    1) After Obamcare was passed, unions that supported its passage requested and received special exemptionsWithin months after Obamacare was passed, Obama gave some organizations an exemption from some of the requirements of Obamacare. As time went on, more than 1,300 organizations received these exemptions.More than half of the people who are covered by insurance plans that received these exemptions are in union insurance plans. These unions supported the passage of Obamacare. But immediately after Obamacare was passed, these unions wanted exemptions from the very same law that they wanted to force everyone else to obey. This reveals an extreme level...

    Why is the New York government hiding the name of a woman who admitted that she had falsely accused two men of rape after her false accusation caused them to spend 26 and 11 years in prison? I recently came across this New York Times article from May of this year.It says that two innocent men were falsely accused of rape, and were convicted largely based on the testimony of the alleged victim.One of the innocent men spent 26 years in prison. The other innocent man spent 11 years in prison.The woman now says that the rape “never happened.”The New York...

    Global warming hypocrites fly private jets to global warming conference in San Francisco Global warming hypocrisy at its finest!Every single time they have one of these international global warming conferences, there’s a always a huge number of attendees who arrive on private jets.The most recent example of this hypocrisy just happened at the Global Climate Action Summit in San Francisco, California. The San Francisco International Airport said that corporate jet traffic was 30% higher than normal, and that much of this was due to attendees of the environmental conference.Why not fly commercial air travel instead?Or better yet, why not stay home...

I was inspired by the art work contained in yesterdays comments: from Son of Sobieskis fine skeletor street art to Claires little granddaughters hand drawn and painted cartoon characters. So Im just going to drop this lesson in optical illusion here for you to study. It seems a very helpful skill to have in todays climate. So get your paper, pens, crayons (Im talking to you Jetti) and rulers out so you too can practice the fine...

    Today my son brought up that they're having a "Peace Day" "celebration" tomorrow at school with stations to do things at. Such as "painting rocks with peace signs" and origami (wanted to do "peace" sign but wouldn't work he thinks). I.e., looks like they're pushing the stupid UN idea and of course, the hippie norm.

    Our two-party system can only work if both sides are of good will, in common agreement on fundamental principles, and profess fidelity to the country as founded. In their lust for power and the fundamental transformation of the Republic into a leftist tyranny, the Democrats can no longer function within such a frameworkjust as they couldnt in 1860-61, declaring war first on Lincoln and then on the United States of America itself. It took four long and bloody years for Ulysses S. Grant and William T. Sherman to show them the error of their ways. And even then, a Democrat...

    Believe all women. In the last week, this pious new mantra of the left has been used to completely dismantle an honorable mans reputation. Its incredible really, the idea that, in the year 2018, your biological makeup entitles you to be believed even in the absence of one shred of evidence. Set aside for a moment that the notion is completely contrary to the American idea that we are all innocent until proven guilty, the suggestion that we should believe all women is also dangerously irresponsible. We are told by the left that there are no differences between men and...

    WHY CHRISTINE BLASEY FORDS HIGH SCHOOL YEARBOOKS WERE SCRUBBED: Faculty Approved Racism, Binge Drinking and Promiscuity On Monday Sept. 17th, Christine Blasey Fords high school yearbooks suddenly disappeared from the web. I read them days before, knew they would be scrubbed, and saved them. Why did I know they would be scrubbed? Because if roles were reversed, and Christine Blasey Ford had been nominated for the Supreme Court by President Trump, the headline by the resistance would be this: CHRISTINE BLASEY FORD AND THE DRUNKEN WHITE PRIVILEGED RACIST PLAYGIRLS OF HOLTON-ARMS. And it would be an accurate headline. Thats why...

    Robert Mueller seems to have built in safeguards to discourage the president from pardoning Manafort. Special counsel Robert Muellers plea agreement with Paul Manafort on Friday took unusual and possibly unprecedented steps to undercut President Donald Trumps ability to pardon his former campaign chairman. The plea deal Mueller struck with Manafort contains several provisions that appear intended to discourage the former Trump aide from seeking a pardon and to rein in the impact of any pardon Trump might grant.

    California liberals “help” protect workers’ rights by causing them to lose their jobs In order to protect workers’ rights in California, a bunch of liberals wanted many independent contractors to be reclassified as employees. The state Supreme Court ruled in favor of this. The intent of everyone involved was good.But the results were disastrous. As is often the case with good intentions, there are “unintended consequences” which ended up hurting the very workers that the liberals had been trying to help.This video is from the Sacramento affiliate of CBS News. It shows how all the employees of a small business ended...

    Reflections on Constitution Day, 2018 On September 17, 1787, thirty-nine of the delegates to the Constitutional Convention got together for one final time, to sign the final document before sending it out to the states for ratification. (pictured: the Signing of the Constitution, by Louis S. Glanzman) There were 55 delegates in all, that momentous summer in Philadelphia, though all were rarely present at the same time. They had spent the summer debating both the big picture what was to be the relationship between the federal government, the state governments, and the people? and the small picture ...

    A major emergency brings out the best in some people, but in others it brings out the absolute worst. Shocking images of dozens of people ransacking a Family Dollar store in Wilmington, North Carolina have stunned the nation. This happened in broad daylight, and many of the looters didnt even seem to care that a television news crew was filming them. Sadly, this always seems to happen whenever a major disaster takes place. Our established social order is so vulnerable, and so many people out there will gladly take advantage of others if they believe that there is an opportunity...

    Amid a renewed push to release the full, unredacted FISA warrant applications against former Trump campaign aide Carter Page, House Intelligence Committee chairman Devin Nunes (R-Calif.) warns that Democrats and the mainstream media will be frightened by what Americans will see. The Justice Department released mostly redacted versions of four FISA applications against Page in July. The unredacted portions showed the FBI heavily relied on the infamous Christopher Steele intelligence dossier, which contains unverified and salacious information about President Donald Trump. The FBI had maintained they mostly relied on intelligence separate of the dossier. What did Nunes say? Speaking at...

    Dear Fellow Freepers. I'm trying to write a somewhat concise list that breaks down the hierarchy of Liberals. I managed to compact it down to 3 categories. Although a meme would probably be more fun, I am not trying to make a meme. Sorry. I'm writing this for my son, who has grown to be a wonderful, young conservative adult, and for any future grandkids I may have, should I be so lucky. Im also writing this because writing is cathartic, and this idea has been floating in my head for months. I'm hoping to get some feedback by fellow...

    Hurricane Florence was downgraded to a Category 1 storm by the time it made landfall, which means its but a puny thing compared to Hurricane Trump, the Category 5 storm that hit Washington DC on January 20, 2017, and whose wind speed hasnt abated yet. Talk about a stalled-out storm system! The winds of change can be like that some times. (Pssst, liberals: Ive got more heavy weather news for you. Hurricane Kavanaugh will make landfall at the Supreme Court next week. Definitely a Cat 5.)
