Trademark News & Screw-ups First They Came For the Tobacco Trademarks

It is indeed becoming a huge problem. Absolutely despicable how bureaucrats and regulators steal liberties from both the public and the manufacturers of what the bureaucrats deed worthy of regulation. Exactly, first they came for the tobacco trademarks. Then it will be sugary drinks. Then it will be GMO foods. Then it will be [insert some other cause progressives are fighting for]. As much as I don't like second-hand smoke, I find it appalling how smokers are being treated around the world. It's not the government's job to mandate a bar or an airline to offer smoke-free experience. It's not the government's job to protect smokers from themselves. It's not the government's job to tax businesses to death while they're trying to kill them with regulations at the same time. It's easy today to attack smokers, because fewer and fewer people smoke. But this issue has nothing to do with smoke and cancer. It has everything to do with individual rights. It has everything to do with freedom. It has everything to do with usurpation by the government of your right to make choices, even when they are stupid choices. It has everything to do with the government's stealing your right to fail. It has everything to do with your life being owned by the government. If you don't resist the slaughter of tobacco brand trademarks today, you may not recognize your life in 10 years. And I guarantee, the change won't be for the better.
