Should cops be required to wear video cameras at all times?

Is more transparency necessary during police encounters? They are public servants. Video evidence would cut down on a cops word against a criminal or victim. Or do they deserve a certain amount of privacy just like the average citizen.. Does that privacy go away when they get public jobs that we pay for? What do you guys think? Is it a better use for our NSA to record the public servants and not the private citizens?

I've seen it, I know I have - Draft of Patriot Act dated before 9-11-01

WI congressman and author of the Patriot Act Sensenbrenner is out boohooing the monster he created. Now I've looked deep before and I know I saw it. I'm almost positive it was a .gov site like showing the history of bills including the drafts and committee votes before being submitted to the House. I know it was dated before 9-11-01 on some of the drafts - but I can't find it anywhere.

Any help on this? Is that a feature somewhere I can access? Was this feature scrubbed since I last saw it?

An apparent dead cause!

My open letter is in the works starting tomorrow. I am trying to spread the word that if we present and have enough support world-wide, we can during this holiday season send the gift of emotion, inquiry, plea, genuineness and human duty to one of the greatest threats that has and is making property of food by claiming they have the capacity and consent of mother nature to alter and degenerate the prosperity and potential it provides.

What say you we make December 1st, 2013 the day when we collaborate to send a clear message to Monsanto that we are aware and awake?

Where does wealth come from?

We continue along in the reading of Jaron Lanier's new book, Who Owns the Future?. I began this discussion here on the DP by rebroadcasting a question he raised: What is so interesting about you that you're worth spying on? He is not talking about the NSA, but rather private commercial enterprises.

At Loc 597 (8% into the book), he states:

IMHO, this video is pretty clear that JFK was not shot by Oswald.

So if you just drop all the he said, she said, and simply look at this video with unbiased eyes, it appears pretty clearly to me that the head shot that killed Kennedy came from his 1 or 2 O'Clock direction.

If I had any doubt whether or not it was an entry or exit wound on the right side of his head, that doubt is erased by the fact that Jackie went to retrieve a piece of his skull off the back of the car. What Jackie was doing is not disputed by anyone that I know of. Kinetic force coming from the front would seem to be needed to send an object flying backwards.

Why is supply and demand so controversial on DP

I'm not sure where everyone's getting their economic mythology these days, but when someone says that an influx of labor being sold at a price below the prevailing wage height in any given field will lower the average wage for that field, where is the controversy?

It's simple supply/demand dynamics. You might believe that in the long run the wage will rebound, but as a matter of direct effect, adding supply to a market at a lower selling price than the existing supply up for sale will lower the price.

Who here works in the Sheriff's department?

So... I have been rolling around the idea of potentially joining the Sheriffs department. Being somewhat inspired by videos like the one below; I believe there is a need for more liberty, constitutional Sheriffs. Also if SHTF the more like-minded people we have in positions of authority, the better.

This is just something I've been mulling over in my head, and am curious if anyone here has experienced input.

I think the Phillippine Typhoon was manmade


This massive storm originally began its rotation , was born out of a microwave anomaly in the West Pacific. This video discusses the findings, and possible origin of the microwave pulse. Coming from where???! US Airforce base near the location.

I'm looking for the original Ron Paul moneybomb videos

I'm looking for the original Ron Paul moneybomb videos. There is one video in particular that shows a re-enactment of the Boston Tea Party in the beginning, and music. I can't seem to find it.

For the Legal Minds of the DP

My son, despite my counsel to the contrary, has decided to take the plunge and enroll in the big L: Law School.


The good news is, I'm not on the hook financially. Even better, I relish the thought of a lawyer-joke email a day sent with love from me to him.

In any event, for Christmas he's asked for a good read to prep himself mentally for 1L. Not being a lawyer - but being an honorary scofflaw by being a member of this site - what better source than here to get recommendations for his request?

What if more Doctors move to cash-only service. Can we avoid Obamacare this way?

I admit my ignorance, yet it keeps me out of the box.

What if more Doctors move to cash-only service.

What if individuals purchased personal casualty discretionary insurance, where the individual determines it's general use.

Is this legally possible with the (purposed) obamacare?

Can we avoid Obamacare this way?

First-Time Gun Owner, Need Advice

I've never owned a gun and haven't really needed one. All of this has changed. I live in the country and have been here in the same house for 6 years now and have never had any problems. My house was burglarized yesterday. I talked to the neighbors today and one of them saw a car sitting in my driveway last night while I was sleeping. Tonight a pickaxe sits in the kitchen at the ready. Tomorrow, I will be borrowing an automatic 12-gauge with some buckshot. I really would like some advice on what to get, preferably something cheap but effective. I will be making a purchase next paycheck.

What are the most hated things that you've said here at the Daily Paul?

Have you ever said something on this site that seemed to tick a lot of people off? Lots of downvotes, nasty responses, etc.?

Now that it's been a while and you've had a chance to reflect, do you still stand by what you said back then?

I'm interested in documenting the things that seem to make other's blood boil on the Daily Paul. By cataloging highly downvoted statements, it may help us understand how the community generally feels on certain topics.

I will include my list as a comment.
