    I left college, having majored in English literature, with a dream to work in media. -snip- I also desperately needed to leave where I was living. I could get into the details of why, but to sum up: I wanted to die every single day of my life and it took me several years to realize it was because of the environment I was in. -snip- I like the weather up here. -snip- I put a bunch of debt on a shiny new credit card to afford the move. -snip- Will you pay my phone bill for me? I just...
  • Obama Honors Women in Weekly Address (Murkowski gives repsonse!)

    U.S. President Barack Obama has chosen Women's History Month to honor their achievements, and showcase legislation aimed at giving women equal pay. During his weekly address Saturday, Obama said a new White House report on the status of women shows their earnings still lag behind men. The president says the findings have inspired his resolve to get pay reforms legislation passed. Obama says in the current economy, fair pay is not just a women's issue, but a family issue. The president noted that women are more likely than men to attend and graduate from college, yet women are more likely...

    One look at you tells me all I need to know about you. I am so tired of liberals that think they are so brilliant. You are such a stupid jackass. You are so stupid you probably believe that the Bush administration orchestrated the attacks on 9/11. Every time you go on the internet, every time you make a bank transaction, or pay a bill, every time you try to email a congressman or senator they are getting so much information off of you. Of course it is all a conspiracy by the Bush administration. I have screwed around by...

    The purpose of's multiple message boards is to limit the topics for each board to particular topics. Posting the same message on all the boards defeats the purpose of multiple-boards for special topics. It is very annoying to see the same message on every bulletin board. PLEASE!

    Why can't employers just pay for your half-hour lunch? Don't you hate working 8-4:30 or 7:30-4 and crap? You get two 15-minute breaks anyway in this time period, what's the big deal? Wouldn't be easier if employers just paid you for lunch and a single 15 minute break? It would make the scheduling easier, no?

    Fellow Americans, there comes a time every mans life when we must give up ourselves before we are worthy to recieve. There comes a time in this war on terror when in order to protect liberty, we have to give it up in the mean time for safty. That's right folks. Today, Americans have forsaken the creator for the creation and have decided that they would value our "civil liberties" than protecting western civilization and rich white people from the tender mercies of radical Islamic terrorists. Selfish liberals insist and whine that Bush has no right to spy on Americans...

    Before David Letterman got to shave Ben Roethlisberger's beard Monday night, he got the Steelers' Super Bowl-winning quarterback to admit a little something that might rankle Seahawks fans even more. Roethlisberger told Letterman that he didn't think he scored on a controversial play in the second quarter that put the Steelers ahead for good 7-3. Roethlisberger dove toward the end zone but didn't appear to get the ball to touch the goal line. But officials on the field signaled touchdown. "I told Coach, 'I don't think I got in,'" Roethlisberger told Letterman. "But we were getting ready to go for...

    After reading all of the crap that people have been saying regarding Adult Private Social Clubs, I felt that I had to post an article and give my opinion. I am sick and tired of all the religous groups that are saying that there are drugs, prostitution, minors, non-consenting people, and just immoral people at these clubs! First of all, who do these people think they are to decide what is morally right or wrong for me? I believe that I have a good set of morals. I am a law abiding, tax paying citizen, I work full time and...

    The tone on FR is very demoralized. Liberals and their media unfortunately have succeeded in demoralizing a large number of freepers. From their constant savage attacks on the President and the Republican Party with lies and distortions, to their biased polls, to blaming the President for everything under the sun, many freepers are feeling very demoralized. They are further demoralized because President Bush is not fighting back, because the RINOS in Congress are screwing thing up for the President agenda. Add to that a huge numbers of trolls who infiltrated FR in 2004 and 2005 to divide and demoralize by...

    In Cal they are calliing it an utter disaster for Schwarzenegger! A career killer and it's being dubbed the "government employees victory". Seems New Jersey- Virgina, (a state that voted for Bush) and other areas the Democrats have stomped the Republicans. Just heard they are calling this a coast to coast KO. Many are saying they could have predicted this. I tend to agree. Is anyone really surprised?

    This is just my opinion. If a thread I post is pulled, I would appreciate an explanation, so I know what it is that required it to be pulled, as to not do it again. I'd rather play by the rules than waste my time. I posted an excerpt of an opinion piece by Peggy Noonan from WSJ "A Separate Peace - America is in trouble - and our elites are merely resigned. " which disapeared without explanation. I didn't think I violated the "terms of use" or "privacy policy" within WSJ. If I am incorrect, please let me know....

    American Spectator website ^ | October 3, 2005 | Jackson
    President Bush had a chance to change history for the better. Instead, he chose a poorly qualified political pal who contributed to Al Gore's 1988 campaign, spent money on Bentsen, and never served as a judge or legal scholar. Bush's presidential career will be summed up as: giving the store away in education to please Ten Kennedy; passing an ill-defined and unlimited-cost Medicare prescription benefit; shoring up the sagging career of Senator Specter; paving the path of Hurricane Katrina with gold -- our gold; and wrecking the U.S. Supreme Court just as effectively as daddy Bush. I trust we can...
  • Communism and human nature (Bolshie Mod sez, Arise ye kittens of the earth!)

    04/05/2005 10:50:57 AM PDT · by Sammy sam · 153 replies · 8,234+ views
    Many argue that communism will never be possible because of "human nature". The essence of this false argument is the belief that a communist society would consist of an all-powerful central government that would tell everybody what to do--and would therefore undermine the creative initiative of individuals and the search for happiness. • This argument is based on two false assumptions: (1) It assumes that a communist society will look like the former Soviet Union, or the current China, North Korea, etc (ie: corrupt police states with a feudal-style ruling class) (2) It assumes that people will only work in...

    What is the funniest or wierdest thing you ever saw or heard at work? For me it happened about 9 years ago. I worked construction in my 20's. I had several crafts, on this job I was employed as a pipefitter. I was stand next to my foreman when the General foreman come on the radio with a message to him. This was heard by all the foreman and others. This was a large job with maybe 50 with radios. (A bit of pertainent information, a section of pipe is callled a jiont of pipe.) He said, "Bob I just...

    There are so many things that make FR great. It's my favorite place on the Internet and I am proud to support it financially. However, there are a few things that have been getting under my skin too. Jokes about the "72 virgins" every time there is news of a Muslim terrorist being killed. Please. Over the last three years, every possible variation of the virgins joke has already been done. Hundreds of times. It is far, far beyond cliché by now. Jokes about spitting one's food or drink on the screen or keyboard, in response to someone else's humorous...

    FAREWELL to Swift boats and "Shove it!," to Osama's tape and Saddam's missing weapons, to "security moms" and outsourced dads. They've all been sent to history's dustbin faster than Ralph Nader memorabilia was dumped on eBay. In their stead stands a single ambiguous phrase coined by an anonymous exit pollster: "Moral values." By near universal agreement the morning after, these two words tell the entire story of the election: it's the culture, stupid. "It really is Michael Moore versus Mel Gibson," said Newt Gingrich. To Jon Stewart, Nov. 2 was the red states' revenge on "Will & Grace." William Safire,...

    So many changes. I am sure that they are great. But I can't navigate FR like I used to. I feel so helpless, like John Kerry in a real war zone. Things are indented, and it looks like something is reading my mind (or trying to). Am I alone? This is not a complaint, just a global obesrvation. [x] This is SOOO Not an Excerpt.
