Hola my Daily Paul friends.

Ok.... couldn't help but chuckle a little; sounds like South Africa is such a great place after Mandela took over. lol
JOHANNESBURG — The sign-language interpreter on stage at Nelson Mandela’s globally broadcast memorial service was a faker who was just waving his arms around meaninglessly, advocates for the deaf said Wednesday.

After reading our story yesterday, many of you commented that you would like to hear the little girl’s side of the story.
Abraham Lincoln was a saint. Andrew Jackson was purely awesome because he ended the first central bank. Murray Rothbard was never in error. Ludwig von Mises was absolutely correct on all accounts. JFK should be exalted. etc etc etc etc etc...
None of the above folks were perfect. Here, most are familiar with the bad side of Lincoln; however, we rarely consider that Andrew Jackson presided over the Trail of Tears. The lyrics of a song by the Native American band Corporate Avenger go:
"If Hitler was on the twenty-dollar bill, how would the Jews feel?"
By selectively ignoring either the good or the bad of historic figures, we endorse the practice of historical revision. It is important that people embrace the realization that no one person is purely good or evil. Too often, people are swayed by one side of the story or the other and never consider that famous (or infamous) people were - just that - people. Everyone is flawed.
"The Florida appeals court ruling that the University of North Florida was violating state law when it prohibited a woman from storing a gun in her vehicle while she attended class will spill over to cities and counties statewide, an attorney said Wednesday.
And it’s one of many nationwide where anti-gun activists are trying to do at the local level what they can’t do in the statehouse – restrict Second Amendment rights."
