That copy was pasted on Sunday, 12:09am. In other words, late Saturday night. The end of the night for some.

What are you doing here? What are people still doing here? The election is over.

What is the Daily Paul?

What are you still doing here, and why? Why? WHY?

Congrats to all Patriots today

That includes the 2nd Amendment cavalry in NV, committed citizens from around the country such as Sheriff Mack, and the 4th estate with the likes of Alex Jones and crew.

It should be particularly noted that the Bundys' handling of a no-compromise situation was deftly yet courageously handled to success: may others follow their lead.

Undoubtedly there is likely to be further repercussions from today's historic stand-off, however it is an honor to stand alongside you and defend free sovereignty

RIP Grandpa

I wish I would have known you. I have memories when I was a child, fishing off the pier with you and watching the the dolphins swim. That was many years ago and but a faint memory...or a dream. I wish I could go back to those days. I wish I could talk to you and learn more about who you were. I know you loved Frank Sinatra. I know you loved your Thunderbird with T tops. I know you loved your Seagrams. I know after Grandma died you were very lonely. I wish I would have been there for you. I feel I missed out on so many memories growing up without a relationship with my grandparents.

The great Indian elections are on

India is going to elect a new Prime Minister this year and the elections are going on currently. This is a very important election because for the first time, we have a major political party, which is running on this slogan – “Minimum government, maximum governance”. This is a deviation from the traditional socialist, welfarist political paradigm in India. Before I describe the main actors in this election, here are some fun facts

1) 814 million people are eligible to vote in this election. Compare that to the 129 million people who voted in the 2012 US presidential election.

2) The election is being held on 9 different days in different parts of India between April 7th – May 12th. All votes will be counted on May 16th and the results declared on the same day

3) India has a multi party-system. The major political parties are Indian National Congress, which has ruled India for nearly 60 of our 67 years of freedom, Bharatiya Janata Party, which was in power for one term in 1999. There are several regional parties i.e. parties that have clout in individual states that join one of the above parties to form a coalition government

Heaven and Hell

Retold by Michael Nystrom | August 1, 2005
Originally published at Bull! Not bull

We stood in an empty white room, facing two doors. The Master explained to me that while the initial conditions behind the two doors were the same, it was the thinking, attitudes and actions of the people inside that made all the difference. The doors were labeled "Heaven" and "Hell."

What I've learned from legal marijuana in my state.

Hey guys, this article "3 studies that show cannabis grows brain cells" set me on a writing tangent that I thought I should share.

Everything in this post has been learned by me in the past 3 months while the stores have been open. It takes a scientific outlook on the new things we are learning now that research can be legally conducted.

The endocannabinoid system is a system that acts upon literally every other system in your body. It regulates homeostasis of the bodily functions, in other words, it keeps every system in your body within certain parameters necessary for proper function. When cells get low on fuel, they send signals to the brain telling them the body needs an intake of food. The brain then releases a small amount of anandamide (endocannabinoid), and you literally give yourself the munchies. That happens every time you get hungry.

Dear Rand...Please, NEVER, EVER apologize or take back your remarks on Dick Cheney

I heard John Bolton, the AMERICAN TRAITOR, WAR-MONGER, NEO-CON, Ex-U.N. STOOGE say recently that Rand Paul should apologize to DICK Cheney and retract his remarks on the immorality of the Iraq war.

Bolton is the same one who believes Edward Snowden deserves the death penalty (for keeping his oath to uphold the Constitution).

I pray Rand NEVER takes anything back. What he said was the simple truth and WE ALL KNOW IT.

If there is a HELL in the afterlife, people like Cheney and Rumsfeld (and Bolton) will be there burning the hottest.

Conspiracy Theorist!

I always find it amusing when people yell "Conspiracy Theorist!" as some sort of indictment of a lack of intellect. The people who yell that are generally people who consider themselves smarter than everyone else. Yet their own cries betray their claims to intelligence.

Conspiracies exist all around us each and every day. The literal definition of a conspiracy is when two or more people join forces to accomplish a common goal, generally in secret. In criminal law, a conspiracy is an agreement between two or more persons to commit a crime at some time in the future. But not all conspiracies are criminal in nature.

I would imagine that there are few of us who have not contributed to a 'surprise' party at one or more points in our lives. A surprise party is a conspiracy of people planning to accomplish a common goal in secret. It's not an evil plot, but it is still a conspiracy. When two or more people plan together to mow the lawn and paint the home of an elderly neighbor who needs a hand, it is a conspiracy. Again, nothing evil about that, but a conspiracy nonetheless.

Sometimes people conspire to commit crimes. When two or more people make plans to rob a bank or murder someone, those are conspiracies. When two or more people plan together to misappropriate public funds, it is a conspiracy. When two or more people use a charity as a front to enrich themselves, it is a conspiracy. And on and on and on.

Request for your prayer

I want to make this short. As you can read in other threads I was an atheist for the longest time and I came to know "the beyond" by experimentation with meditation and drugs. Yet I'm not on the right path in life and I feel like I'm damned and helpless.

I've renounced my Christian upbringing in my atheist times, I even laughed about God and Jesus and theists many times. I lumped "spirituality" and "religion" in with the easter bunny.

Captain America !

I saw "Captain America - The Winter Soldier" and have to say that I was very impressed by the nature of the message. Although still supporting a "government" of some kind, the theme was definitely anti-current-direction. The theme was that the "protectors" need to be abolished because they ultimately abuse their power. They actually had "American" troops splitting into pro and anti administration and actively engaging in warfare against each other. A civil war scenario of the kind the TPTB don't even want us mundanes to even think about.

Meanwhile off the west coastline of Michigan

While we contemplate world events I am reminded that life goes on. Here I sat on an ice shelf in Holland Michigan watching the sunset in April 2014.

How sweet it is to be alive!

Police Kicked Down My Neighbor's Door Because of an Extension Cord

Behind my father's property, there are two adjacent properties, one owned by my neighbor, and the other, technically still owned on paper by my father.

Several years ago, my father contracted with a couple to purchase the property adjacent to my neighbors. After paying off the property, my father would then transfer over the property to the couple.

Unfortunately, before paying off the property, the husband murdered the wife and became a fugitive, running from the law.
