I keep livestock. I take tremendous pride in giving them a very comfortable life. They have good shelter, plenty of organic food, clean water and immediate healthcare at the first sign of any illness or injury.
The government keeps taxpayers. They make a big deal of offering subsidized housing, food stamps, water treatment plants and now they even give us Obamacare.
I know why I want my animals to be content. I plan to eat them. I wonder what the government plans for taxpayers?
My view of the world has changed since I got serious about farming. I have come to suspect that the decimation of family farms in this country is because too many farmers will end up asking the same question I am asking.

Former Rep. Ron Paul’s push to audit the Federal Reserve got another boost Wednesday when the House passed the bill for the second time in three years, and by a bigger margin than before.
The bill, now sponsored by Rep. Paul Broun, Georgia Republican, was approved on a 333-92 vote, with all but one Republican and 106 Democrats in favor of it. That’s a major jump from last time, when a majority of Democrats voted against it.
In a story that may make your blood boil over the intrusive nanny state we live in, Kari Anne Roy, a mother of 3, had let her 6 year old son play in the park at the end of the street by himself. The child was in plain view from their house, in a friendly residential neighborhood. However, that isn’t allowed in today’s America, as a “kind” woman brought the child to her door, condescendingly told the mother that her child was playing alone unsupervised and then called the police on her. “See something, say something!” Thanks, Obama!
From Amash's Facebook Page:
What have we learned from the last decade of war?
Those years should have taught us that when going to war, our government must:
(1) be careful when defining a military mission,
(2) speak forthrightly with the American people about the sacrifices they will be called to make,
(3) plan more than one satisfactory end to the conflict, and
(4) be humble about what we think we know.
These lessons should be at the front of our minds when Congress votes today on whether to arm groups in Syria.
Senator John McCain attempted to respond to his very own gaffe by attacking Senator Paul. The comments on the Fox Facebook post are priceless…
“Sen. Paul has obviously been doing some somersaults as these beheadings took place, and the American people's opinion has shifted rather dramatically. He has even said I met with ISIS, which is patently false.”
The top comments are not looking good for John McCain...
The top 'liked' comment is, "Both parties are scared of Rand...I love it!"
I would just like to share a few of my observations from my recent trip to Russia (Moscow and vicinity). These are simply my observations and thoughts and by no means is this an in-depth report/comparison of the US/Russian political systems or societies. We all know that any country has its own unique problems.
That being said, it was eye-opening and even scary to view firsthand the differences between our nations at this point in time. What I saw was in stark contrast to the way Russia is depicted in our media. This being my first trip to Russia, I did not know what to expect.
Arrival (SVO Airport)
1. Entered immigration, NO armed officers, just the average immigration workers. I walked up to a friendly and smiling lady, she stamped my passport and waved me on.
2. Wow, that was easy, I thought, surely customs would be more like the U.S. I approached the customs section, had nothing to declare, I started to take my backpack off to show to the official, but she didn't seem to think I required extra scrutiny and waved me through.
3. That was it, in 10 minutes I was let loose in the "Evil Russian" empire.
4. I walked through the airport, searching for armed police/paramilitary, but I couldn't find any! I saw maybe 1 armed police officer in the airport. Very strange.
5. Maybe it was halftime in the war on terror in Russia. There were no stupid "threat level" announcements or battalions of TSA workers...just a chill airport like you might have seen here in the 60s.
During my stay:
1. I can't stress enough how CLEAN and ornate Moscow is, I was blown away. It was expensive though.
This Appalling Practice Is Only Used in Two Nations—And the US Is One of Them
"The UN has condemned one country for “using extortion, threats of violence” to collect taxes. It then turns a blind eye to another country doing exactly the same thing… but much worse."
During the 60s and 70s one illegal, unconstitutional war tore this nation apart.
Now multiple illegal, endless, unconstitutional wars are commonplace and only a handful of people try to stop them. What happened?
Is it because of the additional 50 years of indoctrination and desensitizing? Was all that outrage expressed during the Vietnam era really a result of the draft? Is this phenomenon another manifestation of embracing a culture of death? What has happened between then and now????
Here is a new chart from Sharelynx showing the correlation of U.S. debt vs. the price of gold.
You'll notice an almost direct correlation between the US debt levels and the price of gold from 2000-2013.
From 2013 through the present, however, that correlation has diverted significantly.
2013 was the year when massive naked short selling of gold began taking place.

Uupdate: There is confusion in the comments about this post. This post is about finding the "USER" of this tower. The "OWNER" (not user), as you read the post, will become known to you as Berkley Group, LLC. Their website, does not tell you who the USER of the tower is. That's what we're trying to find out. We already have technical information on the tower as well. We are trying to figure out who the USER is.
In the past year, anybody who has ever driven on I-485 between the Providence Rd. and Rea Rd. exits in Charlotte, NC have noticed this:
The now iconic white Toyota trucks we see ISIS™ driving around look scarily familiar to ones purchased here in the states and outfitted by special forces which puts to rest the notion that ISIS™ simply ran up to a dealership in Iraq and made off with 30 or so vehicles. They aren’t even SOLD in Iraq and certainly not with these modifications. At least not as an entire fleet.
