  • Nostalgia, The Good Old Days – Who Needs Them?

    Nostalgia, The Good Old Days – Who Needs Them? America needs a visionary for the future! During the past, and recent presidential election we hear the all too familiar suggestion of “returning to the good old days.” Every candidate talk about returning America to a sense of values. I don’t know about you but each time I hear, or heard that suggestion I get a little queasy in the stomach accompanied by a little bewilderment, confusion, and absolute disgust! Whenever I hear the suggestion I often wonder exactly what period in time they want to take us back to! Could...

    I went to Target to check on shirts. I see a well dressed gentleman, probably in his thirties. This guy had a pale blue dress shirt lined with thin vertical stripes in a darker tone, he wore a brocaded, sapphire blue tie, slate grey pants with the cleaner's crease still there, his shoes, Florshiem and shiny black. I don't usually notice or give a damn what others wear. It looked to me as though he was capable of making his own mind up, instead, he passively waits and watches someone chose for him. My own attire, while always clean, is...

    BBC July 23, 2013 A 25-year-old Ukrainian man has appeared in court charged with the "terrorist-related" murder of 82-year-old Mohammed Saleem in Birmingham. West Midlands Police said that Pavlo Lapshyn has also been charged in relation to explosions at three mosques. Mohammed Saleem was stabbed as he walked home after prayers from a mosque in Small Heath on 29 April. Mr Lapshyn was remanded in custody to appear at the Old Bailey on Thursday. Mr Lapshyn, who comes from the eastern Ukrainian city of Dnipropetrovsk, appeared in the dock at Westminster Magistrates' Court flanked by three police officers. He was...

    Support for same-sex marriage has risen across the board in the last four years, new polling data shows, signalling a shift in the overall political and social views of Americans. The new data, released Wednesday by the Pew Forum on Religion and Public Life, shows a higher percentage of Democrats, Republicans, whites, minorities and people of all generations support same-sex marriage legalization.... Among voting groups, there has been an increase in support for same-sex marriage even among Republicans. Since 2008, Democrats have jumped in support from 50 to 65 percent; Republicans from 19 to 24 percent; and Independents from 44...

    Daily Caller ^ | 10/12/2010 | Alex Pappas
    A watchdog group is questioning whether Democratic Sen. Barbara Boxer could have been more transparent over a year ago in voluntarily disclosing the extent of her past mortgages with the company Countrywide. But Boxer aides strongly argue that the watchdog group’s complaints are without merit and suggest the questions are suspiciously timed, considering how the California senator is locked in a tough re-election fight. Boxer, as chairwoman of the Senate Ethics Committee, led a yearlong investigation beginning in 2008 into whether two Democratic senators acted improperly by being part of a VIP Countrywide program that gave influential clients favorable treatment....
  • All non-Christians are Satanists - all trolls are ZOTTED

    09/28/2010 8:41:58 AM PDT · by Josh Martins · 80 replies
    Many seem to think that Satanists are simply people that worship Satan voluntarily and practice witchcraft. However, that is wrong. I would like to widen the definition of "Satanist" to all those who do not accept Christ. As Luke 11:23 says, all those who are not with Christ are against Him. By not accepting Christ, one supports Satan, regardless of whether he/she knows it or not. Every rejection of Christ grows Satan stronger. Jews and Muslims think they oppose Satan, although they are actually supporting him by not following Christ. Members of non-Abrahamic religions and non-religious people lack a belief...

    I witnessed a disaster in the desert while working for the Arizona Republic as a reporter and metro columnist. In July 1997, police officers in the Phoenix suburb of Chandler, AZ, paired up with Border Patrol agents to round up illegal immigrants. The operation resulted in the apprehension and deportation of more than 400 illegal immigrants. But, the net ensnared anyone who looked Hispanic - i.e. , brown skin, Spanish accents. There was a state investigation into the roundup, and — during that inquiry — one Chandler police officer said that the tell-tale sign for him was a “smell’ common...

    With the Bush administration ending and the Obama administration beginning, it is worth pondering John McCain’s gracious concession speech, giving due consideration to the ways in which the political opposition behaved during the tenures of our last two presidents. Even though President Bill Clinton governed as a centrist and most of his major accomplishments were ripped from the conservative playbook (balancing the federal budget, passing a major free trade act, enacting dramatic reforms of the country’s welfare program), he inspired a visceral hatred from the base of the Republican Party. Perhaps it was his draft dodging, his inveterate extramarital liaisons,...

They seek to demoralize and dash the hopes of hard working Americans who just want to exercise their constitutional right to vote. One elderly voter was...

    Friends: If you've been listening to the news and poll results this past week, you're probably thinking the election on Tuesday is a mere formality at this point, and that the outcome is all but pre-ordained. Nothing could be further from the truth. Did you know, for instance, that pollster John Zogby predicted Barack Obama would beat Hillary Clinton in the California Presidential Primary by 13 points? She won by 9.6 percent. That's nearly a TWENTY-THREE POINT DIFFERENCE (result vs. poll prediction). The same exact thing happened in many other States. How can any "professional" pollster be off by TWENTY-THREE...

The truth is, this is a "Blue Star Family" pin honoring a son in service. Apparently the left has no idea what this pin is or they hope enough gullible people don't look into it.

    Lets not keep requesting for same sex marriage. Lets demand that one woman and one man marriges no longer get the benefits that type of marriage receives from federal and state government. When they realize that they have no power of decision making over the health of their mate, that neither one can inherit the social security or the estate they have built and that they loose all the benefits just for the entitlement of one man and one woman marriage certificate. That will stop the religious and political push to change the US Constitution or any state constitution.

This could be Jeb’s time, and the best shot he will ever have. He would have no latino problem, being loved in Florida.

    By now, readers will know who I favor in the Democratic race. Here's my most considered case. But what of the GOP? For me, it comes down to two men, Ron Paul and John McCain. That may sound strange, because in many ways they are polar opposites: the champion of the surge and the non-interventionist against the Iraq war; the occasional meddling boss of Washington and the live-and-let-live libertarian from Texas. But picking a candidate is always a mix of policy and character, of pragmatism and principle. And what these two mavericks share, to my mind, is a modicum of...

Basically, I have a communist *ss of a friend, and I keep telling him that a) Iraq posed a threat to U.S. Security and harbored WMD. and b) There is a link between Osama bin Laden and Saddam...

Hunt, Hunt's CEO, said in a statement. Hunt, who is also on the board of Halliburton, has been a key fundraiser for President George W. Bush, who named him to the President's Foreign Intelligence Advisory Board.

    I will be one of the first to admit the entire violent incident involving the Jena Six is a disgrace, not only to our justice system, but to our society as a whole.
  • Plea to webmaster: Let Us Rate Posts and Comments

    I spend a few minutes each day staying in touch with pop culture and news; Digg, Youtube, and Freerepublic are my mainstays. I have discovered, as I'm sure most readers have, that the comments and discussion of an article or post is as, if not more, interesting, funny, and informative as the original article. The problem is wading thru all the mediocre comments (often 100's) for the real gems among the bunch. I would like to suggest a rating system similar to other sites that allow other readers to rate comments which will allow other users to sort the comments...
  • Liberal reaction post-9/11

    I have a question. On a number of occasions, Rush and other conservatives have said that following 9/11, liberals were bemoaning the fact that it didn't happen on Clinton's watch because then his handling of it would be his legacy. It would be a chance for him to look good. I've done countless Google searches and can find nothing. Can anyone point me to specific examples? Thanks.
  • Is a "Shadow RNC" Evolving?

    Recently Newt Gingrich told an interviewer that there was a 4 to 1 chance that he would "not" run for President! ( link1 ) GOP Presidential candidates have been openly criticizing and snubbing the President. ( link2) Faced with a 40% drop in small donor contributions, the "old RNC" actually fired all of its phone solicitors ( link3 ) showing how absolutely divorced from reality they, the RNC, are. Putting all the blame on the poor phone solicitors and none on themselves! What a collection of losers. And over all GOP fundraising is down and sagging behind the dem's. (...
  • Talk Radio Jockeys Snared by a Cunning White House (Have at it)

    And how could they refuse? They all have a strong sense of duty and honor. They respect the Office of the President. So when the President calls, they must go. Even though they had to know they were being used. And, of course, the President and Karl Rove know what to expect from this noble group. And they must also have known that these individuals would be criticized for attending this session. But Rove and the President only care about their own political hides. They could care less who they damage in the process of covering their own back sides...
