Yet another stellar compliment from the supporters of the state! In a recent opinion piece at NH Labor News, author Matt Murray says this about the Free State Project:
The FSP has caused a significant impact on the state. While the FSP has not reached their 20,000 person goal, they already have a significant political presence in NH.
So true! What a wonderful compliment that acknowledges that despite being only at 5% of our goal of movers that the FSP is having “significant impact”! We’re winning and we’ve only just gotten started. If the state-worshippers do not like it now, just wait until thousands more arrive!
Here’s an editorial from the Washington Times supporting Robin Hooding:
New Hampshire residents take the “Live Free or Die” slogan on their license plates seriously. Municipal governments use every shady trick to squeeze revenue from the citizenry, but Hampshiremen are fighting back. The bureaucrats are in enough lather to shave their whiskers.
Good Samaritans in the city of Keene, styling themselves as “Robin Hood and his Merry Men,” are gallantly topping off parking meters before they expire, ensuring their neighbors will be spared an expensive and unnecessary ticket. Read more

Prince John, on behalf of his court jesters and their enforcement units, has penned a desperate response to the global outpouring of support received by Robin Hood and the Merry Men following the royalty’s frivolous lawsuit against us. Through a royal proclamation published in Saturday’s Sentinel, the Prince builds upon his deceitful characterization of individuals that he first perpetuated in a Keene Sentinel cover story over a month ago. Prince John continues to demonize those who participate in Robin Hooding, conflating our actions to ‘intimidation’ and ‘harassment’.
Considering the amount of self-righteous fluff sandwiching the Prince’s sentences, royalty seems to understand the extent to which they have dug themselves into a hole with a baseless lawsuit against six activists. Whatever the city’s true motives, we can trust in our leaders that this action had “nothing to do” with revenue. “The city has no interest in whether or not these or other individuals wish to pay the parking meters, and no claim about this practice is made in the legal action…This is definitely not about parking meter money. On behalf of your mayor, Kendall Lane, your elected city councilor, and your dedicated city employees, we are all honored to work for you and this wonderful community,” MacLean assures. Fancying himself an omniscient ruler of his subjects, the Prince even alleges that he can peer into the minds of those he sues. Weaving two different interpretations of the motives of the Merry Men, the Prince begins, Read more

There was a crackdown at the Smoke Down at the Liberty Bell in Philadelphia yesterday, May 18th, 2013, as police presence was at an all time high, and at an all time low for their violent thuggish behavior, when they forcefully arrested at least four peaceful liberty lovers. Much footage and controversy is coming forward about these arrests of Adam Kokesh, N.A. Poe, NJ Weedman, and Don Dezarn. The latest news indicates that Don Dezarn and the NJ Weedman were released immediately on the spot, with citations. Adam Kokesh was reported by one source to have been released, but other sources say he and N.A. Poe are now detained in the Philadelphia Federal Detention Center, to face arraignment and bail hearings on Monday May 20th. Here is some of the footage of the whole Smoke Down event, Don Dezarn gets released at 28:41 point in the video,

The Union Leader’s Meghan Pierce has filed a follow-up report about Robin Hooding. Big thanks to Meghan for starting the avalanche of press coverage about Robin Hooding. Her original article was the one that tipped off all the other media that followed. Here’s her second report:
KEENE — City officials said a lawsuit against a group filling parking meters before city parking enforcement officers can issue tickets is not about money, it’s about safety.
“This is not about revenue. This is not about the city losing any money,” City Manager John A. MacLean said Tuesday.
People plugging parking meters with coins, after all provides revenue to the city, he added.
“This has always been about safety and the contract we have with our employees,” he said. Read more
