Funny, I can think of at least 2 groups we cannot criticize currently in the US. One owns our banks, the other owns the oil we needlessly purchase when our own reserves are superior...

Hmmm... Well, there's no need to mention who owns the banks. That's obvious. The ones who own the oil, must be Saudis, because you can criticize Muslims to a point, but the one and only Muslim nation the US doesn't mess with are the Saudis.

My friend's words might have been seen as absurd twenty years ago but now...now they have a much more authentic ring to them.


The late David Lane had a number of flaws. Still, he was spot on when he said it was time to put aside illusions about the police. "They are mercenaries." No mercenary is better than his master. Our masters today are people like Soros, the EU, Wall Street. Do you trust them? Then do not trust the police.

The defenders of the police often say, "The police are only human." This is true. Unfortunately, health insurance, a regular job, and a retirement pension are all powerful inducements for a human to go against his own better judgment. I think of the times I've bit my tongue and let a corner be cut in my own routine job. I don't fool myself: after a few years of that as a cop, it gets easier and easier to let bigger corners be cut. Especially with the adulation from some quarters; the tendency of the American political right to get down on its knees and turn "cop-sucker."

It's not as though the human being who is a police officer is any more wicked than anyone else. It is the policies the man serves which are deplorable, and those who make those policies. The cop is just a tool, not the real enemy. But it would be a foolish thing to put one's faith in those cops for reasons already so accurately stated. Treat them with the same courtesy you would any other human being, but never forget whom they serve.
