We have the Big Berkey and love it.
Kurt Wallace: This is Kurt Wallace — and our guest today on Rare is Adrian Wyllie, Libertarian candidate for governor of Florida. And, Adrian Wyllie, thanks for being with us today on Rare.
Adrian Wyllie: My pleasure, Kurt. Good to be here.
Kurt Wallace: Let’s talk about the governor’s race. Your opponents are going at it pretty hard. We have the newest fiasco of “Fan-gate” at the debate that you were going to be in – and, then, you weren’t allowed to be in.
The Gold Silver Ratio
October 23, 2014 Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin spent the early part of the 2014 midterms traveling the country endorsing conservative candidates in Republican primary races, hoping to leave her mark on the future of the GOP.
We are happy to report on our continued progress as people begin voting for their representative for Colorado's third congressional district! This week we had an ad in a publication based in the San Luis Valley, and I just returned from speaking to three classes of junior and senior students at Vail Christian High School - this is the greatest honor - reaching the next generation who will have many challenges, but also, many opportunities.
October 22, 2014 Sen. Rand Paul is summoning his top strategists and political advisers to Washington one week after the November election for a strategy session over his widely expected 2016 presidential bid.
The gathering of Paul's top lieutenants in the nation's capital has been quietly organized by Doug Stafford, his chief political strategist, who began reaching out to key figures in Paul's political world earlier this month, multiple sources told National Journal.
"War is a racket. It always has been. It is possibly the oldest, easily the most profitable, surely the most vicious. It is the only one international in scope. It is the only one in which the profits are reckoned in dollars and the losses in lives." - Major General Smedley Darlington Butler
White house is
White they tell us
God damn lies
Red in fact it is
Blood demons swim in
Within its walls
The truth naked for all to see!
The planet we call earth gave births
To many rivers and oceans
The United States government isn’t going to legalize gold and silver as legal tender anytime soon, so gold bugs in the U.S. will have to live vicariously through the citizens of Switzerland. If the current polls are accurate it looks like gold lovers across the globe could soon be celebrating a small victory with the people of Switzerland.
Mark O’Byrne fills us in on the latest new from Switzerland as reported by the Swiss newspaper 20 Minuten and translated to English on Lew Rockwell’s website:
Can the state seize a private home simply because it wants to?
By Amity Shlaes | National Journal
Sometime soon Judge Julio Mendez, of New Jersey’s Superior Court, will decide whether a 67-year-old piano tuner named Charlie Birnbaum gets to keep his house.
New Jersey’s mighty Casino Reinvestment Development Authority has invoked eminent domain to take the Birnbaum property. The modest Atlantic City “three-flat” is on Oriental Avenue, a name readers will know from the board game Monopoly. But the Birnbaum home sits in the shadow of a big new mega-casino far too recent to be represented on any board game: the Revel. CRDA has claimed the Birnbaum house not for any specific purpose but just so that its land will be available for any future plans that CRDA or its business partners, which include Revel and other casinos, might dream up.
Developers and public authorities claim a basis for this eminent-domain confiscation in the Fifth Amendment to the Constitution, which reads, “nor shall private property be taken for public use, without just compensation.” Most Americans have a standard concept of what that means: citizens move out and the government builds something that the government owns and everyone uses, such as a road. Perhaps the government fixes up a very poor neighborhood so middle-class people can live there. But over the decades, the definition of “public use” has been stretched like a rubber band. What’s scarcely ever reported is how infrequently development or urban improvement, the usual pretext for such confiscations, actually benefits the public. Few examples highlight the extent of the abuse better than this 35-by-80-foot property on Oriental Avenue.

Rand Paul, whose foreign policy views have become a frequent target of his GOP critics, will use a high-profile speech in New York on Thursday to urge the United States to exercise restraint when engaging in wars overseas.
At a dinner hosted by the Center for the National Interest, the libertarian-minded Kentucky senator, a potential White House contender in 2016, will argue for “limits” on U.S. engagement in military conflicts. It’s a view that runs counter to the hawks among his fellow Republicans who have called for a more aggressive American presence in hot spots in the Middle East.
“America shouldn’t fight wars where the best outcome is stalemate,” Paul plans to say, according to excerpts provided by his office. “America shouldn’t fight wars when there is no plan for victory. America shouldn’t fight wars that aren’t authorized by the American people, by Congress. America should and will fight wars when the consequences — intended and unintended — are worth the sacrifice.”
