A Mother’s Letter: “Who Gave the Order to Kill my Children?”

A Mother’s Letter: “Who Gave the Order to Kill my Children?”

Natalia, the mother of the murdered Christina, wrote a letter to the mother of Poroshenko’s children, asking: “Who gave the order to kill my children?”

I met Natalia, whose daughter and granddaughter were killed in the Grad shelling of Gorlovka by the Ukrainian troops, at the railway station in Kiev. In the eyes of the beautiful and once happy woman today there is deep pain, sadness and emptiness.

How The Coming Silver Bubble Will Develop

The two greatest upward price forces known to man, an asset bubble and a genuine commodity shortage, appear set to combine in silver. Either one, alone, would have a profound impact on the price, but the combination seems both inevitable and almost impossible to contemplate in terms of how high the price of silver could be driven. And it’s hard to see how intense investment buying wouldn’t trip off industrial user attempted inventory stockpiling or vice versa; it doesn’t matter which comes first.

Soon the U.S. dollar will be worthless.

Russia has now officially begun selling oil to China without using the U.S. dollar as the trade medium. This is the latest step in the death of the pero dollar, and a big step in the end of the U.S. Dollar as a reserve currency.

When that happens the remaining 3% of the dollars original value will be wiped out, and financial collapse will occur.

Thank You to Everyone Reading DailyPaul 7 Yrs Now (Dramatic Non-Exit)

Recently there has been a lot of debate about what Dailypaul is. Is it another news aggregation site like Drudge? Does it serve a purpose? Is there any unified libertarian movement here? It is fun to watch users give ceremonial goodbyes and a rant or diatribe as to why they are leaving. I'm not sure why there are these dramatic Dailypaul exits but it is charming and characteristic that as people that support Ron Paul it appears we rarely leave quietly without some burst of self expression.

Swiss will vote on Nov. 30 for gold backed Franc

http://www.againstcronycapitalism.org/2014/08/will-the-swiss...

If the voters of Switzerland do choose to back their currency with gold I promise you that there will be MUCH more interest in the Swiss franc.

A gold backed currency? What a crazy concept. My bet is the market will love it. The banks will hate it, but overall the Swiss people will benefit. So will the non-Swiss who are paying attention now.

Switzerland yet again shows that it is the most sane nation-state on Earth.

When Idiots Keep Bees

We finally got a swarm of bees this spring! I put the lovely Warre hive boxes that hawkiye made to use at last! When the time came to add a box, I was living on the farm in the RV, the only bee book I had was "Beekeeping For Dummies" (a much loved and used gift!) and I just flipped to the page about adding a box. I went out and put the empty box on top of the full one. OK, my husband put it on top, but I was the one who said to do it. It had only been there a few days before I remembered that is one of the differences with Warre boxes, and we went to move it. Too late.

The Importance of Gold

It's Our Currency And Our Problem

Most Americans don't understand that gold is not an investment- it is an asset or an insurance policy.

Gold is money.

A country's currency not backed by gold is only as good as the soundness of its monetary and fiscal policy.

The Server Needs To Die To Save The Internet - Article on MaidSafe

Tip of the hat to Ernest Hancock, and the DP's Joη for this great article.

Do we have the Internet we deserve? There’s an argument to say that yes, we absolutely do. Given web users’ general reluctance to pay for content. We are of course, paying. Just not with cold hard cash, but with our privacy — as digital business models rely on gathering and selling intel on their users to make the money to pay (the investors who paid) for the free service.

Users are also increasingly paying with time and attention, as more ad content — and more adverts masquerading as, infiltrating and degrading content — thrusts its way in front of our eyeballs in ever more insidious ways. Whether it’s repurposing our friends’ photos and endorsements to socially engineer selling us stuff, or resorting to other background tracking and targeting tricks to divert our attention from whatever it was we were actually trying to do online.

Davis, California City Council gives cops 60 days to get rid of its MRAP military tank

Apparently not all city councils are thrilled with the idea of their local police department driving around “protecting” their streets with mine resistant, ambush protected vehicles straight off the battlefields in Iraq and Afghanistan.

The city council of Davis, California, a town of about 66,000 people near Sacramento, has now adopted a resolution to “tank the tank” as one protester put it, after a large crowd of concerned citizens showed up to the meeting. CBS13 reports:

Multimillionaire CEO of Centreplate caught beating defenceless puppy (VIDEO)


http://youtu.be/0Bm8v5AyYqE

A MULTIMILLIONAIRE sports catering CEO has been caught on tape abusing and beating a defenceless puppy.

Des Hague was in the elevator of a Vancouver apartment building when he repeatedly kicked the terrified Doberman in the stomach as the terrified dog cowered against the wall.

The sickening surveillance video shows Hague yanking hard on the dog’s leash, pulling it up sharply around its neck, causing the animal to choke.

Hague is the head of Centerplate, a $6 billion-dollar company which provides snacks at sports and entertainment arenas — including the New Orleans Superdome and Levi’s Stadium in San Francisco — across the US.
