Good advice from Brad R.: how to keep your libertarian website alive in the face of arbitrary decisions by domain registrars, cloud services, Google, and other “providers” who may not like your views. Poll (take it FWIW) says a majority of Americans, and even a plurality of black Americans, don’t want those Confederate statues torn down. Others, OTOH, want to begin with Lincoln, then tear down every monument to anyone who ever owned a slave. Bye-bye Washington and Jefferson. Bye-bye signers of the nation’s founding documents.

    John Lott gives that stats for what ought to be obvious: The U.S. does not have a murder problem. Certain counties have a murder problem. (And no doubt also certain neighborhoods within those counties, and certain individuals within those neighborhoods.) Ooh. That hurts: “I threw away $4.8 million in bitcoin. (H/T MtK) Fairly decent article about the knife-rights movement. Mixed blessing. Pitbull saved from death row is now a drug warrior. (Tip o’ hat to PT) Attempted murder survivor tells women to fight back via her Fight Like Girls program. Nobody can give a pat definition of happiness. At least…

  • I haven’t had much to say about the Comey flap. Far as I’m concerned, everybody in power in DC should be fired. But Jim Bovard says the FBI needs booting off its pedestal.
  • Ah yes, the ever-magical drug whisperers on the police force. (H/T jc2k in comments)
  • But alas, some stoners are as dumb as their reputation. Here’s a pair who, it seems, forgot they were no longer in Colorado (Tip o’ hat to ML)… 16 Comments
