To the DP family...
It's come to light that the Flathead County, Montana Prosecutor's Office and the Flathead County Drug Task Force has been caught, red-handed, trying to get a client to fire Tim Baldwin (a Constitutional attorney) because they don't like him. They were messing with a man's life and threatening him and his wife that he'd go to prison for 20 years on drug charges if they didn't fire Tim Baldwin, as their attorney.
Biden said, “There are a lot of good people involved in the Tea Party but their objective is they don't want the government involved in anything. They are not liberal or conservative they are anti government ” he explained.
“Their ends are met best when nothing happens,” which he concluded means, "You cannot sustain a democracy without arriving at a consensus."
But you CAN sustain a Republic without arriving at a consensus. And it is this one word (democracy) that is causing mass confusion to the uninformed public.
"BAGHDAD — The United States has conducted an escalating campaign of deadly airstrikes against the extremists of the Islamic State for more than a month. But that appears to have done little to tamp down the conspiracy theories still circulating from the streets of Baghdad to the highest levels of Iraqi government that the C.I.A. is secretly behind the same extremists that it is now attacking."
Our Expectation for the Economy
Over time, as our debt rises, creditors will become less enthusiastic about financing our spending. Washington's approach to this problem will probably be to print more (instead of spend less). Supply of dollars will rise.
Over time, as our economy remains lackluster, foreign investment in our assets will decline - as will demand for dollars (in which those assets are denominated).
Bottom line: increased supply and decreased demand will bring severe devaluation to the USD.
I am planning a gift of precious metals to someone important. I do not want them (necessarily) to sell the precious metals now (with the values relatively low).
As long as I remember, my dad has been a neocon. Supporting Anders Fogh Rasmussen, The Bush Family, The Obama wars.
"We need to help Israel, look at their neighbors", OR "They (insert country) need military help, to get to where we are (democracy)"
For years since my own awakening (2007), I have been telling him: "We need to just leave these people alone"
Two days ago, my dad visited for coffee, the talk fell on current world affairs: ISIS, Gaza, Ukraine... I observed my dad take a sip of coffee, waiting for him, to tell me the Neoconservative truth, that somehow we NEED another war.
He sipped, and fell into thoughts, I let him be for a moment, then he uttered these words: "We need to just leave these people alone"

According to a special report just aired by NBC News, the U.S. has launched "massive" air strikes using cruise missles on alleged ISIS "command and control" positions inside of Syria.
Admitted, headline misleading. But it's great for attention.
Ron Paul delivered more than 4000 babies. I delivered 1. And he was a 10'er.
Don’t know if you use this number rating system immediately after birth (color, breathing, body intact, etc), but I was the only one present, so I examined him, and announced: He is a 10! The Doctor on the phone, lying on the bedside, must have noted my rating, because looking at the birth papers, his rating states: 10!
What happened was that we never made it to the hospital with my 3rd kid. Having tried spending a long waiting time in the hospital, giving birth before, she was determined to stay at home as long as possible. And she did!
I called the doctor at the hospital, who was expecting us, to inform that I was unable to persuade her into the car, so they had to come to my house instead, for the delivery or a pickup.
They sent an ambulance, but when they arrived, it was all over: "I just put down the phone; I can see the color of his hair!"
Vinay Gupta is one of those unique minds. A pragmatist without the negativity, and a visionary unleashed from ideology.
Why do so many poor people eat junk food, fail to budget properly, show no ambition? Linda knows whySubmitted by Suezenne on Mon, 09/22/2014 - 11:15
In the autumn of 2013 I was in my first term of school in a decade. I had two jobs; my husband, Tom, was working full-time; and we were raising our two small girls. It was the first time in years that we felt like maybe things were looking like they’d be OK for a while.

Sen. Rand Paul has voiced support for airstrikes, but voted against arming Syrian rebels
ALEXANDRIA, Virginia (CNN) —Sen. Rand Paul said this week that he would vote in favor of going to war with ISIS, but his father, former Rep. Ron Paul, made it clear Friday night that he sharply opposes further U.S. involvement in the Mideast region.
Speaking at a libertarian-leaning conference, Ron Paul slammed the "bipartisan support" among congressional lawmakers for "rubber-stamping what President Obama wants" in the fight against the militant group.
More broadly, he suggested that Senate Republicans aren't that different from their Democratic counterparts.
