  • Vanity: I think I have a masterful strategy for the McCain campaign.

    10/20/2008 9:08:06 AM PDT · by · 18 replies · 824+ views ^ | October 20,2008 |
    I wrote this blog post and put it on my friend's website. Maybe I am crazy but I think this is political gold. If you agree or can come up with a better strategy please email the McCain campaign, if you think I am wrong or crazy that is fair, on little sleep so maybe this is off base: You need to have McCain on the stump right now, demanding that Obama answer and explain what in the hell Biden is talking about, and why Biden is projecting weakness to our enemies. I AM referring to the Biden speech on...

    Can anyone remember...there are 2 files in Win98 that "remember" the drivers database. It was a trick in years past, that if you corrupted your drivers, you could "force" a rescan of the database by deleting these two. I though they ended in .idx and lived in the system folder, but I am hitting a dead wall and can't remember them.

    I haven't been sleeping much lately, my husband is somewhere on the other side of the world and I haven't spoken to him or received an email from him all month! Anyway, I was just doing some surfing and I thought I'd ask my FRiends for some of their favorite web sites (other than FR of course) so that I can get some new surfing ideas. So what are your favorite web sites that you regularly visit or have found recently? My top ten can't miss sites are: 1) FR (of course) 2) (Don't know why) 3) (what's...
  • Poll to Freep: Who would be worse for the country? John McCain or Barack Obama

    The question is at the bottom of the page, the effect on Conservatism is a tough call unless McCain changes the type of politician he's been over the last decade or more. Conservatives would probably unite if Obama is President but Obama will use typical divide a conquer strategies against the leadership of the opposition to say and the media will broadcast the message loud and clear. If you support my oppositions position you are radical, right wing, redneck, racist. Otherwise known as the 4 R's of the Republican Party.
  • Has anyone read or scanned any of Wright's books?

    I wanted to get any of Wright's books from our local library, but neither they nor any of the 50 libraries on their network have any of them. I am curious to see if their is continuity of the hate filled speech in his writings. If there is it would be more difficult for Obama to distance himself from the "pastor" as his books were written some time ago.

    Recently, I added a DVD-burner to my XP-based PC with no problem at all. My brother, however, in imitation, has gotten one of those no-name with no-software DVD-burners for his Win98SE machine, and has discovered the off-the-shelf burning software he bought gags and dies. he has a very fast (well, it was a few months ago) PC with 500+ meg memory.

    Okay, so this evening was like a glass of cold water hitting me in the face. The GOP is on its way to nominating McCain as our Presidential candidate. If this happens, I WILL NOT vote Republican this Presidential election. Here is my question, could Huckabee or Romney drop out, and endorse the other candidate, and request their delegates to join them in that support? Could a VP promise from either of these men, with egos set aside, save the conservative vote? I am willing to vote for EITHER of those two men for POTUS, and am willing to bet...

    The New York Sun December 10, 2007 Bloomberg Seeks To Question Candidates About Guns By GRACE RAUH Staff Reporter of the Sun December 10, 2007 Mayor Bloomberg is trying to force every presidential candidate to take a stand on guns. A bipartisan coalition he co-founded with Mayor Thomas Menino of Boston, Mayors Against Illegal Guns, is asking all presidential candidates to complete a 16-question survey about restrictions on gun trace data, gun trafficking, federal enforcement of gun laws, and punishment levels for breaking gun laws. The survey allows Mr. Bloomberg, seen as a potential presidential candidate who could jump into...
  • The early wheel: Solid, wooden and round versus spoked, wooden and round?

    Just a simple question to kick-around unless someone knows for sure? I'm watching the Nativity Scene the other day (Good movie, by the way) and I notice that the villagers around Mary, Joseph and family have pull carts with solid, wooden wheels. I guess I've always assumed this type of wheel came first as far as history goes... Then I started thinking about other movies like Gladiator, The 10 Commandments, various other "BC" movies and notice that they've got wooden, spoked wheels...Even though all of these movies took place much, much earlier in history than the Nativity Scene. The only...

    WASHINGTON - Senate Republicans sharply challenged President Bush's top military general and ambassador in Iraq on Tuesday in a blatant demonstration of misgivings within the GOP about the protracted war. "Are we going to continue to invest blood and treasure at the same rate we're doing now? For what?" asked Sen. Chuck Hagel, R-Neb., who supports legislation setting a deadline to bring troops home. The deep-seated doubt expressed at the hearing before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee reflected just how far Congress had come since the war began over four years ago. And Republican senators raised tough questions that rivaled...

    Calendar question over star disc Some observers have likened the disc to a winking face Archaeologists have revived the debate over whether a spectacular Bronze Age disc from Germany is one of the earliest known calendars. The Nebra disc is emblazoned with symbols of the Sun, Moon and stars and said by some to be 3,600 years old. Writing in the journal Antiquity, a team casts doubt on the idea the disc was used by ancient astronomers as a precision tool for observing the sky. They instead argue that the disc was used for shamanistic rituals. But other archaeologists who...
  • Scientists question climate tinkering (A 'cheesy' take on Global Warming and "fixing" it)

    WASHINGTON - When climate scientist Andrew Weaver considers the idea of tinkering with Earth's air, water or sunlight to fight global warming, he remembers the lessons of a favorite children's book. In the book, a cheese-loving king's castle is infested with mice. So the king brings in cats to get rid of the mice. Then the castle's overrun with cats, so he brings in dogs to get rid of them, then lions to get rid of the dogs, elephants to get rid of the lions, and finally, mice to get rid of the elephants. That scenario in "The King, the...

    Fellow FREEPers: The time has come for me to donate my old vehicle. It still runs but is not a beauty cosmetically speaking. :) We will just be getting another vehicle and the trade-in value is pretty low, so I'd rather just let someone else have it. Now I've done a bit of research and have not come up with anything worthwhile--one place supposedly takes cars and gives them to poor people (Charity Cars, Inc.), but a rating by a charity rating moderator only gives them a 2 out of 4 stars. I'd like to find a higher quality organization....

    Reports from the state Republican convention this weekend suggest that state GOP members are excited about former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani, who is likely to run for president. Think about this: The state GOP is becoming the party of liberal Arnold Schwarzenegger, supporter of socialized health care, minimum wage hikes, global warming extremism, debt spending and tax increases. Giuliani is the premiere police-state Republican. This is no longer the party of Reagan. Is it time for supporters of limited government (remember that idea?) and a humbler foreign policy (to use GW Bush's election words) to jump ship?

    FREDERICKSBURG, Va. - Democratic Senate challenger Jim Webb declined to say definitively Tuesday whether he had ever used a common derogatory term to describe blacks, stepping carefully after watching his campaign rival confront charges of racism. "I don't think that there's anyone who grew up around the South that hasn't had the word pass through their lips at one time or another in their life," Webb told reporters. Webb referred to his novel, "Fields of Fire," which aides said includes occurrences of the n-word as part of character dialogue. But he added: "I have never issued a racial or ethnic...
