US Census worker spying on people living in Manchester

On Sunday April 6th, 2014 a US census worker approached the Rebel Love studios in Manchester NH.  She appeared at the door in order to gather information for the United States government on intimate details about the people that allegedly live at this location.  The following video is the interaction between myself and the agent of the state.

This April the Rebel Love Show launches with myself and Free Manch blogger Joel Valenzuela.

Minimum Wage is Too Damn High

Thu, 2014-03-27 02:18 +0000

On Tuesday March 25th, 2014, five activists from Manchester including myself and Free Manch blogger Joel Valenzuela drove to Nashua New Hampshire to protest the rally to raise minimum wage.  According to the Nashua Telegraph, Vice President Joe Biden was to be speaking at the event.  Unfortunately, Joe Biden did not show.  However, neither did anyone else.  The crowd consisted mostly of activists from Manchester, a friend of the Free State Project (who none of us had ever met), and the local media. The most interesting part of the event was how the “show” went on.  There was no real reason to do a political presentation to just protesters, yet they did it anyways.  The Union Leader interviewed us and mentioned the protest in their article.

What happens when you exercise your rights at the Manchester airport

Fri, 2014-03-21 19:05 +0000

I’m always excited to read the latest edition of FPP.cc News. Yesterday morning, a few friends and I thought the passengers might enjoy reading the message of liberty after their complimentary molestation, so we went to the airport to hand out some papers.

John Adams, Facilities Director at Manchester-Boston Regional Airport, did not like the fact that I was handing out free newspapers to passengers. I handed out about five newspapers when Mr. Adams approached me with three cops following behind him. He was very rude, told me that I had to get a permit, stand in one of the two designated soliciting areas (at either outside end of the terminal), and stop handing out material. When asked if I could talk to other people in the public areas, I was told “no,” and the conversation was over. He refused to answer my questions, and refused to talk with me for the remainder of my visit. Hey, I figured he really must be some big-shot if he can override the Constitution.  What authority does this man have that he thinks he can control individuals with his voice? That’s right … “Facilities Director.”

Apparently, the debate wasn’t over. My first act of defiance toward this petty tyrant was to simply to start waving and wishing passengers a safe flight. Hmmm, nothing happened. Maybe this dog was more bark than bite.

After establishing that the airport was public property, yet being told several times that I was not free to be free — end of story — I started asking what would happened if I continued on my heinous crime spree. The debate wasn’t over and finally when asked I was told “If you interfere with the flow of passengers, you’ll be arrested.” SWEET!!! Back to passing out newspapers!

Credit where credit is due, Mr. Adams directs a lovely building. He was even kind enough to provide police escorts for us, the rest of our time in the building. The officers following us around told us they were instructed to follow my every move because I was also exercising my Second Amendment right by carrying a rifle. They seemed to be the only ones alarmed. A lady even came up to me laughing while saying, “You know you are in New Hampshire.”

While I walked around the airport, I wondered: how much taxpayer money goes to Mr. Adams? How can someone in charge of such an operation be totally unaware of the Constitution? It’s really not that hard to figure out. Individuals have a right to assemble and express themselves on public property. That’s it. Mr. Adams was very upset that his words and policies could not stop people determined to exercise their rights.

What happens when you exercise your rights at the Manchester airport? They order you to stop, they harass you, they intimidate you, and they follow you around. Since it’s obvious people are so confused it’s important to stand up and clear things up a bit. Yes, I like the Manchester Airport. I think I’ll go back.

In Liberty,
Carrots

Open Carry and Free Speech Activism at the Manchester Airport

Fri, 2014-03-21 07:26 +0000

On the morning of March 20th, 2014, Joe “Liberty Carrots,” Nemi Jones, Riaz Kahan and I went to the Manchester-Boston Regional Airport to support the First and Second Amendments to the United States Constitution.  Joe was the creative star of this activism effort, stopped multiple times by airport security and threatened with arrest for handing out free copies of the monthly liberty newspaper FPPNews from Free Press Publications.

No airport security agents or police questioned the fact that Joe was open-carrying a rifle. They did, however, take great issue with our exercise of free speech and expression:

Critical Mass

Sat, 2014-03-15 01:04 +0000

If there’s one thing the liberty movement at large needs, it’s critical mass. Enough people in one place to actually accomplish something. The Free State Project was founded for precisely that purpose: to bring a critical mass of liberty-loving activists to New Hampshire so that we may have liberty in our lifetime.

Well, if you’ve been around Manchester lately, it’s beginning to look an awful lot like critical mass.

We’ve got a large activism center, the Quill, which is frequented at all hours of the day and night. We’ve got Area 23, an event and classroom space, in constant use throughout the week hosting events and classes on everything from ballroom dancing to home brewing to self-defense.

And don’t even get me started on the Bitcoin community here. Manchester’s Bitcoin meetup has outgrown the biggest establishments in town. The community is big enough, in fact, that I managed to live for a week off of only Bitcoin, while barely trying.

With the right idea and the right motivation, great things can happen. All we need is critical mass. In this area, Manchester is definitely leading the way.
