  • Authorize the Use of Force Against Our Real Enemy - Iran

    09/09/2013 2:41:18 AM PDT · by Kaslin · 8 replies ^ | September 9, 2013 | Kurt Schlichter
    Why are we talking about Syria when the real enemy is Iran? Everyone agrees that a key central consideration behind an attack on Syria is the message it would sent to the mullahs in Iran. The idea is that weakness and fecklessness in the face of Assad’s barbarism du jour will somehow telegraph to the players in Tehran that it’s open season on building nukes.There’s an easy solution to this quandary, and unlike hand-slapping the degenerates in Damascus it serves a clear American interest. Congress should authorize the use of force to topple the Iranian regime if it doesn’t dismantle...

    Am I the only one having issues displaying threads on the forum this morning? Threads with less than 50 posts appear to display fine. Threads with more than 50 replies to them I see perhaps the first 12-15 posts in the thread and that's it. I don't see the page footer or anything else, the page just truncates. Also, I've noticed if I click on a specific message link to a thread, I don't get that message link displayed, rather I see replies above or below that link. For example, if Person A replied to Person B, and the link...

    Well it is Thanksgiving week. We just finished a disappointing election, Israel is in trouble. The United States is figuring out how to economically survive and I have not had one of these fun vanities in a long time. We used to do them pretty frequently back in the day. I wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving and a great time participating in this vanity like we used to do in the past!!!!!

    During the last California primary election I posted discussion threads for region relevant candidates and measures, called CA Freepers Voter Guides.;o=time;s=Freepers%20Voter%20Guide These posts were well received by friends, family, and fellow Freepers, and they even received some modest media attention: However, I noticed last time the resulting discussions would have worked better in a style similar to the state message boards (e.g.: ), because with election information it is important to see the most up-to-date comments first, and Freepers need to be able to delete or amend their statements as they receive new information. However,...

    Shroud of Turin: Old as Jesus? By THE NEW YORK TIMES Published: January 27, 2005 he Shroud of Turin is much older than the medieval date that modern science has affixed to it and could be old enough to have been the burial wrapping of Jesus, a new analysis concludes. Since 1988, most scientists have confidently concluded that it was the work of a medieval artist, because carbon dating had placed the production of the fabric between 1260 and 1390. In an article this month in the journal Thermochimica Acta, Dr. Raymond N. Rogers, a chemist retired from Los Alamos...

I didn't have to work that day until 2pm and I woke up about 9:20 and the first thing I did was light a cigarette and log into chat. When I got there, one of the chatters said "Billy, did you hear about the plane that just crashed?" - I said No... and then i turned on FOX - just moments after I turned it on, I heard...

    For reasons I truly not do understand, a number of threads I posted to tonight to got pulled from News / Activision. Now, that's okay. It isn't my board. As far as I'm concerned, J&J can run it however they want. I would, however, like to know what the rules are. It is very annoying to spend fifteen minutes writing what you think will be an accepable post, only to go back and find that the entire thread has been yanked. There was *nothing* about any of those (the threads) that I thought was least bit objectionable. They were on...

    The Freepathons are hard work for those of us who work the threads and the incoming donations. When donations come in it is our reward, no matter how small they are. We spend our time thanking the donor, posting amongst our selves, etc. When it gets quiet and hours go by without any incoming donations it gets very frustrating. So we go out and carpet bomb the threads to create more incoming donations.Here is where the problem starts. If you don't like our appeals, just scroll past them or DONATE. The sooner we reach or goal the sooner the bombs...

This new feature is found via the thread page (posts), in the righthand TOPICS column, and is labelled "Click to Add Topic". Clicking the link will bring up a form, which currently only prompts for a list of comma-separated topics. In the future, this will be a comprehensive topic select screen.
