    There are many moderators, with different kinds of secret knowledge. Anything you might say about them (including this) will be false for some of the Moderators, but true for others, which only adds to the confusion and mystery. The Moderators infiltrate and take over cliques of all kinds, from drug warriors to libertarians to chatters, and turn them to their own ends. And, just as a black joke, some of their secret cliques advertise themselves as Secret Cliques. They have agents and "sleepers" planted everywhere. Many of these people have no idea who they are really reporting to. Others are...

    The following is a partially redacted copy of an email I sent to my father in law a couple of days ago in response to my wife freaking out because he'd apparently disowned me after learning that I'd voted for Romney, and reading a number of things that I'd posted on my blog. It's a bit long, and I realize that most Freepers will disagree with me on a number of items in the body of the email, but I thought it would be interesting to those looking for ways that for the conservative movement to appeal to other demographics....

    By Karl Denninger, The Market TickerAn article in the Chronicle of Higher Education that was forwarded to me (and which requires a subscription, so I won’t link it) prompted me to finally complete this Ticker, which I’ve been working on for a while.The question that is facing a bunch of 18 and 19 year olds right now, and will be facing 17 and 18 year olds coming into their Senior Year, is, quite simply: Where do I go to college?Let’s back up and change the question, because frankly, put as stated up above, the answer might be “nowhere!”Let’s first...

    The iPhone and iPad are decimating companies left and right, at a pace even faster than the PC revolution'sResearch in Motion's BlackBerry PlayBook is so bad that Verizon Wireless may not bother carrying it -- a spokesperson said so the day after the PlayBook debuted to customers. AT&T won't let BlackBerry users download the essential app (BlackBerry Bridge) that brings email and communications apps to the PlayBook. Carriers are arms dealers, selling weapons to anyone for a price, but even they are drawing the line at the PlayBook. That's a huge fall given that the PlayBook's creator, RIM, is the...

    Those Americans who follow the game of politics generally miss - especially in the light of todays global setting - that all things are working to this end. If the leaders of the American political spectrum - Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, Michael Savage, President Obama, Harry Reid, Chris Dodd, Barney Frank, Bill and Hillary Clinton, John McCain, Scott Brown, Nancy Pelosi, Katie Couric, Dick Cheney, Chris Matthews, Bill OReilly, etc. - truly comprehended the day and the hour in which we live, they would put aside all of their political agendas and ideological differences and preach with trembling fear, The...
