    1. First, actually ask the question sincerely, "Uncle Sam, HOW can I save America today? Accept that it IS up to ME and I have accountability for my choices for her THIS DAY. 2. Read the Constitution, Founding Documents, and a good history of America. [We have one of the best histories written by Freepers Larry Schweikart and Michael Allen, entitled "A Patriot's History of the United States." Rush Limbaugh is also putting out a series of histories written for children, but are also entertaining for adults which are excellent.] 3. Read current events and know what is happening. Do...
  • Agenda 21 Action Thread

    03/23/2012 4:34:41 PM PDT · by TEXOKIE · 216 replies · 2+ views
    A few days ago I realized that we who are participating on the Agenda 21 thread have amassed an impressive amount of data and links which are quite important for the educating of anyone who is wondering what “Agenda 21” is all about. There is absolutely no question in the minds of any of our participants at this stage that “Agenda 21” is real, and is NOT a tin-foil hat conspiracy. There are quite a number of people on this forum who were way ahead of us, and have been quite patient with us while some (like myself) have played...

    The Hollywood Reporter ^ | Sept 9 2011 | Alex Ben Block, Daniel Miller
    "Casting him as a director or perhaps as the star of 'Judah Maccabee' is like casting Madoff to be the head of the Securities and Exchange Commission," says Rabbi Marvin Heir. Prominent Jewish leaders are beginning to speak out against Mel Gibson and Warner Bros. over their planned movie based on the life of religious icon Judah Maccabee. SNIP

We place before you the entire tissue of circumstance: # The...

    Several people have become interested in a quite controversial topic called "AGENDA 21." They have requested being on a ping list for this topic. While I do not have time to do a thorough treatment of this subject, nor am I in any way an expert, I am willing at least for a time,to ping people as I run across articles which might pertain to this concern. It might be good to start with an examination of just what it is or might be. To kick this discussion and exploration off,I did a Google search (just for fun) on "Agenda...

    Environmental Protection Agency ^ | 5/11/11 | EPA, John Senn
    (New York, N.Y.) U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Regional Administrator Judith Enck today traveled to New York’s Great Swamp in Brewster, N.Y. to discuss the importance of clean water and a draft guidance developed by EPA and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to clarify which waters are subject to protection under the Clean Water Act. The future status and condition of the Great Swamp is dependent not only on what happens directly within the swamp, but also on activities within its nearly 100-square-mile watershed, which includes the headwaters of the Housatonic River, the Croton River, Long Island Sound and...
  • Chief justice urges progress naming judges

    AP ^ | 1/1/11 | Jesse Holland
    WASHINGTON – Republicans and Democrats must find a long-term solution to selecting federal judges, Chief Justice John Roberts says, while blaming both sides for the political gridlock of judicial nominations in the Senate. "Each political party has found it easy to turn on a dime from decrying to defending the blocking of judicial nominations, depending on their changing political fortunes," Roberts said Friday in his year-end report. "This has created acute difficulties for some judicial districts. Sitting judges in those districts have been burdened with extraordinary caseloads." ---SNIP--- "I am heartened that the Senate recently filled a number of district...

    Miami New Times ^ | December 29, 2009 | Francisco Alvarado
    Michael Beasley hobbled up the stairs leading to his second-floor apartment near the southern tip of Miami Beach. On the way home from Haulover Park, the 60-year-old Jacksonville native had purchased a couple of burgers for himself and his beloved green Amazon parrot, Seaweed. Then something startled Beasley. His front door had been pried open. Normally, Seaweed would squawk the greeting, "Hey, how ya doing?" But this time there was silence. Beasley, who walks with a cane because of a back injury, limped into his living room. The bird and his six-foot domed cage were gone. So were the 32-inch...

    Here's wishing all Prayer Warriors and our beloved troops and all standing with them a belated yet very sincere Happy Thanksgiving! I know I'm echoing many when I say we have so very much to be thankful for. High on my list are our magnificent countrymen who stood in lines throughout the nation and voted for the more difficult and rewarding path of Liberation and Morality. High on my list are the precious young men and women who have "placed themselves between their loved homes and the war's desolation" by serving in our armed forces and in our intelligence services...

    In a conversation with freepers amom and yellowroseoftexas, we were talking about the belief on the part of the terrorists that when they go to Paradise, they will be greeted with 72 virgins. We were wondering what the heavenly reward for the female terrorists might be. I suggested that maybe the reset button is pushed on them so they are restored to virgin status. My guess is that they are then honored by being one of the 72 for another hero. But what I dont understand is how that might be conceived of as a good thing.

    I was communicating the other day with someone who has been feeling all kinds of despair about the attacks on President Bush, our society and schools, and so many other areas we are seeing under siege by rebellious elements in our culture. I pondered her message of despair; that we are losing and so forth. And these are some thoughts that came to me. After writing this for her, I thought that perhaps one or two of you out there might be hearing those inner ankle-biting gremlin voices as well. I have been holding vigil here in my isolated place...
  • Hanoi John Responsible for the Reviling of Returning Troops (Vanity)

    07/31/2004 1:24:07 PM PDT · by TEXOKIE · 94 replies · 1,187+ views
    I have great concern that it was Kerry's testimony (and the fakes he brought with him) before the Congress in 1971 that is DIRECTLY responsible for the greetings that our troops who served in Viet Nam received when they returned home. These heros DID NOT deserve the spit and epithets of "baby killer!" when they came home from one nightmare only to be confronted with another. John Kerry's testimony told Americans that our young men were worthless scum. He told Americans that our young men performed horrendous war crimes as a common, matter-of-course habit. HE LIED. This fact about that...
