Obama was not amused...

Obama was not amused... but the health care for all lost me a bit.. nor do I support any income tax..

If you disagree with me on anything you are not a real libertarian...

I'm crying now, really.

That was amazing. This deserves a better title..

I'm not supposed to cry,, damn it!!! That was so wonderful.

You are supposed to cry

All systems need exercise, including tear ducts. Crying helps to reintegrate blocked memories. It takes resources to block them, resources that tend to lessen as one ages, hence the "mid-life crisis" as we start remembering traumatic experiences more vividly. Crying can help make that reintegration less stressful.

You are loved; keep crying.

I love you. I'm sorry. Please forgive me. Thank you.

Naturally, that would be true ((((TwelveOhOne)))))

But since I had surgery three weeks ago, my eyes are still healing, and the cyst is where a remaining fiberglass shard has developed under the stiches, so it's very painful and promotes bruising, that is not helping the healing, but making the lump a big purple cyst that will require further surgery.

YOU are LOVED; I will keep crying, but for now, really need to "ice it" (and use hot compresses to relieve it).

Thanks, and I wish you a speedy recovery.

If I may: you might want to look into Jin Shin Jyutsu, or other energy healing modality (I'm most familiar with JSJ). All energy healing involves placement of the hands, which channel the energy, and deep breathing, which helps to move it. In JSJ, there are 26 points on the body (generally pairs of points, left/right), and you "jumper-cable" two points together by placing the fingertips of one hand on one point, and the other on another point.

I'm no expert, so I'd need to look up what works best for eyes.

Which I just did (in the book "The Touch of Healing" by Alice Burmeister), it says for eyestrain (page 166), hold #4 (back of the head where skull starts), and opposite #21 (cheekbone). There's a diagram on-line of the points, let me find it: http://oneone.abmp.com/JSJ_26_safety_energy_locks.jpg

I hope this can help.

I love you. I'm sorry. Please forgive me. Thank you.

I 2nd the must watch

I 2nd the must watch

wow. amazing speech

and right in front of Obama too. BWAHAHAHAHAHAH!!!!

Gov needs more Doctors. That's what all of us have been saying at least since 2008.

I bet you anything this Dr is a Libertarian. He may not call himself as such, but I bet you he has the same principals as most of us.

Great speech

His long-term health savings account, including being able to pass it on to future generations, is genius!


Freedom - Peace - Prosperity

Loved the insertion of "We have 4 branches of gov't today...."

"...the 4th being special interest groups."


The look on Obama's face: priceless.

And when he was talking about YOU (WE) controlling our own destinies, I thought of Obama saying, "You didn't build that!":


"It is well enough that people of the nation do not understand our banking and monetary system, for if they did, I believe there would be a rEVOLution before tomorrow morning." - Henry Ford


You know Ian56 you could charge a pretty hefty fee to watch this.

Oblama is just sittin there goin O BUMMER!

Gifted Hands

I read his book called "Gifted Hands" a long time ago. Great book, glad to see he is still at it.

Simply incredible speech.

Simply incredible speech.

As a libertarian I am against a 10% incometax.

But I suppose his proposal has a better chance of flying. What you think?

10% is a hell of a big step in the right direction

compared to the 28%+ most people are now paying.

"In the end, more than they wanted freedom, they wanted security. They wanted a comfortable life, and they lost it all -- security, comfort, and freedom. When ... the freedom they wished for was freedom from responsibility, then Athens ceased to be free."

Obama clapped only once....at the end.

That was absolutely amazing! And to have BO sitting right there and just taking it, was inspiring. You could see there was a controlled disappointment under those words. He even moved away from BO as soon as he was done. That took courage and great intelligence.

Thanks for posting this! I was only able to watch half of it before it froze. I'm going to download it and repost it just in case the Powers That (Shouldn't) Be try to nix it from the interwebs. Watching Lord King Almighty Savior Obama squirm while this much truth is being laid out RIGHT IN HIS FACE is PRICELESS!

The annoyed look on Obama's face...

is just PRICELESS!


I cross linked that one.

With comments:

Liberty is not the order to obey without question, as in "One Nation" so beware of that message if that is what you hear. A Federal government is a voluntary one, not an involuntary one - please understand that important distinction. "Indivisible" means something, so what does it mean, exactly, and if it means obey without question, then that is not Liberty, if it means no one in their right mind, other than criminals, would divide honest people who combine their defensive power into an indivisible defensive power, then that is the opposite thing.

"When you educate a man...

you liberate a man."

Truer words were never spoken. As a whole, this Country needs more education on where we get our information. With the Daily Paul in mind, there are few exceptions.

Lima-1, out.

If you don't know your rights, you don't have any.

Still listening...

"What's one thing they teach you in law school? To win. [...]We have Democrats trying to win and we have Republicans trying to win. We need to stop that and solve problems."

This guy is on the money. Anyone find his speech from 16 years ago? I'd like to hear that one as well.

Lima-1, out.

If you don't know your rights, you don't have any.

My internet service

won't allow me to watch videos but I do encourage reading this guy's biography.

"One of the things that really has inspired me and pushed me on is learning about the human brain and recognizing the incredible potential that lies there—but also recognizing how few people use it."

Some very good inspiring points made by Dr. B Carson, BUT

the most telling aspect of this video (to me) is how *KING Obama* smugly sat there, making sure that he is ABOVE clapping for any of the commonsensical statements made by Carson.

(BTW, Dr.Carson, a pediatric neurosurgeon at Johns Hopkins Hosp, is for Health Savings Account, instead of a system of wastefully "sending money to bureaucracy": yup he said that right into King Obm's face ; )

Just watched it.

That 1812 story... How many piles of noble-hearted soldiers have been duped into dying for a swatch of cloth, so that some rich tuckfard can get richer?

Love or fear? Choose again with every breath.

Thats why he said

When you educate a man you liberate him
