    Now what? Pretty clear she broke the law in an attempt to disable FOIA inquiries and hide whatever she was hiding from public view. Did I mention she had the Ambassador to Kenya fired during her tenure for doing pretty much the same thing? I like that little detail. Shows real determination on her part. But what now? If she isn't indicted, we have moved into a totally new dimension where outright and provable corruption is permitted by high officials. On the other hand, if she is indicted, we are in banana republic zone where candidates for President are under...

    05/25/2016 8:51:10 AM PDT · by Cubs Fan · 37 replies
    I can remember for years a lot of the talk radio people saying that liberals were "well intentioned, but misguided." That may have been true once, but if it was the case years ago, it is not anymore. Just look at the anti trumpers and their rioting or the black lives matter filth storming the stage at a Yiannopoulis event and you can see what liberals really are today--viscious, fascist, thugs trying to shut down free speech with violence and intimidation. Is there any way that these people can be thought of as "well intentioned?" The answer is clearly NO.

    My Pine64 Media Center Several months back, I participated in a Kickstarter campaign for the PINE A64, First $15 64-Bit Single Board Super Computer. The campaign started in December of 2015, and was designed to fund the production of a 64-bit computer on a card for the masses priced at $15. Initial estimated delivery was January or February. Their initial estimates on shipping were somewhat optimistic, as I just received mine the other day (5/21/2016). Reading through some of the comments on the project, some people were rather bent out of shape about the shipping delays, which is something I...

What if Jesus Christ could have saved...Hitler, Stalin, Mao, Margaret Sanger? He does have the power, he just doesn't bully you, if you really don't want him, he won't force himself on you. Hillary can choose to be Jesus' friend. That's between the two of them. Our imaginary hatred of a spectre we call "Hillary" is something in our own heads.

    These are the basic facts. A homeless schizophrenic man, Leon Walls, stabbed a man, Jobe Wright, on a street. Walls then ran into a nearby Target, where Wright and some friends, including Michael Turner, pursued him. One of the pursuing men called police. They located Walls in the store, and Walls grabbed a teenage girl, threatening her with a knife. He said he wanted to leave the store, but the men said he wasn't leaving until police got there. Walls then started stabbing the girl, and the men subdued him. One of them had brought a baseball bat with him...

    every time I fill up my car, I suspect all the different octane gasoline are exactly the same, 91 octane. The only difference is what it is called (eg. gold) and the price. Gas company puts in the same octane gas, with a little advertising, gets more money by calling it gold or premium plus. It is all marketing. Unsuspecting driver feels better buying higher price gas for their beloved car. Any one likes to comment.

    I think we all agree that the quality of the opuses here on Free Republic has dropped considerably. Yes, I know that the plural of opus is opera. To me, opera is just some people putting themselves on a stage and waving their arms around and screaming something that nobody understands. By golly, that is exactly what the opus writers do. Still, the dictionary assures me that "opuses" is also a correct plural form of "opus". If you don't like it, well, write that into your opus....in Italian.

    Anyone else think Kasich must have had a gentlemen's agreement with Trump? Why else would he stay in the race for weeks/months after it was obvious his polls weren't going much higher? Though he didn't have much hope of winning, his staying in divided the "not Trump" vote, siphoning valuable votes and momentum away from Cruz. Just my two cents. I wouldn't be surprised at all to see Kasich as the VP nominee, especially since he could deliver Ohio in November.

Rubio did well in Virginia and will also help in Nevada. This leaves Ohio for Trump to win. It also helps him compete in Minnesota and New Mexico. This will allow Trump to put resources in the some of the Northeast states making Hillary compete in states they would not normally compete in.
