Carnival of Liberty #5

Welcome to our Fifth Carnival of Liberty. I'd like to thanks Eric of Eric's Grumbles Before the Grave for working so hard at getting this together. Carnival of Liberty VI will be hosted by Stephen Littau of Fearless Philosophy for Free Minds.

I've made some categories that seemed to fit. If anyone wants their post in a different category, or has other suggestions, let me know [owlishmutterings at]. In particular, I'm unhappy with such a large miscellaneous category.

Decreasing Freedom in the Western World

Shamalama at Common Folk Using Common Sense presents Will Someone Please Explain This To Me? Specifically, he wonders about a lawsuit aimed at a gunstore.

Ogre of Ogre's Politics and Views has been working in the yard, and wonders why he hasn't been jailed for such self destructive behavior.

Ken (aka Obi-Wan) of Forward Biased wonders Is Justice (Color)Blind and decides, in this case, it isn't.

Stop the ACLU writes about... problems with the ACLU. Specifically, the disconnect involved when one part of the ACLU wants to stop tax-exempt status for all churches, and one part tries to get tax-exempt status for pagans.

Kevin the Lousiana Libertarian writes about recent so-called postal reform in the US.

Increasing Freedom

Tom Carroll of Mud&PHud reports on some Good News in New London, in light of the Kelo decision.
