So what else newbies (and oldies)?Submitted by Michael Nystrom on Sun, 08/10/2014 - 02:10
You supported Ron Paul, you're happy that the Ark is open, and accepting new passengers.
My intention with all this is that The Ark is accepting kind and gentle people. We get enough of the mean and aggressive ones on "Crossfire," CNN, Fox News, MSNBC, Breitbart, etc. That whole rest of the sensationalist BS MSM mind control pits.
I'm looking for thoughtful people. Part of the disappointment of the Daily Paul for me is that sometimes it just feels like an MSM repeater. And that falls far, far short of the potential of the internet. .
The same year that I went to Egypt (1998), I went to Norway, to visit relatives. I flew there from Berlin, where I was staying with my German girlfriend, Petra.
I spent some time in Trondheim, visited my cousins there. Got a hero's welcome, really. They were kind, gentle people who wanted to welcome their exotic half Japanese, American relative to Norway. It was nice.
But after Trondheim, I made my way to an island, whose name I have by now forgot. It was small island, population 3,000 max. And it was otherwise pristine. And I mean pristine. Paved roads, and that was about it. Everything else left to nature.
Kristen picked me up at the dock. We drove, though that windswept, deserted country island. The air on that island was so pristine, that I could actually smell the different components of an automobile's while simply standing beside it. I could smell the beast!
When we arrive at her home, I get out of the car. We go inside, and I sit down on the couch, in a strange home that I'd never been to, in a foreign country I'd also never been to, that is on the other side of the world from home. It is the most random place in the world.
Kristen pulls out a photo album, opens it up an low and behold! There is a picture of me in it. Some random shot at our old, old house. I'm totally little.
It was the weirdest sensation in the world. There are no words to describe that sensation, but I still remember it. It was like a rubber band. That is the best I can say. Try to imagine what a trip that was.
That is the same kind of feeling I get when I hear people thanking me for opening up the Ark. It is a weird feeling that I don't know what to do with. It is weird.
So what else? You supported Ron Paul, you're happy that the Ark is open. What else?
Are you guys here to support Rand? I know some people are. My problem is that I'm not interested in seeing a rerun. I saw a rerun in 2012 of 2008. There was too much emotion, that clouded rationality. I'm not interested in re experiencing that. I'd like to watch, but I want interesting seats. "Rah rah Rand" is not an interesting seat for me.
Has Rand said anything about Obama bombing Iraq? I don't even have to check to know what Ron thinks of that.
What other kinds of things are you into? Gardening? Cars? Sports?
It used to didn't be in the past, but it is okay to be a whole person around here now.
