Dancin_In_Anson: finally coming around

Yea, that's what it is. It's not that you're just full of bullshiat and like to rail aimlessly at what you imagine "LIBS" believe in every thread, it's that people are "finally coming around" after all these years of loving the IRS. Because if there's one thing Americans of all stripes have always loved, it's the taxman.

The fark is wrong with you, anyway? Were you conceived in the middle of a superfund site or something?

Dancin_In_Anson: You must be new here.

Maybe you should ask yourself why you're so easy to peg by somebody who hasn't been on Fark that long?

You're a pathetic joke and everyone knows it. Nobody's coming around to anything, you just live in your own stupid little world where you convenience yourself that other people MUST believe whatever dumbass thing you heard on AM talk radio this morning and it astonishes you when something like this peels away your bubble and shines a little light on it.

Virtually nobody supports asset seizure without due process. You're not some brilliant mystic who's leading us from the dark on this, you're just an indolent twat who refuses to live in the real world.

OOh, I have the perfect song for the next time you open it up.

Lenny_da_Hog: Does Fark yet have a word for threads where the headline seems like obvious bullshiat that wouldn't be read if it didn't have a click-bait headline, and you don't want to reward the source with a click-through, so you just go into the thread comments to see *how* it was bullshiat from all the other Farkers?

Yes.  They are called "threads".

I don't buy this story for a minute. No business in Michigan could possibly have $35k on hand

Hey you know what -- the Federal government does suck a great job we should let them run our health care.

I'm sure nothing bad will happen! They will do great!

Exceedingly lame.  Even for you.

You should maybe try an alt or something.

The DiA shtick has become tired and boring.

This isn't true. It hasn't become tired and boring; it was tired and boring ab initio.

phaseolus: Dancin_In_Anson: TFA: Last year, Pennsylvania Judge Dan Pellegrini called the practice "state sanctioned theft"

Oh man...the Fark Dependents® aren't going to like that one bit.

You realize that almost every post in this thread contradicts your point, don't you?

What do the people in the thread have to do with anything? D_I_A is in a constant war with the "liberals" in his head. What's going on in reality matters not to his delusional internal struggle.

But the use of asset forfeiture, both civil and criminal, soared at the federal level under the current administration, growing from $500 million in 2003, to $1.8 billion in 2011.

CPennypacker: Wait, what did Paul Krugman do?

I can tell you what he didn't do...audit the Fed.

The article makes it sound like the Patriot Act is the sort of thing that enables this, not, say, quantitative easing. So it doesn't seem fair to take a shot at Krugman, unless you're the sort of libertarian who if he can't have freedom will settle for slurping the curdled slop out of some wrinkled white guy's yambag.
