  • Have Absolutely Had It With Wikipedia's Nonsense & Tyrannical Editors

    Have Absolutely Had It With Wikipedia's Nonsense & Tyrannical Editors As someone who has been on Wikipedia for over 12 years, I've attempted on countless occasions to try to make my own contributions to the website. Besides correcting minor errors, my one main specialty was bringing up-to-date information on individual locations, going state by state. Meticulously researching census records, maps, online resources, etc. to try to improve said pages. It's a time-consuming endeavor, but I figure if it's helpful to others, perhaps a kid working on a research project, it's worth it. Not anymore. I'm sick to death of the...

  • Ted Cruz, GOP establishment have a really bad night in New York State.

    Ted Cruz & the Republican Establishment had a super bad night in New York, last evening. As I correctly predicted, the Cruz anti-New York remarks did him in , and, DJT slaughtered Ted Cruz politically....across the board. The same repeat act will take place next Tuesday in Connecticut, Rhode Island, Maryland, Delaware % Pensylvania. As for John Kasich...dream on, Johnny Boy, you is going nowhere, fast. Go Donald J. Trump!!!

    Our coffee club conservative meeting yielded an unusual conclusion, that some thought everyone knew. The GOPe are pushing for Cruz, but not for the reason some people think. They, In Our Opinion, don’t want Trump to win the nomination because he could/would win against any Clinton/Sanders contest, whereas Cruz, would not win against either of the Democratic contenders. So they are not backing a winner, they are purposely pushing for the Republican that will lose against the Establishment candidate, probably Clinton. Why would they do this? To keep Washington exactly as it is, and understand, they don’t give a Da!m...
  • Cruz, Kasich, Rubio, Sanders, Clinton.........get it terribly wrong!!!

    The very fact, that Ted Cruz, Marco Rubio, John Kasich have turned on Donald Trump, blaming him for these political rally disruptions.....when the folks to blame are, Black Lives Matter and Bernie Sanders. I dismiss Hillary Clinton rantings. These people are taking away your "First Amendments" rights. So.......any American voter that votes for Cruz, Rubio, Kasich, Sanders & Clinton is giving their rights to free speech and the right to assemble peacefully. First they will take away your right to assemble, then your right to free speech, thn they will come after your guns, as they destroy the "Second...

I was hoping someone could suggest; Restaurants Activities Good values for a Spa Good values for Golf...
  • The Definition of a "Concern Troll" - The Most Important Thread of the Day (Vanity, but true)

    09/23/2010 10:11:25 AM PDT · by Scythian · 148 replies
    Concern trolling is a form of Internet trolling in which someone enters a discussion with claims that he or she supports the view of the discussion, but has concerns. In fact, the concern troll is opposed to the view of the discussion, and he or she uses concern trolling to sow doubt and dissent in the community of commenters or posters. Although this practice originated on the Internet, it has since spread to the real world as well, with concern trolls popping up in a variety of places from network television to op-ed columns. Artful concern trolling involves developing a...

  • A Darwinist Religious Experience Described

    A Darwinist Religious Experience Described April 11, 2009 — As millions of Jews just completed Passover, and as millions of Christians gather to celebrate Easter, a Darwinist reporter was experiencing “existential vertigo” – a sweeping sense of dizziness as her imagination zoomed in and out of the implications of her faith. It may be the closest thing that a secular materialist can call a religious experience. And religious experience is an accurate description: it was the outworking of an all-encompassing world view, with ultimate causes, ultimate destinies, moral imperatives, and heavy doses of faith. Amanda Gefter (see her previous attack...

  • Vanity**How about a permanent boycott/alternative topic thread ?

    11/12/2008 8:45:45 PM PST · by austinaero · 7 replies · 396+ views
    I know we have had several calls for boycotts of papers and of MSM stations, and those calls have extended to boycotting of advertisers. I am wondering if we had a place to post those advertisers we are targeting in an organized way, as well as a place to post an alternative to the product/company being advertised, it might have more impact on the advertisers and be easier for us remain in an active boycott of a product. I don't post many vanities, this may be my second on in 3 years. Sorry if it's annoying.

    This crucial video, if released could COST Obama this election! Earlier today I call upon Mccain camp, talk show hosts, conservatives, Christians, Republicans to call, email /fax LA Times, pressuring them today! Yes, i understand how liberal MSM resists giving any help to mcCain, but can they ignore 1000 calls? or talk of boycott of its sponsors? Thanks ahead. What we lack is coordination, every one doing their own thing, their little project.
