politicians pay at the voting booth for violations of 2d amendment freedom? Absolutely not. We know the swamp is bought and paid for by the highest bidder. We don't like to acknowledge that, but "Chamber of Commerce" is a curse word in most of red state America....
