    Rush Limbaugh has rejected an advertiser’s apparent attempt to reunite with his show after the company initially dropped its ads from the program following his remarks about contraception advocate Sandra Fluke. The company, Sleep Train, calls itself “the No. 1 Bedding Specialist on the West Coast, and most recognized mattress retailer in the region.” In an email to Sleep Train President Dale Carlsen (obtained by The Blaze), a representative of the show says that Limbaugh personally considered the company’s request, but denied it considering its public comments following the controversy. “Thank you for your requests last week and this week...

    Some of the guys and I are presently at the camping lodge and we’ve got a problem that requires the help of a sensible woman. My brother-in-law managed to get something in his hair this morning, and he wanted to wash it out. I can’t tell you what that something was, because he’s refused to divulge that to us thus far (I suspect that he fabricated the “tainted hair” theory to save himself some embarrassment.) My brother-in-law believes that his wife has, at some point, told him that peanut butter is a useful household hair cleaner / conditioner. His wife...

    I'm posting this topic in an effort to try to get a grip on the insanity that plagues this country. Generally speaking, I know the reasons, but it is without logic why our country continues to spiral out of control towards oblivion in regards to political, social, and cultural traits. Thus, without further ado, I will try to explain some of the many examples. In regard to politics, how can our politicians continue to promote policies that expand government control. Furthermore, how can they neglect to get involved in those areas that are constitutionally given? Not only that, but how ...

    A Waterloo man and his dog made a harrowing escape from the clutches of a vicious black bear Thursday while portaging near Wawa, Ont. Tom Tilley, 55, killed the nearly 200-pound bear by jumping on its back and stabbing the aggressive animal with a six-inch hunting knife after his dog alerted him and distracted the bear. "Love is a very powerful emotion and my thought right away was, 'You're not going to kill my dog,' " Tilley said yesterday. "I really consider my dog a hero. Without that first warning I would have had the bear clamping down on my...

    We've got some real challenges facing us. FR was established to fight against government corruption, overstepping, and abuse and to fight for a return to the limited constitutional government as envisioned and set forth by our founding fathers in the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution and other founding documents. One of the biggest cases of government corruption, overstepping and abuse that I know of is its disgraceful headlong slide into a socialist hell. Our founders never intended for abortion to be the law of the land. And they never intended the Supreme Court to be a legislative body. They...

    GEORGE W. BUSH - MEGAMORON AMERICA’S LAMEST DUCK © by Norman Liebmann Reflecting on Jimmy Carter’s Habitat for Humbug, Bush’s Open Borders, and Bill Clinton’s Open Zippers, it is a mercy that The Soprano’s series ended before Tony’s murky-minded son, A.J., could grow up to be President. The nation is in enough trouble, not the least of which is the Bush scheme for hemispheric Mexificiation. Bill Clinton made our capital into The District of Decadence, a laboratory for culturing liberals and lice. Under his purview, corruption became ambience and greed became “local color”. Under Bush Washington has not recovered. Clinton’s...

    Remember back in 200 when George W. Bush was running for President? Even if you didn't support him, you were somewhat anticipating a Presidency with this amusing guy who didn't know the names of foreign leaders and who spoke with the eloquence of a second greater. Remember how after he was elected,Comedy Central even saw his Presidency as being whimsical enough to create a show, "That's my Bush." It was a laugh a minute back in those Bush salad days. Now we have quagmires in Iraq and Afghanistan, a budding world war centered around Israel, $3 a gallon gas, $85...

    It was a typical US Internal Revenue back door maneuver. Without hearings, without notice, in the dead of night in late 2004, an obscure provision affecting taxes in the US Virgin Islands was slipped into a 650-page bill that amended US Internal Revenue Code. The USVI provision has caused financial havoc in the islands, a sunny paradise that has been America's little-known offshore tax haven for decades. Many hundreds of wealthy individuals and hundreds of businesses could be driven away and the USVI Treasury could lose upwards of $300 million in annual revenues -- all because some faceless IRS bureaucrats...

    Wis. Law Already Protects Mothers. MADISON, Wis. -- Asking a breast-feeding mother to cover-up could soon cost people in Wisconsin $200. A proposed bill by state Sen. Fred Risser would protect mothers who breast-feed in public from being harassed. Under Wisconsin law it is perfectly legal for a woman to breast-feed her child in a public place. But while the state law may be behind the mother, the public isn't always behind the law, Madison television station WISC reported. Michelle Morgan said she has run into problems trying to breast-feed her son, Ian, in public. "A woman basically said to...

Lorrie Heasley, of Woodland, Wash., was asked to leave her flight from Los Angeles to Portland, Ore., Tuesday for wearing a T-shirt with pictures of President Bush, Vice President Dick Cheney and Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice and a phrase similar to the popular film...

    CRAWFORD, Texas (AP) - Hundreds of candlelight vigils calling for an end to the war in Iraq lit up the night Wednesday, part of a national effort spurred by one mother's anti-war demonstration near President Bush's ranch. The vigils were urged by Cindy Sheehan, who has become the icon of the anti-war movement since she started a protest Aug. 6 in memory of her son Casey, who died in Iraq last year. Sheehan says she will remain outside the president's ranch until he meets with her and other grieving families, or until his monthlong vacation there ends. Bush has said...
