    A story that plays into where we are now bears recitation. I’m working from memory here and some of the details may not be precisely correct but the take away message has stuck with me all these years. In August, 1977, a small church in Louisville, Nebraska – Faith Baptist – was raided by armed agents of the state Department of Education for running a Christian school. The ostensible reason for the raid was that they were NOT adhering to the state “requirement” that ALL schools and teachers be “certified” by the state. A judge issued an order that the...

    I was watching TV and saw a commercial for TurboTax and noticed that they made a more compelling argument for lower taxes than the GOP. They simply state..."You work hard. You deserve to keep as much of your money as possible. Turbotax wants to help you. Every dollar counts". Why can't the GOP articulate its point just as clearly? It's an easy argument. Replace "Turbotax wants to help you" with "Republicans want to help everyone." These guys are so out of touch with most Americans that they no longer know how to communicate in anything other Beltway BS. Maybe the...

    Many Americans were shocked to learn about Georgetown University Professor Louis Michael Seidman’s advocation for the U.S. to abandon the Constitution — the central document that has helped spawn America’s growth and progression for hundreds of years. As previously reported, the constitutional expert recently noted his belief (via an op-ed) that a blind allegiance to the outdated document is perilous. On Friday, he defended his controversial views about some purportedly “evil” provisions in the Constitution in an interview with Fox News’ Megyn Kelly.

    This question pertains to a diminutive woman in her mid-60s. She has a .38 handgun but has been told by a few people (shooting range owner, RTC instructor's cousin, co-worker, etc.) that the best thing to have is a shotgun. They pretty much said that sometimes the only thing a perp needs is to hear the cocking of the shotgun and he'll flee the scene. I wanted to tap into the expertise of those FReepers who are knowledgeable of such things so I can pass along the info. Also, her funds are limited (fixed income), so any recommendations that would...

    It is clear to any man or woman of honor, that America has fallen from the mortal pantheon of Great Nations. We have, as a people, dwindled into a selfish and self-seeking lot, whose primary focus vacillates between maintaining our grasp of pop-culture, and making sure our prodigious guts are filled. It was not always thus: There was a time when we embraced God; when we would reach out to our fellow man in charity; when we would help nations in distress. Now, as we slide to socialism and communism, where the State enforces a 'charity of poverty', as opposed...

    TOPEKA, Kan. -- A sperm donor in Kansas is fighting a state effort to force him to pay child support for a child conceived through artificial insemination by a lesbian couple. William Marotta, 46, of Topeka said he is "a little scared about where this is going to go, primarily for financial reasons," The Topeka Capital-Journal (http://bit.ly/132b7Ji) reported Monday. When he donated sperm to Angela Bauer and Jennifer Schreiner in 2009, Marotta relinquished all parental rights, as well as financial responsibility for the child. When Bauer and Schreiner filed for state assistance this year, the state demanded the donor's name...

We have to match their intensity. We play the game on defense, allowing the left to call for our murder, propose draconian bans on regular arms, and push for un-Constitutional remedies while we try to defend instead of matching their effort. This is how they keep creeping the ball toward their goal inch by inch as we compromise our milquetoast efforts with their ravenous zeal. NO...

There is suspicion that the crimes are going to be ignored, with police aiding the cover-up. There were many outbreaks of violence earlier this week.

Why would the Speaker invite the President (which is only done by recent tradition since the age of TV, iirc) into his house to allow him to soil his hosts ? To do so is tantamount to...

    NUMBER FIVE: Pro-abortion advocates insisted that illegal abortions were rampant throughout South America. They claimed 800,000 Mexican abortions per year. Then Mexico City legalized abortion, and anyone who has gotten illegal abortions in Mexico can travel there to get legal abortions. Only 14,000 have done so. That's 786,000, or 98%, fewer abortions than estimated. NUMBER FOUR: In 1995, the Beijing Conference on Women set as a goal increasing the global availability of abortion, to prevent the global population from increasing to 20 billion by 2050. The conference failed miserably at increasing abortion (see Happy News #1), but no worries: the...
