  • ZOT!! What is really going to happen? (Vanity)

    05/19/2010 6:15:39 PM PDT · by Shooterbug · 168 replies · 3,438+ views
    I know there is a lot of speculation on what will happen in the next few years, but I would really like to know if anyone has a real good sense of what will be going on in a few years. I would like to be prepared, but don't want to over prepare. Is there a real good sense of what is coming in the next few years? I have the ammunition I need, but is it really necessary to stockpile food. Just curious as to what other here are doing. Thanks

    Hoo-Aah! Our daughter graduated from Army Basic Training at Fort Jackson near Columbia, SC this weekend as part of the 193rd Brigade 3rd Battalion 60th Infantry Regiment, Foxtrot Company (the Wardogs). Communicating with loved ones during Basic is always an iffy proposition (less so today than generations ago). We and our daughter corresponded often via the U.S. Mail, a welcomed though wholly insufficient means. (As an aside, those of you with children or loved ones going through Basic write them often with positive messages and support; it works wonders for the morale of the recipient who is going through the...

    I'm 57 Years old. I have been conservative since I made the mistake of voting for Jimmy Carter, He was supposed to be a Born Again Christian. He never looked to the Bible. He was pro-abortion. His policies were anti-Israel and also anti-American. We the people were to blame for the bad economy. He didn't have the guts to go get our hostages out of Iran and he is the reason the people of Iran are still in bondage. I will say, “right now is the worst economy in my life time”, So Jimmy Carter is now off the hook....

    I just thought of something brilliant. A lot of parents want to homeschool, but one of the biggest arguments is that most parents don't know how to teach, that a certain sort of curriculum is needed. Basically, kids could go to school from home and while they take the courses, they aren't subjected to the misery of going to a school where they'll be bullied, harassed, and they can also have more free time to learn other stuff if they want to. For example, say Mary Jane wakes up at eleven, signs on, and then does a certain amount of...

    The thing about Sidney Crosby is that he became so good, so fast – and handled it all so well -- people forgot how young he was. Even now, people forget how young he … is. Sid turns 21 today. Twenty one. In another life, he might be entering his senior year of college, getting ready to earn his degree and send out resumes, looking for a job to chart his place in the world. Instead, he is on the cusp of his fourth National Hockey League season, captain and leader of the hottest young team in hockey, trailblazing scorer...

    I can't recall details, but in one of G.W. Bush's election campaigns, I vaguely recall a Democrat operative being discovered...someone doing tv commercials or something, I think. Now I know Obama is the Anointed One, but he probably also has operatives spread across America like so many tentacles of a vast left wing organization. In fact, he PROBABLY has a friend or two in high ranking places in the McCain campaign...telegraphing to him and his lackies the next moves the Arizona senator will take. Anyone care to theorize on who that might be? :)
  • Is Michael Moore in charge of MoveAmericaForward?

    07/24/2006 6:55:01 PM PDT · by gophergas · 18 replies · 665+ views
    You know, I do appreciate the purported goals of Move America Forward, but sometimes I have to wonder whether Michael Moore is running the show, just to make a conservative outfit look inept. First and foremost, when your name -- AND your logo -- say MoveAmericaForward dot org, you do NOT have a voiceover that refers to your organization as MoveAmericaForward dot COM. It'd be like George W. Bush all of a sudden referring to himself as George H. W. Bush or something similarly ridiculous. But you know, even as stupid as that is (and as stupid as it implies...

    Politically I think the President should have a Prime time Oval Office chat about this port deal. Explain the false information that has been floating around and tell the people what the facts are. If I were advising him, I have even have him say something like, "I personally just learned of this deal a few days ago, but people in my administration have been looking at this for quite some time, im sorry that this has become such a political issue and I agree, we did a poor job of informing the public. These are the facts..." Something like...

    Let's avoid kidding ourselves, shall we? Democrats aren't going to defeat Miers. They know the only liberal under consideration was Alberto Gonzales, the guy they used to argue that maybe Hussein wasn't so bad, as if a few humiliating photographs compared to the physical torture, starvation or execution of hundreds of thousands of Iraqi dissidents. (Man, those Democrats must've been scarred earlier in their lives. Memo to self: Don't join a fraternity that allows hazing but is "tolerant" of deviant sexual practices.) No, Harriet Miers was the best they could hope for. Sure they're afraid she MIGHT be conservative --...

    Is it just me or is anyone else tired of the cable news channels taking twelve hours out of a twenty-four hour day to spend talking about the blonde girl who disappeared in Aruba? I feel very bad for her parents, but to be very frank, it's been what? A month? We all know the Aruban cops make the Keystone Kops look like Lenny Briscoe, we already know that the Dutch legal system is essentially useless, and we all have theories about this girl's disappearance that range from the plausible to the utterly weird. What else do we need to...

I want to monopolize your time by selfishly posting a vanity about MY intent to STAY at my favorite site, FR! :D I've been flamed plenty of times for things I've posted (and am anticipating flames for this post). I've seen people make statements I do not agree with. Does this mean that I should post a vanity on why I am leaving? NO! In fact, a lot is to be learned by disagreement. I have refined and strengthened my arguments over the time I've spent here. The founding FATHERS...

She is an RN who has a job that she loved, but a new supervisor has managed to alienate her and the rest of the staff. She is very frustrated and unhappy, and I would like prayer for her to have peace and strength and know that God is looking out for her and will guide her in her decision to stay or to find another position. Thanks! Carolyn

    OK - A shameless vanity - but at least it's about golf. It got up to near 50 degrees today and no wind, so I went out and played 9 over a long lunch. As I was walking between shots, I began to day dream about who I would pick if I could play one round with anyone I wanted, and then thought it would make for an interesting vanity post. Here's what I decided: Front 9 - My son, Wayne Gretzky, and Jesus. Back 9 - My son, Tiger Woods, and Jesus. Pebble Beach would work just fine.

    OPERATION COUSIN EDDY- Named after "Cousin Eddy", the obnoxious and dysfunctional in-law form National Lampoon's Vacation films. Best remembered for a scene where Griswold's uptight neighbors wake up Christmas Morning to the sight of Cousin Eddy (dressed in boots, hat, bath robe and smoking a cigar) pumping out his RV's holding tank into their storm sewer....explaining loudly "Sh!tters Full!" Rude, crass, and to the point.In the spirit of Cousin Eddy, "Operation Cousin Eddy" is the strategic placement of "reading material" in public areas, restroom stalls, or in the work place (if it doesn't violate company policy). Certain Evangelic groups have...

    TV transcript | 12/29/03
    I must admit that I cannot stand the weekend edition of Fox and Friends. Mike Jerrick rarely contributes to the discussion, and that leaves Juliet argueing with Julian Phillips most of the program. Julian uses "Katie Couric" language such as "some feel" or "most feel." I hear Julian dance around the actual subject and attempt to make himself look neutral only then to parrot the liberal line. Julian will say something like this "You know some feel and I think I gotta agree with Dean. This capture of Saddam really hasn't made us any safer." By starting with "some feel"...

    This afternoon, I had the opportunity to hear a lecture by Justice Scalia given at my old law school. Nino was in fine form speaking on his favorite topic: Constitutional Interpretation. It was such a kick hearing him basically rip the law profs a new one for having no intellectual basis for the predominant view that the constitution is a living document. He noted that if one does not follow the original text of the Constitution a judge is left with no standard for doing anything other than what feels good. Origninalism sometimes forces the judge to make decisions that...
