In January 2011, the advocacy group Utah Sound Money released a 30-second ad designed to stir up support for a new bill in the state legislature. “The almighty dollar’s not looking so almighty these days,” the announcer intones as storm clouds fill the screen. “The feds have us tap-dancing at the edge of financial ruin.” A small map of the U.S. totters along a rising red graph of debt. Suddenly, blue skies open as a giant gold coin floats down, using the Constitution as a parachute. “Restoring an inflation-proof, sound-money option offers a time-tested option,” the announcer concludes over the laughter of children at play. Viewers are then urged to support the Utah Sound Money Act.

Sponsored by Representative Brad Galvez, a Republican, the bill would make gold and silver coins from the U.S. Mint legal tender in the state. Although no businesses or individuals are compelled to use them, Galvez’s bill requires the state to accept the coins for tax payments or any government fees. Galvez says he was motivated by a fear that the nation’s mounting debt could lead to a loss of faith in the dollar, resulting in hyperinflation and possibly a currency collapse. He wanted to protect Utah, he says, from this calamity by creating an alternative to “fiat” currency, under which the dollar is backed by the “faith and credit” of the U.S.—not, as it once was, by gold reserves.

The Utah measure might sound like one of the many thousands of fringe bills that get filed in state legislatures and then are never heard of again—except occasionally as a punch line on late-night TV. But Galvez’s bill became law last year. Now he’s working on new proposals to make silver and gold easier to use. While Utah is the first state to pass such a law, others are trying. In the 2011–2012 legislative cycle, bills were introduced in 17 states to either recognize gold and silver coins or study the options for alternative currencies.

Barack Obama - Either Doing His Best In One of The Most Difficult Times In American History, Or Hitler

Barack Obama, the first black president, proved to millions this year that he is either trying his best to lead the nation during the worst economic crisis since the Great Depression, or he is the modern-day incarnation of Adolph Hitler pushing his Socialistic agenda. One of the two.

In 2010, Barack Obama made a number of political compromises while still trying to pursue many of the reforms laid out during his 2008 campaign. Also, he was a totalitarian monster comparable to the perpetrator of one of the worst genocides in history.

Barack is either a president who passed a comprehensive health care measure despite staunch opposition from powerful private interests, or a radical-Islamist sympathizer bent on systematically dismantling American democracy and eradicating all human liberty. (he successfully socialized healthcare against the will of the people)

Barack either assisted all Americans by lowering taxes while failing to communicate that effectively, or he is pure evil destroying our government from the inside out with insurmountable debt.
Barack Obama, IS TWO of the most important people of 2010: the one who was elected to be president of the United States and execute laws to the best of his ability, and the one who murders senior citizens (government healthcare) murders babies (abortion) and hates all white people (his own book). Only history will say which he is for sure.

Compare the size of surrounding heads in the "Situation Room" photo to the size of Obama's head. Even if you use a perspective argument -- in which objects appear smaller at a greater distance -- then why are the faces behind Obama still larger? Marshall Webb's head is larger as well, and keep in mind that Marshall is sitting next to Obama (on the same plane).

The errant Obama biography in the Acton & Dystel booklet does not contradict the authenticity of Obama's birth certificate. Moreover, several contemporaneous accounts of Obama’s background describe Obama as having been born in Hawaii.

The biography does, however, fit a pattern in which Obama--or the people representing and supporting him--manipulate his public persona.

"I think it's only recently that there have been outspoken voices, particularly on blogs, saying, 'Shut up Jesse Jackson, we're tired of you,'" she said.

Uhhhhhhhhhhhhh . . .

Dan Riehl, a conservative blogger who runs Riehl World View and contributes to Breitbart News, said that black-on-white violence isn't as predominant as other criminal-victim dynamics, but he still argued the news media have a special incentive to over-report stories of white criminals.

Uhhhhhhhhhhhhh . . .

These people really do live in fucking fantasyland. You simply cannot have a conversation with people starting from premises as fundamentally mistaken as these are.

uh i don't even know what to link to, but there is some kind of bizarre legal blog war going on between a bunch of online liberals i've never heard of and conservatives. the key guy is "the speedway bomber" turned some kind of activist, Brett Kimberlin

apparently it started with somebody faking a 911 call about a shooting and getting the SWAT team called to a conservative blogger's home

the whole thing is really fucked up.

managed to convince a technologically illiterate judge that this was incitement...

Huh? I would imagine that whatever technological form is used to publish an incitement, it is still recognizable as incitement because of what it says. Now, if the judge had been just plain illiterate, maybe it would have some bearing.

I'm trying to understand why crazy cousin larry went to jail, but right now I have only incoherant stories from crazy cousin larry’s family about how the government is conspiring with the lowdown sonofabitch across the way who done kilt their dog. As far as I can figure, crazy cousin larry was arrested for minding his own business because the cops and the whole town are against crazy cousin larry's family for no other reason than that they are right with the lord.

I'm not defending the lowdown sonofabitch across the way who done kilt their dog. He's crazier than cousin larry! It looks like he's been harassing crazy cousin larry's family with frivolous lawsuits and calls to 911.

Larry's only been in jail for two days, so it's probably too soon to call it a sign of end days. I suspect it will be sorted out. I keep telling crazy cousin Larry's family to work with the authorities and to quit pamphleting the neighborhood and digging through the lowdown-sonofabitch-across-the-way-who-done-kilt-their-dog's garbage, but I just saw crazy cousin larry's ma on the roof with some binoculars and a police scanner.
