Federal & Local Law Enforcement Agencies Try to Take Family Motel from Innocent Owners

• youtube (h/t The Agitator)

Imagine you own a million-dollar piece of property free and clear, but then the federal government and local law enforcement agents announce that they are going to take it from you, not compensate you one dime, and then use the money they get from selling your land to pad their budgets—all this even though you have never so much as been accused of a crime, let alone convicted of one.

    So you want to OWN simething? Well, I've said it a hundred times:  If you wan to own something of value, do it somewhere where the government can't covet it or, at the very least, make it something they don't  covet. The forfeiture "laws" are codified theft and nothing else. If you have something the pwers that be want, they will steal it from you - "legally"! If you don't believe me, check the record(s). The thousands of victims of this crap will tell you the true story.

     If you believe for a moment that this is a nation of laws, you'd better clarify your definition of "laws". The "rule of law" in the land of the free and the home of the slave is something very different than you and I are conned into believing, or what many have fought and died for. "The rule of law' is the "lae of the rulers"!

      What does anyone really expect of a pre-socialist, authoritatian state?

       Sorry, kids...You all deserve better than what you are about to inherit. Though it won't do any good, you can blame the smug, self-involved assholes of my generation for letting it slip away and selling out the second-rate elitists and corporate shills who have brought us all to the brink. Don't let anyone tell you that this is a simple matter of "class warfare" and "anti-capitalism". That's a crock:  It is a colusive abuse of power and greed, for its own sake. It is at least two generation - your father's and grandfather's - of sell-out mentality and the squandering of a rich and functional legacy of individual freedom, personal responsibility, economic opportunity, and self-sacrifice, given up to a cabal of worthless, mental midgets and traitors, whose only real skills tend toward sycophantic self-interest and ass-kissing.

     If you want to own something to leave to your children, own it in another country - say, Canada. If you want to acquire wealth, do it in Hong Kong. Believe it or not, the whole world doesn't turn on the American dime. If it did, we'd all be starving, working the corporate gulag, and voting for a real king.

      As long as there are forfeiture "laws", nothing of value is safe from the robber barons who populate Washington, DC.
