Pelosi’s past statements about the cupboard being bare sound kind of hollow, don’t they?

You can’t justify a yes vote without reading the bill, I can guarantee that our representatives didn’t do that before voting for it (it was over 1,500 pages).
Indiana has 9 representatives in congress, they all voted in favor of this bill, that’s where we start.

Sun News in Canada did a story on last year’s flood in High River, Alberta that the RCMP (police) took advantage of to break and enter private residents (15:04):

Here is the full 1:11:01 documentary “Broken Trust” if you have the time or inclination:
Gun registration is how the RCMP knew which houses to break into, that is why the US must never have a gun registry. I will not comply.
The economics of the police state; a Mises Institute lecture by Tom Woods (39:34):

Now lobbyist firms in Washington are pushing for the federal government to outlaw GMO labeling (2:04):
Congress should do the opposite, create a law forcing all food to be labeled for GMO content. (There I go, dreaming again.)
Need a good laugh or twenty? (20:31):
Someone broke down the news conference in 57 seconds of pure comedy if 20 minutes is just too much:
Listen to this press conference held by CA state senator Kevin DeLeon. This man’s ignorance of firearms (that he legislates) is amazing….it is California so anything is possible.
Does it concern anyone else that Obama has put one of George Soros leading henchmen (John Podesta) in charge of the NSA probe?:
Can’t help but think about the fox guarding the henhouse analogy.
My common core bash for this issue (1:47):

Obamacare…it’s not too late.
NY governor Andrew Cuomo makes it very clear; extreme conservatives have no place in NY:
Governor Cuomo, I was ready to move to your state….now I will have to reconsider. Ass monkey!

He was merely speaking in regards to state of politics in NY state, not the people of the state.
Why would a staunch liberal (Dianne Feinstein, D-CA) be such a supporter of the NSA and its spying on citizens?:

Watch the video, read the article. What do you think?
How much more corruption are we going to allow before WE take action?
Thomas Washburn, not fit to teach (2:31):

Michael Snyder op-ed on Thomas Jefferson:
He wouldn’t stand a chance of being elected today. Anyone else that read the article draw direct parallels to Ron Paul?

These two stories are unrelated, except they both involve rape on young Americans by muslims (I’m sure it’s just a coincidence). I think it’s time for some vigilante justice.
Texas state senator Wendy Davis, not what she appears to be (2:56):
She’s a D, so I’m sure that the MSM will be gentle with her.

Maybe her statement of him “never walking a mile in my shoes” was just a poor attempt at humor.
Can’t say I’m surprised by this video (2:23):
Politics is a nasty game.
Tom Woods interview with Ben Swann (27:44):
I like these two guys.
I read an interesting Gallup Poll. 25% of Americans identify at R’s; 31% identify as D’s; and a whopping 42% identify as Independents. The L’s have work to do.
If the general population would spend some time to learn what libertarians are about, this country could be transformed in short order…sadly the MSM ignores them and the masses are to self-absorbed to care.
I just found this interesting, so I thought I would include it (16:35):
A declassified cold war training film from 1960 on how the USAF gets around electric jamming, circa 1960.
