General / Re: Minorites, speak out!!

We're all ideological minorities, but those of us who are white can blend in easily, until we start to speak our minds.

Ian and Mark have said that New Hampshire people don't have a problem with black folks in general, but keep in mind that this is a state that is well under 1% black.  I would assume that one would get used to looking a bit different.  I've never been to NH, so I can't speak from any experience.

If more black folks realized how much the state has victimized them, more would be libertarians. Unfortunately too many see the state as benefiting them, and many white folks see the state as benefiting black people.  It's what the state does best, it harms people while making them think it is helping them.

That's because man/men is the gender neutral way to address the human species.

I always prefer writers who use the male pronouns in the gender neutral sense.  This is one of the things I liked about Harry Browne.  He always did this in his writing and speaking.

I don't like 'they' and 'their' as a gender neutral pronouns.  Female pronouns used in a gender neutral way annoy me to no end.  It's like the author / speaker is trying to force some PC garbage on me.

So how do we get the audio book form Kenneth?

How about Pando?  There are three links:

  • High Quality = 329.1 MB AAC 128 kbps
  • Medium Quality = 177.9 MB AAC 64 kbps
  • Low Quality = 89.4 MB AAC 32 kbps

They're all up.  BTW, these links will last something like a couple weeks after the last person downloads, so it's a good idea to spread them around publicly to make them more nearly perpetual.

What software do you use to make it into one audiobook file?  I have thought about doing this with some other audiobooks.  Mises.org has many that could be put into one file.  I would maybe do this for them if they would upload the single files I make to their site.

Violence against the state will only work when enough people are convinced it is justified.

General / Recording the government officials in New Hampshire
« on: August 17, 2008, 03:49:34 PM »
Considering that recording devices are currently our best weapons against the state, it is useful to know what the state thinks about recording.  New Hampshire is one of the most restrictive according to this page:  http://www.rcfp.org/taping/

I'm all for doing moral things that are against statute without getting busted.  But the idea behind recording is to expose them, so hidden recordings might have limited use.  I remember reading a story about a family that was in trouble with the police for having a CCTV system at their house when the Blue Light Gang showed up.

What about Anarchyinyourhead.com?  It seems like something he would do.  He recently put one of Walter Blocks jokes into a cartoon.

I'm about 15 years too old.

There's no such thing as too old.  One is never too old.  She, could be too young though.  How old is this girl?

Maybe I should try to get on board with one of the task forces around here. If you can't beat em, join em, right?

I've wondered how successful getting a state job and messing up their actions would be.  One wouldn't want to get caught.  Or at least appear to be a bumbling inept fool when messing up records and operations.

Go for it.

I have some and plan to continue.  In the past it has mostly been just posting personal info in comment section of news stories and blogs about these types of incidents.  It would be good to somehow make it easier for others.  There is the ratemycop site.

I was thinking of requesting a list of everyone that receives a paycheck from the city I am in using a freedom of information act request.  Does anybody have any advice on this?  I don't really want to get on a shit list with them.  Although clicking around on Google would be enough to find out plenty to make them mad about me.

All "anti-drug taskforces" need to be disbanded.

I like to see these newspaper polls have a majority taking the pro-freedom position.

General / Exposing government officials
« on: June 24, 2008, 01:20:22 PM »
I have thought for a long time whenever I hear some story about some state official abusing non-state people that we should make an effort to expose the identity of those doing the wrong.  We seem to always hear of the person who is shot or wrongly arrested, but who is doing the shooting and arresting?  If the name can be found, personal information can be linked to it and publicly posted.  The information is likely already publicly available from sites such as zaba or county assessor sites.

It isn't popularly seen as legitimate to use force to defend one's self against the violence of the blue light gang, but exposing as much as possible can be fairly easily done and maybe help them to know that little brother is watching.

On nwi.com, this is today's question.

Should Northwest Indiana's federal anti-drug task force be disbanded?

Go vote. The results are also printed in the opinion section of the paper version.

Ignore this thread after a few days.

rissy.jpg looks like your average FTL listener.  She's not a model nor is she deformed.  Just like all of us.  If I lived in Oregon I'd love to have her as my girlfriend.  Well... she's  a little too young, but why not.  There's nothing wrong with her.

Why is her car levitating at shoulder level?
no legs

Free Radio Forum / Re: Pirate Radio
« on: May 19, 2008, 06:02:58 PM »
Here's a wired.com wiki on setting up a pirate radio station.

Thanks for this.

Anybody that has success doing this, let us know here.  We can share tips.  I'm sure many of us would like to broadcast a lot of the same programming.

Some of the stuff I have been thinking of broadcasting:

* Michael Badnarik
Monday - Friday 7:00 am - 9:00 am CT

* Scott Horton
Monday - Friday 11:00 am-1:00 pm CT

* Marc Stevens
Saturdays 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm CT

* Free Talk Live
Monday - Saturday 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm CT

Other suggestions?  I know of some, but I would like to listen to more of their programs.

BTW, there is a station that broadcasts FTL in Michigan City, Indiana, but it is too far east for me to pick up here.  I can faintly hear it in Gary though.

And I have heard that it is more of an offense to broadcast commercials on an unlicensed station.  I can't sit and edit commercials.  This won't be a money maker.  I would have to just let it go.  Do any of you know anything about this?
