Justin Amash is 'Lobbyists' Worst Enemy' according to Washingtonian Mag

Washingtonian magazine this week released its fifteenth biennial survey on the best and worst of all the Congresscritters roaming our great nation's swampy capital.

The publication takes a jab at them:

Despite approval ratings lower than Vladimir Putin's, the men and women of the 113th Congress have continued to debate, investigate, raise funds, and campaign with ebullience. Seeing as little if any legislation arises from their activities, it's apparent that if there are winners and losers, hits and misses, the average citizen isn't privy to the scorecard.

Looking for a Video I once saw

I once saw a video I believe was on this site.. maybe 4 5 months ago?
My Time perception may be off...

Anyway it was an animated video and it talked about the history or some such of countries and how they are just a grouping of territories that a thug controls.
It may have started by talking about dems and repubs.. all very hazy I only have that small fragment left in the memory banks.
It was fairly short and animated and talked about as mentioned what countries really are.
My search was fruitless.

If it rings a bell with someone and they can find it, please post the link!

Libertarian Picks Up Peters Debate Invitation After It Is Discarded By Land

[The user "scotaboman" is Scotty Boman]

Berkley, MI – This Monday (September 8, 2014) Libertarian United States Senate candidate Jim Fulner hand delivered invitations to his Democratic opponent Gary Peters , and his and Republican opponent Terry Lynn land, requesting their participation in debates with him.

It has come to the attention of the Jim Fulner campaign that Representative Peters has invited former Secretary of State Land to a series of debates that she has not yet agreed to.

A number of Michigan media personalities have claimed that she like they will not as the more Michiganders hear Land speak; the less likely they are to vote for her.

Jim Fulner would like to notify Gary Peters that he is willing and able to debate anytime and anywhere that his schedule permits.

It is Fulner’s opinion that debates open to all candidates on the November ballot would be best for Michigan. “If Gary Peters is willing to debate other balloted candidates, even with Lands absence, it will be better for us all and only further show Land’s cowardice.” said Fulner.

This summer the zucchini did the best. This is one example of the numerous massive zucchini plants that has appeared in the vegetable garden.

Soon the U.S. dollar will be worthless.

Russia has now officially begun selling oil to China without using the U.S. dollar as the trade medium. This is the latest step in the death of the pero dollar, and a big step in the end of the U.S. Dollar as a reserve currency.

When that happens the remaining 3% of the dollars original value will be wiped out, and financial collapse will occur.

Right to fair trial?

I have a question to all those legal minded DPers out there. This deals with FOC or Friend of the Court proceedings. If you have the right to remain silent, and the right to have an attorney present even when being charged with the most terrible crimes you could imagine, why and how is it that the FOC is allowed to conduct their "interviews" in a locked back room closet without allowing any legal counsel, any recording devices, or any witnesses?

Fear is a powerful tool

I was doing some thinking the other day and realized that fear controls much of my life.

I'm afraid to always say what's on my mind, because I fear the consequences of being placed on a list, especially the no fly list, may want to leave soon.

I'm afraid to stop paying my taxes, because of fear of the retaliation of the IRS, and the impact it will have on my family's life.

I'm afraid to go out and enjoy myself at the local pubs, because I'm afraid that I may have just too much to put me over the legal limit, and fear having to pay thousands of dollars in fines and legal costs.

I fear taking up arms in open rebellion, because I know the outcome for those who stand alone against governments such as ours.

I fear doing anything which would jeopardize my job, because I fear losing my home and land.
