Hilarious video that my neocon sister emailed me. Maybe she is beginning to understand the absurdity of Homeland Security.
(NaturalNews) Giffords was assaulted while doing what more representatives in Washington should be doing: Talking with their constituents at home in a public place, right out in the open. In an age where many members of Congress hide behind closed doors and spend more time meeting with corporate lobbyists than talking with their constituents, Giffords regularly took time to talk to the people she sought to represent in Washington.
The sad fallout from this shooting in Tucson is that more members of Congress are now going to hide behind closed doors and refuse to interact with the public. There are psychos out there, after all.
But where did all the psychos come from?
Why Congress bears some responsibility for America's epidemic of mental illness
Congress bears a tremendous responsibility for creating those psychos in the first place, and that's where this story takes a turn for the ugly. How could such a claim be true? Read on...
It is Congress that has allowed the FDA to continue censoring the science behind nutritional supplements while pushing psychiatric drugs on children, for example. Did you know that vitamin D deficiency promotes schizophrenia? (http://www.naturalnews.com/003069.html)
Did you know that most of the school shootings in the United States involve young males with a history of psychiatric drug use?
Did you know that SSRI drugs (antidepressants) often promote violent thoughts, especially in young males? (http://www.naturalnews.com/020787.html)
With all the media hype about the shooting of a Congresswoman, understandably so...
...she is still alive, but a federal judge is dead.
If a federal judge was murdered by a gunman on any other day, it would have been even BIGGER news. Especially if he was pro-abortion. However, this was a disposable federal judge. Not worthy of mention. Judge John Roll was the leading judicial voice supporting Sheriff Richard Mack's Tenth Amendment lawsuit against the Feds. Sheriff Mack has stated that Judge Roll was by far the best Federal Judge in the U.S. (Constitutionally speaking).
So good riddance, I suppose. No discussion about his character, his grieving family, his service or his case rulings. Besides, his being pro-gun might not sync with the tea party label which was so readily applied to the murderer kook.
Judge John McCarthy Roll...A Patriot who upheld the Constitution by helping to defeat portions of the illegal federal power grab, known as the Brady Bill.
Aloha all my DP friends :)
I'm running a raffle to boost attendance to CPAC. I blogged about it over at RPFs. I was talking to Nystrom the other day and he reminded me to come on over here and make a post. My GF took a great pic of the prize you can see above and at:
I updated the blog because Tom Woods just messaged me to let me know he is donating a signed copy of Nullification to sweeten the pot. Even if you cannot make it, or have already bought tickets, you can still enter the raffle by sponsoring others to go. Details are in the blog.
Thanks, and I hope to see many of you there :)

The accompanying graph provides a visual representation of the recognition rate and the net favorable score for each of 13 potential GOP candidates included in the survey. A cluster of four candidates -- Huckabee, Romney, Gingrich, and Palin -- is located in the upper right-hand quadrant of the graph. These are the clear leaders in terms of both recognition and image at this time. Texas Rep. Ron Paul is less well known than these four, but still better known than all other candidates measured.
Bank industry expert Chris Whalen is the subject of a good interview with CNBC coming conveniently in the aftermath of the possibly earth-moving Ibanez decision out of Massachusetts.
First, he says, the ruling has been misunderstood in that the homeowners are ultimately not going to win loan forgiveness merely because of errors in the handling of the loan.
But that doesn't mean serious losses aren't coming with devastating consequences.
AUSTIN, Texas — A judge ordered former U.S. House Majority Leader Tom DeLay to serve three years in prison Monday for his role in a scheme to illegally funnel corporate money to Texas candidates in 2002.
The sentence comes after a jury in November convicted DeLay on charges of money laundering and conspiracy to commit money laundering.
That's the title, it may be higher, it may be lower. Our tax dollars hard at work.
The shooting tragedy in Arizona has absolutely nothing to do with the conservative movement.
NY TIMES: To critics, it is a Hail Mary play — an admission that the economy’s persistent weakness has all but exhausted the central bank’s powers and tested the limits of its policy making. Around the world, some warn the unusual strategy will weaken the dollar and lead to crippling inflation.
The large group of freshman House Republicans is facing tremendous pressure over an impending vote to raise the nation's debt ceiling, according to libertarian Rep. Ron Paul (R-Texas).
Paul — who opposes raising the $14.3 trillion debt ceiling — predicted that the majority of new Republicans would be convinced to vote to lift it when it comes up this spring.
Transparency and Accountability for the Federal Reserve!
by Ron Paul
Last week, the 112th Congress was sworn in. I am pleased that I will be chairing the Monetary Policy Subcommittee of the Financial Services Committee which has oversight of the Federal Reserve. Obviously, this position will facilitate my efforts to ensure the Fed provides the American people with more information about what they have been doing with and to our money.
Not surprisingly, since my chairmanship was announced, apologists for the Fed have been recycling the old canard about how increased transparency threatens the Fed's so-called political independence. By 'independence' they are referring to the Fed's ability to greatly impact the economy with virtually no meaningful oversight. We only recently learned that the bankers at the Fed were able to use the latest financial crisis to bail out Wall Street cronies and foreign central banks with billions of dollars that were created and wasted instead of appropriated and voted on by representatives of the people. The Fed and its supporters in the Congress vehemently fought even this small bit of transparency and without this one-time provision in the Financial Reform Act forcing disclosure we would still not have this information.
Note this post is not yet complete. I am typing this from my phone at the Las Vegas airport and will finish as soon as I get home.
Well I am sitting at the airport right now coming home from the consumer electronics show. I just got through airport security and they are now making EVERYONE go through the XRAY machines. I opted out and went for the full groping. Many people were opting out. This is the first time I have seen everyone guided to the xray machines. Kinda freaked me out. The TSA guy was giving me the rules and I could not keep my mouth shut. I said I can't believe this as he was feeling me all over. He then said to me real quiet "I would never put my family through those machines". I was shocked. He also stated "you will not see any more metal detectors in a couple weeks, everyone will have to be scanned". After hearing that I my mind was racing. I said no more. I just wanted to yell "Nazi police state is here" but I went on my way.
Now to the show......
The CES is the biggest electronic show in the world. I have been coming to this show for years. This year had the largest attendance in history. It was very packed. This show showcases all of the new technology that is coming out in the future. The show gives you a heads up on the way things are going. These are the things that blew me away and stood out.
