Apparently not all city councils are thrilled with the idea of their local police department driving around “protecting” their streets with mine resistant, ambush protected vehicles straight off the battlefields in Iraq and Afghanistan.
The city council of Davis, California, a town of about 66,000 people near Sacramento, has now adopted a resolution to “tank the tank” as one protester put it, after a large crowd of concerned citizens showed up to the meeting. CBS13 reports:

In this episode of the Lions of Liberty Podcast, I welcome Lions of Liberty contributing writer - and Daily Paul's own! - Derrel Walters to the show! Derrel describes how he first became acquainted with the ideas of liberty and how he approaches discussing politics with others. Derrel and I discuss the importance of individual rights, how people might organize in a society that respects and understands them, and how we can change the world through peaceful and logical advocacy for liberty.
Russia has now officially begun selling oil to China without using the U.S. dollar as the trade medium. This is the latest step in the death of the pero dollar, and a big step in the end of the U.S. Dollar as a reserve currency.
When that happens the remaining 3% of the dollars original value will be wiped out, and financial collapse will occur.
The writing is on the wall, all we need do is to read it!
I have not been paying close attention to politics for a while now. I have not even had regular internet access for several months. While the local paper is very prompt about letting me know who went to Ontario to go shopping or who had a grandchild up for a visit, they really don't cover much news beyond this little corner of the world. Before delving into the summer on the farm, I had heard rumor of ruckus at the State Convention a "floor fight." Of course "Ron Paul" or his supporters are never mentioned, we are lumped in with "TEA Party" (which sort of gets under my skin...
An inspector with the Michigan Department of Agriculture and Rural Development threatened members of a herdshare with arrest in July. Author of Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Food Rights and The Raw Milk Revolution gives some advice on how to deal with intimidation from agricultural bureaucrats.
The two greatest upward price forces known to man, an asset bubble and a genuine commodity shortage, appear set to combine in silver. Either one, alone, would have a profound impact on the price, but the combination seems both inevitable and almost impossible to contemplate in terms of how high the price of silver could be driven. And it’s hard to see how intense investment buying wouldn’t trip off industrial user attempted inventory stockpiling or vice versa; it doesn’t matter which comes first.
A MULTIMILLIONAIRE sports catering CEO has been caught on tape abusing and beating a defenceless puppy.
Des Hague was in the elevator of a Vancouver apartment building when he repeatedly kicked the terrified Doberman in the stomach as the terrified dog cowered against the wall.
The sickening surveillance video shows Hague yanking hard on the dog’s leash, pulling it up sharply around its neck, causing the animal to choke.
Hague is the head of Centerplate, a $6 billion-dollar company which provides snacks at sports and entertainment arenas — including the New Orleans Superdome and Levi’s Stadium in San Francisco — across the US.

As the murderous, terrorist Islamic State continues to threaten Iraq, the region and potentially the United States, it is vitally important that we examine how this problem arose. Any actions we take today must be informed by what we've already done in the past, and how effective our actions have been.
Shooting first and asking questions later has never been a good foreign policy. The past year has been a perfect example.
Left-leaning American politicos often complain about the political activities of the “evil” Koch brothers. They argue that George and David Koch use their disproportionate wealth to bend the American political system to suit their will. However, mainstream media outlets rarely point out the types of causes that the duo advocate for with their hard-earned wealth.

We finally got a swarm of bees this spring! I put the lovely Warre hive boxes that hawkiye made to use at last! When the time came to add a box, I was living on the farm in the RV, the only bee book I had was "Beekeeping For Dummies" (a much loved and used gift!) and I just flipped to the page about adding a box. I went out and put the empty box on top of the full one. OK, my husband put it on top, but I was the one who said to do it. It had only been there a few days before I remembered that is one of the differences with Warre boxes, and we went to move it. Too late.

Do we have the Internet we deserve? There’s an argument to say that yes, we absolutely do. Given web users’ general reluctance to pay for content. We are of course, paying. Just not with cold hard cash, but with our privacy — as digital business models rely on gathering and selling intel on their users to make the money to pay (the investors who paid) for the free service.
Users are also increasingly paying with time and attention, as more ad content — and more adverts masquerading as, infiltrating and degrading content — thrusts its way in front of our eyeballs in ever more insidious ways. Whether it’s repurposing our friends’ photos and endorsements to socially engineer selling us stuff, or resorting to other background tracking and targeting tricks to divert our attention from whatever it was we were actually trying to do online.
