Millions of GMO insects could be released in Florida Keys

KEY WEST, Fla. (AP) — Millions of genetically modified mosquitoes could be released in the Florida Keys if British researchers win approval to use the bugs against two extremely painful viral diseases.

Never before have insects with modified DNA come so close to being set loose in a residential U.S. neighborhood.

"This is essentially using a mosquito as a drug to cure disease," said Michael Doyle, executive director of the Florida Keys Mosquito Control District, which is waiting to hear if the Food and Drug Administration will allow the experiment.

What's with The Economist's strange and ominous 2015 cover? (for those who have eyes to see)

Ever play that game in Highlights Magazine as a kid called "hidden pictures?" I'm not sure how many free thinkers are left on the DP, but those in the know, know that the elites like to announce what they are going to do ahead of time. What can be gleaned from this strange cover of a publication known to be connected to the Rothschild dynasty? Vigilant Citizen and the resulting commentary makes for an interesting analysis.

Our Fate

Our Fate

Uniforms make heroes according to Rand
We never expected such a stand

Heroes kill foreigners for money
Man, that's frightening, not funny

My God, he's supposed to be the best
From what asylum came the rest?

People rotting in cages for an herb
Obscene searches along the curb
Read anything in school but the Word
Glorify what's wrong and absurd

Guns drawn over raw milk and real food
It's the military state mood
Put another medal on that dude
He killed another foreigner for crude

Bankrupt? Who’s Bankrupt?

A few years ago, with tongue securely in cheek, I wrote about the Fed buying Treasury Bonds. I tried using the absurd to make a point. I explained this would be like issuing your own credit card, buying everything you want, paying for the credit card with your checking account, and filling the checking account with cash advances from the credit card. I was just kidding. I never thought this would actually happen. It has. Similarly, years ago when I wrote about the nationalization of GM and the financial system I was again trying to use absurdity to make a point. My problem is that it’s getting hard to be absurd in America today.

When I read the headlines all I do is mutter to myself, “You just can’t make this stuff up” because when I did no one took me seriously.

Today with the Fed buying treasury bonds America has in effect declared bankruptcy. We might not think so because the mainstream media hasn’t mentioned it but our creditors have noticed. China wants higher interest rates and collateral. Dancing down the yellow-brick road to Insolvency City our leaders announce a new trillion dollar something or other every day. A trillion here, a trillion there and eventually trillion doesn’t sound so shockingly big any more.

Year of the Sheep!

The year of the sheep (ram, goat) is coming soon.

It begins Feb 19th in China, Feb 18th here in the States (the 2nd new moon after the winter solstice)

Sheep are benevolent mostly but can be stubborn as well. They are all about working together and finding harmony and balance.

The year is still a wood year so spring is still in the air but now we are in a yin year. Yin is the dark side of the hill...more feminine, the moon.

So, the seeds were planted, had time to germinate and then sprout! Now the plants are getting more mature and darker in color. This is the time that their direction and growth are fine tuned. This is when they reach for their best accomplishment. This is the time where they begin to mature and blossom everywhere.

College Student Detained by TSA for Arabic Flashcards Wins Settlement

I Was Arrested for Learning a Foreign Language. Today, I Have Some Closure.
By Nick George, via the ACLU | January 23, 2015

Five years ago, the Philadelphia police thought that carrying Arabic-language flashcards was enough to warrant the arrest of an innocent traveler. A settlement reached today in a lawsuit I brought against the police department makes it clear that it is not.

Travelling by plane can be a long and grueling process under the best of circumstances. This makes it a good time for monotonous tasks, like trying to iron out some vocab for a language you're learning at college.

In August 2009, I was planning to fly through the Philadelphia airport to start my senior year at Pomona College in California. I was carrying a set of English-Arabic flashcards that I had put together for one of my classes, as well as a book critical of U.S. foreign policy (written by a former secretary of commerce under President Reagan– not exactly a radical treatise). It should go without saying that this is perfectly innocuous, First Amendment-protected activity.

Turns out, it doesn't.

At the metal detector at airport security, Transportation Security Administration agents asked me to empty my pockets. I took the set of flashcards from my pocket and handed them to the officers. After I cleared the metal detector, they asked me to step aside for additional screening. One of them started rifling through the cards, and another took the book out of my carry-on. The minutes ticked by, and I got more confused about why I was being detained and more concerned that I would miss my flight. One of them called a supervisor.

Is Liberty popular these days?

Just riff off the top of your head for me.

I'd like to hear the first thing that comes to mind. That is usually the truest thing. Don't bother censoring - we're going to be out of here soon enough anyway. The Daily Paul's landing gear is down, we're on our final descent. The seat belt light is on. It is safe to talk to your fellow passenger.

And so, friend who I've never met, I turn to you and I ask, "Hey, fellow passenger, do you think Liberty is popular these days? (And I make to your spirit a silent prayer: "I acknowledge you as a fellow traveler, and a fellow American.")

What does our fellow traveler have to say? This is what I see:

Liberty used to be popular. We once loved her so much that we put her on a coin.

The Entire Universe, It Was Built on Love

What is liberty without love?
Give a soul-hug to your enemy
Awaken he becomes your friend

The entire Universe
It was built on Love

There are not enough words
Within all human tongues
To paint its truths

The entire Universe
It was build on Love

Wars never build our cities
Evil warfare never builds

The entire Universe
It was built on Love

What I Learned Hate Or Resentment Can Do To Your Mind

What I Learned Hate Or Resentment Can Do To Your Mind..

last week I had some food stolen from my work station. As I contemplated the event in my mind, I felt a swell of resentment come into me. The thought of having my food stolen was almost overwhelming to me.

* Many of you have experienced the same feeling..

After awhile I started to feel a little weird like I wanted to go out and steal something from someone else. I was upset or angry and wanted to go out and get back that which was stolen from me.

* Many of you have experienced the same feeling..
