We were in the heart of the Clinton impeachment scandals (1998). Also the Elian Gonzalez saga. The screen name seemed appropriate.

After W was sworn in, a number of other FReepers encouraged me to change my screen name, but I declined because I still feared for the future of the Republic. Jes' sayin' that the...

    Sorry it reduced your competence so dramatically. A first-year law student knows that the role of the Supreme Court is to rule on the legality of a law, not to interpret what it might say. As the Chief Justice of the highest court in the land, you have irreparably damaged the legal system of the United States of America and the separation of powers between branches. The chaos that will ensue will render our our entire legal system useless, and have the potential to bring about the collapse of our entire way of life. Benjamin Franklin tells us that a...

    "The Confederate Flag Is The Legacy Of Democrats, Not Republicans" was the word put out by Rush Limbaugh just hours before Republican Governor Nikki Haley appeared with Republican Senators Lindsey Graham and Tim Scott to call for removal of the Confederate Flag from the Statehouse grounds in Columbia, SC. Atlanta talk show host Erick Erickson of RedState.com also came out for flag removal. Posters here on FR have amplified their views. Much of the spin again associates Democrats with the Confederate Flag to justify the latest cave in to Leftist pressure. But I remember one such Democrat from South Carolina,...

    Calling for the removal of the Confederate Flag from South Carolina’s Capitol in the wake of a national tragedy, the assigned symbol of one man’s hate and paranoia, is ironically both defensible and predictably shortsighted. What rabid activists conveniently forget is that the Confederate Flag – which still wavers at the behest of state law - was never derived as a proud beacon of slavery; after all, even at the height of the Antebellum period less than 2% of all Americans owned slaves. Slavery was a means to an end, an economic mechanism utilized to compete with foreign competitors and...

    You won't find this on any local news, but what is happening is a crime on a massive scale. Here's the story. My friend works at a section 8 apartment complex, which means that the taxpayers pay most of the rent there. Last week he sent me this picture of a late model Jaguar parked at his complex. His caption of the picture was "Section 8, rent always late". I asked him how much was their rent. "It just went up, to $80." A MONTH?!! "A month." This means that taxpayers are providing the Jag owner over $1,000 a month...

    The words of the former New York Governor and Democrat icon Mario Cuomo rang out loud and clear some 30 years ago. "I am personally opposed to abortion but" would pretty much sum up Cuomo's message. Yesterday that message was echoed on the issue of gay marriage by the Republican governor of North Carolina in a statement entitled "Governor McCrory defends Constitution". Governor Pat McCrory noted his own 'sincerely held religious beliefs that marriage is between a man and a woman'. But then we got this: "Whether it is the president, governor, mayor, a law enforcement officer, or magistrate, no...

The legislature has been acting, though, the House passing a bill to allow government officials to object to gay marriage, the bill now in the Senate as Senate Bill 2. But today Governor McCrory says he will veto the bill. A news release describing it is headlined "Governor McCrory defends Constitution". McCrory speaks of 'sincerely held religious beliefs...

And they’ve gone through the Clinton admininistration and the Bush administration and each successive administration has said that somehow these communities are going to regenerate and they have not. So it’s not surprising then that they get bitter and they cling to guns or religion or antipathy toward people who aren’t like them...

The problem is that unless you read every review, you wouldn't have known that. Instead, the collective conclusion from the web yesterday was that the Apple Watch flopped with early reviews. There were 21 Apple Watch reviews published, but the 4 reviews that were more critical of the device got the most attention, leaving the 14 glowing reviews behind. Meanwhile, most of the important features of the Watch such...

Lynch, as you may remember, has been characterized as "Eric Holder in a skirt." She committed, under oath, to continue to push Holder's unconstitutional anti-gun executive amnesty. She is in favor of a semi-auto ban, which should be of interest at a time when the Justice Department is using every means possible to ban semi-autos by executive fiat. In addition, when asked about the central pillar of Barack Obama's anti-gun push -- the universal background...

I would like to take a different approach here. I would like to hear my Protestant brethren explain these words of Christ from the Cross:My God, my God, why have you forsaken me? What does it mean? Why did He say it?
