It’s 4/20! We chat about the double standard between how citizens and police are treated when someone is fatally shot, what’s the latest on the secret list of bad cops (aka the Laurie’s List), the end of the governor’s mask mandate, and more! You can read more about why I’m excited about 4/20 HERE.
This week, we talk about, guess what? Yes, you know it. Also, more of that. Stuff. That Covers Your Mouth. Like censorship. Join us to learn more about how to accept what you cannot change about 2020, and how by applying empathy, we can help our friends and neighbors heal!
Watch on censor-proof Odysee!
If YOU haven’t watch this video, do eeeeeeet!!! Yes, it’s two years old, but it’s by far the most personally meaningful video I’ve made, touching on all my core issues: liberty > security; privacy and transparency; police accountability and resisting an authoritarian police state; vices are not crimes; and keeping NH awesome!
The issues are fresh af, and after 2020, I think civil libertarians agree, we WILL NOT give up our rights to scared, conditioned, passively obedient, non-thinking people. Sorry.
In this clip, near the end after I ask the genuine question, “When you watch The Matrix, who do you root for? Because in real life, too many people are rooting for Agent Smith!”, I talk about the evolution of signs I have personally made in my dozen+ years of liberty activism in the Free State of NH:
Don’t taze me, bro
Don’t tax me, bro
Don’t lock me down, bro
Don’t spy on me, bro
Don’t teargas me, bro
Now, sadly, I’ll have to add these:
DON’T LOCK ME DOWN, BIG BRO
DON’T VAXX ME, BIG BRO and…
YOU DON’T OWN MY PIE-HOLE, KAREN

This week, we welcome back Tammy, discuss how anti-innovation government is, how egregious the clampdown against Manchester-based crypto-leader LBRY is, how a local coach got fired for refusing to force his students to wear masks while exercising, and more!
This week on Manch Talk, I am joined by Right-to-Know open government activist, Laurie Ortolano from Nashua. Laurie takes us through an in-depth look at her case to make sure Nashua City Hall and the tax assessors office are functioning properly in an open, accessible, accountable and responsive way. (Psst: Guess what? They’re not, and she and other activists have been arrested to prove it!) (Double psst: What do you call it when the Mayor in a town gets special tax treatment?)
Did you know in NH public schools since 1994:
# Teachers has INCREASED by 23%
All other staff has INCREASED by 80%
Spending per pupil has INCREASED 66%
And yet… enrollment is DOWN 9%???
The public school sector is straight-up LYING TO YOU. The pupil to staff ratio is now 10:1. Support school choice… it’s the only way to break the education monopoly to ensure each Granite Stater child gets the education they choose at a price point taxpayers can afford!

In honor of Sunshine Week, this Sunday, the Union Leader printed the entire redacted Laurie’s List to show Granite Staters the shocking number cops with “sustained findings of misconduct” being hidden from public view. We discuss your Constitutionally-protected Right-to-Know, recent court successes, and suspicious rollbacks being attempted at the State House. Tune in to learn more!
This week, we discuss the novel concept of self-ownership, whether the necessary systemic reform of government is possible, the wind down of Covid, and more!
From rocket ships to political gamesmanship, this week on Manch Talk, we discuss the brilliance of Elon Musk, how Democrats’ quorum games in Bedford last week backfired big time, upcoming bills to address election fraud, and more! Support platforms that support freedom of speech, watch on Odysee.
Retaliatory Arrest for Nashua Right-to-Know Activist, and Is Twelve Feet Enough, Or Will They Need the Actual Mile? (Manch Talk 02/23/21)
