    ou might remember that in July of 2011, when fighting over the debt ceiling, president Obama- right before he left for his 17th vacation at Martha’s Vineyard that year- complained about congressional inaction by saying that’s it time for the country “to eat its peas.” From CBSNews:"I've been hearing from my Republican friends for some time it is a moral imperative to tackle our debt and deficits in a serious way," Mr. Obama said. "What I've said to them is, let's go."The president said today he would not accept a smaller, short-term deal. "We might as well do it now," he said....

    They are really getting old, ceased being funny hours ago, and don't reflect well on the quality of this site, especially for visitors who might be checking out FreeRepublic for the first time. I mean really. They are starting to get embarrassing. What are we, DemocraticUnderground?

    I have been a reader of the Free Republic for a long time, also I have never been a support of Obama, but I cannot belive all of the tripe that has appeared on this board today. Everything from Obama going to heaven to Obama spreading the waters of the Red Sea. I can remember when the Free Republic was a repository for breaking news, that was news. Not some board that makes fun of the President of the United States. I wonder what has happened to all of the real Freepers who met conversed and enjoyed the Free Republic...

    Holloween is abomination to God almighty! A celebration of the occult and the worship of Satan! It is from Holloween that we get all of societies ills such as drug abuse, incest, abortion, homosexuality and the bird flu epidemic. What is Holloween? Holloween is an evil holiday that commemorates the birthday of Satan the god of this world. It's just like Christmas but instead of getting presents from a tree and singing carols, satanists sacrifice babies and molest little boys. They also drink blood and eat live animals! It originated in an evil country called Ireland. In the nineteenth century,...

    Put it here and keep it out of the threads.I don't think anyone finds it funny anymore. Someone please, add Bush's Fault to Lake Superior State University list of blacklisted words. Face the music. It's time you bite the bullet and go back to the drawing board to find something more cutting edge. No pennies for your thoughts, just better late than never because your beating a dead horse beyond the shadow of a doubt.

    I enjoy this forum, but lately I've noticed a troubling tendency for posters here to descend into horrible and immature name-calling. Such name-calling, and extremism without reason does nothing but harm our cause. It turns off casual lurkers and readers of this forum. It provides fodder for this forum to be demonized and non-respected elsewhere. Below I provide a few examples. I call on Freepers to stop using such terms voluntarily. If that doesn't work, I call on the moderators to warn, if not censor, posters who use such terms. I realize that Democratic Underground uses even more ridiculous terms...
  • Will Schwarzenegger terminate the GOP?

    Will Schwarzenegger terminate the GOP? Posted: September 9, 2003 1:00 a.m. Eastern © 2003 WorldNetDaily.com The candidacy of Arnold Schwarzenegger to become the next governor of California appears to be heading toward victory. But Republican elephants would be wise to consider that if they allow this RINO (Republican In Name Only) to win, he may also be responsible for permanently terminating their precious GOP. What has apparently evaded the thinking of conservative pundits all over America is the long-term impact of Schwarzenegger on the Republican Party's national platform. In particular, there has been an ongoing battle for many years inside...
  • THE LESSONS OF TRENT LOTT, PARTY POOPER

    Even if he lied about his reason for not running for president in '04 ("it's for the good of the country" rather than "no Democrat breathing wanted me to"), Al Gore at least knew when to step aside. Not so with Trent Lott, who continues to confirm his own tin-ear approach to politics, by not relinquishing his Senate Majority Leader's perch after a disastrous week. Lott's days are surely numbered, but will the GOP learn the lessons he leaves in his wake? When Republicans were celebrating the day after their mid-term election stunner, I urged Republicans to replace Trent Lott...

    Drunken man scandalizes womenMany women left the party when an old man, a father-in-law to one of them, inadvertently exposed his private parts during a dance. Justus Mwero was tuned to Konjo dance at Kasese’s noisy pub on Main Street on Saturday. He stood up to dance and did not realise that his zipper was open and his wrinkled private parts were moving with the pace of the Awilo number. He continued unconcerned even when he was tipped off by a young man. He was too drunk to care or understand. The female guests were scandalised and sneakedaway one by...

    <p>Democratic gubernatorial candidate Robert Reich, who earned more than $800,000 from speeches to corporations and other groups last year, has defended his out-of-state speaking engagements. Even after his scheduled speeches began colliding with gubernatorial debates, Reich insisted on keeping his commitments to make the paid appearances, with his spokeswoman saying: ''He believes in keeping his promises.''</p>
