    THERE is a fad that springs up now and then in America of considering it fashionable to deplore our flag as just a symbol. Well, that's absolutely right. It is a symbol. The only fault that I can find with the pseudointellectuals who therefore discount it is that they live by symbols and apparently aren't even aware of it. I would like to ask them a few questions. For example, why do they stop their cars when they see a red light at an intersection? It's just a symbol. The answer is obvious. The least unpleasant thing that could result...

    Congress Approves Mustang Slaughter PLEASE HELP, PLEASE PASS ON....................... Stealthily tucked within a much larger appropriations bill (HR 4818) while no one was watching, Congress approved measures this weekend to end 33 years of Federal protection for an America Treasure, our "Living Legends" - wild free-roaming horses and burros on public lands. This bill seems to have broadsided everyone, including many BLM personnel, who had drafted their own plans to handle the problem, and thought their plan would work. Since both House and Senate have already passed it, the only hope left is to get Bush not to sign it...

    In this mural, Lady Liberty cradles a dying soldier in her arms, remembering the sacrifices in life and death, made by so many to secure liberty for all. 284 faces of Crawford County, Ohio veterans were painted to look as though they were carved in the stone of the columns and back wall.

    I've been looking for an image, that I'm fairly sure was a 'FReeper original', made after the WTC attack. As a memorial, the image was of an eagle head...had the American flag 'super-imposed' over it...and at the bottom, it said,' Let's Roll'. Like I said, I believe it's a FReeper who did it, because I can remember the thread, and the FReeper had the flag 'backwards'. Then he 'fixed' it.

    Jeremy Forrester was born with a twisted body, a slow mind and a chronic, terminal illness that had been slowly killing him all his young life. Still, his parents had tried to give him as normal a life as possible and had sent him to St. Theresa's Elementary School. At the age of 12, Jeremy was only in second grade, seemingly unable to learn. His teacher, Doris Miller, often became exasperated with him. He would squirm in his seat, drool and make grunting noises. At other times, he spoke clearly and distinctly, as if a spot of light had penetrated ...

    Democrats bring in legal ringer 7.12 p.m. ET (027 GMT) November 14, 2000 By Anne Gearan, Associated Press TALLAHASSEE (AP) — Democrats imported a courtroom ringer Tuesday in the seesawing legal battle over Florida's decisive presidential votes. David Boies is a smooth litigator who won the government's antitrust case against Microsoft Corp. and went on to represent the music-swapping firm Napster as it fights to stay in business. Boies, with trademark flyaway hair and rumpled suit, appeared at the microphones in Tallahassee hours after he joined the case. He will argue any appeals in state court, Democratic officials said.

  • Volusia, The County That Couldn't Count

    Volusia, the county that couldn't count Malfeasance, lax oversight, poor training -- this Florida ballot fiasco has it all DELAND, Fla. -- Something very strange happened on election night to Deborah Tannenbaum, a Democratic Party official in Volusia County. At 10 p.m., she called the county Elections Department and learned that Al Gore was leading George W. Bush 83,000 votes to 62,000. But when she checked the county's Web site for an update half an hour later, she found a startling development: Gore's count had dropped by 16,000 votes, while an obscure Socialist candidate had picked up 10,000 -- all ...
  • Hundreds of Felons Still on Voting List in Arkansas

    11/12/2000 2:21:45 PM PST · by mommadooo3 · 12+ views
    Hundreds of felons still on voting list in Arkansas JEFF PORTER ARKANSAS DEMOCRAT-GAZETTE About 1,400 Arkansas felons who aren't supposed to cast ballots are registered to vote. Under Arkansas law, felons aren't allowed to vote until their sentences are complete, according to an attorney general's opinion issued this year. They must complete both prison and parole time before they can register. But comparing the state's voter-registration list -- about 1.6 million people -- and a list of felons still under their sentences -- about 21,000 -- shows that hundreds are still registered. How big a concern this is is open ...

    November 2000 Drive-Thru Voters You can say they have been "dumbed-down." You can say they have been misinformed. You can say they have been lied to and misled. But, my friends, you cannot say that American voters have not been warned. In fact: They have been warned repeatedly, constantly and fervently. They have been warned expertly, scholarly and biblically. They have been warned beforehand, during and afterward. They have been warned at morning, at noon and at night. They simply cannot be bothered. Most American voters do not want to give any more time or consideration to who and what ...

    What Ever Happened To America? A few days ago as I watched the bodies of the sailors who were killed aboard the U.S.S. Cole in Yemen being loaded on a plane, I wept. I wept for the mothers and fathers, the sisters and brothers, the children who will never know the solace of a heart to heart talk with dad, nor a fishing trip or football game or any of the other things which makes dads so special. I wept for the young wife who will never again know the warm comfort of her husband’s arms, and the husband and ...

Even though local scouting councils say they have not suffered any loss of financial support over the organization's controversial policy, they welcomed the donation as a sign of support for their mission and ideals. Members of the local gay community, on the other hand, called it ...

    Senate Plans Lame-Duck Session Updated 5:18 PM ET November 1, 2000 By ALAN FRAM, Associated Press Writer WASHINGTON (AP) - Mired in Congress' budget war with President Clinton, the Senate began sending its members home Wednesday for the impending elections and planned a lame-duck mid-November session to complete its work. After initially saying they would follow suit, House Republicans decided instead to stay in town at least until Friday. Six days before the election, they were leery of Democratic accusations that Congress was quitting and leaving the job undone. "We want to keep ourselves from falling into a trap," Rep. ...

    ANTI-CHRIST OF THE MONTH Where the Truth Lies It never fails. When deciding the new month's "winner" someone always presents himself as the obvious choice. They "step down" as it were. This month's scalawag has not only stepped down; he just might go all the way and drag down the entire country with him. Provided the American people are dumbed-down enough to actually elect him president. We have to wonder what makes people so incredibly blind to this bald-faced liar named Al Gore. For eight years we have had to put up with the weasely Bill Clinton. The effect has, ...

S. Army discovered it had been stretched so thin by basic "peacekeeping" commitments in the Balkans, it had to call out the reserves. The Pentagon still cleaves to its official definition of readiness: The ability to fight two Gulf Wars virtually simultaneously, on opposite sides of the globe. But last November, it was announced that three Army National Guard divisions were needed to join Regular Army units in the Balkans peacekeeping ...
