Might have been too busy to post. Not to busy to collect tabstuff. If I fail to credit sources it’s because I’ve forgotten where some of it came from. Sigh.
- “How to disappear without a trace.” Not in a good way, unfortunately …
- Quietly, with almost no notice even in the financial press, France has outlawed any mailing of currency, coins, or precious metals — a ban that appears about to spread to other parts of Europe. What a coincidence that big, government-approved
money launderersbanks and investors don’t use mail to ship their lootresources. For the most part, only peasants do. (H/T S.)
- Haha. Another embarrassment for Bloomy’s anti-gunners.
- And something much more than a mere embarrassment.
- Good phrase (right up there with “government supremacists”): Anti-liberty bigots. The supremacists and bigots hate having their own favorite pejoratives thrown back at them.
- How is it that people who make the laws and advocate for the laws (and who really ought to be familiar with how laws work) always seem to be the last ones to get that the laws will always be bent for nefarious purposes? (Obamacare again. Of course.)
- Um. Well, that’s … original. A tad Orwellian, but certainly an original way to address the dog-poop problem.
- The article’s good. But whoever wrote the headline ought to be kicked back to civics class. Hey, Washington Post: If it’s unconstitutional, it’s by definition not legal.
- No, Mike. You are not expendable. Inspiring, gutsy, creative, and possessed of a huge pair of brass ones, yes. But not expendable.
- Now the TSA … that’s expendable. In fact, it’s the very definition of expendable.
- You may be a terrorist if … you complain about the quality of your drinking water???
- And to end on a little good news, you’ve probably heard that Edward Snowden is on his way to (or by now already in) Ecuador, where (with the help of WikiLeaks and a special refugee travel document to replace his revoked passport) he is seeking asylum. Uber-authoritarian Schumer has a hypocritical fit of course. (“Allies should …” er, maybe not hack each other’s computers?). But best of all is Hong Kong’s statement on why they allowed Snowden to depart despite a U.S. extradition order. Whole statement must be read: it’s short and it amounts to a great big “FU, Big Bro.”
