  • Doubledamn. Another good man gone. Roy Innis of C.O.R.E. — a pro-gun leader in the black community, among many other things.
  • Could that friendly tech who fixed your glitchy computer be making more money from the F.B.I. than he is from his regular employer? (H/T MtK)
  • Here’s somebody else whose first float-tank experience didn’t do a whole lot for his brain. But yipes! He paid $89 for an hour? Major ripoff! (Tip o’ hat to JB)
  • Suburban Detroit man gets a $128 ticket for the heinous crime of (prepare yourself; it’s a shock any decent human being would dare do such a thing) … warming up his car in his own driveway. Seems police can’t stop car thefts, so they punish — and profit from! — potential theft victims. Even those who probably aren’t. (H/T MtK)
  • Ten weirdly gorgeous animal hairstyles.

    Not only is leaving your car running unattended illegal in Michigan, it’s (not surprisingly) illegal in New York State as well, as stated in Section 1210 of the NYS Vehicle and Traffic Laws.

    Warming up the car is illegal in Colorado too. It’s called the “anti puffing” law. Going back to my forest attitude – first they have to find me, then they have to catch me.

    Having had to chisel my way into my car on various occasions I am convinced the folks who pass such laws are rich aXXXXXXX with heated garages.

    I didn’t know any of that about Roy Innis. I do remember that when Cliven (I had to look up the name; the only first name I could think of with Bundy was “Ted,” and that just didn’t seem right) Bundy made a foolish gratuitous comment about Blacks, Roy Innis called him and reasoned with him, after which Cliven Bundy apologized. I was very impressed with how well and how courteously Innis had to have handled the situation. And now that I think about it, Innis surely knew the damage the MSM could cause if the issue of race had been allowed to become prominent.

    First-time poster here. Double-damn indeed!

    I had the honor of meeting and speaking at length with Roy Innis at a CNJS (Coalition of New Jersey Sportsmen) 2nd Amendment rally at the State-House Annex. He had lost 2 sons to violence because they had been wrongfully disarmed by gun laws. He was invited to speak against Governor James Florio (who, before 1993, was the ONLY governor in NJ history to serve just 1 term) proposed ‘Assault Weapons’ ban. Mr. Innis was an eloquent, intelligent, and passionate speaker on this, and every issue he commented on, and was an ally to Freedom Fighters everywhere. He will truly be missed.

    NJ is a bastion of freedom-crushing legislation, liberalism, control, regulation, taxation, with a crunch-of-humanity rivaled only by California. I’m SO glad I was able to escape. And, I lament and fear for those who still have to live there. Ask me why; I could tell you an unlimited number of horror stories.

    Thanks for the use. I yield the floor, and welcome your comments.

    Welcome ExpatNJ and thank you. I never had the opportunity to meet Roy Innis and didn’t know about those two sons, but everything you wrote about his is consistent with all the good I’ve heard. He was too often underappreciated.

    As to NJ … even California sounds better (at least CA has places with decent weather!). One of our regular Living Freedom Commentariat members recently escaped NJ, and I’ve seldom seen anybody so happy.

    Two good links, jc2k. I’m surprised (and glad) the tax protest guy didn’t get arrested; seems all too often the ‘crats will find some excuse to make it a crime to pay in coins. And that bill would be good news for WA. Every other place that’s legalized allows small home grows. Time for WA to catch up!
