The Last Hour
With a Washington Post writer in the audience to compose a hatchet job about Ron Paul and his friends, Tom Woods told the crowd exactly how the media operates, and why we're not allowed to discuss serious things.
Rand Paul sparred with fellow Republican hopefuls last night. Drawing some heat from the crowd, he separated himself from his more hawkish colleagues.
“I’m a big fan of trying the diplomatic option as long as we can…I do think diplomacy is better than war…what are we gonna do? Are you ready to send ground troops in Iran? Are you ready to bomb ‘em? Are you ready to send 100,000 troops?"...
Ted Cruz countered,
“This is the worst negotiation in the history of mankind,” Cruz said, predicting an Iranian nuclear strike in “Tel Aviv, New York or Los Angeles.”
I would probably agree with at least 90% of you 90% of the time on political topics. That is my guess anyway. Something that I have been confused on though is vaccines. It is pretty easy to be suspicious of a fluid that the government wants me to inject into my small children but my wife doesn't understand it.
My wife sees vaccines this way.
"The creation of vaccines has...
A. Killed millions
B. Made children autistic
C. Mind controlled the population
D. Been a globalist plot to summon in aliens to kill us all
Just riff off the top of your head for me.
I'd like to hear the first thing that comes to mind. That is usually the truest thing. Don't bother censoring - we're going to be out of here soon enough anyway. The Daily Paul's landing gear is down, we're on our final descent. The seat belt light is on. It is safe to talk to your fellow passenger.
And so, friend who I've never met, I turn to you and I ask, "Hey, fellow passenger, do you think Liberty is popular these days? (And I make to your spirit a silent prayer: "I acknowledge you as a fellow traveler, and a fellow American.")
What does our fellow traveler have to say? This is what I see:
Liberty used to be popular. We once loved her so much that we put her on a coin.

Why You Must Not Sign A “Refusal To Vaccinate” Form – At least, if you want to keep your kids that isSubmitted by JO4RP on Sun, 01/25/2015 - 09:54
The “Refusal to Vaccinate” form was created by the American Academy of Pediatric’s ‘legal department’ as a response to the growing number of toxic vaccines recommended by them and the growing number of parents who are becoming educated on this issue. According to the CDC our children should now receive 37 doses of vaccine between 0-16 years. [See Vaccine Schedule]

I Was Arrested for Learning a Foreign Language. Today, I Have Some Closure.
By Nick George, via the ACLU | January 23, 2015
Five years ago, the Philadelphia police thought that carrying Arabic-language flashcards was enough to warrant the arrest of an innocent traveler. A settlement reached today in a lawsuit I brought against the police department makes it clear that it is not.
Travelling by plane can be a long and grueling process under the best of circumstances. This makes it a good time for monotonous tasks, like trying to iron out some vocab for a language you're learning at college.
In August 2009, I was planning to fly through the Philadelphia airport to start my senior year at Pomona College in California. I was carrying a set of English-Arabic flashcards that I had put together for one of my classes, as well as a book critical of U.S. foreign policy (written by a former secretary of commerce under President Reagan– not exactly a radical treatise). It should go without saying that this is perfectly innocuous, First Amendment-protected activity.
Turns out, it doesn't.
At the metal detector at airport security, Transportation Security Administration agents asked me to empty my pockets. I took the set of flashcards from my pocket and handed them to the officers. After I cleared the metal detector, they asked me to step aside for additional screening. One of them started rifling through the cards, and another took the book out of my carry-on. The minutes ticked by, and I got more confused about why I was being detained and more concerned that I would miss my flight. One of them called a supervisor.

WASHINGTON — Rand Paul is demonstrating how he could disrupt the Republican presidential field if he seeks the nomination, sparring with potential rivals over Iran, Cuba and the Pentagon’s budget in a face-to-face forum that offered an early preview of the feisty policy debate to come.
The Kentucky Republican joined fellow first-term senators Ted Cruz of Texas and Marco Rubio of Florida on stage Sunday evening in California for a summit organized by Freedom Partners. That group is the central hub of the powerful network of organizations backed by conservative billionaires Charles and David Koch.
WASHINGTON (AP) -- Sheriffs are campaigning to pressure Google Inc. to turn off a feature on its Waze traffic software that warns drivers when police are nearby. They say one of the technology industry's most popular mobile apps could put officers' lives in danger from would-be police killers who can find where their targets are parked.
What I posted on the site:
All I know is that I have a visceral response to Ron Paul. When I hear him speak I think, "There's someone who's telling the TRUTH!" Rand just seems watered down. Also, I was a national delegate who unbound & helped nominate Ron Paul in 2012. Didn't know he was nominated, did you? But, he was. Rancid Prepus & the RNC wouldn't even let Ron give the nomination speech to which he was entitled. What has Rand done about this? Just gotten even cosier in bed with the RNC. Remember the saying about lying down with fleas?
