Tomorrow (Saturday 11/8) at 1pm at the Putnam Science Center of Keene State College, you’ll be able to hear from representatives of Liberty in North Korea presenting about the jangmadang, the illegal marketplace that is now tolerated to some extent by the North Korean regime. The LINK folks are currently on a nationwide tour and have also visited Keene High School this week with a presentation.
Come on out at 1pm Saturday – here’s a facebook event you can join and share.
Many in the Keene area have read the Sentinel article about local businesses that are accepting bitcoin. Others may have heard about it from word of mouth or other media. Bitcoin is becoming a worldwide phenomenon, and the word is getting out. However it can seem confusing at-a-distance. What is this internet money and how do you get some?
The easiest way is in-person, from either another human, or in this case, a Bitcoin Vending Machine (BVM).
101 Deals Thrift Store just opened its doors on Monday at 661 Marlboro St. (NH RT-101) in Keene and on their first day of business, the Skyhook BVM was present, offering to sell bitcoin to anyone with a bitcoin wallet (usually on their smartphone).
If you don’t have a bitcoin wallet yet, there are a couple of very popular ones you can download for your favorite phone operating system: Blockchain or Mycelium. Once you have your wallet installed, drop into 101 Deals (seven-days-a-week!) with some cash and try out the Bitcoin Vending Machine.You can keep your bitcoin, or when the transaction is confirmed in the Bitcoin network, you can use some of it to buy something you want in the store, since 101 Deals accepts bitcoin for purchases, just as do several other local businesses including Corner News, The Farm Concessions, Moda Suo Hair Salon, Carroll Garden Center in Marlboro, and Stone Farm in Fitzwilliam!
The 101 Deals BVM is the only one in the region, according to CoinATMRadar.com. What an exciting development for the future of decentralized money in the Monadnock region! To learn more about Bitcoin, visit WeUseCoins.com or drop in to meet the local bitcoin community on the Keene Bitcoin Network facebook group.
Dr. Darren Tapp of NeoCash Radio stops by the Rebel Love Studios and drops some bitcoin bombs. Topics discussed include how Darren first became interested in bitcoin, personal experiences transferring money with and with out bitcoin, and the preferred use of bitcoin among the liberty community here in the Shire. Every Rebel Love Show episode is available at RebelLoveShow.com Show archives are also available on itunes, stitcher, and youtube.
Recorded July 9 2014. Electoral politics activist Matt Ciepielowski talks about the Ron Paul campaign and moving to New Hampshire to reduce the size and scope of government from within.
Yesterday, Governor Maggie Hassan signed into law a 22% increase on the New Hampshire gas tax, with a bridge construction site near Windham as a backdrop (apparently, there’s some unwritten rule that the state’s theft must be justified by roads).
This would have been another staged press conference victory, if not for a protest staged by the state chapter of Americans for Prosperity. Over a half-dozen Free Stater activists joined with AFP to ruin Hassan’s perfect little photo op. The protest gathered considerable media attention, and got Free Keene blogger Rich Paul prominently featured by the Union Leader.
Most of the battle is just showing up. Some of the most egregious offenses of the state take place because of no visible objection. Just being present to show that the people don’t consent to government coercion is all it takes to derail the illusion of consensus and change hearts and minds.
