“I like Ron Paul’s ideas on the economy, but I can’t vote for him because he’s an isolationist on foreign policy. He’s a kook (or naïve, or nuts or insert your own word) on foreign affairs.” What that means is that pushing Middle Eastern countries around and imposing our will on them is more important to so-called conservatives than getting our financial house in order.
Since he let us in on his future plans, Representative Barney Frank has touched off a firestorm of discussion over his legacy of 40 years living off the largesse of the taxpayers of Massachusetts and the United States. As you might expect, much of the discussion has centered on the factor Frank spent the most time promoting: his sexual preference. (Barney liked girls, but not in that way.)
The U.S. Senate is considering a bill that would designate the whole world, including U.S. territory, as a battlefield and subject American citizens in the United States to indefinite military detention without the benefit of trial and to attacks along the lines of the drone assassination of supposed terrorist Anwar al-Awlaki.
In a piece on The Blaze Mike Opelka asks: “Should MSNBC fire Al Sharpton for making (well documented) racially insulting and insensitive comments in public?” I have an answer for Opelka: No.
There are many secrets about food and its methods of preparation, but none as sinister, perhaps, as the secret the U.S. Food and Drug Administration wants to keep from you. That secret involves genetically modified organisms in food crops. The food is altered at gene levels, but is not labeled as such on packaging and in advertisements for raw, prepared or packaged foods, as specified by FDA regulations.
Late last week, the boss sent me an email reminding me of my Thanksgiving-week deadline changes. “Perhaps you could write about something you’re thankful for.” Duly inspired, I decided to employ some of the lessons I managed to retain from my days as a history major and raise a drumstick to a list of five entities that made Thanksgiving a holiday.
It’s clear the elites won’t be satisfied until all the world is in a conflagration or subjection. That is the takeaway from Tuesday’s GOP debate.
Much to no one’s surprise, the supercommittee turned out to be anything but super. There was never any real intention by the members of the committee to make cuts of any significance.
I know remakes are all the rage in Hollywood these days, but when did former President Jimmy Carter get written into the script at the White House? It has been three decades since American voters canceled Carter’s show. I hardly expected a comeback three decades after it went off the air. To be fair, President Barack Obama is more Carter’s evil twin than his reanimated political corpse.
Listening to the mainstream government propaganda arm corporatist media, one would think Ron Paul doesn’t exist; or, if he does, there’s no way he’s going to be the Republican nominee. But something happened on the way to the media blackout party. Ron Paul’s message is winning despite the concerted effort by the political and media elites to act like he’s not really there.
