[Paul] was among the 15 who did not cast a vote. Thanks, Ron.
You know, he did put out a lengthy statement Monday slamming this Act and calling a lot of negative attention to it.
Actions speak louder than words.
The voting day was pushed up by 1 at the very last minute (along with some additional, much worse changes). Ron Paul was in Texas campaigning at the time. I could hardly fault him for not being able to fly across the country to vote at the last minute. Knowing RP, I bet it was logistically impossible for him to get from Tx to Ma in time to vote with the time he was given.
By not voting, the estimable Ron Paul did as much as most people posting about it here on
They pushed the voting day up by one at the last minute. Ron Paul was campaigning in Texas at the time, it was probably logistically impossible for him to get back in time to vote.
Here is a good quote on the subject:
"The state must declare the child to be the most precious treasure of the people. As long as the government is perceived as working for the benefit of the children, the people will happily endure almost any curtailment of liberty and almost any deprivation."
--Mein kampf, Adolf Hitler.
That quote does not appear anywhere in Mein Kampf. It was made up, probably by some random guy on the internet.
If neutrinos were faster than c, the neutrinos from SN1987A would have arrived "five years sooner," while they were measured arriving "3 hours before the dying star's light caught up" as expected...
You are making the assumption that the neutrinos from SN1987A were excited to the same or higher energy level by the supernova that the LHC neutrinos were excited to. My bet is this assumption is false.
The trouble with doing something right the first time is that nobody appreciates how difficult it was.
