Kids being tortured in government indoctrination centers is rustling my jimmies this episode. What’s in the News with stories on cannabis DUIs, Bitcoin regulation in New Hampshire, and government inefficiency. This episode is brought to you by Swarm City, a decentralized commerce meta-platform that allows people to participate in commerce without interference from a third party. Also brought to you by Wry Guys t-shirts, the makers of all of the Pax Libertas Productions t-shirts, including for this show. A wry wit for today’s shit.

WHAT’S RUSTLING MY JIMMIES

There are few things that rustle my jimmies more than people who harm kids, so when listener and supporter of the show, Link, sent me this article, I knew I had to talk about it, even though the article is three years old. The article is titled, “Violent and Legal: The Shocking Ways School Kids are Being Pinned Down, Isolated Against Thier Will” and it was published in June of 2014. It tells horrific stories of children being abused in school to a degree I never knew happened. I highly recommend everyone read this article.

I want my picture taken with you, as many of you as I can!

In speaking of Swarm City news, I had the honor of attending the launch party for Swarm City’s phase two product called Boardwalk last week. And this week, at PorcFest, I will have the ability to actually test out the product by seeking rides from the Swarm City golf cart around the campgrounds using the hashtag “needaride.” You can check out the full video from the live stream of the launch event.

In New Hampshire news, New Hampshire’s governor Chris Sununu signed a bill, HB 436, which makes NH the first state to explicitly protect cryptocurrency like Bitcoin from regulation.
