Silver Circle On The Big Screen THIS Wed (Tomorrow!) At 6:15pm and 8:15pm Just 39 Tickets Remaining

For those of you middle Tennessee residents who read THL, I just wanted to let you know that Silver Circle will be on the big screen tomorrow, Wed 26th right here in Nashville.

I spent a lot of time last year and the year before writing for Silver Circle's blog, The Silver Underground, and built a close relationship with these awesome libertarian story-tellers. (I also came up with the new name for their Boston animation studio, Two Lanterns Media.)

Movie Trailer:



Event Details:

The Music City will be switching gears on June 26th as Silver Circle premieres in its first Nashville screening! The hip and newly-renovated Filming Station will be hosting this film event consisting of two showtimes!

Join us at 501 8th Ave., South!

BUY YOUR TIX TODAY and support the End the Fed message in the strong and vibrant liberty community of Nashville. Tickets are $11 for both the 6:15 and 8:15 showtimes. The show will start promptly at said times, so make sure to get there on time!

We'll have comic books, silver, and other End the Fed merch for sale after the screenings. We're also amidst planning an awesome after party at Mafiaosza's! http://www.mafiaozas.com/

About Silver Circle:

It's 2019. The dollar is dead. The Federal Reserve brutally clings to the power it has gathered for more than a hundred years. Zoe Taylor stands in their way, with a cunning plan, a scrappy group of Rebels, an insider's help, and a competing currency made of pure silver. Do she and the Rebels have what it takes to destroy the tyrannical Fed?


You can buy your tickets online here.

As of this blog posting, there are just 39 left!

Video: NSA Wiretapping Public Service Announcement from "The Whitest Kids You Know"

"Americans have become outraged and concerned about their rights to privacy. But along with that concern comes a feeling of hopelessness. I mean, what can we do? Vote in new leaders? Well, the problem is, that during an election, each candidate pretends to not be an asshole."



#LibertyIsRising: Ben Swann Needs Your Help To Bring The rEVOLution To Journalism

Many of you reading this money-bombed for Ron. Many of you money-bombed for Rand. Now the movement you helped create has an opportunity not just to establish a foothold in the media, but to revolutionize media as we know it by helping Ben Swann (yes, that awesome Reality Check guy from Cincinnati) become an established and noteworthy journalist outside of the corporate-funded noise machine using a new economic model: crowd funding:



Swann has already raised over $100,000 on his Kickstarter page, but needs your help to reach his goal. What makes this even better than the electoral money bombs you may have contributed to in the past is that your contributions are rewarded with prizes, so the more you give, the more you-- personally, in a direct and tangible way-- get.

Shia LaBeouf tried to warn everyone about government spying 5 years ago (Super Creepy Video)

In this pretty shocking clip from The Tonight Show With Jay Leno, dated, September 16, 2008, the actor reveals that an FBI consultant for an action film told LaBeouf that the government logs calls and proved it by retrieving and playing the audio of a phone call LaBeouf had made two years earlier!



Think he was telling the truth?

My Thoughts On The Florida Woman Who Filmed Herself Berating Dunkin Donuts Workers

This has been making its rounds for the past couple days. In a nutshell: This woman came in and hysterically berated the workers over a forgotten receipt. It's just awful to watch. I'm not even going to embed the video, but you can watch it if you'd like by following the link. Warning: You'll feel a deep, burning shame as you watch.

Here's the thought I shared with a friend on this:

No one really cares that much about a receipt. She's clearly got deep anger issues. I'd bet money they have something to do with her parents. My sense is that these kinds of displays speak volumes about how people behaved in the home during a person's childhood. Parents, your boorishness towards your children is unleashing a bunch of angry, petty, depressed, and desperate people on the rest of the world. Stop it. Please just stop it. (I'd give ten to one odds she was spanked, put down, and bullied in the home as a child.)

Happy 78th Birthday, Alcoholics Anonymous!

Happy 78th birthday, Alcoholics Anonymous.

No one in AA can tell another person or group what to do. Each group is completely autonomous. You can start a group with no permission needed. AA is an organization with millions of members that runs on anarchist principles. Seriously.

And it has helped millions to get clean and sober and stay that way.

-Bob Morris

#MusicMonday In Honor of The NSA - Every Breath You Take by: The Police

"O can't you see
You belong to me?"






"Every Breath You Take" Lyrics

Every breath you take
Every move you make
Every bond you break
Every step you take
I'll be watching you

Every single day
Every word you say
Every game you play
Every night you stay
I'll be watching you

O can't you see
You belong to me
How my poor heart aches with every step you take

Every move you make
Every vow you break
Every smile you fake
Every claim you stake
I'll be watching you

Since you've gone I been lost without a trace
I dream at night I can only see your face
I look around but it's you I can't replace
I feel so cold and I long for your embrace
I keep crying baby, baby please

Every move you make
Every vow you break
Every smile you fake
Every claim you stake
I'll be watching you
