This video is quite remarkable for the sheer force and conviction of the speaker's indictment of Gordon Brown's failure to save the British economy. I predict Daniel Hannan, Member of the European Parliament, will be the man to watch in Europe during the upcoming months.
That being said, watching speeches as I have of late, it would seem to me that Barack Obama was elected on the basis of his sonorous voice (on top of the layers of nice sounding BS he delivered in his speeches), whereas Ron Paul, who had oodles of real content in his speeches, was ignored on the basis of his voice, which can be squeaky when he feels passionately about an issue. Has anyone else noticed this? Regarding Daniel Hannan's voice, this European politician's delivery is crisp, clean, and delivered with impeccable diction.
Is that really it? Do we elect presidents on the basis of their voices?
But I digress. Here's the video.

While I have not seen this documentary (yet), it seems to back up my continued statement about the Western White population. We have not been wise to devalue marriage and children as we have. If the tide does not turn, we will disappear from the earth.

To promote appreciation of our European cultural heritage. A song about Richard the Lionhearted of England, accompanied by slides from the Codex Manasse and the Song of Roland. Sorry, it's not in English...but lovely all the same.

The sponsor of this so-called "food safety bill" is married to a man employed by Monsanto. The language of the bill is general enough that it could apply to your local organic farmer or your own backyard garden. If the new government department it creates deems your produce unsafe, you could face up to a $1,000,000 fine.
Of course, all things done by government are more efficient and just plain better than things done by private individuals. Wink, wink, nudge, nudge.
H.R. 875: 111st Congress

Oh, and buy some heirloom seeds while yet you can...
