*Democrats* now using words like "fringe" and "isolationist" to argue against non-intervention foreign policySubmitted by egapele on Mon, 08/25/2014 - 11:58
Michael Czin, spokesman for the Democratic National Committee, said on Sunday in a statement that Democrats are eager to debate Paul about "his fringe, isolationist vision" that Czin says would end all aid to foreign allies, including Israel.
After reading the headlines about the most recent officer suspended for his comments concerning Ferguson I couldn't help but see a strange irony. The very ones responsible for the build up of military weapons in local police departments are blaming us now that the public is upset about it.
LONDON – Acclaimed actor and Oscar-winning director Richard Attenborough, whose film career on both sides of the camera spanned 60 years, has died. He was 90.
The actor's son, Michael Attenborough told the BBC that his father died Sunday. He had been in poor health for some time.
Prime Minister David Cameron issued a statement calling Attenborough "one of the greats of cinema."
"His acting in `Brighton Rock' was brilliant, his directing of `Gandhi' was stunning," Cameron said.
THE COLLATERAL CHILDREN by Gideon Levy
"After the first child, nobody batted an eye; after the 50th not even a slight tremor was felt in a plane’s wing; after the 100th, they stopped counting; after the 200th, they blamed Hamas. After the 300th child they blamed the parents. After the 400th child, they invented excuses; after (the first) 478 children nobody cares.
Then came our first child and Israel went into shock. And indeed, the heart weeps at the picture of 4-year-old Daniel Tragerman, killed Friday evening in his home in Sha’ar Hanegev. A beautiful child, who once had his picture taken in an Argentinean soccer team shirt, blue and white, number 10. And whose heart would not be broken at the sight of this photo, and who would not weep at how he was criminally killed. “Hey Leo Messi, look at that boy,” a Facebook post read, “you were his hero.”

I have no words.
I hope you're doing well.
I don't mean to alarm you or frigthen you, but I am seeking asylum in Russia. There is no reason to be frightened of the thought of asylum. Asylum is a legal right. There is no reason to fear the Russians. Many Russians are gentle people and are a lot like Americans in many ways.
It’s extremely rare to have the genesis of a political smear campaign uncovered for all to see, just like it is uncommon to read the correspondence between senior government officials and media backers to attack opponents and critics. And yet, that’s exactly what is unfolding in New Zealand.
All I know of this man is two things:
1) This scene from Ghandi (directed by Attenborough) ... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3GG_4UaCD8E ... one of the most powerful scenes in history;
2) The grandfather and ingenuity behind Jurassic Park (my favorite movie ever (through the eyes of an 18 year old));
Rest in much peace and thank you for these memories.
PEace and LOve always......
Remember when Obama wanted to do a "limited surgical strike" on Syria's Assad and the people rose up in protest? That was one of the only times that I ever called my congressman about an issue and his secretary was saying that he had received hundreds of call like mine. It was amazing to see Americans rise up and say no to the Syrian War.
Just saw this on twitter from @DougWead1234
"About to publish my first book. It's called Cover Up. Here is a link to a sample chapter. If you like what you... http://fb.me/3MC5hADT6 "
The link goes to here
It's a little confusing because Doug doesn't seem to be the author.
Has he gotten into the publishing business?
WASHINGTON (AP) -- Calling Hillary Rodham Clinton "a war hawk," Sen. Rand Paul says that if the former secretary of state seeks the presidency, some voters will worry that she will get the U.S. involved in another Mideast war.
Paul is a leading anti-interventionist in the GOP and is considering running for president. Last year he opposed President Barack Obama's call for military action in Syria.
Senator Bob Corker's “The Russian Aggression Prevention Act” (RAPA): A Direct Path to Nuclear War with RussiaSubmitted by krp.nc on Sun, 08/24/2014 - 10:29
Dr. Paul Craig Roberts: In the article below, Steven Starr explains how Republican Senator Bob Corker’s “Russian Aggression Prevention Act” by consequence or design is driving Russia toward nuclear war. I agree with Starr that Corker’s bill is mindless, reckless, and irresponsible. Corker’s idiotic bill serves war alone, and the chances of the war being nuclear are extremely high.
Libertarian Party remains on Illinois ballot this fall
'The Illinois State Board of Elections on Friday voted to knock off the statewide slates of the Green Party and the Constitution Party for insufficient candidacy nominating signatures.
But the board allowed the Libertarian Party slate to remain on the Nov. 4 ballot, including governor candidate Chad Grimm of Peoria and U.S. Senate candidate Sharon Hansen of Pontiac.'
Found an article published today by Eric Margolis, http://www.lewrockwell.com/2014/08/eric-margolis/about-that-..., where he repeats the facts, more or less, as I've pointed them on the DP over the last few days.
