    Rasmussen/ The Lid ^ | 9/30/09 | The Lid
    Last week the Senate Finance committee turned down an amendment that would have required a the Obamacare bill to be posted on the internet and a 72 hour waiting time before it was voted on so the congress and the public could read the bill. The amendment was turned down because the Democrats thought it was a stalling tactic. The latest Rasmussen survey reports that it isn't a delaying tactic but the will of the people.

    I see it so often that someone logs onto a thread and proclaims it to be a waste of time that it begs the question: Why log onto the thread at all? Isn't it by definition a waste of time? We saw that a lot on Duncan Hunter threads, now on the certifigate threads. I'm sure there are some religion threads that would qualify. So I offer this thread where Freepers can log on and let other freepers which ones they consider to be a waste of time. Maybe at some point in time we'll have the capability to filter...

It has also been the scene of periodic wars between the Colorado River and volcanic eruptions that dammed the river, then burst. New airborne elevation survey data and radioisotope dating of Grand Canyon lava flows sheds new light on the battle between water and molten rocks there over the past 725,000 years.

  • Will FR embrace socialism to make way for Rudy Giuliani as a Republican presidential candidate?

    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...

    In old times of Europe, a bishop declared that Earth is the center of the universe and asked all the people to believe. We have this kind of things repeatedly happened through history. Does he need to decide if Earth is the center of universe? He does not have to determine something that he does not know. Now, somebody says human life with spirit starting when an egg combing with a sperm and dwelling in a womb. Nobody knows when a human life with spirit really starts. Nonetheless, we do know the benefit of the mother and the baby. We...

    Battle of the Titans Two giants fight to the bitter end, neither giving up or backing down to defend. How will history and art remember this battle of battles? With all their passion they strike at each other, wielding their mighty swords into their flesh, to destroy their spirits and hurl each other into hellish depths. No mortal can survive their mighty blows, no one can overcome their mighty voices, which render spirits assunder. For days and days it goes on, battle upon battle, death upon death. Neither side yielding to avoid defeat. Their passion is all that keeps them...

I have discovered a disturbing trend at DU however that may or may not also be true here. In the past week or so the type of articles and information posted has become rather strange. There seems to be daily if not hourly postings of obviously false stories with links to very questionable web sites. I will admit right off that there are things about FR that I dont like, but I have seen posts and information that most...

    A small town in Indiana and a brief filed saying that Roe v.

This is, of course, by White House design for the public understanding of Judge Roberts. Bush has exhibited his recurrent traits and examining G.W. Bush right now is the only way to know what really is in the heart of Judge Roberts. Roberts is deliberately without much record. He is deliberately congenial and with friends all around. He...

    04/05/2005 10:50:57 AM PDT · by Sammy sam · 153 replies · 8,234+ views
    Many argue that communism will never be possible because of "human nature". The essence of this false argument is the belief that a communist society would consist of an all-powerful central government that would tell everybody what to do--and would therefore undermine the creative initiative of individuals and the search for happiness. • This argument is based on two false assumptions: (1) It assumes that a communist society will look like the former Soviet Union, or the current China, North Korea, etc (ie: corrupt police states with a feudal-style ruling class) (2) It assumes that people will only work in...

The agency wanted these journalists not only to...

    If you, gentlemen, really want “to see US politics from another angle”, compare it with politics of present-day totalitarian regimes in Central Asia, for instance. And you’ll realize that there are practically no differences for our “democratic” state and e.g. authoritarian government in Turkmenistan. It’s common knowledge that Turkmen authorities abridge liberty of speech, freedom of the press, exercising control over mass and I-net. They bow down, imposing restrictions on freedom of association and assembly, in order to curtail political activity of non-governmental organizations, including groups of religious minorities. Nijazov does it with the aim of exercising control over latitude...

A dismissed Erlich staffer appears to imply that the mayor may be hiding possible indiscretions involving his personal life, i.e. marital infidelities. While it is the case that this implication has reached only the rumor stage,it is an effort to raise questions concerning the mayor's honesty and integrity. Some people may develop the impression that the mayor may not be suitable to hold the job of Maryland's governor, should he decide to run for the position in 2006. I think Gov....

    Feature Death in Texas By Sister Helen Prejean 1. In the twenty-first century, a state governor represents the last vestige of the "divine right of kings," because he has absolute power over life and death— especially when such power is entrusted to politicians motivated more by expediency than by conscience. Faced with a pending execution, no governor wants to appear callous about human life. So governors appoint pardons boards and meet with legal counselors, who take the political heat for controversial cases. All governors claim to agonize over death penalty decisions. All claim to scrutinize every possible angle of the...

Imagine that back at the time, scientists in another galaxy had been searching the cosmos for life and discovered our solar system and Earth. So they park their spaceship above the Rift Valley in Africa and gaze at the vast expanse of lush forests, plains teeming with wildebeest, zebras, elephants and gazelles and rivers filled with hippos, crocs and flamingoes. Those extragalactic scientists would no doubt notice small family groups of a two-legged, upright, furless ape but I doubt that anyone would point to them...
