I never thought I'd see the day when my own government would be my mortal enemy. All the WWII vets in my family must be spinning in their graves.

This was probably one of those ideas we all thought was a good one, when it was first proposed. Yeah, take stuff the bad guys use for their criminal activities, and use their own money to fight them.

Then, after a while, it starts to get hard to tell the bad guys from the good guys. Turns out a lot of the good guys are just as greedy as the bad guys.
