Similar to the "Six degrees of Kevin Bacon" game, how many degrees are you from Ron Paul?
Here's the closest I can find for myself:
1. My mother-in-law is friends with Kathy Pratt
2. Kathy Pratt is the mother of Christ Pratt (Andy from NBC's Parks and Recreation)
3. Chris Pratt just starred in The Delivery Man, with Vince Vaughn.
4. Vince Vaughn, as most of you know, is a dedicated Ron Paul supporter and attended Ron Paul's annual BBQ last year.
Can you beat 4?
No... "I shook Ron Paul's hand once" doesn't count...
Will anyone venture to guess what the big surprise gift will be over this Christmas Holiday?
One year we got the NDAA while huddling around the fire with our families for the holidays.
What will be railroaded through this holiday?
Bitcoin went from 1250 dollars to $650 in a day. Safe investment? I think not. Uh any fool can see that a bubble was forming in the last 2 weeks many people tried to get rich, some did, but as most Ponzi schemes go most didn't. True its not a true Ponzi scheme but speculation definitely fueled the value. I still think there's value in bit coins, but I would put it more around $5 coin. Sure I wish I bought it at $5, I'd be a very wealthy man. But the surge from 100 to 1200 in about 2 months time is ridiculous don't you think? Pm's are STILL proving themselves as a much safer haven.
That's what Rex Nutting at MarketWatch thinks.
Low wages are holding us back. Since the official end of the recession more than four years ago, the average wage has barely kept up with inflation, even though workers are more productive and are creating more profits for the owners they work for.
Since June 2009, real average weekly earnings have increased 0.3% per year , even as productivity has increased 1.5% per year. Most of the income gains have gone to the highest paid workers, including the bosses. Real median weekly wages have actually declined 0.8% per year since 2009.
Slow income growth means consumer spending has also grown slowly. Most households are still trying to avoid taking on too much debt (like they did in the 2000s), so they don’t have the purchasing power to buy the additional goods and services that the economy could be producing.
Lately I've been pondering the government's (specifically the federal government's) role in abortion and I wanted to get all your thoughts so I can better formulate my own thoughts on the subject.
I believe that abortion is murder and that it is wrong. I realize not everybody believes that, but that's not necessarily my question.
IF... abortion is murder, then why wouldn't the federal government make a law against it?
Now, I know what you're thinking, because one side of my brain is thinking it too.
CNN: Does Smoking Pot Cause Man Boobs?
By Dr. Anthony Youn, CNN Contributor
December 5, 2013 -- Updated 1228 GMT (2028 HKT)
CNN) -- A young man in his 20s -- let's call him George -- sits across from me in the exam room.
"Dr. Youn," he says, "I have man boobs."
I notice a not-so-unfamiliar smell wafting from his body. It's the same odor that floated my way during a rock concert I recently attended.
"How long have you had a problem with this, George?"
"Hard to say. But it seems to have gotten worse over the past year or so."
The goal, of course, being to force the government to recognize the legitimacy of Bitcoins. If the government accepts them, it means "official" recognition of Bitcoin as a means of payment. The question is also what would they do with the bitcoins? Would they exchange it, would they spend it, etc?
I suppose they could refuse to accept them and then claim the tax bill was unpaid. How would that argument work out in court? What are the implications of a court declaration that such method of payment was valid?
How exactly does one send bitcoins to the IRS?
I just watched Obama lie to millions of people. It is impossible for me to sit still while watching him spew such filth. I know this is mostly pointless and not going to change anything, but it gave me something to do for a short period.
I created a petition at petitions.whitehouse.gov for Obama to hold a press conference with people who have been hurt, stolen from, etc from Obamacare. Please sign and share.
Would you be more inclined to look in that section first if it were distinguished from the rest of the product?
Would you like to see this in a local store?
Do you think this could cause societal pressure and a trend toward buying more U.S. made products?
Do you own a store and would you experiment with this as the owner?
Bloomberg / Businessweek: How Patents Tell the Tale of the Booming U.S. Gun Market
By Paul M. Barrett December 02, 2013
Here’s my favorite gun-nerd dispatch in quite a while, courtesy of the eagle-eye intellectual-property mavens at Bloomberg News:
“Gunmakers such as Smith & Wesson Holding Corp. (SWHC) and Sturm, Ruger & Co. (RGR) are boosting firearms sales by building weapons that are more accurate and easier to use, with gun-related U.S. patents at a 35-year high.
Please express your thoughts regarding the letter below. I will be submitting via US certified, return-receipt and restricted delivery mail next week. Thank you in advance for any and all interest in my concerns regarding GMO's.

To the direct and sole attention of Hugh Grant, Chief Executive Officer of Monsanto,
I'm looking for that graph that was on Ron Paul's campaign booklets that showed our currency and how inflation increased and the value of the dollar decreased after the Fed took power in 1913. I'm trying to wake some people up and this graph would really help me!
We all know about Litecoin and if you are paying attention it has been spectacular in its rise in price recently. That being said, what other cheap crypto currencies are you looking at?
I recently cashed out a litecoin and bought several Mincoins.
They promise a 1 minute transaction time, which is the fastest I have seen so far...
What do you guys think?
