  • Suspicious Activity amongst the Islamic Community in Chicago (Since OBL Dead)

    I am sending out a question to those living in Chicago or Suburban Chicago. My dad has Arab neighbors next door who has their address posted in Arabic (not numbers). Their son was kicked out of school for making a bomb threat. Yesterday, I picked up my father at 2:00 PM and there were 10 cars in their driveway and along the street which was insanely bizarre. My family has lived there since 1990 far earlier than when they moved in and we never seen anything like that. So I was suspicious and took a bunch of photos. Tonight, there...
  • ARE COPS CONSTITUTIONAL?

    Seton Hall Constitutional ^ | 2001 | Roger Roots
    Police work is often lionized by jurists and scholars who claim to employ "textualist" and "originalist" methods of constitutional interpretation. Yet professional police were unknown to the United States in 1789, and first appeared in America almost a half-century after the Constitution's ratification. The Framers contemplated law enforcement as the duty of mostly private citizens, along with a few constables and sheriffs who could be called upon when necessary. This article marshals extensive historical and legal evidence to show that modern policing is in many ways inconsistent with the original intent of America's founding documents. The author argues that the...
  • 8 Characteristics of a Counterfeit Christian Church

    8 Characteristics of a Counterfeit Christian Church By Eric Johnson With the leaders of thousands of different religions and churches attempting to make their beliefs appear authentic, it behooves a person to carefully ascertain truth from error. In fact, many leaders of these faiths may call themselves "Christian" and even attempt to convert Christians into their churches. After all, Jesus Himself said in Matthew 7:15, "Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves." This is why John warned the believers in 1 John 4:1 to "believe not every spirit, but try...

    Every conservative is gone from the race now and Fred proved he had no stomach for a fight. He was behind after a few rounds and didn't even come out to see if he could win a last round knockout. He was a stalking horse for somebody, in my opinion. He froze up conservative money through the early campaign season and dissuaded dark horse conservatives from testing the waters . . . and then dropped out after campaigning in one state. Thompson has screwed up everything he's touched in politics . . . from his crushing of Nixon with his...
  • Thought about earthquakes in IslamoCountries [Zot!]

    me | 10/08/05 | LumberHack
    I was just wondering: Iran had an earthquake a year or so ago. They lost like 10,000 people. The latest quake in Islamabad, Pakistan figures to kill at least that many. Around the same time as the Iran quake, we had a larger quake in CA. The US lost 40-60 people. That is a far cry from the tens of thousands killed over there. My question is; since these quakes kill more adherents of Islam than Christians or Westerners, Is God mad with them? Personally I believe that the backwardness and idiocy of Islam contributes to their losses. I would...

  • The Mystery of Illegal Immigration: My Theory as to why both parties are shirking the duty.

    Before I begin explaining my theory, can we all agree that illegal immigration is a problem that most Americans (even liberals are against it, most of the time) disagree with? I voted for G.W. Bush for his second term because I was most certain that such a "conservative" President would do us all a favor and stop the 15 million illegal immigrants in our country, sneaking into our country at the rate of 3 million per year. After all, if homeland security is so important during this unprecedented magnitude of war, surely securing the borders should be at the top...

    The U.S. GOV'T is collaborating with the middle-eastern powers even as we are fighting with them. They are collaborating them in the area of gasoline, going around fixing prices and telling us that they have nothing to do with this, and that they can do nothing about this, I am here to prove that this is all a lie, and gas prices should be dropping to $1.50 $1.40 without them losing more than a penny!! It's all a conspiracy to keep the american public under the gun and to show us that the middle-eastern powers still control us even though...

  • ZOT! A Liberal Rates FreeRepublic - It's Not So Bad

    03/19/2005 11:31:39 AM PST · by Progman · 175 replies · 3,347+ views
    You folks would consider me a liberal, and I am not embarrassed at the label. I certainly believe in a safety net for society and helping minorites who otherwise would not be given opportunities. I had heard about FreeRepublic and expected this site to be a sinister plotting device for crazed right wing freaks. It's really not that at all. It is mostly a chatty mix of simplicities and Bush hero worship. It's actually rather timid here, you might even say banal. I guess it's the sort of intellectually challenged place that you would expect from red state denizens who...

    Comprehensive Test Ban Treaty Hey! Sorry for posting this new thread. I am not sure, maybe there is already a thread on the problem I’d like to discuss now. Still I want to say something else on the issue. I am sure you all know it is much told and discussed over the CTBT - the Comprehensive Test Ban Treaty - and the role of America in it. The CTBT was designed to prevent testing of nuclear weapons and hence reduce the chance of an arms race. I am an American patriot and I believe that the US Senate did...

  • A Way To Eliminate Payrolls

    Virtual Electronic Banks The basic idea of a bank is to first accept deposits from customers and then use those deposits as a basis for extending credit. The catch is that, instead of actually giving away their customers deposits, banks merely duplicate the money and back the duplicate dollars with the original deposit dollars. My idea is to allow consumers to do the same thing on their own. Private individuals could open virtual electronic banks directly with the Fed. These virtual banks would be purely electronic and entirely managed by the Fed. Individuals would not have any access to or...
  • In response to "Feminism, Rape and Unpretty Data"

    03/08/2005 8:27:02 PM PST · by Girl_in_Red · 101 replies · 1,233+ views
    This comment is in response to an article I recently read on this site when doing a search for rape conviction sentencing. I was horrified to see such a short sighted article, infering based upon the "information" provided that rape accusals are abused and lacking in credibility. As a rape survivor myself, I find this a hard arguement to swallow to say nothing of buy into. The reason I never went through with pressing charges is no one believed me and it was too emotionally raw to keep pursuing. It is harder than anything to get someone to belive you...

    Please note that several cities and towns in Ohio are about to make a mistake and put smoking bans on their books. Could you please put together a State law now that smoking bans are not allowed?This would save a lot of wasted court money in the future.You see, smoking bans are not legal. NY and FL judges have already agreed that bans are not enforceable.  (Links at http://www.smokersclubinc.com )  This makes all smoking bans illegal unless your State or town wants to train you, supply liability insurance, sign you on as police AND make it a law that anyone they...

    Roger Revelle's Discovery Before scientists would take greenhouse effect warming seriously, they had to get past a counterargument of long standing. It seemed certain that the immense mass of the oceans would quickly absorb whatever excess carbon dioxide humanity might produce. Roger Revelle discovered that the peculiar chemistry of sea water prevents that from happening. His 1957 paper with Hans Suess is now widely regarded as the opening shot in the global warming debates. This essay describes Revelle's discovery in detail and places it in the context of Cold War and other contemporary concerns which gave him essential material support...
