    Breitbar - Big Government ^ | 8-10-2014 | Matthew Boyle
    (snip) What youve seen with our politics, partly because of gerrymandering, partly because of the Balkanization of media so people just watch what reinforces their deepest biases, partly because of big money in politics, is increasingly politicians are rewarded for taking the most extreme, maximalist positions, Obama told the liberal Times columnist. Sooner or later, that catches up with you. You end up not being able to move forward on things we need to move forward on. We need to reform our immigration system. That would be good not just for our domestic economy but for our position in the...

    Secretary of State John Kerry on Wednesday called National Security Agency leaker Edward Snowden a fugitive and challenged him to "man up and come back to the United States." Kerry was asked about Snowden in a nationally broadcast interview in the wake of an interview in which Snowden said he never intended to be holed up in Russia but was forced to go there because Washington decided to "revoke my passport." Asked about this, Kerry replied on NBC's "Today" show: "Well, for a supposedly smart guy, that's a pretty dumb answer, after all."
  • Should Paid 'Menstrual Leave' Be a Thing?

    For most American women beyond the age of high school gym class, Ive got my period isnt considered much of an excuse for anything. Were meant to pop an Advil and get on with things, Red Devil be damned. But in several, mostly East Asian, countries, so-called menstrual leave is a legally enshrined right for female workers. However, as these countries attempt to move toward greater gender equality in the workplace, menstrual leave has come under debate. Do these policies simply further the notion that women are weak, hormonally-addled creatures controlled by their uteri? Or do they encourage more equality...

    Scott Oak and his husband, Jamie Smith, said they heard Black Diamond Police Chief Jamey Kiblinger use the word "fag" repeatedly. "Cops can talk rough, and I understand things like that, but she used it to personally attack me," said Oak, who was a Black Diamond police officer. He left in 2012. His husband said that he heard Kiblinger use the slur in front of them at a work-related party back in 2011. "When she said that, other officers looked around, and she looked around and she put her hand over her mouth like, Oh my gosh. She knew she...

    Judge Jeanine Pirro hammered the Obama administration tonight over the Obamacare rollout asking are they liars or just incompetent? She told the president that its time to man up, roll up his sleeves and take responsibility because were tired of the blame game. Pirro even highlights that the senior vice president for the company who got the no-bid contract to do the Obamacare website was Michelle Obamas college classmate, noting that this is really all about the money. But more than that, she said with quite a bit of passion that the American people deserve what theyve been promised, that...

    The politically correct multicultural forces are attempting to hold back an angry tide that will ultimately sweep them away: The murder of soldier Lee Rigby has provoked a backlash of anger across the UK, including the attacking of mosques, racial abuse and comments made on social media. Eleven people have been arrested around Britain for making 'racist or anti-religious' comments on Twitter following the brutal killing in Woolwich on Wednesday. The incident has also prompted a huge increase in anti-Muslim incidents, according to the organisation Faith Matters, which works to reduce extremism. Before the attack about four to eight cases...

    CARSON CITY The Nevada Supreme Court has rejected the appeal of Las Vegas killer Clayton L. Wrencher, who complained his rights were violated when he was warned not to cry or show remorse during his trial. Wrencher was admonished by District Court Judge Michelle Leavitt not to shed tears or display emotion, and he maintains that prejudiced him before the jury. The court said Wrencher did not object at trial but raised the issue later.

    Blog Police Creeps Are George Soros Plants For at least a month now a crew of three or four screen names here on Free Republic have been used to spam post after post all across the board. They have decided that they are Free Republic's police, they think they speak for the whole board, and have been attempting to drive people off this site. But are they real FReepers? Or are they something else? It is pretty clear that they are being paid to do this by a George Soros-styled, left wing organization to spam FR, attack posters, and attempt...

    Republican Sharron Angle famously told Sen. Harry Reid to "man up" during a Nevada debate this month -- the implication being that Reid is a wuss, or not man enough to do his job. You'll get no argument from me, but I did note Reid didn't fire back at his opponent. That's because feminists have taught him well. When faced with whether or not to make a disparaging remark about the female gender, most men know to keep their mouths shut. In politics today, women can do and say whatever they want about the opposite sex, but men can't do...

    It's a male politician's nightmare. You're facing a female challenger. You're lagging in the polls, but a great debate performance could redeem you. Then, just when you think victory is within reach, your opponent hits you where it hurts. "Man up," she taunts. How do you recover from that? It's a tough one, as Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid can attest. It took the Nevada Democrat a week to come up with a retort after GOP challenger Sharron Angle zinged him with a "man up" during a televised debate this month. (Ultimately he settled on, "From the street to the...

    Is anyone else as tired as I am of hearing GOP campaign operatives, and Conservatives as well, whining about how the 'Rats are going to steal elections in November? The Dems can only steal an election if we let them. The Dems play hardball and the GOP whines. It's time to quit being sissies and man-up; be assertive, be aggressive. Instead of running from The New Black Panthers, Union Thugs and DemocRAT bullies, get two or three Poll Watchers in each polling station that have some 'nads. I work the polls and have for years unless I can't get off...

    When it comes to picking a moderator for a game of Quien Es Mas Macho?, somehow John Harwood doesn't spring to mind. But there was CNBC's chief Washington correspondent on The Ed Show this evening, twice accusing Pres. Obama's businessmen critics of "whining," and instructing them to "man up." Schultz set the stage, playing a clip of Mort Zuckerman describing Obama's White House as "the most anti-business administration." Trying to tar Mort with the R-word, Schultz spoke of Zuckerman as having considered a run for Senate from New York "as a Republican." In fact, the Zuck man is a lifelong...

    JOHANNESBURG (Reuters) - A South African man shot three weeks ago was told to "walk the pain off" and is still trying to persuade hospitals to remove the bullet lodged in his side, a newspaper said Thursday. Three Johannesburg hospitals refused to remove the bullet for security guard Phillip Mashiane, 38, who was shot during a burglary at the property of South Africa's ambassador to the United Nations, the Star newspaper said. snip Doctors at a third hospital said it could not remove the bullet because Mashiane had started treatment elsewhere.

    Where Do We Go From Here? The following is a disclaimer that is only necessary because as sure as liberals exist; They do violence to language by giving random and arbitrary meanings to words: This is not a call for violence, or revolt against this very corrupt government. As an ex-liberal living behind liberal lines here in Marin County California, I am feeling lost, isolated and frustrated. It has been a very hard week for conservatives. Judges in Arkansas tell us that we cannot prevent gays from adopting. President Bush has the mildest words for the traitorous actions of the...
