    The Army is moving to discharge a decorated combat pilot who intervened to stop two lesbian officers from showing excessive affection on the dance floor at an official ball at Fort Drum, N.Y. Lt. Col. Christopher Downey ended up being convicted administratively of assaulting a soldier trying to film the kissing and grabbing. Col. Downey’s lawyer, Richard Thompson, says his client merely pushed down the camera to prevent photos that could end up on social media.

    “Two Boys Kissing” will stay in Fauquier High School’s library. FHS parent Jessica Wilson made an official complaint to remove the book from the school library on Feb. 7, because she believed that the cover of the book condoned public displays of affection, which are against school policy. Marie Miller, a teacher at FHS and the advisor for the school publication The Falconer said that she believes that those opposing the book were doing so not because of it’s lack of appropriateness for the students, but because it is a story about gay teens. “If the focus of this book...

    When Robbie Mullen planted an innocent peck on his girlfriend’s cheek over Sunday lunch, he never imagined it would see him bundled into a police van and warned about his behavior. Mr. Mullen’s romantic gesture offended one diner so much that she complained to staff, who then asked the civil engineer and his partner Natalie Potter to move tables. When he refused, the 43-year-old said he was “shocked” to see four police officers arrive and march him outside where he was told he was not welcome in the restaurant. …

    One day after having the best sales day in its history, Chick-fil-A will have to prepare itself for a counter-protest to yesterday's "appreciation day" by those outraged over threats made by mayors and city council members in Boston, Chicago, San Francisco, and New York (Mayor Michael Bloomberg did not join his colleagues in the other cities). Supporters of same-sex marriage will stage "kiss-ins" at Chick-fil-A locations tomorrow, if a Facebook-organized protest succeeds: Yesterday’s banner turnout at Chick-fil-A restaurants for free speech rights — with thousands of people nationwide and hundreds in the Bay State’s two locations lining up to buy...

    01/02/2012 8:38:41 AM PST · by mnehring · 89 replies
    It was recently observed that Ron Paul was to the left of Obama on national security and the best evidence for that statement can be found when one year ago Ron Paul joined forces with Barney Frank​ on a proposal to gut national defense via a panel of experts, quite a few of whom were tied to George Soros​. In July 2010, Barney Frank and Ron Paul co-authored a Huffington Post article rolling out their Sustainable Defense Task Force. The Task Force “consisting of experts on military expenditures that span the ideological spectrum” would recommend a trillion dollars in defense...

    For four years now, I have been carrying around a Palm TX which holds all my appointments, contacts, and to-dos, which are sync'd to my PC (Outlook 2003/Windows XP) by a USB cable. It's worked fine until recently, now showing signs of battery/display problems. It may be fixable, but there is still a concern about it being an orphan device which may not work with the next generation of PC software. So I am asking the techies at FR what I should replace it with. I have only two core requirements: (1) First, must be a standalone device with no...
  • Matthews: Media will destroy Palin if she wins in the primaries

    This isn’t intended as a criticism of Chris Matthews or his statement about Sarah Palin; in fact, he’s exactly correct in this analysis. If Palin decides to run for President and scores big in Iowa, survives in New Hampshire, and can go big in South Carolina, she will have a strong lead for the Republican nomination. Actually, that’s not exactly news, since that’s also the strategy for Mike Huckabee and Tim Pawlenty (who is spending three days in Iowa), and anyone else seeking the Republican nomination. Matthews is also not wrong about what will happen if Palin manages to do...

    WASHINGTON - A year ago, an activist group from the Seattle area gave Howard Dean (news - web sites) a thin, golden statue of a backbone. The Oscar-like award honored the former Democratic presidential candidate and Vermont governor for standing up against the Iraq (news - web sites) war and other Bush administration policies. Now, as Dean settles into his new role as head of the Democratic Party, that golden spine has come to represent, for many liberal Democrats, Dean's potential to develop a tougher, take-no-prisoners attitude among the party faithful. "There's no gut-check required for Dean. Dean just needs...

    STANDISH, Maine -- Justin Denney's family watched as he ascended the Cumberland County Civic Center stage during graduation Friday night to accept his diploma, but the superintendent told him to return to his seat. The Bonny Eagle High School senior's mother said she can't believe her son's taking a bow and blowing a kiss on stage led was grounds for the superintendent to withhold his diploma. Mary Denney wants an apology, and her son wants his diploma, reported WMTW-TV in Portland, Maine. "I'm like, 'Did she not hand him his diploma?' I'm like, 'What's going on?'" Mary Denney said.

    For teens, there is no greater joy than graduating high school. Shaking off the shackles of education and claiming that hard-fought diploma is truly an epic day. Unfortunately, for several students at Bonny Eagle High School in Maine, their natural exuberance has led to some surprisingly serious problems. On Friday night, when the senior class was waiting to graduate, excitement began to grow. Students bounced a large inflatable rubber duck. The noise level rose. And then came "the kiss." When called, one student walked on stage to receive his diploma and blew a kiss to his family. The school administrator,...

    Milford, CT (AHN) - Following an incident where a child was struck in the groin and had to be hospitalized, a Connecticut middle school has banned all physical contact. East Shore Middle School principal Catherine Williams sent letters out to parents this week informing them of the policy, WCBS TV in Milford, Conn. reported. Williams said violating the policy could result in "parent conferences, detention, suspension and/or a request for expulsion from school," she said in the letter. Some parents at the school are angry about the rule because it goes for non-violent contact like hugging, high-fives and handshakes.The Connecticut...
  • Anyone ever done a "Jailbreak"? Apple IPod / IPhone ?

    03/09/2009 2:37:45 PM PDT · by fishtank · 17 replies · 946+ views
    I need to get a new PDA-type device. Just FYI, I've used the Palm TX and/or Palm Tungsten for four or five years. But, if I can't bypass the 'wonderful' Apple feature on the IPod touch that doesn't allow "cut and paste", or "copy and paste", then an IPod won't be very useful to me. I trust Freeper opinions more than the average website out there, so I'm just wondering if anyone else has done this. Basically, I'd like to Jailbreak an IPod Touch so I can have a "cut and paste" feature. Possible? Good idea?
  • CBC’s Mallick: ‘White Trash’ Palin Has ‘Porn Actress Look,’ ‘Smart People’ Flee Small Towns

    Fox News recently picked up on a piece by the National Post’s Jonathan Kay which takes on the Canadian Broadcast Corporation (CBC) because one of its columnists, Heather Mallick, recently included incendiary comments in her September 5 column, on CBC's Web site, "A Mighty Wind blows through Republican convention," about Republican vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin, contending that Palin has the "toned-down version of the porn actress look," and attacking people in small towns as she charged that Palin "added nothing to the ticket that the Republicans didn't already have sewn up, the white trash vote, the demographic that sullies...
