  • Trayvon Martin rallies planned to protest George Zimmerman verdict

    Close your eyes and pretend you’re watching an old movie under those eyelids starring Barak Obama, Valerie Jarrett, Michelle Obama, Eric Holder, Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton, Susan Rice, Juan Williams, NAACP, Black Panthers, Colin Powell, Calypso Louie, Congressional Black Caucus. Supporting cast includes all political folks who are on shaky ground. Add a few talk show hosts who are afraid to lose sponsors and keeping trying to push the theory that Trayvon was walking close to the buildings because it was raining and he didn’t want to get wet! Just a big mistake, says Sean Hannity! Yeah, Right? Sean also goes so far as to say he’s SURE that Trayvon would have grown up to be a good citizen if he had lived. What a kiss-up. Turn the radio off. The movie we’re being forced to watch unfold is an old Charlton Heston Classic series. I refuse to do anything but shrug.

  • Congratulations to Jim Robinson for His Political Sagacity Overwhelmingly Accurate

    I’d like to congratulate Jim, too. This elite site is one of a kind and I’ve enjoyed it for a very long time.Mi really wanted to belong. I was a Rick Perry supporter and then a Mitt Romney enthusiast. These two fine men have achieved more in their life time than any thousand men. The two don’t even agree with each other but I found enough strength in them to bring me to their causes. I don’t have enough in common with most of the members of FReeRepublic to continue. I wanted to leave with an understanding of that rather than in anger. Now that I see all the voter fraud being exposed, i think Governor Romney never had a shot no matter how many of you stayed home. I don’t see what anyone won allowing Obama to regain the White House. I’ve found a few places to go where I’ll be comfortable but there will never be another FReeRepublic. I wish all, well, most , peace.

    Your post has a familiar ring. “Hell no, we won’t go.”....and it’s ok because. Nobody thrust Romney on us. We had more people from every persuasion in our primaries than ever in history. Sarah Palin could have thrown her hat in and she didn’t do it. Instead she sat in the comfort of a tv studio and piously declared two of our distinguished candidates were involved in capital cronyism. She and her husband had it her way in South Carolina. Newt wasn’t really their guy, SHE was their guy, but they endorsed him based on anyone but the other guy. If an American citizen didn’t vote, there is no excuse. A former SEAL painted a target in Benghazi. No one came.We painted a target and people stayed home. I could throw up.. The kids stationed in Afghanistan needed us to cover their backs. They needed us to come out. You sit there giving excuses for those who failed them. . Mitt gave his all. He would have put our economy on track so those kids could have jobs when they get home. Paying attention to the creation of jobs is far more important than paying attention to the few who call themselves Gay. Mitt has five children and sixteen grandchildren. You think he SUPPORTS abortion, for God’s sake?? Mitt and Paul gave everything to this campaign and would have fought like hell to right our lost ship. You blame Romney for not “seriously including” your buddies. How sick is that? In the meanwhile, investigations into Fast and Furious and Benghazi will stall now. I don’t think I can stomach you “understanding” types anymore. You’re as bad as the 47%. What did the non voters achieve? What do they tell their kids?

    “I think they were supposed to be able to check the machines before voting began to make sure no votes had already been recorded.”

    I’m sure you’re right. I have to claim complete ignorance on this matter....maybe on a lot of matters.

    This seems a little innocuous, but I think it’s part of what I saw on PBS from Ohio.

    “Did somebody hack the machines?”

    Well, I don’t think PBS would broadcast it if it had that capacity. This was sophisticated technology that was explained as get out the vote equipment. It collected so much information about voters, it was unbelieveable plus it created almost a friendship between the volunteers and the voters. The volunteers knew everything about the voter, even special needs, so the voters in the neighborhoods trusted the campaign workers from Obama’s camp. There was never a doubt who they would all vote for. The apparatus had been in place since Obama’s first election....4 years. Romney couldn’t get any technology on the ground with volunteers until he won the nomination. A few months at most. As far as fixing the machines? They forcibly removed our court appointed poll watchers. Even though a judge ordered them back, anything could have happened in a short time they were gone.

    “No offense but I paid for my right to not vote in blood in 1970.”

    Yeah. Well. Everyone in my life did. My husband was awarded the Silver Star and Purple Heart that particular year. I have nephews in Afghanistan right now too. I appreciate everyone who voted to protect them.from this anti-military regime.

    Kevin, I watched a PBS special on the computer program they were using in Ohio for Obama a week before the election. It controlled their ground game. I tried to tell everyone about it before the election but everyone thought it was just a simple tracking app. I think this set-up even knew the color of someone’s eyes and who they were related to and lived by and shopped with and God knows what else. The beautiful young lady who was the director of that campaign operation was black and confident no one could come close to matching it. She showed how it worked and it had been in operation for four years...always improving. It scared me to death. When it looked like Romney might take Ohio, I didn’t give this thing another thought until. There is something insidious about the whole operation. It’s not illegal, just insidious. They were very proud of it.and claimed that the Republican Party was years behind in technology.

    “Barnhart is going to be penniless and in prison sooner or later. If you want to join her, just follow her directions here.”

    You’re absolutely right. I remember when this kind of activity started up in Las Vegas in the eighties. Talk radio egging them on. Bo Gritz, etc. protest meetings everywhere. Funny thing is, the IRS agents were sitting there in blue jeans right next to the protestors. A lot of ugly things happened in that movement and I wouldn’t suggest it to anyone.

    It’s happened to a lot of people. The credit bureaus, each one, have a wealth of knowledge on the subject on their individual websites. Also, the website of consumer advocate, Clark Howard,, has a lot of advice and you can ask questions of a professional. if you’re looking to consolidate everything, you have to find someone who can loan you the money. With bad credit, it’s not wise to do that. You end up working with loan sharks. Unfortunately, the only other solution is to do it through an attorney....a form of bankruptcy. If your daughter chooses not to pay anything, they’ll drive her nuts with collections for the next twenty years. The main thing is to get a plan, stick to it, and be patient. I would check out Clark Howard. Sometimes the creditor will entertain an offer just to be able to close the account.

    Hmmmm. I don’t agree with a thing you said. I tend to look at the man’s family, achievements, and contributions in life. I tend to be impressed with his business successes. being a leader, He would have called upon the captains of industry. I think he would have put the economy on the right track, rebuilt our reputation abroad by strengthening trade, established a great business climate for investors, and laid the foundation for good will across the country. Then, he probably would have turned it all over to the next president and he would have gone on to his next station in life. Someone might have looked and said, “Who was that masked man?” he would never have asked for a thing. If he received anything afterward, he would give it away.

    Certainly not very well. I guess Rubio couldn’t help Romney. Maybe no one could have.

    “Your plan is to put out vinegar, wait for flies. Brilliant.

    Oh I dare to think differently.”

    Nope. After this cycle, I don’t have a plan. You can think differently if you dare but we don’t have patriotic citizens like we once had. The numbers are finally coming in from the election and it looks like millions of evangelicals not only stayed home but millions actually voted for Obama at the polls. He also got fifty percent of the Catholic vote. Conservatism will never appeal to those people. I forgot that there are huge pockets of evangelicals even in my town who handout literature on how evil Mormons and Catholics are. Conservatism means nothing to them. Their members are all poor and get government subsidies. Your plan is as good as any. I’m just staying put where there are people like Mitt Romney.
