In The Other Man's Boots

Flip around your assumptions for a moment.

You are now a middle-aged career government employee.

Your agency is one of the Executive Branch's enforcement mechanisms.

You still believe in "the mission".

You are still ambitious enough to want that last notch or two in the civil service stepladder -- the ones that do not come automatically.

You know in broad strokes what the .gov in general in seeking -- more rules, more enforcement, more budget justification, more resources. Rinse and repeat.

Eternally.

You also know that the growing sense of frustration amongst voters is likely to expand, as that cycle repeats.

Looking at your ambition, your agency's agenda, and Leviathan's lust for evermore of everything, is there any plausible reason at all not to give full rein to those appetites?

Any reason at all?

Food for thought....

Undoubtedly there will be some. There always have been. They don't yet realize that their superiors view them with contempt too, that they are expendable tools. Always have been. Medals and raises are stick-on gold stars compared to the compensation to the real elites. Pocket change.
I'd rather be around to see my grandchildren grow up.

Who has identified and positively located their local thug agency's exact location and where their personnel are and what they're up to?

I haven't, I doubt very many have done so.

That needs doing. We need to watch the watchers.

That was a bone chilling observation. Thank you. I honestly have never stopped to think of their perspective. And truthfully wouldnt have guessed that much was going on up there. But thank you for pointing out the truth. That their perspective is f**k them i want a raise.

And for the guys who claim to be "good guys" and "not like the others"?

Do you have names and investigative information on each of the bad actors in your agency ready to pass to the Resistance?

'Cuz if you don't, how are you a good guy?

Back in November or December last year I pointed out that my city's police website listed the names of all their officers. Using that plus the www.zabasearch.com web search engine I was able to find the home address of each and every one of them. Like the Boy Scout Motto - Be Prepared, I was able to locate the homes of all of them, just in case that info would ever be needed. When I posted that item, I was BRANDED a FED TROLL for my effort. I would rather have that info available and never need it than to have the need for that info and not be able to find it. Be prepared, I just bought another 1000 rounds of ammo today and an AK-47 Pistol. Only 20 1/4 inches long so it is more concealable than a full sized one and will deliver a whole lot more firepower than a Nine Mil.

I like Pat H's comment here. Zabasearch and whitepages are great resources.

The infamous "Turban Dragon" here:

Don't most of these government supergrades get early retirement at 55? If I knew at 48 that I was done, I could easily wait my years out until living off the taxpayers.

It is the younger guys we should fear more, the ones who still have a shot at being Directors.

The older guys are simply whores and will go to the side who offers the most, something that the feds will have a hard time offering due to the bankrupt public pensions.

For the guys who claim to be "the good guys" a thourough debriefing/interrogation using their own field manuals, would get what we need. Though bribing is much easier.

Exactly.

Another great post to get people thinking. People like this are ALL OVER in FedGov.

Those boots remind me of THESE boots.
It is graphic, but maybe you need to see what "the mission" might involve.

It was either Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn or James Michener who wrote a chapter in one of their books about the god-like power the typical Stasi welded. He could use his power to coerce the good looking wife of a man to sleep with him, under implied threat he could trump up any charge he wanted to haul the couple and their family to prison. His badge, uniform, and authority was a golden pass to to get anything he desired from the common people--and that such people were currency to spend for his career advancement. If the people were actually guilty, well and good, if not, so what? Everyone knows that the State does not make mistakes---it only buries them.

The vast majority will follow orders-just as in Nazi Germany.
"They don't write the laws,they just enforce them-write your congressman if you have a problem."

I think the "good guys" are a small minority.Very small.

Fedzilla feeds me; there lies my loyalty. The rabble calling to cancel my meal ticket will fail of its own inability to effectively coalesce or will be put out of business by my agency.

That's life tax serf, get used to it. If you're not gov, you're nothing.

If they have made it to the “career government employee” stage, they are there for the power trip and / or money.
The fear of having to get a real job and be self sufficient will be enough to frighten any parasite away from doing what is morally right and just.

Given the poor economy and slow pace of recovery, police agencies will be forced to undergo budget cuts so that a larger share of diminishing tax revenues can be redirected to bread and circuses.

The police may well become disaffected by this rough treatment and respond passively through work assignment slow-downs and "blue flu" absenteeism.

There will be decreased police presence on the streets and more agency resources assigned to "white collar" crimes such as tax evasion. Entire neighborhoods will be without adequate police and fire protection, much as is presently occurring in some Michigan cities such as Saginaw.

Public safety will, of necessity, become a neighborhood "crime watch" activity and police work will come to be viewed as a career path with fewer and fewer opportunities. Many "lifers" will take early retirement.

Sorry, but I don't see this as an enviroment favorable to Machiavellian maneuver by droves of unscrupulous cops.

Anon @12:16, that sounds like much of Michener's book "The Bridge at Andau," about the Hungarian Uprising. The secret police group there was the AVO. The book is a must read.
