  • Does Your Area have a Shortage of Flu and H1N1 Vaccines? (Vanity and information gathering)

    I am just checking to see how the vaccines have been made available throughout the country. I have seen posts on the site saying that they are in short supply in some areas and other posters are saying there are no problems getting them. I would like it if you could tell us your state and what is the status of the vaccine availablilty in the area. I want to make sure that the vaccines have not been made a political football. That we havent yet turned into an African kleptocratcy.

    So I have been trying to rent an apartment in my home...and all I have answering the ads are boyfriends and girlfriends. No matter what social status, no matter what income level, I am seeing unmarried twenty, thirty and forty year old couples who want to live together.

    Thought you might laugh at this. Don't forget to vote in your local elections! The two most important events in all of history were the invention of beer and the invention of the wheel. The wheel was invented to get man to the beer. These were the foundation of modern civilization and together were the catalyst for the splitting of humanity into two distinct subgroups: Liberals and Conservatives. Once beer was discovered it required grain and that was the beginning of agriculture. Neither the glass bottle nor aluminum can was invented yet, so while our early human ancestors were sitting...

    DVD review: Primer Made for a measly $7,000, new filmaker Shane Carruth offers a lot of bang for the buck | by Andrew Coffin Most likely, you missed Primer when it was briefly in theaters last fall. The movie grossed just under $425,000 in limited release, which sounds a lot like a flop. However, considering that Primer (rated PG-13 for brief language) was made for about $7,000 in a Dallas, Texas, garage—and that it won the Grand Jury prize at Sundance—that number doesn't look so bad. Director/writer/cinematographer/editor/composer/producer/star Shane Carruth's film has been heralded for its economy, but the focus on...

    The Schiavo case is heartbreaking. I admire everyone who is involved in saving this woman from this unnecessary and early death. I do not believe she should die and I think her husband is a monster. My heart goes out to her parents. On the other hand, I am wondering, what can of worms are we opening here? The 1963 Civil Rights Act opened the door to the judicial activism we suffer from today. Most proponents saw the Civil Rights act as a good beginning in righting years of wrongs. But the unintended consequences have weakened our government. Roe v...

    I lost an old friend today. No, she didn't die. She screamed at me for my many-year metmorphisis from rad-liberal to conservative. She doesn't understand why I have changed, and is unable to listen because she is filled with bile, anger and hate. She wishes Bush evil and hates US policy. She has turned into a Michal Moore robot. We have not been close friends for many years but I did enjoy keeping in touch. Because of our thirty year history I have treated the friendship gingerly but with great fondness. Politics is hell.

    Everybody remembers the "Clinton-haters," the people who disliked our libidinous former chief executive so much they not only spread (mostly true) stories about his amorous exploits but spun rumors about various dark conspiracies in Arkansas and elsewhere. However, Clinton's enemies were pikers compared to today's crop of people who, while they may or may not hate President Bush, certainly seem to dislike him very, very much. I'm not referring here to people who merely disagree with Bush on one or a number of issues. It's easy to understand partisans getting upset over an opponent's policies, and certainly U.S. history is...

    Today my teenaged daughter and I were discussing the horrors that happened to Armstrong and Hensley.

The prayers, the ritual, the stylized costumes. These Islamofascists are making human sacrifices in the name of their god. Perhaps it is time to call the dead martyrs, and to realize that the Islamofascist's god is an angry and bloodthirsty god. Much blood will run in his name. Do...

Pupils under 16 who were taught to consider other forms of 'intimacy' such as oral sex were significantly less likely to engage in full intercourse, it was revealed. Britain's teenage pregnancy rate is the highest in Europe. In 2002 there were 39,286 teen pregnancies recorded. The government has spent more than £60 million to tackle the problem but so far...

    I was listening to a talk show host. He was thoughtful, wonderful and conservative. He sounded a bit like Walter Williams, but younger and without Williams humor. He did not say his name during the entire segment but he did talk about his military background. I was impressed and want to find out who he is. He was in the 4-5 time slot at WLOB in Maine. I have not been able to find a WLOB program guide. This is the Sunday Night at the FReepers Mystery!!
