Protection Racket

I think, therefore I Am…

I am starting to really like this category as it is all about what I think.  I don’t have to spend a lot of time doing research, linking to articles, you know the hard, time consuming stuff.  The thing that is bothering me today is the whole identity theft thing.  I hate to use the word scam, but what do you call an industry that purports to protect you from harm caused by others and allowed by others?

A snapshop paints a thousand words this one of Yahoo tells you what the mainstream media wants you to read

This story about identity theft sounds about as exciting the next story about identity theft except that the perpetrator was not interested in stealing money or assets. Zach Edwards has been accused and arrested for attempting to steal the identity of Matt Schultz. This is still not titillating for you? Here is the headline from the story from the Des Moines Register:

Iowa Secretary of State Matt Schultz Targeted for Identity Theft by Former Obama Staffer

Taxation = Theft

The following video was from a blog (AndyLogic) with the above title and is pretty well done and should be required viewing for all school students as a balance to the statist views now taught. 

The only edit that I would suggest is where the “bill” is sent to George.  Our politicians have long figured out that by withholding the tax money from our paychecks BEFORE we get the money is a pretty effective way of hiding their theft.  We don’t truly miss what we never had.  I have found this despicable practice used when a labor union that I have not voluntarily joined takes their “fair share” of my earnings.  There are efforts in some states to cease payroll deductions for union dues.  What should the state government act as a collector for the labor unions?  You might be able to take an educated guess the party affiliation of the legislature and governor of those states.
