Mitch McConnell at CPAC on ObamaCare: We Lost

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell has some news for Paul Ryan and House Republicans: Obamacare is here to stay.

The Kentucky Senator, famous for declaring his party's narrow intent to make Barack Obama a "one-term president," veered from his colleagues' long-held stance that undoing the Affordable Care Act — a.k.a Obamacare — is politically feasible, even after the package passed in March 2010, was upheld by the Supreme Court in June 2012, and its namesake was re-elected on November 6.

"When it came to Obamacare, we gave it everything we have, everything we have, and we just lost," McConnell told his audience at the Conservative Political Action Conference on Friday morning.

US/Afghanistan Dispute: US wants prisoners held even if they can't be convicted. Afghans want due process.

Dispute over high-risk prisoners threatens to disrupt U.S.-Afghan talks

By Karen DeYoung and Kevin Sieff, for The Washington Post | March 14, 2013

*Suggestion* Add comments to the Washington Post article. It looks like there are some people starting to wake up over there. Spread your liberty ideas far and wide on these mainstream rags. The writers DO read many of the comments and will tailor their stuff to what public likes lots of the time...unless you outright slam all the Dems, but they will listen to antiwar views.

A dispute over the fate of about three dozen militants held by U.S. forces in Afghanistan has disrupted negotiations over a long-term security agreement to leave U.S. troops in the country after 2014.

The United States has refused to turn over the prisoners — deemed especially dangerous compared with more than 3,000 already transferred to Afghan control — unless President Hamid Karzai guarantees they will not be released. He has so far declined.

As tensions have risen in recent days, Karzai has accused the United States of breaking an agreement on the transfers. On Tuesday, he warned that his government might move to take over the U.S.-supervised prison at Bagram air base where they are held. During a visit last weekend by Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel, Karzai accused the United States of torturing Afghan civilians and colluding with the Taliban to prolong the war.

Classic Ron Paul: Lost Tape from the Morton Downey Jr. Show

LOVE this clip - I'd never seen it before! Downey smoking ON AIR! This chick... she's a plant... anybody recognize her? But wait until 2:40 - Doc GOES OFF on the petunia.

I sure wish he'd have brought up the Franklin Scandal, but this is some eye popping truth! The look on his face when the audience starts their ignorant chant... I am SO GLAD he lived to see US - cheering "End The Fed" had to be pretty sweet for our guy!

Feinstein: "Do they need a Bazooka?!?" - The eminently reasonable answer may surprise you...

It has been well established that the original intent of the 2nd amendment was to enable the people to defend against tyranny which invariably comes in the form of an overbearing and oppressive government. This right to defense is not special to Americans and is a natural right of all peoples.

In the 70s and 80's the Afghani militia (the mujahideen) was engaged against tyranny (Soviets). In order to aid them in their fight against their oppressors, the US sent Stinger shoulder mounted rocket launchers so they could wage an asymmetrical battle against the much better equipped Soviet forces.

Therefore our own government established the precedent that, in the age of a modern military, rocket launchers (Bazookas) fall within the scope of weapons necessary for citizen militias fighting against tyranny - inadvertently making the case that they should be covered under the 2nd amendment.

The perfect slave

The perfect slave needs no shackles, he has been conditioned to think that he is free.

The perfect slave reasons away his slavery, by continuously arguing the degree of his enslavement.

The perfect slave defends the slave master, because the master lets him sit on his porch to keep an eye on the other slaves.

The perfect slave is so easily manipulated by his superstition, because the slave master understands the nature of man.

It is very simple: Give the slaves drama and diversion so they can easily be divided and conquered. Let them tear each other down, while they are being raped and pillaged by the slave master.

Let the slaves think they are in control by letting them vote for a new master.

Conservatives urging Rand Paul to run for president

Frustrated that the last two Republican presidential candidates weren't believable conservatives, key right-leaning activists, donors and policy experts in Washington are already coalescing around Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul three years before the 2016 election, a huge head start meant to ward off competitors such as Wisconsin Sen. Scott Walker and Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal.

"He's the package who is a conservative who means it," said one of those involved.
