    Sorry for the vanity, but does anyone have anything on the current polls of Abscam man v. Irey? It almost seems like a blackout.

    So Isreal went to war over the kidnapped soldiers. Where are they now, and are they going to be released as part of the cease-fire? Or are they in Iran, or long dead? I haven't heard a word about them in weeks.

    Just wondering, besides going around FISA during the investigation of Aldrich Ames, did the Clinton Administration go around FISA during the investigation and deportation of Elian Gonzales?

    Greetings, fellow Freepers, lurkers, Patriots, and all USA-loving folks! This is the new media speaking, and we are growing faster than a pond full of guppies. The old media is dead—they just don’t know it yet. But they are starting to sense it, and are panicking. The genie is out of the bottle. The internet now has hundreds of millions of fact-checkers, lie detectors, and cool brainiacs in their pajamas, laughing our butts off at the lame attempts of the “journalism majors” on TV to spin things their way. The media wing of the democrat party is dying. CBS, ABC,...

    <p>For several years I have been tracking U.S. job losses and seeking to understand the causes. I have written enough columns about this subject to have caused angst among some inside-the-Beltway think-tankers.</p> <p>Two critics, Bruce Bartlett and Daniel T. Griswold, have yet to comprehend the argument they dispute. This is puzzling. Whereas international trade theory is very complex, my statement of the job loss problem, or more accurately, my posing of the question is very simple.</p>

    <p>As dozens of lawyers for poor defendants disrupted courts throughout Suffolk County yesterday by refusing to accept new clients until they're paid for past work, state lawmakers hastily approved $15.4 million in back payments to the court-appointed attorneys.</p> <p>However, the bill has not yet been signed by Governor Mitt Romney. And last night, leaders of Suffolk Lawyers for Justice, the 335-lawyer group that voted last week to refuse new cases, decided that lawyers would not return to courtrooms until Romney signs the bill.</p>

  • Steel Trap: How Subsidies and Protectionism Weaken the U.S. Steel Industry

    Cato Center ^ | 3/14/02 | Daniel Ikenson
    Trade Briefing Paper No. 14 March 1, 2002 Steel Trap:How Subsidies and Protectionism Weaken the U.S. Steel Industry by Daniel Ikenson Daniel Ikenson is a policy analyst at Cato's Center for Trade Policy Studies. Executive SummaryOn March 6, President Bush is expected to announce specific Section 201 measures to further protect the domestic steel industry from import competition. By any relevant economic measure, the costs of protection will far exceed the benefits, and any benefits accruing to steel firms from that protection will be fleeting. Section 201 relief for steel producers could invite WTO-legal retaliation against other U.S. export sectors, undermine...

    Washington Times ^ | 8/18/03 | Daniel T. Griswold
    <p>Whenever an expert touts a totally new theory, invention or miracle medicine, a healthy dose of skepticism is called for. The recent writings of Paul Craig Roberts fit the mold. He claims that two centuries of economic thought in support of free trade, dating back to Adam Smith and David Ricardo, have been overturned by new developments and his own unique insights. But reality is more straightforward, and far less ominous, than he depicts.</p>

    Happy 4th of July Have you ever wondered what happened to the 56 men who signed the Declaration of Independence? Five signers were captured by the British as traitors, and tortured before they died. Twelve had their homes ransacked and burned. Two lost their sons serving in the Revolutionary Army; another had two sons captured. Nine of the 56 fought and died from wounds or hardships of the Revolutionary War. They signed and they pledged their lives, their fortunes, and their sacred honor. What kind of men were they? Twenty-four were lawyers and jurists. Eleven were merchants, nine were farmers...

    I am not part of the fundraiser here. Just an ordinary American, who believes in individual Liberty, and Freedom. I guess I've been around here for about 5 years or so now. Time sure flies! When Jim Robinson started this site, it was because he was fed up with the liberal media, and how they would not let people worldwide know about the corruption of the Clinton Administration. A few of us, equally concerned, (with great luck) found it fast. In the early days, FR was a day-to-day operation, always on the brink of bankruptcy. Jim kept on, and we...

    Would you mind posting this story for me as someone who wishes to remain anonymous. "Someone I love was approached by a homosexual in the church, although he escaped. The lure was porn--pictures of women. A young man of lesser character might have hung around, and taken the bait. We teach our children not to let anyone touch them, but we don't teach them to avoid adults who show them pornography. This is probably the number one way perverts attract young boys. Pornography is titilating and exciting, and the young boy's defenses are down. Eventually, guilt sets in, and he...
