  • My Christopher Buckley Experience

    First hand knowledge
    In either the last week of August or the first week of September, 1970, just before I arrived at college, I had the extraordinary experience of going to Sharon, Connecticut, to the home of William Buckley. With several hundred other young conservatives (I was 17), I gathered for a couple days to validate my totally-against-the-crowd perception of life, a perception inspired in large part by William Buckley, one of the giants of the 20th century. Buckley's inspiration was not a new or different perception of life. To the contrary, his perception was an explication of life, a logical and spiritual...

    In this war we are in, the one to conserve the best of what mankind has learned, the deepest question is one whose answer may go against us, and whose implications may be the millstone around our neck. The question is not new. It is old. It is the question about the powerful influence of religious belief on the affairs of mankind. Every sentient human mind necessarily considers God. Most humans, from whatever time or place, have come to a belief about God. It may be inculcated from birth, or taken after considerable open-minded thought. In the war we are...

    I say this with total respect for Christians, Jews, and anyone else who does not worship mohammed, as the slaves of islam do: The worshippers of mohammed, mohammedans, pretend that Judeo-Christian history is their own. It is a "history" found in mohammed-worship theology (the silly-goofy koran is the primary source) only because not-so-smart mohammed was a sociopath who incorporated elements of other religions while he was devising his own religion designed to associate mohammed with allah. The irony of islam is that, for rational folks, it is a direct challenge to any basis of faith. The worship of mohammed is...

    The Hope of The West, Is with the Hopeless of mohammed-worship Half the folks on FR cannot conceive of criticizing religion, period. To these Freepers, belief in religion is the measure of a person's goodness, and perhaps of their sanity and their judgment too. Consequently, there are a good many conservatives on this board who cannot bring themselves to understand or to oppose the grave threat of islam to the beautiful, astonishing and purely American gift to the world, liberty and freedom. Personally, I am an agnostic who has the utmost respect for religion, for the belief in God, for...

    10 WAYS TO FIGHT MOHAMMED-WORSHIP The worship of mohammed, which is inspired by islam (the made-up mess of a book called the koran, the hadith, the sira), has a nihilist view of existence, as do all the totalitarian belief systems thought up and implemented by demented, hating men. Paradise is always on the horizon; destruction, violence, hatred, sadism, pain and death, always on the march toward the ever-receding goal; in this case, until you get the promised sex orgy in heaven. Bombs and soldiers are not anywhere close to the answer in confronting totalitarianism. Nor is merely the will to...
  • First US celebrity to become a worshipper of mohammed?

    It is inevitable. Some prominent American will want to be the first on his block to pronounce the shahada and become an official worshipper of mohammed. The publicity will be too delicious, and the ego-augmentation unmatched. The desire to associate such a successful assassin, murderer, rapist, misogynist, slave-holder and all-around in-your-facer with The One True God, is nothing compared to the lure of a celebro-american associating himself with the mosque of what's happening now. Cynthia McKinney and John Conyers do not count. Neither does Noam Chomsky. The CNN-worthy frisson of "reversion" has to be present for this prediction to be...

    Heart of the team By KEITH JIRON Sun Sports Staff Friday, October 27, 2006 11:11 AM CDT Sean Marion has been responsible for lots of firsts. Thanks in part to a pair of quick feet and a knack for making defenders whiff, the Coconino standout running back has moved the sticks on a regular basis this season. Marion's also been accountable for at least two more firsts when it comes to his family name: Several years ago, he became to the first in his immediate family to play organized football. Then this summer, he once again ventured where no family...

    With most of the Western world in denial, ignorance or some degree of acquiesence before the dream of islamic hegemony, it is at least encouraging that all of a sudden a discussion has arisen among those westerners not so afflicted, whether we should identify the ideology of our enemies as fascist. It is encouraging because it might, perhaps, signal a sense that it is becoming more commonly acceptable in our societies to think of our enemies as not nice people. Maybe our reluctance to give offense is giving way, to some degree, to the foreboding that horrible suffering and death...

    Listen, some people like to concede defeat. I don't. I prefer, in Iraq, to concede victory. We won in Iraq; we've inadvertently created a situation which will inevitably lead to demoralization and division within the Camp of Islam. If only we have the good sense to recognize it and stop trying to prevent the result that is devoutly to be wished. It was all inevitable -- the day the regime was deposed. It was inevitable whether or not Turkey had allowed in a fourth division to invade from the north. It was inevitable whether the number of troops that went...

    The movie Zulu is a beautiful movie. It is gorgeous to look at, and it is profound. The humanity, nobility, honor, bravery and courage of the Zulu is awesome. The significant fact of Zulu manhood ... meaning intelligence and integrity ... is stark. Look at the nature of an enemy. Is it child-like? Petulant? Absurd for the sake of absurdity? Given to rioting and similar immaturity?

    Don't you remember the utter let-down when elder Bush broke the fundamental promise he made, "No new taxes"? The promise was not merely a bow to the Laffer curve, it was an emotional and pyschological statement to the many people in this country who still believe in constitutional goverment, and who knew that taxation was the means to undermine constitutional government, liberty and freedom, to put it another way. The younger Bush promised a Thomas or Scalia for the same reasons: to tell the believers in constitutional government that supporting him would mean a definitive change in the jurisprudence of...
  • Miers a political hack?

    Here is another view of Miers, just as speculative as what anyone else says. She is a political hack. People dont know this, but being president of a bar association does not mean you are a good lawyer, necessarily, it could also mean you are a very good self-promoter. Actually, my speculation is that it means your primary aim in life is pure self-promotion unburdened by any dedication to the law, as opposed to dedication to your status within the lawyer community, and thus within the wider (gullible) community. Being the managing partner of even a large law firm implies...

    The Chinese ideogram for crisis is composed of two separate characters: one means danger and the other means opportunity. Today Iran is in crisis. There lies a great danger as well as a great opportunity. The Islamic Republic of Iran (IRI) is a great danger to the world peace and your life. The Mullahs ruling Iran are developing atomic bombs and this means disaster for humanity.

    Please help. Four years ago one of the funniest threads of all time ran on FR. Ironically, it had to do with Al Gore's makeup at the debates, including his orange cheeks. I remember contributing to it and laughing so hard my sides were aching. I saw it a year or so ago on someone's personal page. Can a clever Freeper retrieve it?

    (Captain's log): Michael writes: You've written on a couple of occasions about, as you put it, "The Bush Masterstroke". It seems to me that we've gone quite a while now without one. I'm wondering if you see one coming, or circumstances under which such a play could be made. The obvious assumption would be that such a move would, by necessity, have to come before the election. I've thought about that. Of course, such a masterstroke isn't always possible. Opportunities for such things don't come along every day. Also, when I wrote about that I was talking about cases where...

    Islam is saying bye-bye. It's a big world out there, and Islam is trying to be noticed by killing. Most other folks dont give a rat's posterior about Islam, so inconsequential it is to any conceivable notion of progress among human beings. The folks who do notice, notice how laughable Islam is. The entire premise of Jihad is the same premise of Islam, that the Koran ... every word ... is the literal word of Allah. If one word of the Koran is false, than the whole Koran is false, and Islam is false. If one word of the Koran...

    When summit talks between Japan and the United States were recently held at US President George W Bush's Texas ranch, Prime Minister Junichiro Koizumi put emphasis on the need for "communication and pressure" toward the most worrying factor in East Asia, North Korea. In Japan there has been a general public displeasure with the soft line on North Korea by Japanese diplomacy and the ruling Liberal Democratic Party; therefore, commentators and the public were overjoyed with the prime minister's tougher remarks. However, the diplomatic councilor, Hitoshi Tanaka, was stubbornly opposed to the word "pressure" and demanded and conspired to have...

    Afghanistan's Taliban orders destruction of statues February 26, 2001 Web posted at: 11:45 PM HKT (1545 GMT) KABUL, Afghanistan -- Afghanistan's Taliban rulers have ordered the destruction of all the country's statues, including the world's tallest standing Buddha. The order came from the Taliban's supreme leader Mullah Mohammed Omar, who issued an edict declaring statues -- including ancient pre-Islamic figures -- an insult to Islam. "Because God is one God and these statues are there to be worshipped and that is wrong. They should be destroyed so that they are not worshipped now or in the future," Omar said in ...
