    Have "government-agents" bust down your door?

    I don't know ANYONE who's ever had their door busted down by "government-agents" and those that do are usually on TV. You know : drug dealers, crazy Christian sects, people running illegal slave shops out of hangers, Russian mob bosses in movies, crazy Cuban people kidnapping little kids. People throw the "government-agents busting down your door" card for even the most trivial of things. It's like the government has a squadron of "agents" just ready to bust down the door of some irrelevant shmuck in Northern Kansas.

    I've never even had a "government-agent" leave me a notice much less kick down my door but I know people who'll swear that this happens a lot in America. This all made me wonder. How many people here have had these 'government-agents' bust down their doors? And did they(the agents) give a reason? Any reason at all? If it's never happen to you but you at least know somebody this has happened to, would you please be kind enough to post their story? Why the 'agents' busted down their door? Or at least why they claimed they were justified to do so?

    All the time, like my buddy Ed Brown for tax resistance.

    And government agents' time isn't very valuable - they can wait until you come out.

    It's never happened to me before and I'm willing to bet that in 99.9999% of the cases where it did happen, there was a damn good reason.

    Every government agent that contacted me always called my cell phone.
