12,000 Joints Rolled in Seattle for Super Bowl Sunday

"That’s why employees at Solstice are working to roll a staggering number of joints — 12,000 in all — for its special “12th Pack” promotion ahead of Sunday, when the Seahawks face the New England Patriots in Super Bowl XLIX. That works out to roughly 180 to 220 joints made during an eight-hour shift — double the normal pace, NBC affiliate KING5 reported. “It’s not like I go home with cramps or anything,” a smiling employee, Katy Filippone, told the station."

How Playing Music Benefits Your Brain More than Any Other Activity

How Playing Music Benefits Your Brain More than Any Other Activity
by Maria Popova

“Playing music is the brain’s equivalent of a full-body workout.”

“Each note rubs the others just right, and the instrument shivers with delight. The feeling is unmistakable, intoxicating,” musician Glenn Kurtz wrote in his sublime meditation on the pleasures of practicing, adding: “My attention warms and sharpens… Making music changes my body.” Kurtz’s experience, it turns out, is more than mere lyricism — music does change the body’s most important organ, and changes it more profoundly than any other intellectual, creative, or physical endeavor.

I slandered the hero Adam Kokesh

Although I visit the site often, I don't post here at the Daily Paul anymore. I agree with Michael Nystrom that with Rand most likely running for president, the site is changing into something it was not when Ron was running for president in 2008 and 2012.

However, I do want to get something off my chest that has been bothering me for quite some time. I've said some nasty things on here about Adam Kokesh when he was planning to have an armed march on Washington that I deeply regret and wish I could take back. This was partly the fault of Jack Daniels and trying to get the best of his supporters on here when going back and forth on posts and comments. There is nothing more cowardly than to anonymously slander someone on the internet and I have to admit that I am guilty of that charge.

Unlike Chris Kyle, Adam Kokesh is a hero who has made great sacrifices for the movement and peace in general. I know he is not a Christian, but he certainly conducts himself more like one than most of the warmongering Christians you see in church and Fox News. Like Christ, he speaks the truth and is willing to sacrifice himself for that cause.

Booed in the Bible Belt

Booed in the Bible Belt

I didn't realize how dark it was until that night,
Of all places, I thought they would get it right,
But in darkness that could be felt,
They booed Ron Paul in the Bible Belt.

In the land of chapels and churches and more,
Where Bibles can be bought in every store,
Abysmal darkness enveloped all,
As they booed Dr. Ron Paul,
And under ever-darkening skies,
They cheered those with blood-lust in their eyes,
In the very place where great men once prayed and knelt,
They booed Ron Paul in the Bible Belt.

It was when Ron Paul took a stand,
Apply the Golden Rule to every land,
Quoting the words that Jesus said,
But he spoke to hearts quite dead,
And in that darkness that could be felt,
They booed Ron Paul in the Bible Belt.

Sons of Liberty: A Review

by Nelson Hultberg | Americans for a Free Republic

History channel, January 25-27, 2015.

Directed by Kari Skogland; written by Stephen David and David C. White.

The History channel’s new miniseries, Sons of Liberty, will anger the purists and the prudes. But it will delight the swashbuckler in the rest of us. It is a big, bodacious screening with superb production values that covers the lead-up years to the American Revolution, 1765-1775. Yes, certain liberties are taken with some of the facts and events. The main characters are glamorized. But the essential theme of America’s birth is kept intact: we as a nation were spawned by a band of rebels made up of assorted firebrands, smugglers, and philosophers all coalescing together under the rubric of Thomas Paine’s “Rights of Man.” Besides, what depiction of history is not romanticized by making the main characters a bit handsomer and younger than they, perhaps, were. Certainly not any depiction made for television.

The main character striding through Sons of Liberty is the famous Samuel Adams, played robustly by British actor, Ben Barnes, who doesn’t give us an actualization of Adams’ role in history, but rather a symbolization of it. First of all, Barnes is in his early thirties, and Adams was 51 years old when he fomented the Boston Tea Party. So the producers of Sons of Liberty are trying to give us the symbolic Sam Adams and what his role was in the creation of America. Sam Adams was the quintessential rebel mind. He didn’t have the scholarly genius of Thomas Jefferson, but he had a brilliant revolutionary mind. And valor permeated his entire life. He blended mind and defiance as well as, and perhaps better than, any of our Founders.

Sam Adams told his fellow patriots in 1773 in the build-up to the Boston Tea Party, “It does not take a majority to prevail…but rather an irate, tireless minority, keen on setting brushfires of freedom in the minds of men.”

This is what brings about all revolutionary change in history – small minorities of men and women fervently committed to a cause that will require courage and resourcefulness to bring into fruition. Yes, luck is also necessary, but mostly courage and resourcefulness because luck eventually descends upon us all. It’s the ones with courage who ride the luck into history and change the fate of mankind. Sam Adams and the “Sons of Liberty” were these kind of men. They seized the opportunity that the arrogant, blundering British gave to them.

Rand Paul slams Jeb Bush for medical marijuana hypocrisy

By Alexander Bolton | 01/30/15

DALLAS — Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) accused Jeb Bush of hypocrisy after The Boston Globe reported the former Florida governor was a heavy marijuana smoker while at an elite prep school.

Bush opposed a Florida medical marijuana ballot initiative last year even though he partook liberally of the herb while in high school.

“You would think he’d have a little more understanding then,” Paul told The Hill while en route to a political event in Texas.

“He was even opposed to medical marijuana,” Paul said of Bush, a potential rival in the 2016 Republican presidential primary. “This is a guy who now admits he smoked marijuana but he wants to put people in jail who do.

...

Bush has previously acknowledged using marijuana, which he has called “stupid” and “wrong.”

Some interesting stuff here, not all of it really great but some of it certainly is. I think #37 is my favorite:

"Withdrawal of Greek troops from Afghanistan and the Balkans. No Greek soldiers beyond our own borders."

Well, less than 24 hours later, our new "Greek hero" is cozying up to the same old crowd.
