I'd say that this is unbelievable but it's not.  And it's not just this out of control administration.  It's that Americans have let this get to this point.

In 2010 the Farm Bill contained verbiage removing the statute of limitations on debts owed to the gummit.  All well and good - a debt is a debt and one should pay one's debts, even if you think we are overtaxed by a fiducially irresponsible bunch of horse's patooties.  I get this part.

The part that needs to be torn down, stomped on, and flushed down the crapper is that the gummit is now collecting the debts of deceased debtors from their families by snatching their tax returns.  Ol' Mom was overpaid by the IRS and has died?  YOU get to pay the debt.  From The Washington Post:

A few weeks ago, with no notice, the U.S. government intercepted Mary Grice’s tax refunds from both the IRS and the state of Maryland. Grice had no idea that Uncle Sam had seized her money until some days later, when she got a letter saying that her refund had gone to satisfy an old debt to the government — a very old debt.
When Grice was 4, back in 1960, her father died, leaving her mother with five children to raise. Until the kids turned 18, Sadie Grice got survivor benefits from Social Security to help feed and clothe them. Now, Social Security claims it overpaid someone in the Grice family — it’s not sure who — in 1977. After 37 years of silence, four years after Sadie Grice died, the government is coming after her daughter. Why the feds chose to take Mary’s money, rather than her surviving siblings’, is a mystery.

Across the nation, hundreds of thousands of taxpayers who are expecting refunds this month are instead getting letters like the one Grice got, informing them that because of a debt they never knew about — often a debt incurred by their parents — the government has confiscated their check.
We have piles of evidence that government agencies are out of control.  When the heck are Americans going to get off their butts and fight this crap?

Full story here.


  1. I think the protesters who are contesting BLM's actions against the Bundy ranch may be the actual beginning of the rebellion. But you know what they say: "Predictions are difficult, especially when they're about the future."

    But it could well be that historians will look at what's going on right now in Nevada and say, "There. There's where it began."

    1. I saw something that indicated they are going after GRANDCHILDREN as well. People need to take that to court immediately. I'm pretty sure the law says that once you've publish the declaration that anyone who has a debt claim has a month to come forward, that's it. The estate is closed if no one comes forward. Ironic that the same people who are gung ho about this are the same ones who think kids brought into the US illegally should be allowed to stay because they shouldn't be punished for the crime their parents committed in bringing them here.
