    Customs officers at Miami International Airport were sitting pretty after discovering nearly $500,000 hidden inside a chair being smuggled out of the US, officials said. The US Customs and Border Protection officers seized the $491,280 in the chair, which sat along with other furniture in a recent shipment bound for the Dominican Republic, the agency said in a statement. Authorities selected the crate for examination during outbound enforcement operations, officials said. “Criminal organizations will attempt to export large sums of cash to launder their ill-gotten gains,” said Robert Del Toro, the CBP’s acting port director. “This is a significant seizure...

    The Black Lives Matter movement (BLM) casts itself as a spontaneous uprising born of inner city frustration, but is, in fact, the latest and most dangerous face of a web of well-funded communist/socialist organizations that have been agitating against America for decades. The Black Lives Matter movement claims that only whites can be racists. And while justifying violence to achieve “social justice,” the movement’s goal is to overthrow our society to replace it with a Marxist one. Many members of the black community would be shocked to learn that the intellectual godfathers of this movement are mostly white Communists, “queers”...
  • SC senators resurrect bill to bring back the electric chair, add firing squad

    COLUMBIA, S.C. - S.C. senators have revived a proposal to bring back the electric chair for the state’s death row executions, as well as add firing squads as an execution option. The proposal passed the state Senate by a 26-13 vote Wednesday, split mostly along party lines. It now heads to the S.C. House, where a similar proposal died last year. Backed by Senate Republicans, the bill is an attempt to address the S.C. Corrections Department’s inability to carry out executions because it does not have the chemicals needed for lethal injections. Drug companies won’t sell the state the chemicals,...

    I used to have a flower garden in my backyard. A few years ago I decided to move my flowers to the front yard so my neighbors could enjoy them. I found that I could keep some them blooming in the winter by surrounding them with water in containers and covering them with transparent tarps. On warm days I uncover them so can enjoy the ones that are still green or even blooming. They often begin growing again in early March so they are doing well by the end of April. A week before Christmas I got a letter from...
  • Zagorski files suit against use of electric chair, claiming it's 'utterly barbaric'

    NASHVILLE, Tenn. - Attorneys for death row inmate Edmund Zagorski filed yet another suit in federal court Friday in what is likely among one of his final options to stop his upcoming death penalty, set to be carried out in the electric chair on Thursday. In this latest lawsuit, Zagorski’s attorney Kelley Henry claims the state’s method of execution by electrocution is cruel and unusual punishment and “utterly barbaric,” despite Zagorski selecting the electric chair over lethal injection – a choice that Henry has described as the lesser of two evils. ​​Zagorski’s attorney claims both forms of execution are unconstitutional,...

    White Greater Double WE ARE CALLED UPON, a second time, to honor St. Peter’s Chair: first, it was his Pontificate in Rome; today it is his Episcopate at Antioch. The seven years spent by the Prince of the Apostles in the second of these cities were the grandest glory she ever had; and they are too important a portion of the life of St. Peter to be passed by without being noticed in the Christian Cycle. Three years had elapsed since our Lord’s Ascension. The Church had already been made fruitful by martyrdom, and from Jerusalem she had spread...

    White Greater Double THE ARCHANGEL GABRIEL told Mary, in the Annunciation, that the Son who was to be born of her should be a King, and that of his Kingdom there should be no end. Hence, when the Magi were led from the East to the Crib of Jesus, they proclaimed it in Jerusalem, that they came to seek a King. But this new Empire needed a Capital; and whereas the King, who was to fix his throne in it was, according to the eternal decrees, to re-ascend into heaven, it was necessary that the visible character of his...

    Avi Assaf, who was wounded when a terrorist opened fire in a market in Petah Tikva Thursday afternoon, described to Arutz Sheva how he chased and subdued the terrorist despite his injuries. Six people were wounded in the terrorist attack. "I heard shots and people shouting 'terrorist! terrorist!'

The terrorist entered a store for sewing machines, and Assaf followed him. "He took two screwdrivers and tried to stab me. I grabbed a chair...

It’s a workstation that, with a push of a button, transitions from a standing desk to a seated table to a fully reclined platform like a dentist’s chair. Its seat expands and retracts, supporting the whole body from head to heels. Its desk moves up, down and rotates. There’s a screen and mouse and keyboard that follows the user’s eyes and hands.

    “Give a man a reputation as an early riser,” said Mark Twain, “and he can sleep ‘til noon.” Hillary Clinton finds herself in the opposite situation: She has a reputation for venality — the merits of which we can set aside momentarily — that forces her to a higher ethical standard. Her inadequate response to the conflicts of interest inherent in the Clinton Foundation show that she is not meeting that standard, and has not fully grasped the severity of her reputational problem. The purpose of the Clinton Foundation is to leverage Clinton fame into charitable donations. That purpose has...

    Chalk it up to a small world or to a tangled web, but Uranium One, the Russian-owned uranium mining company at the center of a recent scandal involving the Clintons and a close Canadian business partner, has lobbied the State Department through a firm co-founded by Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign chairman. Senate records show that The Podesta Group has lobbied the State Department on behalf of Uranium One — once in 2012, when Hillary Clinton was secretary of state, and once in 2015. Uranium One paid The Podesta Group $40,000 to lobby the State Department, the Senate, the National...

    Hello Freepers, I am looking to buy a new office chair and was looking for recommendations/suggestions, and endorsements. Advice about chairs to avoid is welcome too. I don't have any odd requirements to speak of. I just want a chair that swivels, rocks and has some height adjustment. I am about 6'3", and weigh 207 lbs so I'd probably want a "big/tall" version.Obviously I want comfort and good ergonomics. I posted this in the "computer" topic because I figured those of you computer guys/gals that spend copious amounts of time in front of a machine would have unique knowledge. Also,...
