"Ok, all you new hires. We're conquering Canada and all the way to the Panama Canal. You get a tactical bathrobe and a spoon. Go."

Zactly.

They argue by persuasive essay wordsalad

One you grok that they're perfectly happy with truthiness trumping truth, it's all pretty obvious.

They will be (illegally) performing the various personality tests as part of the application.

AKA: How to get compliant minions.

It has the same problem the raid has.

It's a fishing expedition

When you know your reasons are inadequate, but figure "We'll find something else when we search!" it's a fishing expedition.

It makes everything you did learn technically inadmissible. As if the rules applied to these meat toilets.

The problem is that the core evidence of a pile of these things is a crime itself.

"Hey look! Hunter's Laptop! ... We can arrest him for having it!"

The "I see you covering the fences, what are you hiding I wonder" with the insinuation that she has even better opportunities for photos, or whatever ...

I do think that was a tipping point.

Because walking around in public with a ball gag isn't a good look either.

The 30% is also a problem.

Knowing that it was actually spent on weapons, and the weapons actually arrived, still doesn't mean they can't be "stolen" or sold again

A billion dollars is still a shitload of ammo.

They aren't hypocrites, and trying to prove they are is innately driving off the rails.

They're arguing by persuasive essay where truthiness trumps truth. The simply pick the most toxic version they feel they can articulate 'truthily', and slam it. They don't care if they did the same thing.

It's always the one rule: Power and they don't deviate.

They've been at this awhile more than just "woman" and "recession".

See:

  1. infrastructure

  2. money

  3. religion

  4. marriage

  5. racism

  6. global warming

  7. emergency

  8. assault weapon

  9. machine gun

  10. communism

  11. fascism

But the mere fact that we're so suspicious leads to examining things prior to all that. And a reasonable conclusion that the vast majority of problematic events going back through Obama's entire tenure are also worthy of detailed, public, forensic examination.

If not all the way back to Columbine. And the 'Armed Michelin Men Bank Heist' thing that spurred really arming the cops.

There's also the "We stored it in the warehouse, and ... we wuz robbed! Right before the warehouse was bombed!" defenses.

The key there is to not have a paper trail. Very tough to argue with "the official inventory of the warehouse" when it was then robbed and bombed.

(Psst! We never put the weapons in there! So they're off the books too! We can sell them again )
