    How long will it take man to learn that a police state does not work ??
    Russia seems to be particularly dense..
    Well, maybe this will work in the short term….but, the short term is over.

    The coat labels are in english, my bad for thinking it was America the toon was about.
    Not a bad guess though.

    There already is one in America. We could start with the NSA and then move to the rest of the “alphabet soup” of government law enforcement.
    After all, the US has per capita one of the highest incarceration rates on the planet. I think that is a good marker of a police state.

    Perhaps the Egyptian all knowing eye in the pyrimid was the symbol of the first police state.

    It’s not “one of the”. The US is exceptional. It has no peers.

    Ahab, yes, and if you knocked one out, you were DQ’d. The new ‘benders’ with armor plated forearms have made times faster. (And occasionally increase business for dentists!)


    As to those “sexual orientation police”, Salt Lake wasn’t exactly a “freedom zone” with the locals for that same segment of the populace. But figure skating might be more a target than slalom.

    No, no. If it was America, they would be in the name of Goodness and Justice and Social Harmony.
    Anti-TEA Party Checkpoint.
    Hate-speech Police.
    Homosexuality and Abortion Rights police.
    Did you know that even while we think that there are huge mountains, the Earth is pretty much all at the one same level when you have any sort of perspective on things?
    We are so small, and the universe is so big.

    As opposed to the right wing anti-abortion police.

    And now we are seeing what Adrian refers to as ‘extremists’. No particular stripe or common ground, only the belief that their way is the only correct way.

    I do not care what the uniform says, violence used to control me is annoying.

    And I agree with you on both your points (multiple government agencies, highest incarceration rates on the planet).

    ‘Thing is, you’re a conservative, right? Don’t conservatives push for the “law and order” overkill? Just checking.

    @Rad-ish

    Yes. The distinctions are somewhat without any real difference with some perspective added. Stupid people being stupid and hating all the stupid people being stupid.
    It is wonderful.

    Ya know, I find it hard to take Snowden seriously when he flees first to China (for it’s “history of human rights support”; seriously?) and then to Russia.

    Misread slalom as shalom and thought it was about Israel.

    Rest assured, it is for somebody.
