    Governor will use cornhole to fund campaign Strickland holds games throughout the state and even plays himself By Stephanie Warsmith Beacon Journal staff writer Published on Friday, Jul 04, 2008 Forget the rubber chicken dinners. There's a new game in town: cornhole. And Gov. Ted Strickland has let it be known he will soon hold a cornhole tournament to raise money for his campaign, with regional competitions around Ohio, including one in North Canton. Not familiar with cornhole? It's a bean bag-tossing game that's popular on campuses and at tailgate parties. ''The tournament is a fun way of bringing Ohioans...

    Another amazing piece to the Foley blackmail story. To jump into the middle of the story: we have established that it was Jordan Edmund, the then-18 year old page, now 21-year old political operative, who was the recipient of Rep. Foley's IM lust. Edmund, a gay, 21 year-old college student from San Diego CA, has somehow, mysteriously and inexplicably, managed to get the job of campaign manager for a repub candidate from Oklahoma. Edmund has a companion, also 21 and also from San Diego, working with him on the Oklahoma campaign. I have posited on other posts that these two...

    <p>September 10, 2004 -- THE populist revolu tion against the so- called mainstream media continues. Yesterday, the citizen journalists who produce blogs on the Internet — and their engaged readers — engaged in the wholesale exposure of what appears to be a presidential-year dirty trick against George W. Bush. What the bloggers and their audiences did was call into profound question the authenticity of four documents proudly trumpeted by CBS News in a much-heralded investigative report on Wednesday night's edition of "60 Minutes" about the president's National Guard service in the early 1970s.</p>

    STOCKHOLM, Sweden - It's healthy and tasty, for those with expensive tastes. Farmers in northern Sweden are milking moose and making cheese, which they sell for a lot of dough — nearly $500 a pound. The buyers include upscale hotels and restaurants in Sweden. AP Photo Christer Johansson and his wife, Ulla, started their 59-acre dairy farm "Moose House" seven years ago in Bjursholm, 404 miles north of the capital, Stockholm. They claim it is the only moose dairy farm in Europe. The Johanssons currently have 14 moose in the fields but only three — "Gullan," "Haelga" and "Juna" —...

    WHEN John Knoll created Photoshop in 1989, he knew he was designing an image-editing program that could be used in good ways and bad. But even Mr. Knoll, who wrote the software with his brother, Tom, was unprepared for how outlandish photo manipulation would become. "When we worked on it, mostly we saw the possibilities, the cool things," said Mr. Knoll, 41. "Not how it would be abused." The same tools that can be used to crop, retouch and otherwise edit digital images can be used just as easily to distort, alter and fabricate them. With Photoshop and similar programs...

Many relatively new accounts, or older accounts with previously little or no activity, suddenly coming on and posting negative comments about President Reagan, saying they are lifelong Republicans but no more, and a bunch of other things that could be legitimately held beliefs on their part but when taken in aggregate make it clear that there is quite a bit of trolling action going on.I found the following to be quite illuminating.

    <p>Wherever Administration Moderator went, he was greeted by huge, enthusiastic crowds of cheering people – people as far as the eye could see - reaching out to Administration Moderator and he reaching back at every opportunity. Administration Moderator has got the right stuff, he loved being with the FReepers and the FReepers loved being with Administration Moderator. There is a genuine connection between the Moderator and his message and the FReepers. Administration Moderator could capture the presidency in 2004!</p>

    Harrisburg, Pennsylvania May 8, 2003 For Immediate Release: Long-time Freeper William Wallace announced today that he has no complaints whatsoever about FreeRepublic.
