I concur.  The weather is typically drier in August, as well.

I asked a few folks around town what they thought, and so far, no one has said they think it would be a bad idea.  A few think it is a good idea, and a few don't really care which date is used, as long as BP happens.

Tom was just here and he agrees that August 10 is the best.
He also requests that you re-activate his account here.
Could you also do Jean Alexander's account?

To clarify, Sunday August 10, 2014 will be the LAST day of Burning Porc, yes?

Aug 10th is Sunday, so that being the last day makes sense.

 I was away for work... we were feeling bad about not being able to make it to Grafton to visit with our friends. Hope everyone had a good time.

Being that we have friends and a connection to Grafton, building houses for Porcs, spending time with people we have connected with over the years... makes this post difficult.

We just found out who the featured speaker was, and I must say I'm disappointed and am concerned about the judgement of that decision.

Many folks seem to feel the gooberment is the biggest threat we face. At times people have gotten worked up about the threat of alphabet soup agency attack.

Infiltration and disruption from within is a more likely scenario... We have had dividers and problem people orbiting the NH freedom movement before. Several times I was in the position of warning people, many times having to defend and prove to their satisfaction the danger I sensed. Pretty much to a person my concerns proved out.

From Powerchuter to the latest idiot to be involved, I believe the worst enemy is likely to be the Cantwells and other hate filled attention whores who claim to be our fellow travelers. Libertarians are often a myopic bunch and can get caught up in one issue arguments like "freedom of expression" and ignore the whole story. Like drunken rages, fist fights, bullying of women, etc. which old Chris is guilty of. His landlord waving a shotgun around at PorcFest and threatening people who called him on his unsafe behavior. Don't be surprised when the gun rubbers see violence as the answer to most problems. Focusing on the abuses and tactics of our overlords, can lead to us taking on those same traits.

Ultimately the psychology that is most often behind anger is fear. Letting go of as much of that fear as possible makes a person less angry and ultimately leads to being able to persuade others that you are on a better path. Perhaps, then, they will join us as well.

The bottom line is I hope it is a matter of being unaware rather than a lack of wisdom. We don't want anything that further distances families like mine from participating.
