    June 7, 2006 — A federal judge ordered two attorneys to settle their dispute by using the children's playground game "rock, paper, scissors." The ruling yesterday by Judge Gregory Presnell of the U.S. District Court in Orlando, Fla., stated that he was so dissatisfied with the case's "latest in a series of Gordian knots" that he is fashioning "a new form of alternative dispute resolution." In the dispute at hand, the two attorneys could not agree about where to take the sworn statement of a witness in a case concerning payment of insurance claims. The judge's order states that the...

    Yaa, you repukes are not doing so well, huh? Imagine, you repukes control the presidency, both houses of Congress, and appointed 7 of the 9 Supreme Court justices. Yet the Supreme Court thre out sodomy laws in all 50 states and recognized the right of government to seize land for any reason. And you couldn't pass your Social Security changes could you? Sorry, that was your last shot. Come November, we're going to start seeing more Democratic faces in the House. It's the end for you guys. You guys are celebrating when Bush's numbers go *up* to 45%. Then Faux...

    Bush’s giant Right Wing Noise Machine (RWNM) loves to preach about the Bush economic miracle. In fact, the RWNM’s current thinking is Bush doesn’t spend enough time talking about his economic triumphs. If only he did, then everyone would fall in line and believe in the great Bush economic miracle. There is one problem with this argument: it’s a lie. Any way you look at the Bush economy, it comes up short. Today, I want to compare Bush’s job creation record with other economic recoveries. As usual, Bush comes up way short. The national Bureau of Economic Research has identified...

    Why does anybody support George w Bush as President? He is clearly the worst President I have ever seen -- a complete disaster. And before you say anything, I have been a registered Republican for 25 years.

    Lies of omission about 9/11 -- stoking fears of terrorism THEY WANT YOU TO BE AFRAID The following post was censored by freerepublic.com shortly after it was posted on their "public" forum on 9/11/04. That forum is designed to appear as though it is a community forum open to all, but this post only received three responses before it and its replies were deleted, and a repeat posting at 4 am PST on 9/20/04 didn't stay online for 5 minutes! Someone is apparently watching closely over the content of the freerepublic.com forums and censoring them 24/7 (though they might have...

    What is Derr you may ask? Derr may be the most important thing you may have to worry about. Derr is very evil, very naughty and very ungodly. It is believed to be the reason for why we aren't doing so well in Iraq. But back to the question... What exactly is Derr? Derr is a satanic ritual performed in this country long ago by the Canaanites, the Perezites, the Gurgashites, the Ammorites, the Moabites and the Hittites. It involved taking a stick from a wheat tree and sticking it up your nose while shouting, "Hey mom! Ship ahoy! There...

    (Gender bending, expressing non-traditional gender identities, isn't new, but it's increasing.) Like many female UW- Madison students, Dite Bray and her friends walk past the fraternity houses on Langdon Street wondering if the men inside will notice them. Unlike most of the other students, it's not because they're looking for dates. "I've walked around town in drag before," Bray said. "I'm frightened, because I'm walking down Langdon Street and we have fake facial hair stuck to our faces. I wouldn't do that by myself, but in a group it's OK." Bray, 24, is one of the growing number of young...

    TOM CRUISE reckons he has lived before and was even more talented and successful in his previous lives. The eccentric War Of The Worlds star told a press conference that he is "old beyond reckoning". And despite all his wealth and fame, he believes his current life is "probably one of the least satisfying" he has led.
  • Known and Unknown - life of mother and baby

    In old times of Europe, a bishop declared that Earth is the center of the universe and asked all the people to believe. We have this kind of things repeatedly happened through history. Does he need to decide if Earth is the center of universe? He does not have to determine something that he does not know. Now, somebody says human life with spirit starting when an egg combing with a sperm and dwelling in a womb. Nobody knows when a human life with spirit really starts. Nonetheless, we do know the benefit of the mother and the baby. We...
