In Florida, shear regulatory madness

Posted by Richard on September 19, 2014

Since the militarization of police forces began, there have been many instances of outrageous police overreach, and Mark Steyn has documented a number of them. His latest example may have you tearing your hair out.

I often joke with my hairdresser Amanda about the number of state permits she requires for the privilege of cutting my hair. As I point out on page 49 of After America (personally autographed copies of which are exclusively available, etc):

In the Fifties, one in twenty members of the workforce needed government permission in order to do his job. Today, it’s one in three.

That’s tyrannous – which is bad enough, albeit not unique to America: The entire developed world has massively expanded the hyper-regulatory state. But only in America does the Department of Paperwork command lethal force:

Go and read the whole unbelievable story.

Angry crowds should have descended upon the offices of Florida’s Department of Business and Professional Regulation with protest signs. Or tar and feathers. What will it take for a significant portion of the population to rise up and shout, “Enough! This is tyranny!”?

    I don’t know what it’s going to take, but I think my answer would have to include the words “not too much more”. Just in the last day ANOTHER innocent man was shot by a stupid, trigger happy South Carolina State Trooper. The victim was extremely lucky that this asshole didn’t kill him. It wasn’t for lack of trying, but fortunately this idiot couldn’t shoot any better than Elmer Fudd. We are being governed by fucking nuts, and some people still think MY political philosophy is extreme. Go figure.
