RONAN FARROW, MSNBC: John McCain reaching for the worst possible insult for President Obama earlier this year said this: "I have never seen anything like this in my life. I thought Jimmy Carter was bad, but he pales in comparison to this president in my opinion." The serious question is, what does is it feel like, and what is your response to, these moments of being used as an insult? Your legacy being used as an insult.
PRESIDENT JIMMY CARTER: That's a compliment to come from a war monger... I was lucky enough when I was president to keep our country at peace, and provide peace for others. I was lucky enough to go through my four years, we never shot a bullet or dropped a bomb or fired a missile.

While America Looks The Other Way: Obama secretly extends US combat operation in Afghanistan
November 22, 2014
President Barack Obama has secretly signed an order that expands the United States’ direct combat role in Afghanistan throughout 2015, the New York Times reported.
Signed over the last few weeks, the secret order permits American forces to continue to battle the Taliban and other militants that pose a threat to either the Afghan government or US personnel. According to the Times, US jets, bombers, and drones will be able to aid ground troops – be they Afghan or US forces – in whatever mission they undertake.
A Bright Sun Is Gonna Shine
Changing the world for your future and mine,
Surely, a bright Sun is gonna shine,
The prophet of doom has always been wrong,
Likewise the balladeer's funeral song,
We're gaining momentum; we're moving along,
Unafraid of Leviathan, he's not so strong.
Our movement is spreading throughout the whole Earth,
It's a re-awakening; it's a rebirth,
We demand peace abroad and peace within,
False flags will no longer sucker us in,
Filling every thought and every breath,
Saying "yes!" to liberty and "no!" to death.
We can't be stopped; we're standing tall,
Ahhhhhhh....the plot thickens.
I wanted to share this little incident with you guys.
One day After tuning my motorcycle up I jumped out on the highway and cranked it up.
I did a little weaving and a little speeding and after about four miles I saw in my mirror a cop right on my butt.
Scared the crap out of me because I had reached 110 mph about a min before I saw him. So I immediately pulled over. He approached me and I expected the worst of course. He layed Into me hard. Yelling at me, "Are you some kind of freekin' idiot man? I saw you about five miles back go on the exit and then swerve back into traffic, that is so dangerous and stupid. It's not even so much the speeding but the swerving in and out. This is obviously not the place for that."
Me nodding, "I know, I know."
Like countless artists before him, San Diego-based rapper Brandon Duncan's new album features a picture of a gun and bullets on its front cover. However Duncan, who raps under the name Tiny Doo, could be the first artist to go to jail for his choice of album art.
Duncan faces 25-years-to-life on gang conspiracy charges brought against him this week, according to the Los Angeles Times. Prosecutors will reportedly look to prove that the album art "willfully promotes, furthers, or assists in any felonious criminal conduct by members of that gang."
"That gang" refers to the San Diego Lincoln Park gang, of which Duncan is a member, according to San Diego police. According to the Times, at least 15 Lincoln Park gang members have been charged in a recent string of shootings in the city.
Some of you might be thinking, “Brett, why should I learn how to pick a lock if I don’t plan on breaking into people’s homes?”
There are a few good reasons why law-abiding citizens should learn how to pick a lock:
In the latest state-led move to curb National Security Agency spying, the Utah legislature advanced a bill this week to turn off the water to NSA’s massive data gathering facility in Bluffdale, which uses more than $30,000 taxpayer dollars-worth of water every month.
Now this was a police brutality video that I actually enjoyed watching for once.
Do you care, and if so, why?
I'm not sure I care. Especially as an open-borders and no or tiny federal government type. The issue for me is welfare, not "illegal" immigration. I also fully support violating immoral laws and most laws today are immoral. Illegal immigrants create no victims, and if there's no victim then there's no crime. And as most of us on here know - end the stolen handouts and it's suddenly a moot point.
Anyway, I'm curious what ya'll think.

In America today just like in Lake Woebegone every child is above average and every child gets a trophy. We may score low in international grade comparisons but we rank number one in self-esteem. In other words American students may not be doing well but they think they are. Those of us old enough to remember how Dad could control the situation with a look and when you got in trouble in school your parents didn’t sue or contact the School Board you got in trouble at home too are also old enough to remember Watergate.
This scandal that the general public still does not understand brought down a president and led to the Watergate Congress which threw away the victory in Vietnam and solidified the Progressive control of Congress until 1994. Today we are confronted with contempt for the Constitution and the rule of law that makes the Watergate Scandal look like the tempest in a teapot that it actually was. How many people died as a result of the Watergate Scandal = 0. How many have died as a result of the Fast and Furious debacle = at least 200 and still counting including an American law enforcement officer. How did Richard Nixon disrespect, disregard or violate the Constitution in the Watergate Scandal = 0 (although his use of Executive privilege did spark a constitutional crisis). How many times has Barack Obama disrespected, disregarded or violated the Constitution during his time in office = at least twice as documented below by making recess appointments while Congress was still in session and refusing to enforce laws.
There is an old saying, “That’s good enough for government work.” This saying comes out of the big government make-work programs of the 1930s and has been used ever since as short hand for “Approximate is close enough,” which might as well be the new national motto. In societies that rob Peter to pay Paul the stage before all the Peters change their names to Paul is typified by government bean counters picking winners and losers. This process discourages producers and encourages non-producers assuring you get less of the former and more of the latter. As an educator I have a belief that if you don’t teach someone to do something right you are teaching them that doing it wrong is acceptable.
