Rand: Kentucky clears path for dual run

Daily Paul - Sun, 2015-03-08 01:45 +0000

BOWLING GREEN, Ky. — Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul took his first step toward running for president with state party leaders on Saturday endorsing his plan for a presidential caucus in 2016.The move clears the way for Paul to run for president and for re-election to his Senate seat without breaking a state law that bans candidates from appearing on the ballot twice in the same election.The state GOP's central committee must still sign off on the proposal in August.

But, more importantly for Paul, Saturday's vote by the Republican Party of Kentucky's executive committee was an early endorsement of his unusual plan for dual campaigns ahead of a wide open Republican presidential primary."I just want to be treated like many other candidates around the country who have not been restricted," Paul told reporters after the vote.

Paul has characterized himself as a "different kind of Republican," and campaigning for two offices at once would certainly set him apart among the Republican field. Of the numerous potential Republican candidates, Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida is the only one also up for re-election in 2016.

Another Dubious Jobs Report

Daily Paul - Sun, 2015-03-08 01:16 +0000

by Paul Craig Roberts

According to the payroll jobs report today (March 6) the economy created 295,000 new jobs in February, dropping the rate of unemployment to 5.5%. However, the BLS also reported that the labor force participation rate fell and the number of people not in the labor force rose by 354,000.

In other words, the unemployment rate dropped because the labor force shrunk.

If the economy was in recovery, the labor force would be growing and the labor force participation rate would be rising.

The 295,000 claimed new jobs are highly suspect. For example, the report claims 32,000 new retail jobs, but the Census Bureau reports that retail sales declined in December and January. Why would retailers experiencing declining sales hire more employees?

In a nutshell

Daily Paul - Sun, 2015-03-08 00:11 +0000

Here's an excerpt from a speech by Patrick Barron given today (3/7/15) at Drake University at the annual convention of the Iowa Association of Political Scientists. The whole speech is excellent, but this paragraph struck me as being the very heart of the problem with our economic system. A wonderfully clear and concise explanation.

"The underlying problem, though, lies in the ability of all central banks to print fiat money; i.e., money that is backed by nothing other than the coercive power of the state via its legal tender laws. Central banks are really little more than legal counterfeiters of their own currencies. The pressure to print money comes from the political establishment that desires both warfare and welfare. Both are strictly capital consumption activities; they are not “investments” that can pay a return. In a sound money environment, where the money supply cannot be inflated, the true nature of warfare and welfare spending is revealed, providing a natural check on the amount of funds a society is willing to devote to each. But in a fiat money environment both war and welfare spending can expand unchecked in the short run, because their adverse consequences are felt later and the link between consumptive spending and its harm to the economy is poorly understood. Thus, both can be expanded beyond the recuperative and sustainable powers of the economy."

Genetically-Engineered Meat Isn’t Tested for Human Safety … Because It’s Treated as an “Animal Drug”

Daily Paul - Sat, 2015-03-07 18:57 +0000

Eater Beware …

USA Today reported last October that the FDA doesn’t even test the safety of genetically engineered food:

Q: Does the FDA test these foods before they’re allowed on the market?

A: No. Instead there is a voluntary consultation process. Genetically engineered foods are overseen by the FDA, but there is no approval process. Foods are presumed to be safe unless the FDA has evidence to the contrary, Jaffe says. The FDA “has to show that there may be a problem with the food, as opposed to the company needing to prove it’s safe to FDA’s satisfaction before it can get on the market,” he says.

Now we know why.

Bruce Friedrich reports:

The problems begin with FDA’s bizarre decision to consider GE meat using its “New Animal Drug Approval” (NADA) process, a process designed for evaluation of new animal drugs (hence the name), not genetically engineered animals. The GE salmon themselves [which increase allergies in people eating them … but are still being approved for human consumption] are, according to this analysis, the animal drug. As food blogger Ari LeVaux explains on Civil Eats, “the drug per se is AquaBounty’s patented genetic construct… Inserted at the animal’s one-cell stage, the gene sequence exists in every cell of the adult fish’s body.”

The Frog and the Pothole

Daily Paul - Sat, 2015-03-07 17:10 +0000

Speaking of parables, here's one for you*:

- - -

One day Frog fell into a big pothole and couldn’t get out. It was too deep. Try as he might, he just couldn’t muster the energy to jump out of the hole. His friends, seeing the situation for what it was, bid Frog adieu and went on their way.

"So long, Frog. It was nice knowing you."

The next day they saw Frog, happily hopping around, going about his business.

“What happened, Frog? We thought you couldn’t get out!”

Parable of the Animal School

Daily Paul - Sat, 2015-03-07 15:04 +0000

I saw this and thought to share it.

Parable of the Animal School - Reflection on Public Indoctrination Education

Would you rather be an average doctor or an excellent carpenter? Would you rather be a mediocre teacher or an outstanding landscaper?

Once upon a time, all the animals in a special advanced animal kingdom became very excited about the new public school that was being formed for all the animal children. Highly credentialed administrators and planners organized the school and adopted a curriculum of well-rounded animal activities that they deemed important for the animal public. These consisted of running, climbing, swimming, and flying.

The animal parents flocked to the school, eager to enroll their children in this new progressive school. After all, they wanted the very best for their offspring. A good education was considered key to success, and the leaders in the Department of Animal Education knew best and researched and planned the curriculums.

What's been happening with the DP website?

Daily Paul - Sat, 2015-03-07 06:54 +0000

In the three years I've been coming to the DP almost everyday without fail, but I've noticed problems lately. For the last month or two I have noticed the website being down at least three times (that I'm aware of). Is there something different with the server? Has there been more traffic than usual? Or is the website being hacked? Just have to ask because I've noticed again today that it says the server is down for maintanence, again.

Central Banks Have Bankrupted the Financial System

Daily Paul - Sat, 2015-03-07 01:14 +0000

For six years, the world has operated under a complete delusion that Central Banks somehow fixed the 2008 Crisis.

All of the arguments claiming this defied common sense. A 5th grader would tell you that you cannot solve a debt problem by issuing more debt. Similarly, anyone with a functioning brain could tell you that a bunch of academics with no real-world experience, none of whom have ever started a business or created a single job can’t “save” the economy.

$6 Billion Goes Missing at State Department

Daily Paul - Fri, 2015-03-06 23:09 +0000

The Fiscal Times | By Brianna Ehley

The State Department has no idea what happened to $6 billion used to pay its contractors.

In a special “management alert” made public Thursday, the State Department’s Inspector General Steve Linick warned “significant financial risk and a lack of internal control at the department has led to billions of unaccounted dollars over the last six years.

The alert was just the latest example of the federal government’s continued struggle with oversight over its outside contractors.

Cop Pulls Assault Rifle, Threatens Protesters For Their ‘Constitutional Bullsh*’

Daily Paul - Fri, 2015-03-06 23:04 +0000
25:22 minutes

A Houston, Texas cop was recently caught on video illegally detaining protesters and threatening them with his department-issued assault rifle. His reason? Protesters were spouting what he called “Constitutional bullsh**.”

The video was recorded by Open Carry Texas and uploaded to their YouTube channel after a recent peaceful assembly where they advocated for “Constitutional Carry,” which is already legal in Texas when it comes to rifles of any sort (scroll down for video).

The group passed out flyers and pamphlets at the protest, in order to inform locals about the Constitutional and state-acknowledged right to carry firearms for self-defense. The group wants to see Texas allow open carry of handguns as well, and they are actively working to promote legislative changes to accommodate Texans who chose to carry openly.

'Fiscally conservative' Republicans want to raise taxes on workers making less than $406,750

Daily Paul - Fri, 2015-03-06 22:59 +0000

Senators Marco Rubio (R., Fla.) and Mike Lee (R., Utah)– lauded among Republican politicians as two of their more “fiscally conservative” members – want to raise income tax rates on workers making under $406,750 a year.

Their proposal creates two federal income tax brackets: 15% for earnings under $75,000 and a whopping 35% for earnings over $75,000. It also eliminates most deductions – notably state and local taxes and mortgage interest – while granting a larger credit for taxpayers with children.

School Choir Director And College Professor Freak Out And Call The Cops On Man Legally Carrying A Gun

Daily Paul - Fri, 2015-03-06 20:27 +0000

A Michigan man was not acting erratically or threatening other people at an Ann Arbor high school music recital, but he was openly — and legally — carrying a firearm.

That was enough for a school choir director to call police and for a music professor to publicly shame him at the event.

The incident happened Thursday evening at Pioneer High School when Steven Lorenz, the director of choirs at the school, spotted the man openly carrying a gun and called police.
