The debt police

It’s interesting to see how the education sector is one that is leading the move towards debt-based totalitarianism. Student loans are about the only loans that aren’t discharged by bankruptcy, and I tend to doubt that the Department of Education’s SWAT teams (!?!) are going to be invading any homes over unpaid credit card debts:

Kenneth Wright does not have a criminal record and he had no reason to believe a S.W.A.T team would be breaking down his door at 6 a.m. on Tuesday.

“I look out of my window and I see 15 police officers,” Wright said. Wright came downstairs in his boxer shorts as the officers team barged through his front door. Wright said an officer grabbed him by the neck and led him outside on his front lawn. “He had his knee on my back and I had no idea why they were there,” Wright said….

Wright said he later went to the mayor and Stockton Police Department, but the city of Stockton had nothing to do with Wright’s search warrant. The U.S. Department of Education issued the search and called in S.W.A.T for his wife’s defaulted student loans.

This raises numerous questions:

1. Why is the U.S. Department of Education permitted to issue warrants or call SWAT teams?

2. Why would the SWAT team assault an individual who is not responsible for the debts?

3. Upon which specific date was America pronounced dead?

If this doesn’t convince you that the U.S. Constitution is dead, America is dead, and we are watching the galvanic twitchings of a corpse, I don’t know what will. Personally, I’m rather looking forward to the first press conference by the Department of Education explaining why they accidentally killed an old woman who never went to college over the unpaid student loans of some clueless wonder with a useless college degree.

Of course, the youfs are so utterly stupid that even events like this won’t slow down the rate at which they are applying for student loans. Because an education is the best investment anyone can possibly make….
