The Last Hour
Ed Rombach is a friend, a member of 2008 Massachusetts Ron Paul delegation to the RNC, as well as a member here at the Daily Paul. I got an email yesterday from our mutual friend Jon that his daughter was involved in a horrific car accident. This is the report from Ed.
On November 22, 1963 our entire country was assassinated when JFK was killed in a coup and overthrow of our Nation's highest office.
The people didn't want LBJ, we wanted JFK, but we got Johnson and WAR instead of Kennedy and PEACE and wasn't that just grand?
On April 4th, 1968 the soul of our country was assassinated when Martin Luther King was killed in Memphis by a "lone assassin", a two-bit bum, who then traversed the globe on the run. We, the people of ALL colors didn't want Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton to be our spiritual guides, we wanted Martin Luther King but we got the charlatans, instead. These charlatans have become "rich" in the trappings of earthly treasures but sorely lack the richness of God.
On June 5th, 1968 our last, great hope, Bobby Kennedy was assassinated as he sat on the cusp of being elected by the people to be our next President.
"The United States and Cuba will start talks on normalizing full diplomatic relations, marking the most significant shift in U.S. policy toward the communist island in decades, American officials said Wednesday. The announcement comes amid a series of new confidence-building measures between the longtime foes, including the release of American Alan Gross and the freeing of three Cubans jailed in the U.S."
This is my commitment for 2015.
Séamusín's brother-in-law just passed away suddenly. I already knew of another here who had someone important suddenly pass away. From the comments in Séamusín's thread, a number of Daily Paulers have had the same thing happen.
So when Stacy arrived to find 47-year-old Helen Johnson stealing eggs to feed her two daughters, her niece, and two young grand-kids, he knew this incident was different. Johnson explained to Stacy that her family hadn’t eaten since Thursday. So instead of making an arrest, the officer, 23, bought Johnson a carton of eggs. “When she mentioned the kids and said they were hungry, that’s when I knew I wanted to buy the eggs,” Stacy says. “No matter what financial situation kids are in, it’s not their fault they’re hungry.”
A friend of mine that is a police officer locally brought it to my attention that they watched a training film. He did not know where the video came from, but it was pointed directly as those that hold the Constitution as the supreme law of the land. Here is the video that was shown to represent "all" Constitutionalists.
I stumbled into this place but I will most certainly not stumble out. It’s all too much anymore. Sometimes I feel the dire need for a place to call my own; a place of brutal and empowering truth; a place where [we] are broken completely free of the pessimistic and languishing disingenuousness of those who have assumed lordship and autocracy over us. This place has given me so much of that, yet now I’m finding such brutal and empowering truth to be amiss here (this is just my interpretation and not meant to be contentious).

Rand Paul insulted the business lobby in June; he starred in their ads in October. Here's how it all went down.
The Courtship: How Rand Paul Became a Chamber Republican
National Journal | December 15, 2014
Rand Paul had screwed up, and he knew it.
It was June and the Kentucky senator was in Texas speaking to a group of tea-party activists when he got loose with his words. "Chamber of Commerce is fine, I was a member of the Chamber of Commerce," Paul told the state's Republican Liberty Caucus. "But a Chamber of Commerce Republican is not going to win a national election."
It was a bold statement for a Republican plotting his own path to presidency. Too bold, he and his advisers realized almost immediately. While Paul has nurtured an iconoclastic libertarian image—stomping across Washington in cowboy boots and jeans, casting himself as a rare Republican willing to go to Berkeley, say, or reach out to black voters—he has also methodically courted the power class here in Washington.

Jeremy Howard: The wonderful and terrifying implications of computers that can learn
TED | Published on Dec 16, 2014
What happens when we teach a computer how to learn? Technologist Jeremy Howard shares some surprising new developments in the fast-moving field of deep learning, a technique that can give computers the ability to learn Chinese, or to recognize objects in photos, or to help think through a medical diagnosis. (One deep learning tool, after watching hours of YouTube, taught itself the concept of “cats.”) Get caught up on a field that will change the way the computers around you behave … sooner than you probably think.
