Re: Don't mess with Canadians carrying sticks ... Jeffrey Walton (Oct 24)
I think there's a critical flaw in your logic. I think its the
difference between theory and practice. The rule of law applies to
little folks like you and I; and does not appear to apply to the
oligarchy.

Until the law applies to everyone equally, I'm more than happy to find
satisfaction in the vigilantes.

Agreed. I think this is apropos:

he does not become a monster.

They should either lose elections, or they should end up in a criminal

Saying that it's OK for random vigilantes to shoot at them means you've
basically given up the idea of the rule of law.

" If nothing else, remember that most of them have families that will grieve.
Those politicians need to lose an election. Not a life."

Re: Don't mess with Canadians carrying sticks ... Jeffrey Walton (Oct 23)
I should probably agree with you here. Not all of them deserve to be
punished. I would shed a tear for ones with political courage. But
they are very few and far between.

Here's another way to look at the penalty, though: politicians and
their friends commit crimes against the democracy and the people that
would make Bin Laden green with envy. The breadth and depth of their
crimes are unrivaled. Bin Laden himself could not pull off a crime...

Re: Don't mess with Canadians carrying sticks ... Jeffrey Walton (Oct 23)
Reagan was not a good example. Six or so of his senior staff went to
jail after his presidency for their crimes. The investigations stopped
at Bush and Reagan (take a guess why...).

Bin Laden and friends were Reagan's "Freedom Fighters". They were well
funded and well trained. We can thank Reagan and friends for the rise
of the nice folks who are trying to kill us, and who we're trying to
kill now.

Oh, and Reagan was an...

Unless, of course, you feel its somehow OK that they deny you use of your
mobile device and deny you updates and security patches until you agree to
data collection, agree to a litany of other obscene terms, join their store
program, provide a credit card, and pay for a developer license to run...

Would you bestow honors on the guys who stopped John Hinkly Jr before he

Yes, many of them *are* corrupt, but jumping from there to "Every single

Not sure about this quote from the article, though:

Vickers is being described by many as a hero.

Politicians are usually corrupt to the core. They are more than happy
to take money and peddle influence. I'd much rather see a politician
killed, and I'm not sure I would bestow honors on someone who stopped
it...
