Following on the latest example of out-of-control federal prosecutors, Cato Institute’s Radley Balko has the best line of the day in responding to one of the vapid rationalizations for Congress’ jihad against online betting — “we have to protect our chidren from such evils:”
“The people who are pushing this ban in Congress . . . try to argue these sites prey on children, which is totally ridiculous,” [Balko] said. “If your kid has access to your checking account or credit card and is making transfers to off-shore accounts across the world, Internet gambling is the least of your worries.”
Balko has more on the absurdity of all this here.
