Cop shoots, kills (Another) homeless man seconds after arriving

Prosecutors have released surveillance video showing Monroe, La. police officer Jody LeDoux shooting and killing a homeless man within seconds of the officer’s arrival on scene. Raymond Keith Martinez was reportedly drunk when he was ejected from a local store and law enforcement was called to remove him, and "may" have reached for what shopkeepers say "may" have been a black cellphone when shot.

Video Exonerates Man Set Up By Louisiana Cops And Prosecutors

If not for cell phone video, 47-year-old disabled veteran Douglas Dendinger could be going to prison — because of an apparent coordinated effort by Washington Parish, La. cops and prosecutors who falsely accused him of battery and witness intimidation.

As New Orleans’ WWL reports, Dendinger’s two-year nightmare began on Aug. 20, 2012, when he was paid $50 to serve a court summons on behalf of his nephew against Bogalusa police officer Chad Cassard in a police brutality lawsuit.

What is the greatest lesson you have learned from our movement or Ron Paul?

I believe the greatest lesson I have learned is 'tolerance' for others. To view each other equally as human beings and respecting that individual as an individual.

What is the greatest 'thing' you have taken away from being involved in our movement?

I'm really gonna miss hanging out here...

We accomplished so much together.

We started the Tea Party.

We raised millions through our organic MoneyBombs.

We pushed back against the system.

We got our guys elected.

We changed the Republican party forever.

We did that. Give yourself a pat on the back no matter what your involvement has been. Its the ideas that bring us together.

I hope this isn't my last post. If it is, just want to let all of you know that I love you and thank you. We overcame great odds against us. Our message is resonating better now than ever before.

What is this?

So I was cruising reddit searching for posts about Mountain Dew Kickstart(this stuff is AWESOME) and stumbled across this sub. Anyone know anything about it?

I thought it was a sub about the band The Bravery and it ended up being a Ron Paul 2016 sub???

Rep. Fleming: Libertarians Are Wrong About Legal Pot

“My libertarian friends suggest to us the old motorcycle helmet argument,” Rep. John Fleming, R-La., said, referencing the argument that the government has no business regulating the personal choices of individuals.

Fleming countered with his opinion that “we as taxpayers have a vested interest in what society does.”

Rand Paul's Liberty Agenda Applauded at GOP Unity Rally to Defeat Landrieu

Rand Paul was the "rockstar libertarian headliner" at a GOP unity rally in Baton Rouge, LA on Monday, according to the American Spectator, and his liberty message was very well-received by the "establishment" Republicans in attendance.

...many of the state’s most prominent GOP politicians were gathered to show solidarity with Senate hopeful Bill Cassidy — who earned 41 percent of the vote in last week’s election, forcing Democratic incumbent Mary Landrieu (42 percent) into a runoff. [...]

Kentucky Senator Rand Paul, the libertarian rock star who headlined the affair, gave an exposition of his “liberty agenda,” which was met with enthusiastic applause from a crowd full of old-school Republican activists. Paul said he had stayed out of the race thus far because he couldn’t choose between Maness and Cassidy—but that he has faith in the GOP’s standard bearer going into the runoff. “I believe Bill Cassidy will defend the Constitution,” he said.

Another murder by cop

LAFAYETTE La. (Reuters) - For six months, Catherine Cortez believed that her 30-year-old son, who died in March after a scuffle with police in Louisiana, had succumbed to brain damage from chronic cocaine use.

Earlier this month, she was horrified to learn from an 11-page state forensic pathologist's report that Robert Minjarez Jr.'s death was instead a police-caused homicide by suffocation, Cortez said on Wednesday.

Please Take Part in my Rand Paul Poll!

We all know Rand isn't Ron. There are several things we as Libertarians take issue with that Rand advocates. Support for Israel, limited military action, endorsement of Mitt Romney (ouch). Whatever, you get the idea.

Yes, he's cozied up to Cory Booker, Mitch McConnel, and some other folks that we on the DP wouldn't necessarily like to rub shoulders with.

HOWEVER, IF the election were today and you had to vote, would YOU vote for him? Let's assume for argument's sake that Rand is the Republican candidate going up against a Democrat.

Funny thing happened on the way to the Daily Paul!

Came home this evening prepared to start the Andouille making this weekend. Made some two weeks ago and sold all of it for $8.00 per pound. All of my BMW motorcyclist customers wanted more. Lol!

Now to the interesting part! When I Google'd Ghost Pepper Andouille what came up first of all was the Daily Paul. Damn, Guess I am the first to come up with this combination.

I must tell you that I have come up with the first combination of seasonings to make a good ghost pepper Andouille. Not too hot. Makes the nose run but doesn't make you sweat. The smokey flavor of the peppers along with the hickory or especially the Pecan smoke makes this especially enjoyable.

Just wanted to let you all know that I found this search to be most gratifying.
