Yes it was!!!

I always felt honored to be part of DP. HAPPY BIRTHDAY AND MANY MANY HAPPY RETURNS!!!
I've come here at least once a day and often many more, since I found the site 5 years ago. Like a lot of you, we did not know we were out there until the RP & DP prairie fire of liberty happened and things have never been the same! Thank you Michael and long live Daily Paul!!!



Happy Birthday, and thank you for being a tremendous platform for people who love liberty.

That's Natural! -->>

I've been here almost 2 out of the 6.

I wish I'd known about Ron Paul, and real freedom longer than that, but grateful I'm awake now. Thank you Michael Nystrom for providing this outlet. Happy Birthday, and many, many more!

Happy Birthday Daily Paul, and many many more <3

Happy Birthday Daily Paul and to my friends @ DP. I am in recovery from my eye surgery. ALL is going very well. Your up votes, blessings, and get well wishes have touched me profoundly. I’m not supposed to cry, but you all brought me tears of joy. THANK YOU. I am going to chip in $76.00 for each up vote that was made on my, "I don't know when I'll be back on DP", post. And now to each of you who responded to my topic post:

(((((((Ulfilas)))))))) Thank you for the “Good Luck man”. It helped!

((((((Gene Greigh))))) Thank you for the “Good Luck”, and well wishes to come back even stronger. I’ve been told behind every strong man there is a strong woman. It’s nice to know strong men are still opening doors for women strong enough to open their own, but appreciate strong men to accompany them.

((((((((fishy))))))))) Thank you for the wish for a speedy recovery. Need that!! I’m on it!

(((((((((Michael Nystrom)))))))))) Your get-well blessings and love mean a lot to me. Last November I sent you a check for $100.00. I told you that I don’t need to be a Pro, as I was not looking to stand out on DP. I am very appreciative of DP and you. Still have your art on my walls; your stickers and tee shirts are still my favorites. THANK YOU!

((((((((FBI_Exposer Ω™))))))) Thank you for the luck and blessings and support, for our part in this good fight. I’m glad we’re on the same team.

((((((((((Pieter)))))))))) Yes, it was hefty, especially watching the surgeon toss the skin across the room in the waste can. As bruised and swollen as I am with both eyes, it still beats one of those cysts. Thank you for the best! I’m working on that too ;))

((((((((carlsbaddj))))))))) Thank you for the blessing and positive vibrations. During the surgery the doctors had a very positive energy, which made me laugh, so they told me to stop laughing, which made me laugh more. I was in the recovery room 2 hours longer than anyone else, all that positive energy they had to knock me out. LOL

(((((((((((((Wiseburn)))))))))) Thank you for the get well and telling me that I will be missed. It really means a lot to me, and appreciate that very much!!!!

((((((((((Thenung))))))) Yes, I am very religious, some say a zealot. I’m very dedicated to my Catholic Church and community. Missed my calling as a nun. THANK YOU for the prayers. I believe in the power of prayer absolutely.

((((((((((((LL)))))))))))) Thank you for the prayers and hugs my friend. I think the surgery went well. I look like Dr. Frankenfurter without the lipstick at the moment.

((((((((((((ytc))))))))))))) Thank you for the wishes for success, mind, body and soul. And thank you for remembering my post about surfing. If I had to do it all over again, I would, just wear goggles and mask when repairing boards. LOVE YO YOU sweet ytc.

(((((((((((brixiby))))))))) Thank you for the words to recover quickly. Doesn’t seem quick enough right now, liberty friend. Beautiful words! LIBERTY FRIEND

(((((((((((gibson))))))))) Thank you for wishing me a quick healing time, and sharing the experience your husband suffered through from a similar ill fate (in my case stupidty). I never thought of sun damage, and that is definitely a factor. Liberty needs all our voices and I’m happy know yours.

(((((((((SIERRAHBPT))))))))) Thank you for the “get well soon”. I need it.

((((((((((ralph hornsby)))))))))) Thank you for the condolences, prayers and very positive thoughts concerning my surgery’s outcome. I believe I can actually see better already, perhaps proving the power of prayer and positive thoughts really work!

(((((((((((Freeman08)))))))))) Thank you for the prayers and wishes for a smooth surgery and speedy recovery. The surgery was smooth. They even offered me a choice of a blueberry or pumpkin muffin before I left wearing a surgical cap filled with baggies of ice. I declined the muffins, went home and had a Baileys and coffee. I’ve had that bottle of Bailey’s hanging around here for years. Boy was it good. Knocked me out.

((((((((((((Jimney Crickett)))))))) Thank you for the hopes, prayers and best wishes. Your magic is working. I can see straight, I think. ;))

(((((((((((RxN3ST1)))))))))))))) Thank you for the good luck and positive thoughts on my surgery. The surgical team was great. Doctor seemed to feel very confident as he said he wouldn’t need to see me for a month. Maybe he just doesn’t want to see the psychedelic art (bruises) that developed on my face? ;)) UGLY for now.

((((((((((((egapele))))))))) I LOVE THAT SONG!!!! THANK YOU!!!! Thank you for the positive hopes and thoughts… “Nothing but blue skies. and face LOL

(((((((((((((Danton)))))))))))) Thank you for the best wishes, high hopes and orders to take care of myself and take it easy. You know how hard that is for me. I’ll take that Ron Paul beach towel now, filled with ice. Still loving you my friend.

(((((((((PigsAreFlying))))))))) Thank you for the prayers. I am definitely seeing things in a new light, and you’re still wrong most of the time. One day we’ll discuss this over wings, and then I know for sure, you will see it my way from then on, or else. <3

((((((((((((Realdeal))))))))))) Thank you for the wishes, hug and prayer. It’s always a pleasure to see you and I look forward to seeing even more posts by you, my friend!

((((((((((John C)))))))))))) Thank you for “all the best” hope for my procedure. IMO, you are a strong person and I appreciate and believe that your hope helped me HUGE!

((((((((((((agonzo1))))))))))) Thank you for caring and saying I will be missed. It’s good to know it’s mutual among those like you, who I care about too!

(((((((((((Mark Twain))))))))) Thank you for the best wishes. “Surf’s up!” Always somewhere in this world, the surf is up, unfortunately it won’t be me riding the rolling thunder anymore. I guess I can start poking muddy waters for sandbars instead?

((((((((((((Missy)))))))))))) Yes, it has been unpleasant for decades, but as you say, this procedure should give me relief. So far, so good. Always nice to see you!! @>->---

((((((((((((Luna Tech))))))))) I have been working at Living Light on and off for 5 years. I have 4 medals from the American Culinary Association in Vegan and Vegetarian food and am working on a business plan to open a Vegetarian Restaurant of my own. Juice Juice baby. Well, it’s ice ice for now…

(((((((((((((purplefetus))))))))))) Thank you for the best wishes for a speedy recovery and hope to see my back soon! It means a lot to me, to see you, and be seen by you. <3

(((((((((((((f-buzz))))))))))) Hmmm I’m not sure I get it. Do you really mean GOOD LUCK and SEE me soon? Hey!!! I get it.. Finally!! LOL

((((((((((((DEX))))))))))))) I’m doing my best to take care. It wasn’t too wise of me to not wear safety goggles and mask. I guess some folks have to age to wise up? I’m speaking for myself. THANK YOU for the kindness!!!! For FREEDOM!

(((((((((((((((Nonna)))))))))))) I’m very moved by all the love I see here on DP for me. I’m sharing it with you ((((((Nonna)))))))) I love YOU!!! THANK YOU.

(((((((((((((emalvini)))))))))))) Thank you for your hope and prayer! Thank you for making DP a place I want to be everyday!

((((((((((Denise B)))))))))))) Thank you for the thoughts and prayers. They are working and I’m very appreciative! I look forward to reading more of your wise responses!!

((((((((((((((Canada)))))))))) Thank you for the wishes for a speedy recovery and letting me know that I will be missed. You are correct about giving my eyes plenty of time to recover. That’s the hardest part of all. So much to see and so little time to see it!

(((((((((((((sailingaway))))))))))) Thank you for the best wishes. I had never heard of pterigiums either. Doctor said it was also called “Surfer’s eye”. I hope your nephew finds a really cool style of sunglasses and enjoys wearing them for the rest of his life. My last pair cost me $365.00, but that was a lot cheaper than the operation. Thank you for sharing the news about your nephew. I never thought about young people having that kind of damage, and it’s hard enough as an adult. God Bless your nephew and you!

((((((((((((Citizen_beta))))))))))) Thank you for the hope and looking forward to seeing me again. Yes, it’s very nice to see all the love for me. It’s the only thing that’s real. I’ve been here a long time and have made many friends, and why all those down votes don’t hurt as much as some who give them wish they did. Instead of a P AU L fest. Maybe we should just have a LOVE fest?

((((((((((((((((((bear)))))))))))))))) Thank you for the prayers my sister in Jesus and friend in liberty. I love you! <3 <3 <3

((((((((((Miguel)))))))))))) Thank you for the wellness power. Wellness power. I love it! Wellness power. You don’t mind if I use your term: Wellness power. @>------>-----

((((((((((((Paul_S.))))))))))) Thank you for the best wishes, prayers and educational post. You made me LOL with “One sign of bimetal toxicity here at DP is downvotes as people cannot understand what the author is trying to say.” Truth is funny. THANK YOU. I had laser surgury.. I’m not a heavy metal fan.. I do have a stainless steal cap on a molar I broke munching some coconut macadamia nut brittle I made a few years ago.. but plan to have that replaced this year with porcelin. I did diet pre-surgery for a week, and have kept it light.. vegan food since.. also plan on fasting for lent.. 40 days of 6oz lemon juice and 6oz Grade B honey with lots of water, cleans the liver, arteries and soul. Interesting you mention fungal cysts.. it seems there is an epidemic of that going around and most people don’t know what it is. I have seen some on my hands and the laser treatment seems to have worked. I have seen people with it on their eye lids.. seems I see it more frequently.. my tin foil hat tells me it’s a by product of geo-engineering meeting certain DNA that is suceptable.. It’s nice to be coming back to the flip side. Thank you for being here for me!

((((((((((sc2012))))))))) Thank you for the hope and cheer for a speedy recovery!!

((((((((((ecorob))))))))))) Thank you for the hope, wishes and good luck! I needed all I could get and getting some from you makes my recovery awesome!!! <3

((((((((JoshArizona)))))))) Thank you for the Good Luck and hope for a sucessful operation. It seems so far it was successful. I appreciate your positive flow.

(((((((((((Ubuntu))))))))) Thank you for asking that God be with me. And with your spirit! Appreciate the positive thoughts and renewal of passion for words of experiences. It is my streghth and I'm humbled by your expression of that for me.

(((((((((((1777free4all))))))))) Takes a toughy to know a toughy and I’m glad we are on the same team because I think you’re more toughy than me. As you know, I agree with much of what you say here, have always appreciated how you have stood for me, and beside me. We are friends and that makes me very happy! Thank you for the bedtime prayer and warm wishes. God heard you, and so do I. <3

((((((((((((Micha_6_8))))))))) Thank you for the best wishes, thought and prayers! It means a lot to me and has helped me recover and grow strong. @>->------

(((((((((((Obi-Wan Kenobe))))))))) Thank God for the humanity on DP to keep this site going without me. Thank you for the wish for successful surgery!! I really didn’t expect anyone to say anything. I expected my topic post to drop off the face of the DP as 99% do. Will wonders never cease?

((((((((((((Debbie))))))))))) Thank you for the care and welcoming me to return soon. It’s about all I can do to say THANK YOU to you, and those here who have ALL made my surgery, and recovery, successful. @>-->-------

(((((((((((A-B—B-A)))))))))) Thank you for the get well soon. I’m doing my best and apprciate your help! <3

((((((((thedoctorisin)))))))) No, you are not too late because I began using hemp oil back in 1993 when Billy Rose had his Hempnut company. Now John has Nutiva and I use his products. I also use purified olive oil, bio-oil and coconut oil. I found that the oils also provoked cycts, for as you say, they encouraged the body to elimanate the toxins, and that helped develope the cysts. I am now treating my eyes with AK-POLY-BAC, Bacitriacin Zinc and polymixin B sulfite, cleaning my eyes with purified olive oil and distilled water.

The sinus issue was tri-fold, the fiberglass being one, the fact I wouldn’t get out of the water.. I used to surf hours a day, and if it was flat, I’d be working out because I liked/LOVED big waves, and the water being polluted combined with colds/virus and bacterial infections.. it just all added up to blowing my sinus out. Matter of fact, this operation has me with a blood in my sinus.. but it’s nothing I worry about now that I can no longer surf as that operation took just enough flesh to assure I can’t put my head under water without the water rushing through my sinus and down my throat.

Surgery is always the last resort, and after 20 years of oils and still having to go to a doctor to remove the cysts, it was that doctor and my GP who recommended me to the surgeon who did the eye operation. Health is Wealth! Thank you for caring and advising me. I’m about to go put some purified oil on my eyes now.

((((((((Ed Ucation))))))))) Thank you for the best of luck and wishes for a speedy recovery! My eyes and face are itching like crazy.. means your wishes are working!

((((((((((sharkhearted))))))))))) Thank you for the blessing and wishes. I hope you fixed that second page on your site because I was getting emails, folks thinking it was my site. You have a huge fan club according to my email. At one point I regretted that I had sent it out, there were so many responses. GOOD LUCK on your site and thank you for being my friend.

(((((((((((dducks)))))))))))) Thank you for the most creative lots of luck and hug post I have ever seen on DP! I feel your hug. Hope you feel mine to you!

((((((((((joeinmo)))))))))))) Thank you for the hope that all would go well. I do believe that I am seeing better. Sure would make DP a nicer place if I could see better to actually write a post without typos and cryptic words. Geesh, sometimes I can’t even read what I wrote. @>->-------

((((((((((((crakkerjak))))))))) Ow! You bet!! Thank you for the speedy recovery!

((((((((((((HVACTech))))))))))))) It’s way too easy to be over confident and lax. That is so true. I was, afterall, Queen of El Porto.. I could, after all, surf big waves with the best of them. Me afraid of a little fiberglass? And lax.. you betcha! That’s very kind of you to say because for years I’ve been telling myself how STUPID I was. But now, thank’s to you, I know I was merely over confident and lax. BINGO! Thank you for the wishes. I would make a great poster child for over confident and lax.

(((((((((((Viperscale))))))))))) God Bless you and Thank you for the prayers, and looking foreward to my return. I’m really happy you are part of DP community because you teach old dogs like me new tricks. Thank you!

(((((((((((Paddysforronpaul))))))))) Thank you for the hope that I feel better soon. Truly your post has made that a reality.

(((((((((((ibdeeter)))))))))))))) Thank you for the best wishes. I am very happy to see you here. I was not too happy to see your “.”s On my account, as I feared you had left me, and I missed you. So I am very very pleased to get this post from YOU.

(((((((((((((Friends who emailed me and shall not be named)))))) GOD BLESS YOU ABUNDANTLY AND CONSTANTLY. I LOVE YOU VERY VERY MUCH, APPRECIATE YOUR LOVE, best wishes, Hope, Prayers, and songs.

Glad your recovery is going

Glad your recovery is going well!

(((((((((((John C))))))))))))

Thank you!! Slowly but surely it would seem, behind the rainbow colored swollen flesh and stitches, the itching and watering eyes all indicate the recovery is going well. It drives me crazy being limited to read and write. I can't wait to get back in the saddle and ride for Freedom and Liberty rather than just petting the horse and dreaming of when we'll ride together again, with fine warriors like YOU.


Wonderful to see you back on DP

Good Morning (((((((((Granger))))))))

Thank you my brother. When the swelling and bruises are gone, and the stiches have melted away, I am going to wrap myself in my LIBERTAS PERPETUA flag and hold my Ron Pauli Girl pillow, to have a new picture made for DP, so you can see me, as now.. I can see you, Heart to heart. <3


Sister in Liberty that will be such a sweet picture!

Just had a long walk and my cheeks are frozen.
