2018-10-04: Search server active for recent posts, rebuilding for older posts. DesuArchive & RBT restored after host's storage had a 2nd SAN hiccup on 9/24. No damage, but posts need import from the contingency scraper. Many thanks to our new tetrarchy of sysadmins who worked to fix this complex service after the loss of the original admin. More info later. Donations would still help in case of image storage failure and we still need a new scraper.
The server is stable, but the scraper is at its final limits due to crippling resource use and cloudflare limits, so /gif/ and /wsg/ images are paused. Let's solve this: help build a new scraper. More details here.
Ghostposting is under extreme vetting by new moderators to mitigate spam. Crackspamming or responding to any is a bannable offense.

Would the US be better with conscription, with an option to work on civil infrastructure projects for people who didn't want to go into military?
How about police? There's loads of places in the states that need more bodies in their police force but simply don't have the budget. Like Flint, I watched a documentary and it claimed Flint needs like 300 patrol officers and only has 60 or something.
Would raising a federal police force that acted like a reserve pool of officers that local police could dip into be a workable idea? Paid by the Fed, but under the authority of the local PD or Sheriff?
