    In the past, I have hesitated about contributing to Free Republic. Utility bills are coming due, and my house needs a new roof. But then I think about what I'd be willing to pay if this were a pay site. And then I think about all the good Free Republic does. I'll be sending out a money order, and soon. Just something I had to say.

On Friday's Laura Ingraham Show, Elaine, a black woman from Baltimore, expressed her outrage that President Barack Obama is putting the interests of illegal immigrant children above those of American citizens....

    Levin warned that House Speaker John Boehner’s lawsuit, which stands a very good chance of being dismissed by the courts, could wind up emboldening Obama. “John Boehner says no to impeachment, no to the power of the purse, no to shutting down the government which was shut down 20 times before he was speaker in multiple administrations,” Levin said. “John Boehner attacks conservatives and the Tea Party. Let me tell you something, Sean -- he’s bringing this lawsuit which has a very slim chance of success given standing issues and precedent in courts, and he is playing with fire because...

    By using summer vacation empty Public School classrooms as holding pens for the Illegal Hispanic Children Invaders, Obama has insured that these classrooms will not be de-loused and fumigated in time for Public School to start by Labor Day, 2014. This planned disruption of the normal Public School year was timed to disrupt the Fall Election Campaign, on a number of different topics, not the least of which is to provide a major distraction to numerous Obama scandals, mismanagement, and the total six year failure of the Democrat Party's Obama as a leader, both Foreign and Domestic.

    Banning the teaching and speaking of Spanish in Public Schools would expel many Illegal Alien Invaders from US Public Schools, and thus reduce the financial impact to US Taxpayers whose taxes pay for Public Schools. The failure of the Obama Administration to protect the Citizens of the US from the expenses and job losses caused by the Invasion of Illegal Alien Invaders from Spanish-speaking countries proves that this Obama-caused "Dreamer" Invasion was implemented by Obama to "Fundamentally transform the United States of America."

    I am a Republican, a black, dyed in the wool Republican, and I never intend to belong to any other party than the party of freedom and progress. It is easier to build strong children than to repair broken men. I prefer to be true to myself, even at the hazard of incurring the ridicule of others, rather than to be false, and to incur my own abhorrence. Where justice is denied, where poverty is enforced, where ignorance prevails, and where any one class is made to feel that society is an organized conspiracy to oppress, rob and degrade them,...

Here’s a slightly revised version of my Facebook post, which still failed to satisfy their paranoia and inability to understand the law. I’ve also added a little hypothetical that might open their minds. (No, don’t say it. It’s improbable, but not impossible, that a DemProg mind can open).

    Google's right to be forgotten system is woefully inadequate and censoring things it shouldn't. We decided to make a number of right to be forgotten claims to see what would happen.

There are loads of websites that collate information about people and spew out automated profiles – 192.com and Peekyou.com being two examples. These websites might be annoying, but should they ever be censored from search results if all they are doing is collating publicly available information? None of the information...

    Happy Fourth of July, America! Never forget what Thomas Jefferson called “the Spirit of 1776” – a sentiment rooted in the abiding belief that all men are created equal and desire freedom. Reagan invoked that same spirit in his famous speech “A Time for Choosing” when he urged us not to “abandon the American revolution and confess that a little intellectual elite in a far-distant capitol can plan our lives for us better than we can plan them ourselves.” Today and every day, let’s remember the “Spirit of 1776” and celebrate Independence, not government!

    Obviously, the safety issue is very important. But, I don't know a single gun owner who doesn't know when and where he/she can safely fire their weapons. Why do it? 1. America’s revolution was an armed revolution -- and not a fireworks display -- that led to the freedom of this nation. People died. People gave 'their lives, their fortunes, and their sacred honor.' 2. Fireworks are nice, pretty, a crowd pleaser. And, for a country that understands their past, present, and future freedom, fireworks are a good reminder. When our own Veterans Administration can't remember that "Independence Day" is...

Not only because he’s a devoted and vocal family man, but also because the president’s demeanor is very dad-like. Remember how, during his very first speech as president-elect, he announced that he’d finally given into his daughter’s pleading and acquired a family dog? And have you seen his choice of jeans? Or the way he pumps iron at the gym? There’s no doubt, Obama has most definitely earned his nickname. Even President Obama’s political style has been inspired...

    I. INTRODUCTIONGod forgive me, but I used to be so anti-gun that I donated to The Brady Campaign To Prevent Gun Violence. I know. Mea culpa, mea culpa, mea maxima culpa. Since that time, IÂ’ve done a complete 180 and become a fervent gun supporter and a proud member of the NRA.This change did not come about because I suddenly became a psychopathic killer, with guns as my weapon of choice. I do kill (spiders, fleas, and ticks) and I do eat dead bodies (cows, pigs, chicken, and fish), but IÂ’m scarcely Hannibal Lecter.Instead, my reversal on guns came about...
  • The Four Horsemen of Hobby Lobby: The left’s apocalyptic fear of a Green family win

    06/16/2014 3:16:28 AM PDT · by 2ndDivisionVet · 8 replies
    The Supreme Court is expected to hand down its ruling in Sebelius v. Hobby Lobby on June 26, and the closer we get to that date the more frantic liberals become. Their fear of a decision in favor of the arts and crafts chain, whose owners have challenged the constitutionality of Obamacare’s contraception mandate on the grounds that it violates their religious liberty, has reached such a pitch that they are making claims that transcend the merely portentous. Their warnings concerning the consequences of a high court win for the Green family, the company’s owners, have now become downright apocalyptic....
  • The Iraq Invasion.The First Crisis Obama Did Not Find Out From Watching Cable News?

    This would make for great material for Rush Limbaugh and Fox News. Obama actually found out about the violent invasion of Iraq via his advisors and Joe Biden.Although it would of been rather laughable if he used the "I First Found Out About It" on this embarrassing military debacle.Maybe he wanted to,then realized that no one would believe him?,and remember the Gibson Guitar Raids of 2009?,that was never on the news that Gibson was using illegal wood to manufacture their products,yet Obama didn't waste time sending the Men In Black to their factories in a deep red state !!!

    Earlier this year, Sauk Rapids satirist Dan McCall won a legal victory over the federal government after National Security Agency reps tried to get online retailers to stop selling shirts emblazoned with the the agency's seal and slogans like this: "The NSA: The only part of government that actually listens." The NSA essentially claimed their logo is copyrighted and couldn't be used without permission, an argument that didn't pass muster in light of the First Amendment's protection of satire. Now, a pro-Hillary Clinton group is making a version of that same argument to once again get McCall's products pulled from...
