Why do we bother with time zones as well? Why can't we all just use UTC? If you ever need to know what the local "time" is in some other part of the world, you are most certainly using a device which is more than capable of informing you whether or not it is appropriate to be communicating in real time. And that device is also probably automatically synchronized so it knows what the correct time is.

I saw myself in it three times, once as an activist (wearing a tricorne hat), once as an entrepreneur (showing off +Shire Silver  cards), and once as a father (carrying my son at +Porcfest - the Porcupine Freedom Festival ).

Its an hour long but really well done. Some of the best quality video coming out of the Free State. 101 Reasons: Liberty Lives in New Hampshire (Full Length Film)

I'd love to see this exceed the goal.
 
We love people who show that government is not needed, and one of our favorites is Shire Sharing. They are putting together this year's Thanksgiving drive and could use your help.

You can donate funds at http://www.youcaring.com/nonprofits/shire-sharing-thanksgiving-2014/244117 and you can be sure that any excess donations will be used wisely.

And if you are in New Hampshire (or will be then) you can join in the fun of delivering the meals. The delivery event is being organised on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/events/281322678732914
It's that time of year! This will be our 4th Annual Shire Sharing event! This is a voluntary, privately-funded effort to provide complete Thanksgiving dinners to NH families in need.

I found a wild bee swarm yesterday. This morning we enslaved them for our own nefarious purposes.

But y'all should already know all this :-)
For anyone who values liberty, it can easily seem like a lost world. Between a ballooning federal debt, massive tax and regulatory burden, and an increasingly violent and pervasive police state, hope for a free and peaceful world is hard to come by. Hard, but not impossible.

what don't we get rid of the compliancy and lack of any integrity in health and human services like unregistered sexy offenders protected by judges police schools before the protect a mom and child with a handicap or illness made worse bry the uninspected  code violations the housing authorities allows or the state area  agencies that employ sick sadist murders that do gruesome murders then are protected by unethical judges attorneys  and  keep secrets like being related to the landlord you been paying for 3 years is a unregistered sex pedophile abusing women and children protected by police and judges even schools in stead of children with special needs and their moms that love them . the people are sick and need to be stopped. I cant believe KEENE NH twisted perverted sadistic exploiters of  medically fragile Women and children in housing  services  schools and in the police departments

Bitcoin is a libertarian solution, not the solution. +Shire Silver is also a solution, and it complements bitcoin well.

The garbage we get from a local restaurant to use as compost is really good stuff. The onions I pulled out of it and planted are growing very well, and today we pulled out some celery that had already started growing again and planted that. [We are keeping them separate from the rest of the garden, just to be safe and sure.]

Florida a pro-gun state? For real? I know a handful of pro-liberty folks that left Florida for New Hampshire because it is way freer here.

In Florida can you open carry in your state house? Because we can and DO here. I've been to Senate hearings where I can clearly see at least 50 guns being worn by the citizens that were there to set the Senate straight. Citizens can open carry everywhere except federal government buildings (although I have open carried in several post offices) and the primary voting chambers of the legislature.

In Florida what do you have to do to build a range? When I wanted to build a range on my property, I just did it. I didn't ask anyone for permission or even rules. I just started building it (across a small pond from the town school no less). We did have a cop show up once - he walked around the house and said "Hi. We got a report of gunfire being heard at the school and are just checking. Carry on." and then he left. About a year later we got a visit from a local who was a trauma nurse and hates the sound of gunfire. She had gone to the cops, the town council, the local legislators; and they all told her there was nothing they could do. She was scared but nice and we worked out a voluntary agreement. That's New Hampshire, even before seeing any effects from the Free State Project - which is increasing the freedom here.

Sure, most of the northeastern states are bad and getting worse. But not New Hampshire - we're getting better. The Free State Project is a long term effort, but it is succeeding and I ask all liberty activists to check it out.

Just trying to improve the world by changing the money the world uses
Introduction
I got totally ripped off by the government education system, and am only now learning basic entrepreneurial skills that everyone should know by the time they are in their teens. I have started a few businesses, hired and fired, and am hopeful that I will do well in some venture. My current focus is Shire Silver, providing precious metals in everyday trade sized amounts embedded in a convenient card.

Life is wonderful, even the hard parts. Life wouldn't be worth a damn if there weren't challenges. Like Army basic training - that was very challenging, but I'm so very glad I made it.

Here are a list of interests that I have that may help you decide what circles to add me to. If you let me know what you're specifically interested in, I can better place you in my circles - and thus avoid bludgeoning you with stuff you don't care about.
  1. Freedom (libertarian/anarchy/Ron Paul)
  2. Money & Precious Metals
  3. Personal Stuff
  4. Food/Health
  5. Business/Marketing
  6. Manchester NH
  7. Grafton NH
  8. Atheism/Religion
