I am a psychologist who has been a small-L libertarian since long before Ron Paul considered running for President in the Republican Party.
Despite the countless hours that I have spent winning hearts and minds, there are some Daily Paulers (hopefully a tiny minority) who seem to think that people like me are enemies of freedom.
For some DPers, the issue seems to be the concept of mental disorders and use of psychoactive medications.
"Jean Stapleton, the actress who endeared herself to viewers in the 1970s as Edith Bunker, whose sudden bursts of truth regularly cut through her husband Archie's bluster on the groundbreaking television series "All in the Family," has died. She was 90.
Stapleton died Friday of natural causes at her New York City home, her family announced.
She earned three Emmy Awards starring as the wife of Carroll O'Connor's loud-mouthed, bigoted Archie Bunker on the show, which marked the beginning of sitcoms as a forum for political — albeit often comical — family warfare."
An African American SFPD cop is alleging that three of his fellow officers beat him up last night in what the NAACP is labeling "racial profiling."
According to SFPD, the incident took place at 8:30 p.m. on Thursday in the Bayview District between Third Street and Newcomb Avenue during a traffic stop.
The minutes from the Federal Advisory Council were made available late yesterday and they contained dire warnings from the banks that advise the Federal Reserve.
From the notes:
"Uncertainty exists about how market will reestablish normal valuations when the Fed withdraws from the market. It will likely be difficult to unwind policy accomodation, and the end of monetary easing may be painful for consumers and businesses. Given the Fed's balance sheet increase of approximately $2.5 trillion since 2008, the Fed may now be perceived as integral to the housing finance system."
I know many of you are probably thinking that this is just a dumb celebrity story, but this is actually a pretty big deal. Whether we like it or not, a celebrity, any celebrity embracing a message that is counter to the mainstream is going to make that message more palatable to the general population, because unfortunately we still live in a world full of followers.
This work by Rothbard - Notes on Watergate - has relevance with regard to today's political situation. Many would hesitate at impeaching Obama simply because Biden would be his replacement. Here's what Murray had to say in a similar situation:
The population assigned to the Combat Center is 9,723, Active Duty members, 8,588 dependents, and approximately 1,398 civilians. Each year roughly one-third of the Marine Force and Marine Reserve units 50,000 Marines in all participate in the base’s training exercise program.
The Combat Center at Twentynine Palms occupies 932 square miles, or 596,000 acres of the southern Mojave Desert, compiling approximately three-quarters the size of Rhode Island.
While President Obama’s administration weighs overt military aid to Syrian rebels, the true character of the revolution underway in that country is becoming horrifically clear. Numerous press reports are providing details of a massacre perpetrated by the Free Syrian Army that annihilated the entire population of a Christian village.

GOP Rep. Louie Gohmert: ‘If It Had Not Been For Sen. John Mccain And President Obama…Benghazi Would Not Have Happened’Submitted by Ian56 on Sat, 06/01/2013 - 13:54
Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-Texas) on Friday placed blame on Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) and President Barack Obama for the Benghazi terrorist attack.
Appearing on conservative radio host Frank Gaffney’s program on Friday, Gohmert argued that Obama and McCain’s (and others) support for the Libyan rebels’ cause, of which intelligence suggested al-Qaeda involvement, emboldened Muslim extremists forces that later attacked the U.S. compound in Benghazi.
That is also why Gohmert is completely opposed to McCain’s plan to fund and arm the rebels in Syria.
The labeling of genetically modified organisms (GMOs) such as Monsanto corn has come to be a controversial issue among the ever-increasing, politically active, libertarian population in the United States.
I've been watching a few blog meltdowns here on the Daily Paul (still the greatest website on the 3rd rock). I know many brothers and sisters are sitting on the sidelines watching an uprising of sorts among voluntary users of the blog feeds.
It's hit a point where a minority of people have made it uncomfortable for some to participate anymore because of a lack of decorum. It's even come down to a point where verbal (text) assults have been leveyed against the guy that made this whole thing possible. Anyone that disagrees with their opinions are labeled trolls and ganged up on.
