    Wayyyyy off topic.
    I challenged a conservative poster who brought up (e.g. lied about) the IRS, which opened a can of worms.

    Sorry, but onus is on you to show a connection. Not me to disprove a connection.

    Agreed...and the administration should hang their head in shame for how little the middle class was taken into consideration. They knew the impact of the premiums, they failed to share that with the US taxpayers.

    Err. No.
    Details of the operation

    Some merchant categories that the FDIC had listed until July 2014 as being associated with high-risk activity include, but are not limited to (until the FDIC revised the original policy in July 2014):[9]

    • Ammunition Sales
    • Cable Box De-scramblers
    • Coin Dealers
    • Credit Card Schemes
    • Credit Repair Services
    • Dating Services
    • Debt Consolidation Scams
    • Drug Paraphernalia
    • Escort Services
    • Firearms Sales
    • Fireworks Sales
    • Get Rich Products
    • Government Grants
    • Home-Based Charities
    • Life-Time Guarantees
    • Life-Time Memberships
    • Lottery Sales
    • Mailing Lists/Personal Info
    • Money Transfer Networks
    • On-line Gambling
    • Payday Loans
    • Pharmaceutical Sales
    • Ponzi Schemes
    • Pornography[10]
    • Pyramid-Type Sales
    • Racist Materials
    • Surveillance Equipment
    • Telemarketing
    • Tobacco Sales
    • Travel Clubs


    Operation Choke Point - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    WTF is wrong with Ammunition Sales, Coin Dealers, Firearms Sales, Fireworks Sales, Home-Based Charities, Pharmaceutical Sales, Surveillance Equipment, Tobacco Sales?? Other than not aligning to the liberal / progressive / Democratic 'push agenda'?

    I'll grant you that the other ones are shady, but I cast no moral relativism on this. If they are owned and operated within the letter of the law, then it's illegal for the government to harass them. PERIOD.

    Brennan Appel, owner of Global Hookah Distributors, said he realized he was a victim of Operation Choke Point after he got a letter from Bank of America telling him that after 12 years of working together, it was closing all his business and personal accounts.

    Appel said a few months later, his payment-processing company also dropped him. "I started this business when I was 18 years old, funded my way through college with it and have continued on growing the company into what it is today. And I feel like, why do you get punished when you are growing a company?"

    Appel began recording his conversations with Alex Bacon, the president of EFT which was his payment processor. He wanted to prove he was the target of Operation Choke Point.
    . . .
    Initially, the FDIC put out a list of 30 high-risk businesses, but that list has since been rescinded.

    So killing off entrepreneurs of small businesses. That's a pretty low blow to the middle class, don't you think?

    The above contradicts your ill-informed view.

    No, I think that DOJ is using illegal means to harass lawful civilians engaged in lawful acts in their pursuit of happiness.

    On this point we agree.

    This abuse of government power, this liberal / progressive / Democratic push agenda cannot be allowed to proceed. It needs to be terminated forthwith, and those responsible criminally charged with this abuse of government power, so as to forestall another recurrence.

    Your posts are liberal garbage
    I want to take this opportunity to thank you for contributing to my healthcare. For years I have not been able to afford any health insurance, but now, because of Obamacare, I have a policy. It is infinitely better than the one I had before. I pay my $90 every month and am grateful for the $800 subsidy you and my other friends provide. Thank you.

    I say what I want all the time. I voice my opinion. While I certainly do not like our direction as a country, we are certainly not Nazi Germany. Its ok not to like political correctness, but Mr. Carson could benefit from some clue about the country he lives in.

    It's not "affordable health care" it is ever more costly health insurance subsidized by middle class tax dollars with huge deductibles that force you to pay doctors visits for actual illnesses out of pocket anyway.

    Why do you look at a list like that and see a political agenda?
