Ok, so in the short term the dollar goes up in strength in reference to the Euro. That should drive the price of gold down for a short time. As the market crashes, gold will be sold to cover margin calls. Then, as the market shows it’s true worthless value, people will doubt everything and rush to the safety of gold, silver, etc. Don’t want to sound like a commercial, but I know what I’m going to do this month. ;)

Al Jazeera, the official recruiting channel for ISIS and AQ. They want teens to feel lousy about their country so they are more likely to join up with the “winning” terrorist team!
Unfortunately, the low-information voters on both side will simply go with the name the recognize. We could very well have another Bush-Clinton race, and that would make me cry for the country I love.

I like almost everything that Trump says, just as I am sure the German people liked everything their chancellor was saying in the 30s’. Too much power has been redirected to the executive branch and that man may be the one that grabs the pendulum. My vote (so far) goes for someone who puts freedom first, someone like Cruse.
Keep speaking Donald, the one good thing you are doing it throwing up those “3rd rail” issues that no one wants to talk about, but we all must.
I was for Cruz until he was all too ready to vote for the TPP - - changed his mind at the very last minute. Trump would be able to handle our problems a lot better. I agree with everything Trump says.
Nothing Trump said was inaccurate but I won't support him. He is not good for the country, the only thing he has going for him is his ego. I am voting for a true conservative who has already got under the skin of the Beltway Republicans and that is a good thing. Yes that is Cruz! You go Ted ! Runnin Bear

“Just moving it would be pretty expensive”
Nah! They can use my truck. Should handle the weight just fine. No charge!
Now, lets see if the Fed actually has it…..
People in Europe packed up and left everything behind. My grandparents left the farm in Russian occupied Poland in 1904 and came here. Freedom does not come free, its the most expensive thing on Earth and worth its weight in Gold.

What a bunch of BS. The real point of a “deal” is to prevent Iran from turning Israel into a block of glass and doing an EMP (or three) over our east coast. That all appears to be lost. Iran will not even agree in principal to NOT destroy Israel. Money? WTF. Once they open all their facilities to inspection, shut down all the centrifuges, and surrender all their enriched uranium, Then and only then should we talk about sanction relief. Of course, this is all a pipe dream, so I pray to God that he treats the souls of our Jewish friends well as they come into his kingdom and that we have somehow redeemed ourselves before the Obama Apocalypse hits here.
Or climb out of the cesspool in which the dwell and live in. Time to flush em all down the drain.

Although Trump will never win, I love how he is not afraid to jump into those “third rail” issues and speak his mind. Although other candidates publicly cringe when he does this, I suspect in private they are thanking him for being the lightning rod on issues they may believe but would not want to bring up themselves. (IMHO)
You should vote for him and see if we can't get away from professional politicians.
Never speak ill of anyone in our party.
Why must you preface your statement is such a way? O'Reilly was right the other night....Rebpulicans need to stop bickering and get united on winning the White House..in my opinion add a "straight Republican ticket" to that, from the county dog catcher to the school board to the city mayor, to the state Congress and Governorship, through the National Congress and White House.
@John 1776 --- "....... they may believe but would not want to bring up themselves." Allow me to rephrase, if I may John. " ... they may believe, but are too cowardly to say it themselves."
By the way, since you said Trump will never win, is it safe to assume that you won't be voting for the one candidate who has the courage to tell the truth, but may vote for one who is too cowardly to tell the truth? Just curious.
Prior to 2008, I would have never voted for Trump and would feel forced to hold my nose and vote for the best Republican in a Presidential election (or primary).
If voters are too damned stubborn to not vote for the only American in the race who has the guts to fight for America, then you knuckleheads deserve everything you're going to get.
I'm tired of the wimps who pretend to be tough.
I'm sick of hearing we must take the mythical high road (that has destroyed us).
I'm not listening to any politician that has to polish his statements according to some jackwagon communications "expert" like nasty little Bush sycophant Dana Perino.
Stand tall and fight for your country.
The same thing was said about Reagan "Although Reagan will never win". He won twice! And was one of if not thee best president this country has ever seen!
Do you know some inside information about our rigged elections that we don't ???
why not Oboma won twice
One thing he might do if he can get that far, is force the other candidates hands, then we can see if they're going to be cowards or will they stand and fight for us.
I disagree…it takes a lot to change the minds of the dead Dems that are voting for Obama/Hillary the Felon…and if we put the other 15 candidates all together it may equal one pair of testicles for the bunch…people want to hear someone…ANYONE..with BALLS AND BRAINS that is NOT a Lieing POS like Obama…Trump/Cruz!!! Trump can kick their ass and Cruz can explain to them what just happened…resistance is futile…and to shut the hell up you Liberal xxxxxxx!
Trump/Cruz would be az$ kicking.
Never say never ...
While I look at your clever post you are stating unequivocally that Trump will not win? As being an international business owner having participated in 13 general elections it’s kind of obvious you don’t have the political mileage under your belt to make such a “final definitive” statement. Trump has placed his entire empire on the line and he’s not backing off. He’s attacking the island and burning the boats behind him so there is no turning back. Trump doesn’t Iose and we will see a much polished Trump in the debates, he knows and we know this is imperative so let’s wait for the debates shall we before we pull this pin? For the first time in 30 years I received a political message from a politician, Trump, with not one word regarding contributing money, none! Did anyone think Obama would win….twice? This is now 21st century politics, the majority is fed up and we’re going to see some crazy out there regardless Trump is in it to win it friend.

Just what we need, our every move tracked. Seems the “mileage tax” is only an excuse to set up the infrastructure for the tracking.

"Just have the Muslim bakery bake it for them. I’m sure there will be no problem."
And if they don't, I'm sure the courts will fine them $135,000 or more.
The Muslim bakery will cater any gay wedding, as long as the "grooms" or "brides" and all wedding guests wear orange jump suits....
Thank God we are a country of laws and not a theocracy. They broke the law in Oregon, took it to court and lost just as they would have if they'd refused to an interracial couple which also is prohibited by Bible, or at least used to be. Here is the Biblical explanation of why black people and white people can't marry:
“Almighty God created the races white, black, yellow, malay and red, and he placed them on separate continents. And but for the interference with his arrangement there would be no cause for such marriages. The fact that he separated the races shows that he did not intend for the races to mix.” — Judge Leon M. Bazile, January 6, 1959
That was until the "black agenda" and PC made interracial marriages legal.
Anyway, they might want to put their efforts into electing representative who will make it legal to discriminate against blacks or Asians or fornicators or people getting married a second time without Biblical sanction or adulterers. Or they can appeal but I think they're SOL on that.
Or they can just freaking be happy for people who are in love and want to be married, even if one is black and the other white.
Or just have the fags support an LGBT bakery.
ModerateRepublican - "Here is the Biblical explanation of why black people and white people can’t marry:

You say that you are providing the "Biblical explanation" and then quote a judges opinion from 1959. No Biblical references at all, thus making your argument null and void.
And even the judge was wrong. God created mankind. He then separated the people at Babel when they tried to build a tower that reached to the heavens.
dkettring, if you knew the Bible better you'd understand Jefferson Davis, the President of the Confederacy understood:
"It [slavery] was established by decree of Almighty God...it is sanctioned in the Bible, in both Testaments, from Genesis to Revelation...it has existed in all ages, has been found among the people of the highest civilization, and in nations of the highest proficiency in the arts...Let the gentleman go to Revelation to learn the decree of God - let him go to the Bible...I said that slavery was sanctioned in the Bible, authorized, regulated, and recognized from Genesis to Revelation...Slavery existed then in the earliest ages, and among the chosen people of God; and in Revelation we are told that it shall exist till the end of time shall come. You find it in the Old and New Testaments - in the prophecies, psalms, and the epistles of Paul; you find it recognized, sanctioned everywhere."
Until you understand the Bible better than Jefferson Davis, or George Wallace, don't pretend you understand more than Biblical scholars did through most of country's history. Frankly I'm not interested in your "modern" revisionist PC interpretation of the Bible.
do you wear a funny wig.. or a business man costume or something to help you get in character?
or does it just fly out of you like Frank Caliendo doing Madden?
A little over 20 years ago, homosexuality was correctly considered a mental illness.
So was transgendered.
Now we celebrate both.
Should we not also celebrate any other mentally ill person that does not wish to be cured? Alcoholics should no longer be sent to AA, but have drunken parades down mainstreet to celebrate their drunkenness. If any of the drives of the floats is arrested for driving drunk, simple defense: I identified as a sober person. Work for Bruce Jenner...
East, the thoughts just fly out when I channel great leaders in our country's history and the ideas of the leading Republican nominees for President.
Leave it to brain dead liberals to interject with irrelevant information, which isn’t even accurately used.
Interracial marriage was legal in some colonies, or became legal within 70 years of our founding. Interracial marriage was never made illegal nationwide; congress never passed a federal law banning it. There have always been states that have allowed it even before the Supreme Court had a say in it. The definition of marriage remained the same before and after that ruling. No legal or ordinary dictionary ever changed their definition, or recognized marriage as being dependent on the race of the couple. 6 of the 13 original colonies never had any laws banning interracial marriage, and 4 colonies repealed their laws prior to 1887. FYI, there was no “black agenda” then, nor any politically correct media like today.
You’re twist on this issue is really absurd.
This bakery has no sign or policy restricting access to gays. Any gay person can walk in and buy their products. None will be refused entry or service. This bakery offers wedding cakes for traditional marriages.
ANY GAY PERSON CAN WALK IN AND BUY A CAKE FOR A TRADITIONAL MARRIAGE.
In fact, no customer is being treated differently.
ALL customers are offered the same product and choice.
Businesses have a right to consider requests to specially accommodate people for events, or to outright reject them. No body has a right to force someone else to associate with or participate in a cause or event against their will.
lol.. i believe you Josh Earnested the question, Mod.
i didn't hear any denial regarding the Newt toupée or the Joseph Abboud pinstripe special?
"just freaking be happy for people who are in love and want to be married"
Not what's happening. Their master is demanding blood as he is not getting any from abortions with the homosexual sodomy crowd.
A homosexual sodomite is a horrible slavemaster, ask any Christian in the wedding industry.
Moderate Republican: Attempting to equate gay rights to the quest for black civil rights is insulting. Unless, of course, you can prove that people are born gay or transgender. Is there some genetic marker or traceable genetic lineage that defines those behaviors? Is it possible that these are simply adapted or learned behaviors? We were “created equal”, but aberrant behavior is not part of that equal creation, is it? If that is true, then every form of aberrant behavior is equal, isn’t it? Wouldn’t pedophilia or coprophilia be just as equal? If there is a genetic marker, and being gay is a part of your creation, then that would clearly be different. I would support those rights as equal to anyone’s. But that has never been demonstrated; at least not yet. Do you support the right to “choose”? You do support abortion on demand rights, don’t you Moderate Republican? Then you’ll be supportive when pregnant women start having genetic testing of their fetus and aborting them if that gay gene is present, right? It is their body and their right to choose, isn’t it? There is a great deal of hypocrisy and inconsistency in your stated beliefs, isn’t there?
ModerateRepublican - You are a liar, no where in the bible does G0D condone slavery in any way or form, the only references to servitude are to repay debts of various natures, other than that no slavery is acceptable under the laws of G0D at all, and slavery is in fact punishable under G0D's laws, will you ever stop spreading your lying and made up B/S.
If these gay ,lesbian ,or whatever couples really wanted a cake made for them and this one bakery refused their request, don't act like a bunch of big overgrown babies that need a diaper change and do like other people do and go to another bakery. I'm sure there is more than just that one bakery in that town.
Moderate republican (i.e. Liberal), You just did the same thing again. You suggest you are going to present Biblical truth, then you quote a person that said something 1800 years after the New Testament was written.
"if you knew the Bible better you’d understand Jefferson Davis, the President of the Confederacy understood:"
If you want to present Biblical truth, quote the Bible.
Bicycle, yours was an interesting post. You explained to me what my "stated beliefs" are (which, oddly, I never stated), and then tell me I'm a hypocrite for the the beliefs I never said I held. Slick.
But if you read my post I was only quoting Jefferson Davis. You should have a seance and take your complaints directly to him.
God condoned slavery including buying and selling humans and violence against them many times in both the OT and NT. Makes me wonder what kind of new aged bible you're reading.
The Klein’s don’t have a Constitutional leg to stand on. Here’s why:
1) their business has a constitutional obligation to provide all citizens in their state equal treatment under Oregon laws. It’s straight from the Constitution.
2) they have not lost their personal religious freedoms, but once their business contracted with Oregon to provide service to the public it was instantly obligated to follow state laws to provide all citizens equal treatment under Oregon’s anti-discrimination laws It’s straight from the Constitution.
3) their business has no constitutional right to religious conscientious objection by denying a citizen their Constitutional rights. Their business won’t find that kind of religious protection in the Constitution.
4) the Klein’s weren’t sued because of their religious convictions. They were sued because they decided to shirk their constitutional obligations by skirting Oregon laws against discrimination and not treat ALL Oregon citizens equally under those laws. There was and is no religious persecution and it’s disingenuous to claim there is when they are the ones being lawless. The law and Constitution are on the government’s side, not the Klein’s.
dealer@678 - Good idea, also I stopped buying food products from Oregon when the news story about Oregon using Fetuses/babies as fuel for their hospitals, I thought they may be doing this practice of using fetuses/babies as fuel to heat their buildings that make food products there also, "Soylent Green" but worse fetuses/babies came to mind also.
Hello John 1776: You took the comment right out of my keyboard. An online video a few days ago featured a heterosexual man carrying a picture of his male friend. He went to bakeries in Dearborn, Michigan. The bakers would listen attentively, but when he asked whether the baker would bake him and his friend a cake decorated for a homosexual wedding, the baker would shake his/her head NO. Why don't the Lesbians visit these shops and start a lawsuit against the Muslim bakers? Could it be that the lezzies are fearful for their own safety? Do they only pick on Christians?
Michigan does not have anti-discrimination laws to protect it's citizens against unequal treatment, therefore Michigan has essentially told lesbians and any other citizen that they can not expect equal treatment from businesses in their state.
@ Mod Rep
Would you say lucifer knows the Bible better than anyone?
It's not about knowledge only, but your sincere heart and obedience to God's will. Having said that without Jesus sacrifice for my sins, repentance, God's grace and forgiveness there would be no hope for me.
There's a lot more to Christianity than quoting from the Bible.
May God's peace be with you and God bless you in your search for God's truth not man's often erroneous ideas and misuse of scripture.

Just when groups like the clan were almost in the dustbin of history, relegated to old drinking buddies talking about the “good old days”, the progressive left has picked an issue that will give them new blood and a “Remember the Alamo” type will to fight. Way to go Lefties, you’ve managed to find another divide to throw salt in the wound of. So lets see, we have;
Rich vs poor
conservative vs liberal
black vs white
Religious vs atheist
worker vs taker
gay vs straight
and now North against South!
Amazing! And I’m sure I forgot a few. Good going “divider in chief.”
I agree John.I believe in the Heritage not Hate but this will supply ammo for both the Panthers and the KKK.
 June 29, 2015 at 2:49pm
Truth is easy. If you flip a coin and it lands heads up, then it is true the coin landed heads up.
Progressives, however, would say that is NOT the truth because it discriminates against those who live in Asia, who if they could look through the earth would see that the tail of the coin was facing “up.”
You just made a strong argument for the side that believes truth is subjective - which it is except for truths (facts) relating to the physical world.
No Simple, truth is truth. It matters not that one can not see a color it matters only that the color is there. A red brick remains red even if the person looking at it can not perceive the color red. A cat remains a cat even though someone else calls it a feline.
'a cat remains a cat though some else calls it a feline'
Considering those are the same things...?
Ok so I'll quote Shakespear. " A rose by any other name would smell as sweet."
The words are different the meaning the same thus the truth remains the truth regardless of the word Blink

I see a danger greater than ISIS and Obama combined: Apathy.
Yes, there are many screaming their heads off about this or that, but the majority of people I see have totally unplugged. They can watch ISIS killing people off and then laugh at a funny cat video. It’s not sinking in. The economy, the killings, the death of our rights, the birth of tyranny, the lead up to WWIII, none of it… It’s not sinking in. And that is the biggest danger we face, a social death due to apathy.
Yep, it's scary. Our kids lives will be much darker and bleaker.
WWIII has been here since the WTC was bombed the first time in 1993. People just keep avoiding the facts. We were never in two wars in the middle east, we have been in a Global War on Terror and that was just two of the major theaters of operation.
All this other stuff is a 5th column denying it and driving us deeper into moral depravity to destroy us.
I could be wrong, but I don't think so.
Apathy and it's partner, willful ignorance-
The anti- gun or anti-flag or anti-anything else people can really get fired up and tirelessly pursue their agenda while abysmally ignorant of the facts, which are readily available...if they just took a few moments to find them...but that seems to be when apathy kicks in.
'Don't confuse me with the facts, my mind is made up and set in concrete'
I watch those funny cat videos to maintain my sanity after watching the other thank you very much. But seriously, your point is spot on that most people aren't preparing for what's coming or working to stop it. Society has become too used to comfort or daily routines. They aren't ready for what happens next, and that is why they will turn to anyone who is, even the devil himself. They are violently pushing back against anyone who tries to wake them up and their delusional dream will soon become a nightmare with no escape.

So, when Israel Gets nuked, and we get EMP’ed, Then can we try him for treason?
Doesn’t surprise me that I’m from the least patriotic state of New York.
And we can blame that on NYC! Which is a cancer to the rest of the state….
I’m as patriotic as they come. My great, great, great.. maybe one more great uncle was Stephan Hopkins, Governor of Rhode Island, one of the original signers of the Declaration of Independence of The United States of America.
We get rid of NYC and we’d be in the top 5 I’m sure….
And knows the definition of Patriotic
California didn't make the "least patriotic" because its practically part of Mexico again.
I bet every liberal says the Constitution is racist. You darn white people, did the Constitution.
The last 7 states don't seem to even make the list. I thought we had 57 total states.
I guess Obama's last seven states don't even make the list. I wonder why?
I guess Obama's last seven states don't even make the list. I wonder why?
This is a flawed poll. There is no way in hell that liberals are patriotic after you follow their guiding principles. The only way a blue state shows up high on this list is because of the Conservatives that live within it.
I see the propaganda ministry is still dedicated to dividing us into groups so we can fight and argue with each other instead of paying attention to what government is doing. How about a list of the most patriotic to the least patriotic elected officials. The sole criteria would be adherence to the constitution.
Instead of focusing on our petty differences in society why not concentrate on the difference between what the people want and what the government is doing? Isn't that suppose to be the job of the news media? Isn't that why the press has constitutional protection? Goebbels would be so proud.
No way Utah would be in the bottom 10 then. I can promise you that.
Maine is number 6 on the list for most patriotic and yet we where the first state to legalize same sex marriage by popular vote and Maine ranks as one of the least religious states. Only 20% of Maine residents go to church weekly.
Care to respond?
And a good follow-up would be: How many residents of a given state would like to secede from the union?
I don't buy t his survey for a single second. Half of the top 5 'Patriotic' states are blue states which have passed massive anti 2nd Amendment AND anti 1st Amendment state laws. Who in the heck decided the results of this survey? It definitely wasn't common citizens.
I'm from Pennsylvania and disappointed that we're on the top ten least patriotic states... Too bad. (My hound dog has an American Flag collar for Independence Day!)
