Pinned toot

I like long walks on the beach and cuddling by a fire. Wait... this isn't that kind of introduction, is it?

Libertarian (small l) from MI, checking in. I've been on Mastodon for a year now and even ran my own instance, muhroads.party (defunct). I'm here to help balance out the extreme leftist lean that the fediverse seems to have.

I'm confused why the stock market continues to ignore everything about the economy and is just doing its own thing. Oh, wait, it's 2020... this makes sense.

I think Kenosha is fueling this week's bump in sporting goods stocks (SWBI, SPWH, VSTO, AOUT, RGR, OLN);

Fuck the police and those that want to grant them a blank check on their actions.

If anyone is interested in playing with the stock market and doesn't have Robinhood... join and get us both a free stock. #stocks #stockmarket join.robinhood.com/jacobb11936

So is there a reason why I can't do any sort of verification on here? I know my syntax is right, so this should verify my self-link.

I'm not going to lie: I'm starting to become welcoming of the coming apocalypse. Everybody's doing their best to bring on the end of the world. I might as well embrace it.

Yeah... if you want us libertarians to join you in your fight, maybe you should stop advocating for more power and influence being given to the same government you're fighting? Especially when you want that increased power to attack us libertarians.

I've been blissfully unaware of the ammo shortage all of this has caused. I've been sitting on a nice ammo cache, but now that the girlfriend got a gun, I'm seeing just how destitute it is out there especially for 9mm. #2A

I'm finally getting to go shooting today. The first time I'll actually get to try out my P320. I shouldn't let a year go by in between range days.

Seeing as people are still all cool with hitting fascists, I'd like to point out that they have just as much of a protected right to their speech as anyone else in America. They're demonstrably wrong, but they still have a protected right to speech.

Shame them; don't hit them. 🤷‍♂️

Getting IP addresses off blacklists is awfully annoying. Using mxtoolbox.com, I'm down to 3 blacklists from their database of lists. One should drop off tomorrow (UCEPROTECT-Level 1), and I'll try to whitelist the IP to take care of the second (UCEPROTECT-Level 2), and I have a ticket out for the 3rd (SORBS).

See, annoying.

Like wind turbine syndrome, I think many of the adverse physical reactions people are having to wearing masks is just psychologically-based. The science is if you just switch out disposable masks or wash reusable masks on a consistent basis, you're not going to get sick.

The same reasons why masks don't help you if you're not sick is the same reason why you're not going to lack oxygen.

I wonder if people know that you can support wearing masks while being against mask mandates. This nuanced position is completely lost on the left and right it appears.

I'm a little irritated that every time I restart my VPS from Hostwinds, the hostname changes back to their default. I should probably put in a ticket or ask for guidance.

I wish there was an easier way to migrate away from an email address than having to log into each individual website and changing the email address. I'm sure that I'm missing others... I probably should have decided to do this before I only had a few days left to renew my domain.

Today is a day where I'm going to need a shitload of coffee, I think. At least, it's Friday.

Well, now I'm following myself all over the fediverse. That's nifty.

Liberdon

Liberdon is a Mastodon instance for libertarians, ancaps, anarchists, voluntaryists, agorists, etc to sound off without fear of reprisal from jack or zuck. It was created in the wake of the Great Twitter Cullings of 2018, when a number of prominent libertarian accounts were suspended or banned.
