It has been removed from keywords as a spelling exercise for birthers.

If you can type it in, you can access the topic.

This will likely reduce overall traffic.

It’s not the only keyword to go. I think over half them did. FR might just be trying to reduce and prioritize traffic going into the election. Or there’s a massive conspiracy and JimRob has been replaced by an illegal alien.

Or I’m wrong on both counts.

It could be to reduce bandwidth use. Jim has posted some handy tips about it and may have added some tweaks. It’s meant to help us get through the slow loading problems until John gets the servers humming.

It’s still available. To check any Keyword just go to the Latest Articles page and replace the asterisk in the URL with the Keyword you want to check...

I guess my parents aren't telling me something then O.O!

If I'm registered to vote but I'm not a citizen, does that mean that I must vote straight ticket Dem now or is it more of a guideline thing?

Jim and John are reducing the draw on FR's database by cutting down the keyword list. It's part of trying to pin down why FR loads so slowly.

You are just now noticing it? It was pulled months ago. Don’t make a stink about it if you want to keep your posting privileges. I say this from experience.

Just to clear the record, it had not been removed until today. I used the keyword just yesterday.

Regardless, it is clear to me where the ‘management’ stands on Article II of the Constitution. That’s all I will say on the matter.

Probably had to do with speeding up loading during the recent overloading problems. The kw is still there, just the link is no longer in the list. Keyword: naturalborncitizen.

Don't worry. Just put your utility bill into it, and the voting machine will take care of the rest.

I am with both of you in a prayer for Rudy to be the AG....if he won't tamper with our constitutional rights.

But also would pray that some of the current cretins in power be brought some justice....

lets pray for Issa and Rudy to act on the players in the crony capitalism as enabled by Obama as his henchman.... I believe there are some hideous crimes specifically in the money wasted in "Green Energy"!

Wealthy Columbia Univ. donor: School told me Obama had 2.6 GPA

http://dailycaller.com/2012/11/02/wealthy-columbia-univ-donor-school-told-me-obama-had-2-6-gpa/

The shroud over President Barack Obama’s college records — recently spotlighted by Donald Trump’s $5 million challenge — is prompting Americans to share what they’ve got, and The Daily Caller is getting its share of leads, including one story that the president scored a GPA of only 2.6 at Columbia University.

The 2.6 grade can’t be confirmed, is contradicted by some evidence, and it doesn’t say anything about the courses, professors and associations Obama was immersed in during his two-year stay in Columbia.

But the source is credible, and he’s contributing to the collective effort by Americans to find out more about their president — who is a champion of a greater role for himself and other government officials in Americans’ personal lives, social norms and career opportunities.

The source for the 2.6 number is a successful Silicon Valley entrepreneur and a Columbia alumnus who maintains good ties with the university.

In 2004, after Obama’s successful speech at that year’s Democratic convention, a Columbia University official told him Barack Obama’s GPA, he explained to TheDC.

“This person told me that he [Obama] was a pre-law, poli-sci major, had a lot of incompletes, and as best could be determined after sorting through the incompletes, had a GPA of 2.6,” said the businessman, a former Marine Corps combat veteran.

__________________________________________________

"was a pre-law, poli-sci major, had a lot of incompletes"

I wonder if that was when he left for Pakistan or just his trademark laziness.

A 2.6 GPA is what choom will get you. It also explains why everything is above his pay grade.

A 2.6 GPA is what choom will get you.

Only if you're an imbecile and a pot smoker. Believe what you will, but the two do not automatically correlate. If they did I wouldn't have had a 4.0 GPA in college, and I wouldn't have been invited into the Honors Program, either.

[Yes, I was young. I wouldn't necessarily make the same choices now, but it's the truth. Like it or not - there is no need to lie, or scare people to get them not to do drugs. To do so just makes it that much harder to foster trust in those you wish to protect - like one's children, for instance. They will eventually discover that you're lying, and then they won't believe anything you've told them which is very dangerous indeed.]

On the bottom of the sidebar you will see ‘configure sidebar’. Tap it and it will go to ‘my page layout’. In the bottom section on left, you will see ‘popular keywords’. Block it. It really helped my page load must faster.i also blocked a few other things until Jim gets the system fixed..but blocking keywords helped the most.

"For what it is worth....like most, my FR connection was running very slow. I disabled my keyword function and it has been running fine ever since. No problems."

If that's the case, then it sounds like the database structure isn't desgined very well. At a mininum, needs perhaps either an index on each keyword and/or a seperate table for the keywords with a one to many relationship with the table containing the url links for the keywords.

Perhaps now that the Mombasa MF is on borrowed time, The SCOTUS will favor us with an acceptance of a case on appeal and tells us once and for all what a NBC is.

Perhaps now that Obama is on his way to being an embarrassing footnote in our history, Sheriff Joe's proof that the released "BC Copy" is a hoax will see the light of legal day.

Perhaps now that a certain unbarred Illinois Lawyer is temporarily unemployed, the authorities will find the courage to investigate his false Selective Service Registration ... or even the mysterious SS#.

Obama can wreak havoc over the next two months ... wonder what does the Mormon Milquetoast have in mind for a damage control plan? Get ready for two months of Obama's REVENGE

I have been listening to NPR all week, hoping for guidance in my election-day choice.

But they have been of no help. The commentators on that fair and balanced media outlet are evenly divided between supporters of Hugo Chavez, Che Guevara, and Fidel Castro. Any suggestions?

Guevara's dead, so he's a voter now, not a candidate.
Castro is out of office and not running.
Chavez, now there's a 'dynamic' fellow! Solid choice, but might become a voter (die of his cancer).
Have you considered Putin or a Muslim Brotherhood candidate?

I will have much more flexibility to consider this after my successful campaign for VFW Entertainment Chairman is concluded. OTOH, Hugo has offered me a Kennedy-brokered deal on cheap heating oil.

Technical Question.

Should I continue using Glass Wax on my crystal ball, or should I switch to Windex? Rain-X? Vinegar and Newsprint?

The darn thing was just so awfully cloudy on Monday night that I just couldn't get a good read. I humbly apologize if I misled any of my fellow freepers. I also wish I could say it was a good fight, but The Mormon Milquetoast couldn't fight his way out of a paper sack if he micturated in it first. His completely unecessary loss to the Mombasa MF disgraced us all.

According to L. Ron Hubbard, vinegar, water and newsprint.

Sorry, I don’t remember the title or date of the HCOPL, but it’s right there in green and white.

Give it a good layer of clear urethane. It'll be less likely to shatter when you throw it at the wall or floor. Windex thereafter.
