I don’t like to make light of our men in uniform, but this one is too good to pass up.
Hilarious! Sorry, I know that my maturity level isn’t always there.
The RIAA has been suing Americans left and right in hopes of deterring piracy that has become increasingly simple during the digital age. There is a way to fight against the RIAA:
Stop giving them your dollars and stop supporting their artists.
My beef with the RIAA isn’t that it is fighting for “justice”, because to a certain extent, they are just trying to stop “theft”. However, they are acting as a bully and essentially resorting to fear tactics to control Americans. Artists aren’t even benefiting from the RIAA bullying, it’s the recording industry and big-name labels that increase their bottom line and therein likes the problem.
I’m not a big fan of corporations that operate entirely on their greed and power. With the rise of fascism in America and the danger of lost liberties. I’d also rather not support organizations that are dedicated to screwing consumers (and artists) in order to help the corporations increase profits.
Below is a link to a website that will help you know what artists are associated with the RIAA and I’d advise everyone to stop supporting them PERMANENTLY. This is not just a Christmas thing, not just a “one day boycott”. I am telling you that in order to hurt them and make them stop acting like bullies, you need to fight back.
The only language they understand is money!
Politics is getting pretty nasty, polarization of American politics is unbelievable and quite dangerous if you are an outspoken individual on either side of the coin. Here’s a video of Bill Kristol experiencing what every extremist should experience at one time in his/her life.
This is brilliant, it gives atheists and Christians a reason to smile when they visit the grave yard.
I know some might be offended by its presence, but I think most good-humored Christians would laugh at the irony.
Keith Olbermann Buries Rudy Giuliani With Truth
This guy isn’t going to take any chances. The Rapture is coming, after all.. and if you don’t prepare for it, God will show no mercy.
Tim Russert Interviewed Ron Paul on Meet the Press
Tim Russert was a bit hard on Ron Paul, it almost seems like he wanted to shame him into conceding on certain libertarian positions. Ron Paul stood his ground, though, and I think he did just fine.
Clash of Ideas – Tim Russert’s Bias Was Apparent
Ron Paul needs to lay off of the “abolish the department of education” line. I understand why he says it and what he expects to benefit from it, but for mainstream America, the rhetoric is too easy to drum up on education. Any Democrat that is worth a damn would destroy Ron Paul in debate on issues like education. It’s not that a Democrat is right or the Department of Education is the solution to all our problems, but it’s the way the arguments are made. I’m a huge fan of Ron Paul, but I think John Edwards (A lawyer) would destroy him if he is taken out of his comfort zone (liberty).
Advice For Ron Paul From a Fan
America loves Ron Paul because of the liberty arguments and freedom message, but not all Americans equate liberty with completely dismantling government. This dismantling of certain government programs and functions would take decades if not a century to accomplish. As such, baby steps are necessary to introduce some of these ideas to the public. When directly addressed on the issues that main stream America favors, a strategy of dealing with them is needed. Generally, Ron Paul is great on his feet… but it would be a good idea to consider why the majority of Americans are addicted to government waste and how best to ween them off the government-sponsored crack.
While American political activists have given up on the “no more blood for oil” chants at their various rallies, people of the world still view the United States invasion of Iraq as being largely about oil rather than “Iraqi liberation”.
With profits at Halliburton at over 3000%, it’s no wonder that some view our move over seas as synonymous with killing Americans and Iraqis in the name of money.
Insurance companies are getting away with murder. John Edwards is right to call them out on this and I’m glad that he is working his kind of magic to go after this enemy. We’re so concerned with terrorists from overseas, that we can’t see the great amount of terrorism that is happening at home. Forget about fascism, fear-driven policies and threats that our own government poses to society, we have a major problem with corporations that choose profits over American lives.
John Edwards is looking to take up the fight against Insurance companies
Nataline Sarkysian died last night at UCLA Medical Center after complications arose from a bone marrow transplant to treat her leukemia. Her insurance provider, CIGNA Healthcare, first denied the potentially lifesaving transplant, but relented after a loud public protest and outrage. By that time, though, Sarkysian passed away before the procedure could be performed.
“Are you telling me that we’re gonna sit at a table and negotiate with those people?” asked a visibly angered Edwards, challenging the health care companies. “We’re gonna take their power away and we’re not gonna have this kind of problem again.”
Edwards also told the audience of about a hundred people at the Score Pavillion in Nevada, Iowa, that it will take a fighter (i.e. him) – and not a negotiator (ii.e. Obama) – to take on large insurance companies like CIGNA.
This is familiar grounds for John Edwards, he’s been doing this kind of thing all his life. He receives a lot of hell for advocating the rights of the poor despite having great wealth, but I find this trait most admirable. Who is selfless enough to take up the cause of the less fortunate when they don’t have to? Men like this should be admired for caring about people rather than turning his back on people so he could enjoy his own money and engage in selfish activities that other rich lawyers might tend towards.
Ron Paul’s popularity threatens to split the GOP and American establishment
Over the last few years, I’ve considered the possibility that our CIA or other federal agencies might be put in a position where they’d have to “silence” Ron Paul.
As an average American citizen, even I worry that my own ‘loud’ political opinions might get me in trouble with authorities, if not get me killed. The question we should consider as Americans is do we think that this is the kind of America that our founders intended? Should we live our lives in fear so that powerful people or organizations can stay in power?
Ron Paul assassination imminent?
Bilderberg tracker Daniel Estulin says he has received information from sources inside the U.S. intelligence community suggesting that people from the highest levels of government are discussing “eliminating” Rep. Ron Paul because its controlled political system is threatened by Paul’s exploding popularity.
Estulin, whose information has proven accurate in the past, went public with the bombshell story Dec. 14 on Alex Jones’s national radio show.
“I am getting information from my sources that there are people involved from a higher level of the American establishment who are seriously considering assassination,”Estulin said.
Estulin’s past predictions about global events were accurate because of the solid information provided to him from within the Bilderberg organization. Over 18 months ago Estulin correctly made the call that the Iran invasion had been delayed and was probably off the table, which appears now to be the case following the release of the National Intelligence Estimate showing that Iran had terminated its nuclear research in 2003.
Read the full article, it’s a good one: “Paul in Crosshairs of Elite“
Ron Paul is a threat to the American way of life, this is true. The threat he poses is to the foundation of our nation, a threat of peace, freedom, liberty, honesty, and defending the Constitution doesn’t sit well with all Americans. Ron Paul dares to give the people more power and control over the direction of the nation. Is this the kind of America that we’d like to live in? You have to wonder why our government would stoop so low if it is in fact considering a personality like Ron Paul.
The Danger of Assassinating Ron Paul
If Ron Paul were to go down for “natural reasons” the government might be completely wrecked and damaged far worse than if Ron Paul became president.
The way I see it, the government should work very hard to ensure that Ron Paul remains alive and well throughout the elections and after they are over. If the guy dies, given the reactionary voices and anti-government sentiment that is alive and well in America.. his death would completely destabilize government.
Before “intelligence” personnel go off and make decisions for the “greater good”, they’d better consider the possibility of creating a martyr for the cause of liberty. Again, I don’t know how reliable the source is, although the link above claims it is highly reliable. American government is at a point where it will either stand up and defend the Constitution and freedom or burn it up entirely. Maybe a story of an assassination attempt is just a way of scaring people to keep libertarians and anti-War liberals under control.
