Apologies to anyone I've left off, or who put a post up after I wrote this. Leave a comment and I'll add you to the list. To other folks who haven't, come on in - the water's fine.
One comment I've seen repeated on this "what can we do to stop this"? We're doing it - this is what we do: whenever the Statist Asshats pull something like this, we make sure the word gets out. We make sure that they have to defend their actions. We do our best to make it news.
They're used to living in the shadows (PR wise). Shine the bright sunlight of attention on them. The government is nothing if not risk adverse; make 'em sweat, and we'll see less of this nonsense.
