“Soft despotism is a term coined by Alexis de Tocqueville describing the state into which a country overrun by "a network of small complicated rules" might degrade. Soft despotism is different from despotism (also called 'hard despotism') in the sense that it is not obvious to the people."

When catapults are outlawed, only outlaws will have catapults
The U.S. National Guard spotted would-be drug smugglers on video Jan. 21 near the Naco Border Patrol station along the Mexico-Arizona border setting up a catapult, which was probably intended to be used to launch marijuana over the border.
It's the right idea, but the catapult is pointed the wrong way. We need to set up a catapult on this side of the fence, and fling illegals back to Mexico.

How is it that the US National Guardsmen are in Mexico, with the catapult?ReplyDelete
Did we preemptively invade Mexico and seize it?
Or did the smugglers tow it to the US, to provide for the photo opportunity?

Police in Pakistan have charged an unnamed US consular official with double murder after they say he shot and killed two motorcycle riders in the eastern city of Lahore.
The Illinois Supreme Court ruled Thursday that former White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel met residency requirements and that his name will stay on the mayoral ballot in Chicago.
The justices said Emanuel's opponents did not prove that he had given up residency when he served in the Obama administration in Washington.
The court further ordered that no ballots be printed until all the names except Emanuel's have been stricken from the Mayoralty Candidate Rolls.ReplyDelete
