Someone Please Explain This (The FED) to me?

Someone please help me!?

The FED come out today to tell everyone exactly what we all knew they would say: "WE need to print more... There is no Inflation....".

Immediately following, the US dollar jumps in value against every other pair. Literally, values are still increasing.

On September 4th the Bank of England said they were going to mimic the federal reserves bond buying project and their value dropped significantly against the USD (What you might expect). This goes against all logical sense to me and i do not understand.

What defines a "Right"? Welfare for your Safety?

I love all of you, and I never want to project my feelings on to any of you. I am just opening up a conversation.

What defines a “right”?

From what I understand, the term as we know it stemmed from the divine right of Kings Theory. This danced along the premises that a King has been ordained by God to be the ruler, and therefore given great powers, protect the week.

The foundations of America were built on the same ideals with a little twist (Absence of the God ordained part): Stating that I have been appointed by the community, with great power, to protect the week.

Millennial elected to Florida House of Representatives at age 23

Jennifer Sullivan, a student at Liberty University, lives at home with her parents and now represents over 150,000 people.

“I admit that I don’t have all the answers,” Sullivan said, “what I do know is that it doesn’t take a 40 year business owner to know that big government is bad, little government is good, we need less taxes, less regulations, and we need someone who is going to be a fighter for the people.”

Red light camera industry fights citizen vote (Video)

"Both the city and the red light robot shakedown industry are fighting the citizens of a small town in Florida. According to the law, if enough signatures are gathered for a referendum (there were) there’s supposed to be a referendum come election time in Brookville. But since this referendum would determine whether red light cameras (and the revenue they generate) would remain in the city, big time lawyers have descended on this sleepy backwater to reverse the citizen tide."

Today is my 7 year anniversary on the Daily Paul!

I have thought a lot about what I want to say for my anniversary. So here it is. It may fare well, or it may fade away into the pages of the PAUL. But I believe that it may be an idea whose time has come.

I've read several nice posts and comments lately about how much @XYZ loves the folks on the Daily Paul. And, comments by #$^%& about how they would love to get together with other Daily Paulers if "Micheal would just call for a reunion" (sigh)

Is War Really a Racket?

Please imagine that one day, looking out your window, you note that a construction crew is building a brick wall around a neighbor’s house across the street and down the way. On subsequent days you note further progress and become perplexed over what your neighbor’s motivation might be. The wall is high and unpleasant looking. It surrounds the home, but for a few meters in the front. You become irritated at this unsightly mess and the damaging effect it has on the aesthetics of the neighborhood.
