It’s The Disability, Stupid
Another hectic week here…well, what passes for hectic for me these days.
I’m still racking my brain for ways to increase the blog’s visibility, contacting those people in the liberty community who run a YouTube channel with a large audience to get those donations rolling again. I’ve sure got a great foundation built already thanks to Tatiana Moroz, Nick Allison and Adam House with the endorsement videos they were kind enough to produce for me. Now all that’s wanted is some catalyzing act to propel it into the next stage of awareness where the donations are consistent enough to finish this project. What it’ll be I can’t say, but it will be a welcome development from the fits and starts that characterize any fundraising venture like this one.
In line with that, I was delighted on Thursday evening when Adam House invited me to co-host the Combat Veterans for Ron Paul ‘Language of Liberty’ broadcast for a time, always a fun exercise but doubly so in this case because their featured guest was Dr. Walter Block, a well known economist, writer and professor of economics at Loyola University in New Orleans. I’ve enjoyed his work for a long time and it was a real pleasure to speak with him, however briefly. Another guest who appeared on the show, William Coley, was a new name for me, but I found his talk inspiring. Mr. Coley is a student, a convert to the Muslim faith and an activist in that community to support it along with freedom oriented candidates like Ron Paul and others. Have a listen here if you’re inclined. I had a lot of fun, even though I’m still new at this sort of thing…George Noory won’t have to worry about any competition from me any time soon!
I’ve got another new article for the American Daily Herald ready for publication and expect to see it in the next day or two, plus the warm weather activities I’ve mentioned before like airsoft target shooting and small radio control aircraft flying I enjoy.
I hate to admit it, but all of these are really pushing my limits, between the fatigue, insomnia and nuttiness of my ongoing imprisonment here, I’m about tapped out. Once this blog’s fundraising mission succeeds, it’ll take a lot of that pressure off; it does take up far too much of my attention and energy at this point…but it’s heartening to know that I’ll be able to do the other things I’ve mentioned more effectively at that point. Still, I’m reminded daily of my limits when I just hit the wall and can’t do one more thing, maddening since none are particularly taxing for a healthy person but with these afflictions that produce fatigue and other cognitive effects like my multiple sclerosis you’re going to see those limits that just can’t be ignored. If that’s a difficult concept to understand for healthy people, you might want to have a look at my earlier entry discussing Christine Miserandino and her ‘Spoon Theory’ that’s still the best explanation of the energy limitations we face.
As always, I hope you’ll take a moment to leave a donation if you’ve enjoyed your visit…don’t forget, we’re under some time pressure to complete the goal here to turn me loose in time to join my friends in the Combat Veterans for Ron Paul in their march on the RNC in August!
