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.”

She was in handcuffs at the time.

Once he Tased her in her back, she fell to the pavement and became paralyzed.

She said, “I can’t get up.”

The officer sneered, “I don’t want you to get up,” as the high voltage electricity made its way through her limp body.

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.

Obama wakes up supporter, cures her apathy!

Well, I would suspect that most of us got the wake up call from the good Doctor.
And from being a member here. I know that I surely did.

I don't care who or what helps folks wake up.
Just please, wake up!

In this particular instance, Obama himself has facilitated this young lady's wake up call.
Not only to the truth of Obama himself; but the whole truth.

Paradigm Shift.
We are winning.

Rand Paul op-ed: How feds can legally steal your money

By Rand Paul and Tim Walberg
Updated 10:10 AM ET, Fri January 30, 2015

Editors Note: Rand Paul, a Republican, is a U.S. senator from Kentucky. Tim Walberg, a Republican, is a U.S. representative from Michigan. The opinions expressed in this commentary are solely those of the authors.

(CNN)There are many reasons why the Internal Revenue Service is perhaps the least-loved agency in America -- a tax code so complex that it seems like you need an advanced degree to understand it, the dreaded audit process and revelations that certain groups have been targeted based on their political beliefs.

And now, a growing awareness of instances where the IRS seized the money or property of law-abiding citizens without due process is adding to the agency's menacing reputation. According to the Institute for Justice, a public interest law firm that investigates civil forfeiture practices, these seizures carried out by the IRS had increased from 114 in 2005 to 639 in 2012.

Sounds unbelievable, but believe it.

How I'm Working to Make Liberty as Popular as the NFL

I spent 7 years in the Army and Army Reserves and had planned on making a career out of it, but when I started to notice that the freedoms I thought I’d been fighting for overseas were being eroded here at home, it led to my becoming a civilian again and a peace and freedom activist.

Some of you might remember the video that made sure I became a civilian again -


http://youtu.be/BvrlGhdQZac

After making that video, I immediately wanted to help make things right, so I got involved in politics, volunteered on a few campaigns, worked on a few, and managed a congressional campaign. We were largely ignored by the media, and I came to believe that until we changed the media, we’d always be on the losing end of things. I had that belief reinforced when told that most movements that won the day in the past, had won because of something in the media that became popular, pushed the culture, and then the culture pushed the political class.

Greece Taking Back Sovereignty From EU!

Greece is going politically Left which is not our style but it's certainly a better direction than EU Slave State. The new Greek Gov seems to be for real, and their smart and they seem ethical, and the Western Bankers are no doubt pissed! (how soon before NATO shows up to deal with them eh?). Must see interview here with Yanis Varoufakis the new Greek Finance Minister!

America is one big prison: Why mass incarceration is coming home — literally

House arrests are on the rise, transforming communities of color across the country into open-air jail cells

By Maya Schenwar | TomDispatch.com via Salon.com

This piece originally appeared on TomDispatch.
On January 27th, domestic violence survivor Marissa Alexander will walk out of Florida’s Duval County jail — but she won’t be free.

Alexander, whose case has gained some notoriety, endured three years of jail time and a year of house arrest while fighting off a prison sentence that would have seen her incarcerated for the rest of her life — all for firing a warning shot that injured no one to fend off her abusive husband. Like many black women before her, Alexander was framed as a perpetrator in a clear case of self-defense. In November, as her trial date drew close, Alexander accepted a plea deal that will likely give her credit for time served, requiring her to spend “just” 65 more days in jail. Media coverage of the development suggested that Alexander would soon have her “freedom,” that she would be “coming home.”

Many accounts of the plea deal, however, missed what Alexander will be coming home to: she’ll return to “home detention” — house arrest — for two years.

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.

I am of "Mixed Race" and from now on that's what I will claim

Oh sure, by appearance I'm defined as a "white" guy.

But my father's mother was Irish (Named Murphy, the most common name in Ireland). His father was Italian (Buchignani).

My mother's father was Austrian (Named Meyer, the most common name in Austria). Her mother was German (named Rashka).

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
My point:

I was born in the United States - as was were my parents.

But why should I just state "Caucasian" on job applications, licenses, health forms, surveys etc?

By definition, I am of "MIXED RACE" heritage and that is how I will answer in the future.
