From long-time commenter LBascom, comparing the Border Patrol and the Secret Service :
Two federal protection agencies; one protects the country’s borders, one protects the country’s temporary political representative. One is told to take a bullet if they must to do their duty. The other is told to run and hide under threat.
I find it illuminating of our ruling elite’s mind set. They have no intention of living under the conditions they mandate on the rest of us.
A tidy summation without the horrors of one of my thousand-word sentagraphs. Nicely done.
