    Under pressure from the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency (which regulates national banks), the Federal Reserve, the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation, and the Office of Thrift Supervision, some national banks will soon be increasing minimum monthly credit card payments so they are closer to 4% rather than the current average of around 2%. Some major banks have already increased the minimum payments and others are about to follow suit.

    The relentless (and intellectually dishonest) Bush-43 bashing can arguably be said to have led to the “market-acceptability” of a film released to “Western” audiences depicting a sitting President’s assassination! This atavistic brand of populist politics has proven dangerous throughout history and should not be tolerated as acceptable political discourse within a free society. More, talk of impeaching Bush serves no purpose other than to incite the violent lunatic fringe comprised of neo-Nazis and other white-supremacist groups that currently dot the landscape of our Nations interior. It should be evident to sober observers that these home-grown fringe groups are actively seeking...

    So the “Religion of Peace” has declared Jihad against the Pope and the Catholic Church because the Pope quoted a 14th century conversation (at a lecture he was giving in his native Germany) between a Christian leader and a Moslem leader during the Crusades and the siege of Constantinople. The 14th century Christian effectively told his contemporary that Mohammed has brought nothing but pain (evil) to the world by virtue of using war to proselytize Islam. In response to this statement from the Pope; the “Religion of Peace” has declared war on all-things Catholic. At the very least they DEMAND...

    PHOENIX (Reuters) - U.S. border agents arrested a Marine deserter wanted for the last 40 years as he drove into California from Mexico, the Customs and Border Protection agency said on Friday. ADVERTISEMENT Officers checking 63-year-old Victor Aguirre's car and papers at the busy San Ysidro border crossing near San Diego discovered there was a felony warrant issued by the Marines outstanding against him since 1966, during the Vietnam War. Aguirre would likely be taken to Camp Pendleton, a Marine base north of San Diego, and be discharged without facing formal charges, the San Diego Union-Tribune quoted a Marine spokesman...

    First, Newsweek pulled a Dan Rather on us, running a fabricated story just because they wanted it to be true. They told the world that an American guard at the Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, detention center had ripped pages from a prisoner's Koran and flushed it down a toilet. As a result, innocent people died when practitioners of Islam rioted in protest in Afghanistan. Oops, said Newsweek, it seems we can't back up our story. Oh well, it's probably true; we just can't prove it. (Isn't it convenient for Newsweek that the media now have "Deep Throat" to talk about so...

    Appearing after Burkha Murtha's comments to the President's WOT speech this afternoon, CNN Political Analyst Candy Crowley was surprisingly sharp in her fair and balanced analysis of the Democratic response to the speech. When asked by bathroom queen Kyra Phillips for her opinion on the speech and the Dem response, eye Candy said the Dems continue to have the problem of not having any credible response, nor a plan to fight terrorism. She repeated some of Burkha's angry comments, and said it showed that apart from angry rhetoric denouncing the President, the Dems have nothing to offer.

Kennedy International Airport as he attempted to board a flight while in possession of a ruler, a protractor, a set square, a slide rule, and a calculator. At a morning press conference, Attorney General Alberto Gonzales said he believes the man is a member of the notorious Al-Gebra movement. He did not identify the man, who has been charged by the FBI with carrying "weapons of math instruction." "Al-gebra is a problem for us," Gonzales said.

    Palestinian Terrorists Fire on Children, AP Obfuscates This is a great example of how appallingly corrupt the wire services have become in their reporting from Palestinian areas, relying on Palestinian journalists and editors who are doing the bidding of terrorist groups and covering up atrocities.

Think about that. They used live fire against a crowd of children. But the Associated Press headline for the story is deliberately worded to be...

    EVERY few years, California lawmakers take aim at term limits, which have swept out the Sacramento fossils who held office for decades, ushering in fresh faces and more minorities. Legislators hate term limits. They want to cling to six-figure jobs, full staffs, fat per diem expense accounts and personal prestige that few lawmakers could ever earn in private life. Journalists who cover politics hate term limits. They must cozy up to a new bunch of lawmakers every time the old bunch is forced out. They have to develop new sources and — horrors! — update their Rolodexes. Both the pols...

    We Freepers have long and often speculated about the whereabouts of Saddam’s missing WMDs, and the frequently-opined location is “somewhere in the Bekaa Valley” in either Syria or Syrian-controlled Lebanon. The obvious reason to move them “somewhere” was to avoid detection in the face of the pending US invasion, in order to deny their existence and to preserve them for another day and another time. But why the Bekaa? Syria controlled the Bekaa, and Syria maintained strategic relationships with both Saddam and Iran. It seems unlikely that Saddam would have put his WMDs in the hands of Iran’s proxies directly,...

William French Anderson, known to many in the competitive world of genetic research as "French", entered the annals of medicine in 1990 when he led a team that successfully implanted missing genes into the blood of a 3-year-old girl, enabling her recovery from a rare, hereditary disease. But yesterday the 69-year-old was found guilty of four counts of abuse towards the 10-year-old daughter of a research scientist who worked in his laboratory at the University of...

    There are those on the left who have criticized President Bush for, among other things, what they characterize as an overly aggressive anti-terror policy that has helped recruit more terrorists. The renewed attacks by Hamas and Hezbollah over the past several weeks, following enormous concessions and withdrawal by Israel, and the behind-the-scenes maneuvering of Iran and Syria, make it plain that our response to fundamentalist Islamic terror, far from being too aggressive, has been much too restrained. I do not defend the decision to elevate Iraq above other threats in 2003, nor have I ever agreed with Secretary Rumsfeld's decision...

    AP reports that “120 Americans leave Lebanon by helicopter.” This means the U.S. will need approximately 209 days to evacuate all 25,000 Americans stranded in Lebanon. I did the calculation: 208 days is Mid-February of next year. After reading the headline and writing the above, I read in the report, “By the end of the week, the evacuation will proceed at a pace of 1,000 Americans a day.” This gives us 20-plus days to see the Americans evacuated. In comparison to Katrina, the numbers are not bad, not bad at all. http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20060718/ap_on_re_mi_ea/mideast_evacuation

    A Dutch court refused Monday to ban a political party whose main goal is to lower the age of sexual consent from 16 to 12. The judge said it was the voters' right to judge the appeal of political parties. The party has only three known members, one of whom was convicted of molesting an 11-year-old boy in 1987. Widely dubbed the "pedophile" party, it is unlikely ever to win a seat in parliament. The group would need around 60,000 votes, and pollsters estimate it would get fewer than 1,000.

    IF ANN COULTER didn't exist, someone would have to invent her. She's the perfect creature for the ethereal planet of Infotainment, a realm where fact hardly exists, compassion is a yawn, civility is a bore, and the national anthem is "another opening, another show." Coulter's comments criticizing the 9/11 widows were everywhere in the media recently. But it's sometimes hard to figure out whether she's a spoof segment on "The Daily Show," a sitcom character too caricatured to exist in the world that isn't composed of electrons dashing to and fro, or a latter-day Father Coughlin, who spreads hate like...

    "Republican in the dictionary comes just after ‘reptile’ and just before ‘repugnant,’" actress Julia Roberts insightfully observed to the delight of the Radio City Music Hall crowd at the September 14 (2000) DNC fundraisier for Gore-Lieberman. That was just one of several liberal pro-Gore and anti-conservative pronouncements made by actors and actresses." * * * * * * * * * * * *
  • Nationwide Rally against Open Borders and support of our troops

    In a period of time where our country is splitting in the middle, our soldiers are fighting perhaps the most brutal evil of all time, the border is being opened and our national security is being compromised! We the people own this country, yet the silent majority, if there is one is too silent. How do we organize a national rally so that our gutless coward Senators and President can see that they are making the wrong decisions? How do we get coverage so that the march is broadcasted all over? How is it that the Communist/Socialist people, who are...
  • Information about the Israeli Air Force

    OK, this is a personal thread, and I would like some feedback about the Israeli Air Force. I got into it the other day in the chow hall with a guy who refused to believe the US Air Force is stronger than the Israeli Air Force. I understand the IAF uses their own radar systems and they are battle hardened, and yes, some of our pilots are trained by Israeli pilots. But one cannot refuse to admit that US pilots are is a league of their own as well. If anyone could shed some light on this for me it...

    Well, it seems as if the rank and file elitist Country Club Republicans are flexing their muscles in the High Desert, not to mention down the hill, too, when it comes to who backs whom for the 59th assembly district race and why. When it comes to the two most likely frontrunners in the Victor Valley—encompassing Hesperia and Apple Valley—longtime GOP grass-roots crusader and people’s champion, Barry Hartz, versus government bureaucracy insider and recipient of Supervisor (San Bernardino County First District) Postmus’ back-scratching political favors, Anthony Adams, the battle lines have clearly been drawn and it’s easy to see, when...

    Ok friends, It seems I've irked a Muslim in Britain with one of my postings somewhere. I received quite a scolding via e-mail from a gentleman who is certain the media distorts the truth about Islam, Muslims, etc... After reading through the rant, I thought it would be a great opportunity to see if I could actually have a dialog about the wonderful "Religion of Peace" (this, after reading about how I'll think differently once they come for me). Instead of a flame war with him, I'm going to actually see if he has any answers about some things in...
