Let's correlate Barack Hussein's announcement of the Third Iraq War with stock prices of the biggest weapons manufacturers. Did stock prices surge on the threat of enormous war profits? Generally, yes. But then stocks generally sunk lower than pre-announcement prices. Why? Could it be that investors don't trust Obama as their Warlord-in-Chief?

It wouldn’t be Friday without a teen facing two years of jailtime for taking sexually compromising photos with a Jesus statue and then posting them on Facebook would it? Of course it wouldn’t.
KRON4 reports that the photos were taken and uploaded in July in front of the “Love in the Name of Christ” Christian organization in his hometown of Everett.
Which action do you think should be penalized more harshly, punching a woman in the face or carrying a handgun as a means of self-defense?
If you guessed punching a woman in the face, then you would not be in line with the authorities in Atlantic County, New Jersey. A judge and prosecutor are pursuing a much harsher punishment for the victimless crime of carrying a gun than the disgraceful crime of a man, caught on video, punching a woman in the face.
Got a big surprise when I watched this video. Then again, I'm a Yankee, so what would I know about it? Turns out that "Rebel Yell" isn't at all what I'd heard it to be. Sounds more like a Native American shout to me, as one of the comments below the video pointed out. Not that this matters but, I thought it was interesting. What do you think?
2500 CIVIL WAR VETERANS MEET AT GETTYSBURG, 1938:
By BRUCE ACKERMAN SEPT. 11, 2014
PRESIDENT OBAMA’s declaration of war against the terrorist group known as the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria marks a decisive break in the American constitutional tradition. Nothing attempted by his predecessor, George W. Bush, remotely compares in imperial hubris.
I have never seen the TSA request for a full body patdown or additional screening AFTER the passenger has landed. It is amazing how incompetent they are.
Also, I am new here and can't get the youtube Embed to work...
I wanted to thank everyone who offered their prayers, thoughts, and kind words. Including Nonna, Michael and many, many others.
My mom didn't beat the cancer. She passed away on Sunday and her funeral was today. I am at a loss for words, which as most here know is a rare condition for me.
She was truly one of the absolute most important people in my life.
I prepared her funeral, as she requested, but still feel like I didn't do enough.
I am so glad I came to be with her in the end, but I wish it hadn't been the end.
Spend every moment as your last. Make sure that every moment is what you want because there are a finite number of moments in this life, but, most are wasted.
Don't waste any. Don't try to change the world.
EdinNY's poem Waking Up called to mind Bay Area artist Remo Conscious's 2006 song Lies, which I first heard as the closing credits rolled on Loose Change.From that short snip, I was captivated by the music and lyrics and quickly found the song, artist, and the album Infiltration.
The internet still felt new, an incredible sharing tool for documentaries like Loose Change, artists like Remo Conscious, and statesmen like Ron Paul.
I bought the CD from Remo's website. It came in a hand addressed envelope, with a short handwritten note of thanks from the artist. We had a short correspondence and let him know how important his music was to me. I listened to Infiltration intently through 2007 as I was building the Daily Paul and watching Ron Paul on the debate stage. The message and the music of that entire album is embedded into the DNA of this site.
My wife and I just bought 200 ounces two days ago. Now it appears that silver is at the low for the year! I've never seen it drop below $18 something for the past couple years so... maybe I need to get another 100 while it is still on sale. Is anyone else excited to stack this week?
This may have been posted here before but I couldn't find a thread on it. Plus, it is so relevant to what is happening today. Warning- possible demon (or John Wayne? maybe Elvis?) flashed on screen?
WTH is going on at the 1:41 mark of this first video? This guy wants to know as well...
OR... is it John McCain?
Civil forfeiture is a little-known legal device that allows law enforcement officials to take your property, sell it and pocket the proceeds—even if you have done nothing wrong.
The most terrifying place in Philadelphia is Courtroom 478 in City Hall. This is where property owners enter Philadelphia’s Civil Forfeiture Machine.
Viva la Liberty!
The crickets are singing tonight. The kids are laughing and playing. It is so beautiful to have peace.
I hope you are all well, and the spirit of truth is in your heart.
In an article today former 10th District U.S. Rep. Chris Carney, said, "The threat from self-radicalized Americans is growing, and this threat may be even more insidious than the threat from foreign terrorists."
Who do you think he is describing here?
