Happy Birthday Michael!

It's hard to believe another year has passed so quickly.

Regardless of the outcome of this election, I will always be grateful for you, the Daily Paul, and the many things I have learned and shared here. I also wouldn't have gotten to know Dr. Paul's brother here in Texas, and wouldn't have made a couple of great friendships if it weren't for the DP connecting us ...

Thank you providing a place for the all the square pegs in round holes such as myself.
In some cases, it's been cheaper than therapy, and much more beneficial. You're a good man, and I'm proud to have gotten to work with, and know you.

Happy Birthday, Michael :)

Happy Birthday to the man that helped pull all of us Ron Paul supporters together as a family. Have a wonderful birthday and stay off this site and go have some fun today!! LOL

Thank you Jefferson, for remembering

Likewise, it has been a pleasure getting to know you, and serving with you .

I'm glad that this little website experiment has been of some use. It really blows my mind to think of how many people around the country use it.

So it is my birthday - the big 44!

When I was 19 years old, I dropped out of college to go live in Japan, and get to know my relatives there, none of whom I had ever met. For a brief time, I lived with my cousin in Yokohama, who was the spitting image of an older me. I remember that he was 44 because this is a very bad luck number in Japan. Phonetically, the number 4 sounds the same as the word for death. So in Japanese, he was 'death-death' years old, and therefore, he told me, he had to be very careful that year.

25 years ago that was! When I was 19, 44 seemed so old! So much changes and so much stays the same when you age.

Thank you Jefferson, for the birthday wishes.

It is my custom not to work on my birthday, so I likely won't be around the site much today.

Enjoy, everyone.

He's the man.

4 (SHI) is also a homonym with

詩 (SHI) "poem" and 師 "master, mentor". . . besides 死 "death" :-)

Happy Birthday Michael! I

Happy Birthday Michael!

I think this clip from Northern Exposure connects birthday, 'death-death', support for Ron Paul and the dance of freedom.


As you might know the actor Darren E. Burrows, who plays Ed, is a huge Ron Paul supporter.

Glad you're here and not in Japan!

Here, 4 is a number that represents solid foundation. This is your double foundation year! Because of YOU, Michael, Ron Paul and Liberty have a strong, solid foundation of support. Just look at the difference between now and 4 years ago. The way I see it, 44 is a very good omen. You planned and built this solid foundation. We owe you much thanks and honor.

A toast to Da Mayah: Many, many blessings, Michael. This is your year to be proud! Thank you for everything and Happy Birthday!

Dearest Michael,

Your site has quite literally changed my life...somehow a simple "Happy Birthday" just doesn't seem like enough. How 'bout a steak dinner on me?
Happy B-day, buddy!!

Happy Birthday to Michael N from us as well!

Many thanks for offering an inspiring comfortable place for us to assemble!

DP is really like a well-furnished salon with a fantastic library, welcomed by a wise warm host, that is YOU!
May you & your entire family be blessed for many more years to come.

Thank Goodness for the Ron Paul Liberty Movement: our new r3VOLution paradigm is moving the American foundation back to the pre-imperial healthy days.
