    Because coins and pornography don't strike me as useful targets for political gain.

    So then why do you believe it's justified for the government to hassle legitimate and lawful operating businesses and their owners?

    Nice dodge BTW, there's a long list who are (including those 2), and its' obviously ones that have run afoul of the administration's agenda.

    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'?
    Besides ammunition sales which one of those can you really make an argument for as something either liberal or conservative....also, as of 2015 the guidance points to individual sellers rather than whole industries...which it should of done in the first place.


    So killing off entrepreneurs of small businesses. That's a pretty low blow to the middle class, don't you think?
    Well it does depend on the business doesn't it? If it's a coin dealer that has a high amount of sales which have been associated with money laundering lets say that's a little more palatable. Still don't agree with the policy.

    The above contradicts your ill-informed view.
    No it doesn't....since when has a Hookah seller been synonymous with conservative Americans? Pharmaceutical sales? Pornography? The only thing on that list that even gives off a whiff of targeting would be weapon sales and ammunition sales...that's it.

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

    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.
    They wont, most likely you will say a change of policy that creates a much more strict guidance for the FDIC. We've already seen some changes in which they have changed the targeting to individual businesses rather than whole industries...

    but to be clear...I do not agree with the policy because there are no charges against these business owners...but it's not a target against Republicans, it's not a target to destroy American and the middle class, it's not a way for the FDIC and DOJ to blow off steam by killing people's livelihood, it was bad procedures written and a lack of guidance.

    I will only need insurance for two more years, then I will be old enough for Medicare.

    Hey, I wish I didn't need a subsidy or didn't have any health problems, but I really don't have a choice. I'm just trying to survive.

    What about the millions of middle class folks that have seen their coverage rot to a shadow of what it was and at a higher cost?

    There was a vastly better way to help you without destroying what was good about the old system. Obamacare ultimately will mean worse care for more money for almost everybody, except the government and wealthy.

    Totally off topic, but with healthcare as low as $22 a month (or $119 or whatever), why are there millions of people still uninsured...what, 30+ million or so? I thought these poor people all wanted insurance but couldn't get it and couldn't afford it?

    Back to Carson. He isn't a serious candidate. Never was. And his problem is he isn't a politician, as evidenced by the fact that he's honest, says what's on his mind, and doesn't bull**** voters (like the rest of them do). That's why he'd be better staying in the field where he is obviously among the best, and leave the politics to the weasels, snakes, manipulators and frauds. We may not like what he says, but he says what he believes. Can't say that about many politicians.

    I would say the country has a long history of electing sociopaths and psychopaths. Obama on the hand is just a narcissistic asshole that is too weak to accept any real challenges to speak of.
