The Last Hour
It broke Ruth Freeborn’s heart to give up her U.S. citizenship that fateful day last year. Unfortunately for the Oklahoma native, though, it was either that, or her family. Ruth’s Canadian husband of 33 years, who earns all of the middle-class family’s income, “simply could not go along with this situation,” she explained. “To find myself suddenly not able to live, bank, save or to keep peace in my marriage while being American at the same time was shocking at first and deeply disturbing to me.”

John McCain’s slip of the tongue won’t help him quell Internet accusations that he once met and took pictures with members of the terrorist group the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS).
Appearing on Fox News’ “Hannity” Monday night, the Arizona Republican senator went off on Rand Paul after host Sean Hannity brought up the Kentucky Republican senator’s concern that providing weapons to Syrian rebels will only end up benefiting ISIS.
"For everyday Americans, ignorance about what lies within the 28 pages is imposed; for apparently far too many in Congress, that ignorance is willful.
You see—unlike the citizens they represent—when it comes to reading or not reading the 28 pages, legislators enjoy the luxury of a choice."
"Given legislators’ role in advocating, shaping and funding defense and foreign policy, one would think descriptions like those offered by Jones and Massie would instantly spark a long, long queue outside that soundproof room in the Capitol—if not prompted by representatives’ professional curiosity, then surely by simple human curiosity.
(NaturalNews) Have you noticed the incredible detachment from reality exhibited by the masses these days? The continued operation of modern society, it seems, depends on people making sure they don't acknowledge reality (or try to deal with it). "Denial" is what keeps every sector of civilization humming along: medicine, finance, government, agriculture and more.
The trouble with the denial approach is that eventually the lies collide with reality. Until that day comes, however, happy-go-lucky Americans are merrily enjoying their courtship with self delusion, repeating the following 37 lies to themselves as if they were true:
Lie #1) All FDA-approved medications are safe to consume in any combination, because the FDA protects the public.
Lie #2) Food prices keep going up because inflation is a natural force that can't be halted.
I try to listen (or at least I did) to Larry Kudlow's weekly radio show.
Kudlow usually espouses the principles of free market capitalism.
But this past weekend he completely crapped the bed on his show.
All he could talk about was how we should send in our military over there to fight the ISIS threat which he claims "will be coming here next."
He sounded like a posterboy for the GOP war-mongers.
The 2nd thing he said which pissed me off was that he slammed gold and goldbugs (like us I suppose).
Summary: Glenn Greenwald says he has spent the last few months working on a story that will reveal the role of the Five Eyes network's smallest partner.

New Zealand's role in the Five Eyes surveillance alliance has been a sideshow to debates that have erupted in the USA, UK and Europe since former NSA contractor Edwards Snowden began releasing his trove of classified documents.
But that may change tomorrow night NZ time at the Auckland Town Hall.

Sen. Rand Paul wanted to eliminate aid to Israel. Now he doesn’t. He wanted to scrap the Medicare system. Now he’s not sure.
He didn’t like the idea of a border fence — it was expensive, and it reminded him of the Berlin Wall. Now he wants two fences, one behind the other.
And what about same-sex marriage? Paul’s position — such marriages are morally wrong, but Republicans should stop obsessing about them — seems so muddled that an Iowa pastor recently confronted him in frustration.
Rand ahead in New Hampshire.
Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) is leading the pack of potential Republican presidential contenders, but the GOP race is wide open according to a new poll.
In a CNN/ORC poll released on Monday, 15 percent of those polled said that they would most likely support Paul from a long list of contenders. Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush and Rep. Paul Ryan (Wis.) follow with 10 percent, followed by New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie and Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee with support falling at 9 percent.
Over the years on the Daily Paul I saw many cool "what is your favorite song" posts.
How about favorite educational quotes?
Today while searching for some material to post on Twitter I came across this great quote that moved me so much when I was growing up as a teen in at the time Communist Poland:
"In a time of universal deceit - telling the truth is a revolutionary act."
- George Orwell
So what is your favorite quote/s?
Please contact your representatives & ask them to PLEASE vote for this bill!!!

The Young Turks’ Cenk Uygur rarely has kind words for Republicans, but on Monday he said he would be willing to bet money that Rand Paul would beat Hillary Clinton and win the presidency in 2016.
Uygur credited Paul as a “voice of reason” on fighting ISIS, in contrast to Clinton’s hawkishness. He agreed that “our invasion of Iraq in the first place and all of the other bombings we’ve done in the Middle East… has in fact led to the rise of ISIS.”
