Government gangsterism in general

Happens to white people too man. This is one such situation everyone gets Fd in. Plus, white people have more shit to steal in the US. And the asians have better lawyers…usually.

Biden couldn’t do anything the elites didn’t want.

So if the elite will steal from the treasury, nothing the president can do about it. The US system is simply too far gone with too much lobbying for any meaningful change to happen that isn’t endorsed by the elites. Maybe that’s why the government must resort to robbery to keep their treasury alive. I’m sorry to sound pessimistic about the US but I seen what happened over the last 30 years, and while everyone might try and stop the downfall, it has been going on for such a long time that there’s no fixing it, and it will only get worse from now.

Sure the best way to enact gun control is to create conditions so that people don’t feel the need to buy guns. But when laws gets made that becomes increasingly unreasonable it never goes away. What happens in the US is people distrust the government deeply and when that happens, people buy guns.

Of course, they still want Social Security, defense, schools, roads and water- they just demand the most fundamental right of all- the right to get stuff without paying

Yea I used to work at the Ben White Walmart, that is not too far from an IRS building… Maybe I remember seeing some black ninjas there sometimes…

That would explain why they weren’t very effective :expressionless:

I disagree. Government funding problems simply mean not enough taxes have been collected. One of the problems is that many or most government programs, most “wars on” are never won, only expanded.

IRS doesn’t decide how much of that collected revenue is used, Congress does, and Congress doesn’t want to fund them well.


Uh, the IRS has been gutted by Republicans in Congress, who have ordered them to concentrate their efforts on the Earned Income Tax Credit (tax relief to low income families, a small portion of the total), and allow wealthy tax cheats to get off without investigation.
Nice try deflecting for tax-fraud billionaires, though.

I’m not sure why you’re telling me this. I’m well aware of how the IRS functions and how it is funded. As far as I’m concerned the lack of funds to the IRS should be replicated across the board. There’s no need for forever government programs, when consolidated streamlining would seem to be more efficient.

A slave owner takes January through December of a slave’s work. = highest moral indignation

Slave owner points a gun at a slave, “Will be nice to you this year. I’ll only take all your labor from January to March or April.”

We all say, “Okay.”

I only say Biden because he is the big pubba now. All presidents before failed too. my point was its disingenuous to rant on about something without talking about the root cause of the problems. tHis is something democrats and republicans all fail at. I am coastal canadian, democrats to me are right wing luntaics haha. So ya, i stand by my point :slight_smile: you can change the word Biden to any of the following if you like: Trump, Obama, Bush, Clinton, Old bush and so on.

I agree, however…as @bree and others have mentioned, you get bogus fees/fines that you cannot contest. This becomes a gangster state immediately in this type of situation.

You missed my point about how shit would get corrected by weeks end in said scenario :wink: if you want to wait 30 years with no logicial results…thats on you haha.

Lots of Americans are like this. USA is always number one no matter how Americans live. Even in communist China you can’t go to jail because you can’t pay a fine (the most they can do is garnish wages, or seize properties), but in the US you can, and most Americans think it’s right.

To top this, jury’s are low paid grumpy people ripped from their jobs and family to forcefully attend an event they would otherwise never do. Then more time is wasted the longer it drags. This already puts the accused in a huge disadvantage, even if inno.

I think jury’s are usually by request, but not sure if certain cases are mandatory.

If it’s this bad they might as well just do away with grand juries because it’s just pointless. Why waste people’s time when it’s just the prosecutor running the show anyways. Maybe just limit juries to capital cases.

But ever since those crime laws in 1996 incarceration in the US has shot way up, more people locked up than even Stalin during the height of the purge.

Lol. In China you go to jail for saying you want clean water or you watched youtube…

I don’t know. People complain to and about government officials on WeChat all the time, and nobody goes to jail. I mean if they aren’t doing a good job the CCP isn’t going to cover for them either. Just like in Taiwan people complain to and about government officials all the time too. But you can go to jail for insulting them (you can in Taiwan too).

The difference is in the US you can complain all you want but nobody will listen. So road and healthcare continues to be crap because Americans don’t matter to Washington. I think Puerto Rico still haven’t been fully rebuilt, and Flint, MI still has dirty water.
