  • You won't believe what Sears is selling now"Hot & Exotic" PORNOGRAPHY!

    You won't believe what Sears is selling now "Hot & Exotic" is just one small sample of Sears' explicit DVD offerings May 6, 2011 Dear Freeper, Under the new leadership of Chairman Edward Lampert, Sears is now offering hard-core pornographic DVDs and music. Not just a few x-rated products, but scores of them! AFA ordered one of the DVDs to see if it really came from Sears. It did! It was mailed to us in a Sears envelope, with a Sears shipping label, from a Sears distribution center. Not only does Sears' website allow children to view its pornographic offerings...

    "I frankly don't understand why policy makers aren't more worried about the suffering of real families..." Calling the Obama Administration's flippant lack of concern for a comatose labor market they've done so much to create "shameful", former Council of Economic Advisors Chair Christina Romer -who left the Administration last fall- spoke Tuesday at Vanderbilt University:  “I think there are tools we have tools we have that we can use, and I think it’s shameful that we’re not using them”: __________________________________________________________________________ ...the sharpness of her criticism reflected deep concern among many Democratic economists about a political consensus that the federal government has to rein...

    New York Times ^ | December 9, 2010
    On one of the most shameful days in the modern history of the Senate, the Republican minority on Thursday prevented a vote to allow gay and lesbian soldiers to serve openly in the military of the United States. They chose to filibuster a vital defense bill because it also banned discrimination in the military ranks. ...The senators who stood in the way of these measures must answer to the thousands of gay and lesbian soldiers who must live a lie in order to serve, or drop out.... The Senate majority leader, Harry Reid, said that he would allow another vote...

    Sarah Ferguson put on a brave face as she ran errands in New York today, ahead of her return to the UK to account to her ex-husband for her latest gaffe. She is expected to meet with Prince Andrew this week to explain how she was caught up in a sting by an undercover reporter, offering access to the prince for £500,000. After the news broke at the weekend she took a pre-arranged flight to Los Angeles to collect an award for her charity work.
  • CA: Still shameful / Air board’s response to scandal is appalling (CARB 'sucks' as state suffers)

    San Diego Union - Tribune ^ | 12/5/09 | Editorial
    Beginning with two editorials in late December 2008, this editorial page repeatedly has criticized the California Air Resources Board for its headline-hunting decision to adopt unprecedentedly sweeping and costly diesel-emission rules at its meeting earlier that month. Soon after that meeting, we had confirmed that Hien Tran – lead author and coordinator of the study justifying the rules – lied about having a Ph.D. in statistics from the University of California Davis. Our subsequent reporting showed senior air board officials from Chairwoman Mary Nichols down knew of Tran’s academic fraud before the Dec. 12, 2008, vote but chose not to...
  • Obama Nobel win shocks Swedish peace group

    The Swedish Peace and Arbitration Society (Svenska Freds) has classified as "shameful" the decision by the Nobel Committee in Oslo to award the Nobel Peace Prize for 2009 to Barack Obama. "The choice of Barack Obama as the recipient of the world's foremost peace prize is shocking," said the group's chairwoman Anna Ek in a statement. Ek conceded that the US president had sent "positive signals" with regard to his future commitment to global peace. "But at the same time Obama is the president of the biggest military power in the world and is waging two wars in the world....

    What these sleazebags won't do to pass national health care! Dems today pushed for Obamacare at Teddy Kennedy's funeral. And, they used a child as a prop. They politicized Ted Kennedy's funeral just as they politicized Wellstone's -- before the body was even cold. They even booed Tom DeLay and then-Gov. Jesse Ventura for the horrible crime of paying their respects. This is shameful conduct by shameless people.

    Washington Times ^ | April 15, 2009 | By Julia Duin
    When President Obama gave his economics speech at Georgetown University on Tuesday, several folks noticed something was missing. That "something" was an ancient monogram -- the letters IHS -- that symbolizes the name of Jesus. It was missing from a wooden archway above the dais in Gaston Hall where the president delivered his 45-minute speech. The gold-lettered monogram appeared near a painting of three female figures -- symbolizing morality, faith and patriotism -- and decorative edging along the wall that spelled out the Jesuit motto "Ad majorem Dei gloriam"—"To the greater glory of God." Georgetown was founded by the Jesuits....

    BAGHDAD, Iraq (CNN) -- A soldier used the Quran -- Islam's holy book -- for target practice, forcing the chief U.S. commander in Baghdad to issue a formal apology on Saturday. Maj. Gen. Jeffery Hammond apologizes after a soldier admitted using the Quran for target practice. Maj. Gen. Jeffery Hammond, commander of U.S. forces in Baghdad, apologized to leaders in Radhwaniya, in the western outskirts of Baghdad, for the staff sergeant who was a sniper section leader assigned to the headquarters of the 64th Armored Regiment. He also read a letter of apology by the shooter. It was the first...

    Surrendocrats, White Flag Waving FraudsHow could I have ever been a Democrat, is unfathomable to me now.. I was until I witnessed a hippy spit on wheelchair bound quadriplegic solder at an airport in 1969, I kicked his ass and my loyalty to the Democrats on that concourse.. A shameful, dishonorable, despicable, group of whinny, incessant, losers.. Those words best describe the revulsion I felt while witnessing the political sham the Democrat Party has become.. What happened within the halls of congress this past week, demonstrates the best and the worst of our system of government, and the second most...
  • Angelides slams 'shameful and phony' Iraq war

    Sacramento Bee ^ | 9/27/6 | Peter Hecht
    Before a raucous anti-war crowd at San Francisco State University, Democratic gubernatorial candidate Phil Angelides on Tuesday vowed to fight to bring California's National Guard troops home "and do my part to end George Bush's failed adventure in Iraq." Angelides, seizing upon the war to energize his underdog campaign to unseat Republican Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger, took to the road to deliver speeches in Northern and Southern California condemning U.S. involvement in Iraq. Constitutional scholars argue that a governor lacks authority to order state National Guard units home once they have been federalized by the president. Yet, undaunted, Angelides used the...

    Democrats have "sunk to a new low" by releasing a "shameless" fund-raising video with images of dead American soldiers, critics charge. The video from the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) shows U.S. flag-draped coffins loaded on an airplane, and a standing rifle supporting the helmet of a fallen GI, in a montage of "things that are wrong with America." The attempt to capitalize on the deaths of American soldiers has generated outrage among politicians, veterans, military families, and conservative bloggers. "The families of the fallen heroes of the War on Terror deserve our utmost respect and compassion," said Rep. Jeb...

    Wearing work boots and carrying flashlights on a spring day last year, a band of architects and developers picked their way through the dim interior of the American Brewery. They looked like archaeologists combing through an ancient ruin, which, in some ways, is exactly what the brewery is. Built in the 1800s, the American Brewery has stood empty these past 33 years, a ghostly reminder of a distant past when the city's manufacturing muscle was on display in working-class neighborhoods such as this one in East Baltimore. Rain drips from a hole in the roof and puddles on the floor....

    I am curious why none of the media covers the most important aspect of the Malvo shootings. If you look at Newspapers on the dates when the shootings are underway you discover something I find quite interesting. The shootings begin to dominate the news the day before the debate on the Iraq war starts and they catch them the day after the declaration of war??? If you ask most people "do you remember the debate about starting the second Iraq war", they will all answer "yes of course". But if you followup with the question "name one point in the...

    I recently received a reply to a post that stated: "This should be beneath a "freeper". Sad." So I asked.. what is it that makes a FReeper? My reply (and I will admit was tasteless) was also questioning. It stirred controversy and was removed? Why Moderators? Can you not tell me? Did it not meet with your "FReeper" mentality? According to all posted guidelines it should be listed but no, you chose to delete it. Yes.. I'm the first one IBTZ, I'm sure you'll nick me for speaking up..
