  • Ted Cruz is just another smarmy politician

    Libertarian Neocon ^ | libertarian neocon
    I've always liked Ted Cruz, he is the Republican who I agree with most on the issues.  He's free market, pro-life and for a measured foreign policy (less aggressive than Marco Rubio but more aggressive than Rand Paul).  Most importantly, he would stick to his ideals despite pressure from the establishment.  He may have made some tactical errors because of that but I couldn't help but admire him for his idealism.  He has been the candidate that I would have voted for if I didn't care at all about electability.  Unfortunately, his interview last night with Megyn Kelly unmasked him...

    4 Simple Questions ..... 1. Back in 1961 people of color were called 'Negroes. So how can the Obama 'birth certificate' state he is "African-American" when the term wasn't even used at that time ? 2. The birth certificate that the White House released lists Obama's birth as August 4, 1961 and Lists Barack Hussein Obama as his father. No big deal, Right? At the time of Obama's birth, it also shows that his father is aged 25 years old, and that Obama's father was born in "Kenya, East Africa". This wouldn't seem like anything of concern, except the fact...

    According to “sore loser” laws in the state of Ohio, any candidate who has chosen their party essentially can’t, at the last minute, run on a third-party ticket in the state. With Ohio being a crucial swing state, that’s a massive hurdle for team Trump to overcome, should they wish to run a third-party candidacy in the future. Ohio Secretary of State Jon Husted and his spokesman, Joshua Eck, have already decided that due to the fact Trump “voluntarily participated” in the Republican primary debate in the state of Ohio, he’s already declared himself a Republican in the eyes of...

You can never "un-see" the two pictures at the end. Muslims have a hand sign that silently communicates the Shadaha, meaning, "The only god is Allah and Mohammed his prophet." The index finger is extended vertically to symbolize "one god." It is chilling watching the photos in this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GZOkuIdkBXg You can bet that 100% of the Muslims of the world viewing these photos of Obama know...

    The Supreme Court’s extra-constitutional decision to make same-sex marriage legal across all 50 states is not without its unintended consequences. Take for example this interesting conundrum: There was a rally to be held over the July 4th holiday weekend in the parking lot of a Walmart in a small town in South Carolina, home of the now-nationally-despised Confederate flag, a rally to show support for said item. In a small parade of vehicles carrying the flag, some were hoisting a second. One of these other flags just happened to be Jesse Jackson’s Rainbow Coalition flag. You know the one, the...

    April 28, 2015 (LifeSiteNews.com) -- I’ve been saying for quite some time that pornography is dangerous for more reasons than those that we typically discuss. Pornography is not dangerous just because it is spiritually dangerous. Pornography is not dangerous just because it is addictive, unhealthy, and unrealistic. Pornography is dangerous because it is becoming a new ideology of sex, in which women are objects to be abused and consumed and men are sexual aggressors, using the girls and women to physically extract as much so-called “pleasure” as possible.When I first spoke on this issue at the University of Ottawa with...

I proved my case in open court, but my evidence was ignored. I e-mailed Ted Cruz because he purports to be a champion of citizens' rights and principles. I asked for his help, but he couldn't even trouble himself to respond let alone offer any assistance. I guess he only supports individuals who can help fill his campaign coffers. Yessir, your tax dollars at work. Makes me proud to be a Texas conservative voter.

    Conservatives often find themselves at odds with the libertarian crowd. However, is that anger really warranted?

Neither group wants the government interfering in our daily lives and telling us what we can and cannot do. Now there may be slight disagreements on how that plays out in the policy arena, but we should not allow...

    Sen. Ted Cruz is getting close to announcing his candidacy for the Republican presidential nomination.

His mother was a U.S. citizen, born in Delaware; his father, a Cuban refugee working in Canada's oil fields. Thanks to his mother, Cruz was a U.S. citizen at birth. But that doesn't clear up a...

One deal-breaker that might surprise people, though: His opposition to gay marriage. NBC News and Marist College are out with a batch of new 2016 primary polls. And as you might expect, Common Core, immigration reform, belief in man-made climate change and support for raising taxes on the wealthy are among those with the potential to alienate lots of conservatives.

But other cultures have also depicted them according to their own appearances. Here are 13 beautiful non-white European depictions of the Blessed Virgin Mary:

    This frightening picture of two brothers with their hair on end was snapped just minutes before they were struck by lightning at Moro Rock, California, leaving the younger boy with third-degree burns and another man dead.  Electrical charges in the atmosphere just before a strike can lift hair into the air, providing nature's last warning of a bolt from the blue.These boys, 18 and 12, didn't know that, and the image has spread rapidly across the web this month.  The story behind the classic 1975 picture has come to light on the blog of Michael McQuilken, the teenager on the...

    On the rare occasion I find myself in agreement with President Obama, I get nervous. It just feels like a setup. Like someone's going to pull the rug out from under me at any moment. But right now, I have to admit, I was very pleased to hear the news that the U.S. and Cuba are moving to normalize relations.

    According to court records, in 1988 a 16-year-old Mr Wahlberg brutally attacked a Vietnamese man named Thanh Lam with a stick while spewing racial epithets and knocking him unconscious. Seeing police, Mr Wahlberg fled and found Hoa Trinh, another Vietnamese man. He put his hand around Mr Trinh's shoulder and asked the man to help him hide. After the police cars had passed, Mr Wahlberg punched Mr Trinh in the eye, permanently blinding him. According to the police report, during his arrest the future actor used several anti-Asian slurs. He served 45 days of a three-month sentence, all while maintaining...

    As a relative n00b, I remember when I first signed up on FR and being careful not to post anything at first for fear of ***SOB*** FReeper ridicule, that most every Sunday evening, some DUer or other troll would post some stupid, provocative thread just to piss FReepers off.The retaliation by FReepers was immediate and relentless. The troll was soundly over-powered by logic and facts that completely destroyed their point.The Viking kitties emerged and the trolls were soundly zotted into oblivion.Anyhoo, I haven't seen a good, Sunday evening ZOT in awhile. Do you have any favorite ZOTS that you remember?
  • Obama is a complete failure [Communist Noobie Teases with Title Then Flops, Fails & Gets Zotted]

    Hi. My name is Chris. I'm posting to state how angry I am at Obama. He has failed to deliver. It proves my point that there's no difference between the democrats and republicans. Here are some of the reasons. Obama gave a temporary reprieve to just 5 million. All 12 million undocumented immigrants deserve full US citizenship. Obama has failed to stop Keystone and has done little for the environment and to stop global warming. He may as well be a republican. He's failed to ban guns. He's essentially for the entire NRA agenda. He's done nothing to stop the...
