  • I received a speeding ticket tonight.

    01/18/2020 7:27:06 PM PST · by ebshumidors · 170 replies
    I received a speeding ticket tonight coming up hwy 7 from Ole Miss to Memphis. Since I haven’t had one in ten years or so, I found a few tings interesting: 1. The police were in the opposite lane and must have locked on without sitting on the side of the road with a radar gun. I imagine they have some new stuff that uses their speed against an oncoming car’s speed. Not hard to solve, but I’ve never run into it before. 2. Since it was at night, after I pulled over, I put on the overhead lights, rolled...
  • Whataburger

    12/26/2019 6:59:00 PM PST · by Smellin Salt · 74 replies
    As a native Texan, some of my earliest memories involve Whataburger. I love Whataburger. It's always been a matter of pride that me and Whataburger share the same birth city, Corpus Christi, Texas. As a youngster, I remember the Whataburger on 14TH street in Kingsville, Texas. Since those days, I have always seen Whataburger as a step above any "fast food" burger out there. I absolutely love that I can walk into a Whataburger at 7 AM and order a burger. So the sellout to a Chicago investment company hit me hard. I tried to maintain a wait and see...

    I just uploaded a video to YouTube twice. The first time it said "Video Unavailable" so I deleted it and uploaded again. The second time it also said "Video Unavailable." It shows up as published on my Channel yet the video remains..."unavailable." How can that be fixed or are other people having the same problem today?

    So Twitter accused me of: Violating our rules against abuse and harassment. You may not engage in the targeted harassment of someone, or incite other people to do so. This includes wishing or hoping that someone experiences physical harm. I replied to a Promoted Tweet from Adam Schiff seeking a contribution: @AdamSchiff R U kidding me! The only thing I'll contribute to is the rope to hang you with after your conviction for TREASON. (6:17 PM - 15 Oct 2019) This is my second ban in a month. I meekly accepted the first where I asked, after de Blasio banned...

    For some weird reason I can't sign in to YouTube via my Chrome Browser. In fact I never have to sign in because it reads my information automatically. However, this time I was prompted to sign in but when I click to sign in, I get an error message. How can I sign in. I can access my YouTube account via IE browser but I rarely use that. I need to sign in via chrome. I can't figure out why I am being blocked when I use Chrome.

    American Thinker ^ | 5/23/2019 | John Conlin
    Today, socialism is making a renewed push in the U.S. and has found a willing consumer among both the young and older bleeding hearts. Whether they understand what it would truly mean to become an socialist country is meaningless. They are behind it 100%. Conservatives are losing this argument, as they have for decades, because they argue from a false position. Even conservatives talk about having this or that political opinion as if it is something you can just personally chose; that it needn’t be tethered to any other reality. Kind of like which tastes better, chicken or pork… decent...

    A senior Palestinian official said the United States denied her application for a visa to travel to the U.S. on Monday in what appears to be the latest sign of escalating American political pressure on Palestinians. Hanan Ashrawi, a top official in the Palestine Liberation Organization and outspoken activist for Palestinian rights, told The Associated Press that she believed she was rejected for political reasons.

    This morning a post was pulled regarding the discovery of Mastadon bones in maybe Indiana. The reason cited for pulling it was "chat". I don't get it. The article was NOT a vanity; it was a published news article. Things like that are interesting and should be allowed. For God sake, they let a letter jumble puzzle be posted every morning. Does FR have a defined criteria as what is allowed and what is not. This kind of thing has happened more than once. Yes, it is Robinson's site and he can do what he wants, but to me this...

They also effed my texts and a few other things. I can't stand this cartoonish theme buttons! They are for 4-7 year olds and took my very professional looking phone down to etch-a-sketch looking crap. Rant off... I will upgrade to iPhone on my birthday and Samsung/Google can go to hell...

    She starts off her show tonight comparing this goofy looking homosexual mayor to Jesus. Of course she and everybody else is afraid to say how they really feel about this immoral creep. She opens her show by putting an unrepentant sodomite, “married” to another man, on a donkey mimicking Jesus riding into Jerusalem before his crucifixion! If this is not blasphemy I don’t know what is.

    I am trying to understand the standards and criteria for a post and thread being removed from FR. A few days ago, a thread regarding 2 Rottweilers killing a small child was removed. The post was from a legitimate news report. The content of the thread was not surprising, facts and reports being referenced on dog attacks, and emotional appeals along the lines of "I will own whatever dog I want." The point: This post was not different than many here at FR. Facts were being presented and a discussion was being had. Is there a stated criteria here at...
