The Last Hour
A bill (Kenan Thompson) and an executive order (Bobby Moynihan) explain how government really works with a little help from President Obama (Jay Pharaoh).
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.
In the latest state-led move to curb National Security Agency spying, the Utah legislature advanced a bill this week to turn off the water to NSA’s massive data gathering facility in Bluffdale, which uses more than $30,000 taxpayer dollars-worth of water every month.
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."
You know you love someone when you want for them what they want for themselves.
The three little words that really convey this sentiment are not, “I love you “, which can mean all kinds of things to all kinds of people; rather they are, “As you wish”.
Love is kind, expansive, proactive, and fundamentally non-constraining. And although some of us may disagree on a positive definition of love, we can surely all agree about what it is not: restricting, compelling, imposing, or violating the right of another to pursue his own happiness and self-actualization. Those characteristics attach to something altogether incompatible with love - and that is Fear.
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.
In this episode of the Lions of Liberty Podcast, I am joined by the great antiwar radio host, Scott Horton of the Scott Horton Show! Scott and I discuss anything and everything you could ever hope to know about the latest foreign menace in the news, those rascals known as Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS). Towards the end of the discussion, Scott comments on how the Republican takeover of Congress will impact United States foreign policy, whether we’ll see combat troops in Iraq, and has some interesting remarks about Senator Rand Paul which his fans and critics alike will undoubtedly find interesting.
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.
Do you care, and if so, why?
I'm not sure I care. Especially as an open-borders and no or tiny federal government type. The issue for me is welfare, not "illegal" immigration. I also fully support violating immoral laws and most laws today are immoral. Illegal immigrants create no victims, and if there's no victim then there's no crime. And as most of us on here know - end the stolen handouts and it's suddenly a moot point.
Anyway, I'm curious what ya'll think.
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.
