  • Lunatic, Left Wing Relatives on Thanksgiving.

    11/20/2012 1:10:36 PM PST · by albie · 180 replies
    My 89 year old Mother in law (a conservative) is spending Thanksgiving with me and my family. My wife has requested that her looney left wing grandchildren be allowed to visit with "Granny" on Saturday. They voted Obama and are in their 20's and are actually very nice people. However, I've made it clear that I can not tolerate Obama voters in my house. Nice or not, family or otherwise. I'm still on the fence because I do love my Mother in law. What do you think? Also, are there others with similar problems?
  • Virginia Voters

    I liked seeing the Indiana voter opinion question so much that I thought I'd throw in a thread to get input from Virginia. I worked the polls in Richmond from 6a-8a and the turnout was literally 10x's that of 2008, which I also worked! Conservatives were fired up and up beat! You could easily tell the difference between a Romney and Obama voter. And I would say the ration was 20 to 1 Romney.

    A family that lives 3 houses up from me just got word that their sweet little 8 year old daughter Emily has a brain tumor. Emily was diagnosed a few weeks ago with mono and had not been eating and was having difficulty keeping down liquids. Yesterday her Grandmother called an ambulance for Emily because of severe headachs, thought to be migraines. After a scan, a mass was discovered. Emily goes in for surgery this morning at 8:30. Please give a prayer for Emily and her family.
  • Shiller Warns Seven Years of Economic 'Bad Times' in Store for US

    09/22/2010 2:52:46 PM PDT · by albie · 10 replies
    Seven years of “bad times” may lie ahead for the U.S. economy as it recovers from the financial crisis that started in 2007, according to Robert Shiller, an economist at Yale University. Shiller made his estimate in a commentary two days ago. He drew the conclusion from the work of economists Carmen Reinhart and Vincent Reinhart in “After the Fall,” a paper presented at the Federal Reserve’s annual symposium last month. Shiller cited gross domestic product per capita and unemployment. The figures are compiled by the International Monetary Fund and the Labor Department, respectively, and the jobless rates are year-end...

    With so many conservative candidates running for election this fall, I'd like to get a list together of these people and ask my fellow Freepers to partake in the Power of Collective Prayer on a daily basis. There's a good deal of propaganda being heaved on Americans and we need to keep track of who the "good guys" and the "bad guys" are. Please donate a name of any local politician that you're confident is a conservative and will do the right thing when elected. There's no doubt that this election is the most important in our lifetime. It could...

    I have the American flag that was draped over my Father's casket when he was buried in Arlington Nat'l 5 years ago. WWll/Korea/Vietnam/Army/Master Sargeant. It's always kept neatly folded in the triangular shape that it was in when handed to my Mother. She gave it to me. Just above the garage door of my home I've placed 2 nails that are used to hang this flag every Flag Day, Veterans Day, Independence Day, Memorial Day etc. The folks in my neighborhood always notice it from it's size and have come to look forward to it on these days. I only...
  • Civil Rights Act of 1964 (Question)

    05/21/2010 11:32:56 AM PDT · by albie · 55 replies · 1,387+ views
    My 16 year old daughter has suddenly and with the most coincidental timing been asked by her history teacher to write a paper on the effect the "Civil Rights Act of 1964" has had on America today. I know what the teacher is looking for, but I want to be sure I teach my daughter the truth. I'm asking for bullet points on the effect this act really had on America. Your help would be most appreciated!
  • Public School's Version of a "Call To Freedom"

    I was just reading one of my daughters "history" books called, "Call to Freedom". (credit is given to "" so I knew this was going to spell trouble.) In a chapter called "The Great Society", the book brags about LBJ's accomplishments in poverty. Here's a quote..."Partly because of Johnson's Great Society, poverty in the US decreased. Overall unemployment levels stayed low and the percentage of Americans living below the poverty level dropped to about 12% by 1969. Americans' income levels rose more during the 1960's than they had during the prosperous years of the 1950's". There are chapters devoted to...

    RED FLAG TO FLY OVER WHITE HOUSE By Chuck Baldwin September 9, 2009 Lest anyone doubt the communist leanings of President Barack Obama, look no further than to his decision to hoist the Red Chinese flag (for the first time in history) over the South Lawn of the White House in Washington, D.C., on Sunday, September 20. According to China Daily, "Chinese associations in the United States had applied to hold a ceremony in front of the US President's residence to celebrate the 60th anniversary of the founding of PRC [People's Republic of China] . . .

Max Baucus' health-care bill got the cold shoulder from Republicans, but the Montana Democrat isn't making any friends on the (true) left of the political spectrum either. "The people of the United States deserve a lot better than this," Rep. Dennis Kucinich (D-Ohio) says of the Baucus plan. "Unless you have a public option there is no way that you can drive down the cost for health care because the insurance...

    So .. here is what Jimmy Carter, Bill Moyers, Hank Johnson, much of the Washington and New York press corps, Newsweek Magazine and the brilliant thinkers on the American left would have you believe of Americans right now: We would be more than willing to welcome cap-and-trade with open arms, even if we paid a thousand dollars or more extra every year for our energy use, if Barack Obama were only white. We would be dancing in the streets celebrating the dawning of government control of our health care if only Barack Obama were white. It would be just dandy...

    Public schools around the country have recieved their orders. Broadcast the president's message on September 8 and follow with a carefully worded "feel good" q&a period. Some schools have taken the initiative to simply say no. Others have taken the position that the speech WILL be shown to a "captive" audience during civics class, extended study, whatever. Then there's a 3rd position, which is the "option" to choose to stay or not. Supply a note to the school prior to the viewing and they will be excused to go to the library. This "option" is the Obama administrations preference. It...

    My 15 and 12 year old daughters attend public school. They are well versed in conservatism and understand the difference between right and wrong (conservatives vs. Obama administration). I called my daughters school about the Obama speech. They said they were recording it and are giving the kids the option to see it the following Friday. To me, it’s a testament to how the school views this administration. On the other hand, I’m finding it difficult to remove my kids from school for the day because it puts them in an awkward position. Not because they're friends are Obama fans....

As the latest WND-sponsored billboard went up in front of Las Vegas' Mandalay Bay Hotel, others are pitching in to demand proof of Barack Obama's eligibility for office with some bootleg versions of the message – often in slightly less prominent venues.

    My wife works in a conservative Christian Day School. She's an aid to another teacher who claims to be a conservative. They had an Easter Egg hunt last week for the 3 - 4 year olds. After the hunt, this woman instructed my wife to gather all the eggs and be sure that all the kids got an equal amount of candy. (you likely know where this is going) My wife didn't want to do this, but in the environment of excitement etc, felt she had no choice. No time for a healthy discussion of why this is soooo wrong...
