      I know you don't have to be a genius to get rich, but Thiel seems to prove that you don't even have to be mentally balanced.

      Maybe he should reread "The Lord of the Flies".

      Sea-steading is an idea that's been around for a while. I've posted numerous links to these ideas before.

      Ron Montomery's head is about to explode. A super-liberal defends the fact that Paul is being completely ignored by the media:

      KABOOM!!

      There's no denying it: the media IS ignoring the man. The reason? They want to steal your money and bribe the congressmen to get it.

        The GOP elite is also ignoring him. Probably for the same reason. They just want him to go away.

        Unsurprisingly, the Tea Party is not rallying behind Paul, even though ostensibly they're all about reduced government, greater liberty, etc. That's because they're just an angrier version of the socially-conservative GOP, not the fiscal conservatives they're masquerading to be.

    An interesting experiment, but why are they talking about "looser building codes" and "few restrictions on weapons"?  Shouldn't there be no building codes and no restrictions on weapons?

    Evan?

      Just as you must crawl before you walk, you must be a bit eccentric before going totally batsh** crazy.

    Ron, I understand the humor here, but is it really necessary to single out one person just because he happens to be a supporter of a particular candidate.
    I am far from being a libertarian, but I actually wouldnt mind living on one of these things (in theory, that is). Of coure, I would have to get married first and be kind of stringent about who comes along with. Of course we would have to look ahead about fifty years to anticipate population increases. Then, eventually things there would probably be much like they are here.

      I don't think you understand the nature of my back and forth's with Evan.  He will predictably reply with, "quick Ron, steal someone else's money and build your own Utopia!!"

      All in good fun
