Reasonableness, and a sense of humor. That is a mighty combination.
And doesnt it always come down to AH.

QMC, if you havent said elsewhere, have you served in the military? Overseas? Thanks.

I think you are quite wrong in the case of 4. But 3 was the most interesting response.
5 was a bit silly, it probably goes more to what is the war and where is it, how do you determine if the strategy is making progress
What is the longest war in American history?


Yes, we know personally members of the military who have asked to return to the war theater time and time again.
However, I believe many would love to have a strong defense and the return of our troops.

If you believe we need to have our military over there year in and year out, there are expected choices on the ballot.


Whatever your views, would you agree that voters deserve a choice? Should we not have candidates asking whether our efforts are truly in the national interest?
 If the only choice is an R and a D, then wouldnt that mean the troops remain overseas no matter. [Maybe in different numbers]

July 12th, 2010: Drug War Update with Doug Greene of Empire State NORML & Cures not Wars


On Saturday, July 10, 2010 , Paul Garrin, the founder of NAME.SPACE & WiFi-NY , will discuss Net Neutrality & The Loss of 4th Amendment Rights
Bohemian Hall


LBTs should be at the Bohemian meeting room at 11. This is one of the rare occasions where I hope to find them as well. Then perhaps a drink at Bohemian soon after around 12 or 12:30. There is yet another world cup game today, so maybe there will be crowds in the afternoon. If it is a bit crowded, might pop over to Sparrow then.
Cheers.

I am surprised that Manhattan would not have yet a presentation scheduled for Sept. 14. And I am usually more hesitant with the Queens announcements lately, but will post anyway.
 Ripped from the headlines.  It falls this month on Sept. 11. [And I expect to miss the event.]

Bohemian Hall
11am [Downstairs bar/restaurant area]
Who Is The Enemy In America's War On Terror?


I am looking forward and hope to find worthy a trans-partisan fee event. One sponsor is the MLP.
Liberty Festival Sept 18
Doors open from 3pm Social Bar, NY

http://www.socialbarnyc.com/


$15 donations going to http://www.fealgoodfoundation.com/

The primary mission of the FealGood Foundation, a non-profit organization, is to spread awareness and educate the public about the catastrophic health effects on 9/11 first responders, as well as to provide assistance to relieve these great heroes of the financial burdens placed on them over the last eight years.

A secondary goal of the Foundation is to create a network of advocacy on 9/11 healthcare issues.

Hope to find out how late the Liberty festival plans to run.

 a special request

Checks, payable to Redlich for Governor, can be mailed to:

Redlich for Governor
255 Washington Ave.
Suite 108
Albany, NY 12205

You may be upset by this, but the maximum contribution is $55,900. Andrew Cuomo has received 30 contributions of $50,000 or more.

Of course our expectations are much lower. The largest contribution so far was $1000, and we have received contributions as small as $10. Any contribution is appreciated.

We shouldn’t conflate our political opponents with enemies, if for no other reason than to draw a better distinction between the manifestos of paranoid madmen and what passes for political and pundit speak. it would be really nice if the ramblings of crazy people didn’t in any way resemble how we actually talk to each other

Hey TRX,

What's the word on the Queens leadership?  Been wanting to come out to a meeting but forget to put in on my calendar.  Perhaps in March.

I saw a blogpost somewhere saying that Tom Stevens and John Procida, who are listed on the website as contacts for the Queens Chapter, were kicked out.  But, it didn't say why?

Any insight?

I'd like to hear sometime about nugget life.

The NY LP still has fewer than 3000 enrolled voters last report, and election records did not show the 50K meaningful votes. So the protest efforts continue as usual.

Not being a primary party, it works like clubs. One may be a member supporting national efforts, or state efforts, or local county.
As far as I know (which is maybe not more than you), Queens Libertarians continue on as before and meet most months at Bohemian hall.
I will post if I find an event of special interest.

The NY state LBT will be meeting late April on Long Island. I would expect most of the activists there to come from LI, upstate, and Manhattan.
2011 is an off year. 2012 is a national election. I sometimes forget that Gillibrand would be running again then.
The LP meets May 2012 in Vegas.

Cheers. Hope to see you around with the season warming.

Last weekend, some of the NY Libertarians across the state convened on Long Island.
Maybe I could write more later but largely there is a great deal of continuity, and the state party is largely led by activists from LI which is not uncommon.

I enjoyed brief remarks from a newly published author, CJ Maloney. He will be speaking in Manhattan next Monday May 9. Generally dont enjoy most historic presentations. This may be about his book
Back to the Land
http://ebookstore.sony.com/ebook/c-j-maloney/back-to-the-land/_/R-400000000000000349204

http://www.amazon.com/Back-Land-Arthurdale-Economic-Planning/dp/0470610638/

Quote
In Back to the Land, author CJ Maloney tells the true story of Arthurdale, West Virginia, a town created as a "pet project" of the Roosevelts. Designed to be (in the words of Eleanor Roosevelt) "a human experiment station", she was to create a "New American" citizen who would embrace a collectivist form of life. This book tells the story of what happened to the people resettled in Arthurdale and how the policies implemented there shaped America as we know it.

If the presentation is really of more interest, will see if he may be speaking at Bohemian soon this year.

CJ Maloney (registered Dem) - "Liberty is a powerful progressive force."

What time is it?


I don't know yet what choices Astoria may have in Nov.
In NY, Monday evening has a video doc on the third party campaign effort by Nolan from 2004.
[My expectations are low, but somewhat curious]


http://manhattanlp.org/events/


NY Libertarians from around the state are meeting in April in Manhattan. That is a ticketed fundraiser.
I would like to see additional speakers of interest, and a chance to meet Carla, the new natl party director. The Jan. confab was better than expected. I especially enjoyed the presentation on TSA vs civil liberties.
