Really, calling [Barack Obama] a socialist is a compliment. It implies he has some kind of philosophy other than "seek power" and "self-aggrandize".

…as some­one who grew up eat­ing mar­garine, the notion that the fed­er­al gov­ern­ment is prepar­ing offi­cial­ly to ban it, as the FDA recent­ly announced, strikes me both as tru­ly bizarre and emblem­at­ic of the arro­gance of cen­tral plan­ning that char­ac­ter­izes the Oba­ma admin­is­tra­tion.

A Mod­est Argu­ment About Police Cul­ture Cul­mi­nat­ing in a Ref­er­ence to the Hare Psy­chopa­thy Check­list. Whites have sin­ners and saints.

Blacks have sin­ners and saints.

Ore­go­ni­ans, Tex­ans, and New York­ers have sin­ners and saints.

Accoun­tants, hair­dressers, and coal min­ers have sin­ners and saints.

Law Enforce­ment, though, is unlike all of these – the job descrip­tion is orga­nized bul­ly­ing, and that (a) attracts psy­chopaths and (b) con­verts non-psychopaths into – at worst – psy­chopaths, and – at best – into those who mere­ly tol­er­ate, absolve, and cov­er up for the psy­chopaths. [Pope­hat]

This post pret­ty well sums up my own view of police.
