So, Slashdot, what sites can you recommend for a "maybe-ex" /. user?

In order of status/pay and words like that it probably goes something like*

hourly (black market worker)
daily (gray market worker)
weekly (working poor)
bi-weekly (working poor leads)
monthly (working supervisors)
quarterly (management)
whenever (masters of the universe)

*List was hastily made and likely contains hyperbole, generalizations, logical fallacies, and jest.

Apologies, my tone was a little off-key, not trying to attack and I could have left out that last line. I was just wondering whether it is ever the case that the government cannot seize property and assets. Ultimately, I suppose those in power can always exercise that power until the people get fed up and replace it with another power. Take it as a random rant that those with more power can ultimately take what one has. I shouldn't have directed it towards you.
