My probation officer just told me someone got found not guilty in NH Fed court this week. She said it's the first time she's ever heard about that happening in her fifteen year career. She says 98% take plea deals and the rest get found guilty.

It seems like everyone knows that certain drugs were criminalized because of bigoted politicians, but did you know that drivers licenses stem from this as well? In fact there were no written or road tests in some states as late as the 1960s.

In 1964 it cost as little as ~$1800 (2023 dollars accounting for the money printing aka inflation) to send your kid to school. In Croydon, NH today the government spends ~$28,000 per pupil. 15 times as much and the results are far far worse. Maybe it's time to end government schooling and open the market up to competition. That is it could cost as little as $150 / month per kid. That is about $10 a school day or $150 / month spread over a year.

How I become a paid #Inkscape developer in 2022:

youtu.be/PSLs46utyDo

This week's video is the 2022 review where I dig into some of the numbers for how much I earned doing #freesoftware / #opensource as an indepedant user-focused #developer. This is both transparency for the people that #fund me, and a way to see what it's possible to do even without any large business backing in the #foss world.

Big thanks to everyone who helped make this happen in 2022! ❤️

This tool, who restricts replies, took the time to black out @LPNH from his image where he obliged LPNH with the attention he complains they want. Are libertarians in NH worthy of statist attention? This state rep thinks so. He's obsessed with @FreeStateNH

Even in the years where the state reps prohibited state reps from carrying weapons in Reps Hall, they still could not prohibit average people from carrying them! Now state reps are able to carry again under house rules:
