Fifth grade students at Zeman Elementary School in Lincoln, Neb., were recently sent home with a “flyer” outlining how they should handle bullies. The instructions were apparently deemed so ridiculous by parents that the school district quickly issued an apology and the “inaccurate information” was pulled.
That was after the nine “rules” for dealing with bullies went viral, of course.
Here are some of the more questionable ones:
Today, A Nebraska Judge agreed with opponents' arguments that law passed in 2011 improperly delegated the decision-making power to Nebraska Gov. Dave Heineman to give the company eminent domain powers within the state. Judge Stacy said the decision should have been made by the Nebraska Public Service Commission, which regulates pipelines and other utilities. The lawsuit was filed by three Nebraska landowners who oppose the pipeline.

Nebraska U.S. Senate candidate Ben Sasse.
Ben Sasse speaks out on the unconstitutionality of Obama's unilateral changes to the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) this week.
Healthcare.gov has just been exposed as being built with pirated software code.
Obama administration programmers actually stole software code from a UK company, then tried to cover their tracks by deleting author attributions and software copyright notices.
Will DHS now seize Healthcare.gov and shut it down for committing piracy?
These scare tactics are not working on me. I'm sure the rest of you here feel the same way. What can we do, as "We The People" to activate now and take this thing back? Let the rEVOLution begin now. Then I think, is this what they want? Do they want to see if we are compliant? ....All of these questions, but all of this opportunity was just begging me to post this here today. I'm not sure I've ever posted before, but used to be an avid chatter.
Anyone here from Nebraska have thoughts about this guy?
The following is an excerpt from the description of a live Ebay auction listing.
One day, Logan heard me mention the Raspberry Pi -- a credit-card sized computer -- to a friend. He heard me mention this, and he went back to his laptop and started looking up YouTube videos on it. For four weeks, Logan told me all about the Raspberry Pi and what you could do with it, until I finally broke down and ordered one. Really, I was curious about it, but it was also to shut him up.
A tribute for someone who loved liberty and pushed me so hard to follow my path to return us to genuine prosperity, I would like to offer a laugh to everyone and remind them of her most frequent words:
She loved this stuff!
I really miss you, mom! Thnx for being my rock. 1942-2013 (an hour ago)

A fellow Ron Paul supporter here in Fremont, Nebraska was just escorted off of his job by three armed detectives because some chick got freaked out over his comments about open carry being legal. They are accusing him of making terrorist threats because of his comments.
The lady that turned him in is an older lady he met at the bar that he befriended and played pool with.
We've been through all the discussions on will it or won't it. Since no one really knows for sure, let's skip past that part. I'd like to jump into the discussion of what will transpire on the global to local scales if Bitcoins and their 100,000,000th sized partner the Satoshi did become widely used enough to cause major disruptions.
My thoughts wander into the pretty far fetched grandiose areas because I personally feel that our current monetary system IS ONLY PROPPED UP BY THE CORRUPTIBILITY of fiat, paper/digital currencies.
I'll start us off and everyone can join in and while purely hypothetical conjecture at this point, the best tone would probably be one of past tense. Please no arguments pro or con on it's viability. Let's keep this thread to simply explaining to those who can't see past the fiat for the trees, exactly what life could be like if the people took this or a similar mass plunge.
As I remember, it would really started in a big way when major job markets successfully transitioned to paying wages in Satoshi. The dollar exchange rate put a bitcoin at $1500 each, or 100 Satoshi (S100) cost one penny. Of course, this is skewed because by then, the dollar was only worth 1/2300th of an ounce of gold or 1/80th of an ounce of silver.
The average wage hadn't grown much in dollars for quite a while but when converted over to S, people quickly found
(Disclaimer: I'm personally working on some of these but am not fundraising here.)
The Common Problem
I do not see it as a possible solution one bit to awaken the masses and call for them to rally behind any solution. The only solutions that will work are the ones which can be implemented by much smaller groups. If around 10% or less could make a significant change in one area by themselves, then that has a shot at both it's goals and waking up more people. However, if we rely on big strategies that take 51% or 80% or whatever, we are doomed.
Most solutions generally focus on telling people to compromise something to do the right thing and the result will be bliss. Maybe ignorant bliss. There's no way simply telling people to do the right thing will work. As I detailed out in another comment, in all those battles, we can gain all we want, but the other side is gaining upwards of 7,000 people each day. Every day. (This is the attrition number of our population entering and leaving each stage of life.)
The other aspect is that people will not compromise until they see the whites of their captor's eyes behind the sights of a rifle. They currently live in a world where they KNOW that all things have been tried before, with no success, so why try. If you want them to do the right thing, you must find a way to give them incentives that appeal to them right now. Ask yourselves how to get lots of people to do a specific change while competing with the existing materialist market that they live in.
