"...how I choose to express or represent my opinions, last time I checked, is strictly of my own concern. When acting in my capacity as the Comm Dir for the LPCC, I use professional language suitable for the situation, because I am representing the party. If I choose to use that language on my website or my social media network, to promote myself or my creative projects/business interests, then I realize the possibility of turning off a segment of the people that promotion is reaching. That is a chance I take as a businessperson. Freedom is an F word, also, even when it applies to speech, sir."
Tune in tomorrow night, as I will be appearing around 9:20 on Miami's The Andrew Powell Show. Much thanks to Andrew for reaching out and getting this interview set up. While the campaign is working on getting qualified in more states, we are also getting ready to knuckle down and get more interviews and media coverage over the next few months.
Typical. Very typical. It is not like I attempt to call of work that often, because A) I have a work ethic, even when it's shitty job such as the one I have, and B) who can afford to? So, anyhow my attempt at a call-in turned into a half-day, because I'm a sucker, a later trip to give a co-worker a ride to work due to car trouble, because I'm a nice guy, and the revelation of more unrealistic nonsense from the higher ups on the chain, because as aforementioned, I have a shitty job.
At least I'm civic-minded. This has been brewing for a week or so, but with more formal contact between the LPCC Chair, Kelley Curran, and Susan Popp, Clark County Clerk, I figured I might as well share the news.
Now, I'm just operating on assumptions here, but I think myself, along with the Libertarian Party of Clark County and the Clark County Tea Party Patriots, have made some people nervous. Too many questions being asked the Town Council didn't want asked, and not enough satisfactory answers to go around. And they are getting scared about lil ole me entering the race? Not at all. They are getting scared that three Libertarians candidates were lining up, and the square dancing that went down at the Rally for Old Clarksville drove that point home.
My electoral history speaks for itself: 2% (2004), 2% (2006), 4% (2007), and 1.2% (2011). Obviously a reason for the mainstream parties (whichever one is behind this) to sweat. Stay tuned. There will obviously be more to come...
Not really a lot of explanation needed here. If not for a body camera, this would be simply be another dead offender that had it coming. Good for Cincinnati for getting to the bottom of things quickly, handing down an indictment, and addressing the situation and offering the solutions they have in motion to prevent future incidents like this. Even better for Cincinnati that the city stayed vigilant for answers and justice, not simply angry and rioting.
While over the past few weeks, I have taken a little bit of heat on Twitter for my stance on the police, I will maintain here just as I have there that I am not anti-police, I am anti-bad police. There is an obvious world of difference between the two, and a badge should not have the ability to hypnotize people into backing murder and calling it law and order.
