  • Need some advice on a handgun.

    So I am in no mans land here, I am looking for a hand gun for my daughter for concealed carry. I have not bought one for someone else before however we have been to the range many times and she has handled many firearms over the years. I am a stickler when it comes to, "if it's not comfortable in your hand, you will never shoot it right" philosophy. However, I have big huge man hands so all of them are fit for me, and her hands are a lot smaller. For expert opinion, let me describe her. 5'6"...
  • Why I Still Think Fiorina Was A Terrible CEO

    Politico ^ | Sept. 20, 2015 | Jeffrey Sonnenfeld
    As a professor, hearing my name once, let alone twice, before 25 million TV viewers in an historic U.S. presidential debate is a surreal experience. “The head of the Yale business school, Jeffrey Sonnenfeld, wrote a paper recently,” Donald Trump proclaimed in his attack on Carly Fiorina’s business record, “one of the worst tenures for a CEO that he has ever seen.” Immediately, the phones started ringing, text messages dinging, emails beeping—notes from thrilled old students, proud colleagues, teasing friends, pleased former teachers, curious clients, and my own immediate family in shared, flushed, utter shock. So used to being identified...
  • Jeffrey Sonnenfeld: Why I Still Think Fiorina Was a Terrible CEO

    09/20/2015 5:16:39 PM PDT · by springwater13 · 54 replies
    As Fiorina admits, I have been critical of her for over a decade—long before she announced her political aspirations. I have studied her business record, challenged her leadership abilities and have come to agree with the assessment that she was one of the worst technology CEOs in history. I stand by that evaluation. Fiorina can attack me all she wants, as she did when she called me “a well-known Clintonite” (an absurd allegation I’ll get to later) who “had it out for me from the moment that I arrived at Hewlett Packard.” But no amount of one-liners to Trump, weekend...

    General question for our FreeRepublic community: Is there an opinion poll restricted to our internal FR posting members? I have an interest in what our FR community thinks about a huge range of topics. Reading posts and participating in threaded discussions has been very informative. However, I think there's merit to introducing polling our members on a number of topics and current events: Political: favorite political candidate (weekly to see trends) Who do you want to impeach, and how long should their sentence be? ;n) Social - should we restrict immigration, and if so the quota? Geopolitical / Foreign policy...

How on Earth could you possibly remember that?" I was a toddler then, now in my sixties. Dad said the man was being chased by the police, and my mom felt sorry for him. Today, transvestites are celebrated, awarded for courage. And yet, more Americans than ever view themselves as victims. A caller on a radio show said people are fed up with both sides...

    Futurism is when experts make educated, knowledgeable predictions about where humanity is going in the future. It is a growing and important field used by many national and transnational organizations to help give them an edge over competitors. The military is deeply involved in futurism, trying to gain an advantage over future potential enemies. Banks and hedge funds, also for similar reasons. Nation-states and governments spend substantial amounts of money in futurist-orientated research each year. Futurists examine trends and attempt to extrapolate where these trends may lead. It is a fascinating field and anybody who spends any time looking at...

    washingtontimes.com ^ | June 9, 2014 | Cheryl K. Chumley
    For the first time in Vatican history, the pope allowed for the reading of Islamic prayers and Koran readings from the Catholic facility. The readings and prayer came as Pope Francis met with Israeli President Shimon Peres and Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas in Vatican City, a gathering designed to pray for Middle Eastern peace. A Holy See spokesman said the prayers were supposed to be a “pause in politics,” Breitbart reported. The pope said, too, that he hoped the interfaith prayers would foster peace specifically between Israelis and Palestinians, the news outlet said.

    Roman Catholic “presuppositions” on the early papacy are in retreat Galileo: “If I can do it, Bergoglio can do it” A “presupposition” is an elementary assumption in one’s reasoning or in the process by which opinions are formed… [In the case of Protestant/Catholic discussions], a “presupposition” is not just any assumption in an argument, but a personal commitment that is held at the most basic level of one’s network of beliefs. Presuppositions form a wide-ranging foundational perspective (or starting point) in terms of which everything else is interpreted and evaluated. As such, presuppositions have the greatest authority in one’s thinking,...

    I am a student of history, and consider myself fairly well read on the subject. No expert by any means, so I ask the rest of you, particularly those who are older and/or wiser: are there not strange contrasts to the Cultural Revolution imposed by Mao and the race riots of Obama's tenure? Acknowledging some differences, too, I still think there may be some eerie parallels. I invite your input.

    Reformed Apologist ^ | December 17, 2012 | Reformed Apologist
    Roman Catholics often assert that Protestantism operates under the principle that Scripture is open to private interpretation because Protestants deny the need for an infallible magisterium to interpret Scripture. Is historic Protestantism really a religion of "me and my Bible?" Do the tenets of historical Protestantism really deny 2 Peter 1:20, which informs that no prophecy of Scripture is of private interpretation? An honest and informed Roman Catholic understands that Protestants do not think that Scripture has no need for an interpreter. 1. An honest and informed Roman Catholic understands and will gladly concede that historic Protestantism affirms that Scripture is the interpreter...

    Reformed Apologetics Thoughts of Francis Turretin Blog ^ | April 21, 2009 | Francis Turretin Fan
    Within Roman Catholicism (and within some other churches as well) there are prayers that are made for, through, and to the dead. We, as Reformed believers, reject all three of these categories but on different grounds. In discussing these issues with Roman Catholics it may be useful to be able to understand the different categories and to explain why it is that we reject each. We should pray for the living, to the living and true God, through the merits and intercession of Christ alone. 1. Prayers For the Dead In Roman Catholicism, there is a belief in Purgatory. Although...

    A Dean at Cornell University proclaimed on camera he’d give the green light for an ISIS club on campus in which actual members conducted training exercises. I’m curious if this demonstration of humanitarianism would be preempted by recent video of ISIS soldiers beating, raping, torturing, mutilating, and beheading countless men, women and children in the name of Allah? I also wonder if American Christians would enjoy an equally enthusiastic welcome if similar proof existed of their ranks committing mass atrocities. Oh, that’s right, Christians or Jews really aren’t welcome because the Crusades, which ended over 700 years ago, were a...

    This is why I use the word “attempted” in describing the pope’s desire to eradicate capital punishment: because he lacks the authority to make such a change. Shocking, I know, but I said it before and I’ll repeat it again: the teaching on this matter is settled. In order to advance this position, Pope Francis would have to declare several of his predecessors as well as St. Augustine, St. Thomas Aquinas, St. Thomas More (who prosecuted heretics in an England where that was a capital offense), a papal decree, an apostolic constitution, and also St. Paul’s own divinely-inspired writing in...

    The New York Times ^ | 24 Nov 2014 | YASCHA MOUNK
    Nearly a century ago, Harvard had a big problem: Too many Jews. By 1922, Jews accounted for 21.5 percent of freshmen, up from 7 percent in 1900 and vastly more than at Yale or Princeton. In the Ivy League, only Columbia and the University of Pennsylvania had a greater proportion of Jews. Harvard’s president, A. Lawrence Lowell, warned that the “Jewish invasion” would “ruin the college.” He wanted a cap: 15 percent. When faculty members balked, he stacked the admissions process to achieve the same result. Bolstered by the nativism of the time, which led to sharp immigration restrictions, Harvard’s...

    Despite the president's low approval ratings, and the continuing cacophony of hate directed toward him by Republicans and racists, any reasonable assessment of Barack Obama's accomplishments to date would conclude that his presidency could well go down as a time of historic achievement. The Affordable Care Act, the Lilly Ledbetter Act, the Dodd-Frank Financial Regulation Bill -- the largest since the New Deal -- and his economic policies bolstered by yeoman's work of the Federal Reserve, place Obama solidly in the company of presidents like FDR and LBJ. Despite widespread Republican disinformation about and unrelenting opposition to the Affordable Care...

    Hopefully, America has learned its lesson — do not elect another “community organizer.” This is especially true when the community organizer has a murky history filled with pathological lies, a hatred of America and a long list of associations with those who wish to destroy our nation. You would think a community organizer would know that showing weakness is a provocation for your enemies. Maybe President Barack Obama does know this and doesn’t care. Or maybe he does not have a clue what is going on in Europe, the Middle East, South America, Asia and everywhere else where America’s enemies...

    President Obama took a victory lap on Tuesday, celebrating 7 million Obamacare enrollees. Let’s take a look at this success. President Obama and the Democrats pushed through their signature domestic policy stating the “Affordable” Care Act would cover “every American.” They have used the figure of “48 million uninsured Americans.” To date, Obamacare has then enrolled less than 2 percent of those uninsured Americans. “It’s working!” exclaimed the president. The Rand Corporation crunched the numbers and discovered only 858,000 people of the 7 million enrollees have actually paid their premiums, which is required to actually be covered.

    For progressives, the post-election honeymoon is over One year removed from re-election, President Obama's approval rating has sunk to the lowest level of his presidency. Furthermore, Obama's popularity among the Democratic Party base — whose rejuvenated support proved crucial last November — took a huge hit this past year. Only 54 percent of self-described liberals "very strongly" approve of Obama's job performance, according to a Pew survey released this week. That's down from an all-time high of nearly 90 percent, and a significant decline from the 73 percent who strongly approved of the president back in June. Why the steep...
