We woke up to a different world on Tuesday, August 3, 2010. With barely any notice, the autism community heard that the U.S. Senate Subcommittee on Children's Health would be holding a hearing entitled, "State of Research on Potential Environmental Health Factors with Autism and Related Neurodevelopment Disorders."
As someone who follows autism in the news, this was a shock. I'm used to stories like the recent series published on the Psychology Today blog by Dr. James Coplan. He couldn't make it any clearer. Autism is something that has always been around--we've just expanded the definition and doctors are better at recognizing it. The numbers haven't increased.
One Year. It's been a great one and a long one.
It was about one year ago that your encouragement – your kind words and your financial support – helped convince me that the time was right to run for United States Senate in Kentucky.
It is no exaggeration to say that I would not be here without your help. No one expected this. Heck, I tell the story that when my wife Kelley asked me about the race, I said don’t worry, there’s only about a 10% chance I’ll win!
You helped prove that wrong. Of course, Kelley will tell you she knew that was wrong from the beginning. She – and you – had great faith in what we could accomplish.
One year later we arrive where we started – whether or not I win this race will largely depend on the help of those who love Liberty. The statists, trial lawyers, union bosses and special interests have made my race the top target in the country. My opponent has written himself hundreds of thousands of dollars in checks and can do it again.
For this reason, I am writing to you today to once again ask for your help.
I hope you’ve seen that I’m not just a run-of-the-mill Republican or even conservative. I come from the Liberty movement, the Tea Parties and the grassroots. I have listened to and helped amplify their concerns. My campaign is not being run so I can become part of some club in Washington DC.
I want to go to Washington because Washington is BROKEN. The system is corrupt and steals our freedom and tax dollars.
I will go there to fight for balanced budgets and term limits. I will fight every day for the Constitution, to return our country to the sound principles upon which it was founded. I will look at EVERY federal agency and regulation to see if it is Constitutional and whether we can afford to keep doing it.
I am serious about the task in front of me, committed to fighting for our shared values, and eager to get to work.
But first, we have 80 more days to win a political race. You and I both know what that means.
I must once again ask for your help. Please join our moneybomb next Thursday and Friday, August 19 and 20th. You can pledge today at
This is our best opportunity in a generation to make real progress by having a champion of Liberty in the U.S. Senate. Please once again consider helping me get there through your hard work and generous donation.

I don't want to get ahead of myself, but I can't help it.
EDIT: LOOKS LIKE IT IS GAME ON PEOPLE!!!
The words "hope" and "change", have pretty much been destroyed by the current administration.
"Hope for America" just isn't going to cut it.

"Last chance to get it right America"
by Ron Paul
It has been months now since the new healthcare reform bill was passed into law. This massive piece of legislation was passed with a sense of urgency so acute that leadership declared America could not afford to wait until legislators, their staff and the general public had time to thoroughly read the bill.
"A Border Patrol agent questioned Anderson about his citizenship but he refused to answer, saying it was his constitutional right to remain silent. After he wouldn't move to a secondary inspection area, Anderson says a state police officer and Border Patrol agents broke both windows of his car, shocked him with a stun gun, dragged him out and slammed him onto the ground."
Since, his life has been turned upside down, but on Friday, August 13, 2010, he was acquitted of all charges by a jury of his peers.
Local story (blip)
The Federal Reserve is undertaking a "dangerous gamble" by keeping rates at near zero for so long, and must start raising rates or risk damaging the nascent U.S. recovery, a top Federal Reserve official said on Friday.
"To be clear, I am not advocating a tight monetary policy," Kansas City Reserve Bank President Thomas Hoenig said in the text of a speech to the Lincoln, Neb., Chamber of Commerce. "I am advocating a policy that remains accommodative but slowly firms as the economy itself expands and moves toward more balance."
Hoenig has been the lone dissenter on the Fed's policysetting panel, which on Tuesday repeated the U.S. central bank's pledge to keep interest rates extraordinarily low for an "extended period."

"When I count from zero to five, you will become wide awake and feeling great; your vision will be clear, your consciousness will easily decode this illusory matrix, your humanity will return, and your fierce determination to be a free sovereign individual will be fully restored.
Zero...one...two...three...four...FIVE. Wakey, wakey, wide awake and feeling great!
Okay, you're awake, back among the human tribe. Now what? You are not alone in wondering what is the best way to fight the globalists. There is a vastly growing human tribe that understands your frustration of feeling like a helpless fly caught in an inescapable spider web. It can seem defeating the more we learn about the criminal nature of the ruling elite; their plans, their desire to have absolute control, and their infrastructure that's darn near complete to achieve their goals. However, there is an incredibly easy solution and powerful weapon for defeating the elite -- it's called local food."
