A fresh start! What will you do today?

It's a beautiful October morning here in Michigan. As I drive across I-94 to Kalamazoo I'm noticing the awesome colors of the changing trees. Just driving and thinking about my family, my job , my friends, the people I interact with, and all the other stuff packed in my skull from yesterday and beyond.

Long story short, I'm thinking of ways I can change my life today for the better. Was thinking about even the small things that help make life more fulfilling, meaningful and with purpose. Life is but a blink and every move counts.

(CNSNews.com) - The Federal Bureau of Land Management (BLM) recently paid $98,670 for the purchase and installation of an outhouse at the Swede Park Trail Head in Alaska.

The purchase includes a single-vault Romtec 1011 "Aspen Single" prefabricated waterless toilet and its installation at the parking area for the trail head.

KJ Mushovic of the BLM tells CNSNews.com, “Almost half of it (contract expense) is for the cost of the toilet.”

I Say 'SHUT Down' The Congress! I Am So Freaking Annoyed With All BULLSXXX!

I Say 'SHUT Down' The Congress! I Am So Freaking Annoyed With All BULLSHIT!

I'm sick of Harry 'The Mad Hatter' Reid lying about how its the 'Tea Party' Republicans fault.

I'm sick of Ted Cruz telling the talking heads on the boob tube how wonderful Barack Obama was to allow the soldiers to get their pay.

There isn't anything Barack Obama does that is great or wonderful or thoughtful.

I'm sick and tired of Nancy Pelosi's blinking eyed lies about how wonderful Obamacare is going to be. IT SUCKS and SHE SUCKS!

From a volunteer for Obama, to a pro-life Republican

In the 2012 film Restless Heart, which tells the life story of the father of modern Western philosophy, St. Ambrose tells St. Augustine: "It's not the man who finds the truth, it's the truth that finds the man: because the Truth is a person. It's Jesus Christ, the Son of God."

Power Companies Fight to Charge for Solar Use

Utilities, Solar Companies in Fight Over Rates
By RAY HENRY and JONATHAN FAHEY, Associated Press
October 1, 2013 (AP)

Sunlight is free, but if you use it to make electricity your power company wants you to pay.

Utilities in many states say solar-friendly rate plans, conceived to promote alternative energy sources, are too generous and allow solar customers to avoid paying for the grid even though they use it.

*Let's get our old spunk back*

So I've been reading posts that Manystrom has been commenting in and it's made me quite nostalgic for the early days of The DP. I think one of the most exciting things about the early days was when one of us would come up with an idea to "do" something to promote Dr. Paul and we would all just run with it. Sign waves, Money bombs, Audience mobs....ect.

Perhaps we've lost touch with our collective energy..lost touch with the fact that we are a force to be reckoned with. I don't know, but I'm willing to bet that some of us want to be active.

Video: Chris Matthews: 'Ted Cruz Is Brilliant...The President's Met His Match'

Well - what do you think, Daily Paul? What is the Angle? Why is Matthews saying this?

The Democrats would love to see Cruz as the GOP nominee. They would DESTROY him.

This is the Republican dilemma. Cruz can win the nomination. But Rand could win the election. He's able to break open the heads of the liberals.

Did anyone else notice all the ready made signs that are going up?

Is this planned for maximum impact?

Who knew what when?

Who made these and what did they cost?

Inquiring minds want to know.

143-year-old law puts fear in officials during shutdown

Administration officials now live in fear of a 19th-century law that could get them fired, penalized or even imprisoned if they make the wrong choices while the government is shut down.

The law is the Antideficiency Act, passed by Congress in 1870 (and amended several times), which prohibits the government from incurring any monetary obligation for which the Congress has not appropriated funds.
