A Bright Sun Is Gonna Shine

A Bright Sun Is Gonna Shine

Changing the world for your future and mine,
Surely, a bright Sun is gonna shine,
The prophet of doom has always been wrong,
Likewise the balladeer's funeral song,
We're gaining momentum; we're moving along,
Unafraid of Leviathan, he's not so strong.

Our movement is spreading throughout the whole Earth,
It's a re-awakening; it's a rebirth,
We demand peace abroad and peace within,
False flags will no longer sucker us in,
Filling every thought and every breath,
Saying "yes!" to liberty and "no!" to death.

We can't be stopped; we're standing tall,

Buying a house...

Ok, so I would like to buy a house. What kind? How big? Who cares. Anything with a couple bedrooms is fine, but this is practically off topic.

My question deals with the economy. What I would like to know from the experienced minds on here is when you think the housing market may crash again. Tough to say yes, but I would like to hear you opinions.

Second question, what would be the difficulty of getting a home loan after the crash versus now and what sort of interest rates are we going to be seeing?

Meet Norton I - First Emperor of the United States

Scholars will debate till time merges with the singularity the merit and validity of presidential decrees, signing statements and executive orders. But no one can argue with the proclamations of an emperor - particularly when that emperor is Norton 1: First Emperor of the United States (& Protector of Mexico.)

FBI threats to MLK prompt snooping warnings

A disturbing, decades-old letter sent to Martin Luther King Jr by the FBI is serving, for many, as a reminder of the scope and history of US governmental surveillance programmes - and their potential for abuse.

Heavily redacted versions of the 1964 letter have been available for years, but an uncensored copy was recently discovered by Yale historian Beverly Gage. Now revealed are brazen threats to smear King by making details of his numerous extramarital affairs public and hints at an audiotape that may have accompanied the letter.

A decent cop story.

I wanted to share this little incident with you guys.

One day After tuning my motorcycle up I jumped out on the highway and cranked it up.

I did a little weaving and a little speeding and after about four miles I saw in my mirror a cop right on my butt.

Scared the crap out of me because I had reached 110 mph about a min before I saw him. So I immediately pulled over. He approached me and I expected the worst of course. He layed Into me hard. Yelling at me, "Are you some kind of freekin' idiot man? I saw you about five miles back go on the exit and then swerve back into traffic, that is so dangerous and stupid. It's not even so much the speeding but the swerving in and out. This is obviously not the place for that."

Me nodding, "I know, I know."

No Rules School: The headmaster throwing out the rules for breaktime

It's every child's dream and every parent's nightmare: no rules at break time. But at Swanston School in Auckland, principle Bruce McLachlan's radical experiment is to throw out the playground rulebook.

"The need to wrap up our kids in cotton wool is actually taking away a lot of learning opportunities", says pioneering principal Bruce McLachlan. Here, not only are the kids allowed to climb trees, skid around on bikes and fire makeshift weapons, it's encouraged. McLachlan's only direction: "Don't kill anyone". As a result he claims the children are much more receptive, confident and cooperative.

NYT: Rand Paul Drafts Formal Declaration of War on ISIS

WASHINGTON — Senator Rand Paul is calling for a declaration of war against the Islamic State, a move that promises to shake up the debate over the military campaign in Iraq and Syria as President Obama prepares to ask Congress to grant him formal authority to use force.

Mr. Paul, a likely presidential candidate who has emerged as one of the Republican Party’s most cautious voices on military intervention, offered a very circumscribed definition of war in his proposal, which he outlined in an interview on Saturday. He would, for instance, limit the duration of military action to one year and significantly restrict the use of ground forces.

Unlike other resolutions circulating on Capitol Hill that would give the president various degrees of authority to use force against Islamic militants, Mr. Paul would take the extra step of declaring war — something Congress has not done since World War II.
