Am Unrelated Side Project…

Thursday, October 20th, 2005

Nothing to do with third party politics, but I just wanted to share this with all of you…

As a bit of a side project, I’ve been working to help set up a website that encourages Congressman Ander Crenshaw to run for US Senate in Florida. Currently the only Republican in the race in [...]

Excellent Advertising Deal!

Wednesday, October 19th, 2005

Ok, I’m offering two spots in the regular sponsorship section at a very low price. That’s the advertising box that currently has the WeatherBug ad in it, scroll down and look on the right side of the page.

These are going for the insanely low price of $10 for THREE MONTHS. This offer [...]

Will Work for Cheap

Tuesday, October 18th, 2005

Amazingly, I’ve got some free time over the next few months… not a lot mind you, but some. So I’m looking to do a little bit of freelance work.

If you’re a candidate, party, or even a business looking for a bargain price on website design, hosting, and such… drop me a line.

I don’t want [...]

Good for a laugh…

Tuesday, October 11th, 2005

Nothing to do with third parties, or even politics… but if you haven’t seen this yet, it’s worth watching.

“…send us every penny you can afford…”

Tuesday, October 11th, 2005

I know some people are going to hammer me on this, but I don’t care. I think Michael Badnarik is probably a good guy, I think his campaign manager is probably a good guy… but I take issue with a number of the claims made in this recent fundraising email that I received. [...]

Anyone Awake Out There?

Tuesday, October 11th, 2005

Supposedly hard core conservatives are fuming mad at the President for nominating a semi-moderate like Miers to the Supreme Court. Numerous action groups and PACs have come out and voiced their displeasure, but I’ve yet to see anything from the Constitution Party or the American First Party.

What gives? It’s a good issue to [...]

The Iraq War

Thursday, September 29th, 2005

Heck, Pictures Too…

Tuesday, September 27th, 2005

Ok, I didn’t get much audio or video (yet) for the potential multimedia section of this site. So, I’ll extend it to photos as well.

Any images… campaign materials, election day photos, publicity stunts… whatever ya got.

…And Audio Too!

Monday, September 26th, 2005

In addition to the request for video, any audio you might have would be great…

Send it all to [email protected]

Same rules and usage options apply [...]

We Want Your Video!!

Monday, September 26th, 2005

Ok, here’s the deal… I’m considering doing a video clips section on the website.

I really have decided exactly what it will be, how it will work, or if I’ll even bother getting into it at all… but I have a few ideas floating around in my head.

What I would like from you guys is some [...]

Sunday, September 25th, 2005

Here we are!

I started this website about three months ago, and now we’ve hit the 15,000 visitor mark… pretty cool. Thanks for visiting and making this possible.

(Note: this only counts visitors to the front page. If someone found an article in the encyclopedia or a post on the message boards [...]

Kind of a slow week… anything on TV?

Saturday, September 24th, 2005

So, it’s been something of a slower week in third party politics… and most of the media’s attention is on hurricanes and the Supreme Court. However, we do have a new Fall TV season getting into full swing.

Anyone seen anything good? Perhaps the new Martha Stewart version of “The Apprentice” or the much-hyped [...]

Nothing for my money?

Saturday, September 10th, 2005

I decided to join the Libertarian Party a few weeks ago. Well, it was 44 days ago to be exact. Mostly I did it to get LP News and party mailings, just to keep tabs on things.

Since then, I’ve gotten one mailing from the LP asking for money because of the eminent [...]

Banner Contest!

Thursday, September 8th, 2005

Hey everyone, I’d like to put up some banners that people can use to link to this site. Unfortunately, I don’t have the time or the creative software to do it (I just bought a new computer and haven’t moved anything over yet).

So, I figured I would open it up to readers to submit [...]

Football Season is Upon Us…

Monday, September 5th, 2005

This site is fairly new and probably not ready to have an active football pool just yet… but I will probably try to start one next year on the message boards.

However, for this year, my other and slightly more established site (Conservative Pulse) is hosting a football pool… no money involved. It’s all for [...]

A few items of note…

Dirt Cheap Advertising…

Monday, August 29th, 2005

Howdy everyone!

This site is viewed almost 400 times by roughly 200 different visitors each day. While that’s not a huge amount of traffic, it’s respectable… and it’s HIGHLY targeted at a very specific group of people.

I’ve probably spent more than $250 on promotion and web hosting since this site started a mere 2 months [...]

The Mysterious City Zoning Amulet

Thursday, August 25th, 2005

I love The Onion…

After years spent poring over mysterious and arcane plat sheets and deciphering long-forgotten building codes, city councilmember Mike LaMere unearthed the mysterious City Zoning Amulet Friday.

A Sign That The Government Is Too Large?

Saturday, August 20th, 2005

Just purchase a copy of the “Code of Federal Regulations” from the US Government’s official subscriptions catalog.

It’s available for a mere $1,342.00, because after all it is 199 paperback books long…

Codification of the general and permanent rules published in the Federal Register by the Executive departments and agencies of the Federal government. Divided into 50 [...]

Want to Run for Senate?

Tuesday, August 16th, 2005

Without collecting 50,000 signatures… raising $10 million… or really getting off you ass at all? Well, you can will this Senate Simulation that I found it through a post on the TPW Message Boards. I’ve gotten slightly hooked on this game, and figured I’d share it with the rest of you.

LP Site Update

Friday, August 12th, 2005

The Libertarian Party’s main website received a bit of a welcome facelift today with the addition of a nice “Iraq Exit Strategy” logo on the left side.

Most notable, however, is the prominently pictured pitch for Liberty Pledge donations featuring the lovely Jessica Neno Wilson. Wilson is the Development Program Coordinator for the LP and [...]

2005 Races to Watch

Thursday, August 11th, 2005

I’d like to compile a list of some key races for third party and independent candidates for this year. So, this should not include any 2006 Congressional races. Post your suggestions in the comments and I’ll update as I go.

I’m not looking for just “there’s a candidate on the ballot” type races… but [...]
