  • The Debt Ceiling Is Breaking Ben Bernanke's Heart (Tiny Violins Alert)

    National Journal ^ | 10/9/2013 | Patrick Reis and Catherine Hollander
    Ben Bernanke has spent half of a decade trying to coax investors out of their post-recession bunkers. Now, Congress is set to once again send them running for cover. The country will default in the coming weeks unless lawmakers reach a debt ceiling deal, but just by coming close to the edge, Congress will pull markets in the exact opposite direction than the Federal Reserve has been trying to push them. Bernanke's bid to resuscitate the economy depends on two leaps of faith. Businesses need to have enough faith in the future to ask for the big loans they need...
  • Detroit’s Failure, a Product of Liberalism and Greed

    Detroit is a classic example of failed obamunism and personal responsibility; it played out the union-controlled socialism to the bitter end and it lost the destructive game - eventually all socialists run out of other people’s money as Margaret Thatcher used to say. Detroit is now a picture of litter and filth with few suburbs left that take pride in their appearance. Pontiac and Flint are not far behind in their march towards insolvency.

    I heard a defense attorney say that while she believed in the jury process and felt that they had reached the right decision, “George Zimmerman being found not guilty does not mean he is innocent.” The first thing that came to my mind is every client she has should fire her and that no one should employ her services ever again. Imagine, your defense attorney, for which you have paid handsomely, wins your case and then does an interview where she suggests that even though you were found not guilty it doesn’t mean you’re innocent.

    Hi Freepers, I have a question for you. It is late, so if anyone answers me, I’ll probably have to answer most posts tomorrow. I have this weird dichotomy going on. I go to church and pray a lot—but there is a part of me that just wants to die, although I don’t really want to. I was just listening to the Stone Temple Pilots—“I Got You”—about heroin. For a few moments I thought about how I might procure some, because tomorrow I have to go to the American Embassy in Ottawa to fix my papers so I can go...
  • Taking a leave of absence from FR

    I know FR may be getting a lot of these, but I am taking a leave of absence from FR. I don't know what to say about yesterday's election, except it fell way below our expectations. I usually come in and observe in here, and I was very hopeful we would win. But when results came out and we would not win, I just wanted to cry. Where has our country gone? This is not the country I know. In the meantime, I will leave FR until I feel the need to come back again. God bless you all for...
  • Global bacon shortage "unavoidable," group says

    (CBS News) BLTs next year might have to forego the B, according to a British trade group. Britain's National Pig Association, "the voice of the British pig industry," warned recently that a global shortage of bacon and pork "is now unavoidable" because of shrinking herds. The trade group reported Thursday that annual pig production for Europe's main pig producers fell across the board between 2011 and 2012, a trend that "is being mirrored around the world." The group tied the decline to increased feed costs, an effect of poor harvests for corn and soybeans. Even though the pig association issued...

    It was learned late Tuesday night that Cochise County Sheriff Larry Dever has died in a single vehicle rollover accident in Coconino County. Details of what occurred are sketchy as of this hour, but the news was confirmed by Cochise County Supervisor Pat Call at about 11 p.m. Dever was running unopposed in this fall’s election for what would have been his fifth term as sheriff. It is unclear at this time what his sudden passing will mean in the electoral process. The sheriff was more than a local law enforcement official as he took the lead on the national...

    (CBS News)PORTLAND, Ore. - A Monday evening rally to celebrate the death of Osama Bin Laden has been cancelled due to security concerns, reports CBS affiliate KOIN. "Just the reaction of last nights' news has been different, in different communities and we have been getting emails. Some have been supportive - sending best wishes and there are really 'out there' emails," said Salma Ahmad, President of the Islamic Society of Greater Portland. Ahmad didn't go into detail about the threats but it could be coming from both people who have an axe to grind with Muslims and Muslims who sympathize...

    Families of six trapped miners in Huntington, Utah were treated "unconscionably" during the rescue effort, says Governor Jon Huntsman. Asked to elaborate, he would not point fingers directly: "The federal folks did everything they could, let me just put it that way," said Huntsman. "I'm not going to get into the mine owner, other than to say that I thought the way the families were treated was unconscionable, and I think they deserve better."

    To: All Kentucky Outdoor Press Association members From: ****** I just received word that Bud Light, the sweetest little dog in the world, and the official Kentucky Outdoor Press Association mascot, had to be euthanized today because he had cancer and it had spread rapidly, leaving him to face delibitating pain. Nobody knows how old Bud Light was, since he was a "pound hound," adopted at the local animal shelter. It's also impossible to determine what breed he was, but he was a white, fluffy small bundle of joy. Any of you who ever attended the KOPA meetings know that...

    New Yorkers are more than stressed out. Many city residents have "frequent mental distress," according to a study released by the city Health Department. And they are not getting the help they need. Health officials said 1 in 7 adults living in the five boroughs reported frequent mental distress last year, compared with 1 in 10 in the state. The numbers were highest in northern and central Brooklyn, Harlem and the South Bronx. "Depression is a serious and underdiagnosed condition in New York City," said Dr. Lloyd Sederer, deputy commissioner for mental health services. "With so many New Yorkers having...
  • The Sadness of Life After Abortion

    Home The Sadness of Life After Abortion    FR. WILLIAM SAUNDERS Recently I read an article about the effects of abortion, which included "post abortion syndrome." Could you please explain what that is? Post Abortion Syndrome (PAS) falls under the category of "post-traumatic stress disorder." The American Psychiatric Association (APA) defines a post-traumatic stress disorder occurring when "the person has experienced an event that is outside the range of usual human experience that would be markedly distressing to almost anyone." Clearly, abortion, the direct killing of an innocent human life, fits this definition. Consequently, the APA’s Diagnostic and Statistical...

    Sex, sadness and suicide by Rebecca Hagelin Even those TV viewers who consider themselves big fans of the teen soaps – "Beverly Hills 90210," "Party of Five" and the now-defunct "Dawson's Creek" – must have realized that something about the way those shows depicted sex just didn't ring true. The "cool" kids, the kids everyone wanted to be like, were the ones who "did it." Supposedly, they were tough enough and strong enough to have sex and then walk away. They were able to "do it" for "its" sake. They didn't have to get involved in the maw of personal...

  • Check out this shockwave presentation: Very powerful and sad concerning terrorism in Israel

    http://www.readme.biz The spoken word is of Yitzhak Rabin (B'M). The former and assasinated Prime Minister of Israel who said that the Likud Party is afraid of peace etc. and he also says that certain things will not happen (while the pics show otherwise). Very powerful and sad presentation. The theme and final wording at the end is that the country of Israel is bleeding because of the adventures of the left in peace. We must not let the left get to power again.
