    Free Republic | May 11, 2012 | by Lazamataz
    How do you take over Free Republic? You can't. You shouldn't even try, Recently, a friend came to me with what he perceived to be the failings of Free Republic. I wrote back: "....JR is really not interested in people advising him on how to run the forum. He's had success with his own direction.......Seriously man. Don't stress this so hard. It is what it is, and you have no power over other people/places/things. Hell, you don't even have power over YOURSELF. That's GOD'S power. Just suit up, show up, color in within the lines, and enjoy what you can...

    Culture Challenge of the Week: Being Christian It’s a story that’s been largely ignored by the mainstream press--perhaps because it challenges the politically correct storyline that it’s gay teens who are persecuted and bullied. Or perhaps it’s because the bully is a man welcomed at the White House—the creator of the LGBT video crusade against bullying, “It Gets Better.” On April 16, hundreds of teenage journalists gathered at a conference sponsored by The National Scholastic Press Association and the Journalism Education Association. Their speaker? Dan Savage, the sex columnist and gay advocate who conceived of the “It Gets Better”...

    Auntie Zeituni has written a book. Its called Tears of Abuse, on account of how tough shes had it. Have I read it? Of course not. Have you read her nephews best-seller Dreams from My Ghostwriter, I mean Father? No one has its sold millions of copies, but until two weeks ago, not a single reader got far enough into it to learn that Obama was a dog-eater with composite girlfriends. Anyway, I have the press release on Tears of Abuse, which describes Auntie Zeitunis journey to the United States where she faces the unthinkable; failing health and...

    The European Union is about to crack up. Its disintegration is now inevitable. This is the real meaning of recent elections in France and Greece. French voters decided to oust President Nicolas Sarkozy, choosing the Socialist Partys candidate Francois Hollande. The result was predictable, and in some ways deserved. The conservative incumbent came to power in 2007 promising economic reform, overhauling Frances bloated welfare state and cracking down on illegal immigrants. Instead, Mr. Sarkozy piled up record deficits, imposed massive tax hikes and oversaw the loss of Frances triple-A credit rating. The French economy became subservient to Germany, dependent upon...

    Today the newly emerged worldview of many scientists sets caution aside and moves into immediate use of the new molecular genetic techniques in food. Scientists who question this position are often seen by their peers as heretics.... in 2006, the USA Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved milk and meat from cloned cattle, pigs and goats for the human food chain without labelling; large biotechnology companies are already engaged in promoting transgenic livestock as a means of improving animals and their products for human consumption (Biotechnology Industry Organization, 2008);... the use of transgenic livestock in practical farming and in...

    Heres a joke I got from a friend in Alabama. Its somewhat similar to this gem about the difference between conservatives, liberals, and Texans. ========================================================You may have heard on the news about a southern California man put under 72-hour psychiatric observation when it was found he owned 100 guns and allegedly had (by rough estimate) 100,000 rounds of ammunition stored in his home. The house also featured a secret escape tunnel.My favorite quote from the dimwit television reporter: Wow! He has about a quarter million machine gun bullets. The headline referred to it as a massive weapons cache.By southern California...

    As I briefly mentioned in my recent article on the influence of the Linux desktop, with a new major Windows release just around the corner we are being treated to an onslaught of articles proclaiming the failings of Linux on the desktop. You'd think that such articles wouldn't be necessary if the Linux desktop had indeed failed. One recurring theme is the idea that Linux has terrible hardware support. The premise is always that Linux is impossibly difficult to install and that lots of hardware just doesn't work with Linux. The author almost always proclaims his or her love for...

    American Thinker ^ | May 11, 2012 | Rick Richman
    On May 7, Geoffrey Norman posted "Today's Laugh Line" at National Review Online -- a quote from a column by Mark Halperin in Time asserting Mitt Romney has "the luxury of an open schedule" allowing him to "spend every waking hour as a full-time candidate," while President Obama "is required to do his day job." It was even funnier if one looked at President Obama's May 7 schedule. Here was his schedule that day, in its entirety, with all events taking place in the Oval Office: 10:00 a.m. The President receives the Presidential Daily Briefing. 11:00 a.m. The President meets...

    NASA ^ | May 11, 2012 | (see photo credit)
    Explanation: The Super Moon wins, by just a little, when its apparent size is compared to the Sun in this ingenious composite picture. To make it, the Full Moon on May 6 was photographed with the same camera and telescope used to image the Sun (with a dense solar filter!) on the following day. Of course, on May 6 the Moon was at perigee, the closest point to Earth in its eliptical orbit, making it the largest Full Moon of 2012. Two weeks later, on May 20, the Moon will be near apogee, the most distant point in its orbit,...

    FREEPORT, Pa. - An Armstrong County library had to get police involved to get four overdue books returned from a 4-year-old girl. Freeport Area Library Board President Donna Michael said the books had been out since Oct. 19, or 240 days and $81.60 in fines. Michael said she had no choice but to get police involved after two phone calls, a postcard and three letters failed to get the books returned.

    "Love One Another" ". . . add to your . . . brotherly kindness love" —2 Peter 1:5, 7 Love is an indefinite thing to most of us; we don’t know what we mean when we talk about love. Love is the loftiest preference of one person for another, and spiritually Jesus demands that this sovereign preference be for Himself (see Luke 14:26). Initially, when “the love of God has been poured out in our hearts by the Holy Spirit” (Romans 5:5), it is easy to put Jesus first. But then we must practice the things mentioned in 2...

    WASHINGTON -- President Obama sent a warmed-over, five-point "to-do list" to Congress this week that he said will create jobs and spur growth. There was nothing new in any of the ideas. He's offered these same ideas before, but Congress rejected all of them. In a gimmicky performance before an audience at the State University of New York in Albany, Obama unveiled his plan on two large flat-screen television monitors in the form of a green Post-it Note with five unchecked boxes next to each proposal. It was a desperate, hastily slapped-together video show in the wake of last week's...

    The U.S. dodged another terrorist bullet when a would-be "underwear bomber" turned out to be a double agent. The news became public this week after rumors had circulated in April that Al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP), a Yemini-based group that is now the chief terrorist threat against the U.S., had been planning a spectacular attack to coincide with the one-year anniversary of the American raid that killed Osama bin Laden last May 2. At first, the White House and other administration sources played down the rumors, saying that there was no credible information that an attack was being planned....

MI5 recruited the agent for an operation in which the CIA planned to target the bomb-maker with a missile from an unmanned drone.

    WOUNDED soldiers or injured civilians in remote locations could benefit in the future from an injection that stabilises the heart following massive blood loss. The fluid is being developed and tested by Queensland scientist Professor Geoffrey Dobson, whose research has been inspired by the ability of animals like the hummingbird to slow their heart rate during hibernation. Prof Dobson, who is collaborating with the US Navy to develop the treatment, said it was essentially designed to save lives and buy crucial time before the wounded could be safely evacuated to hospital. "We've developed a whole new solution to actually resuscitate...
