    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, 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...

    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...

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."

At her request, Heeb photographed Barr wearing the infamous Hitler moustache and a swastika, holding and preparing to take a bite of what the article refers to as “burnt Jew cookies.” The shocking photos and interview are the first time the comedian has been seen after a “self-imposed” exile. The article describes Barr – who is Jewish – as nailing the “Fuehrer’s facial expressions with twisted glee.

    Memo to the White House: Not only was flying a Presidential jet for a photo-op Monday over downtown Manhattan in bad taste – it was unnecessary. Anyone in the White House ever hear of Photoshop? You'd think the administration would've been tech-savvy enough to realize the merits of the computer software program – what with its constant Internet spin doctoring and the President's notorious BlackBerry infatuation. The cost of flying one of Obama's official planes – a pimped-out Boeing 747 – along with a F-16 jet over the city cost upwards of $300,000 in taxpayer dollars. In comparison, the latest...

I had my stuff there.'” Asked if the Palin was lying about him, Johnston simply said: “Yes.” Palin...

In both cases people believe in fairytales that just aren't true. They have no factual support. In both cases people believe "faith" should substitute for facts, like with Obama for instance, and Bush for that matter, and "going to heaven" for instance, and an "ever-burning hell" for that matter. In both cases you can't say what you think. In both cases you have to be "politically correct." In...

In the history books (I'm a border Gen-Xer/Boomer), I vividly remember being taught that the Vietnam-era anti-war activists was a 60's phenomenon, and based on how the books assembled the timeline, the 60's were an isolated period in our nation's history.

    So you dumped my post on baseball players being wimps. But the article had more to do with baseball than just the fact that they cry about the rain and their little outfits get wet. It also had to do with fans and taxpayers. Do you oppose those groups also? Where did my original post go? Or do you just dump what you do not agree with? You would not be perhaps fans of one of the two teams playing?
  • Bob Barr relishes spoiler role

    Sunday, October 26, 2008 Cincinnati — The campaign plane touches down and John McCain emerges to the booming chorus of “Eye of the Tiger” and the raucous cheers of 3,000 supporters. TV cameras record every “Joe the Plumber”-referencing moment by the Republican presidential nominee, whose airport rally will dominate local newscasts. At the same time, Bob Barr is making his own campaign appearance a few miles away. The Libertarian nominee for president from Cobb County is clearly outmanned — about 200 people have shown up for his speech at the University of Cincinnati student center. And outspent — his campaign...

    I just want to say that there are too many stories on the blogosphere that would destroy Obama's chances of winning. One of them has to be true and one of them has to give... My question is which one will it be and when will it happen.. -Ed Hale is said to have 3 certified Kenyan Birth Certificates of Barrack Obama -There are now 4 court cases in 4 different states challenging the Obama campaign to produce documentation -There is a supposed taped call of Michelle Obama threatening African International. -There is a supposed "whitey" tape out there of...

    Libs all across the internet are calling for his head after November 4th, why doesn't the McCain camp ask Joe to do this? I know it will be temporary, but it controls the news cycle for a few days, gives the Senate back to the Republicans(big slap in the face to Hairy Reed) and it gives Joe the last word before Hairy knees him in the groin Nov. 5th. If McCain doesn't get the job done tonight, hit em with it tomorrow!
  • Keyes calls mortgage bailout 'socialistic'

    America's Revival ^ | September 25, 2008 | Ambassador Dr. Alan Keyes
    Former Reagan diplomat Alan Keyes commented Sept. 23 on the federal government's bailout of mortgage lenders Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. The former Assistant Secretary of State, currently running for president as an independent, said the bailout plan as proposed by the Bush administration would effectively transform our nation into "a socialist society." The following is the text of Keyes' statement: What I have to say about the bailout is that, with a concrete proposal on the table, it becomes much more obvious what is actually going on right now, and I think that we have to confront it. And...

    Christians - at least C of E members - may agree. The Church's website assures us there is nothing in natural selection that "contradicts Christian teaching". I beg to differ: Christianity demands a rational being capable of moral choices. It can accept that such a being may take time to evolve and share ancestry with chimpanzees. It can even accept that the being might not take a human form, though I'm not sure what that does to the stuff about "made in the image of God". But unless something like us comes along eventually, and unless things are designed for...
