Free Republic Still Down.

Been down since yesterday, 10:00 AM CST.

Question: How is Mr. Prez. Biz. Man Twittbot going to issue forth his declarations/proclamations from inside his tower if his tweeter account is hacked or his servers are down ?

Messenger Envoy ? Pony Express ?

2. No. But I'm sure they'd love to play it if they could @ X.



They'll be back up soon enough, I'm sure.

I really have no prob w/ FR, I rarely go there.

We live in a New Age, where ppl go where others are most like themselves. It's a product of tech advance ... long predicted.

BTW, do you still skydive or jump ?

Never have myself, knew several who did. Biggest risk taker I new, quit. Told me it scared him & risk, though small, had catastrophic consequences.

I was kind of surprised when he said it.

3. I went there a few years ago, but it was an Echo Chamber like DU


Somebody makes a Statement and EVERYBODY agrees, where's the fun in that?

I made a grand total of ONE premeditated free fall Parachute Jumps (with a Parachute I Packed) as part of the A-School Curriculum back in the day



Back then after you Graduated A-School, there was an Opportunity to go back for further Training and they would write you Jump Orders if you wished and you could get your Jump Wings. In the Mid 80's the Army Jump School at Ft Benning got into a "Turf War" with the Navy and said Lakehurst was not a Certified Jump School (No Shit Sherlock, its the PARACHUTE RIGGER School). The Army won that round and they stopped PARA-OPS at Lakehurst, They used to train Navy SEALS there but now they have to go through the Course at Benning

I think its a shame, but my physical fitness for jumping days are in the rear view mirror

4. As a civii, from long line of civii's I find it fascinating.

Never was good @ sports, too small, too blind, too deaf and several bouts w/ bronchial pneumonia as an infant. I was lucky it turned into asthma.

Also explains my gravitation toward adrenaline & vausio-dilaters. Powerful shots of Adrenaline saved my life several Xs as a kid.

Like to think I could have served as Submariner, or pilot had I had good vision.

In Viet Nam I would have been a Tunnel Rat.

. . .

Friend was chasing after young woman @ time. She was head of University Parachute Club then. Sexy, Blonde, Tight Jeans & also previous acquaintance/friend. Need I say more ?

. . .

Still Military History is still very much relevant.

So is Military politics.

5. Nowadays they have Military Units that do Cyber Warfare and such

My Bother-in-law was a Navy Sonar Tech, spent most of his time listening to the Ocean through Headphones

It ain't ALL Runnin' and Gunnin'
