    Halleleujah! Free Republic is back!! Whenever I'm unable to get online at Free Republic, I get worried, concerned that the forces of evil, malevolence have managed to somehow force Free Republic offline. By ordinary standards, my inability to link to FR was longer than usual. Hope everything is under control. I just want to say, Glad you're back!!! Long live Free Republic!! :-) :-) :-) :-) :-) :-) :-) :-)
  • Finally! A cure for white film on dishes (EPA caused the problem!)

    Have you noticed a white film on your dishes in recent months? As we first reported earlier this year, the reason is a new environmental law. Most manufacturers have reformulated their dishwasher detergents after laws limiting phosphates went into effect last year. Julie Schimpf of Ft Thomas, Kentucky showed me how bad her dishes looked. Julie said "there's this frosty, filmy look on the top and bottom and it won't go away. I'm finding the same film here on the edges of my plates." Complaints Nationwide Our partners at Consumer Reports Magazine have heard many of the same complaints, from...

    If I was younger and still serving I would be honored to have her as my commander in chief. You can keep the phony tough guy men that get trotted out as candidates. I saw REAL leadership up close and I know what it looks like. Sarah Palin has “IT.”
  • Massachusetts - Epicenter of the Second American Revolution? (Scott Brown)

    Note to Moderator: Normally I would post a vanity like this in General/Chat but I feel that due to the importance of Tuesday's election in Massachusetts to the conservative movement, it should be posted in News/Activism. If it is decided that it should be moved to General/Chat however, I will not be offended... This Tuesday, Massachusetts is having a special election to decide who will fill the senate seat previously held by Ted Kennedy for the past 48 years. To the utter shock of pretty much the entire nation, Republican Scott Brown is poised to win this election. If Brown...
  • Bioethics — Tough questions for us all to consider

    After World War II, the U.S. government invested an enormous amount of money in medicine; medical research, medical procedures and medical technologies. This investment made contemporary scientific medicine into American medicine, characterized by a continuing flow of new treatment possibilities. These advances raised all kinds of ethical questions. Some were personal and individual, others were social and political. Both type questions are addressed by a new academic discipline called bioethics. The first attempt to develop a scientific medicine took place in Greece in the 5th century B.C. It was called Hippocratic medicine. Closely linked with this first scientific medicine was...

  • 31,000 scientists reject 'global warming' agenda

    05/20/2008 3:13:33 AM PDT · by Man50D · 47 replies · 524+ views ^ | May 19, 2008 | Bob Unruh
    More than 31,000 scientists across the United States, including more than 9,000 Ph.D.s in fields including atmospheric science, climatology, Earth science, environment and dozens of other specialties, have signed a petition rejecting "global warming," the assumption that the human production of greenhouse gases is damaging Earth's climate. "There is no convincing scientific evidence that human release of carbon dioxide, methane, or other greenhouse gases is causing or will, in the foreseeable future, cause catastrophic heating of the Earth's atmosphere and disruption of the Earth's climate," the petition states. "Moreover, there is substantial scientific evidence that increases in atmospheric carbon dioxide...

    Outrage of the summer: The new "Superman" movie edited out "The American Way" from the Krypton immigrant's rally cry. The Daily Planet editor says Supe's now all about "Truth, Justice and all that stuff." Makes perfect sense. Consider the foreign markets, where "The American Way" means Abu Ghraib and McDonald's. Don't remind them! They might burn the theater. (If that's their way.) Besides, it makes sense to have a newspaper editor treat the line with gruff dismissal, because hard-bitten editors don't get starry-eyed over patriotic hogwash. Except when discussing the people's right to know the GPS coordinates of Superman's fort....
  • A city in ruins, sky thick with smoke: 'let's kick ass ... the American way'

    In the huge, muddy field which serves as a forward base, Major-General Richard Natonski prepared his troops for the battle ahead. 'We're goin' in to raise the Eye-raqi flag above Falluja - to give it back to the Fallujans,' he shouted, the eyes of the entire 1st Marine Division on him. Pausing to remember the marine corps who fought in Vietnam, Korea and the two world wars, they then stood to attention and launched into the marine hymn. 'Only two songs send a shiver up my spine,' said one marine, his face scored with the pockmarks and confidence of youth....

    PUTTING OUR PEOPLE “IN HARM’S WAY” On Saturday morning, seven human beings disintegrated over the state of Texas while attempting to reenter the earth’s atmosphere at a speed of twelve-thousand miles per hour. Everything had to be just right; otherwise, the intense heat would destroy the spacecraft and its occupants. As it turns out, everything was not “just right”, and the nation mourns. We can question. We can second-guess. We can criticize. One thing, however, we must not forget, as those brave seven no doubt never did. Their mission, no matter the number of previous successes, was a complicated one,...
