On Suivi Point [excerpt]
Post Date: 2007-05-11 00:43:20 by Tauzero
0 Comments
The headquarters of Nalosh Guaranty Trust--the third largest bank on Suivi Point, and working hard at making second--lay in the Suivi financial district, hard by Money-Printer's Square. Grevvit Mancinom occupied an office suite there, with real fish in the real water tanks in the outer waiting room signifying his ability to maintain useless and decorative objects in his working space. Mancinom was in the business of making decisions on his employers' behalf, and his decisions had, over time, proved lucky. At the moment, however, he was doing nothing more strenuous than half-dreaming at his desk, sipping at his midmorning cup of cha'a and contemplating the early financial ...

'The Lucifer Effect' by Philip Zimbardo (book review)

Where does evil come from? Look in the mirror, the author says. DURING the Rwandan genocide, the level of participation by ordinary, normally peaceful citizens was greater than the world had ever seen. I spent time there as a reporter in the mid-1990s, just after the slaughter of 800,000 members of the Tutsi minority, largely by their Hutu neighbors. I tried to imagine how I would have acted if I had been born a Hutu in Rwanda and had grown up in a culture that put a high value on pleasing authority, demonizing Tutsis and planning their extermination. What would I have done? Maybe I would have been a killer too. This is the kind of admission that Philip Zimbardo, a longtime psychology ...

What would you do if you knew that your government had created underground shelters for at least 1/3 of the politicians to disappear into in case of a national disaster (example)? What would you think if during this time, parts of the American Constitution was suspended?It's time you learned more.....I highly recommend you read my blog - Recommendation 666 - it's the same thing below for Europe.G ~Continuity of GovernmentContinuity of Government (COG) is the principle of establishing defined procedures that allow a government to continue its essential operations in case of a nuclear war or other catastrophic event. First developed by the British during World War Two to counter the ...

Badeye Banned from LP [Full Thread]

Well it looks like I was right - as more people filtered Badeye he realized that his efforts to disrupt threads and turn discussions toward himself were increasingly doomed to failure. He's now apparently left us and is back at Free Republic of all places. And, he's attacking NoPardons, so it's probably worth starting a pool to see how long before he's banned and comes crawling back to us.

If Texas Wasn't a State

Texas takes pride in being the lone star state. It likes to think it is so unique, has its own flag. Well, what if Texas had been castoff, like a less hospitable Mexico, to stand on its own - and the United States didn't have to bear the burden of this state where everything bad in our country seems to stem from. So let's take a look and see what we would be missing if Texas took its sorry ass and declared its independence (or, more accurately, our independence from them): The Alamo - I don't know which we would miss less, A) the ridiculous, embarrassing story of how a few hundred Mexican soldiers blew a whole bunch of Texans - unfortunately, also considered Americans - ...

Unguarded Gates

UNGUARDED GATES Thomas Bailey Aldrich 1895 WIDE open and unguarded stand our gates, Named of the four winds, North, South, East, and West; Portals that lead to an enchanted land Of cities, forests, fields of living gold, Vast prairies, lordly summits touched with snow, Majestic rivers sweeping proudly past The Arab's date-palm and the Norseman's pine A realm wherein are fruits of every zone, Airs of all climes, for lo! throughout the year The red rose blossoms somewhere - a rich land, A later Eden planted in the wilds, With not an inch of earth within its bound But if a slave's foot press it sets him free. Here, it is written, Toil shall have its wage, And Honor honor, and ...

The Always Relevant G.K. Chesterton

Quotes by G. K Chesterton that apply today. “Once abolish the God, and the government becomes the God." - G. K. Chesterton War is not 'the best way of settling differences; it is the only way of preventing their being settled for you. - G. K. Chesterton The Declaration of Independence dogmatically bases all rights on the fact that God created all men equal; and it is right; for if they were not created equal, they were certainly evolved unequal. There is no basis for democracy except in a dogma about the divine origin of man." - G. K. Chesterton Men are ruled, at this minute by the clock, by liars who refuse them news, and by fools who cannot ...

The Fiction of Harold Covington

It has been pointed out to me that there are a bunch of newbs on our list who have no idea what most of my non-Northwest independence books are about or where to order them, since the days when I could order hundreds of comps and pass them out free are long gone. For those of you who would like to sample some of my literary wares, I am presently the author of ten (non-Northwest) published novels using the "print per order" system which has effectively broken the hold of the multi-national corporations on publishing. They make good gifts, and there is a political and racial message somewhere in all of them, even the most crassly commercial. In no particular order of importance, my ...

The Coral Snake Rumsfeld/Aspartame Song Album
Post Date: 2007-01-16 00:31:15 by Coral Snake

The reason for this thread: Some time yesterday Doug from Upland form FreeRepublic posted a large set of Song Parodies on a FreeRepublic thread that he entered in a contest on a Neo Con radio talk program (Bill Bennet) dealing with the Sandy Berger "pants stuffing" theft of documents from the National Archives in 2003. As I consider myself in competition with him I'm introducing here a thread of my own update parodies from last year on my own favorite mocking target Donald Rumsfeld and Aspartame legalization. In this light I would hope that any lurker here associated with Alex Jones or Jeff Rense Consider a similar contest for song parodies on the Don Rumsfeld/Aspartame ...

From: Roy Beck, President, NumbersUSA Thursday 7 DEC - 06 What to do if nobody answers phone in Senate -- Stop the Cornyn doubling of foreign workers UPDATE ON TODAY'S CRITICAL BATTLE No. 1:Many of you are telling us that nobody is answering the phone when you call Senators this morning. That is a wonderful sign. It means that NumbersUSA Network members are keeping all the staff busy so they can't answer every phone call that comes in. If nobody answers the phone in the DC office, then look up the Senator's home state offices and start calling some of them. http://www.numbersusa.com/congressinfo/ The point will be to cause every state office staff person to understand ...

Words: After 4 years and a little over 23,000 posts on Free Republic, I'm taking my leave, probably permanently. The recent election, and a number of other things makes this a good time to quit posting on political topics and devote my time to pursuits that actually have identifiable results. I've made a lot of friends, and more than a few enemies here. I've tried, with varying degrees of success, to post in a reasonable way about subjects that interest me. I've had many people post kind words. I've also been called a troll, a liberal, a DUer, and much, much worse. I'm none of those things. I've even had one death threat sent to me via FReepmail, which I dealt with in my own way. I agree ...

Original song by Ren Shields and George Evans (1902) Update Parody by Coral Snake (2006) Midi - In the Good Old Summer Time (Musical Introduction) (1.) It comes each other year, Politicians hold dear, Fake election day. With their posters and signing, And campaign ad whining, Fake election day.

Child Molestation and Homosexuality
Post Date: 2006-10-29 12:22:17 by YertleTurtle

Ann Landers (1) says the statement "Homosexuals are more inclined to molest children sexually than heterosexuals" is false. The American Psychological Association has sponsored a work that asserts: "Recognized researchers in the field on child abuse,... almost unanimously concur that homosexual people are actually less likely to approach children sexually." (2) Why is it, then, that we read about sex between boys and men in every newspaper? Does it merely reflect sensationalist journalism? We know that heterosexual molestation also occurs. But since there are so many more heterosexuals than homosexuals, which kind of child molestation – homosexual or heterosexual ...

Thomas Paine: Enlightenment, Revolution, and the Birth of Modern Nations
Post Date: 2006-10-21 14:44:19 by Buzzard

Doubting Thomas There is a passage, laid down by Thomas Paine in the first installment of his 1776 political tract The American Crisis, that—in its precision, its intensity, its moral clarity—is a piece of unmitigated, coruscating beauty: Tyranny, like Hell, is not easily conquered; yet we have this consolation with us, that the harder the conflict, the more glorious the triumph. What we obtain cheap, we esteem too lightly: it is dearness only that gives every thing its value. Heaven knows how to put a proper price upon its goods; and it would be strange indeed, if so celestial an article as FREEDOM should not be highly rated. Sentences like those ought to be carved in stone. ...

Fred Reed on Politics and Women
Post Date: 2006-10-21 09:21:26 by YertleTurtle

In my capacity as Western Civilization’s principal moral compass and intellectual lighthouse, I thought I might explain politics once and forever. There are altogether too many television shows about politics, too many books by people who would better pass their time in drinking. Newspapers have gotten above themselves. They are full of columnists. A final explanation of all things political will allow the papers to concern themselves entirely with coverage of ghastly murders, divorcing celebrities, and the incursions of space aliens into Puerto Rico. In America, politics breaks mostly into two groups, both of whom probably do not have enough to do: liberals and conservatives. I will ...
