    Ten years ago this week the Apple iPhone, described by Steve Jobs as a “revolutionary product” that “changes everything,” went on sale for the first time. A million flew off the shelves in just ten weeks and a decade later—with more than a billion sold worldwide—the iPhone has transformed the way we live, work and do business. But even as the fanboys and girls were camping out to be at the front of the line, harsh critics queued. Columbia law professor Tim Wu denounced the iPhone as “anticompetitive.” Nested exclusively with AT&T and lurking in a “walled garden,” the iPhone...
  • Surprisingly, Republicans and Conservatives Shouldn’t Fear a National Popular Vote

    Republicans are hesitant to switch from our winner-take-all state laws allocating electors to the electoral college to using the National Popular Vote. The National Popular Vote Plan would award all of a state’s electors to the candidate who wins the most popular votes in all fifty states. There is a fear that such a move will benefit Democrats, since Democrats won the popular vote even though they lost the elections in 2000 and 2016. But the truth is, Republicans are likely going to lose their ability to win the necessary swing state of Florida in the future, and they can...
  • Love and Defend America: Reflections from Rebeccah Heinrich

    "Christianity has a long legacy of great minds who toiled to understand the Holy Scriptures and Christian orthodoxy and applied them in ways to navigate matters of politics and international relations. However, today there is great confusion, partly due to the lack of proper catechesis, which works as a bulwark against bad doctrine and progressivism in general." "Now this independent, spirited president and his administration have come at a time when these concepts are being rediscovered and debated. What is America? How do we preserve her culturally? How do we rediscover, appreciate, and protect her?" "No doubt you’ve also seen,...
  • Peter Jenkins Set Out to Walk Across America and Ended Up Finding Himself a New

    Peter Jenkins was of the Watergate generation, a cynic who picked up his college diploma and a 75-pound backpack and set off, as he puts it, “to give this country one last chance.” Now more than five years and 4,750 miles later, he is a believer. “I have America in every cell of my body,” he exults, “and I could feel God everywhere.”.. By the time Jenkins reached the Mississippi he was no longer a vegetarian. A poor mountain man in Virginia, who offered Jenkins a lamb chop, had made him feel foolish about his no-meat diet. Once a “hyper...

    The NFL, for its part, was not all that eager to continue the back-and-forth with Trump. “He’s exercising his freedom to speak,” league spokesman Joe Lockhart said on a conference call with reporters, “and I’m exercising my freedom not to react.”
  • Will the Dallas Cowboys all Stand for the Flag?

    09/25/2017 2:21:45 PM PDT · by GOP Congress · 84 replies
    I am going to a local sports bar with my 82nd Airborne Division vet hat, and a tshirt that says "Stand and Deliver" with a picture of Dallas Cowboys standing in front of a background of the flag. At this time I'm not watching any other NFL game. HERE IS MY DECREE: If all the Cowboys remain standing, I will remain a fan and watch their games. If any Cowboy refuses to honor the flag, I will forever stay away from the Dallas Cowboys, and hence the rest of the NFL, UNLESS Jerry Jones fires him on the spot. But...

    “How many flood victims in South Texas have been rescued by the antifa navy? Just asking, because on TV this week I’ve been watching the “Cajun Navy” pull one Dunkirk after another all around the Gulf Coast. And those good old boys look like they just came off the set of “Duck Dynasty.” They could be wearing MAGA hats. Hell, I’ll bet one or two of them may have even been falsely accused of committing a fake hate crime or two since the election by some unhinged Social Justice Warrior. They are, to coin a phrase, deplorables. Hell, a Chick-fil-A...

    OK Freepers, what is the best charity to give to support Harvey? The Red Cross? I have been hearing them panned since Vietnam. What about the Salvation Army? Hey, the Clinton Foundation did great work in Haiti, just ask Hillary. What are your suggestions?

    Even our U.S. presidents like to have an adult beverage every once in a while. In Mark Will-Weber’s book, “Mint Juleps with Teddy Roosevelt: The Complete History of Presidential Drinking,“ he details every president’s favorite alcoholic beverage and explores the stories behind the drink. Will-Weber’s book also reveals the more “human side” of our nation’s leaders, which is important for us all to see from time to time.
