Via the Silicon Graybeard, we find a family facing $90,000 in fines from the Fed.Gov. It seems that if they don't pay up, they're on the hook for $4 Million in additional fines.
Woah. What sort of nefarious activity have they been up to? What antisocial activity makes them such a threat to the Republic that they're staring down the barrel** of Four Large?
I shouldn't joke about this. Facing a $4 Million dollar fine for selling a few (dozen) bunnies is not funny and could completely ruin this family. It's not funny. It's just that it's at least a little better than executing them on the spot, as the police state did with Jose Guerena in Arizona the other day or Erik Scott in the Las Vegas Costco last summer, or (you can insert a list here).I guess this is the time for me to pro-actively get my TJIC on and say that Catholic Just War Doctrine does not (yet) justify the assassination of Fed.Gov Jack-Booted Thugs® breaking doors down and shooting someone thirty times because they had the wrong house, or thought someone was selling unlicensed rabbits, or something.
Instead, let me offer this up: GOP, you suck and I hate you. It seems that this particular statute was passed in 1989, in the flush of the Reagan Renaissance™, when Conservatives™ Walked The Earth and Small Government™ was signed into law by George Bush major. Glad we had the GOP to keep government small and off our backs. Otherwise, we might have a rabbit infestation, or something.
Oh, and Mitt Romney? You're the reincarnation of George H. W. Bush. You suck, too.
As TJIC used to say, before the Massachusetts Super Cranial Beings*** got their panties in a wad, rope. Some men just need hangin'.
And note to any overly sensitive would-be Philosopher King swooning over my "violent rhetoric", I have two words for you: Bill Ayers. And then you could go look up Will Rogers: There ought to be one day that was Open Season on Senators. Good Lord, the Founding Fathers would have wept. And then they would have been the first to toss the rope over the lamp posts.
And so I say to everyone once again, the problem isn't the Democrats, and the solution isn't the Republicans. The problem is a permanent Political Class who has contempt for you and me. Vote them out.
All of them. And Mitt Romney, I'll take this all back and apologize handsomely if you:
- Say that your first act as President will be to apologize to and pardon Mr. and Mrs. Dollarhit,
- Say that your second act as President will be to fire the entire FDA Department responsible for this atrocity to American Freedom,
- Say that your third act as President will be to fire the U.S. Prosecutor who filed the case, and
- Say that your fourth act as President will be to issue a R-gram**** to the entire Federal workforce saying "Cut the Crap"
* Yeah, yeah, I'm told that Massachusetts doesn't have a proper Soviet. Great. They have an improper Soviet.
** It's a fine backed up by police with guns. Guns with barrels. Duh.
*** You, know, these guys:
**** Look it up, Romney.
