    Cemeteries pay zero property taxes, something the mainstream media will NEVER tell you. That means the funeral home businesses that own that type of property make a fortune off of funerals, but pay no property taxes. I am an old man and just learned that yesterday and I read extensively. Interesting that the media doesn't see fit to print all that is news.

I fantasized that I was someone much greater than myself to deal with reality through decades of my life and wanting to be someone big can lead to something awful.

    Let's cut the crap. He was everybody's favorite here at this site for the longest time. 'Best Secretary of State we never had.' The Democrat Senators wouldn't approve him for the UN post. 43' had to go to a recess appointment. He would have gutted the (deep)State Department as we all wanted. Then the stupid '2k troops for Venezuela' clipboard memo and the calling out by Tucker Carlson. Has he been exposed by Trump or were the Democrats right all along? No sweeping under the rug this time.

    Did anyone in America, the USA, take notice of the Mid-Term election primary held in Democrat, liberal, Progressive, Socialist, Communist State of Washington, yesterday? Shucks, why the ever effective Media has acted like Washington was not there. Lots of press coverage for Ohio, Kansas, Missouri & Michigan...but, alas, barely a word spoken about the wonder land of the Democrat, Liberal. Progressive, Socialist, Communist state of "Washington" and its adored heroes, Bernie Sanders & Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, last night & today. Wonder why? one in heartland America cares & they say, let these fools and idiots destroy their state...and, California, and,...

    How to teach your children to read and understand the King James Version of the Bible Why? Before getting into the question of how you can teach your children to read and understand the King James Version, we should probably first discuss why you should want to do so. If you are an English speaker, even if you are an atheist you should want your child to be familiar with the great works in the history of the English Language, and the King James Version is certainly close to the top of the list, if not at the very top....

    <p>As a newly elected president, Donald Trump was quick to take one of Washington's institutional pillars down a peg. By snubbing the 2017 annual White House Correspondents' Dinner (WHCD), the president deflated what should have been more appropriately called the Sycophants’ Supper. Would that it was the last such supper. For now, the POTUS's bitchslap to this gathering of sycophants this past weekend will have to do.</p>

    I hate to be a pessimist, but I think the Supreme Court decision upholding Obamacare and the individual mandate has dealt a serious blow to Mitt Romney's election hopes. Right now Republicans are in danger of playing the losing hand of making the election about Obamacare. If it comes to an up-or-down vote on the bill, Republicans will lose. First let's consider what might have been. If the Supreme Court had voted 5-4 that the individual mandate was unconstitutional, the President would have had egg on his face. He would have looked incompetent. Remember, this election is not going to...

    Nearly 14 years ago in an appearance on “The Charlie Rose Show,” former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich revealed that he had sought advice from Pennsylvania State University coach Joe Paterno while at the helm of the U.S. House of Representatives. “I’ve talked to Joe Paterno at Penn State a couple of times and said, ‘Alright, I’m not getting this thing done right. What would you change?’ He gave me very good advice about how he coaches and how he brings along his assistant coaches and how he deals with the players. He said, ‘First of all, you’ve got...

    PREMONT (Kiii News) - A man, thought to be an illegal immigrant, is on the loose after reportedly attacking two women at a cemetery in Premont Wednesday night. Police, sheriff's deputies, and border patrol agents never found the man. The women say the man came out of nowhere, claiming to be from Mexico and in need of a ride to Houston. That man reportedly pushed the two women, grabbed one of their car keys, got in their SUV, and then tried to drive off with one of the lady's five month-old baby in the backseat. The women recently recounted to...

    I don't really have anybody I can talk to about this that would understand. I don't expect FR too either, but it's as good a place as any to vent. You know what I do? I get up every day and go to work. I do my job and get my work done. I come home. I do it again the next day. And then again, and again, and again. When I am dead, the most anyone will ever say about me is "he went to work ever day". If I were to simply drop dead, everything would pretty much...

    WASHINGTON (AP) -- President Barack Obama has granted the first pardons of his presidency, to nine people convicted of crimes including possessing drugs, counterfeiting and even mutilating coins. No one well-known was on the list, and some of the crimes dated back decades or had drawn little more than a slap on the wrist in the first place - such as the Pennsylvania man sentenced in 1963 to probation and a $20 fine for mutilating coins. The mutilation of coins occurred when a young Marine made dimes out of pennies, cutting the lip off, to use the coins in vending...

    It is rare that a movie affects me so profoundly that I feel compelled to write about it, but Nancy Meyers' "The Holiday," starring Cameron Diaz, Jude Law, Kate Winslet, and Jack Black, is just such a movie: It is so bad it drove me from the theater before it was even finished. I pride myself on sitting through to the bitter end during even the most ridiculous movies. It's how I got through What Dreams May Come, with clenched teeth and steely determination. But pride goeth before an evacuation, and after one hour and forty minutes, my friend and...

    President Bush has become so unpopular in recent months that he'd have a hard time beating Al Gore or John Kerry if he had to face his former Democratic rivals again this year, according to a Scripps Howard/Ohio University poll. And the president would be thrashed if he had to run against his own father, George Herbert Walker Bush, losing by more than a 3-to-1 margin in a theoretical match-up in which people were asked to pick between father and son. The 2000 and 2004 elections are among a very few presidential races that Americans would change, according to interviews...

    Many in the Evangelical, pro-life and other cultural conservative camps have seen the latest vacancy on the Supreme Court as THE appointment that will finally tip the philosophy of the Supreme Court far enough right to present a case that could overturn the bitterly divisive Roe vs Wade court decision of the 70's. Certainly there are many sides to this complex issue that has torn the country for over 30 years. A reading of the Supreme Court decision offers an amazing writing that draws not only from the 14th amendment and what has been termed the right to privacy, but...

    (I am a staunch conservative converted to the right by Rush Limbaugh. I remember the exact issue of my conversion - Limbaugh pointed out that so called cuts in federal spending were actually cuts in the growth of spending. Clinton's duplicity in using the words "spending cuts" insulted my sense of what defines honesty as did Clinton in general. But over the years I have become critical of talk show hosts. )In my opinion the best hosts are as follows; Rush Limbaugh, Michael Medved, Hugh Hewitt, Denver's Mike Rosen and Laura Ingraham. Hosts that suffer by comparison include Sean Hannity,...
