Texas Republican Rep. Ron Paul said Wednesday he's considering a 2012 run for his state's open seat in the US Senate.

"It's certainly crossed my mind," Paul told The Hill after a poll found him to be a strong contender for the seat, to be vacated by Republican Kay Bailey Hutchison, who announced her retirement last week.

Getting Rich: The Cooperative Economic / Market Approach VS the Political / Coercive Approach (Video)
Source: Submitted: 01/15/2011
The problem starts with government subsidies, says Johnston, a Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist. States are spending around $70 billion on government subsidies, he estimates. That doesn't include the hundreds of billions more doled out in federal subsidies.

"Is that capitalism?," he complains. "Go compete in a competitive arena. Don't go to Washington and say 'give me money' either by saying 'I don't have to pay taxes' or forcing other people to pay taxes that go to me. Go earn your money in the marketplace."

Tunisian Revolution
Source: Submitted: 01/15/2011
--With complete control of the comings and goings of Internet traffic in the country, the government was able to totally shut down the secure https protocol (SSL), forcing all Tunisian users to use the less-secure http protocol in order to log in to their accounts. Utilizing this vulnerability, the government hacked and phished its way into the accounts of popular anti-government activists, shutting them out without their consent or knowledge.

That feeling in the pit of your stomach? Yeah, that’s because it hits just a little too close to home. Remember the calls for an “Internet Kill Switch” by such paragons of freedom as Joe Lieberman and Susan Collins? What we’re witnessing across the pond is nothing less than the Department of Fatherland Security’s cyberspace wet dream. Imagine all notions you might have about Internet privacy and security dashed at the flick of a switch — the very thing the government says these measures are designed to prevent. Another scary thought: With the Patriot Act and the various eavesdropping/wiretapping provisions it contains and has spawned, this might not be far from reality in the U.S.

SCHIFF: Stuart Rothenberg and the arrogance of honesty
Source: Submitted: 01/11/2011
--This is how the game works in big-time politics: A potential candidate hires a polling firm to create a strategically written and scientifically executed poll to discover the buzzwords and simple campaign themes that "resonate" among voters. Consultants then boil down the poll results to a few "winning" message points and strategies. At that point, the modern candidate simply hammers away again and again at those sound bites. Winners are those who stay "on message" while knocking their opponents "off message." It is of little consequence to the professionals that this process produces the kind of vacuous, unprincipled leaders who have brought our country to the doorstep of economic ruin.  Read full article »
Government-created climate of fear
Source: Submitted: 01/10/2011
--So much of what the U.S. Government has done over the last decade has been devoted to creating and strengthening this climate of fear. Attacking Iraq under the terrorizing banner of "shock and awe"; disappearing people to secret prisons; abducting them and shipping them to what Newsweek's Jonathan Alter (when advocating this) euphemistically called "our less squeamish allies"; throwing them in cages for years without charges, dressed in orange jumpsuits and shackles; creating a worldwide torture regime; spying on Americans without warrants and asserting the power to arrest them on U.S. soil without charges: all of this had one overarching objective. It was designed to create a climate of repression and intimidation by signaling to the world -- and its own citizens -- that the U.S. was unconstrained by law, by conventions, by morality, or by anything else: the government would do whatever it wanted to anyone it wanted, and those thinking about opposing the U.S. in any way, through means legitimate or illegitimate, should (and would) thus think twice, at least.

That a large percentage of those brutalized by this system turned out to be innocent -- knowingly innocent -- is a feature, not a bug: that one can end up being subjected to these lawless horrors despite doing nothing wrong only intensifies the fear and makes it more effective. The power being asserted is not merely unlimited and tyrannical, but arbitrary. And now, the Obama administration's citizen-aimed, due-process-free assassination program, its orgies of drone attacks, its defense of radically broad interpretations of "material support" criminal statutes, and its disturbing targeting of American anti-war activists with subpoenas and armed police raids are all part of the same tactic. Those contemplating meaningful opposition to American action are meant to be frightened. The anguished, helpless cries of 18-year-old American Gulet Mohamed, after a week of being disappeared and brutalized by America's close ally, serves an important purpose.

US says too much fluoride causing splotchy teeth
Source: AP Submitted: 01/09/2011
ATLANTA (AP) - In a remarkable turnabout, federal health officials say many Americans are now getting too much fluoride because of its presence not just in drinking water but in toothpaste, mouthwash and other products, and it's causing splotches on children's teeth and perhaps more serious problems.

The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services announced plans Friday to lower the recommended level of fluoride in drinking water for the first time in nearly 50 years, based on a fresh review of the science.

Giffords shooter shows pattern of psychiatric derangement; no clear political affiliation
Source: Submitted: 01/09/2011
--The utterly false and irresponsible accusation floating around certain circles on the 'net that Loughner was some sort of extreme right winger who targeted a Democrat is extremely irresponsible and hateful. Giffords was pro Second Amendment and publicly supported the right of the People to keep and bear arms. She's actually a gun owner who urged the U.S. Supreme Court to protect Second Amendment rights. She was also a huge supporter of a stronger border with Mexico, which has traditionally been one of the key positions of Arizona conservatives. Giffords can't be pigeonholed into a label, you see. Her views are far more complex than "Democrat" vs "Republican." She is certainly no "left-wing liberal," and the attack on her doesn't appear to be politically motivated at all.

--What is VERY clear at this point is that Loughner was not of the presence of mind to be rationally affiliated with ANY political party: Not on the left, nor the right. His apparent psychosis takes him way out of the realm of rational participation in any particular philosophy. Even his favorite books listed on his Myspace page adhere to no particularly consistent overriding philosophy.

This deceptive practice of holding up ONE deranged man’s actions as something that “represents” millions of other people (people who would NEVER encourage or participate in the heinous act) needs to end. It’s a lie.

I think it's ridiculous that the "no political affiliation" statement even needs to be made. The only way it would be relevant is if the "political affiliation" in question applied to a homogeneous group that openly advocated murder. (And even THEN you’d have to be careful about who the liars were trying to “lump in” with that group.)

Ron Paul 2012? The Stars are Finally in Alignment

--The media's newfound support for Ron Paul and libertarian ideas would surely come in useful for Paul in a 2012 race.

In February 2010, Dr. Paul won the Presidential Straw Poll at the Conservative Political Action Conference with 31% of the vote, breaking Mitt (22%) Romney's 3-year winning streak. Sarah Palin, who didn't attend CPAC, came in third with 7%.

What to look for in a dry dog or cat food
Source: Submitted: 12/31/2010
-- Leave all pet food containing corn or soy in any form on the shelf. Corn is a cheap filler ingredient, non-nutritious for pets, and a known allergenic. Soy is estrogenic and wreaks havoc on your pet’s endocrine system.

Also walk away from formulas containing by-products, especially those that don’t specify the type of meat in the meat by-product. Believe it or not, meat by-products – especially those not specified as a certain kind of meat – will contain parts of beaks, feathers, feet, hooves, hair and even tumors that have been ground into the mix during processing. Although some by-products may provide some nutrition, such as spleens and other organ meats, because they are all lumped together it’s best to avoid them.

Avoid pet foods containing artificial colors, flavors, sweeteners and preservatives, especially those known to be carcinogens. In dog food, these usually go by the names BHT, BHA, ethoxyquin and propyl gallate. When considering foods containing fish, look for manufacturer assurance on the label that states the formula contains NO artificial preservatives. Look for foods preserved with vitamins E and C, often called tocopherols.

I'm guessing the average dog owner will only have to spend an extra $20 per month (or less) to feed their dog something healthy.

Aside from the fact that your pet has no choice but eat what you feed it (its health and happiness boils down to what you put in the bowl) there is also the issue of REFUSING to give money to companies that think it's OK to sell you "food" that contains ground up tumors, dangerous preservatives and dyes, or perhaps even the remains of euthanized cats and dogs. (More on that here: )

There are quite a few sites online that offer suggestions for healthier pet food. Though they are not all in complete agreement, you'll quickly see some common themes (like those enumerated in the "what to look for in a dry dog or cat food" article posted above.)

I did a quick search and found this site for dog food....You can see how your current food scores and also easily find his list of “5-star” recommendations.
Nigeria’s deal to drop Cheney charges called illegal
Source: Submitted: 12/31/2010
Lawyers and media pundits in Nigeria are accusing the government of acting illegally by agreeing to settle criminal bribery charges against Dick Cheney out of court.

Nigeria charged Cheney and applied for an Interpol arrest warrant earlier this month in connection with a $180-million bribery case. Cheney's former employer, Halliburton, reportedly agreed to pay $35 million to see the charges dropped.

But Nigeria could see as much as $250 million from the deal, in "the form of a deal to free up Nigerian money that had been locked away in Swiss bank accounts," The Nation's John Nichols reports.

--"Fran Townsend can talk all she wants about how he has committed a crime," Greenwald shot back. "Many people believe that her [former boss President George W. Bush] has committed lots of crimes, but he hasn't been convicted of anything."

"[Assange] has not been charged with a crime and he has not been convicted of a crime in connection with these leaks and that's because you can say it all you want, but as a lawyer, I will tell you, and you ask any lawyer if this is true, it is not a crime in the United States to leak classified information if you don't work for the government."

"He didn't take any steps to understand the information," Townsend countered. "It was so vast, of what was public, whether or not it would be useful or not, he made no distinctions about the harm he might be doing to foreign governments, to the US government, to diplomats and soldiers around the world. He just wholesale threw this out there."

"That's totally false. That's just a lie," Greenwald said. "He has published less than 1 percent of the 250,000 diplomatic cables that he came into possession of, less than 2,000 of the 250,000."

Fluoride in Water Linked to Lower IQ in Children
Source: Submitted: 12/26/2010
--According to Paul Connett, Ph.D., director of the Fluoride Action Network, "This is the 24th study that has found this association, but this study is stronger than the rest because the authors have controlled for key confounding variables and in addition to correlating lowered IQ with levels of fluoride in the water, the authors found a correlation between lowered IQ and fluoride levels in children's blood. This brings us closer to a cause and effect relationship between fluoride exposure and brain damage in children."

"What is also striking is that the levels of the fluoride in the community where the lowered IQs were recorded were lower than the EPA's so-called 'safe' drinking water standard for fluoride of 4 ppm and far too close for comfort to the levels used in artificial fluoridation programs (0.7 – 1.2 ppm)," says Connett.

$144 Trillion In Unfunded Liabilities In... 2015
Source: Submitted: 12/22/2010
By now everyone has seen and played with the US debt clock via whereby anyone who so wishes, can find every little detail about America's current sad fiscal state. The fact that America currently has just under $14 trilllion in national debt should be no surprise to anyone who professes to having an even modest interest in the state of the US economy. Yet a new feature on the "debt clock", namely one which extrapolates future debt at current rates of advancement (instead of one based on the always completely inaccurate CBO estimates), and looks at US debt in the year 2015 will probably make many stop dead in the their tracks. If anyone thought that $14 trillion in 2010 debt is bad, just wait until we hit $24.5 trillion in total US national debt in 2015. And it gets even more surreal: total US Unfunded Liabilities are estimated at $144 trillion, roughly $1.2 million per taxpayer... Was that a pin dropping?  Read full article »

Totally Busted: How Goldman Repaid its TARP Loan
Source: Submitted: 12/19/2010
--Goldman repaid its $10 billion TARP loan. But just six days before this announcement, Goldman sold $11 billion of MBS (mortgage-backed securities) to the Fed. In other words, Goldman “repaid” the Treasury by secretly selling illiquid assets to the Fed.

One month later, Goldman’s CEO Lloyd Blankfein beamed, “We are grateful for the government efforts and are pleased that [the monies we repaid] can be used by the government to revitalize the economy, a priority in which we all have a common stake.”

As it turns out, the government continued to “revitalize” that small sliver of the economy known as Goldman Sachs. During the three months following Goldman’s re-payment of its $10 billion TARP loan, the Fed purchased $27 billion of MBS from Goldman. In all, the Fed would purchase more than $100 billion of MBS from Goldman during the 12 months that followed Goldman’s TARP re-payment.

Raw Milk Wars

--So, if it's not really about food safety, what's all the hubbub about? In a word: money.

The conventional dairy industry, realizing that consumers are flocking toward raw milk because of its health benefits, has redoubled their efforts to quench raw milk sales.

You might think that if raw dairy became attractive enough the dairy industry would simply follow suit and begin producing raw products to meet the demand. Alas... this is virtually impossible because of the way their overcrowded farms are run.

You simply CANNOT drink factory farmed milk raw. It would be extremely unsafe. Their business depends on pasteurization, and that is why their powerful lobbyists will stop at nothing to persuade government agencies to keep raw milk bans in full force.

Big Dairy simply cannot compete, so to maintain their market share, they're employing dirty tactics to destroy the competition instead.

Oath-Keeper Stewart Rhodes: U.S. Law Enforcement Must Stand for Freedom
Source: Submitted: 12/05/2010
--My 2004 paper (available at: addressed the dangerous and unconstitutional Bush Administration claims that the President, as Commander-in-Chief, can have anyone, even American citizens, black bagged and held in military detention and then, if he so chooses, tried by a military tribunal (made up of his hand-picked officers) and executed. Such a practice is a direct violation not just of the right to Grand Jury indictment and jury trial under our Bill of Rights, but also violates the Article III Treason Clause, which very clearly mandates what must be done with Americans accused of making war against their own nation or of aiding the enemy in wartime – they must be tried for treason, in an Article III court, before a jury of their peers, and there must be two witnesses to the overt act or confession in open court before the accused can be convicted and executed. The Bush Administration claimed that the powers of the President as Commander-in-Chief trumped the Bill of Rights, and his lawyers willfully sidestepped the Treason Clause.

--Unfortunately, Obama has done nothing to refute, renounce, or disavow such claimed powers. To the contrary, Obama has merely continued Bush's reasoning, and now claims the power to assassinate any American citizen he thinks is an unlawful combatant in the war on terrorism, and he further claims that his citizens hit list is secret and that not even a court can review who is on it, and by what "secret" criteria he constructs his list.

The author makes an excellent point...

Most people (unfortunately) have no idea that "food" does not come from a grocery store. The shelves can be emptied in an hour and they won't magically "replenish" themselves to meet an unmeetable surge in demand.. If you're "lucky enough" to be in the middle of a crazed mob fighting for whatever you can get, there is no telling how long that "little" is going to have to last you and your family.

So, for the hundredth time, I hope that you (like me) have eliminated the NEED to ever go out into a situation like that. It's very simple: Buy some storable food and a few other supplies. Worst case scenario, you can use them (whether there is an emergency situation or not.) It beats the Hell out of the alternative.

Dr. Blaylock: Body Scanners More Dangerous Than Feds Admit
Source: Submitted: 11/28/2010
--One of the main concerns is that most of the energy from the airport scanners is concentrated on the surface of the skin and a few millimeters into the skin. Some very radiation-sensitive tissues are close to the skin — such as the testes, eyes, and circulating blood cells in the skin.

This is why defenders using such analogies as the dose being “1,000-times less than a chest X-ray” and “far less than what passengers are exposed to in-flight” are deceptive. Radiation damage depends on the volume of tissue exposed.

--As for the assurances we have been given by such organization as the American College of Radiology, we must keep in mind that they assured us that the CT scans were safe and that the radiation was equal to one chest X-ray. Forty years later we learn that the dose is extremely high, it is thought to have caused cancer in a significant number of people, and the dose is actually equal to 1,000 chest X-rays.

China-Russia currency agreement further threatens U.S. dollar
Source: Submitted: 11/26/2010
--The dollar reserve currency status allows the U.S. to run up high deficits and have its debt be denominated in the U.S. dollar, which in turn enables it to print unlimited dollars and inflate its way out of debt. America, understandably, wants to protect these privileges.

In fact, some allege that the U.S. wants to protect this status so badly that it invaded Iraq because the country began selling oil in euros instead of dollars. Now, the U.S. is allegedly threatening Iran because of the country's desire to use euros or Russian rubles in oil transactions.

Meanwhile, China and Russia are gradually revolting against the U.S. dollar. This latest move to shift bilateral trade away from it is significant in itself because China-Russian trade -- previously denominated in dollars -- is currently around $40 billion per year. For Russia, trade with China is larger than trade with the U.S.

The Label All Milk Drinkers Should Look Out For
Source: Submitted: 11/25/2010
A few years ago, a number of U.S. states tried to ban "rbGH-free" claims on dairy. Monsanto, which owned rbGH at the time, helped found a group called AFACT, which supported the bans. AFACT was unsuccessful in most states, but it looked like they might win in Ohio, where the fight went to the courts.

Recently, however, the Ohio court came to its decision. First, they ruled that milk in Ohio can still bear an "rbGH-free" label as long as it also bears the disclaimer stating that, "[t]he FDA has determined that no significant difference has been shown between milk derived from rbST-supplemented and non-rbST-supplemented cows."

But there's more important news out of Ohio -- the court also challenged the FDA's finding that there is "no measurable compositional difference" between milk from rbGH-treated cows and milk from untreated cows. This FDA finding has been the major roadblock to rbGH regulation, and the court struck it down.

Can Our Heresies Benefit You?
Source: Submitted: 11/19/2010
--We're considered "heretics" on many issues by many people for the simple reason that we are philosophically and constitutionally consistent.

* We oppose BOTH gun control and drug prohibition for the same fundamental reason

* We oppose BOTH foreign aid AND wars that are not formally declared by Congress

* We believe there should be no federal restrictions on pornography OR campaign finance laws, for the same First Amendment reasons

* And we seek to dismantle both the bloated federal welfare state AND the bloated Pentagon budget

We are "heretics" because we adhere consistently to the philosophy behind the Constitution. But most people don't do that. They make exceptions, even if that results in contradictions. They are inconsistent, and ruthlessly so. This means . . .

DHS Source: TSA Infuriated With Coverage Of Nationwide Backlash

--Pistole points to the example of underwear bomber Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab as the reason why Americans need to submit to “groin checks” and have their testicles squeezed by goons in uniforms.

However, it was the US State Department that allowed Abdulmutallab to board Delta Flight 253 despite the fact that his father warned the US State Department about him a month before, he was on a terror watchlist and was aided through security by a sharp-dressed Indian man.

Wednesday, November 24, 2010 is NATIONAL OPT-OUT DAY!
Source: Submitted: 11/14/2010
--The government should not have the ability to virtually strip search anyone it wants. The problem is compounded in that if you do not want to go through the naked body scanner, the government has made the alternative perhaps worse! In an effort to try and make everyone comply with the scanners, the government has instituted "enhanced" pat downs. There are reports from travelers across the country about how the TSA now touches the genitals and private areas of men, women and children in a much more aggressive manner. We do not believe the government has a right to see you naked or aggressively feel you up just because you bought an airline ticket.  Read full article »
War Over Monsanto Gets Ugly

--Dr. Carrasco and a colleague locked themselves in a car as the mob yelled threats and beat on the vehicle for two hours. One delegate was hit in the spine and has since suffered lower-body paralysis. Another person was treated for blows to the head. A former provincial human rights official was hit in the face and knocked unconscious.

--Carrasco is a lead embryologist at the University of Buenos Aires Medical School and the Argentinean national research council. His study, first released in 2009 and published in the United States this past summer, shows that glyphosate-based herbicides like Monsanto's popular Roundup formula caused deformations in chicken embryos that resembled the kind of birth defects being reported in areas like La Leonesa, where big agribusinesses depend on glyphosate to treat genetically engineered crops.

*The number of DC Downsizers in YOUR Congressional district -- wouldn't you like to know this number?

* The number of active users of the Educate the Powerful System in YOUR Congressional district -- are there other people near you pressuring Congress the same way you are? This tool will tell you.

Meg McLain Singled out by the TSA, Cuffed to a Chair, Her Ticket Ripped up
Source: Submitted: 11/11/2010
The TSA chose Meg McLain for special screening. They wanted her to go through the new porno-scanners. When she opted out, TSA agents raised an enormous ruckus.  Watch here »
They scream "OPT OUT" to embarrass the person who is protecting their right to privacy and discourage others from doing the same. Next time, it would be nice if others, in line, would immediately begin saying "I OPT OUT TOO." Their tactic would quickly lose its power if enough people had the courage (dignity?) to do this.
