Title: ha ha FOUND YOU!
Post by: outsidethebox on March 17, 2006, 09:14 AM NHFT
okay - so you guys have been trying to hide from me, but I FOUND YOU! HA! I am still trapped in MASS, been trying to get across the border for a coupla years - inching my way closer - only 11 miles from the border - yaayyy! At least close enough where we (me & daughter) can pop up to Keene and walk around civilization for awhile (after I park, get out, kiss the ground...). And...a few days ago...there IT was....that beautiful little piece of newsprint, calling out to me...the Keene Free Press....aaahhhh... Well, I secreted it carefully upon my person and snuck it back across the border into MA. I drove with extra caution - what a time this would be for the old heap to blow a fuse or some other minor infraction that could cause me to get pulled over by...you know...them...and I could get caught sneaking independent thought and talk of freedom into MA...EGADS!

Later on, I drew all the drapes in my bedroom, took it out and feasted my brain upon the guilty pleasures of intelligent, freedom loving thought! But wait!...did I hear a creak out on the porch, outside my bedrom window? I quickly doused the light and, with my heart beating wildly, hid the precious paper under my mattress....

Welcome, outsidethebox. In NH, you can read it openly.

I found *the* paper, KFP, in a bookstore next to (or close to) Timoleons. I may *know* some of the people here from the FSP groups, although I've been quiet for the past year.
I used to write for that wonderfully kooky small political paper, Massachusetts News, until the self-proclaimed "part-Libertarian" (  ::) publisher went off the deep-end. (motto: "We encourage independent thinking and opinions - unless they disagree with mine"..). My niche in the world was taunting and tormenting the Dept. of Social Services/CPS. aaahhh... what jolly fun that was..! sigh... the good old days...

Always ready to write! One of my observations over the past 2 -3 years of spending time in NH, looking for a house, etc., has been the creeping invasion of the MASS mentality that I have seen with a sinking heart. Of course, that's the rub with crazy people - they are never content to be free to be as crazy as they wish and live happily, their fulfillment only comes from inflicting their craziness upon others and spreading misery.

 I was thinking that perhaps I could make my angle a sort of the-view-from-south-of-the-border, that kind of thing... The loss of freedom and all of the issues that encompasses is national, but the contrast between MA and NH, so close geographically, so far philosophically/politically, makes a nice model to illustrate many libertarian concerns.

okay, I need more coffee if I am going to be required to think....
