    Will they lay Hillary Clinton in a Crystal Coffin? When Chairman Mao died on the 9th of September 1976 of Parkinson’s Disease, the death of the Party Leader was not announced right away. The government officials instead gave a warning to the nation that an announcement of extreme importance will be made later in the day at 4pm. Just before 4pm, citizens all across China gathered around transistor radios to hear the announcement, that Mao Zedong has died of a disease which they had no awareness he had. In fact, Mao was mostly in seclusion during his last five years,...

  • Another Nail In The Dollar's Coffin: CME Launching Renminbi Futures On August 22

    Remember when the dollar reigned supreme, and nobody cared about that joke of a currency, the Chinese Renminbi? Neither do we. And neither does the CME, which just announced it is launching USD/CNY futures, which will be available in standard and E-micro sizes beginning August 22. Put otherwise, with one fell swoop the CME will now allow one to transform liability risk, credit and maturity of underlying assets from one currency to another, while on margin (granted, exposed to the same margin shenanigans that make silver bulls scream blood murder every time the CME's name is mentioned). And the CME...

After arriving on scene, they found that the man had crossed into Minnesota. They took a closer look at the man's "canoe" and discovered it was actually a lid from a coffin.

    ABC News has learned Andrew Stern will vote no on the deficit commission’s plan to reduce the national deficit by nearly $4 trillion. Mr. Stern, the former president of the SEIU, has informed co-chairmen Erskine Bowles and Alan Simpson that he will be the fifth member voting no, ending the commission’s hopes of officially passing the plan to Congress. The commission needed votes from 14 of the 18 members in order to pass the plan to Congress. Mr. Stern joins Sen. Max Baucus and Reps. Dave Camp, Paul Ryan and Jan Schakowsky in voting against the plan. He is also...

    My Writings | August 14, 2010 | John Leland 1789
    I wonder sometimes just how many Bible preachers and teachers from among Evangelicals, Pentacostals, and Baptists are active on Free Republic. Would you like to post some serious preaching outlines with brief comments based on three interesting photos from China? I'd be very interested to see how quickly anyone could put the three photo illustrations together and produce an outline for one sermon. Please, let's witness with some serious work. Thoughtful and prayerful students of the Scriptures will quickly recognize Biblical themes that can be illustrated from these photos. The first one is a man actually carrying a coffin on...

The NASDAQ OMX has been approved to start the clearing of stocks next month.

    Italian prosecutors believe pizza in the southern city of Naples may be baked in ovens lit with wood from coffins dug up in the local cemetery. "Pizza, one of the few symbols of Naples that endures ... is hit by the concrete suspicion that it could be baked with wood from coffins," Italian daily newspaper Il Giornale reported. Investigators in Naples are setting their sights on the thousands of small, lower-end pizza shops and bakeries that dot the city on suspicion that the owners may "use wood from caskets to keep ovens burning." Naples' graveyard has long been hunting ground...

    By the way: I would call Russ Carnahan 'inbred,' but that's an insult to endogamists. Let us start by watching what happened SUNDAY. This is via Gateway Pundit - who, by the way, was there and who was a spokesman: Got it? Low-key prayer vigil, coffin brought in for staged funeral of Constitution, old people crying, coffin then removed. Now let’s see how Politico referenced it: A coffin was placed on a Missouri Democrat’s lawn, another in a string of incidents against lawmakers after their vote Sunday on a health care overhaul.Rep. Russ Carnahan (D-Mo.) had a coffin placed “near...

    When the remains of hundreds of colonial-era Africans were uncovered during a building excavation in Lower Manhattan in 1991, one coffin in particular stood out. Nailed into its wooden lid were iron tacks, 51 of which formed an enigmatic, heart-shaped design. The pattern was soon identified as the sankofa — a symbol printed on funereal garments in West Africa — and it captured the imagination of scholars, preservationists and designers. Ultimately, it was embraced by many African-Americans as a remarkable example of the survival of African customs in the face of violent subjugation in early America. The sankofa was widely...

    SANTIAGO (AFP) - An 81-year old man in the small Chilean village of Angol shocked his grieving relatives by waking up in his coffin at his own wake, local media said on Sunday. ADVERTISEMENT When Feliberto Carrasco's family members discovered his body limp and cold, they were convinced that the octogenarian's hour had come, so they immediately called a funeral home, not a doctor. Carrasco was dressed in his finest suit for the wake, and his relatives gathered to bid him a final farewell. "I couldn't believe it. I thought I must be mistaken, and I shut my eyes," Carrasco's...
