    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...

    Count Barbra Streisand among the many victims of the global financial meltdown. Internal Revenue Service records show that the Hollywood star’s charitable foundation saw its investment portfolio take a whopping $1.3 million hit as a result of the Wall Street collapse.

    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...
  • On this date in 1959 ... Buddy Holly was still with us.

    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!)

    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...

    She grew up in a large, athletic, Catholic family, so it's no surprise Sister Mary Jo Sobieck has acclimated herself so easily into the Marian Catholic High School community. Sobieck is one of the 16 Dominican sisters who operate Marian Catholic, and she's taken a spiritual and educational journey to Chicago Heights. It's her first year at Marian teaching theology to sophomores and juniors, and she's also an assistant coach for the boys varsity volleyball team. "I love teenagers," she said. "The kids here are great, and there are all the activities.

    We commonly think of waffles as something for breakfast with butter and syrup or for dessert with fresh berries and cream; but a waffle is equally good as a quick bread to serve with a luncheon or supper salad. The waffle iron uses minimal energy, it's fast and fun.

    GREELEY, Colo. - Republican U.S. Rep. Marilyn Musgrave's re-election campaign was already heated, and it just got smelly as well: Her staff accused a Democratic activist Thursday of leaving an envelope full of dog feces at Musgrave's Greeley office. Musgrave spokesman Shaun Kenney said someone stuffed the envelope through the mail slot in the door on May 31 and then sped away in a car. Kenney said most of the preprinted return address was blacked out, but staffers used the nine-digit ZIP code to trace it to Kathleen Ensz, a Weld County Democratic volunteer. Ensz told The Associated Press she...

    WASHINGTON - A police officer's testimony can make or break a criminal case when it goes to trial. WTOP Radio has learned of a secret list that makes it even more difficult to put criminals behind bars. In D.C. it's called the Lewis List, but sources tell WTOP similar lists exist in almost every jurisdiction. It's a computerized list, kept by prosecutors, of police officers under investigation -- officers prosecutors knew will have their credibility challenged if they testify.
