NEVER FORGET: We all lost something on 9/11/2001, but thousands lost someone on that day. My condolences to them, now as then.  Let’s stay strong and vigilant as individuals and as a nation – and hopefully our political class will follow.

Pre-crime is real: Indian State Allows Pre-Emptive Arrest for Online Obscenity, Copyright Violations:

In the state of Karnataka in southern India, Minority Report has come true. Actually, the state’s so-called Goondas Act–an umbrella law covering offenses from bootlegging to gambling–has long allowed police to put habitual offenders in “preventive custody†for up to a year before they offend again. But just this month Karnataka’s government expanded the law even further to make it cover copyright violations and “digital offenses†such as sharing material deemed obscene or blasphemous.

Good times.  Fortunately, something like that could never happen here

JOURNALISM IS HARD: Vox entertainment news piece reveals 7-year Tony Soprano mystery, gets it wrong: “A journalist for Vox misconstrued what David Chase said in their interview. To simply quote David as saying,’Tony Soprano is not dead,’ is inaccurate.”

That was no journalist.  That was a Vox writer…

RIP: Don Pardo, Longtime Voice of ‘Saturday Night Live,’ Dead at 96.

Never had the chance to work with him.  I guess I’m too young.  But a former boss of mine who started out as a page at 30 Rock (not at the show – I mean the address!) told me Pardo would read NBC staff voicemail announcements for a buck, if you asked him…

Poor critical thinking from Paul Krugman: “Libertarianism is a crusade against problems we don’t have.”

The future is libertarian, because unless we learn to respect everyone’s freedom, we have no future:

Andrew W.K.:

The world isn’t being destroyed by democrats or republicans, red or blue, liberal or conservative, religious or atheist — the world is being destroyed by one side believing the other side is destroying the world. The world is being hurt and damaged by one group of people believing they’re truly better people than the others who think differently. The world officially ends when we let our beliefs conquer love. We must not let this happen.

Not a very bright future, anyway…

6-Year Bloggiversary!  It was 6 years ago today that this blog launched, surviving several months in obscurity until its first Insta-lanche in December of 2008.  That led me to become acquainted with many members of the Rightosphere, right as the Obama era launched.  Many thanks to Dan Collins, Ed Driscoll, R.S. McCain, and Prof. Reynolds – and to so many others too numerous to mention – for their support all these years.  That includes the over 370,000 visitors to the blog since it launched, along with its Twitter followers.  A modest figure, but appreciated no less.

I don’t blog as often as I did back then, when I was fresh out of law school, unemployed, and merely engaged to be married.  Now I’m married and raising a family, practicing law; and running two businesses.  But the blog goes on!

Who could have seen that coming? Legal Pot in the US Is Crippling Mexican Cartels. And the DEA doesn’t like it.

Reduced cartel threat equals reduced influence and budget for the DEA. What’s not to like?

Cartels will find other things to do, just like the Mob did after Prohibition. But that’s no reason not to end the War on a Drugs.

Celebrate Independence *and* Liberty: Good thing the Founders successfully fought tyranny all those years ago.  But tyranny is always at hand, especially in democracies, which choose among elites to have one or another wield power.  And power corrupts.

So, in truth, the fight against tyranny in the USA should never end.  Happy 4th!

Up Next On the Feds’ Nanny State’s List: Premium cigars: 

We can assure you, nothing could rip the soul of the cigar industry apart, like FDA actions. For example, some of the (again) hypothetical possibilities, but that are not beyond the realm of reason include: No more walk in humidors (Canadian model); Limits on advertising and promotions; Banning the very word cigar or tobacco; Manufacturers having to submit blends to FDA for “testing,” before heading to your local shop – imagine the impact on boutique cigar makers; Adverse impact on flavored tobacco products; And price impact due to new fees on manufacturers. This, is the short list.

More from online retailer here.

It’s hard enough to come by a good cigar as it is.  But statists never know where to draw the line…
