    https://freedomisobvious.blogspot.com/2021/05/no-such-thing-as-good-cop.html Today I begin with the thesis that there is no such thing as a "good" cop. If you are one of those who are ready to jump down my throat and hurl rotten tomatoes at me, I ask that you remain calm until I have explained my position in sufficient detail. Bear in mind that most of what I will assert and attempt to defend bears the modifying amendment of "as currently constituted" and/or "as currently defined". I will do my best to make all of this clear in short order. To begin, I strenuously and unequivocally object to the concept of a "law enforcement officer" for the reason that "law" stands ill-defined in every source I have come to know. In the dozens of attempts at defining "law" that I have read, which range from Bouvier's and other law dictionaries, to various less-formal swags, nowhere have I encountered a definition that was in any way so much as approaching the sufficiency of rigor. This is more than a little surprising, given that the future's of countless lives have hung and continue to hang on the concept, which speaks directly to the much vaunted idea of "justice". How can one have justice if we cannot define that which is just? Even more surprising is the fact that one of the very best treatments on the subject can be found on wikipedia.org, a source I generally and validly view with keen suspicion and doubt. And yet, the article acknowledges my assertion that there exist no proper definitions of the term. To wit: There have been several attempts to produce "a universally acceptable definition of law".

    Politically speaking, human beings tend to suck. That is my personal opinion on the matter. Tribal anarchy was a nice arrangement whose time is now over. People mostly respected one another and when they didn't, they settled matters between them - sometimes agreeably, other times with violence. Then there were the tribal tyrants - really not much different in essence from today's high-tech tyrants. Consider the Comanche and other, similar American Indian tribes. They were warlike and often preyed on their neighbors, often manifesting truly spectacular displays of brute violence sufficiently extreme to chill the blood of even many a rotten conqueror. The myth of the peaceful and wise Indian is a load of crap in many cases, but let me not digress. Tyrannical tribes has preyed on the mostly peaceable anarchistic tribes since God only knows when. This appears to have been the case worldwide - humans. Then someone got the idea to become "civilized". So far as anyone knows, thus far, that all started in Sumer long years ago when they built a walled city in order to defend the community from roving bands of blood-thirsty hoods who'd come in and raid them. I will not judge the merits of this idea because I was not there and therefore do not know how bad things may have been. But knowing humans, especially the breeds found in the middle east, I can readily imagine that things may have been pretty dismal.

    Yes, I should have made that clear, but there should also be a conglomerated DB as well to serve as a redundancy measure. People should be able to make copies of their original ballots and send them nationwide to watchdog organizations, for example. And I would make it a class-A felony to alter a copy in any way whatsoever such that the truth of the ballot such as whose it is, how they voted, etc. would present a misleading picture. We all know precisely the sorts of fukkery that would go on, especially with Democrats, falsifying copies for memes and that sort of thing in order to whip up public anger and all that. Voting may be bullshit, but it's what we have and so long as that be the case, we should be stern about cleanliness near to the point of the draconian. The other side of that coin would be that anyone convicted of falsely accusing someone of committing such as felony would face long prison stays with large and very lonely men whose motto is "gay for the stay", and be financially ruined, including their families. Make fukkery so grave with horrific risk that all but the most hard-core criminal dementeds would even dare think about such things. I would add the same wildly horrific punishments for anyone convicted of ballot fukkery at polling places. You count the votes honestly, efficiently, and do not bring in or out suitcases full of ballots at 3AM. Everything is monitored via video 24x7, you remain sequestered on site until the counting is done, no leaving for home, food is brought to you, and if so much as a single vote in your charge is wrong, you will have a LOT of explaining to do with no benefit of legal counsel, no right to remain silent, and so forth. These are the brands of measures necessary if we are to be serious about straightening out the mafia we call "government". They must be so full of dread at the thought of doing wrong that if they have even the least inclination to it, they will simply resign or never volunteer in the first place. Chicanery has got to be terrifying to everyone. Otherwise, I recommend we all admit to what we really are and lay down for Themme and be done with it. At least we could retain a shred of respectability for honesty. Once again - this COULD be done, and without much exertion or expense. That we have not done it speaks not well of us.

    Here's the protection scheme: 1 Paper ballots and no electronic voting. 2. Every ballot has a unique identifier - a serial number, if you will. 3. Every voter keeps original ballot, a carbon copy stays with polling place. 4. Original copy has voter's name printed on it.

I find it amazing to consider just how hopelessly corrupt a land we are, and have been for so very long a time when I read things like this. To think not only that some people would dare usurp the authority to remove those which are the most obvious prerogatives of free men, but also that we as a people would

The fact is this: we failed from the earliest days.
