    Hi Freepers. Is there a way to "not see" posts that I'm not interested in. Such as "Pope" or "Cologne Sex". Half of the posts I'm not interested in and would like to disregard with a keyword. Just a thought like a news clipper. Thanks for your response. Swen
  • White House scrambles to contain Benghazi-gate fallout

    05/10/2013 7:57:41 PM PDT · by topher · 100 replies ^ | 5-10-2013 |
    The White House scrambled Friday to explain newly released email excerpts that show a top State Department official pushing to water down the intelligence community's initial story-line on the Benghazi attack, as Republicans sharply challenged the administration's honesty. With new details emerging in the Benghazi-gate controversy, the White House held a background discussion with more than a dozen news organizations. Afterward, Press Secretary Jay Carney weathered a barrage of questions from the media during an at-times awkward White House briefing -- where he tried to defend the truthfulness of his and other officials' prior claims that the initial talking points...

  • Nevada Early Voting is Starting and Day One Results Are Out

    10/21/2012 5:22:02 AM PDT · by Perdogg · 18 replies
    Early voting is a new phenomenon that is has great implications on the final election outcome. Despite this, I don’t much enjoy blogging it. The numbers get updated sporadically, there is an inherent uncertainty in what the requests or submissions actually mean and the sample sizes are really small. This makes drawing conclusions not much better than just plain old guess work until a critical mass of votes have accumulated. And by that time someone else has already done a better job analyzing the data than I could so I just leave it to them. One of the only reasons...

    BOSTON – In an epic upset in liberal Massachusetts, Republican Scott Brown rode a wave of voter anger to defeat Democrat Martha Coakley in a U.S. Senate election Tuesday that left President Barack Obama's health care overhaul in doubt and marred the end of his first year in office. The loss by the once-favored Coakley for the seat that the late Sen. Edward M. Kennedy held for nearly half a century signaled big political problems for the president's party this fall when House, Senate and gubernatorial candidates are on the ballot nationwide.

    As rivals who consider Mike Huckabee soft on immigration ramp up their attacks, the former Arkansas governor acknowledged Thursday that his position on the issue may cost him votes. Huckabee for weeks now has been criticized for his 2005 support of state-sponsored scholarships for illegal immigrants. Legislation to provide the tuition aid failed in the Arkansas Senate. Huckabee admitted his stance is unpopular among a GOP voter base that has made immigration the No. 1 issue of the campaign. "If it costs me the election, it costs me the election," he told reporters at a luncheon on Capitol Hill. But...

    From Leshan about "Teleportation Physics Study": I expected another final words in "Teleportation Physics Study: "Since I am totally unable to evaluate this concept in the absence of a rigorous theoretical framework, I recommend further theoretical research of hole teleportation theory". Since Leshan do not have any conditions for scientific work, I’ll invite him to our university/centre for further research of hole theory. Why America can spent millions of dollars for flays to Moon and cannot give at least an invitation for an author of material teleportation theory? Teleportation is a sole method for exploration of deep space.

Whittington, the United States vice-president, and a third person went quail shooting on Saturday at one of the grandest ranches in Texas. While Cheney and the third man laid in wait for the quail, Whittington approached them from behind without signalling his presence. Just then the quail were flushed out.

    Bush’s giant Right Wing Noise Machine (RWNM) loves to preach about the Bush economic miracle. In fact, the RWNM’s current thinking is Bush doesn’t spend enough time talking about his economic triumphs. If only he did, then everyone would fall in line and believe in the great Bush economic miracle. There is one problem with this argument: it’s a lie. Any way you look at the Bush economy, it comes up short. Today, I want to compare Bush’s job creation record with other economic recoveries. As usual, Bush comes up way short.
