  • I am done, whatever (VANITY)

    03/02/2014 3:13:23 PM PST · by aft_lizard · 441 replies
    I am done. This site has broken me. I am as staunch a conservative as you will find. After returning from Iraq, injured and upset, I turned here and found a welcoming community that shared my thoughts. I am a proud Gadsden Flag waiving man of the Tea Party movement. But because I don't think Sarah Palin is as historically important as other GOP women in the past, I am now considered an idiot, a RINO, ass-kisser and whatever negative connotation you can throw my way. This site has changed so much since that dictator want to be became President...
  • Get ready for a Perry comeback

    Rightly Concerned ^ | 11-28-2011 | Bryan Fischer
    November 28, 2011 Get ready for a Perry comeback By Bryan Fischer Newt is the current flavor of the month in the GOP race for the presidential nomination, and grabbed a coup in New Hampshire with the endorsement of the Union-Leader. However, Newt has enough baggage with enough rocks in it to drag him below surface again. His amnesty stance on immigration puts him to the left of Perry on that issue, and we now know he took $1.8 million from Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac right when they were dragging the housing industry to the bottom of the sea....

    Will Romney’s Lawn Workers Sink His Candidacy? Alec MacGillisOctober 19, 2011Well, this much is clear: Rick Perry's campaign takes its cues from this blog, which just a few days ago asked in a headline, "Time for Perry to Bring up Mitt's lawn care?" Apparently, it was time. The question that came to my mind as that remarkable fracas last night was occurring was: could this turn into Mitt Romney's driver's license moment? Hillary Clinton was sailing along on an aura of inevitability in the fall of 2007, acing the debates much as Romney has done, when she found herself ganged up in a Philadelphia debate over her ambiguous...

    (CBS/AP)  JACKSON, Ga. - Georgia executed Troy Davis on Wednesday night for the murder of an off-duty police officer, a crime he denied committing right to the end as supporters around the world mourned and declared that an innocent man was put to death. Defiant to the end, he told relatives of Mark MacPhail that his 1989 slaying was not his fault. "I did not have a gun," he insisted.

    President Obama has had, by general consent, a torrid First Fortnight. To put it another way, it has taken precisely two weeks for the illusion that brought him to power to be exposed for the nonsense that it so obviously was. The transformational candidate who was going to sweep away pork-barrel politics, lobbyists and corruption has been up to his neck in sleaze, as eviscerated here by Charles Krauthammer. Despite the fact that he came to power promising to ‘ban all earmarks’, his ‘stimulus’ bill represents billions of dollars of special-interest tax breaks, giveaways and protections -- which have nothing...

    Keep to forgiveness (O Mohammed), and enjoin kindness, and turn away from the ignorant. The Koran, Chapter 7, Verse 199 During his lifetime, Prophet Mohammed endured insults and ridicule on a daily basis. His opponents mocked his message and used physical violence to stop him from challenging the status quo. At no stage during this ordeal did the Prophet lose his temper or react to these provocations. Tradition has it that he would, instead, offer a prayer of forgiveness to those who showed contempt for him. Today, however, many followers of Prophet Muhammad are acting the exact opposite. Reacting to...

    Pope John Paul II's death prompted a remarkable outpouring of grief and respect, not just from Roman Catholics but from admirers of all faiths. The throngs that brought parts of Rome to a standstill paid homage to a man who helped bring freedom to his native Poland, traveled tirelessly to more than 120 nations and inspired young people to maintain their faith. He was among the notable people who died in 2005. So, too, was Rosa Parks, whose history-making achievement played out one evening in 1955 on a segregated bus in Montgomery, Ala., when she refused to give up her...

The Chinchorro mummies are the oldest known artificially preserved dead, dating thousands of years before Egyptian mummies, and the life quest of the archeologists who study them is to discover why this early...
  • PROPOSAL: A Katrina collaborative timeline

    vanity ^ | September 14, 2005 | George Smiley
    Here's what I'm suggesting: There appears to be a need for a definitive timeline with respect to Katrina and who did and said what when. Things get particularly confusing because of the short timeframe referenced in most newspaper and magazine articles- someone pointed out to me that an article said "last Friday", and two Fridays had passed since the beginning of events, so the reference became vague. And, given the number of Freepers, if a bunch of us pitch in and "walk back the cat" so to speak, a timeline ought to be constructable in relatively short order. The only...

He was a real cat." We talk a lot in our movement about spiritual practices. I am a Religious Science Practitioner; the root word of Practitioner is practice. But why do we practice?

  • Senate Nearly Done With Energy Agenda (Ya'shur, yu'betcha, Uh huh!)

    AP on Yahoo ^ | 6/23/05 | H. Josef Hebert - AP
    WASHINGTON - The Senate neared completion of a sweeping national energy agenda late Thursday that would promote conservation and environmentally friendly fuels. But senators rejected a last-minute bid to substantially raise automobile fuel economy over the next decade. The massive energy bill, which was essentially completed but awaits a final vote next Tuesday, contrasts with a bill more favorable to oil and gas producers and approved by the House in April. If the Senate, as expected, passes the bill next week, it will set the stage for difficult, possibly lengthy negotiations with the House later this summer. "It's going to...

Griffin was confirmed 95-0 and McKeague 96-0, both for seats on the 6th Circuit Court of Appeals in Cincinnati. ''These three nominees...

    San Diegans have the dubious distinction of living in a state whose own serious financial problems will likely make the city's even worse. Last year, we cited most of the same problems California is facing again in this new year. In the spirit of a New Year's holiday, maybe it's time we resolve to finally do something about them. On the state level, our problems are enormous, but not insurmountable. They range from the budget deficit, now estimated to be about $8.1 billion, to the need to invest in the state's future – in schools, roads and mass transit, in...

    GREEN BAY, Wis. — John Kerry accused President Bush (search) on Tuesday of trying to cover up bad decisions and alluded to the possibility that there's still bad news yet to be uncovered. "Mr. President, what else are you being silent about? What else are you keeping from the American people?" Kerry said during a speech in Green Bay, referring to the estimated 380 tons of highly explosive material that have gone missing from an arms depot in Iraq. Although Kerry and the Democrats are blaming the Bush administration for losing the ammo, calling it "one of the great blunders"...

Work on the well by Spain's Repsol YPF (Madrid:REP.MC - News) began in June and captured the attention of the industry and governments due to its potential economic and political consequences.

    In his latest election-year stunt to undermine the Bush administration -- and our national resolve to finish the job in Iraq -- John Kerry has launched a petition calling for the resignation of Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld. Kerry claims that Secretary Rumsfeld should be held personally responsible for the actions of a few soldiers in Iraq's Abu Ghraib prison who humiliated a group of the captive terrorists in their search for "actionable intelligence." This is the same John F. Kerry, by the way, who has alternately employed claims of his Vietnam wartime heroism and wartime criminality to catapult himself...

"I've always had faith in our system of justice, and I do believe justice was done here today," said Kelly. "As I've said before, I am confident that when all the facts are brought out, people will see that I'm no criminal." Kelly, who was at home in Chicago when the Florida judge issued his ruling, got news...
