Nothing Is Safe from the Thieves Who Rule Us April 11, 2011
Will Grigg’s Liberty Minute

If you have it, they will find a way to steal it from you. This is the modus operandi of every thief, from the petty cut-purse and small-time con man to the inconceivably wretched people running the foul, degenerate enterprise called government.
Anybody who thinks that description is too harsh should have a chat with San Francisco resident Carla Ruff, who lost tens of thousands of dollars’ worth of heirloom jewelry and irreplaceable personal documents after officials from the California Department of Unclaimed Property seized her safe-deposit box.
Mrs. Ruff – who lived a few blocks from the bank – maintains a checking account, and had paid her rental fee. She wasn’t dead or missing, nor was her property unclaimed. This hardly matters to the criminals running the California state government, who have stealthily plundered over five billion dollars in supposedly unclaimed property in this fashion.
States are collecting additional billions each year in unclaimed gift card credit, and through the undisguised larceny called “civil asset forfeiture.”
No private criminal syndicate is this despicable.
Let us take back the liberty wherewith Christ has made us free.
