We have a definite timeline. The plan is to wait until we have 5,000 members before voting on which state; we had to have those 5,000 signatures no later than 3 years from the start of the project. That's September of 2004, and we currently anticipate reach 5,000 by September of 2003. Once the state has been chosen, we will wait until we have 20,000 members before initiating the move; if we don't have 20,000 signatures in 5 years (that's September of 2006), we close up shop. Finally, members have 5 years from the time the 20,000 mark is reached to move. The reason for these deadlines is so this won't turn into an unattainable pipedream endlessly sucking away the time and resources of our members.

I guess the FSP decided to become "an unattainable pipedream endlessly sucking away the time and resources of our members."


Hahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha, that is tooooo funny!

This is not.... http://uk.reuters.com/article/usTopNews/idUKTRE53G0P820090417

Just read that and think about it.  This is why I don't want to be associated with the FSP if this CD stuff keeps up.

The biggest problem with the CD that's going on is they are breaking the law for the sake of breaking laws.  Why?  What good is this going to do?  This is my biggest problem with activists..  

I'm not sure how many times it's been said, or has to be said, Monday was not about "breaking laws for the sake of breaking laws."
That is weird, cus I heard Ian say on FTL that Sam knew he was going to get arrested before the event took place.
Exactly what I heard.

Goddammit, it seems like every interaction I have with a holier than thou free stater makes me more anti FSP. Used to be that I WAS an FSPer, and then I decided to be a non-FSPer, and you self righteous pricks are turning me into an anti-FSP person with your high horse, arrogant comments.

You are not the center of the freedom movement. You are a part of it. You are not in the only place that matters. You will not win other liberty lovers over to your cause by calling them names for not joining your little collective.

Collectivism sucks, and it seems like the most vocal proponents of the FSP are turning into a bunch of collectivists. Good fucking luck.
Completely agree, and all the hype about this on FTL is starting to wear thin on me.  I signed up a few months ago for the FSP because I liked the idea.  But I'm now not sure I want to be associated with this group.  I understand not EVERYONE who is in the FSP is practicing CD, but CD is giving the FSP a bad name.

Here's my idea of what I thought the FSP was:
I save up some money to pay off some debts while looking for a job in NH to replace my current job in NY.  Meanwhile also scouting out places to rent or buy.  I planned on moving in 2 years or so.  My thought was that I was making myself more free by moving to a state that valued personal freedoms.  I didn't have any intentions of breaking laws for the purpose of breaking laws.  I wanted to go there to be away from the chains of NY state.  Find a decent paying job, meet people that have the same ideals as me, and maybe do some activism.

With all these CD'ers running around trying to intentionally rile up the sleeping giant, I'm not so sure I want to be a part of that.  If you poke a sleeping bear with a stick one time too many, you will eventually get your ass kicked, miss part of your face, be paralyzed, or maybe killed.  I see CD as not providing information that I legally don't have to provide if asked by a cop.  I don't see CD as breaking laws hoping that the giant will rethink it's decisions.

It doesn't matter that it's non-violent.  It's intentionally pissing people off and interfering in their lives without being provoked.

In all honesty, if this stuff keeps up, I may end up canceling my AMP subscription.  I could be completely wrong about all this and maybe what Sam and the other CD'ers are doing might make a difference.  I'll hold my decision for a few more weeks.  You guys are attracting the wrong group of people who just want to start stuff because they think it's wrong and not realizing that you're probably doing more harm than good, and probably endangering the freedom of those around you more than helping it.

Getting arrested for the sake of getting arrested is a publicity stunt, plain and simple.  I liken this type of CD that's going on in Keene right now to be similar to all the teabagging parties that went on yesterday.  1000's of fucktards standing with a sign saying "Fuck taxes", when they file their taxes every year early.  If all the 1000's of those people didn't file their taxes this year instead of throwing a party it would have made a much bigger statement.

The biggest problem with the CD that's going on is they are breaking the law for the sake of breaking laws.  Why?  What good is this going to do?  This is my biggest problem with activists..

LRN.FM - The Liberty Radio Network / Suggestion for a show on LRN
« on: April 12, 2009, 12:51:10 AM »
I'm not sure if you're open to suggestions for shows on LRN, but one that I think you might want to consider putting on is No Agenda. http://noagenda.mevio.com/
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/No_Agenda

This is Adam Curry and John C. Dvorak's twice a week, soon to be three times a week show covering everything going on in the world.  Think Alex Jones, but less ranting and raving, and a little more common sense.  They approach it almost like a comedy at times.  For those of you that are too young too remember, Adam Curry was one of the first VJ's on MTV, back when MTV actually played music videos.  And John C. Dvorak is a tech guy with a crapload of podcasts under his belt besides No Agenda.

keep up the awesome work! Enjoying LRN :)

So, I got inspired, thanks to this thread in the forum and my sick of being fat.  I joined Gold's Gym.  Not the way I'd like to workout, but it's the closest thing to having all the equipment at home lol.

I also signed up for an online service called FitSync.  They have an app for my Android phone that was $2.00 and it gives you access to all the workouts that you enter on their website.  Website access is free, so this is pretty good motivation for me.  http://app.fitsync.com/forum/index.php?action=profile;u=789

I get out of work in the morning, drive to Gold's that's on my way home, do my workout with my mp3's blastin in my ears from my Android and I'm good to go.  I hate the crowds at gyms, but this one seems to be ok.  Not too crowded, just a bunch of seniors.

I just completed my first whole week back lifting and I love it again.  Cardio is a different story lol.  Next thing I need to do is work on quitting smoking.  I've already pretty much eliminated soda out of my diet.  Got myself a nice BPA-Free waterbottle at Target that I carry around religiously so far lol.

The Polling Pit / Re: What OS (operating system) are you using
« on: April 12, 2009, 12:15:31 AM »
Desktop is running Ubuntu 8.10, Laptop is running Crunchbang Linux (openbox version of Ubuntu), and I finally got my parents to switch to Linux and installed Linux Mint 6.  Honestly, if you think Linux is just for geeks now, try Linux Mint.  It's based off of Ubuntu, but everything is automatically setup.  Flash, java, dvd playback, mp3 playback,etc.  Only thing I had to do was enable the Nvidia driver and reboot.  20 min install and setup.  The backup of all their crap took 3 hours, but on all 3 of my computers Ubuntu has installed in 20 mins or less.

Actually....I know everyone says that 3500 = 1 lb of body fat, but when you lose weight it's not all bodyfat.  You can't control whether you lose bodyfat or muscle weight.  Obviously lifting weights will help to build muscle.  The same is true for gaining weight.  It's not all body fat if you're lifting weights.  Obviously, if you're doing no exercise at all it is fat. 

Also, muscle is far more denser than fat.  Which can explain why the BMI index is utter bullshit.  It's much better to measure body fat % than BMI.

I think supplements like vitamins/fiber/glucosamine are ok.  I think supplements in general are ok if you are missing something in your diet, and meal replacements are ok too.  I used to be big on protein shakes and creatine, I think that was a waste of money really.  Fish oil maybe.

My biggest problem is that pretty much anything you eat today is unhealthy unless you grow it or kill it yourself.  I think it's not so much what you eat as it is how much you eat of it.  Making smart decisions on calories is the best way to lose weight IMHO.

I was obsessed with bodybuilding 5 or 6 years ago.  I loved it.  I got suckered in by the mags like FLEX and shit and became insanely obsessed with supplements.

Long story short I haven't worked out in about 3 years and am showing signs of working in a cube for 2 1/2 years.  Been looking at local gyms and not impressed.  I got the Wii Fit, which is amazing for cardio, but it's gotten old quick.  I need to lift again, I still have that desire.  I don't have the desire to be obsessed like I was originally with experimenting with supps.  I don't want to be insanely huge.  I just want to get down around 200lbs from 240 and have a smaller gut.

Cutting out the soda, having a harder time with fried foods.  Going to start eating more fiber and drinking more water.  Taking it slow for now.

The Polling Pit / Re: How much TV do you watch in a day?
« on: December 15, 2008, 02:44:51 AM »
I stopped watching the "idiot box" three years ago. Its amazing how ridiculus tv becomes even after three months of not watching it. Think about this, you sit in front of a screen full of people being paid to pretend to have a life instead of going out and enjoying your own.

I believe that's called "acting."  And yes, it's terrible. Films, plays, puppet shows, various forms of dance, story-telling.....all worthless!

I hardly consider a majority of what is out there on tv and in movies to be acting by any stretch of imagination.  40's,50's and 60's movies, that's acting.
