This week, I discuss the Oscar-worthy performances of Will Smith and Chris Rock after ‘The Slap,” how this was a violation of the Non-Aggression Principle, and maaaaybe I throw in a new Big Pharma conspiracy prediction for good measure! I also cover what’s up with the son of the Top Dog’s super shady laptop… Did the New York Times admit that Hunter Biden’s laptop is authentic, contains extremely damning evidence, and yet… crickets? Tune in to find out!
This week, I am joined by Rachel Goldsmith from the New Hampshire Chapter of Mom’s for Liberty. We talk about teachers’ unions, literacy rates, and other ways schools are failing their students. Rachel tells us about some upcoming events and ways to get involved to improve the lives of all our students!
Got this FABULOUS bracelet at Revolution on Sunday after I stopped in White River Junction on the way back from Barre, VT where I delivered the keynote of the VT LP Convention. Normally, I’m one of those drivers that just likes to get where I’m going, but I am trying to listen better to the voice in my head when it suggests indulgences like side-quests.
Before I got canceled from the NH Writer’s Project, I organized several NH Literary Festivals across the state. One of these was held in WRJ, even though it is technically in VT. I had to go to bat for holding the festival there, and since then, WRJ has held a special place in my heart.
I was delighted to see the tiny coffeehouse, Tuckerbox, has grown into a thriving, huuuuge restaurant. Even happier to learn Kim Souza, owner of Revolution, is now serving as selectman. Glad I listened to the voice reminding me it is actually both the destination and the journey that matter, and that trying to achieve balance in all things leads to happiness and success! (And beautiful bracelets!)
Man, today was crazy! This Laconia Sun article came out, and other than them spelling my name wrong… twice!… it’s not too biased: Who are the free staters? I also did an interview with Tom Woods that will drop tomorrow. We’re planning to make it a quarterly thing: Dispatches from The Woods, maybe?!? And also, it is the 12th year anniversary of my arrest for filming cops in public. I prevailed, four years later.
This week, I chatted to the one and only Tom Woods about the goings on in the Free State of New Hampshire. Clearly, as you will see at the start, I was unable to get my magic editing faeries to help, but there you have it!
Crossover coming up at the State House. New trashcans for downtown. Hunter Biden’s laptop. It’s another week and we cover a lot of topics!
It was a light cooking week in my rustic, #freedomnomnom #keto kitchen since I fasted from last Sunday night to Friday at 6pm, FIVE DAYS. (I’m working on a piece about the fasting that I will share this week.)Those who follow along–THANK YOU!– may have noticed I skipped a few weeks. I had other priorities, and something had to give and the time I spend on this on Sundays was it. But, instead of continuing to slack, here I am reporting for duty! Not to anyone. Not to people please. For ME. This habit informs many other positives in my life. It makes me cherish and guard my Sundays. It makes me chose healthy, locally-sourced foods. Cooking gives me flow, and this makes me appreciate what makes me unique in the kitchen. In short, it keeps me healthy. And, health is wealth, as Andy Warhol used to say. I just watched the 6 part series on Netflix. Learned a lot & was inspired to create more art, whatever that means. Or maybe just create more, period. The act of creating demands having command of your own attention span, your own mind. Anyway, enjoy this week’s meals, and let me know or drop a pic of what’s cooking in your kitchen in the comments below!

Carla is fasting this week so she’s speaking faster than usual! Hahaha. We discuss latest C19 stats, upcoming Ward 9 election, and how to wrap your head around change… Be willing to think outside the box!
I have been a fan of Ai Wei Wei for a long time and was thrilled to hear him speak in NYC years ago. I’ve caught his exhibits in Brooklyn, Prague, and online, and watched several of his documentaries. My favorite piece of art is his marble surveillance camera, because the incongruity of the marble brilliantly cements Big Brother in such an inconceivable, permanent way.
