  • Family of Victims Shows No Sympathy at Killer's Execution

    this was NOT a botched execution, this was a successful execution! He died. Success!

    Check out "The Green Mile" movie, that is what Tom Hanks said.

    If found giulty, throw them in a real prison for life. If later you find out you have the wrong guy - which happens all too often - it can be corrected.

    I think the family member who watched him die also watched that man kill his 2 family members. pretty sure they had the right guy.

  • Another Take On Why Jews Vote Democrat (Evan Sayet)

    I always wondered WHY the Jews would vote for anyone who would take their guns?

    I read a book finally and it all boiled down to the fact that they are liberal over and above being Jewish.

    I don’t understand it at all.

    Bus them to the Smithsonian.

    What? Why?

    I say send them immediately to their embassies and let them return them and in the mean time feed, water and wash them. that would end it quickly.

    However the other best idea is the freeper who said start a rumor that 50,000 federal employees must start training 50,000 illegals to take their jobs and then we cut their salary by 25%.

    Win-win! We save 25% of the money that big gov. costs us AND as soon as the federal employees realize this affects them........ the political scene will change right away.

    I let a friend of mine in on my concerns about the future and told him that I was laying in supplies. He laughed and said “Great. I know right where to bring my family if the SHTF.”

    I had a friend say that to me too. so I got serious and sold my house, moved and will tell people my PO box # but not where the house is. Even family members until they come visit. The closest to me, hasn't even done that yet so they will be out of luck to mooch.

    I like Last Starfighter the way it is. I like Rollerball, 2001, and King Kong just the way they were originally made. I wish George Lucas hadn't meddled with Star Wars.

    I'm a huge fan of "Starfighter" AS IS and I love the "Flight of Nav." too. "Rollerball" is great also and some movies shouldn't be messed with.

    If Hollywood writers would get their noses out of the snow perhaps we could have great original movies again.

    I read your recommendation of taking them to the consulate and I called my US rep. There is a guy in his smaller office that will actually talk to me for 15 minutes and when I gave him the idea of taking them to the embassies he LOVED it. he said that he would hang up from me and call the Washington office I said let’s hang up.

    The way he put it was fly them to DC and take them to the embassies there. It would stop real quickly.

    Please call your US rep with this and see if we can get this ball rolling. :)

    I know what you mean about new sewing machines. I have a Singer that my parents gave me in the early ‘70s. I had not been sewing much in the last few years because it seemed like I couldn’t keep the tension set correctly. Thread would bunch up, and the fabric would just sit under the needle in a wad. I sent it twice to be worked on, and the third time I said if it didn’t work, I was going to buy a new one. Well, it didn’t work, and I ordered a new one. Before it arrived, I happened to feel the feed dogs on the Singer, and they were worn out. I ordered new feed dogs on the internet, and it works perfectly. I’m thrilled.

    The reason I'm so happy to have a new one was because for years the thread would bunch up and I would have it tuned every time I would start a project. (expensive)

    sometimes it would last till I finished, sometimes not. It was a Phaff. surprising I know. I guess just a lemon and why did I put up with it for so long?

    (I checked the dogs and they felt pretty good but thanks for the tip!)

    The Brother I wanted from Walmart was only $84.00. It wasn't in stock and hubby bought me the bigger brother. LOL nice.

    I'm planning to look thru the drawers for the projects that got wadded up in anger from the other machine and see if I can finish (or did I gain enough weight so they won't fit anymore? I did quit smoking 4 years ago so weight is different now.) them.

    I love your thread thread. Please add me to the ping list.

    Hubby just bought me a new sewing machine for my birthday . I think my last one was a lemon from day one. so I didn’t do much. Lately I have been making gardening aprons with huge pockets so that when out there and picking beans I have somewhere to put them.

    They turned out really cute and of course one had bats on it.

    Thanks for the blackout curtain ideas we have a part-time job where we need to go to bed very early and get up in the middle of the night. It will be very helpful to have those curtains.

    What great pictures of Marci, I don’t have any, she as so camera shy, that is why she wanted to be BEHIND the camera.

    In post #47 the young man is our son Alan I’m wondering if that was the freep 5 of us went up against 1500 leftists in Austin. We had them so very out brained. I think it was an anti war protest.

    In the #49 I am there next to Marci and I don’t remember going to the Bush Library especially in 2002 because Bush was president 2000-2008.

    Or was the the elder Bush library? I don’t remember that either but I have a mind like a sieve I always say. LOL

    Anyway thank you so much for the pictures.

    She was very involved with the family she meet thru the Terry Shivo experience in Florida and their church. She wasn’t very religious because I remember the 1st time I heard her say, “on 911 she fell to her knees and Thanked GOD that AlGore wasn’t the president that day”

    I have gotten ahold of her phone contacts and will be spending the afternoon on the phone. Wish me luck :(

    I just got the word 9:15am 5/15/14 that she has gone to be with God.

    Now she will have a body that doesn’t hurt and doesn’t get affected by every bit of dust and mold and whatever is out there that it hurt her.

    She was so sick last Christmas day that I called her almost every day since then just so that someone knew if she was OK.

    She said at that time that If she gets sent to a hospital they will kill her with whatever meds they give (trying to help) but she can’t take.
    Marci said she will either get to the hospital too late and she will die or will go too early and they will kill her (with good intentions)

    Thank you all FReepers for your prayers for her and the family. She loved FR but her computer was down for months now and I know that she wasn’t able to get online. She missed it.

    But she had gotten so involved with her life up north and was very happy most of the time. She did mention that the people of Illinois didn’t even know how corrupt the voting process was. It was so bad but just common and they didn’t even know it was illegal the things they did.

    One thing I will never forget about Marci was that she was COMPELLED to go to Florida during the Terry Shiavo murder and traveled up and down the State trying to stop them from killing Terry. She couldn’t explain WHY she had to be there but not a religious person just felt that God TOLD her to go.

    She met some great friends there and said that she felt REAL EVIL there in the Florida capitol - Jeb Bush. So when the republicans say that Jeb must run for Pres, I say NO MORE BUSHES!!!!!!! especially that one.

    So I met the Austin FReepers around the Govenors mansion, we were there 11 of the 36 days between election and consession. TheSarce was there all those days for long hours and got some incredible pictures.

    I know that just after I left one time, GW Bush came out of the the back door and Marci got 2 fanstastic pics of him with the victory sign and another one just great. I missed seeing him but the pictures did capture a moment.

    Those negatives will be lost in her stuff up north. what a shame!

    Wanted to let you know of her imminent passing. It won’t be long now.
    They wanted to do surgery but if you knew her, you would know that everything affected her badly and she would not have survived anesthesia. So she is allowed to go quietly.

    She has been very sick at Christmas and with her high blood pressure has expected this every day since then. I have been talking to her daily to make sure she had someone who cared and she had adult conversation with daily.

    With terrible computer troubles she has not been able to get on FR for months and I know missed it terribly.

    on 5/13/2014 10 pm I got a phone call from a fireman who said that Marci had passed out in a theatre where she had been to see a documentary of the Wrecking Crew (musical group) and a Q& A with the producer. It was very Marci.

    She had a seizure while we were talking and at the hospital the ER doc said she had burst a blood vessel in the brain. (she had VERY high blood pressure).

    Her goal recently was to get back to Texas and get her house ready to live in because the temps in Chicago area this winter were many degrees below zero almost every day. WAY TOO COLD for living.

    She is alive at this point but it won't be more than 2 days right now.

    She is surrounded by her new family up north where she has been living since 2008 and loved by them this whole time.

    MY COMMENT TO THE SITE:

    I read the Navy is considering not carrying tobacco products in Navy stores.

    Used to be we had freedom in America especially to use a LEGAL PRODUCT.

    We ask our military to fight for us, go on float for 6 months at a time but as grown men, you are going to tell them they can not smoke a cigarette?

    I weep for this country who is losing the freedoms we used to have.

    My request/demand is that you allow the men to choose to smoke or not, but carry the tobacco products in the stores.

    however, they make the CODE you have to enter so blurry that I did it 3 times and every time it was incorrect so I guess it didn’t go thru.

    AT LEAST this site they don’t wipe out your comment and you can just try the code again. Other places you can write paragraphs and they wipe it out, that is why I always copy it before I try the code.

    during Bush v Gore I called my liberal friend to tell her about Gore getting campaign money from the Budist monks - illegal!

    and she said "she HAD to vote democrat because if Bush won she would lose her state job."

    I said she was smart enough to get another job but questioned her voting for a traitor rather than to do so.

    I told her she was too stupid to be my friend and didn't talk to her again. I did keep in touch with her hubby (conservative) and of course she didn't lose her job after Bush won.

    But since then I have made sure that I don't have dem friends!!!

    I think it would be opening the door for the progressives and libertarians to cause much damage.

    That is because you think it is a Constitutional Convention and when I read the Constitution Article V it says that "on the application of 2/3rd of the States shall call for a convention for proposing amendments... then have to be ratified by 3/4th of the States"

    With most of the States republican I think most delegates would be republican (or conservative even better) but then the wording has to be the same back to every state and ratified by 3/4ths.

    I truly think that the founding fathers KNEW that we would have elected officials ruining the USA like they are and they put this fix in JUST FOR THIS TIME.

    I just wish they would have put the term limits and balanced budget in it at the beginning. But that doesn't mean that we can't at this point.

    It is more powerful if the same resolution comes to the county from several precincts. So if you like one, get your friends to put it in from their pct. I hunted for an Article V resolution and couldn't find one - Mark Levin sure dropped the ball there. So I wrote my own, BECAUSE there was one saying DO NOT CALL FOR AN ARTICLE V CONVENTION.

    Here is how I worded, feel free to take for your own, re word here or there. It is now public for Freeping in your State. :)

    RESOLUTION

    To call for an Article V Convention to Propose a Balanced Budget Amendment and Further Fiscal Restraints upon the U.S. Federal Government

    Whereas, the federal government is out of control and though politicians promise to cut spending and cut taxes they continue to rise no matter which party is in power.

    Whereas, The Founding Fathers gave us the answers to our problems continuously in the U.S. Constitution

    Whereas, in Article V. of the Constitution it gave 2 ways to propose amendments to the Constitution:

    1. by means of 2/3rds of the Congress (who will not give up the power) and

    2. by 2/3rds of the States to call for a “Convention for proposing Amendments”.

    Resolved we urge Texas Legislators to join Georgia and call for a Convention of States for the purpose of proposing amendments to the U.S. constitution only to limit the power of the Federal government and return the power to the States where the Founding Fathers meant it to be.

    Be it further resolved that the Convention be limited to restoring the American Republic by Amendments that:

    1. Establishing Term Limits for members of Congress,

    2. Repealing the 17th amendment and restoring the Senate to be mindful of the States

    3. Limiting federal spending and taxing

    4. Protect private property

    5. To grant the States the authority to check congress and regulatory agencies.

    6. To protect the vote

    I’m willing to be talked into Sitton. I’m ALL FOR OIL & GAS!!! :)

    on another note. I have been holding signs standing outside the one poll open in my county for early voting. I have my list printed 2 per page and cut to hand out.

    So many times people go to vote for one person and don’t give a thought to the judges. They are very important!!!

    You know the democrats take off on election day to get people to the polls, do phone banking and most important work the polls.

    How about ya’ll? Are you taking off Tues March 4th? A person standing with a sign and talking to people can affect a bunch of people. A clean election depends on good people manning the polls and especially counting the votes.

    If you will do that now, you will be trained for the important race in Nov. Please, please think about volunteering to work the election now and in Nov.

    Several of the State wide offices have candidates being backed by Joe Straus. Harvey Hildebrand is one of those candidates.

    WHOAAAAAAA! that is good enough for me, I will change my vote. One guy we need to get rid of is Straus!

    I had Debra Medina on my list w/ Hildebrand and wondered why Hegar got an endorsement from prolife groups after his bad scorecard and then I found he had given them money. (pay for play?) so I had crossed him off my list.

    But if it is a choice of defeating any person who is a Straus guy then I will go Hegar.

    Here is my list:

    United States Senator – Dwayne Stovall (R) NO MORE CORNYN!!!
    United States Representative, District 6 – Frank Kuchar (R) knows The Constitution better than I do and that is saying something!
    Governor — Greg Abbott (R) good man
    Lieutentant Governor – Jerry Patterson my friend.
    Attorney General – Ken Paxton(R)
    Comptroller of Public Accounts – Harvey Hilderbran(R)
    Commissioner of the General Land Office – David Watts (R)
    Commissioner of Agriculture — Eric Opiela (R) 5th generation rancher, I want someone close to the land for Ag commissioner.

    Railroad commissioner - Malachi Boyuls
    Chief Justice, Supreme Court — Nathan Hecht (R)
    Justice, Supreme Court, Place 6, Unexpired Term — Jeff Brown (R)
    Justice, Supreme Court, Place 7 — Jeffrey Boyd (R)
    Justice, Supreme Court, Place 8 — Phil Johnson (R)
    Judge, Court of Criminal Appeals, Place 2 W.C. “Bud” Kirkendall.
    Judge, Court of Criminal Appeals, Place 3 – Bert Richardson
    Judge, Court of Criminal Appeals, Place 4 — Kevin Yeary (R)

    State Representative, District 8 – Bobby Vickery. my current rep Bryon Cook won’t answer phone calls, won’t answer emails. If you attend a meeting that he is at, he will be OUT THE DOOR before you can go shake his hand. He won’t press the flesh, kiss the babies or attend a debate put together in his honor. If he won’t meet when he is asking for votes, he will NEVER be around when you need him for your representative.

    Cook was chair of the State affairs committee who didn’t let out one single prolife bill out of committee. I checked this fact with 3 prolife groups. They say he is the worst. If we can get rid of this rep. and 2 others the TX state house will improve immensely.

  • Editorial: Cornyn earns third term (Another glowing LSM endorsement...)

    Speaking of Obamacare, Cornyn said in September: “The only way to effectively stop Obamacare is to dismantle it entirely.”

    so he can SAY that he wants to stop ObamaCare BUT what he DOES is stop republican senators from stopping Dems from voting Obamacare in.

    In November 2009, then-Sen. Jim DeMint laid out the Democrats' strategy. They would call for a motion to proceed on unrelated legislation. Then, if 60 senators agreed, Harry Reid would strip out the original bill, insert Obamacare in its place and send it for final passage, which required just 50 votes - and which Democrats could achieve with a party-line vote.

    That way, Republicans and Democrats could vote for the motion to proceed, which would enable Obamacare to become law, without actually voting for Obamacare.

    DeMint also had a strategy to stop them. He knew Christmas vacation was coming, senators could smell the jet fuel, and they wanted to get out of town. So he worked to gum up the works...Obstruct & Object to delay the vote until after Christmas vacation when Democratic senators up for re-election would feel pressure from voters to "Kill the Bill."

    They would oppose the motion to proceed. They would force the entire 757-page amendment from Socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders to be read on the Senate floor, and the overall 2,000-page bill after that.

    Everybody from Rush Limbaugh on the right to then-RNC head Michael Steele on the less-right, agreed this was the way to go. But not John Cornyn.

    JOHN CORNYN sent a memo to EVERY GOP senator that said they should cooperate with Harry Reid, vote for the motion to proceed and let Obamacare pass.

    RE-READ THAT LAST PARAGRAPH! We have Obamacare because of Cornyn.

    AND THEN... he said they would fight the debt ceiling and we just saw how Cornyn rather than fight for us against the dems will fight Cruz when Cruz fights the dems.

    Cornyn rolled over and because of him our other republicans didn't fight for the debt ceiling to not be raised higher. Go ahead and screw the taxpayers because it is only over 1 Trillion or 6 trillion or whatever. It is just money.

    I held signs outside an early voting place in my county and had to make my own Stovall sign but had fun. I too will enjoy voting against the next Bush. I’m like Mrs Barbara Bush, “no more Bushes” and I add EVER!

    Also passed out my pics for all races. Several took them. Very important for the judges too. People don’t do enough vetting on the judges.

    I hear all the commercials about Cornyn "pushing back....every day"

    Cornyn can't even back a Republican who is pushing back much less do the pushing back himself!

  • Tx State Rep District 8 Rhino Byrom Cook raises $115,000 not 1 dollar came from his district

    Before this thread disappears and if gone I want to have on the record that Byron Cook is the Chair of the State Affairs committee. So if he doesn’t want a bill out for a vote it doesn’t get out.

    The Concerned Women of America had 65 bills that they were working on. Most were pro-life. None got out in the regular session. The only reason 11 of them got out for a vote was because Rick Perry got them out in special session.

    Now once they were out for a vote, Byron Cook did vote for them but holding up bills is another way to defeat something before the fact (vote). How very Sun Tzu.

    The Bat Lady to Marcella; All

    Thank you Marcella! My biggest question of why, Why, WHY in the world would any republican support a DL for illegals is “does it say no VOTING all across it” ?

    This answers my question. I would have asked this of Byron Cook but he will not face voters in a 2 minute talk at the county exec session or a debate or by phone with a single voter. I have tried.

    Since you explained this let me state further, giving a PERMIT to illegals still makes them more “legal” when they shouldn’t be here at all!
    Yes, I would like to know who they are but they still won’t deport, call ICE or anything to make it more uncomfy for them to be here.

    I would rather have bills that forbid employers from hiring, landlords from renting and NO absolutely NO NO NO Welfare, food stamps and basically the same rules Mexico has for their southern border.

    I don’t want to make it easier to stay or appear legal. But that is just me.
