The Last Hour
In my humble opinion, the most beautiful side of promoting liberty is in the medium of innovation. By coming up with effective ways to compete with State functions, the populace can shrink the government without having to rely on the promises of politicians - the trustworthy bunch they are.

On Tuesday, Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) released a proposal for a wide-ranging criminal justice reform bill — authored with Senator Cory Booker (D-NJ). The response focused as much on the coauthors as it did on the bill, with commentators marveling at the bipartisan "bromance" between the two men.
GOP Congressman: ‘We Just Filed a Resolution Directing the Sergeant-at-Arms to Arrest Lois Lerner for Contempt’Submitted by Barracuda_Trader on Thu, 07/10/2014 - 19:40
Rep. Steve Stockman (R-Texas) announced on Thursday that he has filed a resolution directing the House sergeant-at-arms to “arrest Lois Lerner for contempt of Congress” over the IRS targeting scandal.
Stockman said in a statement that asking the U.S. Department of Justice to prosecute Lerner for “admittedly illegal activity” is a “joke.” Instead, the Republican said it is up to the U.S. House to “uphold the rule of law and hold accountable those who illegally targeted American citizens for simply having different ideas than the President.”
I came across this on Fox news this morning. I decided to post it because it is a bit concerning.
Not because they want 100 yr olds going into battle (I can see the market for all-terrain walkers soaring) but because they making preparations for another draft. Or at least that's the way it seems to me. Does anyone have another explanation of this besides they are gearing up to draft people for war?

A friend of mine's brother was convicted of a felony for growing marijuana plants in his college dorm. Thirty years later he still can't vote and his felony record prevents him from getting a good job.
Because of his story and others like it, I introduced bipartisan legislation to restore federal voting rights for non-violent offenders upon release from prison.
Rand Paul: "Amazing resistance from both republicans and democrats" to the Stand With Israel Act.
Listen @ 1:10 mark:
Anyone care to sort this one out?
My answer: Hamas is controlled opposition, that's why AIPAC opposes the Stand With Israel Act. AIPAC represents the Israeli government. They want US foreign aid to flow to Palestine, so it can flow to Hamas, so Hamas can use the money to attack Israel, so the Israeli military-industrial complex will have an "enemy" to fight. Wake up!

Michael Medved: "Ron Paul is Doctor Demento" on 7-10-14 (at Freedom Fest no less)...Calling Reinforcements For Dr. PaulSubmitted by pawnstorm12 on Thu, 07/10/2014 - 21:13
For the 2nd time in a week, radio talk-show host and liberty-hater Michael Medved has referred to Ron Paul as "Doctor Demento."
He was broadcasting from Freedom Fest when an establishment-GOP caller mentioned Ron Paul as a nut-bag with Alzheimer's who stole 10% of the Romney's votes and causing him to lose.
That's when Medved used the slur to refer to Congressman Paul.
Michael Medved (a Ron Paul-hater from way back), has about as much business at a Freedom Fair as Joseph Stalin.
Quotes by John Zogby about Frontrunner Rand Paul:
"This is the first time a GOP candidate has reached 20% in a crowded field and the first time a Zogby poll has shown someone emerging a bit from the pack."
"Rand Paul appears to do well among all sub-groups, notably men, voters 30-64 years olds, self-identified Republicans, independents, and conservatives, and moderates. He also leads among Protestants and Born Again/Evangelical GOP voters."
Let it go
Let is snow
Don't get buried
To the other side, ferried
Don't get Rick Perried
Stuck On a stage
Owned, and afraid
The path is paved
Or throw arms
A study in contrasts
Spending a lot of time
Listening to St Paul
Who's truths, are many
And Nietzsche, too
Who's truths are plenty
Study in contrasts!
Of one human soul
Of self sacrifice
It's time to make a mountain out of a mole hill and no better cause.
We have this 100% opposite feeling about child rearing and I do feel this fight is best subjected to the light of day.
I responsed to this post about how we love our children and caress them and somebody was like eeeeeeew that's not cool, and you aren't allowed to talk about yumming them up yum yum yum....and how children are so beautiful you just want to live inside their skin.
Anyways I thought I would just tell you how different the place where I came from was.
