    Our family is very proud and excited about our son's early decision acceptance to Hillsdale College to attend in the fall of next year. He's also earned a nice academic merit scholarship that we desperately need. We'll figure out how to pay for the rest of it. Couldn't be prouder or more hopeful about his future.

    Finally, after years of dreaming, we've finally moving from New Yorkistan to America (the outskirts of Atlanta, to be exactly)! I accepted the transfer offer today, for a position that I really wanted & I'm pretty sure I'm going to love. And to all the Georgia residents out there, I solemnly swear that we will not mess up your state. We're moving to Georgia because we like what it is, not because we want to change it. Having been raised in captivity, I'm thinking it may take us a while to adapt to the wild (AKA freedom). But I'm positive...

As we all know during the campaigns Obama and his Democrat allies kept referring to Gitmo as an international Blackeye and his desire to close it, but what sounds good off the teleprompter does not sound in reality as Obama and his allies now face a backlash from voters, who don't want these suspects in their backyard awaiting trials in civilian courts and exposing out dangerous suspects to their mindset.

Meanwhile, the new chief executive’s cabinet continued to take shape—Hillary Clinton overwhelmingly got the green light as the next Secretary of State, and Treasury Secretary hopeful Tim Geithner made it through his hearings with promises of confirmation. But not so fast, Eric Holder! The president’s choice for Attorney General will have to wait at least another week after Republicans on the Senate Judiciary Committee requested...

YAF, it seems, invited one Robert Spenser to address their National Conservative Student Conference. CAIR is none too pleased. Spenser, you see, maintains a website called JihadWatch, and is the author of several books that would not be considered to be very friendly toward Islamic fascism. We have such titles as "The Truth About Muhammad: Founder of the World's Most Intolerant Religion" and "The Politically Incorrect Guide to Islam."...

    As Israel pounded Hizbullah targets in southern Lebanon with bombs, artillery fire and advancing ground troops, some Lebanese at home and abroad were quietly applauding Israel's offensive. Most Lebanese oppose Israel's widespread bombardment of the country, and even those in the past who called for Hizbullah's disarmament have, in the face of Israel's military assault, lined up behind the Shi'ite militia. Yet a distinct minority of Lebanese are rooting for Israel to crush Hizbullah - silently if not explicitly.

    STANFORD, Calif. -- With conservative congressional majorities at risk in next November's elections, President Bush repeatedly should remind everyone that a key reason coalition troops invaded Iraq was to padlock Saddam Hussein's Wal-Mart for terrorists. The administration finally is releasing intelligence documents captured in Baghdad. Bush should use them to detail how Hussein indeed was entwined with terrorists in general and al Qaeda in particular. These papers appear on the Army Foreign Military Studies Office's Web site. (fmso.leavenworth.army.mil/products-docex.htm). The administration should promote a simple URL (e.g. iraqdocuments.gov) so readers easily can examine Hussein's terror ties. According to a March 23...

    Kristinn just called to say that he'll be on this afternoon to talk about the war, protesters, public opinion... I wasn't able to get much more information, because his phone is pretty busy right now. I think he said he'll be on during the 5:30 segment. For those of us who never watch Hardball, it starts at 5pm on the east coast.

    Kudos again to FR, Buckhead, Howlin, Texasforever, NYCVirago, and of course Jim for having this site to begin with. "Chapter 9 "We're Toast" pg 143 - 145 directly credits Freepers above with uncovering the "missing Documents" out of President Bush's National Guard Service that were distinctly unflattering to the President, and also flat forgeries. I am reading the book at the moment, and I wanted to pause and give credit where credit is due. I thank all those who helped bring to light these roaches that considered themselves so important as to try to influence a Presidential Election. I thank...

    Twenty-five years ago yesterday, Bob Nelson was a bright-eyed sophomore at Salem State College, anxiously broadcasting his first radio show. That was when the college station went back on the air after a five-month hiatus because a wind storm had knocked down the antenna. It had taken months to get the money to rebuild it. "I remember catching up on stuff we missed after five months off the air," Nelson recalled. "John Lennon and Yoko Ono had just released an album ('Double Fantasy') before he was killed and I remember we were playing those songs." That was March 12, 1981,...

    Great News! Freepers LS & Jeff Head have just released a book! It is LS (Larry Schweikart) first novel, a thriller about 9/11, "September Day", produced by fellow FReeper Jeff Head. Only available on Amazon/B&N. Hope you'll take a look: Check out Amazon site About September Day No living American can, or should, forget 9/11. But the process of trying to place this book with a major publisher has alerted me to the fact that many indeed want to do just that. Repeatedly, my agent got rejections with the words, "It's well written, but we don't want to touch...
