  • I will be taking my leave of you all soon (vanity)

    14 August 2016 To: Jim Robinson and all of my treasured FR family ... I regret to say that the number of my posts and messages will be taking an abrupt downward turn in the next little while, I can't say in what measure or how soon, but like many of our fellow patriots, health issues have reared their ugly heads in my life, and I see only a limited number of exits approaching, all of them ending with my journey ceasing long before I had originally hoped. I won't go into the details of what's wrong with me, everyone...

    71 years ago, the crew of the B-29 Enola Gay under the command of Brigadier General Paul Tibbets, operating under General Curtis LeMay, dropped the first atomic bomb to be used in warfare on Hiroshima Japan. We all know (or should know) the story. Today's sob sisters and history revisionists all make the same whining and wailing excuses for why America should not have dropped the atomic bombs on Japan, but just like the radioactive dust those bombs produced, the opinions of such low lifes will also eventually dissipate into the insignificant categories of history. And God Bless President Harry...
  • Fabulous Fantastic Storytime a Halifax Pride first

    "Halifax drag queen Rouge Fatale says she hopes the event will become an annual tradition" For the first time in Halifax Pride's 29-year history, a drag queen sat down with children of all ages and read storybooks.

    I'm asking for prayer in behalf of my Uncle in Tennessee, he's 74 and has generally enjoyed great health, however a recent biopsy of a suspicious skin area near the right temple revealed an active melanoma, doctors have cut that away and awaiting pathology reports, they will also be examining the lymph nodes for any possible spread of the cancer as yet undetected.

    Donald J. Trump is still coming under fire from Hillary Clinton's campaign and the media, including National Public Radio (NPR), for using the term "schlonged" to describe her defeat in the 2008 Democratic presidential primary.

    Two federal agents operating under the umbrella of U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) are claiming that eight Syrian illegal aliens attempted to enter Texas from Mexico in the Laredo Sector. The federal agents spoke with Breitbart Texas on the condition of anonymity, however, a local president of the National Border Patrol Council (NBPC) confirmed that Laredo Border Patrol agents have been officially contacting the organization with concerns over reports from other federal agents about Syrians illegally entering the country in the Laredo Sector. The reports have caused a stir among the sector’s Border Patrol agents.

    I've been on FR since 2003. Hard to believe next March will be my 10th year here, assuming I don't get zotted for one reason or another, lol To that handful of detractors who would LIKE to think this is my opus, guess again suckers - I would never give you the satisfaction of it. Now that we have that out of the way, why this vanity? First of all, I'm posting this in News/Activism not because this is sourced from a network, newspaper, etc., but because I've noticed that nobody else worries about posting their vanities in the 'Personal/Blogger'...

    0bama for America ^ | 06 December 2011 | Jason Waskey
    Hello Fellow Obama Supporter, There's less than a year to go until Election Day 2012. That's time we have to spend building the kind of movement we need to win. Our hardest-fought battles have been waged to provide financial security to the middle class -- from strengthening consumer protections to passing health reform to the President's plan to create jobs and rebuild our economy. While Republicans in Congress have blocked nearly every part of this plan, President Obama has never stopped fighting for middle-class security. And he needs us to keep the pressure on. That's what we've been focused on...

    Business Insider - Clusterstock ^ | 19 Feb 2010 | John Carney
    The image of banks locking their doors to keep customers from making withdrawals during a bank run is what immediately came to mind when we heard that Citigroup was telling customers it has the right to prevent any withdrawals from checking accounts for seven days. "Effective April 1, 2010, we reserve the right to require (7) days advance notice before permitting a withdrawal from all checking accounts. While we do not currently exercise this right and have not exercised it in the past, we are required by law to notify you of this change," Citigroup said on statements received by...

    51 years ago this coming Wednesday, three rock n' roll pioneers were lost way too soon, Buddy Holly, J.P. Richardson aka 'The Big Bopper' and Ritchie Valens. I was only a kid but I knew something heartbreaking had occurred, and it was only later on that I began to fully appreciate the musical genius that was Buddy Holly. I came to love the music of that man, I tried to imagine the grief of Waylon Jennings, who gave his seat on that ill fated flight to J.P. Richardson, and the last words between him and Buddy, who said (paraphrased) "So...

    Merry Christmas! I'm taking some time off over the holidays and won't be posting as prolifically as usual (as some say "thank GAWD, Christmas is REAL!" lol) but I did want to extend my very best wishes to everyone, regardless of whether we always see eye-to-eye on the issues of the day. No matter what the 0bamunist regime and their thugs and lackeys do, we still live in the greatest Nation on the face of the Earth, and I still believe in 2 Chronicles 7:14, and I (like many of you) pray for America every day to be delivered out...

    The Republican Party, the Party of Reagan has been nearly smothered and suffocated by the RINO-virus which has spread more rapidly than any swine flu pandemic, the GOP has been infected from the top down, and IF it is to avoid the fate of the Bull Moose Party, the principles of Reagan conservatism must be re-established, the fair weather collaborators and Quislings (that means YOU Juan McCain and your butt buddy Lindsey 'Goober' Graham!) MUST be driven out and banished and if they join up with the traitorous 'Rats, so be it. Force them to show their true colors. The...

    He has received death threats regularly and was once asked by his pastor to change churches. For years he and his wife wouldn’t leave the house without bodyguards at their side. The pressure got to be so bad that the couple eventually stopped going out at all, unless it was absolutely necessary. But if you ask Judge George Greer about the experience, he’d tell you it was all in a day’s work. The 16-year veteran of the bench was the adjudicator tasked with hearing the highly publicized case of Terri Schiavo, the 41-year-old brain-damaged woman whose husband applied in 1998...

    Five Doves ^ | 2 December 2008 | John Tng
    Ted Porter was insightful regarding Rev 13:18 -- the 666 scripture (see link). Ted wrote: Why does this verse specify that “him that hath understanding” is required to count the number of the beast? Why does it say “Here is wisdom”? Why can’t just anyone count the name of the beast? Why can’t we just have a computer take names and find out which ones equal 666?" Note the requirements to solving the riddle: understanding, wisdom and counting. Ted is right. Pure counting alone seems too easy (the way Ted puts it, it takes zero wisdom). Now this whole business...
