• This is a must

    see. I wish I had seen it before I wasted all my time this morning reading and viewing MSM polemical crap about the current vaccines vs autism faux debate...

    I'm only at the 25 min. mark and have already had several 'a-ha!' moments just based on his time-line. The last 'a-ha' tho was his statement that 'even tho there's been a reduction in smokers, there's been an increase in lung cancer'. Just yesterday, I read that second-hand smoke was a more serious cause of lung cancer 'than previously thought'. In other words... blame it on anything, just not... SV-40!

    Something doesn't add up when you come from a long line of smokers, agrarians and veterans (the latter two are heavily exposed to chemicals) but until the late baby-boomers came along, cancer was never heard of. Emphysema, bronchitis, allergies, maybe...but no cancer - even in the second-hand 'smokers'. I guess stick that in your pipe and smoke on it awhile...:)

    up well in the comments of this Breitbart hit piece:

    If you can't beat 'em, join 'em?

    Two wrongs make a right?

    Works brilliantly for Democrats.

    Washington Post is SO astute!

    "My 3 best friends were milking the system entire time, even though ironically their parents made far more money than mine. I guess we weren't as "smart" as them. "

    If you want to know how 'the system' really works, talk to someone 'benefiting' from it. It'll blow you away.

  • I can only speculate...

    "Where has he been this whole time?" [On the Pentagon audit?]
    Priorities. I wonder what his priorities should be according to DP?
    I think every priority Rand included in this speech is way too much for a two term (8 year) President! No wonder Ron Paul's address may seem better than Rand's. It's a work in progress = sucks!

    At the same time, Ron did not win.

    Rand, probably won't win.

    BUT, even if he wins, he can only do so much...and I reiterate ....BIG IF...If Rand was President, he would in a short term, accomplish nothing...

    Too Little...Too Late

    The time for "education"... is, grossly OVER!

  • What I like about these popular artists,

    is their use of 'word painting' - even in their 3 - 5 min. time frame. An important element unique to music. Gone. And, only music has this tool.....not writing, painting, sculpture, etc.

    With a little imagination, try watching a movie with the music mute...

    "What does crossing that chasm look like. Is doing what Mitt Romney has done, not going on the show at all? How is that working out for him."

  • Always something to keep in mind

    whilst judging Rand.

    I wonder if Levin is now seeing a resemblance between his idol, Reagan, and Paul the Younger. Is he off course? Reagan was a lot more before they tried to assassinate him - scare him...

    I'm not a proponent of changing things from the inside... but both Pauls have tried it. So long as there's an attempt, I'll support it. But at the same time...I'll prepare for the worst...

    I'm kinda weird that way...

  • Brilliant romper-room defense by CIA

    I.G., Buckley, on the Senate hackers - hacking is not the problem...it was the "improper manner" in which they hacked!

    (Because we all know the 'proper manner' would be, DON'T GET CAUGHT.)

    Sick.

  • That's what

    I found eery ...Levin practically gushing over Rand after the interview, particularly after the only contentious part of the interview where he drills Rand on the Iranian sanctions (@76:11). Levin was clearly pissed at Rand's well-crafted response. How dare Rand apply Reagan's 'trust but verify' negotiations with Russia to Iran! Showed a lot of Ron in his reasoning - no mealy-mouthing there. Levin, much to his credit, SUCKED IT UP, because Rand [I never start a fight, but..] left him no choice.

    Definitely the highlight of the interview, imo:)

  • Publius Huldah is

    one 'rich' blogger, PAF! She gives us the notes to her videos including a wealth of links to many sources. I've already listened to the 3 parts of "Straight Talk...". Starting "Nullification" NOW. Thank you!

    Publius: "Let's have a Con-Con so we can find out how it works." :))) LOL!

  • Thanks Mike,

    But I'm already well aware of Levin's many manipulations, inconsistencies (indeed, contradictions). I already know he has more Constitutional blind-spots than you can shake a stick at when it comes to Israel, empire-building/Ron Paul, welfare, etc. He's a Neo-Con threw & threw, but he pretends not to know what that is. Then there's Reagan...but I've already said more about Levin than I wanted...which was nothing. ha. It's hard to stop once I get going.

    What I was hoping for was opinions from DP members on the Article V thing. The con-con. Their takes. I've read somewhat persuasive arguments, both pro and con, from opposing sources.

    Personally, I'm definitely against it now since listening to Stonewall's posted video below.

  • Thanks SJ-

    Not only is this what I was hoping for with my post, but the argument given against a con-con totally persuaded me. The last 6 min. alone were pretty powerful. Thanks again.

  • Maybe this will shed some light

    on the somewhat confusing subject: Is there or is there not a difference between the prefixes un- and in- ?

    In fact, they do 'mean' the same thing. I don't know about Adams and Franklin, but Jefferson was fluent in Latin and other languages. Jefferson authored the Declaration...the prefix in- /im- is Latin, and is usually used to negate a Latin root word. The root word, 'alius' (or 'Alien') is Latin. Hence, the correct prefix in Jefferson's mind would have been 'in-alienable'. But more importantly, he knew 'un-' would NOT effect the meaning.

    However, 'un-' is the native English prefix for negation, and is very widely used with all sorts of words and roots.

    I think that if there was an argument which hinged on religious interpretation, as you state it did, then surely Adams and Franklin would have nixed most of Jefferson's words, not just one little prefix.

  • Had a blast watching

    the whole video (below) until his luck ran out at the end. Wrong cops to pull that prank on. The two earlier cops in yellow safety gear were totally cool.

    Can't believe these cops were with "N.Y.P.D. School Safety". Sure wouldn't want them around my kids if I had kids.

  • OKOKOK, I admit it!! I made it up - it doesn't exist - not on

    wikip! I was shocked this form of monotonous-ness is not a word! I swear, I'll never make up a word again! :))) (wink-wink!)

    Enya AND Sinead are artistas of pure sound, creative artistas - IMHO.

    An excellent use of tech with human expressionism...

  • You may be confusing the tyrant with the composer -

    Under Stalin, like your example, only patriotic (Russian-folk-themed) music was tolerated. On pain of death. (Stravinsky escaped to Paris and later, USA.)

    Under Hitler (who was born 7 YEARS AFTER the death of Wagner, if I recall), music was only to be nationalistic. Was this Wagner's vision? His Ring Cycle glorified the legacy of German history. Not something to sneeze at, the way Wagner told it. Little did he know Hitler was abound. Consequently, some of the most complicated (simplistic)and beautiful music written in its time was used by a demonic dictator for his own ends.

    Question: How long has this been going on here in America!? How often do we have to listen to John Phillip Sousa marches being played for F'in' TYRANTS?

    P.S. Don't worry, JPS, we're working on getting back what we once deserved, the greatness your music reminds us of.

    P.P.S. - More importantly, during Ron Paul's presidential runs, he often said 'use music' and 'have fun'. NEVER did you hear him say 'what music' or 'use these lyrics'. See the difference? He trusted us.
