    Apparently I went a little nuts last night and issued an "opus". I have not read it. Based on the feedback I have received it was pretty bad. For what it is worth, my son found me on the floor beneath my desk puking. He had to use a hot glue gun to repair my breathing mask. And in fact I slept great.I deeply apologize to my FR friends, I am one of those people who go a little crazy now and then. In this case I blame a new pharmaceutical that I just started yesterday. I have discontinued it...
  • Vanity: My opus on combating vote fraud

    Vote Fraud and How to Combat It Introduction I have been involved in campaigns and volunteering at the polls since 1994. In every election where I have been involved there was evidence of vote fraud. Based on personal experience I estimate that in important national elections up to 10% of all votes cast are fraudulent. Did you notice how polls that favor Republicans to win on Election Day are almost always off by a significant amount when the votes are counted? Have you noticed how Philadelphia turns in more ballots than the number of adults in the city? Who are...

    I have been neglecting this site for a long time, for a variety of reasons I do not wish to bore you with. But the bottom line is this: Things have changed within my life that has caused me to change my focus and I have found myself coming here less and less frequently. So I guess this is goodbye. More or less. I will still come here, on a smaller scale just to check in. For those of you who think about me now and again and wonder how I am, and want to stay in touch with me,...

    Just a note--my batteries have been drained by stuff at work, upcoming projects, and the strong desire to do more with my personal life than just FReep 26 hours per day... (check out the time stamp on my posts over the last several weeks). Yes, Mrs. Grey_Whiskers, the Cubs, and grey_whiskers (feline) have all expressed strong opinions on this subject... I will be taking a break from FR for the near-term / forseeable future, with the notable exception of Daily Limericks. I will respond to Freepmail in a slovenly, disorganized fashion as I have time, but don't expect a quick...

  • Communism and human nature (Bolshie Mod sez, Arise ye kittens of the earth!)

    04/05/2005 10:50:57 AM PDT · by Sammy sam · 153 replies · 8,234+ views
    Many argue that communism will never be possible because of "human nature". The essence of this false argument is the belief that a communist society would consist of an all-powerful central government that would tell everybody what to do--and would therefore undermine the creative initiative of individuals and the search for happiness. • This argument is based on two false assumptions: (1) It assumes that a communist society will look like the former Soviet Union, or the current China, North Korea, etc (ie: corrupt police states with a feudal-style ruling class) (2) It assumes that people will only work in...
