You know what is great about the DP?

No matter what we all post, it does get clicked-on, viewed and read and whether or not someone upvotes, downvotes or comments or provides helpful links, know that your messages are important and beautiful and liberating in their own ways...honesty can be sensed in every post here, it's just that everyone's definition and expectation of honesty is different.

We are all honest by our very willingness to post and share and open our lives, hearts and views up to strangers, but friends by the notion that we care enough about the woes and corruptions of the world that we have awakened from our slumbers...we are born anew.

I like to think my posts have been read by Ron Paul or Rand Paul or other Liberty oriented minds...and you know what, some of them probably have been.

Peace and Love first.

Tension Turns to Violence at Guantanamo Amid Growing Hunger Strike

By CHARLIE SAVAGE | April 13, 2013 | New York Times

WASHINGTON — Weeks of mounting tensions between the military and detainees at the wartime prison at Guantánamo Bay, Cuba, escalated into violence on Saturday during a raid in which guards forced prisoners living in communal housing to move to individual cells.

"Some detainees resisted with improvised weapons, and in response, four less-than-lethal rounds were fired,” the military said in a statement. “There were no serious injuries to guards or detainees.”

Capt. Robert Durand, a military spokesman at the base, said the improvised weapons included “batons and broomsticks.” Another military official said that at least one detainee had been hit by a rubber bullet, but that there were no further details about any minor injuries or how the prisoners had resisted.

Allen West: Another neocon down for the count.

Allen West is unable to answer simple questions about defense strategy and spending. He doesn't know what would happen if somebody attacked Russia. He doesn't know what would happen if somebody attacked us. He can't explain why we have to spend 12 times as much as any other country on defense spending. Watch this link that exposes his ignorance.

Allen West, fmr. Congressman, on defense spending. How much do we need to spend to be safe from attack?

The Entire Economy Is a Ponzi Scheme. The Global Financial System is Insolvent

Bill Gross, Nouriel Roubini, Laurence Kotlikoff, Steve Keen, Michel Chossudovsky, the Wall Street Journal and many others say that our entire economy is a Ponzi scheme.

Former Reagan budget director David Stockton just agreed.

So did a top Russian con artist and mathematician.

Even the New York Times’ business page asked, “Was [the] whole economy a Ponzi scheme?

In fact – as we’ve noted for 4 years (and here and here) – the banking system is entirely insolvent. And so are most countries.
