It’s another shot across the bow of the Constitution: the White House has announced it will micromanage the census. It is said Obama and crew — you can almost hear Rahm Emanuel cracking his knuckles in Obama’s ear — decided to lord over the census after California Rep. Barbara Lee, chair of the Congressional Black Caucus, and Hispanic groups complained to the White House about Judd Gregg, the Republican senator from New Hampshire slated to head the Commerce Department. Lee, the Caucus, and Hispanic groups complained Gregg couldn’t be trusted to conduct to run the census, at least not to their liking, and in response the Obama administration hijacked the census.

The way Ron Paul tells it, his more than 30 years of speaking and writing about money, inflation, and the Federal Reserve System attracted only limited interest outside libertarian and constitutionalist circles.

Acid rain, caused predominantly by oil and coal burning, smelting, and car exhaust, has been falling throughout most parts of the east coast of the U.S., according to an explosive feature article in Mother Jones, December, 1977. The acidity of the rain contaminates the soils, damages crops, stunts the growth of trees, lowers the pH of even the most remote high altitude lakes, thus wiping out entire native fish species and causes other potentially disastrous occurrences. In over 50 percent of all the Adirondack lakes most remote from civilization, all the fish have died. Biologists at Cornell University found that rain and snow throughout the eastern U.S. falls with 100 times more acidity that it did a generation ago. It was the #8 censored story of 1977.

— continued foreign wars; Continue reading
