  • Found Hibernating Bat, Help!

    12/10/2010 12:25:43 PM PST · by RadiationRomeo · 62 replies · 29+ views
    I heard a strange sound as I was cleaning up a shed, and it was a hibernating bat. I need to move it. It is attached to the side of a sheet of OSB that I could carry to some other place. This is Ohio and its fairly cold. It is not heated where I found it. I could move it to another barn. I thought Ohio bats went south for the winter. Anyways, will it survive if I tote the sheet of OSB to a protected, but not heated, section of a barn? I could knock it off the...

    Senate Conservative Fund ^ | 11-5-10 | Jim DeMint
    Dear Fellow Conservative: Joe Miller, the Republican nominee for U.S. Senate in Alaska, needs our help. He's in the race of his life against Senator Lisa Murkowski who ran as a independent write-in candidate after losing the Republican primary. With the race still too close to call, there are still tens of thousands of ballots that haven't been counted and there will be a recount to verify the integrity of the write-in ballots. Joe Miller can win this race but he's up against a well-financed legal team that is working for Lisa Murkowski. They will be fighting to bend the...

    Conservative Recount Alert! — Etheridge Asks for Recount by renee on November 4, 2010 in Campaign Announcements Dear Supporters, Election night, after the ten counties in my district had reported their votes, I led Bob Etheridge by 2,100 votes. (That number is crucial because under North Carolina law Congressman Etheridge is not entitled to an ‘automatic recount’ if he trails by more than 1% – or 1,888 votes.) Then, yesterday afternoon – unexpectedly – the vote totals changed. The State Board of Elections reported my lead had dropped to 1,600 votes. Two hours later Bob Etheridge announced he intended...

    The following e-mail arrived in my mailbox this morning from taxpayer-supported PBS — home of Obama sycophant and drool bucket-carrier David Brooks and Palin-basher/Obama cheerleader Gwen Ifill. Yep, the government media that has spent the last two years promoting the progressive agenda and sought a $550 million taxpayer bailout to push social justice activism now wants conservative bloggers to help publicize their election night coverage. Michelle, I wanted to send out a note to invite you to participate – even embed – the PBS NewsHour’s online-only live show tomorrow night (starting at 10 p.m. EST). It’s the first time we...

    This is a horrible case and should not be watched by the faint of heart as it contains multiple acts of animal cruelty (albeit graphic, it is not bloody). LiveLeak (or the person posting it) asked for any help. This gal probably has a FaceBook, or someone knows her. My site links out to the video. This young girl effectively drowns a litter of puppies.

    Fellow Freepers this isn't a drill or a joke. This is real life, life or death. Any advise you have I need. First the short version. My wife of 2 months and high school sweetheart came out of an abusive marriage of 13 years. The ex-husband is like no other person I have ever witnessed with regard to his manipulative and mentally abusive behavior towards his ex, my wife, and their 2 girls, 5 and 9 years old. Not to mention every single solitary person with whom he acquaints himself has the very same story. But before I give detail,...

    WASHINGTON (AP) - The government is taking what President Barack Obama calls "a long overdue step" to aid veterans with post-traumatic stress disorder, making it easier for them to receive federal benefits. The changes that Veteran Affairs Secretary Eric Shinseki will announce Monday fulfill "a solemn responsibility to provide our veterans and wounded warriors with the care and benefits they've earned when they come home," Obama said in his weekly radio and online address Saturday. The new rules will apply not only to veterans of the Iraq and Afghanistan wars, but also those who served in previous conflicts.

    Washington Post ^ | 5 July 2010 | Chris Cillizza
    To become the nation's first black president, Barack Obama not only won heavy percentages of the black and Hispanic vote but also managed to trim the Democratic Party's traditional deficit among white voters. Four years after Sen. John F. Kerry (D-Mass.) lost the white vote by 17 percentage points, Obama lost it by 12, according to exit polls. While the 2008 gains were generally attributed to Obama's strength with young voters -- he won by 10 points among whites 18 to 29 years old -- he managed to improve on Kerry's showing with white voters across every age demographic.

    Do an experiment for me. Take a balloon, inflate it. Get two books and place one on each side of the balloon opposite each other. Now deflate the balloon and notice what happens to the books. The books shift towards each other. The massive pressurized oil and methane reserve now blowing out south of the Louisiana coast is just like a the deflating balloon. As this reserve empties a huge cavern is being created under the gulf floor. Usually these caverns are back filled with seawater as the oil is removed to stop a catastrophic collapse and make extracting the...

    WASHINGTON, July 1, 2010 – Two years ago, Army Pfc. Ted Bonham suppressed his self-described “horrible phobia of needles” and participated in a routine blood drive with his reserve unit in Knoxville, Tenn. He couldn’t have guessed then how big that gesture of generosity would become. When the technician asked if Bonham and his buddies from the 489th Civil Affairs Battalion would have their cheeks swabbed to possibly become bone marrow donors -- with the comment that they probably would never be called -- Bonham was the only one to come forward. Today the 20-year-old is undergoing a procedure at...

    WASHINGTON, June 16, 2010 – Afghan civilians helped police to repel an attack by an estimated 50 Taliban fighters against a police checkpoint in Afghanistan’s Daykundi province June 14, military officials reported. Ten national police officers manning a checkpoint in Kajran came under heavy small-arms and rocket fire just after noon and called for support. About 250 civilians gathered with personal assault rifles and, along with police reinforcements and International Security Assistance Force aircraft, forced the Taliban fighters to retreat. U.S. Special Forces soldiers responded and provided medical aid to injured Afghan policemen at the request of the Kajran district...
