It's Our Currency And Our Problem
Most Americans don't understand that gold is not an investment- it is an asset or an insurance policy.
Gold is money.
A country's currency not backed by gold is only as good as the soundness of its monetary and fiscal policy.
Recently there has been a lot of debate about what Dailypaul is. Is it another news aggregation site like Drudge? Does it serve a purpose? Is there any unified libertarian movement here? It is fun to watch users give ceremonial goodbyes and a rant or diatribe as to why they are leaving. I'm not sure why there are these dramatic Dailypaul exits but it is charming and characteristic that as people that support Ron Paul it appears we rarely leave quietly without some burst of self expression.
A Mother’s Letter: “Who Gave the Order to Kill my Children?”
Natalia, the mother of the murdered Christina, wrote a letter to the mother of Poroshenko’s children, asking: “Who gave the order to kill my children?”
I met Natalia, whose daughter and granddaughter were killed in the Grad shelling of Gorlovka by the Ukrainian troops, at the railway station in Kiev. In the eyes of the beautiful and once happy woman today there is deep pain, sadness and emptiness.
The two greatest upward price forces known to man, an asset bubble and a genuine commodity shortage, appear set to combine in silver. Either one, alone, would have a profound impact on the price, but the combination seems both inevitable and almost impossible to contemplate in terms of how high the price of silver could be driven. And it’s hard to see how intense investment buying wouldn’t trip off industrial user attempted inventory stockpiling or vice versa; it doesn’t matter which comes first.
We finally got a swarm of bees this spring! I put the lovely Warre hive boxes that hawkiye made to use at last! When the time came to add a box, I was living on the farm in the RV, the only bee book I had was "Beekeeping For Dummies" (a much loved and used gift!) and I just flipped to the page about adding a box. I went out and put the empty box on top of the full one. OK, my husband put it on top, but I was the one who said to do it. It had only been there a few days before I remembered that is one of the differences with Warre boxes, and we went to move it. Too late.

Former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum on Thursday sharply criticized fellow Republican Rand Paul, accusing him of advocating a foreign policy similar to “Obama’s failed isolationism.”
Here is his beautiful obituary:
He was one awesome dude and I loved him dearly. Ed was a master story teller like none other. He was a true patriot and was a Ron Paul/ Larry MacDonald supporter. Goodbye Ed....
Edward Joseph Bomer Jr., age 79 of Nashville, passed away Friday, August 22 2014 at Eaton Community Palliative Care in Charlotte.
Edward was born on March 24,1935 in Detroit, Michigan the son of Edward J. and Irene (Murzin) Bomer Sr. He attended Chadsey High School in Detroit, graduating in 1953. Ed married Claire E. McAfee on August 1, 1953. He worked for Humphrey Products, retiring on January 23, 2008.
He Supports All The Troops
He supports all the troops,
He's glad to see them go,
He fills them with patriotic fervor,
And sets their hearts aglow.
He conjures up a marching band,
He makes them all feel proud,
He tells them to take a stand,
And say the pledge aloud.
He tells them of the enemies,
Those filthy, evil foes,
Those foreign devils must be stopped,
And so his story goes.
Then they go in their prime,
To kill and fight and die,
Cut down before their time,
While loved ones wonder why.
His tales of glory,
Are just a story,
From forth his fetid breath,
They lead to sorrow,
And no tomorrow,
Just endless, dreaded death.

“Why is it so important to return to gold-dollar convertibility now?” his letter asked the unsuspecting Republican voters of New Jersey. “Things have gone too far for limited half measures to work” [overemphasis in the original]. A return to the gold standard, he concedes, would of course result in higher interest rates, as the dollar sought its own level of value without direction from the Fed.
A jury returned a verdict of not guilty today for a Texas father accused of the shooting death of a drunk driver who killed his two sons.
David Barajas was accused of fatally shooting 20-year-old Jose Banda in December 2012 after Banda plowed into a vehicle that Barajas and his two sons had been pushing on a rural road in Alvin, about 30 miles southeast of Houston.
The Barajas family broke into tears in the courtroom today while Jose Banda's family sat in stunned belief.
Left-leaning American politicos often complain about the political activities of the “evil” Koch brothers. They argue that George and David Koch use their disproportionate wealth to bend the American political system to suit their will. However, mainstream media outlets rarely point out the types of causes that the duo advocate for with their hard-earned wealth.

Sedentary behaviors are classified as those that involve sitting for extended periods of time with little movement and low energy output. In day-to-day life, many people spend a lot of time sitting. Many office jobs require sitting all day at a desk, and some people spend hours a day in the car while commuting. After a long day, it is not uncommon to sit down to read, watch TV, or chat with friends. Even the hours eating around a dining room table are spent sitting. In fact, one survey estimates that children and adults in the United States spend 55 percent of their waking hours in sedentary activities.
While it may not be surprising that sitting down is not the healthiest activity you can do, it may be shocking to hear that the dangers of sitting too long could actually shorten your life expectancy.
Even people who exercise regularly can be affected by sedentary behavior. It is important to realize that being physically active does not necessarily mean that you cannot be at risk for excessive sedentary behavior. In fact, you can be both a physically active person and a sedentary person at the same time. For example, perhaps you spend eight hours a day sitting at a desk for work. Although you may go on a run when you get home after work, the eight hours you spend sitting each day are not cancelled out by the fact that you exercise daily.
I had a nice long talk with Ernie Hancock of Freedom's Phoenix today, and he encouraged me to watch ‘Captain America: The Winter Soldier.’ He said, "you’ll understand why when you see it."
I searched the DP for any discussion and turned up one post, but no discussion
When Ernie says something I take note. He said, "It is all about the database and the metadata, and this is where we are heading."
Anyone here seen it? If so, please let us know what you think.

As the murderous, terrorist Islamic State continues to threaten Iraq, the region and potentially the United States, it is vitally important that we examine how this problem arose. Any actions we take today must be informed by what we've already done in the past, and how effective our actions have been.
Shooting first and asking questions later has never been a good foreign policy. The past year has been a perfect example.
