  • Greed and Debt: The True Story of Mitt Romney and Bain Capital

    The great criticism of Mitt Romney, from both sides of the aisle, has always been that he doesn't stand for anything. He's a flip-flopper, they say, a lightweight, a cardboard opportunist who'll say anything to get elected. The critics couldn't be more wrong. Mitt Romney is no tissue-paper man. He's closer to being a revolutionary, a backward-world version of Che or Trotsky, with tweezed nostrils instead of a beard, a half-Windsor instead of a leather jerkin. His legendary flip-flops aren't the lies of a bumbling opportunist – they're the confident prevarications of a man untroubled by misleading the nonbeliever in...

    Here is a video well worth watching. It's William Black, former lead prosecutor in the savings and loan crisis during the Reagan/Bush years, describing the background of the current financial crisis and the need for prosecution of those responsible in our banking and financial fields. Strangely enough, he's speaking at the Occupy LA site. In case the video is not viewable in this post, click the link below--well worth spending 15 minutes to watch it: LINKAfter watching this video, I think there is little that any of us here would disagree with. So my questions to all of us on...

    A non-violent protest at UC Davis turned chaotic Friday afternoon as police pepper-sprayed a group of students sitting on the ground. Videos shot at the scene show a policeman walking up to the protesters, pulling out his can of pepper spray to display to the crowd, and liberally sweeping the protesters with the stinging substance. Many students had their heads down, but at least one demonstrator was hit in the face. Other officers then followed suit, spraying many of the Occupiers who appeared to be sitting in a circle with their arms linked. By midday Saturday, videos of the showdown...

    HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) - A New Jersey blogger facing charges in two states for allegedly making threats against lawmakers and judges was trained by the FBI on how to be deliberately provocative, his attorney said Tuesday. Hal Turner worked for the FBI from 2002 to 2007 as an "agent provocateur" and was taught by the agency "what he could say that wouldn't be crossing the line," defense attorney Michael Orozco said.

    PHOENIX (AP) - About a dozen people carrying guns, including one with a military-style rifle, milled among protesters outside the convention center where President Barack Obama was giving a speech Monday—the latest incidents in which protesters have openly displayed firearms near the president. Gun-rights advocates say they're exercising their constitutional right to bear arms and protest, while those who argue for more gun control say it could be a disaster waiting to happen.

    An Open Letter to Florida Governor Jeb Bush 3/19/2005Governor Bush: The Terri Schiavo Case is Your “Birmingam Jail” Moment Dear Governor Bush: As I write these words Saturday morning, Terri Schiavo is enduring her first full day without food or water. In the next two days, the effects of dehydration will begin; after that, her body will start to waste in the prolonged march to the end of her life, now mandated by order of a renegade judge in your state. And while I write, members of the U.S. House here in Washington speak with their lawyers, exploring all legal...
  • FREE REPUBLIC HELP NEEDED: Is Elian Being Drugged???

    FREE REPUBLICANS WITH PHOTO ENHANCEMENT NEEDED: Like many of you this morning, I have been watching the aerial photo of Juan Gonzalez carrying Elian into the "compound" at Andrews AFB for the "reunion." While my wife and I were watching, we noticed that, as he was being carried in, the video showed Elian's legs were dangling limply while he was in his father's arms, but --MORE IMPORTANT--we saw what we believed to be some kind of white-colored bag or other type of covering over Elian's head. This story is still breaking, and the photo of the INS goon with the ...

    Original | 09/08/99 | Eric Gagnon
    Is it just me, or is Rush seeming to be more and more irrelevant with every new day? We've got new Waco revelations breaking out on the Internet every day, evidence of massive corruption with loans to Russia, a military buildup in China against Taiwan, yet Rush wastes the first 45 minutes of his show today on a five day-old soccer story and a reprise of his stupid, stupid, soccer PSA's... Where's the latest on Waco? Where's the Mike McNulty interview? Why, oh why, are we talking about soccer???? I love you, man, but you need to put some more ...

    Waco, and People Like Us Waco, and People Like Us By Eric Gagnon Do you know what happened today? I bet you do. On this day in 1775, as most of us learned in school, a small band of frightened, confused farmers and townspeople, armed with rifles and muskets, struck the first blow against the occupying British troops in Lexington and Concord, Massachusetts, sparking the revolution which created this country. On this day in 1993, 218 years later, and quite by accident, occupiers of the very same government created by the wise men bold enough to inspire the seditious ...

    Advice to Y2K Doom-and-Gloomers on FR: Get Real! I've been lurking here on FR for a couple of years now--and enjoying it tremendously. But lately, I've been seeing quite a few Y2K-related postings here, made by a small coterie of true doom-and-gloomers. These postings follow a familiar pattern: One of the group finds an article somewhere, which may or may not be reporting some bad Y2K news. Then, one by one, the true believers chime in: "This should FINALLY convince all you stupid fools that the world is coming to an END!!!" "If you don't believe as we say ...
