The biggest surprise was my friend John Jay Myers, who is running for Dallas City Council. (Here he is sounding off at an earlier meeting, objecting to Dallas building a half -billion dollar hotel.)
I already knew John to be a very smart man, but had no idea he could work a crowd like he did this afternoon. As soon as the YouTube of this event goes up, I'll post it here. Plus, I'll put up other pictures as quickly as people send them to me.
Here's a hypothetical question that I spent a lot of time pondering while listening to other speakers and waving my Tarrant County Libertarian sign in front of The Temple Of Baal.
Assume someone is a counterfeiter, and a very good one. No one can tell the difference between this counterfeiter's product and the paper money rolling off the presses at the Fort Worth Bureau Of Engraving And Printing. Let's assume that there is no difference other than point of origin.
Why is it illegal for the counterfeiter to print and spend his homemade money? Who is harmed by it? As long as it can't be distinguished from the genuine article and is still accepted by merchants, doesn't it serve the same purpose?
Couldn't you even say that it stimulates the economy?
