    This is long but worth watching. He makes many good points that address what we are seeing at this time, apply to society in general and not just on university campuses.

    I am finding myself more disillusioned with politics than ever before. It's not just the stolen presidential election but the entire media is now anti-conservative and going for the jugular to smear and destroy. Every article I come across you can see it and it's pretty depressing! They have some how got this guy in office and have to rally round him and boost him. Opposition must be ridiculed/smeared and called extreme. They're even coming after services like Parler and shutting them down. I still logon to FR - perhaps the last free space on the internet - but generally...

    A new research study finds that the drug Fenofibrate — which is used to help keep cholesterol levels low — can potentially help treat patients suffering from the coronavirus. The study, which was recently highlighted by Knowridge, relays that the coronavirus typically impacts the body’s ability to burn carbohydrates. This, in turn, causes “large amounts of fat to accumulate inside lung cells, a condition the virus needs in order to reproduce.”... ...One of the study’s authors, Professor Yaakov Nahmias, adds: We showed that the human lungs responded to the SARS-CoV-2 virus by completely changing their metabolism, causing a major buildup...

    In yet another inciting tweet from left-wing celebrities, far-left actor Alec Baldwin chose civil rights activist Martin Luther King Jr.’s birthday to describe a “dream” he had which included a noose hanging outside of a courthouse during President Donald Trump’s “sedition” trial. Inciting his radical Twitter following, the progressive activist and Saturday Night Live and Boss Baby star took to Twitter on Friday to share his vision which included the president undergoing trial for sedition while a noose — made of recycled protective masks — hangs from a makeshift scaffold.

Not of US citizen parents ... why is no one talking about this?

    A former Congressman from Tennessee set off an internet firestorm when he appeared on Fox News remotely Thursday, with a portrait of former Chairman of the People’s Republic of China and founder of the Chinese Communist Party Mao Zedong in the background. Harold Ford Jr., a Democrat, represented Tennessee’s Ninth Congressional District for a decade, from 1997 to 2007. Now, he provides commentary frequently on Fox News. Fox News viewers noticed some strange background decor during Ford’s appearance on “Special Report” with Bret Baier Thursday. “Wow, [Harold Ford Jr.] rockin’ the Warhol Mao over the fireplace. I liked the Muhammad...

    A Florida teacher was hit with charges for allegedly spraying students with disinfectant for not properly wearing their masks, the local NBC affiliate reports. Christina Reszetar was arrested on Wednesday at Largo High School in Largo, Florida. The 51-year-old was booked into Pinellas County Jail where she was charged with four counts of child abuse. Per the Largo police report, Reszetar said four students refused to wear their masks properly so she allegedly sprayed aerosol disinfectant "into the path of their faces and bodies." Reszetar appeared in front of the court on Thursday where she denied the accusations. Police reports...

    I’ve sold mostly books on Amazon for about 12 years, excellent customer service and compliance to the extent a person can remain compliant with the constantly moving targets. You don’t keep bucking the AZ bronco for 12 years without being thrown minus doing things right. In total I’ve carried about 15,000 titles, currently over 5,000 in inventory. Lots of interesting and often rare stuff, all genres, many academic titles. The account despite excellent metrics is now showing as At Risk with 3 Restricted Policy Violations because Amazon has without warning banned 3 titles for content. The first was a college...

    The question I have is: Is now a good or bad time to get invested in residential property? At first glance, it looks bad given what we are about to experience starting January 20th. However, with property getting snatched up sight-unseen by those fleeing the cities for way more than it's worth, supply will dry up fast. With the dollar reaching it's day of reckoning, and with interest rates likely to go up, I'm feeling a sense of urgency on this. Freepers are always a great resource of knowledge and wit, and I'd like some informed opinions if any care...

    Not that that’s stopped some people from trying. Edward Lee, the James Beard Award-nominated chef of 610 Magnolia, was so intrigued with serving pig’s milk cheese at his Louisville, Kentucky, restaurant that he experimented with different ways of milking a pig. The most extreme involved ingratiating himself to the sow by smearing pig poop on his jacket and sitting near her until she was familiar enough with him to fall asleep. Then he’d move in to milk—but even this was to no avail. In the end, as Lee told Modern Farmer, “Cows have been domesticated for so many years, they’re...

    People were baffled. They reported what they felt and saw on social media. People from the Keys to Palm Beach County reported the shake.

Since I was a stepchild, I was made to work till exhaustion doing household chores. As I became a teenager and was developing into a young woman, they told me that I was being sinful and overeating. They locked me in a basement with no food only water. I had a dream of becoming a missionary nurse, they told me I was too stupid to waste money on. They wanted me to stay...

    White women have been part of white supremacy in America since the very beginning, experts point out, dating back to their role in slavery. “They were at the table when the system was designed,” Stephanie Jones-Rogers, a history professor at UC Berkeley and author of the book They Were Her Property: White Women as Slave Owners in the American South, told Vox. “They were co-architects of the system.”That remained true after the Civil War, through the birth and evolution of the Ku Klux Klan, and during the civil rights movement when white women were some of the most vocal opponents...
