    We Nebraskans shall have a momentous task, before the Nebraska Unicameral, tomorrow at the state capital in Lincoln. Several Legislative Bills will be proposed to the Judiciary Committee, and each of these bills is a travesty against the natural law. I have contacted the Committee Chair - Senator Steve Lathrop, to state my objections, and have them entered into the public record for each hearing on each of the proposed bills. I would appreciate that any Nebraskan, who is so inclined, either send their own testimony to Chairman Lathrop, or else appear at the hearings in Lincoln, which are scheduled...
  • Who really wants to drain the "Swamp"?

    01/23/2019 8:20:57 AM PST · by Rumplemeyer · 57 replies
    Here is one very easy way to drain the swamp that is our government. Change our present tax system to a flat tax system. You see our present system is based on a series of one shot laws written for the benefit of those making donations to our congress and senate critters. Why do you think the tax code is almost 100 thousand pages long? A flat tax system would eliminate this legal bribery. No more special exemptions for consideration of the generous donations to reelection campaigns of our "Leaders". These are known to we the great unwashed as "Loopholes"...

    FRiends, call your U.S. Representative today! Whether Democrat or Republican, all Congresspersons need to hear from the people in their Districts. Keep it short: We need the wall. Approve the funding. The Democratic Party has approved more than enough funding in the past, so quit playing politics with the People's security. Don't know your District or Rep? There's a link for your Congressional District in the thread.

    Does everybody understand Trump is trying to make Congress work like it is supposed to?? That includes citizens calling their representatives and telling them what you want them to do. SO, Have you called or written your Representatives and told them to Fund the wall once and for all and quit kicking this can down the road? They keep making the deal the Democrats want now, open the government first then we will deal with the rest... That is the proverbial football Lucy has been pulling at the last second for my entire voting lifetime now, 35 years. I say...

    I am asking all Freepers to contact their federal elected officials, especially if the officials are Democrats and insist that they end the partial federal shutdown right now. After listening to Rush L today, I got fed up with the shutdown and all the media nonsense going on. I agree that the Dem's are starting to weaken. It is time to turn up the heat to HIGH on them. That is why today I contacted "my" entire federal delegation and told them in no uncertain terms to end the shutdown. We all need to participate in the democratic process and...

    URGENT ACTION NEEDED! December 28, 2018 Dangerous Orwellian Data Mining Bill On President’s Desk Our 4th Amendment right to privacy is at stake. Despite public opposition, the Senate rammed through Foundations for Evidence-Based Policy Making Act (H.R. 4174) during the lame duck session. This bill is a de facto national database on every citizen. H.R. 4174 was originally drafted by Speaker Paul Ryan (R-WI) and rammed through the house on a voice vote. Knowing the massive public opposition, the Senate has quietly sat on the bill for a year until after the election and then rammed it through on a...

    Recently, I was elected treasurer of my local SAR chapter, the older male equivalent of the far better known Daughters of the American Revolution.Thus, I was appalled to learn what a partly rate of interest our existing bank paid on a recently matured CD (0.06%!) and refused to renew it, asking them to deposit it into our checking account instead.Accordingly, I am now actually shopping for another bank our credit union willing to offer a fine, patriotic organization such as our better rates and service. My retirement money, for example, is with Charles Schwab, where I can earn 2.3% (annualized)...

    Mr Lou Conter was on duty on the deck of the USS Arizona when the Japanese attacked on December 7. He took part in the fruitless search and rescue efforts. Later he flew PBY “Black Cat” bombers in the Pacific theater. Two years ago my son made a documentary of Mr Conters experiences for his Eagle Scout project. Mr Conter has become a dear friend and we try to get out to see him every 6 or 8 weeks, though he lives some distance away. To meet him you’d think he’s the nicest guy on the planet, not knowing that...

    The great state of Washington, through fraudulent petitioning and tricky wording, has placed on the ballot and passed I-1639; one of the strictest anti-gun laws in our country. We The People therefor ask that our great President and our public servants, step in and abolish such laws restricting, infringing upon and/or otherwise limiting our right, that has been guaranteed to us within the 2nd amendment of the Bill of Rights, and further protected and solidified through centuries of bloodshed and legal proceedings. We The People humbly and gracefully plead for your helping hand Mr. President. Please put an end to...

    Across the globe – from the victory of Brexit to the defeat of Angela Merkel and beyond – we are witnessing what may well be the last fight for the survival of Western thought. It’s a battle that has been waged since the end of World War II and is today coming to a head around the world. It is the battle between International Socialism (sometimes called “globalism”) and nationalism. At the end of World War II, it was recognized as nothing less than imperative that nothing like National Socialism (Nazism) ever be allowed to happen again. The Left...
