"A worthy effort, but I fear this will simply start to turn the general public against the Free State Project. These are the kind of idiotic regulations we need to fight against, but the whole point of the project was to do it through democracy and the legislative process."
In order to do it through "democracy," you have to make the general public aware of the ridiculous fact that manicurists are required to undergo a state-approved 300-hour course at a state-approved school and pass a state-administered exam in order to trim and paint other peoples' fingernails for money.
I can assure you that most people are not aware of this, except of course the manicurists themselves. A publicity stunt such as this, with broad coverage in the media providing tens of thousands of dollars worth of free advertising, is a way to attract attention to the issue so that the legislative process can be engaged by more than a handful of individuals.
In the meantime, though, the Board of Cosmetology is protecting New Hampshire from these dangerous threats to the health and safety of its citizens:

It's true if it had been me I would have picked a different law to violate, but Mike is taking a stand most would not have the guts to take.
That in and of itself is evidence he's probably got stones to a greater extent than most of us on this thread.
