If the government jumps the shark…

…can we cancel it?

The exact same agencies that would be charged with enforcing the [anti-“gun trafficking”] proposal are currently under investigation — and may eventually face felony charges — because they broke existing laws and participated in widespread gun trafficking. To borrow from a reader, the federal government is using federal agencies to break federal laws so that same federal government can impose more federal laws on the people that did not break the law.

It is Orwellian in its absurdity, and yet entirely real.

    just business as usual for governments. A year or so ago, an acquaintance and I were discussing the Afghan war. He said they, meaning the U.S., just has to stop the corruption of the Afghan government and all would be well. I suggested they start with the corruption in u.s. government at every level. He gaped at me like I was an alien or something.

    Regarding the first comment:
    It amazes me how even in the other countries I have lived in there is a pervasive misconception that the US government is so free of corruption. Asians are amazed when I explain how it works here. They think everything is so clean and runs so smoothly here. At least in S.E. Asia or South America the average guy can afford the bribes now and then.
    Here you have to be a billionaire.

    Indeed. I’ve been talking with a man in Ghana who runs ISIL freedom camp seminars… and he was aghast to learn the putridity of politicians at the state and city levels here. He knew there was a rotten mess in the district of criminals, but had not so much thought about there being corrupt city councilmen and assorted bureaucrats.

    Considering that, it was surprising in a way that he immediately understood the fact of corrupt and out of control cops here. His people have never known any other kind.

To the stake with the heretic!
