Little Free Libraries

The first of the Economics in One Lesson books have been deployed to eight of the Little Free Libraries in Nashua. A copy was placed at each location in the table.

Donations to sponsor this project were received in cryptocurrency in both Bitcoin and Dash. Several of the books include a bookmark with a small amount of Dash that can be retrieved from a paper wallet that will auto-refund to the Nashua Liberty wallet if it is not claimed. This capability was enabled by cryptotip.org.

Thank you to everyone who donated. Follow-up posts will be provided if any of the Dash is claimed and/or when it returns to the Nashua Liberty Wallet.

I believe there are several other locations scattered throughout the city that we’ll visit on the next round.

Getting involved before (or after!) you move

Sometimes people ask how they can get involved in helping New Hampshire before they move to Nashua. One great way would be to join the NewHampshire Liberty Alliance (NHLA) or setup a recurring donation to the NHLA Political Action fund or Operations fund.

The PAC fund is used to provide financial support to endorsed candidates for state level offices. These endorsements are based on on the NHLA’s Liberty Rating for incumbents and are based primarily on a candidate survey for candidates without an established voting record.  The Liberty Rating is a score card that rates members based on how closely they voted to the weekly publication – The Gold Standard.

The operations fund covers the costs for items such as printing of the Gold Standard – a voting guide that volunteers distribute each week at the state house as well as covering the costs for running their website or other operating costs that don’t map directly to candidates.

 

Feb 11, 2019 – School Board Meeting

There is a good chance that Nashua State Rep Schmidt will attend the Feb 11, 2019 school board meeting to ask the school board to support HB101. This bill would for the first time give local school boards the authority to infringe upon the rights of citizens by adopting a ban on self-defense on school grounds.

The main calendar site for the school board currently shows that the board meeting will be from 07:00 PM to 09:00 PM@ Nashua High School North – Lecture Hall – B166.

Existing Law that would be modified by the above bill.

MeWe

 

We’ve had a group on facebook for many years and I don’t see that going away any time soon but we are tentatively trying to have a group on mewe now as well given the data privacy and hostile political leanings of facebook.

Feel free to check us out there and help grow the size of the mewe community.

Happy Porcupine Day

On February 3, 2016 the Free State Project reached their goal of getting  20,000 participants to sign the Statement of Intent to move to New Hampshire, where they will “exert their fullest practical effort toward the creation of a society in which the maximum role of government is the protection of individuals’ rights to life, liberty and property.”

To commemorate this day, Nashua Liberty in conjunction with the people of the city of Nashua have raised the Porcupine flag over City Hall – This was enabled by the city’s Citizen Flagpole program.

Flat Stanley

Recently, we received a large envelope in the mail that was part of a student Flat Stanley project. The intent behind these projects is that students create a small paper avatar of themselves and mail it, along with a list of desired recipients, to a friend or family in a different geographical region. The idea is that each person should take some pictures of the avatar in interesting local venues, and then forward the bundle on to the next person on the list.

Since we did some driving around Nashua and southern NH in general, seemed worth a post. Continue reading
