Nikki Darling, Michael W. Dean and young yak farmer Nick Hazelton (who is getting high school credit for being on the Feens!) wonder why “small government” people are often not consistent in understanding “there’s no such thing as half-free.”
Also, an extended discussion of the TV show The Wire.
Also, how to better plan your life with The Dean One-Page Plan.
Bitshares: Making government irrelevant since 2014. (Interview with Daniel Larimer) - Freedom Feens radio archive[ 1:19:19 | 54.3 MB ]Play Now | Play in Popup | Download
Michael W. Dean and Lousander G. Feen interview the brilliant and fun Daniel Larimer, inventor of Bitshares. The Central Scrutinizer is messing with Daniel’s Internets, but we do get a solid hour of Feeny goodness out of this chat. A good time is had by all. (Daniel will be back on the Feens Sunday May 18th at 1 PM eastern.)
After Daniel goes back to coding, MWD and Lousander yack about tyranny, liberty and riding the blockchain to the future.
Michael W. Dean has Bill Buppert filling in for Neema Vedadi today. Bill Buppert is a retired US Army officer (Captain). Bill knows more about US foreign policy than most people we know, and more than anyone they’ll let on mainstream TV.
Bill talks for 90 minutes about one question “Why is their unrest in the Middle East?” He also takes fascinating side-turns to answer the questions “How can we best support the troops?” and “How can we get America back to the Constitution, and what will that look like?”
Mike Vanderboegh (pronounced Van-der-bo – everything after the “O” is silent) is a controversial figure. He’s one of the granddaddies of the modern American militia movement, and founder of the Three Percent movement, who have been denounced by Bill Clinton on CNN. Mike Vanderboegh is a friend of the Oathkeepers and he is hated by the Southern Poverty Law Center. Mike Vanderboegh and David Codrea broke the story on the Gunwalker Scandal – Operation Fast and Furious. An LA Times reporter once called Mike “the Grey Eminence of the militia movement.”
The Feens agree with Mike on some stuff, disagree on some other stuff, and all in all it’s good radio.
The Feens talk with Mike for over an hour then talk about some other stuff, including “Is AA responsible for its members’ actions?” and “Should half the state of California be arrested for living an indolent lifestyle?”
Michael W. Dean and Neema Vedadi skip talking about politics (for the most part) and have a fascinating discussion where they basically have a conversation with themselves as youngsters talking to themselves now. They enjoy youth-skewing revelations of reaching the world from your bedroom, finding your place in the world, why lingerie is universally loved by men everywhere, and how this relates to the fact that the State is square.
