The Last Hour
by Sen. Rand Paul
December 19, 2014
Paul is the junior U.S. Senator for Kentucky.
Let's hope cooler heads will ultimately prevail and we unleash a trade tsunami that washes the Castros once and for all into the sea.
I grew up in a family that despised, not only communism, but collectivism, socialism and any “ism” that deprived the individual of his or her natural rights.
I have no idea why, but my Dad started watching Ron Paul videos on YouTube yesterday. I was in the living room a few feet away, and imagine my surprise when I heard Ron Paul's appearance on The View playing from Dad's computer speakers. He hates The View, and until yesterday, I was pretty sure he hated Ron Paul because Fox News told my Dad Ron Paul was anti-military (sigh). Just a couple of days ago he was lamenting the millions of GOP voters who stayed home rather than vote for Romney.
He has proven that he is among the people who wish to be president at any cost.
"He showed sympathy for Israel's much-maligned settlement movement and questioned the desire among Palestinians for peace."
What an absurd thing to say. There is a lovely video posted here this morning, "The Quiet Revolution" which points out the truth: At our core, most of us want the same thing and peace is very near the top of our lists. To pretend Palestinians do not want peace is to deny their basic humanity. To pretend Israel is not an aggressor is to ignore the boundaries defined in the original treaty that created Israel.
Tell me something I don't know about you. This is kind of like DP truth or dare, only without the dare. We can do that one later.
Tell me something true about you.
I'll start: If I titled it, I'd call it "Nystrom, the Jap."

While I am American for the virtue and accident of birth, i.e., having been born on the soil of the Empire, my mother was a citizen of the country of Japan. She worked, as a copytypist (as in, to make copies), for the U.S. Army Occupation of Japan secretarial pool.
Why is it that so many efforts by liberals to lift the black underclass not only fail, but often harm the intended beneficiaries?
In Please Stop Helping Us, Jason L. Riley examines how well-intentioned welfare programs are in fact holding black Americans back. Minimum-wage laws may lift earnings for people who are already employed, but they price a disproportionate number of blacks out of the labor force. Affirmative action in higher education is intended to address past discrimination, but the result is fewer black college graduates than would otherwise exist. And so it goes with everything from soft-on-crime laws, which make black neighborhoods more dangerous, to policies that limit school choice out of a mistaken belief that charter schools and voucher programs harm the traditional public schools that most low-income students attend.
In theory these efforts are intended to help the poor—and poor minorities in particular. In practice they become massive barriers to moving forward.
"Senator Marco Rubio believes the embargo against Cuba has been ineffective, yet he wants to continue perpetuating failed policies. After 50 years of conflict, why not try a new approach? The United States trades and engages with other communist nations, such as China and Vietnam. Why not Cuba? I am a proponent of peace through commerce, and I believe engaging Cuba can lead to positive change.
Russia's NOT Selling Gold Adds 600,000 Ounces of Gold to its Reserves in November
There was plenty of speculation that Russia would begin selling its gold to protect the rouble. It hasn't happened and Russian President Putin this week said the Central Bank should not sell reserve assets to protect the rouble.
Indeed, Russia added another 600,000 ounces of gold to its reserves in November.
All Russia would have to do Is buy every ounce of silver available. 1 billion ounces of silver is what is available in the world. 1 billion times 16 is 16 billion dollars. Chump change to a government. Russia could swap Gold for silver easily. I think the Russians know the Achilles heel of the western banking system. Now this. http://www.stevequayle.com/index.php?s=33&d=1253
Love this; Rand on the Kelly File calls Rubio rude and intemperate; his interview starts at about 1:35. I can't seem to embed videos from Fox News so here is the link...if someone else can embed this, please do!
Another week, another fifty tons of physical gold delivered on the Shanghai Gold Exchange
No I didn't mean 0bama, I meant a real actual headache.
I've got a friend who's had a very bad headache for some months now. Not knowing what to do she broke down and went to the hospital a couple of weeks ago and the Dr's gave her some tests and an MRI and a huge bill that she really can't afford.
