  • Let's Regulate Sports

    I understand the Government is concerned about injuries in professional football. They are considering regulation to make the contact sport less injurious. While they are at it they should make it illegal to actually strike someone while boxing. Tennis is also a dangerous sport because ankle injuries are prevalent. And ping pong! Carpal tunnel syndrome is the bane of ping pong players! Think of all the knee injuries in Basketball. The Government is so wonderful at regulation. Think of all the great things they have done for us using their constitutional power to regulate. I forget, someone remind me of...

  • The Coupon Whisperer: Ping Pong Couponing

    01/17/2011 6:05:20 PM PST · by PJ-Comix · 31 replies
    Ping Pong. I have fond memories of that sport since we had a ping pong table in our enclosed patio when I was a kid. Other kids from around the neighborhood would gather and play and the early evenings after supper were punctuated by the sound of the paddles smacking the ping pong balls. However, all was not sweetness and light. I still remember when the kid we called The Monk, who had what we would now call Anger Management problems, would often turn bright red with rage when he narrowly lost and would frequently smash open the ping...
  • Dems' dirty deals: The next health-'reform' step

    NY Post ^ | January 11, 2010 | MICHAEL TANNER
    So, have you been following those health-care negotiations on C-SPAN? OK, that was below the belt. Maybe it's unfair to expect the negotiations to be televised just because President Obama promised they would be -- at least eight times. But at least we know that the media will be able to cover the conference to reconcile differences between the House and Senate bills. Oops, I guess we won't see that either -- because the Democratic leaders have decided to forego the traditional procedure. Instead, they'll rely on a seldom used method known informally as "ping pong," because it involves passing...

    Mother Alaphiah loves Barry Hussein Soetoro she voted for him. The only politicians that she adores more than the Soetoro’s are Bill and Hillary Clinton. Luckily I didn’t get all of my values from dear old mother Alaphiah. One value that I did get from mother, she used to constantly moralize how she, “hates a liar.” Needless to say lying was not welcomed around the Alaphiah household. Oh I wasn’t perfect but let’s say if mother ever caught me in a lie she taught me how to regret it. Because of my mother’s conviction I never developed the aptitude, dishonestly...

    Me | Today | Dan Pride
    I am curious why none of the media covers the most important aspect of the Malvo shootings. If you look at Newspapers on the dates when the shootings are underway you discover something I find quite interesting. The shootings begin to dominate the news the day before the debate on the Iraq war starts and they catch them the day after the declaration of war??? If you ask most people "do you remember the debate about starting the second Iraq war", they will all answer "yes of course". But if you followup with the question "name one point in the...

    I recently received a reply to a post that stated: "This should be beneath a "freeper". Sad." So I asked.. what is it that makes a FReeper? My reply (and I will admit was tasteless) was also questioning. It stirred controversy and was removed? Why Moderators? Can you not tell me? Did it not meet with your "FReeper" mentality? According to all posted guidelines it should be listed but no, you chose to delete it. Yes.. I'm the first one IBTZ, I'm sure you'll nick me for speaking up..

    Fellow Americans, there comes a time every mans life when we must give up ourselves before we are worthy to recieve. There comes a time in this war on terror when in order to protect liberty, we have to give it up in the mean time for safty. That's right folks. Today, Americans have forsaken the creator for the creation and have decided that they would value our "civil liberties" than protecting western civilization and rich white people from the tender mercies of radical Islamic terrorists.

    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. The national Bureau of Economic Research has identified...

    Lobster. The Journal of Parapolitics ^ | 10/29/05 | Peter Dale Scott
    Concluding Question: The Meta-Group and the United States Government It seems clear that the meta-group, with its influential connections on at least three continents, was powerful enough to effect changes, through the Russian 9/11, in Russian history. The question arises whether they could similarly effect changes in American history as well. As we have seen Russian sources claim that the U.S. Government has had access to he meta-group, for such especially sensitive projects as the assassination of Abu al Walid al-Hamadi. They claim the meta-group's involvement in a number of U.S.-sponsored regime changes in eastern Europe, from the overthrow of...

    04/05/2005 10:50:57 AM PDT · by Sammy sam · 153 replies · 8,234+ views
    Many argue that communism will never be possible because of "human nature". The essence of this false argument is the belief that a communist society would consist of an all-powerful central government that would tell everybody what to do--and would therefore undermine the creative initiative of individuals and the search for happiness. • This argument is based on two false assumptions: (1) It assumes that a communist society will look like the former Soviet Union, or the current China, North Korea, etc (ie: corrupt police states with a feudal-style ruling class) (2) It assumes that people will only work in...

Why want he? Do you know? Is there sombody we can call? Plaese advice.

    I like feeling wanted, but over the past several months I've noticed I'm getting pinged for things that I don't know (and unfortunately don't really care) about. The only ping list I remember signing up for is PJ's DUmmie FUnnies. Most of the other stuff is interesting, and it's nice to be invited into conversations, I'm just wondering if this is a common occurance with FReepers...or am I just odd? And really most of this stuff didn't start until I started with DUmmie FUnnies... or maybe that's the only time I really started noticing it. Any answers? Thanks

    North Korea on Saturday called for unity of all Koreans, accusing the United States of seeking to drive a wedge between Seoul and Pyongyang, as the two Koreas prepare to engage in a busy week of talks. South Korea has said that it will use a flurry of upcoming inter-Korean meetings, including talks involving senior cabinet ministers, to urge the North to pay heed to international calls to give up its nuclear ambitions. "It is an issue of particular importance to achieve great national unity now that the US imperialists seek to deprive the South Koreans of their sovereignty, hinder...

    SEOUL, South Korea - Showing no willingness to ease tensions over its nuclear weapons program, North Korea vowed Wednesday to build an army-based "powerful nation" and defy pressure from the United States. North Korea said it fears a possible U.S. military attack, but President Bush said he was confident the North's nuclear issue can be resolved through diplomacy. "This is not a military showdown. This is a diplomatic showdown," Bush said Tuesday. North Korea, in its New Year's Day message, called on its people to unite under "the banner of the army-based policy" and build a "powerful nation" to counter...

    TOKYO: North Korea on Thursday threatened to call off talks with Japan on security issues unless Tokyo returns to Pyongyang five Japanese who are visiting their homes decades after they were abducted to the communist state. "Japan is creating a new obstacle to an improvement in relations between Japan and DPRK (Democratic People's Republic of Korea -- North Korea) in violation of an inter-government agreement," a North Korean foreign minstry spokesman said. The statement was carried by Pyongyang's official Korean Central News Agency (KCNA) monitored here. The five abductees, including two married couples and the wife of a US defector,...
