Exercising Liberty in a Cave: The Man Who Quit Money

The Man Who Quit Money

In 2000, Daniel Suelo left his life savings—all thirty dollars of it—in a phone booth. He has been living without money—and with a newfound sense of freedom and security—ever since.
The Man Who Quit Money is an account of how one man learned to live, sanely and happily, without earning, receiving, or spending a single cent. Suelo doesn't pay taxes, or accept food stamps or welfare. He lives in caves in the Utah canyonlands, forages wild foods and gourmet discards. He no longer even carries an I.D. Yet he manages to amply fulfill not only the basic human needs-for shelter, food, and warmth-but, to an enviable degree, the universal desires for companionship, purpose, and spiritual engagement. In retracing the surprising path and guiding philosophy that led Suelo into this way of life, Sundeen raises provocative and riveting questions about our relationships with money and the decisions we all make, by default or by design—about how we live and how we might live better.

WATCH: New Rochelle police officer holds teens at gunpoint over a snowball fight

"A video uploaded by New Rochelle’s Talk of the Sound, a New York police officer can be seen holding several teens at gunpoint after being called out for a disturbance which turned out to be a snowball fight earlier this week.

In the video, the officer can be seen pointing his weapon at the kneeling teens, telling them “Don’t f*cking move, guys,” as he approaches them while speaking into his shoulder-mounted radio mic. "

Police Viciously Sent Dogs To Attack Female Student For Resisting To Answer Their Questions

On Norfolk State University grounds, police sent dogs to attack female student and Army Reserve private London Colvin. According to reports, she refused to answer any of their questions or give any information about a fight at a party she wasn’t even involved in. Right before the cops had the dogs charge at her, two of them sat on Colvin and then the dogs mauled her, according to eyewitnesses.

Colvin, a current Sociology major was leaving an off-campus party at 2:15 on a Sunday just as a fight erupted. She and her friends were approached by police about what happened or how it started and because she had nothing to do with it, she didn’t want care to have a discourse about it. The aftermath of her resistance has been shared through her cousin Whitney Dunn via the local paper Potomac Local. On Colvin’s behalf, Dunn said this:

Booed in the Bible Belt

Booed in the Bible Belt

I didn't realize how dark it was until that night,
Of all places, I thought they would get it right,
But in darkness that could be felt,
They booed Ron Paul in the Bible Belt.

In the land of chapels and churches and more,
Where Bibles can be bought in every store,
Abysmal darkness enveloped all,
As they booed Dr. Ron Paul,
And under ever-darkening skies,
They cheered those with blood-lust in their eyes,
In the very place where great men once prayed and knelt,
They booed Ron Paul in the Bible Belt.

It was when Ron Paul took a stand,
Apply the Golden Rule to every land,
Quoting the words that Jesus said,
But he spoke to hearts quite dead,
And in that darkness that could be felt,
They booed Ron Paul in the Bible Belt.

Rand Paul Tied for 2nd in New National Poll

White evangelical Christians are also most likely to back Romney (15 percent), with Huckabee (13 percent), Bush and Paul (10 percent each) close behind.

The new Fox poll also asks voters their second choice candidate, so we can look at what happens to the competition if someone were to drop out of the running for the nomination. For example, if Romney decides against a third run for the presidency, Bush grabs the top spot (15 percent) and Huckabee and Paul tie for second (13 percent).

Driver's Licenses: Repugnant to the Constitution, and getting more repulsive

http://www.idahostatesman.com/2015/01/29/3616960/failure-to-...

The right to TRAVEL by the common mode of the times is something the SCOTUS has upheld. They have stated you cannot charge people to exercise their rights, but the states ignored the rulings and kept issuing licenses to drive. Now, there are folks here who can give you proper schooling on the difference between "drive" and "travel" but in a nutshell, if you are NOT engaged in a commercial enterprise with your vehicle, you are travelling, not driving. (Welcome to Babylon, where nothing means what you think it does.)

One of the very first Ron Paul supporters I met was in the heat of this fight. He spent a lot of time in court, a lot of time in jail, and he finally left the state and, I suspect, got a license. Last I heard he was driving a concrete truck and I just doubt he got that job without a license.

I do not understand why this issue is not a hot topic in liberty circles. In Idaho, we were so proud when we "defeated" the "REAL ID Act" but it seems we are about to be punished for our insolence. In my opinion, if the Boise airport cannot take my Idaho license as legal ID, the airport needs to move to another state, but that is not how this will go down.

How Playing Music Benefits Your Brain More than Any Other Activity

How Playing Music Benefits Your Brain More than Any Other Activity
by Maria Popova

“Playing music is the brain’s equivalent of a full-body workout.”

“Each note rubs the others just right, and the instrument shivers with delight. The feeling is unmistakable, intoxicating,” musician Glenn Kurtz wrote in his sublime meditation on the pleasures of practicing, adding: “My attention warms and sharpens… Making music changes my body.” Kurtz’s experience, it turns out, is more than mere lyricism — music does change the body’s most important organ, and changes it more profoundly than any other intellectual, creative, or physical endeavor.

Real ID: TSA to Require Secure Identification to Board Flights in 2016

By Erin Breen | January 29, 2015

Security for flying in this country is tightening up. And your driver's license just may be your ticket to boarding airplanes in the future. Sometime in 2016, the TSA will require you to show a security enhanced driver's license called a Real ID card or a passport to board flights.

"It is a choice," said David Fierro, Public Information Officer for the Department of Motor Vehicles. "It's not mandatory. It's a choice for secured identification. If you use a passport when you're traveling you don't have any problems. If you use your driver's license as identification, you'll need to either apply for the Real ID card or get a passport."

New Mexico Grand Jury Finds Police Shooting Unjustified- DA Refuses to Prosecute

The Santa Fe police originally claimed that Mendez shot at the officers, however they later admitted this to be false and that he had been unarmed.

The department also claimed that when the officers tried to get Mendez out of his vehicle, he backed up and hit a police car, almost running down officers and drove toward them before they fired.

This claim was also proven to be false after a dash-cam video was released showing that the officers fired six shots into the vehicle as Mendez is driving away from and not towards the officers.

In Ohio, Two Groups Have Very Different Proposals to Legalize Marijuana

Last week, we reported that a pro-legalization group in Ohio called Responsible Ohio had revealed the details of their campaign to pass a constitutional amendment to legalize recreational marijuana in the state. My analysis noted that the proposal is far from ideal due to the cartelized enterprise the amendment would create.

The proposal would create a seven-member Marijuana Control Commission, five marijuana testing facilities to check potency, and would only license ten legal growing locations. This boondoggle of an amendment would basically hand control for growing, selling, and distributing of marijuana over to the state government.

Luckily, there is another option for the good people of Ohio. A Political Action Committee (PAC) called Responsible Ohioans for Cannabis are pushing to get enough signatures in order to get their ballot initiative, End Ohio Cannabis Prohibition Act (EOCPA), onto the ballot for Ohioans to vote on it in 2016. The proposal presented by the Responsible Ohioans for Cannabis would allow for entrepreneurs, not government bureaucrats, to develop the quickly growing legal marijuana market.
