    I was sitting at home tonight when the door bell rang. I answered and Young dude introduces himself as representing the food and water organization. His claim? He claims that they are pressuring lawmakers to invest in infrastructure to replace lead pipes in urban areas. He wanted me to sign a petition and donate. I examined the petition and losing led up the website to find this: http://www.foodandwaterwatch.org I kicked his false pretense liberal ass off of my porch. I think this organization could use a freeping.

    Well. It has been 16 years more or less that I have been on FR. My participation began with the contested Bush-Gore election in late 2000. I've seen a lot of debate, a lot of discussion, and a wide palette of points of view from left to right and on many spiritual subjects. I believe the present season, with not just Trump but a new salvational consciousness on the horizon, is an answer from God to the confusion. Anyhow, as the "age of Trump" comes upon us, are there wiser ways to use FR than to chew the fat on...

Vermont's very own Senator and outspoken socialist just Tweeted, then deleted, this: That's right. Bernie Sanders actually believes that U.S. treats poor and working-class citizens worse than any other country on earth. Does he really think that's because the American voters just won't†buy into socialism? Last I checked, in socialist Nicolas Maduro's Venezuela, it costs $150 to buy a carton of eggs.

Drivers started paying those higher taxes this month, though they were enacted near the end of 2015. But at least in the short term, the main effect of these tax increases appears to be higher spending on schools and Medicaid, not road repairs. The 7.3-cent-per-gallon tax increase motorists began paying on Jan. 1 and the 20 percent increase in the vehicle registration tax are expected to cost road users an additional $460 million...

As Washington faces a looming change of power in two days, President Obama has yet to address staggering Democrat losses that extend far beyond the election of Donald J. Trump.

    The DUmmies are now in a state of complete grief over the impending inauguration of Donald Trump on Friday. Of course, their gloomy extreme depression is going to make watching his inauguration even MORE enjoyable than it normally would be. As you can see in the picture above of the OUTGOING gloomy White House staff, DUmmies and their leftwing cohorts cannot hide their extreme sorrow. You can see just how depressed the DUmmies are just by the very title of their thread, "Is everybody here in as shitty a mood this week as I am?" Yeah, everybody in DUmmieland...

    Lindsey Graham, one of the Senate GOP's leading proponents of a select committee to investigate Russian meddling in the election, won't be taking over a new cybersecurity panel to investigate the issue. Sen. John McCain, chairman of the Senate Armed Services Committee, confirmed on Tuesday that Graham ó his good friend ó would not be heading the new subcommittee devoted entirely to cyber issues, contrary to earlier statements McCain had made.

  • Obamaís Iranian Nuke Deal is a Major Challenge for Trump

    What, exactly, would violate this unsigned, unenforceable agreement? No matter how false and misleading it is to cite the Iran deal as ďsigned,Ē when it is little more than a set of unenforceable political commitments, the news media continue to publish fake news arguing that somehow Iran and the P5+1 have agreed on a single text of the deal. In reality, the Iranian parliament endorsed a different version of the deal than was supposedly accepted by the P5+1, and the JCPOA was agreed upon without signatures or signatories.

    It's also a sure thing that none of patriots who elected Donald Trump want to have the Left as a backseat driver Imposition of unpopular laws, unprecedented coercion, financial hocus-pocus and so un-American Taqiya, led Obamaís team through hubris to the defeat in elections. The soon to be ex-administration came up with coping mechanisms such as delusional denial and post-truth techniques which are supposed to give the reality secondary importance and convince the public that the leftists still rule and are here to ďsuperviseĒ the new government. Well, it looks like the Left lost it in more ways than one,...

    Tech Mahindra will continue to invest in hiring more and more local people in the US as part of its efforts to augment competitiveness across locations, CEO CP Gurnani told a TV news channel on Wednesday. ďTech Mahindra is very conscious that not only the US, but the world is about localisation now,Ē Gurnani said in an interview to ET Now on the sidelines of the ongoing World Economic Forum in Davos. ďLocal skills have to be upgraded so that the products continue to be getting delivered,Ē he said.

    The Security Council looks decidedly stupid and increasingly irrelevant Twelve of the fifteen members of the United Nations Security Council have apparently had a major rethink on the terms of Resolution 2334 which they approved 14-0 on 23 December 2016 with only America abstaining. They were among those who issued the Joint Declaration following the Paris Conference held on 15 Januaryóattended by delegations from 70 countries, the United Nations, the European Commission, the European Union, the Arab League and the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation.

    WILLIAMSTON, MICH. - A Williamston teacherís decision not to show President-elect Donald Trumpís inauguration speech to his students prompted strong reactions on social media after a letter to parents was shared by Williamston graduate and current syndicated radio host Steve Gruber. On his website, Gruber, who also has two children in the school district, posted an email sent to parents Monday by Brett Meteyer, a fourth-grade teacher at Williamstonís Explorer Elementary School. Gruber said he received a copy of the email from another parent in the district. In the email, Meteyer explained that the President-elect's comments during the election about...

    The Eastern Establishment fears and loathes Outsiders, and seeks to destroy them, usually via the mainstream media. Political agnostics who are skeptical about Big Government "solutions," left or right, view the current hullabaloo about the Trump presidency with some detachment. What's remarkable to us is the extremism, not just of those bitter about Clinton's loss, but by insiders who are threatened by the possibility Trump may upset their insider skims and scams. As an opening observation, I don't recall bitter Nixon supporters issuing death threats to performers at John Kennedy's inauguration in 1961--and the 1960 election was extremely close. I...
