If a LOT of people tried to make a run on the banks, the government would allow then to limit access to your money. Pretty sure that exact thing either happened or almost happened during the crash of 2008.
Also, the issue of cops confiscating money has nothing to do with "drunks" as you say, but is rather a "legal" means of relieving people who have committed no crime of their money - it's called civil forfeiture, and cops aren't the only ones doing it. Cross reference that term with the city of Philadelphia, and prepare to be utterly disgusted.
So log in to post, thus earning a chance at mod points, so you can be, in your own mind, the one Guy who uses them correctly.
Posting as AC then bitching about the mod system is like staying home on election day then whining that your vote didn't count.
I used to carry a pocket watch when I was a teen, but I found having to dig in my pocket to know what time it is too inconvenient.
When the Constitution was written, "income" was defined as "profits from business transactions," not money exchanged for labor. In other words, the entire modern concept of "income taxes" is a complete FUCK YOU to the nation's less well off population.
I don't blame you for failing to understand the distinction; after all, it has been a century since the wealthy pulled off that particular scam.
Just wait until Ballmer starts pushing for H1b's for players...
Players perhaps not, but there are janitors, technicians, AV guys, and a host of other positions that he very well could replace with low wage immigrant workers.
I agree. Close your bank accounts, use check cashing services and pay everything with cash...
Until you get pulled over by a police officer and he confiscates all your cash under the exact same fucked up law.
Ever seen a big government that wasn't bad? I sure can't think of any.
All Perhaps love bigger rockets.
That should say "Kerbals " not Perhaps. Joke ruined.
That's all well and good, but will they earn enough science points to unlock the next tier of equipment?
I vote bigger rockets. All Perhaps love bigger rockets.
Lol, I see what you did there
Like the time the ACLU fought for the KKK's right to protest on the courthouse steps? Or rather, are you making a snap judgement based on a preconceived notion you got not from your own research into the organization, but from some media outlet?
My guess, the latter.
Considering the general working conditions, I wouldn't be surprised if they made the migrants sleep on pallets in the basement.
A) so would a fence
B) cops have no interest in keeping kids off your lawn.
I didn't know Occupy, the Tea Party, gun owners, and people who buy stuff with cash were "barely anybody."
All groups that were put on a terrorist watch list at some point or another, and I know I left a bunch out.
