    The world is approching the ultimate crunch. The selfcentered mind made world created by human nature cannot survive the divine spirits of love truth and life. Self active human nature is filled with the spirits of hate, lies and death. These ill spirits are clearly displayed by the Islamo-Marxist-Chicago Gangster occupying the White House. The vessels dedicated to serving these ill spirits must pass away. We are in the third year after the inaugeration of Obama. This correlates to the third horse in the book of Revelation. In Revelation the black horse reveals famine and rationing. We see this before...

    I know that a lot of fellow FReepers stream Netflix. What are your suggestions for movies that may not have received the attention or respect that they deserved? What are you those gems that are worth watching again? How about that obscure movie that you tell people they should watch? Bonus points for links, pics or video of the movie you are talking about. I'll start; Firefly - The complete series. Nothing like a good old fashioned cowboys in space series.  Excellent cast, tight writing and a fan demanded ending.  Highly recommended. Zombieland Guns, zombies and jokes.  What more can...

    (CNN) -- Call it one small step for a cheese, one giant leap fromage-kind. A wheel of Le Brouere cheese was the secret cargo aboard the SpaceX Dragon, the first commercial spacecraft to be recovered from Earth orbit, the company revealed Thursday. SpaceX co-founder Elon Musk hinted at the cargo after the capsule's successful splashdown in the Pacific Ocean on Wednesday afternoon, suggesting it had something to do with the British comedy troupe Monty Python.

    The Telegraph ^ | 11-6-10 | Heidi Blake
    The Irish government has risked fomenting revolution by trying to solve the country's dire economic problems by handing out a free block of cheese to every family Brendan Smith, the agriculture minister, announced yesterday that the government would use European Union funding to buy 53 tonnes of fresh Irish cheddar and distribute it for free from 15 November. But Irish citizens responded angrily to the plan, which was likened to the "Let them eat cake" comment by Marie Antoinette that provoked the French revolution. The cheese will be distributed via collection centres in towns and cities across Ireland. Mr Smith...

    REPUBLICANS SAY their midterm election victory shows that the American people want to shrink the federal government and make it smarter. If that's true, and if the new GOP majority in the House wants to deliver on its promises, we can think of no better place to start than Dairy Management. This little-known appendage of the Agriculture Department exists for one purpose: to encourage Americans to drink more milk and eat more cheese, so dairy farmers can make more money. This is not our idea of an urgent national priority. To the contrary, annual cheese consumption in the U.S. has...

    UPI ^ | Nov. 7, 2010
    The U.S. government is in the position of convincing Americans to eat more cheese while trying to fight obesity at the same time, observers say. Dairy Management is a marketing creation of the U.S. Department of Agriculture, helping companies such as Domino's Pizza and Taco Bell promote and sell more cheese, while the USDA is also responsible for a federal anti-obesity campaign aimed at discouraging Americans from eating obesity-causing foods -- like cheese, the food Dairy Management is vigorously promoting, The New York Times reported Sunday. Government warnings about saturated fat have pushed Americans to low-fat milk for decades, creating...

    A Virginia Democratic organization appears to have violated federal election law by offering free beer to voters. The Arlington Young Democrats held a happy hour last week at which they offered "a free drink and some appetizers" to anyone who brought an "I Voted" stick to prove that he or she had voted early in Virginia, according to a flier. "In elections in which federal candidates are on the ballot, no one can offer any kind of benefit or reward for voting. The simple way to deal with this is to open up the event to all comers — voters and...

    CROOKSTON, Minn. — A moose is dead after being struck by two sports utility vehicles in northwestern Minnesota. The State Patrol says an SUV pulling a boat hit the moose "square on" shortly after 8 p.m. Sunday east of Crookston. The SUV rolled in the ditch, and the moose came to rest in the northbound lane. The moose was then hit by a second SUV, which also went off the road. The Crookston Daily Times reports both drivers and their passengers were wearing seat belts and apparently were not hurt. The patrol says the moose was killed when it was...

    Harvard Professor Raj Chetty and a group of other researchers have performed a much-discussed study (via Gene Expression) that looks at what factors really affect things like income, your likelihood to own a home, and odds of getting married. The most startling thing they found? Your score on a very basic kindergarten test is a HUGE predictor. Other educational factors like class size and the quality of your teachers aren't nearly as important. Given the renewed interest in educational policy in America right now, it's fascinating.
