In the spirit of Michael's recent post and the spirit of the season, I wanted to offer my sincere apologies for anyone who I have been overly insensitive, argumentative or inconsiderate toward. Its so easy online to allow disagreements to become personal battles of wit, ego and insults. While its fun and often fair game, sometimes it can go overboard and someone should be the bigger person even if it is fair game. When taken too far, it is unbecoming of all of us as people, not merely as members of a political community or a specific ideology.
Article V Convention Scam - John Birch Society says it Well;
And warns us of those (in this case, Mark Levin) preaching the Constitution on one hand, while hacking at the Constitutions roots with the other.

Educate Yourself. Educate Others.
The new year is fast approaching, which means that it is time for both reassessments and future planning.
What will you choose? What will you decide? Are you aware that there is a tremendous fundamental difference between these two actions?
Most people use these words interchangeably, but let’s look at them more carefully.
The word decide shares the root -cide with a number of other words: Suicide, fratricide, genocide, pesticide, hosticide (to kill an enemy), ursicide (to kill a bear). There are hundreds of such words, but you get the picture.
To -cide means to kill. When you de-cide something, you look at your options, then murder them off one by one until the last one remains and you say, “This is it! This is the one! I’ve de-cided.”
The whole process is entirely rational. Each murder is perpetrated cooly, based on evidence that you use as justification for your de-cision. Because the evidence is the reason, there is no personal responsibility. The cause is clear. You didn’t have to do anything. It is the evidence that led you to all the murders, your singular rational conclusion, your final de-cision.
A choice, on the other hand, is different.
There's this story* about Steve Jobs, when he came back to Apple. The company was on the verge of failure - too many products, not enough customers, no focus. No one expected the company to survive. Apple was two months from bankruptcy when he returned in ’97.
Jobs scaled everything back - cut divisions, cut product lines, reorganized everything, got a big investor (Microsoft) to help shore up finances. Then, he waited.
"Meanwhile, Ron Paul, a frequent critic of the president, did praise President Barack Obama for his diplomatic work on Iran and expressed concern that Congress could get in his way.
“I think under the circumstances it’s a great breakthrough. And during the campaign you heard me say it very often, we ought to do more diplomacy and less shooting from the hip,” Paul said.
BREAKING: South Carolina Declares War On Obamacare, Will Vote To Ban State Involvement In Implementation
An EPIC 10th Amendment showdown is quickly boiling as South Carolina government is fast-tracking legislation that blocks Obamacare at the state level.
Daily Caller has the specifics.
“It will essentially have five components to it, all of which in my judgment are legal, effective, and within the state’s power to do,” Davis, a Republican from Beaufort, said in an interview.
I was walking home one evening and came upon a clearly depressed man standing at the edge of a bridge, looking like he was about to jump. I called out to him to wait, and ran over to see what was the matter.
"It's this country," he lamented. "It's falling into ruin and there's nothing I can do about it. The election was the last straw. I don't want to live on this planet anymore."
"Well cheer up," I said. "We're all in this together. Say, are you a conservative, or a libertarian?"
"A libertarian," he said.
I have been waiting for this for a long time. This channel is absolutely worth the small price it costs me.
what I really want to see is a 24/7 tv channel that airs Ron Paul Channel episodes, Truth in Media episodes, Stefan molyneux, Peter Schiff, Tom woods, etc...
Much like DP Radio. Hey Zak Carter, if you're out there, what ever happened to the tv channel that you were supposed to be working towards?
Snowden: Boom! NSA Eats Google Cookies
BY ASHKAN SOLTANI, ANDREA PETERSON, AND BARTON GELLMAN
The National Security Agency is secretly piggybacking on the tools that enable Internet advertisers to track consumers, using "cookies" and location data to pinpoint targets for government hacking and to bolster surveillance.
A 12 year old Canadian boy passed away from a severe asthma attack, which could have been avoided if the inhaler his doctor prescribed had been on hand, instead of in the Principal's office under lock and key.
Such a tragedy could have also been avoided if the school hadn't confiscated all of his spare inhalers.
