The Last Hour
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.
I just got this message on Facebook. Guess that's it. They're cracking down on folks with fictitious names

Reason magazine and CATO suck! They get some things right, but they are total establishment shills on important issues.
Are they saying there is no libertarian argument for refusing to have someone stick a needle in your arm and dump heavy metals and "weakened" viruses?
Or are they saying there is no libertarian argument against forcing someone to use a product? Big Pharmacy certainly wants everyone vaccinated.
Unofficial Ron Paul HQ of Mount Desert Island (Maine) Burns
I am sad to report that on Dec. 4, 2013, the freedom outpost of Mount Desert Island burned to the ground. In a land of Obama sticker-clad Subarus, Cap’n Nemo’s was an oasis for freedom lovers to enjoy colossal beers, fresh seafood and the company of colorful sea captains and other locals.
Driving home from work today, I got caught in highway rush hour traffic. Cars were slowly moving at about 5 mph at best. The highway was a parking lot. I could literally see thousands of cars ahead in a long line of traffic that went for miles.
Then came one of the oddest, dumbest things I've ever experienced while driving.
Bright lights started flashing from behind.
The guy behind me started flashing his lights! As if to say, "Get out of the way, you're driving too slow."

Peace officer fires 3X into minivan with 5 children.
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.
** Note: Look for this to reply on C - span later on some time...and by the way, look for senator Paul on Fox News Sunday. It will be a FOX NEWS EXCLUSIVE you won't want to miss (Check Local Listing)
so for the last 3 days i sat in a court for my jury summons.
after 3 days 15,000,000 questions and 135 people later, including myself, we were let go.?
it was a murder case.
during that time i talked sincerely to about 40 people in groups of 3-10 on our breaks/ @ lunch and during our walk to our vehicles.
i can say that every one of those people knows about jury nullification now.
when you tell someone that they have more power at the end of the day than a judge it makes them feel special.
and tom woods radio show should have about 5-6 new listeners this week.
