Wow, I Feel So Accomplished!

Hey everyone, I'm so ecstatic right now. I have this natural high that you can't get from any drug. I'm just so proud of myself and only my DP Family can fully appreciate why.

I've been doing a few projects around the house lately to alleviate some stress and boredom. In October, I decided I was finally gonna start a garden and become a little more self-sufficient. I started collecting 5 Gal. buckets from work and picking up potting soil every week. I planted and I hoped, and it grew and grew.

Diabetes And Milk

Years ago, my husband and I saw a study published that indicated milk was probably a culprit in the onset of juvenile (type 1) diabetes. The study was soon scrubbed, and the insulin manufacturers continued with their highly profitable business. Similar studies can now be found:

Putin reopened the "Gold Window". And he didn't ask anybody for permission.

Grandmaster Putin's Golden Trap

In 1971, US President Richard Nixon closed the 'gold window', ending the free exchange of dollars for gold, guaranteed by the US in 1944 at Bretton Woods.

In 2014, Russian President Vladimir Putin has reopened the 'gold window', without asking Washington's permission.

If history repeats itself, Cosby’s legacy will be fine and his accusers forgotten

Even in the cases where the male celebrity actually went to jail? When they were actually convicted of a crime? It rarely affects their career or legacy.

Mike Tyson went to jail for raping Desiree Washington.

Tupac Shakur spent time in jail for orchestrating the gang rape of Ayanna Jackson.

Peter Yarrow, of Peter, Paul and Mary spent three months in jail for taking “sexual liberties” with a 14 year-old girl. He was later given an official Presidential pardon by Jimmy Carter!

Roman Polanski plead down to “unlawful sexual intercourse” with the then 13 year-old Samantha Geimer at the home of of Jack Nicholson and Anjelica Huston. He never went to jail, but he sure did win an Oscar, and pretty much every celebrity you know and love has come forward to defend him. By the way, he was also accused of sexually assaulting then 16 year-old English actress Charlotte Lewis.

Israel – America’s Biggest Frenemy

The Jewish State in the Levant is a burden we shouldn’t have to bear
by Justin Raimondo, November 24, 2014

Today [November 24, 2014] is the deadline for the closing of a deal with Iran regarding their nuclear program. No one should be surprised that Israel is marking this deadline with a threat to attack Iran regardless of the outcome of the negotiations. As the Jerusalem Post is reporting on its front page:

"Israel has issued a stark, public warning to its allies with a clear argument: Current proposals guarantee the perpetuation of a crisis, backing Israel into a corner from which military force against Iran provides the only logical exit."

This is a lie, and is widely recognized as such: the Israelis don’t have the military capacity to take out all the Iranian nuclear sites without American assistance. Aside from that, however, they never attack those capable of hitting back in any significant way, so we can write off this latest threat as just so much kvetching.

My Open Letter to the DP-Something is wrong tonight.

Dear Daily Paul
.
I sit tonight with a feeling inside of turmoil, distrust, and just an utter feeling of dismay and gloom. I don’t know how to describe it, but watching these people riot in Ferguson, I just get this feeling that I need to type tonight. So many things are wrong with this I don’t know where to start. Rather than digging into the case itself, I truly have to think that someone or something wants this to escalate beyond anyone’s control. Why? Look at the way everything is being handled. They knew the verdict, and they expected some problems so why in the hell would you not be ready and lock that place down? I am talking a full military control. In this type of situation this is what our government is supposed to prevent and suppress. THIS is what I feel I pay my taxes for, too crush this type of violence and put a HALT to all of it in a matter of minutes. Do you agree with me? It almost seems as though something eerie is going on. Also, as George Bush put a squash on all media outlets covering the deaths of Americans in Iraq in 1991 and Obama just making up laws as he goes, why would they not crush the media escalating this?

Why would you not shut down the media hype over this crap?

Woody Harrelson: 'I'm an anarchist'

NEW YORK — Give Woody Harrelson a piece of yarn, and he'll knit you a full-on, multicolored sweater. Here's his take on playing crafty mentor Haymitch Abernathy sober, as opposed to falling-down drunk in the past two Hunger Games films.

"I wanted to give him a little more of a tortured expression: Jesus Christ, sobriety! Honestly, when I was first playing him — I will generally go over the top if allowed," says Harrelson, who credits directorial restraint for his more muted performance in The Hunger Games: Mockingjay — Part 1 (opens today in select cities and Friday nationwide). "A guy who's an alcoholic, a lot of times you have no idea they're drunk."

One heavy drinker of Harrelson's acquaintance, "he was big on grapefruit and vodka, with very little grapefruit. He could carry the thing and never spill a drop. He was so functional. It was impressive. He has since passed. He was a good character."

Buying a house...

Ok, so I would like to buy a house. What kind? How big? Who cares. Anything with a couple bedrooms is fine, but this is practically off topic.

My question deals with the economy. What I would like to know from the experienced minds on here is when you think the housing market may crash again. Tough to say yes, but I would like to hear you opinions.

Second question, what would be the difficulty of getting a home loan after the crash versus now and what sort of interest rates are we going to be seeing?

The Ron Paul Sticker Still Works

I live in New Jersey, but travel a lot because I work in the music business. My car still has the Ron Paul Revolution bumper sticker in the back bumper of my car. I still have people approach me and sometimes it gives me time to open some minds in the process.

I recently went back to college to get my masters degree. I always drive my car to the nearby campus where a ton of students are at. I get in a lot of conversations and even get asked about the bumper sticker.
