  • Is it possible to reconcile Islam and libertarian ideals?    Some Muslims assert the following verse that they can be: “<span style=”color: #000000; font-family: Georgia; font-size: medium; line-height: 21.280000686645508px; text-align: justify;”>” target=”_blank”>O ye who believe! Obey Allah, and obey the Messenger, and those charged with authority among you. If ye differ in anything among yourselves, refer it to Allah and His Messenger, if ye do believe in Allah and the Last Day: That is best, and most suitable for final determination.”</span>   However, numerous verses cited by both anti-Islamists and Muslims who advocate Sharia suggest the contrary.

  • With companies like Airbnb and Homeaway making it easier to rent out a property or just a spare room, there is quite a lot of tax compliance issues arising.  I happen to be one in the crosshairs due to a county based tourism tax that applied to the hotel industry in the Orlando area — each county varies from what I understand thus far. I am still researching where I stand with it all,  and I have until May 4th to respond to the tax collector’s letter.  They don’t really give one much time, do they? I was wondering if any of you had similar issues or knew what the best course of action would be.  Or, if anyone knows a tax attorney for Orlando, that would be helpful. Here is a recent related link ambiguously discussing Airbnb’s attempt to resolve these issues:  http://www.tbo.com/news/politics/airbnb-starts-paying-florida-taxes-but-still-plays-by-different-rules-20160422/

  • Regarding this video from @akokesh: LiveLeak.com – The Restraint of Muslims (WARNING: GRAPHIC VIOLENCE) | Adam Kokesh I created a LL account for the first time to get involved in the discussions over there. Pretty interesting responses. Everyone there is assuming Adam is a Muslim or a Jew, or claiming he “forgot” 9/11 (when he referenced it in the video), or calling it “bullshit” without substantiation. I’m interested as to the Lme userbase’s response. Please watch the whole thing before commenting.
