I can't stop laughing: Message to rimjob on Facebook's FR page:

Please hurry Jim. The longer I am kept from FR the more I feel a change coming over me. This morning I waved at my gay neighbor, I'm feeling less hatred towards Blacks and Mexicans and I'm beginning to think that Obama may have been born in Hawaii. Please hurry Jim, before I believe in Evolution!!!!!

I think it must have been inspired by this post:

Silver lining: Got an outside chore done yesterday afternoon. Had been waiting only 7 years or so. If FR stays down a week or so I will be caught up!

57. And the comments on that page about Freeperville are hilarious!

Clearly, the hamster that ran the wheel that powered their server has died. Fret not, Freepers. The comment section of Yahoo News is always looking for a few more ignorant suckers to fan the flames of hate and bigotry.

It says something when you go to the comment sections on leftist run sites and there aren't right-wingers spewing vitriol about the site and its members.

Dear god what are the wackadoodles going to do.. I know send more MONEY - suckers.


Guadalupe- In one comment you are able to allude Limbaugh (Draft Dodging, uneducated drug addict who lives from paid Gold Digger to Gold Digger) four times without attribution. Congrats. Do you have any thoughts of your own (like that ever happens with conservatives). Have you considered that Jim Robinson has taken the cash from the recent Beg-A-Thon and run off. He has been living off the tax payers for years for his health care, now he lives off the fools who donate to his Nazi Comment Page.

When it's 'up' it imparts the same amount of intelligence as when it's 'down'. Which is none.


FreeRepublic does a public service by rounding up all the right wing nuts in one deluded and deranged place.

Hopefully it will stay down. FR is a complete waste of perfectly good bandwidth.


I suspect Jim has moved to Costa Rica in advance of Rush Limbo, or signing contracts to move into Glenn Beck's own version of Jonestown or finally managed to move in with and begin living in sin with Saint Sarah Palin. He may be slumbering in a chair at CPAC or the Family Values meeting. Or he's having a week long orgy of smoking cigars or pot, drinking or whatever his problem is. Freedumb Republicans will flock like moths to the light of DU. Get ready, MIRT.

92. this HAS to be a joke

Freerepublic is a place of sanity in an increasingly deluded world. Like most of the internet, 90% is dross, but the other 10% is pure gold. Articles are discussed, local information brought to bear, subject matter experts chime in, and political analysts explain the spin. Probably the best site on the net for understanding current events.

or maybe Jim is just trolling the site posting crap

76. FreeRepublic gets $1000/DAY

JimRob gets $350,000 a year in donations and also $46,000 in veterans and disability payments (from tax payers).

Like Romney, he never releases any tax returns. There is no record of him making any contribution to any of the candidates he so loves.

He is a scam artist. Begs poverty for a new $7k server, gold plated. Televangelists do the same, but for higher stakes. What does he do with $1000/day? His son John claims to have his own income from an employer, but gets paid a salary from FR. Or maybe the basement lights need replacing? $2.99 + tax.

FR's bandwidth costs come to about $500/month. $6000/year. I've checked.

FR is popular with wingers, and its members are happy to be scammed. JR does appreciate it, and on ocassion invites Freepers out to Olive Garden for an elegant evening where they carefully divide the bill.

95. According to Rimjob...

Free Republic Monthly Budget. Once we get our monthly donations to the point where they will cover all of our expenses, we will not need to have fundraisers.

Est. Recurring Monthly Contributions $11,708

Monthly Expenses Bandwidth and Colocation $2,430
System Administation and Programming 7,000
Administrative and Taxes 13,500
Legal and Accounting 1,000
Bank Fees, Credit Card Fees, Processing Fees 900
Equip, Maintenance and Repairs 600
Office Expenses, Rents, Insurance, Telephone, ISP, Supplies, Misc. 2,500
Travel Expenses 1,200

29,130


$1200 a month for "travel"?

I can believe the $1,000 a month for legal though. Surprised it's not higher with all the Secret Service inquiries they must get with all the nut jobs posting there.

55. Freeperville uses a database? Who knew?

From the looks of their site (back when it still worked at all), I would have guessed they had a big wad of Post-It Notes and slave labor from Cambodia furiously type that in whenever anybody visited the site.

I got kicked out of her basement about 23 years ago. She holds Christian activist meetings there now. They talk about Jesus, a lot. I went over to drop off her medication that I have to pay for because she got kicked off her insurance for being too sick, and there they were. Sitting in my old apartment with a picture of George W. Bush next to the larger picture of Jesus, whining about the government and trying to pinch my cheeks and calling me a rapscallion.

Those beg-a-thons of his have been dragging out more and more to the point that I think he was looking at spending the rest of his days cashing those $10 checks that come trickling in and decided it was a good run of fleecing his flock.

70. You underestimate greed and selfishness.

Greed and selfishness are the root of their deliberate ignorance. For all their talk about taking from people who actually work they are simply greedy. They don't ask "Why are these people destitute and need help?" they don't wonder how we can end the poverty and thus the need for such social programs. They are just mad that "those people" are getting something.

When you base your worldview on greed and selfishness and completely leave out compassion donating isn't exactly a high priority.

The reason the beg-a-thons must be constant there and DU hits its donation goals quickly is because of that one key difference between us and them. We base our lives from a point of basic human compassion while they seem to be lacking in it entirely.

74. Two more great comments:

Ellery Schempp posts : I am curious. JR gets $350,000 a year in donations, plus $46,000 in veterans benefits from taxpayers. That's $1000/DAY. Where does the money go? $1000 a day pays for a LOT of servers and bandwidth. Begging for more money (needs $7k for a server?) while not accounting for the previous $$ smells like scam.
and
Michael J. Bradley Please get FR back up as soon as possible. Today, because I wasn't able to spend all my waking hours posting back and forth with like-"minded" people on Free Republic I inadvertently received some input from the real world and, oh God, learned something.

Check the Yahoo site:

This is the latest evidence that we need a fully privatized Internet. What is the likelihood that this outage is "just a hardware problem", you think? We've been hearing about how the Red Chinese are infiltrating our systems -- and I guarantee the Current Occupant of the White House is in
cahoots with them. Anybody really think FR is not on their hit list? Jim, I suggest you check the server logs for evidence of interlopers from China and/or Washington, D.C.


Hows that fully privatized FR working out for ya?

http://www.facebook.com/permalink.php?story_fbid=10151448063817801&id=141344792800

" Funny thing. Democratic Underground had a much more sophisticated forum than FreeRepublic 2013 on Day 1 in 2001 and has never had an extended outage more than a day or two. Their budget is less than Freep. I think I would ask Rimjob where all your money is going. It sounds like Freep is a couple rednecks trying to run a server with Windows 95."

emails, telegraphs, or carrier pigeons. of course, rather than rely on solid tech work, Jimmyjimbob is PRAYING they get back online real soon. Hopefully John can repair the IPX/SPX stack on their mighty Windows 95 "server" in time for the next weekly fund drive. Then MAYBE this time Jimmyjimjim can pull the trigger on that sweet Dell system he's had his eye on down at the Goodwill, because he's pretty sure it's specced to run Windows ME.

87. Rimjob stepped on the 10-base2 connection under his desk.

I think he bought a smoking 10-base2 "thicknet" LAN to host his servers. He just hasn't realized the slight downside to this topology: disconnecting one node disconnects all of them. And he wondered why he got such a deal on that 1987 junior college network gear.

83. I have a theory..

Someone at Anonymous flicked a booger and it landed on a key that accidentally brought down the TR-80 (Tandy) computer that functions as a server.

"Anonymous denies any involvement, but can't actually be sure. The group claims that they don't train staff in museums and therefore bears no responsibility for the unreliability of 1980-ish technologies."

Still working on the new system. Then he's got to figure a way to get the data off the old system and onto the new. Say's he's cobbling together a Frankenstein SCSI box out of our old servers to get the job done. Then he'll have to do a consistency test which takes hours. Could be up tomorrow afternoon if no more problems pop up.

1- the Koch bros and assorted fascist operative won't let that place die

2- it's really a worthwhile exhibit. Field anthropology 101 -
>observe genuine knuckle dragging racism. Just search for MLK on there.

>theocracy, dominionism and every other 'Murican Taliban variant from Catholic to Orthodox

>full on firearms fellatio- 'tree of liberty/blood of tyrants" and all that; by Gawd, they're the only thing standing between Real Americans and a Kenyan/Marxist/Muslim dictatorship!

>American Exceptionalism in all of it's full, unadulterated unashamed display.

Far more concentrated than Faux, more diverse than Stormfront and more searchable than the WSJ.

Sheer entertainment to see what the True Believers really believe.
