Again, what VOTE has he made thus far for war?

Again, every quote you demonstrated sounds CONSTITUTIONAL.

Again, he has to appear strong with national security types. His wording is well parsed to ensure it remains constitutional, which is what is important (70 years of unconstitutional wars have lead to the bankruptcy of the nation).

The media

just reported the ambulance used to transport the ebola patient was used for two day after the transport. This could spread quickly if it gets into high occupied areas. They say it's not 'airborne', but that's a crock of shit!

Who are you gonna vote for?

When the time comes?

What do you want the people in Washington DC to do? Or do you even care? Do you want them to stop messing around playing god and playing king?


Ain't it great,

that all our politicians, including Rand, support these Ukrainian thugs? They were behind the coup, they were praised, they will still be praised today. They will all say this is all, because of those damn Rusky's meddling with Ukraine, what a farce! Those who are huge Rand supporters, should be calling and emailing him, why aren't the MH17 black box recordings being released to the public? Is he helping to hide something? I mean, if Rand doesn't start questioning the well reported US backed coup, the failed release of the MH17 recordings and contiues to support 'act of war' sanctions, and this leads to war with Russia, he's a complicit conspiritor. The question needs to be asked, why hasn't anybody interviewed and questioned him on these issues? This isn't a difference in foreign policy with his father, this is being complicit in a conspiracy his father has clearly stated.

HAHA. It's just so

HAHA. It's just so unexpected, haha. Had me cracking up. :)

No, not one of them. Sheeple? Nope, not one of them. Die hard, true believers? Nope. Not one of of them, either.

Where do I belong? I remember touch.

Yeah, I'm not Rand's audience

That is for sure!

Don't Trust McCain....

Trust Ron Paul, who said of Rand:

"His views are closer to mine than anyone else."

Ron knows his son. Rand doesn't have a banker's or a lawyer's background - he's a doctor like his father.

The next threat is RANDOM

When you see this on the Daily Currant or the Onion, just remember--You heard it here on the DP first folks. Breaking...

The World Intelligence Network has just identified another imminent threat to global harmony. Although the information is unconfirmed, WIN has tracked the threat nexus to the State of Kentucky where the leader of the insurgency seems to be referred by his supporters by the alias of RAND. These Randoms should be considered culturally backwards, clinging to a political doctrine from over two hundred years old ago. Especially alarming, they are fermenting discontent in the orderly political equilibrium the world has achieved and insisting that grants of freedom be given to all people and not to just the deserving and underrepresented special classes. The analysts of WIN, at Alcossebre facility in Spain, have determined the number of Randoms will continue to rise and present an increasing threat to order. Although the exact day is unknown, WIN has placed a high likelihood of a strike by RANDOM sometime in 2015-2016.

Received a mailing about this

("this" being the ballot measure, not the event)

the other day - it was all about how tightly everything was going to be regulated,
how much tax revenue was going to be coming in... the proponents are using the
regulatory models for alcohol and tobacco as if those are somehow successes and
positive examples.

It's really unfortunate that Paul Stanford's improved version of the failed 2012
Measure 80 didn't really get off the ground this time and failed to make the ballot.

Both the original and what would have been the 2014 version were far more libertarian and less bureaucratic than the Washington and Colorado models and had built-in 10th Amendment challenges in the event the federal guvmint sought to overrule/nullify legalization.

The full text is worth reading just for the "Whereas's":

A perceived weak point of the bill had to do with the composition of the board that was to oversee implementation and Stanford had changed that for 2014.

I'm planning to vote for Measure 91, but IMHO if it passes marijuana, alcohol and tobacco producers and consumers should immediately get to work on something to completely rework and hopefully, greatly reduce and streamline the whole regulation and tax structure governing this stuff.

The Oregon Liquor Control Commission, which would have the lead role in implementing Measure 91 is a holdover from the failed Prohibition of the 1920"s - I think you'd look long and hard to find an Oregonian who has anything good to say about it...

So, yeah - "Yes" on 91 and then time to get to work on clearing out the bureaucratic nanny state crap. My personal choices for regulatory models are the ones for fir trees and dandelions...

Inside the Catholic Church with Louis CK

This is no laughing matter. But Louis CK knew about this all along.

The only people who care what mccain thinks

are the same people who think that everyone is trying to attack us because of how FREE we are. Like mccain has anything important to offer or say ever. All he cares about is more war and exactly why the crazy right LOVE his nutzo butt. - My site on getting my little family prepped for whatever might come our way. - My site on growing marijuana

You know it's 72 hours?

Where did you get this info from?

A link, a source, anything?

You know, MSF, a volunteer group of doctors who have treated disaster victims across the globe for decades, also provided the 2-21 day incubation period.

If you have a source or reason to believe it to be so, I would be glad to hear it.

A Voice, A Rally.. today in Kharkov

appealing to the other locals... NOT to give in to the intimidation.
They're all worried about their futures, their pensions, the announced 'austerity' measures (now) being imposed by IMF now that the bankrupt/sold out junta running their country out of Kiev has begun pledging what little assets are left to the bankers. They'd probably get along just fine... they're so poor anyway.. if they were just left alone. But they're not. Kiev thugs are IN THEIR FACE!!

So.. a small little rally. Guess what happens????

I'm skeptical about your post content

I sense it's easier to contract than what this post is leading on to. As mentioned in this graphic above, sweat and saliva can spread the virus.

Shaking hands, high fiving, a pat on the back, is enough for sweat transmission. Then saliva transmission can be delivered through coughing and sneezing. To me, that sounds just as contagious as a flu virus.

Another concerning thing is that these doctors that are treating the sick in West Africa, have airtight hazmat suits on, yet some are still contracting the virus.

To me, I think based off these thoughts, it's very rational to believe that ebola isn't as hard to contract as they make it sound (and this graphic).

No I don't think this will be an out of control outbreak in the United States like it is in Africa. Just having better living conditions and the ability to efficiently hydrate yourself does wonders. But I still see it being a fairly big problem or the CDC wouldn't be holding press conferences about it.

Lawful Laws in the Constitution...

Article, I Section 8, Last Paragraph says:

“To make all Laws which shall be necessary and proper for carrying into Execution the foregoing Powers, and all other Powers vested by this Constitution in the Government of the United States, or in any Department or Officer thereof.”

Sounds like they can make law to enable "general welfare" - any law that supports general welfare might be legal...

I would argue general welfare cannot apply to any particular group but must apply to EVERYBODY, generally. So speeding laws, OK. Police Authority? Not ?

The story of the Roman Church...

is the most tragic story ever told. How did a Jewish lawyer from Rome, known as Paul pervert the teachings of Christ by Romanizing and Paganizing them? He was rejected by the Disciples of Christ, never followed Christ Jesus or his teachings, denounced women and advocated a religious hierarchy. Protestant sects have accepted the same teachings.

Fron the eariliest possible Pope, Pius I (144-155 AD) until present times, corruption has reigned. Rape, murder, incest, theft, selling indulgences, corrupting holy scriptures, selling of the papacy, original sin, baptism of infants, burning of the library at Alexandria and other great literary works, invention of a trinity of three Gods to worship and later many saints to pray to, burning witches, paganizing the religion and extermination of non-believers.

How many Popes were later disowned by the Roman Church? 33

Were any of the Popes non-Christian? Yes, at leats four: Marcellinius, Marcellus I, Eusebius and Miltiades were practicing pagans serving from 296 to 314 AD.

With this history, it should surprise no one of today's scandals in the Roman Church.

That may hold true

for outbreaks that have occurred in remote areas where 100 people are infected then die; but not necessarily in a heavily populated area where spreading the virus is much more prevalent. If the new variant has a longer incubation period as stated, then someone can give a false negative when tested, travel to other cities, move among the general population spreading the virus. I think the jury is still out on whether it will burn itself out, but hopefully we will know in a few months, and I certainly hope it does burn itself out.

Ebola Pandemic??? Or the end of the world as we know it ...

Butchart Gardens

is a good one. Victoria, British Columbia.

My confidence level is higher now

I was watching Nigeria closely.
They contained it, despite Patrick Sawyers pre-containment contacts,
flight connections and bizarre behavior.
I have hope.
If they can do it (given their conditions)
we can do it.

It is deadly. It is dangerous.
Sierra Leone and Liberia are proving that.

Luck is still part of my equation..
besides 'just' sanitary conditions and disinfectants.
We need to stay lucky.

I too was raised Catholic

And then left the church in my teens. Although I never "left" God I had a "lapse" of time where He was not my top priority. I strongly feel my life would have been MUCH MUCH better with Him during that time period.
I really commend your reading the bible cover to cover :) I recently did that as well. I read it slowly and humbly and searched out things along the way I did not understand. What an amazing experience. I learned so much and gained such a different perspective on a lot of things because of it. My old Catholic Church always said: "We should let the priests read the Bible for us, because they are the only ones who will be able to understand it fully. Then, they can explain it to us" What a crock. I missed out on so much because of that mindset. I remember all of the statues, pictures of saints and prayers to saints that were present at our church. All I could think of is "what does the first and second commandment say?" There are graven images everywhere! And I don't want to pray to saints!!!!
(Don't mean to offend any Catholics this was my personal experience)

If everything

was in place to make it happen so it would be online for all to see, I think it could actually be done. Do it just the way you said it. Just walk In with equipment and personnel and make the declaration and start installing before they can stop you.

the problem with that analogy is that

Big what if

It hasn't gone airborn though. It doesn't seem likely either. Viruses that kill like this burn themselves out pretty quick because they are too efficient.

During your quest for happiness don't forget to take a few breaks along the way and just be happy :)

Taken out of context

please delete this thread.

What's your problem?

Apparently you have me confused with somebody else.

My concern is

they are not treating it as an airborne virus, thus if it mutates and becomes airborne, how many people will have been infected by the time it has spread. My niece, in a Johns Hopkins public health advanced studies course, told me they won’t be able to control it (“lack of basic public health infrastructure”). She advised not going to Europe for six months which is not reassuring. Personally I will hope for the best so that by January, we will have not seen large fatality numbers, but I remain skeptical about the non-airborne explanation we are being given by the CDC particularly since Canadian researchers have shown that Zaire-Ebola transmitted between pigs and also from pigs to macaques monkeys without direct contact.

Ebola virus's hyper-evolution is unprecedented… could go airborne...

Containment is not possible, Ebola is already airborne

Slander against the Catholic Church?

Not possible. Anything evil you could think of, they have done in the last few hundred years.

"Timid men prefer the calm of despotism to the tempestuous sea of liberty" TJ

I think you might be saying that...

..Catholic priests sodomizing and castrating little boys is just a fashion of the times like the times when the Catholic Church was assisting the Nazi Ustache in murdering 450,000 people. I mean, like, it's OK because everybody is doing it.

Lack of resources

The aid workers in africa do not discard precaution gear (masks, suits,gloves) but rather reuse them. Ive also heard from a friend from Ivory Coast says that the area is ripe with corruption. Aid which is going into the country is taken at entry than sold on the black market.

I just take in all of the info and

do my own thing. Got a great biological suit off ebay...Kappler is the brand to get it seems...
Here is their website...Note some of these suits are $2000..WOW...just looked on their site and they are now addressing ebola on their front page. I went with a way better suit than the one they are showing...
This company knows its suits..
If you search can get one cheap...Here is the one I got, then got mask gloves etc. Super cheap. Why not?
Am I crazy? Maybe? Maybe Not....I just feel that spending $50 on all of this crap in my drawer is worth it...I can always use it to pressure wash or paint...Right?

Haha, I remember that glitch,

Great question/thread LL

So hard to have any favorites when I love them all, but here are two I haven't seen listed yet.

Haena State Park/ Tunnels Beach Kauai

Channel Islands National Park- The islands are beautiful but maybe the best parts are in or on the water. So close to millions of people, yet so far.

My favorite... the next one.

Keep your links

I'll stick with what I know.


at LEAST showed that it can be contained... thank God for that.
With 'luck'...
(and you laid out the '8 days of roaming' pretty well.. good point.)
if they can do it, we can do it.
Lagos would have been a nightmare.
That was my canary... she's still chirping.
Thank God.

Regarding contact to contact... Patrick Sawyer, as a consultant to the Liberian govt had contact with many people prior to his 'final' flight from Monrovia to Lagos... then he had 2 connecting flights before landing..
there was never any 'spread' from/to those contact possibilities (that I'm aware of)...
I'd say we have a 'good' chance of gliding through this one.
I hope.

What did Frodo say when came time to destroy the ring?

"The ring is mine!"

If some think that Rand is neocon-ish now, just wait if and when he becomes president, he has given plenty of hints already...

But I agree, Ron Paul would be Gandalf, he understands the power of the ring.
