Ron Paul’s Money Bomb Machine is up and running again…

Here is Ron Paul’s latest message to his supporters:

I’m running for President because it’s time to take a stand.

For principle over power.

For conviction over compromise.

For responsibility over recklessness.

For the American people over all those who would defend the status quo while selling out our children and grandchildren’s futures.

Beginning at midnight tonight, my campaign’s grassroots supporters will hold another Money Bomb to help guarantee I can continue building a top-tier campaign and pull out all the stops to finish strong in the Iowa Straw Poll on August 13.

So I hope you will visit http://www.RonPaul2012.com this Tuesday, July 19, and give whatever you are able to at this crucial time.

I can’t express enough how much I appreciate your support in this rough economy. I know many who contribute to my campaign are sacrificing in other areas so they can help spread the message of freedom and take back their country.

And there has never been a better chance for us to win!

The Iowa Straw Poll is coming up fast, and all eyes will be on the results.

This is our opportunity to further illustrate that our R3VOLUTION is able to turn passion into on-the-ground success.

You and I have seen it in our continuing efforts to Audit the Fed, as we have brought more scrutiny on the Federal Reserve than ever before and forced it into releasing tremendous amounts of information it would have loved to keep sealed in a dusty backroom.

Believe me, the Fed knows that’s just the beginning of what we can accomplish.

And you and I have seen the power of our movement most dramatically with my son Rand’s victory in the Kentucky Senate race, where, despite the establishment’s best efforts, Rand crushed the opposition and has gone on to shake up Washington.

So I firmly believe there is no limit to what this battle-tested movement can achieve when it comes together around a common goal.

The Tuesday, July 19, Money Bomb isn’t about revolutionizing campaign fundraising.

We’ve already done that.

It’s about demonstrating the intensity of the support for restoring America now.

It’s about proving that the torch of liberty is burning bright in the hearts of patriots all across the country.

It’s about sending a message that we will no longer let the establishment decide who is worthy of support.

If you are able, I hope you will chip in whatever you can at http://www.RonPaul2012.com on Tuesday.

There are many more Americans who are ready to support me for President in this election. But it’s hard for them to see through the establishment’s tired story that I can’t win because I refuse to play by the statists’ rules.

A strong finish in the Iowa Straw Poll would go a long way toward finally doing away with this myth once and for all and convincing more Americans to join our efforts.

I’m proud of my record as a constitutional conservative, and I know that no other candidate for the Presidency has the credentials to match.

But if we are to win, we must get the word out far and wide.

Anything you can contribute at http://www.RonPaul2012.com on Tuesday will help me purchase tv and radio ad time, send mail, create more campaign materials, and fund my operations in several key states.

And, most importantly, it will help me in Iowa in these last few weeks before the August 13 Straw Poll.

If we work together, I am convinced we can WIN this race and take the White House in November 2012.

Thank you for all you do for freedom, and I hope you can help my campaign send another powerful message by contributing at http://www.RonPaul2012.com this Tuesday, July 19.

For Liberty,

Ron Paul

P.S. The August 13 Iowa Straw Poll is coming up fast, and my campaign’s grassroots supporters are holding another Money Bomb starting at midnight tonight to help me finish strong in the Straw Poll and continue my campaign’s momentum.

So please visit http://www.RonPaul2012.com this Tuesday. Any amount you can give will go toward growing this campaign and winning the Presidency in 2012.

This should be a fun one to watch.  Anyone think his supporters can pull enough support this time to get some real attention?

How can the President stop drilling? Easy!

A New Orleans federal judge lifted the six-month moratorium on deepwater drilling imposed by President Barack Obama following the largest oil spill in U.S. history.

Let me say that again: A judge in New Orleans decided that the President can’t tell a company to stop drilling in our Economic Exclusion Zone (200 nm from our coast) even though the judge has no jurisdiction there either.

However, the President can order the execution of American citizens overseas at will. Overseas is anywhere beyond 12 nautical miles of the coast.

Easy fix: President should order the execution of all drillers who are operating in the Gulf of Mexico. Easy Peasy! They can legally drill all they want to but we can’t promise their survival when the Predators are flying.

The next generation of music marketing

Filed under: Life,Money,Music — iknowkeith @ 10:18 am

Gone are the days of bands and solo artists needing to “get signed” by a major record label.  The internet and websites like Reverbnation.com are allowing artist to direct market and promote their talents directly to fans and grow their own fan base without a signed contract.  Although there is not CD in Wal-Mart to brag about, it is a good alternative to signing with a traditional label.

Reverbnation has its own charts that artists can climb based on web traffic, song plays, widgets, and unique listeners.  These provide inputs for a ranking method that places artists on the chart as well as determines how much Reverbnation pays their artists.

Many artist on Reverbnation have joined together to “cross-promote” one another by forming their own online music labels.  This allows them to play each others songs, climb the charts and then gain more exposure.

The artist known as “Grout” is one such example.  Having joined 14 different online labels as well as started one himself, Grout has propelled himself to the top 150 pop artists in the world (on Reverbnation) and is currently #2 in San Diego, CA.  Not bad for a musician that has never released an album and has never done a  live show.

Will musicians like Grout ever be signed to a traditional label? Unlikely.  But with the growing number of artists that are bypassing the old business model and getting their music out there with the web, it is a new ball-game and the old corporate structures will have to change with the times.

What does the passage of the Health Care Reform Bill mean for Israel?

Filed under: Israel,Our World,politics — iknowkeith @ 2:29 pm
Tags: , , , ,

On the surface…  Nothing.  But look a little deeper and Israel could be scrambling.  Here’s why…

Status quo for US-Israel relations has not changed for a long time.  US says, “let’s have peace in the Middle East”.  Israel say, “sure.”  US says, “stop expanding settlements and treating Palestinians like animals.  Israel say, “Bite me!”

Although this may be a  simplification of the issues, it does paint the picture of our relationship.  US has continually supported Israel both in rhetoric and financially since Israel’s inception.  This support has come at a great cost to US relations with the rest of the Middle East but it has been unwavering.

Health care reform has also been status quo for a very long time.  President Obama just shook that up.  He demonstrated his ability to change the status quo.  He flexed his political muscle and made change.

Whether you agree with the new bill, you have to recognize that President Obama has made a change in our country.

Israel now has to deal with a man who can change the status quo.  Israel has to worry that President Obama may turn on them and he has the political power to change policy. This is dangerous territory for Israel after years of not playing nice in the sand box.

The Speed of a Sniffing Dog

Filed under: Our World,politics — iknowkeith @ 12:01 am

Andrew Johnson writing  for the Independent stated that:

“Taliban fighters have developed a deadly new generation of their most lethal weapon, the improvised explosive device, or IED, which is almost undetectable because it has no metal or electronic parts.”

and…

“Earlier in the war, IEDs would be mostly triggered by two hack-saw blades separated using a spacer. When the blades were stepped on or driven over they would complete an electronic circuit which so detonated the explosive – often an artillery shell…

metal saw blades have now also been replaced with graphite blades and the artillery shells with ammonium nitrate. The damage is caused by the power of the blast rather than metal fragments, or shrapnel.”

In case you were not sure… this is bad.  Without metal or electronics, the only way to detect that type of bomb (before detonation… after is easy) is with dogs.

“One brigade commander posted to Afghanistan said that sniffer dogs were the most reliable way of detecting IEDs, but this method took a long time and required a lot of animals. Already convoys have to move at very
slow speeds while roads ahead are checked for explosives. “

All our modern military transportation technology has been reduced to the speed of a sniffing dog by a pile of wood and fertilizer?   Wow.

This is the pain that is  guerrilla warfare…  and a great illustration of how low-tech insurgencies can throw sand in the gears of high-tech conventional forces.  This kind of war is not what our forces are optimized to fight.  I am not suggesting we completely retool our military to be optimized against Taliban and the Wooden Bomb Brigade because that would leave use vulnerable to other modern military forces and that is not cool.  But I think we will have to acknowledge that this is going to be messy and no fun and if we are going to keep slogging it out with these guys then we are going to have some losses.  You can “out tech” a low technology but modern army (i.e. Iraq in 1991), but that doesn’t work if the enemy plays by different rules all together and goes for “no tech”.

One criticism… in the beginning of the article he called these IED’s a “new generation” weapon.  I have a problem with that.   Typically, when talking about new generations of weapons and styles of warfare, it refers to a technological advance that must be matched or surpassed to be defeated.  (cannons over catapults, guns over swords and bows, maneuver warfare over trench warfare, etc).  This is not a “new generation” weapon any more than insurgency/guerrilla tactics are a “new generation” of warfare.  Traps, tricks, underhanded terror tactics (assassination, bombs, etc) have been around for centuries.  These are not new.   They are just becoming more difficult to fight against because we hate to admit that they are still effective against all our expensive toys.

Really? Was it Really Attempted Use of a WMD?

Filed under: politics,Ramblings,Wordpress Political Blogs — iknowkeith @ 11:36 pm
Tags: , ,

Yesterday on NPR, I heard the discussion about the would-be Christmas airline bomber as having attempted to use a weapon of mass destruction.

Really?  Should we really be calling the Christmas airline bomber an attempted use of Weapon of Mass Destruction? He burning his lap!  Seriously?

If we use that term to describe the attempted downing of an aircraft then isn’t every anti-ship cruise missile a WMD?  There can be hundreds to thousands of people on ships.  Or what about a 2000 lbs bomb that we drop all the time?  How about a grenade?  If he stabbed the pilots and brought the plane down would that be a WMD?  Will will have to have an international armistice treaty on box cutters!

I think a more honest term would “attempted mass murder.”  How about we save WMD for the big stuff like nukes and not water down our own language.

Only in Thailand

On a recent trip to Phuket, Thailand…

Baby on motorbike

This is a very common scene. I even saw a man driving a scooter in traffic with a woman and two small children (one on each leg) sitting side saddle. But if you are thinking they are not concerned about safety… think again. Check out this safety warning on a Patong Beach street corner…
Drunk Crossing
See? Thailand cares about safety.

Here is another example of good motoring sense…
