Landmark Victory For Institute For Justice, Which deserves Nobel Peace Prize For Its Ongoing Legal Efforts Advancing Human Rights, by Mark J. Perry, at carpediemblog. This is a victory for the individual in his fight against Government’s illegal use of force. Civil asset forfeiture laws are violations of our individual rights as spelled out in Fourth, Fifth, Sixth and Fourteenth Amendments of the Constitution. The Institute for Justice does great work helping individuals fight against the tyranny of government. We should all celebrate this victory because it is not just a victory for this particular individual. It is a victory for all individuals.

Gov. Brown Signs Law To Limit Plastic Straws In Full-Service Restaurants, at sacramento.cbslocal.com. Starting next year it will be illegal for full service restaurants to give a customer a plastic straw unless the customer asks for one.

Why do we listen to such nonsense?

“Terrifying”: New Documents Reveal Secret Govt Rules For Spying On US Journalists, at zerohedge.com. The main stream media doesn’t cover the fact that the FBI used The FISA court to surveil Trump because they want to get rid of him by any means necessary. What they don’t understand is the means used by government insiders to get Trump can also be used against them. Don’t these all knowing journalists know that Obama’s former Attorney General Eric Holder spelled out to the FBI in a memo that the AG will sign off on FISA applications to surveil “known media entities or known members of the media.” The MSM doesn’t understand that their ‘freedom of the press’, guaranteed in the constitution, only exists if Government allows it to exist. By not covering FBI and DOJ corruption related to Trump they are allowing the hangman to use a noose that could eventually be put around their neck.

40% Of Venezuela Stores Go Bust After 3,000% Minimum Wage Hike, at zerohedge.com. Government mandates don’t happen in a vacuum. Incentives created by these policies have consequences. It doesn’t matter if the mandated minimum wage is $1000 dollars an hour if no businesses exist.
