Sitting at an internet cafe in Santiago, Chile

You never know where life will take you. I constantly keep making shop owners laugh with my broken Spanish. It is humbling to experience what many foreigners go through in America every day. I will be documenting my trip and I will share at a later time.

Peace and Love,

Cenk Uygur Would ‘Lay Money on Rand Paul Being the Next President’

by Josh Feldman
September 15th, 2014


http://youtu.be/iqAFjTLDjx0

The Young Turks’ Cenk Uygur rarely has kind words for Republicans, but on Monday he said he would be willing to bet money that Rand Paul would beat Hillary Clinton and win the presidency in 2016.

Uygur credited Paul as a “voice of reason” on fighting ISIS, in contrast to Clinton’s hawkishness. He agreed that “our invasion of Iraq in the first place and all of the other bombings we’ve done in the Middle East… has in fact led to the rise of ISIS.”

The Four Horsemen

The Four Horsemen

One, two, three, four,
Soldiers marching off to war,
Oblivious of the cost,
Of the on-going holocaust,
Blindly following the hellish lead,
Of each one on his somber steed,
Unthinkingly obeying the lying lips,
Of the four horsemen of the apocalypse.

Bush, Clinton, Bush, Obama,
Perpetuating the death and drama,
Speaking of weapons not there,
Creating images of Armageddon to scare,
We're in Iraq! There's no turning Back!
Kill those backward people!
Drop those bombs, my Sheeple!
You'll spread freedom, we promise you this!
So say the four lying horsemen of the apocalypse.

Don't listen to those widow makers,
Those presidential undertakers,
Spread the word far and wide,
Stop this maddening genocide,
Don't believe the lying lips,
Of the four horsemen of Iraq's apocalypse.

What is your favorite quote?

Over the years on the Daily Paul I saw many cool "what is your favorite song" posts.
How about favorite educational quotes?

Today while searching for some material to post on Twitter I came across this great quote that moved me so much when I was growing up as a teen in at the time Communist Poland:

"In a time of universal deceit - telling the truth is a revolutionary act."
- George Orwell

So what is your favorite quote/s?

Thanks!

Larry Kudlow Craps The Bed...

I try to listen (or at least I did) to Larry Kudlow's weekly radio show.

Kudlow usually espouses the principles of free market capitalism.

But this past weekend he completely crapped the bed on his show.

All he could talk about was how we should send in our military over there to fight the ISIS threat which he claims "will be coming here next."

He sounded like a posterboy for the GOP war-mongers.

The 2nd thing he said which pissed me off was that he slammed gold and goldbugs (like us I suppose).

Ron Paul's Texas Straight Talk 9/15/14: Will The Swiss Vote to Get Their Gold Back?

Written By Ron Paul
Sunday, September 14, 2014

On November 30th, voters in Switzerland will head to the polls to vote in a referendum on gold. On the ballot is a measure to prohibit the Swiss National Bank (SNB) from further gold sales, to repatriate Swiss-owned gold to Switzerland, and to mandate that gold make up at least 20 percent of the SNB's assets. Arising from popular sentiment similar to movements in the United States, Germany, and the Netherlands, this referendum is an attempt to bring more oversight and accountability to the SNB, Switzerland's central bank.

The Swiss referendum is driven by an undercurrent of dissatisfaction with the conduct not only of Swiss monetary policy, but also of Swiss banking policy. Switzerland may be a small nation, but it is a nation proud of its independence and its history of standing up to tyranny. The famous legend of William Tell embodies the essence of the Swiss national character. But no tyrannical regime in history has bullied Switzerland as much as the United States government has in recent years.

The Swiss tradition of bank secrecy is legendary. The reality, however, is that Swiss bank secrecy is dead. Countries such as the United States have been unwilling to keep government spending in check, but they are running out of ways to fund that spending. Further taxation of their populations is politically difficult, massive issuance of government debt has saturated bond markets, and so the easy target is smaller countries such as Switzerland which have gained the reputation of being “tax havens.” Remember that tax haven is just a term for a country that allows people to keep more of their own money than the US or EU does, and doesn't attempt to plunder either its citizens or its foreign account-holders. But the past several years have seen a concerted attempt by the US and EU to crack down on these smaller countries, using their enormous financial clout to compel them to hand over account details so that they can extract more tax revenue.

Ukraine war - terrific report

Special correspondents Alexander Kots and Dmitry Steshin drove through the villages and the territories liberated from the National Guard and the Ukrainian Army, alongside the “Trophy Group”, observing how the Militia obtains their weapons.

Grown-up “toys” for children

“Oi, brats, over here! Turn out the backpacks,” the soldier from the Oplot Battalion calls to a group of teenagers, with a commanding voice. The grimy boys stop digging around the ex-field camp of the Ukrainian Army, near the village of Kuteynikovo, and shuffle over.

Should we all take a little lithium?

Here is a snippet:

"Trying to make sense of their results, the authors of the Japanese study speculated that lithium exposure, even in these tiny amounts, might actually be neuroprotective or even enhance the growth of neurons. Other studies have supported their speculation; lithium appears to promote the health, growth and resilience of neurons, reducing stress-induced damage.
