The Person on the Daily Paul who I would Like to Thank is...

...Michael Nystrom.

As I was doing laundry this week, I was thinking about Michael Nystrom’s Daily Paul and how I butted into one of his conversations this week and spoke to him as if I knew him and told him thank you for inviting us into his living room. And then the thought crossed my mind, wow, I wonder what it would be like to have people in your living room A L L the time! Then I thought, I wonder what kind of grief that may have caused to his personal life for the sake of Liberty. And then I thought, I sure am glad he stuck with it. I have learned so much and have acquired many Friends in Liberty. Then I thought about the appreciation posts I have seen of late and thought Michael Nystrom is deserving of our thanks. Of course I had the thought that someone might think I was brown-nosing, but I have no ulterior motives or reasons to do such a thing. I AM truly thankful for the Daily Paul and Michael Nystrom, its owner.

Dear Michael,

Thank you for your concerted efforts on behalf of Liberty. Thank you for a place to come to find out Liberty-related news and to meet up with Liberty-minded people. Thank you for your efforts to make this available to us. Thank you for allowing us to your “living room” 24 hours a day. It is much appreciated. I have grown much in many ways over these past several months. When I finally found Ron Paul and the Daily Paul I finally found a Voice of Liberty and a rest from my wandering from fox news, talk radio and some way out places. I have received much education and acceptance by so many here and I appreciate the opportunity you have provided on our behalf.

Thank you, Michael.

From the bottom of my heart,
bear

P.S. My words are so inadequate; perhaps there are others here at the Daily Paul who can contribute to make this note of thanks more complete.

You are very welcome, Ma'am,

You are very welcome, Ma'am, haha, no need for that Sir stuff with me! I very much share the sentiments in your reply. I'd be on that list too and is just as concerning, pro gun, former veteren, pro life, VERY open Ron Paul supporter, (possible new category-Gov. Employee Ron Paul supporter) etc etc

I can only speak for one, but they are personal friends.

The Bear and Marcela situation is as real as it gets. I should have an update on their story in a day or two.

Love or fear? Chose again with every breath.

What are you talking about

????

I dont know anything about Bear and Marcela. I am not Bear am I, since my ID is bear?

Different Bear - please read this post

and if you care to bump it, these folks are still in need of all the help they can muster.

Thank you for the link. I

Thank you for the link. I have it pulled up and will look at the videos and make a comment. I have do some errands firts.

You are preaching to the

You are preaching to the choir and pounding home a message that can never possibly be said enough.

The D.P., its creator, and ALL of the members (oldies and newbies alike) are family.

NO One can drive you crazy like family! NO One can send you to both ends of the extreme at the same time except FAMILY.

NO One will correct your grammar, check your spelling, and show you how many possible ways there are to tell it better, shorter, and clearer, than FAMILY.

Only FAMILY will calm you and hold your hand when times are rough. http://www.dailypaul.com/101335/help-say-fare-well-to-my-fat... (THANK YOU, Mr. Nystrom).

Only FAMILY will give you a heart attack when you are having an otherwise pleasant day. http://www.dailypaul.com/132273/a-very-sad-day-for-the-dp-or... (I’m STILL waiting for the payback for this one).

YES, WE ARE FAMILY! We come with baggage, and varying degrees of appeal, but I thank the D.P. for bringing us all together and in particular, for putting up with me.

Welcome to the DAILY PAUL!

Thanks to Michael for its creation and to the many members who have seen to its improvement with their $. Thanks to all for just sharing their thoughts. Thank YOU Bear, for reminding us of our blessings.

DP Family!

Bear,Perhaps you would

Bear,

Perhaps you would consider starting a new thread? "Thanksgiving day 2012". Open thread for what you gonna do, who your doing it with ;), and how your going to do it. Take the idea and run with it....

Side note: I always hated that song....but thats just me. I like ABBA.

Hi

Thank you for thinking of me with the idea. I started that Thanksgiving theme here yesterday:
http://www.dailypaul.com/223623/daily-proverb

Yah, that wasn't one of my favorite songs. It just came to mind as I read your post...I never even think of that song...

Enjoyed reading your post. Thank you for the time you spent composing it and grabbing the links.

Uneasy lies the head that wears the crown.

:o

You have my sincerest sympathies, Michael.

Hmmm

Hmmm I can't make a comment because I don't know what that means. But it is for Michael afterall, not me :)

Yeah, thanks bud, for the place in your living room.

I've always wanted to know what being the remote control felt like with 500 people in the room.

November 6th 2012 I voted for Dr.Ron Paul
"We must remember, elections are short-term efforts. Revolutions are long-term projects." ~ Ron Paul

Did you look

under the couch?

Don't forget

8. Ron Paul Purist are attacking! Ron Paul Purist are attacking!

Those who make peaceful revolution impossible will make violent revolution, inevitable.

:)

Yah, that would be me...a purist. But I love all the GJ people too...I only get going when I perceive false stuff in the GJ message...I am a purist after all!

I'm probably going to waste my vote on an invalid write in of R O N P A U L...hmmm that's not pure (following the rules) when it comes to voting is it :)

Depends on who you ask?

It's pure as far as I'm concerned. :)

Now that you've made your choice? I'm glad to see you're not going to vote for Goode. He may be good on one aspect of Liberty as it pertains to Life but he isn't on many others.

As far as I'm concerned, you can't claim "I'm saving the unborn" and then shoot an Iraqi and call yourself anything but a hypocrite and a warmonger.

I'm a purist after all. We tend to be funny about things. :)

Agreed...It looks like the write in rules have changed and if a write in as well as a printed ballot candidate are selected, then no vote will be counted which is opposite of the printed candated will be counted.

That being said, I feel like I can vote Ron Paul without my ballot being tampered. I just came upon that "revised" information today.

I am going to say, murder is murder, but the unborn cannot run or hide or speak. Someone has to speak for them. But I suppose we already went around that block a few times. I see your point though. I just cannot stand that there is not a single candidate that stands for life. But I guess that is what you are telling me: "As far as I'm concerned, you can't claim "I'm saving the unborn" and then shoot an Iraqi and call yourself anything but a hypocrite and a warmonger."

Thanks for stopping in and saying so :)

I don't know what to say to that!

I have tried several times and nothing works :)

Evidently not, you changed it again lol

BTW.. that's not me down-voting you. I seem to have someone following me around downvoting peoples replies. I'm not sure if they genuinely dislike what's being said in response to my words or they're trying to start something between me and the other person.

Thank you for letting me know

I have been concerned that perhaps I had offended you and did not want to do that. Someone down-voted me on a bunch of my replies here and then the negatives were upvoted...all except this one, so I interpreted the message to mean my remark was uncalled for.

Hmmm, never consider that some 3rd person might be trying to start something between one party and another...a very smart one you are!

Learned something new this bright morning :) I am so glad we are off of day-light savings...I think that it is a plot against humanity...lol Have a nice week.

I usually vote the other person up if I think I see it

happening. I didn't this time because I wanted you to see it before I did vote it up.

+1 coming up. And don't worry about offending me, I'm a big boy. :)

OK Big Boy!

I am pretty much of a big girl too, I rarely vote my negatives up! Sometimes I can't help myself though, but I could have taken that negative away myself, but didn't do so. I figure I can handle it, and I figure there may have been a reason for it.

I do get my feelings hurt though,and when I do, I usually say so instead of attacking back.

I'm glad you're a girl..

Fishyculture just posted a thread about friends of hers "Bear and Marcela" and I thought..

Damn, I might have called a dude, sweet natured. lol

Whew!

But I am not that Bear, I am

But I am not that Bear, I am bear. However I do count fishyculter a friend. I count most everyone a friend, until they will not be friendly. It is funny, I think lots of the guys are gals. Never thought you were a gal tho, Big Boy :)

Now you know, I am a sweet natured gal bear...or at least I try to be :)

I have fishyculter's thread bookmarked so I can watch the videos for Bear and Marcola. Need to try to fit that in today.

Good to know.

:)

Signed~
