    I never made that conclusion. maybe you should read the 2 articles linked in this thread.
    I have CDO, it's like OCD but the letters are in alphabetical order like they should be.

    I never said they shouldn't be held accountable. I just said it should not be incarceration.

    That's right. What does that have to do with taxes? No one brought up taxes but you.

    Not paying your taxes is As much a "victimless crime" as not paying your fines.
