"American Injustice: Authorities uncovered that Wachovia bank laundered $378.4 billion for a Mexican drug cartel. The bank was fined just $50 million (2% of its profits) and no one went to jail. But, we lock up kids over a dime bag of pot. Let that sink in."

"There should be a draft where every young person has to do one year of something - military, public works - something so that we feel invested in the same game, because that's the part we've lost." - John Stewart ""We should extort money from people and pay men with guns to force people to do arbitrary, and sometimes criminal things, for at least a year. That way, we'd all feel united as slaves." - Translation, by Jeff Berwick

My Commentary: Never forget that, in the end, every law is enforced at gunpoint, and under threat of abduction and imprisonment. So, please stop suggesting the use of State violence against peaceful people in your hopelessly naive, pathetically misguided attempt to “help.”

Think volunteer public service is a good idea? Cool! Then, get off your ass, and get to work! Try leading by example, and stop stooping to coercion!

Paying Taxes Will NEVER Qualify as Giving to “Charity”

As I scrolled through my Facebook news feed, I discovered the following artwork here, being shared by the page, “-GET Involved! You Live Here-,” and originally posted it to my own wall, along with commentary…

"It's amazing to me how many people think that voting to have the government give poor people money is compassion. Helping poor and suffering people yourself is compassion. Voting for our government to use guns to give money to help poor and suffering people is immoral self-righteous bullying laziness. People need to be fed, medicated, educated, clothed, and sheltered. If we're compassionate, we'll help them, but you get no moral credit for forcing other people to do what you think is right. There is great joy in helping people, but no joy in doing it at gunpoint." - Penn Jillette
