    Loving Soul To Spend Time With Our Daughter Manchester, CT 06042 Occasional (as needed) Hi there, my daughter will be turning 4 in August. We've never really had a babysitter for her, other than my parents, but I am feeling like it would be really nice to have another person or 2 we could call upon to watch her when we have plans, events, etc that come up. Here's a bit about us: I am an artist & living food chef. I also teach classes and do consults. Her dad does freelance film work, so his schedule is different every...
  • Public Univ. Creates Special Illegal Alien Tuition Rate (CO)

    Judicial Watch ^ | June 14, 2012
    A special category of tuition created this month for illegal immigrants at a public university in Colorado violates both federal and state law, Judicial Watch points out in a letter to the school’s Board of Trustees. Therefore JW is calling for the immediate rescinding of the measure, which enables certain unlawfully present aliens to attend the taxpayer-funded school, Metropolitan State College of Denver, without having to pay full non-resident tuition. “In approving this new category of tuition, the College recognized that these students would otherwise be required to pay full non-resident tuition because of their inability to demonstrate lawful presence...
  • The Euro's Collapse Is Not Just About the Euro (It's about the entire liberal, elitist worldview)

    How do you say Schadenfreude in French? Or Spanish? Or Greek? Because, three years into the failed economic policies of a failed president, Schadenfreude -- knowing that, however bad our situation may be, the state of affairs in the Eurozone is much worse -- is all that is left to us. And it is worse, make no mistake about that. And, it increasingly appears, irreversible. Which is why those of us who saw this day coming must resist the urge to gloat now that the poulets européens have come home to roost. Let us instead, let out a sigh of...

    While life expectancy in many parts of the United States is dropping, it has increased by 10 years in Manhattan since 1987. Researchers largely attribute that rise — the fastest in the nation — to a crackdown by the New York City health department on unhealthy behaviors. Manhattanites can now expect to live to the ripe old age of 82, and the average life expectancy across all five New York City boroughs is 80.6 years. That's three years beyond the national average, and a striking turnaround since the city's low point in 1990, when life expectancy there trailed the U.S....

I mean when you think about it, it’s bombs bursting in air rocket’s red glare it all kinds of, you know a lot of national anthems are that way, all kinds of military jargon and the land there’s only one phrase ‘the land of the free’ which is kind of nice and ‘the home of the brave?’ I don’t know.

  • Media Hypes 'Self-Marriage'

    The media crusade to redefine marriage has taken a radical turn. Media outlets have put a spotlight on the narcissistic practice of “self-marriage,” in which a person marries himself or herself in a formal ceremony.

    Yet I hold this against you: You have forsaken your first LOVE. Rev 2:4 Small wonder liberals are such miserable people. To spend your entire life trying to earn your way into heaven when there is no possible chance of earning it brings hopelessness. According to the church of liberalism you have to accept and practice all the liberal doxology to become a truly good person. Being a good person to a liberal means you have to be more liberal and tolerant than those intolerant Conservatives. This is why you end up with people always being frustrated and angry from...

    It was while I was driving from Florida, where I gave a presentation on education to citizens, that I heard from talk show hosts about the abuse by North Carolina High School social studies teacher Tanya Dixon-Neely towards a student who dared to challenge her diatribe about Mitt Romney’s alleged “bullying” incident from 1965. In response to the student’s reference to Barack Obama’s own admission in his book of having shoved a girl, the teacher yelled that students can be arrested for disrespecting President Obama. “President” (King?) Obama was beyond criticism to Dixon-Neely, unlike “candidate” Mitt Romney. The confusion of...

    The other day, I called a friend and interrupted her mid-cry. She'd just returned from putting her only son on a plane to China, where he was moving after giving up on getting a job here. The next day in the supermarket, I bumped into another friend, looking downcast. She told me her only son was planning his move to Hong Kong, after a fruitless year-long search for a job in the financial sector. "Obama's destroying the economy," she told me; then she looked nervously around at our hyper-Blue State neighbors. "I feel like I have to whisper, or they're...

    When a big lie is repeated often enough and becomes “truth,” there can be serious consequences. For reality is like a jigsaw puzzle: If too many pieces (little pictures) are wrong, you’ll never be able to assemble them and see the big picture. The result is dislocation from reality. What follows are 10 big lies that have gained currency — and the actual truth behind them. 1. Pope Pius XII was a Nazi Collaborator According to Rabbi David Dalin in his book The Myth of Hitler’s Pope, Pius saved at least 800,000 Jews from extermination at the hands of the...

    Coach is Right ^ | 5/16/2012 | Doug Book
    Recent weeks have seen ombudsmen at both the New York Times and the Washington Post defend their respective newspapers from charges of journalistic bias and a deep-seated, enduring slant to the political left. Described as “trusted [intermediaries] between…an organization and some…external constituency,” it is the job of New York Times ombudsman Arthur Brisbane and the Post’s Patrick Pexton to represent “the broad scope of constituent interests” by seeking to present readers with facts and straightforward, impartial reporting. (1) Of course anyone with a sense of humor—or any sense at all—will get a real kick out of claims of straightforward and...

    It has become clear for some time that there is no limit to which a leftist will go in there attempt to control mankind from the cradle to the grave. Even the fear of voter backlash in an election year does not seem to slow them down any longer. Why else would Obama come out of the closet in full support of same sex marriage, at the same time that California Democrats are attempting to criminalize a parent's influence upon their child's sexual orientation. Passing through the California Senate Judiciary committee by a vote of 3-1, SB 1172 is...

    Delaware Attorney General Beau Biden says he’s proud of his father, Vice President Joe Biden, and President Barack Obama for saying gay people should have the right to marry. In an e-mail to supporters Saturday, Beau Biden says allowing same-sex marriage is a question of civil rights and equality. He says “marriage discrimination” results in the government telling people who to love and that denying equal rights is wrong. …

    This article is a modified version of the main page at http://www.anonymousconservative.com. On the site, we are also promoting a book, examining how our two political ideologies evolved, and all of the science supporting this mechanism. Here on FR, I wanted this post to provide the relevant information from the site, so that Freepers might look it over, and these concepts might begin to enter the realm of political science. I have deleted all the references to the book here, so as to not seem as if I am spamming. In truth, if you pull the free paper that is...

    About 22 percent of California's eighth-graders tested on a national science test passed, ranking the Golden State among the worst in the nation, according to figures released Thursday. Scores from the 2012 National Assessment of Educational Progress, also known as the Nation's Report Card, show that too few students have the skills that could lead to careers in the field, educators said. http://www.ocregister.com/news/students-353581-state-scores.html

    Between things like Anita Dunn’s professed love for Mao Tse-Tung and the not-controversy surrounding the president’s new campaign slogan (“Forward!”), we suspect White House staffers are getting awfully tired of responding to questions about whether the Obama administration employs at least a few communist-sympathizing officials. Rick Bookstaber, who currently serves on President Obama’s Financial Stability Oversight Council, may have just kicked off another round of these questions. Writing on his personal blog Monday, Boosktaber posted a refutation of conservative author Tucker Carlson’s claim that, by repeatedly singling out the “wealthy,” Democrats are waging “class warfare.” “There is little that matches...

    Infantile. The characteristics of a baby or child, says Webster's. Being infantile is a charming characteristic -- in a baby or child. In adults? Adults charged with the serious responsibility of discussing or actually running public policy? Never good. As seen here in this story about Occupy Wall Street, replete with photo of a protester defecating on a police car. R. Emmett Tyrrell, Jr. has been observing and writing about this kind of ludicrous behavior that he terms the "Infantile Left" for some 40-plus years through the magazine that he created and you are reading, The American Spectator.
