    I have always thought that the direction our country would be set by people yielding to practical solutions that work. The left has always wanted us to be socialists but at least willing to push for changes that did little or no damage to our countries economy or its military status. The right has been patient with the left. Like a parent trying to discipline a child, the right has restrained itself and just like a parent has given in too much and given too little discipline. However, I sense that we have reached a point of no return. The...

    Yes it is amazing that Americans are ready to buy that pig because the Washington Whores put lipstick and a tootoo on the Medical commissions. Zero and his Medical Fascist had to back off (really?) the Care Commission. But how did they get around it? By putting it in Congresses hands. NO agencies and departments on the block. MILITARY and HEALTHCARE. The can claim it's only Medicare. But according to Obamacare Eveyone must be covered by the Obamacare T-4 Program. WHEN in the H will Americans get a CLUE?

    We are told there is a time critical element to this whole process, though it seems that Tuesday may NOT be as hard and fast a deadline as we're led to believe. Has Boehner promised that he will keep the 72 hr rule..that a bill MUST be online for that time period before voting on it.

    As the budget process unfolds on Capitol Hill, with the prospect of a government shutdown, It has become increasingly apparent that the GOP leadership in Congress lacks the will to fight. Congress is an inherently cowardly institution, but many in the TEA Party (and no doubt Sarah Palin) had hoped that the immense landslide of November 2010 would stiffen the spines of the John Boehner, Eric Cantor and the GOP leaders in Congress. After all, it was the GOP, not the Democrats who received a MANDATE and that mandate was to enact deep spending cuts, along the lines of the...

There is NOTHING that will redirect the mindless idiots who have fallen for his crappola. Being an empty-resume didn’t matter. Voting constantly as a far left-wing liberal didn’t matter. Voting to kill born babies and teach sex-ed to kindergartners didn’t matter. Having friends and mentors like Jeremiah Wright, William Ayers, Bernardine Dohrn, Tony Rezko, Raila Odinga, Saul Alinsky, and Rashid Khalidi didn’t matter. Being caught in blatant lies didn’t matter....
  • HOW McCAIN LOST IT

    McCain was always a long shot. He never had the support of the party base and the MSM is clearly in the tank for Obama, they don’t even bother to try to hide it anymore. But after his lunatic preacher’s rants slipped out past the MSM, Obie was weakened, clearly indicated by Clinton’s strong stretch run. I maintain that if Obama was white, the super delegates would have thrown him under the bus with his typical white grandmother. They couldn’t do that without enraging the black vote, which they need 90% of to win. So with all this, McCain stays...

    Since Freepers know the answers to just about everything: What happens in modern times (as I know what used to happen, pre-Civil War) if a party's clear nominee---after the convention---has to drop out due to health, whatever? New primaries are not possible: do the party leaders pick someone new, or does the veep candidate automatically ascend to the top spot?

    Today we witnessed a travesty of Justice. We saw a man convicted of lying under oath to a Grand Jury. Although his defense was that he did not recall with whom he had a conversation regarding the name of a CIA agent, published by the media. The jury just didn't believe him and subsequently decided that he did in fact lie. Now afterwards jurors made it clear through comments that what they really felt was sympathy for Mr. Libby and knew that he was the fall guy for the Bush Administration, who they believed was intentionally outing a CIA operative...

    On Wednesday of last week, my friend and I just couldn’t stand it any more. The frustration, the anger, the sorrow overwhelmed us to point that we needed to do something. We had called the POTUS, the Governor, the Florida Senators and DCF numerous times. The responses to those calls ranged from “we’re doing everything we can.”…to…interrupting our message with a rude, disinterested “thank you for calling”. There was no place we would rather be on Good Friday that supporting Terri’s fight and Terri’s family. We took Friday off of work, loaded up the truck Thursday night and drove from...

    DAY 1: FR_Addict and husband After driving 11 hours, we arrived about 12:30am on Thursday morning. We were able to park very close to the vigil. Perhaps 30 people were there. We went around and met some of the people there. The police told us to move behind the barricade, which we did. It felt surreal to be there after all this time. I decided to talk to the police to find out what they were thinking, so half-joking and half-serious; I asked why don’t you guys go on a “sick out”. One of the police said they couldn’t. I...

    My position on the Schiavo matter has vascilated back and forth over the past few days as I've agonized over the matter.Should she be given a chance at life? If so, what kind of life are we talking about? Is there a chance at rehabilitation? Is Michael Schiavo an evil S.O.B., or is he simply a heart-broken man?Conversely, is she truly in a vegetative state? A virtual zombie with eyes open, and nothing inside? Are her parents and family in denial about her pain and suffering? Are the evangelicals coming to her aid getting so worked up that they are...

    talk about how there's no difference between the parties. Kerry's most hawkish stance during the Democratic Convention was that he wouldn't hesitate to respond with force after terrorists attacked us. Both McCain and Giulliani have spoken passionately in favor of the Bush Doctrine and preemptive force generally. John Kerry's priority is mending alliances and Bush's is to stamp out global terrorism abroad so that we don't have to respond to attacks on the homeland.
