    Wow! A couple of years ago I took my sons to the library to meet the writer. I've got a picture with "Captain Underpants" somewhere. They are going to totally bug me about taking them to see this....unless they've gotten too old now.

    Ron Paul has no right to criticize Trump escalating war all over the world for no particular reason whatsoever because Ron Paul once voted for force against people he believed were responsible for killing 3,000 Americans. /sarcasm (PS. Just in case your sarcasm meter is broken I was being sarcastic. Sadly, though, there are people on this forum that think that way.)

    I'm considering a situation where the FBI lacked probable cause to get a warrant but wanted to go on a fishing expedition. But FISA courts have been quite lax so that's probably not likely.

    Interesting video. Question for everyone. Say if the FBI "bought" your browsing history from your ISP. No warrant because the didn't do a wiretap or perform a search. Acceptable or not?

    Ummmm....okay. Not sure what your point is but okay. Argue on friend....argue on. My point is simple. Company A selling consumer B's private information to company C is a different scenario from Company A selling something to consumer B who sells it to consumer C.

    I'm all for free markets. My point is that you have to compare apples to apples. Company A selling product to consumer B who then resells the product is one thing. company A selling product to consumer B and then selling consumer B's private information to company C is something altogether different. You have to look at correct analogies to come to correct conclusions. Now, let's look at company A selling consumer B's private information to company C. Sure, consumer B can decide "screw company A" and go with company D. But how is consumer B going to know that his private information is being sold? Surely company A would have a strong incentive to keep that information hidden from the consumer to avoid loss of business while at the same time selling consumer B's information. One way around this would be to require companies to get permission before selling data. Now the ISPs' argument was "Well Facebook gets to sell customer data so why can't we?" But guess what Facebook does when you sign up? It requires you to agree to a privacy policy statement. That statement says how they plan to use your private data. Most people don't read it. Guess what? The ISPs could do the same thing. Most people would just blindly click "yes" and opt in without blinking an eye. You need high speed internet right? So....what were the ISPs really complaining about? What "freedom" has been protected? Oh...and on the flipside I suppose a private watchdog group could try to find out clandestinely which ISPs buy your private information and which don't by trying to buy the information themselves. Anyway, from how I see it, this is much ado about nothing. If you don't assume your ISP, the NSA, major corporations and even decent hackers have access to much of your private information then you haven't been paying attention to anything Edward Snowden and others have had to say.

    So many ways to go with this. First, as you may know I am a second hand thrift store shopper. I rarely buy anything new. I used to allow myself two guilty pleasures. One was full service gasoline, and the other was Stephen King books. I thought he lost a bit of his edge as the years went on but churning out content like he does/did isn't easy. Then two things happened. First: The Girl Who Loved Tom Gordon. That book should have either been a short story or simply remained an idea in a notebook. Second, he's a progressive socialist pig. So since he's apparently run out of fresh ideas for scary scripts, he's going to rehash It. Seems about right.

    I'm not saying they don't. I was simply cleaning up a false analogy. Dannno's analogy would apply to someone who bought internet service from an ISP having the right to put up wireless hospot and sell access to it without the ISPs permission. What's at stake is the ISP reselling information garnered from use of their product. Two entirely different things. Now at some point a company shouldn't have the right to sell images of you without your permission. Here's a good example. Say if a department store puts cameras in changing rooms to prevent shop lifting. Should they have the automatic right to sell those pictures/videos? I would say no. Maybe you think otherwise?

    I do that with the Google image search feature. (Look up wildflowers) Just tested your idea by Googling an image on Craigslist and then running it through Google shopping. Yes its doable. If you wanted to build this as a web app I do that. We apps can be turned into phone apps using Phonegap. I'd be happy to work with you on this as I have time. Regardless i won't steal your million dollar idea. I'm already working on a few of my own. ;)

    What is sensible at this point about keeping troops in Iraq for years? Seriously, you want to defend that position as being sensible in 2017? Okay. Go right ahead. Using your logic then there is no reason to ever criticize anything Obama ever did because someone could argue "Well he did what he thought was sensible." Obamacare. "Trying to take care of people who can't afford healthcare is sensible." Climate change initiatives. "Many scientists say CO2 is destroying the planet so Obama trying to do something about it is sensible." Now here's a question for you. How is posting a thread showing where Trump did something I disagreed with "freaking out?" If Ron Paul did something I disagreed with I would post it. So far he hasn't. And yes that includes the vote to take out Osama Bin Laden. Taking out an enemy that directly attacked us makes sense. Does it not make sense to you? Had you been in congress would you have voted to do nothing? Ron didn't vote for an indefinite stay in Afghanistan and nation building but that's what Bush did anyway. You want to attack Ron on that vote, well how would you have voted? In this case the alternative is easy to see. We don't need to be involved in Iraq when the Iraqi forces already had ISIS on the run. The first thing we need to do to stop ISIS is to stop funding groups affiliated with ISIS. Tulsi Gabbard has a bill in congress right now to do that. So Trump has a really good opportunity to get behind something that would actually stop ISIS. Why hasn't he? Instead of going after me for what you apparently think is hypocrisy, why aren't you tweeting your hero Trump to support real change? Okay. I will ask you a question. When are you going to stop sleeping with your sister? See. I just asked a question. I didn't make a statement. Sometimes statements are made by asking question. And you made a dishonest statement with your fake question. It's the false choice fallacy.

    Interesting. Ya know, I could technically stitch together multi-movement pieces into 40-60 minutes tracks. That's how it would be done in concert, except for intermission. But it seems quite unorganized. Is there a way I could write out for listeners the name of what they're listening to? (i.e. 00:00-40:00= "Allegro", 41:00-85:00="Adagio Appassionato", etc)

    Yeah, the guy was digging himself deeper and deeper. The first post with his use of bitch and cunt made the point, but he kept on going and going, indicating to me deeper issues than the obvious. Whatever.

    As for obvious intentions, yeah, I'm on board with that. Thanks for the clarity. I didn't think your head rolled like that. He was baiting anyone to be insulted so he could go, "See?! Not so much fun when YOU'RE the one... hypocrite!" To go through that much gyration to attempt to elicit a response tells me he ain't getting laid at all. Little wonder, too, I would think. Yick. That sort of chronic bitter anger is not very attractive... at least not to me.

    Hope you slept well.

The Liberty Tree

by MelissaWV on 04-05-2012 at 07:50 PM
Once upon a time, there was a land called Ron Paul Forums. There was no "Liberty Forest" yet; the entire thing was a seedling, sprouting up in a bad neighborhood called the Internet. Surrounded by pornography, cute kitten photos, and videos that people mostly created by aiming a camera at their television, a website grew a little bigger.

I came to RPFs out of anger. At the time, I had my own Ron-related venture, or at least a stake in it. As VTV and DrSteveParent and
