This year’s Conservative Political Action Conference has had something of a deflated feeling floating about it. The crowds are smaller, the panels are fewer, and the entire enterprise has a sneaking feeling of being scrimped on. For Rand Paul, however, CPAC was bigger and better than ever.
Rand Paul beats 2nd place finisher Ted Cruz by a whopping 20 points in the 2014 CPAC straw poll.
Other results included in polling:
*Most important issue to Conservatives (Gov't, get out of our lives!)
*Marijuana decriminalization & legalization
Daylight saving time (DST) is about to start, and an interesting thing that you might not realise is how such a small shift in our time can have a large impact on our body clock and our health.
These negative impacts of daylight saving time even cost us real money in lost productivity.
DST starts at 2:00 a.m. (the clock gets turned forward to 3:00 a.m.) on the second Sunday in March and ends at 2:00 a.m. (the clock gets turned back to 1:00 a.m.) on the first Sunday of November.
"You May think I'm talking about electing Republicans. I'm not. I'm talking about electing lovers of Liberty."
~Rand Paul, CPAC Straw Poll winner 2014.

"There are things you expect to see at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) and there are things you don't. One of the things you probably don't is an audience cheering and applauding arguments for legalizing pot and bemoaning the war on drugs.
So the DP went down yesterday and more than ever before I was struck that we're not an informational site, this is our communication platform. Mike's site, our bi-directional communication platform.
Pretty much all the cool business deals I have hooked into for months upon months have all come from the DP or come about because of it and there have been some real neat ones.
Our latest is called cryptoSpheric and it's a bitcoin crowd funding plugin for Wordpress. Here's the story of how it came to be.
The list of dual citizens goes on and on,,,,,to learn their ties go to web site,,,, U.S. Federal Gun Control Legislation, 1968 – present
1968: The Gun Control Act of 1968 comes from Congressman Emanuel Celler’s House bill H.R.17735. It expands legislation already attempted by the non-Jewish Senator Thomas Dodd. America’s biggest and most far-reaching gun law came from a Jew.
