This; the systematic deconstruction and confounding of the functionality of the world's strongest economy, is a greater threat to National Security than any other threat America faces. The failure of the United States to be able to generate natural capital as a means of natural economic processes cascades into every other factor in the functionality of the civil society.

Educate yourselves, friends. We are allowing this through our complacency and lack of will to prevent the obviously predictable. Without the force of public will against an uncontrolled, wildly reckless Federal Government, there will be absolutely no way to recover from what Mark Levin has been saying for over a decade is unavoidable. 
The Federal Reserve is using their monetary policy to subsidize our out of control government spending and borrowing, all while the Obama administration attacks the private sector through regulations

Maybe he meant the tea party in the 1700's. Yeah it's their fault.

There is no value for humanity on the Left any longer. Anyone who defends this, or Planned Parenthood, given the evidence of pure evil being inflicted on the truly defenseless, is without any meaningful redeeming value, and should be deeply ashamed of themselves.
 
I honestly don't even know what to say. 
The organization that has released six videos exposing the scandal of Planned Parenthood selling aborted babies and their body parts has released a new undercov

The most interesting part of this wonderful personal tragedy is that Hillary continues to maintain she's done nothing wrong, and her campaign for President is somehow undamaged by this. She's obviously committed a felony. Spilling TS material at any time is punishable by several decades in prison. The United States was at war when she was Secretary of State. The punishment for this is much worse. 
Team Clinton blasts criticism as "misinformation" and "nonsense."

Life isn't about going along to get along. It's about ensuring you are a whole person when you die. Every time you give up ground that wasn't earned (i.e.: to a bully), you lose a bit of yourself.

Standing up for yourself, when you are right, is never a bad thing. 
 
Avoiding conflict at all costs isn't good for anyone:
Growing up, I got high marks for my mild manner and good behavior. I was the “good kid” who never caused trouble or made a fuss. This has carried over into adulthood, with me avoiding every argument like the plague. But being non-confrontational as an adult is more damaging and debilitating than it is helpful.

And then what? Buying the artifacts from ISIS keeps then from being destroyed. Punishing the buyers, on the other hand, does absolutely nothing to ISIS, and is a disincentive for those otherwise inclined to buy the artifacts.

Sounds like a good plan. Go with that.
 
Antiquities looted by Islamic State militants are showing up on the US market, the Federal Bureau of Investigation warned, adding that any buyers could be prosecuted for providing financial support to terrorists.

AstroTurf, oddly outlawed in many cities as a suitable, zero water usage replacement for lawns in drought stricken California, pays pretty damn good when it has nothing to do with water!

I don't doubt it. They are affiliated with MoveOn.org. I am simply saying there are organizations like this on both sides. FreedomWorks is similar to MoveOn.org and I am sure they work with other groups to move their agenda forward. Any 501(c)4 group could raise and spend money to push a political message. "Grassroots" organizations that have actually been majority funded by a handful of billionaires and millionaires are becoming common (again, on both sides) and lots of money has been spent on phone campaigns, petitions, and voter drives. Using paid flacks or ambitious interns who are hoping it will lead to paid or politically well connected positions in the future has becoming standard practice, especially since the Citizens United ruling.

We go to Mahoroba monthly. I'm a HUGE fan of their pizza bun, and I also like the sausage bun. My wife likes the Kobe Cream bun so much we named our dog Kobe. I know... Its weird. I don't really understand, either, but she's Chinese, and I'm still learning, even after 10 years together, about the cultural idiosyncrasies. So far we've had three dogs named after food. Anyway, the baked goods at this joint are awesome, and everyone should get up on this!

Todd, the GM for the HI San Clemente, was VERY engaged with pretty much every part of my stay. I traveled on business. The network connectivity for the room I was in was excellent as far as speed, but the WIFI signal wasn't strong. It didn't impact my usage, but I was concerned about whether or not my smaller devices (phone, tablet) were going to be able to connect with their smaller antennae. No worries. Todd opened the restaurant last week. I had the pleasure of sitting at the bar and talking to him and some of his very interesting patrons last night, and let me tell you, I was very happy for the company. Todd seems genuinely thrilled to come to work. I don't know what sort of job a chain hotel GM is, but I can imagine its not very rewarding unless you get to know your guests. Todd showed he had the desire to not only engage you one on one, but also, he showed he had the "give a damn" attitude that I don't often see in my many travels. Good on ya, Todd. Your hotel was a gem and I WILL stay there again!

If you're a working traveler, don't stay here. The internet connection is $9.95 for one device unless you're a Gold Level Hilton Honors member, and it's very slow (<1mbps). Cell service on Verizon is poor. The room was great, but the ability to work made my stay not worth the Per Diem.

The roll selection wasn't very wide, but the rolls were very good, and the fish was fresh. The owner looked to have been a sushi chef for a long time, and most of what he was doing was from muscle memory, a sign of a seasoned veteran of the craft. All in all, a very enjoyable experience.

This is a great place to stop for the night if you have work to do. Internet connection is fast and stable. Room is small, but its clean, and the bed is comfortable. Verizon has 4G in this area, but the connection wasn't very good. Internet connection in my room was good on wifi, and the room is wired, as well, though I would have had to have my own cable or would have been required to have a $25 deposit for a 6ft piece of CAT5e. Walking distance to Outback, a sushi place, and a bowling alley that has 40 beers on tap. Not bad!

The service was friendly and quick to greet. The beer is fair to middling, but the IPA shows some promise. The IPA's afterbite was heavy, but it wasn't too much of a kick in the mouth that I didn't want to drink more. The porter was brewed with barley that was over burnt, and the flavor is run over by the smoke all over the mouth. The Blueberry Ale is a joke. I don't know that I would lead a sampler with it, but DTB did. The unfiltered wheat has an alcohol content so low its report on the sampler graphic may have been the result of a messed up test (3.5%). It also had a banana flavor, which I am not sure should ever be associated with beer. The lemon wedge didn't help. The honey blonde ale is adequate, and serves as a good pairing for the fries and club wrap I had for dinner. I say fries and wrap because the side for my dinner was bigger than the main course. Nit a bad experience, but I've had better when on the road. Paso Robles isn't the smallest place I go to regularly, but the town has a small town feel, and this brewery carries that off easily.
