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).

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.

Politico: Rand Paul ahead in New Hampshire

Rand ahead in New Hampshire.

Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) is leading the pack of potential Republican presidential contenders, but the GOP race is wide open according to a new poll.

In a CNN/ORC poll released on Monday, 15 percent of those polled said that they would most likely support Paul from a long list of contenders. Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush and Rep. Paul Ryan (Wis.) follow with 10 percent, followed by New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie and Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee with support falling at 9 percent.

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!

If Assad dares to defend his country from illegal American airstrikes...America will bomb him for that too!

This kind of rationale reminds me of all the people here in Amerika being arrested for resisting arrest. Assad must sit by and allow the US Air Force (and drones) to bomb his nation...or else Amerika will double down and bring MORE death and destruction to Syria. Kind of like a parent telling some child to "stop that crying or I will really give you something to cry about". Unflippingbelievable!

Wash Post Page One Monday: Rand Paul Distancing Himself From Libertarian, Tea Party Past... Developing...

On the front page of Drudge now.

By David A. Fahrenthold | September 14, 2014

Sen. Rand Paul wanted to eliminate aid to Israel. Now he doesn’t. He wanted to scrap the Medicare system. Now he’s not sure.

He didn’t like the idea of a border fence — it was expensive, and it reminded him of the Berlin Wall. Now he wants two fences, one behind the other.

And what about same-sex marriage? Paul’s position — such marriages are morally wrong, but Republicans should stop obsessing about them — seems so muddled that an Iowa pastor recently confronted him in frustration.

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.

How Police Officers’ Military Uniforms Affect Their Mental State

New scientific research suggests the effect of militarized dress on cops is more profound than imagined. Here's why

by Geordie McRuer

In the weeks since Michael Brown, an unarmed 18-year-old, was shot dead by a police officer in Ferguson, Missouri, protesters have faced down a police force so militarized that it has made international headlines. Images coming out of Ferguson show police stationed atop military-style vehicles with assault rifles aimed at civilians. Journalists have been arrested while doing their job. Police have used tear gas, rubber bullets, wooden bullets, flash bombs, sound bombs and smoke bombs on unarmed civilians.

We entrust police offices with enormous power. Accordingly, we expect them to show more restraint, patience and care than other citizens. The images coming out of Ferguson depict failure on each front.

Part of the problem may be the way the police are dressed. As the saying goes, “the clothes make the man.” In Ferguson, the men who work as police dress like soldiers. Dressing police in camouflage is certainly ridiculous (John Oliver recently quipped, “If they want to blend in with their surroundings, they should be dressed like a dollar store”), but recent psychological research now indicates that the effect of militarized dress may be much more insidious.
