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.

Justin Amash: "time for republicans to stop listening to Dick Cheney"

Former Vice President Dick Cheney met with House Republicans Tuesday morning after returning from their August recess, warning lawmakers about how grave the threat of Islamic State (ISIS) terrorists is.
But some anti-interventionist Republicans were not thrilled about Cheney’s foreign policy views returning to prominence in the party.
Rep. Justin Amash, R-MI, fresh off of his victory of a contentious Republican primary, was one of them.

The Pleasantly Perfect Pumpkin Patch

This is a follow up to my dailypaul gardens thread.

http://www.dailypaul.com/322348/daily-paul-gardens-the-jrd-e...

As some of you know, this summer I was quite busy tending to a lot of acreage and multiple gardens. I took on a lot at the beginning of the summer, and it kept me quite busy.

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.

Libertarians Hoping Amash Gets Like-Minded Help in November

Libertarians have high hopes for several Republican House seat hopefuls this fall who they see as potential allies for Michigan Rep. Justin Amash, an outspoken libertarian who stands nearly alone with his political views.

On Tuesday, Tom Emmer's win in Minnesota gave them reason to celebrate more, as they see him as a possible heir to outgoing Republican Rep. Michele Bachmann's seat who will also help to back up Amash's point of view, reports The Washington Examiner.

Amash dissent: Why my opponent's smears were 'disgusting'

by Justin Amash
August 14, 2014 at 9:55 AM

Editor's note: The following is a dissent to the Aug. 10 Grand Rapids Press editorial Amash missed chance to take high road.

Why did West Michigan have to endure "the ugliest House primary" in the country?

That’s how a national magazine described the attacks aimed at me over the last 10 months.

They included a thinly veiled slur that one of the handful of Arab Americans in Congress is “al Qaeda’s best friend.”

“Who’d they say is Daddy’s best friend?” my six-year-old daughter asked my wife.

UPDATE: GOP to purge Liberty contingent in Oakland County, MI

See Update below

*************************
I will report back after our County convention tonight - but I believe here's what's going to go down... as an elected precinct delegate (second time) I received an email from the local GOP saying that "oopsy" we made a mistake and didn't properly file our plan. Due to our "mistake" we can't hold local area caucuses during our convention, and must caucus as a county as a whole.
