LOL. The "poke your nose in other people's business" table has turned.

Egypt said it was "closely following the escalation of protests" after the fatal shooting of an unarmed black teenager by a white policeman on 9 August, reports the BBC.

Iran added its voice to the criticism, with Majid Takht-Ravanchi, the deputy foreign minister for European and American Affairs, saying the unrest was a sign of "the phenomenon of racism" in the West.

Rand Paul’s pursuit of black voters splits GOP

Gingrich applauds, while others wonder whether its pyrrhic

By Ralph Z. Hallow | Tuesday, August 19, 2014
The Washington Times

Rand Paul is courting black voters unabashedly, traveling a path not taken by most Republican presidential hopefuls since Jack Kemp blitzed urban America with his message of economic hope and opportunity two decades ago.

From his speech at a historically black university to his essay decrying the militarization of local police, Mr. Paul is clearly trying to bridge a gap between the party of Abraham Lincoln and a minority voter base that has massively voted for Democrats.

But whether the senator from Kentucky can leverage his libertarian conservative views and anti-government message into a presidential electoral advantage depends on factors that may extend beyond his control.

Standing up

Before reading on, please answer the question – How did the United States get in the shape it is today?

The answer that you provided to yourself was likely akin to – “because the People never stood against the encroachment of the government.”

I often hear people say, “I can’t _____________________ because I’m fearful of the consequences,” “I can’t stop ________________ because…,” “I must do __________________ because…,” etc. Yet those same folks yearn for change and seem perplexed why nothing ever changes.

What does it mean to stand up? Supposing you abhor ballet, would you consider caving into your significant other’s requests for a trip to a ballet as standing up? No, absolutely not. Standing up always entails potential consequences. Standing up, in that situation, would be saying something like, “No, I’m not going to the ballet. It makes me throw up a little and gives me nightmares,” despite the possibility of ending up in the doghouse.

The Daily Paul Needs Your Help: Summer 2014 Fundraiser Day 9 - 83% Complete!


Dear Friends,

We opened up registration for the first time in a long time, and that revealed some bugs in the site that are in need of fixing. The DP is like a big old drafty house, in need of some maintenance and repair, and for that I need your help.

I went to set up a donation widget at that great free site chipin.com, and its gone! That internet institution, ChipIn is no more. That's what happens to free resources on the internet. Eventually, they disappear.

Please don't let that happen to the Daily Paul. You can make a one time or recurring contribution to the DP with your PayPal account or your credit or debit card.


PayPal address: bull@bullnotbull.com


Bitcoin is also gladly accepted at the Daily Paul's official bitcoin address:

Since ChipIn is no more, and there are no other free substitutes that I can find, I will be updating the thermometer manually.
