WHAT’S RUSTLING MY JIMMIES

I am sick to death of libertarians, or probably more accurately, supposed libertarians, who somehow think we should hide who we are, essentially lying about our stances, and then, at some undefined, opportune time, we spring the truth on people about what libertarianism truly is. Sadly, I hear this sort of tactic mostly from people who can’t define libertarianism in any literate manner to begin with, which makes it even sadder.

 

 

WHAT’S IN THE NEWS 

In the age of consent news, a 27-year-old Cleveland man faces between 15 and 30 years in prison for allegedly producing child pornography. But no children were harmed by his actions: The man merely took consensual, sexually suggestive pictures of his 17-year-old girlfriend when he was 20.

 In some good or bad cops news, Des Moines, Iowa, police received hundreds of fireworks-related complaints, but authorities didn’t issue a single citation.

In some Libertarian Party news, the LP held it’s biennial convention last week and, as is to be expected, some good and some bad come from it. 

An interesting tidbit to come out of the convention is that Arvin Vorha lost his bid to be reelected as Vice-Chair for the LP.  

And, finally, post-convention, my good friend Tom Knapp created a new site, whoisbillweld.com. It will be, I hope, an ever-expanding expose on Bill Weld, his anti-libertarian, and anti-freedom positions, and why he should not be president.  

 

ASK ME ANYTHING
