    Top Ten Most Dishonorable Jobs in America While it may be appropriate to question the order in which the Top Ten Most Dishonorable Jobs in America are listed in this article, it cannot be disputed that they are in fact, dishonorable. To wit: 1. Democrat – at first glance is might seem to be a stretch to have democrats listed as the most dishonorable profession in America until one understands that is the democrats that facilitate, promote, support, fund, encourage and conspire with all the other groups to destroy life and liberty in America. All democrats support the “right” to...

    Found out about this liberal group today via email from a friend. They are badgering this woman I know that is widdowed at age 50 and has a few bucks lying around. They're asking for 10 grand. Their website seems to babble on about the Koch brothers specifically and " the environment" in general. Oh, and they're telling the widow its "her last chance" to get matching funds contributed. Blood suckers, no doubt. I replied to all in the email I received (telling everyoneto AVOID at ALL costs) so I'll be getting some nasty replies. Does anyone have any details...

    I was thinking about the democrats and how they had to make a "statement" by pushing Obama on their constituents and America in 2008. I’m sure liberals in general, and democrats specifically, didn’t realize in the months leading up to 2008 that there was a strong possibility that if and when Obama was elected that it would lead to where we are today. And where are we today? It is definitely bittersweet, but it gives me great pleasure to say this: when Mitt Romney wins the 2012 election and then wins a second term, it will mean the democrats will...

    It recently occurred to me that environmentalists, as we know them today, are the Ultimate Hoarders. They have a deep-seated need to try to be caretakers of all they see, as well as that which cannot be seen. Typically liberal, it seems that environmentalists have a fear of running out of, well, everything, Hoarding is a pathological disorder that reflexively demands the inflicted cling to any specific thing they think that at some point they *might* need. This can include items they may not even care about, as well as things that are abundant and worthless. It doesn’t matter to...

In naming 3 things he would like to ask former President George Bush, he said (paraphrasing) "did the President consider that when going into Iraq and removing a murderous dictator that he would unleash unrelenting terrorism where people would be suicide-bombing restaraunts and movie theaters?"

So after each of the final five contestants sang one Neil Diamond song, Jackson zipped through his appraisals, offering a few terse words for each before kicking it to a visibly flustered Abdul....

Mayors, commissioners and even congressmen would all fight to have Beary standing beside them in a campaign ad. No more. Beary has essentially turned himself into a punch line.

    Have Conservatives Lost Judges' Fight? by Robert B. Bluey It was inevitable: President Bush's conservative judicial nominees, sensing gridlock on Capitol Hill with Democrats now in charge, have abandoned their quest to serve on the federal judiciary. At this point, four nominees -- Terrence Boyle, William Haynes, William G. Myers III and Michael Wallace -- asked the White House to withdraw their nominations. What does this mean? After six years of GOP control, it will be extremely difficult to confirm conservative judges. It's not a fight I'm ready to concede, but confirmation won't be easy for anyone who's not a...

Not reported was whether or not young Nelson has bailed out yet.

    Party Without A Conscience By David Horowitz | December 11, 2000 JUST AFTER THE SUPREME COURT stopped the vote count and effectively delivered the presidency to George W. Bush, an African-American Democrat from Baltimore named Elijah Cummings summed things up for the losing side: “I just find it incredible. It shocks the conscience. Scores of African-Americans and Jews and so many other people have been deprived of their vote being counted. You want to believe that the courts are not politicized but I think the American people have got to begin to wonder what’s going on here.” The fragile...

    Strike up the band for another FSU letdown David Whitley RALEIGH, N.C. -- Florida State had a new band but an old motto Thursday night. You can't run, so you can't hide. And now, FSU's season is officially going nowhere. How bad is FSU's ground game? Let's just say if your car ran as poorly as the Noles', you'd gladly abandon it on the side of the road. ... Remember when FSU used to take going 5-0 for granted? ... Had the Seminoles really figured things out when they blew out Rice? Or were they the flawed team that lost...

    Our position: Government owes Hawthorne Village's poor better housing. Posted July 31, 2006 It's shameful that the residents of Hawthorne Village in South Apopka have had to endure such squalor. So bad are the complex's rats, rot and ramshackle condition that many residents there actually are welcoming plans to tear the government-subsidized property down. But what's to come may prove worse for them. They could become homeless. Government's outrageous neglect of Hawthorne Village since it was built in the early '80s is about to be eclipsed by its pitiful refusal to financially assist its residents as they relocate to new...

    TAVARES -- A judge abruptly scrapped jury selection for the trial of John Couey, deciding Thursday that prospective jurors in Lake County knew too much about the abduction, rape and slaying of 9-year-old Jessica Marie Lunsford to consider evidence and decide the case fairly. Members of the thinning jury pool whooped and high-fived in the courtroom after Circuit Judge Richard Howard's announcement. Howard cited extensive news coverage of Jessica's slaying in Citrus County, which prompted Florida to toughen laws for sex offenders. Snip... Those 58 people had said jury service wouldn't cause undue family or financial hardships and that they...

    Question for FReepers: What are the ramifications and actions that can be taken against a former H.A. president who has written checks to herself totaling over $15,000? What seems odd is that the local sheriff in Orlando is telling the present H.A. board that they must gather evidence by conducting interviews with the former H.A. board members. Not only that, the cops say we have only 2 weeks to do so. This is grand larceny, as I understand it, and a felony. Anyone know from experience what the deal is in FL?

Banners don't win championships, players do Tradition is a valuable thing to have on your side in the banter between fans.

UCLA used up all its good karma escaping Gonzaga The Bruins' desperate scramble to score the final 11 points of the game and extricate themselves from near-certain defeat was the...

    She's not afraid to offend -- "The right wing has taken over the Bible" -- yet she handles her students with kid gloves. Building them up, not tearing them down. "To be a writer, you have to be on the edge. Rules are meant to be broken," she tells 13 students seated around her on a small stage at Rollins College last week. I find beauty in Nikki Giovanni. Her short-cropped hair. Her Bohemian style of dress. Reading glasses on a beaded chain around her neck. The "thug life" tattoo on her left forearm, a tribute to deceased rapper Tupac...

    Hour 2: Chris Hansen did this excellent expose on Dateline NBC last week. In the piece they posed as young boys on the internet and lured sexual predators to a home. Once the men entered the home they confronted them. Besides the rabbi, there was a doctor, a special education teacher, an army man, a defense contractor, a medical student… the list goes on. Not one of these men, if you saw him on the street would stand out in a crowd. This piece was a scary view into the world of internet predators. What is your major malfunction guys!
