The Mises forum is down; so, I guess I'm here now.

You should quit the Mises forums like a bad habit...

Why? I think libertarian popularity on the internet will decline because of it. It was a terrible decision.

Yeah, I'm sad to see them go. Thankfully, they subsidized the existence of my own forums!

Well it aint down for me...

I don't think the affect will be too dramatic since it's caused several other forums to pop up and it hasn't been that popular over the past year anyway...

When I went to it, it was down and CloudFlare said that there was no cached version of the site. I needed my fix Austro-libertarian threads; so, I came here. Now i'm hooked this crack.

After I stabilize my college schedule, I hope to liven this place up as I advertise it around some more ;)

Yeah, they're working. But who are they working for?

Here at LibertyHQ we treat the individual like a flower - a gentle being, able to realize a potential so beautiful that it can make the universe smile. We take them as a seed and nurture them, like a gentle April Arizona sprinkle of rain, softly blanketing the landscape, giving it life.

But have you noticed that you've never seen the president of the Mises Institute and Hitler in the same room at once? I'm not pointing fingers, I'm just saying...

Have you noticed how you'v never seen a picture of Wheylous in the same room as a puppy where Wheylous is not strangling the puppy?
Has anyone ever seen verified proof that Wheylous isn't Hitler and that he has a grudge against the president of the Mises institute?

You know you couldn't ban me Wheylous, we're too close. I'm your favorite mod on these forums and you know it.

You couldn't touch me I'm like the ying to your yang, the moon to your sun, the dark to your light. I am like Luigi and you Mario, the like Watson to Holmes, I am the stuffed tiger to your Calvin. You could never even consider hitting that button. We're like Frodo and Sam, Simon and Garfunkel, Hitler and Hermann Goering, Luke and Hon Solo, Eisenhower and MacArthur, Romulus and Remus, Sonic and Tails, Ben and Jerry, George Bush and Tony Blair, Spongebob and Patrick, Fred and George, peanut butter and jelly, Gilbert and Sullivan, Lewis and Clark... Hell, I'm the Costello to your Abbot.

I'd go so far as to say that I am your Samuelson, your Engels... Your Hayek...

So do it Wheylous DO IT. Throw it all way! All the years together, all the laughs, all the tears. Click on that "ban" button and send me away forever. It won't fill the sorrow in your heart, you'll just find your pain and suffering increased a thousand fold.

You'll be like Judas but more of a dick, Brutus but less good looking, like Benedict Arnold except less justified, like Anakin but without any cool powers. You'll be like Saruman without a wise beard, like Stalin except more tyrannical, like Alexander Hamilton except less well respected, like Lucifer except more evil.

If you ban me then all the libertarian cites on the internet will shun you, they will not look at you, they will not have you. You will be forced to wander the internet for your grave treachery until you finally find some dark socialist hole in some Marxist message board to crawl into. There you'll live out the miserable months and years, until finally that day you've had enough and you scroll up to that button and you click down on that mouse and press the "ban" button on yourself and you put yourself out of your own misery.

I'm not afraid of you Wheylous, you wouldn't dare touch a hair on my profile's head.

Wheylous, I knew you were a Tweek's Coffee spokesman all along! Caught you, red handed!

Thanks everyone for doing this! Seems like quite a lot of activity already. With my schedule, I doubt I can be very active here but I'm happy this is going on.

onward!

Now, guys, I know you won't believe me, but this is no joke. That is literally Jeffrey Tucker. I know you'll have a hard time believing me, but...

I'll believe it once Jeff Tucker writes an article in which he confirms this.
