No More Manipulation - Ron Paul 4 Pres 08

The text below is a re-posting of someone's comments that I thought were spot on...

Other members of the Republican establishment suggested that Paul was "blaming America" for the 9/11 attacks. That's because they think that the federal government is America. Actually, the federal government and the country are composed of two separate and distinct groups of people -- those within the federal government and those within the private sector, a point reflected in the Bill of Rights, which expressly protects the country from the federal government.

Unfortunately, most can not discern between Nationalism and Patriotism; the former is confused as the later. The sycophant Nationalist blindly obeys flag draped plutocrats while the true Patriot fights against the wind to defend constitution and country.

And this ‘Blame America First’ is a brilliant, albeit insidious slogan. The patriot is stopped before he starts, in his duty to right a wrong. Reason must not be employed, even at the simplest levels lest it create the domino effect of a thousand falling curtains.

You would think ‘our foreign policy as a contributing factor to blowback’ is a simple, logical fit – to the government certified conspiracy theory of the 9/11 terrorist attacks. But no, that would in fact lead to more ‘curtains’ falling. So ‘They Hate Us for Our Freedom’ becomes the mindless mantra; another insidious platitude to keep the American public staring eyes wide shut into the abyss.

Frank Zappa - Freedom fighter...

...and dare I say libertarian. I never knew about Zappa until my buddy Tyson mentioned him. I haven't listened to his music yet, but I did come across this man's awesome political views recently from a post on Hammer of Truth.

Synopsis (2 videos below):
Frank intellectually rapes his counterparts and in the process, shows that the word "politician", doesn't necessarily equate to SMAHTS!

To all the good little christians...

I cannot imagine a God who rewards and punishes the objects of his creation, whose purposes are modeled after our own - a God, in short, who is but a reflection of human frailty. It is enough for me to contemplate the mystery of conscious life perpetuating itself through all eternity, to reflect upon the marvelous structure of the universe which we can dimly perceive and to try humbly to comprehend even an infinitesimal part of the intelligence manifested in Nature.

Another one bites the dust!

Yeppers, I'm officially married. After 5 yrs. of dating, and the purchase of a new home together, it was time to finally settle down. The wedding was an absolute blast. Jackie and I just got back from our honeymoon on an 8 day Carnival cruise to Panama, Costa Rica, and Belize. I have tons of video and pictures that I plan on creating a DVD with soon. I will be in secluded mode for the next couple of weekends getting that done.


Just got Skype

I just started using Skype and I love it. The call quality is extremely clear judging by the few people that I've spoken with on there. Download it, try it, USE IT biatch!

Quote of the day

Most of the major ills of the world have been caused by well-meaning people who ignored the principle of individual freedom, except as applied to themselves, and who were obsessed with fanatical zeal to improve the lot of mankind-in-the-mass through some pet formula of their own. The harm done by ordinary criminals, murderers, gangsters, and thieves is negligible in comparison with the agony inflicted upon human beings by the professional do-gooders, who attempt to set themselves up as gods on earth and who would ruthlessly force their views on all others - with the abiding assurance that the end justifies the means. -- Henry Grady Weaver
