Keene #3 Among Best Places In New Hampshire

Real Estate company Movoto ranked the 30 largest New Hampshire towns and cities in seven different criteria, and determined that Keene was the third best place in New Hampshire!
The criteria included: total amenities, quality of life, crime rate and tax rates, among other factors.

Movoto says, “The city is a bit of a haven to students, offering them an impressive 12 to 1 student-teacher ratio and some great summer temperatures to enjoy the time off of school. If people are past school-aged, that’s fine too, as the place boasts the fifth-best unemployment rate at only 4.3 percent.
As far as things to do, Keene doesn’t fall short. The number of amenities here rank sixth for that criterion.” (more…)

US Census worker spying on people living in Manchester

On Sunday April 6th, 2014 a US census worker approached the Rebel Love studios in Manchester NH.  She appeared at the door in order to gather information for the United States government on intimate details about the people that allegedly live at this location.  The following video is the interaction between myself and the agent of the state.

Agora Cab Runs on Bitcoin

Need a ride around New Hampshire? Agora Cab does a great job shuttling people around efficiently at far cheaper rates than more traditional cab services. While primarily based out of Manchester, Agora Cab frequently goes to and from Keene, and has been a lifeline for activists seeking to travel between the two. Also, Bitcoin is their preferred mode of payment, so if you’re looking to keep government money out of the transaction, you’re in luck.

When my car was out of commission because the state took my plates, I heavily relied on Agora Cab to get to and from work without completely depleting my financial reserves. It just goes to show the power of the community in voluntarily providing a valuable service that the state regulates; or, in my case, completely removes.

Free Keene Bloggers Start New Show

In April I’m starting the Rebel Love Show with fellow Free Keene blogger Robert Mathias.

Our goal is to showcase what’s going on here in the Free State in a friendly and casual manner. We really want to show what a great community we have here and highlight the can-do attitude of activists the state over with the ultimate goal of getting more people to move out.

The Rebel Love Show will air once a week, and will have a blog section with constant updates about happenings in the Free State community. Stay tuned at!
