  • Bill Clinton lets slip that daughter Chelsea is nearing the end of her pregnancy

    The Telegraph ^ | September 22, 2014 | Rosa Prince
    Bill Clinton has let slip that his family are on baby watch after saying that he expected to become a grandparent by the end of the month. The former president gave a substantial clue to his only child Chelsea's due date when he told CNN: "I hope by the first of October, I'll be a grandfather. "I can't wait. We're on watch now," he went on.
  • Should Access to Grandchildren be a Legal Right?

    EmaxHealth ^ | 2013-11-07 | Tamar Najarian
    Grandparents love to spoil their little treasures, a not so well kept secret parents of the child worry about, but they often have absolutely no legal rights to see their grandchildren. There are, however, laws that focus on the "best interest of the child" that a grandparent can utilize to ensure he or she is not denied the right to see their spoiled favorite little people. On the other hand, most times the elder generation is dependent almost fully on the middle generation's good nature and love for parent or mother/father-in-law in order to enjoy the youngest generation of the...

    When Dr. Avram Hershko, 74, a biochemist at the Technion-Israel Institute of Technology in Haifa and a winner of the 2004 Nobel Prize in Chemistry, was recently asked to name the most important fact of his life, he answered: “That I love my three grandchildren. For two, three days every week, I take them to dance class, sport and school. I am completely in their lives.” Among top scientists, responses to such a question might well focus on prizes they’ve won or the import of their research. For Dr. Hershko, whose family was separated and sent to forced labor in...

    When do we, the oppressed, tax-burdened serfs of the Feudal Lords of The Beltway FINALLY stand and deliver the simple NO! that has always caused similar despots to pause in their relentless drive to regulate, control and destroy America? I say the time to do so is immediately after THE NINE SUPREMES approve, in whole, or in part, Obama"care" Law's ruthless nationalization of 1/6 th of America's Economy! What say all of you?

    Now that Obama is continuing to MELTDOWN by giving public speeches to HIMSELF, ( my personal favorite so far, is his recent speech in front of the Congressional Black Caucus ), we here at FR need to turn a larger share of our attention to supporting competent candidates for the US Senate. Our main problem, of course, is the large number of incumbent Senators who are Republican In Name Only ( RINO for you lurkers ) . These RINO Senators are more that willing to do their typical "Bipartisan Cave-In" to "save" ANY Liberal/Socialist bill, but they just might be...

    Professor You Lie, currently on academic leave from the Chicago School of Bureaucratic Socialism, last night arrogantly delivered his usual cookie-cutter Keynesianism Socialist Lecture Number 14.6T to a partial Joint Session of Congress. Judging by the long faces of the assembled Democrats, I sensed an air of defeat. Had their guy thrown in the towel? It was a very tense 32 minutes for them as You Lie brought up the painful subjects of "dismantling the Government," "not raising taxes on anyone during their lifetime," (I guess they could make it retroactive, but I'm not a lawyer), "no more earmarks," and...

    Surrounded by his lap-dogs of the left, Professor You Lie picks up the rough draft of his 9-8-11 speech. It is a tense moment: will authors Porky Pelosi and Reid-in-the-wind hear their words, or the pretty words of You Lie? The silence is deafening! Quickly laying down the rough draft, You Lie says: " People will tell you that I am a "bank-bashing-Bolshevik." If that is the case, then why am I creating the National Infastructure Bank? People will tell you that James Hoffa, Junior yesterday made a speech attacking the Taxed Enough Already Party. That is not what I...

    The forces of Zero's Keynesianism and the tattered remnants of the Free Market proponents meet on 9-8-2011 to hear Zero arrogantly announce how HE plans to buy "jobs" with MY grandchildren's future paychecks. It will be an auspicious occasion I'm sure. Since I plan to watch The Packers whup up on the enemy, I though we could help Ol' Zero improve his " 9-8-jobs-can-wait" speech by including a few things that might, could work, and give us time to watch some FOOTBALL! All the L.I.E. Media wants to talk or write about is what Zero is going to say. At...

    Noted unprofessional economist, Paul Harvey once said, " WHEN YOUR OUTGO EXCEEDS YOUR INCOME, YOUR UPKEEP WILL BE YOUR DOWNFALL. " That was fine back in the day before we had credit cards, but now we know that " Change [ read: Keynesianism ] has come to America.

Well, here we are in September, 2011 and 4,000 billion dollars poorer, and still the basic question remains: Are we better off poor and freed from being "To Big to Fail" like those bad old private companies we...

The morning after I published my post about our daughter Mercy--pointing ahead to our youngest child, Sam--I received a call from our #3 daughter Kayla, who was two days short of her due date. She had gone for what she hoped would be her final pre-natal appointment before the baby arrived...and, oops! The midwife accidentally ruptured her membranes! I love a happy...

    There is a song entitled, “I’ll live in Glory” that is sung at many congregations. Its first line reads “I’d like to stay here longer than man’s allotted days”. The reference is to staying upon the earth. Many people, including myself, have said, “What!” The reason for this response is that we want to go home to God. We are tired of living in a world of sin, jealousies, violence, hatred, and evil. Don’t worry, there is nothing wrong with this response. It reminds me of the words of Peter regarding Lot and his deliverance from Sodom and Gomorrah: •...

    The earliest Mother's Day celebrations can be traced back to the spring celebrations of ancient Greece in honor of Rhea, the Mother of the Gods. During the 1600's, England celebrated a day called "Mothering Sunday". Celebrated on the 4th Sunday of Lent (the 40 day period leading up to Easter*), "Mothering Sunday" honored the mothers of England. During this time many of the England's poor worked as servants for the wealthy. As most jobs were located far from their homes, the servants would live at the houses of their employers. On Mothering Sunday the servants would have the day...

    About four years ago, I became extremely disturbed at overhearing conversations my grandchildren were having at a large family gathering – conversations that were obviously being fueled by poisonous attitudes being inculcated in them about America by their public school teachers. I wrote them a letter as a first step in a campaign to try to undo the harm being done to them and to their country. That letter developed into an e-mail discussion group – and then into a weblog. To read the letter, go to my site and enter the words - to my grandchildren - in the...

    One of the strangest words of the English language has four letters. Somehow it seems more obscene than the rest. The word "free" paints for the reader an idea of something that has no cost. It is a reasonable interpretation, at first glance. Unfortunately, it has also become a well known, and ruthlessly effective tool to seduce the unwary. And the price can be staggering. How many times per day do you hear about this or that being "free"? What is usually meant, is that the costs to everyone involved have been ignored by mutual agreement, and will merit no...

After putting her grandchildren to bed, a grandmother changed into old slacks and a droopy blouse and proceeded to wash her hair. As she heard the children getting more and more rambunctious, her patience grew thin. At last she threw a towel around her head and stormed into their room, putting them back to bed with stern warnings. As she left the room, she heard the three-year-old say with a...

    For my grandson's third birthday, I just couldn't be outdone. Except for having to share the child, being a grandmother is a piece of cake. On this occasion, it was birthday cake, for Binyamin's third birthday. I was never one for running and jumping and working, but all those years when my children were small, that's precisely what I had to do, without end. These days, I sleep through the night, and for this party, I didn't have to clean and bake and organize. All I had to do was show up, with a present to buy me his love,...

    National Debt Tops $7 Trillion By Jonathan Nicholson WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The U.S. government's national debt -- the accumulation of past budget shortfalls -- totaled more than $7 trillion for the first time as of Tuesday, according to a Treasury Department (news - web sites) report. In its daily financial statement released on Wednesday, the Treasury said the U.S. debt subject to a congressionally set limit totaled $7.015 trillion, up from $6.983 trillion on Friday. The government was closed on Monday for the Presidents Day holiday. While passing the $7 trillion mark itself has little practical significance, not unlike a...

    The air is cold, the skies are slate grey, threatening snow but not delivering it. At the end of the year the various networks are doing their retrospectives. The gallery of faces of those who died this year is always part of that. And in his centennial year, Bob Hope was among those. In the last days of the year I prefer to reflect not on what has been lost, but what is valuable and still here. Some engage in such reflection at Thanksgiving. Some, regrettably, never reflect on that. I prefer to meditate on such things at year’s end....
