Not only no but f--k no

Kn@ppster comments on the Federal Trade Commission's new rules, requiring bloggers to publicly disclose compensation they receive for product endorsements (Washington Post, Associated Press), with fines for violations up to $11,000.

Dear Federal Trade Commission:

Go f--k yourselves. This is my blog, not your blog. I will write whatever I choose to write, I'll write it for whatever reasons I choose to write it, and I'll disclose as much or as little about those reasons as I damn well please.

If you think you can squeeze $11,000 out of me over it, feel free to try. You won't get a dime you don't take at gunpoint, and the only way you'll stop me from continuing to write as I please is to stick me in jail or kill me.

Yours in liberty (hah!),

Unfortunately, the f.t.c., as with every branch of the gummint, is perfectly happy to cage or kill whomever it decides it doesn't like. That's how government works. Violence and the threat of violence are its only methods.
