  • I'm Back From The Night Of Tornadoes And Needing Some Advice On An Inverter(VANITY)

    05/02/2011 7:56:59 AM PDT · by proudofthesouth · 30 replies
    Just wanted to say that I've missed y'all these past few days. Wednesday day and night was frightening here in northern Alabama. I was blessed that all I lost was a refrigerator full of food and 4 days 6.5 hours without power. There are others that have lost so much, much more. My beloved Alabama has been torn apart. But people have been WONDERFUL!!!!! Grocery stores and gas stations were open ASAP; restaurants rather than having to throw out their food were giving it away; others were having ice trucked in from out of state and were giving it away;...

  • Contacting McCain's Campaign? McCain Needs To Announce That He Will Support New Refineries (Vanity)

    09/13/2008 9:03:23 AM PDT · by proudofthesouth · 23 replies · 184+ views
    I don't want to tie up the hurricane thread with this vanity but does anyone know how to email or phone John McCain's upper campaign personnel? Hurricane Ike will affect the entire country in terms of fuel prices. McCain needs to go before the press NOW and announce that he WILL push through legislation authorizing new refineries NOT located in the GOM! (And pardon my language but to hell with the demonwits and the enviro wackos!) He needs to do it now and repeat it until Election Day. I will gladly write or phone him if someone can supply the...

  • Phone The White House and Demand A Special Session For Congress Over Drilling (Vanity)

    I want to urge all my fellow FReepers to phone the White House comments line at 202-456-1111 and leave a message for President Bush urging him to call a special session of Congress and force them to vote on off shore and ANWR drilling. If the Dems vote it down then McCain needs to be all over the media speaking about this. I'm so sick of "Let Them Eat Cake" Pelousi. Congress needs to be reminded that they (still) work for us.
  • State of Georgia Residency Requirements (Vanity)

    04/13/2008 1:51:11 PM PDT · by proudofthesouth · 5 replies · 85+ views
    I've looked at the State of Georgia website and can't find this info. I know FReepers can help me. :^) I need to know how a person establishes residency in Georgia. Let me tell you my story. I'm trying to verify this for a relative of mine. This relative lives less than a mile from Georgia but has always been a resident of Tennesee (drivers license, mortgage, property taxes, etc). However they have a post office box just on the other side of the state line in Georgia. They've been told that because the post office box is located in...
  • Need Proof of SB777 (Mandatory Teaching of Homosexuality in California) - Vanity

    03/02/2008 7:02:22 AM PST · by proudofthesouth · 10 replies · 111+ views
    I need a copy of SB777 with Schwartznegger's actual signature on it. This is the bill that makes it mandatory that homosexuality, bisexuality, transgender be taught in California public schools. I told my Mom about this yesterday and she doesn't believe that the government is making this mandatory and that Schwarznegger signed it into law. I need a copy with his signature on it (and even then she may not believe it!). Forget directing her to the internet. She wouldn't know how to use a computer (much less a cell phone) to save her life. Heck, I even need to...

    Is it possible to sue both President Bush and Congress over illegals? This is something I've been wondering about for a long, long time. I know there are FReepers who are legal and constitutional scholars and experts on this matter. Is it or would it be possible to get some sort of class action lawsuit going against President Bush and Congress to get them to inforce our immigration laws and to deport ALL illegals?

    With all the bad news coming out of California I thought a frivolous topic might be in order. What is your favorite or least favorite of the new television season? I have two shows that I look forward to each week: The Big Bang Theory (Mondays on CBS) and Samantha Who with Christina Applegate (Mondays on ABC) I have an extremely dry sense of humor and both of these shows just crack me up (especially Big Bang Theory).

    JFPO ^ | February 22, 2007 | Jews For the Preservation of Firearms
    In August of 2006, we warned our readership about the coming North American Union, a plan to merge Canada, Mexico and the US into a single economic and political entity a la the European Union. You can read our alert, "Another Back Door for Gun Control" here: At that time, the planned NAU was (supposedly) still a theory, one new harebrained scheme among so many others proposed by the government elite safely ensconced in their ivory towers. Disturbingly, that no longer appears to be the case. According to a recent article in the New American ( or

  • Estates Aren't Protected Under Alabama Law - Need FReeper Help/Advice

    01/07/2007 8:10:18 AM PST · by proudofthesouth · 56 replies · 1,822+ views
    I've discovered a "missing link" in Alabama's state law regarding estates. It turns out that step families or adults who live together in a home that only one of the adults own have no estate rights should one of the adults die. I spoke to the my local state legislative office last Fall (prior to the elections) and they were surprised that this loophole exists. Here is the body of the letter that I emailed to them explaining my particular situation: My elderly mother lives in my late Stepfather’s house. (It is a large 3 bedroom, 2 bath home and...

    I need help and advice from my fellow FReepers. I just found out that an Islamic Education Center (Alabama Islamic Center to be precise) has opened about a block from my home. I'm not in the least bit happy about this and want to see them GONE! It is located in a commercially zoned area. BTW, the location of this place isn't more than a few miles from an Army base. Other than phoning my city councilman and protesting its existence, any suggestions on what can be done to get them to close their doors?
  • Project Runway Thread

    Project Runway has a two part conclusion for this season starting tonight. I've been wanting Laura to win since the beginning. However, I'm watching the reruns of the show where the designers have to choose a dog and design an outfit for the dog and the model. Gasp! Laura isn't a dog person and thats a point against her in my book. I can't believe it but Jeffrey (who I think is a complete a$$hole) has scored a point with me cause he choose the Corgi dog to design for and my beloved Scruffy is a Corgi mix. I'm extremely...

  • When Did "And" Become Part of Dates and Numbers? (Vanity)

    07/16/2006 7:57:39 AM PDT · by proudofthesouth · 35 replies · 493+ views
    Something that I've noticed alot recently is the use of the word "and" when speaking dates and numbers. Examples: 1. Two Thousand AND Six (2006) 2. One Hundred AND Ninety Five (195) 3. The address is Three Hundred AND Seven (307) ------ Street 4. The temperature in ------ is One Hundred AND Two (102) degrees. 5. The driver qualified at One Hundred AND Eighty Six (186) miles per hour. I've noticed news, weather and sportscasters all using the "and" word with numbers. When I went to school back in the 60's and 70's, my classmates and I were reprimanded when...

    I heard about the following on Fox News today and could hardly believe it. Thought fellow Freepers would be interested in this. After all, what starts in the western part of the U.S. usually heads eastward. In 1919, Oregon was the first state to tax gasoline. This fall, the state will launch the nation's first high-tech experiment to tax drivers for the miles they travel rather than the gas they buy. The program is the first step in a long-term plan to replace the state's gasoline tax, which pays for about 40 percent of Oregon 's road projects. As in...
