July 5, 2016 Jurors Informed

A fresh new pool of jurors arrived at the Belknap Superior Court on Tuesday July 5th. About 70 received information that the court will not provide but is essential to serving as a juror.

Jurors with time to read some good information.
Jurors with time to read some good information.

A couple of interesting incidents occurred. One gentleman popped open the pamphlet to get an idea of what was inside, he knew what he was looking for and said, ‘oh yeah, I’ll be out soon; they won’t let me on a jury!’ I hope he gets to be foreman. Another older man was leaving as jurors were still arriving, so I asked him why he was leaving. He was dismissed from jury duty because he was over 70 years old. Hmmm, I know judges have a mandatory retirement at 70, I never knew there was a limit for a juror. Maybe we need this for the legislature also?

It was a nice day, only 2 people were not interested in taking a flyer. Well, 3 if I count attorney Sisti, but his hands were full. I should have gotten a picture of his ‘briefcases’, each one was the size of a file box.

We will be back out on July 18th at 9:00 to see if we missed anyone. I suppose a few may have called in their regrets for missing the first day.

LRP Beach Day 2016

There are plenty of hiking trails, two sandy beaches and plenty of space for your little ones and your doggies. There are no fees for the park or parking.

This event is our annual charity fund-raiser for the Center Harbor Food Pantry.  Ed setting upFor a $20 donation, you are giving  the food pantry a way of feeding needy families from all over the lakes region. With that donation you’ll get yourself a fat burger, hotdog, chips and a drink.  You’ll also get to taste Representative Glen Aldrich’s World Famous Potato Salad, which is worth the price of admission in itself.  If you have kids no worries, they’re eating for free.  We welcome dietary changes, and can work to accommodate you, just contact us.  If you prefer to bring your own food, we simply ask that you provide the suggested donation of $10 so we can help out the Center Harbor Food Pantry.

Summer Jury Outreach

Jury Information“If the jury feels that the law under which the defendant is accused is unjust … or for any reason which appeals to their logic or passion, the jury has the power to acquit, and the courts must abide by that decision.”

A new jury pool will be starting their service on July 5. What better time than the day after Independence Day to inform these new jurors of their rights.

We will greet them at the Belknap Superior Court in Laconia at 8:30 with a nice pamphlet loaded with information that the court will not provide to them.

The jury pool is scheduled to return on July 18 at 9:30, and August 1 at 9:30. We will start a half hour before the jurors are scheduled to arrive. At times the jury is dismissed from the secondary dated in the event that trials are postponed. Call the court (1-855-212-1234) to check on the status prior to coming out on July 18 and August 1.

May Activities

Spring is here (for real) and it’s time to hit the street. We’ll be doing our second litter pickup, on Sunday the 15th of May. We will start with breakfast at Shooter’s Tavern at 8:00 then hit the road. This will be a pretty quick clean up as we got things looking good last month.

JuryInformationsmallOn Monday May 16 at 8:30 a few of us will be at the Belknap Superior Court to hand out information to jurors. Real crimes have real victims. Unfortunately we have many statutes on the books which prohibit people from mutually consensual activities. In these cases jurors should know they are within their rights to vote their conscience.

Remember that the following Saturday, May 21, is our monthly meeting.  As always, if you’re looking for all things liberty related in New Hampshire check out this calendar.

Spring Cleaning

Spring is here and it’s time to hit the street. We’ll be doing our first litter pickup, on Sunday the 10th. We will start with breakfast at Shooter’s Tavern at 8:00 then hit the road. We are usually done within a couple of hours.

Remember that the following Saturday, April 16, is our monthly meeting and LibertySpot 2016! As always, if you’re looking for all things liberty related in New Hampshire check out this calendar.

LibertySpot 2016

Have you ever thought about what it would be like to invite the entire NH liberty movement to Funspot – the largest arcade in the world – and play video games, indoor mini golf, bowl, darts, pool, bingo, drink, eat and have fun for hours? It was a blast! LibertySpot 2015 was a great success, and we’re doing it again.

Mark your calendar April 16, 2016! We’ll start with our regular Lakes Region Porcupines meeting at the New Hong Kong Buffet at noon and then move on to Funspot from 2:00 until 11:45!

It turns out, the founder/owner of Funspot, 85-year old Bob Lawton, is a big fan of liberty and his favorite book is Ayn Rand’s Atlas Shrugged! When Funspot turned on their new digital sign in the 1980’s, the first message Bob put on it was “Who is John Galt?” Did you know Bob was the State Rep who sponsored the bill to put “Live Free or Die” on our license plates?

To make this day even more epic, everybody’s encouraged to wear their favorite liberty gear! Wear an FSP tshirt, an NHLA polo, a Mises bracelet, a Ron Paul hat, a gun rights tshirt, whatever you want! You’ll be surrounded by fans of liberty!

Bingo starts at 6:45pm in the building next door to Funspot. The D.A. Long Tavern, the bar inside Funspot, opens at 1pm on Saturday (only ages 21 and up can enter the Tavern and drinks must stay in the Tavern).

With a big space and lots going on, let’s gather out at the marquee for a group photo hourly from 3:00 to 6:00. Which do you prefer, ‘Who is John Galt?’, or ‘A government big enough to give you everything you want…’?

Come out and have fun with other NH liberty activists! Join and share our event! See ya there!

Thank you Vince Perfetto (101 Reasons Film) for creating a great day and getting the ball rolling in 2015!

Statehouse Activism

Do you want to hold signs for liberty candidates?
Do you want to put out flyers for liberty candidates?
Do you want to vote for marijuana the year decrim finally passes?
Do you want to fill a seat that would otherwise be occupied by an anti-liberty rep?
Do you want to limit government’s influence in your life with the simple push of a button?
Do you want to be a wrench in the works?

Fall

It’s always beautiful in the lakes region but fall is rather colorful. It seems like you can get a calendar shot from anywhere you go in the area these days. These pictures are from Wolfeboro on October 26 shot with a simple ‘point and shoot’ camera.

Our November meeting will be on the 21st.

We will be assisting Shire Sharing to deliver Thanksgiving meals on Sunday the 22nd. Send them a donation if you can or join us to help with deliveries.

Lastly, a note for those who want to stay in touch without Facebooking, we have a group on Yahoo for e-mail communications: LakesRegionPorcupines@yahoogroups.com.
