On this thanksgiving I thank Janet Yellen! Don't fight the FED.
Hmm, so the armed government functionaries take more than the "criminals".
Yes, cops exist to protect and serve, themselves. The few like Bantle and Kleiber that cross that thin blue line learn that the hard way.
Mark S. and other trolls, I'd suggest answering David's excellent questions before taking one additional step. Sun Tzu said know your enemies: Who is the enemy lurking in Steamboat? David's questions and Sun Tzu may show there is not much "need" for police at all in an affluent and relatively remote place. What is the difference in actual crime in Oak Creek when they had part-time police and now when they have a lot more? Not made-up for-profit crimes, but actual injury to others and their property.
Mark, who is "we" and what is "need"?
Though is stealing stolen loot actually stealing?
I would bet the people transferred from GITMO would be more secure than the Securus phone system Garrett Wiggum (intentional) uses at his jail.
Hopefully this new bunch doesn't sell their souls to the Devil for 30 pieces of "free" silver. But I guess money does grow on tress; Ben Bernanke told me himself in his very humbly titled book "Courage to Act (by conjuring digital dollars out of thin air)".
And France has very progressive climate control, immigration and gun control laws. A veritable paradise.
Dan, it's not about save the day. It is the general malaise of people and lack of situational awareness. Everything is fine even though the government is bombing other people; the police and French version of NSA will protect me. If France is at war, the people should be on war footing. ISIS knows they can fill that vacuum with violence.
Tom, I certainly don't disagree that there is and always are ongoing clashes of people/civilizations. That is the nature of the human condition, as you so tightly point out regularly. However, Paris and the Russian plane are also clearly "blowback" for bombing ISIS in Syria by the governments supposedly representing the French and Russians. France has major socialistic and moral problems, only exacerbated by bombing other people and talking about nonsense like climate change. It is a mess which makes it an easy target. Heavy metal concert but no one smart enough to pack their own heavy metal, as you point out regarding Second Amendment.
