...With ONLY 80 million out of 1.2 BILLION now self-identifying at Communist, more and more common citizens becoming millionaires and billionaires, a vibrant and growing middle class, and a move towards the gold standard...you have to wonder.
General Motors sold more cars in China than in the United States in the first half of 2010, and China now accounts for one-quarter of the company's global sales. That seems like a lot of capitalism for a country that calls itself communist. How communist is China, really?
I don't know if anyone has posted this yet and I have no idea about Ben Carson's background - however.
Also I don't view this 'blaze' website, I got linked this.
One must wonder why is there a state of impunity with regards to the lie that GMOs are safe as natural foods.
At least the Europeans are acting on it, when will the FDA do their job?

The government is at it again. This just shows how people are expendable to the government. Fight back and write to your politicians.
Dakota Meyer, you should see what happened the last time they told Ron Paul to apologize. He has nothing to apologize for.
President Barack Obama will award the Medal of Honor to former Staff Sgt Clinton L. Romesha during a White House ceremony Monday, Feb. 11. Click link to read Romesha's story.
I don't think its appropriate to criticize the recipient. Just wondering what everyone else thinks about this. Now we have two living recipients of this award, formerly reserved for those who given their lives in the line of duty, both signed by President Obama. Thoughts? If you want to just get to the Citation of the Award it is available here:
The stockpiling of ammunition by the Homeland Security agency has reached ridiculous proportions, with the latest purchase coming in at 21.6 million rounds of jacketed hollowpoint ammo. According to Infowars.com that brings the grand total that the agency owns to a whopping 1.625 billion rounds. Paul Joseph Watson puts this into great perspective in his article, answering the question that immediately pops into mind – basically, “how many rounds can they possibly need or go through?” Well…
To put that in perspective, during the height of active battle operations in Iraq, US soldiers used 5.5 million rounds of ammunition a month. Extrapolating the figures, the DHS has purchased enough bullets over the last 10 months to wage a full scale war for almost 30 years.
30 Years of full scale war levels of ammunition stockpiled! For an organization that isn’t actively waging war overseas and isn’t intended to be deployed abroad. None of the various missions of the Homeland Security Department and it’s 240,000 employees seem to be waging a full scale war, yet they have enough ammunition for each and every employee to have 6,666 rounds per person. It’s also 5 bullets for each and every American, should we be the ones targeted… something that has been rising to the top of many minds.
Increasing the price of alcohol by 10 per cent can cut drink-related deaths by a third and reduce the consumption of even heavy drinkers, a new study has found.
The claims by a study published in the journal Addiction found raising the price of cheaper drinks reduced the consumption of heavier drinkers. Research was carried out between 2002 and 2009 after the minimum pricing limits for alcohol drinks were set in Canada. The 32 per cent impact was bigger than had been expected, said the scientists.

PODCAST (NPR) - Robert Siegel speaks to Virginia Delegate Robert Marshall about why he feels that the commonwealth needs to have other currency available in case anything happens to the Federal Reserve System.
"Rand Paul seeks Distance from Ron Paul's Foreign Policy...In tone at least". This article actually makes an effort to let the reader know that Ron Paul was NOT an isolationist, rather he was more of a non-interventionist. It's refreshing to see accurate portrayal of Ron Paul's ideas, regardless of how you feel about Rand.
"While many people think of Ron Paul as an isolationist, it’s important to note that he identified more as a non-interventionalist — i.e. getting involved only in limited circumstances in which American interests were clearly at stake. For example, even as he was a vocal critic of the war in Iraq, he initially voted the authorize the use of force in Afghanistan."

Seeking to counter President Obama's speaking skills with a great orator of their own, Republicans have tapped Sen. Marco Rubio to deliver the official GOP response to Mr. Obama's State of the Union address next week — in both English and Spanish.
"Marco Rubio embodies the optimism that lies at the heart of the Republican vision for America," said Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, Kentucky Republican.
The move is symbolic for many reasons — not least of which is Mr. Rubio's prominent stance in favor of legalizing illegal immigrants, which is an issue that has deeply divided the GOP.
It's just one of those things that are like, "Whoa, dude."

The story begins in 1971. Richard Nixon was facing re-election. The Vietnam war was threatening his popularity at home, but just as big an issue with voters was the soaring cost of food. If Nixon was to survive, he needed food prices to go down, and that required getting a very powerful lobby on board – the farmers. Nixon appointed Earl Butz, an academic from the farming heartland of Indiana, to broker a compromise. Butz, an agriculture expert, had a radical plan that would transform the food we eat, and in doing so, the shape of the human race.
Butz pushed farmers into a new, industrial scale of production, and into farming one crop in particular: corn. US cattle were fattened by the immense increases in corn production. Burgers became bigger. Fries, fried in corn oil, became fattier. Corn became the engine for the massive surge in the quantities of cheaper food being supplied to American supermarkets: everything from cereals, to biscuits and flour found new uses for corn. As a result of Butz's free-market reforms, American farmers, almost overnight, went from parochial small-holders to multimillionaire businessmen with a global market. One Indiana farmer believes that America could have won the cold war by simply starving the Russians of corn. But instead they chose to make money.
