Practice Patience and Understanding: You never know who you are about to reach.

Who I was 25 years ago, does not resemble who I am today. I used to be a liberal. I voted twice for Bill Clinton, a thought that makes me cringe now. I basically believed whatever the news told me. Oklahoma City Bombing, the benevolence of the United Nations, and the need for health care reform. I basically believed whatever history or science class in college taught me. I was proud to be an atheist and heavily relied on science to explain my existence. I was confident that my views were the right views and everyone else was either misguided, selfish, or stupid.

What can I say? I watched a lot of TV.

When 2007 had come along, I had grown slightly more skeptical of those in Washington. However, I went to bat for Hillary, convinced that she was going to bring some sanity back in our Country. Hillary and sanity don't even belong in the same sentence.

Warning lights began to flash for me when the media began to actively protect and make excuses for Obama. They propped him up beyond all reason. The Democratic caucuses and eventual convention were full of corruption. This was a disease that I thought only Republicans were riddled with.

I vowed never to support Obama. Of course then I was called a racist.

Video: Florida Highway Patrol Officer Tasers Old Man With His Hands in the Air

An FHP officer tugs on the door handle of the minivan, but it doesn’t open. Finally, it swings wide and an old man with thinning hair and glasses nervously sticks his hands in the air.

“Oh, God,” the woman watching says. “He’s just an old man!”

One officer spins the old man — who appears to be holding a black cell phone — and shouts, “On the ground!”

The other officer, in an FHP hat, shouts either “Let him go!” or “Let it go!” and then deploys his Taser on the man.

Noam Chomsky's Take on 'American Sniper'


http://youtu.be/5X30Gkp9FVs

During a public conversation prompted by the beginning of the Tsarnaev trial in Boston, Noam Chomsky discussed the larger issue of society's growing tolerance for violence and willingness to overlook questionable acts carried out by government agencies. He refers to a review of the 2014 film, American Sniper as a way into the conversation about what we define as terror, when we feel justified in protecting ourselves and what the fallout is for taking violent action.

Hosted at The Lilypad in Cambridge, MA by The Baffler Magazine, featuring the ACLU's Kade Crockford and linguist Noam Chomsky.

China has announced new world currency

When I arrived to Bangkok the other day, coming down the motorway from the airport I saw a huge billboard—and it floored me.

The billboard was from the Bank of China. It said: “RMB: New Choice; The World Currency”

Given that the Bank of China is more than 70% owned by the government of the People’s Republic of China, I find this very significant.

Get My Flag OFF That AIPAC Stage With The Israeli Flag and the U.N. Ambassador

Here is how how the stage looked at the recent AIPAC meeting.

They are using imagery to literally merge the flags of the U.S. and Israel together into one flag.

In the photo link below it shows the Anti-American U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Samantha Power giving an Anti-American sovereignty speech to an Israeli-controlled, America-hating audience.

Images like this are PROOF that we have LOST OUR SOVEREIGNTY to foreign states like Israel and to International Organizations like the U.N.

Private police carry guns and make arrests, and their ranks are swelling

By Justin Jouvenal | February 28

Michael Youlen stopped a driver in a Manassas apartment complex on a recent night and wrote the man a ticket for driving on a suspended license. With a badge on his chest and a gun on his hip, Youlen gave the driver a stern warning to stay off the road.

The stop was routine police work, except for one fact: Youlen is not a Manassas officer. The citation came courtesy of the private force he created that, until recently, he called the “Manassas Junction Police Department.”

He is its chief and sole officer.

He is a force of one.

CERN Physicist: "We Have No F*ing Idea What We’re Doing"

[Note: There are times when the only way to tell the truth is through comedy and satire. And when our priesthoods of power lack a sense of humor, it may be the only way to keep your job and more importantly your life (Recall both Galileo and Bruno used satire to float ideas). These idiots are playing with fire and don’t give a damn, and the notion that they've let their fantasies replace rational thinking resonates with most people. Bottom line: Just because an idea is a presented as satire doesn’t mean it is anything less true.]
