Homeland security had its own goons create a report saying that its X-ray machines are perfectly safe. That's like the mafia ordering its own goons to say breaking knees is perfectly safe.
In the wake of another, typical, outrageous government failure event that ended with one student-prisoner killing three other student-prisoners, the government wants every parent and teacher to treat any threatening behavior as a life or death terrorist event. Children everywhere should be scared. As should adults.
RINO Snowe won't seek re-election in Maine. Thank goodness.
Have you ever wondered how to measure how badly Boehner's Republicans have done since they were empowered in 2010?
"Democrats grow confident of House win"Sure, this is a bunch of propaganda, but like all good propaganda, it has truth at its basis. Thanks to Boehner's government-loving house and the Republicans' government-loving presidential candidates, all the people who wanted small government have been abandoned completely. Those are the people who were excited in 2010 despite knowing full well that Republicans including tea party Republicans were going to betray them. There's no longer a question of betrayal. It's here. The only hope our country has is if small government lovers rally to make Ron Paul the Republican nominee. If they don't, kiss America as we know it goodbye.
If this is true, when?
"Scientists at Renssalaer Polytechnic Institute have found that when an unshakable belief is held by just 10 percent of the population, that belief will always be adopted by the majority of society. Here is an article link to their findings. "I'm sure that every libertarian is salivating for this to be true. But I'm skeptical. I don't see how a finding like this could be universal. It seems to me this ten percent number must vary with the number of people being bought off or lied to. On the other hand, maybe it's true given decades or centuries, in which case, who the hell cares? We'll all be dead by then. I want freedom now. I've been fighting for it for decades. I want it now.
Good for Ron Paul for honestly explaining that dramatic reductions in government and economic change will happen soon regardless of what voters vote for. The only intelligent thing to do is vote for a person who recognizes this and, because his informed enough to understand this is inevitable, can manage the process to limit the damage to all of us.
Thousands flock to listen to Ron Paul at Michigan State. No Republican inspires crowds on this scale besides Paul. He's inspiring a movement. But so far these people aren't winning him elections, so the question remains, is this a liberty movement or bowel movement? I'm sure many of my libertarian colleagues will be scandalized by that comment, but show me the votes. Show me the political victories. Until then, it's just hype. Growing hype. Promising hype. Hopeful hype. But hype nonetheless. I'm reminded of Anna Kournikova. Win something already. As thrilled as I am that Ron Paul has galvanized a movement, I'm afraid that movement will fade when he does. Rand Paul is not his dad.
I listened to Rush all afternoon today, and he did everything in his power to convince people in Michigan and Arizona to vote for Santorum instead of Romney. He lost.
I've gotten a lot of grief over my explanations that all government, federal, state and local exists for the sole purpose of looting the people. This item is unlikely to persuade sycophants, but I present it anyway.
"The board of the National Aviation Hall of Fame expects to decide soon whether to accept an offer from Charlotte, N.C., to convene this year’s Hall of Fame enshrinement dinner and ceremony in that city, rather than in Dayton, where the annual ceremony has taken place for years.It's all about money. Government programs are always all about money for the individual who profit from the programs. Ignore the propaganda and focus on who profits, and you'll see what I mean.
Bill Harris, board president of the National Aviation Hall of Fame, said the offer made through the Carolinas Aviation Museum in Charlotte includes $100,000 in cash and $50,000 in in-kind support services from US Airways, which operates a flight hub in Charlotte."
