The Last Hour
Republican Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky called the plan “ludicrous” on the Senate floor before the vote.
“No one knows where these arms are going to wind up … We don’t even know who these groups are.”
Paul — known for his non-interventionist approach — said “we need to stay the heck out of their civil war … It is their war and they need to fight it.”
April of 2013, I thought silver price had reached its lowest point. Mr. Nystrom predicted last April that the price would drop to $18 within the next year. It has bounced around close to that, but finally broke below $18 today. On April 15, 2013, here is what I posted in response to his prediction:
Very interesting article from ZH:
Submitted by Brandon Smith via Alt-Market blog,
"Believe it or not, the federal government sends free pre-rolled cannabis cigarettes to a special, but dwindling group of patients on a regular basis beginning in 1976 with Robert Randall. It all started when Robert was arrested for growing cannabis on his back deck and had to prove that this medicine was essential in to prevent his progressive loss of vision from glaucoma."
Key phrase here: "PREVENT his loss of vision."
"A variety of options are available to treat glaucoma. These include eye drops, laser procedures, and surgery. All are intended to decrease eye pressure and, thereby, protect the optic nerve."
Key phrase here: "DECREASE eye pressure..."
which DOES NOT PROTECT THE OPTIC NERVE. It merely SLOWS the progressive loss of vision. It provides an awesome income stream for the drug company and the eye doctor, as visual field testing will be performed several times a year at about $100 per test - to map the gradual loss of vision. Meanwhile, the patient will buy those drops until they die.
I devoted a career to ophthalmology, and watched helplessly as doctor after doctor prescribed drops and did surgery and patients continued to lose vision. My own father had lost a considerable portion of his visual field before he died. It is beyond frustrating to know there is a way to save the sight of these people, and the government knows it, and every ophthalmologist I worked for knows it...

For those who believe in marijuana and cannabis freedom, the future has never been brighter. Right now there is an awakening to the benefits of cannabis for medicinal purposes, specifically something called CBD oil. But is the new CBD craze being manipulated by media and politicians? If it weren’t we wouldn’t need to do a show about it.
The first step toward truth is to be informed.
Take Action: View the "Activate" Plan at the end of the story
With all the horrible things going on in the world, it is not only good to find time to laugh, but also healthy. So I thought I would start a post and ask all of you, what is a scene from a movie, tv show, stand up, or even radio moment that made you laugh so hard, you thought you might pee yourself (or close to it). I'll start with some of mine.
Alleged ISIS Photo Controversy Engulfs Sen. John McCain
Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) and his aides swear the Syrian "rebels" he was pictured last year with weren’t ISIS members or supporters, and the mainstream media is by and large buying the 2008 GOP presidential nominee’s story.
But a closer look at the situation tells perhaps a different story than McCain’s office or the mainstream media have pushed.
I keep livestock. I take tremendous pride in giving them a very comfortable life. They have good shelter, plenty of organic food, clean water and immediate healthcare at the first sign of any illness or injury.
The government keeps taxpayers. They make a big deal of offering subsidized housing, food stamps, water treatment plants and now they even give us Obamacare.
I know why I want my animals to be content. I plan to eat them. I wonder what the government plans for taxpayers?
My view of the world has changed since I got serious about farming. I have come to suspect that the decimation of family farms in this country is because too many farmers will end up asking the same question I am asking.
(Don't worry, they are not cannibals. They just want to consume the fruits of your labors.)
Incredible, but not surprising in the least. I agree with the commentary on the video. Scotland had no chance of breaking free, and people in "democratic" countries only have the illusion of choice.
He had his green flight suit on and when he got close to me, I leaned toward his ear and said...hey man...just so you know, none of us want you guys to go off to fight yet another war for the bankers.
He smiled and said "Thank You!"
I didn't expect him to say that so it caught me a little off guard and so I replied..."so you know that all these damn wars are for the international bankers?" He smiled at me again and said..."Oh yeah, we know...BELEIVE ME...We Know!"
It was my time to head off to the teller so I just said something like...that's great or that's excellent...and walked away.
When I got back to my car I was telling my wife about the conversation I just had with the young fighter pilot. She said, I bet he loved your shirt...I had completely forgotten that I had on one of my Ron Paul Revolution T-Shirts.
Regardless, it made my day!
I wanted to thank everyone who downloaded and shared 28 pages the #FREE excerpt from the first book in the SECURITY THROUGH ABSURDITY series, Little Yellow Stickies.
About 2,000 people on Sept 11, of this year, read my account of how 9/11 went down inside the defense contractor's office I used to work at.
It is currently not free, but it will be again very, very soon. (like hopefully tomorrow.) I intend for it to stay free. Always.
I will be reading this exact thing at Brown University Bookstore, on September 30th. http://www.brown.edu/campus-life/support/bookstore/events
