Thoughts, essays, and writings on Liberty. Written by the heirs of Patrick Henry.

“They (the emperors) frequently abused their power arbitrarily to deprive their subjects of property or of life: their tyranny was extremely onerous to the few, but it did not reach the greater number; .. But it would seem that if despotism were to be established amongst the democratic nations of our days it might assume a different character; it would be more extensive and more mild, it would degrade men without tormenting them.”     Alexis de Tocqueville

Quote Of The Day

by Brad Warbiany

The state of Washington is currently in process on a bill that will impound any car for 12 hours where the driver is arrested on suspicion of DUI. This will be automatic — whether the car is owned by an innocent third party, or whether someone else in the vehicle can legally drive does not exempt the auto from the policy.

But here’s the quote:

The Towing and Recovery Association of Washington is one of the main lobbying organizations pushing for the adoption of the law.

Really?! I’m SHOCKED!

Who’da thunk the tow truck lobby cared so much about the children?

Hat Tip: Overlawyered
