The U.S. Goverment Has Gone Fascist

This, is the 3:00 afternoon news, with your host Jim Limach of AP News (you can now arrest me for identity theft.)

I am sorry to report that all 3 branches of the U.S. government have finally slid to completely unacceptable levels. I refer to an article that mentions how two drug dealers almost had their gold teeth removed as "seizable assets."

After seeing this article, the first thing that came to mind were the Jewish victims of the Nazis, who had their gold fillings yanked out of their mouths to pay for the war effort.

I believe that is all that needs to be said about this. God help us all.


Prosecutors tried to seize gold caps from drug suspects' teeth

TACOMA, Wash. (AP) — Two drug suspects in Washington state nearly had some unwanted dental work.

Government lawyers tried to confiscate the gold tooth caps from the mouths of the two men, saying the dental work qualified as seizable assets.

The two were in a vehicle on the way to a dental clinic by the time a judge was persuaded to stop the procedure. Lawyers and documents from the case say that prosecutors had a warrant to seize the gold dental work, but they eventually abandoned the effort.

As it turns out, the caps — which can cost tens of thousands of dollars for a full set — weren't removable.

A spokeswoman for the U.S. attorney's office in Seattle says prosecutors were "under the impression that these snapped out like a retainer."
