    Viewers from "across the pond" are watching with keen interest, as the elemental struggle between Republican politicians and the public sector unions is played out. With, on the one hand, a sense of "déjà vu", and on the other, a feeling that, for once, the old country is in better shape, British observers can see clearly the similarities in circumstances, but also the (primarily legal) differences, between our two countries. The first obvious parallel between the British and US trade union movements is their almost complete colonization by the Left. Starting in the 1960s, unions in both countries increasingly came...

    Disturbing news continues to trickle out from Norte de Venezuela, the state formally known as Wisconsin. Despite the best efforts of the MSM to embargo information concerning the shockingly bad behavior of thousands of public employee union members, more ominous information has come to light. From the Pierce County Herald on March 14th, 2011 we read of the uncivil reception Governor Walker received before a speech to a GOP Lincoln Day fundraiser in Washburn. WASHBURN - Wisconsin's protracted family fight over the budget and public employee unions moved to this Bayfield County town Saturday evening, as embattled Gov. Scott Walker...

    (IsraelNN.com) Despite the EU Parliament's vote Wednesday to legalize “shechita,” the Jewish method of humane animal slaughter is still very much in danger. It was reported on Thursday that the European Jewish Community “hailed” the European Parliament’s vote to legalize the traditional Jewish method of slaughter into European law. However, it was later clarified that in fact, the Parliament only has consultative status in this case, and that the European Union’s Council of Agricultural Ministers will have the final say when it convenes next month. "During the original debate on this issue in Norway, one of the parliamentarians said straight...

    Rocked by Aids, Zulu kingdom now faces even worse foe: incurable TB Doctors fear fresh fight with South African health chiefs for cash to battle new strain Chris McGreal and Tugela Ferry Wednesday September 13, 2006 The Guardian (UK) The first clue to the hidden killer stalking villages in the Zulu kingdom revealed itself at a small rural hospital long besieged by epidemics. Doctors at the Church of Scotland hospital in Tugela Ferry were already grappling with the onslaught of Aids and its partner in death, tuberculosis. But some relief appeared to be in sight when, after years of criticism...

    WASHINGTON, Jan. 25, 2006 – Catherine McCarthy, a Navy submariner's wife, has a solution for keeping life normal for her three children despite challenges a military family faces. Nothing about everyday life changes, she said, whether her husband, Petty Officer 1st Class Matt McCarthy, is at sea or home. The nuclear electrician's mate has been in the Navy for 11 years. "'Steady' - that's my key word," McCarthy said. "What works for us is to stay solid and stay on the same steady path. When he comes home our philosophy has always been that he fits back into the family."...

    Weather gets even weirder By Philip Eden (Filed: 21/01/2006) On the face of it, the catalogue of extraordinary weather events culled from around the world during the last year suggests that the global climate is in turmoil. But do a clutch of catastrophes and a ragbag of records represent anything unusual? Moscow: A man ventures out as temperatures reach minus 30 Climatologists look for evidence of underlying change and are particularly interested in events which are clearly outside previous experience. We should remember that we live in a world where natural disasters can be brought to our television screens as...

    AP) A Democratic state legislator announced Tuesday she has quit the party, leaving the Maine House evenly split between Democrats and Republicans. Rep. Barbara Merrill's defection will give the two major parties 73 seats each when the 2006 session opens on Wednesday. Merrill becomes one of four unenrolled or independent members. One Green Party member also serves in the 151-seat chamber. The Democrats have held a majority in the Maine House for three decades, except for a brief period in 1996 when the Republicans gained the edge. The Democrats maintain control of the state Senate, with 19 of the 35...
  • Even with best record, White Sox run second in Second City

    CHICAGO (AP) -- The Chicago White Sox are the best team in the majors, with no idea what second place is like this year. They're a likable, entertaining bunch, and their manager is one of the most colorful in the game. Anywhere else, they'd be the toast of the town, adored by casual fans and diehards alike. But the White Sox are the second team in the Second City, consistently underappreciated while their neighbors on the North Side are showered with love no matter how dismal their record. ``It's always been that way,'' said Bill Hyde, 68, a lifelong White...

    Clinton's Popularity Up in State, Even Among Republicans By RAYMOND HERNANDEZ Published: February 22, 2005 Remember Hillary Rodham Clinton and the conventional wisdom about how polarizing a figure she is? Well, think again. Recent polls have shown that Mrs. Clinton, the junior senator from New York, may have turned a corner politically, sharply reducing the number of voters in the state who harbor negative views of her. Pollsters say the change is remarkable for a woman who has long been shadowed by a seemingly implacable group of voters - commonly referred to as Hillary haters - who dislike her, no...

Posting the same message on all the boards defeats the purpose of multiple-boards for special topics. It is very annoying to see the same message on every bulletin board. PLEASE!

    On November 8, 2004, a U.S. federal judge ruled that the Bush administration had improperly ignored the Geneva Conventions in establishing military commissions to try detainees at the Guantánamo Bay U.S. naval base as war criminals. Ted Lapkin's timely article delves into the complexities of the Geneva Conventions, and how much they should apply to the war on terrorism. —The Editors.

I think we Freepers should accept her kind invitation. Here's mine: Dear Anita, Thank you so much for posting this wonderful, life-affirming thread. I was unsure that you would want to post again so soon after all those conservative types suppressed your speech by assaulting you viciously with email. I hope your injuries aren't too severe...
