Libertarians Trail Meter Readers, Telling Town: Live Free or Else
http://www.nytimes.com/2014/05/05/us/politics/libertarians-trail-meter-r...
Quote from article:
"Keene’s two parking officers, both women, are often videotaped by young adults known as “Robin Hooders.” They track the whereabouts of the officers by two-way radio, feed expired meters before $5 tickets can be written, and leave a business card saying that “we saved you from the king’s tariff.”
This is part of a larger and more profound problem in our current political climate, where intimidation and hatred have become quaint stories.
Welcome to Sherwood Forest, N.H., where these acts of charity have led to some donations and gratitude, but also to sidewalk tensions, harassment allegations and litigation. They are part of a broader effort by about two-dozen activists, most of them from someplace else, to unshackle Keene from the “violent monopoly” of government and its enforcers, including these parking officers who work in weather fair and foul."

STOP FREE KEENE!!!

For all the Toledo Tea Party Libertarians who can't stand Northwest Ohio you now can migrate to your own state, New Hampshire. The Free State Project http://freestateproject.org/ has reached 3/4 of its goal of 20,000 Libertarians living in New Hampshire. Not since the hippie invasion of Woodstock has New England seen a more unwelcome bunch of guests https://www.facebook.com/groups/stopfreekeene/?ref=br_tf . So load up the freedom bus with your leader Charlie Earl and join the battle in Keene!

WSPD Fred: When I was sent this I thought of you and your video camera stalling anyone with an opposing view. We've seen you throughout Toledo videoing any opposition to our government hacks. Some of us think you work for Homeland Security. Is this true? Maybe a radio shill by day and a government agent by night.

Although I can't admit "on the record" my government service for DHS, I can say that my video camera stalking has saved a number of lives. If I were a government agent, and I'm not saying I am or that I'm not, I would certainly be proud of my label as unofficial documentarian of the Occupy Toledo movement. One of my favorites from the "movement"

Not really understanding why I would head to the Bundy ranch. I cover mostly local stories and the Bundy ranch is not in Toledo. The "occupy the Toledo park" movement didn't have the coverage it deserved so I provided that, the Bundy incident has plenty of coverage so no need for me to be there. Maybe you could be more specific as to why you want more local coverage of the Bundy incident MrIgnorant, it appears you've been able to find multiple videos on the topic already.
Here's an example of a local story that still makes me smile

No Fred this is your opportunity to take over where the disgraced Shawn Hannity left off. Not since the Nancy Grace kerfuffle http://swampbubbles.com/blogs/mrindependent/20130906/hurry-fred-call-nancy has this thing have your name written all over it. Look at all the national shameless promotion you could garner for the near bankrupt CCMO WSPD? Yes I'm sure there is room for another Bundy fool in the national spotlight. Go for it Fred! Become the Bundy unofficial documentarian. Don't forget the flack jacket, these right wing extremists are not OWS peaceful protesters.

I'll disregard all the misspellings and focus on just your point that this is some kind of opportunity for me. I don't focus on national issues, mostly local ones. Not listening to the show on a regular basis you wouldn't know that of course. I'm not interested in the Bundy story, as I believe he is in the wrong. This really sounds like more the type of story you would be interested in or maybe Thom Hartmann to show the difference in how Tea Party and OWS protestors are treated differently. I have no interest.

I seen one of your own at the Verizon store yesterday. This guy was in his late 20s, cowboy boots, Ted Nugent style hat and packing a semi automatic hand gun on his waist. Is this what our country has turned into, an armed state? Trouble waiting to happen. I pack my manhood between my legs. I took the CCW classes and can carry if need be. But after taking the class (schooled in the law) I decided the liability is just not worth it! Now they want to carry in the bars. What the hell?!

You know what, you should post this on Toledo Talk.... oh wait.

A guy carrying a legal firearm constitutes an "armed state" now in your head? I don't think your manhood is tucked anywhere, I think it's missing.

I'd say tucked between the legs is correct.

Are you really this delusional? The United States has always been an "armed state".

We don't need another Grammar Nazi here, we have enough of them.

Crawl into the corner, lay your subservient ass down for the Federal Government...Move over I'll take the stand for you...

They track the whereabouts of the officers by two-way radio, feed expired meters before $5 tickets can be written, and leave a business card saying that “we saved you from the king’s tariff.”

Nothing wrong with any of that. Of course, the economics of limited downtown parking is problematic. There's just no good solution.

Good for them.

They are breaking no laws, the municipality still gets money by way of the change fed into the parking meter.

I guess I'd ask you this Paul, why do you have a problem with it?
