"Memo to Cable News: Learn the Difference Between ‘Isolationism’ and ‘Non-Interventionism’"
Mediaite's Andrew Kirell took Fox News anchor Gregg Jarrett (and some MSNBC and CNN anchors) to task for REFUSING to learn the difference between "isolationism" and "non-interventionism," while trying to use the former title to smear/belittle Ron and Rand Paul.
Question in Textbook:
Suppose that in the year 2029, the United States should fall into an economic depression worse than that which begain in 1929. If an eloquent political leader should demand the abolition of Congress, the nationalization of the stock market and major industries, and equal distribution of the national income, would you support him and his proposed changes? Why or why not?

Sen. Rand Paul is taking his anti-surveillance message on the road—and into the liberal lion's den of Berkeley.
Paul, the Kentucky Republican widely seen as laying the groundwork for a 2016 presidential run, will speak at the famously liberal university next week at an event on privacy, according to a Paul aide.
My grandson is 17 - a good kid, lives with his dad (my daughter is his step-mom). He's been heavy on my mind all weekend in a "something's off" way, so when my daughter called last night I asked if something was going on with him.
She said yeah he's had a rough weekend. His mom's birthday is coming up and he bought her a toaster for a gift because her old one died. His school does random locker searches and found the receipt for the toaster among his things. They called my son in law to come to the school so they could do a thorough search of my grandson, his locker and his car.
It seems a toaster can be used to dry marijuana. Kids these days, eh? *eyeroll*

This is the evidence of what consistent pressure of showing up at GOP events, entering the delegate cycle, and becoming central committee members has done to the party.
The CPAC straw poll analysis shows foundational moves in attitude.
What do you think of this, Daily Paul?
Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) says he isn't worried about tea party-backed candidates challenging GOP incumbents in this year's midterm elections.
"I think we are going to crush them everywhere," McConnell told the New York Times in an interview published Saturday. "I don't think they are going to have a single nominee anywhere in the country."
"You May think I'm talking about electing Republicans. I'm not. I'm talking about electing lovers of Liberty."

If the U.S. economy is getting better, then why are major retail chains closing thousands of stores?
If we truly are in an "economic recovery", then why do sales figures continue to go down for large retailers all over the country?
Without a doubt, the rise of Internet retailing giants such as Amazon.com have had a huge impact. Today, there are millions of Americans that actually prefer to shop online. Personally, when I published my novel I made it solely available on Amazon. But Internet shopping alone does not account for the great retail apocalypse that we are witnessing. In fact, some retail experts estimate that the Internet has accounted for only about 20 percent of the decline that we are seeing.
Most of the rest of it can be accounted for by the slow, steady death of the middle class U.S. consumer.
As told in the parable of the hot dog wars (4 minutes).
During the scene of big pro-Russian demonstrations last week, 'unidentified armed men' (U.S. mercenaries) were seen and filmed on the streets. A Russian Diplomat claimed some 300 hired guns had arrived in the eastern Ukraine 'flashpoint' city.
