    You're tied down to a single building and basically spend your time cataloguing books and answering questions so basic the answers to them could be written down on a list of frequently asked questions. And apparently you need a master's degree for that too? Isn't that insane? If you're going that far with your studies you might as... show more

  • Why do conservatives never talk about civil forfeiture?

    More assets were seized by the government, without a conviction or accusation of any crime, than was stolen by thieves, burglars and the mafia. When conservatives say taxes are unconstitutional, why are their government officials letting fascist police officers brutalize and rob the citizenry of their assets, like pirates?
