It is not what is in this bill that is worrying - it is the direction. First you declare authority. Then you squeeze.

First the camps THEN the ovens.

We've descended to argumentum ad hitlerium already? Perfect. That means I can ignore this thread with a clear conscience.

I see the funny man with the mustache has clouded your mind.

What I was illustrating is that things progress. You don't start out will full fledged tyranny in even the worst of regimes.
Find out just what any people will quietly submit to and you have the exact measure of the injustice and wrong which will be imposed on them. Fredrick Douglas
So first thing is: get some submission. Then get some more. Make it habitual. Then more.

Not at all. We can relate the current situation to the Armenian genocide, the mass disarming and murder of rural armenians by Turkish Army forces prior to WWI. 3 million murdered.

Or we can refer to the Cultural Revolution of Mao (which is apropos given several administration officials have publicly expressed admiration for Mao) which murdered at least 50 million chinese.

Or perhaps Stalin's purges in the 1930's, result, 40 million dead. Or his postwar extermination of Polish POWs released from Nazi camps and treacherously turned over to the Soviets by Roosevelt. (the Polish leadership killed yesterday in that plane crash were headed to Katyn Forest to commemorate the Katyn Massacre)... something like a half million murdered in less than a week.

Here's how it's going to work. People more or less giving up property rights and the realtors and lawyers being the enablers.:

You know, I actually should welcome silly rumors like this.
Maybe, by the time I can afford one, rumors like this will have driven the real- estate prices in the US so far into the ground that I will get a dream house for a real steal. Cool!

I'm as wired into the contractor community as I was when I worked at the hardware store. It does seem like there is a ton more BS than there used to be. Considering what the Administration is already doing:

I don't think that silly rumors is an apt description of what is going on

The price of the house just went down by the cost of the lead inspection/renovation. The money got pocketed by the contractors. You won't see a nickel of it.
