Libertarians can be exhausting. Because libertarianism has so many attractive features and strong statements about “freedom” and “liberty” they have a lot of perceived political high ground when arguing with them. The problem with libertarianism – as it is with Marxism, capitalism and so many other philosophies – is that it’s entirely theoretical. Trying to construct an actual framework around the concepts they hold dear is like arguing over how Santa Claus fits down the chimney. That said, there’s a lot to like about some of the principles of libertarianism and its acolytes are growing in numbers every day. So let’s have at it. In part one of this two-part series we’ll unpack the origins of the philosophy, its dark beginnings and define several strains of the discipline.

I enjoyed listening to the featured speaker and our HD 134 Representative Ann Johnson when I attended the Bellaire Braeswood Democrats October Meeting. Sometimes being a Surrogate for Paul Calzada’s PaulForJudge Campaign while he attends another meeting IRL has its advantages!

UNFTR ANNIVERSARY EPISODE

Hey! I got a personal shoutout at minute 36:58-37:23 🥳🥳🥳 “Maria C.” Oh, wait, also at 41:00!!

From Chile to the United States, 9/11 and #UNFTR Unf*cking the Republic

911 UNFTR EPISODE

Everything below was shamelessly copied and pasted exactly from UNFTR EPISODE SHOW NOTES. Subscribe, rate and support them.

Today’s episode is a departure from our normal format. We were tempted to let the 20th anniversary of 9/11 pass given it will be oversaturated with remembrances and armchair punditry as well as the usual tragedy porn imagery. But the impact of 9/11 remains so widespread that it’s impossible to ignore. So, we wanted to add something honest, critical and ultimately hopeful to the mix. This episode contains none of our typical irreverence or profanity, nor do we traffic in speculation or conspiracy. Rather, this is a story of a consequential date in history told in three parts and beginning nearly 50 years ago.

HELL NO

What in the world do Nurse Practitioners (the NP Lobby) think they are trying to do?? READ this BILL

HB 2029 / SB 915 

NPs really did yank themselves under the “oppressive yolk” [sarcasm] of our (more highly trained and qualified) MDs and DOs and put themselves on EXACTLY EQUAL FOOTING with their boot on PA’s necks. Um,…HELL NO!
