    If a small town has a need for a fire department, why is it more often than not a volunteer fire department ?Should't the same taxes that paid fire departments operate from serve the smaller community ?
  • IS IT ILLEGAL TO BE PARANOID?

    Higher-ups at the FBI were all involved in coup attempt. It will be proven over a long(expensive) period of time. My guess is they will get away with it like BJ's law license being revoked. Still they REALLY believed the national security of this country was at stake. They could have at least informed POTUS what was going on but if they really believed Trump was the Manchurian candidate they would feel justified. End justifies the means. It's like Hillary's intent. Something tells me their paranoia will be considered.

    Ok this may be a bit sensational, but it is interesting. -- A small team of Israeli scientists think they might have found the first complete cure for cancer. “We believe we will offer in a year’s time a complete cure for cancer,” said Dan Aridor, of a new treatment being developed by his company, Accelerated Evolution Biotechnologies Ltd. (AEBi), which was founded in 2000 in the ITEK incubator in the Weizmann Science Park. AEBi developed the SoAP platform, which provides functional leads to very difficult targets.

    IN CASE YOU DIDN'T ALREADY KNOW THIS LITTLE TIDBIT OF WONDERFUL TRIVIA............... ON JULY 20, 1969, AS COMMANDER OF THE APOLLO 11 LUNAR MODULE, NEIL ARMSTRONG WAS THE FIRST PERSON TO SET FOOT ON THE MOON. HIS FIRST WORDS AFTER STEPPING ON THE MOON, "THAT'S ONE SMALL STEP FOR MAN, ONE GIANT LEAP FOR MANKIND," WERE TELEVISED TO EARTH AND HEARD BY MILLIONS. BUT, JUST BEFORE HE RE-ENTERED THE LANDER, HE MADE THE ENIGMATIC REMARK "GOOD LUCK, MR. GORSKY." MANY PEOPLE AT NASA THOUGHT IT WAS A CASUAL REMARK CONCERNING SOME RIVAL SOVIET COSMONAUT. HOWEVER, UPON CHECKING, THERE WAS NO...

    The Atlantic ^ | 10-22-18 | OLGA KHAZAN
    Over at the Institute for Family Studies, Nicholas Wolfinger, a sociologist at the University of Utah, has found that Americans who have only ever slept with their spouses are most likely to report being in a “very happy” marriage. Meanwhile, the lowest odds of marital happiness—about 13 percentage points lower than the one-partner women—belong to women who have had six to 10 sexual partners in their lives. For men, there’s still a dip in marital satisfaction after one partner, but it’s never as low as it gets for women,... (Skip) In an earlier analysis, Wolfinger found that women with zero...

    Christian Post ^ | 08/18/2018 | Stoyan Zaimov
    Batman, one of DC Comics' most recognizable fictional heroes, no longer believes in God in the latest comic book issue. ScreenRant shared the storyline details for Batman #53, released on Wednesday, which comes at the conclusion of comic writer Tom King's post-Catwoman/Batman wedding arc. In the story, Catwoman leaves Batman, whose secret identity is billionaire Bruce Wayne, at the altar. This leaves Wayne in a questioning state, where he explores his life and reflects on his theological background — he had been raised as a Christian by his father, Thomas. In one exchange with another character, Wayne is asked, "Do...

    Not strictly limited to politics, Snopes.com is a website that supposedly attempts to debunk and invalidate urban legends, Internet rumors and other stories of uncertain origin. Today, they are the voice of the statist globalist oligarchy. Of course, others mostly rich country-club Democrats, think otherwise. They point out the mission statement at the website. It is officially an “independent entity” privately owned by its operators. Not for profit? The owners, Barbara and David Mikkelson, have both publicly stated that they receive no funding in any form. Curious. Most curious. This is really, really interesting. You know, it sure is curious...

    The media and other Trump haters can't seem to let themselves admit it, but President Donald Trump scored a big victory for the American economy on trade last week. Trump and the European Union reached a handshake deal that is designed to lower tariffs on both sides of the Atlantic. They agreed to shoot for zero tariffs. Sounds like freer and fairer trade to me. The exact details are still a bit murky, but what we do know is that the EU has pledged to lower its tariffs and other trade barriers on American soybeans, oil and gas, pharmaceutical...
  • Did Facebook Break The Law To Help Obama Win In 2012?

    IBD ^ | 03/28/2018
    Facebook now faces myriad legal actions for its apparent misuse of private data on its members. But one possible legal problem that isn't getting any attention involves whether Facebook (FB) made, and the Obama campaign accepted, illegal "in-kind" contributions to Obama's 2012 re-election effort. As we noted earlier, the Obama campaign's use of Facebook data dwarfed anything Trump did. Cambridge Analytica purchased data from an academic, who gathered it in 2014 through an app that said the data would only be used for academic purposes. There's no question that was misleading. But by the time the general election rolled around,...

    Tomorrow is Election Day in Texas. Voters will flock to vote in their respective primaries and for one race, it’s become deeply personal. In Texas’ 99 House District race, Bo French is running against incumbent Republican Charlie Geren R-Fort Worth. It’s a rematch from the pair’s 2016 bout; French is considered someone who could knock off Geren in a primary. Geren prevailed but by less than 4,000 votes. According to reports, the two men were friends until French was accused on what appears to be bogus child abuse allegations. The couple recently filed a lawsuit against the political operative for...

    Have Republicans lost their hold on Morris County? Editor's Desk By Tom Bergeron Morris County | Nov 30, 2017 at 12:01 pm Tom Bergeron/ROI-NJ The sign commemorating Gov. Chris Christie Drive in Morris Plains. OK, let’s get the joke out of the way. Gov. Chris Christie, whose national political ambitions were sidetracked by his connection to a traffic jam, had a short access road named after him last week. The catch: This short road, no more than a half-mile long, is being built to alleviate traffic problems around a park in his home county of Morris. Now, let’s get to...

    In 1946, Billy Graham had a friendly rival for the title of the most up and coming evangelist in the world. The friendly rival was, in fact, Billy Graham’s best friend Charles Templeton.Charles Templeton was from Canada and was co-founder of the organization Youth for Christ, which hired Billy Graham as its first full time evangelist.  Templeton and Graham led rallies together in America and in Europe.  Many thought that Templeton was the more talented preacher of the two.  However, what followed was a truly sad story.By the late 1940’s Templeton began to doubt the Genesis account of creation.  Further,...

    Loose dentures? More like loose screws. Donald Trump was slurring his words pretty good last week for a guy who fancied himself an expert when it came to Hillary Clinton's alleged brain damage. What would he make of his own slurred speech and bizarre behavior? Brain damage from inhaling too much hairspray? A brain tumor from the weight of that massive combover sitting on top of his head like a live farm animal? Simply slurred speech because his thoughts are so fantastic that his mouth can't keep up? Maybe it's a pesky case of dysphasia, the condition Trump's used-to-be-spokesperson Katrina...

If men in the Western world cannot stand up for themselves, then...

    The allocation of culpability for the violence that resulted in the tragic death of Heather Heyer at a protest/counter-protest rally in Charlottesville, VA by the media last week really should not have come as a surprise. In the case of Republicans, the news-cycle will consisted of the following phases: If the violence is perpetrated by a hate group(s) whose members are racists, anti-Semites, and white supremacists, first, implicitly tie the Republican Party and its leaders (or if it is President Trump, explicitly) to the offending hate group; secondly, insist he or she publicly renounce the group; third, if the Republican...

    Sen. Rand Paul, the former Republican presidential candidate and vocal champion of civil liberties, has received allegations that the Obama administration sought intercepted intelligence from the National Security Agency on him and other members of Congress and has asked President Donald Trump to conduct a formal investigation, Circa has learned. Paul quietly asked for the probe nearly a month ago in a letter to Trump that was obtained by Circa. "An anonymous source recently alleged to me that my name, as well as the names of other Members of Congress, were unmasked, queried or both, in intelligence reports of intercepts...

    On Monday morning, President Trump tweeted, implying Sally Yates could have leaked classified information to the press, just hours leading up to the former Attorney General’s hearing before the Senate. Trump said, in what appears to be a statement directed at the Senate, that Yates should be asked “if she knows how classified information got into the newspapers soon after she explained it to the White House council.”

    ...The latest statistics this week from Pennsylvania’s elections bureau show more than 214,000 registered voters have switched this year. That amounts to 3 percent of the state’s 8.2 million registered voters. Carbon County is among the state’s hot spots. This is the first year voter registration in the state can be done online, making it easier than getting the paperwork, filling it out and submitting it. Many of those switching parties reported wanting to vote in Pennsylvania’s April 26 primary, and the switching accelerated in the weeks before Monday’s deadline for Pennsylvanians to register to vote in the election or...
