Florida Supreme Court needs to take head out of sand

The Florida Supreme Court is hearing arguments over whether Florida voters should have the opportunity to vote on medical marijuana. Supreme Court Chief Justice Ricky Polston posed this question :

“If a student is stressed over exams, and they go in and see a doctor, and they say ‘I’m really stressed out,’ and the doctor says ‘I’ve got something I can help you with,’ and prescribes marijuana, wouldn’t that be included in this?”

I would like to remind the court that no Florida high school or college student needs or wants to see a doctor if they want pot…

Your Bitcoin papers please?

Bitcoin is pseudo-anonymous, pseudo-private crypto currency. Each Bitcoin transaction is listed in a public ledger, but the parties to the transaction are not personably identified. Coin Validation wants to change that. According to this Forbes article, the Coin Validation idea came about during “a conversation about how to make Bitcoin more legitimate in the eyes of banks and the government.”

I say, this entire premise is wrong. Bitcoin users do not need to sacrifice their privacy in order to become “more legitimate” in the eyes of anyone outside the transaction. Bitcoin should not be neutered in order to make it fit into the existing Wall Street/Washington DC field of view.

Change is difficult. but Wall Street and Washington need to adapt to Bitcoin, not the other way around.

She walks a mile in his gun belt

Ms. Magazine writer, with no firearms experience or training, buys a Glock and starts carrying it. She is documenting her Month with a Gun on the Ms. Blog. The comments on the Week One report are very interesting… Those same staunch 2nd Amendment absolutists–who see a gun confiscation regime behind any regulation–are shocked and horrified she did not get training before buying a firearm…

The Second Amendment doesn’t say anything about training or experience. And that’s the problem. Gun rights activists seem to believe anyone who would buy a gun is as knowledgable, responsible, sane, level-headed and safe as they are. In the real world, that’s not the case. So if you believe training should be required, we’re going to need some regulation. If you think crazy, irresponsible or even blind people should not have a blanket right to firearms, we’re going to need some regulation.
