    Sadly, I have decided to leave Free Republic. Too many here lack the intellect to articulate intelligent positions. Knuckle draggers like Humble Gunner seem more interested in fetching Jim Boy's water than participating in the forum in a positive way. Despite leaving the FR though, I may be back. There are a few intellectuals here who, like me have an actual brain. But for now it's bye bye Humble Gunner and Jim Boy. You are an embarrassment to the conservative movement and I can no longer be associated with you or this pathetic site.

    After more than four years as an intern-turned-employee at this great outlet, I am now writing to inform you that today is my final day at Townhall. As such, this will by my final post as a member of the Townhall editorial team. I am not leaving, however, because I have suddenly grown angry or cynical about politics as usual – although it is hard not to become cynical at times. It comes with the territory. On the contrary, I have relished and cherished my time here, and thus will deeply miss the people with whom I’ve worked for so...
  • 'Bloom County 2015': Berkeley Breathed Revives Comic Strip

    NPR ^ | 7/13/2015
    Fans of the well-loved comic strip Bloom County are celebrating this morning, after cartoonist Berkeley Breathed issued the first panels of his satirical strip in decades. Breathed won a Pulitzer Prize for his work on Bloom County back in 1987; two years later, he quit producing it. On Sunday, he posted a photo of himself to Facebook in which he sat in front of a computer screen with an empty cartoon template titled Bloom County 2015. "A return after 25 years. Feels like going home," he wrote. And on Monday, one of Breathed's central characters, Opus, awoke from his long...

    Please forgive the vanity... Over the years, I have really enjoyed participating in Free Republic discussions on a great variety of topics. Even when there was strong disagreement, Free Republic brought me a sense of connection with others that always seemed to have a purpose. Unfortunately, I now see clearly that it is over for the US. The constitution has no meaning and we are essentially under mob rule. There is no party to turn to and all the politicians are in collusion to game the system. I think we have reached a stage where this is all going to...

I am a young, married conservative woman who is trying to raise her daughter to be a fine, upstanding lady, an educated woman and a worthy wife to a decent man.

    NATIONAL HARBOR, Md. Charles Murray prevailed upon social conservatives within the Republican Party to de-emphasize their opposition to issues like abortion and same-sex marriage in an effort to attract younger voters. Murray, the controversial political scientist perhaps best known for his book The Bell Curve on IQ and class structure, said his experience has been that younger voters, like his four children, are reluctant to support GOP candidates even though they may agree with the party on a host of conservative issues.
