The Last Hour
Hey everyone, I'm so ecstatic right now. I have this natural high that you can't get from any drug. I'm just so proud of myself and only my DP Family can fully appreciate why.
I've been doing a few projects around the house lately to alleviate some stress and boredom. In October, I decided I was finally gonna start a garden and become a little more self-sufficient. I started collecting 5 Gal. buckets from work and picking up potting soil every week. I planted and I hoped, and it grew and it grew.
"Terry Bean, a Portland real estate developer and a prominent champion of the Democratic Party and gay rights, has been arrested on pending charges of sex crimes.
Bean is a founder of the Human Rights Campaign, which promotes action against discrimination based on sexual orientation, and the Gay and Lesbian Victory Fund for political candidates.
He also has raised money for President Barack Obama and other Democrats, including Bill Clinton and Al Gore. He is an at-large member of the Democratic National Committee".
Ok, so I would like to buy a house. What kind? How big? Who cares. Anything with a couple bedrooms is fine, but this is practically off topic.
My question deals with the economy. What I would like to know from the experienced minds on here is when you think the housing market may crash again. Tough to say yes, but I would like to hear you opinions.
Second question, what would be the difficulty of getting a home loan after the crash versus now and what sort of interest rates are we going to be seeing?
METRO VANCOUVER -- Joshua Smith is living proof that nobody is too young to help out people in their community.
He may only be seven years old, but the Burnaby boy is the mastermind behind a plan to feed 500 homeless people in Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside on Christmas Eve. It’s not a fanciful plan — he’s done it before, on a slightly smaller scale — but he does need some help, and for that, Joshua and his mother Traci Smith have sparked a crowdfunding effort to raise a small amount of money for the project.
WASHINGTON — Senator Rand Paul is calling for a declaration of war against the Islamic State, a move that promises to shake up the debate over the military campaign in Iraq and Syria as President Obama prepares to ask Congress to grant him formal authority to use force.
Mr. Paul, a likely presidential candidate who has emerged as one of the Republican Party’s most cautious voices on military intervention, offered a very circumscribed definition of war in his proposal, which he outlined in an interview on Saturday. He would, for instance, limit the duration of military action to one year and significantly restrict the use of ground forces.
Unlike other resolutions circulating on Capitol Hill that would give the president various degrees of authority to use force against Islamic militants, Mr. Paul would take the extra step of declaring war — something Congress has not done since World War II.
RONAN FARROW, MSNBC: John McCain reaching for the worst possible insult for President Obama earlier this year said this: "I have never seen anything like this in my life. I thought Jimmy Carter was bad, but he pales in comparison to this president in my opinion." The serious question is, what does is it feel like, and what is your response to, these moments of being used as an insult? Your legacy being used as an insult.
PRESIDENT JIMMY CARTER: That's a compliment to come from a war monger... I was lucky enough when I was president to keep our country at peace, and provide peace for others. I was lucky enough to go through my four years, we never shot a bullet or dropped a bomb or fired a missile.
I wanted to share this little incident with you guys.
One day After tuning my motorcycle up I jumped out on the highway and cranked it up.
I did a little weaving and a little speeding and after about four miles I saw in my mirror a cop right on my butt.
Scared the crap out of me because I had reached 110 mph about a min before I saw him. So I immediately pulled over. He approached me and I expected the worst of course. He layed Into me hard. Yelling at me, "Are you some kind of freekin' idiot man? I saw you about five miles back go on the exit and then swerve back into traffic, that is so dangerous and stupid. It's not even so much the speeding but the swerving in and out. This is obviously not the place for that."
Me nodding, "I know, I know."

The active molecules in cannabis kill brain cancer — another study has revealed.
Scientists using an extract of whole-plant marijuana rich in pot’s main psychoactive ingredient THC as well as cannabidiol (CBD) showed “dramatic reductions in tumor volumes” of a type of brain cancer.
Just a warning. This is absolutely heartbreaking.

[SERIOUS] Retired soldiers on Reddit: What was something that you saw or experienced that you never shared with anyone?
Also veterans, thank you for your service and dedication to this country. If you were in a different country's military, you'll still have my respect for doing serving your country.
Edit: I live in America, for clarification.
Edit: Wow thanks for the gold whoever it was.
Emails show Obama administration targeted reporter over her coverage of 'Operation Fast and Furious' scandalSubmitted by Calgary4Paul on Sun, 11/23/2014 - 14:04
"The Department of Justice's top communications official plotted to squash a reporter who aggressively covered the agency's ill-fated Operation Fast and Furious gun scandal in 2011, previously secret emails show.
The emails, between the DOJ's then-communications chief Tracy Schmaler and White House press flack Eric Schultz, are a rare look inside the Obama administration's press control machine.
The Swiss National Bank is stepping up its opposition, calling Save Our Swiss Gold, "Dangerous" as November 30 draws nearer.
Support for Save Our Swiss Gold Falls
In October, we first covered the Save Our Swiss Gold referendum to be held on November 30 that would require the Swiss National Bank (SNB) to:
– hold at least 20% of its reserves in gold;
– repatriate of all of its gold currently held outside its borders; and
– ban selling any of its gold.

It will not shock readers to hear that quite often legislation on Capitol Hill is not as advertised. When Congress wants to do something particularly objectionable, they tend give it a fine-sounding name. The PATRIOT Act is perhaps the best-known example. The legislation had been drafted well before 9/11 but was going nowhere. Then the 9/11 attacks gave it a new lease on life. Politicians exploited the surge in patriotism following the attack to reintroduce the bill and call it the PATRIOT Act. To oppose it at that time was, by design, to seem unpatriotic.
At the time, 62 Democrats voted against the Act. On the Republican side there were only three no votes: former Rep. Bob Ney (R-OH), former Rep. Butch Otter (R-ID), and myself.
Like countless artists before him, San Diego-based rapper Brandon Duncan's new album features a picture of a gun and bullets on its front cover. However Duncan, who raps under the name Tiny Doo, could be the first artist to go to jail for his choice of album art.
Duncan faces 25-years-to-life on gang conspiracy charges brought against him this week, according to the Los Angeles Times. Prosecutors will reportedly look to prove that the album art "willfully promotes, furthers, or assists in any felonious criminal conduct by members of that gang."
"That gang" refers to the San Diego Lincoln Park gang, of which Duncan is a member, according to San Diego police. According to the Times, at least 15 Lincoln Park gang members have been charged in a recent string of shootings in the city.
