    10 yrs. A decade. 1/10th of a century. Been a long time. I found this wonderful place exploring the Internet. Looking for info on the disgusting second administration of the Klintoons I followed a link on Drudge (Whitewater) and, bingo, there was FReeRepublic. I didn't lurk. I went right for it.....signed up 12/31/97. What a great ten years it has been. Billy's BJs, Y2K, 9/11, 2000 election, 2004 election, Swiftboats for Truth......what a fascinating ten years it has been. Looking forward to my next ten. Happy New Year everyone!

    The Minority Maker The clever GOP strategy for defeat in November. Thursday, April 13, 2006 12:01 a.m. EDT If Republicans lose control of Congress in November, they might want to look back at last Thursday as the day it was lost. That's when the big spenders among House Republicans blew up a deal between the leadership and rank-in-file to impose some modest spending discipline. Unlike the collapse of the immigration bill, this fiasco can't be blamed on Senate Democrats. This one is all about Republicans and their refusal to give up their power to spend money at will and pass...

    Newsweek has stepped in it again. Look what they publish in their overseas editions. Translation: The red text at the left just above the “Newsweek” logo says: “America forsaken.” The big white and yellow text says: “The Day America Died — The ideal of ‘freedom’ falls to the ground due to Bush continuing in office.”

    Special Report Touring the Al Gore Presidential Library and Museum By Leonard Albin Published 1/13/2005 12:08:26 AM Almost obscured by the climbing pink orchids and dense sub-tropical foliage in Boca Raton, Florida, a one-story, somber post-modern building of concrete and glass rises from the landscape. Though locals just refer to it affectionately as "that ugly damn place," the newly completed Al Gore Presidential Library and Museum is an important cultural site that should be part of everyone's Florida vacation -- even during the off-season. Just off I-95 in Palm Beach County, and convenient to the Pompano Beach Motel 6, this...

    Could all the things that some of his fellow Vietnam veterans are saying about John Kerry - that he faked his heroism, that he filmed his fake heroism, that he lied to get his Purple Hearts, that he lied about being in Cambodia - be true?

    Washington Prowler Blocking Dummy By The Prowler Published 8/3/2004 12:07:10 AM LOST FUMBLER If John Kerry loses Michigan, he will probably blame it on his joke writers, then Woody Hayes and the mighty Ohio State Buckeyes. But he only has himself to blame. He should have used that several-decade gap between his job in Vietnam and his job of running for president boning up on his knowledge of sports. The Prowler has documented several examples thus far, and over weekend Kerry really goofed up. To get his Ohio rallies up and rolling, Kerry used a set of jokes to open...

    Individual Glory What the Eurpean reaction towards Lance Armstrong's sixth Tour de France win really means. by Emily Berns 08/02/2004 12:00:00 AM Munich WITNESSING THE REACTION in Old Europe to champion cyclist Lance Armstrong's record-breaking sixth Tour de France win, I was reminded of a telling scene in Chariots of Fire, the Oscar-winning movie about the 1924 British Olympic team. In it, two Cambridge University dons confront Jewish student and runner Harold Abrahams (played by Ben Cross) and accuse him of adopting a professional attitude--of striving for individual success at the expense of esprit de corps. Abrahams's restrained but angry...

    Here’s what he really said By Howie Carr Recent Columns by Howie Carr Friday, July 30, 2004 If he really wanted to properly introduce himself to the American people last night, why didn't John Kerry [related, bio] use his trademark line, the one he has employed for so many years around here, whenever anyone calls him on anything? ``Do you know who I am?'' Instead - before the now famous balloon and f-bomb drop on CNN - we got the lame refrain, ``Help is on the way.'' Presumably, good help, which as John and the widow Heinz can tell you,...

    Cars, taxes, mansions: Pals share a special bond By Howie Carr Recent Columns by Howie Carr Wednesday, July 28, 2004 It's a terrible spectacle when the Beautiful People turn on one another like rabid pit bulls. But now we're told that it really doesn't matter that the widow Heinz slammed Ted Kennedy big-time, calling him a ``perfect bastard'' in a ``putrid'' party. Calling Kennedy a fat - er, perfect - bastard is ``water under the bridge,'' said a Heinz flack in a particularly unfortunate turn of phrase. The attack doesn't matter, the minion claimed, because it happened 30 years ago....

Nurse Ratchet, white courtesy phone." The meds cup is on the way ... perhaps a bit too late. Al Gore, speaking of the abuses at Abu Ghraib and other prisons in a recent speech at New York University, stated, "Where do we go to get our good name back?" The man who was Bill Clinton's VP for eight years didn't even snicker when he said this. Ah, yes, the good ol'...

    May 24, 2004 issue Copyright © 2004 The American Conservative http://amconmag.com/2004_05_24/taki.html American Gigolo By Taki So there’s always a first time. If John Kerry wins in November, he will be the premiere president of this great country of ours to be also a gigolo. The dictionary defines “gigolo” as a man supported by a woman in return for his sexual attentions and companionship. It might sound rough for John Kerry, but it’s right to the point. Let’s face it. The 44th president (maybe) is as close to a gigolo as I can think of, and I have known many. In...

    Friday, August 16, 2002 A culture of victory: Lessons of the Old Corps Posted: August 16, 2002 1:00 a.m. Eastern By Richard Botkin © 2002 WorldNetDaily.com Camp Pendleton is not quite hallowed or sacred ground. No real battles have been waged there, no blood other than in training accidents has been shed for freedom within its confines. Home to the First Marine Division and supporting elements, its 200,000 or so acres of coastal real estate allows for most facets of training which have become Marine Corps hallmarks: amphibious assaults, helicopter-borne raids, and good old-fashioned infantry combat. Constrained on its northern,...

    Dear kindhearted friends ... Now that the holiday season has passed, please look into your heart to help those in need. Enron executives in our very own country are living at or just below the seven-figure salary level ... right here in the land of plenty. And as if that weren't bad enough, they will be deprived of it as a result of the bankruptcy and current SEC investigation. But now, you can help! For only $20,835 a month, about $694.50 a day (that's less than the cost of a large-screen projection TV), you can help an Enron executive remain ...

    The South......Like it or we will kick your ass! Don't order filet mignon or pasta primavera at Waffle House. It's just a diner. They serve breakfast 24 hours a day. Let them cook something they know. If you confuse them, they'll kick your ass. Don't laugh at our Southern names. (Merleen, Bodie, Ovine, Luther, Ray, Tammy Lynn, Darla Beth, Inez, Billy Joe, Sissy, etc.) These people have all been known to kick ass. Don't order a bottle of pop of a can of soda down here. Down here it's called Coke. Nobody gives a flying damn whether it's Pepsi, RC, ...
