Predictions in due Time...

"Let it not be said that no one cared, that no one objected once it's realized that our liberties and wealth are in jeopardy." - Dr. Ronald Ernest Paul

I wore a Fitbit for a few months

and the whole time I was thinking about how great it was that a small device could potentially track, monitor, or even actively adjust your body's health. I loved it. Then I noticed that I was wearing a serialized tracker that could provide any information it contained to every single bluetooth device within range. It means nothing now, but everything is incrimentalism, and it could eventually be a chip under our skin that does the same. I would rather not be a part of that potential future.

I am glad I watched it. I was not not ready for the ending.



If there is a "policy" at all, other than the obvious Ordo Ab Chao Hegelian Dialectic modus operandi of "Problem, Reaction, Solution," at least more econ-academically speaking, at least in terms of US "foreign aid" political discourse, this is nothing more than Frédéric Bastiat's the Broken Window Fallacy, manifested as fascist WarWhore-Keynesianism:

"Let it not be said that no one cared, that no one objected once it's realized that our liberties and wealth are in jeopardy." - Dr. Ronald Ernest Paul

You thought this was a

You thought this was a propagandist BS interview? The Independents is a libertarian show folks, it was a Reason panel it was softball. If Ron answered questions this way on a major show he would be vilified like old times. The country still isn't 'there' yet, blaming American policy for the acts of thugs.

10-15 million more voters need to believe in non-interventionism (liberty) at home and abroad to change America. Minds changed on Syria. Minds changing on privacy. "Printing money" is part of the dialogue. Win minds through focus, strategy.

so your saying what exactly

Give my vote to someone who I do not trust 100%

compromise MY LIBERTY ?!

Slaves are made in such ways ... enjoy that nice slow boat to tyranny.

Life is a sexually transmitted disease with a 100% fatality rate.
Don't Give me Liberty, I'll get up and get it myself!

Of course there's vegan gut and double chin food.

I don't know how many times people have to be fooled before they learn.

Maher takes his cue directly from Machiavelli, just like his good buddy Chris Matthews. They both smell the fetid political winds shifting and are redirecting their efforts accordingly. I have nothing but contempt for people like them.

I am with you

I have also 86ed the satellite about two years ago. Now I can only take the local news for about five minutes, and less for the national news. The local news is like a cheerleading squad for the AP and whatever the hand-fed crap of the day is. The crap du jour if you will. No investigation. No objectivity. No worries though, anything of any importance eventually ends up on the Daily Paul.

Good, it will divide the

Good, it will divide the social conservatives' choices but don't get overconfident.

There are more serious, primary-voting social conservatives than serious, primary-voting libertarians. Think about that. Liberty is doing much, much better than ever before in the modern era. But liberty is not yet winning. Onward.

10-15 million more voters need to believe in non-interventionism (liberty) at home and abroad to change America. Minds changed on Syria. Minds changing on privacy. "Printing money" is part of the dialogue. Win minds through focus, strategy.


I don't hear anything from republicans, progressive republicans, liberals, progressive liberals, state legislatures or Mayors of cities across the United States talking about violence perpetrated on civilians by police officers.

Been my experience, it only matters if it happens to you. Keep the videos coming...

Mr. Santorum, why do you want to be president?


"All I want... Waaa Hnaaa Hnaaa... is the button..."

"And... I am even pro-life too-hoo-hoo... I swear on m... your... mother's grave... "

And Mr. Santorum, How would you fix the economy?

"We could... blow it up?"


Just like you can't easily find shoes not made in China anymore, will we find the same situation with food? God only knows what kind of deals our debt-ridden government made with the Chinese. And we certainly know how corporations feel about cheaper production costs that make a mockery of our environmental and safety regulations. I'm serious. Try to find garlic (an American staple!) in a delicatessen or supermarket. In the chain market where I shop, the only garlic out there with all the other produce ("fresh produce")... is from China. If you want the garlic produced in the U.S. you'll find it - a small wrapped package (holding two cloves) - on a shelf unit with other small items (packets of thyme and other herbs, bags of pine nuts, etc.). It's nothing you'd readily see. It was pointed out to me when I asked. Well, actually, the first time I asked, a produce guy had to bring it to me from the back. After that, it was pointed out that they now keep some on this shelf unit with specialty items.

When we try to pick out anything by itself, we find it hitched to everything else in the Universe.

"Trickle Down" has failed every time it is used

You can trace the explosion in the gap between the rich and the poor, and the rise of Homelessness (which began in the 1980s) with "Trickle Down" economics. This is a sham (the working class pay the Taxes, and the rich do not) that has failed every time (Reagan, Bush I, Bush II, Obama) it has been used.

Making the rich just pay their fair share also does not by itself expand Government. That just simply avoids a corrupt, biased, and unbalanced approach to the Tax code. The problem with this Country is Wall Street and the big Corporations because they live under a different set of rules. America was supposed to be a Country without a "class system", and not rigged by the rich.

What expands the government is the Global Empire,Pro-Warfare, pro-Police-State, pro-CIA, Pro-Monopoly, Pro-FatCat, Pro-Bankster policies that convert the Country into a totalitarian dictatorship -- in the service of just the top 1%.

And breaking up Monopolies is the most "free market", competitive market thing that you can do. Rigged markets are not free. And a Tax Code rigged on behalf of the Rich is just another form of slavery.

I hope these

self-serving politicians lose that lawsuit. All politicians need a dose of reality, now and again...

Ron Paul 2012...and beyond

that WE you refer to

has many factions. rand's foreign policy is not far removed from obama's. at least for the moment. we're talking regular politics here, not the ron paul freedom movement, and the drive for better education.

yankee got it right

When will everyone learn that to get liberty, you must fight for it. Who do we fight? The gatekeepers -- the GOP and and Democratic Party. They have all the power. The other political parties don't. Can a third party rise to power? Yes, but not anytime soon.

It is clear pharmaceuticals

It is clear pharmaceuticals are scared spit-less of the multiple healing ability inherent in cannabis oil, of many and diverse compositions. The display of ineptitude in the clip shows how divorced from reality bought and paid for politically elected, appointed, and commissioned men and women can be. The comments herein point out that educating the populace on safety first solves these terrible fiery mistakes. The bluster and grimness of persecuting the fire causers is because the level of knowing how to do this process is so low. Besides meth enslaves and degrades life, while cannabis oil heals and repairs life's journeys. May all the sufferer of the diseases prolonged and profited off of be eradicated by the safe production and use of natures healing linchpin.

Meat is Brain Food

From Loren Cordain's 'The Paleo Diet.'

"Meat is Brain Food. The notion that human beings are meant to be vegetarians runs contrary to every shred of evolutionary evidence from the fossil and anthropological record...About 2.5 million years ago, our ancestors begin trading in their big guts for bigger brains-to the point where today our bellies are 40% smaller than those of chimps and our brains are about three times larger. The turning point came when our ancestors figured out that eating animal food (meat and organs) gave them more energy."

taken off title

by mods. it's still in the body of the post. in another interview with john he explained to a girl reporter that he means no offense it's just how they talk in new yawk. she, a bit starry eyed was okay with it.

I shared

it on Twitter, Proud American.

I also forgot to mention the fact that the hypocrite's wife had a medically-induced abortion, but he doesn't want anybody else to have that his wife lived out-of-wedlock for years with a much-older abortion provider, who also was the doctor that delivered her!

Youngest of Willows

Thank God!

I know many have been praying for her. The State Department did everything it could not to do anything to help her. They insisted that their hands were tied. This goes to show yet again that the powers that be hate Christ (and by extension those who BELIEVE) and will only do the right thing if otherwise politically motivated.

How William Craig is Deceiving Your Sensibility

I have a whole playlist on Craig. So if you want more I have it. Including the most condemning and uncontroversial rebuttals.

As you may notice, you are not chatting with someone that "You introduced to William Craig and Kalam." I believe you are the student in this encounter.

If it is not "creation from nothing..."

I have studied Krauss's arguments as well, but let's not try and mix quantum physics that is mysterious and in its infancy and so is even super sketchy at this time with apologetics or plain philosophy. One is physical science, the other is mental conceptualization.

If it is not "creation from nothing... then "god just REFORMED pre-existing material into a universe?" That is what you have implied if it was not "creation ex nihilo."

I am pretty sure you yourself have not thought this through to any deep level. I have studied this argument for several years. And I can say "Krauss and Craig" do not belong in a paragraph together, nor does science or physics have any place in what Craig discusses.

And if god just "reformed the universe from pre-existing things, then god's "act of creating the universe" is as magical and mysterious as you "creating green by putting blue and yellow together (applause, what a miracle, the creation)." And so this VERSION OF CREATION actually has no explanatory power; which is the purpose to invoke a "god" into philosophy in the first place, to explain impossible or implausible events.

Craig tries to HIJACK science and use it to deceive half-wits that need an apologetic figure to look up to.

I would not buy any food from China...

they are not trustworthy. I worked with a salesman who visited China on business and he said that the Chinese have a different ethical standard than we do; they find it perfectly legit to replace an ingredient with another ingredient that is cheaper even though they have signed a contract. They do not care about anyone.

Oh Uncle Ron, you crazy old

Oh Uncle Ron, you crazy old kook with your logic and common sense, give it a rest!

Yes that was sarcasm

A nation of sheep breeds a government of wolves.


does it always take multiple stooges to interview (debate) common sense representatives? And they still don't win. After turning off my cable/satellite two years ago, it's very hard to stomach anything on TV other than a few entertainment shows. I can't watch the news anymore without seeing all of the propagandist BS. Even the "religious" channels are filled with state sponsored BS-SICKENING.

Okay then, then god came from pre-existing material

So if you maintain that "It all came from pre-existing material," then the same applies TO ALL ENTITIES; including god. Unless you just merely wish TO DEFINE CONTRADICTIONS into existence. In which case it is just special pleading, aka favoritism, aka bigotry, toward your favorite god.

"X cannot exist. I define X to exist and call it god."

In other words, the definition of god in that usage is:

god = "that which cannot logically exist."

And it is THE THEIST that have chosen to argue for this definition. It is even apparent in the premises of Kalam, and right at the top of that wiki page

^Which of course I am sure theists would not prefer that be the "meaning of the word god." But that is actually how you are using it now.


Right from the wiki:

Premise: An actual infinite cannot exist.....
Conclusion: God is an actual infinite.

^Interpretation from a reader: "Craig and Kalam DEFINE god as 'that which cannot exist.'"

Not exactly a formidable choice of definition of god even if you ask me the atheist.

And been paid a visit by Obama

Nuff said.

My guess is that's what the white flags on the Brooklyn

Bridge were about. It would be a typical NYC dweller response to a report like you gave us, since that's the kind of humor that is prevalent in this area. On the other hand, it could have been a signal of surrender in the hopes of stopping a nuclear attack on the City.

The thing about this area is that there are two kinds of people living here: the ones who still check under their beds before retiring at night, and those who are wide awake.

Officers injured in the struggle?

I guess you will bruise your fists after you bare knuckle punch a guy a few times.

Looks like we are finally starting a major leg down in gold

and silver that will take both to major new lows by this time next year. I have been bearish on gold and silver since April, 2011, and while it hasn't unfolded as I originally calculated, they are both significantly lower than 2011. My projection for silver is under $5.00 and gold under $700 to be reached by this time next year.

I am bullish on the stock market until this time next year; the NAQDAQ composite index could double by the summer of 2015. Interest rates should have cyclically gone up, but the boot of the fed is thwarting normal cyclical movement.

"Bend over and grab your ankles" should be etched in stone at the entrance to every government building and every government office.

They should fire that agent

If they for some reason have to allow agents to have this discretion (and it's probably a government mandate) then this person has clearly not the mental capacity to have that responsibility.

Beyond that if you are in customer service and can't handle an understandably, if incorrectly, annoyed customer you need to find a new line of work.

She could have just said "I agree you should be able to pre-board with your kids, but SW policy is that only you can do so, and that's what I am bound to. Here's the email address you can write to suggest a policy change and here's my email address so you can copy me"

The War of 1812 was more

The War of 1812 was more successful than the Revolution:

a) fewer US combat deaths, only 2000 in the War of 1812.

b) 4 largest cities occupied by British for long periods of time in Revolution (Boston, New York, Philadelphia, Charleston). In War on 1812, only Washington DC was occupied for one day and it was not close to being a top-4 city.

c) War of 1812 produced a lasting peace that exists to this day.

d) War of 1812 resulted in free trade on Great Lakes, Mississippi River, Gulf of Mexico, West Indies, Atlantic Ocean, and Mediterranean Sea.

e) no hyperinflation during the War of 1812.
