Done. Looks like a sweet app.

Try #bugski.

The hivemind kills me. Especially in subs like /r/politics, where people will take your head off if you aren't a big government, Obama loving liberal - and there is nothing wrong with being a big government, Obama loving liberal, and I love to debate with those people. Not so much when they scream at me for my political alignment.

The first two letters of my first, middle and last names backwards.

So I think I walk the line between a straight up American Constitutionalist, and a very liberty oriented Libertarian (definitely Ancap leaning in some of my opinions).

I think I'm this way because of the people I hang out with. One dude is an ancap, and the rest are hardline constitutionalist or states rights Libertarians. It is my opinion that the only good government is small government, and I think shit like Homeowner's Associations, Property Tax, Income Tax, etc, are pretty dumb. I understand the government needs to pay for shit, so I can see why we have stuff like Income Tax, but I wouldn't have much of a problem of taxing sales more to abolish a property tax. It is your land that you pay for, why do you need to subscribe to some older folks who get together on some Monday night to talk about why the Johnson's want to build a deck in their backyard. Yeah, you can choose to not live in a HA neighborhood, and that is exactly what I will do.

Property tax... like I said, I get why, but it IS your land, why pay the government for it.

I think facebook already is in a downward spiral.

I'm 16, and most of us tend to use stuff like Twitter, Instagram, Snapchat, or Vine rather than facebook, which is probably why you see Facebook acquiring stuff like Instagram, Snapchat, and Vine.

I'm coming from reddit myself, and I'm really enjoying the format of Hubski, especially the lack of obvious centralization. One thing I would like, however, is a way to see a "score" on your posts, but that's not a huge deal to me to be completely honest.
