While America Looks The Other Way: Obama secretly extends US combat operation in Afghanistan

November 22, 2014

President Barack Obama has secretly signed an order that expands the United States’ direct combat role in Afghanistan throughout 2015, the New York Times reported.

Signed over the last few weeks, the secret order permits American forces to continue to battle the Taliban and other militants that pose a threat to either the Afghan government or US personnel. According to the Times, US jets, bombers, and drones will be able to aid ground troops – be they Afghan or US forces – in whatever mission they undertake.

The Ron Paul Sticker Still Works

I live in New Jersey, but travel a lot because I work in the music business. My car still has the Ron Paul Revolution bumper sticker in the back. I still have people approach me and some times it gives me time to open some minds in the process.

I recently went back to college to get my masters degree. I always drive my car to the nearby campus where tons of students go to.

I literally had a ton impacts with the bumper sticker this week.

From the gridiron field to the potato farm: NFL player quits to take up farming

Why a star football player traded NFL career for a tractor
Steve Hartman, CBS NEWS, November 14, 2014

LOUISBURG, N.C. - At one point number 60, Jason Brown, was one of the best centers in the NFL. At one point he had a five-year, $37 million contract with the St. Louis Rams. And at one point he decided it was all meaningless - and just walked away from football.

"My agent told me, 'You're making the biggest mistake of your life,'" said Brown. "And I looked right back at him and I said, 'No I'm not. No I'm not.'"

So what could possibly trump the NFL?

You wouldn't believe. Jason Brown quit football to be a plain, old farmer -- even though he'd never farmed a day a in his life. Asked how he learned to even know what to do, Brown said:

"Get on the Internet. Watch Youtube videos."

New kind of Marriage, between two heterosexual men or two heterosexual women.

The latest episodes of "Two and a half men" are addressing an issue of two heterosexual men wishing to adopt a child, but must prove to a social worker that their marriage is truly a homosexual relationship. The current fight to make legal, by the state, the marriage between two homosexual men or two homosexual women has gotten a lot of attention. However, what about legal marriages between two heterosexual men or two heterosexual women? There are many heterosexual men or women that live together for many reasons. Why must a sexual relationship be required for marriage? Should two heterosexual men wishing to get married in order to adopt a little boy or girl be legal? I would like to read debate on this issue.

Rapper facing life in prison for "violent" album cover art

Like countless artists before him, San Diego-based rapper Brandon Duncan's new album features a picture of a gun and bullets on its front cover. However Duncan, who raps under the name Tiny Doo, could be the first artist to go to jail for his choice of album art.

Duncan faces 25-years-to-life on gang conspiracy charges brought against him this week, according to the Los Angeles Times. Prosecutors will reportedly look to prove that the album art "willfully promotes, furthers, or assists in any felonious criminal conduct by members of that gang."

"That gang" refers to the San Diego Lincoln Park gang, of which Duncan is a member, according to San Diego police. According to the Times, at least 15 Lincoln Park gang members have been charged in a recent string of shootings in the city.

Jimmy Carter: 'Being Called Worst President Is a Compliment Coming from Warmonger McCain'


http://youtu.be/8OYU0raRvJA

RONAN FARROW, MSNBC: John McCain reaching for the worst possible insult for President Obama earlier this year said this: "I have never seen anything like this in my life. I thought Jimmy Carter was bad, but he pales in comparison to this president in my opinion." The serious question is, what does is it feel like, and what is your response to, these moments of being used as an insult? Your legacy being used as an insult.

PRESIDENT JIMMY CARTER: That's a compliment to come from a war monger... I was lucky enough when I was president to keep our country at peace, and provide peace for others. I was lucky enough to go through my four years, we never shot a bullet or dropped a bomb or fired a missile.

This Is Why Rand Paul Is Hillary Clinton's Worst Nightmare

As Hillary Clinton starts to ponder the curtains she wants to hang in the Oval Office, there is only one person who can realistically stand in her way: Rand Paul.

Readers of this site will be well aware that I spend very little time focusing on Presidential politics. There are many reasons for this, but more than anything else, I believe there are two key components to genuine cultural change, and none of them have to do with electing a savior. These are:
