    Donald Trump Jr. is furious with Instagram because he says the social media platform issued a warning to users searching his name. After noticing a massive loss of followers in the past few weeks, President Trump’s oldest son claimed to have discovered a warning message issued to Instagram users and expressed his outrage in a post to the platform Friday night. He tagged Mark Zuckerberg, the CEO of Facebook, which owns Instagram. “REALLY?!?! Are you fricken kidding me? @zuck this is insane,” he wrote. “I get that my 3 year old Chloe can be pretty aggressive as are a few...
  • Losing friends over Palin (Have you ever lost friends over politics ?)

    05/31/2010 9:46:47 PM PDT · by se_ohio_young_conservative · 415 replies · 5,475+ views
    I have lost THREE real life friends now in trying to defend Sarah Palin. On one hand I tend to think the people who call her stupid are not the kind of people I even want as friends anyhow. However, I wonder if im being too harsh and going too far. I know our country was divided on President Bush. But the division and the hatred for Sarah Palin has been able to top anything. Before Palin, I had a much more positive outlook on people (especially women, mothers, ect) and life in general. Now I find myself seeing people...

    After 10 years and many thousands of replies, I am leaving FR. I don't really care, and I don't know why anyone else would. I am leaving before I am banned (again). Truth doesn't seem to matter on FR. I don't know if it is donations or sympathetic opinions that do, but I have been suspended twice when I followed the rules and the people who complained to the moderators didn't, yet the moderators sided with them. For the record, evolution is a fact and the Shroud of Turin is a fraud. I would prove it if the admin moderators...

    PORTSMOUTH, N.H. - Hillary Rodham Clinton's eyes welled up and her voice broke repeatedly Monday as she talked with voters in a restaurant about her campaign for the presidency. The former first lady was making a last-minute pitch for support as she spoke on the eve of the state's primary, with polls showing her trailing Democratic rival Barack Obama. Asked by a sympathetic voter how she keeps going in the grueling campaign, she replied, "It's not easy. It's not easy." "And I couldn't do it if I just didn't, you know, passionately believe it was the right thing to do,"...
  • Romney Falling Victim to Voters' Religious Discrimination

    Sometimes things happen in American politics that make no sense at all. We are experiencing just one of those moments in the 2008 presidential campaign.I thought that the concept of a religious test for public office in our country was put to bed once and for all when John Kennedy, a Catholic, was elected president in 1960 and Joe Lieberman, an Orthodox Jew, was nominated for vice president in 2000. Now we have a candidate with a record of accomplishment, Mitt Romney, who is consistently lagging in the polls with the most credible reason being that significant numbers of Republican...
  • New Orleans Mayor Says Racism Hampering Recovery

    (AP) INDIANAPOLIS -- The mayor of New Orleans blames racism and government bureaucracy for hampering the city's ability to both weather Hurricane Katrina and recover from it. Ray Nagin is convinced things would've been different had the storm hit Orange County, California, or Miami Beach. And he's telling the National Association of Black Journalists that the storm exposed what he calls "the soft underbelly of America as it relates to dealing with race and class." In his speech, Nagin also suggested that state and federal officials would prefer New Orleans remain a smaller city. It now has just over half...
  • Former Atlanta Mayor Andy Young blames Jews, Koreans and Arabs for "ripping off" Blacks.

    In an interview, Young was asked whether he was concerned that Wal-Mart causes smaller, mom-and-pop stores to close. ``Well, I think they should; they ran the 'mom and pop' stores out of my neighborhood,'' the paper quoted Young as saying. ``But you see, those are the people who have been overcharging us, selling us stale bread and bad meat and wilted vegetables. And they sold out and moved to Florida. I think they've ripped off our communities enough. First it was Jews, then it was Koreans and now it's Arabs; very few black people own these stores.'' Young said he...

I have started posting on the site and became aware of an interesting and disgusting policy on. The troll policy is described as follows in the FAQ: "Dealing with trolls Trolling is a sad reality of internet life. Most trolls tend to be blatant, posting comments or diaries that are clearly intended to provoke an angry response. Other trollish messages are posted simply to disrupt the conversation in a diary.

  • The American taxpayer speaks (does he ever!) to the Tax Panel.

    It may indeed by that the members of the Tax Panel, collectively, cannot read but there is no doubt that the American Taxpayer at large is giving that opportunity (AND IN SPADES). Here are the first few General Comments to them after their recent pontification that "reform" really is not needed, but just a bit of tinkering. All but about 6 or so comments have been included - some with "Subject" line where appropriate. Some are: funny, sad, biting, reflective, even discerning or not well informed. All are expressions of the American system. The Panel would do well to read...

    The Washington Times reports that Karl Rove was "very involved" in President Bush's selection of Harriet Miers to be an associate justice of the Supreme Court. This should put to rest the notion that Mr. Rove is a political genius. -snip- The world is made up of doers and kibitzers. We in the chattering classes are kibitzers. Many, like Mr. Will, have convinced themselves that thinking and writing about what other people do is more important than actually doing stuff. It isn't. Harriet Miers is a doer. She practiced law where it matters most, in the courtroom. She was managing...

    9-04-05 John Roberts Is Being Victimized Because He's a Catholic By Timothy Walch Mr. Walch is the director of the Herbert Hoover Presidential Library Museum in West Branch, Iowa, a historian of American Catholicism, and a writer for the History News Service. There's a whiff of religious intolerance swirling around as the Senate approaches its hearings next week on the Supreme Court nomination of John G. Roberts Jr. Because he's a devout Catholic, some senators -- even Catholic senators -- suggest that he's too deferential to the teaching authority of the Catholic Church to serve on the Court. The charges...

    Welp, I learned today that my annulment has moved not a single inch in the last 60 days. It's been 14 months since I began this journey and it appears, based on how it's moved to date that my case is never going to be decided. 10 months to another full year. My parish offers me and my wife ZIP in the way of support but they sure like getting those envolopes with a check from us each month. Being denied would be better than this--at least we would have some notion of what we needed to do besides wait....

    US tech giant IBM plans to increase its payroll in India this year by 14,000 workers, even as it cuts 13,000 jobs in Europe and the United States, a labor group said on Friday. The shift, first reported by The New York Times, highlights the transfer of some skilled jobs to low-wage countries such as India by a number of companies including IBM, the world's largest information technology company. The moves in India were indicated in what was claimed to be an internal company document posted on the website of the Washington Alliance of Technology Workers, of Washtech, which seeks...

    What is happening to Free Republic Mr. Robinson? The Bush Haters and Republican Haters are getting louder and more daring by the hour. These phony conservatives who claim the Conservatism purity are savagely attacking President Bush and the GOP as bad as the worst liberals. The Bash Bush feast is becoming a part of every thread. Everywhere you see Bush is a traitor, Bush wants to sell our sovereignty to Mexico, Bush is a liberal, Bush has no spine, Bush is destroying our economy, Bush is puppet in Vincent Fox hand, Bush is this Bush is that, everything wrong in...

    I have long thought that the issue of illegal immigration would split the GOP base if Bush continued his policy of compassion for everyone but legal US citizens. But the pro-life camp hung in their even though they too mostly opposed illegal immigration. Well has Bush managed to alienate the pro-lifers too. Hell even many Democrats are aghast that what the government is allowing to happen in Fla. It will take time for the scope of this betrayal to sink in, but when it does it will become clear that the current GOP is not up to the task of...

    Rule of Law Damaged by Schiavo Billby Sheldon Richman, March 23, 2005 The events surrounding the life of Terri Schiavo are tragic enough. Now congressional Republicans and President Bush have made things worse. In one weekend they disabled federalism, the separation of powers, and the rule of law. These principles were embraced by the Founding Fathers because they tend to protect individual liberty. By tearing them down, the Republican leadership jeopardizes our freedom. How ironic that this comes at the hands of the self-proclaimed party of limited government. It is beyond dispute that the legal issues involved in the Schiavo...

    President Bush demonstrated a steady command of every issue last night. All I see on Fox is a simple quote about being steady in the war on terror. But they keep playing Kerry's laundry lists of complaints. And everyone is manufacturing discussion of how Bush "jumped" up to answer questions, etc., even though the President behaved as a gentleman and statesman.Bush made numerous points against Kerry's record and proposed plans. I am not seeing those either. It's as if Bush had no memorable lines, and he had many. And they are not touching Kerry's pathetic statement that Sadamm would "not...
