    Whereas, being a pre-millenial freeper, do propose the following changes to The 2010 and subsequent FreeRepublic Lexicon (Lingo, Dictionary, Lore Handbook) Pic Rule - Unofficial, but strictly enforced rule that pictures of unpleasant liberal women must be accompanied by pictures of beautiful women; if beautiful women are mentioned a picture must follow (and inevitably controlled by Helen Thomas) (thanks NonLinear and dinasour). Specific rules follow: 1. If your post mentions Ann Coulter or Michelle Malkin, you must post a pic of her. Example: ......"Ann Coulter"=..."Michelle Malkin"= 2. Female equivalent to the Ann Coulter rule. The Bibi (Netanyahu) and Bill Sammon's...

    April 11, 2010 Richard Dawkins: I Will Arrest Pope Benedict XVI Marc Horne Atheist campaigner Richard Dawkins RICHARD DAWKINS, the atheist campaigner, is planning a legal ambush to have the Pope arrested during his state visit to Britain “for crimes against humanity”. Dawkins and Christopher Hitchens, the atheist author, have asked human rights lawyers to produce a case for charging Pope Benedict XVI over his alleged cover-up of sexual abuse in the Catholic church. The pair believe they can exploit the same legal principle used to arrest Augusto Pinochet, the late Chilean dictator, when he visited Britain in 1998. The...

    Meghan McCain spoke to students at the George Washington University on Thursday as Young America’s Foundation protesters criticized her stance on gay marriage and counter-protesters showed their support for the daughter of Arizona Senator and former presidential candidate John McCain. Meghan McCain, who calls herself a “progressive Republican,” implored Republicans to “stop being so stubborn and closed-minded.” Throughout the night, McCain was critical of right-wing pundits, telling the audience, “I’m not Ann Coulter, I’m not Glenn Beck … I’m not trying to get my own show on Fox … I’m adamantly against hate-mongering.”There is “no place for the nasty Laura...

    In another celebrity turn in California politics, Prince Frederic von Anhalt, the husband of actress Zsa Zsa Gabor, announced Tuesday that he's running for governor. Anhalt said in a news release that he'll file papers with California's Secretary of State, announcing his intention to run as a Liberal Independent in the California race. "We've had Irish-American, Armenian-American, and Austrian-American governors and now it's time for a German-American to lead the state," Anhalt said in a statement. Among his platforms, Anhalt said he wants to legalize marijuana and tax it, open borders to Mexico for workers and tax them, adjust fees...

    Right off the bat let me tell you about myself. My credentials – a recently retired black teacher of 40 years in the Hartford, Connecticut public school system. I was raised in a large inner city of Washington D.C. and educated in the public school system. I possess a Bachelors and Masters Degree and am a “people person” who loves teaching. I retired this past year with great disappointment and sadness for the public school system, the individual students, teachers and parents. The current education system is failing to do the job of educating our children. There are individual successes,...

  • Nader still fighting over alleged '04 conspiracy

    Machias, Maine (AP) -- Ralph Nader didn't have any luck in Washington, D.C., with a lawsuit alleging a conspiracy to keep him off the 2004 presidential ballot. So he's taking his case to Washington County, a sparsely populated locale at the nation's easternmost tip. The lawsuit five years after President George W. Bush beat Democrat John Kerry contends the Kerry campaign and Democratic leaders conspired to keep Nader off the ballot in Maine and more than a dozen other states. . . . There's no love lost between Nader and Democrats. Nader is loathed by many Democrats who believe his...

    One international leader was conspicuously absent at the 20 Year Anniversary of the Fall of the Berlin Wall today. Even the Russian President made it there. Barack Obama is seen on screens during a video message at the Brandenburg Gate in Berlin, Germany, Monday, Nov. 9, 2009, during the commemorations of the 20th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall on Nov.9, 1989. Even worse- Obama spoke about himself to the crowd: “Few would have seen on that day that… that their American ally would be led by a man of African descent.” And, of course, he did not...

    Originally, the New York Times reported on President Barack Obama’s visit to Dover AFB and the arrival of fallen serviceman by explaining that the White House wanted Obama to be seen as concerned and aware of the sacrifices made in America’s war policies: A small contingent of reporters and photographers accompanied Mr. Obama to Dover, where he arrived at 12:34 a.m. aboard Marine One. He returned to the South Lawn of the White House at 4:45 a.m. <…> The images and the sentiment of the president’s five-hour trip to Delaware were intended by the White House to convey to the...

    Los Angeles, CA (CNS) - Octomom Nadya Suleman has found a way to turn the spotlight back on her this Halloween. The controversial unemployed single mother dressed up as a pregnant nun and had her octuplets don red devil costumes earlier this week.She was all smiles for the camera while her 9-month-old octuplets were visibly restless, with some even photographed crying. Their trick or treat parade was completed by two big strollers draped in spider webs. Suleman, who has six other older kids, created a public uproar in January when she gave birth to her octuplets via in-vitro fertilization, while...

    Rule No. 1 for Being Taken Seriously: Don't post pictures of yourself on the Internet that are not safe for work (NSFW). Rule No. 2 for Being Taken Seriously: Don't whine and cry when people criticize you for posting NSFW photos. Meghan McCain doesn't know either one of these rules. But then, Meghan McCain doesn't know much of anything. McCain is obviously not the brightest bulb in the chandelier. This is a woman who, while appearing on Bill Maher's show, explained that she knew nothing about Ronald Reagan because "I wasn't born yet." (Paul Begala, no intellectual titan himself, quickly...

Eighteen months after the scandal that took down Eliot Spitzer, the 24-year-old wants to become a singer, a mother, an author -- anything but that girl. "Everyone likes an underdog story, and everyone likes a comeback," she said during an exclusive interview and fashion shoot with The Post. "I'm the poster child for redemption."

    The White House announced today that President Obama will deliver a "major speech" (yes, another one) on the country's current financial situation next Monday, September 14, at Federal Hall in New York--coincidentally, the one-year anniversary of the collapse of Lehman Brothers. The White House says the president will "discuss the aggressive steps the administration has taken to bring the economy back from the brink, the commitment to winding down the government's role in the financial sector and the actions the United States and the global community must take to prevent a crisis like this from ever happening again." I'm beginning...

    Hi everyone. I'm thinking about taking a breather from Free Republic for a little while. Not long, I'm sure. But, I just don't want it to interfere with my job, and I already had that happen once. I'm reading and posting much too much. I think a short sabbatical should help me break this bad habit.See you all soon .... NOT DURING WORK HOURS!
