My credo
get outta my way, I'm falling!
Is there abuse of power in Government, yes, same as at corporations, and Mom and Pop grocery stores, that's a human thing
"Power corrupts, absolute power corrupts absolutely"

But its one of those things you can't prevent just fix it after it happens, so there will always be bad people and some will get elected

When we finally have the Computer Overlords, things will be different, no greed or avarice, or other human failings when it comes down to having "power" over others
"Here's the right answer, deal with it" :)
No need for Lawyers

that brings to mind a scene near the end of Robocop

Humans really screwed that one up
But that's the problem if there is ANY human input into ANY control system

Here you have a nice robot cop, no ego, no agenda, then they stick a human brain in it
MAX HEADROOM

I am more of a "The day the earth stood still" the original, guy
Robot cop with NO HUMAN, and NO ALIEN input, lets you do what you want until you F'up, doesn't get mad, can't be insulted, doesn't really care at all unless you F'up

Just remember that you CANNOT bring logic into this discussion, as any politician that attempts to do anything with it will dumb it up and ruin EVERYTHING, I'm pretty sure 98.632% of all politicians do not live in the real world, especially those career politicians that are everywhere anymore... I can understand both sides of the argument but agree with the side that says the best thing to do is just enforce what we have now (or get rid of some of them that make things complicated) and concentrate on getting the people under control...

"...and concentrate on getting the people under control...".

Not sure how to read that. Isn't that the gist of nearly the entire conversation - government overreach and 'control'? I'll wait...

Yeah, I didn't put much thought into the wording of that and that isn't what I meant... I mean hold the people accountable that are making bad decisions causing the problems, like the crack heads that dump trash and burn cars out in the woods that get all of the offroad roads closed off... it only takes a couple bad apples to ruin it for everyone else.

In theory, theory and practice are the same. In practice, they are different.
You didn't look very thoroughly.

My credo
Crossed threads are tight threads.
Blaming a legal gun owner for some lowlife stealing the weapon and committing a crime is a steaming pile of horse puckies. The thief is responsible for his own actions.
In CA if someone breaks into your house and gets injured on your property, they can sue you (and win).
