The Economist's Cookbook

Recipes For A More Free Society

  • "The curious task of economics is to demonstrate to men how little they know about what they imagine they can design."

    - F.A. Hayek

Here is the story from the Boston Globe.


The Supreme Court ruled Monday that police officers have leeway to frisk a passenger in a car stopped for a traffic violation even if nothing indicates the passenger has committed a crime or is about to do so.
Oy, seriously? Oh it's okay everyone they have to have "reasonable suspicion". I guess if you're black, or your car is modified, or you're drunk and your sober friend is driving you home, or maybe you're a concealed carry permit holder, or maybe you're just minding your own business.

Next thing on the Government "to-do" list: Roadside body cavity searches "for the officer's protection" of course.

Yay America, Bend over and spread your cheeks, the Government requires this "for your own protection."

And people wonder why the libertarians are buying up as many guns as they can get their hands on...
