January 15th, 2016 - 11:02pm by FTL_Ian in

Keene native Jared Goodell again had me on as a guest this week on his morning show in Manchester on WFEA 1370 & 99.9 . This time, we discussed the recent lawsuit by the NH ACLU against the City of Manchester regarding their arrests of panhandlers.

I told Jared that the City of Manchester will be losing the suit, as they have across the United States. I don’t like panhandling, but as long as we have the idea of public property, free speech must be respected, and that includes asking for money. However, the solution to panhandling is changing all public property to private property. Here’s the full interview :

Free UBER founder Christopher David hit the activism scene in a major way on the Seacoast in late 2015, blowing up the mainstream media with his open civil disobedience against the transportation ordinances of Portsmouth, NH. He went in a different direction from most keynoters at Keenevention by getting down into the audience and conducting a group discussion about ending the state in our lifetime. It was epic.

Don’t Answer Police Questions!

January 2nd, 2016 - 6:57pm by FTL_Ian in

On my way home from recording the “Free the Nipple” trials in Laconia this week , I was pulled over in Tilton for having a Shire Society license plate on the front of the cruiser I was driving and a Wisconsin plate on the back. Here’s the interaction I had with the officer . To his credit, he let me put the other Wisconsin plate on and did not ticket me.

When the officer asks the routine question about the address on the license, he’s fishing to see if you’ve moved recently, and if you have done so without notifying the state within some amount of days. He can write you a ticket for that. So, by answering that question...
