I thought I'd create a thread so we can all keep up on how things turn out in Scotland.

Missing Money: Uncle Sam’s Accounting is Suspect
by Josh Feldman
September 15th, 2014
The Young Turks’ Cenk Uygur rarely has kind words for Republicans, but on Monday he said he would be willing to bet money that Rand Paul would beat Hillary Clinton and win the presidency in 2016.
Uygur credited Paul as a “voice of reason” on fighting ISIS, in contrast to Clinton’s hawkishness. He agreed that “our invasion of Iraq in the first place and all of the other bombings we’ve done in the Middle East… has in fact led to the rise of ISIS.”
Republican Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky called the plan “ludicrous” on the Senate floor before the vote.
“No one knows where these arms are going to wind up … We don’t even know who these groups are.”
Paul — known for his non-interventionist approach — said “we need to stay the heck out of their civil war … It is their war and they need to fight it.”
He had his green flight suit on and when he got close to me, I leaned toward his ear and said...hey man...just so you know, none of us want you guys to go off to fight yet another war for the bankers.
He smiled and said "Thank You!"
I didn't expect him to say that so it caught me a little off guard and so I replied..."so you know that all these damn wars are for the international bankers?" He smiled at me again and said..."Oh yeah, we know...BELEIVE ME...We Know!"
It was my time to head off to the teller so I just said something like...that's great or that's excellent...and walked away.
When I got back to my car I was telling my wife about the conversation I just had with the young fighter pilot. She said, I bet he loved your shirt...I had completely forgotten that I had on one of my Ron Paul Revolution T-Shirts.
Regardless, it made my day!
I keep livestock. I take tremendous pride in giving them a very comfortable life. They have good shelter, plenty of organic food, clean water and immediate healthcare at the first sign of any illness or injury.
The government keeps taxpayers. They make a big deal of offering subsidized housing, food stamps, water treatment plants and now they even give us Obamacare.
I know why I want my animals to be content. I plan to eat them. I wonder what the government plans for taxpayers?
My view of the world has changed since I got serious about farming. I have come to suspect that the decimation of family farms in this country is because too many farmers will end up asking the same question I am asking.
(Don't worry, they are not cannibals. They just want to consume the fruits of your labors.)
VIDEO: Sen. Rand Paul Argues Against U.S. Arming Syrian Rebels on Senate Floor - 9/18/14
Former Rep. Ron Paul’s push to audit the Federal Reserve got another boost Wednesday when the House passed the bill for the second time in three years, and by a bigger margin than before.
The bill, now sponsored by Rep. Paul Broun, Georgia Republican, was approved on a 333-92 vote, with all but one Republican and 106 Democrats in favor of it. That’s a major jump from last time, when a majority of Democrats voted against it.

For those who believe in marijuana and cannabis freedom, the future has never been brighter. Right now there is an awakening to the benefits of cannabis for medicinal purposes, specifically something called CBD oil. But is the new CBD craze being manipulated by media and politicians? If it weren’t we wouldn’t need to do a show about it.
The first step toward truth is to be informed.
Take Action: View the "Activate" Plan at the end of the story
I would just like to share a few of my observations from my recent trip to Russia (Moscow and vicinity). These are simply my observations and thoughts and by no means is this an in-depth report/comparison of the US/Russian political systems or societies. We all know that any country has its own unique problems.
That being said, it was eye-opening and even scary to view firsthand the differences between our nations at this point in time. What I saw was in stark contrast to the way Russia is depicted in our media. This being my first trip to Russia, I did not know what to expect.
Arrival (SVO Airport)
1. Entered immigration, NO armed officers, just the average immigration workers. I walked up to a friendly and smiling lady, she stamped my passport and waved me on.
2. Wow, that was easy, I thought, surely customs would be more like the U.S. I approached the customs section, had nothing to declare, I started to take my backpack off to show to the official, but she didn't seem to think I required extra scrutiny and waved me through.
3. That was it, in 10 minutes I was let loose in the "Evil Russian" empire.
4. I walked through the airport, searching for armed police/paramilitary, but I couldn't find any! I saw maybe 1 armed police officer in the airport. Very strange.
5. Maybe it was halftime in the war on terror in Russia. There were no stupid "threat level" announcements or battalions of TSA workers...just a chill airport like you might have seen here in the 60s.
During my stay:
1. I can't stress enough how CLEAN and ornate Moscow is, I was blown away. It was expensive though.
It is a rare morning that Mark can sleep in, so I got dressed in the dark. The chickens don't care if I am color coordinated. Turned out I had my "I Support Ron Paul" T-shirt on. Once Mark got up, we headed to "the big city" for some supplies.
First stop was the local Farmer's Supply where I was in line behind a man in a "Don't Tread On Me" T-shirt. I had something covering my shirt, so I let my arms drop down until he could read it. We exchanged a smile that said "Glad to see you."
