LIBERTY: Consider carefully where you will “land”!

When I was but a wee lad, (OK I was never “wee”. And even “lad” might be doubtful. But play along!) before I graduated college, even before I found my soul mate, I went on vacation to Nevada. It was, at that time, a land of freedom. The Wild West. No speed limits, no drinking age, no gambling age, no taxes, not much gooferment, not much water. It was Paradise in the dessert. (Or desert!) I said to myself: “Boy, what great place to live. I should move here after graduation.” And, when vacation ended, I went home. And, forgot about it. (Guess I didn’t write it down. And, there were no blogs in those days to capture the possibilities.)

Lo and behold, I wake up many decades later and “Shouldas, wouldas, and couldas” are eating me alive. How would life have been different if I had moved for Freedom, Liberty, and the “Wild West”. Now, I’m “anchored” with the thousand strings that held Gulliver in Lilliput. And, old fart stuck in his ways.

But you’re not!

May I point out that there is another “land of freedom” emerging? The Free State Project is moving 20k Liberty Lovers to NH. They will transform the landscape. And, bring liberty to that State. Too late for me; not for you!

I urge you to take a jaunt to Porcfest and meet some pioneers.

Lest, like Scrooge, you wake up one Christmas morning, many decades from now and say “Shouldas, wouldas, and couldas”.

College Music Service Ruckus.com Shuts Down

At around 5 PM EST today the site went down with a notice stating that it was undergoing an update. As of 5:30, it was displaying the shutdown notice seen above.
We’re told that music that has not passed its “renew date” still works, but that music that has expired will no longer work because the DRM licensing server has apparently shut down.

And, people argue that “cloud computing” is the wave of the future?

RANT: THE 1T$ poop

The so called stimulus bill is a national disgrace. We may, in fact, need a stimulus for the economy. But, that issue, imho, is very much in doubt. If so, the way to do that is to ELIMINATE the corporate income tax. Corporations don’t pay taxes; people do. Corporations just pass taxes along and hide them in the price of goods sold. TO everyone; even poor people. (Eliminate the corporate tax and watch the foreign government REALLY complain about unfair competition.) That will jump start the economy! DOn’t come back to New Jersey and try to “sell” this stimulus as a good thing. If you want me to EVER vote for a D agin. THe D’s ‘own” this mess.
