    The wife and I are heading to Palm Springs for a long delayed and overdue vacation in the morning.

I was hoping someone could suggest; Restaurants Activities Good values for a Spa Good values for Golf...
  • The Definition of a "Concern Troll" - The Most Important Thread of the Day (Vanity, but true)

    09/23/2010 10:11:25 AM PDT · by Scythian · 148 replies
    Concern trolling is a form of Internet trolling in which someone enters a discussion with claims that he or she supports the view of the discussion, but has concerns. In fact, the concern troll is opposed to the view of the discussion, and he or she uses concern trolling to sow doubt and dissent in the community of commenters or posters. Although this practice originated on the Internet, it has since spread to the real world as well, with concern trolls popping up in a variety of places from network television to op-ed columns. Artful concern trolling involves developing a...

  • A Darwinist Religious Experience Described

    A Darwinist Religious Experience Described April 11, 2009 — As millions of Jews just completed Passover, and as millions of Christians gather to celebrate Easter, a Darwinist reporter was experiencing “existential vertigo” – a sweeping sense of dizziness as her imagination zoomed in and out of the implications of her faith. It may be the closest thing that a secular materialist can call a religious experience. And religious experience is an accurate description: it was the outworking of an all-encompassing world view, with ultimate causes, ultimate destinies, moral imperatives, and heavy doses of faith. Amanda Gefter (see her previous attack...

    I know we have had several calls for boycotts of papers and of MSM stations, and those calls have extended to boycotting of advertisers. I am wondering if we had a place to post those advertisers we are targeting in an organized way, as well as a place to post an alternative to the product/company being advertised, it might have more impact on the advertisers and be easier for us remain in an active boycott of a product. I don't post many vanities, this may be my second on in 3 years. Sorry if it's annoying.

Yes, i understand how liberal MSM resists giving any help to mcCain, but can they ignore 1000 calls? or talk of boycott of its sponsors? Thanks ahead.

    It is common to hear folks betrayed by the Republican Party say things like: "The GOP is out of touch with its base..." Saying this is akin to a beaten house wife looking for something good in her abuser husband. "He'll change, I just need to pay attention to his needs..." My thoughts are that anyone who is still a member of the GOP is either suffering from Stockholm syndrome, or they support open borders. It is really that simple. Some people look to the GOP as an antithetical solution to B. Hussein Obama, but this is highly unfortunate manner...

    So far, all I've seen in this process is corruption, and more corruption, we have all this campaign finance law yet the election is stolen by "thuggery" long before the election begins, from insane caucuses, to delegates who vote against the peoples will, to back room deals ordering delegates to vote for a competitor as a weapon and on and on it goes. Let's not even mention that the supposed "god" chosen as the candidate could be so chosen before 98% of the Americans have a say in the process, and by liberal states no less. So I pose this...

The publicist, Patricia Green, gave no more details. Donda West died Saturday in a Los Angeles hospital. She was 58. A spokesman for the rapper released a one-sentence statement: "The family respectfully asks for privacy during this time of grief." An educator for 31 years, Donda West started her teaching career in the 1970s at Morris Brown College in...

    The story of this nation has been collectively written by the immigrant pen. Titled “The American Dream,” this wildly successful and popular tale is about to gain a new author. Yet instead of simply writing the next verse, this wave of immigrant authors seems intent on starting a new book. There is no longer satisfaction with building for the future; an entitlement culture has grown. This contemporary tale is to be authored by illegal immigrants, but the pen, paper, and publishing are paid for by the American taxpayer. Not offended yet? Soon. When reading this piece, remember that the term...

    This post will probably get pulled, but, I honestly want to know what has happened to Free Republic. In breaking news, some of it will stay there for weeks when it's old news. I used to check here first because you could count on Free Republic having the most "up to date" news than anyone on the net. Now, it's just like some of the other sites where you don't know if what you're reading is today or two weeks ago. Even the quick links at the top are outdated. You can go ahead and get mad but it's still...
  • Is President Bush Living In a Pre-911 World?

    The Bush administration refuses to take control of the Mexican border, despite 911 and the dangers such careless lax of security exposes our citizens to, and now the questionable outsourcing of control operations over six major U.S. ports to a company hosted out of a terrorist-sponsoring Middle-Eastern nation, a precarious enterprise which is endorsed and defended by the Bush administration to the outrage of many among both parties, Republicans and Democrats. Before 911, any political advantage and money contributions some Republicans thought they would gain from Corporate and big-Agra business which break U.S. laws through hire and exploitation of illegal...

    Democrats have filibustered many of Bush's Circuit Court nominees for over 2 years now. They have claimed that judicial nominees such as Owens, Brown and Pryor are just too extreme, out of the mainstream and unqualified to be put on the federal bench. Now it appears that they are going to do a 180 degree turn and allow an up or down vote on them. Weren't these judicial nominees of Bush just days and weeks ago unqualified and too extreme to be allowed an up or down vote? What has happened? That Democrats would lack the backbone to stick with...

    Dear Freepers,I'm getting old and perhaps a little wacky but as I look back over my life I continue to try and understand how my country hasn't quite turned out the way my mother and father brought me up to believe it should be and what it was I was always raised to defend. So I've started making a list of those things that just seem to represent a betrayal of what I always thought America is about...freedom. Its a short list, I'm still working on it and I know many, if not most, will not agree with everything on...
