The Last Hour
Nearly two-thirds of Millennials who identify as Republican support legalizing marijuana, while almost half of older GOP Gen-Xers do, according to a recently released Pew survey that could be an indicator of where the debate is heading.
Is there a point that you will stop being a part of this society, choose to either retire and no longer produce, or simply move away to another place that offers the freedoms you desire?
With over 1/3 of the USA population accepting welfare, how long are the producers of this country willing to keep producing knowing that there are over 100 million people that they must support through their own time and labor?
What will make you say, "Enough!"?
In a deliberate “show of force,” federal and local police forces raided a political meeting in Texas, fingerprinting and photographing all attendees as well as confiscating all cell phones and personal recording devices.
Los Angeles - (FOX 11) - Tensions were high Sunday in downtown Los Angeles after a 45-year-old black man was killed in an officer-involved shooting.
Police said when responding officers approached the man, he did not respond to orders, and they quickly had to upgrade to deadly force.
"He didn't have no weapon, they just shot him," a witness, Yolanda young, told FOX 11. "They could have just wrestled him down and took him to jail, but they shot him five times. "
Some people claim that some vaccines contain aborted fetuses among its ingredients, and recently pharmaceutical company Merck have confirmed that their MMR vaccine does contain traces of aborted fetuses.
ABC News reports:
A small but growing number of parents who object to vaccinating their children on religious grounds say they do so because many common vaccines are the product of cells that once belonged to aborted fetuses.
There is a grain of truth to this statement. But even religious leaders, including a future pope, have said that shouldn’t deter parents from vaccinating their children.
I can't attend but I want to spread the word.
On May 2, 2015, the Trends Research Institute and supporters of peace and prosperity will formally launch Occupy Peace, a movement designed to reinstate the core values that gave birth to this nation and to provide the tools for advancing peace.
Thanks to my Dad. Ever a source of wonderment for sixty years.
I've got to laugh this is so absurd!
Michael Hayden, who served in turn as director of the National Security Agency (NSA), principal deputy director of National Intelligence, and director of the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) from 1999 through 2009, elicited laughs and a loud jeer of “No you’re not!” in response to his assertion Friday morning during a Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) debate that he is an “unrelenting libertarian.”.....
I would like to have a big party with everyone myself, but if you could choose, who?
Me, for the fun of it:
It would be fun listening and watching the "Show".
Of course, I would be there, as a cheerleader and "sixth man", loving every minute of it.
“The [truth-finding] software works by tapping into the Knowledge Vault, the vast store of facts that Google has pulled off the internet. Facts the web unanimously agrees on are considered a reasonable proxy for truth. Web pages that contain contradictory information are bumped down the rankings.”
In this WaPo piece there's no mention of Rand. Is it the beginning of a blackout or could they just not find anything solid to tar him with?
Who I was 25 years ago, does not resemble who I am today. I used to be a liberal. I voted twice for Bill Clinton, a thought that makes me cringe now. I basically believed whatever the news told me. Oklahoma City Bombing, the benevolence of the United Nations, and the need for health care reform. I basically believed whatever history or science class in college taught me. I was proud to be an atheist and heavily relied on science to explain my existence. I was confident that my views were the right views and everyone else was either misguided, selfish, or stupid.
What can I say? I watched a lot of TV.
When 2007 had come along, I had grown slightly more skeptical of those in Washington. However, I went to bat for Hillary, convinced that she was going to bring some sanity back in our Country. Hillary and sanity don't even belong in the same sentence.
Warning lights began to flash for me when the media began to actively protect and make excuses for Obama. They propped him up beyond all reason. The Democratic caucuses and eventual convention were full of corruption. This was a disease that I thought only Republicans were riddled with.
I vowed never to support Obama. Of course then I was called a racist.
Attendees at CPAC Friday were treated to 13 minutes of vacuous remarks and awkward one-liners by RNC Chairman Reince Priebus, the highlight of which was his announcement that the RNC was now in control of how the presidential debates will be handled in the media during the 2016 presidential cycle. Matt Nye, National Chairman of the Republican Liberty Caucus, wrote this open letter to Chairman Priebus in response:
Dear Chairman Priebus,
Sam Youngman: Fresh from his CPAC victory, Rand Paul faces another big test this weekend.
Rand Paul just finished up a great weekend. If he wants to run for both his Senate seat and the presidency next year, Paul had better hope the good times keep rolling this weekend.
Last Friday, Paul supporters at the annual CPAC conference just outside of Washington, D.C. began chanting "President Paul" while Kentucky's junior senator spoke of liberty, presaging Paul's victory in the conference's straw poll, his third in a row.
This weekend will be a much bigger test with a less certain outcome.
On Saturday, about the same time the Kentucky Wildcats are finishing their regular season against the Florida Gators in Rupp Arena, Paul will formally ask the Republican Party of Kentucky's executive committee to approve a caucus for the 2016 presidential race, helping him out of a jam caused by a state law that prevents candidates from appearing on the same ballot twice.
