  • Startegy Ad Idea Aimed at Obama and Statists of All Stripes

    07/24/2015 3:59:17 PM PDT · by Secret Agent Man · 25 replies
    My idea is to take Obama's idiotic "You didn't build that" and slam it back in their faces. Have ads focusing on a specific business owner, showing their actual business growth/extension plans and ideas. Explaining the bottom line in more employees they will need, expected growth of their business, etc. Then end with the person saying some kind of statement: We had all this planned and ready to go, but Mr. President, we didn't build it, because of you and how your policies have negatively affected our business. A whole damn series of ads like this could be created, the...

    How Free Are You I have always enjoyed the many quotes Peter McWilliams included in “Ain’t Nobody’s Business if You Do” The book examines the folly of consensual crimes. I was researching a particular quote regarding freedom the other day when I heard of the NAACP insistence that the Federal government penalize the state of Missouri because of the actions of a rodeo clown. The quote I researched was : The real freedom of any individual can always be measured by the amount of responsibility which he must assume for his own welfare and security.

    Mods, please don't move this. It's an important exercise for those who see it and I'd like as many people to see as possible. It may be helpful to their emotions, psyche, spirit and how they see themselves. Thank you in advance. Women are their own worst beauty critics. Only 4% of women around the world consider themselves beautiful. At Dove, we are committed to creating a world where beauty is a source of confidence, not anxiety. So, we decided to conduct a compelling social experiment that explores how women view their own beauty in contrast to what others see....

    Reuters ^ | 3/13/13 | Emily Flitter and Stella Dawson and Mark Hosenball
    (Reuters) - The Obama administration is drawing up plans to give all U.S. spy agencies full access to a massive database that contains financial data on American citizens and others who bank in the country, according to a Treasury Department document seen by Reuters. The proposed plan represents a major step by U.S. intelligence agencies to spot and track down terrorist networks and crime syndicates by bringing together financial databanks, criminal records and military intelligence. The plan, which legal experts say is permissible under U.S. law, is nonetheless likely to trigger intense criticism from privacy advocates. Financial institutions that operate...

    [According to] a Japanese government study: Almost a third of Japanese boys aged 16-20 and three-fifths of girls say that they have no interest in sex. The hormones of late adolescence evidently rage in vain against some cultural barrier that makes young Japanese "despise" sexual relations, according to the Japan Family Planning Association's report [1]. It turns out that the ultimate victim of sexual revolution is sex itself. What makes the Japanese hate sex? The same things that make a growing proportion of Americans hate sex.

This stark but unsurprising revelation came in an undercover investigative video by conservative activist James O’Keefe targeting NPR senior executive Ron Schiller. Mr. Schiller thought he was chatting up Muslim activists promising a $5 million donation to the embattled publicly funded network, and he sought to appeal to them by disparaging people who disagree with his liberal worldview. “The current Republican Party, particularly the Tea Party, is fanatically involved with people’s personal lives,” he said.

  • The Atheist's Constant War Against Almighty God

    09/21/2010 6:43:38 AM PDT · by kindred · 11 replies
    The atheist is always... at constant war with Almighty God in his heart (Isa. 57:20-21, Acts 9:1-5, Romans 5:10, Gal 5:7, Eph 2:1-3, Rev. 17:12,14, 19:19). If Almighty God truly does not exist, then why do these possess such a passionate hatred for Him? It is NOT that they try to seek to dismiss the ABSOLUTE REALITY of Almighty God in their minds and hearts, but rather that they are in ABSOLUTE FULL REJECTION of Him (Psalm 14: 1-3, Luke 19:14, Romans 1:18-32). It is becoming more evident to many in the creation movement of today that the evolutionary fundamentalist...

Up until now, Hariri and his March 14 allies (the date of the 2005 Cedar Revolution) had resisted Suleiman's candidacy; Lebanese democrats are generally loath to have military men serve as President of the Republic, especially after the last nine years of former commander Emile Lahoud's presidency. But more importantly, Suleiman is Damascus's number one choice to fill the now vacant spot. So why have Hariri and his colleagues, including Druze chieftain Walid Jumblatt and leader...

    All you need is ubuntu You and me, me and you, lots and lots, for us to do By Sean Coughlan BBC News Magazine Bill Clinton told the Labour conference to get into ubuntu. Eh? Ubuntu. That was what Bill Clinton told the Labour party conference it needed to remember this week. "Society is important because of Ubuntu." But what is it? Left-leaning sudoku? U2's latest album? Fish-friendly sushi? No, it's a word describing an African worldview, which translates as "I am because you are," and which means that individuals need other people to be fulfilled. The former president, husky-voiced...

    Drug can help cut diabetes risk, say researchers By Nic Fleming, Medical Correspondent (Filed: 16/09/2006) A drug that improves the body's ability to turn sugars into fuel can substantially reduce the chances of people at risk of Type 2 diabetes developing the disease, according to research published yesterday. In a large international trial volunteers with "pre-diabetes" taking rosiglitazone, sold under the brand name Avandia, were 60 per cent less likely than those on placebos to develop the full disease. The drug, already prescribed to those with Type 2 diabetes, was also found to help patients return to normal blood sugar...

    War to Mobilize Democracy ^ | 9/12/06 | Andrew L. Jaffee
    Despite attempts by Democrats to stifle free and open discourse, "The Path To 9/11" aired last night, and again last night. Instead of succumbing to threats from Democratic senators and President Clinton, ABC allowed Americans to make up their own minds about 9/11. Some Democrats feel that the mini-series unfairly blamed the Clinton administration for allowing Osama bin Laden and al-Qaeda to fester unchecked. But the shrill tone of Democratic objections to the docudrama belies Freudian under-currents of very real fear that Americans might know the truth: The Clinton administration was too distracted to take action against al-Qaeda -- too...

    September 7, 2006 -- AN infuriated Warren Buffett has renounced one of his granddaughters - telling her she is no longer his relative "legally or emotionally" because she took part in a documentary about the lives of the very rich. Nicole Buffett, the adopted daughter of Buffett's son Peter and biological daughter of Peter's ex-wife Mary, was featured in Jamie Johnson and Nick Kurzon's documentary, "The One Percent," which debuted at the Tribeca Film Festival this year and is a follow-up to Johnson's "Born Rich." Enraged that Nicole not only participated in the documentary, but also plugged it on National...

    Fruity hitchhikers leave you heaving 14 August 2006 Beware the mild-mannered melon. Researchers at the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) have found that since 1973 the cantaloupe melon has been responsible for at least 28 outbreaks of food poisoning in the US and Canada that have left more than 1600 people ill and at least two dead. Of these outbreaks, 68 per cent occurred during the last decade, with Salmonella being the predominant culprit (Epidemiology and Infection, DOI: 10.1017/SO950268805005480). The actual number of cases could be far higher, since one-offs often go unreported, say the researchers. "Fruit...
