A FAIR tax in lieu of Federal Income tax will never happen, sadly. Think of the money you could save the country by eliminating the IRS! It takes almost $12 billion a year to run the IRS. Replace it...

Because that has been the pattern for just about every single flu-like virus ever. Bird flu, swine flu, MERS, SARS, Hanta virus, Ebola virus, whatever.

If the dealer gets popped, they can show they did their due diligence - they asked you to sign an attestation that it hadn't been tampered with. They didn't have to look any further.
