  • Ebola and Taking Temperatures with Forehead Thermometers

    To check for Ebola in airports, they are taking temperatures using forehead thermometers. It seems to me all someone would have to do is use a paper towel and put cool water on the forehead just before the temperature is taken.
  • Habit and Voting.

    09/30/2014 10:20:54 AM PDT · by Jacquerie · 9 replies
    We do most things in our lives out of habit. Each of us has various routines that outline our day, family and lives. This isn’t to say we shouldn’t step back now and then to consider change for the sake of improvement, for we should, yet just as the sun follows a predictable yearly path, man has a natural tendency to favor the familiar and regular. So, out of habit I will vote in the mid-term election. Aside from local and state officers, my representative Steve Southerland (FL-2) is in a tight race against a legacy candidate, the daughter of...
  • The Meaning of Crony Capitalism

    Vanity | 9/29/2014 | jespasinthru
    Last year I took an Ethics class at school. Our professor gave us a lecture about the pros and cons of Capitalism. And at the end of the lecture, he asked us if we could define "crony capitalism". We all drew a blank. We'd all heard the phrase, but we didn't quite understand it. So he broke it down to us in very simplistic terms: "Let's sat that you own a cow. And your neighbor owns one hundred cows. But he's so greedy that he wants your cow, too. So he bribes corrupt politicians to pass laws that will take...

    When I was growing up, my mother made me write and send Thank You notes to each and every person who ever gave me a gift—Christmas gifts, birthday gifts, graduation gifts, you name it. It’s a habit I carried into adulthood. When my wife and I were married, we had Thank You cards in the mail within a week of the occasion. We have been blessed with a 17-year-old son. Ever since he’s been old enough to grasp a pen, he has been sending out Thank You cards for every gift received on every occasion. It’s only right and proper....
  • FaceBook Page of the Muslim Oklahoma Beheader

    Another Freeper just shared the information to this FaceBook Page of the OK beheader. I thought it's interesting and informative enough that should have its thread of its own. Some of the comments are statements like It's somewhat interesting to see his conversion to ISLAM. About a year ago his postings were relatively normal, like excited about his new job, about the SuperBowl, and typical jive talk stuff." His rantings become insane as soon as he obviously became Muslim. " Dnt yall knw why the Eastern part of the world hates Amerika? Everything God says don't do Amerika does. 1.Don't...

    Tennesseeans, this is what I wrote for my fellow parishioners, making the case that we ought to consider leaving the GOVERNOR line blank, and just voting Pro-Life YesOn1. Your comments, please? I personally am convinced that the governor's election means nada, since Haslam is going to win unless Christ comes again, or a supercaldera blows somewhere to the West of Memphis and destroys our beloved RockyTop altogether. So the best thing we can do --- owing to math generated by the "dual majority" or "supermajority" mechanism of amending the Constitution --- is to skip the governor race and boost...
  • Did You Know That the Emperor Nero Engaged in Two Public Same Sex Marriages?

Nero, a depraved first-century emperor, married at least two men. He wed Pythagoras in a formal same-sex wedding by first putting on a bridal veil that made Nero the "bride" and Pythagoras the "groom." Every symbol of a classical marriage was present at this ceremony: a dowry, marriage bed, torches, and witnesses. Tacitus, the great Roman...

After a month of testing and $1.73 million in congressional spending, a special Presidential commission presented the following findings: 1.The stamp is in perfect order. 2. There is nothing wrong with the glue. 3. People are spitting on the wrong side.

    Americans have to face the painful reality that Arabs are, when judged by 21st century Western Standards, a crazy people. This is not meant as an insult. Early this year, the Iraqi parliament proposed a law that would permit men to marry 9 year old girls. The law had the support of a majority of parliament. The law would also permit men to beat up and rape their wives, and prevent women from leaving the house without the permission of the husband. These SOBS are supposed to be the allies of America in the fight against ISIS. The Shia regime...

It is not at all unusual to strike up a conversation with an absolute stranger in this generally congenial environment. While refueling the car, I was approached by a 50ish black gentleman who commented that the United States was becoming Mexico. He said Mexican workers were everywhere and that he was an independent contractor struggling to survive. He said he likes Mexican people and they are hard workers, but they were making it impossible to earn a living. Said he worked hard all his life, and...

    I haven't subscribed to cable TV for many years, relying instead on several online streaming and downloading services for the entertainment and news programs I'm interested in.

    I think this is a classic example of what happens when a law enforcement agency isn't trained or prepared for an unexpected or exceptionally large event. Ferguson is a city of 21,000 people. Its police department has 52 sworn officers. Only three are black, when about 68% of the city's population is black. This imbalance affects the current situation tangentially, but I doubt that it's a problem that the City of Ferguson is unaware of or that they haven't tried to fix it. Anytime a white police officer kills or seriously injures a minority citizen in a predominately minority community,...

    Is it possible to justify any further Muslim immigration to the West, given the horrors that Isis has perpetrated? If Moderate Muslim nations exist, why are they not speaking out against the killings of Christians and other religious minorities? How can you explain the fact that highly Westernized Muslims with British and American accents, who have received the best Western education available, are abandoning the West and joining Isis? Isis is not the problem - Islam is the problem. Yesterday it was Al Qaeda, today it is Isis. Tommorrow, the enemies of Christians will come up with another name. But...

    Look at the map below. You'll see four regions of "Iraq and Syria" that the "Islamic State of Iraq and Syria" express no desire to conquer: Why is that? All four of these areas are where non-Sunni Muslims predominate. They include Southern Iraq (Shiites), Northwestern Iraq (Iraqi Kurdistan), Syria just north of Lebanon (Alawites and Shiites) and the area surrounding the Golan Heights (Druze and Shiites). So why would ISIS fight so bitterly for largely Kurdish Erbil and Mosul, yet make no claim to what is officially Kurdistan? Because Erbil and Mosul are Iraqi centers of Christendom, the real target...

This time the justification is to combat ISIS, in the past is was alleged Assad used chemical weapons. In June 2013 Obama said Assad used chemical weapons, the he had crossed the "red line", and that therefore the US was justified in training and arming moderate Syrian rebels.[2] Yet in early 2012 the CIA had been working with Turkey to arm these groups[3] and in September 2012 Petraeus was visiting...

During negotiations between royalist and parliamentary forces in 1643, Charles I itemized his demands and authority: 1. Charles I proclaimed to be limited by law and parliament.

    In case you have not noticed, opposition to gay rights and gay marriage is weakening, even in conservative Christian churches. One friend suggested that many unmarried men who are heavily involved in church activities are stereotypical good boys, who maintain long periods of avoidance of heterosexual sex, which makes them more inclined to gay feelings. Is this true? A lot of men involved in church choirs seem more feminine than average. The grandson of the famous televangelist, Oral Roberts, recently announced he is gay: http://www.christianpost.com/news/oral-roberts-grandson-discusses-coming-out-as-a-homosexual-52483/ Sons of many famous conservative Christians are ending up gay, such as the sons of...

    A question for the aviation buffs on this forum. I was told at one time, that the F-16 was an inherently unstable aircraft, and that without assistance from it computers, no human pilot would be able to fly the aircraft. Then I saw this video, (see link below), of a quarter scale, radio controlled F-16, in the colors of the Royal Dutch Air Force demonstration team. I would think that there is not enough room in the model or money in the owner’s bank account to include flight control computers. So my question is; “How is the unstable F-16 model...
