    LOL. It's all good. Here is the response I got from the elder. Thanks. This information is so prophecy fulfilling. What she was looking for is that even people who are not prechers are talking about a possible economic collapse and that there may be martial law. Whether this particular prediction actually happens in the next couple of years is irrelevant for her purposes. As I've often said with anything conspiracy related, the key is "know your audience." Some things that are a turn off to some people are exactly what someone else needs to hear to be convinced of whatever it is you're trying to say. I think that's why Ron Paul's message is itself so varied in presentation even though it's working through the same concepts.

    Nope. :( Grey State looked ominous and scary. This looks amaturish and campy. The vilians look cartoonish like from a bad Superman movie. "Hello Mr. President. Now is the time." May this film wake people up? Possibly. But only to the point of having a good belly laugh.

    Cool. So you are familar with the power of the prediction. :) Ummmm...no it wasn't. I didn't post any videos until post #4. You "warned" against timed predictions in post #2. So unless you were able to somehow "predict" the video I was going to post....:rolleyes: Sorry. I wasn't being clear. I'm saying that if I was to take your advice and tell someone that specifically asked me for a video where Ron predicted an economic collapse some video on the business cycle then I would be arrogant. I don't know precisely why she asked for the video. Maybe she's doing an overview of predictions being made about the economy? If so, then what good would a video on the business cycle do her?

    Oh the federal government does a lot of things wrong. I'm glad that Rand has identified at least one thing wrong with the drug war that he might actually be able to do something about.

    ^That is what Rand also should basically what Rand should have said when asked about Ted Cruz calling Mitch McConnell a liar. "I have no opinion on the personal squabble between those to men. I am focused on being an effective senator. Thank you for your question. Next!"

    By Rand pushing this angle rather than the "legalize freedom" approach he's drawing attention to the fact that our corrupt government is simultaneously locking people up for being hooked on heroin while blocking access to medical treatment that could possibly get them off of addiction to heroin. Good job Rand.

    ^This. And just because a prediction may not come true doesn't mean the person with the message shouldn't give it. The prophet Jonah didn't want to go to Ninevah with God's message of doom and destruction because he was afraid the people of Ninevah might repeat and the disaster be averted and he would be seen as a false prophet. That and he just didn't like the Ninevites.

    Disaster predictions are also a great way to gain credibility, or have you missed all of the times where Peter Schiff has been announced as the man who predicted the 2008 housing crash? And who said anything about a time prediction? Further it's rather arrogant to answer someone who asks about a video concerning the possibility of a coming financial collapse and martial law with "Here. Watch this video about the business cycle." The reason people care about whatever it is you want them to care about is that it will either lead to some spectacular good or some spectacular bad. Get people interested in what you are talking about and then you can educate them. Or you can bore them to death. Your choice.

    You trying to put her to sleep? LOL. She asked what Ron was predicting, not for a complete seminar on Austrian Economics. I think its a guarantee that if we keep doing what we are doing we will end up in an economic collapse. And our particular church has always taught that one is eventually coming anyway. (And that's because the Bible teaches that there will one day be a one world economic system and that can only come after an economic collapse.) But thanks anyway.

    The "sideline sitter" comment by LE is disingenuous. She was hardcore Trump when he wasn't even the last possible GOP choice. Ted Cruz supporting then going against the TPP is "grandstanding" but Trump supporting and then going against the Iraq and Libya wars, gun control, H1B Visas, tax increases on the "wealthy" etc is all "clarification." Cruz marrying someone who worked at Goldman Sachs and with CFR ties made him unfit to be POTUS. But Trump choosing such people as advisors is just fine. Trump can do no wrong. Others could do no right. Then when it came down to just Trump v Hillary it's "Well I'm not going to sit on the sidelines." So, in 2008 those of us who didn't vote for McCain/Palin were in the wrong? In 2012 those of us who didn't vote for Romney/Ryan were wrong? Ron Paul was wrong not to endorse either of those two joke tickets? Ron Paul will be wrong this time for not endorsing Trump? We are seriously living in bizzarro world.

    So Trump knowingly hiring someone who worked for Goldman Sachs is okay as long as this person is good at whatever it is that he does? And I guess that goes for the terrorist lobbiest then? The cognitive dissonance you are jumping through to continue your unqualified support of Trump is astounding.

    You know the Romans had a good idea. They planted olive trees along the roads they built. Then they granted ownership of those trees to local nobels in exchange for those nobels paying for the upkeep of that section of road. So what could be planted on our rights of ways? Hemp? Switchgrass? Medicinal marijuana? Solar power? Maybe solar powered wifi? I wouldn't mind paying the equivalent of the gas tax to have free wifi while driving down the interstate. This is a real issue as more and more legislators are looking at the increasing use of electric cars and saying "We need tax by mile because the gas tax will decrease over time." But leasing of the rights of ways to private entities could make up for any shortfall from effectively no longer having a gas tax.

    This was a local church elder. She wanted to know who it was I supported last presidential election. Of course I said Ron Paul last time and Rand Paul this time. She was curious because she saw something where he was talking about a coming economic marshall law and wanted to talk about that at prayer meeting. I'm sure I can find something. But if someone has some good "America's economy is going to hell in a handbasket and our freedoms will go with them" speeches by Ron Paul please post them here. I'm going to send her some Peter Schiff stuff too.

    LibertyEagle liberally intereprets Trumps plan so that it means what she wants it to mean. And the key word here is "liberally." She has adopted the liberal media's false assertion that Trump's plan is "anti illegal immigrant" when it actually gives illegal immigrants a path to citizenship. Trump's own son can't set LibertyEagle straight on this because what she wants to hear is that the illegal immigrants will be deported and not allowed to come back or at least be sent to the back of the line. Trump's plan is to deport them, then put them at the front of the line. He said himself he wants to expidite the process of bringing them back in.

    Note that you have nothing to say about Trump being for the Iraq and Libya wars before being against them. Trump can say and do anything he wants to do and its okay, and not "grand standing" because it's Trump. Trump says "the rich should pay more in taxes?" It doesn't matter cause it's Trump. Trump changes his position and it's "clarification". Anyone you don't like? It's "grandstanding." Sad. Not sad. Pathetic.

    I'm for people not signing stupid pledges like that in the first place. Remember the judge in the Bible named Jeptha? After the Lord granted him victory in battle he pledged that he would offer the first thing that came out of his house to the Lord as a burnt offering. The first thing to come out of his house was his only daughter. Oops! Remember Israel's first king Saul? (The one who came before David). After God granted his son Jonathan a great victory over the Philistines, Saul made a pledge that all the men should fast and that anyone who didn't observe the fast should be put to death. But Jonathan didn't get the message and ate some honey. Saul was going to put Jonathan to death, but thankfully the rest of the soldiers thought Saul was an idiot and prevented that. Again. Oops! The moral of the story is, don't make stupid pledges. I'll support the GOP nominee no matter who he is? So someone gets the GOP nomination and is later revealed to be some Manchurian candidate but you have to stick with him because, by golly, you signed a pledge? Really?

    I had a different thought. I think this proves that these stupid pledges to support the GOP nominee no matter who that person is are now exposed as bullshit so next go round the liberty candidate, whoever that person is, can claim there's strong precedent not to even take such a moronic pledge in the first place. And for the record, I'm not one of those who through a hissy fit when Rand endorsed Romney. I was more upset at how Deb et al were treated by that fink Jesse Benton.

    And what does the Iraq war that Donald Trump supported before being against it have to do with our national defense? What does the war with Libya that Donald Trump demanded before being against it have to do with our national defense? Where has Eric Erikson or Ted Cruz voiced any support for Common Core or No Child Left Behind? And for the record, the reason Ted Cruz called Mitch McConnell a "liar" is because he felt betrayed by McConnell on what was in the TPA bill. That's some way to show support for the TPP. :rolleyes: Oh but Donald Trump can say and do anything as long as he "clarifies" it later. :rolleyes:

    If you can't see it's because you are willfully blind. There isn't a politician on the GOP side that doesn't say that they want jobs to go to Americans born here. Some say that you can't realistically deport everyone. During this stupid campaign season that has been called "amnesty." Okay. Well then deporting all of the illegal immigrants and bringing the good ones back in is amnesty after deportion. That's the point. You are playing silly straw man games here. The issue isn't that it's amnesty per say but it's amensty after deportation! Zippy provided you with the interview where Trump didn't just say he would let them come back legally, but that he would expidite the process! In other words, they go to the front of the line. How is that different from amensty after deporation? Oh yeah it isn't different but you just want to believe it's different somehow so you keep claiming that it is despite all evidence to the contrary. Pathetic.

    This. Most people on this forum a fiscally conservative and would never dream of supporting someone like Trump who says printing more money is the way to deal with debt or taxes on the rich should be raised or we should spend half a billion dollars deporting people only to bring most of them back.

The War of the Dandelions

I wrote this up this morning. Enjoy. Spread if you like it.

----------------------------
The War of the Dandelions

In one neighborhood of small town America, a father of five was terribly distraught at the dandelions overtaking his yard. He sent his children out to pick them all, paying them a small allowance. He was so proud of his yard, that he decided he should send his children out to neighboring yards on a daily basis to help his neighbors with their own
