    True, but it should be “extortion” not “blackmail”. Hey, I’ll be less picky after some coffee. Honest.

    Some days it’s less “government” and more “protection racket”.

    “Gee citizen, nice life you have here. Nice job, nice car, nice house, nice wife and kids. It’d sure be a shame if someone came along and arrested you for something. But maybe if you pay us a little reasonable fee, we can keep this kind of thing from happening to you.””
