  • Is Prayer/Veneration/Worship to Mary Biblical?

    The reason for this article is to determine if the worship/veneration given to Mary by the catholic church is justified from a Biblical perspective. This will be evaluated using the Biblical standard and not man’s standard.
  • Jesse Ventura denies fight ever happened with Navy Seal

    Conspiracy Theories ^ | 01/08/2012 | Jesse Ventura
    Jesse’s Statement: The event this man spoke of never happened. I have been to Mc P’s many times since leaving the Navy. I was never there alone. I was always accompanied by other people. If this happened 6 years ago, someone would have known of it before now. Certainly in the UDT/SEAL community it would have been known. This has to be news to all of us. I have always opposed the war in Iraq but I have never spoken or wished any ill will towards the soldiers. My heart aches that soldiers have died or been wounded because this...

    I admit it: My prediction that the Communist Party would fall by 2011 was wrong. Still, I'm only off by a year In the middle of 2001, I predicted in my book, The Coming Collapse of China, that the Communist Party would fall from power in a decade, in large measure because of the changes that accession to the World Trade Organization (WTO) would cause. A decade has passed; the Communist Party is still in power. But don't think I'm taking my prediction back. Don't believe any of this. China outperformed other countries because it was in a three-decade upward...

    I don't care what these slimebag women say because they are all liars. Gloria Allred is now a political operative. She's scum,too. I'm praying every day that Herman Cain survives these attacks and goes on to become THE REAL 1st Black President of these United States. Don't be fooled by these media attacks. Those country club republicans and the dirty dems are terrified of Herman Cain. Do everything you can to raise hell with you local media & start complaining, start calling your Congress & Senate critters. Herman is the real deal . If you let him down you have...
  • Hawaii now says it will NOT release Obama birth info: And we all go quiet again? *vanity*

    01/22/2011 1:55:28 PM PST · by cycle of discernment · 66 replies · 1+ views
    I see very little discussion here today about the insane rabbit chase, tap dance and convoluted story telling involving Hawaii governor Neil Abercrombie's "bold pronouncement" that he would, once and for all, shut up the birthers with present Obama's tangible, long form birth certificate proving he was born in Hawaii. Yet all he could find after weeks of investigating, was a "written-down" notation in the archives and even admitted a long form birth certificate 'may not exist'. Act II: Last night we hear Hawaii has clamped down on any further release of info re Obama's birth as "illegal' unless requested...
  • Important request

    01/10/2011 7:31:44 PM PST · by se_ohio_young_conservative · 8 replies
    Good Lord willing. When Gabrielle Giffords is able to recover enough to read, she will have letters from people like Sarah Palin and many other high profile people. She will also get thousands or millions of letters from regular people all over the world. There will probably be more than Gabrielle can read. But we all need to make sure we ALL send letters and emails. And send letters to all of the victims and their family if we can find a way. Our prayers are working. Keep praying
  • Does anyone else worry about the cops having possession of the shooter's computer? (VANITY)

    So after Sheriff Dupnik running his mouth about the shooter being incited by "vitriol" coming from cable news & radio, I started worrying about law enforcement having possession of this guy's computer. There is a clear effort being made by many, many people to blame this on the conservatives in this country. I'm not accusing anyone of anything but the thought crossed my mind that could someone "plant" evidence on his computer that he was following Glenn Beck, Palin, etc? Or am I just a tin foil hat freak???
  • Was Gabrielle Giffords targeted because she read the Constitution?

    Just saw the Congresswoman participating in the reading of the Constitution that was done on the House floor this week. The whacko that shot her professed in his YouTube rantings his disbelief in the Constitution. Could it be that he saw his Congresswoman reading the Constitution? The inevitable snap occurred and his decision was made?

    Fort Hood / JimRob Connection? Much has been said about Nidal Hasan's name appearing on p. 29 of that notorious "Homeland Security" thinktank's report. But did you know that on page 34 is this? -       James Robinson (Denver Health) In all likelihood, this is one and the same JR, since it's such a rarely seen name, and since Denver is practically right next door to Sacremento. This poses some serious questions, folks! What were JR and NH doing at the same conference, and when did they know it? What does this say about N. Hasan's connection with...

    I've never seen so many vanities on FR. Ever. And most by newbies, who perhaps don't understand what FR is meant to be. FR has ceased to be a place to evaluate the published word, and has degenerated into a sophomoric chatroom. Jim -- can you please provide guidance on what you'd like to see FR become? Can you let us know your thoughts on vanities, and explain how you'll enforce your policy regarding vanities? I personally feel that if the ratio of vanities to discussion of the published word continues to increase, FR will become a common chatroom for...

  • Why are we freaking out? Seriously?

    09/30/2008 3:55:19 PM PDT · by SouthernChick1 · 78 replies · 1,695+ views
    Poll averages have Obama up 4%. THAT'S IT! With an unpopular war, an unpopular president, a terrible economic fallout, and the liberal media glorifying Obama, you would think Obama would be up AT LEAST 10%. But he's not. All this favor for the democrats, and all Obama can manage is 4% over John McCain? Obama is going to lose this election. Handily. And this isn't just some pollyanna post, it's the truth. A bill will get passed, and the roar over the bad economy will fade somewhat. And, in the meantime, McCain will rebound in the polls with the help...

  • Cyberbullying on the Internet: Cyber bullies, cyber bullying, flame mail, hate mail

    08/02/2006 10:19:27 AM PDT · by EveningStar · 135 replies · 4,183+ views
    The Internet provides the perfect forum for cyberbullies, individuals whose aim is to gain gratification from the distress caused by provoking and tormenting others. The anonymity, ease of provocation, and almost infinite source of targets means the Internet is full of predators from pedophiles targeting children to serial bullies targeting ... anybody. Cyberbullies get a perverse sense of satisfaction (called gratification) from sending people flame mail and hate mail. Flame mail is an email whose contents are designed to inflame and enrage. Hate mail is hatred (including prejudice, racism, sexism etc) in an email...

    Regardless of the election results tonight (if we have them) it's time to repond to the elite media. Here are the names/phone nos. of the Investor Relations contacts at the respective entities. Call them and complain loudly about the ethics/integrity/et al of their media outlet. Check your own savings/investments. If you happen to own any of their stocks/bonds - sell them. Verify if any mutual funds you may hold have any stocks/bonds in these companies. If they do, sell the fund. Tell your friends, neighbors, reltives to do same. If you use AOL, cancel it. It's the only thing they...

    Was listening to Bill O'Reilly's Radio Factor. He did a story on the left-leaning groups behind some of the "9/11 families". He then interviewed Matthew Continetti who wrote the article (http://www.weeklystandard.com/Content/Public/Articles/000/000/003/854qqwpu.asp) leading to O'Reilly's investigation. My point, if I ever get to it, is that on tonight's O'Reilly Factor there'll be a segment on which will include discussions of groups such as Peaceful Tomorrows, The Tides Foundation, etc.

    <p>There have been way too many vanities lately. The news forum is being overrun with them. We have been spending a lot of time moving them to the General Interest ("Chat") forum. With the increased volume we have seen with the war starting, we have been missing mail and other moderator duties, such as zots. So, here's some guidelines for vanities. Of course, there are exceptions to these guidelines. We have seen some great vanities.</p>
  • Yet Another Vanity on Vanities - Message from Jim Robinson

    Our Fearless Founder ^ | 11/17/2000 | Jim Robinson
    <p>There is still a lot of confusion about vanity posts. I know that it doesn't look like it at the moment, but this forum was intended to be a place for conservatives to have somewhat serious discussions regarding government corruption and abuse and to try to discover a way to make progress toward returning to the constitutionally limited government as established by our Founders. The original idea of this forum was that our participants would post newspaper articles or other published information, or transcripts of congressional speeches, or other government or political information and then we would discuss these items. The forum was not intended to be a chatroom or comedy central. Some chat and some comedy is acceptable, but it tends to get out of control. The easiest way to control it is to restrict vanity (non-sourced) posts. If you want to take the time to write and post an informed commentary piece or a first-hand report on some newsworthy event, please do. But the short comments and rants, etc, can just as easily be posted as a reply to an existing article as was intended by our original design.</p>
