Time Out For A Commercial

GoProHD

GoPro 1080P Camera

Measuring about 3.5 inches high including mounting bracket by 3 inches wide and about 1.5 inches thick, this little bugger is so small, it’s almost invisible.  Mounted upside down on the windshield of my little Datsun bodied EM (“E” class, “M” for Modified) autocross car and configured to save the image upside down, it comes out right side up.  It’s a good way to look back on laps you’ve driven and notice where you made mistakes.  As you can see from the GoPro’s maiden voyage, I’m just plain slow.  I used to be a lot faster and after looking at the following video, it’s obvious that I need to remember why coasting isn’t productive.

I think watching full screen is best.

When The MSM Does Not Ignore Ron Paul

In my previous post, I pointed out the way the mainstream media is attempting to ignore Ron Paul or when they do mention his polling numbers, the polls themselves become suspect.  In this post, I will point out that the only thing worse than the mainstream media ignoring Ron Paul is when it decides not to ignore him but instead attempts to denegrate, or ridicule his views.  What’s interesting is that the rivalry that exists between Fox and CNN is put aside as they find the most contraversial Ron Paul statements made during an interview by their competitors and attempt to put him in the position of either defending what’s presented as an outrageous statement, denying it, or admitting that he didn’t mean it.  

The first two videos below illustrate one example of the above tag team strategy used by Fox and CNN.  The last three videos illustrate that Ron Paul knew what he was talking about in the first two videos.  


Chris Wallace (Fox News) interviewing Ron Paul on FEMA in conjunction with hurricane Irene on the Eastern Seaboard asks a series of questions predicated on the premise that Ron Paul’s views are radical, extreme and certainly not mainstream.


Wolf Blitzer (CNN) attempts to get a negative sound bite against Ron Paul from governor O’Malley of Maryland based on Ron Paul’s previous comments about how FEMA is a disaster.  When O’Malley refuses to take the bait and reminds Blitzer to concentrate on the storm and forget politics for a while, Blitzer is shown to be a biased commentator rather than dispassionate news reporter.  Not to worry though, Wolf isn’t ashamed.  When you have no pride in your profession, you don’t worry about shame.


Fox News contemporaneously reporting during and shortly after Hurricane Katrina that devastated New Orleans.  Near the end of this video, a member of Oath Keepers explains why there is a need to get military, as well as, local, state and federal law enforcement officials to swear to obey their oaths to the constitution rather than simply obey a superiors orders when they are clearly unconstitutional.


Wolf Blitzer must have missed the following CNN documentary in which they enumerate and illustrate detail after detail to document FEMA’s irrational, almost unimaginable fraud, waste and symbiotic nature of the corporatism that defines business/government partnerships.

FEMA Waste – part 2


IN 2012 IT’S RON PAUL
OR
NOBODY AT ALL

In 2012 it’s RON PAUL or NOBODY AT ALL

Message to the GOP leadership and to their willing accomplices in the media:

In 2012, it’s RON PAUL or NOBODY AT ALL.

If the GOP thinks the Republican Party can regain the White House, it had better start recognizing and supporting the candidacy of Congressman, Doctor Ron Paul right now and start to honestly present the history and voting records of his big government, mainstream, media favorite opponents for what they are… regardless of the fact that some of them will come off looking like idiots, corporate shills, socialists and uninformed Tea Party imposters.

The following videos are presented for the simple purpose of illustrating that Ron Paul has been right for AT LEAST 23 years.  The first two videos were recorded in 1988 when Ron Paul ran for the office of president as the Libertarian Party candidate.  Notice that he explains what was going on back then and predicted EXACTLY what the result would be.

Part 1 – 1988 Libertarian Party Presidential Nominee Ron Paul interview.

Part 2 – 1988 Libertarian Party Presidential Nominee Ron Paul interview.

In this video we see that a mainstream media network isn’t happy that it inadvertently allowed Ron Paul’s accurate message to be aired and potentially heard by the American public.

John Stewart hosts a show on the comedy channel.  Even so, it’s possibly the least biased news outlet around.  In the following video, he exposes the blatent bias that exists on a variety of the so-called “legitimate” news channels.

If you don’t want to see Obama re-elected…  All Independents including libertarian Party, Green Party, Constitution Party members as well as freedom loving Republicans and Democrats need to register as Republicans to insure that Ron Paul becomes the GOP nominee and INSURE that either Ron Paul or Barack Obama will be the next president.

Personally;  If Ron Paul doesn’t win in 2012, I don’t think it matters who wins.

Tim DeChristopher

Rather than entering my long winded diatribe about why I’ve more and more decided to loath what was once the greatest experiment in liberty the world has ever known, I’m going to rely instead on the following already published accounts of why we should all know Tim DeChristopher.

After you’ve watched the video account of his actions and their consequences, please take the time to read his complete statement at his sentencing .

Are you ashamed too?

Texas Voters Get What They Deserve

The Texas legislature had a chance yesterday to drive the last nail in the coffin of the Texas based TSA’s ability to sexually abuse children and grandmothers in wheel chairs.

The cowardly weasel, House Speaker Joe Straus along with the conniving Lt. Governor David Dewhurst and his equally dishonest ally, Governor Rick Perry put enough fear into enough house members to kill the bills authored by Congressman David Simpson and Senator Dan Patrick that would have criminalized TSA agents who chose to “just follow orders” that instructed them to feel around in the panties of the least likely terrorists on Earth.

If Texas and other states used their brains instead of their collective wallets to rake in campaign funds in return for back scatter x-ray machines, more power and less constitutional restrictions, they’d do the sensible thing and hire employees like those starring in the following video.

Texans who help reelect Straus, Dewhurst and Perry deserve what they get:  lying, cowardly, third rate crooks.

Ms Wafa Sultan

Most of us US citizens have heard the rhetoric about Muslims and how disgraceful their Islamic religion is, but I recently watched a YouTube video which had a visceral impact on me like none other.

It was a presentation by Ms Wafa Sultan, who was born and spent the first three decades of her life as a Syrian citizen.  Her short story is both moving and unnerving.

I spend a lot of time complaining about what I believe is evidence that the USA is sliding down a slippery slope toward more ignorance, less freedom and bankruptcy, but because I listened to Sultan’s history, I had to remind myself that we’ve got a lot of sliding to go before we slide back into the seventh century.

At the same time, her story makes me even more committed to championing our countries founding principles that have made the United States of American the most unique experiment in freedom in the history of the planet.

See if you don’t agree.
