I heard Austin Peterses debate Friday night, I was an instant fan.  I still expected Gary Johnson to come up as my top choice on this test, but he's a ways down the list - in fact tied with Trump on the full website (no - I'm not making implications).  In fact with the exception of Perry I heard everyone on this list Friday night.  Feldman is an interesting individual, I like his ideas, but I would have a hard time supporting him.  I think he would do well within the party, but there's no way he would do well on a national stage, the F-bombs gave him a bunch of fans, but those of us that think in whole picture terms understood the problem.  I have to say the same about McAfee, he had some interesting stories, and I would like to hear more (I've got one of his books I stll need to read), but I think the very things that make him an awesome Libertarian party member handicap him on the national stage.  (his arrest stories were great)

I'm making an appeal to #Kingwood area voters, if you're not local feel free to skip this appeal. Your district 127 is up for voting this election cycle, there is no Democrat running so I'm especially talking to Democrats here, but I want to make an appeal to Republicans also.

For the Democrats: The currently sitting representative of District 127 is Dan Huberty. This man is a special kind of bad when it comes to being representative. He shows up to the capital drunk to vote, has taken swings at reporters - while drunk, and has tried to repeal first amendment protections. He's tried to make it illegal to film representatives without their permission, due mostly to drunken escapades.

For the Republicans: He's personally responsible for the campus carry bill getting gutted to it's current form and has held up constitutional carry. He's a Neo Con who's in with the corrupt core of the party. The NRA does back him due to financial transactions guaranteeing their support, but he's not the Texas style conservative Republican.

To Both of you: You CAN vote straight ticket and make a one off deviation for a single candidate without otherwise invalidating your ticket. To Democrats this would be casting a vote on a slot you would otherwise not be voting on, for the Republicans it would be sending a message to the party that you don't want people who don't represent your values as a representative should.

The candidate I'm asking you to vote for instead is Scott Ford. As a Libertarian he's pro freedom to do as you please in your personal life which should appeal to the Democrats who don't have a dog in this fight. Also as a Libertarian unlike Dan Huberty he represents values Republicans care about where personal liberty and financial responsibility. In fact he comes closer to the written Republican platform on personal liberty than Mr. Huberty's voting record reflects.

Please - look into Mr. Ford, he won't disappoint you. He's a strong candidate in his own right, but when he's running against someone who acts like Mayor Quimby from the Simpsons it's just easier to point to his opponent and say "Do you really want him again?"

You know how I can tell these reviews are fake?  I generally sort by review, but I double check for stuff like this when I'm shopping.

Is it an accomplishment when I have another Libertarian block me because I point out fallacies in their presentation?

I've had a follower/one I follow in circles on here for a year or more. I'm not going to get too into the individual - I'm not out to name and shame or anything.

One of the posts I replied to - that got me blocked - had to do with Donald Trump. This guy absolutely was not a Trump fan - and as a Libertarian I can see his point. I did however take issue with the comic that showed Trump holding the Elephant mascot hostage demanding the nomination. Despite not really liking Trump - or Bernie Sander's who's in the same boat - I do see blatant inner party cheating in both races. I called him on siding with the party insiders over a valid candidate that is having delegates reassigned to others (usually Cruz) after Trump won them, and in cases of states like Colorado that just called off voting all together and handed their delegates to Cruz.

Am I the only Libertarian around here that would actually stand and protest the blatant corruption on behalf of the voters in the other two parties despite not supporting their candidates? I'm not fans of those candidates but I don't want to ignore this kind of cheating, once it's accepted it applies to us on the national level since we've already established cheating is acceptable in the primaries. It's so bad they aren't even hiding the cheating any more like they tried to do with Ron Paul (or for that matter Obama using Chicago politics to take it from Hilary in 08), they're just out in the open and praising it.

I would happily wear an Austin Peterson for President T-Shirt while waving a flag that said "Libertarians for Fair Elections" in a crowd full of Trump or Bernie protesters. Are there any of you (other than maybe the people fully on the Anarchist side of the line) that would do this with me?

Not to mention that local governments turn the area around Democratic and Republican conventions into mini-police states. I was working in the Boston area in 2004 when the Democrats had their convention there. The city was practically shut down to Make Way for Their Majesties. The economy ground to a halt, and I worked from home all week. Mayor Menino tried to make a local pizza shop owner take down a sign critical of the Democrats, and he set up a "free speech zone" outside of which protest was forbidden.

Our election results from this weekend were immediately block-chained.  I think this was a pretty damned good idea - each ballot had a number printed at the top.  You could take a photo of your ballot, turn it in, there was a paper copy, a block-chain copy, and if fraud happened and a couple of dozen people produced photos of ballots that disagreed with both it could really cause an issue.

This picture of course is from the 2014 convention, I scanned the area where I was sitting but I couldn't see myself, I probably have my head down.  This year we didn't have tables.
The Libertarian Party of Texas will log the results of its ballot initiatives on three separate blockchains implemented by Blockchain Technology Corp.

He was at the bar getting a drink, I offered to buy but he had these freebie coupons.  I was surprised by exactly how friendly and polite the guy was, he really matches the clothes.  I unfortunately didn't get much time to speak with him, my duties as delegate called.

Am I the only one who's had trouble with Google+ loading the past couple of days? It's not every time for me, but it's both at work and at home. It's like the text loads but all the videos, images, and often times even the status bell just aren't there to be found.

New - that's probably why it doesn't work right.  I figure they're going to force it eventually, might as well use it now.  I may go back.

I wrote the bulk of this for a post on the internal work social network. I thought it was worth sharing. Be sure to click and read, it's more than just a picture.
Let me ask a question of each of you: If you lived in a bad neighborhood would you lock your door? If you had your house broken into several times with no entry marks and the lock smith told you that you're using a lock that could be easily picked with a plastic knife and a rubber band would you continue to use that lock? If you got your house broke into AGAIN after the locksmith told you that and you ignored him would you keep using tha...

Slightly on the expensive side. Five Guys and Mooyah have just as good of burgers if not better for cheaper, but this place has a "real restaurant" atmosphere where those other two feel more fast food. My only complaint about eating at this (or other Fudruckers) is my fellow patrons. For instance I just left a few minutes ago, there were two women looking at the soda dispenser like it was alien technology and they just stood in front of the thing and stared. Finally after a few minutes they got out of the way, sans soda. When they paged me to get my burger the same two women were staring at the condiment dispensers the same way. (Sadly this part of the review was written before they put in the newer touch-screen soda dispensers) I don't mean to pick on these two women, this happens every time I'm there. There is always someone who seems to not have the slightest idea how to work a salad bar or a pump dispenser and they're always just ahead of you, every time you turn around. At least the staff is great and I don't think they've ever messed up my order, which is better than I can say about most places. It would also be nice if they had a bike rack for me to park at, as it stands I chain my bike to a pole in the middle of their bushes. I had to knock a star off because the "red spice" - I'm not sure what it is - that every single other Fuddruckers I've been to has is not available at this location and hasn't been in years. If you ask for it someone might hunt down a shaker - they blame it on theft, usually walk around the place, look at every table and the fixin's bar where it should be, but it's never there, it wasn't there when they opened that day, I don't know why they look.
