It's a good cause. I'll be back on payday this Thursday.
From the website Vice:
Most people were first exposed to Michael C. Ruppert through the 2009 documentary, Collapse, directed by Chris Smith. Collapse was one of the scariest documentaries about our world and the fragile the state of our planet. It was also one of VICE's favorite films from the past ten years.
Michael was forced to leave the LAPD after claiming that the CIA was complicit in selling drugs across America, and he quickly became one of the most original and strident voices to talk about climate change, government corruption, and peak oil through his website, “From the Wilderness."
Following the release of Collapse, Michael’s personal life underwent something of a collapse itself and he paid off all his debts, left behind all his friends, and moved with his dog Rags to Colorado, planning to commit suicide.
VICE caught up with Michael in the middle of the epic beauty of the Rocky Mountains at the end of last year. We found a man undergoing a spiritual rebirth—still passionate about the world and with a whole new set of apocalyptic issues to talk about.
Apocalypse, Man is an intimate portrait of a man convinced of the imminent collapse of the world, but with answers to how the human spirit can survive the impending apocalypse.

Bevin offers different explanations of his signature on 2008 report; Responds to Paul's credibility commentSubmitted by JO4RP on Wed, 02/19/2014 - 16:17
News to me - says it's been going on for a week now.
“So, there shouldn't be any federal minimum wage?” Rand Paul: “I’m not so sure I’m saying that. But I think what I am – I’m not sure I have an answer as far as whether there is a right or wrong –”
“Do you advocate getting rid of the minimum wage, would that create more jobs?” Ron Paul: “Absolutely. It would help the poor people who need jobs. Minimum wage is a mandate. We’re against mandates so why should we have it? It would be very beneficial.”
Hi all, I am interested in beginning to invest in gold. However, I have no idea where to begin. Is this merely buying shares in mines, buying up gold coinage, etc?
If you were starting today, where would you start?
I believe we are starting to whip things into shape in Kentucky, but I'm reaching out for help from lovers of liberty around the country.
This could have turned out soooo much worse!
Perhaps the funniest part is the typo under her picture, which says she "fired her fun". Leave it to a politician to fire fun!
New Polling in Kentucky Shows McConnell is Vulnerable
Full article here:
The latest poll from Kentucky, conducted by Public Policy Polling, completely countermands the conventional wisdom that McConnell is a shoo-in to win the primary. In addition, the poll shows that McConnell is indeed the weaker candidate to go up against Democrat Alison Lundergan Grimes in the general election. Here are some of the highlights:
* Senator McConnell is leading conservative Matt Bevin 53 to 26 percent in the primary. Previously, McConnell has led by 39 and 47 points; now he is only up 27 points. A strong majority, 61%, still have no opinion of Bevin. It is quite clear that as Bevin raises his name ID, he will make this race competitive.
* How unpopular is Mitch McConnell? Barack Obama lost the state by 23 points and 116 of 120 counties last year. Even 40% of Democrats voted against the President in the Democrats primary of 2012. Yet, Mitch McConnell sports an identical 31% approval rating statewide. Even among Republicans his approval has dropped to 47%. Clearly, primary voters are getting the message that McConnell is a finger lickin’ fraud.
