  • Chinese Martyrs Brigade take credit for downed plane - why has the MSM ignored this?

    03/12/2014 6:33:32 PM PDT · by King Kong McCoy ^ | 3-10-14 | Staff reporter
    “Make Jobs, Not Propaganda” President Obama’s income inequality campaign – the centerpiece of his effort to save vulnerable Democrats from the Obamacare disaster – is fast losing steam in the face of raw facts and political reality. The President wandered up to Connecticut the other day to sing the praises of a minimum wage increase with friendly Democratic governors who have moved to raise the minimum wage in their states. His refrain was familiar. “It’s time to give America a raise,” Obama said. “It’s not bad business to do right by your workers; it’s good business.” As usual, the president...

While little can be done to stop them, and it is probably best to ignore them, I find it much, much more fun to mock them. Sure, being passionate about an issue you care about is a good thing, but thread hijacking is annoying and, to be honest, turns off people who might otherwise agree with you. So, on to the mocking.

    BARABOO, Wis. - Police arrested a man Thursday accused of breaking into three Washington County homes and making himself at home by brewing coffee, eating meals and taking showers. Baraboo police arrested the 24-year-old man near downtown Baraboo after a 15-minute foot chase with police, said Lt. Rob Sinden. Police declined to identify the man, but he is accused of burglarizing homes in the towns of Kewaskum, Polk and Wayne between Feb. 2 and Sunday, sheriff's department Capt. Dale Schmidt said. The suspect had escaped from the Drug Abuse Correctional Center north of Oshkosh last week, he said. Sheriff Brian...

    Dear Mr. President, I never imagined a day would come when I would disavow a Republican President, but that day is here. With your selection of Harriet Miers today, you have betrayed your word, you have betrayed me and you have betrayed every social conservative who ever worked on your behalf. This was a historic opportunity for you to deliver on your campaign promises and finally give us a nominee in the vein of Antonin Scalia and Clarence Thomas. Instead you fumbled. We know Michael Luttig, Edith Hollan Jones, or Janice Rogers Brown are reliably conservative. We have no such...

    Many argue that communism will never be possible because of "human nature". The essence of this false argument is the belief that a communist society would consist of an all-powerful central government that would tell everybody what to do--and would therefore undermine the creative initiative of individuals and the search for happiness. This argument is based on two false assumptions: (1) It assumes that a communist society will look like the former Soviet Union, or the current China, North Korea, etc (ie: corrupt police states with a feudal-style ruling class) (2) It assumes that people will only work in...

    Comment A study of 100,000 pupils in 31 countries around the world has concluded that using computers makes kids dumb. Avoiding PCs in the classroom and at home improved the literacy and numeracy of the children studied. The UK's Royal Economic Society finds no ground for the correlation that politicans make between IT use and education. The authors, Thomas Fuchs and Ludger Woessmann of Munich University, used the PISA tests to measure the skills of 100,000 15 year-olds. When social factors were taken into account, PC literacy was no more valuable than ability to use a telephone or the internet,...

If Freepers simply MUST post that "Bush's fault", may I suggest that, after posting such, they then get up and place a dollar bill in a can. Mark it "Bush's Fault." Then at the next Freeathon, open the can and send the proceeds.

    Free Republic ^ | 3/1/04 | Admin Moderator
    This is just a reminder that before one posts an article, one should check to see if the article has been previously posted in order to avoid duplication. Duplication causes several problems. Just like the old Monty Python skit about spam, if the same thing is posted over and over, it can drown out other valid posts. It needlessly consumes system resources. It fragments discussion. In general, moderators will pull duplicate postings when we are alerted to them or when we notice them. This has the benefit of eliminating the "spam" effect and it helps keep discussion from being fragmented....
