Liberty Net: August 4, 2012

by Kevin Strom, WB4AIO

AFTER SEVERAL WEEKS of absence due to a power supply failure and subsequent parts requisition and repair, N2IRJ was finally able to rejoin the Liberty Net this week. Welcome back, Marty! Special thanks to Al, N2SAG, for his extra effort in keeping the conversation lively and on a high level despite the absence of Marty and the phone patch callers.

Here’s a small sampling the many subjects brought up during this week’s Liberty Net:

• Up until recently, solar energy has required a prohibitively high investment. But subsidies have brought the costs down, and the payback time is now much shorter. Whether we approve of subsidies or not, it is a fact that those who take the plunge also greatly increase their independence. This week WD8PAV was the first high-power check-in to the Liberty Net using power obtained entirely from solar panels. (38 minutes)

• Cass Sunstein, who advocated creating a sort of “Ministry of Truth” to censor the Internet and specifically to punish writers who questioned the official 9/11 narrative, is leaving his position with the Washington regime. His replacement has Soros connections. (1 hour 8 minutes)

Liberty Net: July 28, 2012

by Kevin Strom, WB4AIO

DESPITE SUMMERTIME STATIC at the highest levels we’ve seen this season, and despite the temporary loss of the N2IRJ phone patch (Marty is repairing his transceiver’s power supply as I type), the Liberty Net had numerous new check-ins and extremely interesting discussions this week.

Here’s a small selection from the many ideas brought forward during this week’s Liberty Net:

• Many people are saying that being forced to choose between Mitt Rob-me and Fetchit is a matter of picking the lesser of two evils. But is it really better to pick the “less evil” and hope that a smaller amount of damage will be done? Isn’t it better to let the more obvious evil reign so that no one will be lulled into complacency that “things are getting better” — and to ensure that more and more people will be radicalized and build an overwhelming consensus for revolution? (14 minutes)

• We have a system in which politicians are buying votes with stolen wealth and charging the bill to the future. The fact that we have a degraded electorate that can’t figure that out, and reject it, illustrates the total failure of one-man one-vote mass democracy, which isn’t what the founders intended anyway. (35 minutes)

Liberty Net: July 21, 2012

by Kevin Strom, WB4AIO

WE LIVE IN A STRANGE country where you need to prove your identity and origin twenty times over to get a driver’s license — but not to be President; a country in which leaders and aspiring leaders fall all over themselves to promise to defend the eternal sanctity of Israel’s borders — but care not a whit for our own. But there are rational people who recognize the insanity for what it is, and speak out about it on amateur radio’s Liberty Net, which has been serving the public interest, convenience, and necessity since 1974.

Here are just a few of the ideas introduced for vigorous debate during this week’s session:

• In Germany and Switzerland, there’s a move to ban the barbaric Middle Eastern rite of circumcision. Will the law be directed only at one Middle Eastern religion, though, and exempt another? (13 minutes)

• Saying that “guns” killed people in that Colorado theatre is like saying that rolling pins and cast iron skillets commit domestic violence. In truth, if we had a more well-armed population, much individual and government violence and mischief against us would be eliminated — the bastards simply wouldn’t dare. (17 minutes)
