    I've never seen so many vanities on FR. Ever. And most by newbies, who perhaps don't understand what FR is meant to be. FR has ceased to be a place to evaluate the published word, and has degenerated into a sophomoric chatroom. Jim -- can you please provide guidance on what you'd like to see FR become? Can you let us know your thoughts on vanities, and explain how you'll enforce your policy regarding vanities? I personally feel that if the ratio of vanities to discussion of the published word continues to increase, FR will become a common chatroom for...

    Once upon a time there was a young charismatic and eloquent young leader who decided his nation was in need of change and he was the one to implement it. The people were receptive and ready for a change. He spoke passionately when denouncing the existing system, and the media loved him. Nobody questioned what he believed in, or whom his friends were. He said he would help the poor and bring free medical care and education to all. He would bring justice and equality. He said, "I am for hope and change and I will bring you both. "...

    I just want to know, (really) after watching this, I know we all have our opnions. But doesn't it matter that this man has NO respect for our country? I don't really care for Hillary Clinton, but at least I know she LOVES our country and has respect for the men and woman who fought for this country. He DOESN'T. I have never been so scared in my life. Most people will probably say because BUSH was such a horrible president put our country in debt because of the war and John Mccain will do the same. I am telling...

  • Why the English Language is the Best International Language

    If you want to flame me, you can do so rightfully, as I am posting this from the viewpoint of a casual observer rather than an a knowledgeable linguist. But here I go: The easiest items to adjust for are nouns. You just plug in a noun in one language for another. Perhaps there are are languages with "easier" nouns than English but I don't know why or how. However, this is not the problem. The Romance languages have two difficulties. How to use the personal or impersonal "you" term. (In English it's left generic) It varies widely between cultures...

    as mentioned earlier, these 18 yr old druggies have a stronghold in the web 2.0 space. apparently they saw our digg thread and see their posts: "Freeper has temerity to suggest new series of tubes to fellow freepers. Hilarity ensues." " Cave safe, fire is scary! Do not WANT!!" "Right, armchair interneting will not help mcCain much." "They are just as ignorant and backward as the Muslims they hate so much...n/t" "did these people find FR in the first place? Do they think FR IS the internet?"

    A final agreement has been reached between African Press International (API) and Fox News Network (USA) on the dates to air the Michelle Obama tape arising from a discussion Mrs Obama had with the API two weeks ago. The show will take place any day/time from now, with a 15 minutes alert on when it is to take place. Other programmes will be interrupted. This is a precaution taken to avoid interference from any quarter. In the agreement, Fox News Network will broadcast 39 minutes of the 54 minutes long tape. The whole tape cannot be aired unedited due to...

    A poll was conducted back In June 2008, and it found that the number of Hillary supporters that were going to vote for Obama was 58%, with 28% going to vote for McCain. The rest were undecided. In September, another poll was conducted, and it found that things were unchanged for Obama. This poll found that the percentages were still 58% going to vote for Obama and 28% going to vote for for McCain, with the remainder still undecided. If the remainder ends up splitting evenly, that will give McCain 35% of Hillary supporters that will vote for him and...

    I just joined Barack Obama's campaign for president. Cost me five dollars, the minimum donation, to check on the stories I'd heard about how his credit card processing system is set to verify only the card number and expiration date, so I chipped in with a fake name and address. After they'd processed my donation, they kicked me over to a pre-loaded "Hey, friendo, I just joined Obama's Great Leap Forward" e-mail form, so I modified it some and spread the word. Like Betty Crocker, 'Bammy's money-funnel was smooth and easy. I'd read about Osama Bin Laden, "Adolphe" Hitler, and...

    We no longer hear about the greedy Oil speculators as the price is Spiraling into the Deck. What the commiecRats are not saying is that this proves that Supply and Demand works. The market is betting that there will be less oil needed as the future recession sets in around the World. This is also more proof that the World is fearing a Nodrillbama administration. The World knows that there will be reduced usage as industries collapse worldwide and they are right. The markets are hedging against a Black Whiteguilt Oblack administration w/a socialist congress. The trigger of this Market...

    If anyone can, please help me. I have some friends in Pittsburgh who are both liberal and conservative. We had been chatting about the woman there who said she was attacked and a "B" etched into her face. One particularly liberal friend is now saying that the McCain people PRESSURED the news media there to run the story about the woman. She has said this after I sent her the original article, and then sent the report that it was a hoax. I even commented how these "hoaxes" hurt us all, of both parties. But this woman INSISTS that now,...
  • McCain brings up LA Times video controversy

    Today McCain was being interviewed on 610wtvn radio in Columbus, Ohio (a very popular show and time slot). He actually brought up the story of the LA Times refusing to release the video tape showing Obama toasting P.L.O. members. He then went on to tie it into Ayers. It's refreshing to see McCain finally taking off the gloves!!
