  • A modern day Faustian bargain

    02/09/2012 6:59:00 AM PST · by shoff · 6 replies
    Examiner ^ | 02/08/2012 | Steven Hoffman
    Faust is the main character in a German legend of a smart, important man in the local village that is bored with his life. He decides to call up the devil and make a bargain. In exchange for even more knowledge and power he agrees to sell his soul. This fairy tale like so many others ends happily as Faust is forgiven in the end. This story has been repeated many times from “The Devil and Daniel Webster” to “The Devil went down to Georgia” but it seems the lessons haven’t.

  • Dickens' Birthday - Is Ebenezer Scrooge a Republican or a Democrat?

    02/07/2012 3:28:43 PM PST · by pinochet · 23 replies · 1+ views
    Today, we celebrate the 200th anniversary of the birth of the English writer, Charles Dickens. His best known work, is his 1843 novel, "A Christmas Carol", which featured a greedy, selfish, and heartless businessman, Ebenezer Scrooge. The businessman was visited by three ghosts, from the past, present, and future, who forced him to reconsider his selfish ways. In the 1980s, the satirical Mad Magazine featured caricatures of Republican politicians praising Scrooge as a hard working businessman who created jobs for the Victorian economy. He refused to give people time off to spend Christmas with their families, which made him a...
  • Sign petition objecting to HHS mandate!

    Sign the petition objecting to the Obama administration's HHS mandate, which would force religious employers to violate their consciences by buying health insurance that covers contraceptives and abortifacients (not medical or surgical 'abortions,' but drugs that can act as abortifacients in certain cases). This is a White House petition, meaning that the administration must respond if we reach 25,000 signatures. The petition has 22,092 signatures as of this writing. Will the administration back off and expand the religious exemption? I'm not holding my breath. But we must stand on principle for religious liberty and against this federal bureaucracy's mandates.

    Last night's Dorito's ad was apparently meant to be "funny". A dog seems to be responsible for a missing cat's disappearance and he bribes a guy with Doritos to keep silent. If we find this offensive, are we too sensitive? Is it wrong to request Doritos to kill this ad? They suggest the dog killed and buried the cat , or even worse. My best friend's cat was killed by a dog a few year's ago.

To drop this ACLU community organizer into the White House has been the biggest and most dangerous joke on America in its history! Obama is the furthest from anything describing a POTUS.

    If no current GOP Presidential candidate garners more than 50% of delegates during the primary, Republican delegates can have the opportunity to vote for anyone they wish, whether or not they are currently a candidate. This is called a brokered convention If you were a delegate, would you prefer one of the current candidates or consider somebody currently not in the race? To make this more intriguing, we paired off potential and current candidates like a sports tournament pairing - choose one person per each match up for each round. Round 1.

  • Why It's Not Worth Slamming Newt Gingrich, Rick Santorum on Earmarks

    02/02/2012 5:54:51 PM PST · by writer33 · 12 replies
    The nation is extricating itself from two costly wars, is struggling painfully out of a recession, and is suffering from near complete dysfunction in Congress. And yet, campaigns are still trotting out the old standby—criticism of earmarks and congressional travel. Both former House Speaker Newt Gingrich and former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum have been slammed on the campaign trail for agreeing to (or sponsoring) earmarks in Congress, the suggestion being that the men are not real conservatives if they backed such supposedly wasteful spending. It's true that some of the earmarks—which are just dedicated projects in the federal budget—are probably...

Dead wrong.This doesn't change the fact that I was dead right about Newt's upset win in South Carolina. All the pundits were predicting a close election or a narrow win for Newt. I was alone in predicting a blow-out. The only thing I was wrong about is UNDER estimating his margin of victory. Not to make excuses, but I had sources on the ground in South Carolina. In Florida, I was limited to looking at news, polls...

    Dear Sarah, I hope you are enjoying this year's fight for the Republican Presidential nomination. However, many of us out here are not pleased with the trashing, backed by Big Money, that Romney and his minions have heaped on Gingrich - mostly based on falsehoods. Romney and his backers in the MSM and the Old Guard of the Republican Party (Rove, McCain, Dole, et al) are trying their hardest to once again hoodwink the party base. In order to upset the establishment and to garner favor among those of us who are Tea-Partying conservatives, I would encourage you to send...

    EARTH TO PIERS MORGAN I was just watching an interview conducted by Piers Morgan with family of Newt Gingrich after the Florida primary. He was quite cutting about Newt's "graceless, impolite" demeanour at times (no kidding, Einstein). Apparently the Gingrich family were too polite to mention that tapping phones and intercepting private e-mail is not exactly considered polite and gracious. I gather the interview is to set-up the plan B Obama attack on his adversary, if not Romney, then Gingrich -- portray the Speaker as angry, unstable and moody. Well dude(s), America is now angry, unstable and moody. Get used...

    Four down, forty-six to go! First, I would like to Congratulate Mitt Romney! No, really! Between he and his Super PAC, Team Romney dumped over 25 million dollars into Florida since the beginning of the campaign which, along with the diabolical coordination with formerly credible GOP media personalities in a massive Establishment smear campaign, resulted in Mitt Romney getting less than 200,000 votes more than he got four years ago! The result was a plurality win in a four-person primary where only two candidates even attempted to win the state. At least as impressive a performance as winning a basketball...

His ONLY accomplishments in government are liberal, ie, tax payer funded abortion, gay marriage, gun control, RomneyCare, mandates, etc. He is Obama-lite. Are these voters uninformed, terrified, brainwashed, or just plain nuts?

    Everybody here, myself included, is desperate that Romney not be the Republican candidate for president. I suggest that the most cost-effective way of accomplishing that would be to bring Natural Born Citizen ballot eligibility suits against him in a few states, and try to get a few rulings in our favor before the RNC convention. I have read that there is no evidence that Romney's father was naturalized before Romney's birth. If he is found to be ineligible anywhere before the convention, his delegates won't matter. Worst case there would be a brokered convention. Why isn't anyone trying this? Lack...

Vice-President Richard Nixon was assigned the task of escorting Khrushchev throughout Gotham. Upon greeting Khrushchev in the lobby of the Waldorf, the Soviet Premier declared to Nixon, "I want to meet this incredible man." Nixon, slightly taken aback by Khrushchev's earnestness replied, "What man is this Mr. Premier?'
