Hi, I'm Marissa...

...and I'm a transgender libertarian:

There seems to be a lot of confusion about just who and what I am, so I thought I'd put a face to it. I've seen a lot of assumptions thrown around about what it means to be gay, lesbian, bisexual, and/or transgender, so rather than assume, why not just ask? I'm putting myself out here to answer any questions you might have, and I invite others who identify as LGBT to join in. My hope is that we can all better understand each other, because without love, there cannot be liberty. All that I ask is that everyone please keep things civil.

To kick things off, I will ask myself a question:

Marissa, how did you become a libertarian?

It was actually due to many factors, which I'm sure is the case with most of you. It became quite obvious to me, around the 2003 time frame that if we continued to fight wars overseas, we would be facing serious financial difficulties, as a nation. I, obviously, felt quite alienated by social conservatism that dominated the republican party, at the time, but abhorred many of the stances of the democratic party. Most significantly was their willingness to try and take my gun collection (yes, this girl packs heat!) So, I went about considering myself some kind of hybrid of both parties, selecting what I thought were the best ideas from each, until I first heard of libertarianism. Turns out, my hybrid party fell perfectly inline with the libertarian philosophy, and I have identified as such, ever since.

Texas bill would treat marijuana like a common crop: 100% deregulated and untaxed

Austin, Texas – In a bold piece of legislation, Rep. David Simpson (R) filed a bill that would delete any mention of marijuana from state law. It would completely deregulate it and treat it as any common crop.

In a press release, Simpson said he supported regulating marijuana like the state regulates “tomatoes, jalapeños or coffee.”

“Everything that God made is good, even marijuana” said state Rep. Simpson. “The conservative thought is that government doesn’t need to fix something that God made good.”

A recent poll by Pew Research has shown that 63 percent of Republicans under the age of 34 support legalization of marijuana (vs. 77 percent of Democrats of the same age.)

Two DPers In A Room, With Space For More (June 5 / 6 get together?)


http://youtu.be/JY5Eho4VRGw
This is just outside of Cambridge, Idaho, about 2 hours from Boise.
The lodge sleeps 7, there is a hostel that sleeps 10, and there are campsites and RV sites, full hook ups. Free WiFi, hot pool access, situated on the Weiser River (fishing) with bike path (rails to trails, very nice!) and would come to about $30 per person (for lodge and hostel, camping is less.)

The Rand Paul clap gap: Why the GOP is afraid to have a real debate about foreign policy

"Monitoring the relative enthusiasm of applause has an ugly history, mostly in dictatorships. In The Gulag Archipelago, Alexander Solzhenitsyn records a political rally in the Soviet Union where, after a tribute to Comrade Stalin, everyone stood up and gave "stormy applause" that stretched on for several minutes as Soviet secret police watched. Eleven minutes into this strenuous and stressful exercise in demonstrating loyalty, the director of a local paper factory, likely exhausted, stopped and sat down. Everyone else soon followed him. Solzhenitsyn writes:

That same night the factory director was arrested. They easily pasted ten years on him on the pretext of something quite different. But after he had signed Form 206, the final document of the interrogation, his interrogator reminded him:

He's a bit young to drive a car, but when it comes to driving diggers on building sites he's an old hand.
Wang Shuhan, from Wuhan, in central China's Hubei Province, is only five-years-old yet he's already an expert at operating building site machinery.

The youngster was taught by his father Wang Xuebing, who videoed him calmly driving the digger around and using its scoop to pick up and move sand.

Florida Parents Called “Book-Burning Nazis” for Questioning School Board Over New Indoctrination Curriculum

I examined seventh-grade “Civics in Practice” and it contained numerous factual inaccuracies.
For example, on Page 100 it states, “The Constitution can be changed in two ways; formally by Amendment, and informally by Government.” This notion of dictatorship is enhanced by eighth-grade textbook “United States History,” which states on Page 185, “The President issues Executive Orders. These commands have the power of law.”
