    A woman has saved tens of thousands of dollars after she vowed to buy nothing for a whole year. It may sound extreme, but caught up in a consumerist society, Michelle McGagh thought it would change her relationship with money forever. The personal financial journalist became a minimalist, and stopped cluttering her house with possessions and making unnecessary purchases. Now she is about $27,000 better off for it.
  • Bomber had half kilo of explosives inside his body

    JEDDAH – Suicide bomber Abdullah Asiri had inserted around half a kilogram of explosives into his own body to carry out his failed assassination attempt of Prince Muhammad Bin Naif, Assistant Minister of Interior for Security Affairs, last week. As more details emerged of the events surrounding the attack that took place at the Prince’s home in Obhur, sources told Okaz newspaper Friday that Asiri’s mobile telephone was equipped with two SIM cards, one of which was used to speak to call members of the terrorist organization in Yemen, and the other to detonate the device located inside Asiri’s rectum...

    First post ever. I would like to suggest that those who get so annoyed at repeat breaking news posts try to chill a bit and remember that there are four time zones in the U.S.. Also people in other countries check in for news. I am in Alaska and by 6:00 am my time it is already 10:00 on the East coast; so what some Freeper addicts may have seen before is new news to us in Alaska. So be kind and don't get so annoyed; there are way more important things to get wound up about.

    Obama Ayers Authorship Action Team [FROAAT] | 2008-11-04 | VANITY WORLD EXCLUSIVE
    A number of Freepers across the country have been working behind the scenes over the course of the last week in a furious race to try to provide evidence in support of Jack Cashill's thesis which holds that William Ayers was at least a co-author of Dreams from My Father, if not in fact the majority ghost writer of Dreams. Our original goal had been to scan several thousand pages of material into our database, but it turns out that the meticulous digitization of paper materials is an enormously time-consuming undertaking, especially when care must be taken to ensure that...

    Kerry Touts Bush Impeachment Memo Failed presidential candidate John Kerry said Thursday that he intends to confront Congress with a document touted by critics of President Bush as evidence that he committed impeachable crimes by falsifying evidence of weapons of mass destruction in Iraq. "When I go back (to Washington) on Monday, I am going to raise the issue," Kerry said, referring to the Downing Street Memo in an interview with Massachusetts' Standard Times newspaper. Story Continues Below "I think it's a stunning, unbelievably simple and understandable statement of the truth and a profoundly important document that raises stunning issues...

    The purpose of FreeRepublic.com'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!

    At about the time our original 13 states adopted their new constitution in 1787, Alexander Tyler, a Scottish history professor at the University of Edinborough, had this to say about the fall of the Athenian republic some 2,000 years prior: "A democracy is always temporary in nature; it simply cannot exist as a permanent form of government. A democracy will continue to exist up until the time that voters discover that they can vote themselves generous gifts from the public treasury. From that moment on, the majority always votes for the candidates who promise the most benefits from the public...

    SANDWICH, England -- Mark Roe blew kisses to the crowd and walked off the 18th hole triumphantly Saturday afternoon at Royal St. George’s. The Englishman had just shot 4-under 67 and had moved to 1-over par, and into contention in the 132nd Open Championship. Fifteen minutes later, he got some of the worst news of his professional life. Mark Roe was informed, after doing a television interview, that he and playing competitor Jesper Parnevik (81) had been disqualified after signing incorrect scorecards. In this event, players are given their own scorecard before the round and are expected to exchange...

    Internet Movie Database ^ | January 23, 2003
    Movie veteran Charlton Heston has fired back at George Clooney after the hunk mocked his Alzheimer's condition on TV in America on Monday night. A ranting Clooney appeared on The Charlie Rose Show to attack both President George W. Bush's war policies and National Rifle Association president Heston's pro-gun stance. But an ill-judged joke about Heston's illness has left the Ben-Hur star firing back - using Clooney's dead aunt Rosemary Clooney. Clooney quipped, "Charlton Heston announced again today that he is suffering from Alzheimer's." And Heston hit back, "It just goes to show that sometimes class does skip a generation."...

    kevinm-4 Joplin, Missouri Date: 23 December 2002 Summary: Not like the book... I am a "Tolkien geek" who thinks Tolkien would hate Peter Jackson and his films were he alive today and watching them. I live and breathe Middle Earth and I cannot even begin to fathom the injustice that Jackson has done with his movies. For example, in the 89th minute of the film, Aragorn lifts his left arm and points off into the distance. When I saw this I thrashed about in my seat because EVERYBODY knows that in the book, Aragorn raises his "right" arm and points....

    Johannesburg (CNSNews.com) - In what some see as a sign that the Earth summit is literally going down the drain, an environmentalist at the Earth summit here has lamented the introduction of the flush toilet. One of the panelists taking part in a television special on the Earth summit complained about the "pernicious introduction of the flush toilet," according to Competitive Entreprise Institute President Fred Smith, who also was a panelist on the program. The TV special, hosted by hosted PBS's Bill Moyers, was taped on Tuesday and is set to air Friday night. A female panelist from India complained...
